THE FALL OF YEMEN -- Prophetic ' Death Knell ' for Saudi Arabia

January 23, 2015

The Middle East is unravelling rapidly.   ' The fall ' this week of long-time US ally , Yemen , into the hands of pro-Iranian ' Houthi ' rebels is a geo-political earthquake , that will have grave consquences for the whole world.  More immediately , this power shift now presents an existential threat to the ' Sunni ' Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  With a new ' hostile ' Shi'ite regime now on its southern border & controlled by its arch nemesis Iran , the global oil-giant  Saudi Arabia is potentially at risk.  If Saudi Arabia were to fall , world stability would crash.


Yemen  -  for decades a largely lawless & untamed wilderness  -  has been shakily governed by ' pro-American ' leaders  while continuing to be wracked by warring militias.  In recent years it has become home to Al-Qaeda's most violent branch AQAP ( Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula )  &  the source of so many terrorist attacks world-wide in recent times , including the Paris Attacks just this month.


This week's developments as ' Houthi ' rebels  -  backed by the regime in Iran  -  overwhelmed Yemeni forces ,  seized the Presidential Palace  &  ousted the President & his entire cabinet represents a death blow to this failed nation state.  Strategically , it's a major victory for Iran's Shi-ite regime , virtually completing a ' hostile encirclement ' of the Sunni-ruled kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  Furthermore , the fall of Yemen now provides Iran with choke-points on both sides of the Arabian Peninsula  -  effectively being able to disrupt or blockade the major oil transit corridors out of the Middle East.


The death of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah ' within a day ' of Yemen's fall ... is not mere co-incidence !!!  It is part of unfolding Bible Prophecy , preparing the nations for the tumultuous end-times events that precede the return of the Lord Jesus Christ  &  his judgments on the nations.  King Abdullah's death  &  the fall of Yemen are key developments that have irreversibly destabilised the Saudi kingdom  &  left it ready for the next stage of prophetic fulfilment.   


These events are ' prophetic precursors ' to coming events foretold over 2,500 yrs ago  &  in one chapter of the Bible.  The old testament prophet Isaiah wrote of a grievous vision , wherein he describes dark events to befall Arabia ( known as ' the desert of the sea ' or Kedar ) This vision describes in sequence the ominous approach of 2 sinister forces ,  ' the treacherous dealer ' ( Iran' the spoiler ' ( Russia ).  The chapter details the ' fall of Babylon ' ( Iraq )  under the whirlwind advances of the  Russian - Iranian confederacy  before Saudi Arabia also falls " within a year ".  These events we are witnessing in the Middle East , are most assuredly the unfolding of latter-day Bible Prophecy  &  the spring-board to Iran's coming attack on the Saudi kingdom.

Isaiah 21v1-2 - The burden of the ' desert of the sea ' ( Saudi Arabia ).  As whirlwinds in the south pass through ;  so it cometh from the desert , from a  terrible land ( Iran ).  A grievous vision is declared unto me ;  ' the treacherous dealer ' ( Iran ) dealeth ' treacherously '  &  ' the spoiler ' ( Russia ) ' spoileth '.  Go up, O Elam ( Iran ) :  besiege , O Media ( Iran ) ;  all the sighing thereof have I made to cease . . .  v9  he answered  &  said , Babylon ( Iraq ) is fallen , is fallen  &  all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground . . . v16  The Lord said unto me ,  Within a year . . .  &  all the glory of Kedar ( Saudi Arabia ) shall fail  &  the residue of the number of archers , the mighty men of the children of Kedar ( Saudi Arabia ) shall be diminished . . . for the LORD , God of Israel hath spoken it.
