HERE’S A STORY we might not hear on the nightly news — assuming it’s true. According to PressTV and Alalam (both Iranian news sources), 21 US Airborne Division soldiers attempted mass suicide after dinner one evening in Iraq. The details are murky at best — no specific unit information is given, nor are we told the city where this took place. PressTV claims to have gleaned its scant information from a Fars News Agency story, but a quick search at FNA’s website has turned up no related articles. Mind you, I searched the English language version of FNA, so it’s possible the Farsi version would have found the article.
While it’s disturbing enough to read that 21 US soldiers may have tried to commit mass suicide (5 are said to have survived, leaving 16 dead), the description of their condition is even more disturbing:
Security officials said they used potent narcotics to kill themselves. /SNIP/ The suicides took place in the soldiers’ dormitory after the dinner time.
“The bodies of the US troops became misshapen such a way that they looked like 5000-year mummies,” said a witness. [Emphasis SKG]
What? If this had come out on April 1st, it would make more sense. How can a narcotic induce a ‘5000 year old mummy’ appearance? Maybe it’s just me, but something about this story ‘feels’ very wrong. If it’s false, then what do the Iranian sources hope to gain by floating a story that barely makes a blip in the west? If it’s true, then what really happened to those men, and why hasn’t the MSM reported it?
Sorcha Faal is spinning this as the result of the soldiers’ attempt to open a stargate in Babylon. While I take Faal’s opinions with more than a few grains of salt, I can’t get past that ‘mummy’ reference in the original article.
Derek and I chose to call what we do ‘Peering into Darkness’ because the enemy works in dark places. Iraq has long been the scene for many dark works, harking back to the earliest days of spiritual warfare. Because of this, our loved ones are fighting more than just physical enemies in Iraq — therefore we must hold those young men and women up in our prayers daily, asking not just for their physical protection but also for their spiritual protection.
Worse yet, if human powerbrokers are colluding with ancient entities to open portals, then we must entreat the Lord God Almighty to stand against such wickedness. It’s clear from God’s word that a gateway of some kind will be opened (the Abyss), but that it will be opened in God’s timing. Perhaps the enemy seeks to preempt God’s timetable.
Did 16 US soldiers die in a battle they knew little about and a ‘suicide’ story issued to cover up a darker truth? I hope this story is a fake. But if it’s true, then we must discern the implications.
The spiritual war that began in Eden when God declared ‘enmity’ between the seed of the Serpent (Nephilim and ultimately the Beast — AntiChrist) and the seed of Eve (Jesus Christ) is racing toward Armageddon. Our world’s timeline is winding down, dear friends. We have reached the End of the Age. Jesus Christ stands ready to return, and the spirits of Darkness know they have but a tiny window of opportunity to prepare and plunder.
Is your heart ready? Do you know Christ as Savior? Seek Him today, because tomorrow it could be too late.
