Rouhani tells SCO summit: US poses ‘serious threat’ to world
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani says the Trump administration is a serious threat to the stability of the Middle East and the world, urging the international community to stand up to US unilateralism.
He was speaking at a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation — a Eurasian security alliance that includes China, India and Russia — in Bishkek, the capital of the Central Asian nation of Kyrgyzstan.
The Beijing-based Shanghai Bloc (Shanghai Cooperation Organization – SCO) was founded in 2001 consisting of China, Russia and the “stans”, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.
There is only one nation missing from the SCO that will set up a major prophecy for the last days. If/when Turkey joins in, the Gog Magog alliance will be in place. It is Turkey who has the allegiance of the Cush and Put nations found in Ezekiel 38:1-6 NIV.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said numerous times that Ankara will abandon its quest to join the EU if it is offered full membership in the SCO.

“In preparation for its role in Ezekiel’s war of Gog and Magog, Turkey will shift away from NATO and likely join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). During a trip to Russia in November 2013, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan once again said that Ankara would abandon its quest to join the European Union if it was offered full membership in the SCO.”
Ezekiel 38:5 NIV “Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.
- Persia is modern day Iran.
- Cush (eldest son of Noah’s son Ham) is the area of Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia
- Put (Son of Ham) Libya, possibly Tunisia and Algeria
- Gomer, Beth Togarmah, Meshech, Tubal are ancient names for Turkey
- Many nations with you: possibly additional North African Islamic allies
Gog and Magog will be the final war at the edge of the 7 year tribulation. The war will take place when Israel is living in a false peace (Ezekiel 38:11), no nation comes to Israel’s side (Ezekiel 38:13), and the war will be won without a shot fired by Israel (Ezekiel 38:18-21).
The enemy nations will fall on the mountains (Ezekiel 39:4) of Israel (Golan), and the weapons of the invaders will provide energy (nuclear) for Israel for 7 years (tribulation), Ezekiel 39:9-10.
It will take 7 months to bury the dead (Ezekiel 39:12) and the Jews will then know (covenant relationship) that it was God that provided the victory (Ezekiel 39:22), and a massive aliyah (Ezekiel 39:28), or return home, will begin.
