UPDATE 25 April 2018: This update is intended to make folks think. A lot. Cast aside preconcieved notions about how and when the prophetic flood will runs its course; if one knows where to look one might see that the course has always been determined and is discussed within the prophecies themselves.
For example, Jeremiah 49:35 where the LORD of hosts says, "Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the foremost of their might." This has always been interpreted to refer to Iran's preeminent weapon of modern warfare - the ballistic missile. Here's the thing: Iranian missiles are not just in Iran, they have also been deployed to Syria, to Lebanon and even to Yemen.
The Houthi's of Yemen have fired off dozens of Iranian missiles, but not one has yet to actually hit its intended target. Most have been shot out of the sky, others left to fall harmlessly in desert expanses. Just an interesting observation I suppose.
In Iran itself, and in Lebanon with Hezbollah, the missiles have a more menacing impact upon Israel, and to a lesser extent US bases in the region and also the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Yet we are left with the refrain of the LORD of hosts (i.e. Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as The Existent ONE, and His innumerable army of angelic beings) is going to break (shabar) as in a violent act of wrecking, crushing, destruction into many pieces of this weapon of war. The question is, is this applicable just to the thousands of missiles in Iran which pose a direct threat to Israel, or does this shabar also include the throusands in Lebanon as well?
