It’s time to renew the warning of my first prophetic message from ten years ago: God will not allow us to mess with Iran.
I suspect some of the noise we hear about this is just tactical propaganda. We need to see the whole context. The Whitehouse is plagued with leaks, so the apparent inconsistency arises in part from playing head-games with the sources of those leaks. The other element is a form of shock therapy that disrupts the plans of the opposition. It’s immoral, but we should at least understand how it seems entirely logical. So when it comes to the issue of US relations with Iran (or any other country, for that matter) take the noise with a grain of salt. Wait and see what actually happens.
The experience of receiving this prophetic charge is hard to describe. Part of that experience was seeing a vision during waking hours: American troops and equipment lying destroyed in a desolate place in the country of Iran. It hit me very hard with weeping at the shock of what it meant, and it took a day or so for me to feel sure I was required to share it. It was the first time the gift was stirred to life in such a dramatic shape. There had been hints previously, but it was too easy to associate them with simple knowledge of the Bible. This one stood starkly alone on no other ground than the work of the Holy Spirit.
I stand by my prophetic warning; nothing in my spirit indicates that anything has changed. Back when I first offered this warning (on a now defunct blog elsewhere), it was hard to justify against my own military and political understanding at the time. Moreover, I can think of no particular reason from Scripture as a background to explain it. Still, it was a relentless driving power in my soul that demanded I declare that warning: God will not allow the US to successfully attack Iran.
As it is now, we have seen the development of Iranian military power and the support she receives from some powerful allies. At the same time, US military power has degraded noticeably. It would take way too much time and writing to bring out all the details, and some of it is subject to debate. However, my point is that my vision of our troops and equipment lying scattered and smoking on the ground is now far more plausible in human terms than it was ten years ago.
The only particular mystical linkage is that it’s the boundary of where God will allow Israel to push us. I suspect that Israel is also forbidden to attack Iran again, but that’s not part of my vision on the matter.
Right now, I’m not in a position to get this message into the ears of the folks who will make the final decision either way. Part of the problem is credibility, of course. Can you imagine sending a letter to the Whitehouse when I reject the bulk of religious notions of just about everyone in America? I’m not fearful about it, just frustrated on the human level. Plenty of prophetic messages in the Bible were aimed at a different audience than the one named in the message itself. This is a warning to like-minded believers to prepare accordingly, if this message speaks to your heart.
