Iranian Leaders are Treading on Thin Ice with Yahweh

Iranian leaders have been calling for Israel’s annihilation for years.  They refer to Israel as the “Little Satan” and the United States as the “Great Satan”.  Both countries are in their crosshairs.

Although Iranian leaders see Israel as the lesser of two evils, the Jewish state is at the top of their hit list.  Proximity is one reason why and limited missile capability is another, but behind those existential confines there exists a great hatred for the Jewish people and their homeland that is manic and inspired by the real Satan.

Although they won’t admit it and they may not realize it, Iran’s leaders are opposed to Yahweh.  They are especially adamant about preventing Yahweh from fulfilling His promises to and about the Children of Israel.  Judah is the most recognizable of the 12 tribes of Israel at this point, so Jewish people bear the brunt of Iran’s animosity.

Their haughty attitude is evident every time Israel is attacked.  Their pride and arrogance are incredible.  I want to make a point about them, but before I do, you should read the 26th chapter of Ezekiel:

Ezekiel 26: 1-21:

1 Now in the eleventh year, on the first of the month, the word of Yahweh came to me saying, 2 “Son of man, because Tyre has said concerning Jerusalem, ‘Aha, the gateway of the peoples is broken; it has opened to me. I shall be filled, now that she is laid waste,’ 3 therefore thus says Adonai Yahweh, ‘Behold, I am against you, O Tyre, and I will bring up many nations against you, as the sea brings up its waves. 4 They will destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers; and I will scrape her debris from her and make her a bare rock. 5 She will be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea, for I have spoken,’ declares Adonai Yahweh, ‘and she will become spoil for the nations. 6 Also her daughters who are on the mainland will be slain by the sword, and they will know that I am Yahweh.’”

7 For thus says Adonai Yahweh, “Behold, I will bring upon Tyre from the north Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, king of kings, with horses, chariots, cavalry and a great army. 8 He will slay your daughters on the mainland with the sword; and he will make siege walls against you, cast up a ramp against you and raise up a large shield against you. 9 The blow of his battering rams he will direct against your walls, and with his axes he will break down your towers. 10 Because of the multitude of his horses, the dust raised by them will cover you; your walls will shake at the noise of cavalry and wagons and chariots when he enters your gates as men enter a city that is breached. 11 With the hoofs of his horses he will trample all your streets. He will slay your people with the sword; and your strong pillars will come down to the ground. 12 Also they will make a spoil of your riches and a prey of your merchandise, break down your walls and destroy your pleasant houses, and throw your stones and your timbers and your debris into the water. 13 So I will silence the sound of your songs, and the sound of your harps will be heard no more. 14 I will make you a bare rock; you will be a place for the spreading of nets. You will be built no more, for I Yahweh have spoken,” declares Adonai Yahweh.

15 Thus says Adonai Yahweh to Tyre, “Shall not the coastlands shake at the sound of your fall when the wounded groan, when the slaughter occurs in your midst? 16 Then all the princes of the sea will go down from their thrones, remove their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They will clothe themselves with trembling; they will sit on the ground, tremble every moment and be appalled at you. 17 They will take up a lamentation over you and say to you, ‘How you have perished, O inhabited one, from the seas, O renowned city, which was mighty on the sea, she and her inhabitants, who imposed her terror on all her inhabitants! 18 Now the coastlands will tremble on the day of your fall; yes, the coastlands which are by the sea will be terrified at your passing.’”

19 For thus says Adonai Yahweh, “When I make you a desolate city, like the cities which are not inhabited, when I bring up the deep over you and the great waters cover you, 20 then I will bring you down with those who go down to the pit, to the people of old, and I will make you dwell in the lower parts of the earth, like the ancient waste places, with those who go down to the pit, so that you will not be inhabited; but I will set glory in the land of the living. 21 I will bring terrors on you and you will be no more; though you will be sought, you will never be found again,” declares Adonai Yahweh.

Yahweh Doesn’t Predict

For more information about Tyre’s destruction, click here and click here.

The author of the first article uses the word “predict” to describe Ezekiel’s prophecy.  Ezekiel did not “predict”.  He told people what Yahweh instructed him to say, and Yahweh doesn’t “predict”.  He explains.

Yahweh doesn’t suffer from our limitations.  He sees the past, present, and future simultaneously and in flawless detail.  So when Yahweh tells a prophet about the future, He is explaining something that is taking place right in front of Him.  That’s why He said that a prophet who errs in any way is not His prophet.

Don’t bet against Yahweh or Provoke Him

Ezekiel prophesied about Tyre’s destruction in 587 B.C.

Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the mainland city of Tyre with a siege that lasted for 13 years between 586 B.C. and 573 B.C.  In 586 B.C., Nebuchadnezzar also destroyed Jerusalem and Yahweh’s Temple that was built by King Solomon.

Alexander the Great built a causeway to the island city of Tyre with debris from the destruction of the mainland city of Tyre and conquered it in 332 B.C.

To this day, the old mainland city of Tyre is a place where fishermen spread their nets to dry.

Today, the Children of Israel are back in their homeland after a 2,000-year hiatus.  No other country in the history of the world has ceased to exist and then reemerged with the same name and the same language after such a long interval.  That was not an accident.  It, too, was foretold by Yahweh.

There is an Elohim in Israel and His Name is Yahweh

Iranian leaders are treading on thin ice with Yahweh.  They have brazenly declared that they intend to “wipe Israel off the map”.  If they were wise, for starters they would read the 26th chapter of Ezekiel and Psalm 83.  Then they would read what Yahweh said about their country.  For example, they should take a look at Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39.

Yahweh can wipe out Iran and its leaders in the blink of an eye any time He wants with no help from anyone.  He is the Creator and Judge.  One day, they will know that.  Everybody will.

There is an Elohim in Israel and His Name is Yahweh.  He is Israel’s Protector and Deliverer.  I pray that the people of Israel are beginning to understand what that means.

If Iran’s leaders are around when the Day of Yahweh comes, they will be toast unless they repent and put their faith in Yahweh.  If they do that, they, too, will become Israel’s defenders.




SnyderTalk Comment: This video is a brief summary of what Ezekiel said would happen to Tyre and what actually took place.



13--Perspectives 2


The Courier: Netanyahu says Israel will not cede land to Palestinians—Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel will not cede any territory due to the current climate in the Middle East, appearing to rule out the establishment of a Palestinian state. Netanyahu’s comments, which came as he sought to appeal to hard-liners ahead of national elections next week, rejected a key goal of the international community and bode poorly for reviving peace efforts if he is re-elected. “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that any evacuated territory would fall into the hands of Islamic extremism and terror organizations supported by Iran. Therefore, there will be no concessions and no withdrawals. It is simply irrelevant,” read a statement released by his Likud party. Netanyahu’s office said the statement reflected the prime minister’s long-held position. The international community has long pushed for the creation of a Palestinian state on lands captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war. In 1993, Israel and the Palestinians signed an interim agreement that was to lead to the end of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Numerous rounds of peace negotiations have been held since then, with the most recent talks breaking down last year.

SnyderTalk Comment: This is very good news.  Obama’s bungling in the Middle East finally caused something positive to happen.  It was by accident, but he deserves credit anyway.

Caroline Glick: Life under the US umbrella— South Korea lives under a US security umbrella. Both on a conventional and nuclear level, South Koreans are dependent on the US to deter North Korea from attacking them and overrunning their country. Last Friday, US Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman scolded South Koreans for being too nationalist. In her words, “Nationalist feelings can still be exploited, and it’s not hard for a political leader anywhere to earn cheap applause by vilifying a former enemy.” The South Koreans interpreted her remarks as criticism of their President Park Geun-hye for her refusal to reinstate reunification talks with North Korea due to Pyongyang’s refusal to discuss the dismantlement of its nuclear program. […]The day after Saudi King Salman signed his nuclear deal with Park, US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Riyadh to meet with him and with the foreign ministers of the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council – Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman. According to news reports, Kerry offered the Arab leaders to place them under the US nuclear umbrella to protect them from Iran’s nuclear weapons program. There can be no doubt that in his conversations with the South Korean leader, King Salman discussed what life is like under an American security guarantee. And it is hard to see that he considers it a good bargain.

BreakingIsraelNews: Netanyahu Says Congress Speech ‘Well Worth’ Confrontation with Obama—After speaking to Congress on March 3 despite the objections of the Obama administration, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that “a prime minister in Israel must be able to stand up even to our closest ally and tell the truth.” In an interview published Friday by Israel Hayom, whose English-language content is distributed exclusively by, Netanyahu said his speech about the Iranian nuclear threat was “well worth the cost of confrontation” with President Barack Obama. The White House had opposed the speech on the grounds that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) did not consult Obama about inviting Netanyahu. “What are we expected to do with such a fateful issue?” Netanyahu said. “Put our heads down? Go back 80 years to a time when Jews were forced to cower before the nobility? Ignore a threat of annihilation? Not demand action? Stop interrupting? I refuse to accept that.” The prime minister said he believes his remarks “were very well received by the American public as well as the members of Congress, both Republican and Democrat.”

Moshe Philips and Benyamin Korn: How J Street Misled Obama Into Netanyahu Speech Debacle— Who misled President Obama into his losing showdown over Prime Minister Netanyahu’s blockbuster speech to Congress? And how much of this week’s setback to the President should be blamed on the “progressive” Israel lobbying group J Street? When J Street was established, its leaders chose a football metaphor to describe their purpose: they said they would serve as “President Obama’s blocking back.” In other words, they would charge into the defensive line, pushing aside critics so that Obama would be able to dictate terms to Israel. But as Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech to Congress demonstrates, J Street has instead misled the president–and the White House should draw a lesson from the experience. J Street officials make no secret of their access to the White House. There can be no doubt that when the president and his aides were considering how to respond to John Boehner’s invitation to Netanyahu to address Congress, they consulted the J Streeters. And this is where the bad advice began.

Washington Post Editorial: Obama Needs to Provide Real Answers to Netanyahu’s Arguments—The concerns about a prospective nuclear agreement with Iran raised by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a speech to Congresson Tuesday deserve a serious response from the Obama administration – one it has yet to provide. His speech singled out “two major concessions”: the acceptance of a large Iranian nuclear infrastructure, and a time limit on any restrictions, so that in as little as a decade Iran would be free to expand its production of nuclear materials. He asserted that the Iranian regime, engaged in a “march of conquest, subjugation and terror,” could not be expected to change during the decade-long term of an agreement. He proposed that controls on the nuclear program should be maintained “for as long as Iran continues its aggression in the region and in the world.” Rather than continuing its political attacks on Netanyahu, the administration ought to explain why the deal it is contemplating is justified – or reconsider it.

Dennis Ross: Obama Needs to Answer Netanyahu—The administration needs to explain why the deal it is trying to conclude actually will prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons for the lifetime of the agreement and afterwards. It needs to explain why the combination of the number and quality of centrifuges, their output, and the ship-out from Iran of enriched uranium will, in fact, ensure that the break-out time for the Iranians will not be less than one year. Similarly, there should be an answer on how the verification regime is going to work to ensure that we can detect, even in a larger nuclear program, any Iranian violation of the agreement. The issue of verification is critical not just because Iran’s past clandestine nuclear efforts prove it cannot be trusted, but also because the administration has made a one-year break-out time the key measure of success of the agreement. Netanyahu fears that, as with past arms control agreements, we will seek to discuss violations and not respond to them until it is too late. The administration should address this fear by spelling out different categories of violations and the consequences for each – and then seek congressional authorization to empower this president and his successors to act on these consequences.

David Ignatius: Any Deal Will Have to Address the Concerns Netanyahu Voiced—What Netanyahu did Tuesday was raise the bar for Obama. Any deal that the administration signs will have to address the concerns Netanyahu voiced. Given what’s at stake in the Middle East, that’s probably a good thing. As administration officials said at the outset of negotiations, no deal is better than a bad one. The Israeli prime minister’s speech served to sharpen the focus on what a good deal would look like.

Faisal J. Abbas: President Obama, Listen to Netanyahu on Iran—One must admit, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did get it right when it came to dealing with Iran. The Israeli PM managed to hit the nail right on the head when he said that Middle Eastern countries are collapsing and that “terror organizations, mostly backed by Iran, are filling in the vacuum.” In just a few words, Mr. Netanyahu managed to accurately summarize a clear and present danger, not just to Israel, but to other U.S. allies in the region. Nobody disagrees that ridding Iran of its nuclear ambitions is paramount. However, the real Iranian threat is not just the regime’s nuclear ambitions, but its expansionist approach and state-sponsored terrorism activities which are still ongoing.

David Daoud: Saudi Arabia Tells Kerry Iran is Taking Control of the Region as Hundreds of Iranian Fighters Enter Iraq— Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Saud Al-Faisal, told Secretary of State John Kerry in a joint press conference on Thursday that Saudi Arabia is worried about Iran’s regional expansionism and nuclear weapons, pan-Arab newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported. Al-Faisal said that his country, “supports the P5+1 in pursuing a strict regime of inspections which ensures that Iran will not pursue or possess nuclear weapons, meanwhile ensuring its right, and that of all countries in the region, to use nuclear energy peacefully according to IAEA’s requirements and under its supervision, and in connection to that Iran is now taking over Iraq.” Meanwhile, Al-Jazeera reported that hundreds of Iranian fighters had entered into Iraq’s Diyala Province through the Khanaqin border crossing, under the pretense of fighting ISIS. These fighters were accompanied by what the report called “columns” of transport trucks carrying large amounts of weapons and military equipment. See “Saudi Arabia becomes world’s biggest defense importer”.

Mshari Al-Zaydi: ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood—The U.S. is fighting the Islamic State (ISIS). However, few people know that the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is a disciple of the Muslim Brotherhood. In a recording recently posted on YouTube, the Brotherhood’s ideologue and cleric Yusuf Al-Qaradawi praises Baghdadi for being a well-known member of the group in his youth. Before Baghdadi, Osama Bin Laden was the most evil man in the eyes of the U.S. Washington took pride in sending in a team of commandos in 2011 to kill him in Pakistan. But Bin Laden was also once an obedient son of the Brotherhood and a faithful adherent of its ideology. In a recording released by al-Qaeda’s Al-Sahab Foundation in January, al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri said that Bin Laden was indeed a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. In short, all countries, excluding the U.S. and Iran, are beginning to see the true face of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Walid Shoebat: Hillary’s Connection To The Muslim Brotherhood And Her Multiple Private Emails With Her Muslim Assistant Huma Abedin Is Being Investigated For Muslim Brotherhood Connections—“Now we know why the State Department didn’t want to respond to our specific request for Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s communications,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “The State Department violated FOIA law rather than admit that it couldn’t and wouldn’t search the secret accounts that the agency has known about for years. This lawsuit shows how the latest Obama administration cover-up isn’t just about domestic politics but has significant foreign policy implications.” Hillary received memos which included a note on the sources of intelligence referred to as “Sources with access to the highest levels of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.”

Fox News: Boko Haram swears formal allegiance to ISIS— A message allegedly from the head of Nigeria’s Boko Haram terror group Saturday pledged his group’s allegiance to Islamic State. The pledge to IS came in an Arabic audio message with English subtitles alleged to have come from Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau and posted Saturday on Twitter, according to the SITE Intelligence monitoring service. “We announce our allegiance to the Caliph of the Muslims … and will hear and obey in times of difficulty and prosperity, in hardship and ease, and to endure being discriminated against, and not to dispute about rule with those in power, except in case of evident infidelity regarding that which there is a proof from Allah,” said the message. IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has declared himself the caliph.

Elise Cooper: Iran: Preventing a Deal with the Devil— President Obama should worry about his legacy concerning the possible deal with Iran.  He will become the 21st-century Neville Chamberlain.  This is such a bad plan on many accounts, yet the president is so narcissistic that he is doubling down as the criticism increases. Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu was asked to speak to Congress on the Iranian deal, much to President Obama’s chagrin.  The president did not want the American people to hear the prime minister’s arguments regarding this horrific plan.  Many in Congress agree with the assessment.  Congressman Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) told American Thinker, “America’s special relationship with Israel is vital to the security and interests of both of our nations, and it will always transcend politics.  No one understands the threat that Iran poses to Middle Eastern peace, the very existence of the nation of Israel, and the Jewish people better than Prime Minister Netanyahu, and he proved that again in his address.”

Tehran Times: Anti-Iran Congress bill could sabotage a deal with Iran: NY Times—The U.S. Congress needs to think hard about the best way to support a verifiable nuclear deal and not play political games that could leave America isolated and the sanctions regime in tatters, the New York Times said in an editorial headlined ‘Sabotaging a Deal With Iran’. The following is an excerpt of the article published on Saturday: Congressional critics of an emerging international agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear program moved with uncommon speed last week to force a vote that could have blown up the negotiations, which are now at a delicate stage. Cooler heads prevailed, and action was delayed. But Congress could still sabotage the deal. Apparently hoping to capitalize on the fiery denunciation of Iran by the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a speech to Congress, the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell on Tuesday pressed for a vote this week on a bill that would require congressional review of any deal. But he backed down when the bill’s supporters insisted on delaying any vote until after March 24, the target set by the United States, five other major powers and Iran for reaching a framework agreement.

SnyderTalk Comment: “A deal with the devil”, as Elise Cooper calls it, is a good assessment of what Obama has in mind.  It’s better to kill the deal now and not pretend that something meaningful was accomplished.  If war with Iran is in our future, it’s better not to play games and allow them to advance any further than necessary.

Is a war with Iran in our future?  It’s their call, but I think the answer is yes.

Michael Hayden: Iranian Nukes: The Problem from Hell—The U.S. is fast closing in on a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, seeing the handwriting on the wall, has hurried to Washington to make an eleventh-hour appeal to Congress. Netanyahu’s haste is understandable. The draft agreement represents what has fairly been described as massive and irreversible concessions to Iran. This agreement will legitimate Iran as a nuclear state. The agreement’s impact on future counterproliferation efforts will be profound as a struggling, isolated regional power has just challenged the world and clearly won. There’s a lot not to like here, and it will be pretty easy to shoot holes in the agreement. Congress should certainly be offered the chance. Codifying a deal of this magnitude on executive prerogative alone would be unconscionable. And what of the talk of an overall American-Iranian rapprochement once the nuclear issue is behind us? The president himself has spoken of a better-behaving Iran as a “very successful regional power” and of an “equilibrium” between Tehran and the Sunni states of the region. The New York Times’ David Brooks even suggests that the president’s big plan is that “Iran would re-emerge as America’s natural partner in the region.” I will be skeptical too that, after an agreement is reached, Iran won’t be the duplicitous, autocratic, terrorist-backing, Hizbullah-supporting, Hamas-funding, region-destabilizing, hegemony-seeking theocracy that it is today. But if you reject this, then what are the options? There was a reason we thought this was the problem from hell while I was in government. It still is. See “Poll: 84 Percent of Americans Say Allowing Iran to Get Nuclear Weapons in 10 Years Is a Bad Idea”.

David Daoud: Rouhani Says Iran Will Never Accept Deal Which Deprives Country of Nuclear Power— Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, said Wednesday that Iran’s nuclear negotiators would never accept a deal with world powers that would curtail the Iranian nation’s “rights” to nuclear power, Al-Manar News – the media outlet of Iranian proxy Hezbollah – report on Wednesday. Rouhani, touted as a moderate, made these remarks in a speech to a session of his cabinet, according to the report. Al-Manar claimed that the president said Iran was willing to demonstrate more transparency on its nuclear program, which Iran has long maintained is being built for exclusively peaceful purposes. However, Rouhani added that if the negotiators are seeking to deprive Iran of its “inalienable right” to pursue nuclear technology, the Islamic Republic would reject such an agreement.

Samuel Westrop: Britain Funding Separateness, Not Integration— Increasingly, segregated religious communities receive state funds in order to remain separate. That extremists would gain a foothold seems inevitable. “We believe that single faith schools will mean more discrimination and a greater stranglehold of the most conservative, anti-women and communal individuals over our children’s education and our communities as a whole.” — Spokesperson for South Asian Women in London, 2002. “Instead of greater integration, this political creed [multiculturalism] has promoted separatism by emphasising differences and encouraging minority ethnic groups to cling to the customs of their homeland. In Birmingham, this has resulted in the rejection of western values by the governing bodies of too many Muslim-dominated schools.” — Manzoor Moghal, British Muslim writer and activist. Britain’s multicultural doctrine was introduced with good intentions. Its failures, however, have outweighed its benefits.

Larry Gordon: UC campuses roiled over claims of anti-Israel bias—The politics of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict keep seeping into campus life at the University of California. In 2010, a group of Muslim student protesters disrupted a UC Irvine speech by the Israeli ambassador and later faced school discipline and criminal prosecution that their defenders considered overly harsh. Last year, the UCLA student government debated whether representatives who took free trips to Israel sponsored by Jewish groups should face sanctions. Over the past year, several UC student governments have voted, after bruising debates, to urge the UC system to sell off stocks in companies that do business with Israel’s military. And provocative posters and graffiti linked to the Mideast debate have shown up on some campuses, offending Muslim and Jewish students.

Douglas Murray: Hate Crimes: US Lynches the Facts— The police are now under serious pressure — as they were in the cases of Trayvon Martin and “Ferguson” — to attribute the crime to causes other than those they may actually think to be the case. There are many difficulties with “hate crimes” legislation. But one of the worst is that it turns the law from being blind into being a tool that can be used not only to drive home a political vision, but one that can be used to ignore and even lobby to change facts. While a lot of people seem not to want to recognize when Jews are killed as Jews, the truth is that a very great number of people appear to want Muslims or Blacks, when they are killed, to have been murdered because they were Muslims or Blacks. This is the disturbing trend that seems to have fed into these moments of Presidential blindness.

Michael Armanious: Heroes in Egypt Confront Islamist Ideology— What made Egyptian President Sisi’s speech remarkable is that he pointed to the problem within and did not blame a Western or Jewish conspiracy for the problems facing Muslims. The sad fact, which Western leaders and peaceful Muslims do not want to know or publicly acknowledge, is that when Western and other leaders say that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, they are simply flat wrong. About a month after Sisi said “We must revolutionize our religion,” Ibrahim Eissa, an Egyptian journalist and another hero of the Middle East backed him up, saying, “when the people of ISIS perpetrate slaughter, murder, rape, immolation, and all those barbaric crimes, they say that they are relying on the sharia. They say that this is based on a certain hadith, on a certain Quranic chapter, on a certain saying of Ibn Taymiyyah, or on some historical event. To tell the truth, everything that ISIS says is correct.” Sisi wants to defeat extremism, not use it as a tool of statecraft. He understands the importance of defeating this expansionist ideology, and deserves the full support of America and the international community in this struggle.

Then she put the child into it and set it among the reeds by the bank of the Nile. 4 His sister stood at a distance to find out what would happen to him.

14--Blessings from Revelation 2

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
