SPECIAL PROPHECY UPDATE NUMBER 141C

Conventional to Nuclear – Israel Shifting Military Focus


I have known for 35 years that Israel possessed nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare capabilities.  In Prophecy Updates 4 and 17A, issued in early 2001, I shared the history of their nuclear development program.  In the later years of the last century, Israel received three Dolphin class diesel submarines form Germany.  They are the best diesel subs in the world, able to stay at sea for more than four weeks with a range of some 2800 miles.  In the late nineties I included a transparency of the first sub Israel received in my lecture series, and pointed out a section of the sub where a modification of the craft could be made such that a cruise class missile could be launched from beneath the surface of the sea.  I told the audiences where I lectured during this period that I was certain it would soon carry a nuclear warhead.  The submarines were first designed to carry the U.S. made Harpoon missiles, but I told listeners it was a sure thing that Israel would modify the existing launch mechanisms to send missiles carrying nuclear warheads.  I also told them the three subs to patrol three areas, the Persian Gulf, the Red Sea, and the eastern parts of the Mediterranean Sea.  Israel made sure that public announcements of their acquisition of their German war machines reached all the Islamic nations, particularly Iran.

Recent news sources are now quoting senior U.S. and Israeli military officials as saying that Israel has done exactly this, modified American cruise missiles to launch from beneath the sea.  Israel now has the ability to launch many atomic weapons from three sources: Jericho based land missiles, aircraft, or Dolphins under Persian Gulf waters. 

Please read Special Prophecy Update Number 129C in our Prophecy Archives, titled “Atomic War in Israel – Yes or No?,” before continuing.  My major purpose in writing this update is not to show the buildup or might of Israel in its WMD arsenal, and Update 129C will advise you why this is the case.  I am writing this to advise you that recent things stated by prominent Israeli war hawks, are making it plain that Israeli officials have no fear of a convention war, but are developing a fear of a WMD conflict.  They are convinced they could militarily defeat all the Islamic nations in a conventional war.  And this, along with their daily anticipation of a completed security fence giving them an internal peace scenario they could control, added to their belief they could defeat the Arab nations handily in a conventional war, is causing them to be drawn into a false peace sense of security.  When they believe they have gained sufficient control of their internal conflict with the Palestinians, they will begin to say: Now!  At Last!  We have generated our own “peace and safety!”  The WMD’s, which they are starting to shift their resources to counter, will not be launched against them, but a Pearl Harbor type of lightning conventional jihad will, and Israeli will again discover to trust in the power of their Messiah, rather than their own expertise.  A forced false peace, followed by a vicious surprise blitzkrieg from the North, will drive Israel into the Negev, and I believe it is likely to occur before 2008.

I Thessalonians 5:3,4 – For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. [4] But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 

Zechariah 13:8 – And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 

Revelation 12:6 – And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

The United Nation’s International Atomic Energy Agency has given Iran an October 31st deadline to accept full inspections and prove it does not have a nuclear arms program.  If, after that, they continue to appear to be continuing on their quest for an atomic bomb, which they can mount as a warhead on their Shahab-3 missile, then I look for Israel, possibly before year’s end, to hit their atomic facilities with an air strike.
