The destruction of Damascus, invasion into Israel, and return of Jesus are near!

By Craig C. White

Turkey has created a new “National Army” in Syria. Most of these forces are foreign Sunni Al-Qaeda fighters from Libya and Sudan but also include Sunni Al-Qaeda fighters from Syria as well as Syrian Turkmen plus a few Syrian Kurds.

Ezekiel chapter 38 describes Turkey as they lead Iran, Libya, and Sudan “and many people with them” into Israel.

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

Please notice that these nations have now formed a coalition under Turkish direction. Turkey is leading these nations and not Russia. So many Bible teachers say that Russia will lead the Ezekiel chapter 38 invasion into Israel but they are incorrect. It has been so very easy to see that these Sunni Muslim fighters have been aligned with Turkey all along. Russia has approved the formation of this new “National Army” provided that they do not fight against the Syrian Army. My question is, who else is there to fight against? This pushes the Turkish Army towards direct military conflict with the Syrian Army.

Iran is also fighting in Syria on behalf of the Assad regime. At some point we should expect Iran to also side with Turkey.

Just so that you know, Jeremiah 49:23-27 describes Turkey as they attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria and then destroy Damascus. I think that after Turkey destroys Damascus then they will lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into the Golan Heights of Israel.

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.

Right now the Turkish Army is amassed in northwestern Syria near Hamah and Tell Rifaat just like Jeremiah describes. I have been telling folks about these inevitable developments since the beginning of the Syrian war. Where are my fellow Bible teachers searching these things out?

The Ezekiel chapter 38 invasion into Israel and the Jeremiah 49:23-27 destruction of Damascus are major Bible prophecy themes. I say that they mark the last days before the seven year long Tribulation period and also the resurrection and Rapture of Christians.

The nations that are listed in Ezekiel chapter 38 have been fighting in Syria for the past seven years. Now they have united under Turkey leadership. So I ask you; where are the Christian voices warning about these obvious developments?

By the way, I think that Jesus will return to turn back the Turkish led invasion when the Turkish Army reaches the Golan Heights of Israel. You are only hearing about the near time Turkish led destruction of Damascus and invasion into northern Israel here at

This verse was written to Church age believers.

Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

There is no reason that Jesus Christ should come upon you as a thief in the night unless you neglect to watch. Unfortunately, almost nobody has awoken even after seven years of being warned.

The prophet Nahum predicts the flooding of Mosul in northern Iraq

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

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

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.

Will the mark of the beast be worldwide?

Will the mark of the beast be worldwide?

Microchips are best served with a grain of salt.

By Craig C. White

Revelation 13:16 says that during the Tribulation all people must receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads in order to buy or sell. This is called “the mark of the beast”. This beast represents the next world empire. So the mark of the beast identifies you as a faithful follower of the next world empire. This leads me to ask, “Will the next world empire really cover the entire world?” “Does the word “all” really mean all people in the entire world?” The Bible sheds light on these questions.

Revelation 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

A fanciful idea has sprung up and has also taken root in Christian circles; the idea that every person in the entire world will be faced with the decision of receiving a microchip identification implant in their right hand or in their forehead. If you accept this microchip then you are going to hell! This keeps Christians up at night. They are awaiting the announcement, “The world is instituting a mandatory microchip ID program!” The Bible does say that a mark will be worn. But it doesn’t specifically define a microchip. The Bible doesn’t specifically say that all of the world will be subject to the mark of the next world empire. I can prove it.

Bible scholars say that one of the ancient world empires will be revived during the Tribulation period. Many identify this world empire as being a revived Roman Empire (which is a mistake). Others identify this end time empire as being a revived Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire (which is correct). Either way, everybody agrees that a previous world empire will be reestablished. Now we must ask ourselves, “Did any past world empire cover the entire geographic area of the world?” The answer is absolutely not. So the next world empire cannot cover the entire geographic area of the world. Otherwise it would not be an old world empire that has been revived but it would have to be categorized as some new kind of world empire altogether. Like every past world empire I would expect that the next world empire will cover roughly the geographic area between Europe and India including northern Africa. This by and large identifies the Islamic world today.

Then who will be asked to wear the mark of the next world empire? Well it follows that the people who live in the region of the next world empire will be required to wear the identifying mark of the next world empire. Today all Muslims living in the region of the former Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire already wear the identifying mark of Islam. They all wear the “bismillah” on their right arms or on their foreheads. The bismillah is an armband or headband with the Arabic words saying “In the name of Allah” written on them. The bismillah is worn by every Islamic sect from Morocco to India. Now allow me to tell you something even more astonishing. The three Greek letters that spell “six hundred sixty six” are the same Arabic characters that spell “In the name of Allah”. It seems that the mark of Islam will be the mark of the next world empire. There are no microchips needed.

When Bible prophecy is written about world events it is typically about how these events affect Israel. So I would expect that the mark of the next world empire will also be applied in Israel. This would certainly cause hardship for Israeli Jews who honor the God of their fathers; Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Although let me point out that during talks with Turkish religious leaders regarding building a new Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, several top Israeli rabbis have already agreed that Israel and Islam serve the same God. It is conceivable that these rabbis would be willing to wear the Islamic armband for the sake of peace; the chief among these rabbis being temple activist and Israeli Parliament member Rabbi Yehuda Glick.

Turkish President Erdogan intends to unite the Islamic world under Turkish rule. Erdogan intends to recreate the Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire. Islam promises an empire that will rule the world. Many Islamic nations are already on-board with Erdogan as their promised Mahdi. Syria isn’t. That is why Turkey will conquer Syria and destroy Damascus. But I digress.

The Micro-chipping of every world citizen has become an indisputable doctrine in the Christian Church. But that is mere fantasy. The mark of the beast identifies you as a faithful follower of the next world empire. The next world empire will not include the entire world. The next world empire will cover the same geographic area of a past world empire. When it comes to microchips they are best served with a grain of salt. Oh and with guacamole of course!

Do you know what happened in 734 BC?

Do you know what happened in 734 BC?

Well it’s about to happen again.

By Craig C. White

If we understand Bible prophecy and Bible history then we should expect things to heat up along Israel’s northern border. Iran is threatening to attack Israel. The Syrian Army has tanks on the Golan Heights. Israel told Iran to leave Syria or else. Something’s got to give.

In 734 BC Israel was also having trouble with Syria. Israel asked Assyria for help fighting against Syria. After Assyria conquered Damascus then they attacked northern Israel. This is a model for end time events that are unfolding now.

So if Iran and Syria attack Israel on their northern border then that isn’t the big news. The bigger news is that Turkey will destroy Damascus in the guise of helping Israel BUT after Turkey destroys Damascus then they will lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into northern Israel.

I expect hysterics from Christians when Israel and Syria and Iran begin fighting. They will say “World War III has begun!” Nobody will understand what truly is coming. Turkey will destroy Damascus and then lead an invasion into Israel. When they do I think that Jesus Christ will return to cause them to retreat. At that time Jesus will also collect you and me. Don’t wait for your pastor to tell you about theses things. The Church age is almost over. It’s High Time to Awake!
