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.

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.’

Update on Putin-Trump halt of Iranian activity in Syria

Further to last week’s breaking news, in another exclusive report Russia Freezes Syrian, Iranian Military Movements from Debkafile published yesterday, we gain an insight into the direct connection of the US travel ban on seven Muslim countries and Presidents Trump and Putin’s negotiations. VERY interesting ramifications.:

‘..debkafile’s military and intelligence sources report that the order banned the opening of new battlefronts anywhere in Syria and the movement of Syrian air force units between bases. This order has been obeyed to date.

‘The ban came from Moscow to prevent military reprisals against the Putin-Trump deal for Syria…

‘Moscow has never resorted to extreme action of this kind in previous Russian military interventions in Middle East lands.

‘The decision was taken shortly after the Kremlin was notified that US President Donald Trump had agreed to join forces with President Vladimir Putin in Syria.

‘Since then, the Trump administration has kept all dealings with Moscow over Syria under a cloak of secrecy, including the outcome of President Trump’s first phone conversation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. All other concerned parties, such as Israel, have been left groping in the dark about what happens next.

‘The Russian standstill order in Syria came shortly before the US presidential decree that barred Iranians from entering the United States (along with the nationals of six other terror-prone Muslim countries)

‘Iran can no longer doubt that the two powers, America and Russia, have ganged up to push the Islamic Republic out of their way. Trepidation in Tehran was articulated on Monday, Jan. 30, at a convention staged in the Iranian capital to celebrate 515 years of Iranian-Russian relations, an anniversary that would not normally be marked by a special event….’

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.

PRAYER ALERT: for Russia and against co-ordinated attacks

Cover design - The Invisible Hand, Victor DunstanThis repeated call to pray against attacks and for Russia were posted by Veronika West on Tuesday – note her clarification.: 

1st:

WATCH AND PRAY; CO-ORDINATED ATTACK

‘This afternoon as I was driving down the motorway suddenly I saw a plane crashing into the sea, and I heard the Father say,

“Daughter PRAY, For Satan has unleashed a Spirit of death and destruction in this hour, PRAY AND PLEAD THE BLOOD against a coordinated attack by the HAND of the enemy”!

‘Immediately as I began to pray, I saw in the spirit a highly sophisticated, organised and coordinated attack by the enemy that would take place both on land and in the air, I saw that many lives could be lost. I believe this attack can be exposed and thwarted by the power of Prayer and pleading the blood of Jesus.

I DO NOT POST THESE THINGS TO BRING FEAR BUT TO BRING FORTH VICTORY OVER EVERY WEAPON OF THE ENEMY.

‘WE CRY “MERCY IN JESUS”.’

See Veronika’s earlier call – Pray: The Submarines Are Coming!

2nd:

PRAYER ALERT; WATCH! PAY ATTENTION TO RUSSIA; THE BEAR HAS BEEN BACKED INTO A CORNER AND WILL NOW STRIKE BACK WITH GREATER FORCE AND UNRELENTING POWER”!

‘Yesterday the Holy Spirit stopped me in my tracks and instructed me to PRAY FERVENTLY AND URGENTLY FOR THE NATION OF RUSSIA.

‘Now as I listened to the Holy Spirit I heard these words,

“DAUGHTER A DIVINE SHAKING, SUDDEN SHIFTING AND STRATEGIC RE-POSITIONING IS NOW TAKING PLACE IN THE NATION OF RUSSIA, FOR THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH ARE BEING ALIGNED WITH HEAVEN’S TIME, WATCH! FOR THE BEAR HAS BEEN BACKED INTO A CORNER AND WILL NOW STRIKE BACK WITH EVEN GREATER FORCE AND UNRELENTING POWER. SEE! A SPIRIT OF HATRED AND VENGEANCE HAS BEEN UNLEASHED UPON THE EARTH AND SEEKS TO OCCUPY AND RULE WITH AN IRON FIST, BUT I TELL YOU WATCH! FOR THE BEAR WILL NOW RISE UP ON ITS HIND LEGS AND IT WILL COME DOWN QUICKLY, SUDDENLY AND POWERFULLY AGAINST THE ONE THE WORLD CALLS ISIS”, says God.

“LOOK! FOR THE RISE OF THE EAGLE AND THE BEAR WILL BE SEEN ACROSS THE NATIONS AS THE TWO COME TOGETHER IN STRENGTH AND IN VISION TO BRING THE BEAST OF THE EAST TO ITS KNEES. NOW DO NOT LEAN ON YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND DO NOT QUESTION MY WAYS NOR MY WILL, FOR MY WAYS ARE NOT YOUR WAYS NOR MY WILL YOUR WILL, FOR I WILL HAVE MY WAY, AND MY WILL SHALL BE ESTABLISHED UPON THE EARTH, WATCH! PAY ATTENTION! MY GOVERNING HAND IS NOW MOVING SUDDENLY, QUICKLY AND WITHOUT WARNING IN THE EARTH!”

“MY TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, UNITY, MERCY AND PEACE WILL NOW GO FORTH TO REBUILD THE BROKEN BRIDGES BETWEEN THE NATION OF RUSSIA AND THE NATION OF AMERICA, FOR SURELY I TELL YOU THE ARM OF THE BEAR AND THE EYE OF THE EAGLE WILL COME TOGETHER AS ONE AND THE HEAD OF THE UNCIRCUMCISED GIANT SHALL BE DECAPITATED, YES, THE HEAD OF THIS SNAKE SHALL BE CUT OFF AND CAST INTO THE FIRE”.

“WATCH! FOR THIS SHALL TAKE PLACE QUICKLY, SUDDENLY AND WITHOUT WARNING. NO LONGER WILL MY JUSTICE AND MERCY TARRY, EVEN NOW MY SPIRIT OF VINDICATION IS MOVING, SHAKING AND SHIFTING THE NATIONS, LISTEN! FOR A BATTLE CRY OF VICTORY AND FREEDOM WILL SOON BE HEARD ACROSS THE EARTH”, says God.’

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.

Putin crosses a line – bans Russians from preaching the Gospel outside churches. Here’s the latest.

This comes with today’s news of Russia becoming the first world power outside the Middle-East to recognise and take military action against the trans-national Islamist peril (Debkafile Russian anti-Isis war from Syria to Caucasus).

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

Putin-doorway-Reuters

Russian President Vladimir Putin has just crossed a very dangerous line. He has just signed a law making it illegal for Russian followers of Jesus Christ to share or preach the Gospel anywhere outside the walls of their church, or even email their family and friends to invite them to church. What’s more, he has done so under the guise of preventing “terrorism.”

As I have been warning for a decade (see here, here, hereand in my 2006 book, Epicenter), Putin — who is fashioning himself as a rising Czar — is an increasingly dangerous despot. He continues to centralize government power and control to himself. He is trampling over human rights, the media, and NGOs. He is rebuilding the Russian military. He has invaded neighboring Georgia and Ukraine. He is arming and building alliances with Radical Islamic countries, particularly Iran.

Now, Putin is positioning himself as an enemy of Christ and His Church. If he doesn’t not…

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…

World-changing socio-economic and spiritual trends in 2016

A fortnight ago today (21 January) Rick Joyner, founder of Morning Star Ministries, wrote,

“The premise of my last Prophetic Bulletin on the five trends that would change the natural world in 2016 began unfolding faster and with more impact than I expected. I wrote that it would happen in the first quarter of this year, but I honestly did not expect it to begin on the first day as it did. My prayer now is that what I’ve been shown that will unfold in the Spirit will likewise come faster and with greater impact. What is coming in the Spirit is the antidote to the troubles of the world. It is far more exciting than anything the world has seen…” (emphasis added)

In referring to ‘natural world’ Rick means geopolitical and socio-economic realms. I’ll briefly outline that Bulletin’s content before considering its follow-up, which leads into something of fundamental historical importance that’s been brewing. Rick doesn’t refer to this special seismic shift. Nevertheless, it’s implicit in the conclusion of his subsequent Bulletin.

Published on 14 December his Prophetic Bulletin #96, Five Trends that Will Change the World in 2016, opens as follows:

“A geopolitical shift has taken place at the end of 2015 that could change the world more than we have seen since the collapse of the Iron Curtain. Core beliefs and values are being challenged across the globe. With such a major change of direction happening, where are we headed? The following are the five major events that will likely define our immediate future and impact world affairs for the foreseeable future….”

Rick presents these five in chronological order of occurrence, which isn’t necessarily the sequence of importance or impact, namely: China’s stock market crashes – falling energy prices – Russian military intervention in Middle-East – terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino – the candidacy of Donald Trump.

Having closely watched political events in the States with increasing concern throughout Obama’s terms, and thus being one of 300 founding leaders of The Oak Initiative, Rick’s brief analysis is well-worth noting.

Therefore, in looking at each of those five events of major impact upon the world and their potential consequences Rick starts, “First we will briefly discuss the most basic change factor in world affairs—initiative. In military operations and world affairs, having the initiative is necessary for success…”.  He goes on to examine factors in each case and draw ‘the bottom line’. I note his gentle indictment of Obama regarding terrorism:

“…most people are smart enough to understand the politicians try to come up with politically correct and expedient solutions instead of a real strategy. Even so, the Paris and San Bernardino attacks did a lot to wake up the people. This awakening is helping to throw off the delusions of unrealistic idealism and political correctness. This is crucial for sustainable war that will defeat ISIS and other groups whose primary strategy is terrorism. Although French and British leadership are waking up some, it is an awakening among the people that is creating a sharp turn to the right in Europe. Putin has chastised Europe for its attempt at multiculturalism…”

Read Rick’s brief evaluation in full here and note, as does he, that other factors are also affecting current events and trends; but the far more positive ones are spiritual trends. To continue from my above opening quotation.:

“We all “see in part,” but these are the five most important trends I saw unfolding that we will begin to see emerging this year:

  • A new reformation of the church will begin to take definition.
  • Councils of leaders will begin to form with true apostolic authority. 
  • A kingdom economy will begin to form.
  • A new generation of prophets and teachers will begin to emerge with unprecedented authority and influence 
  • So many Christians will rise up in Europe and North America with zeal and focus that it will be recognized as another Great Awakening, while the moves of God in the rest of the world will gain new traction.”

Continue reading Bulletin #97 here > Five Spiritual Trends That Will Change the World in 2016.

In particular I like this promise:

“…The Lord really has saved His best wine for last. The quality of what He will serve His people will eclipse anything ever experienced before.

“Knowledge has greatly increased in the natural. What is about to be released in the Spirit will mirror this. For those who love knowledge, truth, wisdom, and understanding, there has never been a better time to be alive. This increasing love for the Scriptures will be contagious, helping to feed and strengthen every move of God now unfolding.”

…as well as Rick’s closing remark:

“We are entering the first stages of the great harvest that is the end of this age. This will be the greatest in-gathering there has ever been. It will change the spiritual and moral fabric of nations, profoundly changing the church throughout the earth. The church is then going to help change the earth and prepare the way for the coming King.”  

His reference to spiritual and moral fabric reminds me of the open vision that appeared in front of me of Britain and hearing/seeing the Lord’s plan, “The fabric of society is so rotten – (like old, wet sacking) – it will tear apart”.

I then watched as the centre of England was ripped apart and forced open by a huge rock. That is, the rock that is Christ Jesus will arise throughout the land, becoming the bedrock of our nation once again – Praise the Lord. (See Comments Upon the Collapse of Society)

AND, in connection with Rick’s remark another truly historic and exceptional trend has started, which I reported upon last year. The next post will update you…

If you have time and inclination you may like some ‘prep’, especially the last item:

Update of Library of Prophecies: 2007 vision of war in Middle-East

Courtesy of James Mark Long, www.propheticartists.comLast month’s many prophetical words published on this blog are now logged into the Library of Prophecies together with a couple from a contributor to the Comments thread

I’d especially draw your attention to his word on Jerusalem  and, in view of recent events, to a series of short pictures received around 2007 entitled Where East Meets West.

In the latter, it’s interesting to note a contrast between ground troops and air-borne strikes. Also, in October there were concerns over the  Russian presence near vital underwater internet cables, as reported here. Then on Tuesday a Russian submarine fired missiles from the Mediterranean into Syria (report here). Today, Putin expresses hope of not needing to use nuclear tactical weaponry against ISIS.

News alert: Israel extremely nervous over Russian ops in Golan area

Eschatological events continue to accelerate with this news just out from Debkafile.

Monday’s conspicuous goodwill between PM Netanyahu and President Putin at the Paris climate summit may possibly have soured by Tuesday because a meeting of senior military officers convened to discuss the two army commands’ cooperation wasn’t held. So far, this cooperation has averted clashes between Israeli air force and Russian warplanes over Syria.

The Special Report states,

‘Debkafile’s military sources report that this week, the show of optimism is giving way to an uneasy sensation in the offices of the prime minister, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and the IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gady. They suspect an ulterior motive behind Russia’s military movements in southern Syria, especially its air strikes against Syrian rebels, just across from Israel’s Golan border….’ (continue reading here).

Intercessors may wish to note the finer details of this informative Report. It concludes by noting,

‘Officials in Jerusalem point out that the threat to Golan peaked just hours after the Russian leader met the prime minister in Paris. Putin is conducting a hands-on policy on Syria and keeps close track of the slightest occurrence on the battlefield. He must have been perfectly aware of the state of play on the Golan when he met Netanyahu, but nonetheless kept it out of their conversation.’

The earlier reference to a possible ulterior motive made me recall Tony Puccio’s recent comment on my 2-part post on Paris regarding his dream of October 2014 about Betrayal, viz:

“I had a dream 10/21/2014 where I saw what I believe to be   leaders of nations gathered around a table. Putin stood out as a prominent figure in the dream and it seemed that a peace treaty was being signed by the various nations with Russia. I saw Putin sign with his right hand and then I saw that in his left hand, which was behind his back, he was holding a large dagger. A dagger from what I have come to know almost always indicates a betrayal, or, as the saying goes, a knife in the back. I did not get a sense of the nations that were involved, only Russia stood out.”

The ‘Invisible Hand’ reappears at another anniversary: spooky!

A footnote to the recent post on accelerating eschatology implied something weird about this blog’s 2nd anniversary. And an identical event happened for the 4th anniversary on Saturday 21st November last – news of Iran rehearsing a military attack upon Jerusalem!

But hasn’t an international agreement been agreed with the Iranian regime, you may ask? As many well-informed have repeatedly warned: that doesn’t change their radical ambition to eliminate Israel. Although of late the focus has been elsewhere in the Middle-East, the Iranian leadership adheres to and works toward the manifestation of an extremely radical Shiite eschatology (see Further Reading below).

The Invisible Hand

Invisible Hand

And that’s exactly what got me intrigued about End-times as a non-Christian thirty years ago. If you’re unfamiliar with my story let me recount from Welcome what and why it caught my attention.:

As a part-time editor/publisher I was well placed in the mid-1980s for a friend who ran a mail-order book business to give me an unusual new book on geopolitics, The Invisible Hand by Victor Dunstan published by his Megiddo Press (1984).

This gift claimed the Bible held coded and plain-text details of prophecies relating to the British Mandate in Palestine, as well as giving historical details of the Mandate.

I flicked through the book whilst watching a TV documentary about the then current Iraq-Iran war and noticed its many references to the significance of Jerusalem.  Then I heard the narrator refer to elite units from opposing forces rehearsing together an attack upon Jerusalem – despite being at war with one another!  What a staggering coincidence!!

So I looked and saw what purported to be a video of such an attack – my jaw dropped!  Wouldn’t yours?  This was a book to take seriously. It grabbed and got my full attention!

Consequently, I became more alert to Middle-Eastern and globally related events, which all suggest things may not be as they seem at first glance – or as reported in the media (certainly not the BBC).  I was amazed to learn many events are of Biblical significance.  Bemused, therefore, I began to watch as events unfolded…[NB: on Monday I blogged on this acceleration and dozens of recent news headlines in USA relating to holy writ!]

Back to the book: Victor Dunstan estimated all the prophecies would come to a climax in 1992 with Russia being the lead villain against Israel. However, he didn’t foresee the collapse of communism in 1989!

Yet 1992 proved to be pertinent because the ‘Middle East Peace Process’ had just got under way in October 1991 and led to the Oslo Accords of 1993. After the millennium I found that John McTernan and William Koenig had followed prophetical developments since 1986 and the mid-1990’s respectively. In 1996 William published his work as Koenigs’ International News (now Watch.org) and became an accredited White House correspondent in 2001, the year they co-authored Israel: The Blessing or the Curse. They’ve written other works and independently continue monitoring daily events, as occasionally covered in this blog – see tags Koenig, McTernan.

Also, although the Soviet Union had dissolved into separate republics, the world soon found motherland Russia regaining its prominence under Vladimir Putin. The re-birth is so strategically significant that Putin ousted Obama last year as the world’s most powerful person (Forbes Magazine).

Therefore, Victor’s prognostication about the Soviet Union seemed to be mistaken BUT, in fact, Russia itself has increasingly come into the picture and is now the dominant power in the Middle-East.

We should also note what Victor foretold over 30 years ago about Islam. He writes in chapter 12 of The Invisible Hand,

“Let us make no mistake; Islam is about to become the most powerful empire the world has EVER SEEN.”

His chapter summary includes this foresight:

“We are about to witness a mighty and almost unbelievable upsurge in Islam. Though we see the first signs of an Islamic revival, that revival has a long way to go but it’s going that ‘long way’ very quickly.”

How uncannily true!

So upon launching Richard’s Watch on 21st November 2011, I introduced myself and told about that book. Little did I suspect that what happened decades ago would keep popping up on every alternate anniversary of that date!

21 November 2013

The intriguing events around the 2nd anniversary are recounted in The Invisible Hand Re-appears! Preceding that I reported a Weird mix-up resurrected the blog’s Welcome.

Next, on the actual anniversary of 21st November 2013, the Washington Beacon reported Iran Launches ‘Massive’ War Drills – Codename: ‘Towards Jerusalem’!  (Within that week I read president Obama secretly agreed to elevate Iran to seventh world power.)

Moreover, my trying to write and publish anything about Iran was severely frustrated by internet connection problems with my blogging platform WordPress, as told the next day.

21 November 2015

Now on the blog’s 4th anniversary I found upon reading John McTernan’s Insights that he reported upon ‘Iran Guards Simulates Capture of Al-Aqsa Mosque’. (Link not available but The Times of Israel has Iran trains for capture of Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa but uses Dome of the Rock model.)

John McTernanJohn comments, “Iran, like so many other nations, has gone “mad” over Jerusalem. Just before the first Gulf War, Sadam Hussein went “mad” over Jerusalem. He fantasized that he was like the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar and was going to destroy Israel, capture Jerusalem and take the Jews captive to Iraq. Now it is Iran’s turn for destruction. Iran is now “mad” over Jerusalem and will suffer the same fate as Sadam.”

AND there are ongoing issues with WordPress functionality once again!!! (Not connection but much bigger issues over using a new editing facility.)

Spooky?

Not at all. Such repetitive, ‘mirror-image’ coincidences must be more than that – I call them ‘God-incidences’. The Living Lord must surely be pointing out the huge biblical significance to these military events and the Iranian leadership’s true, apocalyptic mission.

WE ARE BEING WARNED WITH PRECISE REGULARITY!

AND there’s a quickening pace in other eschatological events as noted a few days ago!
