Just One Trigger Finger Can Do It

I haven't posted anything from Jerry Golden lately but his latest report is very interesting and provides a nice bookend for yesterday's post about the race towards the last events which many of us believe will lead into the Tribulation.

"Just One Trigger Finger Can Do It"

With Hezbollah, Hamas, Lebanon, Syria, and Iran all on the highest alert, and all five literally sitting a few hundred yards apart -staring at each other with loaded guns - it will only take one trigger happy soldier to plunge this whole planet into the Third World War. Not to mention the political unrest in Iran which is about to upset the plans of Ahmadinejad. He believes that he has been called by his 'god' to reveal the 12th Imam who will establish Islamic global control after a catastrophic war from which Persia apparently emerges victorious. Ahmadinejad desperately wants this war to begin - and soon.

Then, when we look at the conditions now developing around the Obama administration, Barack may find war an attractive option at this time as well? God only knows what collaborations he has entered into with the Islamic community at large. One thing is obvious though - he has gone out of his way to accommodate them whilst turning his back on the civilized western world.

When we take a closer look at what is happening in and near Iran [mostly in the Straits of Hormuz and the Gulf of Oman] we see once again the gathering of many American warships. This includes the USS Truman aircraft carrier with over 6,000 Marines aboard. She is accompanied by a fleet which includes the USS Normandy, a missile cruiser, and the USS Oscar Austin a missile destroyer. We have been told that the USS Truman doesn't go anywhere without being protected by at least two nuclear subs. There are other vessels in the area as well; the USS Churchill and the USS Peieliu. They are stationed in the Arabian Sea and have many marines aboard. These are just the ones we know about!

The Iranians possess many torpedo and missile boats and they have recently purchased the British "Bladerunner" speedboat which has a top speed in excess of 60 MPH. What worries the USS Truman is that these vessels are armed with the Russian Shkval torpedoes, believed to be the fastest in the world with speeds of 360 MPH. They would be impossible to destroy once fired. To add to this scenario, Iran has now sent out four Ghadir type mini-subs into the area.

As we have reported over the past few weeks, Israel is now believed to have at least two submarines and two warships located somewhere near the Iranian coast. What is not known is how many, if any, Russian subs are in that area also. We do know that they have been seen docking along the Syrian coast with aircraft carriers also unloading military gear for Hezbollah and the Lebanese Army. I believe the "Flotillas" now trying to break the Gaza blockade are nothing but an organized effort to draw attention away from the Persian Gulf and what is happening there at present..

The Russians, not surprisingly, have sided with Iran and have now installed the S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to make sure they can defend themselves against any Israeli air attack.

The USA has just struck a deal with the Saudis to deliver 84 more F-15 fighter Jets. Egypt is sitting there quietly and has also been armed by the US with everything needed for the coming war with Israel. Bashar Assad of Syria has made the statement many times over the past few months that war is the only thing Israel understands, and that Syria is now ready with tens of thousands of Missiles tipped with chemical warheads. Hezbollah now boast that they have over 50,000 missiles, and many of them are long-range which can, and will, hit every part of Israel. It is even known that Syria has sent scuds into Lebanon to Hezbollah.

So you see when we shout "wolf", "Wolf", it is not that the Wolf isn't showing his ugly teeth. We see him alright! And it seems that as he circles us he is getting bolder every day. I think the big question now for Israel and the US is; have they waited too long?

With all of the above I daily awaken with an urgency to prepare to save Jewish lives and know God has given us the way. Still many things need to be done and God willing we will be ready to go into action very soon. The biggest thing on our agenda these days is emergency communications that will be needed when conventional communications fail us. The single largest expense we are facing is the purchase of the larger boat. All the travels and maintenance are very costly. We do everything we can to hold the cost down - but some things simply have to be done in order to gain the cooperation necessary in the future. I am asking each of you who are called to be with the us to pray about your part in this ministry, and simply ask God what it is He would have you do.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem for our son Joel and al the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in it.

Shalom, Jerry Golden
