Re. ‘3rd Woe’ – 1st thoughts on the US’ game-changer strike (Fulfilled Prophecy #51)

Hearing news last Friday of Donald Trump’s decision to decapitate Iran’s evil military head and thereby remove him from the ‘equation’, I immediately thought of two events in the 30-odd years I’ve been watching satan’s strategy in the Middle-East.

First, in view of its leaders’ theological hatred of the state of Israel, the land of Iran ‘coincidentally’ got a ‘supernatural’ warning on modern Israel’s 70th Anniversary through an earthquake near the Bushehr nuclear plant, as told in Thursday 19th’s Prophetical Musing Fulfilled Friday 20th… (2019!!).

A subsequent post considered it a sign from God.  Now, I mused it would be well for the ground to open up and swallow all that nation’s nuclear facilities.

A nation-wide geological swarm of earthquakes would make the regime take notice, rather like after Mecca’s Grand Mosque got struck by lightning on 11th Sept 2015 – the 14th anniversary of 9/11 Twin Towers attack!

Yesterday, 7th January just before 3pm, Veronika West posts this notice:

NEXT, this morning – note date-stamp’s numbers! – on 08 Jan 2020 02:20 a quake struck! (8 signifies new cycle, fresh start, resurrection) >>>

A prophecy fulfilled the very next day indubitably hints the Hand of God is active!

AND it’s the second truly ‘NOW’ word regarding a ‘sign’ificant earthquake!!

2019-2020 Fulfilled Prophecies, 2 of 3: Three blessings after three woes, including war with Iran! (#50)

Christopher Wickland released this prophecy four months ago but has re-released it in response to recent events. If new to you, I recommend its careful study and weighing.

I’m tempted to emphasise parts in addition to that of America’s response to Iran’s killing US citizens and attacking its sovereign territory (ie. US embassy in Baghdad; which is tantamount to a declaration of war!) – but I leave my readers to note aspects that have been, or are becoming, fulfilled. 

In my opinion, ‘government’ in the 1st woe covers the three arms of Executive, Parliamentary and Judicial authority within Britain. 

THE THREE WOES AND THE THREE BLESSINGS

Introduction

My name is Christopher Wickland, I’ve been a Christian going on for nearly 30 years. Over that time I have received many visions and dreams I believe to be from the Lord. Some of those visions and dreams have impacted and literally saved peoples lives.

There has been many words and dreams I have held onto for a long time, over 20 years regarding the war with Iran, the great economic collapse and the Great Revival. All of these words in the time I received them were very much out of time in respect to the world’s then geopolitical climate.

I feel now is the time to start opening up these words and revealing them to the general public for those who wish to hear such things. This word I am about to give will contain elements of those words including new prophetic insights I believe the Lord has given to me.

This prophetic word will be broken into two sections. A message of woe and a message of hope.

I need to make it clear, that I do not live to be a sensationalist, to grab attention or to be one who seeks stardom in the small world of the prophetic. On the contrary, I wish to be one who would rather hide in the shadows and remain hidden. I would rather live out my life in peace with God and man. It brings me no joy whatsoever to bring prophetic words, especially weighty ones.

Bible Update: Red flag flies over Mahdi’s mosque: Apocalypse’s 2nd horseman may now have its sword!

ESSENTIAL READING: Mark Davidson brings what may be the most important insight you may read on the immediate aftermath of America taking decisive, defensive action against a regime that is actually hell-bent on bringing about the End of the World, as covered here on Richard’s Watch in many postings under the Mahdi tag.

It’s absolutely imperative ALL Christians – especially those in leadership – know about the eschatalogical impulse behind the Iranians engineering such a conflict in order to bring about the return of Shi’ite Islam’s 12th ‘hidden imam’, followed en-train by Jesus!!

For a fuller grasp of this dangerous doctrine browse through the above tag, starting with my blog of nearly 7 years ago Iranian Leader’s End-Times Declaration.

I never thought I would be writing an article like this, for I had never thought one single event could equate to the second horseman being made ready to make men slay one another. There are reports from Twitter and, at this point, only British tabloids such as the Express, Metro, and Sun, that something […]

Apocalypse Row: must Shi`is fight like it’s ‘The End Of The World’?

ACE timing! Thank you for this post which helps to answer one of my reader’s objections to claims about Iran in my previous post reblogging Joel Rosenberg on Saudi Arabia!

The Occidental Jihadist

For most of this millennium–going back to writing my doctoral dissertation on Mahdism and Islamic eschatology at Ohio State in 2000-01–I’ve argued against the conventional (conservative and Evangelical Christian) “wisdom” that the leadership of Iran wants to start a regional, or global, war in order to usher in the appearance of the Twelfth Imam al-Mahdi. This claim that the ayatollahs want to “hotwire the apocalypse”–probably with nuclear weapons–comes from either a vast ignorance, or a profound (and probably intentional) misrepresentation, of Twelver Shi`i theology.  Maybe both.

I won’t reiterate the entire argument here. See my 2011 paper for the Institute for Near East & Gulf Military Analysis; my book Ten Years Captivation with the Mahdi’s Camps (particularly pages 103ff.); and my recent article “Do Iran’s Leaders Want to Hotwire the Apocalypse?

But am I wrong? Two months ago a member of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Assembly…

Iran: the global slumber continues — Mark Davidson

The silence is deafening. The world continues on the way it wants to go.

ALSO, note Gog-Magog alliance is now getting formal, as flagged by World Watch Daily from Jerusalem Post’s State Media in Iran, Russia Indicate Growing Russia-Iran-Turkey Alliance:

‘Iran’s Press TV tweeted in English on Wednesday with a quote from Turkey’s leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan: “Nuclear power should be forbidden for all or permissible for all.” Press TV included an image of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appearing to be sweating.

‘Iran’s message wasn’t a secret: the account tagged Erdogan and included the hashtag “#IsraelisExempt”. What is more secretive is the Iran-Turkey-Russia alliance that is emerging and illustrated via state-controlled media.

‘RT, a Russian television network, similarly highlights the greatness of Turkey and Iran as part of a campaign that clearly indicates Moscow’s support for the two. On Wednesday, it tweeted about Iran showcasing its drone expertise amid tensions in the Gulf. It also shared images from Erdogan’s speech in which he slammed Israel. Russian news agency Sputnik similarly highlighted comments by Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday morning. “Turkey will probably never buy American aircraft again,” Sputnik noted as well.’

At first I couldn’t believe it. Wow, what a news event! But I only saw the story on Zero Hedge. That site is fairly reliable but one never knows if it might be fake news. But having seen the story later on Fox and CNN it was real.

There was a coordinated drone attack on Saudi oil facilities knocking out over half of Saudi Arabia’s daily oil output!! The largest single oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia, and in the world for that matter, was taken out.

The Saudis lost production of 5.7 million barrels per day (bpd). That’s just over half of Saudi Arabia’s total production (of 9.8 m bpd), and a (5.7 m loss / 90 m world total) 6.3% total of world production. The…

As was written in this post, our world entered a new zone of awaiting the Second Signpost, the Invasion by Iran of the Middle East.

Bible Update: ‘Gog-Magog’ game-changing event on Israel’s border

This morning’s news brings a reminder, in the midst of the current political upheavals, of what Bible prophecy points to: an almighty battle near the Mount of Megiddo, otherwise known in Greek as ‘Armageddon’!

In the previous update we heard about Russia and China’s increasing influence in Africa and noted publication of a most comprehensive US Congressional testimony entitled “Moscow in the Middle East and North Africa” documenting Russia’s active, aggressive and shrewd alignment with the nations of Ezekiel, chapters 38-39. Now comes this development:

DebkaFile reports Russia lets Hezbollah-Iranian forces redeploy opposite Syrian-Israel border; in other words, it looks like Putin has reneged upon his agreement with Israel and USA (emphasis mine). This exclusive reads:

‘Deep apprehension in Israel over a Russian U-turn, which is letting small Iranian Al Qods and Hizballah units regain former positions 10-15km from the Israeli and Jordanian borders. They are coming back after Russian forces drove them out last year and established a safe zone at those border districts in their stead.

‘Reporting this turn of events, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources add that the Russian forces, not content with allowing this Iranian-Hizballah comeback, have also evacuated their own positions, leaving the local population under the control of the Al Qods and Hizballah invaders. These actions violate Russian President Vladimir Putin’s commitment last year to US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to purge S. Syrian borders of the hostile elements ruled from Tehran and provide monitors for a safe zone.

‘Washington and Jerusalem have interceded strongly with Moscow against this breach while trying to establish whether they were ordered from Putin’s office in the Kremlin or the local command on a directive from the Russian defense ministry. For now, neither the US nor Israel has decided how to respond to the new pro-Iranian buildup at Israel’s back door. They are also trying to find out if the Russian step is Moscow’s response to the US-Turkish safe zone initiative for northeastern Syria. This week, a large American unit landed in southern Turkey to start activating the joint US-Turkish safe zone, which aims to separate the Turkish army from the pro-US SDF militia which is dominated by Syrian Kurds. Moscow may have opened the door to Iran in southern Syria to counter expanding US involvement in the north.

‘Israel showed first resistance to the new hostile presence at its border on July 24 by firing surface missiles at the intelligence stations Iran was setting up on the Tal Al-Harara hilltop opposite the Golan border. But the Russian move continued notwithstanding.’

Iran “Nothing but trouble” – Mark Davidson

Mark Davidson brings a brief update to his Four Signposts perspective of our approach to the End-times.  There’s another perspective too – is the Lord’s hand in this situation’s timing in very last days of Theresa May’s term as Prime Minister, and which could make the signature mark of her legacy?  In my opinion, all her actions prevented her receiving the blessings prophesied at the start of her premiership, and disregard of Donald Trump probably led to her Government’s refusal of American naval protection measures in the Gulf, as reported by previous leader of Conservative Party Iain Duncan Smith here.

This news report tells us Iran has just seized two British oil tankers. With that, it is looking more and more like the trigger for the Second Signpost will come from Iran. It is looking like they are goading the United States into a fight, hoping to get one by escalating its attacks and thefts, […]

Bible Update: ‘Gog-Magog’ moves into Africa and meets ‘Kings of the East’

Ezekiel 38
Gog and Allies Attack Israel

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, [a]the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, [b]Ethiopia, and [c]Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you…”

Ezekiel 39
Gog’s Armies Destroyed

“And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, [a]the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal; and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel…”  (NKJV – BibleGateway)

In last Friday’s in-depth news-roundup Koenig’s Eye-View From The White House, the presidential seat’s ‘resident’ Christian journalist William Koenig reports:

‘The Congressional testimony entitled “Moscow in the Middle East and North Africa” presented by Anna Borshchevskaya is extremely comprehensive. It documents Russia’s active, aggressive and shrewd alignment with the nations of Ezekiel, chapters 38-39. It also shows how Russia is out-positioning the United States in many countries. The testimony even mentioned that Benjamin Netanyahu has met with Russian President Vladimir Putin more often than he did with the Obama administration or has with the Trump White House. I highly recommend you take the time to read the entire testimony.‘ (emphasis mine)

Here’s some of its pertinent parts that Bill quotes:

  • With a combination of aggression and diplomacy, Russian president Vladimir Putin has ensured Russia’s long-term prominence in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Washington must now take Moscow into account in the region to a degree it hasn’t had to for years.
  • Moscow’s September 2015 military intervention in Syria was a game changer, but it’s important to remember that, prior to the intervention, Putin had worked methodically and consistently for at least fifteen years to return Russia to the Middle East—a region that has historically mattered to Russian rulers. While he had achieved considerable influence by as early as 2010, the Syria intervention officially restored Russia’s place as a critical regional player and helped position Putin as a regional power-broker.
  • Putin has developed pragmatic ties with every government and major opposition movement in the region—an approach that has proven more successful than the Soviet Union’s ideological blinkering.
  • The region’s leaders feel comfortable dealing with Putin, who appeals to their self-interest. They covet Russian weaponry and hedge their bets in the uncertainty of U.S. policy. Moscow doesn’t ask Middle East leaders to improve the human rights situation in their countries.
  • American allies in the region, from Egypt, Turkey, Israel, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), and Morocco, to one degree or another, have come to see Putin as a necessary reality and a more reliable partner than the United States—a mediator who can talk to all sides. Not only has the Kremlin courted every major government and opposition movement in the region, but increasingly, they conversely court the Kremlin.
  • The Kremlin has been careful and holds its cards close when it comes to its ultimate intentions in Libya, but Russia’s presence in the country is real:
  • Saudi Arabian King Salman made a historic visit to Moscow in October 2017, which demonstrates Moscow’s accepted prominence in the region.
  • Arms and nuclear deals play an important role in Egypt’s increasingly closer ties to Russia.
  • Moscow is also building Turkey’s nuclear power plant. Erdogan’s ongoing discussion about the purchase of S- 400’s from Moscow would have been unthinkable even a decade ago but increasingly appears to reflect reality rather than mere posturing.
  • Morocco has grown closer to Russia in terms of Moscow’s support for Morocco’s nuclear energy.

CHINA

The Testimony also covers China’s involvement in the Middle East, which so far is mainly economic with a military and political component.

Also, here’s ‘Rosh’, the leader of the Gog-Magog alliance at a summit with that ‘king’ of the East, who stated that,

Beijing will continue to promote steady development of ties with Tehran no matter how the situation changes.” Xi condemned Washington’s unilateral pullout from the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran as the main reason behind rising tensions in the region, calling for the promotion of multilateralism. He stressed that Beijing will continue its strategic relations with Tehran in various fields, including fighting terrorism and systematic crimes.’

Let’s see what scripture says about them in Revelation 16:

Sixth Bowl: Euphrates Dried Up

12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings [g]of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
