I want to thank everyone for their prayers. I may find out the result of all my tests on Thursday. I will report them as soon as I know. Still continue to pray for me, because Thursday is the important day for me.
The armada of ships sitting outside the Persian Gulf is not for Iran, but for Israel. The world is massing their armies to keep Israel from attacking Iran. God said the armies of the world will surround Jerusalem in the end of days. We are not at that point in history, but you can see the slow march toward Jerusalem as God prepares the world for the Day of Judgment. I suspect this may keep Israel from attacking Iran, but it emboldens the Iranians and their allies to wipe Israel off the globe. There are reputable reports Iranian soldiers are in Syria, and we know the Russians have sent soldiers and supplies in also, albeit few. This is not about Syria, but Israel. The rebels and the Syrian government may be at odds now, but they will join forces to attack and try to overcome Israel. We know from Scripture God will save Israel in the end of days.
God says He will protect Israel and Damascus will be destroyed in Isaiah 17. The prophecy could very well be close at hand. Ezekiel 38/39 also speaks about an alliance that will attack Israel in the last days. Some, including myself, have wondered how the Libyans (Ancient Put) and the Sudanese (Ancient Cush) would join, but we know from the last few days how a small country like Libya can take world events to a new level. The nations are groaning and so is creation. The Creator is readying His forces in Heaven, and Lucifer is readying his on earth.
The Antichrist is close to come upon the scene, and one day he will after a seven year covenant is confirmed. The Antichrist will be revealed and 3 ½ years will be left before Christ will come. The Rapture will happen shortly after the Antichrist is revealed for the Day of the Lord does not start until right before Christ comes back. Friends, the world is at a tipping point, and it won't take much for the Glory of God to be shown any day now.
Job 11: 17-19
"Your [a]life would be [b]brighter than noonday;
Darkness would be like the morning.
18 "Then you would trust, because there is hope;
And you would look around and rest securely.
19 "You would lie down and none would disturb you,
And many would entreat your [c]favor."
Iran launched a submarine and a destroyer into the Gulf from Bandar Abbas port on Tuesday at the same time as US and allied navies held exercises in the same waters to practice keeping oil shipping lanes open.
Tehran has repeatedly threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, a route for oil exports from the Gulf, if Iranian nuclear sites are attacked by Israel, which believes Tehran is trying to develop an atomic bomb.

Without a negotiated solution over the Iranian nuclear program, 2013 will likely see a military confrontation with Iran, former US Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk said on CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday.
"There is still time, perhaps six months, even by Prime Minister Netanyahu's own time table to try to see if a negotiated solution can be worked out," Indyk said on the morning news show. "I'm pessimistic about that. If that doesn't work out -- and we need to make every effort, exhaust every chance that it does work -- then I am afraid that 2013 is going to be a year in which we're going to have a military confrontation with Iran."
