Iran is taking the money they are getting from a massive jump in oil revenues, and spending it on — say it with me, everybody! — ‘State sponsored terrorism’.
Iran faced heavy sanctions on their energy sector during the Trump years. But once Biden took office and rolled back US energy independence and dropped sanctions on Iran (for various reasons), Iran had revenue again.
With the launch of a war in Afghanistan, oil prices began to soar, and Iran was laughing all the way to the bank. What do they do with that money?
Obviously, they don’t use it to help ease the suffering of their own people. Instead of spending that money on projects to provide a reliable water supply for their desperate people (as other nearby nations have with desalination plants), they have spent the money on arming militia groups to conduct endless war on their neighbors.
In recent days, that has included a drone strike on Americans in Syria that killed one US contractor and injured 5 troops and a second contractor. Biden answered back with a retaliatory strike. Here’s footage of how the news up to that point has been reported …
Iran’s proxy group has now responded to our retaliation by firing rockets at the US base in Syria. In this instance, early reports indicate that nobody was hurt.

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in a statement that the American intelligence community had determined the drone was of Iranian origin, but offered no other immediate evidence to support the claim. The drone hit a coalition base in the northeast Syrian city of Hasaka. The wounded included five American service members and a U.S. contractor. — FoxNews
In an interview with ‘Morning Joe’ today, when asked about what price Iran would pay for supplying drones that are killing Americans, John Kirby said ‘Well, a couple of things. First of all, they paid a price last night with those retaliatory strikes that the President ordered and they’ll continue to pay that kind of cost.”
He went on to say something about staying vigilant about destabilizing…
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
