The world wants to take the Golan Heights

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

By Craig C. White​

World governments have their sites on the Golan Heights in northern Israel as they seek a diplomatic solution to remove Syrian President Assad. They are trying to negotiate a deal that would give the Israeli portion of the Golan Heights to Syria. Turkey, the US, the UN, and the EU are all onboard.

According to Jeremiah 49:23-27 Turkey is the obvious candidate that will conquer Syria and destroy Damascus. Turkish President Erdogan wants to remove Assad from Damascus and then install a Muslim Brotherhood ruler over Syria.

The Bible compares the Antichrist to the ancient Assyrian kings because he will do the same things that the Assyrian kings did. The Assyrian kings conquered Syria and then invaded northern Israel. Turkish President Erdogan is ready to do both of these things.

Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist. Even before the Turkish Army has entered Syria he already has intentions to take the Golan Heights. This Turkish lead invasion into northern Israel is described in Ezekiel chapter 38. It is known as the battle of Gog and Magog. Turkey will lead Iran, Libya, and Sudan into Israel. All of these nations are already fighting in Syria and Iran has already fired missiles into the Golan Heights. Every nation that is mentioned in Ezekiel chapter 38 is already involved in the Syrian war. God will cause these armies to retreat from Israel using torrential rain, disease, and God will cause these armies to fight against one another.

The world has declared its desire to take the Golan Heights from Israel. Israel has already defended the Golan Heights against Iran (Hezbollah as well as the Iranian Army) and Libya (The Free Syrian Army, also known as the “moderate rebels”). Turkey will conquer Syria, destroy Damascus, and then lead the forces that are fighting in Syria today into the Golan Heights.

Today there is increased fighting on the Golan Heights. Iran and Hezbollah are fighting Libyan Al-Qaeda rebels (AKA the Free Syrian Army). The Syrian Army is preparing a major offensive.

Ezekiel chapter 38 describes Turkey as it leads Libya, Iran, and Sudan into Israel.

The handwriting is on the wall. Christians and Jews should recognize the events of our day. It is High Time to Awake.

Forsake your stuff and just run!

Forsake your house and just run!

The enemy is in the doorway!

By Craig C. White

We are given a pattern of the preliminary events of Jerusalem’s Great Tribulation in ancient history. Around 170 BC a Greek king named Antiochus Epiphanes ransacked the temple in Jerusalem and then claimed that he was god. This will be repeated in the future by the man we call the Antichrist. In Matthew 24 this is called the abomination of desolation. When the Antichrist spoils the temple in Jerusalem it will be the sign that the people living around Jerusalem should flee!

Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

What is the abomination of desolation? Before or during the seven year Tribulation period Israel will once again build another temple in Jerusalem. They will resume daily animal sacrifice there. The abomination of desolation is the stopping of the daily sacrifice. This was accomplished once before by Antiochus Epiphanes in 173 BC by deposing or murdering the rightful High Priest Onias III and replacing him with a false priest. Antiochus Epiphanes then began making sacrifices to himself as god (Dan 12:11). The future abomination of desolation will also be identified by the stopping of temple sacrifice. In the future the Antichrist will sit in the temple in Jerusalem and claim that he is a deity. This is the abomination of desolation.

2Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

The region around Jerusalem is called Judea. When the residents of Judea see the temple being spoiled they are warned to forsake their homes and property and to flee into the mountains! They are warned not to go to their house to take anything with them! Not even their clothes! They are warned to flee immediately! I hope that they can heed this warning! I think that it would not be so easy to do. If any one of us saw impending disaster coming, our first instinct would be to save what we could. And to take what we need to survive like clothing and blankets. When Judea’s day of trouble comes, they will not have a minute to spare. Their enemies will already be in their doorway!

Matthew 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

The people of Judea are instructed to flee into the mountains. The mountains are the vast desolate mountainous region east of Jerusalem all the way into western Jordan.

Ancient history also gives us a window into the future scene of the day of Judea’s flight. This historical record of Antiochus Epiphanes’ attack of Jerusalem will once again be repeated on the day when Judea flees to the mountains. Notice that his soldiers were instructed to kill anybody hiding in their houses.

2 Maccabees 5:11–14 When these happenings were reported to the king, he thought that Judea was in revolt. Raging like a wild animal, he set out from Egypt and took Jerusalem by storm. He ordered his soldiers to cut down without mercy those whom they met and to slay those who took refuge in their houses. There was a massacre of young and old, a killing of women and children, a slaughter of virgins and infants. In the space of three days, eighty thousand were lost, forty thousand meeting a violent death, and the same number being sold into slavery.

Both the region of Judah and Jerusalem will be swarming with their enemies. If the people living around Jerusalem don’t forsake everything and immediately run for the hills then they will be captured and killed or taken as a slave to do hard labor in foreign countries (Zechariah 14:2).

Zechariah 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

In the city of Jerusalem half of its residents will be taken as slaves. Anyone trying to escape will be caught and killed (Isa 30:16). A few Jews will remain inside of the city to suffer horribly.

Zechariah 14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

When the Antichrist defiles the temple in Jerusalem it will be the sign that Judea should flee! When Judea’s day of trouble comes, they will not have a minute to spare. Their enemies will be hunting them door to door in their homes!

Very interesting to read and hard to stop. – Alexandria

EZEKIEL 38:5 IS BEING FULFILLED IN SYRIA!

By Craig C. White

Ezekiel 38:5 lists three nations that Turkey will lead in an invasion into Israel. They are Iran, Sudan, and Libya.

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

Right now these nations are beginning to gather on the Golan Heights of Syria. Fighting against Israel has already begun. I think that after Turkey invades Syria and besieges its capital city of Damascus that Turkey will lead these nations into the Golan Heights of Israel!

Hamah and Tell Rifaat will hear reports about a coming invasion.

Share

Hamah and Tell Rifaat (Arpad)

…will hear reports about a coming invasion.

By Craig C. White

The Prophet Jeremiah gives us a prediction about the destruction of Damascus, Syria. Along with Damascus, Jeremiah also mentions two other Syrian cities. They are Hamath and Arpad (or modern day Tell Rifaat). Turkey is targeting both of these areas today! The Syrian Army has just taken control over more territory north of Hamah. The Kurds have recently taken control over Tell Rifaat north of Aleppo. Turkey is against both of them. Turkey has just cleared Kurdish forces from the Syrian border from Azaz eastward to Jarablus. Now Turkey has stated that they want to attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat. If Turkey enters Syria at Hamah and Tell Rifaat then they are on their way to Damascus!

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.

In the verse above, Jeremiah mentions two cities; Hamath and Arpad. Both of these cities are located in northwestern Syria. Today Hamah is Syria’s fourth largest city with a population of around one million. Hamah is in the Hama Governorate of Syria. Hamah is south of Arpad but both cities are close to the Turkish border. Arpad is the modern day town of Tell Rifaat just to the north of Aleppo. The city of Tell Rifaat is in the Aleppo Governorate of Syria.

What Jeremiah is trying to tell us is that the two large Syrian cities of Hamah and Aleppo along with the towns north of Aleppo will hear reports of a gathering invasion from the nearby Turkish border! Hamah and Aleppo’s northern neighbors are fearful that they may be attacked.

Today Al-Qaeda rebels are assaulting Aleppo. Aleppo is Syria’s largest city. Turkey is moving more heavy arms and troops to the Syrian border near Aleppo.

Hamah and Tell Rifaat

Turkish President Erdogan wants to invade Syria. Erdogan has three goals. 1) To remove Assad from power. 2) To ensure that the Kurds don’t form a state in northern Syria. 3) To ensure that ISIS doesn’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!

Since March 2015 Turkey has been amassing enormous stockpiles of heavy weapons. These weapons were meant to be given to the Free Syrian Army fighting against Syrian President Assad. It seems that some of these weapons were also meant for the Turkish Army to use as they invade Syria.

Reports were leaked that the Free Syrian Army intended to use the weapons to attack Syria’s larger cities like Hamah and Aleppo. As a matter of fact beginning in early July 2015 the Free Syrian Army launched their biggest attack yet on Aleppo.

Note: Don’t let the name “Free Syrian Army” fool you. The Free Syrian Army was born in Libya and consists of Al-Qaeda soldiers from Libya. You won’t find one single “Syrian” brigade among them.

The Free Syrian Army is fighting on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood and also on behalf of Turkish President Erdogan. If the Free Syrian Army is able to take over Aleppo then the Turkish Army won’t have to. But there is a problem. While Al-Qaeda from Libya (aka the Free Syrian Army) is attempting to overthrow Aleppo, ISIS and the Kurds have succeeded in gaining control of several towns just to the north of Aleppo. This is a problem for Turkish President Erdogan in two ways. First he doesn’t want ISIS or the Kurds to create their own State in Syria because Erdogan knows that whoever controls Syria also controls the new Islamic Caliphate. The other problem is that ISIS and the Kurds are taking control of the region between Turkey and Syria’s larger cities. They have cut off the supply route between Turkey and the Free Syrian Army fighting against Aleppo. They are also blocking the route for a Turkish attack on Hamah, Aleppo, and most importantly Damascus!

Jeremiah identifies the town of Arpad (or modern day Tell Rifaat) located just to the north of Aleppo. Now that the Kurds have taken control of Tell Rifaat and several other towns to the north of Aleppo, the Turkish Army will be forced to engage them there before they can support or supply the Free Syrian Army in their fight against Aleppo. The Turkish Army will also be forced to deal with ISIS camped north of Aleppo before they can continue southwards towards Damascus. The presence of ISIS and the Kurds in the region north of Aleppo practically guarantees that the Turkish Army will have to enter Syria.

Turkey now has a stockpile of weapons and Turkish President Erdogan wants to invade Syria. Erdogan said that when he invades Syria he won’t do it halfway. The ultimate goal is to remove Syrian President Assad from power in Damascus. Hamah and Tell Rifaat will hear reports of an invasion. These cities are along the path of an invasion launched from Turkey headed towards Damascus.

Jeremiah 49:24-25 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!

According to Jeremiah the two Syrian cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat will hear reports about a coming invasion. The inhabitants of Damascus will flee the city, and then Damascus will be destroyed.

EXTRA EXTRA Sept 24, 2016: The Turkish Army along with Turkey supported Al-Qaeda rebels have already cleared Kurdish fighters from the area between Azaz and Jarablus in Syria. The town of Azaz is located just to the north of Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria. A couple of months ago Kurdish forces gained control over Tell Rifaat. Turkey’s next stated targets are Hamah and Tell Rifaat. These are the same two cities that Jeremiah 49:23 identifies. The modern day town of Tell Rifaat is ancient Arpad.

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.

Since the Kurds are also viewed as enemies of the Syrian state; Turkey has now gained Russia’s approval to enter Syria specifically at Hamah and Tell Rifaat. We are on the threshold of Jeremiah’s prophecy. According to Jeremiah shortly after the Turkish Army enters Syria in force at Hamah and Tell Rifaat the residents of Damascus will flee the city and Damascus will be destroyed.

Verse by verse through Jeremiah 49:23-27

The nations are disquieted over Syria

Verse by verse through Jeremiah 49:23-27

By Craig C. White

The prophet Jeremiah asks the question “How is Damascus not there?” Damascus is the oldest continually inhabited city in the world. One day it will no longer exist.

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 about one million. Hamah is further south than Arpad but both are close to the Turkish border. Arpad is modern day town of Tell Rifaat 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 will hear 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. Today there is a world wide effort to overthrow 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 health 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. 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 the Syrian National Defense Force 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 that every Syrian soldier will die defending Damascus. 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 to 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 Syria’s seat of government in the neighborhood of Old Damascus.

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.
