Letter to the editor: Prophecy unfolds

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Jordanian King Abdullah have set up a war room in Jordan which they will share as they conduct military operations in Syria.

This represents an extreme reversal of Jordan’s policy.  Until now, Jordan fought against Russia’s protege Bashar Assad from a joint war room north of Amman called the U.S. Central Command Forward-Jordan.  That war room was part of a lineup with the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel.  But this month, Jordan shifted into a new plane.

Jordan tried to play down this shift, claiming it is designed to force the Syrian rebels in the south to accept a ceasefire and join peace talks with the United States and Russia on Syria’s future.

But make no mistake, this is the result of the United States failure to lead – and – it is right in-line with Bible prophecy in Ezekiel 38 which tells us Magog (Russia) will lead a coalition army in an invasion of Israel. The coalition will include Persia (Iran), Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer (Eastern Europe), Togarmah (Armenia) and Meshech and Tubal (Turkey).

Bible prophecy is unfolding right before our eyes.  When that happens, Jesus said, “Look up and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”  (Luke 21:28)
