Russian President Putin: World cannot solve nuclear security problems without Russia

The Russian president asked if anyone could imagine solving nuclear security problems without the involvement of Russia, a key nuclear power.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As the world watches the Kremlin, under Russian President Vladimir Putin, take tight control of his nation, a scenario is unfolding that seems to match the Last Days scenario recorded in Bible prophecy. More and more world leaders and political pundents have been voicing concern about the aggressiveness of Vladimir Putin to to take control of the government of Russia and the people of his nation.

Putin's greatest political achievement of 2005 was bringing Chechnya back into the fold after more than a decade of conflict. Nevertheless, human rights watchers say that abuse including abductions by government forces as well as rebels are rampid in Chechnya. Vladimir Putin proudly proclaims that Russia's position on the Middle East differs from that of the US and the EU. Putin says that Russia has never declared Hamas a terrorist organization, but quickly added that Russia does not support and accept everything that Hamas has done.

As is the case with the news stories that we cover on this broadcast, this story is a definite match for the scenario laid out for the End Times and found in Bible prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophet, Ezekiel wrote of a place called Magog, Ezekiel 38:2. Magog, the leader of a coalition of nations that can only be described as the nations of the Middle East today. This alignment between the nations will come against Israel to endeavor to eliminate the Jewish state in the Last Days. Magog of Ezekiel 38:2 is the modern-day nation of Russia, the leader of the alignment of nations talked about in Ezekiel 38.

Vladimir Putin's powerful presidency in Russia is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
