UK: Iranian vessels tried to block British vessel in Gulf


Oil Tanker

(Worthy News) - Britain said Thursday that three Iranian vessels unsuccessfully tried to impede the passage of a British commercial vessel through the Strait of Hormuz, signaling a further escalation of tensions over a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

The Iranian vessels only turned away after receiving “verbal warnings” from a U.K. navy vessel accompanying the commercial vessel British Heritage, the U.K. government said in a statement. “We are concerned by this action and continue to urge the Iranian authorities to de-escalate the situation in the region,” it said.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard denied the allegations, saying if it had received orders to seize any ships it would have executed them immediately. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  1. For now Heaven is holding back the wind of the WW3. This war, however, is maturing. Moses has already written: “And ships from the direction of Kittim [US Navy], and will afflict Asshur [Russia] and will afflict Eber [remaining enemies, including Iran and China].” (Numbers 24:24a) It will be suicidal mission. This armada will be destroyed forever. (Numbers 24:24b)

    This time it will be a world war not only by name. The “great sword” will also be used. (Revelation 6:4) Jesus characterized him in this way: "Terrors [φοβητρα] both [τε] and [και] unusual phenomena [σημεια - unusual occurrences, transcending the common course of nature] from [απ] sky [ουρανου] powerful [μεγαλα] will be [εσται]." (Luke 21:11)
    Some ancient manuscripts contain the words "and frosts" [και χειμωνες].
    The Aramaic Peshitta: "and will be great frosts" [וסתוא רורבא נהוון]. We call this today "nuclear winter".
    In Mark 13:8 there are also words of Jesus: "and disorders" [και ταραχαι] (in the sense of confusion and chaos).
    The Aramaic Peshitta: "and confusion" [ושגושיא] (on the state of public order).
    There will be also significant tremors, food shortages and epidemics along the length and breadth of the regions as a result of using this weapon.

    Jesus presented here a complete picture of the consequences of the global nuclear war. Many try to adapt this picture to the nineteenth or almost the entire twentieth century. Jesus announced: "For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am'; and 'The appointed time has approached'. Do not follow them." (Luke 21:8) "For many will come in the name of me, saying: 'I am the anointed'; and will mislead many." (Matthew 24:5)

    But all this, however, could not last more than 100 years! All this was to accompany only this war. Jesus stated: "All these are but the beginning of the birth pains." (Matthew 24:7, 8)
