Three Unions will combine to form the next World Empire

Three Unions will combine to form the next World Empire

When Jesus returns he will destroy the next World Empire but the three Unions will survive for a little while.

By Craig C. White

Daniel chapter 7 is simpler than we think. Daniel describes four end time beasts or kingdoms. The first three beasts are not World Empires. They are Unions. Three Unions will combine to form the next world empire. The European Union, the new Russian Union, and a new Middle Eastern Union will combine to form the next World Empire. The next world empire is the fourth beast in Daniel chapter 7. The next world empire is being identified simply as “the beast” in Daniel 7:11 below.

Daniel 7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. 12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

When Jesus returns he will destroy the World Empire but the three Unions will continue for a little while.

Hooks into thy jaws – To lead out

Hooks into thy jaws

To lead out

Ezekiel 38:4

By Craig C. White

Ezekiel chapter 38 describes a multi nation invasion into Israel. Ezekiel says that this invasion will be led by the primary governor of Turkey. I’m going to tell you right now that this Turkish ruler is the Antichrist. In Ezekiel chapter 38 God says that he will “put hooks into the jaws” of the invading armies to turn them back. Most people read these verses and conclude that God will use some political event to draw these armies into Israel. Bible students wring their hands as they try to guess what the “hook” might be. I think that we might not understand what Ezekiel is telling us.

Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

Notice that there are three separate declarations made at the beginning of this verse. 1. And I will turn thee back. 2. And put hooks into thy jaws. 3. And I will bring thee forth. It is a little difficult to understand in the English translation but none of these statements mean that God is going to bring these armies into the land of Israel. Instead they are saying that God is going to bring these armies out of Israel.

The first declaration in Ezekiel 38:4 is easy to understand. God will turn the invading armies back from where they came. In the second declaration the notion of “putting hooks into thy jaws” could be said as “putting a ring in your nose (or cheek)”. God will lead these invading armies out of Israel just like a farmer would lead a bull by a ring in its nose. The third declaration in Ezekiel 38:4 confuses us. It sounds as if God is leading theses armies forward. The Hebrew term that is translated as “bring thee forth” doesn’t mean “to bring forward” or “to bring into”. Instead the term “bring thee forth” means “to bring out” or “to get out” or “to carry out” or “to get away” or “to lead out” or “to pull out” or “to pluck out”. I hope that you can see that “bring thee forth” doesn’t mean to bring into but instead it means to bring out of.

The saying to put a hook into the jaw (or cheek) and to bring forth is used in other passages in the Bible. It always means that God will remove an army from the land of Israel or that God will remove a nation from its own land. It never means that God will lead an army into the land of Israel. It is a declaration of removal and not a depiction of entrance.

The Old Testament prophet Isaiah compares the Antichrist to the ancient Assyrian Kings. The Ezekiel chapter 38 invasion into Israel is similar to the ancient Assyrian invasions described by Isaiah. In Isaiah chapter 37 God leads the Assyrian army out of the land of Israel just like a farmer leads a bull by the ring in its nose. In the following verse God is speaking about Sennacherib king of Assyria.

Isaiah 37:29 Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears, therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.

Notice that God is turning the king of Assyria back in the way that he came from.

We can stop speculating about what sort of hook that God will use to bring an invading army into Israel. Yet we can begin to understand how God will remove this invading army out of Israel. In Isaiah God killed most of the Assyrian army as they slept. That was enough to turn them around and send them back to their hometown. Notice that in Isaiah 37:37, Nineveh was the capital city of the Assyrian Empire.

Isaiah 37:36-37 Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses. 37 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

So God will use a hook to remove the invading army described in Ezekiel chapter 38. But how will he do it? Ezekiel tells us how. God will use a great earthquake. He will cause the invaders to fight each other. God will make the invaders sick. God will make it rain and hail on them, and God will fight them with fire and brimstone.

Ezekiel 38:21-22 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. 22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

We shouldn’t try to identify the hook that God will use to bring an army into Israel. Instead we should understand that God will fight against the invading armies causing them to retreat back to where they came from. In Ezekiel chapter 38 it is important to see that God will fight to save Israel.

Leviticus 26:12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.

God promised to take care of Israel forever. Throughout their history Israel has suffered at the hands of other nations. In the near future the nation of Israel will once again suffer but in the end God will save them and finally secure their land forever.

Why do the Heathen Rage?

Why do the Heathen Rage?

Rebellion is refusing to humble oneself under the authority of God.

Psalm 2, Acts 4

By Craig C. White

Throughout the Middle East and northern Africa the nations are exercising their “Days of Rage”.  It has been widely proclaimed by the media that the nations are fighting to establish democracy. While some hope for democracy; Rage is induced by a different impulse. King David illuminates this timely question. “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?”

Psa 2:1-2  Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  2  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

The LORD’s anointed is Jesus Christ. The baptism of Jesus and his anointing with the Holy Spirit is recorded in all four gospels. This anointing of the Holy Spirit and the witness of God’s own voice prove that Jesus is the Son of God. We also have the following report of an eye-witness, namely John the Baptist. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

Mark 1:9-11  And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.  10  And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:  11  And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Psa 2:3-5  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  4  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.  5  Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

Why do the Heathen Rage? Here is the answer to our question. The heathen declare they will remove any authority or accountability that God the father or his Son have over them. This is of course impossible.

Rebellion is a certain type of sin. It is more insidious than sexual immorality or murder or theft. Rebellion is refusing to humble oneself under the authority of the one true God. The result of rebellion is everlasting punishment.

John 3:36  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

The nations rage in order to break accountability to God. This vain rage results in Israel’s sore distress. In “the day of the Lord”, God will break the yoke that the heathen has placed on the neck of Israel. Israel will no longer have to bend to international pressure to give up their land or defend their right to exist.

Jer 30:8  For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:

How can this be? Turkish President Erdogan revealed as Antichrist

How can this be?

Turkish President Erdogan revealed as Antichrist

By Craig C. White

Turkish President Erdogan revealed himself as the Antichrist in the Hagia Sophia Cathedral in Istanbul.

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.

Christians have been asking me how can the Hagia Sophia be “the temple of God” in 2Thessalonians? First of all, the Greek word that is translated as “temple” in 2Thessalonians 2:4 can refer to any temple or shrine so don’t get hung up thinking that it can only refer to the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.

The Hagia Sophia is called a temple in this seemingly prophetic Turkish poem. Resurrection of an empire and conquest are its themes. These are the primary goals of Satan.

“Hagia Sophia! O great temple, do not worry, the descendants of the conqueror will destroy all idols, turn you into a mosque, perform ablution with their tears, and make prostration between your walls, and the cheering and magnification will repeat among your domes. And this will be the second conquest, and the poets will write about the epics, and the call to prayer will again be heard and the sounds of enlargement from those silent orphan minarets, and the balconies of your minarets will glow in the lights in the sanctification of God and the honor of his prophet, so that people will think that the conqueror has resurrected again. The second will be resurrected after death. This is sure, do not worry, and these days are close, perhaps tomorrow or closer to tomorrow. ”

By Turkish poet Osman Yuksel Serdinci, who was sentenced to death in the early 1980s because of his struggle to reopen Hagia Sophia as a mosque.

The Hagia Sophia is the perfect place to reveal the Antichrist. The Ottoman Empire converted it into a mosque. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire the Hagia Sophia was turned into a museum. By turning the Hagia Sophia back into a mosque Turkish President Erdogan is proclaiming himself as the Sultan of a new Ottoman Empire. A renewed Ottoman Empire will oppress Israel during the Tribulation. Satan has been the influence behind every world empire.

Pastor Steve Cioccolanti recognizes the significance of the conversion of the Hagia Sophia into a mosque. He recognizes that the Antichrist will come from a revived Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire. I agree with Pastor Steve Cioccolanti. Two witnesses have confirmed this for you.

Turkish President Erdogan has revealed himself as the Antichrist by sitting in the Hagia Sophia exalting himself above the Christian God. A red line has been drawn for Christians who insist on looking for a European Antichrist. Opportunity to rightly watch for Christ’s return is dwindling. The Tribulation is at our doorstep.

Pastor Cioccolanti recognizes that Erdogan’s subjugation of the Hagia Sophia is a monumental event. But this isn’t the first thing that identifies Turkish President Erdogan as being the Antichrist.

Erdogan is Magog the chief prince among the provinces of Turkey. According to Ezekiel chapter 38 Turkey will lead the Islamic nations into Israel.

Eze 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

Erdogan has built the largest palace in the world in Ankara. He is not honoring Allah but Erdogan is honoring the God of Ottoman conquest in his palace with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things

Dan 11:38 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.

Erdogan has built several mosques in Istanbul including the largest in Turkey that is dedicated to the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. Erdogan has built the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in Istanbul. Better look on a map. There is no other place on earth that could better be described as between the seas than the Bosporus.

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 head of the seventh world empire will be healed. That means that a revived Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire must be the end time empire that will oppress Israel. The head of the Ottoman Empire is being healed in front our eyes. How is it that we can’t see it?

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

Turkish President Erdogan had already fulfilled Bible prophecy that identifies him as the Antichrist. On Friday July 24th 2020 Erdogan was officially revealed as the Antichrist as he sat in the Hagia Sophia exalting himself above the Christian God.

We as Christians are commanded to watch as the day of Jesus’ return approaches. I mean the day of the Rapture.

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.

Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

In order to properly watch we must know what the Bible says. Then we must recognize the signs of our time. I am afraid that very few Christians really do understand what God has been trying to tell them. Many hold odd popularized views that haven’t really been searched out. Many have rebuked me for declaring that the Antichrist has been revealed. There are consequences for holding wrong views. Pretty soon people won’t have the luxury of holding wrong views about Bible prophecy. They will just become victims of it. It’s High Time to Awake!

It’s High Time to gain a mature understanding of Matthew chapter 24

It’s High Time to gain a mature understanding of Matthew chapter 24

Trust me it’s better to figure this out now than after you meet Jesus

By Craig C. White

Matthew chapter 24 has nothing to do with the Church or with the Rapture. Matthew chapter 24 is directed to Jerusalem and Judea during their seven years of Tribulation. One Jew in Jerusalem will be taken away as prisoner and the other left when the Antichrist attacks Jerusalem. Earthquakes, wars, and famines are signs that happen during the first half of the Tribulation. They are signs to Israel that their great tribulation is about to begin.

The days of Noah do not apply to pre-tribulation or pre-rapture events. Like Noah’s generation was taken away suddenly, the Jews in Jerusalem will be overtaken suddenly by the armies of the Antichrist. Nobody knows the day and hour that the Antichrist will attack Jerusalem and Judea. That’s why Jesus told the residents of Jerusalem to watch.

Applying Matthew chapter 24 to the Church is a recent popular development. Throughout Church history Bible scholars have firmly understood that Jesus is talking to and about the Jews living in Jerusalem and Judea. Even today real Bible scholars understand this. Unfortunately they are few and far between. It is very apparent that Jesus is addressing the Jews if only you read the chapter without popular bias.

Yes we are in the last days but Matthew chapter 24 doesn’t apply now. In fact, the Rapture of the Church will happen before the beginning of sorrows mentioned in Matthew 24. It’s High Time to gain a mature understanding of the Scriptures. It’s High Time to Awake!
