Iran says a Pre-emptive Attack will Lead to the Destruction of Israel. According to The Associated Press, Iran’s defense minister warned that an Israeli attack on Iran will lead to the collapse of the Jewish state. In one of the strongest statements from Iran, Gen. Ah-mad Va-hi-di indicated Tehran would punish Israel should it attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. His comments on Press TV come as Israel has recently stepped up its verbal threats that it may attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.
An Israeli attack on Iran might pull the U.S. into a new war. According to The Associated Press, an Israeli pre-emptive attack on Iran’s nuclear sites could draw the U.S. into a new Mideast conflict, a prospect dreaded by a war-weary Pentagon wary of new entanglements. That could mean pressing into service the top tier of American firepower — warplanes, warships, special operations forces and possibly airborne infantry — with unpredictable outcomes in one of the world’s most volatile regions. Ka-rim Sad-jad-pour, a Middle East specialist at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said “Israel can commence a war with Iran, but it may well take U.S. involvement to conclude it.”
God promised Israel in Deuteronomy 20:1: “When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.”
West Virginia Officials Ask Government to Provide Christians with an Exemption from the Proposed Real ID Act. According to the Register-Herald, Sen. Clark Barnes and Philip Hudok spoke in support of a bill which seeks to extend an exemption to the Real ID on religious grounds. Hudok told the Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, “If we as Christians comply with the Real ID act, we would be enrolled into a global system of identification that directly links our body through biometrics to our ability to buy or sell.”
The Bible says in Revelation 13:16 and 17 that during the Tribulation, the Antichrist “causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

In closing, remember the words of the Lord in Matthew 24:42: “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” Matthew 24:44 says, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
If you are not ready, John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” May I encourage you to accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour today so that you can be ready for Jesus Christ’s return.
