The announcement came at the end of the first cabinet meeting to be held since Lebanon was thrown into a political crisis following Hariri’s stunning November 4 move.

EIRUT – The Lebanese president appeared to defend Hezbollah as necessary to resist Israel on Monday, after an Arab League statement accused the group of terrorism and noted it is part of Lebanon’s coalition government.
“Israeli targeting still continues and it is the right of the Lebanese to resist it and foil its plans by all available means,” President Michel Aoun’s office quoted him as saying in a Tweet.
The heavily armed Shi’ite Muslim Hezbollah, formed by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, fought Israel’s occupation of Lebanon in the early 1980s and says its weapons are still needed against Israel.
Saudi Arabia, a regional rival of Iran, opposes Hezbollah’s role as a military force in Syria and has accused it of helping the Houthi group in Yemen and militants in Bahrain…. read more
Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
I am watching the Middle East very closely. It appears that Saudi Arabia has no choice but war with Iran. With the fall of ISIS, the way is now clear for Iran to move its army into Syria which will threaten Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Iran is very aggressive throughout the region and the Saudis are backed into a corner.
If Iran moves it army into Syria or attacks Saudi Arabia, Israel will be forced to attack Iran which also means Hezbollah and Hamas. Israel can’t let Iran defeat Saudi Arabia. This war will drag Egypt into it.
No matter what keep you eyes fixed on the Lord Jesus coming for his bride!… read more
Zechariah 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
This is an update about what is happening in the Middle East with Saudi Arabia and war with Iran. This is real serious because the Saudis eyes were opened to what Iran is going and it is encircling the Saudis to takeover. This is heading towards the all-out war between the Sunni Muslims and the Shiites. This is the first phase in God destroying Islam. The second stage is the winner of the this war will then unite the Muslims to move against Israel to kill all the Jews, destroy the nation, and take Jerusalem for its world caliphate. This will the utter destruction of Islam and many Islamic nations! It appears to be coming fast.
UPDATE: MIDDLE EAST WAR FROM ISRAEL

MIDDLE EAST WAR: IRAN VS ISRAEL
“The Iran-Hamas-Hezbollah Connection” This is a very good article about what is happening the Middle East. Really good information is coming out about what is happening between Saudi Arabia and Iran. It really does look like war.
This will be an all-out war for the control of Islam. It will be between Shiite/Iran vs Sunni/Saudi Arabia. Previous wars between the Sunnis and Shiites were vicious and resulted in the slaughter of multitudes. I suspect this war will be same. I write about this war in my book, “As America Has Done to Israel”
The war appears to be right on top of us as Saudi Arabia is ready. In the end, the Muslims are coming against Israel to destroy the nation and take Jerusalem. This war is a step on the way to Jerusalem. At this point, the Holy God of Israel will break the back of Islam and put an end to this bloodthirsty, God hating religion…. read more

The nations are in upheaval. As bad as the Middle East was ten years ago, it’s far worse today. Saudi Arabia recently shot down a missile headed for Riyadh. The missile was launched from Yemen, but the Saudis claim that the launch was an act of war committed by Lebanon. Sound confusing? It gets worse. The missile itself was Iranian. This is just one of many events that has placed that region on a short fuse. I can cite similar situations the world over.
Upheaval of nations is not new, but this time there are important distinctions. From a biblical perspective, the presence of the modern state of Israel changes the context in which we see all otherworld events. It is the mega-sign of the end times.
Today’s upheaval is also accompanied by a technological revolution of staggering proportions. Technological advances are having the effect of throwing gasoline on history’s already smoldering embers. Non-nation groups like the Houthis in Yemen and Hezbollah in Lebanon have sophisticated missile technology. And then there’s North Korea. Even though it’s one of the world’s poorest nations, it has a large nuclear weapons arsenal, as well as newly developed ICBMs…. read more
