The term “Son of man” typically refers to Jesus Christ

The term “Son of man” typically refers to Jesus Christ.

But “Son of man” sometimes refers to the Antichrist.

By Craig C. White

In several instances in the Bible God addresses men in general as “son of man” (Psa 8:4, Heb 2:6). God often addresses the Old Testament prophet Ezekiel as “son of man”. God calls the prophet Daniel “son of man” only one time in (Dan 8:17). When the word “Son” is capitalized in the Bible; most of the time the term “Son of man” refers to the Messiah (Dan 7:13). Occasionally the term “Son of man” is also used to describe the Antichrist (Luke 17:26 & 30). The two Greek words that are translated as “Son of man” are uihos (pronounced hwee-os’) meaning heir (or inheritor) and anthrōpos meaning human being. So the term “Son of man” literally means inheritor of humanity. Simply put the term “Son of man” describes a person who is born of human parents. In Jesus Christ’s case he was born to his mother Mary. He is truly a man. Of course Jesus Christ is also truly God. In the Antichrist’s case he will also be born of human parents. The Antichrist is only a man. In Luke chapter 17 the term “Son of man” is used in two different ways; both to describe Jesus Christ as well as to describe the man we call the Antichrist. In the following verses the term “Son of man” pertains to Jesus Christ.

Luke 17:22-25 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it. 23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. 24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. 25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.

In the Luke 17:26-31 the term “Son of man” is used twice (Luke 17:26 & 30) to describe the revealing of the Antichrist as he invades Jerusalem and Judea. This is a day of death and distress. Jesus warns people not to return to their homes.

Luke 17:26-31 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

In Matthew chapter 24 we are told who these people are that Jesus instructs not to return to their homes. They are the people of Jerusalem and Judea.

Mat 24:15-21 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Matthew 24:15-18 describes the same day as does Luke 17:30-31. The day that the “Son of man” is revealed in Luke 17:30 is the same as the day that the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stands in the holy place in Matthew 24:15. It is the very day that the armies of the Antichrist overrun Jerusalem and Judea. The “Son of man” in Luke 17:30 is not describing Jesus Christ but it is warning the citizens of Jerusalem and Judea about the coming Antichrist. The day that the “Son of man” is revealed in Luke 17:30 marks the beginning of Jerusalem’s and Judea’s great tribulation.

The term “Son of man” refers to the Antichrist as he invades Jerusalem and Judea in the following verses.

Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

Luke 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Mat 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Mat 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

In the Bible the term “Son of man” usually refers to Jesus Christ. But in these few instances “Son of man” is warning the people in Jerusalem and Judea about the invading army of the Antichrist.

Jeremiah 49:23 is beginning!

Jeremiah 49:23 is beginning!

Turkey is threatening Hamah and Tell Rifaat

By Craig C. White

Turkish Army is now threatening the northwestern Syrian city of Hamah and Tell Rifaat like Jeremiah predicted. Believe it or not this is the most important world event that Christians should be watching 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.

The Turkish Army is advancing towards the Afrin region of Syria from the west in Idlib. The Turkish Army is also amassed in Azaz just to the north of Tell Rifaat. Tell Rifaat is located twenty five miles to the north of Aleppo. Turkish President Erdogan says that Tell Rifaat is his main objective in the Afrin region. Tell Rifaat is called Arpad in Jeremiah 49:23.

Turkey is also ratcheting up aggression in Hamah. This week the Syrian government is claiming that Turkey is helping rebels in Idlib to attack the Syrian Army in Hamah. The nations are beginning to be disquieted over Syria.

Jeremiah says that after Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. I think that Turkey will then lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into Israel. I think that Jesus will return to cause these invaders to retreat and also to gather Christians.

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.

End Time Bible Prophecy happening now!

End Time Bible Prophecy happening now!

Syria invasion precedes Israel invasion

By Craig C. White

There is a major end time Bible prophecy looming over our heads. All of the players are in place. We are only waiting for the event to be triggered. That trigger is the destruction of Damascus, Syria. Keep reading! The destruction of Damascus is not a single isolated event. It begins a series of major end time Bible prophecies including an invasion into Israel!

I look at the headlines every day expecting to see that Turkey has invaded Syria. Is this a biblical prophecy that has been foretold? Yes. Like the ancient Assyrian King Tiglath-pileser in 734 BC a future prince will invade Syria and then invade Israel! This prince is joined by Iran, Libya, and Sudan. All of these armies are fighting in Syria today! By the way Ezekiel chapter 38 tells us that this prince is from Turkey!

I think that the Turkish Army will invade Syria and destroy Damascus as prophesied in Isaiah 17:1 and Jeremiah 49:24-27. Turkey will then lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria southward only a few miles into Israel.

You will find all of this fully explained verse by verse in my book Turkey invades Israel – Halfway to Armageddon. Please get a copy and read it! Please don’t be in the dark when these events begin happening. Understand the events of our times and where they are leading! Join me in watching the approaching Tribulation period on earth, the near coming of Jesus for his Church, and finally the return of Jesus to rule on earth forever!

Turkish military observation post surrounded by the Syrian Army

Turkish military observation post surrounded by the Syrian Army

By Craig C. White

The Syrian Army has recaptured all towns that had been taken by the Turkish supported rebels in the Hamah province of northwestern Syria. The rebels have fled to the Turkish military observation post in Morek. Morek is in the Hamah province just south of the Idlib province which is the rebel stronghold. The Turkish observation post is now completely surrounded by the Syrian Army. Tell me that that isn’t going to cause any problems.

The Prophet Jeremiah says that when Hamah hears evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed.
