Iran: Israel already crossed own nuclear red line - Israel News, Ynetnews: "If having the atomic bomb is passing the red line, the Zionist regime, that possesses dozens of nuclear warheads and weapons of mass destruction, has passed the red line years ago, and it has to be stopped," Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said on Saturday.

Fordo sabotage enabled Netanyahu to move Iran red line to spring 2013
"The sabotage of the Fordo uranium enrichment facility’s power lines on Aug. 17 gave Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu extra leeway to move his original red line for Iran from late September 2012 – now – to the spring or early summer of 2013.

It'll be delay, delay, delay until Iran and other Muslim allies are ready to attack Israel.

Netanyahu draws Israel’s red line for Iran amid secret discussion with US on a spring attack
"Netanyahu’s citing of late spring, early summer 2013, as the critical point on Iran’s path to a nuclear bomb appears to confirm that he has agreed to delay military action against Iran in negotiations with the White House."

That's all well and good, but Ezekiel 38 says it will be Persia (Iran) and a coalition attacking Israel. If that is so, and Israel has drawn the red line for attacking Iran at late spring, early summer 2013 - the battle of Gog and Magog could be any time between right this instant and early summer 2013.

Ezekiel 38:

Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya will join you, too, with all their weapons. Gomer and all its armies will also join you, along with the armies of Beth-togarmah from the distant north, and many others.
“Get ready; be prepared! Keep all the armies around you mobilized, and take command of them. A long time from now you will be called into action. In the distant future you will swoop down on the land of Israel, which will be enjoying peace after recovering from war and after its people have returned from many lands to the mountains of Israel. 9 You and all your allies—a vast and awesome army—will roll down on them like a storm and cover the land like a cloud.

 'We won't outsource our fate, not even to our closest allies'
"In exclusive interview with Israel Hayom, Defense Minister Ehud Barak adds important new component to the "all options are on the table" mantra: "And we expect everyone else to prepare for it" • The option of containment is not on the table. "Israel cannot rely on the world, or on the U.S. in particular, to stop Iran's nuclear aspirations, even if it is clear to all                  that action is required.""

Security forces on high alert as Israel marks Yom Kippur
"Full closure on West Bank in place until after Day of Atonement ends; large police forces deployed in Jerusalem; train and bus services ceased"

Wouldn't it be awesome and appropriate if the Messiah returned on the Day of Atonement - Yom Kippur?

Ahmadinejad's Yom Kippur UN speech an outrage for New York City
"This is a spit in the face to all the tolerant people of this big-hearted city that plays host to the United Nations because no other city on the planet has a citizenry patient and worldwise enough to put up with the theater of the absurd that usually plays out there."

So what exactly is Obama's response to a murdered US Ambassador? (cue crickets)

Another Benghazi atrocity:
DEBKAfile September 22, 2012, 5:45 PM (GMT+02:00)
The Ansar al-Sharia militia which murdered US Ambassador Chris Stevens and four US diplomats “executed” six Libyan security officers after its Benghazi compound was stormed Saturday by angry Libyans demanding an end to militia rule.

After the militiamen agreed to abandon the compound “to contribute to town’s security,” the six bodies were found shot in the head. US intelligence sources now point to the al Qaeda-linked Ansar al-Sharia as responsible for the terrorist attack of Sept. 11 on the Benghazi consulate."

Watch out! These are our "really, really, really mad" faces.
Sept 12 - Barack Obama vows justice for slain envoy Christopher Stevens
"“Make no mistake. Justice will be done,” he said in an appearance at the Rose Garden outside the White House, where he was joined by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton."

Slow march to the End

Iran official: ‘Big war’ means Mahdi’s coming
"For the first time, Iran’s highest-ranking military official has tied the reappearance of the last Islamic messiah to the regime being prepared to go to a war based on ideology."
  • “Of course this confrontation has always continued; however, since we are in the era of The Coming, this war will be a significant war.”
  • “The Islamic republic is going to create a new environment on the world stage, and without a doubt victory awaits those who continue the path of martyrs. … we can defeat the enemy at its home and our nation is ready for jihad. Martyrdom has taught us to avoid wrong paths and return to the right path. Martyrdom is the right path, it’s the path to God.”
  • Several U.S. officials, including Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, have called the officials of the Islamic regime “rational actors.”

No end to Iran's threats against Israel

Revolutionary Guards chief Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said Saturday: An Israeli war on Iran “will eventually happen” but the Jewish state will be subsequently destroyed.

Violent protests against video rock Pakistan on 'Love the Prophet Day' 
"At least 20 reported killed as demonstrators clash with police, while nation holds "Love the Prophet Day" marches."

Matthew 7:
15 “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. 16 You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. 19 So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. 20 Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.

Revelation 13:
And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation. And all the people who belong to this world worshipped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life before the world was made—the Book that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered...

18 Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.

Iran has come to Israel's doorstep!

Israel Golan military exercise

Iran pours more troops into Syria, ready to target Israel from Syria and Lebanon
"No comment on this revelation has come from the US, Israel or Israel’s military (IDF) chiefs - notwithstanding its menacing import, namely, that Tehran is no longer hanging about and waiting for its nuclear program to be attacked in order to punish Israel, but is getting ready for a pre-emptive operation."

Ezekiel 38?!

Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.

Exclusive: Western report - Iran ships arms, personnel to Syria via Iraq
""Planes are flying from Iran to Syria via Iraq on an almost daily basis, carrying IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) personnel and tens of tons of weapons to arm the Syrian security forces and militias fighting against the rebels.""

Israel stages largest snap exercise in years
"The Israeli army staged its largest snap exercise in recent years, deploying troops in the occupied Golan Heights as contingency planning for possible conflicts with Iran and Syria."

Iran mobilizing an army in Syria. Israel deploying troops to its northern border. Something's up!

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.”
And now, O Lord, call out your warriors!

War Drums
Israel military holds largest snap drill in years
"Tens of thousands of soldiers were mobilized for the exercise, including artillery and air force personnel, making the drill unique because of the number of soldiers and senior officers involved"

UK Joins Persian Gulf Naval War Games amid Iran-Israel Tensions
""This exercise is about mines and the international effort to clear them," said Vice-Admiral John Miller, commander of US Naval Forces Central Command."

The 30 nations attempt to intimidate Iran by having a big, scary "minesweeping exercise." The mullahs must be shaking in their, wait...instead they look to be laughing uncontrollably. Way to show them who's boss.

The American Spectator : The War to Come
"It may be shocking to some, but the Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was correct when he said a few days ago that Israel can not survive a nuclear weapon attack."

Iran: Jerusalem will be Israeli ‘graveyard’
"The author said the strategy of confrontation is rooted in the Quran and a message by Allah (Quran, 2:193): “Jihad on infidels, killing them until there are no more sinners and sedition on earth and until all are believers of Allah. But if they cease, then there is to be no more aggression except against the oppressors.”

Thus, the only strategy the Islamic republic will continuously pursue will be the strategy of confrontation, Forghani said.

He argued that many regime specialists believe that the main enemies of Islam are the “Zionists” and Israel and that the center of worldwide sedition is within Israel. Forghani said that with each hour that passes, Israel is closer to the end of its existence."

Post-Arab Spring "moderate” Muslim regimes cornered by radicals
"The United States is positioning military forces so that it can respond to unrest in as many as 17 or 18 places in the Islamic world, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced late Friday."

So much for Obama's "So let me say this as clearly as I can -- the United States is not and will never be at war with Islam,"

War was declared on you a long time ago, Mr. President.

'It's not about elections in America, but centrifuges in Iran'
PM Benjamin Netanyahu addresses claim that he is using Iran issue to harm the Obama re-election bid: "The only thing guiding me is centrifuges in Iran. It's not my fault that the centrifuges aren't more considerate of the Americans' political timetable."

Iran Guard commander: Tehran’s missiles mean ‘nothing will remain’ of Israel if it attacks
"The top commander in Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard warned Sunday that his country’s missiles will ensure “nothing will remain” of Israel if it takes military action against Tehran over its controversial nuclear program."

Sounds like an existential threat to me, and another reason why I think we're approaching a glorious end the glorious End.

Once Israel's enemies start dabbling in nuclear WMD, you know it can't be far off. Christ's second coming shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. A re-gathered Israel is in peril, but God isn't going to allow a repeat of the Diaspora. This time Christ will come and deliver justice on the surrounding nations.

Isaiah 63:

 Who is this who comes from Edom,
    from the city of Bozrah,
    with his clothing stained red?
Who is this in royal robes,
    marching in his great strength?
“It is I, the Lord, announcing your salvation!
    It is I, the Lord, who has the power to save!”
Why are your clothes so red,
    as if you have been treading out grapes?
“I have been treading the winepress alone;
    no one was there to help me.
In my anger I have trampled my enemies
    as if they were grapes.
In my fury I have trampled my foes.
    Their blood has stained my clothes.
For the time has come for me to avenge my people,
    to ransom them from their oppressors.
I was amazed to see that no one intervened
    to help the oppressed.
So I myself stepped in to save them with my strong arm,
    and my wrath sustained me.

Armada of British naval power massing in the Gulf as Israel prepares an Iran strike - Telegraph
"Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war."

This is ridiculous!  Federal US Authorities interview evil Christian filmmaker
Evil Christian filmmaker, who apparently is responsible for all the Islamic atrocities on and since September 11, 2012 is questioned by authorities.

Netanyahu: What if the US does not intervene on Iran?
"I hear all those people who say that we should wait until the very last minute. But what if the U.S. doesn't intervene? That is a question we have to ask," he said.

I  wonder how much longer it will be before Israel decides to take action against Iran, or before Iran attacks Israel? I can't help thinking that the answer to that question will have a monumental (understatement) impact on how we go about living our daily lives. With Israel back in control of the Temple Mount since 1967, I can't help but think we are living in the last generation. I know many generations before us must have felt that way as well, but with Daniel's "time, times, and half a time" prophesies pointing to 1948 and 1967 and with all the chaos reigning around Israel today, I really doubt this corrupt old world has much time left. 

Then when I think of the implications of that, I have a difficult time even fathoming what that means. I know the (capital "E") End is described in the Bible, but the significance of the time we're living in is amazing and only rivalled by Creation itself.  We're potentially the  book-end to this age, opposite Adam and Eve.

Matthew 24:
32 “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near. 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. 34 I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place.

Isaiah 63:
5 I was amazed to see that no one intervened
to help the oppressed.
(Israel abandoned = current situation with Obama, et al)
So I myself stepped in to save them with my strong arm,
and my wrath sustained me.
6 I crushed the nations in my anger
and made them stagger and fall to the ground,
spilling their blood upon the earth.”

Not to mention Ezekiel 38.

Friday "prayers" predicted to be violent

Israeli military, security forces on alert for anti-US Palestinian and Israeli-Arab riots
"Thursday, Brotherhood websites aired divergent messages on their English and Arabic sites:  In English, protesters were exhorted to exercise restraint. There were also words of self-congratulation that the US embassy gates were not broken down and no Americans harmed. In Arabic, the Egyptian masses were called out to demonstrate en masse Friday against the made-in-the-USA film."

France's Hollande urges PM to give diplomacy a chance to solve Iran nuclear crisis
"“As prime minister of Israel, it is my duty to uphold the vital interests of the State of Israel, to ensure its security and its future,” Netanyahu said. “I uphold these interests, not that it’s easy, because leadership is tested in upholding them even if there are disagreements with friends, even the best of friends.”"

In reference to Obama no doubt.

Instead, Clinton reiterates an apology issued earlier today by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo--now deleted--which said: "We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims."  "

The White House's response marks a new low in relations between Netanyahu and Obama, underscored by the fact that this is the first time Netanyahu will visit the U.S. as prime minister without meeting Obama.

Not wanting to look complicit in an attack on Iran?

"With every passing day, Iran comes closer to a nuclear bomb, heedless of sanctions and diplomacy, said Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu at a news conference in Jerusalem Tuesday. The world tells Israel 'wait, there's still time'. And I say, 'Wait for what? Wait until when?' Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before Israel," said Netanyahu on a note of frustration against the Obama administration.

In fact, just days before Canada hastily broke off relations, the head of the Iranian army’s joint chiefs of staff boasted to the Fars News Agency that if Iran was attacked, America and its allies should expect major terror attacks in their homeland. The deputy chief commander of the Revolutionary Guard echoed this, vowing “Any aggression against Iran will expand the war into the borders of the enemies. They know our power…”

Very interesting article: Israeli expert: Iran already a nuclear power, but can't deliver a bomb
"The main obstacle in the Iranians’ path, Even said, is weight. Uranium is five times heavier than plutonium. Creating a nuclear warhead and winnowing down the complex infrastructure necessary to detonate it effectively — to, say, the one-ton maximum payload of Iran’s best ballistic missile, the Shahab-3 — “requires sophistication that neither Iran nor Pakistan have.”"

Presidential Polls, Israel, and Iran's Nuclear Ambition:
"As the Romney-Ryan ticket inches ahead in the polls, one of the little noticed implications just may be the avoidance, at least for a time, of World War III...

It would be a first, all right – the first nuclear strike since August, 1945, the first to start a war, and the first time an Electro-Magnetic Pulse weapon has departed science fiction and entered reality."

Did Barak Backstab Bibi on Iran Bombing?
"If Barak has bailed the ship of imminent attack, Netanyahu may feel that he has been left in the lurch without enough support for a strike he sees as vital for national survival – even though it is he, in the end, who can give orders for such an attack, with or without Barak"
