Russia is dividing it's military between the Ukraine and Syria

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: There’s now a report that the Russian’s may be planning a new invasion on the Ukraine trying to open up two fronts trying to distract from what’s going on in Syria is that a possibility?

KT: Well these are very disturbing reports that are coming out of Ukraine itself. It’s the Ukrainian government who’s talking about a massive Russian troop build up and here are the reports vary from some where between seventy thousand troops to two hundred and sixty thousand troops in the contested area of eastern Ukraine. It’s clear that the Russians have a huge military equipment build up. There’s over a thousand main battle tanks that they’ve amassed there along the Ukrainian border.

You’ve got to really wonder why the Russians would want to do this at a very sensitive time in the relations with the United States and with the rest of the world. Russia is becoming increasingly isolated; I think that’s true. There are activities in Syria that are not benefiting them tremendously. In fact, when reports came out of the US air strike and artillery strike against those Russian contractors, the military contractors where two hundred Russians were killed as they tried to caution to the US controlled area of the Syrian-Iraq border a couple of months ago. This has really created quite a bit of distention back home.  The Russian people are very worried about this they see another foreign war another foreign entanglement.

You’re right Putin could either trying to distract his home audience from what’s going on in Syria or he could just be thinking he could get away with anything and nobody is going to stop him. We’ll just have to see how he does it because the United States under President Trump has provided defensive military equipment to the Ukraine. Obviously we don’t have troops there we haven’t welcomed Ukraine into NATO so there’s no mutual defense treaty. But the US is concerned about Ukraine’s territorial integrity. And I don’t think President Trump would be favorable to a Russian military there. I don’t think he’s going to put US troops on the line to stop it, that’s pretty sure I think. 

JD: Ken Timmerman explaining how Russia is dividing its military between the Ukraine and Syria.

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

Russia is referred to as Magog in Ezekiel 38:2. The end of time scenario that is found in Bible prophecy says that there will be two major powers at the beginning of the tribulation period. Russia will be one of those powers and they will lead a Middle Eastern Islamic alignment to destroy the Jewish State and the other the Revived Roman Empire, Daniel 7:7, 8, 23, 24.

With the threat of Russia invading the Ukraine and having a strong presence in Syria the stage is being set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
