The Monster is Gone
Well, there’s no other subject this week, right?
Yamamoto is dead! Saddam swings from a rope!
Donald Trump has potentially reshaped the Middle East from one decision.
This week, the American president ordered a hit on the world’s top terrorist, Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. Arguably the most powerful man in the Islamic country of Iran, Soleimani’s arrogance had brought him to the point of landing at the Baghdad Airport, only miles from the besieged U.S. Embassy. In the week prior, Trump sent the Marines and 750 paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne to bolster the embassy, ringed by terrorist “militias” backed by Soleimani. Trump also issued a direct threat to Iran.
Next thing you know, a drone strike cremated the odious Iranian, along with others from his entourage.
I have not often seen broadcasters—many of whom are Never-Trumpers—struggling to keep from expressing admiration for the President’s boldness. Yes, the usual suspects, themselves traitors, are criticizing the move. But the consensus is, this is a game-changer.
German journalist Julian Reichelt has written:
“President Trump has freed the world of a monster whose aim in life was an atomic cloud over Tel Aviv. Trump has acted in self-defense – the self-defense of the US and all peace-loving people.”
I tell you in all seriousness, I woke up thinking the identical thing this morning. Iran’s leadership has its main goal as terminating Israel.
And see what God has done.
Why in the world cannot people read history and quake in the presence of Israel? Do people not believe history? Do they ignore it?
The international community certainly ignores Bible prophecy.
But this is what the Lord says:
“Yes, captives will be taken from warriors,
and plunder retrieved from the fierce;
I will contend with those who contend with you,
and your children I will save.
I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh;
they will be drunk on their own blood, as with wine.
Then all mankind will know
that I, the Lord, am your Savior,
your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” (Isaiah 49:25-26)
Soleimani, as we now know, was also responsible for hundreds of American deaths. He helped devise explosive devices that blew apart our brave men and women in Iraq and Syria. Maimed others for life.
Now he literally awaits being thrown into the Lake of Fire at the resurrection of the dead.
Soleimani was also plotting attacks on American diplomats when the missile came in his car window. Trump has saved more lives.
What will be exciting is watching how this strengthens Israel in the region. For those who worry about the Iranian threats of retaliation, just know that they are limited in what they can do. I concur with some experts who believe this will show that the Emperor has no Clothes. Not that they can’t do damage, but as others have said, if Trump could do this to Iran, he can do anything.
