The Israeli Prime Minister held meetings with Russian leaders to discuss major issues

The first official visit to Russia by Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu has the Israeli leader in Russia to discuss several major issues and on the top of the list the Iranian nuclear threat to the Jewish state. Russia has been more involved in the Middle East in recent days becoming once again the arms supplier to the Arab and Islamic world which included the transfer of nuclear technology and technicians to these Middle Eastern nations.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

An Israel Prime Minister meeting with Russian leaders to solicit help against Arab and Moslem enemies to the Jewish state is contradictory to the prophetic scenario for the end times that can be found in Bible prophecy.

For a number of years Russia has been involved in the transfer of nuclear technology and technicians to Iran in development of Iran's nuclear program that is on track to have a nuclear weapon of mass destruction sometime this year. At the same time, since the rise to power of Vladimir Putin in Russia, the Russians have increased their supply of military weapons in addition to the nuclear technology to additional Middle Eastern nations. Israel's big concern is is the delivery of the S-300 ground to air anti-aircraft missiles that Russia has sold to Iran. These missiles would most likely put a stop to any preemptive strike Israel might make against Iran's nuclear program.

This entire scenario is the scenario that is found in Bible prophecy for the last days. Ezekiel 38:2 mentions Magog as the leader of the coalition of Middle Eastern and Islamic states that will attack Israel in the beginning of the seven year Tribulation period. Magog is modern-day Russia. I say the beginning of the seven years of judgment because Ezekiel 38:8-11 indicate that this attack will take place during a time of peace in the Middle East, a major thrust of world leaders including Russia who would like to bring peace to the Middle East. The Ezekiel passage includes Iran as one of the coalition states to join Russia in the attack on Israel plus there are additional Arab and Moslem states that are mentioned.

An Israeli prime minister in Moscow to seek help for their prophetic enemies is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
