A Short History of the Coming War with Iran--Part 3
Oct 21, 2011
Jeremiah 25:11 tells us that "these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years." This was on account of Jerusalem's refusal to keep its Sabbath years and its Jubilees. By the time Jerusalem was destroyed, their time-debt owed to God was 70 years. Hence, we read in 2 Chron. 36:20 and 21,
(20) And those who had escaped from the sword he carried away to Babylon; and they were servants to him and to his sons until the rule of the kingdom of Persia, (21) to fulfill the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed its Sabbaths. All the days of its desolation it kept Sabbath until seventy years were complete.
In other words, because the people refused to let the land rest every seventh year, God removed them from the land in order to give the land the 70 rest-years that the people had never kept. Earlier, God had removed the House of Israel (northern tribes) on their 14th Jubilee from Adam. The Israelites did not keep their Jubilee, so God gave their land a Jubilee.
Their 70-year exile was only the first stage of captivity, however. When they returned to the land under Ezra, they remained under Persian rule. They were still in captivity, though not in exile. Daniel 2 and 7 make it clear that the captivity was to be extended over a very long period of time that would span four empires: Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome, and an extension of Rome known as "the little horn." In Revelation 13 John extends this even further, showing that the little horn would occur in two phases. The first part was led by the (religious) beast from the sea, and part two was led by the (banking) beast from the earth.
We are now coming to the end of the second phase, with the collapse of the Western Banking system as we know it.
Revelation 17 calls this "Mystery Babylon" when describing its collapse. Hence, by extension, we can relate its collapse to the fall of the old city of Babylon at the hands of the Medes and Persians. The picture is bigger than that, of course, but nonetheless, it is not surprising to find modern Persia (i.e., Iran) at the forefront of the battle against Mystery Babylon.
It seems obvious that God has again raised up Persia to overthrow Babylon. That was its calling in the last years of Daniel, as seen in Daniel 5 and 6. So also today we see a repeat of this. The difference is that Persia will not set the old Jerusalem free, but has been raised up to destroy that city. Its destruction will cast out "Hagar" and her children (Gal. 4:30), so that "Sarah," the Jerusalem above, can be set free, and so that the Isaac company can finish their calling to set the earth free.
The Persian "bear" itself, prophesied in Dan. 7:5, was shown in 1986 to be subdivided into two parts, much like the "little horn" of Rome. The first "bear" was called to move against Iraq in the Gulf War. The second "bear" is now called to destroy Jerusalem. Both were called to "devour much flesh" (Dan. 7:5).
The destruction of Jerusalem does not necessarily have to come at the hands of Iran itself. The "Prince of Persia" is the ruling prince of the entire region and of Islam in general.
Just before this second "bear" was released on Sept. 11, 2001, we fought a series of spiritual battles beginning January 29, 2001 to determine the outcome of the coming conflict. On March 22 we began to pray "God bless America," and six months later, the whole country was praying this prayer--even Congress and Alan Greenspan. Our revelation was that God's definition of "bless" was not to fill our wallets with cash, but to turn every one of us from our iniquity (Acts 3:26). Hence, Congress gathered on the front steps of the Capitol to appeal to God to turn them and all of us from our iniquities!
Their prayer is now being answered. They do not like the answer, of course, because they thought they were asking God for money to save the economy. But Jehovah-Tricky used the biblical definition of "bless."
Therefore, the final result is already pre-determined. The battle has already been won. We saw the end result in 2001. In fact, we also saw the overthrow of old Jerusalem on November 29, 2000. All of these things are chronicled in my book, The Wars of the Lord, which you may view online.
All of the major battles were fought ten years ago in 2001. Those battles concluded with a final battle in November 2001 called "Entering the Millennium of Rest." I wrote of this in chapter 42 of The Wars of the Lord. We were led to lodge a complaint in the Divine Court on November 1st called "Ye Shall Surely Perish." Then, in order to enforce the divine decree, we launched into spiritual warfare from Nov. 1-8.
From November 8-14, the Divine decrees were as follows:
1. That the ministry of miracles will be done in the earth.
2. That the Spirit of God would be poured out so that people's eyes would be opened to the Truth.
3. Prayer for the church to be set free.
New Era begins with the overcomers being equipped to do the ministry ahead.
Coronation of the Overcomers
Angel of Working of Miracles commissioned as per the Covenant of Miracles promised in Exodus 34:10,
Then God said, "Behold, I am going to make a COVENANT. Before all your people I will perform miracles, which have not been produced in all the earth, nor among any of the nations; and all the people among whom you live will see the working of the Lord, for it is a fearful [awesome] thing that I am going to perform with you."
This was ten years ago, and according to the Hezekiah Factor, we have been waiting for ten years to see the outcome of this prayer battle manifested in the earth.
In light of this, our watch date of November 11 takes on new significance, because it falls within the time frame of these decrees in 2001.
Last night in our prayer time, the Word of the Lord came forth very clearly. Yesterday was the 8th day of Tabernacles and thus the end of the previous Prophetic Year. We have now entered into the threshold of the new thing that God is abouit to do in the earth. The "Elite" of the earth are frightened by what the Angel of Working Miracles is about to manifest in the earth, because there is nothing that they can do about it, in spite of their power and money.
They cannot even stop it by trying to fight a spiritual battle against us, because the battle was already won ten years ago. The results are set in stone. The Word was already decreed, and the coronation of the Overcoming Remnant was fully accomplished. Those "Elite" who continue trying to fight it instead of repenting will come under the decree: Ye shall surely perish. My advice to them is to repent and join the winning side before it is too late. (Yes, I know you monitor my site, so I am speaking directly to you, for "whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved." His name is Jesus.)
America and the Israeli state are now planning to attack Iran in an attempt to save Jerusalem. All they will do is to CAUSE its destruction. Destruction may not come from Iran itself. The Prince of Persia has many resources. But an attack on Iran will begin the final countdown and put into motion the final sequence of events leading to that final end.
