It's our belief that the first shots fired in the coming middle-east wars warned of in bible prophecy will be an attack by Israel on the Iranian nuclear facilities. This attack may be the spark that ignites the whole region into war, (Psalm 83/Isaiah 17,19/Ezekiel 29/Obadiah 1).
Recently, noted prophecy expert, Bill Salus, appeared on the Jewish Voice program and explained this coming event and how it ties into a prophecy. An event which we have noted in several recent blog entries; That of Jeremiah 49 and Jeremiah's words of warning to Elam. (See video below)
This is what the Lord Almighty says: “See, I will break the bow of
the mainstay of their might. Jeremiah 49:35 NIV
Amid increasing talk of a possible Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities,
Iran has begun construction of a new, state-of-the-art, anti-aircraft missile base. The new base, located near the city of Abadeh, in southern Iran, will cost $300 million, be home to 6,000 personnel, and host seven battalions, Iran’s Fars news agency reported Tuesday. The Deputy Commander of the Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base, Mohammad Hosseini, said the base, the largest of its kind in Iran, will also include one of the most important military training centers in the country. Last month, a senior Iranian air defense commander asserted that all Iranian air defense units and systems are fully prepared to repel possible enemy air raids. Also on Tuesday, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unveiled an upgraded version of a short-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile just weeks after it was test-fired, Iranian state media reported.
Iran official: If Israel attacks, it will bring about its own 'annihilation'
An Israeli attack on
Iran will lead to Israel's "annihilation," a senior Iranian official told the country's state-run TV station Press TV on Monday, ahead of the Non-Aligned Movement summit due to take place in Tehran later this month. The comment, by former head of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Mohsen Rezaei, came after, last week, the head of the Revolutionary Guard's air force said that a possible Israeli airstrike against his country's nuclear facilities is "welcome" because it would give Iran a reason to retaliate and "get rid of" the Jewish state "forever." Hajizadeh said in the event of an Israeli strike, Iran's response would be "swift, decisive and destructive." But he also claims Israeli threats of a strike are just part of a psychological war against Iran.
