The Telegraph reports:
Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.
Western leaders are convinced that Iran will retaliate to any attack by attempting to mine or blockade the shipping lane through which passes around 18 million barrels of oil every day, approximately 35 per cent of the world’s petroleum traded by sea.
A blockade would have a catastrophic effect on the fragile economies of Britain, Europe the United States and Japan, all of which rely heavily on oil and gas supplies from the Gulf.
The Strait of Hormuz is one of the world’s most congested international waterways. It is only 21 miles wide at its narrowest point and is bordered by the Iranian coast to the north and the United Arab Emirates to the south.
In preparation for any pre-emptive or retaliatory action by Iran, warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will today begin an annual 12-day exercise.
There’s a storm brewing on the horizon and it seems like only some Christians are noticing. 25 Nations are being represented in the Middle East, ready for battle, but everyone sees it as a harmless exercise. I am sure that there is more to it than meets the eye.
Friends, as most of you knows, I do not believe in a 7 year tribulation as the Bible never speaks of a 7 year trib. I believe that the AoD will start of the final 3.5 years trib and I believe the AoD is the next big event on the prophetic calender. I also believe that the AoD has got much to do about Jerusalem surrounded by armies combined with the rise of the man of sin. That is why news about 25 armies/navies close to Israel is huge.
The day is gonna come when the world is going to turn against Israel. They will see Israel as the problem and the solution will be to neutralize her. These armies will somehow march into Israel, surround Jerusalem and their presence will not be good news for the Jews, but they will have to flee or die.
If I can speculate a bit I will say the odds are good for a military strike against the Iranian nuclear plants. This will destabilize the Middle East and plunge it into war. The flow of oil will be disrupted which in turn will shake the already fragile world economy. As oil and the economy is much more important than Israel, these 25+ nations will try to stop the war by moving on Israel. Maybe they will do it under an umbrella of peace, just to stop Israel from attacking the Muslim nations and to keep the Muslim nations happy. The AC will also come into Jerusalem as a negotiator. But then, while the armies are in Israel, all hell breaks loose and they start killing the Jews and the Jews must flee.
These are my thoughts and it is most probably wrong. It is just a possible way I see prophecy moving forward. Just stay prepared friends. We do not have long to wait.
Luk 21:20-33 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring. Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
