For the first time, Russia and Iran will hold a joint naval maneuver in the Caspian Sea, The Iranian Mehr News Agency reported Wednesday.
According to the report, the maneuver will include 30 Russian and Iranian ships, as well as helicopters
This is extremely interesting, since the Caspian is the source of the gas in the BKT pipeline. Iran and Russia have disputed the Caspian Sea region for decades. Is an energy partnership being planned? A gas cartel? And will this new friendship extend to join exercises in the Persian Gulf, currently under US control?
Prophecy makes it clear that Russia and Iran will join against Israel. As the people of Israel join fellow Jews the world over in remembering Tisha B’Av, it’s important to remember that God is allowing the nations to ‘imagine a vain thing’, but that He will ultimately redeem the remnant. The clock is ticking closer and closer to midnight.
