Trump Takes Iran Seriously, Here Is Full List Of Firepower That The US Military Is Sending To Middle East Right Now To Counter Latest Iranian Threat

The US military is sending a ton of massive firepower including the USS Abraham Lincoln to take on threats from Iran — here’s everything headed its way.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

In response to the threat of a possible attack on US military forces by Iran, the US military decided to send additional firepower to the Middle East. This includes an aircraft carrier with a full carrier air wing, one cruiser, four destroyers, a group of heavy bombers, fighters, an expeditionary warship, and a surface-to-air missile battery.

On Monday, we told you that in response to threats from Iran, the US military had authorized the USS Abraham Lincoln to be deployed to the Middle East. Yesterday, the Lincoln passed through Egypt’s Suez Canal. Iran said they could take out the Lincoln with a single missile, and guess what? The United States is talking them seriously and sending quite an impressive array of ships, planes and firepower. The full list is in the article here below.

NBC News reports that “In a highly unusual move, national security adviser John Bolton convened a meeting at CIA headquarters last week with the Trump administration’s top intelligence, diplomatic and military advisers to discuss Iran, according to six current U.S. officials. The meeting came amid rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran, as the Trump administration piles pressure on Tehran’s economy through crippling sanctions. Days after it took place, Bolton, citing indications of an increased threat from Iran, announced the deployment of a U.S. aircraft carrier strike group and a bomber squadron to the Persian Gulf. He warned Tehran that “any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.”

It is very unlikely that the US military would send this much raw firepower simply as a ‘show of force’. The last time they sent this much at one time to the Middle East, precision guided missiles rained down on Syria in response to chemical attacks on their own people. Trump is planning something for the Iranians, something big indeed.

The US is sending a ton of firepower to take on Iran — here’s everything headed its way

FROM BUSINESS INSIDER: The US military is sending a carrier strike group, a bomber task force, fighter jets, an amphibious landing ship, and a surface-to-air missile battery to the Middle East as a show of force to Iran. There is a ton of firepower heading that way.

The USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group, which consists of the carrier and its powerful carrier air wing, as well as one cruiser and four destroyers, began moving into the region with an unspecified number of B-52 Stratofortress heavy long-range bombers earlier this week.

US Air Forces Central Command announced Thursday that F-15C Eagle fighter jets were repositioned within the theater to “defend US forces and interests in the region.” On Friday, the Pentagon announced that the USS Arlington, an amphibious landing ship, and a Patriot surface-to-air missile battery are on their way.

These assets, according to US Central Command, are being currently deployed in response to “clear indications that Iranian and Iranian proxy forces were making preparations to possibly attack US forces in the region.”

Aircraft carrier: USS Abraham Lincoln

united-states-deploys-aircraft-carrier-uss-abraham-lincoln-to-middle-east-iran

Adm. John Richardson, the chief of naval operations, previously described aircraft carriers as a “tremendous expression of US national power.” A carrier strike group is an even stronger message. “CSGs are visible and powerful symbols of US commitment and resolve,” US European Command said in a statement on Tuesday.

The USS Abraham Lincoln, a mobile sea-based airfield, is the lead ship for the carrier strike group that bears its name and is outfitted with a highly capable carrier air wing.

Carrier air wing: fighters, electronic-attack aircraft, early-warning aircraft, and rotary aircraft

Carrier Air Wing Seven consists of F/A-18 Super Hornets, EA-18G Growler electronic-attack aircraft, E-2 Hawkeye early-warning aircraft, and a number of rotary aircraft from multiple squadrons capable of carrying out a variety of operational tasks.

Cruiser: USS Leyte Gulf

Ticonderoga-Class-Guided-Missile-Cruiser-USS-Leyte-Gulf

Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruisers are multi-role warships that run heavily armed with 122 vertical-launch-system (VLS) cells capable of carrying everything from Tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles to surface-to-air missiles and anti-submarine-warfare rockets.

4 destroyers: USS Bainbridge, USS Gonzalez, USS Mason, and USS Nitze

Like the larger cruisers, destroyers are also multi-mission vessels. Armed with 90 to 96 VLS cells, these ships have air-and-missile defense capabilities, as well as land-attack abilities.

Early in the Trump presidency, two US Navy destroyers devastated Shayrat Airbase with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles to punish the Syrian regime in the aftermath of a chemical-weapons attack.

Bombers: B-52s

In response to the threat of a possible attack on US forces by Iran, the US military decided to send additional firepower to the Middle East.

The B-52 is a subsonic high-altitude bomber capable of carrying nuclear and conventional payloads. These hard-hitting aircraft can carry up to 70,000 pounds of varied ordnance and can be deployed to carry out various missions, including strategic attack, close air support, air interdiction, and offensive counter-air and maritime operations.

Fighters: F-15C Eagles

us-military-f-15-eagles

The F-15s in the region were reportedly seen carrying live missiles, including the six AIM-120 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM) and two AIM-9X Sidewinder’s for air-to-air combat, The Drive reports.

The Pentagon has not specifically announced the movement of these fighters as a response to Iran, but the timing of the repositioning is noteworthy.

Amphibious Landing Ship: USS Arlington

The San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ship USS Arlington (LPD 24) departs her homeport of Naval Station Norfolk.

A San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock is able to move Marines, amphibious assault vehicles, conventional landing craft, and rotary aircraft to support amphibious assaults, special operations, or expeditionary warfare missions, the Pentagon explained in a statement Friday.

Air-and-Missile Defense: Patriot battery

A Patriot battery is, according to the Department of Defense, a long-range, all-weather air defense system with the ability to eliminate certain threatening tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and advanced aircraft. READ MORE

Our brand new NTEB ‘Wall Witness’ Poster Series will get your end times motor running with these sure-fire conversation starters!

When our Mudflower team produced the original ‘days of Noah’ graphic for use in the bookstore as a display background for our ‘Angels & Aliens’ collection from end times author Jeffrey Mardis, people immediately started asking if we could make it available as a poster. Now that was a great idea, and hey, why stop with just one? Presenting the NTEB Wall Witness Poster Series that will remind you and your born again friends of the precious promises of God, and get the lost people in your life thinking about what’s coming to pass shortly.

“For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.” Luke 21:22 (KJB)

We designed three posters that we are selling individually, and as a set with a discount. The first is the classic OG NTEB chaotic end times depiction from our Street Preacher gospel tracts, a design recognized around the world. The second is Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines, our ‘blessed hope’ of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. And the third one is the menacing Days of Noah giant in a boiling sea as UFOs swirl all around. Total visual impact. We are excited to present them to you, and dearly hope you will use them to witness in your home, at work, or wherever you can hang a poster.

Witnesses To The Massive 7.8 Earthquake In Turkey Remarked That ‘It Was Like The Apocalypse’ As Death Toll Now Passes 3,700 Souls And Rising

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

A huge earthquake in Turkey and Syria registering 7.8 on the Richter Scale has already killed 3,700 souls, injuring countless thousands more, was like ‘watching the apocalypse’.

This week is off to a gangbusters start from a prophecy perspective, with a once in a generation earthquake rocking Turkey and Syria, open worship of Satan at the Grammys sponsored by Pfizer, as well as minor earthquakes in New York and Georgia. Russia is preparing to unleash a 500,000 soldier contingent on Ukraine, and Chinese spy balloons fly over America with impunity. Things get much hotter and it might be time for a little ’23 skidoo’, and wouldn’t that be great? In the meantime, here we are at the beginning of sorrows.

“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:6-8 (KJB)

One of the missionaries on our prayer list is LuAnn from Sarasota who ministers to the Muslims in Turkey. She reported this morning that “Yes thank God I’m all right.  I’m living in Istanbul and this horrendous earthquake happened in the southeast of Turkey a few hours away from me. But it is turning into quite a disaster for the nation.  Thank you for your prayers and your concern. We have been told to restock our “earthquake bag” in case we too become affected. We just learned Pastor Hakan and his wife in Anitoch went to be with the Lord , leaving behind a young son. We have so few Turkish Pastors. Tragic” Please continue to pray for LuAnn and her efforts in Turkey, that the Lord would continue to keep her safe and give her and her team much fruit for His Kingdom. And pray for the untold tens of thousands of souls devastated by this earthquake.

Major earthquake kills 3,700 in Turkey and Syria, weather hits survivors

FROM YAHOO NEWS: A huge earthquake killed more than 3,700 people across a swathe of Turkey and northwest Syria on Monday, with freezing winter weather adding to the plight of the thousands left injured or homeless and hampering efforts to find survivors.

The magnitude 7.8 quake brought down whole apartment blocks in Turkish cities and piled more devastation on millions of Syrians displaced by years of war. It struck before sunrise in harsh weather and was followed in the early afternoon by another large quake.

In Diyarbakir in southeast Turkey, a woman speaking next to the wreckage of the seven-storey block where she lived said: “We were shaken like a cradle. There were nine of us at home. Two sons of mine are still in the rubble, I’m waiting for them.” She was nursing a broken arm and had injuries to her face.

“It was like the apocalypse,” said Abdul Salam al-Mahmoud, a Syrian in the northern town of Atareb. “It’s bitterly cold and there’s heavy rain, and people need saving.”

The earthquake was the biggest recorded worldwide by the U.S. Geological Survey since a tremor in the remote South Atlantic in August 2021.

In Turkey, the death toll stood at 2,316, the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said, making it the country’s deadliest earthquake since a tremor of similar magnitude in 1999 devastated the heavily populated eastern Marmara Sea region near Istanbul, killing more than 17,000.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed over 2,300 people in Turkey and Syria early Monday morning. The ‘apocalypse’ quake occurred early in the morning when most people were sleeping or indoors.

The 2023 Grammys Call On Satan During Performance Of ‘Unholy’ Then Immediately Cut To A ‘Brought To You By Pfizer’ Promo, Awake Yet?

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Last night, the 2023 Grammys in 5 minutes showed you graphically how close to the end we truly are. Satan, brought to you by Pfizer. Just like we’ve been telling you.

If you were looking for a theme song wrapped in an iconic moment to truly symbolize what it means to be here on Day 1,057 of 15 Days To Flatten The Curve, the 2023 Grammys last night was just the ticket. You had LGBTQ+ transgenders, Satan, women in cages being beaten with whips, all while singing a song called ‘Unholy’. And if that wasn’t enough, the moment this demonic mess was done, they cut to a ‘brought to you by Pfizer’ promo, tying the two in nice and neatly together. There is nothing more you need to know about the Great Reset, the pandemic, gain of function and all the rest of that junk than that. But don’t take my word for it, watch the video below and see for yourself.

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32 (KJB)

In 5 minutes last night, the Grammys showed you a visual production of just about everything we’ve been warning you about since it all began. How many times have you heard me tell you on the Podcast about the ‘rising spirit of Antichrist’? It rose over the Grammys last night, and broadcast to a hundred million people. How many times have you heard me expose the evils of Pfizer and Big Pharma? Pfizer sponsored that satanic moment. People, if you can’t see where we are on the end times timeline by now, if you can’t see that everything we’ve been warning you about is happening right in front of your face, then I don’t know what to tell you. Obviously we will be discussing this in detail on the Podcast today so please join us. Like we’ve always said NTEB’ers are some of the most well-informed people on the face of the earth regarding the end times, and last night the 2023 Grammys proved that…TO THE FIGHT!!!

2023 Grammys Go ‘Full Satan’ With Performance Of ‘Unholy’

FROM VARIETY: Sam Smith just outdid their recent “Saturday Night Live” performance with “Unholy” collaborator Kim Petras in a horror movie-inspired performance of the smash hit. Smith started the song in red leather, surround a fleet of dancers that evoked Samara from “The Ring,” before cutting to Petras dancing in a cage, flanked by some dominatrices wearing satanic headgear. Smith also donned a satanic top hat, as huge flames heated up the stage.

Smith and Petras won the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance earlier in the evening, and Petras gave an emotional speech.

“Sam graciously wanted me to accept this award because I’m the first transgender woman to win this award,” she said, to cheers and many of the musicians in the crowd giving her a standing ovation. “I just wan to thank all of the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open before me so I could be here tonight. Sophie, my friend who passed away two years ago, who told me this would happen and always believed in me. Thank you so much for you inspiration, Sophie. I adore you, and your inspiration will forever be in my music.”

When asked about the fiery performance backstage, Petras said it was inspired by not feeling accepted by religion.

“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” she said. “So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live, because as a trans person I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that and I was kind of hellkeeper Kim.” READ MORE
