What to expect in 2019 in Bible prophecy

Watch as Craig C White chats with Shane Brown about end time events that are happening now and how Turkey is fulfilling Bible prophecy in Syria.

Real Bible prophecy happening in Syria. The Prophet Jeremiah tells us that when the northwestern Syria cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports and are terrified then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed.

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.

Al-Qaeda from Idlib is now terrifying the residents of Hamah and northern Aleppo near Tell Rifaat. There are fears that the Syrian Army will respond. The Turkish Army is also amassed near Hamah and Tell Rifaat with intentions to attack. I think that the Turkish Army will join Al-Qaeda to attack the Syrian Army and the Kurds in Hamah and Tell Rifaat.

We can observe the day that Jesus Christ returns by watching the Turkish Army march towards Damascus and then southward on to the Golan Heights. Jesus will return to stop a Turkish led invasion into northern Israel. Jesus will also gather Christians at that time. The seven year long Tribulation period will begin after Jesus returns. The Resurrection and Rapture are near!

Prepare yourself to meet Jesus! Believe me, you can see him coming!

The nations are disquieted over Syria

The nations are disquieted over Syria

verse by verse through Jeremiah 49:23-27

By Craig C. White

According to the Prophet Jeremiah the destruction of Damascus begins at Hamah and Arpad. The Turkish Army is amassed near Hamah and Arpad right now!

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 goes on to say that after the Syrian towns of Hamah and Arpad hear reports of a coming invasion then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. Today the Syrian town of Apad is called Tell Rifaat.

The Prophet Jeremiah asks the question “How is Damascus not there?”. Damascus is the oldest continually inhabited city in the world. One day it will no longer exist.

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.

What is Jeremiah telling us? Obviously this prophecy is concerning Damascus, Syria. In the verse above, Jeremiah mentions two cities. Hamath and Arpad (or modern day Tell Rifaat) are both located in northwestern Syria near the Turkish border. Today Hamah is Syria’s fifth largest city.. Hamah is further south but still close to the Turkish border. Arpad is modern day Tell Rifaat located about 25 miles north of Aleppo and about 20 miles south of the Turkish border. These cities are located along the path of an invasion launched from Turkey headed towards Damascus.

According to Jeremiah 49:23 the people of northwestern Syria will hear intelligence reports that the Turkish army is about to invade Syria. The army’s target is Damascus and they are coming through their cities! The people of northwestern Syria are terrified. Their hearts faint with fear

There is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet. The sea in Bible prophecy can refer to the Mediterranean Sea when it is accompanied with the definite article “the”. The sea can also refer to the nations. There is no article used here in the original Hebrew. I think that Jeremiah is saying that the nations will have great anxiety over the coming Turkish invasion into Syria. The Hebrew word translated sorrow means anxiety, fearfulness, carefulness, or heaviness.

So the nations will be very nervous concerning the coming Turkish invasion into Syria. The Turkish army’s goal is the destruction of Damascus. The English says it well here. The nations will not be able to be still. The Hebrew word translated quiet is defined below. The nations of the world will not be able to be at rest. They are already feeling uneasy concerning Syria.

quiet – shâqat, shaw-kat’

A primitive root; to repose (usually figuratively): – appease, idleness, (at, be at, be in, give) quiet (-ness), (be at, be in, give, have, take) rest, settle, be still.

Jeremiah 49:24 Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail.

Damascus is waxed feeble. This is the idea of failing in your old age. Damascus is about to die. Damascus turneth herself to flee. This could refer to the city preparing to relinquish its life and it could also refer to the cities inhabitants as they attempt to escape.

The Hebrew word translated fear means to tremble with terror. Anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail; literally Damascus is feeling a localized tightness like a woman about to give birth.

Jeremiah 49:25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!

Two different Hebrew words for city are used in the verse above. The city of praise is a fortified city that has been celebrated in song. When God says “how is the city not left” he could be communicating his astonishment that even after a terrible assault on Damascus, the city has still not surrendered. When God calls Damascus “the city of my joy!” he is specifically saying that he delights in the cities old buildings. So we are looking for the destruction of the old part of the city. The neighborhood of “Old Damascus” is the capital of Syria. Damascus is the oldest continually inhabited city on earth. It was founded by the Aramaeans over four thousand years ago, and was inhabited two thousand years before that. Damascus is a living depiction of human history.

Jeremiah 49:26 Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the LORD of hosts.

In this verse the young men are contrasted to the men of war. The men of war obviously represent the Syrian Army. Lately Syrian citizens have joined Assad and the Syrian Army to help defend their country. The Syrian National Defense Force is a newly formed civilian guard. I think that the Syrian National Defense Force could be represented by the young men in this verse.

It sounds like the young men of Damascus will stay behind to defend the city. Perhaps they will be the first line of defense. The young men of Damascus will die in its streets. The Syrian Army will be bunkered in Damascus. When God says that all the men of war shall be cut off he means that every Syrian soldier will die defending Damascus.. Jeremiah isn’t necessarily saying that this assault on Damascus will last only one day. That day refers to the entire duration be it one day or longer.

Jeremiah 49:27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad.

The phrase “kindle a fire” leads many to imagine a nuclear explosion but that is not what is pictured here. The terminology “kindle a fire” is used in several other Bible passages. The terminology “kindle a fire” mean that God will send an army against a city or a nation. I think that God will send the Turkish army against Damascus.

Many so called Bible scholars claim that the destruction of Damascus has already taken place. They say that the Assyrian conquest of Damascus in 734 BC fulfills the Damascus prophecy. Well Damascus was conquered by Assyria in 734 BC and several cities around Damascus were burned with fire but Damascus has never been completely destroyed.

Jeremiah was a prophet around 600 BC. Jeremiah gave his prophecy one hundred years after Assyria conquered Damascus. So the Assyrian conquest of Damascus can not possibly fulfill Jeremiah’s prophecy. The Assyrians conquered Damascus in 734 BC. I think that Jeremiah is prophesying about an invasion of Damascus that is forming now.

In Jeremiah 49:27, The palaces of Benhadad refer to the ancient thrones of Syrian Kings in Damascus. Like the ancient invasion, this future invasion will also destroy Syria’s seat of government in the neighborhood of Old Damascus.

So the Turkish army will march down from Syria’s northwestern border terrorizing cities along the way. Their goal is the destruction of Damascus. The nations of the world will be in a tumult. They will not be able to calm down. Damascus will prepare to die. The people will flee and the young men and army will fight to the death never surrendering. The oldest city on earth will be destroyed along with its historical buildings. Jeremiah describes a city under siege not a city obliterated by a single bomb.

Nahum 1:4 Map – Bashan Carmel and Lebanon

Nahum 1:4 Map

Bashan Carmel and Lebanon

By Craig C. White

Why are the areas around Damascus and the Golan Heights mentioned in conjunction with the flooding and judgment of ancient Nineveh? Nineveh was destroyed with a flood in 612 BC. Today Mosul in northern Iraq is built around the ruins of ancient Nineveh. The Prophet Nahum predicted the flooding of Nineveh he may also predict the flooding of ISIS in Mosul! In Nahum it seems that Jesus Christ will personally judge ISIS in Mosul.

Nahum 1:3 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.

While describing the flooding of Nineveh the Prophet Nahum also mentions these other places; Bashan, Carmel, and Lebanon. Is it possible that Jesus will judge these places in person when he comes to collect his Church at the Rapture?

Nahum 1:4 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.

It is interesting to note that all of these places are the scenes of end time events that I believe will happen around the same time. I think that the flooding of Mosul (Nahum), and the destruction of Damascus (Jer 49:23-27), and the following Turkish led invasion into (northern) Israel (Eze 38) will all happen just before the Tribulation begins. The scene is set for all of these events to happen now!

Nahum also says that as the Lord comes in his anger that he knows who belongs to him (Nahum 1:7). Could this be describing the Rapture?

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!

It’s High Time to gain a mature understanding of Matthew chapter 24

It’s High Time to gain a mature understanding of Matthew chapter 24

Trust me it’s better to figure this out now than after you meet Jesus

By Craig C. White

Matthew chapter 24 has nothing to do with the Church or with the Rapture. Matthew chapter 24 is directed to Jerusalem and Judea during their seven years of Tribulation. One Jew in Jerusalem will be taken away as prisoner and the other left when the Antichrist attacks Jerusalem. Earthquakes, wars, and famines are signs that happen during the first half of the Tribulation. They are signs to Israel that their great tribulation is about to begin.

The days of Noah do not apply to pre-tribulation or pre-rapture events. Like Noah’s generation was taken away suddenly, the Jews in Jerusalem will be overtaken suddenly by the armies of the Antichrist. Nobody knows the day and hour that the Antichrist will attack Jerusalem and Judea. That’s why Jesus told the residents of Jerusalem to watch.

Applying Matthew chapter 24 to the Church is a recent popular development. Throughout Church history Bible scholars have firmly understood that Jesus is talking to and about the Jews living in Jerusalem and Judea. Even today real Bible scholars understand this. Unfortunately they are few and far between. It is very apparent that Jesus is addressing the Jews if only you read the chapter without popular bias.

Yes we are in the last days but Matthew chapter 24 doesn’t apply now. In fact, the Rapture of the Church will happen before the beginning of sorrows mentioned in Matthew 24. It’s High Time to gain a mature understanding of the Scriptures. It’s High Time to Awake!

It's High Time to gain a mature understanding of Matthew chapter 24
