Watch watch watch Jesus is coming!

Watch watch watch

Jesus is coming!

By Craig C. White

Whether you think that Russia is identified as Gog and Magog in Ezekiel chapter 38 or perhaps you have rightly identified Turkey as being Gog and Magog; every nation that is listed in Ezekiel chapter 38 is fighting in Syria today. So all of us ought to be on our toes as we watch events unfold in Syria. On that we can agree. We are all in this together!

Ezekiel chapter 38 describes Turkey as they lead Iran, Libya, and Sudan into Israel. All of these nations are fighting in Syria today. Jeremiah 49:23-27 describes an attack on the cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria and then the destruction of Damascus. The Turkish Army is fighting its way towards Tell Rifaat now. So it is evident that Turkey will destroy Damascus. Damascus is only thirty miles from the Golan Heights of Israel. So after Turkey destroys Damascus then they will most likely lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into the Golan Heights.

We are now watching the Turkish Army fighting near Hamah and Tell Rifaat as Jeremiah 49:23 says. We can watch as they near Damascus. From there we can observe if they turn south towards Israel. If they get that far then we know that Ezekiel chapter 38 tells us that God will fight against them with fire and brimstone, earthquakes, and torrential rain. Nahum 1:3-8 describes a similar scenario. Nahum makes it more clear that this is the Lord coming in a whirlwind to the Golan Heights. Nahum also says that the Lord knows and protects those people who trust in him. It is a distinct possibility that Jesus will return to take away his Church when the Turkish led forces enter the Golan Heights of northern Israel. So watch!

While we are watching, watch my video!

Woe to the Idol Shepherd

Rotten, good for nothing, worthless shepherd

Zechariah 11:16-17

By Craig C. White

What is an Idol Shepherd? Well a shepherd is someone who tends to a flock. A shepherd can also tend people. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has proven that he is a faithful and strong shepherd. Thank God for him. He is diligent to serve his land and people. He is conscientious to beware of Israel’s enemies. He is attentive to the safety and welfare of the Israeli people. Today Israel is blessed with an upright shepherd.

An Idol Shepherd is a leader who does not care for his people. One day God will raise up a wicked leader in Israel who will hand over his people for profit. Don’t think that I am talking about the Antichrist. I am not. I am talking about a Jewish Israeli leader who will be in office during the great tribulation.

Zec 11:16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.

God himself will raise this shepherd to serve his purpose of judging Israel during the final seven years of indignation spoken of by the prophet Daniel (Dan 9:24). The wicked shepherd will not care for the children who wander the streets having lost their parents. He will not help those whose lives have been broken. The phrase nor feed that that standeth still means he will not support those who are standing for what is right. The shepherd will not do what is right. He will do the opposite. He will greedily consume the wealth of Israel for himself. He will tear apart all those who reach out for help.

Zec 11:17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

God decrees misfortune upon the Idol Shepherd. The word leaveth means to forsake. The Idol Shepherd forsakes the administration of the health, safety, security and welfare of the Israeli people. God calls him the idol shepherd. Today we would literally say “rotten, good for nothing, worthless shepherd”. In the phrase the sword shall be upon his arm the word sword refers to a drought, also a cutting instrument. The word arm refers to the arm (as stretched out), it signifies force, mighty power, and strength. This verse is declaring God’s judgment upon the unfaithful leader of Israel. This could be applied to his personal judgment or possibly judgment to Israel under his tending. This could mean that the Israeli military will be cut. The idol shepherd will be powerless against Israel’s enemies. The sword will also be upon his right eye. The word right refers to your strong side. The word eye refers to sight. This may mean that his vision to do right will be darkened. Because of the context I think this may mean that a strong leader (the shepherd’s right hand man) will be cut off. Let me suggest that a wicked Israeli president may get rid of his Prime Minister who sees the needs of the people. Of course there may be a different meaning.

Zechariah further describes the condition of the arm and the eye. The phrase his arm shall be clean dried up again probably means that the Israeli military will be ashamed, confused, confounded, dried up, and withered away to nothing. The phrase his right eye shall be utterly darkened may mean that the shepherd is completely blind to what is right, or that the shepherd’s decent right hand man is completely restrained.

The idol shepherd is spoken of throughout Zechariah chapters 10 & 11, and recapped in Zechariah 13:7.

Zec 11:5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.

During “the Great Tribulation” the Israeli people will be bought and sold as slaves.

Amos 8:6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?

Joel 3:3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.

Joel 3:6 The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.

Those who own them will kill them. The slave merchants will say, “Blessed be the Hebrew God because I have become rich selling the Israeli people; and their own leaders don’t care about them”.

Zec 13:7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

Many prophetic bible verses signify two distinct events, usually separated by time. This is one of them. Here the phrase My fellow tells us that the idol shepherd is a Hebrew. God smites the idol shepherd and the Israeli people are dispersed out of their land.

In another meaning, this verse also tells us that the shepherd is God’s companion. That is “another of the same kind”. In this application my shepherd and my fellow refer to Jesus Christ. The word man here means valiant man. Zechariah is prophesying the death of Christ and the scattering of his disciples.

We all wonder how the world is going to impose their “peace plan” on Israel. It seems that Israel will not relent to their un-survivable terms. Well, there is an Israeli leader coming who will not look out for the welfare of his land or his people.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli President Shimon Peres are faithful shepherds. Both men hold the deepest love for their country. There is a growing global movement to replace the Israeli leaders. This coo extends inside the Israeli government. The opposition wants to install a vain leader who will bow to world dictate, especially concerning creating a Palestinian State inside of Israel. Opposition Leader Ms. Tzipi Livni has rudely blasphemed Netanyahu. She is leading protests against his leadership and is calling for his replacement. The world is greedily clamoring for Israel’s rotten shepherd. All signs point to a soon coming of Jesus Christ to gather his church.

The idol shepherd is a Jewish Israeli leader.

Easy as 1, 2, Tribulation!

Easy as 1, 2, Tribulation!

Damascus, Golan Heights, Peace treaty

By Craig C. White

Three events stand between us and the beginning of the Tribulation period.

1) First Turkey will invade Syria near Hamah and Tell-Rifaat (or Arpad as described in Jeremiah 49:23-17). Then the Turkish army will march southward to destroy Damascus.

2) Second Turkey will lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into the Golan Heights of Israel. This invasion will not go well. God will fight against them with a tremendous earthquake, torrential rain, disease, and infighting. This Turkish led invasion into Israel is known as the battle of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel chapter 38. Gog is Turkey Magog is its ruler.

3) Third an international peace treaty will be made concerning Turkey and Israel. It will have a seven year term and include provision for building a new Jewish temple in Jerusalem (Dan 9:27). This treaty officially begins the Tribulation period. It is a time of suffering for Israel. The Tribulation period is also a time of great wars and terrible natural disasters world wide.

I think that Jesus Christ will return to repel the Turkish led invaders when they enter the Golan Heights of Israel. I think that Jesus will also gather Church age believers at this time. Jesus Christ will return to rescue his Church from the coming chaos of the Tribulation period. So Christians will not be around to witness the signing of the seven year term peace treaty that will be made concerning Israel.

Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist. He will destroy Damascus and then invade the Golan Heights. Afterwards I think that a peace deal will be made beginning the seven year Tribulation period.

An “Extraordinary” Summit

An “Extraordinary” Summit

International peace keeping force inside of Israel

By Craig C. White

It seems that biblically significant events are now happening on a daily basis. This week Israel celebrated their seventieth year anniversary of reestablishing their homeland. The U.S. dedicated their new embassy in Jerusalem. Hamas and the Palestinians protested in Gaza by attempting to break through the border fence that separates Gaza from the rest of Israel. The Israeli Defense Force shot and killed about sixty Palestinian Hamas protesters and wounded two thousand more.

It has been reported that Hamas purposefully incited the protest with the intention that people would be killed. Hamas wants to use this incident as an excuse for further military action against Israel. Enter Turkish President Erdogan. This week Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Erdogan the biggest supporter of Hamas.

Responding to the Gaza killings Turkish President Erdogan said that, “Turkey will not allow Israel to steal Jerusalem from Palestinians”. Erdogan called for all Islamic nations to unite against Israel and vowed to take Jerusalem for Islam.

This week Turkish President Erdogan called for an “extraordinary” summit of the 57 Islamic nation member “Organization for Islamic Cooperation” (OIC). The OIC is the largest voting block in the UN. Erdogan is currently the head of the OIC. At the May 18th meeting Erdogan condemned Israel’s actions during the Gaza incident and also condemned the inauguration of the American embassy. Erdogan proposed that an international peace keeping force be placed inside of Israel.

Folks this is sounding more and more like the seven year covenant that the Antichrist will make with Israel. The Antichrist will promise peace with Israel in exchange for a new temple in Jerusalem and disarmament of Israel along with an international peace keeping force being placed inside of Israel.

Now do you believe me when I say that Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist?

Before the Great Tribulation

Before the Great Tribulation

The Antichrist will invade Egypt then Israel.

Daniel 11:40-45

By Craig C. White

There is a movement in Northern Africa and the Middle East to bring the region under an Islamist umbrella. Egypt has loosed the bands of the Muslim Brotherhood for now, but ultimately Egypt will not escape. During the first half of the seven year Tribulation period Turkey will conquer Egypt!

Antiochus Epiphanies was the king over one quarter of the Grecian Empire headquartered in Syria. Antiochus Epiphanies is a forerunner and type of the Antichrist. The Antichrist will do many of the same things that Antiochus Epiphanies did.

Ezekiel 39:1 identifies the Prime Minister (chief prince) of Turkey as the future invader of Israel. Ezekiel chapter 39 describes the battle of Armageddon led by the Antichrist. So a Turkish Prime Minister will be the Antichrist. The battle of Armageddon happens at the end of the seven year Tribulation period.

Daniel chapter 11 describes an invasion into Egypt and then into Israel that happened in 167 BC led by Antiochus Epiphanies. I think that Daniel chapter 11 also predicts a future invasion of Egypt and then Israel led by the Antichrist. This isn’t the battle of Armageddon. Instead it is the attack that begins the Great Tribulation (Mat 24:21). This invasion into Egypt and then Israel happens in the middle of the seven year Tribulation period. In Daniel 11 below, the king of the south is Egypt. The king of the north is Turkey in this future invasion into Egypt and then into Israel!

Dan 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. 41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

So Turkey will invade Egypt and even come into Israel (the glorious land). It sounds like Turkey will conquer all of Northern Africa and the Middle East except for Jordan. Edom, Moab, and Ammon all represent today’s Jordan.

Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

The Antichrist (Turkish Prime Minister) will loot Egypt of its treasures. Turkey will be joined in its conquests by Libya and Sudan.

Dan 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

Remember that this account refers to two separate invasions of Egypt and then Israel. In 167 BC Antiochus Epiphanies heard news of a Jewish effort to take control of the temple in Jerusalem. He then invaded Israel to stop it. Turkey will invade Egypt in the future led by the Antichrist. He will probably also hear news from Jerusalem concerning the newly built temple.

Here is a historical account of Antiochus Epiphanies’ attack on Israel in 167 BC. The Turkish Antichrist will attack Israel in much the same way.

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.

Dan 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

The seas described in this verse are typically thought to be the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea. Jerusalem is between the two seas. The glorious holy mountain is thought to be Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. But please allow me to point out that Turkish President Erdogan has already built his massive palace on top of one of Turkey’s holy mountains in Turkey’s capital city of Ankara. Erdogan’s palace is located between the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, and the Caspian Sea.

In 167 BC Antiochus Epiphanies took-over the temple in Jerusalem and declared that he should be worshiped as god. In the future the Antichrist will take-over the temple in Jerusalem and declare that he should be worshiped there. This verse reflects the desecration of the temple spoken of in Dan 12:11 and referenced in Mat 24:15-16. When the Jews around Jerusalem see the Antichrist claiming to be god in the temple at Jerusalem then they are instructed to flee to the hills of Jordan!

In the middle of the Tribulation the Antichrist will attack Israel. This begins Jerusalem’s Great Tribulation (Mat 24:21)! Just before his armies invade Israel they will invade Egypt and carry away their treasures. So when Israel sees Turkey invade Egypt they will have an advanced warning that they will be attacked next!

Today Egypt has seemingly avoided a Muslim Brotherhood takeover but in the end the entire Middle East and northern Africa will be under the control of the Antichrist.

PS: Daniel chapter 11 doesn’t describe the other Turkish led invasion into Israel that is described in Ezekiel chapter 38. Turkey will first invade Syria and destroy Damascus. Then Turkey will lead Iran, Sudan, and Libya into Israel. All of these forces are fighting in Syria today! I think that this invasion could begin in 2017!
