Israel is preparing for an imminent direct attack from Iran; Tehran yet to decide, as Middle East remains on high alert!

Israel is preparing for a direct attack from Iran as soon as this weekend, according to a person familiar with reports. A person briefed by the Iranian leadership, however, said that while plans to attack are being discussed, no final decision has been made, says the Wall Street Journal today.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking from an air base in southern Israel, also on Thursday, vowed to respond directly against any attack on Israel. “Whoever harms us, we will harm them. We are prepared to meet all of the security needs of the State of Israel, both defensively and offensively.”

“And it came to pass in process of time, that the children of Ammon made war against Israel.”
Judges 11:4

This Week In The News

What a week it has been. If there’s a biblical phrase that best describes the Middle East over the last week, it’s “wars and rumors of wars”. From the attack in Syria that killed multiple high-level Iranian personnel to the looming war with Hezbollah in the north to the imminent invasion of the IDF into Rafah in the Gaza Strip, the tension has reached unprecedented levels. If that’s not enough, Israel is making preparations for a potential and imminent confrontation with Iran.

What’s worse is that the United States, has become unreliable during Israel’s darkest hour since the nation was reborn in 1948.

Genesis 12:3a
“I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you…”

Joel 3:1-2
“For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.”

Matthew 25:37-40
“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’”

At the time of Christ’s Second Coming, He will not ask anyone if they stood up for America or any other nation.

The Lord will only ask if they stood up for Israel.

In these historic times the enemy has deceived the Biden administration and America will end up paying a huge price.

Standing with Israel is not an option from God; it’s a commandment from God.

 

Israel

The tension is at an all-time high inside Israel as the war in Gaza rages on. Israel continues to receive threats from Iran, and they’re receiving strikes almost daily from Hezbollah on their northern border. War with Hezbollah is on the horizon. However, the aim of the IDF and Israel’s government is to finish business in Gaza first – specifically, the city of Rafah, which is the final stronghold of Hamas. And yes, regardless of what the world media is telling you, Israel is going to enter into Rafah soon and finish the job. Attacks are already happening there.

Maybe you’re thinking, won’t this isolate Israel all the more if countries pull their support due to Israel not achieving a ceasefire? To this, my response is twofold: 1) Hamas has rejected every ceasefire proposal put forth. 2) While it’s a shock to live through these biblical times, God revealed ages ago that Israel would one day be isolated from the rest of the world so that only He will intervene on her behalf. The God of Israel will make good on His promises.

 

Gaza & Hamas

One of the biggest complaints coming out of the UN and the global community has to do with the alleged death toll of civilians in Gaza. First of all, war is ugly, but the IDF does everything it can to minimize and avoid civilian fatalities. And let’s not forget that Hamas uses its people as human shields. They have perfected the act of cowardice. Secondly, it surfaced in a report on Wednesday that the Hamas-run organization responsible for keeping track of the death toll in Gaza couldn’t validate over 1/3 of the alleged deaths. Over 11,000 of the 30,000+ deaths could not even be verified.

On Tuesday, it surfaced that an Israeli attack killed three sons of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and four of his grandchildren were killed. One would think there would be great mourning. This is not the case when you love death more than you value life. He thanked his nonexistent god for their martyrdoms.

The IDF continues to operate in multiple areas inside of Gaza at this time. Often, forces will temporarily remove themselves from some key locations, which causes the terrorists to come out of their holes, exposing them, leading to their elimination.

 

Lebanon, Syria, and Hezbollah

As mentioned, Israel can see a war with Hezbollah on the horizon – it’s only a matter of time. By God’s grace, Israel hasn’t had to deal with Hezbollah while they wrap things up in Gaza, which has allowed them time to move reinforcements up north and manufacture more ammunition and weapons.

 

Iran

In what’s not a surprise, the Islamic state of Iran continues to develop its nuclear program in pursuit of obtaining a nuclear weapon – something they’re no longer vague about. Iran also continues to strategically sow chaos in the Middle East through its proxies in the region. Furthermore, Israel is prepared to deal with a military confrontation with Iran any day now following the targeted killing of two Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) generals and five others associated with the terror organization. This happened when the Israel Defense Force (IDF) leveled an annex in Damascus, Syria, that belonged to the Iranian embassy. One of Iran’s personnel that was killed was in the decision-making circle for Hezbollah and played a crucial role in the planning of the October 7 massacre.

The Iranians know that if they attempt to attack Israel directly, their nuclear sites will enter the crosshairs of the IDF.

The United States

While periodic support for Israel is expressed from the US government, the current administration is flirting with a dangerous line concerning the jeopardizing of its relationship with Israel. Some of the more recent negative revelations coming out of the US include the decision to label products coming from “Jewish settlements in occupied West Bank”, increased pressure in the form of withholding aid if they don’t pursue a ceasefire in Gaza, and more. Commander of the US Central Command, General Michael E. Kurilla, is visiting Israel now to consult with top military officials in preparation for an attack from Iran.
