Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has declared that the United States' presence in Iraq is Illegal

Saudi Arabia, reportedly a close ally of the United States, has slammed the "illegitimate foreign occupation" of Iraq, as Saudi King Abdullah declared that the United States' presence is an illegal act which should come to an end. The Saudi monarch said that "in beloved Iraq, blood is flowing between brothers, in the shadow of an illegitimate foreign occupation," which has resulted in an ugly sectarian civil war.

In the past, Saudi leaders, including the Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, has often criticized US foreign policy in Iraq, but have never described its presence there as illegitimate.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Saudi King Abdullah declaration that the United States' presence in Iraq is Illegal is a precursor to the prophetic scenario for Iraq in the Last Days.

At the recent Arab League summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the host, King Abdullah for the first time described the US as an illegal foreign occupier and must pull out of Iraq.

The king stated that the Arab leaders cannot allow forces from outside the Middle East to determine the future of the region.

Saudi Arabia's monarch called on Arab leaders to recover the trust of each other so that the winds of hope will blow and war-torn Iraq will recover.

King Abdullah urged Iraq to give Sunni Arabs a greater share of power in the war-ravaged country and prevent its break up. These declarations and demands from King Abdullah are setting the stage for the prophetic scenario for Iraq.

Iraq, which is Biblical Babylon, will come to prominence and power in the Last Days leading up to the Return of Jesus Christ, as foretold by John's prophecy found in Revelation 18. Daniel's description of the Antichrist, the false messiah, becoming the world leader, (Daniel 9:27, 11:36-45), places the Antichrist as the leader of the one world economic political government headquartered in Babylon.

Saudi King Abdullah's call for the winds of hope to blow over Iraq, does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
