Residue of a Remnant

Residue of a Remnant

Zechariah 14:2

By Craig C. White

The English Bible uses the word “remnant”. A remnant most interestingly refers to a small part that is left of the whole nation of Israel after God judges them.

One Hebrew word for “remnant” is:

sheh-ay-reeth’
a remainder or residual (surviving, final) portion: – that had escaped, be left, posterity, remain (-der), remnant, residue, rest.

Here is the word “remnant” used in a verse.

2Ch 30:6  So the posts went with the letters from the king and his princes throughout all Israel and Judah, and according to the commandment of the king, saying, Ye children of Israel, turn again unto the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and he will return to the remnant of you, that are escaped out of the hand of the kings of Assyria.

In the verse above the Kings of Assyria invaded Israel and carried away most of the Jews as captives. They were taken to what we know as northern Iraq today. So the King of Israel sent letters to the remaining Jews in Israel saying “Turn to God”! The remnant are those Jews who were left to rebuild the nation of Israel after God judged them by the hands of the Kings of Assyria.

There is an even more interesting word used in the English bible, “Residue”! Residue can mean an even smaller group of people!

yeh’-ther
Properly an overhanging, that is, (by implication) an excess, superiority, remainder; also a small rope (as hanging free): –  + abundant, cord, exceeding, excellency (-ent), what they leave, that hath left, plentifully, remnant, residue, rest, string, with.

Zec 14:2  For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

In the verse above “residue” refers to the few inhabitants of Jerusalem who do not flee but stay behind in the city and are hunkered on Mt. Zion until the end of the Tribulation.

Here are the two words residue and remnant used together in the same verse.

Zep 2:9  Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.

In the verse above “the residue of my people” are the people of Judea who have fled into the Jordanian wilderness during the Tribulation. When Jesus returns they will plunder Jordan.

Also in the verse above “the remnant of my people” includes every Jew who has survived the Tribulation!

The residue is only part of the remnant.

Several Hebrew words are translated as “remnant” and “residue”. Sometimes the English word for remnant and residue are the same Hebrew word.

Very interesting to read and hard to stop. – Alexandria

Erdogan calls on Iran to unite over Syria

Erdogan calls on Iran to unite over Syria

Iran is listening

By Craig C. White

Ezekiel 38:5 describes Turkey as they lead Iran into Israel. So we know that at some point Turkey and Iran will become allies. In Jeremiah 49:23 the northwestern Syria cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat will hear evil reports.

Iran has been fighting to keep Syrian President Assad in power in Damascus. What if Iran changes sides in Syria? What if Iran decides to align itself with Turkey instead of with the Syrian Assad regime?

Well Turkish President Erdogan is making that sales pitch to Iran today. Erdogan says that Turkey and Iran must unite in order to eliminate the post war influence that the U.S. will have on Syria. He may be right and Iran is listening.

The Turkish Army along with several Al-Qaeda factions are gathered in the northwestern Syria province of Idlib. Idlib is the last remaining Al-Qaeda rebel stronghold in Syria. Iran has supported the Assad regime so far. Iran has fought against all of these Al-Qaeda factions throughout the seven year long Syrian war. But now that the Turkish Army is gathered together with Al-Qaeda, Iran is refusing to fight against them in Idlib. If the Syrian Army hears that Iran is now backing Turkey then that would certainly be an evil report that would upset the balance of power in Syria. According to Jeremiah 49:23-27 after Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed.

Turkey to rebuild Ottoman era naval base at Suakin, Sudan

Turkey to rebuild Ottoman era naval base at Suakin, Sudan

Stirs fears of a revived Ottoman Empire

By Craig C. White

The Prophet Daniel describes the Antichrist as he attacks northern Africa by many ships. Daniel says that “Egypt will not escape”. Today Turkey is building a large naval personnel carrier, and now has plans to build a naval base on the Red Sea coast of Sudan. This is a good position to launch an attack on Egypt. Turkish President Erdogan intends to reinstate ousted Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi back into power in Egypt within the next couple of years. Will your candidate for the Antichrist invade Egypt by many ships? Mine says that he will. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist.

Daniel 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. 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. 42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

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!

Turkish troops are amassed near Hamah and Tell Rifaat

Turkish troops are amassed near Hamah and Tell Rifaat

We are on the cusp of Jeremiah 49:23

By Craig C. White

This week we are at the very edge of unfolding Bible prophecy. Jeremiah tells us that Hamah and Arpad in northwestern Syria will be attacked and then Damascus will be destroyed. The city of Arpad is called Tell Rifaat today.

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 are so close to these events that this week Turkish President Erdogan announced that Tell Rifaat is the next city that the Turkish Army plans to attack. There have also been rumors that the Turkish Army has already conquered Tell Rifaat, and further denials by the Turkish government saying that they had not yet entered the city. We have also heard that Syrian supported Iranian militia have left Tell Rifaat in front of the pending Turkish attack. Now we are hearing that Syrian forces have entered Tell Rifaat. So apparently Turkey has not yet begun their assault on Tell Rifaat.

We are hearing evil reports about Tell Rifaat but let’s not forget about Hamah. The Syrian Army controls Hamah. The Syrian Army in the Hamah province is fighting against the Al-Qaeda rebel forces in the adjacent Idlib province. This week the Turkish Army has continued to bring troops into Idlib. Also this week more Al-Qaeda rebel forces have been bused into Idlib from the Ghouta neighborhood of northeastern Damascus. The Al-Qaeda rebels in Ghouta were the last outpost of rebel activity near Damascus. Lately the Al-Qaeda rebels in Ghouta have been shelling downtown Damascus. The Syrian Army finally drove them out this week.

The final analysis is that Turkish and Al-Qaeda troops are amassed near Hamah and Tell Rifaat.

Expect to hear reports about a Turkish led assault on Syrian forces in Hamah in conjunction with reports about the Turkish attack on Tell Rifaat. Turkish and Al-Qaeda forces have been amassing in the Idlib province near Hamah.

Turkish troops are amassed near Hamah and Tell Rifaat

In Bible history Hamah and Tell Rifaat were regional and religious capitals of ancient Syria. These towns worshiped separate false deities. Today these two towns are controlled by different people. Hamah is controlled by the Syrian government and Tell Rifaat is controlled by the Kurds. In the Bible Hamah and Tell Rifaat represent northwestern Syria as a whole. In the following verses the ancient Assyrians are recounting their victories over Hamah and Tell Rifaat in 734 BC: 2Kgs 18:34; Isa 36:19, 2Kgs 19:13; Isa 37:13.

2Kings 18:34 Where are the gods of Hamath, and of Arpad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah? have they delivered Samaria out of mine hand?

In the previous verse the Assyrians are intimidating the Jews in southern Israel by reminding them that the Gods of northwestern Syria could not deliver Hamah and Arpad out of the hands of the Assyrian Army. Neither could the God of northern Israel deliver them. Assyria conquered Syria and invaded northern Israel in 734 BC.

If you are smart then by now you should be asking yourself, “Couldn’t Jeremiah 49:23 pertain to the Assyrian conquest of Syria and of northern Israel in 734 BC?”. Wow that is a very astute question. Yes Jeremiah could pertain to 734 BC but it doesn’t because Jeremiah gave his prophecy one hundred years after the Assyrians conquered Syria and northern Israel. So Jeremiah’s prophecy applies to a future event. We should realize however that the 734 BC Assyrian conquest of Syria and of northern Israel is a model for what is just about to happen in Syria today! Turkey will attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria and then destroy Damascus. After that Turkey will invade northern Israel!
