Iran Readies for War with ‘Regional’ Enemies

Iran this week conducted a series of test launches of domestically-produced medium- and long-range ballistic missiles. Iranian officials said the tests targeted replications of “trans-regional powers.”

Iran’s more advanced homegrown missiles are capable of hitting most parts of Israel, and it was at first assumed that the Jewish state was the target of the exercise.

But Revolutionary Guards General Amir Ali Hajizadeh revealed that the exercise was intended as a warning to both Israel and American forces in the region. Iran’s Fars news agency reported that the dummy target bases were modeled after American bases in the Middle East, while Hajizadeh said the exercise clearly demonstrated that any Israeli military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities would result in a catastrophic response.

“If they (Israel) take any action, they will hand us an excuse to wipe them off the face of the earth,” Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by Iran’s IRNA news agency.

The general added that the target bases were modeled on American bases as a deterrent to US forces getting involved should Israel decided to strike Iran.

It is also worth noting that the missile exercise was dubbed “Great Prophet 7,” a clear Islamic religious reference. While Western diplomats insist that ultimately Iran will behave pragmatically and not try to annihilate Israel, those more familiar with the region note that Iran’s real rulers, the ayatollahs, make their decisions based primarily on radical religious beliefs and tenets, not pragmatism. They view the destruction of Israel as a religious duty and prophetic necessity.

  1. An Iranian Christian professor visited our church a few weeks ago. During lunch, the topic gravitated to our sitting President and the coming election. According to this professor, Christians all over Iran are fervently praying for a new US President stating if there is a reelction victory, we can wave goodbye to Israel.

    If MY people who are called by My name…

    Keep the Faith! and keep praying!

  2. That’s what wrong with our policy. We view them and treat them like they’re sane, and have common sense. When someone says they’re going to blow something up. We should take them dead serious. We’re adding to the danger by treating them the way we do. Shame on us for our failure to stand with Israel as we should.

    • Amen, Wayne. I just bought a Star of David Jewish necklace the other day as a reminder that Jesus (Yeshua) was Jewish…and I do love HIm so….and that the Jewish people are His firstborn and beloved…and to show that I support Israel and the Jewish nation!

  3. And we will not stand with Israel, this President hates her. He turned his back on her again the other day at the UN and accepted them investigating her for war crimes. If Israel is attacked, I think that this administration will obstruct as much as possible, and that sets us up for destruction because God has clearly warned those who don’t support her will be destroyed.

    • And this is exactly why America, once a blessed nation, is no longer blessed as a nation by God. We were His second blessed nation…Israel His first…and now we are in trouble. Anyone in view of this post, you absolutely must read The Harbinger By Jonathan Cahn, a Messianic Jewish Rabbi. It is a best seller and I promise you with everything I have inside that it will blow you away. In fact, do a search here on my site, upper right hand corner of my page here…and type in the Harbinger…I have some stuff here on it, including a video interview. This is an absolute must read for everyone, especially those who call themselves, ‘of the family of God.’

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 God's call to the world! Are you ready?
