It’s disappointing to start the first day of the new year with an Update to this thread, however, here is the reality of the continued actions of this U.S. administration against Israel - and the fact this administration taunts the God of Israel when He has no alternative to uphold His Word and promise that “The God of Israel will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem” Zechariah 12:9

Obama’s 2015 gift for Israel and Mid East: Funding for a new Iraqi army – dominated by Iran’s Rev Guards - Reprint

President Barack Obama’s New Year gift to Israel and the Middle East is a multibillion fund for establishing an Iraqi army as a division of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC). Wednesday, the last day of 2014, two defense ministers, Iran’s Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqani and Iraq’s Khallid al-Obeidi, signed a pact whereby Iran i.e. the Revolutionary Guards, will “continue to train new Iraqi military units" for replacing the army that crumbled under the onslaught launched by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant since last June.

“We do not see any other option than cooperation and being on the same side as Iran to uproot the terrorists,” said the Iraqi general.

But he carefully avoided mentioning the 1,850 US soldiers posted to Baghdad, Kurdistan’s Irbil and the Al Asad air base in the western province of Anbar, or the 1,300 addition American combat troops, including paratroops of the elite 82nd Airborne Division’s 3rd Brigade Combat Team.

The 3,150 US troops currently serving in Iraq are therefore sharing the task of rebuilding Iraqi military units with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards!

Two other key points glossed over by the two defense ministers are revealed here by DEBKAfile’s exclusive military and intelligence sources: The sources of financing and recruits.

On the quiet, President Obama has promised Tehran and Baghdad to put up the funding for the new Iraqi army. It is to come out of the US budgetary allocation for the war on terror – a truly ironic gesture considering the missions of the Revolutionary Guards Corps’s pro-active arm, its Al Qods Brigades, which are primarily to orchestrate external terrorism.

The source of the new manpower was disclosed by Deputy Commander of the IRGC Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami, when he announced this week that Iran was assembling a mighty army from the various Shiite militias fighting in Syria and Iraq. “This force will be larger even than the Lebanese Hizballah,” he boasted.

All those militias are under the direct command of the Guards. Therefore, the Obama administration has committed the United States to forging a strong military bond with Tehran and providing military and financial assistance for the creation of a strong regional Shiite armed force that will elevate Iran to the standing of leading military power in the Middle East.  

US-Iranian cooperation in the war on ISIS is already in full swing in Iraq between the US officers and troops posted there and the headquarters of Iranian Al Qods Brigades Commander, Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Iraq’s Shiite Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi provides liaison. So closely are the two forces aligned, that no Iraqi Shiite operation goes forward without first being cleared with the US command....’s-2015-gift-for-Israel-and-Mid-East-Funding-for-a-new-Iraqi-army-–-dominated-by-Iran’s-Rev-Guards-... Again, this U.S. Administration puts its finger in the eye of the Apple of God’s eye, Israel...Almighty God’s response will be true to His Word...“I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you” Genesis 12:3

I believe things are about to get a whole lot worse, and their will be dark days ahead for America. “And so, dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen, make every effort to be found living peaceful lives that are pure and blameless in his sight” 2 Peter 3:14 ...”Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.  Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” I Thessalonians 5:12-22

Hezbollah: Sunnis, Shiites will unite against Israel in next war

ISIS is Sunni - Hezbollah is Shiite
A top official from the terror group Hezbollah claims that despite deep internal divisions between Shiite and Sunni Muslims, thousands of Sunnis will join the radical Shiite terror group in its next fight against Israel...“Hezbollah’s response to Israel’s bet on Sunni-Shiite strife is this: The resistance is preparing for the next war with Israel, and thousands of our Sunni brothers in Lebanon will be among the ranks (of the) resistance,”...He further warned of the Islamic State group, saying they might use terror to target Lebanon with the hopes of extending their “emirate.”...,7340,L-4611240,00.html......It cannot be much clearer here that the Islamic Caliphate will be made up of all the radical Islamic groups and States - Hezbollah and ISIS will merge for the common goal of a collective and united effort to annihilate Israel - AKA Psalm 83 ...Bible prophecy being fulfilled in real time before our watching eyes!!

Hundreds of Hamas Terrorists in Israel Switching to ISIS

As new details are revealed in the investigation of the Islamic State (ISIS) terror cell in Hevron, security officials estimate that hundreds of Hamas terrorists are leaving the "moderate" terrorist group in favor of ISIS to wage war on Israel - and the Palestinian Authority.  Reportedly the security system assesses that hundreds of other terrorists have made the move to ISIS like Shehada, and are in contact with the terrorist organization through online social media. "This cell was just the tip of the iceberg," a security source was quoted as saying. "There are terrorists who are tired of Hamas because it is portrayed as moderate and not aggressive and extremist enough against Israel."...

Will Israel Attack Iran in 2015? - Bill Salus

It sounds absurd, but Israeli officials are warning that Iran could strike America with a nuclear weapon in 2015!

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dual concerns about Iran nuclear ambitions. He has publicly stated, “The goal is to prevent Iran from having the capability to manufacture and deliver nuclear weapons. That means zero enrichment, zero centrifuges, zero plutonium, and of course an end to ICBM (Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles) development.”  Nuclear negotiations with Iran continue to fail and Israel can wait no longer. They are likely to strike Iran’s nuclear and ICBM programs in 2015. This could result in an epic biblical disaster! It may be exactly what the ancient prophecy inscribed in Jeremiah 49:34-39 informs us about!  Iran has double trouble in the end times. They are part of Ezekiel 38, the Magog Invasion, and Jeremiah 49, the nuclear disaster of Elam! Jeremiah’s vastly overlooked prophecy is probably the next biblical predictions to find fulfillment! ...See Video below

Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?

The words to this rock and roll hit recorded by the band Chicago in January of 1969 comes to mind, when listening to this word delivered by Jonathan Cahn, the messianic Jewish Rabbi and pastor best known for his best selling book "The Harbinger" and most recently his best selling book “The Mystery of the Shemitah: The 3,000-Year-Old Mystery That Holds the Secret of America's Future.”...listen to Cahn’s message delivered recently on the Jim Bakker Show, starting at (forward to) the 2:00 minute point in the video to the 6:25 minute mark...hear the story of the picture below and its significance!!  ...God seems to be giving us warning after warning of what time it is and what we can expect - the year of the Shemitah, the year of the blood moons, and many other end time signs being fulfilled...Is anyone listening?  Note the hour glass and the clock face on our Home Page - Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?

IF you listen to the entire video, Bakker and other guests in this video seem to be promoting a mid tribulation rapture position, which is not supported by  The title and some thoughts herein were paraphrased from

Israel in the Crosshairs of the Middle East War Drums
Clear prophetic signs of what time it is!!


A Continuing Update (#19) to: “Is The Psalm 83 Confederacy (Islamic Caliphate) Surrounding Israel?”

“So you also, when you see all these things, know that it [He] is near - at the doors!  Matthew 24:33 …to this end, consider this weeks select news below and the commentary which follows…

Nasrallah: Hezbollah prepared for war deep into Israel, beyond the Galilee

"We have made all necessary preparations for a future war with Israel," Hezbollah chief says…Hezbollah is prepared for military intervention in Israel's Galilee and beyond, deeper into Israeli territory, said the group's leader Hassan Nasrallah.  "We have made all necessary preparations for a future war with Israel,"…Nasrallah said that Hezbollah has more types of weapons than Israel can imagine……"We have made all necessary preparations for a future war with Israel" could that statement be any more prophetic!  Hezbollah, a terrorist organization and proxy of Iran, appears to be ramping up for a final war with Israel.  Hezbollah is part of the “inhabitants of Tyre” among the ten Arab populations spoken about in Psalm 83:6-8... Nasrallah needs to read the Bible (Psalm 83) as his plan does not end well for Hezbollah in this soon coming war of extermination.  The Psalm states that the immediate neighbors surrounding Israel, will launch such a war for the purpose of "wiping out Israel as a nation" (verse 4). The nations described are those with a common border with Israel today (verses 6-8).  Does Israel win? The rest of the psalm is a prayer for the victory of Israel (verses 9-18) and we know from Zechariah 12:6 that Israel will be like "a firepot among pieces of wood and a flaming torch among sheaves, so they will consume on the right hand and on the left all the surrounding peoples..."  …Clear enough for me!

Hezbollah's firepower of 150,000 projectiles exceeds all European armies combined

The IDF must be prepared for three principal security scenarios in the near future, former national security adviser Maj.- Gen. (res.) Yaakov Amidror has said, naming them as a large-scale ground war against Hezbollah in Lebanon, attrition against Hamas in Gaza, and the possibility of a military operation in Iran…“The strongest of them is Hezbollah, which was formed with a dual purpose in mind: It represents Iran’s long reach in the area and against Israel, and it aims to control Lebanon.  Hezbollah most closely resembles an army, and its arsenal totals some 150,000 missiles and rockets, several thousand of which can target any area in Israel.  “This rare and substantial firepower even exceeds the firepower possessed by most of the European states combined,” Additionally, Hezbollah is armed with surface-to-sea missiles, anti-aircraft missiles, drones and modern anti-tank missiles……Hezbollah is a VERY serious adversary on the northern border of Israel and would get the first call to all out war with Israel when Israel strikes Iran’s area of ancient Elam.  Hezbollah is either going to need to be taken out by Israel just prior to the Jeremiah 49: 34-39 strike, or at the same time the strike occurs…my comments as to the end result for Hezbollah are posted in the prior article above…God’s Word says it, I believe it!

Islamic State has Breached Saudi Borders

While the world’s media focused on the events of Charlie Hebdo tragedy, it has simply ignored the terrorist attacks in the Middle East. Moreover, this very attacked has highlighted a major shift in the situation in the region, putting the primary strategic partner of the US in the Arab world – Saudi Arabia at risk.  Early on January 5 four ISIL militants crossed the border of Saudi Arabia in the Northern Province area.  During a shootout with the Saudi border patrol that broke out when the militants attacked a checkpoint, one of the terrorists was killed while the other detonated an explosive belt, killing three Saudi soldiers.  The attack on the border checkpoint near the town of Arar means that now ISIL has officialy started assaulting Saudi Arabia…things are looking grim for the Saudi authorities, given the fact that a total of 5 to 7 thousand Saudi citizens are fighting under the Islamic State banner……ISIS infiltrating yet another bordering State to Israel, which is involved in the Psalm 83 War…ISIS now has a presence in every single State and terrorist organization named in Psalm 83!! …is their any doubt that “The Psalm 83 Confederacy (ISIS - Islamic Caliphate) is Surrounding Israel?”

Up to 700 Turkish Nationals Have Joined Islamic State

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said up to 700 Turkish nationals have joined the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization, sounding the alarm over the risk of attacks inside Turkey if the terrorists return home…He added that Turkey had barred entry to around 7,250 people from abroad who were planning to join ISIS and said 1,160 would-be terrorists were deported……clearly ISIS plan is to surround Israel with a united Islamic Caliphate with the end goal of "wiping out Israel as a nation"…Biblical prophecy being fulfilled in real time before our eyes!

Wild Cheers For Proposed Invasion Of Israel From NATO Ally
Turkish and Palestinian flags fluttered like angry birds in a crowd of thousands of people chanting “Allahu Akbar!” and “Down with Israel!”…“God willing, we will liberate Jerusalem together.”…“Know this, that strong Turkey is the strength of Palestine and of Jerusalem. Turkey is the strength that represents all Muslims.” …Turkey broke off its once-friendly relationship with Israel in 2010 and then Erdogan turned on his former ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.  Turkey has a double-edged policy toward ISIS as it plays both sides of the war against the Islamic State. Erdogan also supported the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt, a move that eventually backfired as the Brotherhood was later tossed out of power by Egypt’s military…“The prime minister is the number-two man and he’s shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ to the idea of them leading an invasion of Israel and taking Jerusalem,”…“Now, if anyone is doubting an Islamic takeover and Turkey is now emerging as a radical Islamic nation and they have the largest army in the region then they have their head in the sand……once strong allies, Turkey and Israel are now bitter rivals.  The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, recently and very publically criticized Israel’s PM Netanyahu for participating in the march of solidarity with other world leaders in Paris, saying that Israel had been “waging state terror” in Gaza. A top Israeli official fired back, calling Mr. Erdogan an “anti-Semitic bully.”…This development of Turkey aligning itself with Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal, is a troubling sign, and Turkey’s strengthening economic ties with Russia, leaves little room for doubting, its prophesied end time role, as part of Ezekiel 38,39 to destroy Israel.

Iran Building Missile Sites in Syria

Iranian military leaders admitted this week to building and operating missile-manufacturing plants in Syria, where it was also revealed that Tehran is helping to build a secret nuclear facility…Iran’s Supreme Leader ordered forces to build and operate missile plants in Syria, where Iran continues to fight on behalf of embattled leader Bashar al-Assad, according to regional media reports…Iran’s military actions in Syria could constitute a gross violation of sanctions on the regime enacted by the United Nations and Western powers……this latest development could certainly be the impetus for the fulfillment of Isaiah 17

Russia Is Losing Control Over The European Gas

Russia has reportedly struck a deal with Turkey for a new pipleine in a move to regain leverage on Europe.  Oil isn't Russia's only problem.  The energy exporter is losing its dominance over the European gas market…Russia provided one-third of the natural gas that European countries relied on both for heating their homes and running industries. Because Russia played such a huge role in the gas market, it was able to command high prices… …this move stems from the recent created drop in the price of oil – see “Did The Saudis And The US Collude In Dropping Oil Prices?” …The last three articles above are concerning the Axis of the Gog Magog War (Russia, Turkey & Iran – the largest players in the War of Ezekiel 38, 39), and the likely “hook in the jaw” for Gog, Prince of Rosh is the very significant Oil and Gas reserves that Israel now possesses, and other very significant reserves they may control after the soon coming regional wars (i.e., Psalm 83…which may expand Israel’s land mass back to the Abrahamic Covenant borders God promised Israel).  With Russia currently being squeezed by the U.S. and the Saudis, who are not only punishing its two rivals, Russia and Iran, for their support of Bashar al-Assad’s regime in the Syrian civil war, but another reason may revolve around who controls the oil and gas in the Middle East, and thus the weakening of Russia, Iran and Syria by flooding the world market with cheap oil (as we are currently seeing)…make no mistake, the Russia Bear is awake and will roar! …As a key ally of Syria, supplying Assad with billions in weaponry, (“Gog”) Putin, along with Iran, has found himself targeted by the House of Saud. Putin's territorial ambitions in the Ukraine have also put him at odds with US President Barack Obama and leaders of the EU.  Iran needs $140 a barrel oil to balance its budget and Russian economy is totally reliant on high oil prices.  Putin is a master player in the chess game of energy politics – how long with this go on before Putin strikes back with a vengeance?  The likely scenario is that Israel will strike preemptively, or will be forced into multiple regional Wars (Psalms 83, Jeremiah 49, Isaiah 17 & 19, Ezekiel 35, Zephaniah 2:4-15, Zechariah 12:1-9) and with a massive Israeli victory (prophesied) will resulting in increasing its borders ( - after a short period of time, living in peace and security, it sets the stage and becomes the impetus for Russia to “make an evil take plunder and to take booty” and lead the Ezekiel 38 & 39 War against Israel...It is not hard to see how all of this is going to play out – as we get closer to the day of our redemption, the light and lens of Scripture overlaying the headline news is making everything unknown, visible and very clear “for the light is making everything visible” Eph 5:14a …do not doubt it, we are at the door-step of the fulfillment of these very significant prophetic events!

The timing of all of this could also (possibly) be very interesting…

"And I will show wonders in the heavens, and in the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke.  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah."  Joel 2:30 -31

"The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before that great and glorious Day of the Lord." Acts 2:20

The Jewish Talmud (book of tradition / Interpretation) says; "When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel. If its face is as red as blood, (it is a sign that) the sword is coming to the world." Therefore: Lunar Eclipse = bad omen for the Jewish people and Israel; Blood Moon = sword coming; Solar Eclipse = bad omen for the world.

Every time a blood moon pattern has appeared on Jewish feast days a big event affects the nation of Israel…See this webpage for some excellent history on key events affecting Israel (other comment from this page are indicated by * below), also see comments in our Blood Moon Tetrad page

NASA’s website predicts a total solar eclipse will occur on the 20th of March 2015. The eclipse takes place on the Jewish New Year for KINGS which is 1st of Nissan of the Jewish Calendar. The Moon will block out the Sun’s light and caste a shadow of darkness upon the Earth. The Jewish New Year solar eclipse will be followed only one month later by the Jewish Passover lunar eclipse when the Moon will appear as Red Blood on April 4th, 2015. Speculation is mounting regarding the close proximity of Solar and Lunar eclipses occurring on Jewish Holidays only a month apart and in the middle of a Tetrad sequence also occurring on Jewish Holidays. The Bible contain several warnings regarding the occurrence of solar and lunar eclipses together.

Repeated calls by radical Muslims for a world-wide jihad are now heard everywhere - from Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, the Palestinian territories in Israel, and even from Muslim groups in London and France. The scene is set to launch a major attack against non-Islamic infidels (as was just experienced in France). The suicide bomb mentality of these terrorist Islamists has over and over demonstrated that they have a fanatical, religious-driven hatred for their enemies and will not hesitate to plunge the whole world into chaos! …Israel still remains their most important target *

In Biblical prophecies there is a direct correlation between signs in heavenly bodies and distressing events happening on earth…. We are rapidly approaching (or we are in) the time of the fulfillment of these signs.

Mark 13:24 - 46, "But in those days the sun shall be darkened (eclipse) and the moon shall not give its light (eclipse) then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."

Note, it DOES NOT say ON that (or those) days the Son of man will come, like some like to speculate, however “then they shall see” likely AFTER at some point or maybe close to those events…”before the coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah"  Joel 2:30 -31 and “before that great and glorious Day of the Lord" Acts 2:20

Yeshua (Jesus) told His disciples what would be the signs of the end of the age and some of them involved signs in the heavens he closes commanding them to ‘watch’ 4 times. To be a "Watcher, and observe what is happening in the heavens" relating to the Last Day, when "unusual signs" are seen in the heavens we watch, pray and record.

> "Does YHWH (Yahweh God) use the moon for signs?" Yes: Genesis 1:14, Luke 21:25.

> "Are Feasts relevant to Yahweh, and related to the moon?" Yes: Leviticus 23.

> "Are blood-red moons prophetic in Scripture?" Yes: Joel 2:10, 31; Acts 2:20; Revelations 6:12.

"Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen..." - Luke 21:36 Yeshua (Jesus) spoke those words after He warned us of many of the events that will happen in the end times. They are especially relevant to us today when we consider the volume of current headlines that are now fulfilling Bible prophecy at an absolutely amazing rate. *

The United States should have never taken its protection off Israel!. The US is slowly distancing itself from Israel while aiding her enemies. As the US is drawing away, Israel will soon find another protector, which will bring her real salvation, namely Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ). The situation in the Middle East is extremely volatile, and at any given moment a massive regional war could break out.  Iran and Russia are using Syria to draw Israel into a war, and they may be successful. There are many indications, as pointed to in the articles this week above, that the tension between Israel and her Muslim neighbours are close to a breaking-point. Iran's president and religious leaders continually make calls for the complete annihilation of Israel and the world does not come to Israel’s defense!  Iran’s nuclear programme has been accelerated and they have armed Hezbollah in Lebanon to the teeth and now we hear of Iran building missile sites in Syria.

We have the withdrawing of the United States from the world scene, a weakened yet dangerous Syria, and Russian armies in the Ukraine and Middle East ready for war. It only takes one spark to get it all going! The next weeks and months are very important to see how all of these things play out in the Epicenter.  It could be very eventful… as the Middle East is absolutely lining up to Bible prophecy! *

All of this begs the question “Does anyone know what time it is?  Does anyone really care?”  The words to this rock and roll hit recorded by the band Chicago in January of 1969 comes to mind, when thinking about everything addressed above coupled with recent messages by Jonathan Cahn, best known for "The Harbinger" and “The Mystery of the Shemitah: The 3,000-Year-Old Mystery That Holds the Secret of America's Future.”...God seems to be giving us warning after warning of what time it is and what we can expect - the year of the Shemitah, the year of the blood moons, and many other end time signs being fulfilled on a daily basis...Is anyone listening?  Note the hour glass and the clock face on our Home Page ( - Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?  …you can listen to Cahn’s message delivered recently starting at (forward to) the 2:00 minute point in the video to the 6:25 minute mark (

“for the light is making everything visible. That is why it says, "Wake up, sleeper! Arise from the dead” Ephesians 5:14NASB  “Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed” Romans 13:11ESV

"Blow a trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the Day of the Lord is coming; surely it is near." Joel 2:1

Update #20
Is The Psalm 83 Confederacy (Islamic Caliphate) Surrounding Israel?

Joel Rosenberg: 'I Believe [ISIS] It's a Demonic Movement'

Author Joel Rosenberg is sounding the alarm that radical Islam is spreading and if world leaders don't deal decisively with it, we're all in danger. "The Islamic State is not interested in being contained to Syria and Iraq," Rosenberg told CBN News. "(ISIS) sees itself as building a regional caliphate or Islamic kingdom and eventually a global kingdom and it will kill anyone that gets in its way."  Rosenberg believes ISIS is the new radical Islamic brand.  "They have come on so fast, so strong, I believe it's a demonic movement," he said. "They are not just terrorizing people, they are engaged in genocide. In Syria and Iraq, they are trying to eliminate Christianity in those two countries."


The Islamic State’s Third Target

With reports indicating that Islamic State militants are managing to gain territory in Iraq and Syria in spite of US and coalition air strikes, the world is witnessing a nightmare scenario unfold across the Middle East: what if the Islamic State simply cannot be stopped?...President Obama last year stated that ISIL was merely a “jayvee team” and hardly worth worrying about, (Joel) Rosenberg stated, “officials [in Jordan] warned me that what kept them up at night was the rise of this Al-Qaeda offshoot, ISIL, and the reality that an Islamist-led overthrow of Jordan was a genuine worst-case scenario and a possibility.”...“Both the radical Sunnis and Shias have an eschatology – or End Times belief system – that talks about establishing the Islamic Kingdom or Caliphate: the radical Shias are waiting for their Messiah while they build nuclear weapons, before picking an apocalyptic fight with the West or another nation in the region,” Rosenberg explains.  However radical Sunnis, such as ISIS, have decided not to wait: they are building the Caliphate now, “desperately trying to usher in End of Days by killing and enslaving those caught up in their apocalyptic, genocidal vision. This is demonic. When ISIS chops off someone’s head, this is not just terrorizing – these are blood sacrifices to the Islamic State’s ‘God’.’ These are the genocidal conditions emerging in Iraq and Syria.”...

IAF strike Sunday in Syria could be 'costly' for Mideast

Following reports of an IAF helicopter strike on Sunday that targeted a convoy of Hezbollah operatives and killed 10, the al-Manar news channel said the attack suggested that "the enemy has gone crazy because of Hezbollah's growing capabilities and it could lead to a costly adventure that will put the Middle East at stake."...the son of the late Hezbollah leader Mughniyeh was killed...Mughniyeh, the son of the late Hezbollah leader Imad Mughniyeh, was believed to have been in the planning stages of more deadly terror attacks against Israel in the Golan Heights, which would have included rockets, cross-border infiltrations, border bombings and anti-tank fire. The attacks were designed to kill IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians who live in the Golan... and,7340,L-4616368,00.html

Israel in the Crosshairs of the Middle East War Drums - Update
Adding the Russia-Iran Axis of Ezekiel 38 & 39 to the ISIS Axis of Psalm 83

A Continuing Update (#21) to: “Is The Psalm 83 Confederacy (Islamic Caliphate) Surrounding Israel?”


Todenhofer lived side by side with the jihadist fighters for ten days in the Islamic State-stronghold city of Mosul, Iraq. He was accompanied only by his son, who served as his cameraman.

“I always asked them about the value of mercy in Islam,” but “I didn’t see any mercy in their behavior,” explained Todenhofer. He added, “Something that I don’t understand at all is the enthusiasm in their plan of religious cleansing, planning to kill the non-believers… They also will kill Muslim democrats because they believe that non-ISIL-Muslims put the laws of human beings above the commandments of God.”

The German reporter then elaborated on how shocked he was about how “willing to kill” the ISIS fighters are. He said that they were ready to commit genocide. “They were talking about [killing] hundreds of millions. They were enthusiastic about it, and I just cannot understand that,” said Todenhofer

He warned that
the Islamic State “is much stronger than we think,” and that their recruiting has brought motivated jihadis from across the globe. “Each day, hundreds of new enthusiastic fighters are arriving,” explained Todenhofer. “There is an incredible enthusiasm that I have never seen in any other war zones I have been to.”

The journalist asserted that the U.S.-led bombing campaign was not going to stop the Islamic State and its continuing jihad. He told Al Jazeera that he believed the terror group would only be stopped if fellow Sunni Iraqis would rise up against them... year, our president (using a basketball analogy) said ISIS is still a “JayVee” team - well they look like they have their sights set on winning the NBA right now, and other World leaders better take them very Rosenberg has recently stated (see below), they have an apocalyptic, genocidal vision and are demonic!

"They are not just terrorizing people, they are engaged in genocide. In Syria and Iraq, they are trying to eliminate Christianity in those two countries."...

To add to the continued and increasing ISIS threats rushing toward the fulfillment of Psalm 83 and other prophetic regional wars, other current news is setting the stage for Ezekiel 38, 39 to follow - two of the major players of the Gog Magog War against Israel have just strengthened their military ties and leveled new war threats to Israel...

Iranian IRGC chief vows 'devastating thunderbolts' on Israel

Tehran threatens Israel after strike attributed to the IAF killed six Hezbollah fighters and six Iranian military men, including a general...The IDF raised its alert level on the northern front on Monday, in positions along the border with Syrian and Lebanon, as foreign media outlets reported that Iron Dome batteries were being deployed in the North...there are concerns in the security establishment that Hezbollah will attempt a retaliatory terror attack against Israeli forces which operate along the border. Thus, the soldiers were ordered to increase their level of alert and preparedness...,7340,L-4617222,00.html...absolute potential here to trigger Jeremiah 49:34-39!

Israel braces for early payback for deaths of Hezbollah officers, Iranian general on Golan

The dominant IDF assessment Monday, Jan. 19, is that Hezbollah will not hold off its rejoinder for the Israeli helicopter missile strike on the Golan Sunday...Israeli military chiefs are gearing up for an early Hezbollah cross-border attack on Upper or Western Galilee and have instructed local security units to stand ready, open up emergency shelters and prepare their firearm arsenals...Hezbollah, which takes its orders from Tehran, is clearly determined to establish a military presence on the Syrian Golan as a second warfront for launching a two-pronged simultaneous assault on Israel, and is bent on forcing its acceptance down Israel’s throat... will not end well for Hezbollah as Zechariah 12:6 tells us the IDF “will consume on the right hand and on the left all the surrounding peoples..."

Beirut braces for Israeli counterattack

Lebanon is bracing for an attack from Israel if the Iranian-backed Hezbollah retaliates for an Israeli military helicopter strike last week on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights...Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah already has indicated that his resistance group will retaliate for the death of Mughniyeh, 25, and the five Hezbollah fighters.  Now, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps reports that a sixth person was killed, Gen. Muhammad Ali Allahdadi.  Israel claims the Hezbollah team with the IRGC general was planning an attack on the Israeli portion of the Golan...Nasrallah has warned Israel that if it attacks Lebanon, the “Islamic Resistance” – Hezbollah – is ready to invade Galilee and the Israeli settlements that lie beyond Galilee... not take much imagination to see how all of this could easily and very quickly lead to the fulfillment of a number of Biblical prophecies, specifically Psalms 83, Jeremiah 49, Isaiah 17, Zephaniah 2:4-15, and Zechariah 12:1-9 ...this all seems to now be imminent!

Russia and Iran sign deal to widen military cooperation

MOSCOW — Russia and Iran have signed an agreement to expand their military ties and resolve a long-standing dispute over the sale of a controversial air defense system to the Islamic Republic...“The two countries decided to settle the S-300s problem,” the Iranian Defense ministry said on Tuesday without elaborating.  Russia signed a 2007 contract to sell Tehran the S-300 system, but the weaponry was never delivered amid strong objections by the United States and Israel...Iran and Russia share analysis of US global strategy, its interference in regional and international affairs and the need to cooperate in the struggle against the interference of foreign forces in the region.”... Russia-Iran axis gets stronger, and the delivery of the highly accurate and sophisticated S-300s, which are pre-destined to be delivered to their proxy Hezbollah and likely Assad in Syria, do not bode well for Israel.  Russia has not been “openly” hostile to Israel (yet), however, consider the fact that Russia and Turkey (3rd leg of the major big-3 axis of the Ezekiel 39, 39 War) just struck a new oil pipeline deal together, and the fact that Turkey hates Israel...the news above that Russia just strengthened its military ties to Iran, and the fact that Russia built Iran’s nuclear reactors, aiding their rush to WMD’s - and the fact Iran hates Israel and its proxies Syria and Hezbollah hate Israel, and all have called for the total destruction of the Jew’s...I can only conclude the obvious, that Russia Hates Israel and also ultimately wants to destroy the Jews - we know this to be true due to their leading the War of Gog & Magog - Ezekiel 38, 39.

All things are becoming crystal clear...WAKE UP CHURCH!!...Does anyone know what time it is?
“for the light is making everything visible. That is why it says, "Wake up, sleeper! Arise from the dead” Ephesians 5:14NASB  “Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed” Romans 13:11ESV

"Blow a trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the Day of the Lord is coming; surely it is near." Joel 2:1

"Encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."  Hebrews 10:25b

Is The Psalm 83 Confederacy (Islamic Caliphate) Surrounding Israel?

God Responds to Psalm 83:1! 

Just posted from Sean Osborne at Eschatology Today ...UPDATE 22 January 2015: Even though Israel's leadership did not have the real-time intel to know who was in those cars on Sunday... God did! Whatever may come in the aftermath of this critical event God knows, He has known it from before the foundation of the earth. I believe this event was an appointed warning of even greater judgments imminently coming upon those whose hatred and evil intent towards Israel, and the God of Israel whom they currently do not know, knows no bounds.  Mr. Netanyahu, leaders of Israel's government: you must recognize the hand of of the LORD your God, the God of all Israel, has moved against your enemies. Asaph's prophetic prayer, "Keep Thou not silence, O God; hold not Thy peace, and be not still, O God," (Psalm 83:1) is being answered before your eyes. "Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in His goodness. Otherwise, thou also shalt be cut off." (Romans 11:22) Look to Him, He alone is the salvation of all Israel...Amen

ISIS Aims to Occupy Mecca

The recent early morning clash between a Saudi border patrol and extremists trying to enter Saudi Arabia from Iraq appears to be the latest indicator of the Islamic State’s (ISIS) intent to expand its influence and control from its stronghold in Syria and Iraq south into Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the rest of the Arab Gulf where there is oil and what ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his followers would consider the ultimate prizes: the holy cities of Mecca and Medina...The more time ISIS has to build, establish itself and govern, the harder it will be to dislodge its troops from the region and its ideology from the minds of the people, especially the young. The conflict has hardened the minds of people in Syria and Iraq and these radicalized attitudes will likely spread with the passage of time... Arabia is ISIS’ primary target. ISIS’ core objective is to restore the caliphate (an Islamic empire led by a supreme leader), and because Saudi Arabia is the epicenter of Islam and the custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in Mecca and Medina, ISIS’ road to the caliphate lies through the kingdom and its monarchy. ISIS campaign against Saudi Arabia, is called qadimun, or “we are coming” to take over the country...The kingdom’s enormous oil fields and monetary wealth have always been coveted by Al Qaeda, as they are now by ISIS...King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia recently pointed out, ISIS is not only a threat to the Middle East [and particularly Israel], but to Europe and America. We call on the international community to form a solid coalition with Saudi Arabia to roll back ISIS’ military advances while at the same time supporting the kingdom’s ever increasing campaign to delegitimize ISIS in the eyes of the wider Sunni world, in order to ultimately destroy it... ...yes, The ISIS driven Psalm 83 Confederacy IS Surrounding Israel!  “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels." Psalm 122:6-7...May PM Benjamin Netanyahu and his Cabinet members be like “the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do”… I Chronicles 12:32

Arab official: Hamas may join Hezbollah to attack Israel

Hamas may join Hezbollah in fighting against Israel in an effort to cozy up to Iran, a senior intelligence official from an Arab country said Wednesday...Hamas support could include firing rockets out of Gaza at southern Israeli cities, opening a second front as Israel deals with fire from Lebanon and Syria...In a sign that the Lebanese terror group could be gearing up for a major confrontation with Israel, the official said dozens of Hezbollah advisers had returned urgently from Iraq to Lebanon.  Hezbollah also paid all its members’ salaries on January 27, even though the Shiite organization usually pays salaries on the first day of the month...Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon issued a stern warning to Hezbollah and its patron Syrian President Bashar Assad.  “The Assad regime is responsible for the fire into Israel, and we will exact a heavy price from any government or organization that violates our borders,” Ya’alon said Wednesday. “We have no intention of ignoring or abiding terrorist attacks on our soldiers and citizens.”... ...”No weapon formed against you shall prosper” Isaiah 54:17

Ya'alon: Iran seeking to open front against Israel on Golan Heights

“One can understand, in light of the challenges we face today, the importance of our space capability when we talk about long-range threats and, particularly, as we see, Iran, which continues to be a source of Middle East instability. The Islamic State is a phenomenon that has to be dealt with, and what we are seeing in the past 30 years is that Iran is turning into a source of instability in the Middle East…“We must be prepared for any attempt to challenge us in light of calls heard on the other side,” Ya’alon said, referring to calls in Iran to attack Israel.  “We must continue to keep calm and be patient and know how to respond in the most suitable manner, which will clarify to all who try to harm us that we will not tolerate provocations from any area…

DEBKAfile’s military sources report that Israel was standing by for a repeat of the first rocket attack by pro-Iranian elements on the Golan, including Hizballah - especially after the dire warnings of retaliation issued earlier Tuesday by Tehran – and so the Israeli air force was ready to react fast. The way is now open for both sides to escalate…In Tehran, two high Iranian officials Tuesday warned Israel to await retaliation.  Dep. Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said: "We told the Americans that the leaders of the Zionist regime should await the consequences of their act," adding, "Israel crossed our red lines."…DEBKAfile’s military sources do not rule out Iranian and Iraqi Shiite militias posted to Syria, together with Hizballah, possibly escalating attacks on Israel from the Syrian Golan in the days to come.

29 January Update and Assessment from Eschatology Today: It appears that Israel's government has decided that the deadly Hezbollah ambush of an IDF convoy inside Israeli territory today that utilized five Russian-made 9M133 Kornet anti-tank guided missiles and road-side IEDs has been avenged through the retaliatory strikes that occurred earlier today in Lebanon. 

A critical consideration that Hezbollah's offensive military capabilities must be rendered insignificant before Israel is forced to tackle the Iranian nuclear weapons program appears to have been the loosing argument during emergency deliberations in Tel Aviv today between PM Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ya'alon. 

Accordingly, it appears this evening as though Israel's leadership has opted to wage full-scale war in the near future with a nuclear-armed Iran supported by heavily-armed Hezbollah and IRGC forces arrayed in an arc extending across all of Lebanon and western Syria to the Golan rather than neutralize this close proximity threat at the present time when Israel is fully prepared and Iran does not appear ready, willing or able to apply its nascent nuclear capability in the event of the 3rd Lebanon War that was nearly triggered today. 

So, what we're left with is the mind-numbing conclusion that the jihadist Shi'a enemy launched a sophisticated retaliatory ambush and attack against the IDF on Israeli soil that could have caused a third Lebanon war this same jihadist enemy was unprepared to fight? And the government of Israel accepts this premise as a valid argument?

More questions than answers means this is not finished by any means. A major election in Israel is just a few weeks away. Let's see what tomorrow brings...

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu laid the blame on Iran for Wednesday’s multipronged attack by Hezbollah on Israel’s northern border that killed two IDF soldier...“Those behind today’s attack will pay the full price.”...“Iran is behind this heinous terrorist attack – the same Iran that the world powers are forming an agreement with, that would allow it to maintain its ability to acquire nuclear weapons capacity,” ...“Israel will not accept any attacks on its territory and it will exercise its right to self-defense and take all necessary measures to protect its population,” he added... the ring of a pending attack on Iran and the fulfillment of Jeremiah 49: 34-39...Bible prophecy about to be fulfilled before our very eyes.  See the latest on this from Bill Salus - Will the Israelis Strike Iran's Nuclear Sites?
