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!

Jihadists flood into Hamah from the Turkish border

Jihadists flood into Hamah from the Turkish border

The biblical battle for Hamah precedes the destruction of Damascus

By Craig C. White

Jihadists flood into Hamah from the Turkish border

July 1, 2019 SYRIA: Turkish supported jihadists have been redeployed into northwestern Hamah from the Turkish border to fight the Syrian Army. This creates another front in the fight against the Syrian Army in Hamah.

The Prophet Jeremiah predicts a fight against Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria. The Turkish Army already surrounds the Kurdish held city of Tell Rifaat. The Turkish Army has also established twelve military posts in the Idlib province. Many of these posts border the Hamah province. In Idlib Several Al-Qaeda rebel groups have united under Turkish leadership. They are already fighting against the Syrian Army in Hamah. Ultimately I expect that the Turkish Army will lead all of these rebel groups against the Syrian Army in Hamah. Afterwards they will march southwards to destroy Damascus.

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.

The destruction of Damascus, invasion into Israel, and return of Jesus are near!

By Craig C. White

Turkey has created a new “National Army” in Syria. Most of these forces are foreign Sunni Al-Qaeda fighters from Libya and Sudan but also include Sunni Al-Qaeda fighters from Syria as well as Syrian Turkmen plus a few Syrian Kurds.

Ezekiel chapter 38 describes Turkey as they lead Iran, Libya, and Sudan “and many people with them” into Israel.

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

Please notice that these nations have now formed a coalition under Turkish direction. Turkey is leading these nations and not Russia. So many Bible teachers say that Russia will lead the Ezekiel chapter 38 invasion into Israel but they are incorrect. It has been so very easy to see that these Sunni Muslim fighters have been aligned with Turkey all along. Russia has approved the formation of this new “National Army” provided that they do not fight against the Syrian Army. My question is, who else is there to fight against? This pushes the Turkish Army towards direct military conflict with the Syrian Army.

Iran is also fighting in Syria on behalf of the Assad regime. At some point we should expect Iran to also side with Turkey.

Just so that you know, Jeremiah 49:23-27 describes Turkey as they attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria and then destroy Damascus. I think that after Turkey destroys Damascus then they will lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into the Golan Heights of Israel.

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.

Right now the Turkish Army is amassed in northwestern Syria near Hamah and Tell Rifaat just like Jeremiah describes. I have been telling folks about these inevitable developments since the beginning of the Syrian war. Where are my fellow Bible teachers searching these things out?

The Ezekiel chapter 38 invasion into Israel and the Jeremiah 49:23-27 destruction of Damascus are major Bible prophecy themes. I say that they mark the last days before the seven year long Tribulation period and also the resurrection and Rapture of Christians.

The nations that are listed in Ezekiel chapter 38 have been fighting in Syria for the past seven years. Now they have united under Turkey leadership. So I ask you; where are the Christian voices warning about these obvious developments?

By the way, I think that Jesus will return to turn back the Turkish led invasion when the Turkish Army reaches the Golan Heights of Israel. You are only hearing about the near time Turkish led destruction of Damascus and invasion into northern Israel here at hightimetoawake.com.

This verse was written to Church age believers.

Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

There is no reason that Jesus Christ should come upon you as a thief in the night unless you neglect to watch. Unfortunately, almost nobody has awoken even after seven years of being warned.

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.

2019 Bible Prophecy Timeline

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!

Jonah followed the same path that Jesus will take

Jonah followed the same path that Jesus will take

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.
