The smaller war in the Middle East has been to defeat Islamic State, the bigger war will be with Iraq and Iran

JD: Over the years of Islamic State operation they’ve headquartered both in Syria and over there in Iraq. It was Mosul in Iraq before the Kurds the Iraqi military and some of the Revolutionary guard from Iran went in and ran Islamic State out of Mosul. And then they went after Raqqa, which is in Northern Syria, Islamic State headquarters as well. Now it seems that Raqqa has fallen and what’s next for Syria as it relates for Islamic State but what is next for the rest of the world; for what’s going to happen with Islamic State?

KT: President Trump has put the resources together to defeat the Islamic State. Now he has quit the Kurds in Northern Syria he’s put US military advisors on the ground to help them, and they are defeated. Here’s the problem is that the President has been focusing entirely on the Islamic State, on defeating ISIS and not keeping his eyes on other things that are just as important. Mainly you mentioned the future of Syria but also the future of Iraq.

We just had an absolutely catastrophic event this past week with the fall of Kirkuk to Iranian backed forces pushing the Kurds out of Kirkuk, which they have called their Jerusalem that’s how strongly they feel about it. The United States, even the President said we’re not taking sides in this fight between Baghdad and it’s Iranian allies and the Kurds.

I’m really a bit disappointed that the President has focused all of his attention on ISIS. That was an easy war let’s be frank about it. Once we had a President who engaged on the ground let lose the US military it turned out to be an easy war, a very small war in fact. The big war is in Iraq and the bigger war will eventually be with Iran as they move to dominate Syria and open that land bridge into Lebanon the Golan Heights as well right on Israel’s border.

JD: Ken Timmerman and his analysis of the little war and the bigger war in the Middle East.

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

The little war with Islamic State is not mentioned in the Bible but the players in the bigger war as reported by Ken Timmerman are mentioned. That would be Iran and its power in the Middle East is mentioned in Ezekiel 38:5. Mentioned there as Persia that was Iran’s Biblical name.

Iraq is also included in the prophetic scenario for the future. Iraq’s Biblical name is Babylon as mentioned in Jeremiah 50 & 51, Revelation 18, and Revelation 16:17 and following.

These passages revealed in the end time scenario for Iraq are part of a bigger war yet to come.
