The Kurds in Iraq and Syria are the fiercest fighters in the Middle East and they have a connection to Biblical prophecy

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Ken, I wanted to check in on the battle going on in Mosul, which is Biblical Nineveh of course there in Northern Iraq. Iraqi army chief is making a statement that this battle is going to be finished within a couple of days. Do you think that’s a possibility?

KT: We’ll certainly know that when we know it wont we? The Iraqi’s have been making sunny predictions about finishing up in Mosul for some time.

JD: There’s a report the United States military is moving quickly to arm the Syrian Kurds despite the Turkish opposition. The Kurds are the major fighters for the United States the boots on the ground in the Middle East and in particular even in Mosul. What is going on here?

KT: Well, this is a very significant development. You have Erdogan who is coming to the United States next week to meet with President Trump. I believe he’s going to threaten United States President. I call it the Turkey trap. And he’s been extremely belligerent about US efforts to arm the Kurds who he claims are terrorist, they’re not. The Kurd’s are a much more reliable ally than Turkey under Erdogan has turned out to be. So, Erdogan is very upset about this and the fact that the US military is working hand and glove militarily giving intelligence to the Kurd’s inside Syria something he’s really upset about he’s going to demand that Trump put an end to it; the President will not.

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details behind the lead story today.

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

As Ken reveled to us the Kurd’s are the major fighters in the Middle East. The battle in Mosul which is Biblical Nineveh that battle is to wipe out Islamic state and it is being lead by the Kurd’s. They have a vested interest in Mosul. Mosul is their capital city for their desired state of Kurdistan and it is a very oil rich region.

Mosul or as I said Biblical Nineveh is some 250 miles north of Biblical Babylon. Babylon will be the headquarters for the antichrist during the last three and a half years of the seven-year tribulation period that is coming. The antichrist will set up a one world economic, political, governmental operation in Babylon, that’s Revelation chapter 18. And this Babylon will be destroyed in one hour, that’s Revelation 18:10, 17, 19. Revelation 16:17 and following tells us how Jesus does that just prior to his return to earth.

By the way, Jeremiah 51:11 tells us the Lord will use the Medes the modern day Kurds to destroy Babylon.
