Russian President Vladimir Putin is calling for an international conference on the Middle East

While meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah in Amman, Jordan, Russian President Vladimir Putin reiterated his proposal for convening an international conference on the Middle East with the participation of all concerned parties including: Syria, Lebanon, and the Palestinians with the aim of finding acceptable solutions for the region's problems.

Putin's Middle East trip included stops in Saudi Arabia and meetings with Saudi King Abdullah, and Jordan where he met with Jordan King Abdullah, and the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to discuss the Russian initiative.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The call for an international conference on the Middle East to work towards a peaceful solution for all parties involved has a familiar ring to it, similar to the End Times scenario that is found in Bible prophecy.

On his recent trip to the Middle East, the Russian President Vladimir Putin called for an international conference on the Middle East that would aim for meeting the security needs of all parties involved and working towards peace in the region. Russia has been working to develop better relations with all of the Middle Eastern countries even including Israel, which is somewhat puzzling since Russia is helping Iran develop its nuclear program which Iran says they will use for the demise of the Jewish state. One of the reasons that President Putin has been welcomed by the Arab leaders is the Russian-Iranian connection and fears that a nuclear powered Iran would cause instability in the Middle East.

The Russian leader's initiative for an international conference on peace in the Middle East sounds like the prophetic scenario that reveals there would be a world leader who will bring about peace between the Muslim-Arab nations and Israel, that's found in Daniel 9:27. The Antichrist will be the individual who brings about this peace; howbeit, a short-lived peace that will end with the Arab-Muslim states attacking Israel, that's Ezekiel 38, Daniel 11, and Psalm 83. Ezekiel 38:2 says that Russia, the Magog of the passage, will lead the attack against Israel.

Vladimir Putin's call for an international Middle East peace conference does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
