Hi, Tovey. You said,

From this perspective, Ezekiel 38-39 is not only being executed as we write these things, but in an exquisitely short period of time, the heat of its full portent will unfold and the subliminal things that are now running in the back ground will be in full display. Every single nation (goyim) you mentioned and others set up for the fray are being gathered in their planned participation of teh next attempt to partition Israel per teh 'Palestinian' initiative to have the UN authorize a 'Palestinian' takeover. This is shaping up to be the political plutonium core on the event horizon. So I cannot push this pause button.

Afterthought before pushing the send button- there is a reason Iran is now taking up against ISIS/ISIL/IS......think about it......

DEBKA was more explicit about where we are right now (minus prophetic references):

"The White House said on Thursday that it was reconsidering US support for Israel at the UN because in the past its government had been committed to a two-state solution. The spokesman described the Israeli leaders' tactics in the final campaign push as "cynical and divisive.""

I've said in the past, that the only thing standing in the way of a UN invasion of Israel (Zech. 14 and Rev. 19) has been the UN veto of such actions in the UN Security Council. Now Mr. Obama (yemach shmo) has announced, almost explicitly, his intention to withold that veto. I cannot overemphasize how serious this is.

Let me put it this way: Do you remember the Windows 95 days? how downloads would announce "5 min. left", then "13 min. left", then "1 hr. 30 min. left", then "10 min. left", then "download complete" a second later? That's how I feel in the present day. For a while, it seemed that Obama was too incompetent to be the boasting "little horn" of the beast that would lead the last battle. As I have said, the Turkish invasion had to come first (because of the 7 years that would follow before the last battle); but I am no longer sure that Obama will not try to pull off a coup and stick around 7 years after his term is due to expire -- the man is that evil and that treacherous. At any rate, the "download" clock to the final battle seems to be jerking back and forth.

We'll see how the next few months turn out; but I would not be surprized at all, if Turkey were to attack on Israel this year. Turkey is certainly willing, as are Iran, Sudan and Libya. I don't dare predict the order of battle, but the following seems very plausible: (1) Iran provokes an Israeli strike, either by unveiling a nuclear weapon capability or by ordering a Syrian or Hizbullah attack on Israel; (2) Israel responds, to remove the existential threat, and (3) Turkey attacks Israel, presumably because of Israel's "aggression" against "sisterly" Iran.

Concerning the Zech. 14 attack, I have been noticing a nuclear arms race between China, India and Pakistan; and talk of Pakistan supplying Saudi Arabia with nukes and missiles. Part of the South Asian arms race, is the deploying by China and India of nuclear submarines in Middle Eastern waters, and Pakistan's determination to deploy nukes at sea as well (probably initially on surface vessels). Turkey also has several dozen nukes at its disposal, and the US, Russia, the UK and France all have nukes deployed in submarines that could be deployed anywhere in the world. This all amounts to a tinderbox waiting for a spark. The world today is gravely in danger of an accidental worldwide nuclear cataclysm -- the very thing prophesied in Zech. 14. Israel could set the spark off with a "Samson" response to the NATO/ UN attack on it, or some other country or terrorist group could purposely or accidentally set off a warhead. The response would be the same in any case: a near-instantaneous exchange of the world's arsenals.

Again, the timing: Israel's war with Iran, and an immediately following Turkish attack, could happen this year (especially if the nuclear talks go suddenly very sour, which they could well do). The final battle could happen seven years after this. Those "could"s are rather high probablilities. On the other hand, God is in control of Obama, Erdogan and everyone else: These things could be held off for as much as 20 years or so; but that would require a miracle -- or, more likely, several miracles.

We have nine known nuclear powers today, two of which (Pakistan and North Korea) are fragile states that could descend into anarchy on short notice. Another fragile state (Iran) could conceivably obtain this capability within a year. Besides this, there is such an edginess in places like Europe, East Asia and the Middle East, that others might also go nuclear in short order: South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt; and the Russians have hinted that they will deploy nukes in Venezuela or Cuba. Even with the coolest heads in power across the globe, this is a dangerous situation; but having a delusional, pig-headed US President shooting from the hip has made this a very scary world to live in.

Thank you for posting, brother. I was afraid that nobody might notice what is going on.

Wouldn't it be nice, if we could fix this situation? We cannot. We are on spaceship earth together, a spaceship captained by lunatics; and no mutiny is likely to yield a less ominous a scenario. Messiah and Judgment are both at the gates. It's time to choose -- and to pray.

Shalom shalom :-)
