This will fulfill Daniel 8 concerning the He-goat and the Ram.
Ellen White said that all of the events of Daniel's visions by the Ulai
and the Hiddekel will soon come to pass (FUTURE). Soon after Iran
(Persia) is attacked and tromped, the little horn arises. The Lord has
clearly shown me that there was a historic fulfillment and there will be
a future fulfillment of this prophecy.—rwb

AVIV, Israel–The Israel Defense Forces is carrying out drills to practice
for a possible massive aerial assault on Iran's nuclear facilities within
days - or even hours - of being given the go-ahead by its new government,
according to a report today in the Times of London.
wants to know that if its forces were given the green light they could
strike at Iran in a matter of days, even hours. They are making
preparations on every level for this eventuality. The message to Iran is
that the threat is not just words," one unnamed senior defense
official was quoted telling The Times.
British newspaper quoted other unidentified defense sources explaining
any Israeli attack on Iran would entail flying over Jordanian and Iraqi
airspace, where U.S. forces have a strong presence.
drills have included the use of F15 and F16 fighter jets, helicopters and
refueling tankers, practicing bombing raids at long distances, according
to the Times. Those drills took place last year, according to IDF sources
speaking to WND.
Times said defense officials believe Israel could be required to hit more
than a dozen targets, including moving convoys similar to trucks
carrying weapons that were reportedly targeted by Israel in Sudan earlier

of centrifuges produce enriched uranium; Esfahan, where 250 tons of gas
is stored in tunnels; and Arak, where a heavy water reactor produces

There has been a recent move, a number of on-the-ground preparations,
that indicate Israel's willingness to act," another official from
Israel's intelligence community was quoted telling the Times.
official added it was unlikely that Israel would carry out any attack
without receiving at least tacit approval from the Obama administration,
which has been pushing for dialogue with Tehran.
Kam, the deputy director of the Institute for National Security Studies,
commented that it was unlikely the U.S. would approve an attack.
American defense establishment is unsure that the operation will be
successful. And the results of the operation would only delay Iran's
program by two to four years," he said.

Obama policy giving Iran nukes?

said there is a military option but that at this point in time, an
Israeli or U.S. strike against Tehran's nuclear facilities would not
completely halt the country's suspected illicit program.
to the best of my assessment, I'm afraid [using a strike to] completely
disrupt the whole Iranian (nuclear) project and the whole system is not
possible. But there still could be a military option. It depends what are
the aims you define for [any such attack]."

Daniel and the Revelation have attention as never before in the history

may have less to say in some lines, in regard to the Roman
power and the Papacy; but we should call attention to what the
prophets and apostles have written under the inspiration of the Holy
Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit has
so shaped matters, both in the giving of the prophecy and in
the events portrayed, as to teach that the human agent is to be kept
out of sight, hid in Christ, and that the Lord God of heaven and His law
are to be exalted. Read the book

We do not understand the Word as we should. The book of Revelation opens with an
injunction to us to understand the instruction that it contains. "Blessed is he that readeth, and
they that hear the words of this prophecy," God declares, "and
keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at
hand." Revelation 1:3. When
we as a people understand what this book means to us, there will be seen
among us a great revival. We
do not understand fully the lessons that it teaches, notwithstanding the
injunction given us to search and study it. Testimonies to Ministers,
