Russia marks its first anniversary of military involvement in Syria

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Well this marks the first anniversary of Russia really getting involved with Bashar Assad in Syria and assisting to hold up Bashar Assad,  joining him with military forces and armament as well. Aircraft and ships that they are using at their port there on the Mediterranean coast in Syria, and their air bases, I believe they have two of them now.

 But Russia, boy they are striking back at the United States. They’re saying this situation in Aleppo is the fault of the United States. They’re trying to strong arm the United States on this first anniversary of Russian involvement in Syria, are they not?

KT: Well that’s right, and they’re actually succeeding quite well. Our response to say, well we’re going to suspend talks with Russia about a cease fire. And the Russians are brazenly going ahead and doing whatever they have decided to do with no regard whatsoever for either US opinion or US retaliation.

JD: Well this does not mark a high point as far as Middle Eastern policy is concerned with this present administration and possibly it would continue on, similar to what it is today, right?

KT: There are really two futures for the United States. One, is an America which is strong again, which is assertive ,which is respected and which can work with its partners and allies on the ground for very specific objectives, and accomplish them. And another is an America which continues to jawbone everybody. No action whatsoever, where even the Russians disrespect us. And I think that’s really part of the choice people have in November.

JD: Ken Timmerman reporting the political activities that are taking place in Syria setting the stage, by the Russians being in that state in the Middle East, for the prophetic scenario that’s found in Gods word.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Russian involvement in Syria; militarily, is a precursor to the fulfillment to Bible prophecy.

The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel pre-wrote history. Bible prophecy some 25,000 years ago laid out a scenario for the end-times. Ezekiel 38 talked about the battle of Gog and Magog. Russia is Magog in Ezekiel 38:2 and they will lead this coalition of Islamic nations to try and destroy the Jewish state of Israel. They will also be joined by Syria, Daniel 11:40; and Iran, Ezekiel 38:5; that stage is set today. These Bible prophecy will be fulfilled and seemingly in the very near future.
