Signs of the End Times

The Resurrection and Rapture, and the Tribulation is coming!

By Craig C. White

Welcome to the end times. You’re late! Just to be certain that we are all aware; the Antichrist is now identifiable. The one sign that Jesus will give to Israel that proves he is truly their God is set to happen any day. Jesus Christ is about to come with a trumpet call to raise the dead and to take away Christians. Jesus is coming. Not in five years but very very soon!

There is a terrible time of trouble coming on the earth. The bible calls this seven year long period the Tribulation. The Tribulation period was designed by God to chastise the nation of Israel for their rebellion. During the Tribulation Israel will be overrun by its enemies. Many Jews will be killed or captured, and many others will flee to the Jordanian wilderness for refuge. Jerusalem will suffer the worst. At the end of the Tribulation period Israel will remember that their God is faithful. The God of Israel will never leave them or forsake them. He will be their God forever.

The Tribulation period is also a time when God will judge the nations. It is a time of terrible wars, massive earthquakes, raging seas, drought, starvation, and tremendous numbers of deaths, great darkness, and much more. Luckily God has made a way for individuals to escape from suffering through the Tribulation period.

The Apostle Paul told the Christians in Greece that they would be taken away to heaven before the Tribulation period began on earth (2Thesalonians 2). This is known as the Rapture of the Church. Paul told the early Christians that the Tribulation couldn’t begin until Satan fell from heaven and then empowered a man on earth called the Antichrist. The Antichrist would rule over the next world empire and torment the nation of Israel. Paul said that before the Tribulation began the Antichrist would be revealed on earth. Before the Tribulation began believers in Jesus Christ would be taken away up into heaven. So identifying the man who will be the Antichrist would be the end times sign that the Rapture is about to happen!

How will we be able to identify the man known as the Antichrist? There are several specific things that the bible tells us to look for. One of the most obvious signs is that he will claim to be God. Today I know of one world leader who is claiming to be God. Turkish President Erdogan along with his supporters has now officially declared that Erdogan is God. As a matter of fact if you drive down the streets of Turkey you will see giant banners inviting you to join in the celebration of Erdogan’s holy birthday! The Turkish people now sing a song that claims that “Erdogan always gets his power from Allah!” But wait, there are several more end times signs that Turkish President Erdogan fulfills!

In Ezekiel chapter 38 and 39 we are told of two invasions into Israel led by the “chief prince” or primary governor of Turkey. President Erdogan fulfills that description. He was elected as President of Turkey in December 2014 and served as Prime Minister before that since 2002.

The bible says that the Antichrist will appear with lying wonders. That means that he will appear to do miracles but they won’t be legitimate. Turkish President Erdogan has performed fake healings during campaign rallies. The bible also tells us about an image that speaks. Erdogan recently gave a speech to his supporters as a nine foot tall hologram. No kidding.

The Antichrist will rule over the next World Empire and attack Jerusalem. Erdogan has vowed to do both of these things. His supporters say that Turkey is the only legitimate head of the next Islamic Caliphate.

Another thing that the Antichrist will do is to invade Syria and destroy its capital city of Damascus. He will then lead his troops into Israel. Erdogan has already vowed to overthrow Syrian President Assad in Damascus. Also every nation that Ezekiel 38:5 says will invade Israel is now fighting in Syria! I don’t know if these invasions will happen before the Rapture or before the Tribulation but if we do see Turkey invade Syria then we ought to be absolutely certain that Erdogan is the Antichrist. And if he is indeed the Antichrist then we can be certain that the Rapture and the Tribulation are about to happen!

During the Tribulation God will raise up a rotten ruler in Israel. The Prophet Zechariah calls him the idol shepherd. We have all probably been comforted by the reelection of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but I am afraid that Netanyahu will not hold onto his authority for very long. World powers like the United States, United Nations, France, and others have all shifted into high gear to create a Palestinian State inside of Israel without Prime Minister Netanyahu’s consent. There now exists a worldwide movement to get rid of Benjamin Netanyahu. A rotten Israeli ruler is another sign of the end times.

There is yet another sign during the end times. It is a sign to the nation of Israel that Jesus Christ is truly their God. It is also a warning to Israel that their time of Tribulation is about to begin. This sign is the flooding of Mosul in northern Iraq and the plundering of the city by its enemies. The Prophet Nahum tells us all about it, and the news says that the Mosul dam is feeble. So keep your eyes on Mosul!

The Tribulation is a terrible time of trouble on earth. You don’t want to suffer through it. All signs point towards its soon beginning. Call on the Lord Jesus Christ while you still can and be saved from your sins and escape the seven year long Tribulation period on earth.

Jeconiah a cursed king

Jeconiah a cursed king

Only Jesus can be the Messiah

By Craig C. White

King David was a descendant of the tribe of Judah. God said that the Messiah would come out of the tribe of Judah. God also promised King David that his descendant would be king over all the earth.

Gen 49:10  The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

The name Shiloh means “the one to whom it belongs”. In this case he is the one to whom the scepter belongs. The scepter is the staff of the eternal king of earth namely the Messiah.

Psa 132:11  The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

However the royal line of Judah ran into a BIG problem around 590 BC. The Hebrew King Jeconiah (or Coniah) didn’t listen to God’s warnings about Israel’s disobedience. So the nation of Israel was taken away captive to Babylon. Because of King Jeconiah’s wickedness God cursed the royal line of King David. No descendant of King Jeconiah could ever sit on the throne again!

Jeremiah 22:28-30  Is this man Coniah a despised broken idol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore are they cast out, he and his seed, and are cast into a land which they know not?  29  O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.  30  Thus saith the LORD, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.

So the royal lineage of the tribe of Judah was cursed by God in King Jeconiah. Jesus’ father Joseph belonged to the tribe of Judah through David and Jeconiah. Jesus’ mother Mary was a descendent of King David’s son Nathan. Only though a virgin birth and the adoption into Joseph’s family could the prophecy be fulfilled that the Messiah would be a descendant of King David and belong to the royal line of Judah.

Jesus Christ’s virgin birth makes him the only person who ever lived who can fulfill the prophecy that the Messiah would be a descendant of King David and still belong to the royal line of Judah past the cursed King Jeconiah.

Isaiah 9:6 below reflects Jesus’ birth and adoption into the tribe of Judah’s royal lineage.

Isa 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Second Coming Wrath Path

Second Coming Wrath Path

Out of Egypt have I called my son.

Matthew 2:15

By Craig C. White

While dispensing God’s wrath at the second coming, Jesus will take a prescribed route. Many bible students think that Jesus will descend out of heaven and touch down on the Mount of Olives.

Zec 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

At the second coming Jesus will in fact stand on the Mount of Olives but not at first. I think Jesus will take a more circuitous route during his Revelation. His route will be one that we have seen before. The route of Jesus Christ’s Second coming will be very similar to the route that Israel followed out of Egypt as God led them. Come with me as I follow the Revelation Wrath Path.

This commentary chronicles Jesus’ path of Revelation and vengeance during his second coming at the end of the tribulation. Surprisingly this journey does not begin in Jerusalem. As a matter of fact it doesn’t end in Jerusalem either. Instead God begins the Revelation of Jesus out of Egypt!

Num 24:8-9 God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows. 9 He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee.

Hos 11:1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

   When Jesus was a boy God called him out of Egypt. Like many prophecies this one has two distinct applications separated by time. At Jesus’ second coming God will again call his son out of Egypt! That will be a day of wrath and revelation of righteous judgment.

Mat 2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

   Jesus will ride out of heaven into Egypt on a cloud. Trust me this is a scary cloud. The following verse was written long after God delivered the nation of Israel from Egypt; so it cannot pertain to Israel’s exodus out of Egypt. It is about Jesus’ second coming!

Isa 19:1-2 The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it. 2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

Verse 2 (above) sounds like what is happening in Egypt today, however when Jesus passes through Egypt; the people will be completely confounded. The Revelation of Jesus Christ will be terrifying.

Jer 4:13 Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled.

Christ’s second coming is a whirlwind tour! Habakkuk prophesies about Jesus next location. Check out the Revelation Wrath Path map bellow for these bible locations. Remember that the route of the Revelation of Jesus is very similar to the route that Israel took out of Egypt.

Revelation Wrath PathRevelation Wrath Path: Map of Jesus Christ’s return trip at the end of the 7 year tribulation period. Called “the day of the LORD”, or “the day of the LORD’S wrath”. Jesus will destroy all the armies that have come against Israel! It is a day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God (Rom 2:5).

The battle for Mosul vs the flood zone

The battle for Mosul vs the flood zone

battle-for-mosul-vs-the-flood-zone

By Craig C. White

The following verse was written about the place where the city of Mosul sits today. Mosul is situated along the Tigris River in northern Iraq. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS. Mosul is Iraq’s second largest city with a prewar population of two and one half million. After two years of ISIS control one and one half million people remain in the city.

Nahum 1:8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.

The Prophet Nahum predicted the flooding and destruction of the ancient city of Nineveh. Nineveh was the capital city of the Assyrian Empire. Nineveh had great high walls making an attack very difficult. In 612 BC God sent torrential rain to swell the Tigris River and breach the walls of Nineveh. After the flood Nineveh’s enemies assaulted the city putting an end to the Assyrian Empire. The ruins of Nineveh still lay desolate within the city limits of Mosul.

The flood that Nahum describes seems to be far worse than the flood that broke down the walls of Nineveh. Today the Mosul dam lies a few miles upstream of Mosul. The Mosul dam has been labeled as the most dangerous dam in the world. It is in danger of failing. Nahum says that the gates of the Tigris River will be opened. Today the gates of the Mosul dam have come off of their hinges.

Nahum also says that the Assyrian Empire will not rise up a second time (Nahum 1:9). ISIS in Mosul is trying to create a new Assyrian Empire. So I suspect that ISIS in Mosul will be destroyed in a tremendous flood.

The same three nations that overthrew Nineveh are fighting against Mosul today. The Iraqi Army is already fighting within the eastern city limits of Mosul. The Kurds are fighting to the north, and Iranian backed Shiite militias are fighting to the far west of Mosul.

The battle for Mosul has been going on for about two months. The fighting has gotten much harder and slower now that the Iraqi Army has entered into the more densely populated city limits on the eastern side of Mosul.

ISIS still controls most of Mosul. The center of ISIS territory lies in the worst flood zone. If the Mosul dam were to break then parts of Mosul could be covered by 75 feet of water. The Prophet Nahum says that the inhabitants of Nineveh will be gathered close together and drunken when they are destroyed.

Nahum 1:10 For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.

Perhaps the armies that have gathered against Mosul will drive ISIS towards the center of the city where they are certain to be swept away in the flood.

Princes of Turkey!

Princes of Turkey!

Most prominent amongst his brothers.

Ezekiel 38: 1-3

By Craig C. White

I know that most Bible prophecy teachers say that Magog in the Ezekiel 38 refers to Russia. But it is High Time to recognize that Magog is not Russia! That view came about by transcribing “chief” (or the Hebrew “rosh”) to mean Russia (Eze 38:1-3). Transposing Hebrew words into English phonetic equivalents is not proper Bible prophecy interpretation technique. That technique is not used elsewhere to interpret Bible prophecy. Rosh means first or primary.

Magog is mentioned in the genealogies of Genesis 10 as well as 1Chronicles 1. Magog is mentioned alongside of his brothers Meshech, Tubal, and Gomer, plus a few more. It is interesting to note that most Bible prophecy teachers place Tubal, Gomer, Togarmah, and Meshech in today’s Turkey.

Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, and Togarmah are all people. As a matter of fact they are relatives. Magog, Meshech, Tubal and Gomer are brothers. Togarmah is Gomer’s son. They are among the first families to resettle the world after the devastation of Noah’s flood.

Gen 10:1-3 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. 3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

Magog, Meshech, Tubal, and Gomer are also sons of Japheth. Japheth and his sons all settled in today’s Turkey. You could call Japheth the King of Turkey. His sons are all Princes. Magog was the chief or most prominent Prince amongst his brothers. Princes were set over provinces.

Eze 38:1-3 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal, 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:

Now let’s allow the Bible to interpret the Bible. The theme of Princes settling and ruling over Provinces in a land is used in many other places in the Bible. The Princes of Israel are mentioned a bunch of times. Princes of other nations are also mentioned (1Sam 29:3, 2Sam 10:3, Esther 1:3, Esther 1:14, Psa 68:31, Psa 83:11, Isa 19:11, Isa 23:8, Isa 49:7, Jer 25:19, Jer 38:18, Eze 26:16, Eze 27:21, Dan 3:3, Mat 20:25, 1Co 2:6, plus many other verses). Princes typically refer to the sons of rulers. Here is an example of how princes were typically set over provinces in other countries.

Esther 1:14And the next unto him was Carshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena, and Memucan, the seven Princes of Persia and Media, which saw the king’s face, and which sat the first in the kingdom;)

So Magog was the son of Japheth. Japheth was the king of what we know as Turkey today. Magog and his brothers ruled over different provinces in the land we call Turkey today. Magog was the chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal. In other words, Magog was the most prominent Prince amongst his brothers. Remember that Meshech and Tubal settled in today’s Turkey. In prophetic terms Magog is the primary governor of Turkey. I would call him the Prime Minister. Today Turkey’s ex-Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is the prime candidate to fulfill the end time role of Magog the primary governor of Turkey.
