I hate to say what I’m about to say, but based on what is happening in this country with our media situation, perhaps for us the very worst Iranian act of retaliation against those of us in this country would be to take action against the few in number who are conservative media news personalities who still seem to believe in God and His blessings on our country.
President Trump often names these who support him and his Administration’s agenda, against the actions of those in congress and the media, who are out to take him down, because He also believes in God. Some time ago:
“Former CIA operations officer, Sam Faddis, warned that Hezbollah sleeper cells were hiding in the U.S. and potentially had targets in its sights.
‘It is more than possible that Hezbollah has sleeper cells in the United States ready to strike,’ Faddis told DailyMail.com.
‘Based on what we know we must assume they do and that they can hit targets on U.S. soil at anytime without warning.’”
If the Iranian’s, who control Hezbollah, want to take revenge against Trump, which would seriously injure this country; then the loss of Trump’s only media supporters would be his greatest loss, and ours as Christians. Without them the Democrats would own the media, and virtually the country. Socialism would come to The US almost overnight.
But what does God intend to allow for this country. Time will tell, but if retaliation does come from Iran, and if it is on American soil it most likely will be a black mark on Trumps policies, since his adversaries are already all over him for taking down the most beloved General of Irans elite troops. Forget that he was and they are a terrorist regime, who actively support terrorism outside their own country.
One thing is certain. Iran occupies the land called Persia in the Bible and as such she will play a major role in the prophetic end time future of the world. Many believe that the US is not even mentioned in Scripture during that coming time. Others believe, including myself, that we are seen as the Eagles wings in Daniel 7 and Revelation 12. In the Revelation passage these wings are protecting the Jews and her Nation. Perhaps this is why Iran and other Arab terrorists call us the Great Satan. Our protection of Israel has been more than obvious.
There is one other certainty. Iran is a hard hearted doomed instrument in the hand of God, for He has said concerning the seed of Abraham: “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.” This was His promise to any and all who interact with Israel, and her seed.
Iran’s fate is already sealed.
I don’t know why you have to perpetuate stereotypes all the time. Always acting like like the big mouthed minorities on both sides are the majority.
That being said, we will have to wait and see what comes out of this. Perhaps the effect won’t be felt for decades. What we do know, sanctions and now the murder of this General did nothing to halt their nuclear ambitions. As I’ve stated before, I keep waiting for something of value to materialize from this presidency, but so far, just a lot of hot air.
Truth be told, no matter what happens, I still need to provide for my family. I still have 30 years to go in the workforce so matter who’s in office, I’ll be working by the Grace of Jesus Christ.
Freedom 75 here I come.
I don’t think there will be any short term ramifications to this murder, but it will stoke the fires of hatred.
May God bless us all

Stephen, I know that the majority is not with God Today. So that makes us — in Christ — the minority. And obviously we don’t even agree on what are the problems of our day, so there really are no stereotypical minorities. The only thing that binds people together from a Scriptural or God perspective is belief or unbelief in Him. My world view is pretty simple. It takes His Spirit in us to lead us into truth, and absent that we are nothing without Him.
I was talking more about the democratic minority that you seem to think is all democrats .
Gods’ spirit will allow any one of us to disillusioned should our heart choose so.
There is simplicity IN Christ but that simplicity doesn’t enter into civilization.
Jesus says love your enemies and bless them, your presidents say hate your enemies and murder them.
You can’t reconcile the two Brother.
The world is a complicated place.

Man you are right about that, and by agreeing with that it would seem that I’m contradicting myself, but I’m not. God puts leaders in place to do many things, and therein comes the complication at least in the leadership area. But one of those purposes is to protect us that we might live in peace. Thus David often went to war with his enemies. You and I are to pray both for our leaders and our enemies. I love how God is revealing Himself to Muslims today. But He also will bring down those who oppose Abraham’s seed. You and I are of that seed if we are in Christ, as are the Muslims who are coming to Him. Trump is there for many reasons, but one of those reasons is to protect us, at least for now. There will come a day when America will also fall to her enemies as did Israel of old, because of her rejection of Gods offered gift of righteousness in Him. We may be nearer to that day than we think. I pray for you generation Steven, because I have Grandchildren who are about your age. In fact one of them is Steven, spelled differently, but I think you and he will see similar things in life’s journey.
Thank you Jerry for the prayers and concerns.
