Hi, Tovey

Let me try to piece this together...

"...we are told the Candidate thinks he would make a good third term officiate, the Constitution notwithstanding...."

That's odd... let me look this up... Read it yourself.

Seeing that Obama's popularity rating is still negative, it's unlikely that he will get the required 75% vote in Congress. Of course, anything can happen during the next 17 months. Coup? God knows -- literally.

You continued,

We could engage in such speculation were it not for the circumstances that the potential implosion that would send the northern alliance south is the greater speculation...

The "Northern Alliance... Ah -- you mean Turkey-Iran, with help from Sudan and Libya as per Ezekiel 38-39 (If you wish, you may add Russia; but I don't read it that way). I've been watching and waiting, but so far I haven't seen a thaw between Iran and Turkey. You said,

With the Iranian Revolutionary Regime now in the perfect position to dictate its ultimate terms in the region, one cannot help but wonder how much is really prepared for their next move, to back the 'Palestinain' postion of overtaking Israel.

I don't think they're in a perfect position. They managed to break the sanctions regime against them, so that we can't reinstate them. This was blatant malice by Obama against the Jews of Israel. God will repay him, in His own time.

I haven't seen any Da'esh attacks on the Turks lately, nor any serious Turk attacks on them; so at the moment, we can assume they're allies; and Iran-Assad-Hizbullah is their enemy. The US, of course, is weak and ineffectual as usual. It has no viabld policy in Iraq-Syria-Lebanon; so I just expect more confusion there in the near future.

the implied loss of an American veto to the 'Palestinian' petition to the United Nations

From a prophetic perspective, this is more imprtant than the Iran deal. The following comes to mind:

the day of Christ is at hand.
[3] Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
[4] Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
[5] Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
[6] And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
[7] For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
[8] And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

I don't know who Paul had in mind here, who was "letting"; but the context speaks of that one as restraining the revelation of "That Wicked" -- presumably the "beast" or "false prophet". Up until now, the US has almost single-handedly restrained the hand of the UN from attacking Israel. If the next US President buillds on Obama's anti-Israel stance, we can expect a UNSC endorsement of a NATO-based attack on Israel. This would be Zechariah 14. The Turkish attack of Ezekiel 38-39 would come earlier, since at least seven years would have to elapse between it and Zech. 14. Right now, it is 9 years and five months until the legal end of the next US President's term in office, Counting the last half of the Ezekiel "seven years" as the 3½ year widespread persecution of God's people, that leaves some 6 years until the "Son of Perdition" is revealed -- in perhaps Summer, 2021; but note that this is the soonest date. "Armageddon I" would therefore happen no sooner than Winter 2024/25. I'll be in my late 70s then, Lord willing.

Note that Winter 2024/25 would be the legal time that our next President's successor is sworn in. If these things come down at that time, I expect Obama's successor to usurp power through some sort of expedient.

That makes the upcoming election more interesting. Will Hillary be the one? Donald Trump? Jeb Bush? some surprize candidate? If one of them turns out to be the beast, I dare say that few will recognize the fact.
