612 BC all over again in Mosul

By Craig C. White

Iraq, Iran, and the Kurds are closing in on Mosul just like they did in 612 BC when God sent a torrential rain to flood the Assyrian capital city of NIneveh. When the Babylonians, Persians, and Mades saw that NIneveh was in peril they attacked the city and plundered it for two months until nothing was left. Today Mosul is built around the ruins of ancient NIneveh. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS.

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 plundering of NIneveh. Nahum may also have predicted the flooding and plundering of Mosul. As a matter of fact the flooding of Mosul may be the one pre-Tribulation sign to Israel that Jesus is truly their God.

Our Salvation is Nearer! – my of my newest books

The prophetic events that signify the last days of the Church age.

The phrase Our Salvation is Nearer comes directly out of Romans chapter 13 verse 11.

Romans 13:11  And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

The apostle Paul assumes that we know the time, or that we understand the season. If we do understand the season then we must stir from our spiritual sleep and become alert. We must be prepared for our salvation. In this verse salvation is not our spiritual rebirth but salvation is our physical resurrection, and gathering together to meet Jesus Christ. In this way we will escape the wrath that is to come upon the earth. Salvation from wrath on earth is also explained in Romans chapter 5.

Romans 5:7-10  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.  8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  9  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.  10  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

This book is filled with reports about the prophetic world events that signify the last days of the Church age. These events are happening now. The day of the Resurrection and Rapture of Church age believers in Jesus Christ is rapidly approaching. The countdown to the Rapture shouldn’t be measured in years and years but the day of resurrection and the gathering together to meet Jesus Christ in the air should now be expected in months to perhaps a couple of years.

Welcome to the End Times

The Resurrection and Rapture, and the Tribulation are 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 the revealing of the Antichrist on earth could 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. 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.

The prophet Nahum predicts the flooding of Mosul in northern Iraq

Mosul is the hometown of ISIS.

By Craig C. White

The book of Nahum predicts the flooding of the ancient city of Nineveh. Nahum says that the place where Nineveh sits will be destroyed with a flood of water. Today the city of Mosul in northern Iraq sits in the same place. Mosul is Nineveh! Nahum may also predict the flooding of Mosul!

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 Mosul dam was built on water soluble soil called gypsum. So the foundation of the dam is dissolving. The dam was finished in the 1980’s. Since then maintenance workers have had to pump concrete into the holes. Ever since ISIS took control over the dam in 2015 the maintenance has been disrupted. The Iraqi Army retook control over the dam but the maintenance still isn’t being done. ISIS in Mosul controls the construction materials that are needed to pour the concrete. Now the gates of the dam have come off of their hinges and one of the spillways is jammed shut so that the water behind the dam cannot be drained. Right now the spring rains threaten to overfill the Mosul dam reservoir causing the Mosul dam to fail.

If the Mosul dam fails a 70 foot tall wave of water would roar over the city killing perhaps 1.5 million people. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS in northern Iraq. If the Mosul dam were to break it would mean the end of ISIS.

Listen to my verse by verse Bible study through the Old Testament book of Nahum titled The End of ISIS is near!

Peace Peace

Will Israel peace treaty mark the beginning of the Tribulation?

By Craig C. White

Just before the people of Israel entered into the land that God prepared for them God had a talk with Moses. God told Moses to tell the people how they ought to behave while they are in the land. God started by giving the people of Israel the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1). Thou shalt not serve idols, remember to keep the Sabbath, thou shalt not kill, and so on. One of the last things that God told the people is that they should not make agreements with the inhabitants of the land. The people of Israel should not make allowances for their gods. They should not make treaties with their enemies that they should live in the land with them. God said that making a treaty with their enemies would be a trap that they would be caught in. God repeated this warning for emphasize (Exodus 34:12)!

Exodus 23:32-33  Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.  33  They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.

Today Israel is feverishly working to make a treaty with the Palestinian Authority that the Palestinian people should have a place for their god and that they should live in the land with the Israelis. The peace accord aims to create a sovereign Palestinian nation inside of the land of Israel.

Israel has already made allowances for the Palestinians to share their land. About one third of the nation of Israel is occupied and controlled by the Palestinian Authority. The current peace treaty or security agreement will add further territories to Palestinian control and worse it will give all or portions of the old city of east Jerusalem over to the Palestinian Authority. Today the temple mount in east Jerusalem is under the authority of the Islamic Waqf. The Islamic Waqf is a Muslim organization that acquires property to use for charitable causes; all in the name of serving Allah. The Islamic Waqf has severely restricted the Israeli use of the temple mount.

Israel map credit: The World Fact Book www.cia.gov

Israel Map: The shaded gray areas show the Palestinian occupied areas. In the south the Negev is a harsh desert and mountainous region. The Negev accounts for almost half of the land mass of the nation of Israel. It has a population of only 200,000.

The land of Israel today does not include the entire portion of land that God gave to Abraham. God gave Israel all of the land from the Nile River to the Euphrates River.

Genesis 15:18  In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

At the same time that God told Moses not to make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land; God also restricted the geographic area that the Jewish people should first inhabit. The modern day borders of Israel represent that geographic area.

Exodus 23:30-31  By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.  31  And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee.

Israel is no ordinary nation. Likewise the Israeli-Palestinian peace process is no ordinary peace treaty. As you would imagine there are arbiters on both the Israeli and Palestinian sides. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas have the final say in negotiations. Netanyahu has expressed his support for the creation of a Palestinian state but has voiced concerns about insuring the safety of the Jewish people. Netanyahu has appointed veteran lawyer Isaac Molho as his chief negotiator. Another key figure in the negotiations is Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni. Ms. Livni has been a harsh critic of Netanyahu. She is a staunch proponent for creating a Palestinian state in Israel. The exceptional part of these negotiations is that they include international security provisions. In other words Israel will have to agree to rely on US, UN, and perhaps other international military forces to ensure peace in the dual state. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is smack dab in the middle of it all. There seems always to be encumbrances to these negotiations but all parties involved are pushing for a deal within the next two years.

Zechariah 11:16 tells us that God will raise up a rotten ruler in Israel who will not look out for the best interest of his people. He is called the idol shepherd. I think that he will be instrumental in allowing Israel to fall into this trap. Indeed Ezekiel 34:2-8 identifies Israel as having many idol shepherds. Perhaps some of these negotiators are among Israel’s idol shepherds or perhaps we are still looking for Israel’s Idol Shepherd to appear since some of Israel’s leaders still demonstrate concern for their nation. Please read my commentary titled “Woe to the Idol Shepherd” in my book “Israel’s Beacon of Hope”.

At any rate peace and security for Israel is the cry of the day. The problem is that the Bible says that when the rulers of Israel say “peace and security” that is when they are all in big trouble.

1Thessalonians below was written to the church at Thessalonica. So it was written to Christians both Jew and gentile. While it certainly concerns the Jews it was not addressed directly to the nation of Israel. My point is that it is addressed to Christians today.

1Thessalonians 5:1-9  But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.  2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.  3  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  4  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.  5  Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.  6  Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.  7  For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.  8  But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.  9  For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

The verses above say that Israel will be surprised when the day of God’s judgment comes. They will expect peace but will receive persecution. In fact during the same time that God judges Israel he will also judge the entire world. So the unbelieving world will also be caught unaware of the coming disaster.

Isaiah 28:22  Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.

1 Thessalonians chapter 5 goes on to say that believers in Jesus Christ will not be surprised but that they will see the disaster coming. Verse 9 states that Christians will not suffer God’s judgment but that they will be saved from it. This brings up the concept of the Rapture of the Church. I only want to say that the Rapture (or the taking away into heaven) of Christians may happen before Israel signs their peace treaty. But there is more to consider.

The Antichrist is a political ruler who will become the head of a coming world empire. I think that he will engage in several military conquests; even invading Israel, and that at some point he will make a peace agreement with Israel. In Daniel 9:27 below, the Antichrist will make a peace treaty with the many for seven years. This marks the seven year Tribulation period of Israel. The many may refer to the majority of citizens of Israel or it may refer to many nations. In either case the agreement obviously concerns Israel. At some point Israel has resumed offering daily animal sacrifice. That means that at some point they have built a new temple. After three and a half years the Antichrist causes the sacrifices to stop. The Antichrist makes the temple to become unclean until the suffering of the nation of Israel ends. This last three and a half year period is called Jerusalem’s “Great Tribulation” (Mat 24:21).

Daniel 9:27  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Why am I telling you this? I am pointing out that Israel is working on a peace treaty with the Palestinians which also involves world powers. Plus the Antichrist will one day make a treaty with Israel. Are they the same treaty? I don’t know. I am going to give you the short answer. I think that Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is the Antichrist (read my commentary titled “Erdogan is the Antichrist!” in my book “Turkey Invades Israel – Halfway to Armageddon”). If Erdogan or somebody else that meets the criteria of the Antichrist is not involved in the signing of Israel’s Palestinian peace treaty then it does not mark the beginning of the Tribulation period. It is important to remember that the treaty that marks the beginning of the Tribulation requires the participation of the Antichrist. It becomes more urgent since Israel may indeed enter into a peace agreement within the next couple of years. Perhaps Israel will sign a separate peace agreement with the Palestinians. Perhaps the hostilities of the Antichrist will finally push an international security agreement to be finalized in Israel. Perhaps the Church will be taken away before any treaty is signed. Whatever happens we all should know that an agreement to live with Israel’s enemies is a trap!

I expect this treaty to be signed after Turkey destroys Damascus and then leads an invasion into the Golan Heights. The Turkish army is already on the march in Syria. All of the nations that Turkey leads into Israel as identified in Ezekiel chapter 38 are now fighting in the Golan Heights of Syria.That means that Israel’s tribulation is coming soon. That means that Christians are leaving sooner.
