Iran has fired missiles at Islamic State, but then they said that they could fire those missiles at the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: What do you know about the tensions that have been ratcheted up there in Syria as it relates to Iran?

KT: Well the Iranian’s for the first time in something like 15 years have fired off a long-range missile in a wartime situation. 15 years ago they hit an Iranian opposition base in Iraq, this time they fired off 8 missiles against an ISIS base in Syria. Now, when they fired the missiles they warned the United States, they warned Israel and Saudi Arabia. They did not actually fire against any of the other countries but they warned them saying basically, look we have these long range missiles today we’re striking at Syria but tomorrow we can just as easily point them towards you. So in a sense if you wish Jimmy they were demonstrating a capability to attack any of the countries in the region including Israel and including American bases.

JD: Well what about the tensions ratcheted up there in Syria with Russia and Iran warning the United States? Now they say if the United States comes into the airspace over Syria they’re going to shoot them down; boy the tensions are really getting high there in Syria.

KT: A US Navy F-18 downed the Syrian plane; shoot down the Syrian plane. That is indeed a very hostel action and the US will be I’m sure very interested to see the frequencies that the Russians are using on their air defense radar to track them because that’s going to give American pilots a key if they need to go after those Russian radar.

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details on the rising tensions in the state of Syria.

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

Tensions are on the rise in Syria. Remember the players who are in Syria its Russia, the rebel opposition Arab groups, Hezbollah, Islamic State, al-Qaeda, the Syrian military forces, and the United States. This dukes mixture could explode into a full fledge war at any time. In fact, Russia and Iran have warned the United States not to enter the Syrian airspace. Tensions are very high at this time. The actors on the Syrian stage were foretold by the ancient Jewish prophets. The Saudi’s which would be the Ishmaelites in Psalm 83:6, the Russians and Iran are mentioned in Ezekiel chapter 38, and Syria itself is refereed to as the King of the North in Daniel 11:40. These actors could move into action at any moment, which is exactly what Bible prophecy calls for.
