08 December 2016: The coming war? Didn't President-elect Donald Trump yesterday near the home of the 82nd Airborne Division and US Army Special Operation Command (USASOC) say that America would "stop toppling foreign regimes that we know nothing about, that we shouldn't be involved with." Yes, indeed he said that loud and clear.
However, he also said loudly and clearly so that his words could be heard at the same volume in Tehran, Iran. He said, "Instead, our focus must be on defeating terrorism and destroying ISIS, and we will." The emphasis here is on the phrase "defeating terrorism," because the Islamic Republic of Iran is the world's number one terrorist state and has been in a state of war against the United States of America for the past 35 years.
President-elect Trump has also said he will completely enforce the compliance of Iran on the ridiculous nuclear agreement his predecessor and his EU allies made with Iran. This is an agreement that the government of Iran has thus far never officially accepted nor ratified nor abides by in full compliance. So how does one completely enforce a nuclear agreement that Iran, the world's number one terrorist state, has not accepted or ratified nor abides by? By force of arms, that's how.
So, did you see or feel the tectonic shift which just occurred within this SITREP? We went from Israel vs. Hezbollah and Iran in Lebanon to the US vs. Iran in Iran. Has this blog not given a sort of 'heads up' warning for months now of a literal flood of prophetic fulfillments in these final months and years prior to the start of the 70th Week. Yes, indeed these warnings have been given. And a flood of prophetic fulfillments literally links them all together, like a series of cascading prophetic dominoes. One tips over the next. I think you're getting the picture now.
9 December 2016: At the beginning of His sermon on the Mount of Olives, our Lord Jesus said that at the end of the current age and of the things there were to come there would be wars (akouō polemos: literally meaning the Jewish people would hear with their own ears both single battles and series of battles) and rumors of wars (akoē polemos: literally meaning the learning from multiple reports of battles occurring elsewhere), and "take heed, do not be frightened by these, they must take place, but notwithstanding these battles and wars, the end is not yet."
He immediately followed that prophetic statement saying literally "For multitudes of foreign heathen (not worshipers of the true God) shall rise against multitudes of foreign heathen (also not worshipers of the true God), and kingdom against kingdom..."
I hope we are all aware that this is precisely and exactly what has been occurring close to the borders of Israel - close enough so that some of these battles between heathen armies can be heard by Israeli ears, and others are conveyed in news reports coming from the neighboring lands. Non-state foreign heathen warriors are at war with other non-state foreign heathen warriors; non-state foreign heathen warriors are at war with foreign heathen nation states, and nation states are at war with nation states. Jesus in these two prophetic sentences perfectly described the current situation in Syria, just across and within hearing distance of the Israeli Golan, and just as is seen in the map above. The rest comes in media reports, again, exactly as He said it would happen. Indeed, we know there is more to come.
