“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” (Matthew 24:6-8)
Jesus warned us that in the End Times we would face both wars and rumors of wars. As we look across the geopolitical landscape today, we can identify several areas that seem ready to explode at almost any time. We’ll talk about two of them today – the situation between Israel & Iran. And the Chinese preparing to move against Taiwan, which was once Nationalist China – but now considered by the Chinese Communist Party to be a breakaway province of the mainland. Taiwan has always had the support of its’ American ally.
ISRAEL-v-IRAN – Headline in World Israel News: “IDF prepares to attack Iranian nuclear reactor.” From the story: “The IDF is in constant preparations for an attack on Iran’s nuclear program, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi stated, ‘to provide an effective and timely military response.’….Iran is the ‘driving force’ that finances and arms terror groups throughout the region. Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip, Shia militias in Syria, Houthi rebels in Yemen, and militias in Iraq are all financed and supported by the Islamic Republic of Iran.” This was actually admitted to by Maj Gen Gholam Ali Rashid, a top Revolutionary Guard Corps Commander.[i]
For its’ part, Iran has stated that “war with Israel has already begun.” Citing, “attacks that were intended to destroy our nuclear program,” a foreign ministry official took the Israeli’s to task. He also blamed them for “severely” harming their civilian research system. Zero Hedge weighed in. The said the spokesman is “no doubt referencing the prior Natanz nuclear facility sabotage attack – now widely believed an act of covert espionage by Israel (likely via cyberattack) – as well as the brazen assassination outside of Tehran of top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizade by a ‘remote controlled gun.’ There’s also the near weekly Israeli attacks on Syria, which Tel Aviv says is part of campaign to disrupt Iranian and Hezbollah operations there.” The attacks seem to be ongoing as Israel continues to make moves to neutralize the emerging Iranian threat. On September 27, an explosion occurred at a secret Iranian missile base.[ii] The Biden Regime has made moves to reinstate Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran that allows them to more freely enrich uranium speeding up the timeline for building home-grown nuclear weapons. It is generally believed that Iran has managed to acquire a small number of nukes ‘off-the-shelf’ when the former Soviet Union broke up.
IRAN -v-TAIWAN (& US & ALLIES) – The Global Times is the mouthpiece of the CCP, considered almost an official arm of the Chinese government. They recently warned that World War III could break out “at any time.” The Global Times said, “that ‘collusion’ between the US and Taiwan was now so ‘audacious’ that the situation ‘has almost lost any room for maneuver, teetering on the edge of a face-off.’…. Almost 150 Chinese warplanes have breached Taiwan’s airspace since Friday, including 56 jets on Monday in a dramatic escalation of Chinese aggression against the self-governing island democracy.” Biden has said, “I’ve spoken with Xi about Taiwan. We agree…we’ll abide by the Taiwan agreement.” But the content of those talks has not been revealed. The US has just conducted drills in that region with 5 allies. Two US carriers were joined by the British carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth (‘Big Lizzie’) and a Japanese helicopter destroyer. Taiwan is preparing for war and calling on it’s allies to stick with them.[iii] [iv]
