Russian President Vladimir Putin has summoned three of the major players to Russia to plan the future for the Middle East

JD: Seems like everything is kind of slowing down as far as the Civil War is concerned they’re going to move into another phase trying to put together a political structure. And in light of that Vladimir Putin summoned Bashar Assad of Syria, the President of Syria to Russia. The next day he had the leader of Turkey in Iran, President Rouhani of Iran and then President Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey. It looks like the President of Russia is trying to get all of his ducks in a row does it not?

KT: It looks like the President of Russia Jimmy has become the master of Middle East politics. And the man who is in charge of all of these different countries, he’s not hesitating to assert his control of the alliance that he also claims to be heading. So, this is an alliance between Russia, Turkey, Iran, and Syria and it’s an alliance for no good I can tell you that.

He spoke with the leaders of Turkey and Iran and they are looking to the future after the Syrian Civil War, which is not yet over. The fight against ISIS is nearly over and they’re trying to figure out how they’re going to bring about a political settlement. Bashar al Assad does not want the United Nations coming in to negotiate. My guess and I have to say I guess because we don’t have hard reporting yet out of this Summit but my guess is that Putin offered some assurances that if he were to allow the UN into Syria there would be serious restrictions on the role the UN could play. And they couldn’t push Assad out; Assad wants to stay in power.

But this is a big deal; it’s a shift in the power center in the Middle East away from the United States something that you and I have been talking about for several years now. The United States is become less central to the power events of the Middle East since President Obama was in power in office. And now President Trump is only gradually reasserting us and quite cautiously in fact. It’s a bit astonishing to see that how cautiously he is moving in Syria, Iraq and to counter Iran.

JD: Ken Timmerman with details on the meeting in Russia between the major players in a future Middle Eastern war.

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

Russia, Turkey, Iran, and Syria are the major players in the coming coalition that will align themselves against the Jewish State of Israel. The four mentioned nations and others mentioned in Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83, and Daniel 11 will come together to try to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, that’s Psalm 83:4.

This meeting in Russia could be indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
