Anticipating Prophetic Cry for Peace and Safety

The single most prominent contribution, perhaps, in President Trump’s dealing with Israel involved deescalating movement toward war in the region.

Despite outcries from every quarter when Mr. Trump officially declared Jerusalem Israel’s capital, then his ordering the American Embassy moved to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, calm has prevailed. There has been lower temperature in the region rather than elevation of heated conflict.

A big part of the success in keeping the potential for war at a relatively low level was the Trump administration’s reversal of the previous administration’s nuclear deal with Iran. The Iranian fanatic dictators—the Muslim ayatollahs—had their financial windfalls cut off abruptly by the “outsider candidate” that came to the presidency in January of 2017.

The Obama administration had rewarded bad behavior and threats by doing things like delivering billions of dollars in cash on pallets on darkened runways at night. Trump reversed this by cutting off funds belonging to Iran in US vaults by forbidding access to those funds by the Iranian regime.

Additionally, Trump’s State Department—though in some cases, reluctantly by the deep-state sort embedded there—put economy-breaking sanctions on the regime. This, in turn, caused population uprisings among Iran’s people because of food shortages and other sanction-engendered hardships.

Even liberal, geopolitical observers had to admit that, strangely, the Iranian people, rather than blaming America, placed blame squarely on the ayatollah dictators for their plight.

To the day of Donald J. Trump’s leaving the presidency, Iran’s black-hearted leadership was searching for ways to get America to loosen sanctions. They tried everything from threats of attacking ships in the Gulf of Hormuz to promising to send terror squads to infiltrate American cities.

Never was there “nice talk” of peaceful resolution from the pernicious Persians. But as soon as it became clear that Biden had won the presidential race, the Iranians began “nice talk” of welcoming the same nuclear deal that Mr. Obama and John Kerry had arranged.

Still, however, Iran’s hostility toward America and Israel was not quelled.

They blatantly began to openly let be known that they were again working on nuclear projects, not even hiding that this includes uranium processing for weapons-grade, fissile material.

It is more than obvious that the dangers are building. Iran is on track to produce the nuclear weapon that Donald Trump declared they would never have.

Indeed, they apparently haven’t been able to produce such a weapon to this point. But it is now a matter of time, if the Biden administration, as it seems to be promising, goes back to the nuclear deal of Obama and Kerry. It is almost certain that if the regime of the Muslim terrorists have their way like they did prior to Trump’s presidency, people not only in Israel, but all over the world, will soon be crying for “peace and safety.”

The International Atomic Energy Agency, an international organization for overseeing nuclear programs, announced last Wednesday that Iran has begun work on uranium metal-based fuel for a research reactor in contravention of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) signed in 2015. The deal bans Iran from producing or acquiring uranium metal until 2030 and, in return, removed economic sanctions that had been in place. Uranium metal, a material that can be used in the core of a nuclear bomb, has no civilian uses but is essential for a nuclear weapons program.

France, Britain, and Germany, who are still adhering to the terms of the JCPOA which they co-signed, joined in condemning the move:

“We strongly encourage Iran to end this activity, and return to full compliance with its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action without delay, if it is serious about preserving this agreement,” the three countries’ governments said in a joint statement.

It is expected that Iran will begin producing the uranium metal within five months. (“Iran to Begin Producing Uranium Metal for Nuclear Weapons Program,” by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, The Israel BibleTM, January 19, 2021)

With the new administration’s leaning toward total recommitment to the Iran nuclear deal, Israel’s options for dealing with a revitalized Iranian nuclear-weapons program are becoming fewer. The prophecy of Elam being destroyed might be on their docket—the mountainous area where much of Iran’s nuclear laboratories are said to be operating. It seems now to be only a matter of time, short of heavenly intervention.

And then there is the tremendous economic and geopolitical boost in the Chinese regime that looks to be in the offing with the coming in of the Democrat-controlled US government. They see China as a “competitor,” not as an enemy to be feared, despite the hegemonic, even overtly aggressive military actions by the CCP in the South China Sea, around Taiwan, and in other parts of the region.

The cry for “peace and safety” will shortly be on the rise, I have no doubt. But this also has a silver lining. Such a time is prophesied to be the moment of that great, anticipated instant in human history that will be an astonishing event to the entire world.

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober… Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. (1 Thes 5:1–6, 11)

  1. Amen. Love in Christ Jesus.

    Detonation of Nuclear weapons is almost certainly going to happen during the early part of the Tribulation. However, I wonder if any such bombs will be dropped on this side of the rapture? Well, you could argue that they were already: August 1945 on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On that basis, we could very well see a nuclear exchange. Perhaps that will invoke the unanimous cry of “peace and safety”. 🤔

    It is certain that the four-year slowdown in the pace of the ticking of the prophetic clock is now at and end. Rather than resume the pace it had with the Obama administration, I suspect it will only accelerate during the Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer regime. By the way, I’m not calling it this a “regime” by accident because I think we have come to an end of the free America which existed before Covid 19 was over-exploited and used as a means to start enslaving us. The police-state methods that have already been used in the the world’s totalitarian societies are now growing exponentially in virtually every formerly free country on the planet.

    I have a hunch that the time is soon coming when the full count of believers is achieved and that after that point, no further remedy exists for those who have stubbornly refused to acknowledge his authority other than judgment.
    God knows exactly when this time will be reached.

    Paul tells us that it will come “as a thief in the night” (1 Thess. 5:2) and many prophecy scholars suggest it’ll be a big surprise everyone on Earth. Many have suggested that all of a sudden, people will just disappear, leaving cars without drivers, airplanes without pilots, etc. I think that may only be part of the story because we also have:

    “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” {Amos 3:7}

    Though Jesus himself told us that John was the last of the biblical prophets [Matthew 11:13], not counting himself, of course. I consider that there are many voices left today like them who have been warning us to be ready for Jesus to directly step into the picture.

    I think it is very possible that such people will also be given a final warning to disseminate right before the Rapture is about to occur because we have historical precedents of immediate warnings such as Joseph and Daniel’s revelations to their respective rulers, for example. If this is so, we should be watching and listening, but basing what we’re being told on biblical standards always. We must “test the spirits” (1 John 4:1) and look for confirmation (Deuteronomy 17:6-7; John 8:7).

    However, whether the Rapture comes completely without a warning or not, we know it’s surely coming – so let’s be ready for it when it does!

    • Jeff Scanga says:

      I’ve wondered about this too and often thought that perhaps we would have a few seconds to pull over and park our cars or at least take them off cruise control! I also think that Enoch had some warning of some sort – although scripture doesn’t record it, but we know that Elijah knew when his time was up and the chariot came for him.

      In any event, I wholeheartedly agree with you that the pace of the prophetic time clock hasn’t just merely resumed – it’s making up for lost time now! Just looking at the events in this first month of 2021 there is no doubt.

      • Ed Wood says:

        Thanks, Jeff.

        Imagine what could happen in the following months if just the first three weeks of this year is an indication? It is like a volcano increasingly building up stress. Usually, there are warning signs which increase in frequency and intensity indicating that it is about to become active ahead of time before the pressures become sufficient for the eruption to take place. The scientists’ equipment can tell them that it is going to go off, but they don’t know exactly when.

        That’s how I see Earth today. The signs are becoming more obvious and there are more of them all the time. We’re equipped with what the Bible showed us so those of it who take it seriously recognize that “something” is about to happen, while those who don’t are like Harry Truman who refused to listen to the warnings about Mount St. Helen’s from the geologists who knew what was coming.

        I think Terry James is a good candidate as to one of those people who might get a “heads-up” shortly before the Rapture and if he does, this website will be an invaluable asset toward him getting out the word to the rest of us. He’ll be at the right place, at the right time and so will we if we keep watching here.

        Who knows, maybe each of us will in some way as well.

        God bless.
        Ed

    Ready & Heaven Bound for the 7 year Tribulation!!! I pray everyday. . . Maranatha! Perhaps today! I have been praying for over 15 yrs for family, friends and foes, to receive a hunger for the Lord and His Word, and to untether themselves from the things of this World! I have been crippled and disabled for the past 6 years,3 major operations and long healings, living alone, with no help, except God and my tiny S.S. check. (750.00 per mo.) I always have all I need and with the stimulus Checks received, I had opportunity to tithe to ministries that handle, divide and teach the whole council of God’s Word, correctly, that feed me my daily Bread of Life, online! My growth in His Word, has healed almost every area of my mind, heart, emotions, and brokenness. Now I am very anxious to meet the Lord in the air and receive that New Body. When we return, with Jesus to be a part of the 1000 yr Millennial Kingdom, I am so looking forward to serving and reigning with our King and Righteous Judge. I have been ready, Rapture Ready for over 10 yrs. So warning or no warning, I have had enough of the cruelty, corruption, injustices, murders, rapes, sicknesses, child trafficking, death. . .etc. . . Only Our Father God and Jesus Christ can bring PEACE and JUSTICE to this Earth. As all the redeemed who worship them, adore them and believe that the best is yet to come, I remain training for reigning time, in the Spirit and clothed in our Spiritual Armor, praying daily for millions and millions of lost souls to look up, cry out to their Creator, forgive me! Then to Repent! Then for the unsaved to receive that incredible free grace gift, Jesus Christ, and all His suffering work, already done on behave of us all, so they may live with God forever and forever! I so enjoy every Article or Commentary you write. Thank you so much for your ministry. God bless and see ya in the air or on the balcony of Heaven soon! Maranatha!

    Everything is so crystal clear now, next step is Biden renewing the nuclear pact with Iran to allow them to finish the atomic bomb to destroy Israel, Obama and Kamala are bihind this, they hate Israel. So to stop this Israel will bomb the nuclear deposits in Iran and will cause the death of many russians working there, so Ezequiel 38 will start. Biden willl side with the Iranians, but God will be with Israel as usual.

  8. Carling says:

    I believe I read Iran has nuclear missiles pointed our way, in Venezuela. I thought they purchased them from North Korea or Pakistan. ‘Anyone have information about this?

  9. Carins says:

    I believe everything happening in the world today points only to the end of the “church age” is rapidly approaching, with the rapture the next major event to take place. From the description we are given of the False Prophet and the Antichrist, I believe these two individuals who will assume these personalities are alive and currently active on the world stage. The False Prophet will introduce the Antichrist to the world so the FP must come ahead of and precede the Antichrist. I believe we already know this precedent personality because he is currently very active in and a prominent advocate of the New Reset (One World Order) and World Population Reduction programs.

    • Jeff Scanga says:

      True statement Carins. From the very day Pope Francis was chosen I said – “there’s a False Prophet candidate right there”. In the months and years that have followed he has only strengthened that notion like no other Pope or religious figure in all of history.

      • bernardo says:

        Carins and Jeffs, I also believe this Pope is gonna play important role in the fulfillment of end times prophesies. But Im sure also Barack Obama will play a role probably more important than the one of the Pope.
