Gog is Turkey! Magog is it’s Leader!

Gog is Turkey! Magog is it’s Leader!

From my house I can’t see Russia

By Craig C. White

Bible prophecy teachers say that Magog in Ezekiel 38 refers to Russia. But from my house I can’t see Russia! That view of Magog came about by transcribing “chief” (or the Hebrew word “rosh”) to mean Russia. Transposing Hebrew words into English phonetic equivalents is not proper Bible prophecy interpretation technique. That technique is not used elsewhere to interpret Bible prophecy. Rosh means first or primary. Magog is a man who settled in the land of modern day Turkey.

Eze 38:1-3 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

Verse 2 tells us that Magog is the “chief prince” (or most prominent governor) among his brothers Meshech and Tubal. So Noah had a son named Japheth who had a son named Magog who settled Turkey. Gog is a shortened version of Magog.

This isn’t the first passage where Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are found. Let’s look at Genesis 10:1-3.

Gen 10:1-3  Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.  2  The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.  3  And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

Jeepers, all those weird names are listed in that short passage! Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are people. As a matter of fact they are relatives. Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are brothers. Togarmah is Gomer’s son. They are among the first families to resettle the world after the devastation of Noah’s flood. They all settled together in today’s Turkey. Isn’t Bible prophecy fun!

Today Turkey has a leader that fits the Magog profile. His name is Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. He became Prime Minister of Turkey in 2003. He is a devout Muslim and has an ingrained animosity toward Israel. He also has a volatile disposition. He has been over-zealous in his public hatred and provocation toward Israel. While most Middle Eastern despots are being besieged and exiled, Prime Minister Erdoğan is popular and gaining in popularity.

Ezekiel 38:5 tells us that Turkey will lead Iran, Libya, and Sudan in an invasion into Israel. All of these armies are fighting in Syria today! Turkey will invade Syria and then lead an invasion into Israel!

Turkey and Libya Maritime agreement

Turkey and Libya Maritime agreement

Turkey exposes it’s Ottoman expansionist ambitions

By Craig C. White

Over the past couple of years Turkey has forced a lot of disputation over oil drilling rights in the eastern Mediterranean. Turkey has sent their ships to drill around Cypress and the Greek Isles claiming it as their own territory. Luckily all that has been solved. This week Turkey and Libya have passed a new maritime agreement. The Turkish Parliament has ratified and enacted an official maritime boundary map that gives them the rights to Greek and Cypress waters. The map also seems to give Libya the rights to Egypt, Israel, and Lebanon waters.

In reaction to the new Turkey and Libya maritime agreement Greece is expelling the Libyan ambassador. Egypt called the agreement “illegal”. Before you conclude that this maritime agreement is dead in the water; on Friday December 6, 2019 Turkish President Erdogan sent the new boundary map to the UN for international approval. This new maritime map justifies Turkish aggression towards Greece, Cypress, Egypt, and even Israel. I hope that it isn’t lost on you that these are the areas that would complete a revived Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire. A revived Ottoman Empire is the beast who’s head was wounded and then healed in Revelation 13:3.

Now let’s learn something from the Bible. In Daniel chapter 11 we are told that the Antichrist will attack Egypt by many ships. There is no dispute between Bible teachers that the king of the south represents Egypt. I am here to tell you that the king of the north represents Turkey. That would make them the king of the south Mediterranean and the king of the north Mediterranean.

Dan 11:40-43 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. 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. 42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

In the last verse we see that Libya will be allied with Turkey, the king of the north. Turkey and Libya are in cahoots today. Libya is fighting alongside of Turkey in Syria. The Free Syrian Army was created in Libya by Libyans. It is named the “Free Syrian Army” because their goal is to conquer Syria. There aren’t any Syrian soldiers in the Free Syrian Army. Ethiopia is also mentioned. The name “Cush” is translated as Ethiopia in the Bible. Cush is one of Noah’s grandsons. Cush settled in the land south of Egypt. Today Sudan is located south of Egypt. Whenever you read the name Ethiopia in the Bible, you can be assured that it really refers to Sudan. Turkey is also in cahoots with Sudan. Turkey is rebuilding an Ottoman era naval base off of the coast of Sudan.

Residue of a Remnant

Residue of a Remnant

Zechariah 14:2

By Craig C. White

The English Bible uses the word “remnant”. Remnant most interestingly refers to a small part that is left of the whole nation of Israel after God judges them.

One Hebrew word for “remnant” is:

sheh-ay-reeth’
a remainder or residual (surviving, final) portion: – that had escaped, be left, posterity, remain (-der), remnant, residue, rest.

Here is “remnant” used in a verse.

2Ch 30:6 So the posts went with the letters from the king and his princes throughout all Israel and Judah, and according to the commandment of the king, saying, Ye children of Israel, turn again unto the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and he will return to the remnant of you, that are escaped out of the hand of the kings of Assyria.

This is talking about the Jews who did not get captured by the Assyrian kings around 700 BC. A few Jews were still left in the land of Israel.

There is an even more interesting word used in the English Bible, “Residue”! Residue can mean an even smaller group of people!

yeh’-ther
Properly an overhanging, that is, (by implication) an excess, superiority, remainder; also a small rope (as hanging free): – + abundant, cord, exceeding, excellency (-ent), what they leave, that hath left, plentifully, remnant, residue, rest, string, with.

Here is “residue” used in a verse.

Zechariah 14:2 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.

In the verse above “residue” refers to the few inhabitants of Jerusalem who do not flee but stay behind in the city and are hunkered on Mt. Zion until the end of the Tribulation.

Here are the two words used together in the same verse.

Zephaniah 2:9 Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.

In the verse above “the residue of my people” are the people of Judea who have fled into the Jordanian wilderness during the Tribulation. When Jesus returns they will plunder Jordan.

Also in the verse above “the remnant of my people” includes every Jew who has survived the Tribulation!

The residue is only part of the remnant.

The events of the coming seven year Tribulation period crescendo into a pinnacle of trial for the nation of Israel, and also into a moment in time when the trials are over and redemption comes to Israel at last and forever. Jesus Christ will return to save Israel from its enemies.

At the epicenter of this moment between trouble and salvation sits a small band of Jews waiting for their redeemer on Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. They are the last Jews in Jerusalem. They are the residue of Jerusalem in Zechariah 14:2.

You probably haven’t thought about it much but understanding that moment in time when the residue of Jerusalem is rescued by Jesus Christ will illuminate much of what Jesus said in the Gospels.

In the English Bible several Hebrew words are translated as “remnant” and “residue”. Sometimes the English word for remnant and residue are the same Hebrew word.

Before the Great Tribulation

Before the Great Tribulation

The Antichrist will invade Egypt then Israel.

Daniel 11:40-45

By Craig C. White

There is a movement in Northern Africa and the Middle East to bring the region under an Islamist umbrella. Egypt has loosed the bands of the Muslim Brotherhood for now, but ultimately Egypt will not escape. During the first half of the seven year Tribulation period Turkey will conquer Egypt!

Antiochus Epiphanies was the king over one quarter of the Grecian Empire headquartered in Syria. Antiochus Epiphanies is a forerunner and type of the Antichrist. The Antichrist will do many of the same things that Antiochus Epiphanies did.

Ezekiel 39:1 identifies the Prime Minister (chief prince) of Turkey as the future invader of Israel. Ezekiel chapter 39 describes the battle of Armageddon led by the Antichrist. So a Turkish Prime Minister will be the Antichrist. The battle of Armageddon happens at the end of the seven year Tribulation period.

Daniel chapter 11 describes an invasion into Egypt and then into Israel that happened in 167 BC led by Antiochus Epiphanies. I think that Daniel chapter 11 also predicts a future invasion of Egypt and then Israel led by the Antichrist. This isn’t the battle of Armageddon. Instead it is the attack that begins the Great Tribulation (Mat 24:21). This invasion into Egypt and then Israel happens in the middle of the seven year Tribulation period. In Daniel 11 below, the king of the south is Egypt. The king of the north is Turkey in this future invasion into Egypt and then into Israel!

Dan 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. 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.

So Turkey will invade Egypt and even come into Israel (the glorious land). It sounds like Turkey will conquer all of Northern Africa and the Middle East except for Jordan. Edom, Moab, and Ammon all represent today’s Jordan.

Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

The Antichrist (Turkish Prime Minister) will loot Egypt of its treasures. Turkey will be joined in its conquests by Libya and Sudan.

Dan 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

Remember that this account refers to two separate invasions of Egypt and then Israel. In 167 BC Antiochus Epiphanies heard news of a Jewish effort to take control of the temple in Jerusalem. He then invaded Israel to stop it. Turkey will invade Egypt in the future led by the Antichrist. He will probably also hear news from Jerusalem concerning the newly built temple.

Here is a historical account of Antiochus Epiphanies’ attack on Israel in 167 BC. The Turkish Antichrist will attack Israel in much the same way.

2 Maccabees 5:11–14 When these happenings were reported to the king, he thought that Judea was in revolt. Raging like a wild animal, he set out from Egypt and took Jerusalem by storm. He ordered his soldiers to cut down without mercy those whom they met and to slay those who took refuge in their houses. There was a massacre of young and old, a killing of women and children, a slaughter of virgins and infants. In the space of three days, eighty thousand were lost, forty thousand meeting a violent death, and the same number being sold into slavery.

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 seas described in this verse are typically thought to be the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea. Jerusalem is between the two seas. The glorious holy mountain is thought to be Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. But please allow me to point out that Turkish President Erdogan has already built his massive palace on top of one of Turkey’s holy mountains in Turkey’s capital city of Ankara. Erdogan’s palace is located between the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, and the Caspian Sea.

In 167 BC Antiochus Epiphanies took-over the temple in Jerusalem and declared that he should be worshiped as god. In the future the Antichrist will take-over the temple in Jerusalem and declare that he should be worshiped there. This verse reflects the desecration of the temple spoken of in Dan 12:11 and referenced in Mat 24:15-16. When the Jews around Jerusalem see the Antichrist claiming to be god in the temple at Jerusalem then they are instructed to flee to the hills of Jordan!

In the middle of the Tribulation the Antichrist will attack Israel. This begins Jerusalem’s Great Tribulation (Mat 24:21)! Just before his armies invade Israel they will invade Egypt and carry away their treasures. So when Israel sees Turkey invade Egypt they will have an advanced warning that they will be attacked next!

Today Egypt has seemingly avoided a Muslim Brotherhood takeover but in the end the entire Middle East and northern Africa will be under the control of the Antichrist.

PS: Daniel chapter 11 doesn’t describe the other Turkish led invasion into Israel that is described in Ezekiel chapter 38. Turkey will first invade Syria and destroy Damascus. Then Turkey will lead Iran, Sudan, and Libya into Israel. All of these forces are fighting in Syria today! I think that this invasion could begin in 2017!

Life after the Tribulation

Life after the Tribulation

One hundred and done

Isaiah 65:20

By Craig C. White

I shared this passage about life after the Tribulation period with a class of about 40 well-read Bible students. Nobody had heard of it. Naturally they thought I was nuts. Don’t worry, I am used to it.

In life after the 7 year Tribulation period Jesus Christ will rule on earth in Jerusalem. Individuals will have one hundred years to trust in Jesus for remission of sin. If they don’t submit to God by age one hundred they are doomed to perdition (hell).

Isaiah 65:20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

This passage is contrasting the difference in day to day life between Tribulation period, and post Tribulation Israel. OK folks, here is something that is quite different. Literally; There shall no longer be accomplished there at that time a baby of a few days old (or a baby will not die as an infant), nor an old man who has not fulfilled his own days (an old man will not die before his entire natural life span is complete). During the Tribulation period many babies and old men will be killed in Israel. It will be different in the days following the Tribulation. Literally; the young (pre-adolescent) child shall die when he is one hundred years old. Wow, this seems to be saying that it will take over one hundred years for a child to reach adolescence. Perhaps this was the way of life after Eden? If we take a more figurative view (although I don’t see any reason to do so) perhaps this passage is saying that a one hundred year life span will be considered very short. Let me state the obvious. Children will be born during Christ’s reign on earth. Literally; but the person who misses the mark when they reach one hundred years of age shall be brought into contempt. If a person doesn’t honor God by the time they reach one hundred years old they will be judged by being sent to the lake of fire.

I think that Isaiah is describing the youthful eternal life that believers in Jesus Christ will enjoy after his second coming. Isaiah also describes the terrible fate of those who rebel against God over their long lifetime. Isaiah 65:20 specifically describes the populous in Jerusalem.

By the way, I am still waiting and praying for some dear people that I know who are approaching the age of one hundred to turn to God.
