US deploys F-22 fighter jets to UAE in apparent message to Iran | The Times of Israel

US deploys F-22 fighter jets to UAE in apparent message to Iran
The ‘most sophisticated fighter in the world’ now stationed 200 miles from Iranian border.

Joel 3:
Proclaim this among the nations:
“Prepare for war!
Wake up the mighty men,
Let all the men of war draw near,
Let them come up.
10 Beat your plowshares into swords
And your pruning hooks into spears;
Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’”
11 Assemble and come, all you nations,
And gather together all around.
Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O Lord.

Weaponizing the region. These weapons may be in the Persian Gulf, but ultimately the final battle will be against Jerusalem. Wars escalate exponentially when nuclear weapons are involved. Should Israel be afraid? Not at all.

Isaiah 17:
12 Listen! The armies of many nations
    roar like the roaring of the sea.
Hear the thunder of the mighty forces
    as they rush forward like thundering waves.
13 But though they thunder like breakers on a beach,
    God will silence them, and they will run away.
They will flee like chaff scattered by the wind,
    like a tumbleweed whirling before a storm.
14 In the evening Israel waits in terror,
    but by dawn its enemies are dead.
This is the just reward of those who plunder us,
    a fitting end for those who destroy us.

Ex-intelligence chief Diskin says Netanyahu, Barak 'not fit to lead Israel' and wrong on Iran
Yuval Diskin, the former head of the Shin Bet, launched an unprecedentedly harsh assault on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Friday, saying they acted out of “messianistic” impulses, were misleading the public over the Iranian challenge, and that he had no faith in their capacity to launch a war on Iran or extricate Israel from one.

Israel's "right" to hit Iran goes viral
A series of videos asserting that Israel is within its legal and moral rights to attack Iran have gone viral, and had been seen by over two million people as of Sunday.
DEBKAfile, Israel races against time on decision to strike Iran

I was praying for encouragement last night as I was feeling defeated. Every day it seems there's a new spiritual battle. I opened my Bible to:

Isaiah 35:
Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days.
    The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses.
Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers
    and singing and joy!
The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon,
    as lovely as Mount Carmel or the plain of Sharon.
There the Lord will display his glory,
    the splendor of our God.
With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands,
    and encourage those who have weak knees.

Say to those with fearful hearts,
    “Be strong, and do not fear,
for your God is coming to destroy your enemies.
    He is coming to save you.”

That's how the Holy Spirit works in our day! The Lord is still good. The world is on its last legs, so to speak, but the victory has already been won for those who trust in the Lord Jesus.

Arab seller of Hebron house said sentenced to death 
 “It is appalling to think that property sales should be defined as a ‘capital crime’ punishable by death,” the Jewish leaders write in their letter. ” The very fact that such a ‘law’ exists within the framework of the PA legal system points to a barbaric and perverse type of justice, reminiscent of practices implemented during the dark ages.

Dershowitz Blasts Zimmerman Prosecution: 'Not Only Immoral, But Stupid'
 With ABC News’ release of the George Zimmerman photo showing blood flowing freely from his head, the question becomes whether Angela Corey, the prosecutor in the case, had access to the photo before charging Zimmerman with second-degree murder.

Whether George Zimmerman is guilty or not, he's already been found guilty in the court of public opinion, whipped up by a media frenzy and a handful of black so-called leaders.

Gog & Magog in Slo-mo'

Israeli TV report shows air force gearing up for Iran attack, says moment of truth is near
No order to strike is likely to be given before the P5+1 talks with Iran resume in May, the reporter, Alon Ben-David, said. “But the coming summer will not only be hot but tense"...

“Years of preparations are likely to come to realization,”... “the moment of truth is near.”

Retaliation from Iran = Potential Gog & Magog:
The attack, the report said, would presumably trigger a war in northern Israel, with missile attacks (presumably from the Iranian-proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon). “There will be no tranquility and peace anywhere in Israel,” Ben-David said.

This could be the first full-scale war the IAF has fought in nearly 30 years, the report stated.

Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya will join you, too, with all their weapons.

Talks between Iran, world powers 'very constructive'
Officially, the international community’s long-term goal remains what it was when nuclear negotiations began eight years ago — persuading Tehran to stop all uranium enrichment and thereby relieve fears that it will use that program to create the fissile core of nuclear warheads. Tehran has long denied any weapons-related nuclear goals.

US: Iran must halt nuclear program
WASHINGTON – After Iran rejected calls to reduce Uranium enrichment to a level of 20%, Washington on Monday put its foot down, saying that Tehran must bring uranium enrichment to a complete stop in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions.

Or what?

Revelation 16:
14 They are demonic spirits who work miracles and go out to all the rulers of the world to gather them for battle against the Lord on that great judgment day of God the Almighty.
15 “Look, I will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me, who keep their clothing ready so they will not have to walk around naked and ashamed.”
16 And the demonic spirits gathered all the rulers and their armies to a place with the Hebrew name Armageddon.

Why Israel Will Attack Iran - Forbes
Israel is beset with a Masada complex. If they do nothing,  they fear they may not survive very much longer. If they act now, they will more probably survive or die with honor.

This Forbes writer has no idea what the God of Israel has planned. Quite simply: when all looks hopeless, the only God will crush Israel's enemies. 

Isaiah 17 NLT 
12 Listen! The armies of many nations
roar like the roaring of the sea.
Hear the thunder of the mighty forces
as they rush forward like thundering waves.
13 But though they thunder like breakers on a beach,
God will silence them, and they will run away.
They will flee like chaff scattered by the wind,
like a tumbleweed whirling before a storm.
14 In the evening Israel waits in terror,
but by dawn its enemies are dead.
This is the just reward of those who plunder us,
a fitting end for those who destroy us.

Iranian "diplomats" getting ready to terrorize America

U.S. officials debate virulence of Iran-backed Hezbollah's threat | Reuters
In a 2003 incident, New York police patrolmen observed a group of men videotaping the tracks out of the front window of a subway train traveling between Queens and Manhattan at 2 a.m. The Iranians were arrested, but later released after they produced diplomatic credentials. The law enforcement source said they were asked to leave the country.

In a 2006 incident, the captain of a sightseeing boat became suspicious after a group of Iranians taking his cruise along the East River broke into two smaller groups and started snapping pictures of the undersides of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. The six men all turned out to be covered by diplomatic immunity, the law enforcement source said.

In September 2008, three more Iranians with diplomatic status were observed taking pictures of rail tracks going into Grand Central Station that are not routinely accessible to members of the public.

Syrian Troops Increase Violence and Killings Ahead of Kofi Annan Deadline - International Business Times: Syrian government's troops have continued to ravage cities despite another promise by President Bashar al-Assad that the violence will stop.
The LBL Beast of Islam, specifically Iran and Syria, are calling the world to war - the last war. I believe this is happening today.

Revelation 16:
Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon [satan], out of the mouth of the [LBL] beast [of Revelation 13] and out of the mouth of the false prophet [Who's the most popular false prophet out there? Answer: Mohammad and his 1.3 billion followers]. 14They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty. [Iran has an alliance with China and Russia and is instigating a war with the West over its nuclear activities. Syria has been butchering its own people for over a year and is encouraging the West to intervene. Russia and China are allies of Syria.]

15"Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed." [verse 15 seems out of context, 'out of place' - but I think Christ's coming is perfectly placed right here before vs.16's word "Then"]
16Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
Sabre Rattling

Joel 3:
Say to the nations far and wide:
    “Get ready for war!
Call out your best warriors.
    Let all your fighting men advance for the attack.
10 Hammer your plowshares into swords
    and your pruning hooks into spears.
    Train even your weaklings to be warriors.
11 Come quickly, all you nations everywhere.
    Gather together in the valley.”
