Understanding Idlib

Understanding Idlib

Bible prophecy at our doorstep

By Craig C. White

Understanding Idlib

The Turkish Army is supporting multiple Al-Qaeda rebel groups in the Idlib province of northwestern Syria. These rebels are the last remaining opposition to the Assad regime. These Turkish supported forces are fighting against the Syrian Army in the adjoining Hamah province. Russia is supporting the Syrian Army and the US is politically supporting Turkey’s role in northwestern Syria. The battle for northwestern Syria has become an international hot potato.

Fighting between the Syrian Army and the Al-Qaeda rebels on the Hamah and Idlib border has intensified over the past few months. The Turkish Army has set up twelve military outposts in Idlib and has continually reinforced its positions over the past year and a half. Recently the Turkish Army has been drawn into direct conflict with the Syrian Army. It looks like things are going to get worse.

Now it’s time for the Biblical perspective. The Prophet Jeremiah says that when Hamah hears evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. It’s High Time to Awake and study Bible prophecy!

Kir is Kerak – Damascus refugees will soon flee to Kerak, Jordan!

Kir is Kerak

Damascus refugees will soon flee to Kerak, Jordan!

Damascus refugees will soon flee to Kerak, Jordan!

By Craig C. White

The Prophet Amos condemned Damascus. He said that God would send an army against Damascus and that the Syrian people would become refugees in Jordan. This prophecy was fulfilled when Tiglath-pileser the Assyrian king conquered Damascus (734 B.C.) and carried the Syrian (Aramean) captives away to Kir (mountainous region in western Jordan). However, like many bible prophecies this may also refer to a current event. Today the city of Kir in Jordan is called Kerak. Kerak is in south western Jordan east of the Dead Sea. It has a population of about 20,000. Not including the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees already there.The citizens of Kerak are poor and mostly Christian. By the way Kerak is in the Moab region of Jordan and is very likely where the Judean refugees will flee during Jerusalem’s Great Tribulation!

There are about 600,000 Syrian refugees in western Jordan today. This is further evidence that the destruction of Damascus as described in the bible is eminent. It is also evidence that the God of Israel is the one true God and that we all had better heed his word and we had also better humble ourselves before him while there is still time! In Amos 1:5 the plain of Aven is a valley in the northeast part of Lebanon near the Syrian border. Today it is called the Bekaa valley. It has been suggested that Saddam Hussein hid WMD’s here before the invasion of Iraq.

Amo 1:3-5 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron: 4 But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael, which shall devour the palaces of Benhadad. 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.

God used the terminology to send a fire to mean that the Assyrian army would besiege the city. Just as the ancient Assyrians assaulted the city in 734 BC, I think that the Turkish army will do likewise soon. The palaces of Benhadad refer to the ancient thrones of Syrian Kings in Damascus. Like the ancient invasion, this future invasion will also destroy Damascus’ seat of government in the old part of Damascus.

Tens of thousands of Syrians have already taken refuge in Kir (or Kerak) in western Jordan. Many more will join them as Damascus flees. Bible prophecies are coming true. There is a terrible time of Satan’s anger and of God’s judgement coming on all of the world. It is High Time to surrender your soul into God’s care.

Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 also predict the destruction of Damascus, Syria. They both offer details that can be observed today!

Breaking news: Turkey vs Syria war is beginning!

Breaking news: Turkey vs Syria war is beginning!

Turkish troops hit in Syria. Turkey retaliates against Syrian Army. US will support Turkey in Syria.

By Craig C. White

February 27:2020, Idlib Syria: Turkish officials said that the Syrian Army carried out an attack that killed at least 33 Turkish soldiers and wounded another 30.

Russia is providing the Syrian military with air support. So there are fears that Turkey and Russia may come into direct conflict. Frankly, I think that Russia will back down from fighting the Turkish Army. Russia has grown overly dependent on Turkey. Russia relies on Turkey for their shipping lanes through the Bosporus. Russia and Turkey just opened the TurkStream natural gas pipeline that runs from Russia to Turkey. Russia also recently sold their S-400 anti-aircraft missile system toTurkey. Russia tepidly supports the Assad regime. As long as Russia gets to keep their warm water shipping port in Latakia on Syria’s Mediterranean coast then Russia will likely be willing to deal with a new regime. This is bound to become tumultuous but in the end I don’t think that Turkey and Russia will go to war.

Turkey is now retaliating against the Syrian Army. Turkish officials said “All known” Syrian government targets are under fire by Turkish air and land support units.

The US will support Turkey in Syria. US Permanent Representative to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison said that the US is allied with Turkey and not with Russia in Syria and didn’t rule out a larger role for the US in Syria helping Turkey to fight against the Assad regime. This could bring the US directly against the Russian Air-force. Some difficult decisions will have to be made.

The Prophet Jeremiah says that when Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. Tell Rifaat is called Arpad in the following verse.

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.

Turkey is now retaliating against the Syrian Army which is based in Hamah. Turkey is also shelling the Kurds in Tell Rifaat. Turkish President Erdogan called an emergency government meeting in Ankara Thursday night. It is expected that Turkey will officially declare war against the Syrian Army.

February 29, 2020: Turkey is sending terrorists into Greece and calling them refugees.Turkish President Erdogan is blackmailing Europe by sending thousands of jihadis into Greece. These are not helpless refugees. They are young men of fighting age. They are already looting and burning Greece. Europe will be forced to support Erdogan as he attacks the Assad regime.

Erdogan told Putin in a phone call to stand aside and let Turkey “do what is necessary” with the Syrian government. I think that Russia will ultimately stand aside. That news would certainly qualify as the evil tidings that Jeremiah 49:23 describes. The news that Russia will no longer fight on Syria’s behalf would send shivers all the way to Damascus.

Look for an Islamic Union represented by a leopard!

Look for an Islamic Union represented by a leopard!

Leopard Islamic UnionThe new Ottoman Empire!

By Craig C. White

Today we live in a very evil time. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced his plans for the formation of a new Islamic Union covering North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia. Erdogan wants to reconstitute the Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire. This Union is most certainly the leopard that is described in Daniel 7:6. According to Daniel chapter 7 this Islamic Union (or leopard) will unite together with the European Union, and the newly formed Russian Union to comprise the next World Empire. Like I said Russia has already begun the formation of its end time Union. This Russian Union is described as a bear in Daniel 7:5.

Islamic Union

In Daniel chapter seven the new Union is represented by a leopard with four heads and also four wings. I have been expecting to see the formation of an eight nation confederacy but this new Union may instead be composed of eight tribal regions. The leadership of this new Union may even be composed of Islamic terrorist organizations. Turkey has been in league with Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah leadership. In Daniel chapter 7 this new Union will even be given legitimate political status on the world stage.

Daniel 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

Once this Islamic Union is formed and certainly signified as a leopard then we are only a treaty away from the creation of the end time World Empire that will oppress Israel and then be destroyed at Jesus Christ’s second coming! Throughout world history the nation of Israel has suffered terribly under the rule of every past World Empire. Israel will suffer its greatest tribulation under the next World Empire.

Erdogan has already shunned Saudi Arabia; singling the nation out as the enemy of the new Turkish led Islamic Union. This makes perfect biblical sense. As I read the bible it indicates that during the Tribulation Iran and the Kurds will destroy an Arabic city known as “Mystery Babylon” in Revelation 17:5. I think that city is Dubai. Saudi Arabia is Iran’s most reviled enemy.

I wrote my commentary titled “The Leopard is Upon Us!” way back in 2011. Since then the identity of the four primary nations of the leopard in Daniel 7:6 has become more apparent. In November 2014 then Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan announced his plans to form a new Islamic Union. I think that the first four nations to be included in this Union will be Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. These are the same four nations that Revelation 9:13-16 identifies as being located along the Euphrates River. During the first half of the seven year Tribulation period these four nations along with four other secondary nations (or perhaps four Terrorist organizations) will conquer most of the Middle East, Northern Africa, and Central Asia. Please read my commentary titled World War III.

Rev 9:13-16 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

Now President Erdogan has made his intentions of forming a Turkish ruled revived Ottoman Empire with him as it’s Sultan very clear! The first nation to fall to Erdogan and to the Turkish Army will be Syria. After Damascus is destroyed and Syria is conquered then Erdogan will install Muslim Brotherhood leadership there! Then the leopard (or Islamic Union) will be formed.

Some bible teachers are looking for a ten nation or ten king confederacy ruling over this new Islamic Union. But the bible doesn’t describe a ten king Islamic Union (or leopard). Instead it describes a ten king World Empire. When the EU, Russia, and the new Islamic Union combine then they will be ruled over by ten kings!

The sun has been shining since Jesus Christ’s resurrection. The light of the gospel has shined throughout the world. But now we can see the sun sinking low in the sky. It has been High Time to Awake but soon the sun will set when no man can work!

Erdogan is about to declare war against Syria

Erdogan is about to declare war against Syria

fulfilling Jeremiah 49:23

By Craig C. White

Hostilities and war rhetoric have been escalating in Syria. Idlib Province is the last bastion of anti-government rebel groups in Syria. Syrian President Assad has vowed to bring all of Idlib Province back under regime control. Lately the Syrian Army has been making gains in Idlib. Turkey is the major supporter of these typically Al-Qaeda rebel groups in Idlib. The Turkish Army has established thirteen military outposts in Idlib which puts them in the midst of the fighting between the Syrian Army and Al-Qaeda. On February 3, 2020 the Syrian Army and the Turkish Army exchanged shelling killing soldiers on both sides. This is the first time that these two nations have been in direct conflict during the Syrian war.

Since this skirmish Turkey has threatened full scale military action against the Syrian Army in Idlib. “Turkey may launch a military operation in Syria’s northwestern Idlib region unless fighting there is quickly halted”, said Turkish President Erdogan. Erdogan has also criticized Russia for providing air-support for the Syrian Army. Turkey has sent several large military convoys into Idlib this week containing troops and tanks and heavy weapons.

The Syrian Army is fighting from it’s base of operations in the government controlled Hamah Province. If and when Turkey declares war against the Syrian Army we shouldn’t expect the fighting to be confined to Idlib. Turkish President Erdogan told his citizens this week that the Turkish Army will move freely around Syria. Erdogan said that Turkey will push the Syrian Army back completely out of Idlib Province and then back further into Hamah Province to previously agreed upon safe zone boundaries. This will require an all out Turkish offensive considering the fact that the Syrian Army has regained control over several Idlib towns. This will also require Russian consent or at least passivity. So far Russia has remained passive regarding the Turkish and Syrian skirmish. Russia can’t afford to offend Turkey with whom they have made recent major energy and defense deals with. US President Trump has shown his support for Turkey when it comes to defending Idlib and when it comes to ousting Assad from power in Damascus. So I wouldn’t expect to see anybody try to stop Turkey.

Turkey is preparing for a major offensive against the Syrian Army. President Erdogan is already disclosing his intentions to fight outside of Idlib. If Erdogan declares war against Syria he would be fulfilling this Bible verse.

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.

Jeremiah 49:23-27 describes a Turkish assault on northwestern Syria and the subsequent destruction of Damascus. When Hamah hears about this coming invasion then the residents of Damascus will flee. Turkey will push the Syrian Army all the way to Damascus. The very real fulfillment of Bible prophecy is a hair breadth away. It is High Time to Awake!
