Iran Entrenched in Syria

Prophecy Update: July 26, 2018

A secular news reporter was being interviewed on the Israeli Syrian border and she said something amazing, she said that Syria does not exist anymore. “Russia, Turkey, and Iran run the country formerly known as Syria.” She did not know the prophecy regarding those nations attacking Israel written over 2500 years ago. When the secular media reports about current events that are part of Biblical Prophecy, then you know something is up.

The last few weeks have painted a picture of what is happening to bring about the Gog-Magog prophecy. Promises have been made about moving the Iranian army away from Israeli territory. Those promises are a fantasy. The promise is made by the Russians and the Russians have no intention of helping Israel and the United States move Iran out of Syria. Yet, Vladimir Putin made the promise to both Netanyahu and Trump.
July 12th, New York Times: Netanyahu Says Putin Agreed to Restrain Iran in Syria
May 29th, Newsweek: RUSSIA MAY MOVE IRAN’S MILITANTS FROM ISRAEL’S BORDER IN UNPRECEDENTED DEAL ON SYRIA, REPORTS CLAIM
July 11th, Haaretz: Analysis: Netanyahu May Offer Putin: Remove Iran From Syria for Lifting of U.S. Sanctions on Russia
July 16th, Times of Israel: Putin says he and Trump agreed on securing Israel’s border with Syria. Here is one sentence from that article, “Trump, for his part, noted that “President Putin also is helping Israel.” He said that both leaders had spoken with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “and they would like to do certain things with Syria having to do with the safety of Israel… We absolutely would like to work in order to help Israel, and Israel will be working with us. So both countries work jointly [for this purpose].”

Now here is my problem, nothing that has been said between Putin and Netanyahu and Putin and Trump faces up to the real problem in the region. The real problem in the region is that Iran is at war with all of the Arab/Muslim states, and they desire to destroy Israel. Nothing Russia, the USA, or Israel agree to do is going to deter Iran from their goal of complete annihilation of Israel. To make matters worse, Iran is falling apart and a war with Israel would help heal their domestic problems.

Here is the game that Russia is playing. They claim that all foreign forces must leave Syria. That means that Israel must leave the Golan Heights, because according to International Law, the UN, and the Syrians, the Golan Heights is Syrian. The Iranians have been asked to leave southern Syria, they are not going to leave because Israel refuses to leave the Golan. Russia behind the scenes reinforces the Iranian and Syrian view that Israel is illegally occupying the Golan at the same time they say they are encouraging the Iranians to pull back and make a buffer zone between them and Israel. Iran has stated several times in the last few weeks that it is time to destroy Israel, they are just waiting for the order!

July 10th, Iranian Commander: “Islamic Army” in Syria Ready to Destroy Israel. In a recent speech, the deputy commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) boasted that the “Islamic army in Syria” in the Golan Heights was awaiting orders to eradicate the “evil regime” of Israel. In the speech for the anti-Israel al-Quds Day in June, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Hossein Salami said that the dangers Israel faces today are greater than at any time in history. “Today an international Islamic army has been formed in Syria, and the voices of the Muslims are heard near the Golan,” he said. “Orders are awaited, so that… the eradication of the evil regime [Israel] will land and the life of this regime will be ended for good. The life of the Zionist regime was never in danger as it is now.”

God is rocking Iran right now. Two strong earthquakes at 5.9 and 5.5 struck western Iran, two more over 6.0 happened earlier in 2018. Tens of thousands of people have protested in Iran the last few weeks. The currency of Iran has plunged, and according to the BBC, “The rial has fallen to a new low — 90,000 against the U.S. dollar on the country’s black market, Iranian media said, despite government efforts to control the currency rate. The official exchange rate is about 42,000 rials to the dollar.” The protestors even chanted ‘death to Palestine’ as they are mad at the regime about caring for the Palestinians more than their own citizens. As Sohrab Ahmari tweeted: “”Death to Palestine!” Not to Israel. Not to America. But to Palestine,” to which he added, “Hamas and Hezbollah and Palestinian Jihad can kiss their Iranian funding goodbye if the regime falls.” These tensions in Iran will lead to Iran launching a war with Israel.
President Trump pulling out of the Iran deal was a game changer and pushed us forward towards war. It was the right thing to do! The Iran deal was a deal with the world against Israel. America is backing Israel again the way we should after 8 years of cursing Israel. With America and Israel standing together as they are, this has forced the globalists hand. They do not want to see a strong America and even hate Israel more. For these reasons, I believe that Israel is on the verge of a big war and it will be on three fronts.

Gaza front is in the south and west of Israel, this war has already started and it is ongoing. Thank God that Israel has been pounding Gaza and the terrorist group Hamas, really giving them a bloody nose. Israel does not do that very often because the world cries out against Israel every time they defend themselves. They say that Israel uses too much force—whatever. Hamas needs to be destroyed and Israel is defending herself with some real force this time. Who supports Hamas? Iran.

Next up is the war in the north with Lebanon. This war has not started but Hezbollah is entrenched in Lebanon, they are a proxy of Iran, and they have 200,000 missiles aimed at Israel. All of the money that Barack Obama gave to the Iranians (150 billion) is being used to bolster their forces for the coming war with Israel. As Iran has built a continuous corridor of their influence and army from Iran to the Mediterranean Sea; they have not had anyone stop them and this has increased their confidence that they can beat Israel. It is false of course, but they are living in a fantasy. The Iranian tiger moved troops into Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Gaza, and beyond. The USA pulling out of the Iran deal has upset their plan, now they are desperate. Can you imagine President Obama saying what Trump said this week: his tweet to the Iranians said this: aldTrump
To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS! 11:24 PM – Jul 22, 2018

The third front will be on Golan Heights and from Syria. God said that Iran, Russia, Turkey, and several other nations will join in to destroy Israel. Turkey joined into the mix of hatred for the Jews. Erdogan of Turkey said this, ‘Spirit of Hitler’ apparent in ‘fascist’ Israel’s nation-state law. Israel passed a law protecting that Israel is a Jewish state and that made everyone go ballistic in the globalist capitals of the world. The UN, EU, everyone hated what Israel did. God wants to bring Israel back as Israel and as Jewish. It is sad that so many hate the Jews and hate the fact that Jesus is behind bringing the Jews back. The backlash in the USA is horrible, but our President stands up for this and for Israel. I hope more Christians will stand up for Israel! Netanyahu responded to Turkey: Netanyahu accuses Erdogan of ‘massacring Syrians and Kurds’ This week saw the ratcheting up of attacks from Iran into Israel.

IDF: Two surface-to-surface missiles fired at Israel
Missiles fired Monday morning from Syria were ballistic surface-to-surface missiles, investigation shows. On Thursday: 7/26 we have this:
Two rockets fired from Syria landed in the Sea of Galilee when the beaches and the water were full of tourists. The rockets were spillover from Syria’s long-running civil war, the Israel Defense Forces said. Israel is ready as the Iranians are ratcheting up the attacks.

Iran also made the threat to close the Strait of Hormuz. This water way is 30 miles wide and 30% of the world’s oil passes thru it every day.
“If Iran tries to close this strait crucial to the oil trade, the US Navy can unblock it quickly — Admiral Stavridis. While most military planners acknowledge that Iran could temporarily close the straits which serve as a waterway for an estimated 30 percent of the world’s oil supply, most also agree the U.S. Navy is capable of unblocking the strait.”
Its Thursday the 26th of July and I think if I wait another day I will have to add ten pages to this update. I believe that we are living in the last days and it is very exciting to pray and watch for the Lords return. Jesus told us to watch and pray, to be ready, to look for the signs of His coming. No one knows the hour or day, but we certainly have been taught by the Lord that we could know the season! I have not talked a lot about the pastor held in Turkey, but I am happy that he has been released from jail, but is under house arrest. This is a challenge from the god of Erdogan from Turkey against our God. I think I know who is going to win. Please pray for this pastor.
US Christian Pastor Freed From Turkish Prison
Christian Headlines • July 25, 2018
North Carolina pastor, Andrew Brunson, has been released from prison in Turkey, following his recent hearing. He is currently under house arrest in the country. He was accused of having connections to a terrorist organization that attempted a coup against the Turkish government in July of 2016.

European Problems

Prophecy Update: July 20, 2018

Jesus said that the end times would be a time when ‘nation would rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.’ (Luke 21:10) The last 20 years we have seen this played out with the Islamic invasion of Europe. The desire of the Islamists is to conquer Europe and the USA through “Civilization Jihad” and they have been successful so far. Pastor Erwin Lutzer wrote a book about this phenomenon in the USA called the ‘Cross in the shadow of the Crescent.’ The threat to America is real and we see it playing out in Europe. My update is going to focus on this battle for truth against all of the lies of the evil one.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy provided testimony to the House Subcommittee on National Security regarding the Muslim Brotherhood’s Global Threat on Wednesday, July 11, 2018. He said, “the primary global cancer cells for the development of Al Qaida, Islamic Jihad, and all of the offshoots, the primary source of training ground is the Muslim Brotherhood.” The model of the Muslim Brotherhood is violent Jihad, they cry peace and promote war. You cannot moderate groups like this. We could not moderate communism and we cannot moderate Islam. Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy said this week, “Congratulations to Rep. Ron DeSantis and others who took on the Muslim Brotherhood yesterday in a hearing on Capitol Hill. They established that it’s a foreign terrorist organization and will be officially designated as such by the U.S. government. The only question is how soon and how comprehensively.” President Obama depended on the Muslim Brotherhood for his Muslim outreach!
For at least 10 years I have been following the Islamic influence on our government and specifically the Muslim Brotherhood. The term that comes from the Brotherhood is “Sharia-Supremacism” and means that the traditional doctrine of authoritative Islam becomes prominent in the USA. This form of Islam is a totalitarian legal system meant to dominate others. The Brotherhood means to force this view on the USA. It is sedition and meant to take the place of our constitution.
In Europe it has become a nightmare. It is called ‘Refujihad: Hijra, which means migration to colonize and invade a country.’ The Brotherhood has been using this method of ‘civilization Jihad’ for many years and in Europe it is working. Demographic Jihad is the term they use to encourage their people to outbreed non-Muslims. According to them, this pre-violent civilization Jihad is “stealthy, patient, seditious, and is to be pursued when violence is impracticable.”
In 1991, the Brotherhood published their plans for destroying the USA, they use civilization jihad, claim that anyone against Islam is a bigot and anti-Muslim to shut them up, then they move to establish Sharia law. We see this in Europe, we are only a few years behind the nightmare in Europe. The push back has started in Europe by people who see what is happening and they are resisting. For instance, Austria has acted against Islam by shutting down seven Sharia supremacist Turkish and Arab Mosques, expelled 60 Jihadi Imams, dissolved an Islamist front group, and banned foreign funding of religious office holders. The Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said on June 8, “Parallel societies, political Islam and radicalization have no place in our country.”
The Brexit vote was a vote against the Red-Green alliance that dominates the European Union. “The ‘red-green alliance’ between far-left and Muslim parties is linked by shared anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism.” This movement is strong in the Democratic Party and dominates the Labor party in England. The last few weeks, the Islamists think that they have beat Trump and the Brexit supporters because they believe that the Labor party is about to take over Britain. Here is why:
“The resignation of Priti Patel from the British Cabinet after leaks that she had secretly met with Israeli officials to discuss aid to Syrian refugees has thrown the government of Theresa May into even greater upheaval. Already reeling after electoral failures earlier this year and unsuccessful Brexit negotiations, there is now the possibility that May’s government could fall. This prospect once again brings into focus demographic and electoral trends in Britain and across Europe. Earlier in 2017, the alliance between the far left and Muslim voters was not sufficient to bring a Communist anti-Semite, Jeremy Corbyn, to power as prime minister under the banner of Labour, but it might pull it off next time. In Europe, the problem is compounded by the presence of Muslim political parties that are reshaping national politics. That Corbyn, a vocal admirer of the IRA, Hamas, and Hezbollah and guest on Iranian television, is a credible politician at all says something about a sizeable portion of the British population. For British Jews especially, the message is ominous.”
The scriptures give us guidance on how to deal with invasion. God has been very clear in the scriptures that a nation has national boundaries and a common language and culture. God demanded that Israel protect her borders, sometimes through war and sometimes through deportation. The most important way to protect your borders is to assimilate aliens who come to live among us. The Red-Green alliance in the USA wants open borders so that they can destroy the USA.
Acts 17:26 says, “and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.” Notice first that it is God who makes nations with borders. Next, Numbers 15:16 points out, ‘There is to be one law and one ordinance for you and for the alien who sojourns with you.’” Israel was not to pervert the law by having two laws. This defines the USA today, we have perverted the law by having one law for the citizens of the USA and one law for illegal aliens. Sanctuary Cities are a perversion of law. One law would bring justice. What should that law be? Ruth defines for us what should be the attitude of the alien, Ruth1:16 ‘Your God shall be my God and your people shall be my people.’ This is assimilation. The push for open borders is a tool of our enemies! People who wish to live among us need to come legally and they need to assimilate to submit to our God mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. Without this, we will have civil disobedience and conflict.
Europe sees a backlash against this immigration of illegals. Hungary rebelled last year. “Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government demonstrated Budapest’s frustration with proposals to spread asylum seekers around the continent by refusing to take any more migrants sent there under EU regulations.” Hungary also recognizes that George Soros, the leftist communist pushes organizations towards a one world government. In order to stop his influence in Hungary they passed the ‘Stop Soros’ law banning help for migrants. Anyone “facilitating illegal immigration” will face a year in jail. Italy, Poland, and Austria have also enacted laws defying the European Union push for the Red Green alliance and Muslim takeover of Europe.
Let me ask you some important questions: Why are the refugees from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan not going to other Muslim nations? Why do the refugees have to go to Europe and not Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Kazakhstan, or other Muslim nations? Why does the European Union spend more time on fostering illegal immigration and not stopping Muslim wars in the Middle East? Why are the 215 million persecuted Christians around the world, being prevented from immigrating while Muslims are granted special status?
This is very important because the Muslim desire to take over the world has not abated. Europe is fighting back and it looks like the prophecy of Jesus is coming true in Europe. The elite deep state of the European Union are trying to force everyone to adopt their one world government view and they are frustrated by all who are standing up to them. George Soros said that “the election of Donald Trump is the biggest accident of the New World Order.”
Imagine this scenario with me: The New World Order power brokers are still fostering anarchy in Africa and the Middle East to transform Europe and the USA. (700,000 Africans are heading to Europe as I write this) They want to destroy Christian Europe and Christian America. As they are successful, Europe is crying for a Savior. They rejected Jesus as the Savior and they are looking for one. Who do you think George Soros will offer to them? That is right, the new world order wants to present their god, the Anti-Christ! All of the violations of biblical nationalism are attempts to reestablish the tower of Babel. Trump and Putin have vowed to destroy the New World Order. Each has a different reason. Trump has committed many sins agasint the New World Order but Russia is not one—Israel is the biggest sin against George Soros and his friends.
I will end with this, Nikki Haley gave a speech at the Heritage foundation about the USA leaving the UN Human Rights Council, it is because we defend Israel and they don’t. God bless the USA for blessing Israel! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Russia, Israel and NATO!

Prophecy Update: July 12th 2018

In the last three years, Russia’s intervention in Syria has been a cause of concern for many in the United States. The inability of the US to intervene in Syria caused a vacuum of power that Russia was only too happy to fill. The result was the intervention of Russia in the Syrian civil war. The Russians came in on the side of the Syrian President Bashir Assad. Iran, China, and most Shiite groups support the Assad regime. In 2016 the British paper the Independent had this headline: Oct.17, 2016:
US and Russia could ‘start Third World War over Syria conflict’, says Turkey
‘If this proxy war continues, let me be clear, America and Russia will come to a point of war’

They called it a proxy war and most of it has been a proxy war except for one cold hard truth: Russian forces are fighting in Syria on the border with Israel. In the last two years Russian troops have not only supported Syrian troops but have also assisted and fought alongside with Iranian troops! This is why I am very skeptical of the meeting going on in Russia between Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and Vladimir Putin of Russia. This is the ninth time that they have met in three years.

Ezekiel 38 says, vs.8 “After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them.” We learn from this verse that God is going to call Russia someday to the mountains of Israel to fight against Israel. Russia entered Syria in Sept.2015. This is the date that God began the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38:8. Yet, Israel meets with Putin and they think he is an ally. Netanyahu said he “very much appreciates the excellent direct contact I have with President Putin. It is very important to Israel’s national security.” Netanyahu is expected to stress Israel’s continued opposition to any Iranian presence in Syria. While that is Israel’s public position, the talks are expected to concentrate on ensuring that Iranian forces, Hezbollah or Shia militia forces do not penetrate into southern Syria along with Syrian Resident Bashar Assad’s forces.’

So you see my problem: for eight of the meetings that Israel had with Russia, nothing has stopped Iran from setting up shop on the mountains of Israel in the Golan Heights. Has God already put it on the mind of Putin to attack Israel? Putin has done nothing of any significance to stop Iran from fighting in southern Syria, and attacking Israel. In fact, Iran attacked Israel today (Wed.7/11/2018) sending a drone into Israel which Israel blew up. The last week, Russia has conducted air strikes in southern Syria with the help of the Iranians. The Iranians are now dressing in the Syrian army fatigues so that Israel cannot distinguish between Iranian troops and Syrian troops. Do you think Russia is going to help stop that? Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, Iran is one of the key players in the region and it would be absolutely unrealistic to expect it to abandon its interests.” One of its highest interests are to destroy Israel! Ezekiel goes on to say:

“Therefore prophesy, son of man, and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “On that day when My people Israel are living securely, will you not know it? You will come from your place out of the remote parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great assembly and a mighty army.” Ezekiel 38:14-15

As Israel and Russia meet in Moscow, will Netanyahu point out the obvious that Russia has done nothing to stop Iran from moving into the Golan area and attacking Israel? Does not Russia know that Israel is living securely? Do not the Arab/Muslim states complain all of the time that Israel is too powerful and use disproportionate force against her enemies? Israel was just listed as the 8th most powerful nation in the world by U.S. News and World Report. They studied 80 countries and Israel was pointed out to have success in pharmaceuticals, technology equipment, innovation, and diamonds.

Notice that at the time Israel is growing in power and strength, NATO is failing as a military alliance. For many years, Russia has been the focus of NATO cooperation, but when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, what purpose was there for NATO? That has been the source of much debate over the last 27 years and many in America have pointed out that NATO has become obsolete. From a speech in 2011, listen to this:
“In one of his last major addresses, then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates, a Republican who served the administrations of both Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, warned of a “dim, if not dismal future” of “military irrelevance” for NATO if Europeans didn’t invest more. Under NATO bylaws, members are supposed to spend 2 percent of their GDP on defense. Apart from the U.S., only four of the 27 other member countries do.

“The blunt reality,” Gates said in the 2011 speech in Brussels, “is that there will be dwindling appetite and patience in the U.S. Congress — and in the American body politic writ large — to expend increasingly precious funds on behalf of nations that are apparently unwilling to devote the necessary resources or make the necessary changes to be serious and capable partners in their own defense.”

This argument has been around for awhile, President Trump is stating the obvious when he questions the reason for NATO. His argument against the socialist states of Europe not paying what they promised is an old criticism. Europe has always depended on Americans for their defense and Trump pointing it out does not make him the enemy. It is the reality; if Russia attacked Europe, Germany and France are not coming to the aid of anyone, period! They want America to do it. European pacifism encourages Russian aggression. We have been warned and many are not listening. In 2017, General Sir Richard Shirreff, former head of NATO wrote a book about a war with Russia in 2018. Much of the book was about Kalingrad being the center of the war. Consider this headline today:

New Satellite Images Show Russia is Secretly Preparing for War www.neonnettle.com/news/ © Neon Nettle. “Several reports have detailed a disturbing new trend of Moscow’s rapid modernization efforts to improve its westernmost military facilities in Kaliningrad ahead of the summit. The area is a strategic enclave of Russian territory located between Poland and the Baltics.”
The book I read last year was described like this in the press:
Former Nato commander’s new book predicts invasion of Baltic as Putin bids to ‘make Russia a great power again’ 2017 War with Russia, by General Sir Richard Shirreff, paints a disturbing picture of potential nuclear conflict taking place next year (2018). Russia has been preparing for war in very open and clear ways. Problem is that Europe is not preparing but appeasing. Moscow ordered millions of people to practice going into bomb shelters. When have we done that in America? Do we even have bomb shelters anymore?

When Nato was started it had two purposes, to counteract a strong Germany because they started two world wars and to oppose the Soviet Union. The reason NATO was formed was because the UN had no power to stop the USSR. Germany was divided into West Germany and East Germany, so it was in the interest of West Germany to stand with America. Today, that is not the case. After the Soviet Union fell, NATO expanded into East Europe. Russia has said that this was a provocation because NATO wanted to overthrow Russia. The Gaurdian reported: In April 2009, Mikhail Gorbachev expressed his outrage at the way Russia had been hoodwinked by the west in the years following German unification in 1990. After all, he told the German tabloid Bild, the western powers had pledged that “Nato would not move a centimetre to the east”. The failure to honour this commitment had poisoned Russia’s post-cold war relations with the west. “They probably rubbed their hands, rejoicing at having played a trick on the Russians,” he said. The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, agrees. At the Munich security conference in 2007, he pointed to the threat posed by Nato’s expansion and asked: “What happened to the assurances our western partners made after the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact?” In March 2014 he repeated the accusation that “they [the west] have lied to us many times, made decisions behind our backs … This has happened with Nato’s expansion to the east.”

Russia is bitter against the West and they sense the weakness. NATO cannot win a war against Russia because it is divided and weak. Turkey has turned to be an enemy of the USA and Israel and they are the largest army in NATO. I do not see the Turks fighting Russia anytime soon do you? I do see Turkey joining Russia when they attack Israel. That is biblical prophecy and it perfectly pictures the day in which we live. This is why the NATO meeting and Israel Russia meeting this week are so important.
In a spate of interviews ahead of the summit, NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchinson enumerated the many ways that Russia threatens Europe and U.S. interests. But while the threats she mentioned – political subversion through social media, nerve agent attacks in Great Britain, support for Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, violations of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) treaty, and annexation of Crimea – are all major threats, they are not the main threats that the U.S. faces today. Moreover, NATO has been ineffective in confronting these malign actions by Russia. Russia is growing in its brazenness and it will attack Israel in the near future—God said it 2500 years ago. Caroline Glick said this week: As for President Trump, despite the bloviations of his critics, he bears no responsibility for NATO’s irrelevance. Trump did not cause NATO to have little role to play in fighting the key threats to American and global security. NATO has had nearly three decades to figure out how to do that. But it failed.
