Bible prophesies which have been fulfilled and others which are in the midst of coming true are more visible than ever in the Middle East. Just as Scripture states, war appears to be brewing with Jerusalem as the epicenter. Many countries are gathering their armies around Israel as never before, and they are in conflict for varying reasons as never before.
Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu stated, "If I had to say what is our greatest challenge in the Middle East, to both our countries, to our Arab partners, it's encapsulated in one word: Iran."
The Israeli Defense Force is currently in the midst of a large training exercise with the United States military which is the primary bodyguard of Israel. From March 4th until March 15th, the exercise, called 'Juniper Cobra 2018,' is the ninth time that these types of exercises have taken place in Israel since 2001.
Brigadier General Zvika Haimovich, chief of the Israeli Air Defense Command, stated, "The Juniper Cobra 2018 exercise will serve as an opportunity for the IDF, and the IAF in particular, to enhance operational capabilities in the face of high-trajectory threats."
Juniper Cobra is an exercise with the Israeli Defense Forces to prepare U.S. forces to counter ballistic missile threats to Israel. Over 2,500 U.S. troops who are usually based in Europe are involved in the exercises, along with 1,400 Israeli missile defense, logistics, and other IDF units.
United States Air Force Commander Lieutenant General Richard Clark, stated, "The United States and Israel enjoy a strong and enduring military to military partnership built on a trust that has been developed over decades of cooperation, providing us with the opportunity to bolster interoperability and develop seamless integration with our Israeli partners."
Over the past weeks, the air and sea exercises have been simulating sets of circumstances in which the United States military would aid Israel Aerial Defense Forces. They execute computerized replications of rocket threat scenarios coming from assorted regions.
Just a few years ago, no one would have believed that Iran would be shipping armaments across land routes to Hezbollah through Iraq and into Syria. Hezbollah currently has approximately 150,000 rockets pointed at Israel. What would have been even more far-fetched to consider just two years ago is that Iran and Russia would have its own land, sea, and air bases, set up on the doorstep of Israel. Just as stated in Scripture, Turkey will be involved in an upcoming battle within the borders of Israel…already engaged in military matters closer to Israel as never before.
Ultimately, what most of the world leaders involved with deploying their armies near Israel and most of the world's population do not realize, is that this is all leading to a battle of 'truth.' In due course, some of these actions of major players in Bible prophesy will have evil pitted against evil, and this in part is what leads into everyone to know who is the Spirit of Truth; Jesus Christ.
