Israel on High Alert

So Iranian warships will pass through the Suez Canal after all.

Israel on high alert for Iranian warships' Suez transit. Kharg brings missiles

Cairo's approval Friday, Feb. 18 for two Iranian warships to transit the Suez Canal on their way to the Mediterranean has brought Israel and Iran closer than ever before to a naval collision at sea. DEBKAfile reports: Israel has learned that the Iranian cruiser Kharg is carrying long-range missiles for Hizballah which it plans to unload at a Syrian port or Beirut harbor.

US State Department spokesman P.J Crowley said he was "highly skeptical" of the Syrian claim that the two ships' visit was for training. "If the ships move through the canal, we will evaluate what they actually do.

It's not really about the ships. It's about what the ships are carrying, what's their destination, what's the cargo on board, where's it going, to whom and for what benefit," Crowley told a news conference.


This is rapidly developing into the next crisis. As if we need yet another problem in the region.

In Israel, government and military officials were urgently casting about for a way to prevent those missiles reaching the Lebanese terrorists. Heavy US and Israeli pressure failed to dissuade Egypt's military rulers from letting the Iranian flotilla through Suez.

So now the waterway has been opened wide for Iran to consign heavy weapons deliveries to Syria and Lebanon - in the first instance, and eventually to try and break Israel's naval blockade on the Gaza Strip and bring Hamas the heavy munitions that were impossible to transport through smuggling tunnels.


This also represents a significant escalation of Iranian influence in the region:

Up until now, Saudi Arabia, in close conjunction with Egypt and its President Hosni Mubarak, led the Sunni Arab thrust to contain Iranian expansion – especially in the Persian Gulf. However, the opening of a Saudi port to war ships of the Islamic Republic of Iran for the first time in the history of their relations points to a fundamental shift in Middle East trends in consequence of the Egyptian uprising.

It was also the first time Cairo has permitted Iranian warships to transit Suez from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean, although Israeli traffic in the opposite direction had been allowed.


Another new development worth watching. Iran seems to sense that this may be their time. Too bad they don't realize that we are actually approaching God's time. This isn't about Iran, this is about God protecting the Nation of Israel. The stage is being set so that Israel will have nowhere to turn but to God. And God will deliver them from the threat just as He has so many times in the past.

Did you hear about the UNSC veto ??
With all 14 members in favor except
the USA ?? I figure u knew about
that.

If it is REALLY TRUE that there are
missiles on those Persian vessels,
then Israel may have to take action.

I am not sure they will, but I am
quite SURE of one thing. If Israel
does TAKE action, then 38 Ezekiel
is very very close.

The next week will be critical.

There is alot of HATRED right now
cause of the UN veto. Very dangerous.

Write soon

What can one say? What can you feel? How long can the senses and nervous system be on a "high" at the recognizing and acknowledgment of His prophetic word unfolding?

It wasn't long ago that we got very excited watching a few developments which probably had prophetic implications develop on a quarterly or annual basis.

Then it transitioned to cyclic natural events live earthquakes, weather, and geopolitical happenings. One would reach a peak, start receding, and then the next item to grab our attention.

The Lord kept our attention....we knew it was building.

Then we elected Obummer, and things got on a serious roll and build up. Now, the number of prophetic type events we saw over a period of months may occur in a week....or even a day. As noted many times, its all building....geopolitical, OWG, famine, natural events. Its almost to the point of numbness and overload for the prophecy watcher.

Just amazing!

Ya just gotta wonder....What a blessing and honor, that our Father selected us to be alive during this period of time. A period countless generations have longed to see and wondered about.

A time also, to be sure we do our job. For whatever reason, He has us here during the here and now time of the "happenings" and unfoldings. What an honor and blessing.....and awesome responsibility!

Thanks Scott, for the continued excellent summation and commentary.

Awesome responsibility is an understatement, staying in constant state of prayer and praise :)
