A recent IAEA inspection report along with smuggled Iranian documents point to Iran being able to now quickly make nuclear bombs when it desired, potentially in time for spring 2022...
Another Unexpected Confirmation
This is now the third "confirmation" article in a row about the Mideast nuclear war that I expect to happen next year in the spring. A little background: back in April I had prayed and told God that it’s OK if I am wrong about this next part of my timeline in 2022 and I end up looking foolish. God responded by giving me a new insight into something I missed in the key Mideast war prophecy in Psalm 83.
Then a trusted prophet-in-training who had not seen that article surprised me with a prophetic word they had just received in an answer to their own question to God on timing. They said the exact date of the Mideast nuclear war was given to them 400 days from the date they received the word. There was a second question they asked about which was also answered at the same time, one which I can confirm privately is correct. Therefore I have confidence that the word on the date will turn out right, too. Either way, the main point is the date falls in spring 2022 which is my original timing expectation based on deductions from my dreams.
Now another confirmation which I was not asking or looking for. Given the challenges in my personal life lately, you can believe me when I say I had no ideas or plans to write anything on prophecy this month. I have not cared to stay abreast of international events, that’s for sure. But then a humble elder brother in Christ who I love but have not heard from since last year messaged me with questions about the Mideast war and what it will take to bring Israel to nuke her enemies. After I answered, he followed up with some big news on that topic which I had missed:
The IAEA reports that Iran has enriched uranium to 60% purity a level that only bomb-making countries pursue on the way to 90% weapons grade uranium-235. It has enough uranium at all levels of enrichment to create a few bombs when they choose to.
Iran’s Role in Damascus’ Destruction
Why is this significant? Because Iran has for almost two decades now been who I have had my eyes on as the culprit behind the end of Damascus. After I became aware of the Mideast nuclear war prophecy and added it to my timeline, I wondered how it would happen. I concluded that only another nuclear capable nation would attack a nuclear power like Israel. Then in 2002, it was revealed that Iran had secretly been enriching uranium with thousands of centrifuges. That seemed to be the answer to my question. To find out now from an official source that Iran is clearly pursuing nuclear weapons is a confirmation that Iran can indeed be the one who triggers the Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83 prophetic event.
The next question one must consider given that my expected time for this event is now around one year away, is can Iran produce working, deliverable bombs in time for the attack on Israel in spring 2022?
If Iran cannot possibly do it then Iran must be ruled out as a candidate for who starts the nuclear Mideast war. Another candidate must be found.
Iran’s Intermittent Journey Towards the Bomb
Of course, if Iran’s leaders are smart, they have made sure that IAEA inspectors can access only part of their nuclear weapons program. Iran would have other activities and capabilities that they have kept shrouded. Since we must admit we do not know all that Iran is doing, we could end this article right here and state that there is nothing to say they could not achieve bombs in a year based on the little we know.
It turns out we have more to go on than just inspections and speculation. You may remember the big news in 2018 when Israel raided Tehran to steal documentation on their nuclear program. Benjamin Netanyahu held a press release with the headline “Iran Lied” referring to how the internal documents showed Iran was indeed pursuing nuclear weapons despite what they were telling the world.
Three years on, a new book analyzing those smuggled documents was just released last month. It has several important revelations that lend credence to the conclusion that “Tehran’s scientists could produce a bomb quickly if they acquire the necessary fissile material and an order from the country’s leaders to do so.”
- “top-secret weapons program was preparing for a “cold test” of key components for a nuclear bomb by late 2003 and could have quickly progressed to true nuclear detonations.
- “Work on an Iranian nuclear weapon was halted in 2003, but by then Iran’s scientists had mastered nearly all the technical challenges of bombmaking and needed only a reliable source of fissile fuel”
- “Iran has accumulated enough enriched uranium (meaning it has an increased concentration of the isotope uranium-235) to construct several bombs should its leaders choose to purify the heavy metal to the 90% level typically used in weapons”
- "If it gets nukes, Iran could fire using cruise missiles"
If I were living in Israel, these revelations would make me feel insecure and nervous. The new Mossad chief seems to be well aware of the advanced state of Iran's nuclear program given his warnings on what lengths Israel would go to against Iran.
But...Why Would Iran Attack A Superior Nuclear Power like Israel?
OK, Iran was close in 2003 to becoming a nuclear power and its scientists are still capable of making that a reality by 2022 if its leaders so desire. Yet...why would anyone desire such a clearly inadvisable thing?
That last question is one I asked my humble friend directly in our chat. Why would Iran, once it acquires a couple of nukes, attack a nation that mastered nuclear bombs and their delivery decades ago? His answer was as follows:
“Perhaps what we are missing is that Iran has a messianic self image that can only be realized in a Post Israel Mid East.”
When I did a little research on this idea like I did his other idea, I found merit. This apocalyptic religious aspect of Iran has long concerned the nations surrounding Iran.
My research reminded me that Iran is a theocracy or theocratic republic. Unlike the US with separation of church and state, Iran’s political leadership are religious leaders. In 2013, Saeed Ghasseminejad wrote an article called “Iran’s Apocalyptic Policy Makers.” He wrote:
“Two of the most lunatic and apocalyptic high-ranking figures in Iran are Ayatollah Ali Khamenei himself and his now disgraced one-time protégé, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. While Khamenei deeply believes his task is to prepare for Mahdi’s appearance, Ahmadinejad takes the apocalyptic narrative to an unprecedented level of lunacy and weirdness, even by the Islamic republic’s measures. He believes, for example, that the real reason behind the US invasion of Iraq was to search for the Hidden Imam and to postpone his appearance. Many observers believe Khamenei chose Ahmadinejad as president mainly because of their shared belief in this apocalyptic version of Islam.Article continues below...
"Depart From Me, I Never Knew you!" - Jesus
Jesus predicted that he will tell many sincere believers to basically "get lost" instead of welcoming them into the Kingdom. So...who are they and what did they miss or do wrong? In this study, get those answers and the one requirement for salvation Jesus taught (that Christianity misses) so that you can make sure you don't hear these dreaded words yourself!
“While many experts tell us Iran is a rational, pragmatic regime like any other in the world, all the facts shout that it is not. A large number of Iranian officials and decision makers have deeply rooted apocalyptic beliefs. Underestimating this radical ideology even as the Iranian regime is on its way to building a nuclear bomb can lead to dangerously wrong conclusions. The suggestion taking hold of late that a nuclear armed Iran is not the end of the world may unfortunately be dead wrong.”
When asked in 2019 by a journalist what he thought about the recent Iranian aggression, here’s what she reported:
“I think policymakers in the West should take the IRI official’s apocalyptic vision seriously,” he told me, “because that is what drives Tehran’s decision-making process. Preparing the ground for the reappearance of the Hidden Imam is the Islamic Republic’s raison d’etre. Ignoring it leads to misinterpretation of Tehran’s actions and miscalculation by Western policymakers.” Short version: When assessing the next scenario vis-à-vis Iran’s aggression and seemingly relentless push toward conflict, don’t overlook their apocalyptic theology. It’s more significant than most of us imagine.
You don’t have to be familiar with radical Shiite Muslims to know that religion can lead people to make radical, irrational-seeming decisions. I knew that already as a Christian from personal experience in some of my own decisions (like moving to Costa Rica sight unseen in 1999 due to Y2k) and from studying the predictions of many Christian doomsday theorists over the last few decades.
Attacking an established nuclear power like Israel requires a good amount of irrationality in the decision process. Now that I am reacquainted with the apocalyptic religious vision of Iran’s leadership and nuclear program scientists, I no longer question why or whether Iran would launch such an ill-advisable and ill-fated campaign.
Get Your Own Confirmations
As always, I encourage you to not trust my opinion or my conclusions but to take it to God for your own personal confirmation. That's something I’ve been advising a lot lately in my writing. Yet it occurs to me you may not know how to do it. If you don’t know how to get answers from God in your walk with God, it’s time to learn how.
You do it by expecting God to answer you on a question important to you and then making the sacrifice of time and focus to be slow enough to hear his answer. That's a challenge in our modern world and could explain why you don't regularly get answers from God already. A suitable question to start with before getting into external questions like timelines is to ask God about your personal salvation, whether you are saved according to the actual requirements for salvation his son spoke about. You may be shocked at what you hear. You may hear a whole lot of non-confirming nothing for a while. Then if you persist, something may come to put doubt into the question for the first time in your life. Then if you persist through the discomfort of what you are hearing, God will guide you to the answer to know how to be sure you're saved.
Once you are adept enough to hear from God, then go ahead to confirm insights like you hear from me. If he confirms the imminency of the end that I teach, you might then ask him what to do to prepare yourself mentally and spiritually for it. When this war happens it means that the final seven years are not delayed. Are you ready for that reality to come possibly next year? Let's learn from the surprise of COVID last year and make sacrifices to be ready for the next “birth pain” coming potentially next year on the way to the end. God is the only one who can guide you personally there, so earnestly seek him out as your guide. Your survival in the end times may depend on being able to hear from God.
