Israel has attacked Iran with the help of Saudi Arabia in their first joint air strike on Iranian forces at Abu Kamal on the Syrian border with Iraq. Reports state there has been 100 Iranian soldiers killed and several hundred injured. This is a major escalation following the attacks on the Saudi Oil Fields n that past few days. The raid was also supported by American refueling tanker aircraft. We now await the Iranian response to this attack, as the Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif vowed 'all out war' if they were attacked.
Convergence of Events
Dear Brothers and sisters in Christ,
As we are experiencing the onslaught of unrelenting spiritual warfare and attacks on nearly every Christian home, we should take the fight to the enemy through prayer and the power of Jesus, as we know that satan has already been defeated! We should also take comfort in knowing that our redemption is drawing near! This month has a number of converging events which point to the setting up and fulfillment of post rapture prophecies, surely pointing to the fact that our catching away is closer still!
When we look at these coming events and merge them with the earthquakes, natural disasters, political and social instability worldwide, threat of economic collapse, military tensions between Israel Iran, Lebanon, Russia, China, USA, UK & Iran (wars and rumors of wars) we would seem to have the perfect storm brewing.
We however, take comfort in the fact that we are not appointed to God's wrath through the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for us on the cross. We are also prepared, as scripture has readied us for these days, we are not in darkness, we are children of light. Those who have rejected the truth are in darkness and do not see what is coming, it is our commission to occupy and redeem the time we have left, to share the Gospel and win as many to Christ as we can - "Maranatha" ("Our Lord comes" or "our Lord is coming")
