Today, the Iranians announced the installation another 1,000 centrifuges to enrich uranium, it's apparent that the newly installed Iranian president is pressing forward with their dreams of creating a bomb to “eradicate” the Zionist presence from the Middle East.
Meanwhile the Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khameni has warned the West of “dire consequences” if it were to launch a strike against Syria.
If the Iranians don't retaliate, then it would project weakness in the Iranian regime, so be sure they will do all in their power to strike American and Israeli interests throughout the world. If they are able to pull off a significant terrorist attack, then this very well may force Obama to give the Israelis the 'green' light they've been waiting for to take out the Iranian nuclear program.
“Starting this fire will be like a spark in a large store of gunpowder, with unclear and unspecified outcomes and consequences,” the Ayatollah said. His words may very well come to pass!
Concurrently, Syrian army officials were quoted by Fars News Agency, saying if the West attacks Syria, they will have nothing to lose and it will rain Scud missiles on Tel Aviv. If Syria attacks, then you have to expect that the Lebanese will launch everything they have as well. Every missile would be launched simultaneously as the only strategy to defeat the Iron Dome and the Arrow defense missile systems is to overwhelm them with the number of missiles fired! This would force Israel to retaliate in force and thus the first few days of a 'limited' skirmish the US Administration is calling for – will not be a skirmish, but a full blown war!
The Russian media is reporting “intercepted” emails between U.S. Officials detailing how a “false” flag event would be needed to launch an attack against Syria. Whether this is true or not is not as significant as the fact the Russians are engaging in their own propaganda war which means they rejected the Saudi offer.
A few days ago, Saudi Prince Bandar reportedly offered Putin guarantees for their natural gas businesses along with the Russians maintaining control of Tartus, where the only Russian naval base in the Mediterranean is located. However, all signals out of Russia now indicate they have rejected the Saudi offer.
Who could really blame Putin for rejecting Prince Bandar's offer? Putin is a leader who wants to project strength and Russian pride, however one of the scars of his years as the Russian President is the massacre of Russian school children by Chechen terrorists in Beslan.
According to the UK Telegraph article which detailed the Saudi attempts to buy Russian influence in the region, Prince Bandar threatened Putin by sending Chechen terrorists to the Winter Olympic Games in Moscow being held in 2014. Apparently the Saudis indicated to Putin they “control” the Chechens! If this is found to be true, then it only ticked off Putin!
Throughout Putin's reign of power, Chechnya has always been problematic for Putin. For example, when the Russians were at war in Chechnya in 2002, a reporter who was critical of the Russian involvement in the region, asked Putin a question. And Putin responded in a way not understood by Western politicians. He literally told the reporter, “If you are a Christian, you are in danger. Even if you are an atheist, you are in danger, and if you decide to convert to Islam, this will not save you, either, because traditional Islam is inimical to the conditions and objectives set by the terrorists. If you are prepared to become a most radical Islamist and are prepared to circumcise yourself, I invite you to come to Moscow. I will recommend having the operation done in such a way that nothing will grow for you there anymore.” I suppose you can tell a reporter what you really think when you're the Russian president!
A few years later in 2004, reporters told Putin that he should engage in talks with the Chechen terrorists that killed the schoolchildren in Beslan, he responded, “Why don't you meet Osama bin Laden, invite him to Brussels or to the White House and engage in talks, ask him what he wants and give it to him so he leaves you in peace? You find it possible to set some limitations in your dealings with these bastards, so why should we talk to people who are child-killers? No one has a moral right to tell us to talk to childkillers.”
I believe if Prince Bandar had never brought Chechnya into the equation, a deal might have been reached, however, the Prince's overtures if found true, may have only strengthened Putin's resolve, as it was also reported that Putin said, “Our stance on Assad will never change. We believe that the Syrian regime is the best speaker on behalf of the Syrian people, and not those liver eaters,” he said, referring to footage showing a Jihadist rebel eating the heart and liver of a Syrian soldier.
While the West is building up their naval forces in the Middle East, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged against immediate military action, saying UN inspectors need four more days to complete their work before evidence can be analyzed and then presented to the Security Council. Can you imagine being a UN inspector trying to complete your job after snipers took shots at you earlier this week? If the U.S. takes to heart the advice from the UN, then the earliest for an operation is Sunday evening.
Next week is critical in the timing of events. On Thursday, Obama is scheduled to be in St. Petersburg, Russia, for a G-20 economic summit meeting. Can you imagine being in that meeting if a war broke out? However, if war did break out while world leaders met in Russia it would be a major embarrassment for the Kremlin and would deliver yet another blow to Russian and American relations. The Russian – American relationship is already strained as the Russians gave asylum to NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden.
Would Obama take action specifically during this time? Perhaps he doesn't want to see Putin, and wants to play chess with the former head of the KGB, and make a move before the summit begins or next Thursday, so the G-20 economic summit is canceled in St. Petersburg thus showing his political muscle.
So a delay of four days, would mean an operation that may begin at the earliest on Sunday or Monday and an strike before the G-20 Economic summit of Thursday would be prophetically significant! Why?
Most people do not realize that Israel will begin celebrating the New Year on Rosh HaShannah, beginning on Tuesday evening.
The period of time between Rosh HaShannah and Yom Kippur is known as the “Days of Awe” or in Hebrew as “Aseret Yemei Teshuvah” or the “Days of Repentance!”
According to tradition, the books are opened on Rosh Hashannah, however the deeds done during the “Days of Awe” or the first ten days of the New year, and each year one has the ability to “truly” repent and be found written into the Book of Life. However, if one if found out of the favor of God they are written into the Book of Death.
While this is Jewish Tradition, personally as a believer in the Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus), I realize the Bible declares that my name was inscribed into the Lamb's Book of life as soon as I came to faith.
The potential prophetic significance of the timing of this war certainly indicates we're certainly living in the “days of awe”, and my question to you is simply this, “Is your name written in the Lamb's book of life?”
Your brother in the Lord with much agape love,
