Flee! Erdogan is coming!

By Craig C. White

Do you remember when Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar invaded Jerusalem and destroyed the temple? He also took away Jewish captives. Do you remember when Grecian King Antiochus Epiphanes invaded Jerusalem and took one half of the people away? In both instances many Jews were killed. Well there is another invader on his way to Jerusalem. He is Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. President Erdogan is the Antichrist. He will be worse than any other invader before him.

Erdogan will attack Jerusalem and Judea. His army will break into your homes. He will take one half of the people captive. He will kill anybody trying to leave Jerusalem. If you are caught inside of Jerusalem when Erdogan arrives then the only way to escape is to wait on Mt. Zion. The Bible warns the inhabitants of Judea to watch for this invasion and to flee to Moab of Jordan. Today we can see this invasion approaching.

Allow me to tell you what to watch for. Turkey will enter Syria from its northwestern border near Hamah. The Turkish army will fight against the Syrian National Guard and the Syrian Army in Damascus. Turkey will besiege Damascus until the last Syrian soldier is killed. The old city of Damascus will be left in ruins. Its inhabitants will flee to Kerak in Jordan. They will become refugees there.

Note: ISIS in Mosul may be flooded before Erdogan attacks Damascus. These things are likely to happen this year (2016).

From Damascus Erdogan will lead Al-Qaeda from Libya, Hezbollah from Iran, and Hezbollah trained rebels from Sudan into northern Israel. All of these armies are fighting in Syria today! God will fight against these armies with a tremendous rainstorm, debilitating disease, and infighting. Perhaps after this invasion a seven year peace treaty will be signed between Erdogan and Israel. Erdogan will break this treaty in the middle of its term. This isn’t the invasion that I am warning you about. This invasion takes place about three and one half years before the invasion into Jerusalem.

After Damascus is overthrown Erdogan will install new Muslim Brotherhood leadership in Syria. Once that is accomplished Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran will form a confederacy along with four other nations or terrorist groups. This confederacy or Union will be represented by a leopard. This new Islamic Union will wage war on the rest of the Middle East, central Asia, and northern Africa. In northern Africa Al-Qaeda from Libya and Hezbollah trained fighters from Sudan will join the Turkish army. These will be the deadliest wars in history with about 400,000,000 killed. At first only Israel and Jordan will be spared. But then Erdogan will come away from conquering northern Africa including Egypt and enter into Jerusalem. The Bible compares the coming Antichrist to Antiochus Epiphanes. Antiochus Epiphanes attacked Egypt more than once. Erdogan may also enter Egypt on more than one occasion. So don’t let your guard down if Erdogan doesn’t attack Jerusalem after his first visit into Egypt.

Attention inhabitants of Judea! This verse was written to YOU!

Mat 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

All inhabitants of Judea please listen! You must watch.

Mat 24:15-18 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:) 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.

You must flee to the Jordanian mountains when you see this invasion approaching. You will be taken care of in Jordan just like so many Syrian refugees are being cared for today. You will remain there for three and one half years. At the end Jordan, Lebanon, and northern Iraq will send armies to destroy you but your Messiah will return to fight against them.

When Erdogan invades Jerusalem it is the beginning of three and one half years of terrible persecution. At the end of this three and one half year time period the Messiah of Israel will return! After your Messiah rescues the Judean refugees in Jordan then he will deliver the few remaining Jews in Jerusalem.

Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

This is the time of Jacob’s trouble.

Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

Turkish President Erdogan will come from invading northern Africa when he enters Jerusalem. The Judean residents are instructed to flee to the Jordanian wilderness. Anybody left in Jerusalem must remain on Mount Zion if they want to escape their enemies. Jerusalem, Judea, and all of Israel will suffer for three and one half years but at the end Jesus Christ will rescue them.

Very interesting to read and hard to stop. – Alexandria

The Rapture Day!

The Rapture Day!

As the last note of the trumpet is played we will be changed!

1Co 15:51-52, 1Th 4:15-17

By Craig C. White

Definitions are from Strong’s Hebrew and Greek dictionaries.

The Rapture is a term used to describe the bodily resurrection and taking away into heaven of Church age believers. What hope do we have that we will be resurrected? Because Jesus rose bodily from the grave we have confidence that one day we will rise likewise! That is incredible news. But wait, it gets even better! Not every person who lives will die! Christians who are alive at the time of Jesus’ return will not suffer death but will be instantly transformed into a perfect undying body then taken up into heaven. That event is called the Rapture!

1Co 15:51-52 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

In the Rapture we shall be changed in an instant, but not without warning. We will all enjoy a long trumpet call before we are changed, kind of like waking up with a bugle call at boot camp. The whole world will hear the noise and take notice. The bugle call will continue while an astonishing event occurs. Millions of dead people will stand up out of their graves; alive! Wow, that will certainly get a lot of attention. The Rapture will not be a quiet affair. Our bodies won’t be changed until the trumpet call is finished so please don’t worry if you are driving. You will have plenty of time to pull over. The second part of the verse above puts the Rapture in chronological order. 1) We will all hear a long loud trumpet call. 2) As the trumpet plays, the dead will rise (these are people you know, and folks who have trusted Jesus since his resurrection). 3) As the last note of the trumpet is played we will be changed!

There is even more said about the Rapture in 1 Thessalonians. We will not be caught up with Jesus in the air until the dead are raised alive. In the verse below “prevent” means to come beforehand. So the living will not meet Jesus until the dead are raised. All church age believers must be present and accounted for before we are taken up together in the Rapture.

1Th 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

The Rapture continues in the verse below. Jesus will come down into the sky. Michael the Archangel will yell for all believers to prepare themselves. At the same time there will also be the long trumpet call. The trumpet call will be the announcement that it is time for the church to meet Jesus in the air! The dead in Christ will rise out of the grave first; then we will all meet Jesus together.

1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

During the Rapture, people who were previously dead, will be together with people who have never been dead (I hope that is me). they will all be taken up into the air to meet Jesus. Now that is a church bus!

1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The words caught up in the verse above is the Greek word harpazo (har-pad’-zo). Harpazo means to seize, or catch (away, up), pluck, pull, take (by force). Harpazo is the word that we get our English word rapture from. As you can see from the definition of Harpazo it means to be taken by force. So we won’t be floating weightlessly into the sky while defying gravity. We will be lifted by some strong force. May I suggest that we will be taken to heaven the same way that every other person in a human body has been taken? In storm cloud, and cyclone, and chariots of fire!!!

2Ki 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

Here is what an eyewitness had to say about the rapture of the prophet Elijah!

2Ki 2:12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.

In the Rapture we will be changed instantly, but not at first. We will be taken, but not until all have been raised. We will be taken by force, and not without fanfare. The rapture is an event that will take some time and gain the world’s attention.

Lord, bring peace to Jerusalem; and even so, come Lord Jesus. Amen.

Jesus will fight on the Golan Heights!

By Craig C. White

It’s 2019 and my Timelines are getting more accurate! I’ve been telling you about these end time events for the past seven years and now we can see them happening. Turkey is ready to attack Hamah just like Jeremiah said. So it’s High Time to start paying attention!

Jeremiah 49:23 mentions two northwestern Syria cities that will hear evil reports just before Damascus is destroyed. Those two cities are Hamah and Arpad. Today Arpad is called Tell-Rifaat.

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.

2019 Bible Prophecy Timeline

How close is this invasion? Look at my map. The Turkish Army is amassed near both of these cities right now. The Syrian Army is in Hamah and is already fighting against Al-Qaeda in Idlib. The Turkish Army has strengthened its positions inside of Idlib province. The Turkish led attack on Hamah could happen before 2019 even begins. Turkish President Erdogan has vowed to remove Syrian President Assad from power in Damascus. Why is the attack on Hamah important? Because according to Jeremiah 49:23-27, the destruction of Damascus begins in Hamah.

The next thing that will happen is that the Turkish Army will lead the Al-Qaeda rebel groups that are gathered in Idlib against the Syrian Army in Hamah and Tell-Rifaat. Turkey will then march southward to destroy Damascus. Afterwards Turkey will lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into the Golan Heights of northern Israel (Ezekiel 38). Jesus Christ will return to the Golan Heights in a fiery whirlwind to turn them back! Jesus will also raise the dead and collect his Church at that time.

Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist. No kidding. Erdogan is the “chief prince” or primary governor among the provinces of Turkey mentioned in Ezekiel 38. Erdogan will lead the Islamic nations into northern Israel.

The nearer that Turkey gets to Israel, the nearer that Jesus will get to Israel. Jesus will return to turn back the Turkish led invaders when they enter the Golan Heights. Jesus will also raise the dead. So anticipate the Resurrection! Afterwards I think that an international peace accord will be made concerning Israel which marks the beginning of the 7 year Tribulation period.

Jesus will fight on the Golan Heights! Nahum 2:5-6 predicts one last ISIS uprising in Mosul and also predicts the flooding of Mosul. Mosul is ancient Nineveh. Nahum also describes Jesus as he comes to the Golan Heights in a fiery whirlwind. Ezekiel chapter 38 describes a Turkish led invasion into northern Israel. I suspect that Jesus will first fight against the Turkish led forces on the Golan Heights and then judge Mosul with a flood of water.

The Resurrection may happen forty days before the Rapture! Most Christians think that the Rapture will happen in the twinkling of an eye but the Bible says that we will be changed in the twinkling of an eye. The resurrection of the dead must happen before we are changed. How long will that take? Jesus ascended forty days after his resurrection. The Prophet Jonah gave Nineveh forty days to repent. Nineveh is called Mosul today. Mosul is the hometown of ISIS. The Prophet Nahum connects the flooding of Mosul with the return of Christ. I think that Jesus will raise the dead while fighting the Turkish led invaders on the Golan Heights and then take believers away into heaven forty days later when he destroys Mosul with a flood of water. Just like Jonah gave Nineveh forty days to repent, Jesus will give ISIS in Mosul forty days to repent (but they won’t). This is the sign of Jonah. It is the one end time sign to Israel that Jesus truly is their Messiah. He has the power to raise the dead!

Erdogan is honoring the God of forces in his palace!

Erdogan is honoring the God of forces in his palace!

The Antichrist is a gentile

Daniel 11:38

By Craig C. White

There is a widely held thought that the Bible teaches that the Antichrist will be Jewish. I do not agree at all. The Antichrist will be the ruler of the next world empire. Just like the ruler of every past world empire; he will be from a gentile nation.

Some say that the Antichrist must be Jewish because only a Jew could get the nation of Israel to follow him as their new messiah. They get that idea by assuming that the term “anti-Christ” means a counterfeit messiah. That is not the meaning that the Bible portrays. The prefix “anti” means against. The Antichrist will stand against the God of Israel. The Antichrist will not come as an imitation Jewish messiah but he will come as the oppressive ruler of the next world empire. Like most rulers of past world empires he will also claim that he is god.

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.

Folks that say that the Antichrist will be Jewish use the following verses to support their view. They say that the phrase “the God of his fathers” refers to the God of Israel. If you ask me, that argument is hardly conclusive. First of all every nation has its own God or Gods. So the God of his fathers could describe a person from any nation. Second, the word translated as God in English is actually the plural form in Hebrew. So the following verse may be better translated as “the gods of his fathers”. That would definitely exclude Israel since they have only one God.

Daniel 11:37-38 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

Now let’s look at what else these verses say. In verse 38 it says that in his estate the Antichrist will honor the God of forces. The word translated as “estate“ can mean a base or place of operation.

*Estate: used as a noun; a stand, that is, pedestal or station: – base, estate, foot, office, place, well.
The word translated as forces refers to military power.

*Forces; a fortified place; figuratively a defence: – force, fort (-ress), rock, strength (-en), (X most) strong (hold).

Reading the rest of Dan 11:38 we see that the Antichrist will honor the God of military power with gold and silver and other luxurious things. Where will the Antichrist display all of this wealth as he attempts to honor his god? The Antichrist may in fact honor the God of military power in his base of operation. Where do the rulers of world empires operate? They operate out of palaces.

Let me tell you a true story that is happening right now. Newly elected Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has built a new 1,000 room, 3.1 million square foot palace for himself that cost the Turkish government $615 million dollars! President Erdogan’s new palace is the most expensive palace in the world today! It is a palace worthy of biblical mention.

As you might expect Turkish citizens as well as Turkish leaders have protested the costliness of Erdogan’s new palace. Erdogan responded by saying, “No one can prevent the completion of this building. If they are powerful enough, let them come and demolish it.”

The palace is known as the “White Palace” and sits upon a hilltop overlooking Turkey’s capital city of Ankara. The White Palace is bigger than the Whitehouse. It is bigger than the Kremlin. It is bigger than the palace of Versailles. This is where President Erdogan now lives. Inside his new home President Erdogan often has Turkish soldiers dress in the period correct armor of Ottoman Empire era military. He isn’t honoring his Islamic religion but instead Turkish President Erdogan is honoring the world conquest of the old Ottoman Empire!

In February 2015 Erdogan announced that he will rename the “White Palace” as the “Presidential Kulliye”. A kulliye is the name of the grounds surrounding a mosque. These grounds typically house support services for the mosque such as kitchens and guest quarters. The new name gives the presidential home religious significance. President Erdogan says that the palace symbolizes a resurgent Turkey. What he means to say is, “The palace is the headquarters of a revived Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire”. He has already publicly declared his intentions to create a new Turkish led Islamic Union.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan describes himself as a moderate Muslim while he ardently proclaims himself to be a Turk. He served as Prime Minister from 2003 to 2014. He was elected as President of Turkey in December 2014. Inside his base of operation he doesn’t honor the gods of his fathers but instead he honors the armies of his countries past. He honors the Turkish conquest of the world. I hope that by now you have guessed that I think that Turkish President Erdogan is the top candidate to be the ruler of the next world empire.

The Bible tells us that the man we call the Antichrist will be from a gentile nation.

Throughout Bible prophecy a beast represents a gentile ruled government that is rebellious towards the God of Israel. Gentile simply means nation. A beast is often described as coming out of the sea. The sea represents the gentile nations of the world. These are primarily the nations of the ancient world. In Revelation 13:1 below a beast rises out of the sea. Daniel 7:3 also describes the final gentile world empire as coming out of the sea.

Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Beasts in the Bible usually describe world empires that are ruled over by gentile nations. There have been seven world empires throughout world history. They are in order; the Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Persian, Grecian, Roman, and Turkish Ottoman Empire. There will be one more world empire ruled by the gentile nations. Every ruler of every world empire was a gentile from out of these ancient nations. Not one ruler was Jewish. The ruler of the next world empire that we call the Antichrist will be a gentile out of a gentile nation. The Antichrist will be a gentile. The Antichrist will not be Jewish.

Turkish President Erdogan is poised to attack Damascus and then to invade Israel. These are things that the Bible tells us that the Antichrist will do! Must I say it again? It is High Time to Awake!

Turkish troops are amassed near Hamah and Tell Rifaat

Turkish troops are amassed near Hamah and Tell Rifaat

We are on the cusp of Jeremiah 49:23

By Craig C. White

This week we are at the very edge of unfolding Bible prophecy. Jeremiah tells us that Hamah and Arpad in northwestern Syria will be attacked and then Damascus will be destroyed. The city of Arpad is called Tell Rifaat today.

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.

We are so close to these events that this week Turkish President Erdogan announced that Tell Rifaat is the next city that the Turkish Army plans to attack. There have also been rumors that the Turkish Army has already conquered Tell Rifaat, and further denials by the Turkish government saying that they had not yet entered the city. We have also heard that Syrian supported Iranian militia have left Tell Rifaat in front of the pending Turkish attack. Now we are hearing that Syrian forces have entered Tell Rifaat. So apparently Turkey has not yet begun their assault on Tell Rifaat.

We are hearing evil reports about Tell Rifaat but let’s not forget about Hamah. The Syrian Army controls Hamah. The Syrian Army in the Hamah province is fighting against the Al-Qaeda rebel forces in the adjacent Idlib province. This week the Turkish Army has continued to bring troops into Idlib. Also this week more Al-Qaeda rebel forces have been bused into Idlib from the Ghouta neighborhood of northeastern Damascus. The Al-Qaeda rebels in Ghouta were the last outpost of rebel activity near Damascus. Lately the Al-Qaeda rebels in Ghouta have been shelling downtown Damascus. The Syrian Army finally drove them out this week.

The final analysis is that Turkish and Al-Qaeda troops are amassed near Hamah and Tell Rifaat.

Expect to hear reports about a Turkish led assault on Syrian forces in Hamah in conjunction with reports about the Turkish attack on Tell Rifaat. Turkish and Al-Qaeda forces have been amassing in the Idlib province near Hamah.

Turkish troops are amassed near Hamah and Tell Rifaat

In Bible history Hamah and Tell Rifaat were regional and religious capitals of ancient Syria. These towns worshiped separate false deities. Today these two towns are controlled by different people. Hamah is controlled by the Syrian government and Tell Rifaat is controlled by the Kurds. In the Bible Hamah and Tell Rifaat represent northwestern Syria as a whole. In the following verses the ancient Assyrians are recounting their victories over Hamah and Tell Rifaat in 734 BC: 2Kgs 18:34; Isa 36:19, 2Kgs 19:13; Isa 37:13.

2Kings 18:34 Where are the gods of Hamath, and of Arpad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah? have they delivered Samaria out of mine hand?

In the previous verse the Assyrians are intimidating the Jews in southern Israel by reminding them that the Gods of northwestern Syria could not deliver Hamah and Arpad out of the hands of the Assyrian Army. Neither could the God of northern Israel deliver them. Assyria conquered Syria and invaded northern Israel in 734 BC.

If you are smart then by now you should be asking yourself, “Couldn’t Jeremiah 49:23 pertain to the Assyrian conquest of Syria and of northern Israel in 734 BC?”. Wow that is a very astute question. Yes Jeremiah could pertain to 734 BC but it doesn’t because Jeremiah gave his prophecy one hundred years after the Assyrians conquered Syria and northern Israel. So Jeremiah’s prophecy applies to a future event. We should realize however that the 734 BC Assyrian conquest of Syria and of northern Israel is a model for what is just about to happen in Syria today! Turkey will attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria and then destroy Damascus. After that Turkey will invade northern Israel!
