How the fabric of prophecy is woven into a garment of destruction
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told CNN that the "time has come" to deal with Iran. Referencing the United Nations report indicating Iran was developing nuclear technology with the intent to weaponize it, Barak said, "People understand now that Iran is determined to reach nuclear weapons...and that should be stopped." Meanwhile, Iran launched an air defense drill that, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency, will use "missile systems, advanced anti-aircraft artillery and various radar systems, as well as "tactical maneuvers aimed at increasing the level of preparedness amid possible threats to the Islamic homeland's airspace, particularly with regards to the country's...nuclear centers.""
Iran's vassal state nearest to Israel, Syria, is experiencing domestic unrest, but both Iran and Russia are working to shore up dictator-president Bashar Assad's grip on the nation. The Syrian News Agency reports that Russian warships will arrive near Syria later this week. This sends a signal to the West that Russia will have a hand in preventing any foreign involvement in the Syrian unrest. AP reports that the terrorist group Hezbollah has compromised CIA and Israeli intelligence in Lebanon. AP claims that Iran has invested up to $200 million in breaking the CIA infiltration of Hezbollah. Hezbollah, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Jihad and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade are inextricably linked.
In July, Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Muslim Brotherhood held a two-day conference in Egypt to "Support the Option of Resistance." Resistance is the code word for terrorism among the Islamists. The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center reported that delegates from 14 countries attended. Among them were Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Turkey, Iran, Indonesia, Morocco, Sudan and Jordan. The Muslim Brotherhood's goal was to unite Shia and Sunni Islamists against Israel and the United States. The man who occupies the Oval Office and his administration have embraced the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign policy partner in the Middle East.
The Middle East cauldron is about to boil over. When it does, there will be revealed the true alliances of the end times. We are facing a critical point because the US is playing both sides--Israeli and Islamic--as never before in the brief history of this nation. It is important because of America's global leadership position and its traditional standing in the breech for Israel. The end time prophecies concerning Jerusalem, including Zechariah 12:3 where "all the people of the earth be gathered together against it" are weaving together on the loom of destruction. America has allowed this prophetic fabric to strengthen by partnering with the antichrist Islamists. If America dons this garment, more woes will come.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
