Vladimir Putin is on the march in the Middle East

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: There’s a conference going on in Moscow with Russia, Turkey and Syria coming together and Iran to discuss peace in Syria but at the same time they take the opportunity to bring Hamas and Fatah. The Russians are telling them hey if you two guys get together you can win this situation with the Israeli’s.

DD: Well Jimmy there’s just no question now that Vladimir Putin is on the march in the Middle East. He’s influencing countries all over the region. I just mentioned Lebanon they’re stepping up their relations there. They have clearly helped the Assad regime to win the war, they haven’t completely won it yet but for the most part they have in Syria. Whereas three years ago Assad was losing and before that the US was saying he was going to be out of power, we’ll make sure of that, well that didn’t happen. Stepping up relations with Iraq who also with Saudi Arabia with the Khashoggi affair having harmed relations with the US he’s stepping into that vacuum.

The Jerusalem report this week said that Russia will be the dominant power in the region before long and of course that includes Gaza. They’ve had relations with Hamas and Islamic Jihad for some time now but they’re stepping that up. So it’s a very very bad situation Jimmy. And you know the war front heating up in the north and in the Gaza Strip and Hamas will take aide wherever they can get it. And again we are seeing the old Soviet Union style intervention in the region returning and that’s obviously not good for Israel. Netanyahu going to meet with Putin soon and I’m sure he’ll be bringing all this up and trying to persuade him to tone this thing down. But they’re on a role Jimmy and it doesn’t look like it's going to turn around anytime soon.

JD: David Dolan with details on how Vladimir Putin is gaining greater influence in the Middle East almost on a daily bases.

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

David Dolan gave us a report on the growing influence and presence of Russia and President Putin in the Middle East. The old Soviet Union had a similar impact in the Middle East several decades ago. But today this Russian presence and influence in this key region of the world is like it has never been before. In fact, Russia’s power in the state of Syria and Putin’s control of many of the Middle Eastern players fits the prophetic scenario that is found in Ezekiel 38. Magog in that passage verse 2, is modern day Russia. The personality Gog could today refer to Vladimir Putin. Ezekiel’s prophecy could be fulfilled very soon now.

Two international conferences have been held to focus on how to deal with the Iranian threat in our world today, one sponsored by the United States in Warsaw and the other led by Russia from Moscow

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Let's look across the entire world, in Moscow there’s a meeting going on between Iran, Russia, and Turkey, long term talks for peace, some type of peace in Syria. Meanwhile in Warsaw the United States according to Russia are holding up a conference there and beating the war drums. Is that a good evaluation there?

KT: Well the Russians are calling these dueling summits where the Russians have convoked the leaders of Iran, Turkey to Moscow. And the Americans have gotten senior representatives from 60 nations to come to Poland to talk about the Middle East and especially about Iran. So I wouldn’t call it beating the drums of war. The United States, Trump Administration is not talking about going to war with Iran despite what all the alarmist would like us to believe.

We’re talking about again recreating or re-forging this international alliance to increase the pressure on the Iranian regime so the regime will back off from its terrorist operations in Europe and else where around the world, so it will back off from its nuclear weapons programs, so it will back off on the murder against its own opposition domestically and elsewhere. I don’t think the Iranians are going to be affected by it but that’s what’s going on. You have these two different summits this week one in Warsaw and the other in Moscow.

JD: Ken Timmerman giving us the details on two international conferences with a focus on dealing with the Iranian threat in our world today, one held in Warsaw led by the United States and the other in Moscow that was led by Russia.

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

Ken Timmerman laid out the purpose of the two conferences, one in Warsaw and the other in Moscow with a focus on the Iranian threat for our world. Ken reported that Iran will do its own thing whatever these conferences may decide.

Iran’s activities follow the prophetic scenario that is found in Ezekiel 38 and Daniel 11. Iran will help form the alignment of Islamic nations who will come to destroy the Jewish State of Israel. However, these same prophetic passages reveal the truth that God will intervene to protect the Jewish people from total destruction, that’s God’s plan for the future.
