President Trump is headed for a summit with President Rouhani of Iran

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Donald Trump is heading for a summit with President Rouhani of Iran. So Ken do you think it’s going to happen? I don’t think it’s locked in totally yet. Do you think it will happen?

KT: It’s definitely not locked in at all. It’s right now in the stage of advanced rumor. And of course the President himself has fed the rumor by saying publicly he would meet with the Iranians anytime they wanted and without preconditions. Interestingly a top aid to the Supreme leader has come out publicly and saying we should have this meeting it would be good to do so. Others inside the Revolutionary Guards are strongly opposed to it. Look, I’m skeptical I think there are more obstacles than there are advantages.

The President has hinted that he wants to negotiate a new nuclear agreement with the Iranians. He has called the Iran nuclear deal the worst deal ever negotiated by any American administration. My sense is that what would be a better deal for the United States would be an unacceptable deal for the Iranian regime. So I think there are actually more obstacles in the way to this happening then there are chance of it taking place. 

JD: Ken Timmerman with details about a possible summit between US President Trump and Iranian President Rouhani.

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

It’s not absolute that the Trump-Rouhani summit will take place. However, both sides are in the talking stage right now. Ken called it advance rumor stage. Remember President Trump withdrew from the Iranian nuclear deal. Iran wants to restore that deal, Trump says that is possible. “Lets make a deal” says the deal making President however, past history with the Iranian leadership says not so quickly. The question then arises how can you deal with a nation who is committed to wiping the Jewish state off the face of the earth and then forgetting her name forever. By the way that’s Psalm 83:4.

Remember Iran has an eschatology that says the Messiah will come to power in Iran and set up a worldwide caliphate, a kingdom. There are two problems to that scenario. The Iranian Messiah is a false Messiah and Bible prophecy says that Iran will be wiped out not Israel, that’s Ezekiel 38:18 - 39:6. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
