EBRAHIM RAISI ELECTED PRESIDENT OF IRAN

Iran’s hard-line judiciary chief won a landslide victory Saturday in the country’s presidential election, a vote that both propelled the supreme leader’s protégé into Tehran’s highest civilian position. However, the voter turnout was the lowest turnout in the Islamic Republic’s history.

The election of Ebrahim Raisi, already sanctioned by the U.S. in part over his involvement in the mass execution of thousands of political prisoners in 1988, became more of a coronation after his strongest competition found themselves disqualified from running.

That sparked calls for a boycott and many apparently did stay home — out of over 59 million eligible voters, only 28.9 million voted. Of those voting, some 3.7 million people either accidentally or intentionally voided their ballots, far beyond the amount seen in previous elections and suggesting some wanted none of the four candidates.

“That Ebrahim Raisi has risen to the presidency instead of being investigated for the crimes against humanity of murder, enforced disappearance and torture is a grim reminder that impunity reigns supreme in Iran,” Amnesty International’s Secretary-General Agnes Callamard said.

Previous President Hassan Rouhani, who in 2017 dismissed Raisi as an opponent in his re-election as someone only knowing about “executions and imprisoning” people, met the cleric Saturday and congratulated him.

Raisi’s election puts hard-liners firmly in control across the government as negotiations in Vienna continue to try to save a tattered deal meant to limit Iran’s nuclear program, at a time when Tehran is enriching uranium at its highest levels ever, though still short of weapons-grade levels. Tensions remain high with both the U.S. and Israel, which is believed to have carried out a series of attacks targeting Iranian nuclear sites as well as assassinating the scientist who created its military atomic program decades earlier.

I would suggest the election of Raisi moves the world one step closer to the prophesied “end times” war with Israel, the appearance of the Antichrist on the world scene, and the escalating persecution of both Jews and Christians. The good news is:

Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Luke 21:28

BIBLE PROPHECY UNFOLDING IN OUR DAY

Biblical Elam/Persia was where modern-day Iran is currently located. This is important in end times prophecy. In the video below, Nelson explains Daniel 8 and the end times significance of Iran. What about Javan? What country is now located where Javan was located? Turkey is the best choice geographically. Prophetically these two nations (old Elam and Javan, currently Iran and Turkey) are destined for a Shia/Sunni war.

You will get to know who the ram (Iran) and Goat (Turkey) of Daniel 8 are, and their roles in end times wars and rumours of wars. The video reveals events and wars that are yet to occur. This is an excellent video, one you need to share with your church group.

ONE REASON WHY JESUS RETURN IS IMMINENT

God’s Word tells us that one of the reasons Jesus will return is to save mankind from total destruction. The following report reveals that mankind has come to the brink, with weapons of mass destruction and godless leaders willing to use them.

According to a new report released this summer from the Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Task Force on National and Homeland Security, China now has the ability to conduct a massive EMP attack on the United States. China has created at least three types of weapons designed to attack electric grids… And these technologies (all stolen from the U.S.) would enable them to employ a surprise “Pearl Harbor” assault that could send Americans into a deadly blackout.
Dr. Peter Pry, the executive director of the EMP task force set up by the president, says China not only has these super-EMP weapons in its arsenal, it knows how to protect itself against an EMP attack, and has developed protocols to conduct a first-strike attack.

Also, the EMP Task Force’s June report reveals that China has built a network of satellites, highspeed missiles, and super-electromagnetic pulse weapons that could effectively meltdown the US electric grid, sizzle their critical communications infrastructure, and even take out the ability of the US aircraft carrier and military groups to respond.

Do you need more evidence we are in the “last days”. Prophecy is in my estimation conclusive proof the Bible is written by God albeit by His Holy Spirit inspired human authors. There are many end times prophecies and we are already seeing them unfold as “birth pangs” with increasing frequency and intensity.

TURKEY AND ISRAEL IN END TIMES PROPHECY

The battle lines have been drawn, Erdogan vs Israel. Is the Gog and Magog alliance of nations forming before our eyes? This video by Nelson Walters follows on from and supports my previous posts on Daniel 8, concerning the Ram (Iran) and the Goat (Turkey) conflict.

Does the 100 year old Lausanne Treaty expiring in 2023 hold the clue to the nations found in the Gog and Magog alliance of Ezekiel 38? Is the career of Tayyip Erdogan a match for that of Adolph Hitler? Is Erdogan using Hilter’s playbook to rise to power? Watch this Nelson Walters video to find out. You will see Erdogan has no concern for his people, they are pawns in his power play.

SUNNI-SHIA WAR NEXT PROPHETIC EVENT

The Great Sunni-Shia War (Daniel 8 Ram) will probably be the next prophetic event to take place. As such it will be an amazing opportunity to show an unbelieving world the truth of God’s Word and to present the good news of the Gospel of Christ. Mark Davidson, author of the book “Daniel Revisited – Discovering the Four Mid East Signs leading to the Antichrist” is my go to author on the signposts and I recommend his website http://www.foursignposts.com

The article, with the title “Mideast’s worst case: A ‘big war’ pitting Shia Muslims against Sunni,” shows that secular commentators are realizing what could potentially happen in the Middle East – a great Sunni-Shia War.

Hiwa Osman, an Iraqi Kurdish commentator, was even more blunt: “The whole region is braced for the big war, the war that has not yet happened, the Shiite-Sunni war.”

Up to now, two things drew Iran’s IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) to conquer and occupy the UAE. They were (1) its great oil production and reserves, comprising part of the one-fourth of world oil production that could be taken out by the IRGC, and (2) it is a relatively weak Muslim nation that would not stand in the way of the IRGC bringing its 1979 Shia Revolution to that nation. 

We now have a third reason for the IRGC to invade and occupy the UAE. And the reason was uttered recently by the man controlling one of the two powers (horns) of the Ram, that is, the supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Tuesday September 1st, as he spoke to the heads of education in Iran, he said,

“The UAE betrayed the world of Islam, Arab nations, regional countries and Palestine itself. Of course, this betrayal will not last long, but the stain of this infamy will remain on them forever.” [emphasis added]

First, the UAE is accused of betraying Islam and all the Arab nations. Since the UAE (a Muslim nation!) is fraternizing with what the IRGC names as the Little Satan (the USA being the Great Satan), the UAE must be invaded so the Revolution can cleanse whatever is going on in the UAE. It was already a rather “backslidden” Sunni nation, but now it is becoming a squeakier wheel.

Second is the use of the phrase, “of course.” Of course, it is obvious that the UAE must be dealt with. Of course we, the Iranian regime comprising the two horns of the ram—will run out and take care of the UAE when we take care of the entire Muslim Middle East! Of course the Second Signpost is coming.

Third, apparently the UAE’s transgressions will not last long. What does this mean? The world would take this as just another “idle” threat from the supreme leader. Of course, to the student of the Signposts, it may very well mean the Second Signpost is not very far away.

ARE PROPHESIED MIDDLE EAST WARS IMMINENT 2 ?

Revealed: US army’s devastating answer to Iran’s centrifuges at nuclear facility

The Military Ordinance Penetrator may spell the end of Iran’s nuclear ambitions if the Islamic Republic continues on its current path toward weapons grade uranium.

As Iran moves further away from the 2015 nuclear deal, most recently with its announcement last week that it will start developing  “all kinds” of centrifuge machines that can more quickly enrich uranium, the U.S. Army has a solution if the situation deteriorates into a military confrontation  – the MOP (Military Ordinance Penetrator).

The New York Times Magazine revealed last week in a special feature “The Secret History of the Push to Strike Iran,” that America had developed a plan 10 years ago under the Obama administration to cripple Iran’s nuclear capability through military means – including building a mock-up of a major Iranian nuclear site and then successfully blowing it up.

According to The New York Times piece, the Israelis wanted the MOP to deal with Fordow, but the Obama administration (and the Bush administration before it) refused to give it to them, as the U.S. wanted to discourage Israel from carrying out an attack on Iran, which it feared would drag it, too, into a military confrontation with the Islamic Republic.

But this didn’t stop the U.S. from developing its own plans to attack Iran’s nuclear program. Under the Obama administration, the U.S. built up its forces in the Gulf region in preparation for a possible Israel pre-emptive strike.

It also built a replica Fordow in the southwestern U.S. and tested its MOP. In order to show that America was serious about confronting Iran, (and to convince Israel it didn’t have to) then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta invited Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak to see a video test of the 30,000-pound weapon.

Last May, the U.S. released a video of the MOP in action (it’s now known if this was the same video shown to Barak).

But the video was released the very same month that the Trump administration announced its decision to leave the 2015 nuclear agreement, opening the possibility that the video was meant as a message to Iran.

DANIEL 8 & THE NEXT TWO GREAT WARS

In my recent post ANTICHRIST REVEALED – MAHDI, I mentioned the next two wars in the Middle East prophesied in Daniel 8. My information was extracted largely from Mark Davidson’s book, Iran’s Great Invasion but I have since watched Joel Richardson’s video. Daniel 8 & The Next Great Wars. I think you will appreciate seeing Joel expound the Scriptures and history relating to these two “last days” wars. Joel is a very humble man as you will see from his presentation. I met both Joel and Mark at the Understanding the Times Conference in Tyler Texas in July. Both were speakers at that conference. Joel was the keynote speaker. Since then, I have been following Joel’s weekly video “The Underground”.
