Prophetic Scripture Update #2: Ezekiel 38 – Gog, Magog tensions on the Golan

Developments over the weekend in Iranian and Russian activity behind the Hezbollah’s preparations to launch an attack against Israel’s northern borders with Lebanon and Syria, together with Israel’s strikes against sophisticated weapons factories and arsenals there, are building up to such an extent that Israel is now on military alert.

Yesterday’s sequential headlines on Koenig’s World Watch Daily read as follows:

  • Israel-Syria clash: with missile fire Assad is changing rules of the game
  • How Russia is turning Syria into a major naval base for nuclear warships
  • Syrian UN envoy: Putin sent messages to Israel its freedom to act in Syria is over
  • Syrian president Assad: we’re counting on Russia to prevent a conflict with Israel
  • ‘Hezbollah is preparing for war’.

Finer details may be read in Debkafile ‘exclusive reports’, which include intelligence on Iran’s involvement at top military level:

  • Israeli-Russian clash over Hizbollah’s Golan grab
  • Israeli drone crashes. Russia fails to de-escalate.
Ezekiel: Gog & Magog

The Gog and Magog war against Israel is described in chapters 38 and 39 of the Book of Ezekiel. The prophet received a word from the Lord to ‘set his face’ against Gog, leader of a coalition of evil nations north of Israel and which include Persia/Iran. Most Bible scholars regard those named peoples as coming from the land between and north of the Black and Caspian Seas. ie modern Russia. The Lord  has a purpose for this battle, viz:

“So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel. I will not let them profane My name anymore – Then the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.” (Ezek 38:7 NKJV)

This battle also features in Revelation 20:7-10 as precursor to the battle of Armageddon and satan’s doom in the fiery lake.

Prophetic Scripture Update #1: Ezekiel – the UK AND USA as western Tarshish

Nero_6Morning coffee revelation again! It was Friday 24th February when I spotted this inside-page headline in my paper’s world news section: ‘Commonwealth Invites US to Join the Club’.  I grasped the unusual significance of this news immediately because it relates to a questionable claim I’d read 30 years ago as a non-Christian and relegated to the proverbial ‘pending tray’. It’s the notion of ancient Britain possibly being biblical Tarshish.

Invisible HandThe Invisible Hand, written from a secular standpoint by Victor Dunstan, gave me an intriguing introduction to Bible prophecy. What actually happened simultaneously with my fanning through its pages after receiving it as a gift was jaw-dropping. As a consequence, 15 years later I began following world events to watch whether or not they tallied with biblical prophecy – AND echoes of that mid-1980’s news re-appeared decades later on a couple of anniversaries of this blog – see The ‘Invisible Hand’ Reappears at Another Anniversary: Spooky! for the full story.

So this recent news I read a fortnight ago reminded me of one of the author’s claims and, although revisited during the EU Referendum, I’d certainly give it some credibility now.

MOREOVER, it cleanly clouts Obama’s threat to put “Britain at the back of the queue” in US trade negotiations into oblivion!!

That news in the Telegraph’s broadsheet is textual only, but Google gives a well-illustrated version of the print-copy in the (Canadian) National Post’s In a Project Backed by The Queen, Commonwealth Invites the U.S. to Become ‘Associate Member’. (A report for non-subscribers is now available online asExclusive: United States could become an ‘Associate Member’ of the Commonwealth’, the url for which uses an insightful earlier headline > http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/02/23/donald-trumps-love-royal-family-may-see-united-states-join-commonwealth/ – note: does not open in new window)

And surprise surprise! The Canadian version leads with a photo of Donald Trump and Theresa May – in her “Redcoats are coming” outfit – walking together along the White House’s colonnades. (Puzzled by my reference, then see Fulfilled Prophecies #16.)

How exceptionally appropriate is this news relating to the improved – and revolutionary! – relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States, especially when taking a possible Biblical aspect into the equation!

[Also very timely was Dr Sharon Stone’s subsequent mentoring day in Windsor on Jesus making Himself known as King in this season and that we’re coming into areas of His rule and our own role in dominion and authority. She defines ‘king’ as “The king whose word is law and obeyed is one who rules”, and in referring to George III and to Bonaparte, said “Revolutions come when people don’t listen to law eg. 2016’s insurrection in the USA and what happened here and in us, turning us toward heaven’s rule”.  I’d already drafted the previous paragraph’s wording – so maybe her points act as confirmation?]

How can this news relate to the Bible, you may ask?

emmaus-group-tarshishDo you recall reading on this blog about a possible connection between ancient Tarshish and Britain, especially with our global community of nations, or ‘common-wealth’?  Of these our previous colonies in North America are some of the oldest.

Check A Biblical Basis for Brexit, courtesy of The Emmaus Group, for a lucid case for the British Isles as the western descendants, if not original location, of ancient Tarshish.

Their case is based upon these texts: Ezekiel 19:2-3, 38:13, Isaiah 2:16, 66:19, Psalm 72:10. The Invisible Hand also has Jonah 1:3 but adds Ezekiel 27:12-26, Isaiah 60:9, 1 Chron 9:21 (with 1 Kings 9:26-27) and Psalm 48:7.  (Verses shown bold are usually regarded as prophetic, especially pertaining to the ‘Gog-Magog’ war.)

Note that the period in question is about 3,000 years ago, centuries before Classical Greece and Rome became established and later became imperial superpowers across the Near East. At this time of the ‘Greek Dark Ages’, the enterprising, sea-faring port of Tyre and its Phoenician civilisation had spread across the Mediterranean.

My study bible offers a noteworthy point on the geographical location of Tarsish under prophetic Ezekiel’s ‘Lament for Tyre’ (chapter 27) which states, (v12) “Tarshish was your merchant…(13) Jaban, Tubal and Meshech were your traders…” So too were Togarmah, Dedan, Syria, Judah and theland of Israel, Damascus, Dan and Javan, Arabia and Kedar, Sheba and Raamah, Haran, Canneh, Eden…Assyria and Chilmad. The footnote reads:

27:12-24 The most complete and extensive list of trading communities found anywhere in scripture. The list moves geographically from the west to east and shows an accurate knowledge of the commercial activity of that day.

27:12 Tarshish is generally identified as a city or territory in the Western Mediterranean, perhaps Tartessus in Spain.

In the Royal Commonwealth Society’s plan to open a branch in New York, its director Michael Lake would welcome bringing the United States into the fold as an “associate member”. To quote the report:

‘The advantage of the Commonwealth, Mr Lake said, is that it operates less formally than governments, as a loose arrangement that is furthered by common values and culture.

“It works because companies find it easier and more congenial to work in Commonwealth countries,” he said…”The Queen is our patron and I see her from time to time, and she makes it clear to me that the Commonwealth is a priority to her…”.’

It would, he says, further Britain’s ties with America with whom we have a common lingual bond and develop new connections between us – AND, in my humble opinion, may bring about a fulfillment of Old Testament scripture!

In fact, it would enable the ‘Bridge over the Pond’ already carrying Godly spiritual ‘traffic’ to bear business and political ‘traffic lanes’ as well.

Soon, the ‘lioness’ may have her ‘young lions’ all ‘present and correct’ in preparation for the prophesied End-times.

US, Russian & Turkish generals meet to avert clash in Syria

Debkafile’s exclusive report of Tuesday 7 March 2017 reminds me of December’s prayer alert from Veronika west concerning Russia and America against ISIS.

After analysing the six urgent challenges facing American, Russian and Turkish forces, Debka updates its Monday’s news of US armoured column deployed around strategic town of Manbij held by Russian-backed forces to deter aggression other than with ISIS as follows: 

‘For the first time ever, the top soldiers of the United States, Russia and Turkey are holding a secret meeting in the Turkish town of Antalya for an urgent two-day effort to avert a clash between their three armies, which stand ominously face to face in northern Syria….’

The report concludes: Debkafile’s military sources describe this unique rendezvous as the most important US-Russian military meeting since Donald Trump took office on Jan. 20.

‘The three generals are most certainly working with open lines to their presidents – Gen. Dunford to President Trump; Gen. Gerasimov, to Vladimir Putin; and Gen. Akar, to Tayyip Erdogan. If they succeed in pulling off deals for working together, with their presidents’ endorsement, Trump will have achieved his oft-repeated target of teaming up with Moscow for eradicating ISIS.

‘Putin, too, will have chalked up an historic diplomatic and strategic feat. For the first time since the end of World War II, and after years of cold war, the Russian and American armies will come together to fight a common enemy, namely radical Islamic terror, and create an umbrella for the Russian military operation to branch out into Iraq.

‘Erdogan will also come out ahead of the game. Turkey and its army will become strategic partners in determining Syria’s future and fighting ISIS. And Barack Obama’s departure from the White House will have marked the start of Turkey’s ascent to regional power status ahead of Iran.’

Breaking news: Iran ousted from Syria in Trump-Putin safe zones deal

Exclusive DebkaFile report ‘Trump-Putin Safe Zones Deal Ousts Iran From Syria’ opens as follows:

syria-per-debka

‘Syria stands on the threshold of dramatic changes that will directly impact on the strategic and military situation along the Syrian borders with Israel and Jordan, debkafile reports exclusively. They derive from a deal struck this week by US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to establish US, Russian and Turkish security zones in Syria. This scheme will transfer military control of the country to those three powers. Each of them will be responsible for a zone whose borders will be defined and agreed upon by Washington, Moscow and Ankara.

‘As part of this arrangement, all forces from the Iranian military, the pro-Iranian Shiite militias and Hizballah will be required to leave Syria…’ continue reading.

A Biblical Basis for Brexit

A possible identity of the British Isles in the Bible is something I was aware of long before becoming a Christian. Thank you Jonathan Ely at Why Leave the EU? for your link to this article, and for the kind permission of The Emmaus Group, which presents a lucid case for Britain being the ancient land of Tarshish.:

WHY BRITAIN HAS TO LEAVE THE EU – IT’S  GOD’S WILL FOR US!

It is written that God establishes the boundaries of nations and for those who understand the times we are in, you realise we’re getting close to the end of days. So in light of the Referendum outcome, we decided to publish this article as we believe Britain could be the ancient nation of Tarshish, as referred to in Old Testament biblical prophecy. Tarshish is listed as one of the nations that challenges the Gog- Magog confederacy that sets itself up against Israel. Tarshish is also one of the first nations to bring offerings (tribute) to the God of Israel therefore could not be part the Gog-Magog confederacy.

The Emmaus Group believes our deliverance from Europe was God’s will for this nation, for His word does not return void but will perform what He purposes, in the thing for which He sent it (Isaiah 55:11). So be encouraged, but also understand such revelation highlights the times we’re in. Time is now very short and Britain will soon be humbled. What we are witnessing before our very eyes reflects both prophecy and the list of nations in Ezekiel 38. Continue reading

Update on geopolitical status of Syria vis-a-vis USA vs Russia

A very brief note on news and background report on the geopolitical situation behind the horrendously severe conflict in Syria.:

Interviewed by ITV News PM Theresa May reminded everyone the blame lies with the Assad regime and president personally, and she’s deeply pessimistic of any solution in the near future.

The dreadful attack against an aid convoy on 19th Sept could have been in some way connected to breakdown in communications not only between Russia and USA but also with US command over sharing of intelligence, as exclusively reported by Debka in US, Russia on brink of military showdown. Three weeks earlier they’d reported upon the ‘disconnect’ in Obama hands Syria over to Russia.

Over the weekend Bill Koenig’s World Watch Daily covered headlines on the deteriorating  diplomatic situation:

For a sound in-depth analysis read Why Putin Wants Syria published by Middle-East Forum in Spring 2016.

The Drums of War: An Exchange of Insults

Noteworthy that this comes almost exactly a year after a lightning strike on a crane that fell on the Meccan Grand mosque on the 14th anniversary of 9/11 attack and killed/injured hundreds (Why Sept 2015 is Special: Update 2 – Islam refers). It was assumed to be an ‘act of God’!!

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

The year-long saber-rattling rhetoric between Iran and Saudi Arabia was raised another notch this past week.  This is another thread of activity prior to the Second Signpost  or any war – making enemies out of your neighbors.

I wrote in an earlier post about the Hajj stampede in which 400 Iranians died about a year ago. Iran and Saudi Arabia were always at odds, but the Hajj stampede gave Iran an excuse to make an outright enemy out of Saudi Arabia.  In January 2016 Saudi Arabia executed a number of Shia Muslims and then the Saudi embassy in Tehran was attacked.

And now this past week there was another exchange of rhetoric between Iran and the Saudis. This time the exchange was of outright insults, and not just accusations. Supreme leader Khamenei accused Saudi Arabia yet again of mismanaging the Hajj in Mecca. Then came the following slow-motion exchange between Al-Sheikh

The Iran Nuclear Deal “Looks Worse and Worse by the Day”

More bad fruit from Obama’s furtive back-channel dealings with Iran, as reported in email 18 May 2009, plus their current harassment of US naval vessels in Persian Gulf. ADD to that leaked intelligence of Iran’s covert war in Syria run from ‘The Glasshouse’ near Damascus (Daily Mail). AND let’s never forget Iran’s 30 years-long ambition to attack Jerusalem, which is what stimulated my interest in End-Times! (See The Invisible Hand re-appears (2013) and again in 2015 for peculiar ‘coincidental’ way this fact pops up!) See Four ‘Signposts’ of the Books of Daniel and The Apocalypse for introduction to Mark Davidson’s thesis.

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

The quote above was spoken by retired Army General Michael Flynn; this reported by a Reuters story.

According to a report replaced by Washington think tank, the Institute for Science and International Security, the Obama administration and other European governments acted in secret to let Iran keep more of its enriched uranium so that sanctions could be lifted on time. The Obama administration (of course) denies this.

Specifically the report says,

“Among the exemptions outlined in the think tank’s report were two that allowed Iran to exceed the deal’s limits on how much low-enriched uranium (LEU) it can keep in its nuclear facilities, the report said. LEU can be purified into highly enriched, weapons-grade uranium.”

The Reuters article also states,

“It’s now clear President Obama gave away the store to secure a weak agreement that is full of loopholes.”

If the nuclear deal was bad before, how much worse…

4 Signposts perspective: Russia’s withdrawal from Syria

Mark Davidson’s analysis of this in the light of Daniel 8 is noteworthy, keeping in mind the ‘Gog-Magog’ alliance of Ezekiel 38. Debkafile claims last month’s rift between Tehran and Moscow is because of the latter’s collaboration with USA to end the conflict whereas Iran wants hostilities to continue. Their report shows Russia wants to keep its paw in the door. Also, in view of Putin’s disingenuous claims to pull troops out of Ukraine, “which later turned out to be merely routine rotation of forces”, UK’s Foreign Secretary is sceptical, saying “Russia is completely un-transparent about its motives and its plans, (so) we can only speculate.” (Brietbart) UPDATE 16/3: Russia keeping its S-400 anti-aircraft missiles (withheld from Iran at Israel’s request) in Syria until Saudi warplane build-up in Turkey is reversed (Debka Exclusive). So keep watching…

THE FOUR SIGNPOSTS

The news came out today that Putin is withdrawing the main part of Russian forces from Syria. It will maintain the airbase and naval base, but most of the fighter aircraft used in airstrikes and the support forces for those fighters, are being withdrawn. Putin said that the mission is completed.

Russian fighters sit on the tarmac at Hmeimim Airbase near Latakia. Russian fighters sit on the tarmac at Hmeimim Airbase near Latakia.

For those who still cling to the idea that Russia will have a major role in the Middle East during the end times, this would seem like a reversal of what is “supposed to happen.” But for the Signposts, and particularly the Second Signpost, everything continues on course.

Iran needs Assad to stay in power, so that its Shia militants and IRGC can more easily flow men and materiel between the Mediterranean coast and Iran. Before the Russians arrived, Assad was almost on his way out. The…

Return from clinical death reveals End-times urgency and impact of Sept 2015

A viral video in which an Israeli teenager describes what happened and what he learnt about the return of the Messiah whilst clinically dead is making waves around the world. Being controversial as well as fascinating, it raises many questions and reservations.

I first thank a contributor ‘over the pond’ for sending me the information late last month as well as folk here at Father’s House of Prayer for emailing me this week, thereby spurring me into action!

I’d read the first report but not had opportunity to see the video until a few days ago and, having now done so, I recognise its great importance. So I’m posting the video and links to covering articles for your earliest attention.  As the video drew to a close I especially noted that the boy shares an insight directly related to my own observation about the date which he refers to on the End-times! (See Tuesday’s post on September’s importance).

FIRST, read Breaking Israel News’ exclusive report Israeli Teen Returns for 15 mins of Clinical Death with Spiritual Messages Concerning the Coming Redemption. Later, they published an account of the interviewing rabbi’s own near-death experience and thus qualifying him to appreciate Natan’s experience.

(Details of End-times begin at 27:30 mark. My observations will follow in next post.)


As you assess teenage Natan’s account with what Jesus teaches, also watch his face as he recounts the good and troubling parts of what he learned and saw in the ‘movie of the future’.

Also, international body-language expert Susan Constantine’s professional assessment may be read here. (BIN claims her particular expertise lies in detecting deception.)

“Who is like the wise man, and who knows the meaning of a thing? A man’s wisdom makes his face shine, and the boldness of his face is changed.” (Ecclesiastes 8:1)

Dr Maurice Sklar vision: “Tell them all, the Day of The Lord is upon you now!”

As well as receiving a prophetic word re. Israel (on war, times of the Gentiles) during Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles,  28 Sept – 4 Oct), Dr Maurice Sklar reported another personal experience on Facebook. Similar to the vision in chapter 5 of the Book of Revelation, it is re-posted below:

“THE DAY OF THE LORD IS HERE!”

Nearly every day since I have arrived in Jerusalem this year, I have received something from God. Yesterday, as I was brushing my teeth in the bathroom, Connie Wilson, who was in her kitchen preparing a brunch, and who is flowing so strong in the prophetic, began to quote the old praise and worship song from Joel:” Blow the Trumpet in ZION, ZION…for the day of the LORD is….and she paused for a second…it’s HERE!”.

As soon as she spoke the word…HERE…I was caught up in a prophetic experience / vision which lasted several hours. Though I could still function in “the natural” somewhat, I was overwhelmed in my spirit. This is what I experienced: Continue reading

My ‘take’ on Iran vs. Israel

Detail from Eagle-eyed by John Mark Long: www.propheticartists.comIn case you may be unaware of updates to my covering remarks on Joel Rosenberg’s Iran performing its own nuclear inspections, I will briefly relate what happened. Then we’ll get to the real heart of this issue, which I’ve kept an eye on for 30 years. Kindly bear with me…

“Sheer, utter folly!” was my reaction to the eventual news of the nuclear ‘fix’ or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between Iran and the P5+1 (the 5 permanent members of UN Security Council; USA, Russia, Britain, France, China plus Germany) and the EU. The strength of my reaction arose from knowing the Iranian regime’s freely admitted and never rescinded ultimate goal – the downfall and removal of the state of Israel. (See for example, Cranmer’s Iran Nuclear Deal: Obama is Fulfilling Shia ‘End Times’ Prophecy.)

Public’s Positive Attitude

The re-blog attracted informed contributions from a blogger who drew attention to an issue over the source behind the original Associated Press (AP) report. This revealed the fuss was over Iranians already cleaning up a well-known but long-disused site and  journalists’ lack of expertise in appreciating technical complexities. (See AP’s controversial and badly flawed Iran inspection story explained.)

The informative comments on the thread are welcomed and I’d encourage you to take a couple of minutes to check them out, as well as to see the brief video summarising the deal.

Next, I introduced MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) reports on Critical Points to Consider in Understanding the Iranian Nuclear Deal as well as Senior Iran Officials Disclose Confidential Details…

My contributor pointed out MEMRI isn’t a neutral observer and suggested reading about ordinary Iranian’s perceptions of Westerners, as reported in his site The Other Iran. (For example, see Iran’s exceptional reaction to 9/11 attacks.)

Throughout all consideration and discussions we cannot overlook the fact that There’s a Higher Plan at Work…, as Elam Ministries remind us. Their mission is to strengthen and expand Christianity within and beyond Iran. Like Hormoz Shariat’s Iran Alive Ministry, a great deal of teaching and evangelism goes direct to Iranian homes by satellite.

Regime’s Negative Doctrine

1) Then came next day’s news from the semi-official Fars News Agency reporting senior Iranian aide Hossein Sheikholeslam (parliamentary speaker’s Advisor for International Affairs) as saying – Our positions against the usurper Zionist regime have not changed at all; Israel should be annihilated and this is our ultimate slogan.”  (Emphasis RB.)

This came in response to Foreign Secretary Hammond’s remarks upon re-opening the British embassy in Tehran on Sunday following years of strained relations between the two countries. FNA stated,

“Hammond claimed in an interview with the British media that the current Iranian government had displayed a more nuanced approach than its predecessor to a long-running conflict with Israel. Also, on Hammond’s remarks in a meeting with Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in Tehran on Monday that the past hostilities should be forgotten, Sheikholeslam said Tehran will never forget the past and Britain’s colonialist moves.”

2) Last month Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei published a new book called Palestine, a 416-page screed against the Jewish state. The back cover credits Khamenei as “The flag-bearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem”, writes Amir Taheri in Iran publishes book on how to outwit USA and destroy Israel. Rather than reach and keep a nuclear deal, “Iran’s religious leader has another issue on his mind: The destruction of Israel”.

In his forthright, well-argued Has Obama read the Khameini Palestine Book? Jonathan Tobin cites Teheri, claiming “latest evidence of the malevolence of the Islamist regime should be regarded as yet another inarguable reason for Congress to vote the deal down“.

Obama is on record as saying the anti-Semitism of the Iranian leadership doesn’t mean they were not also “interested in survival” or being “rational.” As far as the US president is concerned, the regime’s ideology isn’t something that would influence its decisions. I can only conclude POTUS lives in ‘cloud-cuckoo land’!

Both journalists are quoted in the introductory lead-in to the exclusive, first translation of Khameini’s book. Note especially Tobin’s:

‘The Khamenei Palestine book is important not in and of itself but because the regime’s obsession with Israel is a key to its foreign policy. Iran constitutes a grave threat to neighboring Arab countries that are at least as angry about the president’s embrace of Tehran as the Israelis since their nuclear status would undermine their security…it is the fixation on Israel and Zionism that really animates their expansionism and aid for terror groups. (Underline added.)

‘As Taheri notes in his article on the book, Khamenei distinguishes his idée fixe about destroying Israel from European anti-Semitism. Rather, he insists, that his policy derives from “well established Islamic principles”. Chief among them is the idea that any land that was once ruled by Muslims cannot be conceded to non-believers no matter who lives there now…(Israel’s) central location in the middle of the Muslim and Arab worlds and the fact that Jews, a despised minority people, now rule it makes its existence particularly objectionable to Islamists like Khamenei.’

3) We now go full circle back to 1980’s with last week’s The Algemeine’s report (source The Investigative Terrorism Project – since updated):

“A newly revealed video produced under the auspices of the Iranian regime in early August threatens and visualizes the destruction of Israel at the hands of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Iranian Middle East proxies.”

This is not entirely new. Its purpose echoes the stunt that stunned me 30 years ago as a non-Christian and made me realise the accuracy of Bible prophecy!  Therefore, let me close by summarising personal events indicative of the significance of Iran’s official hostility toward the state of Israel.

Personal Perspective

This blog’s Welcome briefly recounts how I became aware of the huge role played by Iran in ‘The Last Days’. Now and again I refer to Iran in connection with the Ezekiel 38 alliance’, otherwise known as ‘Gog and Magog’ and referred to in Revelation 20.

That role’s warning flags are:

  1. Mid-1980’s joint-rehearsal of the storming of Jerusalem by Iranian-Iraqi elite units, despite fighting on opposite sides during the Iran-Iraq War! (Refer to Review 2 – Iran and Nuclear ‘Fix’).
  2. Very early in his presidency Obama starts secretly appeasing Iran (email 18 May 2009).
  3. July/Aug 2010 – Iran’s nuclear reactor goes live, Supreme Leader reports having been visited by the Hidden Imam about his violent return (email 19 August 2010).
  4. Nov 2011 – referred to event 1 above in ‘Welcome’, introductory post launching this blog.
  5. Nov 2013 – event 1 repeated by Iranian troops in drill ‘Towards Jerusalem’ two years to the date I blogged about the 1980s rehearsal in ‘Welcome’. (Invisible Hand Reappears).
  6. Mar 2015 – The Lord asked, “How many months since that blog you wrote about Iran?”. Upon checking, I’m prompted to expect developments of nuclear deal four months later, ie this July (Review 2 – Iran and Nuclear ‘Fix’). The reference was to when I’d asked if my triple warning about Iran had disrupted my internet’s blogging connection in Nov ’13.
  7. Aug 2015 – new video of IRGC & Iranian proxies ‘imagining’ taking Jerusalem, as related in above section.

Finally, there’s also my statement in March: What’s weird about blogging about Iran 🙂
