JD: Ken, let us get to the activities around this world that we need to have a discussion about. First of all, I don’t know how true this is, I saw it on one of the British newspapers that Russian soldiers are preparing for a nuclear war and it has involved some 40 million of the Russian citizens, what do you know?
KT: Well, the Russians announced this civil defense exercise that took place earlier this month in Moscow, 40 million people were involved. It’s clear that they had soldiers in nuclear protective gear in chemical hazmat gear evacuating people from office buildings, and from apartment buildings, setting up temporary hospitals, triage centers and the rest of it; the type of evacuation that they would, in fact, have to deploy in the event of a massive war or a massive emergency situation.
Why the Russians are doing this is unclear right now, but certainly this does come at a time of these much increased tensions between the United States and Russia. And Russian statements that they would use nuclear weapons, they do have a first strike policy to using nuclear weapon.
JD: Ken Timmerman, from the catbird seat in Washington DC reporting on the Russian preparations for a nuclear war.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Russia will be the leader of a major war in the near future.
The book of Revelation foretells of such a war, that’s Revelation 6:3-4, which would be the second sealed judgment, this war is the Ezekiel 38 war, where Gog in the land of Magog, which is Russia, will be a part of an end time scenario when a group of nations come together in the Middle East to try to wipe out the Jewish state of Israel.
The Bible doesn’t say that this will be a nuclear war, but instead, a major war in the Middle East as this coalition comes together to annihilate the Jewish state. Joining with Gog, the leader of Russia will be a number of other states in the Middle East that are very much so in the news. The major players would be Russia, Ezekiel 38:2, Iran Ezekiel 38:5, and Daniel 11:40 the king of the north is what we know today is Syria, and one of the other nations mentioned, Turkey that’s Ezekiel 38:2&6.
As we look at the Middle East today Syria at Israel’s northern boarder with Russia, Iran, and Turkey inside their country are ready to fulfill the prophecy that’s laid out in these prophetic books and they seem to be ready to fulfill this prophecy at any moment.
