The unstable Iraqi government is actually setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled

JD: In the unstable war torn country of Iraq there’s some activities going on politically to former Prime Ministers vying for the leadership role there.

KT: They’re all political Islamic groups, Jihadi Islamic groups, all of them are committed to the armed struggle and all of them seek to impose Sharia law. So we could see rising tensions between them and a lot of harsh words and blustery rhetoric especially from Erdogan of Turkey. It’s funny how you have to twist yourself into a pretzel to try to make moderates out of these Jihadi Muslim groups but the Turks do it.

JD: And Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan says he’s pinning his hope on the cleric Muqtada al-Sadr to help bring this all together.  Is that good or is that bad?

KT: Well it’s pretty extraordinary 5 months after Iraq’s election they still don’t have a government and certainly not a government that’s emerged from the elections. They have a caretaker government. And all of these different parties, all of these different forces, all of these outside interest Turkey and Iran in particular but also the United States are jocking for position trying to advance their guy into the lead position. The Turks are now getting involved as you mentioned backing Moqtada al-Sadr but even that’s not a sure bet because Sadar’s own movements seems to be splitting; some going pro Iran and some of them staying with Sadr who’s carved out a more natural position.

This is a very hard one to call Jimmy because there’s so many moving parts and so many parties. The Kurds for example have 60 members of the new Iraqi parliament. Those 60 parliament members belong to 7 different parties, and that’s just the Kurds. You’re talking about dozens and dozens of political parties and each of those parties are split into factions and all of them are trying to get the best deals for themselves.

JD: Ken Timmerman with details on the unstable Iraqi government in this war torn nation.

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

Since 1991 Iraq has been a focus of the world as we have seen two major wars in this region and efforts to rebuild this war torn Middle Eastern state. In Iraq 6 months after their most recent national elections they have not been able to form a government. This instability in Iraq is a precursor to the end of time scenario that is found in Revelation chapter 18 as it relates to the return of Babylon to the world stage. Babylon, modern day Iraq will be a world economic political governmental system lead by the antichrist in the last days. That stage is set for fulfillment.
