War Preparations Continue

It seems like every week or so recently, we get more updates like the ones seen below:

Iran smuggled hundreds of rockets to Gaza in 2010

Iran smuggled into the Gaza Strip about 1,000 mortar shells, hundreds of shortrange rockets and a few dozen advanced anti-tank missiles over the past year, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) revealed on Thursday.

In a report summing up 2010, the Shin Bet said that Iran continued to serve as Hamas’s dominant supplier of weaponry throughout the past year, using smuggling routes in Sudan and Sinai. It was also instrumental in funding the training of Hamas operatives in Lebanon and Syria.

And look who else is involved from the Gog-MaGog coalition:

Last week, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi revealed that two weeks ago, a Russianmade Kornet anti-tank missile – one of the most sophisticated in the world – hit an Israeli Merkava tank and succeeded in penetrating its hull.

As a result, the IDF has decided to deploy Battalion 9 of the 401st Armored Brigade along the Gaza border, since its tanks are equipped with the Trophy active protection antitank missile defense system.

More news involving Iran:

WikiLeaks: Iran can attack Israel within 10-12 minutes

IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi said that Iran has over 300 missiles that could reach Israel within 10-12 minutes, according to cables released by WikiLeaks on Sunday.

Ashkenazi told the delegation that "rocket threat against Israel is more serious than ever. Therefore, Israel has a strong emphasis on missile defense."

He added that although the Iranian threat is serious, the threat from Hamas and Hizbullah, which are funded by Iran, is most acute. Their rockets are more accurate than Iran's, due to their proximity to Israel.

According to the cables, Ashkenazi said that Hizbullah has over 40,000 rockets, most of which can reach any point within Israel, and Hamas has the ability to strike Tel Aviv.

Disruption of daily life in Tel Aviv is a major goal of Hizbullah and Hamas, and their weapons stockpiles indicated to the IDF that they are aiming for a lengthy conflict with Israel in which they plan to send a "massive number" of rockets into Israel daily.

As mentioned before, this arms build-up is unprecedented and it shows no signs of slowing down. The next conflict is going to be on a large scale and its quite possible that it will also be biblical. Its just a matter of time now - all of the pieces are in place and the stage is set.

Hello Scott

Is this worth consideration?

Concerning what, who, are ‘THE ISLES’. By the ‘law of first mention’ this is in Genesis10:5.
Hebew – iy –coast, island, shore, region.
Gesinius Lexicon –
1.Habitable or inhabited land as opposed to water, the sea and rivers.
2.Maritime land, whether the sea coast of a continent or an island…

Genesis 10:1Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2. The sons of JAPHETH; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras 3. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah 4. And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

All the peoples of the world are descendants of either Shem; Ham or Japheth the sons of Noah.

Westerners/Europeans = Japhethites. Genesis 10:2-5
Africans etc = ‘Hamitic’ Ham Genesis 10:6-20
Israel and the Arabs ‘Semites’ = Shem. Genesis 10:21-31

Genesis10:5 (Japheth) By these were THE ISLES OF THE GENTILES divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

Ezekiel 27:35 All the inhabitants of THE ISLES shall be astonished at thee, and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be troubled in their countenance.

Ezekiel 39:6And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly IN THE ISLES: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Does this suggest that THE ISLES refers to ALL the lands which the Japhethites founded. Europe, U.K. by extension North America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand? If so, we are all going to get ‘all shook up’ come the Gog-Magog war; Europe in particular, as has already been suggested by Stephen and Hartdawg.

I've always been intrigued by those verses, particularly Ezekiel 38:6, and I have wondered if that was a reference to the US. , based on "the isles" as referenced from the Genesis scriptures. I don't know if we can know for sure, but it is definitely very very interesting and food for thought.

By the way, did you feel the earthquake?

Hello Scott

Too far North, so I didn't feel a thing, and I didn't know about it until you told me here!

Sorry I forgot to put in the video link to #12.‘Will Jerusalem Be Divided’ by Pastor John Higgins of Calvary Chapel Tri-City, Tempe, Arizona.

EI said... "Too far North, so I didn't feel a thing..."

I thot for sure that maybe you had a bad dream and booted hubby out of bed onto the floor...

Expected Imminently said...

I furgot about that, how did you know? To think my nightmare started an international incident, don't want to be spotted , better put me shade back on in a nonchalant, jaunty angle.

Yea! Your back dear old DrNofog!
Hows the job?

Big hug

DrNofog said...

Hi EI, happy new year!

EI said... "Yea! Your back dear old DrNofog!"

My back?!?
Wot about my back???
...other than it's old and sore...

And watch that "old" comment! Hardly the way to make one look forward to a new year.

"Old" is an infinitesimal perspective viewed from eternity! [Jes doesn't feel that way right now...]

God bless you & yours!

May we all have the happiest new year possible, glorified with Jesus in our Father's house - no more backs to watch or aches to groan over - bliss!

God bless younyourn n'all.
