Biblical Elements: Israeli PM Netanyahu’s Comments Indicate Israel Could Attack Iran Within Weeks

Let us read this article using common sense and remove any bias we may hold toward one nation or the other. Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has once again launched his rhetoric at Iran over their nuclear program. We have heard over and over again what a threat Iran poses towards Israel yet Israel is the country constantly promoting and executing violence. They have now attacked Syria four times this year which were all unprovoked attacks.

It is being reported Turkey allowed Israel to use its air base for the latest attack against Syria. Yesterday, it was reported Israel tested a nuclear capable missile. While Iran has not started a war in 100s of years…

JPost reports the following,

Netanyahu, meanwhile, told an American audience on CBS News’s Face the Nation that regarding the 20% enriched uranium, the Islamic Republic was just 60 kilograms short of crossing his “red line.”

He defined this line – beyond which the Iranians should not be allowed to proceed – as being the possession of 250 kg. of 20% enriched uranium, enough fissile material for a nuclear bomb. He said they now had 190 kg., up from about 110 six to eight months ago.

Netanyahu said the Iranians were also building “faster centrifuges that would enable them to jump the line at a much faster rate. That is, within a few weeks.

“They’re getting closer,” he said. “They should understand that they’re not going to be allowed to cross it.

Iran is such a threat after at least 10 years they still do not have enough enriched uranium for a single bomb.  In part, because they could not build their own nuclear power plant, Russia had to do it for them. Speaking of enriched uranium, 20% enrichment will not yield a nuclear bomb. Weapons grade uranium must be enriched to 85%+ which means, Iran has a long way to go.

To say Iran is a backwards nation would be an understatement. This is a picture of their “latest attack drone.” Their air force consists of outdated United States F-14 fighters while their Navy is equipped with “killer” speed boats.

The point is Iran is no threat to Israel or the world. However, none of that matters. The globalists will lie and do whatever it takes to acquire their New World Order, it is what they seek and it is absolutely biblical. The fact remains Iran will be taken down as Daniel 8 describes. We are literally at the door of this event.

J Post continues their reporting,

Asked when he would make a decision to attack, Netanyahu responded: “I can tell you I won’t wait until it’s too late.” He added that it was “important to understand that we cannot allow it to happen,” and that the Israeli and US clocks on this matter were “ticking at a different pace.”

“We’re closer [to Iran] than the United States,” he said.

“We’re more vulnerable. And therefore, we’ll have to address this question of how to stop Iran, perhaps before the United States does. But as the prime minister of Israel, I’m determined to do whatever is necessary to defend my country, the one and only Jewish state, from a regime that threatens us with renewed annihilation.”

Between the two quotes Bibi already told us when they will attack. ‘In a few weeks when they cross the line which we will not allow.’ Whether or not they attack within that timeline remains to be seen. It is tough to imagine Israel striking without the assistance of the United States.

With that said we see Russia continuing to gear up for war by holding their largest military exercise in post-Soviet times. Rian is now reporting,

Russia’s air base of Tu-95MS Bear-H strategic bombers in the Amur Region is switching to full combat readiness as part of massive snap drills in the Eastern Military District, the Defense Ministry’s press office reported on Sunday.”

We should also note while Russia appears to be gearing up for war they are making peace deals with the United States. The deal states Russian soldiers will be used in the United States in case of a mass casualty event. These are not the words of war. We live in deceptive times my friends and it will only get much worse, more than most can comprehend. We all need to keep our eyes and ears open. We are being lied to on a daily basis while our governments spy upon us.

No matter what the catalyst for the next war is the results will be the same. Syria (Isaiah 17:1) and Iran (Daniel 8) will be taken out and then watch out!

A note for the Bible student to think about. Jeremiah 24 concerns Israel being planted as a nation which occurred May 15th 1948. Jeremiah 24 explains there were two baskets of figs set in front of the temple. One good and one bad. This is how Israel was to be planted, part good and part bad. The “Jews” of today get a very bad name because of what Jesus Christ described in Revelation 2:9, 3:9 where he stated, I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Many who claim to be of our true brother Judah are not, but do lie, due to that Judah  has received a bad name. Matthew 13:1-43 documents who these imposter Jews are who claim to be of our brother Judah. We will put together a full study on this topic in the future.

The nation of Israel is being used to push forth a world war and the world stands by idle because they do not understand who the majority of those who say they are Jews are, but do lie as Christ proclaimed. In essence this makes them (the fake Jews) a protected class with mainstream Christianity.

Nevertheless, God’s Word is coming to pass daily and we look forward to that.

  1. Brandon, another oldie but goodie. Judah has definitely been persecuted as a tribe for a long, long time. The bad figs have caused many nations to criticize the nation called by name; Israel. Do you feel that Luke 21:20 has already happened in 70A.D.? I know this isn’t the destruction of the temple that Jesus describes when he says not one stone shall be standing upon another; but Bullinger writes in his companion bible in appendix 155, and also in his book How to Enjoy the Bible, page 152, that this happens(Lk. 21:12-24) before the beginnings of sorrows; i.e. before the start of the tribulation. However, in between these verses, Jesus speaks of giving testimony, and not to premeditate what you shall say, and for these be the days of vengeance,…. Also I read Our Great Seal by Capt., and noticed in George Washington’s vision where it reads “…’Son of Republic, look and learn.’ At this the dark shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts[the three woe trumps?]; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia, and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: from each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light[of communism?] by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America. Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up….”
    To me, this seems more likely the scenario played out in Luke 21:20.
    Anything you could say about this would be appreciated. I’m just trying to learn all that I can. I know your busy, so I understand if your comment is brief.
    Thanks so very much Brandon! God bless.

    • Thank you for the comment Driving for God. I do not believe Luke 21:20 occurred. I believe that is yet future to us. Why? Because that desolation is Satan himself and he has not shown up just yet.

      Notice verse 21 those who inhabit Judah are to flee to the mountains. Why? Because Satan will be standing in Jerusalem claiming to be God and we do not want any part of that.

      • Thanks Brandon. That’s what I originally thought too regarding Luke 21:20. As good as Bullinger was, he was not immune from making some mistakes-so very few considering the depth of his studies. He didn’t have the advantage that we have had of living in the final generation, and having prophesy come to pass almost daily. Verse 24 is a bit perplexing. If everything written before is still future; than, what of this verse? Seems like it takes place prior to the tribulation, but that wouldn’t seem consistent with the rest of the subject; and once again, Bullinger here talks about this being when the Mohammedan possession occurred and in part the Romans. My past memory seems to tell me that A.M. talked about this, but at the time, it was too deep for my understanding and I had to “put it on the shelf” for the time being. Is this topic covered in the 70 weeks of Daniel? I will have to look over appendixes 89-91. If you could direct my studies anywhere else, it would be much appreciated.
        Thanks again for all your time and being here for everyone studying and watching in these exciting end times. God Bless.

        • Let’s turn our Bible to Luke 21:24
          24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

          I think this verse encompasses a large portion of time. The tribes were placed into bondage and then they did spread about to the four corners of the earth and became many nations as God promised to Abraham.

          The verse does backtrack a little, but I believe it was done so in order to get us to understand the expanse of time we would be dealing with. Finally, the verse ends with Jerusalem being run by gentiles. When does that end? Turn your Bible to,

          Revelation 11:2-3
          2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

          I believe this verse continues speaking of gentile rule and the “they” is speaking of Satan’s Beast Government (and his fallen angels) which will rule for the last half of the Tribulation absolute being the 42months. Notice, the next verse. This is when the Two Witnesses make their appearance. We know the true Tribes of Israel do not rule their today, so it would be tough to make the case that this is under control of one of the Tribes. Yes, Israel does consist of the good fig, but they are not in power and make up a minority at least.

          3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

          • Brandon, after and pouring over this scripture yesterday and then reading your analysis and conclusion, I must concur with you. Maybe Bullinger had it part right? As you suggested, it seems that Jesus might have been covering a wide reflective view of prophesy that started in the past; and then, showing us what will be happening(the persecution of Christians) all the way up to the tribulation and beyond. In Luke 21:12, we know this has been happening to Christians all throughout the past ages, and all the way up till now- including their martyrdom. I believe the treading down of Jerusalem began when Nebuchadnezzar removed from Jerusalem king Zedekiah. 2KINGS 25:1-2. Since this time(477B.C.) the king line of Jerusalem has been left vacant and the treading down still continues to this day. Obviously it will continue until Jesus returns and takes His rightful place. Additionally, before the fallen angels arrive, I think we can safely say that the Kenites and the palestinnians are doing all the current treading on Jerusalem.
            Thanks for sharing with me your thoughts about these verses. Everybody that I know has their own different belief than mine.
            Take care and God bless.

          • No problem Driving for God.

    • EyeonGod, I’m posting again here for your benefit in reference to your comment about Luke 21:20. I have never been quite satisfied with my interpretation on this chapter and I am currently reevaluating my current status on it. It’s always good to reread and challenge our beliefs and understandings as our knowledge continues to expand. We need to correctly and rightly divide his word.
