Iran is test firing missiles that can reach Israel, the United States is bolstering its military in the Persian Gulf, and regional militaries are on standby for any hostilities for the closing of the Straights of Hormuz by Iran. We must look at events not through our eyes, but as much as we can through the eyes of God.
God tells us in the end of days an alliance of Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya, North Sudan and some other minor allies will attack Israel as the West, Saudi Arabia, and probably Jordan will stand by while God only comes to Israel's defense. As the world's economies are teetering on disaster the West and its allies will not defend Israel for fear of economic reprisals from any war. Whatever may happen in the days and months ahead, if prophecy is going to fulfill soon, remember how the alliance will set up. I do not know when the Gog/Magog war will happen within God's plan, but I know it will. Everything will come together, and the wound the EU will take and be healed, the Gog/Magog War, the abomination of desolation by the Antichrist, the apostasy of the church, and the collapse of morality will all come together as the good Word states.
I am not of the strong opinion Israel will attack Iran, but if they do, then the alliance above must attack or retaliate. Israel is a nation living at peace in essence because they are not at war. It is a land of unwalled villages because we do not build walls around our towns anymore, and when Gog/Magog happens, it will set off a spiritual revival not only in Israel but in many parts of the world. I believe Gog is actually a demon that has been placed in the Russian sphere for thousands of years. Just as the demonic influence in Persia tried to keep the angel from reaching Daniel, which the demon was named Prince of Persia, I believe the Russian demon will bring the forces into the holy land in God's timing.
The EU's crisis is the crisis before the wound, the Iranian military exercises is just another step toward Magog's war, Damascus is preparing itself for Isaiah's destruction, the church is in the last days apostasy, and the true church is spreading the Gospel of the Kingdom in the four corners. My friends, whether we want to admit it or not, Jesus is coming, and the signs are there. If you need to know Jesus please ask Him into your heart. What do you have to lose? Time will tell, but I can already smell the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The Lord's stove has that heavenly chocolate ready to be passed out, doesn't it? A little fun, but in reality, it is closer than a lot of us realize.
Ezekiel 39: 1-8
"And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog and say, ?Thus says the Lord [a]God, "Behold, I am against you, O Gog, [b]prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal; 2 and I will turn you around, drive you on, take you up from the remotest parts of the north and bring you against the mountains of Israel. 3 I will strike your bow from your left hand and dash down your arrows from your right hand. 4 You will fall on the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you as food to every [c]kind of predatory bird and beast of the field. 5 You will fall on the [d]open field; for it is I who have spoken," declares the Lord God. 6 "And I will send fire upon Magog and those who inhabit the coastlands in safety (United States?Bro. Brian's opinion); and they will know that I am the Lord.
7 "My holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. 8 Behold, it is coming and it shall be done," declares the Lord God. "That is the day of which I have spoken.
The U.S. has discreetly moved considerable military reinforcements into the Persian Gulf to deter the Iranian military from any possible attempt to shut down the Strait of Hormuz, The New York Times reported on Tuesday. The reinforcements also increase the number of fighter jets capable of striking deep into Iran if the standoff over its nuclear program escalates.
The deployments, according to the Times, are part of a long-planned effort by the U.S. to bolster its military presence in region, in part to reassure Israel that when confronting Iran, as one senior administration official put it last week, "When the president says there are other options on the table beyond negotiations, he means it."
The military build-up, however, which comes on the heels of increasing economic pressure on Iran, carries significant risks, including provoking Iran's Revolutionary Guard to lash out against the greater U.S. military presence.
