Three U.S. soldiers were killed yesterday in Jordan, while more than 40 other service members were injured following an uncrewed aerial attack at a military base in Jordan near the Syrian border.
3 US Soldiers Killed in Jordan
Drone Strike Linked to Iran

2 Chron. 17:10
Just weeks after Israel invaded Gaza in response to Hamas’s deadly attack on Oct. 7, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei convened a meeting of militia leaders across an alliance Tehran calls ‘the axis of resistance.’
Iran has been attacking Israel and the United States for years, not directly but through their Islamic terror proxies like the Houthi’s in Yemen, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad in Gaza and the West Bank.
Tehran supplies the military training through their IRGC, and provides the rockets and missiles. In their excitement to do evil, the Prince of Persia may have crossed the line this time and killed 3 US soldiers. So it’s now up to Biden to respond!
“The ram which you saw having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.”
If Trump or any other Republican was in the White House, the response to Iran would likely have happened already. Biden may try something substantial, as he wants very much to look strong in an election year.
FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: The attack, which Khamenei had publicly praised as an “epic victory,” marked a crescendo of four decades of Iranian efforts to train and arm a network of nonstate militant groups as a way to threaten its enemies and extend its influence in the Middle East.
But behind closed doors, the Iranian leader told senior Hamas representatives, along with Lebanese, Iraqi, Yemeni and other Palestinian militia leaders, that Tehran had no intention of directly entering the conflict and widening the war, according to two high-ranking officials from Hamas and two from Hezbollah. Side battles, he told the delegates, risked distracting the world from Israel’s devastating incursions in Gaza.
Now the axis faces a moment of truth. As Iran’s allies stoke even more fires across the region—from attacks on shipping in the Red Sea, and now on our troops in Jordan—they are pushing the US to the brink of a direct conflict.
U.S. officials blamed Sunday’s drone strike on an Iran-backed group, and the White House on Monday said it believed the perpetrators were supported by Kataib Hezbollah, an Iranian militia ally based in Iraq, with forces in Syria. President Biden said he was weighing how to retaliate.
Let’s pray for America and for our leaders to make the right decisions.

Red Heifers Trigger Genocide

And the dread of the LORD fell upon all the kingdoms of the lands that surrounded Judah.
2 Chron. 17:10
I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling.
Abu Obeida, the military leader and spokesman for the Palestinian Hamas terrorist organization, made a televised appearance on the 100th day of the Israeli war in Gaza. The televised speech was the first time he had appeared in seven weeks as, during that time, all of his public statements were either audio recordings or written statements. A lapse of several weeks even led to speculations that he had been killed.
The Palestine Chronicle reported his speech, and listed the motives he gave for the Hamas attack on Israel:
“We look back 100 days to remember the powers of aggression that reached its peak against our path and Al-Aqsa (Temple Mount), with the bringing in of the red cows as an application of a detestable religious myth designed for aggression against the feelings of an entire nation in the heart of its Arab identity, and the path of its prophet (the Night Journey) and Ascension to heaven.”
In his speech, he referred to the October 7 attack as ” the Al Aqsa flood,” a term we’re hearing more and more. While “Al Aqsa” has historically only been used for the mosque at the south end of the Temple Mount, in recent years, as we get closer to the Tribulation, there’s been a shift in Islam to now claim the entire 37 acre Temple Mount is “Al Aqsa.”
The tactic has caught on and spread which is designed to garner broader support for Islamic control of the whole Temple Mount acting as it it was always their “holy ground’ of which Israel has no right. The term “Ay Aqsa” literally means “the further mosque”, referring to a myth created by the Umayyad Caliphate leader Omar in 682 CE, 50 years after Muhammad’s death.
According to the myth, Muhammad was carried to the site of the destroyed Jewish Temples in a miraculous overnight journey by al-Buraq, a magical horse with the head of a woman, wings of an eagle, the tail of a peacock, and hoofs reaching to the horizon. He tethered the horse to the Western Wall of the Temple Mount and from there ascended to the seventh heaven together with the angel Gabriel.
Abu Obeida continued:
“We will not tire or falter in calling all the free people of the nation to rise to support their Aqsa and the path of their prophet, which the criminal Zionists are practically advancing towards destroying and establishing their temple. This is why we have shed our blood in Gaza for 100 days and for which the epic of October 7th was about.”
In his speech, he frequently calls on “every Muslim on the face of the earth” to join the war.
Arab-language media covered Abu Abeida’s speech extensively, focusing on the red heifer while noting that five red female calves were brought to Israel in September 2022. After the announcement of the arrival of the cows, Hamas reacted almost immediately, warning that the potential Jewish ritual of the red heifers posed a threat to Al Aqsa and they have been preparing to respond ever since.
The red heifer is the main component in the Biblically mandated process for ritual purification of the priesthood to begin service in the temple. The purification ceremony has been lacking since the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD, leaving all Jews today considered ritually impure, thereby preventing the return of the Temple service.
Prophetic Anticipation Builds: Red Heifer Ceremony Soon
According to those working on the red heifer project, the ceremony of the red heifer needs to be performed on the Mount of Olives, and in a place that would have looked directly into where the Temple stood. A plot of land for this purpose, directly east of the Temple Mount, was purchased 12 years ago and meets both of those standards.
The Temple Institute launched its Red Heifer program about a decade ago, but even in Temple times, an animal that fulfilled the Biblical requirements was exceedingly rare. Failing to produce a suitable candidate from ranchers in Israel, the Temple Institute in Jerusalem began investigating alternative sources for a red heifer and found it in Texas in 2020.
Their arrival in Israel was a spiritual earthquake! Ever since the 5 red heifers arrived in 2022, Israel’s enemies have been shaking in their boots and planning the massacre of the Jews that took place on Oct. 7.
But Hamas underestimated the power of the Most High God over the imposter god Allah. God’s Word cannot be thwarted and nothing will prevent Israel from building their long-awaited Temple on the Temple Mount in God’s timing.… if they only knew what was really coming!
The red heifer ceremony is scheduled to be performed by the Temple Institute and take place on the Mt. of Olives during Passover Holiday, the last week of April 2024.
It remains to be seen, under the current war atmosphere in the country, if Israel’s government will permit the long anticipated ceremony to take place. Is this the time? Is the war a prelude to the end? Are we as close to the Rapture as it appears to be from these developments? I sure hope so!

Working Against Israel

The United States, Egypt and Qatar are continuing to exert pressure on Israel and the Hamas terror group to accept a “phased diplomatic progress” that would result in the release of the Israeli hostages in return for an Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu already rejected Hamas’ main condition of an Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, and a Hamas spokesman said there was “no real progress.”
Nevertheless, the “willingness to discuss the framework was a positive step. Mediators are now working to bridge the gap,” a source told the WSJ.
White House Coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa Brett McGurk is set to travel to Egypt and Qatar to discuss the progress of the negotiations, Axios reported.
McGurk is expected to meet with Egypt’s Minister of Intelligence Abbas Kamel, one of the main negotiators, and with Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani in the Qatari capital Doha.
The proposed outline for the deal includes three stages over the span of 90 days.
In a first stage, Israel would release hundreds of convicted Palestinian terrorists from its prisons and withdraw from the Gaza Strip in exchange for the release of the remaining 136 hostages in the hands of Hamas.
Israel would also agree to end drone surveillance over Gaza and double the amount of aid going into the enclave.
The second phase of the deal would see the release of more terrorists from prison in exchange for the bodies of hostages and the female soldiers who were killed and have been held by terrorists in Gaza.
In the third and last phase, Israeli soldiers and men, those whom Hamas refers to as soldiers because they are of fighting age, would be released.
The plan largely corresponds to reports by Israel’s Channel 13 news last week. Netanyahu already responded that he rejected the condition of an Israeli withdrawal from Gaza outright.
The Egyptian negotiating team said it felt there could be some flexibility on the part of the Hamas leadership regarding certain details, but noted that it still “adheres to the principle of a total cessation of hostilities, which is a fundamental rule from which there is no retreat,” Israel’s KAN news outlet reported on Monday.
According to the WSJ, Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar believes Israel will eventually prioritize the release of the hostages over the IDF’s accomplishments on the battlefield and, therefore, wants to play for time to enable international pressure on Israel to continue to build.
The renewed hostage release negotiations are also said to ultimately aim at establishing a permanent ceasefire and eventually lead to the normalization of relations between Israel and Arab countries like Saudi Arabia with the ultimate goal of restarting the progress toward a two-state solution.
Middle East Heating Up
1/19/24 By Tim Buck
Pakistan’s air force launched retaliatory airstrikes early Thursday in Iran against alleged militant hideouts, killing at least nine people and further raising tensions between the neighbors.
The war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has barely past three months and we see Israel being tried in the International Criminal Court in the Hague for genocide against Hamas when it was Israel who experienced a genocidal attack.
Joe Biden’s Administration is telling the government of Israel that they cannot defeat Hamas. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week that Israel cannot defeat Hamas — that there is no “military solution,” and that Israel will have to “return the West Bank” and accept a Palestinian Two-State Solution. Netanyahu reportedly rejected the idea. Good for him!
Can you imagine if the United States had told Britain after only 100 days of war with Nazi Germany that they couldn’t win, and to accept Hitler’s terms of peace? First it would make you laugh, then grimace in disgust, and then get really mad.
That’s exactly what Joe Biden’s secretary of state Antony Blinken is reported to have told Benjamin Netanyahu about the Israel-Hamas War.
Wail, you gate! Howl, you city! Melt away, all you Philistines! A cloud of smoke comes from the north, and there is not a straggler in its ranks.
If I were Netanyahu, I would put blinders on and continue to pound Gaza until every last Hamas terrorist, including their leaders, were nothing but a bad memory. Because if they don’t, Hamas will come against them again, and again, and again.
The Bible clearly shows us the land of Israel will be divided into two states, but that does not mean they have to help their enemies to bring it about. But eventually, Israel will agree to divide the land.
It looks like 2024 is off to a war infused world with the likes of the missile strikes that the US and the UK have been conducting against the Houthi rebels in Yemen. Add to that, Iran launched missiles on Pakistan three days ago with Pakistan retaliating Thursday. Iran also staged airstrikes late Monday in Iraq and Syria over an Islamic State-claimed suicide bombing that killed over 90 people in early January.
If there was a bowl labeled ‘wars and rumors of wars’, it would be overflowing right now. But what the world doesn’t realize is that what they really should be concerned about is the cup of the Lord.
In the hand of the Lord is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs.
Pakistan’s military described using “killer drones, rockets, loitering munitions and standoff weapons” in the attack. Standoff weapons are missiles fired from aircraft at a distance — likely meaning Pakistan’s fighter jets didn’t enter Iranian airspace.
Everyday we see the cauldron of the Middle East preparing themselves to meet Antichrist, while proclaiming that our biggest problem is Climate Change when it is actually the pending judgment by Almighty God that is about to fall.
Getting It Right!
1/16/24 By Tim Buck
We’ve waited eight years to teach this important topic!
The vital teaching you’ll hear in the upcoming class pushes back on many of the most popular prophecy themes today. It’s an urgent call to stop listening to the wrong people about what to anticipate for the coming government of Antichrist.
A false message is being preached these days and unfortunately, that’s the only message being heard.
But what does the Bible really say about the makeup of Antichrist’s empire? Pull up a seat and listen closely as you ponder these issues!
1. Satan’s Kingdom
One of the major themes of Daniel and Revelation is how Satan has attempted to use seven successive, anti-Semitic empires to annihilate the chosen people in his attempt to overturn the plans of God.
What we find is that the empire-model Satan designed for this purpose was never a global empire. It was a kingdom that was large, but not worldwide. The strategy was for his kingdoms to dominate a geographical region big enough to control the Middle East and all the land of Israel, but not the whole earth.
The pattern of using regional empires, not global empires, will continue with the empire of Antichrist.
2. Hyperbolic Language
We learn in Daniel that global-like descriptions are used (hyperbole) to describe the size and extent of Satan’s empires. This tricky style language makes these Satanic empires appear to be world-wide empires when they are only regional empires in size.
The pattern of over-stating the size of Satan’s empires in Daniel continues in Revelation for the empire of Antichrist whose domain, like the previous empires, is limited, not worldwide.
3. Revived Empire
The popular notion that Antichrist and his coming empire will rise from Europe, in the form of a revived Roman Empire, is misleading and unfortunate as it has led millions of prophecy students away from Daniel and Revelation’s geographical path of a coming Middle Eastern Empire.
The result is a lack of clarity about what drives the evil nature of the coming empire and what exactly it will look like and a complete disregard for the Islamic nature of Antichrist’s empire which is like forcing a square peg in a round hole.
Only an understanding of the Islamic link to end-time prophecy will bring consistency to interpreting Daniel and Revelation. Without that connection, it’s pure guesswork which is why we see so much confusion on this crucial topic.
Contrary to what most Bible prophecy books, podcasters and teachers predict, the world is trending away from Globalism, not towards it.
5. COVID Conspiracy
A culture of conspiracy among prophecy teachers and books in contemporary America has mistakenly connected the COVID-19 nightmare as the “first-stage” in a supposed “Global Reset” toward building a coming one-world government . This notion is inaccurate and stems from a misidentification of Antichrist’s Islamic Empire, and assuming it to be a typical, western-style empire.
