October 20, 2019: I heard two first hand reports that the Turkish Army is gathering a major offensive on Tell Rifaat.

One week ago the Turkish Army entered the Kurdish held region of northeastern Syria. The planned attack on Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria is in a different region to the west of the Euphrates River. Tell Rifaat is the last remaining Kurdish held town west of the Euphrates.

Meanwhile in Hamah; the Syrian Army is busy fighting against Turkish supported Al-Qaeda rebel groups. The Turkish Army also is amassed next to Hamah in the Idlib province. Turkey has recently threatened to attack the Syrian Army in Hamah.

October 22, 2019: Turkey and Russia make agreement for the Kurds to leave Tell Rifaat. The Kurds have not yet agreed.

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 Jeremiah 49:23 below.

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.

Events in Syria are just about to mirror what the Bible says. Things are about to get real. Turkey will attack the Syrian Army in Hamah and will also attack the Kurds in Tell Rifaat.

October 26, 2019: Shots between the Kurds and Turkish Army are exchanged in Tell Rifaat. Turkish helicopters flying overhead.

The Turkish Army is staging troops for a major assault on Tell Rifaat. Turkish President Erdogan said that if the Turkish Army accomplishes one thing in Syria it will be to conquer Tell Rifaat. The attack on Tell Rifaat has not reached the main stream media yet but it is coming. End time Bible prophecy is about to begin in earnest. It is High Time to Awake out of our sleep because our salvation is nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11).

The complete guide to Syria in end time Bible Prophecy

#1 in Ecclesiology Christian Theology

By Craig C. White

The fuse has been burning in Syria for eight years. Now the powder keg is about to explode! Isaiah 17 predicts the destruction of Damascus, Syria.

Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Now more than ever it is important for Christians to be alert to the Bible prophecy that is unfolding in Syria. For that reason I have edited and compiled all of my commentaries about Syria into this one book. These commentaries appear throughout several of my other books. This book contains everything that you need to know about Syria in Bible prophecy as you watch events unfold in the coming days.

The city of Damascus is the capital of Syria. It is a large prosperous city with modern amenities and an ancient history. Damascus is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. 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. Today Damascus is dying.

According to Old Testament prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah; Damascus, Syria will be destroyed. I think that the Bible tells us that Turkey will enter Syria and destroy Damascus. This could be the prophetic event that puts the end time into high gear!

Syria has been fighting for the past eight years, in the midst of a hostile takeover by outside forces. During that time Damascus has suffered some damage, but has been mostly spared. Now Turkey has amassed 400,000 soldiers on the Syrian border. Now Turkish President Erdogan has vowed to remove Syrian President Assad from power in Syria’s capital city of Damascus. Now Turkey has acquired world wide support for their invasion into Syria.

A Soul is like a Seed

A Soul is like a Seed

It must open in order to produce new life.

By Craig C. White

A soul is like a seed. Or perhaps I should say that a seed is like a soul. I think that God created seeds to illustrate how life renews itself and how our own souls live and also all too often die. God gave the first living thing a seed!

Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

A seed is designed to produce new life. It has a hard outer shell and a center that is capable of becoming a whole new plant. Our souls are similar. Our hearts house and protect our spirit. Our spirits are capable of growing into something greater. Regrettably, most souls never yield new life. Jesus compared a person’s soul to a wheat seed.

John 12:24-25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

In order for a seed to grow it needs to open its outer shell. If it doesn’t open its shell then it cannot become anything more than a seed and it dies. In the same way, our hearts must open to God’s spirit in order to renew our life. If our hearts remain closed then our spirits cannot be renewed by the Holy Spirit of God.

Did you know that a seed opens from the inside? When conditions are right the embryo swells and breaks open the outer shell. Our hearts must also open from the inside. The Spirit of God is always outside of our hard hearts beckoning us. When we hear him we must push our shell apart in order to let him in.

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

When you sow seeds into the ground you have expectations that they will grow back up out of the ground and produce new life and fruit. The seed will be gone but a new plant will grow in its place. If a seed represents a soul then the fleshy fruit represents our body. In the same way that a seed becomes a plant, our bodies will become something greater. If our bodies are sown into the ground they will be raised up again but they will be changed. Our bodies will be raised in much better condition. They will endure forever!

1Corinthians 15:42-44 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: 43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

A seed doesn’t just become another seed, but it becomes something much more. If our souls are germinated by God’s Spirit then we will also become something greater.

1John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Because of sin our spirits cannot regenerate our bodies alone. We need God’s everlasting Spirit. Without God’s spirit our souls and bodies will wither and die. If our souls hold the Spirit of God, then even though our bodies die they will be made alive again!

Romans 8:10-11 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Jesus’ own resurrection is proof that if we receive God’s Spirit in our souls then our bodies will also be made whole. Our body may wither and die but because our soul has been made alive by God’s everlasting Spirit, our body will also one day be renewed.

1Peter 1:23-25 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

If a person never receives the Spirit of God then he will never be renewed. He will be dead forever. As you can imagine, being dead forever is really bad. Unfortunately it’s even worse than that. When a plant is dead it is used for firewood to be burned. When a person is dead God also tosses him into the fire.

John 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

Just like the rain falls on every seed, God’s Spirit is offered to every heart. If a person hardens their heart to God’s Spirit, then their soul and body are cast into hell to be burned.

Hebrews 6:7-8 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: 8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

If the soul of a man resembles a seed, and man was also made in God’s image (Gen 1:26), then perhaps God is like a seed. Does that sound farfetched?

Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

In the verse below, the apostle John calls Jesus the Word. The Word was with God. The English word with is translated from the Greek word pros. Pros means to be facing or toward. Pros can be translated literally as being face to face. So the Word (Jesus) was face to face with God.

John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

If you have ever cracked open an almond you have noticed that the nut has two halves. Just as the two halves of a seed are face to face; Jesus was face to face with God. Jesus was very near to God. Jesus was God. You know, you might even say that God was a nut! But you probably shouldn’t say that in church!

A soul is the spiritual seed of a man. It can grow into something new or it can wither and die.

a soul is like a seed

God has Great Expectations that he would know you!

Conqueror of Syria is the Antichrist!

Conqueror of Syria is the Antichrist!

The Antichrist is compared to the Assyrian kings

By Craig C. White

The Bible compares the Antichrist with the ancient Assyrian kings. The Assyrians conquered Syria and then invaded northern Israel. A few years later they invaded southern Israel. Turkey is about to do these same things.

In Jeremiah 49:23-27 Syria is invaded from its northwestern border near Turkey. Then Damascus is destroyed. Turkey will invade Syria, destroy Damascus, and then turn southward to invade northern Israel just like the Assyrians did in 734 BC. These events help to identify the Antichrist and are a prelude to Armageddon.

The Turkish Army has already entered Syria. Turkey President Erdogan has already called on every Islamic nation to take the Golan Heights away from Israel. Every nation that is mentioned in Ezekiel chapter 38 is today fighting in Syria. According to Ezekiel Turkey will lead Libya, Iran, and Sudan into Israel. The Free Syrian Army is comprised mostly of Libyans. Iranian forces are already shelling the Golan Heights on the Israel border.

Turkey President Erdogan has vowed to remove Syria President Assad from power in Damascus. Erdogan is the Antichrist. The Turkish Army is about to enter Syria in full force. Just like the ancient Assyrians, the conqueror of Syria is the Antichrist!

Not a Kurdish ceasefire! Turkey will continue their conquest of Syria

Not a Kurdish ceasefire!

Turkey will continue their conquest of Syria

By Craig C. White

Oct 17, 2019: Today US Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reached a temporary ceasefire agreement with Turkish President Erdogan. Turkey has agreed to stop military operations in northeastern Syria for 120 hours. According to the terms of the ceasefire the Kurds must withdraw from northeastern Syria. This should save Kurdish lives but the US is essentially giving northeastern Syria to Turkey without a fight. The Kurds have not yet agreed.

You are probably tempted to mosey along your way since the announcement of a Turkish vs Kurds ceasefire. But immediately after the five hour long negotiations, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said it was a “pause in Turkey’s operation” and “not a ceasefire.”

So don’t go away yet.

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 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. Turkey has every intention of continuing their conquest of Syria. Turkey will attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat and then they will destroy Damascus. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist. It is High Time for Christian’s to pay close attention to the actions of Turkey. It is High Time to Awake!
