Drums of Big War Heard in Middle East


Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Commentary

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

Islam Civil War: Iran vs Saudi Arabia


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.

Commentary

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

Saudi-led warplanes strike defense ministry in Yemeni capital

“There were two to three strikes on the Ministry of Defense,” local journalist Hassain Abukhaiti told RT, confirming that Saudi-led planes are targeting the Yemeni capital. He said there are reports that “one of the missiles hit a house” near the military building. “A family was living there,” the journalist said. “The house has been destroyed. It is very likely that the entire family was killed.”

HALEY.jpgUS calls on international community to hold Iran responsible for its violations; Haley: Iran providing weapons to Houthi rebels violates two UN resolutions simultaneously; S. Arabia accuses Iran, Houthi of violating UNSC resolution, Nov. 8, 2017.

The United States called on the United Nations to take action on Iran following a missile attack on Riyadh Saturday night.

United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, accused Iran of arming Houthi rebels in Yemen, relaying the United States’ stance on Iran’s violations of two UN Security Council Resolutions. She stated on Tuesday, “By [Iran] providing these types of weapons to the Houthi militias in Yemen, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is violating two UN resolutions simultaneously,” calling on the “United Nations and international partners to take necessary action to hold the Iranian regime accountable for these violations.”

Saudi Arabia continues to hold Iran, Lebanon and Hezbollah accountable, Saudi Arabia’s Minister for Gulf Affairs, Thamer al-Sabhan, announcing that the government of Lebanon would be “dealt with as a government declaring war on Saudi Arabia” on Monday…. read more

EXCLUSIVE: US Preparing to Put Nuclear Bombers Back on 24-Hour Alert


A 2014 photo of a B-52H Stratofortress based at Barksdale Air Force Base, La.If the order comes, the B-52s will return to a ready-to-fly posture not seen since the Cold War.

BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. — The U.S. Air Force is preparing to put nuclear-armed bombers back on 24-hour ready alert, a status not seen since the Cold War ended in 1991.

That means the long-dormant concrete pads at the ends of this base’s 11,000-foot runway — dubbed the “Christmas tree” for their angular markings — could once again find several B-52s parked on them, laden with nuclear weapons and set to take off at a moment’s notice.

“This is yet one more step in ensuring that we’re prepared,” Gen. David Goldfein, Air Force chief of staff, said in an interview during his six-day tour of Barksdale and other U.S. Air Force bases that support the nuclear mission. “I look at it more as not planning for any specific event, but more for the reality of the global situation we find ourselves in and how we ensure we’re prepared going forward.”…. read more

Lindsey Graham after meeting with Mattis: ‘The war is moving to Africa’


Washington Examiner: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Friday that U.S. global counter-terrorism operations are set to expand and become more aggressive following a meeting with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis about troop deaths in Niger.

That will include more operations in Africa where four soldiers were killed this month after being ambushed by Islamic State-aligned fighters and a loosening of the military’s rules of engagement to allow the killing of those considered part of a terrorist group, even if they do not present an immediate threat to the U.S., Graham said after emerging from his Senate office with Mattis…… read more

Opinion by Bible Prophecy Tracker: October 4, 2017 headline: “4 US Troops Killed in Niger” left a lot of questions …

Image result for 4 us troops killed in niger

Where is Niger? Why are US troops there? How is it that US forces could be overwhelmed? Is Niger the next Bengazi?  What is the US going to do about it?

Aside from the political noise surrounding a phone call made by President Trump to the widow of US Army Sgt. La David Johnson (second from left), Niger is next door to Mali and Mali was a topic of several posts we did in 2013 regarding the spread of al Qaeda forces in North Africa…. read more

WND, Jan 23, 2013: “Recent attacks by Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb in northern Mali may well  represent an overall strategy by al-Qaida central – headed by Ayman al-Zawahiri – to build a stage in northern Africa to launch attacks into Western Europe.”

On October 4, 2017 out post “Turkey Opens Its Largest Military Base In Somalia” exposed the Turkish influence on the Gog Magog nations of Cush (Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia) and Put (Libya). It is no longer a mystery as to why these nations join in the invasion with Russia, Iran and Turkey.

Niger, like most of North Africa, is over 90% Muslim, and it could be that Ezekiel’s prophecy “and the many people with you” (Ez. 38:9) could mean additional North African nations in Gog Magog.

Front Page Mag provides the answer as to why US troops were overwhelmed:

“It wasn’t President Trump who deployed our soldiers to Niger. That was Obama’s doing.  American soldiers in Iraq and Syria were put in the same strange situation of being deployed in a war zone without a combat mission.  

Except to defend themselves. 

Or as Obama put it, “The recently deployed forces have deployed with weapons for the purpose of providing their own force protection and security.” 

Lindsey Graham:“The war is headed to Africa. It’s beginning to morph. As we suppress the enemy in the Mideast, they are going to move. They are not going to quit,” he said.

The Senator is correct. No matter how many terror groups are defeated, the ideology of hatred that Ishmael and Esau have for Jacob (Gen. 35:10) will not end until the King of Kings returns (Isa. 63:1-3; Rev. 19:13-15).

World War 3: American attack helicopters MOBILISED in Seoul as North Korea tensions soar


Apache helicopter and Kim Jong-unThe south’s Maritime Counter Special Operations (MCSOF) unit is being boosted by the addition of nearly 50 Apache choppers to counter a possible attack by Kim Jong-un’s regime from the sea.

The AH-64D Apaches – the same model of helicopter piloted by Prince Harry – have joined a MCSOF exercise already underway in the Yellow Sea, to the west of the Korean Peninsula.

The announcement comes as North Korean special forces have been spotted near the Northern Limit Line (NLL), the disputed maritime border between the rouge state and South Korea…. read more

The Future US Military: a Giant, Armed Nervous System


Defense One: Leaders of the Air Force, Navy, Army and Marines are converging on a vision of the future military: connecting every asset on the global battlefield.

That means everything from F-35 jets overhead to the destroyers on the sea to the armor of the tanks crawling over the land to the multiplying devices in every troops’ pockets. Every weapon, vehicle, and device connected, sharing data, constantly aware of the presence and state of every other node in a truly global network. The effect: an unimaginably large cephapoloidal nervous system armed with the world’s most sophisticated weaponry.

In recent months, the Joint Chiefs of Staff put together the newest version of their National Military Strategy. Unlike previous ones, it is classified. But executing a strategy requiring buy-in and collaboration across the services. In recent months, at least two of the service chiefs talked openly about the strikingly similar direction that they are taking their forces…. read more

Opinion by Bible Prophecy Tracker: Isn’t it interesting that the news keep pointing towards the apocalyptic books of Daniel and Revelation?

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. Daniel 11:40

The army of Antichrist will be one of four power blocks in the world at the end of this age. His power will be so great that Daniel 7:23 says he will trample and break the world into pieces. John tells us that his power comes directly from the pit of hell, Revelation 13.

The nagging question is, how could all this happen with a superpower with the strength of the US military? The only plausible answer I can come up with is that the United States will somehow become a part of the Beast Empire.

King of the North: re-formed Syria, Iraq, Russia, Iran, Turkey (Ezek. 38:1-6)
King of the South: Egypt, North Africa, (Dan. 11:36-39, 11:40)
Western Alliance, Beast Army of Antichrist – revived Roman Empire (Psalm 2:1-4, Rev.16:14, 19:19)
Kings of the East – China South East Asia (Rev. 16:12)
Two thousand years ago John wrote this:

1 John 2:18 “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.”
