In a night raid, the Israeli naval forces seized a ship with hundreds of tons of Iranian weaponry on board the ship known as Francop captured near Cyprus carrying the arms sent by Iran and destined for Syria and Hezbollah.
The deputy commander of the Israeli navy said the transfer of such amounts of weapons is done in order to create a balance of terror with Israel by Iran, Syria and Hezbollah.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
An Israeli raid on a ship loaded with Iranian weapons destined for Syria and Hezbollah is evidence that Bible prophecy is closer than ever before to being fulfilled.
For the third time within the year, Iran has disregarded international law and UN national security resolutions that forbid it to transfer weaponry. This time it was a ship loaded with hundreds of tons of Iranian weapons, weapons that are considered very advanced weaponry including antiaircraft missiles.
For years it has been known that Syria is the conduit for Iranian weapons being delivered to Hezbollah in Southern Lebanon. You must remember that Hezbollah is not Lebanese. They are part of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard sent to Lebanon in 1982 by the late Ayatollah Khomeneih. Iran, Syria and Hezbollah want to remove the Jewish state of Israel from the Middle East, even the entire world that their name be forgotten forever, Psalm 83:4.
Bible prophecy reveals that Syria will be the first nation to attack Israel, then a number of other Islamic and Arab nations will join the fight. The point about Syria being first is found in Daniel 11:40-41 where Syria is mentioned by its Biblical name, the King of the North. Iran is the Persia mentioned in Ezekiel 38:5 and you must remember until 1936, Iran was known as Persia, in fact they still speak the Persian language in Iran.
Ezekiel 38:8 and 11 say the attack by Iran and Syria will take place when there is peace in the Middle East, which is exactly what every world leader is working for right now.
