[Today's Prayer] Sharp war of words between Israel-Iran...Iran warns ‘Israel embassies’

The war of words between two countries is becoming more intense day by day after the bombing of the Iranian consulate in Syria.

While Iran blamed Israel as the force behind the bombing and repeatedly warned of strong revenge, Israel did not back down, saying it has completed its preparations to react to any possible situations.

April 7(local time)-Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant stated “Israel has completed preparations to respond to any scenario that may unfold with Iran” after he held an operational situation assessment with senior military officers.


According to Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency, the top military advisor of Iran Supreme Leader Yahya Rahim Safavi, warned that “Israeli embassies are no longer safe” and that “confronting this brutal regime is a legal and legitimate.”

Iran appears to have pointed to Israeli diplomatic missions as a target of retaliation, as its diplomatic missions were attacked in accordance with the Qisas principle of Islamic law (an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth).

Iranian commander General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri said on the 7th, “Iran will carry out a retaliatory operation with precision that the Zionist entity regret its action,” describing, “the strike on Iran’s Damascus mission as a suicide committed by lsrael”

A semi-official ISNA news agency released an infographic outlining nine missiles from Iran’s arsenal capable of reaching Israel.

In the meantime, the New York Times (NYT) quoted anonymous Iranian Officials and reported, “Iran had placed all its armed forces on full high alert and a decision had been made that Iran must respond directly to the Damascus attack to create deterrence.”

The Israeli military also suspended vacations for combat troops and mobilized additional reserve forces for air defense operation.

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied whether it carried out this bombing campaign.

For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10)

The war of words between two countries is getting fiercer day by day after the bombing of the Iranian consulate in Syria. While Iran has warned of strong retaliation several times, Israel is not backing down, saying it is prepared to respond.

God, would you save Israel and Iran. May war be prevented. We know that God has not destined Israel and Iran for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus died to save them, and those who believes in Jesus will live with him forever. In this time Israel, which is hated and beleaguered by many nations, is being the fullness of the Gentiles, may Israel meet Jesus, who gave life for themselves.

Let Iran, experiencing revival by risking their life to testify of Jesus even in the midst of severe persecution, to be established as a nation that throws off the long-standing yoke of idolatry and testifies to the gospel all the way to Jerusalem.

As the day of the Lord’s coming is near, let Israel and Iran build together as a people of eternal heaven.
