Russia is seeking closer ties with Saudi Arabia and the Islamic world

Russian President Vladimir Putin, on his first-ever trip to Saudi Arabia, has offered to help the Saudis develop atomic energy and President Putin said that Russia is determined to enhance cooperation with the Islamic world.

Saudi King Abdullah called Putin a statesman, a man of peace, and a man of justice as the two leaders met to discuss military and energy ties between the two countries even as the Russian president has been criticizing the US' Middle Eastern policy.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Russian president's recent Middle Eastern tour that criticized US' Middle Eastern policy and discussed developing nuclear capabilities with Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries is a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy for this region and these nations.

Vladimir Putin has had to deal with a Muslim problem as it relates to the Russian Chechnya conflict and in order to enhance Russia's Islamic ties the Russian President made a trip to the Middle East recently to mend some fences. Putin remarked to the Saudi officials that Russia is indeed determined to enhance cooperation with the Islamic world. Of interest to Western world leaders, should be the talks that Mr. Putin had with Saudi King Abdullah referring to the nuclear, military, and energy needs in the Middle East among the Arab countries. This especially in light of the fact that Russia has supplied all the nuclear technology and technicians to develop Iran's nuclear program. This report is indeed a precursor to the Bible prophecy scenario that one day will surface in the Middle East.

Saudi Arabia is listed in the Alignment of Nations that will attack Israel in the Last Days to destroy the Jewish state. They are referred to in Psalm 38:6 as the Ishmaelites. Russia, the Magog of Ezekiel 38:2, is the leader of this coalition of nations that form in the Last Days. Iran is also mentioned in that coalition, they are the Persia of Ezekiel 38:5.

Bible prophecy is ready for the final drama and President Putin's trip to Saudi Arabia and the other Middle Eastern countries is indeed a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
