Iran Proposes Joint Naval Exercise With Russia

After reportedly dispatching warships to the Atlantic Ocean, Iran has now offered Russia a proposal to carry out joint naval exercises in May, according to informed Middle Eastern security...

“Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.” Ezekiel 38:2-6

TEL AVIV — After reportedly dispatching warships to the Atlantic Ocean, Iran has now offered Russia a proposal to carry out joint naval exercises in May, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.



The officials told KleinOnline that Moscow is considering the proposal but that there was no immediate decision from Russia. The officials said the proposal was likely a response to Iranian information of U.S. vessels in the Persian Gulf. Until now there have been reports the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman has deliberately spent time outside the Gulf as a gesture to Iran while the West attempts to implement its interim nuclear agreement with Tehran. However, the Iranians believe the U.S. made a decision to send warships toward the Emirates and Bahrain.  That claim could not be immediately substantiated. Last week, Iranian state-run media quoted senior naval commander Adm. Afshin Rezayee Haddad saying his country sent a destroyer and helicopter-carrying supply ship to the Atlantic.  He said the ships will sail close to the U.S. Maritime border.

While Russia may not have responded to the Iranian offer of a joint naval exercise, Tehran’s Ambassador to Moscow, Mehdi Sanayee, told reporters yesterday the two countries are looking for ways to expand ties. “Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin have agreed on the expansion of ties between Tehran and Moscow,” Sanayee said. Sanayee was speaking one day after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Russia’s foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, talked by phone about regional issues. source – Aaron Klein

It’s exciting to see prophecy being fulfilled in our time! Bless all of you who love the word of God and the Lord Jesus with the Holy spirit!

  • @Debra: Just wait until after the rapture occurs 😉

    Rev 11:11-14 KJV – And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

    And guess what the third woe will be unto the world 😉

    Rev 12:10-12 KJV – And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

    P.S. The Tribulation is NOT Wrath, rather Persecution 😉

    Anyway, if you’d like to know more on things above, feel free to email me: 😉

    The Lord is finally opening my understanding of Revelation mysteries 🙂

  • Debra; Just keep praying and believe in your Faith in Jesus Salvation, the rest is easy.

    This summer will be the beginning Pslams 83 war between Israel and Iran. And if Hezbolla has anything to do with it, Isaiah 17:1 will also be fulfilled prophecy.

  • MRH: Can you prove it by documented evidence without a doubt in scripture the Tribulation is not God’s WRATH?

  • MRH: First half is our persecution, but the whole 7 years is God’s Wrath on the unrighteous.

  • @STL: No, you are dead wrong I’m afraid 🙁 And yes I can prove everything from scripture alone, but not tonight. I’m in the process of building a new web site and video which will; explain much. But such things don’t magically happen overnight.

    However I will clue you in unto just one new thing I discovered. The two witnesses can’t only be two people. Why? Because of this part of passage above.. “And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud”.

    By Strongs 1st define, a cloud indicates a group or throng, and that fits perfectly with resurrection event brother. Remember the ‘great cloud of witnesses’ relating to the ancient saints? 😉

    Anyway, ponder what God revealed unto me this morning. For now the song birds calls unto me again 😉

  • Steven T. LaRue:

    MRH: First half is our persecution, but the whole 7 years is God’s Wrath on the unrighteous.

    @STL: Actually the first half is global peace, the last half persecution of saints, followed by rapture. Afterwards comes the devils wrath, followed by Gods wrath. Things will happen in succession. Gods and Satan’s wrath is NOT present during tribulation. Trust me on this much at least brother for now.. later I will figure out more 🙂

  • MRH: question, from your lack of faith not believing the rapture could come before the Tribulation, or maybe the next day before the Triblation, are you going to stand and tesify that it will never possibly happen before the 7 year Tribulation?

    One thing I learned from studying scriptures, that anything is possible to God!

    So since you believe it could not happen before the Tribulation, the rapture. I would call that a lack in faith on your part. And maybe God will also see that as a lack of faith from you, and you’ll be left behind to suffer the Tribulation and persecution from the unrighteous people that believe your the enemy of the Antichrist.

    Are going to take that chance to deal with the unrighteous ones?

  • @STL: Song awaits, so I’ll be brief. As I said prior I have biblical proof unto all things I’ve stated, however I’ve got other agendas to deal with tonight, so we’ll chat tomorrow on things.. OK?
