JD: Hey Ken, talk to me about Vladimir Putin looks like he’s moving to try and win a military base in Libya, which will be his first military base in the continent of Africa.
KT: Yeah, it’s a pretty extraordinary development. We have pulled out of the Middle East; we’ve allowed Russia to fill that vacuum and this particular individual, General Haftar who was born in the United States; he’s now the commander of the Libyan army in Western Libya along the border with Egypt in Benghazi. General Haftar is a natural ally with the United States and yet he recently went to Moscow, actually his second trip to negotiate support from Russia because the United States is not helping him.
JD: Well, what about Iran? They are seeking a naval base in an operation either in Yemen or in Syria; either one would not be good.
KT: Right well they’re already operating in both places. What the Iranians are now talking about is setting up a permanent military base. This is something they have never done under the Islamic republic, the Shaw never did it either, and it would be. So it would be a first.
JD: You know when we talk about Iran and Russia in the next breath we need to mention Syria. And a very interesting statement came from an official in the Israeli air force, he said that Syria is the global stage and everybody is playing there, your thoughts?
KT: Well Syria has become this generations proxy wars. That’s what’s happening today in Syria. You have the Russians backing the Syrian government; you have the Iranians backing the Syrian government. And the United States we’re just getting rings run around us by the Syrians, the Russians, and the Iranians. So it’s a no win situation right now for us in Syria.
JD: Ken Timmerman with the latest in the military activities of Russia, Iran, and Syria.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Syria is the global stage and the last act is about to be played out there in Syria.
The ancient Jewish prophets Daniel and Ezekiel foretold of a Middle East conflict that would feature Russia, Iran, and Syria. Ezekiel 38 mentions Russia, verse 2; referred to as Magog, and also it mentions Iran, verse 5; referred to as Persia. These nations will be a part of an alignment of nations that will form to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth.
This battle starts in Syria that’s Daniel 11:40 where Syria is known as the king of the north. Syria is indeed the global stage and the last act is about to begin. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
