An ongoing US-led naval exercise involving 20 nations from the Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, and North America is preparation in order to ensure rapid control of the Persian Gulf in case of a war with Iran.
The US said in cooperation with Arab and NATO allies they are operating in every section of the gulf with the exception of the Strait of Hormuz.
The fear in the Persian Gulf is that Iran might drop mines in the gulf or at the Strait of Hormuz in an effort to slow down freedom of navigation thus stopping the flow of much needed oil supplies to the entire world.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
As massive naval exercises take place in the Persian Gulf, the stage is indeed being set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Twenty nations from around the world have been involved in the US-led naval exercises in the Persian Gulf in order to protect the freedom of navigation in this strategic waterway in the Middle East. The flow of a majority of the world's oil supply must travel out of the gulf through the Strait of Hormuz for delivery globally. With the threat of a war with Iran on the horizon, preparation must be made to ensure stability in the gulf. It is reality that has caused many world leaders to be concerned about the Iranian threat. According to Bible prophecy this concern is valid and the Middle East could indeed explode into an all-out war with not only Iran but other Middle Eastern nations as well.
Ezekiel 38:5 mentions Persia, modern day Iran, as one of the alignment of nations that will bring about war to the Middle Eastern region. Syria and Egypt are listed in Bible prophecy as nations that will be in that mix as well, Daniel 11:40. Libya, mentioned in Daniel 11:43 and Ezekiel 38:5 will join this same coalition of nations which will focus on the Jewish state of Israel that will actually bring about a regional war in the last days. The focus of the world has been on this volatile region as saber-rattling continues daily.
Naval exercises in the Persian Gulf are an indication that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
