Saudi Arabia allies Bahrain Sudan and UAE act against Iran

5 January 2016

Protests in Iran against Shiekh Nimr al-Nimr's execution by Saudi ArabiaMonday saw the third day of protests in Iran against Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr’s execution

A number of Saudi Arabia’s allies have joined diplomatic action against Iran after the Saudi embassy in Tehran was attacked amid a row over the execution of a Shia Muslim cleric.

Bahrain and Sudan have both severed relations with Iran, and the UAE has downgraded its diplomatic team.

Saudi Arabia on Sunday severed ties and gave Iran’s diplomats two days to go.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said trade links with Iran would be cut and air traffic links stopped.

But in an interview with Reuters news agency, Mr al-Jubeir also said Iranian pilgrims travelling to holy sites in Mecca and Medina would still be allowed to enter.

Saudi Arabia and Iran are respectively the key Sunni and Shia powers in the region and back opposing sides in Syria and Yemen.

On Monday, a White House spokesman called on both countries to “show some restraint and to not further inflame tensions that are on quite vivid display in the region”.

A remarkable New Alliance continue’s to emerge in the Middle East.  This is not a surprise to Bible Students as it is fully expected that the southern Arab Nations will support Israel in the latter days making up the King of the South based on Bible Prophecy.  Whereas Iran will be with Russia and Europe when they invade the Middle East.  This is what we read in Ezekiel 38.

1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog (Heb. sig. ‘chief one’ eg. someone like Putin), the land of Magog (Germany), the chief prince of Meshech (Moscow) and Tubal (Tobolsky), and prophesy against him, 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: 4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: 5 Persia (Iran), Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: 6 Gomer (France), and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (Turkey) of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. 7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.  (ie. Russia is to be a ‘guard’ unto these nations, so that they come under her protection.)  As Ezekiel continues these nations are described as coming against the King of the South.
So according to Bible Prophecy the Biblical King of the South will see an alignment between Egypt with Israel along with the Arab Gulf States who are largely the descendents of Ishmael the son of Abraham by his wife’s maid Hagar (Genesis 16:3). The King of the South will oppose aggression from Russia and the EU.  They will be supported by America and Britain.  This News Item shows that events among the Nations are continuing to see this alignment take shape according to Bible Prophecy.

Yet again we see the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible falling into place before our very eyes.  See this article to learn more about this and the latter day prophecies of the Bible.
