The Major pre-Tribulation Bible Prophecy

Preview to Armageddon is forming now!

By Craig C. White

In Ezekiel 38 we are told that Iran, Sudan, and Libya will invade Israel. So if we were to see all of these troops amassed on the Israel border then we would be alerted to the probable invasion, right? Well my friends all of these armies are mobilized just north of the Israel border. As a matter of fact they have all been there for the past four years. They are all fighting today in Syria!

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

The verse above describes the armed forces that will join Turkey in its invasion into Israel. Turkey will be joined by Iran (Persia), Ethiopia (Includes Sudan), and Libya. This invasion is a preview to Armageddon.

How many Troops are likely to turn to Invade Israel? The Turkish Army is amassed along the Syrian border. The Turkish Army has over 400,000 troops. The Free Syrian Army is fighting against the Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime. The Free Syrian Army is made up of primarily Al-Qaeda fighters from Libya along with a few Syrians and Jordanians. There are some 300,000 soldiers in the Free Syrian Army. Although as of October 2013 even more Al-Qaeda soldiers have been flooding into Syria. Iran and Sudan are represented in Syria by Hezbollah. For some reason nobody wants to admit that Hezbollah is present in Syria. Nobody wants to say how many Hezbollah soldiers are in Syria. However reports say that their numbers are increasing. I heard early 2013 reports that some 10,000 Hezbollah soldiers were in Syria, but judging by the damage that they are doing I think their numbers are probably closer to 50,000. So there are some 750,000 soldiers available to Invade Israel. That is not counting the 300,000 active soldiers in the Syrian Army. Since Syria is not mentioned among the Armies that invade Israel in Ezekiel 38 we won’t include their numbers. Al-Qaeda from Iraq (also known as ISIS) is also fighting in Syria but Ezekiel chapter 38 does not mention them. So we will not include their numbers.

Ezekiel 38:4 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:

After the Turkish army along with the Free Syria Army destroys Damascus then God may turn them toward Israel. All of the armies described in Ezekiel 38 are present and accounted for in Syria. The Major pre-Tribulation Bible Prophecy is beginning. The alarm is ringing. It is High Time to Awake!

Aiming for Hamah

Aiming for Hamah

Hamah will fall before Damascus

Hamah will fall before Damascus

By Craig C. White

Things have changed in Syria. Huge arms shipments have upset the balance of power there. Beginning in March 2015 Turkey and Saudi Arabia have teamed up to flood Al-Qaeda rebels in Syria with heavy arms. The rebels are thrilled. They say that they are now able to conquer Syria’s larger cities like Hamah, Syria’s fourth largest city. Hamah is located about 70 miles from Turkey in western Syria. Hamah is mentioned in Jeremiah 49:23. In Jeremiah the city of Hamah hears reports of a coming attack. Shortly afterwards Damascus is destroyed.

Jeremiah 49:23-25 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet. 24 Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail. 25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!

Al-Qaeda rebels are fighting to take over Syria and to remove Syrian President Assad. The Free Syrian Army consists mostly of Al-Qaeda fighters from Libya. Al-Qaeda from northern Iraq (ISIS) and Al-Qaeda from Saudi Arabia are also fighting in Syria. These Al-Qaeda factions do not get along with one another. They are all fighting for their own preeminence over a vanquished Syria.

These huge arms shipments are being delivered mainly to the Free Syrian Army (or Al-Qaeda from Libya). Al-Qaeda from Libya is fighting on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood as well as on behalf of Turkish President Erdogan. The goal is to install Muslim Brotherhood leadership in Syria. After that the plan is to take over the entire Middle east, central Asia and northern Africa. ISIS is the odd man out as far as Erdogan and the Muslim Brotherhood is concerned. That is because if ISIS (or Al-Qaeda from northern Iraq) conquers Syria then they would install their own leadership. The ISIS Caliphate is out. The Turkish Caliphate is in!

The heavily armed Free Syrian Army (Libya) is eager to strike Hamah. After that they will strike Damascus. Will they do this alone? I think that the bible hints at a Turkish led attack on Damascus, Syria. Most of these weapons have been shipped directly to Turkey’s capital city of Ankara. Ankara is located in the middle of Turkey far from the fighting in Syria.

In the bible the Antichrist is compared to the ancient Assyrian kings. In 734 BC the Assyrians attacked Syria and then attacked northern Israel. I think that Turkish President Erdogan will fulfill bible prophecy as he destroys Damascus and then leads the armies that are now fighting in Syria into northern Israel. Ezekiel chapter 38 describes this Turkish led invasion into Israel. Every nation that is listed in Ezekiel chapter 38 is fighting in Syria today!

Be alert! Soon our news broadcasts will be filled with reports about an attack on the city of Hamah in Syria. Expect Damascus to fall next!

Intelligence reports reach Hamath

Turkey prepares to attack Damascus

By Craig C. White

Turkey’s parliament passed a mandate that allows the Turkish army to enter Syria over the next year. Turkish involvement in Syria has been protested by the Turkish people for the past few years. According to Jeremiah 49 Damascus will suffer attack and be destroyed.

Jeremiah 49:23 says that intelligence reports of the attack come to Syria’s northwestern cities. Today Hamah and Erfad are two of those cities. The attack emanates from the Turkish border!

Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.

Guess what? Syria’s northwestern cities are hearing those intelligence reports now!

Starting in early September 2013 Turkey has begun moving heavy military equipment along Syria’s northwestern border. Turkey’s military equipment includes tanks, rocket-launchers, missile launchers, and anti-aircraft guns. Turkish military planes have also flown in to the region; those include F-16 fighters, tanker, and cargo planes.

We have been told that Syria may have used chemical weapons, and that justifies overthrowing the Syrian government. Don’t be fooled. Whether or not Syria used chemical weapons; world powers will overthrow Syria. Jeremiah 49:25-27 tells us that Damascus will be besieged. The Syrians will not surrender; and all of the young men and Syrian army will be killed inside of the city.

I suspect that intelligence reports of a gathering attack will continue to increase. The next events that Jeremiah records are of terrified citizens in Damascus as they flee the city running for their lives. Damascus has a population of about 2.6 million in the metropolitan area. Hundreds of thousands of Damascus residents have already fled the city. Hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees have also fled to Damascus from outlying areas. I suspect that the entire city will empty except for the young men and the Syrian Army (Jeremiah 49:26).

The nations are disquieted over Syria

Share

The nations are disquieted over Syria

verse by verse through Jeremiah 49:23-27

By Craig C. White

Turkish President Erdogan wants to overthrow Syrian President Assad in Damascus now!

Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.

What is Jeremiah telling us? Obviously this prophecy is concerning Damascus, Syria. In the verse above Jeremiah mentions two cities. Hamath and Arpad are both located in northwestern Syria. Today Hamah is Syria’s fifth largest city with a population of 313 thousand. Hamah is further south but still close to the Turkish border. Arpad is modern tell Erfad about 25 miles north of Aleppo and about 20 miles south of the Turkish border. These cities are along the path of an invasion launched from Turkey headed towards Damascus.

The people of northwestern Syria have heard intelligence reports that the Turkish army is about to invade Syria. The army’s target is Damascus and they are coming through their cities! The people of northwestern Syria are terrified. Their hearts faint with fear

There is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet. The sea in bible prophecy can refer to the Mediterranean Sea when it is accompanied with the definite article “the”. The sea can also refer to the nations. There is no article used here in the original Hebrew. I think that Jeremiah is saying that the nations will have great anxiety over the coming Turkish invasion into Syria. The Hebrew word translated sorrow means anxiety, fearfulness, carefulness, or heaviness.

So the nations will be very nervous concerning the coming Turkish invasion into Syria. The Turkish army’s goal is the destruction of Damascus. The English says it well here. The nations will not be able to be still. The Hebrew word translated quiet is defined below. The nations of the world will not be able to be at rest. I think that they are already feeling uneasy concerning Syria.

quiet – shâqat, shaw-kat’

A primitive root; to repose (usually figuratively): – appease, idleness, (at, be at, be in, give) quiet (-ness), (be at, be in, give, have, take) rest, settle, be still.

Jeremiah 49:24 Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail.

Damascus is waxed feeble. This is the idea of failing in your old age. Damascus is about to die. Damascus turneth herself to flee. This could refer to the city preparing to relinquish its life and it could also refer to the cities inhabitants as they attempt to escape.

The Hebrew word translated fear means to tremble with terror. Anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail; literally Damascus is feeling a localized tightness like a woman about to give birth.

Jeremiah 49:25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!

Two different Hebrew words for city are used in the verse above. The city of praise is a fortified city that has been celebrated in song. When God says “how is the city not left” he could be communicating his astonishment that even after a terrible assault on Damascus, the city has still not surrendered. When God calls Damascus “the city of my joy!” he is specifically saying that he delights in the cities old buildings. So we are looking for the destruction of the old part of the city. Damascus is the oldest continually inhabited city on earth. It was founded by the Aramaeans over four thousand years ago, and was inhabited two thousand years before that. Damascus is a living depiction of human history.

Jeremiah 49:26 Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the LORD of hosts.

In this verse the young men are contrasted to the men of war. The men of war obviously represent the Syrian Army. Lately Syrian citizens have joined Assad and the Syrian army to help defend their country. The Syrian National Defense Force is a newly formed civilian guard. I think that the Syrian National Defense Force are represented by the young men in this verse.

It sounds like the young men of Damascus will stay behind to defend the city. Perhaps they will be the first line of defense. The young men of Damascus will die in its streets. The Syrian army will be bunkered in Damascus. When God says that all the men of war shall be cut off he means all. Jeremiah isn’t necessarily saying that this assault on Damascus will last only one day. That day refers to the entire duration be it one day or longer.

Jeremiah 49:27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad.

Let’s remember that this prophecy refers to two separate invasions of Damascus. The first invasion happened in 734 BC. The Assyrian empire invaded Syria, overthrowing several cities as they marched toward Damascus. The Assyrian army conquered Damascus but did not destroy the city. I think that Jeremiah is also prophesying about a second invasion of Damascus that seems to be forming now. God used the terminology kindle a fire to mean that the Assyrian army would besiege the city. Just as the ancient Assyrians assaulted the city in 734 BC, I think that the Turkish army will do likewise soon. The palaces of Benhadad refer to the ancient thrones of Syrian Kings in Damascus. Like the ancient invasion, this future invasion will also destroy Damascus’ seat of government.

So the Turkish army will march down from Syria’s northwestern border terrorizing cities along the way. Their goal is the destruction of Damascus. The nations of the world will be in a tumult. They will not be able to calm down. Damascus will prepare to die. The people will flee and the young men and army will fight to the death never surrendering. The oldest city on earth will be destroyed along with its historical buildings. Jeremiah describes a city under siege not a city obliterated by a single bomb.

Erdogan wants to invade Syria now!

Erdogan wants to invade Syria now!

In the news

By Craig C. White

Turkish President Erdogan wants to invade Syria before a coalition government is formed in the Turkish Parliament. He considers that he will have less presidential authority after a coalition government is formed. This is very big news. Erdogan has three goals. 1) To remove Assad from power. 2) To ensure that ISIS doesn’t form a state in northern Syria. 3) To ensure that the Kurds don’t gain too much control over a vanquished Syria. Erdogan’s ultimate goal is to install Muslim brotherhood leadership in Syria and then to form a four nation confederacy with Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. These nations will together conquer most of the Middle East!

Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.

For those of you who read my posts you already know that the Bible describes an attack on Syria and its capital city of Damascus that comes from the Turkish border. Word of this attack will first be heard in the northwest Syria city of Hamah. The residents of Damascus will flee to Jordan and Damascus will be destroyed!

Ezekiel 39 – The Supper of the Great God

Ezekiel 39 describes the battle of Armageddon

By Craig C. White

The verses below, describe the supper of the great God. Israel’s enemies will die on the battle ground and be eaten by birds and beasts. No thanks, I have reservations to the marriage supper of the Lamb. The supper of the great God happens at the battle of Armageddon described in Revelation 19.

Rev 19:17  And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

The battle of Armageddon is called the battle of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 39. Ezekiel also describes the supper of the great God.

Ezekiel 39:17  And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.  18  Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.  19  And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.  20  Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD. 

At the supper of the great God Israel’s enemies will be eaten by birds and wild animals. This is not to be confused with the marriage supper of the lamb. The marriage supper of the lamb is a very nice banquet where all Church age believers are presented to all faithful old testament Jews. All of whom have been resurrected from the dead, and will be very hungry. The marriage supper of the lamb happens on earth after the Great Tribulation. This is where I will eat steak with Ezekiel.

Rev 19:9  And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
