Revelation chapter 12 verse by verse

The fall of Satan, the rise of the Antichrist, the rejoicing of the Church in heaven, the persecution of Israel, and the escape of Jewish Christians

By Craig C. White

Euphoria or Grief, which would you prefer? Every person chooses between the two. In Revelation chapter 12 God throws Satan out of heaven. That event divides salvation, and rejoicing in heaven from wrath, and grief on earth. This passage covers the events leading up to Satan’s fall. It may seem cryptic at first but with a little understanding we can decipher it. This chapter is not about Church age believers but it is about the nation of Israel. It is particularly about the Jews living in Jerusalem and the surrounding region of Judea during their great tribulation.

Revelation 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

Israel is pictured here. The LORD is her light (Isa 60:19-20); she is crowned with twelve sons, the tribes of Israel.

Remember Joseph’s dream? The twelve stars are the twelve sons of Jacob whom God named Israel. There are only eleven stars in Joseph’s dream because Joseph himself is the twelfth star (or son).

Gen 37:9-10 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. 10 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?

Revelation 12:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

The child is Jesus Christ; God in human flesh; the child given to the world by way of Israel (Isa 7:14). Jesus was born at his due time; Christ also died in due time (Rom 5:6).

Revelation 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

The dragon is Satan; the god of this world. The seven heads are the seven gentile world empires of world history; Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Persian, Grecian, Roman, plus the final gentile world empire yet to come. Ten horns are ten kings that rule that final world empire (Dan 7:24). Satan is the influence behind world empires. He wants to be worshiped as the god of this world (Isa 14:12-14).

Revelation 12:4a And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:

One third of the angels in heaven follow Satan. He will throw them to the earth with him. The following verses refer to Antiochus Epiphanies the king of the Seleucid dynasty of the Grecian Empire. It may also more directly apply to the Antichrist and Satan at the time of the devil’s fall.

Dan 8:9-11 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. 10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. 11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.

Revelation 12:4b and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Satan influenced Herod, the king of Judea to kill all male children around Bethlehem that were less than two years of age in order to eliminate the messiah (Mat 2:16).

Revelation 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

Jesus was born through the nation of Israel. His destiny is to rule all the earth from Jerusalem forever (Isa 9:6-7). After Christ’s resurrection he was taken up to heaven to sit at the right hand of God until his return (Mar 16:19).

Revelation 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

During the second half of the seven year long Tribulation period (called Jerusalem’s great tribulation in Matthew 24:21) the people of Judea (which is the region around Jerusalem) will flee to the mountains where God will sustain them for three and a half years (Mat 24:15-16, Luke 21:21-22). I think that this place is on the east side of the Jordan River near Jericho and Mt. Nebo, where Israel entered the land after the exodus. It is also the place where ravens fed Elijah as he hid (1Ki 17:3).

Revelation 12:7-9 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

There will be a war in heaven and Satan and his angels (devils) will be thrown out. This war may be going on right now. We will know officially that the war in heaven is over and that Satan has been cast to the earth when we see the Antichrist sitting in the temple in Jerusalem (2Thes 2:4). But allow me to warn you that Satan’s fall may be apparent well before the Antichrist sits in the temple. Luke chapter 10:18 says, “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” Satan is tossed out of heaven and then gives the Antichrist influence on earth.

Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

The casting out of Satan marks the beginning of God’s great judgment of the rebellious. It marks the beginning of God’s final dominion on earth. Only the seven year tribulation period precedes the day that Jesus Christ takes his thrown in Jerusalem. Today Satan accuses believers of sin in front of God in heaven. Soon Satan will be cast out of heaven for good. According to 2 Thessalonians 2 Satan is cast out of heaven before the Antichrist is revealed as he sits in the temple. Satan empowers the Antichrist on earth. Satan’s removal from heaven is called “the falling away”.

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

At this point in Revelation chapter 12 Satan has just been cast out of heaven. He can no longer stand before God to accuse Christians of disobedience. Folks, I think that the previous verse refers to Church age believers that have been taken up into heaven at the Rapture. So the Rapture occurs either before or at the time that Satan falls from heaven. In the next verse the inhabitants of heaven rejoice when Satan is cast out of heaven. I think that the Church age believers in Jesus Christ are in heaven when Satan is cast out. The only way that a person can be with God in heaven is to trust in Jesus Christ’s blood sacrifice as payment for their sins (John 1:29).

Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

The Church will rejoice in heaven while people on earth will be subject to the wrath of Satan and the judgment of God during the seven year long Tribulation period (Mat 24:21).

Revelation 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

After Satan is cast out of heaven, Satan and the Antichrist will persecute the nation of Israel. This is known as the seven year long Tribulation period. In the middle of this seven year period the Antichrist will launch a surprise attack on Jerusalem and Judea. The second half of the Tribulation period is called Jerusalem’s great tribulation in Matthew 24:21. Jerusalem will suffer greater anguish than they ever have at any time throughout history. Jerusalem’s great tribulation is also known as “the time of Jacob’s trouble” in Jeremiah 30:7.

Revelation 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

The term “wings of a great eagle” probably has nothing to do with the United States. It means that God is helping the Jews to escape. God carried the Jews on eagles wings when they escaped Egypt (Exodus 19:4).

Jesus warned the people of Judea to keep watch for the Antichrist as he comes to attack Jerusalem. When they see him coming they are to flee to the mountains to the east of Jerusalem. Isaiah 16:3-5 says that the Jews who flee Judea will take refuge in the province of Moab in Jordan. Today there is a significant refugee camp in the town of Kerak, Jordan. Kerak is in the Moab province of Jordan. Perhaps the Jews who flee Judea will live in refugee camps in Kerak. These Judean refugees will be cared for for three and one half years.

Mat 24:15-16 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:

Luke 21:20-22 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

Jesus may have been referring to the same warning that Jeremiah gave in the Old Testament.

Jeremiah 6:1 O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction.

OK now let’s think about what has happened so far. Satan has fallen from heaven to the earth. Christians have been taken up into safety in heaven while Satan and the Antichrist cause a lot of trouble on earth. The Antichrist has suddenly attacked Jerusalem and Judea, but some of the Jews have escaped to Jordan.

Some of the Jews have fled to the mountains! That means that some of the Jews have believed Jesus Christ’s warning! That means that there are believing Jews in Israel after the Rapture of the Church and during the Tribulation period.

Revelation 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

I think that the verse above is describing the army of the Antichrist as they pursue the fleeing Jews. The armies are somehow stopped by the earth. Perhaps by an earthquake or an opening fault line. God drowned Pharaoh’s army in the Red Sea when Israel escaped Egypt. Perhaps God will drown the Antichrist’s army in the Jordan River.

Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

I’m not exactly sure who this verse refers to but this verse is probably not referring to Church age Christians. Instead it could be referring to the Jewish refugees that have fled away from southern Israel in order to escape the Antichrist’s invading army. These refugees will live in Jordan for three and one half years but at the end of that time several nations will attack them (Psalm 83). These Jewish refugees have believed the warning that Jesus gave them in the New Testament. They have fled into the wilderness. On the other hand Revelation 12:17 may refer to Jewish believers who have believed in Jesus but who haven’t escaped out of the land of Israel.

By the way Psalm 83 is the plea of the Judean refugees for God’s help. After living in Jordan for three and one half years their enemies are about to attack them again.

New World Order Map

New World Order Map

4 Quadrants of the Final Gentile World Empire

Revelation 20:8

By Craig C. White

This commentary features a map of the final gentile world empire as described in Daniel chapter 7. The final gentile world empire will be operational during the Tribulation period. It will be headed by the Antichrist, and it will be destroyed by Jesus Christ at his second coming. The final gentile world empire is also known as “The New World Order”. It is the last chance that God will offer men to rule over the earth. World leaders today are ardently working toward the formation of the New World Order.

My commentary titled “The Leopard is Upon Us!” explains Daniel’s description of the end time formation of this final man ruled empire. My commentary goes through Daniel chapter 7 verse by verse. It is one of my most important commentaries, and this map is its culmination. Please read “The Leopard is Upon Us!”

I know that many of us are confused about the size of the next world empire. Most people think that the Antichrist will rule over the entire earth. He won’t. The final gentile world empire will cover the same geographic region that every world empire has covered; namely the old world.

You probably think that this commentary is about the New World Order; and yes it is. But even more, it is about the very center of the New World Order. I mean the very center of the New World Order politically, as well as the very center of it geographically!

According to Daniel chapter 7 the final gentile empire is formed by combining three groups of nations (or Unions). These “Unions” include 1) The European Union, 2) a new Russian Union, 3) and a new Middle Eastern Union. If you ask your pastor about this he will flip his toupee. This subject, along with Daniel chapter 7 has long been neglected and misunderstood.

So there are three groups of nations or Unions that combine to form one big empire. That’s easy to understand. But wait, I told you earlier that this commentary was about the center of this world empire. Well there is a nation that sits smack in the middle of these three Unions. It is the geographic center of the New World Order. It is also the place where the leader of the next world empire sits today. That nation is Turkey!

This commentary isn’t about three Unions. It is about four quadrants. All four quadrants of the final gentile world empire intersect at Turkey. That means that the four corners of the old world meet at the nation of Turkey. So then Turkey is the center of the gentile world. Let’s remember that civilization resumed near Mt. Ararat in eastern Turkey after Noah’s flood.

Just to let you know. God views Turkey as the symbol and very heart of the world’s rebellion. Ezekiel chapter 38 and 39 describe two separate end time invasions into Israel that are led by the ruler of Turkey. Many nations are joined with Turkey during these battles. These battles represent man’s rebellion toward God and the world’s hatred of Israel, God’s chosen people. Both of these battles are led by the “chief prince” or primary governor of Turkey known as “Magog” in Ezekiel. The Hebrew words translated as “chief prince” in Ezekiel 38:2 practically spell out “Prime Minister”! My commentaries titled “Magog Made Easy!” and “Magog Made Easier!” talks all about Ezekiel chapter 38 and 39.

Magog is the ruler of Turkey. He will lead a near time invasion into Israel (Eze 38). He will also lead another invasion into Israel at the end of the Tribulation period (Eze 39). This latter invasion is also known as the battle of Armageddon. Magog may or may not be the same person during these two battles, but he will always be a leader of Turkey. Some of you may have already realized that Magog leads even another third battle against Israel after the first one thousand year reign on earth of Jesus Christ. This battle is described in Revelation chapter 20 below.

Rev 20:7-9 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

The four quarters of the earth! OK, now this is what this commentary is really about! Four quarters and four corners! The Greek word translated as quarters in Revelation 20:8 is gonia. Gonia means corner or quarter.

gonia, go-nee’-ah
an angle: – corner, quarter.

Turkey is where the four quarters of the final man ordained world empire collide. Turkey is the center of earthly civilization. Turkey is the geographic center of all of the nations. Turkey is where east meets west. Turkey is the epicenter and symbol of man’s rebellion toward God. Turkey is where Magog will come from. Turkey is where the Antichrist will come from. Turkey will lead the world into battle against Israel now; and Turkey will lead the world into battle against Israel latter.

Turkey is about to invade Syria, decimating Damascus, and then lead a Middle Eastern invasion into Israel. Turkey is where the Antichrist will come from! I think that he will be a Turkish Prime Minister. I think that the Antichrist could be current Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan. I am certain that Prime Minister Erdogan is Magog as described in Ezekiel chapter 38.

Take a look at The New World Order Map below. The four corners of the final man ruled world empire meet at the nation of Turkey.NWO map

The New World Order Map depicts the four quadrants of civilization. It also depicts the three groups of nations (or Unions) that will combine to create the final gentile world empire. The Antichrist will be the leader of this final man ruled empire. He and it will be destroyed at Jesus Christ’s second coming. I think that Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran will be the four main nations in the new Central Asian Union. Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India may be secondary members. The Leopard in Daniel 7:5 has four heads and also four wings. My commentary titled “The Leopard is Upon Us!” details the end time formation of the New World Order.

Today we have all become a little wiser. It is High Time to Awake!

The Last Jews in Jerusalem

The Last Jews in Jerusalem

The Second Greatest Human Anguish

Isaiah 26:1

By Craig C. White

Note: Illustration is of a model of Herod’s Temple in the Israel Museum of Jerusalem. It may be that the next temple is Jerusalem’s last stronghold!

During the Great Tribulation a small band of Jews will be holed up on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. While most of their countrymen have been captured or killed; this small band will stand as the last beacon of hope that God will restore their city and nation. The armies of their enemies will finally flood into the city. As the last few remaining Jews in Jerusalem pray for deliverance they will look up and behold their God!

The greatest human anguish was Jesus’ cup of suffering and death on the cross. Before Jesus was taken prisoner he prayed.

Luk 22:41-44 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. 43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Jesus was strengthened by an angel because he was in the form of frail humanity. The suffering before him no other person has ever born. Nor could any other person ever bear. Jesus was beaten so badly that he was not recognizable as a man (Isa 52:14). Then he was hung on a roman cross until he died, bearing God’s punishment for the sins of the world. On the road to Golgotha to be crucified he turned to the women by the way and told them not to weep for him, but to weep for the suffering that was to come upon them.

Luk 23:27-31 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. 28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

There is a terrible time of judgment and suffering coming upon the land of Israel; more terrible than the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 A.D.; more terrible than the holocaust.

Mat 24:21-22 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

The Tribulation begins in the whole land of Israel, it becomes Great Tribulation in the city of Jerusalem, it then culminates on Mount Zion. Two thirds of the people in all the land of Israel will die (Zec 13:8). Then half of the people in Jerusalem will be taken captive (Zec 14:2).

Zechariah 13:8-9 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

Zec 14:1-2 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Anyone who tries to flee Jerusalem will be captured (Isa 30:16). Then the residue of the city will huddle together on mount Zion (which is the hill of Ophel or the “City of David”) in Jerusalem and wait for their redeemer.

Isa 30:15-18 For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not. 16 But ye said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall ye flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift. 17 One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill. 18 And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. 19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.

The debate continues about the origin and meaning of the name Jerusalem. The best deduction is that it means “fortress or stronghold of peace”. Mount Zion will be the last stronghold. When Jesus returns in power and glory Jerusalem will be the capital of peace throughout the world.

Isa 26:1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.

The nations besiege the City of David where the last few people of Jerusalem are bunkered.

Isa 29:1-4 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices. 2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel. 3 And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee. 4 And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.

Note: It may be that Israel’s next temple will be built in the City of David. It was where King David placed the ark of God in a tabernacle he prepared when he took it from the house of Obededom (2Sa 6:12-17).

They are in sore distress. What can they do? Here is God’s instruction.

Joel 2:12-17 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. 17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

God hears the supplications of those trapped on mount Zion. The residue of Jerusalem escapes through the new valley that Jesus makes in the Mount of Olives. God doesn’t only part seas. He is also able to split mountains.

Zec 14:3-5 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

Azal is the wilderness east of the Mount of Olives where the azazel was released (Lev 16:8-27). The Hebrew word “azazel” is translated “scapegoat” in English. Azazel means “complete removal”. Just as Jesus Christ completely removed our sins by his death(Psa 103:12, Isa 43:25, Jer 31:34, Jer 50:20, Mic 7:18, 1Jo 1:7). Jesus now completely removes the residue in Jerusalem from harm.

Then Jesus “whom they have pierced” will destroy all the nations that have come against Jerusalem. The few remaining Jews in Jerusalem will see Jesus and mourn for their unbelief. They will turn to Jesus the Messiah.

Zec 12:9-10 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. 10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

The whole nation of Israel will see Jesus and believe. They will mourn for their rejection of him. Israel will never be in unbelief again forever. Glory to God!

Zechariah 12:11-14 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon. 12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart; 13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart; 14 All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.

Just as God will make a way of escape for the Jerusalem residue; God has provided two escapes for Israel before the time of Jacob’s trouble. The first is to turn to the Lord Jesus while it is called today”. This is explained in the book written to the Hebrews.

Heb 3:7-19 7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. 11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) 12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; 15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. 17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

The second way of escape is given only to those who are in Judaea. Flee to the mountains!

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.

Luk 21:20-22 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

In the wilderness of the mountains, Part of Israel will be nourished for three and a half years.

Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

Here is my message to Israel. Escape this day of human anguish. My prayer for Israel, turn to Jesus the messiah while it is called today!

Very interesting to read and hard to stop. – Alexandria

Zechariah 13:8-9

Erdogan says “They have commenced a struggle between the cross and crescent”

Turkish President makes stand against Europe and Christendom

By Craig C. White

Turkish President Erdogan has declared war between cross and crescent, between Christianity and Islam. Erdogan threatened that Turks in Europe will rise up against Europeans.

Erdogan along with his supporters plan to convert the ancient Christian cathedral Hagia Sophia into a mosque. Erdogan plans to lead Muslim prayers there even though it is unlawful for a secular leader to do so. By leading Muslim prayers Erdogan is proclaiming himself as an Islamic Imam. For eight decades the Hagia Sophia has stood as a symbol of Turkey’s dedication to a secular society, accepting of both Islam and Christianity. Converting the old church into a Mosque will declare that Turkey and Islam have usurped Christianity. The war between cross and crescent will have officially begun.

In the attached article, Walid Shoebat suggests that this could fulfill 2Thessalonians 2:4. I think that this is worth considering.

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.

There will obviously be a physical temple building during the Tribulation period. In Revelation the Apostle John was instructed to measure its physical dimensions.

Rev 11:1-2 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

I wonder if the following two passages are describing two separate events.

Mat 24:15-16 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:

Verses

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.

Matthew 24:15-16 could be referencing theses verses Dan 9:27, Dan 12:11.

Dan 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.

2Thessalonians 2:4 could be referencing these verses Isa_14:13; Eze 28:2, Dan 7:25, Dan 8:9-11, Dan 11:36; Rev 13:6.

Ezekiel 28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:

Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

I wonder if the Antichrist standing in the temple of God (2Thess 2:4) is a separate event than the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (Mat 24 15:16). I wonder if Turkish President Erdogan standing in the Hagia Sophia showing himself that he is God could fulfill 2Thessalonians 2:4.

High Time to Awake has reached the Turkish national media

High Time to Awake has reached the Turkish national media

Now if I could only reach Christians

By Craig C. White

Several news articles have been published in major Turkish and international news outlets critiquing my book “Turkey invades Israel – Halfway to Armageddon“. These Turkish journalists and scholars are somewhat alarmed over my position that Turkish President Erdogan is the biblical Antichrist. I suppose that that is understandable. They are also upset that I have said that the Turkish Army has entered Syria and will continue to Damascus and then enter the Golan Heights of Israel.

I have been telling people about Turkey’s role in end time Bible prophecy from the scriptures for the past seven years on my website hightimetoawake.com. I don’t think that most Turks are receiving my book “Turkey invades Israel – Halfway to Armageddon” as a message from God. But my book is in fact just that; a message from God and from his prophets. I am only studying the Holy Bible and reporting what it says.

Turkish journalists have read my book “Turkey Invades Israel – Halfway to Armageddon” and have understood that the Bible predicts that Turkey will conquer Syria first and then invade northern Israel. That is pretty smart. At least they do understand my message. That is a better response than I have received from most Christians over the past seven years. I am glad that at least somebody is finally listening.

If only Christians would wake up to understand the truth of end time events as the Bible describes them. Turkey will soon attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat as Jeremiah 49:23 says. Then Turkey will destroy Damascus (Jeremiah 49:23-27). Afterwards Turkey will lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into the Golan Heights of Israel (Ezekiel 38). Expect Jesus Christ to return to turn them back (Nahum 1). At that time Jesus will also gather his Church. It is High Time to Awake!
