Obama uses State of the Union speech to warn Iran to ‘change its course’ on nuclear ambitions | Mail Online

This  article is a good overview of what is shaping up in the Strait of Hormuz.  I Blogged about this scenario months ago and now it is manifesting and on the world scene.  The Iranians know that closing Hormuz is the one offensive posture they can take that will do the most harm to the west.  Choke off the oil and the already fragile global economy goes into a tail spin, with oil prices perhaps going over $200 a barrel. So here’s my alaysis…

1.  Iran believes in the Imam Mahdi, the one who is to come in a time of chaos that will create a Muslim Caliphate and teach Jesus (Isa) to pray in Jerusalem.  He will also wipe out the Jews.  This apocalyptic belief is very dangerous as the Mullahs, the Islamic clergy that rules Iran, are believers in the Mahdi and point out that the Arab Spring is a fulfilment of the prophecy that states the Mahdi will appear during a time of chaos.  This makes the situation charged with apocalyptic fervor.

2. Russia declared that an attack against Tehran was an attack against Moscow.  You will notice that the chart above only shows Western military and naval strength, but does not show the positioning of Russian ships off Syria and in the Strait.  Is this the hook in the Jaw that the prophet Ezekiel described thousands of years ago?

3. In Politics, Prophecy and the Supernatural, I point out that: the current political landscape is in direct correlation to supernatural events that happened, in some cases millennia ago.  This statement sums up what we  are seeing in the Middle East.  Supernatural events have shaped the body politic in Iran – see point #1 – and thus, the Iranians are basing their militaristic position on those supernatural events.  This also is in conjunction with the so-called Arab Spring.  I  believe that there is a supernatural component to the uprising of millions of people across the Middle East.  If you scroll down to: In Other News. you will find a story about Egypt honoring the uprising.  The Islamist have now won the majority of seats in the newly formed government in Egypt and I believe we will now see Sharia law implemented.  This coupled with the blatant anti-Semitism that is now being proclaimed with slogans like, One nation for a new Holocaustt,  can only exacerbate the endless tension with Israel.

4.  I believe that we are seeing the stage being set for either the Psalm 83 war, the Isaiah 17 prophecy, or the Ezekiel 38 -39 prophecy.  We may, in fact, see these prophecies fulfilled in rapid succession, one after another.

In closing todays post:  The drums of war are beating louder than ever and what may transpire in the Middle East may become the game changer of all time.  I will write about a post that I read about disclosure  tomorrow that I believe ties in with everything I discussed in todays’ BLOG.  The war is a stepping stone to a one world government, a new paradigm that the new-agers and others are waiting for.  We may see events that will leave us stunned.  I believe the war is a prelude to what I call The Coming Great Deception.

Note: I will be appearing on Russ Dizdar’s show tonight at 6:s0 (PST)


Hello L.A Marzulli, I finished your cosmic chess match novel and it was an excellent read, i let some christian friends read it after as well as my dad and they all fell in love, one of his friends just purchased another copy! Just wanted to say good work and I love how you can break down scripture like that and explain what is really going on, because the church’s fail to talk about it Terry

I watched Watchers 3, when I got home…it was well done and very informative and a good job…. 
I was especially intrigued by the Shroud and Hopi discussion ….. maybe Stan Deyo will tells us more what was said to him in Watchers 4.  
Keep up the good work…it seems every Watchers series that comes out is better than the previous. 
Again, keep up the good work. Thanks.

  1. Sorry, no real comment yet. I am without internet at home until Friday and am doing this because I just want all of your brilliant remarks to be waiting for me in my inbox then!

  2. We should change our course on war with Iran. No good can come of that.

    You know, all of this sabre rattling is highly reminiscent of the lead up to pearl harbor. I recall a few years ago reading New york times articles just before PH, and there are similarities, except now we’re more inclined to say war is an option.

    Which also reminds me that I heard on Future Quake before that Cheney had planned to paint boats up to look like iranian ships and do a false flag on American ships so we could go to war. Much like the gulf of tonkin.

    Sadly, I think there will be war, but they just gotta pump up the public support for it enough. It’s like in wrestling, before the big championship match, they have to have these small skirmishes and trash talking to generate excitement and get people to watch the pay per view.

    • Obama’s Deal:

      Obama stopped off shore oil in our gulf!

      #2. We have the mid-east crisis happening.

      #3 Obama & Friends made a US Govt Loan Guarantee to George Soros, for $2 Billion U.S.D.
      so that the Spooky Dude, Soros could invest in Petrobra, Hugo Chavez controlled off shore drilling

      #4. Obama made a Public Statement that the U.S.A. would be their best customer..

      #5. Obama stopped the Keystone Oil Pipeline..

  3. Thanks for the map, L.A. The narrowest point in the strait is said to be only 6 miles. That’s quite a large body of water to close off. And it depends how deep the water is.

    Let’s say that it is possible to close it off. Now, the aircraft carrier can not get out! So far, I don’t think that Russia has been dragged into the situation. It just seems that the Russians did a voluntary move.

    While studying EZ Chs 38 & Ch 39, I’ve noticed that Egypt is not included in the 6 nation Alliance. So, I’m assuming that they have been attacked before the EZ Prophecies occur.

    I can’t find a clue regarding the Chronologies of the various prophecies, IS 11, IS 17, EZ 38 & 39. PS 83.

    And: “Israel shall blossom as a fig tree, then the end shall come!” Is that now? The end of what? The end of 2 ages, I presume. The end of the Church Age, and the end of Daniel’s “Time of the Gentiles”

    “Pray that you are worthy to escape all of these things” (N.T.).

    Our soldiers have left Iraq for the most part…It’s not over with! I’m guessing that our soldiers were moved out of harm’s way because of the future large war.

  4. off topic but i wanted you to see this.A boy has stunned medics with his ability to see in pitch black with eyes that glow in the dark.

  5. Here’s a likely saudi sunni spin, through a chechen mouthpiece….

    “march set as new date of Jewish-American attack on Iran” 1-24-2012, 12:50

    The fifth American fleet based in the Indian Ocean region has two aircraft carriers, and more recently the Pentagon increased without much publicity US military presence in Kuwait, which now hosts up to 15,000 invader troops in the two army brigades and a helicopter squadron.

    In 2002, Pentagon conducted naval exercises called Millennium Challenge, which cost it $ 250 million. At that time, the situation of a military confrontation with “a rogue state” (unfortunately, Russia was not meant there) was simulated in attacking the American fleet with many smaller boats and groups of Martyr bombers. The exercises have shown that the American fleet is unable to cope with such a threat.

  6. Israel has to strike Iran in the next two months according to the Mossad with or without the help of the United States.

    My prediction: Israel will strike Iran soon. When Iran retaliates the US and England will retaliate given an excuse to be drawn in. Thats why they are in the gulf. They are just waiting on Israel.

    Israel wont let the possiblility of another holocaust happen, even if it means a first strike and thousands of lives lost. Iran has called for the destruction Israel. Israel has no option.

    Many changes will occur to all of our lives economically and socially when this attack occurs. And I agree LA its coming soon.

  7. Most Americans are completely unaware of the tactic that Mr Obama used on the people of the United States as he pitched his “transformation plan” upon them last evening. The transformation refers to an age old plan which is but a short jaunt from complete implementation. The plan is well laid out in a book called “new lies for old” which was written by Anatoly Golitsyn, an ex KGB agent who defected to the USA

    Let me quote you from page 337:
    This first is related to a Iranian and Russian alliance.
    ” The objective of the alliance would be to gain control over a strategically vital area of the Middle East”

    This second quote sums up the measure of the transformation Mr Obama often refers to which occurs via disinformation and subversion
    “The overall aim will be to bring about a major and irreversible shift in the balance of world power in favor of the bloc as the preliminary to the final ideological objective of establishing a worldwide federation of communist states”

  8. Come Lord Jesus yeah!

    I feel like a 10 year old knowing he’s going to Disneyland tomorrow and can’t sleep.

  9. Now tell me this. If Israel does the attacking “First” does that cancel out that this war could refer to the one mentioned in Ezekiel or Psalms?

    Would it then fall under the “wars & rumors of wars” list?

    • I could be wrong but I believe Israel will be provoked into striking Iran. I have a feeling that either Hezbollah in Lebanon or Hamas in the Gaza strip will do something stupid and it will leave Israel no choice but to hit their enemies. Of course the world will condemn the Jews for over reacting and then the real fun begins. If anybody is stupid enough to use chemical weapons on Israel, then look out. Then I believe we will see Isaiah 17 be fulfilled and Damascus will be no more. At that point I have a feeling that it will no longer be a regional war and we will see WWW 3 start. I’m not a prophet nor have I had any dreams or visions. This is just how I think it may play out.

    • “Now tell me this. If Israel does the attacking “First” does that cancel out that this war could refer to the one mentioned in Ezekiel or Psalms?”

      Not necessarily. Israel striking first could be the hook in the jaw.

  10. Doesn’t Ezekiel say the whole earth will rejoice after the battle of chapter 35 and will be at peace when 38-39 happens?

    • I sort of agree. My thought is ezekiel 38, etc happens after the millenium. (See the last few chapters of revelation) also, I don’t believe 37 is fulfilled yet either or at least if it is, as the Jews don’t have the Holy Spirit (by believing in Christ.) Unless the outpouring in acts was the fulfillment of that (so I may be wrong altogether)

      Even so, if ezekiel 38 is far off, I do think there could be a “pseudo” ezekiel 38 to fool us or partially fulfill prophecy.

  11. Bill Salus has an analysis here.

    Ezekiel 35, the Arab-Israeli War Before Ezekiel 38, 1-25-2012 (several pages)

    It appears as though Ezekiel 35 finds direct correlation with the war prophesied in Psalm 83. If so, Ezekiel 35 identifies the Arab countries that surround Israel today. They do not appear to be the same countries identified in the coalition described in Ezekiel 38. Therefore, Ezekiel seems to be describing two distinctly different end times wars. The fact that Ezekiel’s chapters 34-39 appear to read chronologically, suggests that the Arab war of Ezekiel 35 precedes the Gog of Magog invasion of Ezekiel 38 and 39.

  12. US court challenges Obama’s presidency
    Wed Jan 25, 2012 10:38AM GMT


    A US court has tossed out a lawsuit challenging President Barack Hussein Obama’s US citizenship and his eligibility to serve as president.
    After nearly a full-term in office, US President Barack Obama’s eligibility for presidency is being challenged as an Atlanta court has summoned him.

    A Georgia judge has ordered President Obama to appear in court on Thursday for a hearing on a complaint that says Obama cannot be president as he is not a natural-born US citizen. It is, however, unclear whether a court could force a sitting president to appear in court.

    California attorney Orly Taitz has filed the lawsuit which is challenging the presence of Obama’s name on the March presidential primary ballot.

    Taitz says she has been working on the case over the last three years.

    “This will be 100 times bigger than Watergate,” she said referring to the 1970s political scandal that brought down former US President Richard Nixon adding, “There are high ranking judges and federal officials who are involved in this cover up. The ramifications of this trial will be enormous.”

    Although Taitz said that she knew the president’s legal team would fight his appearance in the Georgia court, she went on to say that, “If he [Obama] is appealing this decision, then he looks guilty. The whole nation understands this man is a fraud.”

    Taitz’s lawsuit is one of many such lawsuits filed nationwide against the president. Yet Obama campaign officials say such claims have no merit.

    The Georgia judge has denied a motion by Obama’s lawyer to nullify a subpoena that requires Obama to show up.

    The allegations against Obama come as primaries and caucuses are scheduled to be held over the next few months in every US state to vote on the Republican Party competitors before a final nominee is elected at the party convention in August to challenge President Obama in the 2012 elections.


    • A Patriot Group said that Obama’s birth certificate is fraudulent. The people of Kenya put up a ststue of little boy, Obama; saying that he was the first Kenyan to be POTUS. LOL.

      Tues nite State of the Union Assembly; Michelle’s dress cost $2,400. WOW!

  13. I haven’t talked about Obama’s ineligibility for a while but this just reminds me of how incredible it is that arguably the world’s “greatest” democracy somehow allows an ineligible candidate to become President. This just can’t happen without some powerful people pulling strings that they ought not to be pulling. The very fact that he has gone out of his way to make himself look at the very least suspicious, and some would say guilty, should set off all kinds of alarm bells, but it hasn’t. It’s incredible, and the fact that many people don’t see it that way is even more incredible. Is there something supernatural going on here too?

  14. The Psalm 83 war sounds suspiciously like the 1967 Six Day War.

    Edom = Jordan
    Ishmaelites = Arabs in general
    Moab = Western Jordan along the Dead Sea
    Hagrites = Egypt / North Africa
    Gebal = Lebanon
    Ammon = Jordan
    Amalek = Enemies of Israel
    Philistia = Palestinians
    Tyre = Lebanon
    Assyria = Iraq / Syria

    All these players took part in that war, in which Israel’s victory was swift and decisive.

    Psalm 83:4 says “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more”.

    Nine days before this war began Egyptian President Gamal Nasser said “Our basic objective will be the destruction of Israel”.

    Psalm 83:5 says “with one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you”

    Six days before this war began Egypt and Jordan signed a defense pact and invited Iraq to bolster their troop build up. Six months prior Egypt had signed a defense pact with Syria.

    Psalm 83:17 says “May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace”

    It has been said that Egyptian president Gamal Nasser was so ashamed of the humiliating defeat that he killed his own soldiers trying to return home after the war so that they could not tell their stories to the people.

  15. “On anniversary of Arab Spring Mujahideen of Egypt swears allegiance to Emir of al-Qaeda Sheikh al-Zawahri”

    “Meanwhile, the Islamic Internet forums distributed a new treatment of Egyptian Mujahideen Movement “Ansar al-Jihad fi Sina (Helpers of Jihad in the Sinai)”, in which they announced their oath to Emir of al-Qaeda, Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahiri, promising obey him in everything as long as he follows the Quran and the Sunnah.”

    “It should be noted from our part that earlier Mujahideen of Ansar al-Jihad declared about their intention to fight against the apostate regime in Egypt, as well as against “Israel” that occupied Palestine, and the US. […] We promise [a]llah that we will do everything in our power to struggle with the wicked regime and members of the American-Jewish alliance”. “

  16. I just got an email about Hal Lindsay’s show this Friday (and other days on various stations) that reinforces my opinion that he and L.A. have the same take on what is happening with Israel….well, except for Hal’s insistance on a pre trib rapture……I am gonna watch. The show is to be about the error of replacement theology. Here is an excerpt from the email:

    And this dangerous doctrine directly affects you, whether you know it or not. Simply put, if God, as the Preterists insist, reneged on His “irrevocable” covenant with Abraham, then what assurance do you have that He’ll stand by the promise of eternal life in heaven that He extended to you when you accepted the gift of pardon Christ purchased with His atoning death on the cross?

    Fortunately for all believers, though, God is no liar. He stands by His promises and covenants. That is the foundation of our hope in Christ.

    God Bless,

    Hal Lindsey

    • The argument in Hal’s email is entirely misguided.

      Believing that the church is Israel does not mean that God broke his promise to Abraham. On the contrary, through the church the covenant promises are kept. The Bible is clear that believers in Christ are children of Abraham. And those who do not believe have been broken off.

      Galatians 3:7 Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham.
      Galatians 3:14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
      Ephesians 2:11:13 At that time you were excluded from citizenship in Israel…But now in Jesus you have been brought near.

      Matthew 21:43 Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit
      Romans 11:17 some of the branches have been broken off
      Romans 11:21 God did not spare the natural branches
      Romans 9:6 For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel.

      Nobody said God reneged on his promise to Abraham, rather that we through Jesus are now part of that promise. And those who do not believe have been broken off. To deny what I’m saying is to deny the scriptures I quoted above. I think they are quite clear.
