Russia is a steadfast supporter of Syria as Western powers including the US and its allies discuss and prepare for an attack on Syria. Russia in fact is doubling down. Russia has moved naval ships into the Mediterranean as Vladimir Putin warns Western powers not to attack Syria.
In fact one report says that the Russian leader has warned if the West does indeed attack Syria, Russia will attack Saudi Arabia. The world is now standing by to see if the Middle East will explode should the Western powers attack Syria.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Russia's support for Syria in the crisis in the Middle East is at this time in history setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
As Western powers discuss and prepare to punish Bashar Assad's government for the use of chemical weapons of mass destruction, Russia is steadfast in its defense of Assad on the issue of chemical weapons of mass destruction usage in Syria. This standoff between Russia and the West may well become a major conflict in the Middle East.
What the world sees unfolding today is a page out of Bible prophecy. The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel wrote in chapter 38 and verse 2 about Russia referred to as Magog in the passage, that Russia will lead the last days conflict in the Middle East with an attack on Israel as the end result. Daniel another ancient Jewish prophet, said in chapter 11 and verse 40 that Syria, referred to as the King of the North, will be aligned with Russia in this move against Israel.
Syria in fact has threatened to burn Israel if the West does attack its homeland and Russia stands ready to join forces with Syria in this explosive conflict. According to the prophetic scenario found in God's Word the ancient Jewish prophets indeed talk about an alignment of nations that will come against the Jewish state and Syria will make the first move to destroy the Jewish state of Israel.
These developments in the Middle East are indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
