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.

Elam does not always refer to Iran in the Bible

Elam does not always refer to Iran in the Bible

Sometimes it refers to the kingdom of Elam before it was absorbed by Persia

By Craig C. White

As a Bible prophecy student you may run across these verses in Jeremiah chapter 49. They describe the fate of Elam which often refers to Persia (or today’s Iran) in the Bible. Before you ascribe these verses to the end time fate of Iran please allow me to caution you. These verses don’t apply to Persia as a whole but to the smaller kingdom of ancient Elam.

Jeremiah 49:34-39  The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying,  35  Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.  36  And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.  37  For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them:  38  And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.  39  But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD.

Even though the term Elam is now used to describe Persia (or Iran); Elam was originally a separate kingdom located along the Persian Gulf northwest of Persia. Around 600 BC Elam helped Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar to conquer Jerusalem and Judea.

Isaiah 22:6 And Elam bare the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield.

God proclaimed Elam’s punishment in Jeremiah 49:34-39 because Elam had lifted its hand against Judea. God promised that the nations from the four corners of the earth would attack Elam and scatter them all over. That is exactly what happened.

The Assyrian King Assurbanipal conducted a series of devastating assaults on Elam between 647 and 646 BC. Around 600 BC the Medes conquered an already weakened Elam. In 596 BC Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar attacked Elam. After 539 BC the Persian Empire conquered Elam. King Cyrus made Susa in Elam one of Persia’s capital cities. During these invasions the people of Elam were deported to Assyria, Israel, Media, Babylonia, and Persia.

Elam as an independent kingdom ceased to exist when it became a part of Persia. Since then the name Elam has been used to describe Persia at large. Jeremiah 49:39 says that in the latter days God will once again bring the people of Elam back into their own land. It seems likely that this will happen after Jesus Christ returns.

Elam was a separate kingdom from Persia. Elam was then attacked over a period of one hundred years by every neighboring nation. The people of Elam were carried away to every other nation until Elam as a kingdom ceased to exist. Persia finally took control over Elam and converted it into one of their capitals. The term Elam is often used to describe Persia (or Iran) in the Bible. But Jeremiah used it to describe the smaller kingdom of ancient Elam before it was absorbed by Persia. So this passage is not about God’s judgement towards modern day Iran.

Elam does not always refer to Iran

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.

Benny Gantz could be Israel’s idol shepherd

Benny Gantz could be Israel’s idol shepherd

Netanyahu at risk of losing position

Benny Gantz could be Israel's idol shepherd

By Craig C. White

After Israel’s third round of elections, Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin has determined that the election was too close to determine a clear winner. Prime Minister Netanyahu’s rival Benny Gantz has been given the first chance to form a government. Gantz won this opportunity by gaining the recommendation from the Joint List of the four largest Arab-majority parties in Israel. If Gantz hopes to successfully form a new government, he will need to include these Islamic parties.

Benny Gantz said that he is willing to form a unity government with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. That means that Netanyahu and Gantz would take turns being Prime Minister over Israel. But before you get too excited, some of Gantz’ party members have already said that this deal is off the table.

I find the possibility of a dual Prime Minister position interesting in light of the Prophet Zechariah. I think that Zechariah may indicate two Israeli leaders, one good and one rotten. The rotten leader will not care for his people while the good leader pleads for their well being.

Some reports have said that Benny Gantz is willing to allow Netanyahu to be sole leader. But the majority sentiment of Gantz’s Blue and White party seems to be against Netanyahu. Everything is up in the air. Netayahu and Gantz have set a Monday March 23rd deadline to form a coalition government. With all the political turmoil and mixed reports I would be surprised if they are successful. The other alternative is for Benny Gantz to form a new government including the Joint Arab List.

Zechariah says that there is an Israeli leader coming who will not look out for the welfare of his land or his people.

Magog is a Turkish ruler. Magog is not Russia!

Magog is a Turkish ruler. Magog is not Russia!

By Craig C. White

Who is “Magog” the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal? The word translated as “chief’ in Ezekiel 38:2 is the Hebrew word “rosh”. Is Magog really Russia as so many Bible teachers say? They say that the Hebrew word “rosh” means Russia. Rosh might sound a bit like Russia but the Hebrew word rosh means “first or primary”. Nowhere else in Bible prophecy is a verse interpreted by identifying an English homophone; or a word that sounds the same as another word. The Hebrew word “rosh” doesn’t identify a nation at all.

Ezekiel 38:1-6 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,

I am familiar with the view that Magog represents Russia. I like Hal Lindsey but he is wrong on this one. Ezekiel chapter 38 is about a Turkish led invasion into Israel. Turkey will lead Iran. Sudan, and Libya into Israel. These nations are already gathered in the Golan Heights of Syria today! The battle called Gog and Magog as described in Ezekiel chapter 38 will happen soon. Ezekiel chapter 39 describes another Turkish led battle into Israel. Ezekiel chapter 39 describes the battle of Armageddon.

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

Syria is not mentioned at all in Ezekiel chapter 38. Even though the name “Ethiopia” is listed in Ezekiel 38:5; Ethiopia does not really represent modern day Ethiopia. The Hebrew word that is translated as Ethiopia in Ezekiel 38:5 is the name “Cush”. Cush settled in the land south of Egypt which is Sudan today.

Meshech and Tubal are Magog’s brothers. they can be found in the genealogies. Magog, Meshech, and Tubal were the first princes that were set over provinces in the land that we call Turkey today. Magog, Meshech, and Tubal were the names of provinces in the land that we call turkey today. Look at any Bible map. Magog the “chief prince” of Meshech and Tubal is the “primary governor” of Turkey. Ezekiel chapter 38 tells us that a leader of Turkey will lead Iran, Libya, and Sudan into Israel. Read my commentary titled “Magog Made Easy!

Military forces from Iran, Libya, and Sudan are fighting in the Golan Heights of Syria today! Turkish President Erdogan has declared to the Islamic world that the Golan Heights must be taken away from Israel. The Turkish Army has already entered Syria. Soon the Turkish Army will enter Syria in force. They will first fight against Hamah and Tell Rifaat as foretold in Jeremiah 49:23. Then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed.

After the destruction of Damascus then Turkish President Erdogan will lead the forces that are now fighting in the Golan Heights of Syria into the Golan Heights of Israel. This is the battle of Gog and Magog that is described in Ezekiel chapter 38. By the way Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist!

Russia has a place in end time Bible prophecy but it is not described by Ezekiel. Russia is the bear of Daniel 7:5. Russia will create an end time Russian Union. They have already begun doing just that. Read my commentary titled “The Leopard is Upon Us!”

Magog is a Turkish ruler. Magog is not Russia!
