Israel in the Crosshairs of the Middle East War Drums - Update #7

Iran militia chief: Destroying Israel is ‘nonnegotiable’

The commander of the Basij militia of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said that “erasing Israel off the map” is “nonnegotiable…In 2014, Naqdi said Iran was stepping up efforts to arm West Bank Palestinians for battle against Israel, adding the move would lead to Israel’s annihilation…“Arming the West Bank has started and weapons will be supplied to the people of this region”…

IDF Sources: ISIS Accumulating Support Near Israel-Jordan Border

Islamic State has recently found a following among Bedouin tribes in southern Jordan, tens of kilometers away from the border with Israel…While IDF officials have confirmed there is a growing concentration of pro-ISIS supporters in Jordan's Ma'an province, kilometers away from the border with Israel, they argued it was too early to tell if active terror cells posed a genuine threat at this point…

'Influx of advanced weapons flowing into Syria, Lebanon unprecedented,'

Advanced weaponry, much of it supplied by Iran, is flowing into Syria and Lebanon, a senior Israel Navy source warned on Sunday…He said the northern front has become unified, and that Lebanon and Syria can not be viewed as separate entities anymore…Describing the quantity and quality of surface-to-sea missiles in Hezbollah’s possession as “unprecedented,”… “The types of warheads and their ranges are many,” said the source. “We are in a completely different situation. The sector has changed.”… He warned that the missile can be used to attack targets on land deep inside the country. “They can fire it at military headquarters in Tel Aviv,” he said…

Israel Sees Another War With Hezbollah Soon

Israel’s next war is likely to be fought against Lebanon’s Hezbollah terrorist militia, according to Israeli military sources. The sources cited Hezbollah’s increasing boldness of late - terrorists now openly patrol and monitor the border region. Hezbollah gunmen also walk the streets of southern Lebanon, unconcerned by the presence of the Lebanese Army or UN peacekeepers. In addition to using its large arsenal of medium and long-range missiles, the sources believe the next war with Hezbollah will see small teams of terrorists infiltrate northern Israel and briefly occupy border towns, possibly with horrific loss of life. The terms of the UN resolution that ended the last Lebanon war in 2006 demanded the disarming of Hezbollah and other militias in Lebanon. Those terms were never met, and in fact Hezbollah is stronger…

Iran and their proxies are set on “Destroying Israel” which they say is ‘nonnegotiable’ – News Flash, Jeremiah 49:37 says the destruction of Elam (southwestern Iran) is certain “I will bring disaster upon them, My fierce anger,’ says the Lord; ‘And I will send the sword after them Until I have consumed them.”  With everything ramping up again in the middle east, we will likely see the fulfillment of a number of middle east prophecies (Psalms 83, Jeremiah 49, Isaiah 17, Zephaniah 2:4-15, Zechariah 12:1-9) very shortly, and ultimately will lead to the war of Gog & Magog Ezekiel 38, 39 which God, by His hand saves Israel.  Bible prophecies being fulfilled in real time before our eyes!

April 4th, 2015 - Highlight

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.” (Joel 2:31)

A mystic rabbi living in southern Israel is urging all Jews to pray and repent as the third Blood Moon of a tetrad cycle approaches.

Rabbi Amram Vaknin, who similarly predicted the events of the Gaza flotilla and the Carmel forest fire in 2010, and Operations Pillar of Defense (2012) and Protective Edge (2014), warns that Israel is facing great judgment and potential danger at this time.

One of Rabbi Vaknin’s students, Gil Nachman, spoke to Breaking Israel News and, quoting the sage, explained that the numeric value of the Hebrew word for blood, dam, which is 44, alludes to the 44th president of the United States.

Vaknin predicted that the 44th president would bring bloodshed (dam) to the Jewish people. It should be noted that the rabbi made this prediction before President Barack Obama’s election to office.

Rabbi Vaknin called for a day of prayer at the Western Wall this past Wednesday to encourage the arrival of the Messiah and the redemption of the Jewish people and the world.

According to their Facebook page, “In these critical times, Am Israel must join together to pray to Hashem to send us Mashiach Ben David!!!”

Rabbi Vaknin is not alone amongst Jews in associating the current tetrad with Jewish redemption. With the first and third Blood Moons in this current tetrad cycle coinciding with Passover, and the second and fourth with the Feast of Tabernacles, the connections to times of redemption run deep.

The Talmud states, “In [the Hebrew month of] Nisan our forefathers were redeemed from Egypt, and in Nisan we will be redeemed.” Likewise, the Feast of the Tabernacles is associated in Jewish tradition with the battle of Gog and Magog, the final war that is said to precede the final redemption and arrival of the Messiah.

Moreover, this year in Israel is a Sabbatical, or shmitta, year, a time in which the land of Israel is commanded to be left fallow. notes a statement by the Sages in the Talmud which says, “In the sixth [year there will be] voices [of war], in the seventh [there will be] war, and at the end of the shmitta, the [Messiah] son of Jesse will arrive.” Although the Talmud never states in which seven-year cycle in history this will be fulfilled, the website suggested that thus far, our modern period fits the description.

The current tetrad marks only the fourth time in five hundred years that all four Blood Moons of the tetrad fall on Jewish holidays (and will not happen again until 2582-3).  It is the ONLY one (past and future) in conjunction with a (bulls eye super moon on the Spring Equinox and Israel’s Religious New Year) total solar eclipse in the midst of the four blood moons (two on either side).  It is the only known Total Solar Super Moon Eclipse (“Sackcloth Sun”) AND Blood Red Moon in the SAME LUNAR CYCLE…and that fall on two consecutive important days on God’s calendar – Nisan 1 (March 20th) the Biblical New Year (Exodus 12:1-2) and Nisan 14 (April 4th) Passover.  No other Tetrad before or after has a total solar eclipse exactly on the Spring Equinox that is also a Jewish New Year.

See our recent posts of 12 “unprecedented” 2015 Signs, Wonders & Insights …could this be the fulfillment of Joel 3:2 and God’s final warning?  How likely is it that all of these Signs and Wonders converging in 2015, all point to some other year or a distant and future time?...or have no meaning for us at all“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years”  Genesis 1:14 … “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.  Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”  Psalm 19:1–4 …His signs and wonders appear to be screaming out to those who are listening!

This just in from “Cindy by the Sea” which I thought was particularly interesting for today! …and ties into the article above.

Four Warned
Take a look at this - all these fours centered around this weekends lunar eclipse.

1 - It occurs on April 4, fourth month, fourth day on the Gentile, solar calendar - double 4's ...44

2 - The duration of the eclipse when it reaches its maximum will be 4 minutes and 44 seconds - 444

3 - A lunar eclipse is also known as a blood moon - dam in Hebrew (as noted above) with a numerical value of 44. (Blood also associated with the tenth plague of Passover on which this lunar eclipse appears.).

4 - President Obama is the 44th President of the United States. The first and only President to seriously undermine the state of Israel since its rebirth in 1948 with his policies, and particularly now with his demonic inspired talks with Iran.
(“Iran 3 Weeks from a Nuclear Weapon”
Obama’s deal with the devil - David Horovitz

“Netanyahu to Obama: Iran deal threatens Israel’s survival”

5 - The number 4 associated with the fourth day of creation in which the sun, moon and stars were given for signs and seasons.

6 - And, according to Bible Prophecy Numbers, the number 444 indicates a time of trial.

A few years ago, I wrote about Mark Twain and his book titled, #44, The Mysterious Stranger. It's curious, when you read the story to find out that the mysterious stranger, # 44 is none other than Lucifer, Satan, the devil himself. But, why would Twain give his character the devil, the odd name of #44?

Back in 2010 before we knew anything about the blood moons, I wrote a post titled "Testing the Earth".  In it, I explore the relationship of the 44th President with the character 44 of the Mark Twain novel, which you can find here.

It's interesting, by revisiting this, I think, I may have figured out something I missed previously. Although the previous article alludes to why Twain's character is called 44, I never quite connect the dots. I think I get it now.

It comes back to this. As I mention in the previous post, when Twain was in school he knew two Jewish boys, who he and his friends referred to as  #22 or "twice Levin".  Get it, two ones make an eleven - twice "levin" as eleven might be pronounced in the south, But, here's the kicker, which just occurred to me  -Levin, is a common Jewish name but, it is also when spelled leaven, the symbol of sin in the bible -for  leaven (yeast) is always symbolic of sin. So, as you can see, it is a play on words of sorts.

The two boys are like the number eleven doubled is 22.

And, doubled again is 44.

And, what does yeast do when added to things - it doubles or enlarges them- just like sin. Which is why at Passover all leaven must be removed from your houses.

Also, the number 11 in the Bible represents disorder, imperfection, incompleteness. Making 44 the other perfect number for the devil besides 666.

11 x 2 =22 and doubled again is 44.

Somehow, it is no accident that Twain chose these numbers a full one hundred years before another mysterious stranger, another #44 would come on the scene - Barack Hussein Obama.

Which leads me to believe that this 44th President is instrumental in both cause and effect in what is happening right now and what is being signified in just a few hours by this April 4th's blood moon.

When a golfer slices the ball and it is in danger of striking someone, he yells, "fore" -  in other words, heads up!

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee" Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  ~ Cindy

See what #44 has been doing to Israel in our rolling commentary “America God’s Disappointing Vineyard”

…Whatever the case on all of the above, one thing is certain, the time is getting very very short, and THE CHURCH NEEDS TO WAKE-UP! (Ephesians 5:14), Look-Up! (Luke 21:28), Buckle-Up! (Ephesians 6:13), because we are Going-Up! (I Thessalonians 4:16-17), SOON! (Revelation 22:12), …MARANATHA! (Revelation 22:20)

“But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.”  Ezekiel 33:6 …as Cindy stated above “HEADS UP”

God's Eternal Blessing ✡ "Do Good To Jerusalem"

"So have I turned about. I have planned in these days to do good to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah; do not fear." ZECHARIAH (8:15)

כֵּן שַׁבְתִּי זָמַמְתִּי בַּיָּמִים הָאֵלֶּה לְהֵיטִיב אֶת יְרוּשָׁלִַם וְאֶת בֵּית יְהוּדָה אַל תִּירָאוּ

זכריה ח:טו

kayn shav-tee za-mam-tee ba-ya-meem ha-ay-le l'-hay-teev et y'-ru-sha-la-yeem v'-et bayt y'-hu-da al tee-ra-u

In this verse sums up God's eternal blessing to the Nation of Israel and His holy city. Whatever the present circumstances facing Israel may be, no matter how grim or dire they seem, God, in an instant, can change all circumstances, and has promised to 'do good' to Jerusalem and its people therein. Genesis 12:3 tells us "I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

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

O Lord, protect Israel, your treasured possession, and grant her peace. May we stand by her in times of need, never forgetting your promises to your chosen people. Lord, bless us as we bless Israel.

Gog the Prince of Russia on the Prowl


“Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’—to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land”  Ezekiel 38:10-12

While most of the world is focused on continuing news about ISIS, P5+1 & Iran, and other terrorist activity like the Kenya university massacre,  Russia continues its world-wide aggression and show of force.  See below a recap of recent telling headline news concerning the
rapid advance of Gog toward the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38, 39

The Russian Bear is on the prowl - World Prepares for Russian Aggression

Russia has gained control over South Ossetia and Abkhazia from neighboring Georgia; they occupy Crimea; In Ukraine, Russia has been fueling a civil war; Moldova (western side of Ukraine) has signed a regional cooperation agreement with Russia; Tucked between Lithuania and Poland, is Kaliningrad, an orphan Russian territory that gives Russia a strategic military location right in the middle of the Baltic States, Poland, and the Scandinavian nations across the Baltic Sea; the threat of Russian expansionism also has other Eastern European countries taking notice, and preparing for the possibility of war; Poland is giving civilians military training in case there is an invasion; Lithuania is restoring the draft and teaching citizens what to do in case of war; Latvia has plans to give university students military training next year; Cyprus could also serve as a strategic Russian location in the Mediterranean that could serve to keep an eye on Europe from the south, while also giving Russia a staging area near the Middle East, just west of Israel; Russia has also been flying military aircraft around American airspace, largely near the Bering Strait; Bombers have been detected as far south as 50 miles off California’s northern coast, a move that was no doubt deliberately provocative; Russian aircraft have also pushed the limits in Europe, around Britain, Ireland, Sweden and Norway; NATO, allied jets were scrambled to monitor Russian warplanes around Europe more than 100 times last year; Activity by the Russian military is also present in the western Atlantic and areas in and around the Gulf of Mexico; Gog Putin’s government also announced plans to reopen 10 former Soviet-era military bases in the Arctic, including 14 airfields; A shipyard in Severodvinsk, the largest city on the Russian Arctic Coast, has begun building four nuclear-powered submarines for the first time in decades.  The Pentagon has confirmed all reports as accurate…

…Although written for Israel, it seems like Ezekiel 38:10 & 11 has application to some other nations as a warm-up exercise, prior to its fulfillment against  Israel…”thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’—to take plunder and to take booty” …sounds like this applied to all the counties in the article above!

Russia starts nationwide show of force

Last month more than 45,000 Russian troops as well as war planes and submarines started military exercises across much of the country in one of the Kremlin's biggest shows of force since its ties with the West plunged to Cold War-lows… Putin called the Navy's Northern Fleet to full combat readiness in exercises in Russia's Arctic North apparently aimed at dwarfing military drills in neighboring Norway, a NATO member… Putin, has promised to spend more than 21 trillion rubles ($340 billion) by the end of the decade to overhaul Russia's fighting forces… Tensions between Russia and Europe worsened last year, leading eight northern European nations to promise to boost cooperation to counter an increase in Moscow's military activity…

Iran, Russia To Sign Defense MoU

Iran and Russia will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the expansion of military cooperation… The further expansion of defense cooperation between Iran and Russia plays a major role in maintaining regional and global security, the Iranian defense minister said …

Putin ends ban on delivery of S-300 missile system to Iran

Putin signed a decree on Monday lifting a ban on the delivery of S-300 anti-missile systems to Iran…Russia's Defense Ministry will be ready to swiftly deliver the S-300 missile system to Iran…
In recent years, Russia did not supply Iran with the advanced missile system, due in part to Israeli and American requests. Had the advanced missile system been delivered to Iran, it would have made an Israeli strike against Iran's nuclear facilities much harder

…with the devastating impact of a bad final P5+1 Agreement with Iran, and now the soon delivery of sophisticated new weapons to Iran by Russia, Israel’s strike on Iran – which is the prophecy of Jeremiah 49:35-39, is on the verge of being fulfilled.

Russia says it has the right to deploy nuclear weapons in Crimea

Russia has the right to deploy nuclear arms in the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, which Moscow annexed from Ukraine last year, a Foreign Ministry official said…

Russian Jets Run 'Attack Scenarios' on NATO Ships

Russian fighter jets have been using NATO ships in the Black Sea as target practice to run “attack scenarios,” a situation that NATO military officials say they are aware of and prepared to defend against if necessary… In the latest sign of provocation against Western forces by Moscow, Russia is ordering its newest Su-30 multi-role fighter jets to track NATO forces and run mock attack drills to simulate penetrating NATO’s anti-air systems…

Russia and North Korea declare 2015 a "year of friendship"

North Korea and Russia have declared 2015 a year of bilateral friendship… The biggest cause for concern is the growing military alliance between Russia and North Korea, with the two regimes recently announcing plans to conduct a series of joint army, navy and air force exercises this year. Mr Kim is also keen to get his hands on advanced military technology…

…as Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas are the proxy of Iran, so may North Korea become a proxy of Russia…increasing news in the press of late, concerning the threat of an EMP attack on America could be the possible work of this axis of evil.

Russian 'Doctor of Military Sciences': Moscow should nuke Yellowstone if tensions boil over

A Russian "Docter of Military Sciences," described scenarios that involved dropping a nuclear weapon near Yellowstone's supervolcano or the San Andreas Fault… Since last year's illegal annexation of Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin has responded to international criticism and economic sanctions placed on his country by flexing his nation's military muscle around the world…Putin Once Casually Said He Could Destroy America In A Half-Hour…
…is Putin also acting in tandem with North Korea and Iran to destroy the “Big Satan” in order to setup the “Little Satan” for elimination – see below

Putin to Arab League: Palestinians have right to state with capital in East Jerusalem

Moscow will support the Palestinians in their efforts to build an independent state with a capital in east Jerusalem, Russia's President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday… Putin also spoke on the importance of synchronizing the efforts of the Arab League with those of the United Nations, the United States, the European Union and Russia… …Gog seems to now be involved in the affairs of Israel, to support a “would be State” and terrorist organization who has as its stated goal, the destruction of Israel.  This is really the end goal of Gog, the destruction of Israel and the plunder of its resources.

It is very apparent, the Prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal is making rapid preparations for the soon coming War of Gog & Magog spoken of in Ezekiel 38, 39 [although, he may not actually fully realize that yet] - and while Putin continues to strengthen strategic alliances with virtually all of the nations represented in Ezekiel 38, Israel is facing the realities of a nuclear Iran as the P5+1 enters an agreement with Iran that will result in the annihilation of Israel…Israel will be left no choice but to pre-emptively strike Iran very soon, as its once strong ally, the U.S., has turned on Israel and DOES NOT have her back, as has been stated.  An Israeli strike on Iran (which is imminent as prophesied in Jeremiah 49: 35-39) could very well set in motion a domino effect for the fulfillment of additional last-days Biblical prophecies including Isaiah 17, Isaiah 19, Psalm 83, Zechariah 12, where Israel dramatically increases her borders to a Greater Israel [see map] which appears to be the footprint of the borders of the land covenant that God made with Abraham.  Also see

Ezekiel 38:11 states Israel will then be living for a time in Peace and safety, without walls or gates, when Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal makes an evil plan and gathers an army to take to take great plunder...and the "hook in the jaws" (v.4) for this "evil plan" is simply two words GAS & OIL.  Israel is about to greatly expand its territory, and Putin, the current Prince of Rosh, in his power surge is not about to let Israel control the Gas & Oil wealth in the territories Israel then controls.  (Note: For Russia everything is about GAS & Oil as it supplies over 50% of Central Europe oil and gas and 30% of the EU and by its hostile takeover of Crimea, Russia gained control of about 70% of Ukraine’s Black Sea offshore oil and gas drilling rights).

Make no mistake about it, “Gog the Prince of Russia is on the Prowl” and Gog is clearing a path that leads to Jerusalem and the War of Gog & Magog.

Here are some of the promises of the God of Israel: “The God of Israel will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem” Zechariah 12:9 … “Like birds hovering overhead, the LORD Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will 'pass over' it and will rescue it." Isaiah 31:5 … Rest assured that No weapon formed against you shall prosper”  Isaiah 54:17

The proof of the promises above? …see the soon coming fate of Mr. Gog the Prince of Rosh, Meshech, as prophesied in Ezekiel 38:21,22; 39:3-5, 11...and God's purpose for all of this - "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.”..."So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let them profane My holy name anymore. Then the nations shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel"...Ezekiel 38:23 & 39:7

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

O Lord, protect Israel, your treasured possession, and grant her peace.   May we stand by her in times of need, never forgetting your promises to your chosen people.  Lord, bless us as we bless Israel (Genesis 12:1-3)

Israel in the Crosshairs of the Middle East War Drums
Update #8



warns Bill Salus…

The following headlines from the past week should be a Wakeup Call that many wars which have been prophesied for Israel are about to be fulfilled! …

Attack Now – Russian Interference Leaves Israel No Choice
(Jeremiah 49)

The Obama Doctrine – scorn your friends, reward your enemies – has finally reaped the whirlwind, namely Russia and its pledge to provide Iran with an array of the most advanced “defensive” missiles on earth. This leaves Israel with no choice except to act BEFORE those missiles are deployed…It’s been explained that the S-300 Surface-to-Air Missile System would provide Iran with an impenetrable shield….Israel must attack to remove those nukes before it’s too late…There is no choice but to take action now…

Iran marks Army Day with cries of ‘Death to Israel, US’
(Jeremiah 49)
“If Israel makes a mistake,” the announcer on Iran television said during the broadcast, as heavy trucks carrying armored personnel carriers rolled past, “those in Tel Aviv and Haifa will not sleep at night, not one person.”…

Iran leader urges military to increase ‘preparedness’
(Jeremiah 49)

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged the country’s armed forces Sunday to increase their “defensive preparedness,” hitting out at a US warning of possible military action…

ISIS appears ready to announce expansion to Gaza
(Psalm 83, Zechariah 12, Obadiah 1)

ISIS supporters indicate the brutal jihadist organization is debating when to declare the Gaza Strip part of its expansive caliphate…Israel is so concerned about the prospect of ISIS rising in Gaza that the Jewish state has helped to step up the transport of civilian goods into the territory. Israel fears a shortage could provoke a discontented population to turn closer to ISIS, which has been trying to endear itself to Gazans with numerous Islamic charity initiatives…Any ISIS gains in Gaza would pose a major threat to both Israel and neighboring Egypt…

Israeli Officials: Iran Massively Ramping Up Arming of Hezbollah in Preparation for Major Assault on Israel
(Psalm 83 & Zechariah 12, Obadiah 1)
Over the last few weeks, Iran has considerably stepped up its operations to arm Hezbollah in order to prepare its terrorist proxy for a large-scale conflict with Israel…Tehran has accelerated its proxy war with Israel on all fronts…Iran has also been attempting to establish a new front for Hezbollah with Israel on the Golan Heights, linking it to the existing one in southern Lebanon…

Hamas accelerates its tunnel-building, using heavy machinery
(Psalm 83 & Zechariah 12, Obadiah 1)
Hamas is accelerating its tunnel offensive from Gaza into Israel , using specialized digging equipment to speed up the effort…the terror organization was making significant efforts to dig at great speed…

'Lebanon prepares to receive massive shipments of French weapons'
(Psalm 83 & Zechariah 12, Obadiah 1)

The Lebanese military is due to acquire some $3 billion worth of French military hardware and Saudi Arabia has subsidized the weapons purchase...

Thousands of Iraqis flee as Islamic State makes gains in Sunni heartland (Psalm 83 & Zechariah 12, Obadiah 1)
Thousands of families are fleeing Iraq’s western city of Ramadi after an Islamic State advance…U.S. and Iraqi officials have warned that the city is at risk of falling to the Islamic State…Such a large wave of displacement has never happened in the history of the city…

Putin warns Israel: Selling arms to Ukraine would provoke Russian S-300 sales to Syria too (Isaiah 17)

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s warning to Israel against selling arms to Kiev - in retaliation for the S-300 air-defense missiles Russia has released for Iran – adds a European dimension to the dispute by planting Israel squarely in the middle of Moscow’s Ukraine dispute with the United States, The Russian leader’s implied threat to hit back by sending the same missile system to Syria…Putin has repeatedly cautioned Washington that arming Kiev with US offensive weapons would bring forth matching Russian steps that would hurt US interests in Europe and other parts of the world…

Egypt’s dangerous stalemate (Isaiah 19)
Despite his all-out effort to defeat Islamic terrorism and insurgency, President Sisi has yet to achieve the results needed to prevent the country slipping back into anarchy and chaos…Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is fighting for his country’…Despite the army’s all-out effort to defeat Islamist insurgency in Sinai, there is no end in sight…In Yemen, Iranian-backed Houthi tribes are poised to take over the strategic Red Sea straits, threatening free passage to the Suez Canal…The fact is that the president has not been able to secure a large enough block to ensure his electoral victory, while the Muslim Brotherhood – though banned – and other Islamic parties can still muster a sizable vote…

Iranian ship convoy moves toward Yemen, alarming US officials
(Ezekiel 38, 39)
U.S. military officials are concerned that Iran's support for Houthi rebels in Yemen could spark a confrontation with Saudi Arabia and plunge the region into sectarian war…Iran is sending an armada of seven to nine ships — some with weapons — toward Yemen in a potential attempt to resupply the Shia Houthi rebels…Iran wants to force a confrontation with Saudi Arabia that it believes it will win, because Iran views the Saudi military as weak and suspects the U.S. lacks the willpower to support its Gulf ally…

Why is this prophetically important?  Prophetically the Russia/Iran alliance would benefit from control of this gateway to the Red Sea, when Ethiopia and Sudan also bordering the Red Sea, and all part of the Gog & Magog confederacy, come up against Israel, providing a close access point by sea.  The Red Sea gives access to the Port of Aqaba in southern Jordan.  Aqaba has been a major port since the Iron Age. The Bible refers to the area in (1 Kings 9:26): "King Solomon also built ships in Ezion-Geber, which is near Eloth in Edom (or Mount Seir, part of Jordan – see a Judgment on Mount Seir…Ezekiel 35), on the shores of the Red Sea," in which Eloth refers to a port on the grounds of Aqaba. The port of Aqaba was particularly important after the Ottomans built the Hejaz railway, that connects the port to Damascus and Medina.  This railway and Jordan Highway 65, from the Port of Aqaba pass extremely close to the Jordan River Basin and valley (head waters of the Dead Sea), between Jerusalem and Ammon Jordan, which is bound by the mountains of Gilead and Moab on the east and by those of Samaria and Judah on the west – this is the site of the Battle of Gog & Magog.  Iran’s potential control of the mouth of the Red Sea and picking up the armies of Ethiopia and Sudan along the way, would serve for a quick deployment access in mobilizing a war on Israel.  Russia with Turkey would come down from the North and Libya, Algeria and Tunisa attacking from the East likely coming in through the port of Tartus which is currently home to a Russian naval facility, or through a Turkish port and joining Turkey and Russia in the attack on Israel.

Putin Issues Warning to Israel Over Possible Sale of Weapons to Ukraine (Ezekiel 38,39)
Russian President Vladmir Putin warned Israel on Saturday that the government’s decision to sell weapons to Ukraine would be “counterproductive” and flame the fires of conflict. Israel’s move to supply weapons to Ukraine come in response to the Kremlin’s decision to supply Iran with the advanced S-300 surface-to-air missile system…According to Netanyahu, providing Iran with the S-300 missiles “will only encourage Iranian aggression in the region and further undermine the stability of the Middle East.”…

The clear indication from the articles above, is that war related activities and preparation is dramatically and quickly increasing by the sworn enemies of Israel, and they have Israel surrounded on all sides.  The Prophecies linked above are about to be fulfilled as a very dark Middle East War Storm is Coming!

My belief on how all of this may go down, based on the current activity and knowing what the Bible tells us concerning the end-time prophetic wars – it may now start with a triggering event, of the IDF attacking Iran.   This is not speculation, but an imminent fact based on the Prophet Jeremiah’s warning in Jeremiah 49: 34-39.  It would appear from many of the news stories above concerning Iran, it is readying their main Proxies, Hezbollah, Hamas and Syria, who they have armed to the teeth, and they are in strategic positions for a massive retaliatory strike on Israel.  Israel striking Iran will cause an immediate reaction and domino effect – Hezbollah (Lebanon) and Syria will strike Israel from the North – Israel destroys Syria (Isaiah 17) and destroys Hezbollah as well as others in the Psalm 83 Confederacy such as Hamas and the Palestinian Authority in Gaza and the West Bank (east and west of Israel).  As well, I believe IDS will destroy ISIS (in Iran, Syria and factions within every State surrounding Israel), and factions of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (attacking from the Sinai south of Israel) and in Turkey, all fulfilling the prophecies of Psalm 83, Zechariah 12 & Obadiah 1.  All of these, mixed with Iranian elite Revolutionary Guards, already in place in Syria, Lebanon and the borders of the Golan Heights, will be neutralized per the fulfillment of these prophecies.  The suggested sequence of this also may dictate that Israel may elect to conduct some level of preemptive strike on Hezbollah and Syria in particular to lessen their ability to retaliate for the Israeli IDF strike on Iran.  Syria likely still has enough firepower and capacity (most likely WMD’s they never gave up) to inflict a significant blow to Israel, for Israel in turn, to make it (and other Syrian cities) “a ruinous heap” which “will cease from being a city.”  This then likely unites the rest of the Psalm 83 confederacy to ban together and attack Israel…“For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You: The tents of Edom [Palestinians and S. Jordanians] and the Ishmaelites [Saudis]; Moab [Palestinians & central Jordanians] and the Hagrites [Egyptians]; Gebal [Hezbollah & N. Lebanese], Ammon [Palestinians & N. Jordanians], and Amalek [Arabs of Sinai]; Philistia [Hamas of Gaza] with the inhabitants of Tyre [Hezbollah an S. Lebanese]; Assyria [Syria & N. Iraqis] also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot [Moabites and Ammonites, thus the modern day Palestinians will be the principal power engaged in the confederacy against Israel. The others [ISIS] come to assist them].” ~ Psalm 83:5-8

This all results in the Deliverance of Israel “In that day the Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem” - Zechariah 12:8 ...and God’s purpose in all of these wars will be known and fulfilled for Israel “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.” ...” I will set My glory among the nations; all the nations shall see My judgment which I have executed, and My hand which I have laid on them. 22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward.” Ezekiel 38:23 & 39:21.

With this Prophesied and massive Israeli victory, there are strong initiations Israel will thereby increase its borders ( back to the borders of the Abrahamic Covenant in which God gave all of this land to Israel (Gen. 28:13-15; 35:11-12; and 48:3-4).   Israel will believe they are now able to live in peace, safety & security, without walls or gates.  At this point their will likely be a prophetic Gap of time - see   This actually Sets the stage and becomes the likely impetus for the next greater War, with Russia, who “makes an evil take plunder and to take booty” and leads the Ezekiel 38 & 39 War and its confederation (Russia and the former Soviet republics; Iran; Sudan; Ethiopia and Possibly Eritrea; Libya; Algeria and Tunisa; Turkey and possibly Germany and Austria) an outer ring of States, which is listed as all being different from the Psalm 83 (inner ring confederacy, which not one is listed with the Gog Magog confederation – as they are now within a Greater Israel).  It is not hard to see how all of this is likely going to play out – as we get closer to the day of the fulfillment of these prophecies…the light and lens of Scripture overlaying the headline news is making everything previously unknown (or hazy), 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!

A Proclamation against Egypt (Isaiah 19) and a Judgment on Mount Seir (southeastern Jordan - Ezekiel 35) also find fulfillment somewhere, likely within the same time period as the fulfillment of the prophecies of Psalm 83, Zechariah 12 & Obadiah 1.

The next event? ...Enter the Antichrist Daniel 9:27

“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 new 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

Be assured of the Biblically promised outcome: “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:3

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”  Zechariah 12:9

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper…” Isaiah 54:17a

The Bible (God’s Word) has prophesied all of this, so you can absolutely count on it all being fulfilled!

All things are becoming crystal clear in these end-times...Like Bill Salus is preaching, its OPERATION WAKEUP CALL - WAKE UP CHURCH!!...“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

"Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."  Luke 21:28

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

Large-scale Egyptian army massed for operation to capture eastern Libya from ISIS

Egypt is massing large-scale ground and air forces in the Western Desert along the Libyan border, in preparation for a military campaign to capture eastern Libya…For President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi, ISIS’s presence in eastern Libya (as well as Sinai) poses an unacceptable peril to his country. He has been warned in a number of intelligence reports that the Islamic State’s terrorists have already penetrated some Egyptian towns and even infiltrated certain army units. To counter the Egyptian plan of campaign, ISIS is rushing reinforcements to eastern Libya from Syria and Iraq…Egypt is already fighting the Islamic State’s branch in Sinai. It is now gearing up to tackle the Islamist peril on its western border…

Israel has struck several Hezbollah and Syrian targets in a series of air strikes near the Syrian and Lebanese border on Wednesday…A second airstrike is also believed to have been carried out on Friday, targeting trucks carrying surface-to-air missiles…The putative Israeli air strikes this week was aimed at thwarting Hizballah’s scheme to set up another war base in the Syrian-Lebanese mountains area….Eschatology Today reports: If you're like me you've been quietly and patiently waiting for the proverbial "other shoe" to drop in the Middle East. This shoe may have dropped overnight and may even be continuing at present according to multiple MidEast news sources from Lebanon to Qatar to Israeli media…
