The civil war in Syria continues and is intensifying and the Iranians are now becoming the major player in this conflict. Ken Timmerman in Washington, DC has a report on how this is all developing in the Middle East.
Ken Timmerman: I think this is an extraordinary event. We are seeing now that the Iranians are all in when it comes to the Syrian conflict. They have decided that this is a red line for them and for their regime. They are now openly talking about that deployment of Revolutionary Guard troops whereas until now they have been just there quietly in the background backing Hezbollah and I would say this is going to get dicier.
You already have Saudi Arabia arming the rebels, you have Turkey arming the rebels, you have Jordan training and arming the rebels in Syria and this has been going on for quite some time with the explicit knowledge and encouragement of the Obama administration and the CIA. This is increasingly an international conflict. The Iranians by the way, and these are high level government officials, who said this week in their media they believe the Sunni-Shia conflict in Syria today will hasten the return of the twelfth Imam, the Imam Mahdi, the end of the world scenario for the Shias.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Iran's involvement in the war torn nation of Syria is a precursor to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
Events in the Middle East continue to bring our world to the point of a major war focused in the Middle East. That is political information as we have already discussed in this program how the Iranians are going to deploy four thousand of their military personnel into this civil war that is only intensifying in the nation of Syria, however that scenario was foretold 2500 years ago in the books of Ezekiel and Daniel.
In Ezekiel 38:5, it mentions Persia, Persia would be modern day Iran where in fact they do still speak the Persian language. When you go to Daniel 11:40 you will notice there is mention of a King of the North. Early on in the book of Daniel, we find out in verse 5 that the King of the North would be the geographical location for modern day Syria. Put these two bits of information together and you have the end of times scenario that is called for in Bible prophecy.
Indeed the stage is set for bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
