While the battle for the White House rages in America, evil mice seem to be coming out of their holes all over the world! Iran seems to be especially emboldened by the prospect of climbing out from under suffocating sanctions applied by the Trump administration. The ayatollah can taste the sweetness of being able to once again fund terrorism all over the world, ramp up Iran’s nuclear production without consequence, and resume threatenting Israel by regaining strongholds in Syria.
Well, the IDF is having none of the latter! Just hours ago, the IDF launched precision airstrikes on Iranian military targets near Damascus Syria. The strikes were in response to improvised explosive devices discovered in Israeli-controlled areas of the Golan Heights.

Two things to consider:
- What happens in America has significant impact in Israel and the Middle East. The Trump administration has been highly successful in keeping Iran at bay, and without military effort. Why is Iran suddenly active again, and why are reports coming out regarding Iran’s nuclear production being 12X greater than what the ill-fated Iranian Nuclear Deal stipulated? Because the regime now feels emboldened by the prospect of a new American president. Let’s pray they do not get their wish!
- A day will come when Iran, Russia, Turkey and others will invade Israel. No amount of prayer will prevent that from occuring, as Bible prophecy proclaims it. God’s Word will never prove inaccurate! In order for the Ezekiel 38-39 invasion to occur, Israel must be in a position of solitude. No one will stand with her. Currently, the US stands firmly with Israel, so something must occur that causes America to be non-consequential to Israel. Our great country will ultimately fail that task, but my prayer is that it not be on our watch!
Pray for America. Pray for evil to be exposed. Pray for God’s mercy, that we might stand with Israel for another season of time. Yet, should God be in the process of bringing down a very proud country, may we as believers be found standing strong in our faith, and doing our Father’s business.
Pray for Israel. Pray against the evil in that nation, too. Though we don’t hear about it as much, there is rampant rebellion and lawlessness showing its face in Israel as well. Pray for God’s mercy and for the peace of Jerusalem. Pray for wisdom for the IDF and their military leaders, and for the beleagered Netanyahu administration.
Above all, be sober and be ready. Jesus is coming soon! (Perhaps that is what takes America out of the picture!)
42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43 But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 44 For this reason you must be ready as well; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.~Matthew 24:42-44
