Are you following what is going on in Iran and the Persian Gulf? If so, you know that President Trump has ordered large-scale military assets, including a US Navy carrier group and more troops, to the region. Likewise, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has met with key leaders in the Middle East and weapon deals are being made quickly with American allies.
It is no secret that Iran is not happy with President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the ill-fated Iranian nuclear deal, and they are very angry at the sanctions America re-imposed due to their violations of the terms of the agreement.
For weeks they have threatened the US and our allies and placed missiles in strategic places, aimed at American military bases and other American interests. The war of words between the Trump administration and the Iranian regime ratcheted up. But a critical development raised the stakes.
Israeli intelligence provided the US administration photo evidence of Iranian personnel actively conducting operations at those launch sites, perhaps preparing to launch. Apparently that sped up Trump’s command to move large-scale military assets to the Persian Gulf and bypass Congress in a quick decision to arm our allies in the region.
Meanwhile, sanctions continue to choke out Iran’s biggest export (oil and gas), while America has become the largest oil and gas exporter in the world.
Ezekiel 38 clearly identifies Iran as a major player in the War of Gog and Magog, and clearly reveals the motivation as plunder and spoils, not the destruction of Israel! With more and more oil and gas reserves being discovered in Israel, that makes them the prime target, just as Ezekiel prophesied!
Interesting things are also happening in Europe and the Middle East, further setting the stage for the coming invasion from the north and, I believe, for the rise of one who promises peace: the antichrist!
Put your seatbelts on, my friends! We could be in for quite a ride! Let’s hope our ride is that glorious “catching away” when we go to meet Jesus in the air!
Are you ready?
