Iran: New Nuke Deal Is ‘Not Acceptable’

Prophecy Sign:  The future prophetic Middle-East War(s)

How can the Obama administration possibly defend this mess of a framework deal they have with Iran??  A document not even signed which both sides dispute as to what it even means.  From the prospective of the Iranians they got everything they wanted, and if the Americans dispute that, then the deal is off.

The Iranians expect that they will continue to have a fully functional nuclear structure where all current facilities, including the massive Fordo underground nuclear installation, will remain intact. They are also demanding that once a permanent agreement is signed that all sanctions will be immediately lifted with no phase in time frame. And the Iranians are adamant that there will be no snap inspections of any of the Iranian nuclear sites.  In other words, the Iranians expect everything, including the kitchen sink, to be handed to them on a silver platter if only they sign a wee little piece of paper that Obama can wave up and down announcing 'peace, peace'

Meanwhile everybody with a brain in their head and not wearing rose colored glasses see this deal for what it is; a worthless and meaningless deal that will ultimately allow Iran to reach her nuclear goals and which will result in other nations in the Middle-East to go nuclear, (eg Saudi Arabia).

Let us pray that this so-called deal falls apart over the next weeks and that the current sanctions will remain in place and if need be, greatly stiffened.  No deal is far better than this stinker of a deal, and this is what Israel has been saying with great gusto for the last several months.

On the other hand, if Obama and his minions decide to sign off on this mess of a deal in the months to come then the Middle-East, and perhaps even other parts of the world, will be moved to the precipice of a great war. Not the war to end all wars, (Armageddon), but very likely the scenarios laid out in the chapters of the Old Testament writers, (Psalm 83, Gog/Magog - Ezekiel 38/39, Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49).

Iran: New Nuke Deal Is ‘Not Acceptable’
Iran has described an agreement to curb its nuclear program as “not acceptable” days after the United States hailed the new framework deal. Following the announcement of a framework accord that the United States described as a major step in rolling back Iran’s nuclear work, leaders in Tehran began to accuse the Obama administration of lying about the deal’s parameters. The disagreement revolves around a White House fact sheet that outlined concessions Tehran agreed to after negotiations in Lausanne, Switzerland, last week. On Wednesday, Iran rejected most of the concessions it reportedly agreed to undertake. Top Iranian leaders are describing the framework as a “lie” and announced that international nuclear inspectors will not be permitted to enter any of its contested military sites. Iran also maintains that all of the Islamic Republic’s controversial nuclear work will continue under any deal—a claim that runs counter to White House claims.

Iran supreme leader: Nuclear framework no guarantee of deal
A framework nuclear deal reached with world powers last week is no guarantee a full agreement will be secured by the end of June, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Thursday. “What has been done so far does not guarantee an agreement, nor its contents, nor even that the negotiations will continue to the end,” Khamenei, who has the final word on all matters of state, said on his official website. In the first comments by the supreme leader since the Lausanne framework agreement, an evasive Khamenei said he was “neither for it or against it.” The supreme leader also addressed the discrepancies between the US and Iranian accounts of the terms of the framework agreement, accusing the White House of lying. 

Ayatollah Rejects Core Element of Nuclear Deal: Inspections
In his keenly-awaited reaction to the provisional nuclear deal announced in Switzerland a week ago, Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Thursday attacked a key pillar of the entire deal being promoted by the Obama administration – the question of inspections of suspect sites in Iran.

Iran will only agree to a final nuclear accord with six major powers if all sanctions imposed on the country over its disputed nuclear work are lifted, President Hassan Rouhani said in a televised speech on Thursday. "We will not sign any deal unless all sanctions are lifted on the same day ... We want a win-win deal for all parties involved in the nuclear talks," Rouhani said.

Persecution Is Coming to the American, (and Western), Church

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing hatred and persecution of Christians

If you are a born again Christians who takes the word of God literally and believes that God has declared certain sexual activities as sinful, (eg homosexuality), then you can expect a whole lot of flack to come flying your way should you choose to express those opinions on a public stage.

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. John 15:18-19 NIV

Persecution Is Coming to the American Church
We’ve witnessed a dramatic shift in the culture in just the last 10 years in the United States. There’s hardly a moral tenet of Western civilization that has been left unscathed by the Progressive warriors who seek to blur the lines between Right and Wrong. Someone can now stand in the town square and proclaim that 2+2 = 5  and no one will look askance at him because truth is said to be fluid and evolving. Who is to say his equation is wrong? We’ve seen an emerging — and virulent —  strain of intolerance and bigotry in recent years directed at Christians who hold to the traditional, orthodox teachings of the faith, and there’s more bubbling up from beneath the surface of our once predominantly Christian nation. The mayhem we witnessed in Indiana this past week is just the tip of the iceberg 

Franklin Graham Warns 'Ugly, Anti-Christian Bias and Intolerance' Is Changing America 'From the Inside Out' in Easter Message
Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham said in an Easter Sunday message that Christians around the world continue facing higher levels of persecution and violence, and warned that "ugly, anti-Christian bias and intolerance" is changing America. "Today, untold millions of Christians around the world are celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And millions in many countries risk their freedom and — their very lives — to worship Him and claim His Name. Even under the threat of imprisonment, they faithfully follow, like pastor Saeed Abidini and scores of others," Graham said, referring to the imprisoned Christian pastor and U.S. citizen in Iran.

Putin Orders Huge Arctic Military Exercise

Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of Wars

So while the Middle-East square up against Israel and Israel considers her options against Iran, let's not forget all the other global hot-spots around the world which could just as easily explode into war. This includes Eastern Europe, (Russia/NATO), Asia, (North Korea/China/America), and the Arabian Peninsula, (Sunni vs Shiite).

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Matthew 24:6 NIV


Putin Orders Huge Arctic Military Exercise
Russian president Vladimir Putin has launched massive military manoeuvres involving 40,000 servicemen in the Arctic, in an effort to expand its presence in the polar region. Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, who is overseeing an expensive modernisation of the armed forces, said Russia faced new threats to its security which obliged it to boost its military strength and capabilities. In a statement carried by Russian news agencies, he said that more than 50 surface ships and submarines and 110 aircraft will be used in the snap exercises. He said Mr Putin has ordered the manoeuvres in order to check the readiness of Russia's Northern Fleet.

U.S. and Middle East officials are warning that Iranian involvement in Yemen could lead to a greater regional war in the Middle East. Steps are being taken to stop the Iranian advance, but are they too little, too late? The United States has stepped to the sidelines, leaving it up countries like Turkey and Saudi Arabia to try to block Iran's bids for power throughout the region. On Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran to sign some economic cooperation

Israel Should 'Seriously Consider' Striking Iran, Expert Says

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East war(s)

The more we read about this so-called deal between the P5+1 and Iran, the more we know that the Iranians took Obama and crew to the proverbial cleaners and left them naked in the back alley.  The Israelis know this as well and are considering their options.  Some Israelis are calling for a military strike, and who should blame them?  Turns outs even Obama admits that the Iranians are free to ramp up their nuclear program to a near zero breakout time in just 13 years time.  Interesting note, the framework deal came together on a particular date of huge importance in Jewish history, (see article below).  Of course launching a preemptive strike will likely set off World War 3, (Gog/Magog/Psalm 83), in the Middle-East as every enemy of Israel line up at her border in anticipation of another fight.

Israel Should 'Seriously Consider' Striking Iran, Expert Says
Israel should "seriously consider" a military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities in the aftermath of the "framework deal" announced between Tehran and western powers Thursday, a leader defense and security expert said. Speaking to Arutz Sheva Friday, Professor Efraim Inbar, who heads the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, said the deal had realized Israel's worst fears by leaving Iran's nuclear program essentially intact. The Islamic Republic's nuclear program has been granted "legitimacy" by the agreement, which still allowed it to continue enriching uranium and to maintain a reactor capable of producing enriched plutonium, he said. "And that's what worries Israel, that they (Iran) will be able within a short time frame to reach a nuclear bomb."

IDF General: 'Dramatic Steps' Possible on Iran

Obama admits: Deal will give Iran ‘near zero’ breakout time in 13 years
Defending an emerging nuclear deal, President Barack Obama said Iran would be kept a year away from obtaining a nuclear weapon for more than a decade, but conceded Tuesday that the buffer period could shrink to almost nothing after 13 or more years. Obama, whose top priority at the moment is to sell the framework deal to critics, was pushing back on the charge that the deal fails to eliminate the risk because it allows Iran to keep enriching uranium. He told NPR News that Iran will be capped for a decade at 300 kilograms — not enough to convert to a stockpile of weapons-grade material. “What is a more relevant fear would be that in Year 13, 14, 15, they have advanced centrifuges that enrich uranium fairly rapidly, and at that point, the breakout times would have shrunk almost down to zero,” Obama said. 

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said ‘preparing for war’ in case deal collapses

 'Egypt is Preparing for War with Israel'

Obama's Iran deal falls on ominous Bible date
When President Obama announced a “framework” nuclear agreement with Iran – which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warns threatens the very existence of his nation – few noticed the significance of the date. On the Jewish calendar this year, April 1 coincided with Nisan 13, the date in history when a Persian king signed an agreement calling for the destruction of the Jews. “King Obama has issued his decree putting the Jewish nation at risk of annihilation on the very same day that King Ahasuerus’ scribes came together and issued their statement to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language and sent letters by posts into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day.”

Shocking Passover Blood Moon Predictions by Israeli Rabbi

Recent Jewish events that are of particular interest

A couple interesting items of note:

First, a Jewish Rabbi predicted that the 44th President of the United States would bring bloodshed on Israel.  This just happens to be Barack Obama and this prediction was made before Obama became president.  This same Rabbi also predicted that the appearance of Messiah would be necessary to counter this danger.

And secondly, it looks like a pure red heifer may have been found in America which according to several Jewish orthodox religious types would fit the bill to make sacrifice for any new Temple requiring consecration.

As we said, interesting, and we will leave you to decide if significant as to the days we now live in.

Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; Genesis 1:14 NASB

Shocking Passover Blood Moon Predictions by Israeli Rabbi
A mystic rabbi living in southern Israel is urging all Jews to pray and repent as the third Blood Moon of a tetrad cycle approaches. Rabbi Amram Vaknin, who similarly predicted the events of the Gaza flotilla and the Carmel forest fire in 2010, and Operations Pillar of Defense (2012) and Protective Edge (2014), warns that Israel is facing great judgment and potential danger at this time. One of Rabbi Vaknin’s students, Gil Nachman, spoke to Breaking Israel News and, quoting the sage, explained that the numeric value of the Hebrew word for blood, dam, which is 44, alludes to the 44th president of the United States. Vaknin predicted that the 44th president would bring bloodshed (dam) to the Jewish people. It should be noted that the rabbi made this prediction before President Barack Obama’s election to office. Vaknin believes that only 44 plus one, or 45, can counter the danger represented by the blood moons. This, he says, is Adam, or Man, which in this case refers to the Messiah.

A Passover Sign from God?
A fully red cow on a small farm outside Lakewood, New Jersey is attracting worldwide attention in orthodox Jewish circles and various movements with a Messianic or “End of Days” bent. Let me explain why. In the Biblical Book of Numbers (19:2-13) it stipulates that the only way to purify oneself after contact with the dead is to be sprinkled with water that is a mixture of hyssop, cedar-wood, scarlet and the ashes of a red heifer or cow – in Hebrew, “Parah Adumah” – sacrificed on the altar of the Holy Tabernacle. Put differently, according to Biblical law, to overcome the impurity of death, one needs a kosher red heifer for a sacrifice in the Temple. For a red cow to be “kosher” it must be totally red. A mere two black or white hairs, in close proximity to each other, disqualifies it.
And now it seems that such a red heifer – two years old and unblemished – has appeared in Howell, New Jersey. The red cow was born to two black bovines on the farm of Herb Celler, the son of Auschwitz survivors. Rabbis are presently arriving from various locations around the world and, so far, the cow has passed the kosher test with flying colors – so to speak. Mr. Celler said he was offered one million dollars for the cow. He turned down the offer, however, and plans to send the red heifer as a gift to Israel.

World warned: Prepare for more Ebola-like outbreaks

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, Plagues and Disease

Think the worst is over with the African Ebola outbreak?  Perhaps for this strain and disease, but there are far worst things happening which will make the most recent Ebola outbreak look like child's play.  Prophecy warns that a huge multitude of people will perish during the coming Tribulation by way of plagues and disease.

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV

World warned: Prepare for more Ebola-like outbreaks
Outbreaks of deadly animal‑to-human viruses such as Ebola could become more likely due to climate change and human encroachment into untouched natural habitats, a leading United Nations expert has warned. Dr David Nabarro, the UN Secretary-General’s special envoy on Ebola, told The Independent the world should prepare for more major outbreaks of zoonotic diseases – those which can pass from animals to humans – which he said were a “local and global threat to humanity”. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa, which has claimed nearly 10,500 lives in little over a year, is believed to have originated in fruit bats – and Dr Nabarro believes it is not the only disease that could transfer and spread. “I’ve been dealing with influenzas and Sars and Mers, they are a tip of the iceberg,” he said.

British govt warns superbug epidemic could wipe out 80,000
A new generation of superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics could eventually kill tens of thousands of people, with many of the deaths related to illnesses as common as the flu or routine surgery, a new government report warns. Medical professionals are increasingly concerned about new strains of bacteria and viruses that are categorized as antimicrobial resistance (AMR), which render obsolete many antibiotics and antiviral medications largely taken for granted today in hospitals and medical facilities worldwide. Up to 80,000 people in Britain could perish in the event of a superbug outbreak, while an even higher amount of deaths could occur from other forms of antimicrobial resistant infection, according to data contained in the National Risk Register of Civil Emergencies report, which was compiled by the Cabinet Office.

A Global Financial Reset Is Coming: ‘A Deal Is Being Made Between All The Central Banks’

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global economic collapse, (and reset)

The old economic order has to be destroyed so that a new economic world order can be implemented which will compel each and every person to have to take a 'mark' to participate in the new order of things.  Of course this will be the new economy of the future Antichrist and his 10 global cohorts, (Revelation 17).

'They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be treated as a thing unclean. Their silver and gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath. It will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs, for it has caused them to stumble into sin. Ezekiel 7:19 NIV

A Global Financial Reset Is Coming: ‘A Deal Is Being Made Between All The Central Banks’
There is an unprecedented reset coming to world financial markets and if you’ve been paying attention it’s impossible to ignore the signs. In fact mega-investment funds, governments and central banks have been secretly buying up and storing physical gold in anticipation of an event that will leave the U.S. dollar effectively worthless and governments around the world angling for a new global currency mechanism, according to mining executive Keith Neumeyer. But before the reset can happen Neumeyer, who recently founded First Mining Finance and has partnered with billionaire alternative asset investors like Eric Sprott and Rick Rule, says that foreign creditors must first deleverage their U.S. dollar debt, a move that is happening right now and is evidenced by the recent strength of the U.S. dollar. Once these U.S. debt holders unwind their positions, however, the dollar will be allowed to crash and we should prepare for a total financial, economic and monetary realignment.

'Skeptical' Canada Won't Lift its Iran Sanctions

Prophecy Signs:  Nations judged for their conduct towards Israel and the Jews

According to Genesis 12:3, God will bless those who bless and support Israel and conversely, will curse those that attempt to do harm to the apple of God's eye.  Nations will ultimately have to give account for their actions towards Israel.  We appreciate that the current government of Canada stands with Israel and so far is on the right side of the coming judgement of the nations.

I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. Joel 3:2 NIV

"All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; Matthew 25:32 NASB

'Skeptical' Canada Won't Lift its Iran Sanctions
The Canadian government has not shared US President Barack Obama's enthusiasm over the deal reached with Iran over its nuclear program last Thursday, by which the Islamic regime continues enriching uranium at reduced levels in exchange for the removal of sanctions. Canadian Foreign Minister Rob Nicholson responded to the deal, warning that the Islamic regime may still be able to obtain a nuclear weapon even with the agreement. "We have to make every possible diplomatic effort to ensure that Iran will never be able to achieve the ability to develop a nuclear weapon," said Nicholson, noting such a development could spark a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. The foreign minister added that "Iran's track record is not one that encourages trust."

Tehran and world powers reach solutions on Iran nuclear program

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East War(s)

So a framework deal has been reached between Iran and the international negotiators, with a full comprehensive agreement to be signed off by June 30 of this year.  The negotiators claim that this deal will end Iran's race for the bomb and peace will remain in the Middle-East, (did we not hear much the same in 1938 when the world powers of that day came to an agreement with Hitler prior to World War 2).

It now falls on Israel to decide if this is a deal they can live with, or if this is a very bad deal which will result in a unilateral Israeli strike on the Iranian nuclear program.  Should that happen, then the world could see a full-scale war in the Middle-East.  The link below to the Op-Ed article titled "Apocalyptic Betrayals' is a very good read and describes just what may happen should Israel launch an attack on Iran.  According to the article it would compound into a World War 3 scenario based in the Middle-East.

To those that have read their bible, the entire scenario laid out in the article sounds just like that written of in bible prophecy.  An attack on the the Iranian nuclear program, (Jeremiah 49:35-36), would result in retaliation by the Iranian proxies bordering Israel, (Psalm 83), compounding into a full scale war involving almost all the nations of the Middle-East, (Ezekiel 38/39).

Stay tuned, and keep praying for the peace of Israel and for the rest of the world.

Tehran and world powers reach solutions on Iran nuclear program
Iran and international powers have reached “solutions on key parameters” of Tehran’s nuclear program following eight-day talks in Switzerland, according to a joint statement issued by the negotiators on Thursday. During the media conference EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said the deal achieved as a result of the talks creates the basis of a future comprehensive nuclear agreement between Iran and six powers which is to be concluded by a June 30 deadline. The agreement envisages the Fordow facility being converted into a nuclear physics center with no fissile material. It was agreed that the Natantz facility would remain as the only nuclear power plant in the country. Under the deal Tehran was obliged to refrain from creating nuclear weapons.

Obama: Framework deal on Iran nuclear program 'best option' for Israel
US President Barack Obama on Thursday said a framework agreement reached at talks on Iran's nuclear program is "a good deal" that would, if fully implemented, prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. "Today, the United States, together with our allies and partners, has reached an historic understanding with Iran, which if fully implemented, will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon," Obama said in statement at the White House.  "If this framework leads to a final comprehensive deal, it will make our country, our allies and our world safer," he said. "It is a good deal," Obama added. Turning to Israel's concerns over the Iranian nuclear issue, Obama said the framework accord provided the "best option" to ensure the Islamic Republic does not achieve nuclear weapons capabilities. 

Iran nuclear talks: 'Framework' deal agreed
According to the US, the outline deal includes the following conditions:
Iran will reduce its stored centrifuges by two-thirds and reduce its stockpile of low-enriched uranium
Iran's excess centrifuges and nuclear enrichment infrastructure will be placed in storage, monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
All of Iran's nuclear facilities will be subject to regular IAEA inspections
Iran will redesign its heavy water reactor in Arak so that it cannot produce weapons-grade plutonium
US and EU sanctions related to Iran's nuclear programme will be lifted in phases, but can be brought back if Iran doesn't meet its obligations.
Mr Obama said the deal's implementation would be closely watched. "If Iran cheats, the world will know it," he said, adding that the deal was based not on trust but on "unprecedented verification".

Op-Ed: Apocalyptic Betrayals, (very good op-ed article)
What follows is a nuclear World War III. Iran will retaliate with an overwhelming barrage of potent, long-range ballistic missiles on Israel's population centers, and will likely also target the Israeli nuclear reactor in Dimona (which action could itself produce massive casualties). Hezbollah, which has about 100,000 long-range missiles supplied by Iran, will add to the unstoppable downpour of missiles. For all of its impressive successes, Israeli missile defense systems are simply ill-equipped to handle such a huge number of incoming missiles, and so there will be thousands of casualties. 
The world, as usual, will do nothing but excoriate Israel and call for restraint, leaving Israel with countless casualties. Adjusted for population differences, ten thousand dead in tiny Israel is like about 400,000 killed in the USA. At that point (if not much sooner), Israel will feel that it's very survival requires nuking Tehran and a few other major cities, which would destroy the regime along with maybe a million people. The Sunni countries threated by Shiite Iran's hegemonic aggression in the region may have already entered the fray at that point, or would do so soon after, and the centuries-old Sunni-Shia conflict would explode throughout the region even more than it already has. It's not clear how the war eventually ends, but there will be even more chaos as failed states and radical extremism spread across the Middle East. The price of oil will skyrocket to unseen levels, and none of this will be good for U.S. interests.
