Jordan is all about refugees

Jordan is all about refugees

Damascus & Judea

By Craig C. White

The Bible tells us that Jordan will be the home of many refugees during the end time.

Today about ten percent of Jordan’s population consists of refugees from Syria. When Damascus is destroyed many more Syrian refugees will flood into Jordan. They will head for the Jordanian town of Kerak. There is a large refugee camp in Kerak today.

Amos 1:5 I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.

Jordan will also be the home of many Israeli refugees during the Great Tribulation. They may also head for Kerak in the Moab region of Jordan. There is an ancient fortress there. Jordan will eventually turn against these Jewish refugees.

Isaiah 16:4 Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.

Israeli’s from around Jerusalem are warned to flee to Jordan during the Great Tribulation. They will be sheltered and fed there for three and one half years. Psalm 83 is a prayer for help for the refugees as Jordan turns against them.

Psalm 83:3  They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

Jesus Christ will wipe out Jordan at the end of the Tribulation.

Isaiah 34:6 The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.

When Jesus arrives in Jerusalem his clothed will be saturated with the blood of Jordanians and also with the blood of the other armies that have gathered in Jordan to destroy the Israeli refugees.

Isaiah 63:1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.

Jordan will also escape the clutches of the Antichrist!

Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

In the verses above, Edom, Moab, and Ammon are all ancient provinces in the country we now call Jordan.

Erdogan official revealed as the Antichrist

By Craig C. White

On July 24, 2020 Turkish President Erdogan sat in the 1500 year old Hagia Sophia Cathedral in Istanbul, Turkey showing himself that he is greater than the Christian God. According to 2Thessalonians this is how the Antichrist will be officially revealed. Erdogan official revealed himself as being the Antichrist.

It’s true that the Antichrist will desecrate the temple in Jerusalem during the second 3 1/2 year period of the seven year long Tribulation period. But I think that 2Thessalonians is describing a separate event. 2Thessalonians doesn’t identify the temple of God as being located in Jerusalem. 2Thessalonians also doesn’t mention the desecration of the temple. 2Thessalonians also doesn’t mention the stopping of the daily sacrifice.

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 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:)

Another thing to consider is that the abomination of desolation will stand in the Holy place but the Antichrist will sit in the temple of God. Turkish President Erdogan sat on the floor as he recited the Quran in the dedication service of the Hagia Sophia as a mosque.

I think that the temple of God mentioned in 2Thessalonians is other than the temple in Jerusalem. I think that the temple of God mentioned in 2Thessalonians is the Hagia Sophia which is the most significant Christian Cathedral in the history of the world. Turkish President Erdogan just sat in the Hagia Sophia revealing himself as the Antichrist.

The men of Nineveh will be resurrected with this generation

By Craig C. White

Can you name one Hebrew prophet who was sent to another nation besides Israel? I can. He’s the Prophet Jonah. Jonah was sent to the Assyrians in the ancient city of Nineveh. The Assyrians were the worst scoundrels of the old world. The Assyrians did unspeakable things to their enemies. The city of Nineveh was the capital of the ancient Assyrian Empire. Today the ruins of Nineveh lie within the borders of Mosul in northern Iraq. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS. Many of the horrific things that ISIS has done were learned from their Assyrian forefathers. Today ISIS in northern Iraq is a revived Assyrian state. It’s no wonder why Jonah didn’t want to go to Nineveh.

So God sent Jonah to the Assyrians in Nineveh. The Assyrians represented the worst among the Gentile nations. Jonah warned Nineveh to repent or God would destroy their city. The Assyrians in Nineveh did repent but several years later they attacked Israel and carried away captives. One of those captives was the Prophet Nahum. Nahum also had a message for Nineveh.

Both Jonah and Nahum prophesied against the same city of Nineveh but their missions were different. Jonah preached repentance to the Gentiles living in Nineveh, while Nahum comforted the nation of Israel. The Assyrians had captured the Jews and brought them to Nineveh. Nahum assured Israel that their captors would soon be defeated.

The book of Nahum is mostly about the flooding and destruction of ancient Nineveh. In 612 BC the Babylonians led a siege on Nineveh. Nineveh was perhaps the greatest fortified city of the ancient world. Nineveh was surrounded by fifty foot tall walls and was situated directly on the Tigris River. After God sent torrential rains that swelled the Tigris River and eroded the foundations of the city walls, then the Babylonians, Medes, and Persians were able to enter Nineveh and plunder it until nothing was left.

Now I am going to tell you that many of the same things that Nahum predicted would happen long ago in Nineveh have recently happened again in Mosul. Remember that Mosul in northern Iraq is Nineveh. The same three armies that destroyed ancient Nineveh have now also defeated ISIS in Mosul. I think that Nahum’s predictions also apply today.

The book of Nahum also contains another story that has been almost completely overlooked until now. The first chapter of Nahum describes Jesus Christ as he comes in a whirlwind of fire to the Golan Heights. The Golan Heights separates northern Israel from Syria and Lebanon. In the book of Nahum, God first scorches the Golan Heights with the heat of his coming, and then he destroys Nineveh with a flood of water. In 612 BC God did destroy ancient Nineveh with a flood but please notice that God has never before burned the Golan Heights with a fiery whirlwind. That leads me to suspect that the book of Nahum is predicting yet future events. My dear friends, I think that Jesus Christ will come to the Golan Heights in a fiery whirlwind to the Golan Heights and then travel to northern Iraq to flood Mosul. These things will happen when Jesus returns to resurrect and rapture his Church!

In the first chapter of Nahum he tells us that God will judge the wicked. Nahum goes on to describe Jesus Christ as he comes in a whirlwind across northern Israel, southern Syria, and southern Lebanon (Bashan, Carmel, and Lebanon). This is the same path that Jonah followed after he was delivered from the sea.

Nahum 1:3-7  The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.  4  He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.  5  The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.  6  Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.  7  The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

Nahum tells us that Jesus will fight on the Golan Heights. In Nahum verse 7 it says that God will protect believers in that day of trouble. Could this be telling us that the Resurrection and Rapture will happen when Jesus returns to the Golan Heights to repel Israel’s enemies?

Jonah was living in northwestern Israel when God commanded him to go to Nineveh. But Jonah refused to go. Instead he boarded the first boat headed for the nearby Island fortress of Tarshish. Jonah was trying to hide from God. Tarshish was located just one mile off of the shore of Tyre in southern Lebanon (Isaiah 23:10). You probably know the rest of the story. Jonah was swallowed by a great fish and spit out on dry land somewhere between Joppa and his desired destination of Tarshish. Jonah began his trip to Nineveh from the Mediterranean seacoast somewhere between northern Israel and southern Lebanon. That puts him right at the Golan Heights! Amazingly the events that are described in the book of Nahum follow the same path that Jonah traveled on his way to Nineveh. I think that Jesus will follow this same path when he returns. Jesus will fight against a Turkish led invasion on the Golan Heights and then travel eastward towards Mosul to wipe out one last ISIS uprising in Mosul. Jesus will gather Christians at that same time.

Why do I think that Turkey will invade the Golan Heights? There are three reasons. 1) Ezekiel chapter 38 describes a Turkish led invasion into Israel. 2) Every nation that is listed in Ezekiel chapter 38 is fighting in Syria. 3) Turkish President Erdogan has called on the Islamic nations to take the Golan Heights away from Israel. I think that Turkey will destroy Damascus and then lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into northern Israel just thirty miles away.

Read Jonah chapter 2 below. This describes Jonah’s trial as he sunk to the depths of the sea while inside of a great fish. These verses are repeated in several Psalms. They also describe Jesus Christ’s descent into the depths of the earth at his death. Jonah illustrates the death, burial, and resurrection of the believer.

Jonah 2:1-10  Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly,  2  And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.  3  For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.  4  Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.  5  The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.  6  I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.  7  When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.  8  They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.  9  But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.  10  And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.

The book of Jonah points to the resurrection of Jesus Christ and also to the resurrection of every believer. The resurrection of Church age Christians happens on one particular day. I think that Jonah is telling us when. It will be when Jesus returns to repel Israel’s enemies on the Golan Heights and then travels eastward to Mosul to destroy it with a flood.

Now look at Matthew chapter 12. Jesus promised to give Israel one sign that he was truly their Messiah. Jesus would give them the sign of Jonah. In verse 41 Jesus points to the day that the men of Nineveh would rise from the dead. So the resurrection of Gentiles will be a sign to Israel that Jesus has power over death. Like the book of Jonah; the sign of Jonah also directs us to the day of resurrection.

Matthew 12:38-41 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. 39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

Since the resurrection of Gentiles is embodied in the sign of Jonah and is illustrated by the city of Nineveh, then we should probably look to Nineveh concerning our own resurrection. Jonah and the book of Nahum both follow the same path. They start at the Mediterranean Sea. Then they travel across northern Israel to Nineveh in northern Iraq. This could be the same path that Jesus will follow when he returns for his Church. I think that the Resurrection will happen when Jesus returns to judge Nineveh (which is modern day Mosul). According to Nahum chapter 1 the flooding of Mosul is preceded by God as he comes in a whirlwind of fire to the Golan Heights. It seems that today the Turkish Army is headed towards the Golan Heights by way of Damascus.

The sign of Jonah

The sign of Jonah

Sign of Jonah

The destruction of Mosul may be Israel’s last sign that Jesus is their God

By Craig C. White

The ancient city of Nineveh was known for its bloodshed and cruelty. Back around 800 BC God sent the Prophet Jonah to the city of Nineveh with a message, “Repent of your evil ways or the city would be destroyed in forty days!” That generation repented but it seems that this generation doesn’t want the chance.

Jonah 3:4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

Today the ruins of Nineveh lie within the city limits of Mosul, Iraq. Mosul in the Nineveh Province is the home town of the Al-Qaeda terrorist group known as ISIS. Since June 10th, 2014 ISIS in Mosul has been behaving in the same way as the ancient Ninevites. They have committed horrific atrocities against their fellow countrymen in the Nineveh province of northern Iraq.

On July 24th 2014 ISIS blew up the shrine to Jonah in Nineveh.

In Jonah’s day the city of Nineveh repented however God finally judged the city in 612 BC. The Prophet Nahum foretells the destruction of Nineveh. The city was flooded by the Tigris River and was then besieged by three nations. Babylon, Persia, and the Medes plundered Nineveh for two months leveling the city. Today the same three nations are fighting against ISIS in Mosul. They are Iraq, Iran, and the Kurds. Perhaps God will send another flood along with these three armies to once again overwhelm Mosul at Nineveh!

Nahum 1:8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.

Conditions in Mosul are the same as they were in ancient Nineveh. There is overflowing bloodshed. The Mosul dam is in danger of bursting. The same three armies are set against it. Nahum likely also foretells the destruction of Mosul.

Nahum 3:1-3 Woe to the bloody city! it is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departeth not; 2 The noise of a whip, and the noise of the rattling of the wheels, and of the pransing horses, and of the jumping chariots. 3 The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases; and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses:

God spared the city of Nineveh in Jonah’s’ day. Jonah was upset because the people of Nineveh repented and escaped God’s punishment. God reminded Jonah that many innocent lives would be lost during the destruction of Nineveh. I suppose that most of us today would be happy to see ISIS in Mosul wiped out. In the book of Jonah God reminds us of the human tragedy his judgment brings. Moral of the story; repent while you still can!

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Folks wanted proof that Jesus was God so they demanded a sign. Jesus gave them the sign of Jonah. Just as Jonah was inside of the fish for three days Jesus also rose from the grave in three days. But there may be more to the sign of Jonah. Long before the Mosul dam was ever built Bible scholars have wondered if the preaching of Jonah was also a part of the sign. The grammar of Mathew 12:39-41 leads some Bible scholars to think that the subject of Jesus’s comment was the preaching of Jonah.

Matthew 12:38-41 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. 39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

The Greek word translated as “sign” means miracle or supernatural wonder. Notice in verse 41 that the men of Nineveh repented at the preaching of Jonah. They did not repent at the miracle of surviving in a large fish for three days.

The unbelieving religious rulers in Jerusalem demanded a sign from Jesus. Jesus told them that they would not be be given a sign except for the sign of Jonah. Jonah was sent to ancient Nineveh to tell them to repent because God’s judgment was coming on the city. The destruction of Mosul could be the end time sign to Israel that Jesus is truly their God and that their time of trouble is at hand.

Jesus said that an evil generation desires to be shown a sign. We should already know and honor God because it is evident that he has created all things and also because has given us his word. We should not require a sign in order to motivate us to repent from our unbelief and rebellion. Nevertheless Jesus gave his generation the sign of Jonah.

Perhaps this generation will repent at the preaching of Jonah when Mosul is flooded! If Israel repents at the preaching of Jonah then they will narrowly escape God’s coming judgement on the city of Jerusalem and on the nation of Israel.

Jesus said that even the men of ancient Nineveh will rise from the dead and condemn his generation for its unbelief. It seems to me that this generation is about to witness another sign of Jonah. ISIS in the city of Mosul rejected Jonah’s offer of repentance by blowing up Jonah’s shrine. A terrible time of God’s judgment is coming upon Israel and also upon all of the earth. Only by repentance from unbelief can we escape it.

I suspect that the Prophet Nahum describes the fall of ancient Nineveh as well as the demise of modern day Mosul. I think that Mosul will fall soon by a flood and by the same three armies that wiped out Nineveh.

Since I wrote this I have learned that the dam just north of Mosul is very unstable and requires continuous maintenance. The capture of the dam by ISIS and the recapture of the dam by the Kurds has disrupted its maintenance schedule. In 2007 the Army Corp of Engineers declared it the most dangerous dam in the world. If Mosul falls I will count back forty days to see what significant event may have happened on that day.

Speaking of significant events, It could be that Jesus will destroy Mosul with a flood of water forty days after he returns for the Rapture. The book of Nahum describes the same route that Jonah took to Nineveh. Jesus may return to the Golan Heights in a whirlwind of fire and then make his way to Mosul.

The Jews should appreciate how good they had it under the Ottoman Empire

The Jews should appreciate how good they had it under the Ottoman Empire

It is High Time to recognize that Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist

By Craig C. White

Convincing Christians that Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist is like watching a glacier melt; except it’s much slower. I told you about Erdogan nine years ago and only now am I seeing some Christians beginning to consider the possibility that Erdogan is the Antichrist. Even now they still can’t grasp it.

Erdogan is the Antichrist. Not only does he intend to revive the Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire but he has threatened to conquer Jerusalem for Islam. Both of these things are foretold in the Bible. Erdogan is the “chief prince” or primary governor among the provinces of Turkey mentioned in Ezekiel 38:1-3. According to Ezekiel he will lead the Islamic nations into Israel. According to Daniel 11:40 the Antichrist will invade Egypt by “many ships”. Turkey has begun building a large naval personnel carrier. Erdogan has vowed to reinstate Muslim Brotherhood leadership back into power in Egypt. Jeremiah 49:23-27 describes an invasion into northwestern Syria at Hamah and Tell Rifaat. The Turkish Army is gathered against Hamah and Tell Rifaat right now. According to Jeremiah after Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear reports of a coming invasion then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. There is yet more evidence that Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist.

In response to riots on the Temple Mount Turkish President Erdogan said that “Palestine’s problems began with the fall of the Ottoman Empire.” So Erdogan’s prescribed solution to the Israeli and Palestinian problem is for Turkey to once again rule over Israel. I am here to tell you that Erdogan will get his wish.

Turkey’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said, “The Jews should appreciate how good they had it under the Ottoman Empire”. He said that life was better for the Jews before the Jewish state. So the idea of Turkish rule over Israel is now being openly promoted.

Turkish President Erdogan wants to reestablish the Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire. This is the head that was wounded and healed in Revelation 13:3. The head represents the last world empire that was defeated but then revived during the end time.

Revelation 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.

The revived Ottoman Empire is the end time world empire that will sorely oppress Israel. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist.
