Prophecy and politics are quickly
converging as US President Donald Trump on Tuesday
withdrew US involvement in the nuclear deal with Iran,
known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA),
while a conflict between Israel and Iran looms imminent
As pundits scratch their heads over this political
Gordian Knot, Rabbi Pinchas Winston, an end-of-days
expert, suggests that “prophetic reverse engineering”
makes the solution and outcome of this political dilemma
In background, Trump announced that the US is
withdrawing from the deal concerning Iran’s nuclear
program signed in 2015 with the five permanent members
of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany.
In his speech, the president identified Iran as “the
leading state sponsor of terror.”
“No action taken by the regime has been more
dangerous than its pursuit of nuclear weapons and the
means of delivering them,” the president said. “In
theory, the so-called Iran deal was supposed to protect
the United States and our allies from the lunacy of an
Iranian nuclear bomb… In fact, the deal allowed Iran to
continue enriching uranium and, over time, reach the
brink of a nuclear breakout.”
He said that at the heart of the Iran deal was “a
giant fiction: that a murderous regime desired only a
peaceful nuclear energy program. Today, we have
definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie.”
The president based his statements on findings presented
last week by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
in what is being dubbed the “Iran lied” speech.
“It didn’t bring calm, it didn’t didn’t bring peace,
and it never will,” Trump said.“America will not
be held hostage to nuclear blackmail… We will not allow
a regime that chants ‘Death to America’ to gain access
to the most deadly weapons on earth.”
After the announcement, the president signed a
memorandum reinstating the high level of economic
sanctions that were lifted as a result of the JCPOA. The
president also threatened that any country that aids
Iran may also be sanctioned.
The announcement comes three days before the May 12
deadline the president set for the other countries to
renegotiate the terms in a manner that would better
safeguard Iranian compliance.
The reaction to Trump’s decision was immediate.
The Iranian Parliament held an impromptu ceremony in
which a US flag was burned while politicians chanted “Death
to America.” British Prime Minister Theresa May,
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and French President
Emmanuel Macron released a joint statement saying the
decision was a matter of “regret and concern.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry released a statement
calling Trump’s decision “a new confirmation of
In stark contrast, the response from Israel to Trump’s
announcement was overwhelmingly positive. Netanyahu’s
praised Trump’s “courageous leadership” in making
“a historic move,” underscoring the strength of
the alliance between Israel and the US.
“Israel fully supports President Trump’s bold
decision today to reject the disastrous nuclear deal
with the terrorist regime in Tehran,” Netanyahu said
in a statement broadcast live from his office directly
after Trump’s announcement.
“The removal of sanctions under the deal has already
produced disastrous results,” said Netanyahu. “The
deal didn’t push war further away, it actually brought
it closer. The deal didn’t reduce Iran’s aggression, it
dramatically increased it. We see this across the entire
Middle-East…and mostly in Syria where Iran is trying to
establish military bases from which to attack Israel.”
As both Trump and Netanyahu stated, the three years
since the signing of the JCPOA have seen an increase in
Iran’s disruptive influence in the region. In a timely
illustration of that point, the US withdrawal from the
agreement was followed by a missile attack against an
Iranian base in Syria.
“Nine fighters belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary
Guard Corps or pro-Iranian Shiite militias have been
killed,” Rami Abd el-Rahman, director of the
Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told
Though the Israeli government did not comment on the
strike or its origins, northern Israel has been on
high-alert in recent days due to “abnormal Iranian
movements in Syria,” as described in an IDF tweet.
The IDF told the press that missile defense batteries
had been deployed in northern Israel and there is “high
preparedness” of IDF troops for an attack.
On Sunday, broadcast media warned Israelis that an
Iranian attack was expected in retaliation for an
airstrike in Syria last month that killed seven Iranian
“Israel has recently identified with certainty
Iranian preparations to fire at the north,” Channel
10 said. “We are not on the eve of war with Iran… but
Iran is very determined to carry out an attack.”
Though the situation seems complex, involving many
nations with diverse interests, Winston, a prolific
author on end-of-days subjects, described a relatively
straightforward technique for understanding the
developing political situation.
“We just have to employ prophetic
reverse-engineering,” Rabbi Winston told Breaking
Israel News. “It should be easy since we already know
what the end is going to be: Moshiach (Messiah). Now we
just have to understand how these pieces of current
events fit into the plan the prophets already laid out.”
“When you look at it that way, everything is
connected,” Rabbi Winston said. “It is no
coincidence that Trump withdrew from the Iran deal at
the same time Iran is confronting Israel in Syria.”
Rabbi Winston noted that so many disparate current
events are actually connected at the Messiah endpoint.
“Even though it is not directly connected to the Iran
deal, moving the embassy to Jerusalem is an essential
part of the geula,” Rabbi Winston said. “The
embassy is political and not part of the Temple but it
is clearly a step in the process. On a political level,
it is entirely incongruous but in a geula context, it
makes total sense.”
The nascent Sanhedrin, an initiative to reinstate the 71
elders in a Biblically mandated high-court, had high
praise for Trump.
“President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu are
emissaries from Hashem [God] sent to save Israel from
another Holocaust that all the other nations of the
world were into on carrying out,” Rabbi Hillel
Weiss, the Sanhedrin’s spokesman, told Breaking Israel
News, citing a verse in Psalms that he felt best
described the JCPOA.
They say, “Let us wipe them out as a nation;
Yisrael’s name will be mentioned no more.” Unanimous in
their counsel they have made an alliance against You—
“His withdrawal from the counsel of the evil nations
reinforces our belief that Trump is following in the
footsteps of the Persian King Cyrus who ended the
Babylonian exile and helped the Jews build the Second
Temple,” Rabbi Weiss said. “Whether or not there
will be a war, Trump foiled these plans. This day should
be a day of joy and giving thanks to God.”
All of these rumors of war are reminding us of the
biblical prophecies about a last days Armageddon. It may
seem like a confusing world yet scripture does seem to
make a case that Armageddon is 3 dimensional and even
possibly a 4 dimensional battle. Understanding
Armageddon through this prism creates a consistency with
scriptures and throws out all the other interpretations
that seem to confuse and muddy the Bibles plan for man
in the future.
Yet these are still major questions that need answers.
Who will this battle involve?
Will America be involved?
Is it conceivable that Israel could be destroyed or
over run with invading armies?
Who is the King of the North and the King of the
South mentioned in Daniel 11?
Why is the Euphrates river so significant in
relation to end time prophecy?
Will all nations admire the Antichrist during his
new world order utopia or will there be resentment
from specific regions?
Will Russia be involved and if so why?
