The Middle East and Israel is the Epicenter of our momentous end-time events.

The enemy nations surrounding Israel are closing in like a circle of fire. Israel is being squeezed on all sides and it doesn’t look like America is in any position to come to their rescue.

Tiny Israel is the apple of God’s Eye and the center of attraction in God’s end-time plans. We are watching the major building blocks and geo-political alliances rapidly forming across the Middle East. The latest developments are like stage-setting props bringing the 10-king nations closer to their apocalyptic destiny.

Most intriguing is that the nations are being subtlety moved into place, under the cover of darkness called COVID restrictions.

While the world is deceived, fearful and sidetracked, and the church sees little relevance, Satan is maneuvering with astounding efficiency, bringing the Islamic Empire back to life and readying it for its successful launch!

The Collapse of Lebanon Means it Will Fall To Iran! Israel Must Act Before Iran and Hezbollah Take Back Control of the Golan Heights.

The Beirut Blast 2020:
Catalyst for Collapse Leading to Biblical Prophecy!

It was just after 6 p.m. on Aug. 4, 2020. Hundreds of tons of ammonium nitrate had ignited in a dilapidated warehouse in the Beirut port. The resulting explosion shredded through the capital in seconds, leaving a trail of death and destruction.

At least 217 people were killed in the blast, one of the largest non-nuclear explosions in history. It was the nail in the coffin for Lebanon!

 

 

 

 

Prophecy says that the tiny nation of Lebanon, with its vital location, will play a strategic role in the coming empire of Antichrist. The fall of Lebanon is another failed state that’s collapsing with strong prophetic implications in the Eighth Kingdom, the Beast of Revelation.

So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

Revelation 13:4

Step out on the street in Beirut, Lebanon, and you’ll notice a lot of traffic lights don’t work. Then you’ll see the gas lines and bare shelves in once well-stocked pharmacies. 

The once-thriving capitol of Lebanon, has collapsed amid a historic economic crisis. Banks are freezing withdrawals and pharmacies are running out of medicines.

The World Bank says Lebanon is the worst economic crises anywhere in the world since the 1800s.

The plight of Lebanon has been brought on by Iran through it’s 20 year stranglehold on the country through its proxy Hezbollah. The terrorist group is one of the largest in the world and one of the best funded which Israel estimates is now equipped with 150,000 rockets aimed at Israel to their south.

Lebanon is the western anchor of the coming Caliphate. It borders the beautiful Mediterranean to its west and Israel to it’s south. It is positioned to become a crucial factor for Iran because it sits as it’s closest proxy to Israel.

In the future Battle of Armageddon, the invading armies of the Caliphate will need to travel down through Syria and into Lebanon to enter Israel on their way to capturing Jerusalem.

Israeli Analyst:
Israel must act before Iran, Hezbollah take Golan Heights

Commentator on Arab affairs, Ehud Yaari, warned Tuesday that Israel’s northern front with Lebanon and Syria is becoming deeply entrenched with Iranian military presence.

He argued that Iran has been slowly assimilating itself into the fabric of Lebanon and into Syrian villages in the Golan and quietly overtaking units from the Syrian army.

“They’ve inserted themselves into Lebanon and into Syria’s nervous system – its chain of command – and into the everyday lives of the population.” he said. 

By doing so, Tehran is playing the long game and avoiding any confrontation with the IDF for the time being. “Iran knows that once it erects a military outpost in the area, the IDF will not hesitate to strike,” he explained.

“If Israel does not act soon, Iran and Hezbollah will establish a significant military presence in the Golan,” he concluded. He urged Israeli lawmakers to wake up before “our front with Hezbollah doesn’t extend from the Mediterranean Sea to the Hermon, but will go further south until the Jordan River.”

The concerns raised by the senior analyst are supported by a recent report published by a Turkish thinktank saying Iran has doubled its presence in southern Syria’s Golan Heights, while building military infrastructure for a future conflict with Israel.

Pressure is mounting on Israel because we are living in the unique season of the run-up to the 7-year Tribulation.

With the decline of American support, the collapse of Lebanon on their northern border and the constant barrage of rockets being fired into their country by Hamas in Gaza, Israel is surrounded by trouble on all sides.

The GOOD NEWS is that if the Tribulation is getting close the Rapture is getting closer!

Biden is Iran’s Survival Strategy –  Even After Iran Elects Mass Murderer Raisi, Biden Still Unfazed

Biden is Iran’s Survival Strategy – Even After Iran Elects Mass Murderer Raisi, Biden Still Unfazed

 

 

 

 

Iran just elected a mass murderer — so naturally Team Biden wants to negotiate.

Newly elected president and mass murderer of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi being congratulated for his sham victory by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

In picking a mass murderer as his potential successor, Iran’s supreme leader hopes to make the United States a willing partner in the repression of his country’s people.

Biden is Iran’s Survival Strategy
Edited from Caroline Glick

Editors Note: Please take 5 minutes to read this outstanding article on Biden’s strategy with Iran.

From one end of Iran to the other, citizens are suffering. The regime is failing the people at all levels. Water shortages are endemic. Power outages are a matter of course. The sick and impoverished, livestock and crops are dying from lack of water, oxygen and overheating. Petroleum workers are on strike due to starvation-level wages.

Wherever one turns in Iran, everything is broken.

The regime has two plans to avoid the wrath of the people—repression and sanctions relief. And the Biden administration is giving the Iranian regime every reason to believe that it can pull off both.

In the not-so-distant past, Iranian dictator Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s decision to elevate Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raisi to serve as Iran’s next president beginning next month would have been greeted with stunned revulsion.

Raisi is a sadistic mass murderer. He first rose to prominence in 1988, when he served as one of one four members of the “death commission” that was directly responsible for the execution of some 30,000 dissidents, including children.

The dissidents weren’t merely executed. Many of them were subjected to torture before they were murdered. Women and girls were singled out for particularly monstrous treatment: Raisi and his partners had their young female victims raped before execution to ensure all “enemies of the regime” would burn in hell.

Raisi’s role in the 1988 massacre wasn’t a one-off. As he rose through the ranks of Iran’s judiciary, he sentenced thousands of dissidents to death.

Raisi is the target of personal sanctions from the U.S. for his direct involvement in mass murder. Raisi also directs the Astan Quds Razavi foundation, which is itself subject to U.S. sanctions for its role in funneling funds to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Assad has directed the genocide of some half a million Syrians.

Raisi was just formally elected to Iran’s presidency. But his election was a sham. Khamenei and his lackeys decide who gets to run for president, and they also get to decide the results of the election. The Iranian public, well aware that their votes are meaningless, overwhelmingly boycotted the election.

Khamenei’s elevation of Raisi sent a message to the Iranian people: Any effort to oppose the regime—any demand to reform or overthrow the corrupt system—will be met with repression the likes of which they haven’t seen since Raisi the sadist killed 30,000 of their brothers and sisters three decades ago.

None of this has put a dent in the Biden administration’s outreach to Iran.

The administration has insisted that defending human rights is its credo. But as Raisi the butcher rises to power, rather than boycott Iran, the administration is making excuses for maintaining its policy of appeasement.

One excuse is that Raisi’s “election” in the midst of nuclear negotiations shows that even the hardest of “hard-liners” is willing to make a deal with the U.S. Another excuse Biden and his advisors are making is that Raisi’s rise isn’t a big deal because Khamenei makes all the decisions anyway.

A third excuse the Biden team makes is to shrug its shoulders. Raisi’s record of mass murder is not America’s concern. Reaching a deal with Iran that restores both Iranian and U.S. compliance with the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)—better known as the Iran nuclear deal—is America’s concern. Relatedly, administration officials make a fourth excuse: Raisi’s election means the U.S. has until August 8, his inauguration date, to finalize a deal.

To maintain the conceit that its excuses represent anything other than an abdication of both American moral leadership and strategic rationality, the administration depends on the public to know nothing about the nuclear deal, about Iran’s nuclear aspirations, its nuclear operations or its view of the nuclear deal.

Far from a nuclear nonproliferation deal, the JCPOA guaranteed Iran’s entry into the club of nuclear armed states. The limitations the deal placed on Iran’s nuclear operations were temporary and will all expire in 2030. By then, as then-President Barack Obama explained in 2016, the nuclear activities Iran is permitted to undertake under the nuclear deal will reduce its breakout time to military nuclear capabilities to “zero.”

As for Iran’s aspirations, the JCPOA was based on one major strategic assumption: that Iran’s nuclear program was a civilian nuclear program, not a military nuclear program. Dubious from the outset, this assumption was exposed as a complete fallacy in the wake of Israel’s seizure of Iran’s nuclear archive in 2018. It was the revelations of the archive that convinced then-President Donald Trump to withdraw U.S. participation in the JCPOA and initiate a strategy of “maximum pressure” on the fanatical regime.

After negotiating the deal in bad faith, the Iranians immediately began breaching both the letter and the spirit of the deal. From the outset, Iran failed to comply with the deal’s limitations on its nuclear operations. It exceeded the limits on the production of heavy water required to operate plutonium-producing nuclear reactors, and it operated more advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges than was permitted. It attempted to covertly acquire nuclear and missile technology, including carbon fiber, in a manner prohibited by the deal. And it refused to provide United Nations (UN) nuclear inspectors with full access to its nuclear sites. These breaches were not incidental; they were deliberate, although U.S., UN and European officials went to outrageous lengths to downplay the breaches in a bid to avoid having to acknowledge that Iran was violating the deal.

Although Iran insisted that it remained committed to the JCPOA after the U.S. abandoned it, the regime embarked on massive nuclear operations in open breach of all the JCPOA’s restrictions.

In the face of all of these known facts about the scope of the nuclear deal, Iran’s nuclear operations and consistent breach of the deal itself, the Biden administration argues nonsensically that by restoring Iran to compliance with the 2015 deal, it will be able to put Iran’s nuclear program “in a box.” But Middle East scholars Michael Doran and Tony Badran argued convincingly recently that the real purpose of the U.S. nuclear diplomacy with Iran is to realign the U.S. alliance structure in the Middle East away from Israel and the Sunni Arab states and toward Iran.

From Iran’s perspective, the purpose of the deal is far more limited.

All that Iran seeks is an end to the U.S. sanctions. Raisi’s “election” is further proof that all talk of a fight between “moderates” and “hard-liners” in the Iranian regime is nonsense that Westerners tell themselves. Iran isn’t interested in moderating. It is interested in having the U.S. save it financially by ending its sanctions so that it can build its nuclear weapons, support its terror proxies and maintain their wars against the U.S., Israel and the Sunni Arabs, and still have money to repress the Iranian people.

Desperate to advance its “realignment” policy, the Biden administration is doing everything it can to satisfy the Iranians. Despite Biden’s assertion that no sanctions will be removed so long as the Iranians have not curtailed their nuclear activities to come back in compliance with the JCPOA, the administration has already begun removing sanctions. This week, Secretary of State Antony Blinken removed sanctions on three Iranians involved with Iran’s ballistic missile program. Indeed, the administration has expressed a willingness to remove sanctions imposed against Khamenei himself.

So too, The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the administration is developing a new sanctions policy that will “stem sweeping pressure campaigns, avoid collateral damage and act jointly with allies rather than unilaterally.” The new sanctions policy is set to be revealed by the end of the summer, and among its goals is “easing economy-wide sanctions against Iran.”

In other words, as Iran refuses to return to compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, the Biden administration is looking for ways to remove sanctions anyway by using buzzwords like “multilateralism.”

Buoyed by the nuclear deal that gave Iran an open path to a nuclear arsenal, in 2015 Khamenei promised Israel would be eradicated by 2040. In 2017, regime supporters in Tehran held a mass rally where they unveiled a digital clock that counted down to Israel’s destruction.

The Iranian regime believes the Biden administration will ensure its survival by giving it a green light to repress its people and save its economy through sanctions relief. In light of the administration’s policies, there is little reason to doubt Iran’s assessment.

Biden Orders 8 Patriot Missile Batteries Removed That Were In Place To Protect Israel

Biden Orders 8 Patriot Missile Batteries Removed That Were In Place To Protect Israel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Turning Away From Israel

With Netanyahu removed as Prime Minister, and the new liberal government in place in Israel, Biden is getting more aggressive in his quest to turn against Israel and has ordered the process of removing America assets that defend Israel.  

The Biden administration is sharply reducing the number of U.S. THAAD antimissile systems in the Middle East in a major realignment of its military footprint there as it focuses the armed services on challenges from China and Russia, administration officials said.

Ring of Protection Removed

The administration is pulling 8 batteries of THAAD anti-missile systems from the Middle East that, just coincidentally, forms a ring around the nation of Israel, while at the same time attempting to rejoin Obama’s farcical Iran Nuclear Treaty that President Trump pulled America out of. What do you think is the agenda here?

“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”

Luke 21:20-22 

The Bible says Antichrist will come against the nation of Israel, so it’s no wonder that as we approach the Tribulation and Democrats are in power there is a constant pull away from defending Israel, and a rush towards making friends with their enemies. It is a familiar pattern we watched in the Obama years and now Biden is taking it to even a more dangerous level. 

Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion. But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor. Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth.

Micah 4:11-13

U.S. Military to Withdraw Hundreds of Troops, Aircraft, Antimissile Batteries From Middle East

FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: The Pentagon is pulling approximately eight Patriot antimissile batteries from countries including Iraq, Kuwait, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, according to officials. Another antimissile system known as a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD system, is being withdrawn from Saudi Arabia, and jet fighter squadrons assigned to the region are being reduced, those officials said.

 

 

 

Promise Kept:
Biden said that as president he will reverse the Trump Administration policy and open talks with the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO Terror Group) and give them funding and support.

Biden also said that he would reopen the US Consulate in east Jerusalem ‘to help engage the Palestinians’ something that would also reverse the Trump administration policy.

 

 

 

 

When a nation devotes a month to display its PRIDE in what God calls shameful while His people give assent by their silence… that nation invites His judgment.

Obama’s Dream Fulfilled! After 12 Years, Israel Replaces Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu With An Unproven, Liberal Government

Obama’s Dream Fulfilled! After 12 Years, Israel Replaces Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu With An Unproven, Liberal Government

Naftali Bennett
Sworn In As Head of 36th Israeli Government

Yamina Party leader Naftali Bennett replaces Likud’s Benjamin Netanyahu, the longest-serving prime minister in the country’s history.

Benjamin Netanyahu is out and surely former President Obama is happy to finally see Israel’s greatest leader Netanyahu lose and he must be thrilled as Israel forms first-ever government with Muslim Party, United Arab List.

The new deal is potentially setting the end-time stage for a much weaker Israel who could be more open to dividing the Holy Land for a Palestinian State which God warns will bring about the Tribulation period!

The unique arrangement calls for Bennett and Lapid to share the Prime Minister role over the next four years with right-wing Bennett serving as the Israeli Prime Minister for the first 2 years and left-wing Lapid serving a two-year term following Bennett.

Last month, Israel was officially 73-years old, and now they’ve reached another prophetic milestone in their march to the time of Jacob’s trouble by embracing a Muslim coalition which flies in the face of Scripture and is the very essence of an anti-Jehovah government.

Israel has now formed a new governing coalition that, for the first time ever, includes Allah worshipping Muslims under the leadership of Mansour Abbas and the United Arab List. Why is this so historic? Israel has created a government that is part Jewish and part Muslim taking them farther away from the God of Israel.

Now In Israel’s Government

A story is worth a thousand words and this is a picture that nobody in Israel could have imagined: the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood political party of the Islamic Movement, Mansour Abbas, sitting alongside Naftali Bennett, the envoy of religious ultra-nationalist Zionism. But there they were with the secular liberal Yair Lapid on June 2, pens in hand, ready to sign documents bringing a devout Muslim and Palestinian citizen of Israel into a coalition government with the two Jewish leaders.

Over the past two years Israelis have gone to the polls four times to elect a government to run the country, and each time Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leader for 15 of the last 25 years, failed to muster up support to form even a narrow coalition. The people on the left, center and right who wanted to bring him down couldn’t form one either.

But in the latest election, in April, a kingmaker emerged: Abbas, the Islamist politician who made the remarkable declaration that he would be willing to be part of a right-wing coalition, something no Arab-led party has ever considered.
