Global SITREP B5-15: More on Jeremiah 49:34-39



Final Update 30 March 2015: At least I hope this will be the final update to this SITREP. However, it may be the most important. It has been my assessment for many years that Iran has at least one, possibly more, working nuclear weapons. I also have always maintained that North Korean nuclear tests have been de facto Iranian nuclear tests.

Now comes information posted today from a respected military intelligence report which suggests exactly that, but with a twist. De facto Iranian nuclear tests have occurred in North Korea, and so is their assembly and storage site located in North Korea. According to the mil intel report two and a half years ago (October 2012) Iran began stationing IRGC troops and technicians at a base in North Korea and very near the Chinese border. Their dual purpose is to work on missiles and nuclear weapons assembly. This deployment followed by one month the signing of a technical cooperation pact between the DPRK and Iran.

With the reported key detail of the framework agreement (scheduled to be announced tomorrow) between the P5+1 and Iran holding that there is the "safeguard" of a one-year warning to a breakaway effort by Iran to produce a nuclear weapon by IAEA monitoring of Iran's centrifuges in Iran, what good does that do if Iran's military nuclear effort is based in North Korea, and in nuclear terms, a "stone's throw" from the Chinese border?

Not only is the alleged P5+1-Iran agreement worse than anyone, including Bibi Netanyahu, believed just 4 weeks ago, but it's essentially a mega-farce in continuing parade of mega-farces. Warm and fuzzies for everyone!


21 March 2015:  Are there any indications within Bible prophecy of a nuclear-armed Iran?  If you find one please let me know immediately.  Until that time, and excepting only Ezekiel 38/39, the only 'last days' prophecy there is regarding Iran is the subject of this and numerous other posts to Eschatology Today: Jeremiah 49:34-39.  The prophecy is about a very violent preemptive military neutering of Iran, and a conflict in which Iran's enemies end up subduing the regime to its complete destruction. And it all begins in that part of modern-day Iran where its nuclear infrastructure in concentrated. Historically, biblical Elam had ceased to exist as a nation over five hundred years prior to Jeremiah receiving this prophecy from God circa 600 BC. This leave no doubt that Jeremiah's prophecy is one whose fulfillment was appointed for these 'last days.'

It should therefore come as no surprise to any student of Bible prophecy that the much heralded P5+1 (EU/E3+3) nuclear negotiations with Iran are on the verge of collapse just days prior to the March 31 deadline. The collapse is due as much to the Iranian regime's rejection of the conditions being imposed by the P5+1 as it is due to the European partners rejection of major aspects of the "deal" negotiated by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.  The long and the short of these negotiations are that the Iranian regime has played both Obama and Kerry as fools, and which is something the European partners want no part of such absurdity as they know all too well the end result of baseless negotiations with a totalitarian dictatorship bent on imposing their ideology upon the rest of the world.

So, what we're left with is our faith in the prophetic word of God and knowing that its fulfillment is near. Very near indeed.


11 March 2015: Did anyone notice how Iran responded by PM Netanyahu's speech to the U.S. Congress? I am absolutely certain some of you did notice. For those that did not, and for those who don't fully grasp the significance of the Iranian response, this update is for you!

Exactly one week after PM Netanyahu's speech the Iranian Assembly of Experts elected the notorious Hojjatieh Twelver Ayatollah Mohammed-Taqi Mesbah Yazdi. Ayatollah Yazdi is the Iranian cleric who brought Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power in Iran. Ayatollah Mesbah-Yazdi managed to fall off, or was deliberately and politically knocked off of the top echelon of the clerical elite in Iran during 2013. A ruse during nuclear negotiations, no doubt. He was then summarily dismissed by most intelligence agencies as having little or no influence in any future decision to replace Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei.

Here is an example of that type of intelligence dismissal of Ayatollah Yazdi that was published by Israel's Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center on July 8, 2013:
"The erosion of Mesbah Yazdi’s status may be temporary and it is quite implausible that he will lose all of his political and religious influence. It may, however, undermine his ability to play a central, influential role in future political struggles, particularly the succession struggle that will likely emerge after the death of the current Supreme Leader."

The Israeli's could not possibly have forecast a more erroneous intelligence assessment, as he was down but by no means out of the picture. Particularly the big picture which will remain in flux until early 2016.

A re-assessment on exactly what is going on within Iran's powerful 86-member Assembly of Experts is in progress. At present it appears as if Ayatollah Mohammed Taqi Mesbah-Yazdi (80), and Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati have jointly managed to get a majority of votes to elect the similarly named Ayatollah Mohammed Yazdi (83) to the leadership position and send the body as a whole on a lurch to the stridently fundamentalist side of Iranian politics. It remains to be seen who may yet become the next Supreme leader of Iran.

6 March 2005: As even the main stream media in the Middle East is now acknowledging, the specific content and context of PM Netanyahu's speech to the U.S. Congress has received open and unambiguous approval and support from the Saudi Arabian government, proving what I wrote recently of the military cooperation between them in the ongoing planning for a strike against Iranian nuclear targets is nothing less than a cold hard fact.

So incensed are the Saudi's with Obama's Iranian agenda that one Saudi newspaper columnist said Obama was the worst US President in history; another citing Netanyahu's axiom that when it comes to Iran and the Islamic State, "the enemy of your enemy is your enemy" had particular resonance in the government halls of Riyadh. The Saudi's are keenly aware of Iranian encirclement of their kingdom - from across the waters of the gulf to Yemen in the south where Shi'a Houthi rebels have taken control of the county with Iranian direct support.

5 March 2015: With real-world events having once again fixed our gaze and our diligent study upon the prophecy of Jeremiah (Yirme'Yahu) 49:34-39. Through continuing study the Lord has continued to reveal new insights that I feel I would be remiss as a watchman to omit from mentioning.

Many are fearful to the point of hand-wringing angst that should additional sanctions be applied or Iranian nuclear sites be attacked by outside forces one of the first things Iran would do in response would be to militarily shut down the Strait of Hormuz to the flow of global commerce, especially crude oil.

Here's where reading Jeremiah 49:34-39 causes one to look critically at what the Lord has foretold.  Specifically, how could the Islamic Republic follow through on its often repeated threat to close down the Strait of Hormuz given what our Omnipotent God has declared through His prophet? 

How does Iran shut down this critical waterway when God has destroyed the crown jewel of Iranian military power? How does the uber braggadocian Iranian regime  make good on its threats when God has caused them to be chathath (to be shattered, dismayed, broken) before their enemies? Notice carefully that there is more than one enemy in the context here. Through Jeremiah the Lord has promised "I will send the sword after them, til I have consumed them."  

The world which has no regard for and no interest in the prophetic declarations of the God of Israel spends its time worrying, and fretting, and fearing that which ought not be. That kind of activity has no place here. Unlike others who worry needlessly and express fear over things they have no control over, Christians empowered by the Holy Spirit are in an automatic "In God We Trust" mode day in and day out.

Sean,

Great post..as usual. The Jer 49 prophesy is clear, and it is complete in its anialation of the power of Iran. As the Lord wills! As to the RNC point that follows this am, I apologize, but I am extremely cynical in the ability or willingness of the GOP to take a stand on just about anything that we believe in. So far, they were given a clear mandate and have all but blown it two months in. Couple that with the fact that so many of God's very churches subscribe to replacement theology, where Israel has been replaced by the "church" today…that I fear we are truly a remnant in our unfailing support of Israel, and recognition of Israel as God's covenant land and His people. I will contact my reps…at least make the case, but it seems the GOP can clap thunderously, but let's see if they can take a bold stand. I pray it happens…..God bless.

Sean,

Amazed that one more time the Holy Spirit has conducted a gathering of like minded Believers to reveal previously hidden truths about God's Word. Started my day in Jeremiah 48 and 49 at breakfast and then I click on my computer and here you are adding to my breakfast menu.

You pose the best insight into what kept puzzling so many others and yet we didn't not what the troubling was about. How indeed can Iran consider their boasting and benign threats able to stop the Great I AM when the Moed has arrived?

But one thing Wm. E. Biederwolf, way back in the late 1800's and early 1900's has stated in his writing on Ez. 38 and 39 is that by the time that comes to being, the lands involved in Ps. 83 and Is. 17 will be toast. He states in his "Prophecy Handbook", on page 191 ""Cush and Put refer to the Ethiopians and the Libyans, while Gomer of verse 6 refers to the Celtic Cimmerians and Togarmah to the Armenians of the Caucasus south of Iberia.

Thus peoples living at the extreme north and east and south, on the borders of the then known world, Edom, and Syrians, and the old imperial powers of Egypt and Assyria and Babylon? These will all have passed from the stage of history, and the people of God will have spread so widely over the earth that its foes will, as Keil says, be found only on the borders of the civilized world.".

I quote this to demonstrate that our knowledge and understanding of the things of God and HIS prophecies have exploded in truth and revelation power. Not new revelations but the depth and truth of the Word as He meant it to be.

All of that to say that by Jove, I think you have something here. A simple little Israeli electronic block on Iran, Russia, and even Turkey would settle the matter if it is left up to humans but I think God's EMP will be much more powerful. Excited and fearless to await HIS NEXT MOVE!

There is not single human being alive today on planet Earth who has seen Almighty God move directly and omnipotently against a nation. Not one. But their will be, and soon.

Now consider this:

The ancient Israelites, many multiple thousands of them, who were in company with Moses experienced the Lord's hand moving with great power and authority in Egypt in many forms and on multiple occasions with all of their human senses in good working order.

All of ancient Israel then wandered in the wilderness for 40 years and during that entire time even more of the omnipotent power of God was displayed in all of its glory before them - they worse the same clothing and sandals and these did not wear out; they were fed manna from Heaven; they were handed military victory after military victory on terrain they knew not against enemies they had never before seen.

And we know what Israel and Judah did thereafter and what happened to them. Israel was taken by the Assyrians, ten tribes taken captive. Then Judah, taken into Babylonian captivity for 70 years. And then hundred of years later, again Judah was driven into an exile which lasted for 1,878 years (70 AD to 1948 AD) and still continues to some extent.

And exactly as prophesied by Moses during the confirming of the Covenant at Moab (Deuteronomy 29 and 30), and by Ezekiel in Chapter 37, Israel has been returned into the land, and to this day they continue returning to their promised land from many nations around the world.

Israel is today in the process of having the Covenant of Moab manifested before their eyes. What is the promise God has made? Deuteronomy 30:4-10

"If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from there the Lord your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you. Then the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers. And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.

Also the Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you. And you will again obey the voice of the Lord and do all His commandments which I command you today. The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the Lord will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
"

This is where Israel is today... in the process of returning to a Covenant relationship with God. And it is through this process that all Israel will come to recognize and receive Jesus the Messiah and all Israel shall be saved (Romans 11). It is also through this same Covenant of God (see italicized portion above) that Israel's enemies roundabout will have happen to them what had befallen Israel from 70 AD until the Restoration of Eretz Israel. These are the prophecies we've been discussing here for the past several years; this is the basic purpose of Eschatology Today. And so it shall continue until the Groom comes for His Bride.

Mark,

I keep telling you, ignore anything coming from CNN. They lie! They are the enemy media (enemedia). I will not post or link to anything from CNN.

And i am also now two full days into a full-time boycott of anything from CBS, NBC and ABC due to their deliberate decision to black out broadcasting PM Netanyahu's speech to the US Congress.

Nothing I write about comes from any of them.

Great Grany 5 said...

Sean,

I commend you on your stand against the liberal biased media and I so do share your distain for them.

I never listen to them, watch their programing because to me, it is supporting their attempts at influencing all of us to accept their political correctness and other such junk.

I can list quite a few of the news sources world wide also and especially the BBC of England. But the thing that sickens me is their drooling over the Occupier of the WH at 1600 Penn Avenue, USA.

Enough of my rant but I applaud you in your stand and willingly stand right there with you.

Sean, I fear the day is rapidly approaching when you're going to have to add fox news to your list....I hope the day don't come

mark3210 said...

Sean,

Just from a general scan of news headlines, it appears the White House and their media allies are treating Bibi's speech now with the same disdain and ridicule as his 2012 UN speech.

None of what he warned of is being taken seriously.

Instead, they seem to be trapped in their own fantasy world (which they project onto Bibi).

This makes me believe they have gone completely off the rails and we will see the "very bad deal" with Iran signed before the month is out!

Sean Osborne said...

Mark,

None of that matters one iota.

God is in control. His will is being done.

That's all there is to it going forward into the future.

jmoll106 said...


I`m thankful God has promised to break the bow of Elam. All things are in His hands.
Thanks for the update. You always give us precise events to go to God in prayer about.

Sean Osborne said...

jmoll106,

Each of these things is like the movement of the minute hand on the Lord's prophetic clock.

This has reinforced my recalling that the Lord's prophetic word about the 70th Week is based upon a 12 month calender of 30 days each, so its safe to assume that the time in which we live right now might also be on that same calendar.

That would put a slightly different calculus on figuring out how long an 80-year generation would be if it began in May 1948. A full 80 years on that 30 days per month calendar would be exactly 28,800 days, which would equate to 78.9 years on our 365-day per year calendar. From there the math is simple to know where we are on such a prophetic clock.

mark3210 said...

Thanks for another informative update, Sean!

Since I've been following the Israeli news regularly, I was aware Yazdi was promoted, but I didn't know there were people "worse" in the regime than Ahmadinejad.

And I'm also aware of the reports of Khamenei's illness and possible death.

Things are accelerating for sure!

jmoll106 said...

We are certainly seeing the fig tree (Israel)and all the trees(nations) taking their places for us to know that we are the generation.
I'm reminded of when Jesus entered Jerusalem in Luke 19 and wept and said " If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes."
At the end of verse 44 Jesus said " you did not know the time of your visitation."
I always and still believe Israel becoming a nation again in a "day" in 1948 began the clock ticking but if I'm wrong their seems to be plenty of other scriptural references from your Sitrep's that show we are the generation.
Your insight has been very fruitful. Pun intented.:)
God's blessing to you.

Hi Sean, what about these rumours (e.g. Debka) regarding Putin's sudden death.

There were some rumours about his death yesterday on Twitter that wee considered a hoax by some media outlets.

I would be surprised to find out Putin finally wasn't the Prince of Rosh of Ez 38 prophecy.

So these rumours are likely hoax but in an other hand we know that it already happened in the past that death of soviet leaders were not made public before a few days (now it is no longer USSR but methods remain the same).

I think that this disinformation may be the prelude of some sort of military operations (invasion of Georgia or a Baltic state).

We shall wait and see.

hartdawg said...

Hey sean, just a thought here, if Enoch represents the gentile bride as some say....that's if, and he was 365 years when God took him, perhaps that's a way of telling us the calendar will be 365 days during the church age and will go back to 360 days during the 70th week. Just a thought,...and I could be way off

Kenneth Moore said...

Sean:
Yes this is another indication of latter days of v39. Muhammed-Taqi Mesbah Yazdi is and I agree with your description evil. What strikes me is the verses tha describe 'my fierce anger' against the enemies of Israel. Watch and Pray...Look up!

Sean Osborne said...

NG,

Something is certainly amiss here.

Mr. Barechest Hexogen was reportedly ill before the highly dubious death rumors began to float around the web.

Also in play, Putin does not regard Qazaqstan as a country in its own right. He sees it as former Russian conquered territory that must be recovered into his Russian-led Eurasian Union (Magog, Meshech and Tubal).

Sean Osborne said...

hartdawg,

Just asking...

Why would One God has two calendars?

All things appointed of God are on one Divine appointment calendar, no?

And the only thing keeping the 70th Week at bay is His enduring patience for the final Gentile to be grafted in prior to the Harpazo.

No matter what, the days will be cut short for the sake of the elect in order to save the human race from total extinction.

jmoll106 said...

In Jeremiah 49 it says they will be scattered to the 4 winds. Sounds like being glassed. Also it will give the Iranian christians a chance to flee their persecution.

Sean Osborne said...

The "four winds" or "four winds of heaven"is a phrase that is repeated in many Bible prophecy passages.

In this particular instance the phrase is most certainly referring to a devastating event. That event appears to leave the regime defenseless against its enemies.

mark3210 said...

Sean,

I just want to make one more comment here on the Israeli election.

Months ago I thought Bibi and the Likud were going to cruise to an easy victory.

Since then we've seen an unprecedentedly large and illegal foreign based campaign to bring the radical left to power. Polls now show a tight race.

Regardless of the polls and numbers, I just can't envision Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni being elected next week, at the very moment that BHO is paving the way for the Iranian bomb. That would be a recipe for Israel's destruction, and that WILL NOT HAPPEN!

Sean Osborne said...

Mark,

The Zionist Union (Zionist Camp = the Labor and Hatnuah parties plus one Green Movement candidate) is not the "radical left" of Israel; they are a center-left coalition of political parties.

The Zionist Union are not suicidal in the face of the multiple threats Israel faces from Islam, Sunni or Shi'a, but they are more likely to make riskier political decisions. They may even the the political party in power when the prophesied (by Jesus in John 5:43) false messiah who comes in his own name is accepted.

Bottom line: God is in full control no matter what happens on 17 March, and Israel is on the path to salvation in the Blood of the Lamb.

NG said...

There are again lots of rumors regarding Putin tonight. Rumors of a coup d'├ętat. Other analysts think he might have suffered a stroke. I am pretty sure something important has happened or is happening in Moscow.

Sean Osborne said...

The Putin ill or Putin dead rumors have been ongoing for most of this week.

I tend to disbelieve most of them because there has been absolutely no military indication of anything having occurred in the Russian chain-of-command.

I'll wait to see if Putin shows on Monday for a public event in St. Petersburg with President Atambayev of Kyrgyzstan to discuss membership in the Eurasian Union (what I refer to as the Magog Alliance).

mark3210 said...

Sean,

When you say "I hope this will be the final update", are you implying there is no longer a point in Israel waiting for Congressional votes in 2 weeks?

Feels to me like any votes at this point would be largely symbolic as it becomes more and more apparent by the hour how unattainable a "good deal" is.

hartdawg said...

Question, I don't ask this out of fear, but it's still a question that I have, if this is so, and they have 1 working nuke, then what's to stop them from launching an E.M.P. on us?

Sean Osborne said...

Mark,

No, I am not implying that at all, not by any means. I am saying that I hope it's coming to the time for the SITREP that will document the fulfillment of Jeremiah 49:34-39.

The P5+1 is nothing but a secular sideshow to the literal fulfillment of the Lord's prophetic word. This blog is about Bible prophecy; not every nuance of the fallen secular world which is appointed unto destruction and then renewal by Jesus Christ in the near future.

Sean Osborne said...

hartdawg,

They require the right size warhead, a way to precisely deploy it.

All of this is dependent upon their own schedule and technical capability.

The elitist fools in the West believe this can all be "managed" via the P5+1 agreement.

What they are managing to do instead is bring about World War IV, the Antichrist and the 70th Week.

Roz said...

Sean:
If the Iranian bombs are being built and tested in North Korea does this mean Iran would attempt to strike Israel from that vantage point? Or move the weapons closer to home and then strike?

I think the US administration is aware of this tactic, and does not care of the wider implications for Israel, since they expect Israel to strike Iran anywhere at any moment.

Sean Osborne said...

Roz,
Those would be intended for use against the US.

Great Grany 5 said...

Been digging in my references regarding any other mention of Persia + nuclear occasion of any kind and nada. If Jer. 49 takes out their nukes and Ez. 38 and 39 sounds a death knoll, that about does it up.

Everything I have searched has been in my library and finding other interesting material about Elam.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Sean Osborne said...

GG5,

I have to say "Great Work" because you have confirmed that Jeremiah 49:34-39 commences Islamic Iran's demise and Ezekiel 38/39 seals and completes the judgment, and this is all there is within the word of God. Thank you!

NG said...

Let's hope Je 49:34-39 will come to fulfillment soon. Looks like they are waiting Passover to strike deal (if a deal there will be). Is that just a coincidence?

Great Grany 5 said...

Sean,
It was my pleasure to dig a little deeper in the scriptures. Lots of good information along the way and by the way, discovered the origins of Elam, the offspring of Esau was interesting. If I had known it before it was a forgotten tidbit.

Now all the news is full of how the few nations that haven't gone home are still in pursuit of an agreement with Persia and all of the slavering MSM seem to be waiting with baited breath for the announcement. My prayers are for the perfect WILL OF ABBA, as we all know it will be done.

GG5/Shalom

Sean Osborne said...

NG,

It seems clear to me that the pro-Iran Obama Administration treats Israel as if it were an enemy nation, so there is no consideration given by this administration to any Jewish holidays.
