THANK YOU, dear Tec (peace to you, luvee!) - I KNEW "something " wasn't "right," with that claim. It was like hearing a strongly off-key "note" as I was reading; just didn't "ring true"! Which is why I didn't know "how" to comment.

Dear ones (peace to you all!), we need to be careful and listen to see if the Master corroborates something in the media when it comes to the whole US-Israel-Iran thing. These days Washington is putting out a LOT of lies and about a LOT of people and issues. Given COVID, a good portion of the US media is manufacturing news just to stay in business.

Not only would it be utterly stupid... for ANYONE and ANY country to publicly threaten the life of a US current or former President... but suicide. Letting the world THINK you were responsible is far, far different than letting them KNOW you were.. and in advance. Iranians are NOT stupid - they, and particularly their women, are HIGHLY educated.

Remember, Israel launches the preemptive strike. I don't put it past a certain "world leader" and his yes-men to throw something like this out there so as to create not just sympathy for himself but also to create a red herring that would allow some kind of attack. In that light, a rumor might be what pulls Israel's trigger finger.

None of us can doubt, though, that tensions are mounting and so we should stay awake. We should also make sure we have oil in our lamps.

Again, peace to you all and to your dear households!

Your servant, sister and a slave of Christ,

Shel

Thank you for finding that. I clicked on all the links in the article and googled it for accuracy. Very hard to believe anything you read anymore.

Definitely something to make some folks nervous about!

Tensions are rising for sure.

Praise to JAH and Christ they are in control and NOT nervous or anxious about anything, nor should we!

Peace to you all, as our Lord Jaheshua and Father Jah gives...

The Prime Minister of Israel stated this a short time ago.....

“There is no other explanation except for the continued realization of Iran’s intention to manufacture nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said. “I reiterate: Israel will not allow Iran to manufacture nuclear weapons.”

This came after Iran announced it had resumed 20 percent uranium enrichment. Experts said this development puts Tehran one step closer to enrich uranium at 90 percent, which is required to produce a nuclear weapon.

Interesting, dear C&D (peace to you, little brother!).

That comment might indeed be a basis for the preemptive strike. We shall see.

Peace to you and your dear household!

Your servant, sister, and a slave of Christ,

Shel

Greetings and peace to you all and to your dear households!

You may want to reread my post 4778 above (page 6) after you view and read what's on the following webpages:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/nation.com.pk/08-Jan-2021/iran-s-revolutionary-guards-unveil-underground-missile-base-near-persian-gulf-coast-photos-video%3fversion=amp

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.aljazeera.com/amp/news/2021/1/8/iran-revolutionary-guards-unveil-missile-base-amid-us-tensions

https://www.tehrantimes.com/news/456756/IRGC-unveils-new-underground-missile-base-on-Persian-Gulf-coast

We are now in 2021, dear ones. And it could be that what happened in Wash. DC the day before yesterday is just the beginning of perhaps many more "unprecedented" events to occur. In the US... and the world. We'll have wait and see.

In the meantime... try not to get caught sleeping?

May the undeserved kindness and mercy of our dear Father, JaH, and the love and mercy of our dear Lord, JaH'eShua, he who is the Holy One of Israel and Holy Spirit, be upon you ALL!

Your servant, sister, and a slave of Christ,

Shel

Very very interesting my sister, peace to you and your household,

It is unfolding just as our Lord has shared with us. How priviledged we are as a people.
Thank you for sharing. 2021 is starting off with some crazy stuff.

Definitely a time to stay awake, alert, eyes and ears open towards JAHehsuas voice.


Peace to you all,
your sister and servant of JAHeshua, The Holy One and chosen of JAH,
kim

Peace to you all!


Thank you for posting those Shelby! I remember seeing them that morning, remembering that this was along the Euphrates.

I found the following article, though I find it a bit strange that it is not being more widely reported, because it seems like a big step and big accusation to me:

https://www.timesofisrael.com/pompeo-al ... m-accords/


The Houthi rebels (remember the US claims them to be a proxy of Iran) are also to be declared a terrorist organization on Nov 19 (according to Pompeo at least). That and then this (making Iran the new 'al-queda' or at least the harbinger of al-queda', even if untrue... remember that 9-11 attackers came mostly from Saudi Arabia), seem like major steps to me. Enough to make a return to the nuke deal (or the easing of sanctions) more difficult. And Iran seems pretty serious about greater enrichment and centrifuges, and kick out the IAEA inspectors, if sanctions are not lifted by Feb 21. And we know where Netanyahu (and others) stand on those things.


Lots of distractions out there (I know), and maybe this is just one more, but it caught my eye, so I am sharing it.





Peace and love to you all, and to your households,
your servant and sister and a fellow slave of Christ,
tammy

VERY interesting article, dear Tams (peace to you, luvee!). Let's take a looksee:

Quote:
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday accused Iran of harboring al-Qaeda, saying the country has become a “home base” for the terror group.

In a speech a week before leaving office, Pompeo confirmed a November New York Times report that al-Qaeda’s second-in-command was killed in Tehran over the last summer. The report said Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, who used the nom de guerre Abu Muhammad al-Masri, was killed by Israeli agents at the behest of the US.
Abdullah was wanted for his alleged role in planning the devastating attacks on two US embassies in Africa in 1998 and a 2002 attack on an Israeli-owned hotel in Kenya.


Sounds fishy, to me. Why? Someone was killed in TEHRAN? By ISRAEL? And Iran does nothing about it? Okay, they haven't taken action against the assassination of Qassem Soleimani in Bagdad, but that was done in Iraq on Iraqi soil. But an assassination in Tehran, on Iranian soil? By ISRAEL? Yeah... no. Not buying. Not buying that the person was killed at the behest of the U.S., either. Though enemies at one time, Isis and Al-Qaeda eventually began working together. And Iran is pro-Syria and so anti-Isis. And, per US Intelligence, Pompeo's assertions are entirely false (https://foreignpolicy.com/2019/06/24/u- ... eda-links/).

Back to the article:

Quote:
Iran denied the report of the Israeli assassination and Pompeo didn’t say who was behind the targeted killing in his remarks to the National Press Club.


Okay, yeah, but Iran's denial isn't enough to convince me they're not culpable. What DOES convince me is this (from the article):

Quote:
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif dismissed Pompeo’s allegations and pointed to US ties with Saudi Arabia.

“No one is fooled,” Zarif tweeted. “All 9/11 terrorists came” from Pompeo’s “favorite” Middle East “destinations” he added. “NONE from Iran.”


Which is ABSOLUTELY true!

And this, by the article's author:

Quote:
It’s unclear why Iran would harbor al-Qaeda operatives. Iran is a Shiite state, and has fought with [meaning, has had conflicts with] al-Qaeda, a Sunni jihadist organization. Experts told The New York Times that Iran may hold al-Qaeda members to prevent attacks in Iran, or to allow them to conduct operations against the US.

Iran cooperates with the Gaza-based Sunni terror groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.


Unfortunately, there are humans who, like those who scream and rip their hair out at the term "socialism" without bothering to research what it means (they assume it means governments like Russia, China, Cuba, Vietnam, North Korea, etc., where the government controls everyone and everything... vs. REAL socialist countries like Norway, Denmark, Sweden, etc., where EVERYONE lives well! I digress.)... who will gulp down the farce of an Iranian-Al Qaeda partnership without out at least researching the history (if not outright remembering it).

I don't share these perceptions to entice ANYONE to get involved in this world's politics or to take sides. I share it so that WE stay within the TRUTH and not let the world's propaganda (and especially that of a certain country most of us reside in) sway us to look in the wrong direction - away from truth and so risk looking away from Christ - so as to lull us to sleep. Because if so, we could possible miss what this next part might usher in:

Quote:
The US and Iran have engaged in an ongoing exchange in recent weeks as the Trump administration draws to a close and Iran marked the one-year anniversary of Soleimani’s killing.

The back and forth has included threats, military maneuvers, legal action and escalating Iranian violations of the nuclear deal.


In the meantime, things in Israel seen to be pretty quiet, right now. A sense of security? Or... the "calm" before the "storm"?

I don't think Iran is "our" enemy, per se, dear ones. Yes, as Muslims they very well may want to put us on Islamic Sharia law... maybe. But they are no more... and no less... our enemy than all of the other players. Trust me: when it all comes down, that we are "Americans," or "Canadians," or "British," or whatever, isn't going to matter ONE whit. To ANY of these.

And, sadly, do NOT be fooled: it isn't going to matter either that we are christians... to any of this world's (so-called) "christians." Indeed, brother... will deliver up brother.

So, while the politics are not our concerns, what political entities (governments) and their proponents "do" is of some interest in helping us discern where we might be in the stream of time.

BTW - Now isn't the time to be asking questions. That time has passed. Now... is the time to being putting into practice the Master's words as to "all the things I told you." We can look for signs and worry about dates and times, etc., but none of that will matter. Because the coming is "as a thief" and so we will not know "when." All we can do is stay awake... and DO the things he told us... while we wait for him.

May the undeserved kindness and mercy of our God and Father, JAH, Who Breathes, and the love and mercy of His Son and King, our dear, dear Lord, JAH'ESHUA, the Holy One of Israel and Holy Spirit, be upon you ALL and upon your dear households... to time indefinite.

Yes, and thank you for sharing that analysis for the reasons you did. And for this:

Thanks for sharing that, dead C&DL (and peace to you and your household, luvee!).

To further the thought:

Quote:
"Our nuclear program is peaceful and the fatwa by the supreme leader has forbidden nuclear weapons, but if they push Iran in that direction, then it wouldn’t be Iran’s fault but those who pushed it,” Alavi was quoted as saying.


https://apnews.com/article/iran-iran-nu ... 49131d73d8

Lots of stuff "happening" in the US. Thing is... the US is not the entire world. Perhaps Mr. Trump gave Mr. Netanyahu a sense of security/comraderie that is no longer there? The void can make for even more "twitchy" trigger fingers.

Stay AWAKE, dear ones. That doesn't mean get all involved in the world's affairs but rather realize this is like a 3-ring circus: focus too much on what's going on in one ring... and you might miss the greater entertainment in one of the other rings.

Reminds me of why I HATE 3-ring circuses - LOLOLOL!

Peace... as our dear Lord, Master, Savior, Teacher, Guide, Instructor, Redeemer, and King... JaH'eShua, the Holy One of Israel, Holy Spirit, and Son of our great Father, JaH, who is the MOST Holy Spirit... gives it... to you ALL and to your dear, dear households!

Your servant, sister, and a slave of Christ,

Shel
