“Will Israel Attack Iran?”
by Art Sadlier   
November 6th, 2011

An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report published on Tuesday asserted that Iran is indeed trying to build nuclear weapons. It seems that the US and EU have realized that economic sanctions cannot stop Iran. It also seems that they are resigned to an Iran that has nuclear weapons.

Israel is now finally realizing that if they are going to stop Iran from obtaining the nuclear bomb they must do it alone. There seems to be a realization that whatever price Israel must pay in Iranian counter attacks, it will be far less than waiting to be vaporized by an Iranian nuke.

There are several factors pressuring Israel to attack Iran now. The first is winter weather; the cloudy skies of winter would make the task almost impossible. The second factor is the nearness of Iran’s successful obtaining of nukes. It seems that Israel no longer has the option of delaying the decision, it is now or never.

From a prophetic perspective it appears to me that some how Iran will be prevented from being involved in the coming war of Psalm 83. The question seems to be, will it be Israel or the US? One scenario has the US attacking Iran and Israel in standby mode to defend against attack by Iran’s proxies; Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas.

The combatants of the war of Psalm 83 are named in the Psalm, and Iran is not mentioned. Iran is named in the later war of Ezekiel 38-39.

We cannot know exactly how these events will unfold but we have some guidelines such as the above to go on. We will have to wait and see, providing the rapture does not come first.

We cannot know the day nor the hour but we do know that the time is near at hand. It seems to me that once this scenario begins to unfold the whole end time program will play out rapidly.
