Trump and Netanyahu share a kiss on West Bank wall mural
BETHLEHEM, West Bank (Reuters) -
Another Donald Trump mural believed to be the work of Australian graffiti artist Lushsux has popped up on Israel’s barrier in the occupied West Bank, this time depicting the U.S. president sharing a kiss with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Israel is weighing a request for “advanced systems” that would enable a preemptive strike on Iran should intelligence show Tehran has crossed the nuclear enrichment threshold needed to create a bomb, sources here tell Breaking Defense.


The Master has never lied to me.

Peace to you and thank you for sharing this, dear Mom!

Your servant, sister, and a slave of Christ,

Shel

Indeed, dear HTBO (peace to you, luv!):

Quote:
“There is no justification for this attack, which follows a pattern of attacks and other belligerent behavior. These actions threaten freedom of navigation through this crucial waterway, international shipping and commerce, and the lives of those on the vessels involved,” Blinken said.


Quote:
“We believe this attack was deliberate, targeted, and a clear violation of international law by Iran. UK assessments have concluded that it is highly likely that Iran attacked the MV Mercer Street in international waters off Oman on 29 July using one or more Unmanned Aerial Vehicles,” Raab said in a statement.


Regarding the bolded statements, above, ya'll might recall:

Quote:
Trump:[b] "Now the Strait of Hormuz can open" (the Strait is not closed... yet);

[b]Man
(In response to Trump's thumping himself on the back): "This is a historic time, Mr. President. You're the only one who can ensure that Iran NEVER has a nuclear weapon."

... If you recall, I shared with you what the Master revealed to me was the main "issue" in the region: the Shaat al-Arab (I'll get to that in a bit). Currently, in order for UAE, Iraqi, and Kuwaiti oil to leave the Persian Gulf it must navigate through the Strait of Hormuz. The Strait, the western-side land of which is UAE and the eastern-side land of which is Oman, however, isn't owned and controlled by the UAE and Oman - It is owned and controlled by IRAN and Oman. This is because these two countries have the WATER RIGHTS as the Strait leads from the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman into the Arabian Sea (not sure why the UAE doesn't export oil directly to the Arabian Sea at some point south of the Strait... or perhaps they do).

Last year, Iran threatened to "close" the Strait. That would mean that Iraq and Kuwait couldn't export oil given that 25% of the world's crude oil comes through the Strait, that would be a big deal. But there's more. There is the Shaat al-Arab, which is a 124-mile stretch of the confluence of the Tigris... and Euphrates... Rivers that makes up the border between Iraq and Iran. It is thought that this river (the Shaat al-Arab or Arvand Rud, as it's called by the Iranians) formed relatively recently in geologic time, with the Tigris and Euphrates originally emptying into the Persian Gulf via a channel further to the west. But rivers change course over time and so NOW the Iraq-Iran border consists of these 124 miles of the Euphrates before it empties into the Persian Gulf (which is also theirs)!

https://xjwsforchrist.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3356&p=54571&hilit=Strait#p54571


and...

Quote:
And from where do the four winds come?

".. I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, 'Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.'” Revelation 7:1-3

“Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”
Revelation 9:14

Now, many are looking for something to occur in Iraq, Syria, or even TURKEY, because the lion's share of the Euphrates runs through those countries. But they forget about the 124-mile stretch that is the Shaat al-Arab! True, it's called the Swift River/Arvard Rud TODAY, but it was the "Euphrates" when John wrote the Revelation (and Iran is actually "Persia" and although it was the Persians who delivered Judah from Babylonian exile early in Daniel's day (2 Chronicles 36:23), at some point Persia stood in opposition to the Master (Daniel 10:13, 20).

But here's the thing: the all-wise and knowing Mr. Trump (who OH SO often gets things wrong) not only misspoke when he said that the Strait of Hormuz "can open" (it's not closed, per se) but he and those who have their faith in his ability to ensure that Iran "NEVER" has a nuclear weapon are entirely overlooking the area of the Shaat al-Arab. Now, of course, some would say, "They checked all over Iran and there's no nuclear weapons (being built)." Really?

On July 5, 2020, Alireza Tangsiri, a Navy Commander for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a branch of the Iranian Armed Forces, maintained that:

Quote: “...the IRGC Navy is present everywhere in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, in every place that the enemy would not even think about… All of our coasts are armed and the underground [missile] cities of the Army and the IRGC with various defense utilities have scattered over the entire southern coasts”. https://www.crisisgroup.org/trigger-lis%20...%20nts/hormuz


Is that truly the issue, though, non-Iranian vessels passing through the Shaat al-Arab? The article states:

Quote:
“Iran must end such attacks, and vessels must be allowed to navigate freely in accordance with international law. The UK is working with our international partners on a concerted response to this unacceptable attack,” he added.


Why is Iran attacking? Because they believe they are owed tolls for ships passing through their waters. The information in these two articles hold some insight:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/ellenrwald/2019/07/08/3-reasons-iran-cant-put-a-toll-on-the-strait-of-hormuz/?sh=41a5cb3075ff

https://www.ejiltalk.org/how-international-law-restricts-the-use-of-military-force-in-hormuz/

Given the great amount of tension in the area, the high probability of Iranian nuclear weapons (in light of Israeli and US nuclear capabilities), the increased "friendliness" between Israel and the UAE and Kuwait (who need their ships to get through the Strait) and so the US... I have no problem seeing the fulfilment of Revelation 9:14 playing out in this struggle. More than that, the Master has never lied to me and I have no reason to believe he has as to this issue.

Peace to you all and to your dear households!

Your servant, sister, and a slave of Christ,

Shel

… in “a worst-case breakout estimate” Tehran could have enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon in a month.
After three months, the report said, Iran could have enough enriched uranium for two weapons; after five months, for three.


Thank you for sharing the article dear HTBO and peace to you all,
And yes, a whole lot going on!

Peace, love and may JAHs mercy be upon us all,
kim

Thanks for sharing that link, dear HTBO (and peace to you)!

I don't think we're at the Euphrates drying up point in (Revelation 16:12), yet, though. Too many other "bowls" not manifest, yet. And, right now, that is the part of the river in Syria (vs. in Iraq/Iran and nearer to Saudi Arabia).

When Revelation 16:12 occurs, most probably it'll have something to do with either the drying up of the Shaat-Al-Arab/Avand Rud part of the river that leads into the Persian Gulf. Which makes total sense if a nuclear event occurs from there and either somehow backfires... or someone gets a responding nuclear shot off back to that location.

We'll have to wait and see (which we will... if not from here then from the Kingdom).

Again, peace to you and to your dear household!

Your servant, sister, and a slave of Christ,

Shel

Yes I figured as much after I went back and read Rev 16 again. I just thought it was an interesting article to share. Maybe they will get some much needed rain as we need it too here in California!
