BREAKING: Attack on Kenyan Base Housing American Soldiers

Breaking news out of Manda Bay, Kenya.  The Islamic terrorist group al Shabaab has carried out a raid on a Kenyan naval base that houses a large contingent of American soldiers.  Details are scarce, with some reports suggesting mass casualties.  Please pray for the lives and safety of the soldiers at "Camp Simba" naval base.

UPDATE: Fighting apparently lasted for hours, and details are still unclear, but from what we know, Kenyan and U.S. forces repelled the attack, killing a number of al Shabaab fighters, but before they were killed they managed to destroy military equipment and damage infrastructure.  Officials are still mum on casualties.  Another update on Iran is at the bottom of the article.




Coming so quickly after the assassination of Soleimani, it would be hard not to associate this attack with Iran's threats of reprisal.  Al Shabaab is not publicly linked with Iran, but it is widely known in the intelligence community that Iran and al Qaeda offshoots like al Shabaab are covertly cooperating.

Before this attack was carried out, President Trump threatened to retaliate against Iran for any further attacks:





Separately, intelligence analysts in the United States are seeing signs that Iran is prepping for a more significant attack within "days" or, at maximum, "weeks."  With the Ayatollah's pride hurt, it may be difficult for him to restrain himself:

A dire vision has been shown to me: The traitor betrays, the looter takes loot.  Elam [Iran], attack! Media [Iran], lay siege! I will bring to an end all the groaning she caused.
–Isaiah 21:2


News sources are reporting that the "red flag" has been raised over Iran's most religiously-significant city of Qom, in a concerning development.  The red flag represents martyrdom and vengeance in Islam, and the gesture is a major symbolic warning to the U.S. and U.S. allies that war is imminent.  This would be something akin to the U.S. going to DEFCON 2 or 3.  IRGC helicopters were seen hovering over the flag-raising, leaving no question about official endorsement.

  2. Other reports coming out sound more positive saying the attack was repulsed. Trust that is the case. Dangerous times.

    1. Obadiah 1:3-4
      (3) The pride of your heart has deceived you,
      You who dwell in the clefts of the rock,
      Whose habitation is high;
      You who say in your heart, "Who will bring me down to the ground?"
      (4) Though you ascend as high as the eagle,
      And though you set your nest among the stars,
      From there I will bring you down," says the LORD.

      Pride comes before a fall as the saying goes.
      They don't know God.
      They haven't read His book.
      If they had, they'd know God wins!
      His plans, His purposes - not ours.

    2. This particular prophecy makes me wonder if it's referencing the United States...

    1. I know that Trump doesnt want war, we came very close last summer when he called off an attack after the downed drone incident and the attack on the oil field, but enough is enough.
      The only thing is we need to be careful going after any cultural targets. The democrats would love to accuse the President of committing war crimes. The best friends the mullahs have are american liberal democrats and they know it.

  8. At https://eschatologytoday.blogspot.com/2020/01/global-sitrep-a1-20-iran-part-ii.html "Global SITREP A1-20: IRAN Part II":

    "UPDATE 5 January 2020: It's about 9:30 PM in Israel, 10:30 in Baghdad and Tehran. Iranian proxies just announced they will commence retaliation tonight.

    If Iran attacks the US directly, the NATO common defense charter will be invoked. The UK has its nuclear-powered subs in the region and prepared to launch Tomahawk cruise missiles into Iran. Here, my brothers and sister, is the "coalition of nations" often referred to here regarding Jeremiah 40:34-39. Cruise missiles can be programmed to fly to their targets from every direction on the compass (confuses defenders)."

    Will the hell literally break loose this week in the Middle-East and World War Three actually start?

    Very bizarre that all this is happening right after celebrating the NATO's 70th birthday last December and 40 years after the Iran hostage crisis which started in 1979 and has lasted for 444 days. The numbers 70 and 40 are significant prophetic numbers.

    1. We always knew the day would come, and if this is the day, so be it! It's in the Lord's hand, not ours. His time-table, not ours. I'm pleased either way. I know HE is in control. If I harbor any regrets, it's that there is much I want to accomplish for Him. Much.

    2. The number '52' was a standout to me from the news. 52 is the number of weeks in a Gregorian year but also the number of days it took to build the wall in Jeremiah's day.

    3. Also the number of cards in a standard deck of playing cards... Made me remember they had a deck of playing cards with a bunch of terrorists on it years ago... Was it in Bush's days after 9/11? Wasn't this general one of them along with Laden?

  9. And now an $80 million bounty for the assassination of Trump? Ugh, well, if this continues to escalate, I hope it ends up fulfilling an end times prophetic sign rather than another pointless war.

  10. SPOT ON GARY!

    If I may expand on (Isaiah 21),

    1 The oracle concerning the wilderness
    of the sea. As whirlwinds in the Negeb
    sweep on, it comes from the wilderness,
    from a terrible land.

    2 A stern vision is told to me;
    the traitor betrays, and the
    destroyer destroys. Go up,
    O Elam; lay siege, O Media;
    all the sighing she has caused
    I bring to an end.

    3 Therefore my loins are filled
    with anguish; pangs have seized
    me, like the pangs of a woman
    in labor; I am bowed down so
    that I cannot hear; I am
    dismayed so that I cannot see.

    (Isaiah 21:1-3 ESV)

  11. Genesis 1:14

    Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;

    The RING OF FIRE Eclipse, the one we saw last December 26, 2019. Barely a week, we saw the escalation of Iran vs US. While I see the Australia fire, I also see a demonstration of what could be described in what the tribulation can be (and even worse)

    Yes, let us remember that celestial bodies are Godly Governed. It has significance to what the LORD is doing based on his TIME and SCHEDULE.

    Are we near? I do not know. But LORD, let us, the CHURCH be reminded that the moment we accepted CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOUR. We forfeit our earthly citizenship, and we gain our HEAVENLY CITIZENSHIP. We are AMBASSADORS and CITIZEN for HEAVENLY PURPOSE.

    Therefore, our Departure on Earth can be very, very near.

    The woman is in labor and will soon give birth, there is no stopping. Simultaneously, The flight announcement is ongoing and becoming louder each passing day.

    MARANATHA.

    1. Lord Jesus,

      Just as Moses stretched forth the staff in his hand and parted the sea, stretch forth Your mighty hand and draw us heavenward and Home to You.

      You said it very well Ryan, "We forfeit our earthly citizenship, and we gain our HEAVENLY CITIZENSHIP." Dual citizenship? I think not.

      Keep looking up!

  12. Its funny to me that Obama didnt end the Afghanistan war after 8 yrs. and also pulled us out of Iraq prematurely and allowing Isis to rise up.
    Lets go back to the 90's with another dumb democrat blunder. N. Korea has nukes today largely due to Bill Clinton and Madeline Halfbright. They gave kim jong ill 5 billion dollars not to build nukes. How dumb is that?
    And recently Obama and that brilliant tactician John Kerry give the mullahs billions of dollars not to build nukes.
    Instead of learning thier lesson with N. Korea, they do it again!

  15. Amir Tsarfati had a good update. He said the 4 Hellfire missiles didn’t leave much left to bury. He said you could put it in a backpack and still have room. When God’s Judgment comes down, it likes a million hammers or more. Obama had members of the militias who attacked our Embassy in the WH as his guests. Soleimani thrived for the 8 yrs Obama was Pres

  16. Right on, the left with thier twisted logic thinks that Israel is the threat and the 'occupior' of 'Palestine'. The left in this country hate Israel and will no doubt be the anti-christs biggest fans when he comes on to the world stage. The democrats actually want Iran to have nuclear weapons.

  17. Yes, he dems are telling Iran they will get President Trump out and then restore the deal Obama gave them. JD Farag thinks the Rapture will gut the USA and whoever is left in power will follow the AC.

  18. I'm wondering if trump will be assassinated and that will embolden Iran to come against Israel and that would be why the US doesnt come to Israel's aid...just thinking out loud...80 million bounty๐Ÿค”

    1. What we have to hope is that no one around Trump is tempted by 30 pieces of silver...

    2. Iran doesn’t have 80 billion. President Trump has decimated their economy. They have oil wells but no refineries. God has thwarted every attack against President Trump and made them backfire on the liars. I trust God to protect President Trump always.

  19. I think Farag is correct, the U.S. still has the largest concentration of Christians in the world. Im sincerely hoping that Trump became a Christian and will be taken up and out by the Lord with the rest of us.
