Israel Proves that Iran Lied about Nuclear Program

The Israeli government pulled off an amazing achievement in the field of espionage. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed dramatic intelligence which clearly shows Iran is “brazenly lying” about its nuclear weapons program and shows the country is not complying with the nuclear deal it signed in 2015.

The Israeli Mossad gained access to a “highly secret” location in Tehran that held a trove of documents. Netanyahu said the “half a ton” of files contained material spread over 55,000 files on 183 CD’s.

“These files conclusively prove that Iran is brazenly lying when it says it never had a nuclear weapons program,” he said.

Netanyahu briefed President Trump about the intelligence last Saturday and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday. European counterparts were also made aware prior to the speech, officials said.

Their revelation was a gut punch to the media and European leaders. The first couple of days they didn’t know what to say about information that showed overwhelming proof that Iran was lying. Netanyahu had incriminating documents, charts, presentations, blueprints, and photos. There were even details about a desire to build missiles that could deliver a warhead to the other side of the globe.

After a couple of days, the press collectively decided that the “accusations” by Israeli President Netanyahu are simply old news. They argued that the document pre-dated the nuclear agreement. Netanyahu has already provided an answer to this excuse. “After signing the nuclear deal in 2015, Iran intensified its efforts to hide its secret files,” Netanyahu said. “In 2017, Iran moved its nuclear weapons files to a highly secret location in Tehran.”

Netanyahu did make the mistake of going on CNN with Chris Cuomo. Because the nuclear deal was signed by Obama, CNN is by fault on Iran’s side. Cuomo turned the tables on Netanyahu by saying Israel needs to come clean about its nuclear weapons capabilities. After Cuomo repeatedly badgered the Israeli Prime Minister to the point of disrespect, Netanyahu won the argument with a final jab. “You can make all your assumptions. One thing is clear; Israel is not threatening the annihilation of another country,” he said.

Iran is so dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the US, it regularly has demonstrations with protesters trampling on Israeli flags, and some chanting “death to Israel” and “down with the USA.”

After we got fooled by North Korea with its nuclear program, it should be an obvious conclusion that Iran will pull the same stunt.

Iran has killed Americans on several occasions. In 2011, the Iranians tried to carry out what US officials called “an act of war” when it was discovered that Iran was plotting to hire a Mexican drug cartel to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador in a D.C. restaurant blast. The world just seems to have dementia when it comes to remembering Iran’s past sins.

The Bible gives no indication that Israel is going to be destroyed by a nuclear holocaust. The fact that Iran has promised to bring about Israel’s destruction should have leaders worried about conflict. Iran may decide to attack America to weaken its Jewish ally. Israel will certainly act to preserve itself from annihilation.

I was reading a financial article that said oil could rise to $300 a barrel if a major war was to break out in the Middle East. The glut of oil has dried up, and demand is very near supply. A disruption in the flow of oil is made certain by the eventual need for Israel to take action.

The most likely reason why our leaders are making such foolish decisions is the lack of prayer intercession. Where there is no prayer, Satan is allowed to influence world events. The Iranian Nuclear deal was so insanely flawed, it would require some type of demonic influence for its creation. Because we made so many immoral decisions, I don’t see how we could turn the corner. Netanyahu’s revelation only proves that the world is only willing to reaffirm its errors.

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:1–4).

False Accusers

In thinking on Paul’s “perilous times” characterizations of end-times man, we have covered most all of them as they seemed to become most prominent in daily life.

Here, again, is the apostle’s forewarning of things to come in this regard:

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

We have looked at each individually and collectively. Paul’s description of how humanity will be while the wrap-up of the Age of Grace nears its end has proven to be stunningly accurate. Of course, this shouldn’t surprise, because the apostle received  the descriptive directly from the mind of the Living God.

Paul tells us that the nearer the Church Age comes to its conclusion, the more self-centered human beings will become.

We have discussed in these commentaries that–in my view, at least, the “selfie” –photos of one’s self–is such a manifestation of Paul’s prophetic characterization.

It is perhaps somewhat of a humorous example, but an example, nonetheless. Combined with social media and the desire of so many to one-up others in lifestyle creation -often fictional–the selfie becomes even more significant in fulfillment of this prophetic element.

We have gone over other characteristics of end-times man Paul lays out in this prophetic passage. Another example of these characteristics manifesting in our society and culture today is that men will be “without natural affection.”

My own view of this prophetic manifestation in our time is, of course, homosexuality and abortion.

My wonderment has always been: How can anyone consider sexual relations with a person of the same sex as “natural” activity? How can anyone believe abortion to be “natural” in a mother dealing with a baby in her womb? Yet these are two of the most prominent social and cultural manifestations of our day.

We know from our daily news of how “fierce” people can be in dealing with each other. This sort of murderous news seems to be the kind that most interests the viewing public–thus stimulates the news-reporting sources to broadcast it.

All we have to do is consider many of our congressional leaders and other governmental “servants”–such as those within our judicial system–to see the truth in Paul’s condemning words about mankind being “heady” and “high-minded.” These more often than not go against the will of the people in making decisions that “rule,” not “serve,” we the people.

Now we come to the title of the commentary–the characteristic Paul terms “false accusers.”

This characteristic of end-times man has, in my view, become the most manifest of all for this particular hour while the end of the age draws to its conclusion.

The 2016 presidential election has brought this one front and center for all to clearly discern. Any sound-thinking people can–if they simply open their eyes and ears–realize that the effort to destroy this president and his presidency has been the drive of the political left. As a matter of fact, I have characterized it as a satanic rage by both human and demonic minions that come against this administration’s efforts to get America back on track.

Certainly, America has been derailed, moving farther and farther away from God’s directions for life on earth as put forth in His Holy Word. Having been founded on godly principles by the Founding Fathers, it has been Satan’s plan to remove all tethers from those spiritual moorings. He has been phenomenally successful in doing so. The former presidential administration and its deleterious achievements are proof of the fallen one’s success in that regard.

The nefarious work of Satan and the minions continue. They do so through “false accusation.”

There are so many false accusers and false accusations that one commentary could not begin to cover them. So, we will look briefly at the most obvious of the false accusations.

I’m thinking here about Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent who, for payment, apparently, by the opponent candidate’s campaign against Donald Trump, wrote a fictional dossier, falsely accusing Trump of salacious activity while in a hotel room in Russia. This was done, it has been proven through many months of closely examining the facts, in order to give the FISA judge reason to issue permission to open investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia in the defeat of Hillary Clinton.

It is all totally false, of course, but Muller’s investigation goes on. This is false accusation manifest for all the world to see.

No matter which channel or network that is giving news, this is the number-one story. And, it has proven to be totally “fake news.” That, friends and countrymen, is “false accusers” doing their minion work right in our faces.

This particular characteristic of end-times man, forewarned by Paul the apostle, threatens to create a constitutional crisis, threatens to tear apart the United States by dividing America in a way not even the Civil War could accomplish.

The only comforting thing those who are under the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ can take from all this is that seeing all this in our headlines today means that our redemption is drawing near.

The Leftist Bias has Corrupted America’s Legal System

A key reason why liberty in America is faltering is because the Democrats have decided that politics is a higher priority than the welfare of our nation. For them, it has now become a giant, ongoing political battle where their agenda always comes first in any decision.

When President Trump needs to go to the Senate for approval of a new cabinet officer, he can’t expect any vote from the left. Someone may be highly qualified for a job, but because he is a Republican, the Democrats automatically vote against him.

Last week, Mike Pompeo, whom Trump nominated to be the Secretary of State, received the cold- shoulder treatment. Despite being highly qualified for the job, the Democrats came up with lame excuses for not voting for him.

When Obama nominated Hillary Clinton for the same job, she was confirmed in the full Senate by a vote of 94–2. Only Republican Senator David Vitter of Louisiana and Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina voted against her confirmation. Far more Republican Senators had a personal dislike for Clinton, but they voted for her because they knew the nation needed a Secretary of State.

This unfair treatment of people on the right has extended to all areas of life. A woman named Lindsey posted this comment on Twitter, “I love working in the admissions office at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, and putting every conservative student’s college application through the shredder.” When someone said her action was “probably illegal,” her post was deleted.

I think the most amount of damage is occurring in the judicial system. When you go before a judge in a legal matter, his or her ruling should not be based on their political party affiliation. It is increasingly becoming clear that Democratic judges have already decided on how they will rule in cases related to politics.

The reason why supporters of illegal immigration ran to the Hawaiian Ninth Circuit Court was because they knew that Judge Derrick Watson, an appointee of President Barack Obama, would give them a temporary restraining order. In another case, they went to the Northern District of California in San Francisco and received another restraining order.

Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is another example of how corrupt our legal system has become. Muller and his team of leftist lawyers are not after information on Russian interference. They are out to get Trump. Because they can’t link Trump to any crime, they are going to investigate everyone around him to find something to charge him with.

There is a rapid desensitization to what is clear violation of basic rights. When President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was raided, there should have been massive uproar from the public. Cohen is trying to defend Trump against Mueller. It’s like someone being charged with a crime, and the police arresting his lawyer. These are Soviet-style tactics.

The injustice with Cohen just keeps rolling on. When he went before Judge Kimba Wood in New York to get back his documents, she forced Cohen to reveal that Fox News host Sean Hannity was a client of his. This is a clear violation of legal guidelines. Unless a person is involved in a dispute, a judge has no right to give out someone’s name. This judge should be disbarred for her action. Since the rule of law is now void, any move is fair game.

I’ve reported many times before that the liberal media is just an extension of the Democratic Party. I was surprised to learn that the press has its own involvement in the legal system. At Cohen’s hearing were two lawyers for the New York Times and CNN. They were there to do the devil’s bidding. Trump was right in saying they are the enemies of the state.

People don’t care about the corruption of the legal system because it doesn’t affect them. When you have a breakdown in natural law, it’s only a matter of time before the whole nation suffers the consequences of lawlessness. The Bible says we “instinctively” know what is lawful, and our collective inaction makes us guilty in suffering the punishments.

We believers have the hope of escaping this mess by way of the rapture. We are to expect a timely rescue from God, but it’s important for us to be fighting to the very end.

“For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves, since they show that the work of the Law is written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts either accusing or defending them” (Romans 2:14-15).

European-Russian Anti-Trump Collusion

While Iran and Russia continue to merge and coalesce north of Israel, controversy is stirring mightily over the Iranian nuclear “deal.”

President Barack Obama, in 2015, agreed to the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers. The agreement that included the US, the UK, Russia, France, China, and Germany was considered the signature foreign-policy achievement of his presidency.

The lifting of crippling economic sanctions on Iran in return for limitations to Iran’s forging ahead with nuclear development was at the heart of the deal. The agreement was struck out of fear that the Iranian regime would use their nuclear program to develop nuclear weapons.

With Iran’s Islamist-controlled government constantly and consistently calling for the total annihilation of the “Little Satan”–Israel–the deal continues to be the international community’s idea of the best way to assure that the nukes never reach the level of being usable.

The election of President Donald Trump disrupted the deal-consummating matter. Trump stumping for president, while calling it a “bad deal,” declared that, if elected, he would do away with it and would do a “better deal.”

The new president has said he will not recertify it because it is too weak and Iran has already violated key provisions. He said that it is much too lenient, and that Iran has broken the agreement by, for example, violating heavy-water limits and access to international inspectors.

He wants new sanctions on Iran and, in particular, against the regime’s Revolutionary Guard police force.

He has referred the deal to Congress for changes to the US terms.

Israel has seemingly exercised considerable patience, staying relatively silent, while the  Trump administration applies its policy-making to the critically important process. The world of diplomats–particularly in Europe–look with a wary eye not toward the treacherous Iranian-Russian cabal, but at the Jewish state. They see Israel as the most dangerous element in the whole matter. And with good reason.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that if the world of diplomacy doesn’t get rid of the nuclear threat–a threat directly aimed at Israel–the IDF will.

So it is that President Trump has yet another pressure point to his multitudinous pressure points since taking office.

There is rumor–speculation–that he will renege on his campaign promises and presidential promises to drop the Iran nuclear deal and do a “better deal.”

Europe sent to America the leader they consider to be closest to having Trump’s proverbial number.

France’s young president, Emmanuel Macron, and the American president seem to have formed a mutual admiration society of sorts. While the president has rubbed most of Europe’s leadership the wrong way, especially the EU’s most economically powerful leader, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump and Macron seem to hit it off, personally and diplomatically.

The same reports that say Trump might be about to change his mind on his campaign opinion, and that since becoming president, regarding the Iranian nuclear deal, he is about to face a dual assault in an attempt to sway him into keeping the deal as is.

Both Macron and Merkel are scheduled, as of this writing, to present their unified message. That message, it is said, is save the deal.

The French president has done some stage setting for the meetings with his close friend, as the media pundits would have it.

“I don’t have any Plan B for nuclear [protections] against Iran,” Macron said Sunday on Fox News. “Let’s preserve the framework because it is better than a sort of North Korea-type situation.”

The American president wasted little time upon Macron’s visit to make clear that his mind has not changed about the “worse deal ever made” in reference to the Iranian deal the Obama administration put together. Trump said if the Iranians start again toward a dangerous nuclear program, they will pay a price like no one else has paid. At the same time, he indicated that the North Korean situation to which the French president made reference is on track for a meeting that might lead to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. If not, he will walk away from the meetings.

International politics, like national politics, often make strange bedfellows, as the saying goes. Certainly that seems to be the case in this instance of today’s diplomatic machinations.

I hope the following gives some clarity to what I mean.

MOSCOW – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday he had agreed with his Chinese counterpart that Moscow and Beijing would try to block any U.S. attempt to sabotage the Iran nuclear deal, Russian state news agency TASS reported.

“We are against revising these agreements, we consider it very counter productive to try to reduce to zero years of international work carried out via talks between the six major powers and Iran,” TASS quoted Lavrov as saying after talks with Wang Yi, China’s top diplomat, in Beijing.

“We will obstruct attempts to sabotage these agreements which were enshrined in a U.N. Security Council resolution,” Lavrov was cited as saying. (Jerusalem Post Breaking News, “LAVROV: RUSSIA AND CHINA TO OBSTRUCT U.S. ‘SABOTAGE’ OF IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL,” Rapture Ready News, April 23, 2018).

The strange bedfellow situation, however, in this case, isn’t really so strange, when considering things from the perspective of Bible prophecy. All who are involved against this president are under the master director of the globalist cabal. That cabal belongs to Satan, who desperately desires to construct the platform from which his coming man of the hour–Antichrist–will launch planet earth’s deadliest conflict.

Beware, Mr. President. Russia is definitely colluding–and with America’s so-called friends, at that.
