Welcome to the End Times

Welcome to the End Times

The Resurrection and Rapture, and the Tribulation is coming!

By Craig C. White

Welcome to the end times. You’re late! Just to be certain that we are all aware; the Antichrist is now identifiable. The one sign that Jesus will give to Israel that proves that he is truly their God is set to happen any day. Jesus Christ is about to come with a trumpet call to raise the dead and to take away Christians. Jesus is coming. Not in five years but very very soon!

There is a terrible time of trouble coming on the earth. The Bible calls this seven year long period the Tribulation. The Tribulation period was designed by God to chastise the nation of Israel for their rebellion. During the Tribulation Israel will be overrun by its enemies. Many Jews will be killed or captured, and many others will flee to the Jordanian wilderness for refuge. Jerusalem will suffer the worst. At the end of the Tribulation period Israel will remember that their God is faithful. The God of Israel will never leave them or forsake them. He will be their God forever.

The Tribulation period is also a time when God will judge the nations. It is a time of terrible wars, massive earthquakes, raging seas, drought, starvation, and tremendous numbers of deaths, great darkness, and much more. Luckily God has made a way for individuals to escape from suffering through the Tribulation period.

The Apostle Paul told the Christians in Greece that they would be taken away to heaven before the Tribulation period began on earth (2Thesalonians 2). This is known as the Rapture of the Church. Paul told the early Christians that the Tribulation couldn’t begin until Satan fell from heaven and then empowered a man on earth called the Antichrist. The Antichrist would rule over the next world empire and torment the nation of Israel. Paul said that before the Tribulation began the Antichrist would be revealed on earth. Before the Tribulation began believers in Jesus Christ would be taken away up into heaven. So identifying the man who will be the Antichrist would be the end times sign that the Rapture is about to happen!

How will we be able to identify the man known as the Antichrist? There are several specific things that the Bible tells us to look for. One of the most obvious signs is that he will claim to be God. Today I know of one world leader who is claiming to be God. Turkish President Erdogan along with his supporters has now officially declared that Erdogan is God. As a matter of fact if you drive down the streets of Turkey you will see giant banners inviting you to join in the celebration of Erdogan’s holy birthday! The Turkish people now sing a song that claims that “Erdogan always gets his power from Allah!” But wait, there are several more end times signs that Turkish President Erdogan fulfills!

In Ezekiel chapter 38 and 39 we are told of two invasions into Israel led by the “chief prince” or primary governor of Turkey. President Erdogan fulfills that description. He was elected as President of Turkey in December 2014 and served as Prime Minister before that since 2002.

The Bible says that the Antichrist will appear with lying wonders. That means that he will appear to do miracles but they won’t be legitimate. Turkish President Erdogan has performed fake healings during campaign rallies. The Bible also tells us about an image that speaks. Erdogan recently gave a speech to his supporters as a nine foot tall hologram. No kidding.

The Antichrist will rule over the next World Empire and attack Jerusalem. Erdogan has vowed to do both of these things. His supporters say that Turkey is the only legitimate head of the next Islamic Caliphate.

Another thing that the Antichrist will do is to invade Syria and destroy its capital city of Damascus. He will then lead his troops into Israel. Erdogan has already vowed to overthrow Syrian President Assad in Damascus. Also every nation that Ezekiel 38:5 says will invade Israel is now fighting in Syria! I don’t know if these invasions will happen before the Rapture or before the Tribulation but if we do see Turkey invade Syria then we ought to be absolutely certain that Erdogan is the Antichrist. And if he is indeed the Antichrist then we can be certain that the Rapture and the Tribulation are about to happen!

During the Tribulation God will raise up a rotten ruler in Israel. The Prophet Zechariah calls him the idol shepherd. We have all probably been comforted by the reelection of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but I am afraid that Netanyahu will not hold onto his authority for very long. World powers like the United States, United Nations, France, and others have all shifted into high gear to create a Palestinian State inside of Israel without Prime Minister Netanyahu’s consent. There now exists a worldwide movement to get rid of Benjamin Netanyahu. A rotten Israeli ruler is another sign of the end times.

There is yet another sign during the end times. It is a sign to the nation of Israel that Jesus Christ is truly their God. It is also a warning to Israel that their time of Tribulation is about to begin. This sign is the flooding of Mosul in northern Iraq and the plundering of the city by its enemies. The Prophet Nahum tells us all about it, and the news says that the Mosul dam is feeble. So keep your eyes on Mosul!

The Tribulation is a terrible time of trouble on earth. You don’t want to suffer through it. All signs point towards its soon beginning. Call on the Lord Jesus Christ while you still can and be saved from your sins and escape the seven year long Tribulation period on earth.

US Pastor Andrew Brunson is in the Bible

US Pastor Andrew Brunson is in the Bible

To the Church in Smyrna write; the devil shall cast some of you into prison.

By Craig C. White

American Pastor Andrew Brunson led a small church in Izmir, Turkey for twenty four years. After Turkey’s failed coup attempt Turkish President Erdogan arrested or jailed hundreds of thousands of suspected dissidents. US Pastor Andrew Brunson was only one of several Christians to be jailed. Brunson has been held in a Turkish prison for the past two years. Despite a prisoner exchange initiated by the US between Israel and Turkey, Pastor Brunson remains hostage in Turkey. Andrew Brunson is at the center of a war of words, ill feelings, and economic sanctions between NATO allies Turkey and the US.

Pastor Brunson served in a small Church in Izmir. Izmir is called Smyrna in Revelation chapter 2. Jesus warns that in the last days before the Rapture, some Christians in Smyrna will be thrown into prison.

Revelation 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; 9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Do I think that Revelation 2:10 describes the plight of US Pastor Andrew Brunson? Yes I do. The letters to the seven churches in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 are especially pertinent to end time Christians because they include warnings about the consequences that Christians will suffer if they are not watching when Jesus returns for the Rapture. US Pastor Andrew Brunson is in the Bible. That means that Jesus will return soon!

US Pastor Andrew Brunson is at the center of an international controversy that threatens to split apart Turkey from the US and NATO. Watch Jay Sekulow as he informs us of the latest developments in the Brunson case.

Read the #1 new release in Eschatology Jesus will fight on the Golan Heights

US Pastor Andrew Brunson is in the Bible

The book of Nahum says that Jesus is coming in a fiery whirlwind to fight on the Golan Heights. This verse concludes this description “The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” I think that Jesus will return to turn back the Turkish Army as they lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into northern Israel. I think that the Rapture will happen at that time!

US Pastor Andrew Brunson Freed on Time Served in Turkey

US Pastor Andrew Brunson Freed on Time Served in Turkey

By Craig C. White

Pastor Andrew Brunson is a US citizen that has been serving as a Christian pastor in Izmir Turkey for the past twenty years. After the 2016 failed Turkish coup, Turkish President Erdogan rounded up suspected enemies of the State. Brunson was charged with espionage and with aiding terrorists. Turkey charged Brunson with making the claim that Turkish President Erdogan was the biblical Antichrist. Pastor Brunson has been detained in a Turkish prison for the past two years and more recently under house arrest.

On Friday October 12, 2018 Andrew Brunson stood trial and was found guilty of terrorism but was released citing time served. Pastor Brunson immediately headed for a Turkish airport for a flight to Germany and then on to the US. President Donald Trump was instrumental in Pastor Brunson’s release, imposing economic and military sanctions on Turkey.

I wish Pastor Andrew Brunson God’s speed on his return trip to the US.

Read my commentary titled US Pastor Andrew Brunson is in the Bible

Turkey is the key to understanding end time Bible prophecy. Read my book Turkey invades Israel – Halfway to Armageddon. It tells the real story about the Ezekiel chapter 38 battle of Gog and Magog.

Battle for Idlib Syria map

The Battle for Idlib Syria map

By Craig C. White

One month ago the Syrian Army in Hamah was about to attack the Al-Qaeda held province of Idlib in northwestern Syria. That attack was thwarted due to a deal that Turkey made with Russia. Turkey promised to pull back Al-Qaeda’s heavy weaponry and troops from Syrian held regions. Under the agreement the Al-Qaeda forces were required to move a few miles away from the Syrian held borders of the Hamah and Aleppo provinces creating a 15-20 kilometer demilitarized zone. Turkey says that their mission has been accomplished ahead of the October 15th deadline. There are several Al-Qaeda rebel groups fighting in Idlib. These rebel groups are typically not Syrian but consist of foreign jihadists from all over the Middle East. Most of the Al-Qaeda factions in Idlib have cooperated but the Syrian Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra group is still holding their ground near the northern Hamah border.

Turkey has supported all of these Sunni Al-Qaeda factions throughout the Syrian war and had already established a chain of command between the Turkish Army and the varying Al-Qaeda factions. During this de-escalation exercise Turkey has been able to strengthen their chain of command as well as inventory troops and heavy weapons inside of Idlib. Turkey has also strengthened their military positions located along the Hamah and Allepo borders in Idlib. There are only 30,000 Syrian troops in Hamah and they are strained by seven years of constant fighting. Turkey now commands 70,000 Al-Qaeda troops inside of Idlib. Turkey also commands 50,000 Free Syrian Army troops in Idlib. The Free Syrian Army is yet another Al-Qaeda branch consisting of Sunni jihadists from northern Africa, mostly Libya and Sudan (Eze 38:5). Turkish President Erdogan has vowed to remove Syrian President Assad from power in Damascus. A Turkish led attack on Hamah is a real possibility.

The Prophet Jeremiah predicts the destruction of Damascus. Jeremiah says that Hamah and Arpad will first hear evil reports and be terrified.

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.

We can see that a Turkish led attack on Hamah could easily happen. Jeremiah also identifies Arpad. Arpad is called Tell Rifaat today. Tell Rifaat is the last remaining Kurdish held city in the Afrin region. The Turkish Army gained control over most of Afrin during their “Operation Olive Branch” campaign earlier this year. The Turkish Army is also amassed to the north and west of Tell Rifaat.

Take a look at the “Battle for Idlib, Syria” map. We can see where all of these forces are arrayed. But most of all read Jeremiah 49:23. Before Damascus is destroyed the northwestern Syria cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat will hear evil reports. It is likely that these evil reports are that Turkey is leading Al-Qaeda against them.

Turkey in Bible Prophecy

Magog Made Easy!

Ezekiel 38

By Craig C. White

Turkey has sent ground troops into Syria. Jeremiah 49 tells us that Turkey will enter Syria and then destroy Damascus. After Turkey destroys Damascus; Turkey will then lead the armies that are fighting in Syria today into Israel. The invading forces will be defeated by the hand of God.

Bible prophecy teachers say that Magog in the Ezekiel 38 prophecy refers to Russia. But from my house I can’t see Russia! That view of the Magog prophecy came about by transcribing the word “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. Magog was the most prominent prince in Turkey. In today’s terms Magog is the primary ruler of Turkey. I feel comfortable calling him the Prime Minister.

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 above tells us that Gog is the LAND of Magog. Magog is the “chief prince” (or most prominent ruler) amongst his brothers Meshech and Tubal. So Noah had a son named Japheth who had a son named Magog who settled in Turkey. Gog is a shortened version of Magog. Gog is the LAND where Magog and his brothers settled. Gog is Turkey, Magog is Turkey’s leader. You now know more than your pastor!

Turkey in Bible prophecyGog (Turkey), map credit: www.blueletterbible.org

Map of Gog (Turkey): The land and cities of Magog and his brothers. It may be a little difficult to find all these names, but they are there. I found Gog, Magog, Mesech (Meshech), Thubal (Tubal), Gomer, Ashkenaz, Riphath, Togarma (Togarmah), and Thiras (or Tiras) west of Istanbul. The generations of Noah are also listed in 1Chronicles 1:5-6

God will fight against these invaders with the forces of nature! God will turn this Turkish led coalition of nations back home by sending them great earthquakes, exceedingly heavy rain, and disease. God will cause every soldier to kill his fellow soldier.
