Iran Planning Campaign of Violence

Iran Planning Campaign of Violence

Iran wants America out of the Middle East!

In our upcoming class on January 28, we’ll discuss Iran’s role in the end times and how recent events line up with prophecy and could be thrusting us toward the Tribulation.

If Iran is playing out Daniel 8, which describes them charging westward across the Middle East, brace for the worst. Things could get ugly, real quick!

US General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, made a statement about what was being seen in intelligence in the days before President’s Trump ordered the strike on General Soleimani’s motorcade. Gen. Milley said:

“We had clear, compelling, unambiguous intelligence to indicate Qassem Soleimani was planning, coordinating, and directing a significant campaign of violence against the United States in the coming days.”

There is enough in that statement to suggest that US Generals thought Iran was planning to attack US assets in a wave of assaults in an attempt to rid the US military from the region.

So what exactly were the “unambiguous” signs showing IRGC commanders planning a “significant campaign of violence” against the US, and soon, in the “coming days”?

This could only mean one of two things: either the attacks were (1) just more individual attacks on American assets and nothing more, or (2) the attack planning that was seen was a full scale, military assault on US assets and even possibly a major military campaign into Iraq to finish Iran’s takeover of Iraq.

If it was just more single attacks, the assassination of Soleimani has made the IRGC community cry out for vengeance.

If it was planning for a massive military campaign, the assassination of Soleimani has made the IRGC not only more resolute in getting rid of the US military from the region, but also more united with its Shia allies in other countries, and likely more focused in doing what they are planning to do.

It is very possible that President Trump’s assassination of Soleimani has accelerated end time events. This has been a theme of this President’s first term! So let me re-phrase that… the assassination of Soleimani has definitely accelerated end time events!

The President’s bold move to save American lives has caused the dominoes to fall one after the other in such a way that the events of Daniel 7 and 8 regarding Iran’s end time military campaign could be carried out exactly as recorded in the Word.

Iran Raises Red Flag

Iran Raises Red Flag

Red Flag of Doom and War Symbolizing Battle Ahead Raised To Top Of Holiest Mosque In Iran

For the first time In history the ‘Red Flag Of War’ has been hoisted over the holiest, tallest and most famous Jamkarān Mosque, located in Iran’s holiest city of Qom.

The flag was lifted in response to the killing of General Soleimani. The Iranian Shiite leadership feels it’s time for the appearance of the Mahdi, their messiah… Antichrist!

Tim Buck Jan. 7, 2020

In Iranian Shiite Islam, the red flag symbolizes there is a great battle on the horizon. But this isn’t just about any battle and this famous mosque isn’t just any mosque!

In Shiite theology, recent events in the Middle East are enough to spark their anticipated end time battle that will cause enough death and chaos to trigger the return of their Messiah known as The Mahdi.

The Jamkaran Mosque, located 4 miles SSE of Qom. Built for the Mahdi, Shiite Islam’s coming messiah, also referred to as the 12th Imam. Bible prophecy knows him as Antichrist.

Jamkaran Mosque
The Mosque of Antichrist

The Jamkaran Mosque is the center of Qom, Iran’s holiest city. It was built in AD 1003 by supposed order of the Mahdi himself, who is the twelfth imam of Shia Islam. The Twelver Shia Muslims of Iran are awaiting Mahdi’s appearance.

Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad often talked about getting ready for the Mahdi, and had claimed he himself was in communication with the Mahdi who is now in an “occultation,” i.e., is hidden away by Allah.

Who is “Al-Mahdi”? Those familiar with my teaching would recognize this as the Muslim name for the coming Antichrist.

Shiite Muslims believe that the leader of Islam must be someone from the bloodline of Muhammad. According to Shia theology, the Twelfth Imam was a young boy who was the twelfth generation bloodline from Muhammad. To prevent him from being killed, they believe Allah rescued him and supernaturally hid him away until the time of the end when he will reappear to lead Islam.

There is an important well on the grounds of this mosque. A Holy Well! It is the place where they believe the “Twelfth Imam” is located and protected by Allah to appear in the end times. The red flag was hoisted here to arouse the Mahdi!

This is no joking matter. To American’s, the whole concept may seem silly. But to the Iranian’s, who are deceived by the master deceiver, this may be the moment in history they’ve been longing for!

The danger of the Iranian regime is that their military doctrine is based solely on this deceptive Islamic theology. Muslim’s are deceived by Satan into thinking Antichrist is their savior, and they are trying to communicate with his spirit via the red flag to encourage his appearance.

Former president Ahmadinejad spoke of their “Twelver” beliefs that a major war was required to start chaos, and out of that chaos the Mahdi would emerge. Oddly, this is also what the Bible predicts.

What Could a Red Flag Mean?

Twelver Shias believe that war is necessary to bring about the Mahdi, their messiah (Antichrist). For the first time in the 1000-year history of the Jamkaran Mosque, the “mosque of the Antichrist” as I call it, the red flag was hoisted above the main dome.

The words “Those who want to avenge the blood of Hussein” are on the flag. Hussein was the third imam of Shia Islam who was killed unjustly. The Mahdi is to bring back justice, in their view.

The Shia Muslim leadership is declaring now is the time for Mahdi to come and finally undo the injustices, especially those committed by Israel, the “little Satan” and America, the “great Satan” and for the final, great war to begin.

The killing of Soleimani was the event to kick start all this. It appears that the militant Shias of Iran are now on the warpath. This could get ugly and dangerous and both Israel and the US are taking it serious.

All US citizens have been asked to leave Iraq immediately. US and Canadian embassies are warning their citizens of a possible attack on Israel.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem!

And pray for America

And President Trump!

President Trump Orders Pentagon to Take Out Iranian General Soleimani

President Trump Orders Pentagon to Take Out Iranian General Soleimani

PRESIDENT TRUMP ORDERS PENTAGON TO UNLEASH APACHE AIRSTRIKE TO KILL IRAN’S ELITE QUDS FORCE GENERAL QASSEM SOLEIMANI IN STUNNING PAYBACK FOR ATTACK ON US EMBASSY IN BAGHDAD

The Pentagon said the deadly strike on Soleimani and his cohorts “was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.”
The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Deputy Secretary for Hezbollah, the commander of Iran-backed militias in Iraq known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, or PMF.
The PMF media arm said the two were killed in an American airstrike that targeted their vehicles in a pre-dawn strike at the Baghdad the airport.

Talk about a difference, President Trump isn’t playing around not even a little bit. This administration is the polar opposite of how Barack Obama conducted business, allowing Iran to virtually walk all over us at every given opportunity.

For more on the Obama backstory to the mess in Iraq go HERE.

Mere days after pro-Iranian militia attacked the US Embassy in Baghdad, President Trump ordered a precision strike on the top Quds Force general, and now he’s dead.

The US Air Force strike on Thursday night leaves notorious Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani & the Deputy Secretary of Hezbollah in Lebanon dead.

Soleimani was responsible for the recruitment of countless terror proxies throughout the Middle East. This comes just days after Trump’s adamant threat to Iran for their organized raid on the US embassy in Baghdad.

On Thursday night, United States Air Force Apache helicopters carried out an airstrike on an enemy vehicle leaving the Baghdad International Airport.

Hours later, it was revealed that approximately six people were killed, including at least three Iranians, including the notorious commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani.

This news is unprecedented, and it doesn’t stop there. Additionally, the deputy secretary for Hezbollah in Lebanon, Nail Qassem, died.

This strike comes only days after President Trump vowed to respond strongly to the Iranian-orchestrated raid on the US embassy in Baghdad, Iraq. In his tweet the day of the raid, Trump stated that what he vowed was not a warning, but a threat.

The implications of this strike cannot be overstated. When you account for the devastating economic sanctions the US has implemented on Iran and now the killing of two significant leaders, you can see a serious escalation on the horizon.

The Pentagon verified the death of Soleimani, stating, “At the direction of the President, the US military has taken decisive defensive action to protect US personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a US-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.”

The statement from the Pentagon continued in stating that “General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region. General Soleimani and his Quds Force were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more.”

Trump Doubles Down on Iran

Trump Doubles Down on Iran

President Donald Trump continues his maximum pressure campaign on Iran; Claims Iran wanted the US to drop all sanctions before negotiating; Rouhani: It was up for debate what sanctions will be lifted and they had said clearly that we will lift all sanctions.

As tensions continue to escalate between the United States and Iran, President Trump took to Twitter on Friday to reaffirm his stance in dealing with the number one sponsor of terror in the world.

Iranian President Rouhani claimed that the US was willing to lift all sanctions when he stated, “It was up for debate what sanctions will be lifted and they had said clearly that we will lift all sanctions.” This is a common reoccurrence from Iranian leadership.

Their tact is to make statements that the world will interpret as a sign of weakness coming from other nations. Iran has been showing their true colors for some time now. In fact, they’ve been exposed to the point where even the Europeans are becoming reluctant to help.

Additionally, Rouhani added. “This action wasn’t in a manner that was acceptable, meaning that in the atmosphere of sanctions and the existence of sanctions and the toxic atmosphere of maximum pressure, even if we want to negotiate with the Americans in the 5+1 framework, no one can predict what the end and result of this negotiation will be.”

Trump quickly responded to his remarks, tweeting, “Iran wanted me to lift the sanctions imposed on them in order to meet. I said, of course, NO!”

Maximum pressure is the only way to deal with Iran. Officials from outside the US expect the White House to continue their maximum pressure campaign.

Hezbollah Rising As Serious Threat to Israel

Hezbollah Rising As Serious Threat to Israel

Staging for Armageddon

The Iranian-Hezbollah Shiite axis continues to threaten Israel through their vast military network in Lebanon and Syria 

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah recently issued a new threat to Israel’s cities and sensitive sites, boasting of his terror organization’s ability to hit targets deep inside the country.
 

The threats came in a televised speech, serving as a reminder of the ambitious arms race that the Shiite terror army is engaged in, with the massive assistance of its state sponsor Iran.

The Lebanese Hezbollah is the world’s most heavily armed non-state actor, and its surface-to-surface firepower arsenal — estimated at around 150,000 projectiles — is larger than most state armies.

The IDF’s main war preparations focus on the offensive and defensive operations needed to deal with this threat.

Hezbollah Map Showing Targets in Israel

The purpose of our class is exposing this error by showing the true mission of the Four Horsemen in the first half of the Tribulation.

These four characters are nothing to be trifled with as they display the unmitigated wrath of God from day one of the 7-Year Tribulation.

On July 12, Nasrallah told the Al-Manar television station, affiliated with his terror organization, that Hezbollah has improved its offensive capabilities.

Displaying a map, he threatened strikes on strategic Israeli targets including Ben-Gurion International Airport, the Dimona nuclear facility, a power plant in Hadera, Ashdod sea port, and ammonia tanks in the city of Haifa. Hezbollah makes no distinction between civilian and military targets, and has made the goal of terrorizing Israeli civilians a top priority in future wars.

Nasrallah also threatened to hit the IDF headquarters in the heart of Tel Aviv, as well as a series of air force bases.

 

Rockets Aimed At Israel 

Across Israel’s Northern Border

Hezbollah built up its arsenal by smuggling projectiles into 200 southern Lebanese villages, as well as launch sites in the Bekaa Valley in east Lebanon. It therefore has embedded its firepower in the heart of Lebanese communities, turning Lebanese civilians into human shields if Israel needs to target launch sites and bases.

 

The projectiles are manufactured by Iranian arms factories, as well as joint Iranian-Syrian weapons factories in Syria. The Iranian Quds Force is responsible for smuggling the weapons into Lebanon.

This arsenal is mostly comprised of short-range rockets with a 45 kilometer (about 28 mile) range, but it also includes thousands of mid-range rockets that can reach central Israel, where the majority of Israel’s population lives, and which is home to the country’s economic hub. In addition, Hezbollah has several hundred long-range rockets, and dozens of ballistic missiles.

Just before the Second Lebanon War broke out in 2006, Hezbollah had around 11,000 rockets — less than 10 percent of what it has today — the vast majority of which were short-range.

Hezbollah’s top goal is converting its rockets and missiles into guided weapons. Stopping that from happening has become a top Israeli national security priority. 

With Iran’s help, Hezbollah has repeatedly attempted to set up “conversion factories” that install GPS guidance kits in unguided missiles and rockets. “Relevant components are transported from Iran to factories in Syria and Lebanon, either by land, or by air via Damascus, using civilian aircraft,” a recent report by the British Israel Communications and Research Center said.

According to an assessment by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, “Nasrallah’s threats express his growing self-confidence (and of his sponsor Iran), based on the significant improvement in Hezbollah ‘s offensive capabilities since the Second Lebanon War. Those capabilities are a function of a large arsenal of rockets and a relatively small number of precision missiles that cover strategic targets in Israel.”

Yet Nasrallah’s arsenal is significantly less precise than what he and the Iranians would have wanted it to be by this stage.

This is due to the determined, mostly low-profile Israeli campaign to disrupt the Hezbollah arms build-up of guided projectiles, whether by stopping the production and trafficking of such components in Syria, or by issuing clear warnings that missile precision sites Lebanon need to cease their activities, or face attack.

Israel holds that it is essential to act now to stop Hezbollah from gaining precision destructive firepower, rather than wait and face weapons that can change Tel Aviv’s skyline in a future war.

Israel’s United Nations Ambassador Danny Danon recently spoke at the UN and exposed the Iranian Quds Force arms trafficking to Hezbollah via Beirut’s sea port, using civilian maritime channels. The Port of Beirut is now the Port of Hezbollah,” he said.

Israel Remains Vigilant

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem 

Over the last six years Israel has foiled Iranian attempts to build bases in Syria, and stopped them from building thousands of projectiles, from bringing in jets filled with military equipment, and the IRGC from bringing tanks into Syria.

It’s not “if” a conflict will come against Israel, but when will it arrive! 

The Hezbollah threat, and the direct Iranian threat remain intact keeping Israel preparing day and night for the next conflict. 

White House Releases Executive Order

White House Releases Executive Order

New Sanctions rolled out Monday in retaliation for downing a U.S. drone and aimed at the core of Iran’s leadership as Trump escalates his ‘maximum pressure’ campaign on Iran.

Executive Order:
Read President Trump’s order imposing sanctions on the $100 billion financial empire belonging to the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Iran’s supreme leader has a vast financial empire from the backs of the Iranian people far greater than the wealth accumulated by the late Shah of Iran.

Trump Sanctions

Iranian Leaders

The new sanctions that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced will also target the assets of the senior military leaders responsible for threatening to close the Strait of Hormuz and the commander of Iran’s air force, who Mnuchin said was responsible for shooting down the American drone in international waters on Thursday.

Mnuchin said he will announce sanctions later this week against Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, one of Iran’s most public figures who served an instrumental role in crafting the 2015 nuclear agreement brokered by the Obama administration.

The White House decision follows Iran’s lashing out at existing, punishing sanctions – including against Qassem Soleimani, the shadowy head of Iran’s elite Quds Force – that have crippled the Iranian economy and choked off its ability to sell oil.

It also comes at a time of perceived military escalation between Iran and American assets in the region.

“There’s no question that locking up the money worked last time. And locking up the money works now,” Mnuchin said from the White House briefing room, shortly after meeting with Trump in the Oval Office.
