British PM Tony Blair warns Iran as the US is in the largest demonstration of force in the Gulf since the invasion of Iraq

British PM Tony Blair has warned Iran that if efforts to secure the release of fifteen Royal Navy personnel is not successful, the Brits will enter a different phase. This pronouncement made as Downing Street said they could prove that the naval group had not ventured into Iranian waters.

Meanwhile, the US Navy is involved in military exercises just off the coast of Iran with more than ten thousand US personnel, the largest demonstration of force in the Persian Gulf since the invasion of Iraq in 2003. World leaders have speculated that Iran is either trying draw attention away from its nuclear program, or President Ahmadinejad is ready to spark the war that he believes could bring the Muslim messiah.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As tensions increase in the Persian Gulf, the prophetic scenario for this region of the world in the Last Days is coming better into focus.

The incident between Iran and Great Britain with the taking at gunpoint of fifteen UK naval personnel seems to be only intensifying as diplomatic maneuvering continues. With the stern warning from British PM Tony Blair, the pressure has been ratcheted up to a large degree. Iran, as past performance shows, is not one to back down to pressure. Couple this scenario with the fact that the US Navy is now involved with its largest military exercise in the Persian Gulf, just off the coast of Iran, and you have a mix that could explode at any moment, which by the way is just what Bible prophecy calls for in this region of the world during the End Times.

The Psalmist, in Psalm 83, wrote of an alignment of nations that will join forces to take on the Western world who backs and supports Israel. Ezekiel, an ancient Jewish prophet, has much to say about that same alignment of nations in Ezekiel 38, where the Middle Eastern states go to war and Iran is one of the major players, that's Ezekiel 38:5 when it mentions Persia - the biblical name for Iran.

End Time prophecies that will be fulfilled are coming better into focus today.
