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.

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!

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.

Fourth Sochi Summit – Russia, Turkey, and Iran meet on Syria

Fourth Sochi Summit

Russia, Turkey, and Iran meet on Syria

By Craig C. White

SOCHI, Russia – February 15, 2019 – This week Russia, Turkey, and Iran held their fourth round of talks on Syria in the Russian town of Sochi. Russia insists that Turkey take control of the Al-Qaeda group Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham in the northwestern Syria province of Idlid.

During the summit Russia and Turkey agreed to take “decisive measures” against Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham. Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham was previously known as Al-Nusra front and is the Syrian affiliate of Al-Qaeda. Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham is considered to be a radical rebel group. Russia and Turkey had previously agreed to create a demilitarized zone around the Idlib province. Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham has violated this agreement and has taken control over most of the demilitarized zone. Turkey has now agreed to clear Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham from the Idlib province.

Things are not necessarily what they seem. At the same time that Turkey has agreed to fight against Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham, Turkey is also trying to bring them into the Turkish controlled “Syrian National Army”. The Syrian National Army is a collection of Al-Qaeda groups in Idlib under Turkish leadership.

Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham is not a natural enemy of Turkey. Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham served as security guards for the Turkish Army when the Turkish Army first entered the Idlib province. ISIS, Al-Nusra, all other Al-Qaeda factions, the Free Syrian Army, and Turkey are all Sunni Muslim. They are all in cahoots. Do you really think that Turkey will defeat Al-Nusra in Idlib?

Here is my guess. At some point Turkey will lead all of the Al-Qaeda groups in Idlib including Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham against the Syrian Army in Hamah.

The Prophet Jeremiah says that when Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. The Turkish Army is arrayed against both of these cities 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.

Here are the main points that came out of this latest Sochi summit. Russia wants Turkey to defeat the Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham (Al-Nusra) Al-Qaeda group in Idlib. Turkey wants to expel Kurdish fighters from northeastern Syria. Turkey wants to wait until the US pulls its troops out of northeastern Syria. Russia and Iran say that the Syrian government should control northeastern Syria.
