Iran boasts that the date for Israel’s destruction has already been set


Jews News: Iranian Army Ground Forces commander Brig.-Gen. Kiumars Heidari has warned that Israel can no longer threaten the Islamic Republic.

As tensions continue to rise along Israel’s northern border, Heidari said Iran’s armed forces “are much more powerful than before” and that “the date has been set” for Israel’s destruction, according to official news agency Mehr. He was speaking in Tehran ahead of Iran’s Army Day. more …

Opinion by Bible Prophecy Tracker: It doesn’t take a prophecy watcher to see that the world is growing increasingly dangerous. Each April I have shared with you the research done by a Christian market trading adviser who studies cycles for clues on how markets will move.

I first found Insiide Track from Bill Koenig’s website http://www.watch.org who posted the events surrounding April 19-20 after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing April 15, 2013.

The following post is from Tuesday:

“Syria Sets Stage: Gold Corroborating…China Conflict Coming?”

“In the late-1990’s INSIIDE Track began a discussion on an uncanny cycle that has impacted America since her founding and has timed momentous, empire-shaping events dating back for millennia.  Among other things, this date has timed:
— First shot of Revolutionary War
— First shot of Civil War
— Start of Spanish/American War
— Failure of Bay of Pigs Invasion
 
That date – April 19 – is what I call the Date of Aggression.  It is the culmination of the Week of Aggression’ (April 12 – 19) & Month of Aggression’ (March 20/21 – April 19/20).   One of the natural reasons for this rise in aggression is the start of the Natural Year in the Northern Hemisphere.  The first month of the Natural Year begins on March 20/21 (vernal equinox/start of Spring) and lasts into April 19/20.
Thousands of years ago, this was the time ‘when kings went off to war’ – as described in the Old Testament of the Bible. 
It is the time when ancient Rome celebrated Tubilustrium – preparing the army for war with four days of aggressive & intentional bloodshed.
And in the millennia since then, this time period has consistently & repeatedly timed escalating acts of aggression as half of the globe comes back to life after the ‘containment’ of Winter.
As explained since the early-2000’s, that period – from March 20 – April 19 – often determines what the rest of the year will look like – in terms of war or peace.

Historically, this date times not only military battles, but financial, natural, & social upheaval as well.  If you expand the parameters a few days on each side of April 19, it also includes:

— Assassination of Abraham Lincoln
— Battle of San Jacinto (the final shot in the war for Texas independence)
— Thornton Affair (first shot in Mexican-American War)
— Doolittle Raid on Japan (America’s first ‘shot’ on the Japanese homeland in WWII)
— League of Nations dissolved
— End of Viet Nam conflict & fall of Saigon
— Operation Praying Mantis (1988; largest battle of surface warships since WWII)
 
And in recent times, a new type of battle has unfolded:
— Waco/Branch Davidian debacle
— Oklahoma City Bombing
— Columbine High School massacre
— Virginia Tech shooting
— Boston Marathon bombing
— Metcalf sniper attack

… and there is much, much more.

Due to over-arching long-term cycles (decades & centuries in duration), this Date of Aggression was/is projected to hold added significance in 2018 – 2021.  And now, as we approach this date, the US is engaged in battles on multiple fronts with Syria now taking center stage and risking all kinds of unintended (or intended) consequences that could spiral out of control in the coming months & years.  These actions have already validated the Month of Aggression and Week of Aggression… as we bear down on the Date of Aggression.  

While attention is focused on the Middle East, China is initiating war games in the Taiwan Strait… beginning on April 18, 2018!”

PRESIDENTS OF IRAN, RUSSIA AND TURKEY PARLEY OVER SYRIA’S FUTURE


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in in Ankara on Wednesday for a three-way summit on the Syrian conflict.

The leaders were determined to speed up efforts to ensure “calm on the ground” in Syria, and to protect civilians in “de-escalation areas,” according to a joint statement posted on Rouhani’s presidential website.
The three countries are working together to try to reduce the violence in Syria despite supporting opposing sides in the war. Russia and Iran are Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s strongest backers, while Turkey supports anti-Assad insurgents.

Despite their differences Iran, Russia and Turkey are three of the major powers involved in a conflict whose course has been largely defined by foreign interventions, and their influence could increase further if the United States pulls out… more

WHAT DOES SCRIPTURE SAY ABOUT GOG & MAGOG WAR
This is a full explanation of the gog and magog war. Ezekiel 38 Amplified Bible (AMP) 38 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, of Meshech, and of Tubal, and prophesy against him, Lord is speaking to Ezekiel… more

Russia to Israel: We will defend you if Iran attacks, but also defend Iran’s presence in Syria


“If Iran attacks Israel, Russia will stand alongside the US to defend Israel,” said Russian ambassador to Israel Alexander Shein at the Munich security conference last week – in a mixed message from Moscow. This assurance is part of the effort Moscow has been making for some time to allay Israel’s concerns and stop the Netanyahu government from agitating against the peril posed by an Iranian military presence in Syria. The Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu carried this message when he paid an unprecedented visit to Jerusalem last October.

DEBKAfile’s sources note, however, that since the Kremlin is broadcasting contradictory messages, Israel’s concerns are far from being allayed. One the one hand, the Russians, knowing they can’t alter Tehran’s implacable aspiration to “wipe Israel off the map,” are promising to defend the Jewish State and even line up with the United States for this purpose. But on the other, Russian policy-makers seem to believe that Israel ought to be satisfied with their guarantee of safety and understand that it has nothing to fear from the Iranian military sitting permanently in its Syrian back yard. That being so, Israel has no reasonable cause to attack Iranian targets in Syria. Therefore, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps may continue to establish bases under their command in Syria.

Moscow’s affirmation of the Iranian presence in Syria as a fact of life is also intended to reach Washington. If Iranian military bases in Syria are no threat to Israel, because of Moscow’s guarantee, neither should it concern the United States… more

Russian official: If Iran attacks Israel, we’ll stand with you


The Times of Israel: Were Iran to attack Israel, Moscow would stand by the Jewish state’s side, a Russian official said this week, days after an Iranian-made drone infiltrated Israel from Syria and was shot down by the IDF.

“In the case of aggression against Israel, not only will the United States stand by Israel’s side — Russia, too, will be on Israel’s side,” Russian Deputy Ambassador to Israel Leonid Frolov said. “Many of our countrymen live here in Israel, and Israel in general is a friendly nation, and therefore we won’t allow any aggression against Israel”. more …

Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY: How ironic that in the future war of Gog and Magog as prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39, Russia will be dragged into attacking Israel with ‘hooks in the jaw’ and the United States is nowhere to be found except for possibly Ezekiel 38:13:

Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?”

Jack Kelley (gracethrufaith.com): “Sheba and Dedan are cities in Saudi Arabia. Some Bible scholars consider Tarshish to be the sea going navies of the Phoenicians, who operated out of nearby Cadiz. The Phoenicians sailed as far north as England for tin, a metal used in the making of bronze and other alloys, which they mined in Cornwall, and which leads some to connect Tarshish with England.”

It may be that the name Britannia is actually derived from a Phoenician word meaning “source of tin.” If so, this reference could be to Great Britain making the “lions” (KJV) or “villages” (NIV) of Tarshish Great Britain’s colonies, of which the US is most prominent today. The fact that the lion is a symbol of the British Empire lends support to this view.”

There will be no need for any nation to come to Israel’s aid since God will have it covered:

I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 38:21-23

Israeli F-16 Shot Down as Iran Heats Up Northern Border


Israel F-16, Courtesy Israel Air ForceJERUSALEM, Israel – Israel shot down an Iranian drone over Israeli territory early Saturday morning, sparking a series of events that many feared could lead to an escalation in hostilities.

In response to the drone penetration, Israel targeted a number of Iranian military sites in Syria, including its “aircraft’s launch components in Syrian territory,” the IDF said.

“The IDF sees the Iranian attack and the Syrian response as a severe and irregular violation of Israeli sovereignty,” the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said in a statement following the initial incident.

During the attack, Syria fired multiple anti-aircraft missiles at IAF aircraft…. more

IRAN SEEKS ‘NEW WORLD ORDER’ ON ‘RUINS’ OF WEST


JihadivideoThe prime objective of Iran’s mullah-led regime is to export its Islamic revolution worldwide to build a new Shiite “world order” on the “ruins” of Western civilization, declared a columnist for a daily paper affiliated with the country’s religious leadership, reports Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin..

“Iran will, in the future, become one of the poles of the world,” wrote Abdollah Motevalian in a recent column in the daily newspaper Javan.

The paper is “affiliated with the country’s ideological camp,” according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and analyzes media in the region.

The writer cited a list of principles that provide the foundation for the Islamic revolution’s objectives.

“Identifying the enemy; believing in the need for fighting the enemy; a revolutionary discourse; a fighting strategy; persistence in fighting, with no hiatus; jihadi spirit; a plan for the fighting; tirelessness; making it a people’s war and leveraging all the human potential in the country.”… more
