The war of words over the past week and weeks between the US and Iran moved up a notch in a very, very big way. And, I originally thought that this was just rhetoric, until I realized that the cause was a little-reported incident in the Red Sea that happened on Wednesday.
The Iran-backed Houthi rebels attempted – and almost succeeded – to sink two Saudi oil tankers. And, it appears that Saudi Arabia might have very quietly activated an agreement with the US, to protect Saudi Arabia from Iran.
The world is preparing for war. Some hope to stay out of it. Some push for it. Some fear losing it. And, you can tell that it’s coming because of what the players are doing to move into what they think is the best position for winning this war.
The fear in everyone’s heart is that this will be a World War that will engulf the globe. And, that’s a valid fear, since the great powers are the ones doing the maneuvering.
Unfortunately, the focus is – and will be – Israel.
She didn’t start out as ‘the focus’. She certainly doesn’t want to be the focus. But, she’ll be the focus. And, the world will be shaken by what happens.
The decision by Donald Trump to launch missiles at symbolic targets in Syria, is a bad sign. A very bad sign. It’s a sign that the Deep State operating within Washington D.C. has been able to maneuver President Trump into doing what it wants. And, it also means that the American Empire still seeks the complete destruction of Russia.
Russia sees this and has communicated a willingness to make America pay a heavy price for this. And, Russia has already demonstrated – many times – a willingness and ability to take draconian steps to ensure her security.
This will not end well for the West.
And, it leads directly to Gog and Magog and Ezekiel’s Fire.
Very little in our world seems to make sense. It’s as if the people around us are living in an alternate reality, vastly different from the one that you and I live in. And, it is that insanity that will destroy the world.
Worse, the insanity is so great, so broad and so deep, that pointing it out to those who suffer from it, will get you nowhere. They are caught in the grip of madness, and we would do well to stay as far from its grasp as possible.
If you think that you aren’t vulnerable, think again.
I saw evidence of three great catastrophes this week, and they should start alarm bells ringing in all of our minds:
Hezbollah and Iran Challenging Israel
Hard Hearts in Our Churches
The last one is the most important, but you’ll understand the first one better. And for the second… you won’t understand the significance, unless you’ve read Ezekiel’s Fire. And, you need to read Ezekiel’s Fire.
I’m going to give an overview of the importance of those three catastrophes. And, I hope that you’ll pay attention to them. They won’t be fixed, but they can be avoided.
I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.
Please treat these seriously.
My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.
Donald Trump just did the one thing that I did not expect him to do:
Recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel
He promised to do that during his campaign, and he delivered on that promise. And, I’m not used to American Presidents doing that – especially, when it comes to Jerusalem.
The side-effect of this event, will be a heating up of conflict in the Middle East and an acceleration of The Last Days. I believe that this is a very big deal, and I suspect that you will agree, when you see the evidence that I see.
We spend a lot of time thinking about The Big Event – The Great Tribulation, Gog and Magog, Global Thermonuclear War, etc. What we often fail to realize is that there are a host of events that happen between now and then, events that bring the world to the point of the destruction foretold by the prophets in the Bible.
I know this failure to realize all too well. I am routinely appalled by my inability to see what is right in front of my eyes. But, God is good, and He always brings someone along to show me what I’ve missed. And, I pass this hard-earned wisdom on to you.
Damascus is going to fall, and it will be horrifying.
Monday marks yet another day of remembrance for those who fell in service to the United States. My family has fought and died in every war that America has fought. We bled on every battlefield from the Revolutionary War, to the wars now being fought by the US in the Middle East and Afghanistan.
Unfortunately, the government of the United States has betrayed that sacrifice. Our government dances on the graves of our fallen, and when we salute the flag on Memorial Day, this Monday… we salute the symbol for pornography, heroin, tyranny, abortion and the lowest forms of stupidity that I have had the misfortune to read about.
