Turkish Army begins shelling Tell Rifaat

Turkish Army begins shelling Tell Rifaat

Tell Rifaat is Arpad in Jeremiah 49:23

By Craig C. White

Dec 13, 2018: Today the Turkish Army began heavy shelling of Kurdish military positions in the northwestern Syria city of Tell Rifaat. Tell Rifaat is located 25 miles north of Aleppo. Turkish President Erdogan vowed that Tell Rifaat would fall soon.

Kurdish forces captured Tell Rifaat from ISIS in February 2016. Since then the Turkish Army has been shelling the city and moving troops in place to recapture it from the Kurds. Over the past year the Turkish Army has swept the Afrin region of northwestern Syria, clearing out the Kurdish forces. The city of Tell Rifaat alone remains under Kurdish control. The Kurds have allowed some Syrian government forces inside of Tell Rifaat to help defend it against Turkey.

The Prophet Jeremiah says that when the northwestern Syria cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. These are the cities that the Turkish Army is targeting today. In Jeremiah 49:23 Tell Rifaat is called Arpad.

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.

Turkish aggression towards Tell Rifaat is an alarm that should alert us to the coming destruction of Damascus. These are early reports. The Turkish Army has begun shelling Tell Rifaat. This is a military tactic that typical precedes a ground assault. In order to fully identify Jeremiah’s prophecy we should begin to hear reports about Turkey’s intentions to also attack Hamah.

Every Christian and Jew should be paying attention to Hamah and Tell Rifaat. The attack on these two cities and the subsequent destruction of Damascus are preludes to a Turkish led invasion into the Golan Heights and also the return of Jesus Christ to stop these Invaders and to Rapture the Church.

Flynn secretly worked for Turkey

Flynn secretly worked for Turkey

By Craig C. White

Former US national security adviser Michael Flynn had been secretly working to fulfill Turkish President Erdogan’s wishes to extradite Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen from the US back to Turkey. Flynn and his company were paid $530,000 for their work. Over the past many months the US Justice Department says that they have spent more time working to extradite Gulen than any other case in memory. In his role as national security adviser Flynn recommended that the US remain in Syria and that the US continue to support the Al-Qaeda rebel groups there. Flynn delayed the US arming of the Syrian Kurds; in accordance with Turkey’s wishes. During the 2016 Turkish coup Flynn supported the Turkish opposition but changed his position latter, then supporting the Erdogan regime. During his brief duty as national security adviser Flynn was a paid Turkish lobbyist.

This illustrates how deeply Turkish President Erdogan has infiltrated international politics.

Turkish Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen was a close associate of Erdogan until Erdogan accused Gulen of running an organization trying to undermine the Turkish government. Erdogan blames Gulen for the 2016 failed coup attempt. Gulen fled Turkey in 1999, taking refuge in Pennsylvania. Among other things, Gulen’s “Hizmet” organization runs schools in Turkey and around the world including the US that prepares students to take positions in the government, military, and police with the goal of creating an Islamic world empire. Fethullah Gulen has millions of followers in Turkey and millions more around the world. Gulen is the second most powerful figure in Turkey next to President Erdogan.

Fethullah Gulen is my number one suspect for fulfilling the role of False Prophet. Erdogan wants the US to send Fethullah Gulen back to Turkey. If Erdogan and Gulen reunite and reconcile then the head of the Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire will be healed.

Rev 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.

High Alert, Tell Rifaat in the news

High Alert, Tell Rifaat in the news

Tell Rifaat in the news

By Craig C. White

Every Christian should be alerted when they hear about Tell Rifaat in the news. Tell Rifaat is called “Arpad” in Jeremiah 49:23 concerning the destruction of Damascus. This week the Turkish and Russian defense secretaries are discussing immediate military actions regarding the northwestern Syria cities of Idlib and Tell Rifaat. The Turkish Army is allied with multiple Al-Qaeda factions in Idlib. Al-Qaeda in the Idlib province are fighting against the Syrian Army in the Hamah and Aleppo provinces. Tell Rifaat is located in the far northwestern corner of the Aleppo Province.

Tell Rifaat is a predominately Kurdish city but the Kurds have allowed some Syrian government troops inside of Tell Rifaat in order to protect the city from Turkish aggression. The Turkish Army has been shelling Tell Rifaat from the Turkish border for the past several years. Now that the Turkish Army has entered Syria they are amassed to the north and to the west of Tell Rifaat. The Turkish Army has continued to strengthen their military positions in northwestern Syria.

The Prophet Jeremiah says that when Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. In Jeremiah 49:23 the northwestern Syria 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.

This week the Syrian Army 5th Legion mobilized from southern Syria towards the Idlib Province. Turkish President Erdogan called on Russian President Putin for an emergency meeting about Idlib. The talk has been about deescalation in Idlib but the military presence of the Syrian and the Turkish Armies are only growing. Erdogan may seek permission from Russia to launch a Turkish offensive against Hamah and Tell Rifaat. That would certainly qualify as “evil reports”. In the meantime Turkey is taking over northwestern Syria.

Turkey supports the multiple Al-Qadea factions in Idlib. Al-Qaeda has continually been attacking the Syrian Army across the demilitarized zones between Hamah and Idlib. The Syrian Army has decisively beaten back Al-Qaeda at every turn. I am certain that Turkey will not stand for that. Turkish President Erdogan said that the sole reason why the Turkish Army has entered Syria is to remove Syrian President Assad from power in Damascus.

According to Jeremiah the Turkish Army will attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat and will then march southward to destroy Damascus. Afterwards Turkey will lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into northern Israel. Damascus is located only thirty miles away from the Golan Heights.

How big is Ezekiel’s temple?

How big is Ezekiel’s temple?

It is much too big to be built on the current site.

By Craig C. White

How big is Ezekiel’s temple?

Ezekiel chapters 40 through 47 provide a detailed description of a future temple in Jerusalem. This is the temple that Jesus Christ will rule from during the millennial kingdom. That is the first one thousand years after Jesus’ return at his second coming. Jesus Christ will return to defeat Israel’s enemies and he will then set up his throne in Jerusalem to rule there forever.

Jerusalem will look a little different then. For instance; the small hill known as Mount Zion where the temple building will sit will become a very high mountain.

Eze 40:2  In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south.

Isa 2:2  And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

How high will Mount Zion become? I don’t know but according to the dimensions that Ezekiel gives for the land area that is dedicated to the temple and to its service, Mount Zion could easily be one mile high! The temple site will be one mile square but the land surrounding the temple will be about 52 miles long and 21 miles wide. If we were to fit a mountain into those dimensions it could easily reach to one mile high even with gentle slopes.

The following verses describe the outside length of the temple building site. The temple building site will include walls, courtyards, many rooms, and of course the temple itself. The dimensions are given in “reeds”. One reed is equal to eleven feet. Five hundred reeds are equal to 5,500 feet or just over one mile. So the temple proper will be about one mile square.

Eze 42:15-19  Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it round about.  16  He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.  17  He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.  18  He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring reed.  19  He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.

In the next verses Ezekiel describes the land area around the temple that is dedicated to God himself. The outskirts of this holy parcel will be for the Levites who will serve at the temple site. The Levites will build their homes on the gentle foothills that surround the mountain of the temple of God. The entire land mass that is dedicated to God’s temple is about fifty two miles long by twenty one miles wide. That’s big.

Eze 45:1-2  Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the LORD, an holy portion of the land: the length shall be the length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round about.  2  Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in length, with five hundred in breadth, square round about; and fifty cubits round about for the suburbs thereof.

Here is an interesting feature about the temple mountain. A river of water will flow out of the east side of God’s temple. The river will flow down the east side of the mountain down to the Dead Sea. The river will become deep and wide and the waters will bring new life to the desert and also to the Dead Sea. There will be water for swimming and many fish in the Dead Sea.

Eze 47:8  Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.

Jerusalem will be a much different place after Jesus returns. God’s temple will be high and lifted up on his holy mountain. The land of Israel will be watered and brimming with life. Israel, God’s chosen people will live in peace there forevermore.

Ezekiel’s temple is not the next temple that will be built in Jerusalem.There is a terrible time of trouble coming upon Israel and also upon the entire world. For seven years world powers beginning with Turkey will oppress Israel. Wars and natural disasters will kill perhaps one half of the worlds population. This seven year period of trouble is known as the “Tribulation period”. During the Tribulation period another temple will be built in Jerusalem. Animal sacrifices will resume for a while until the Antichrist stops them. Jerusalem will then be devastated for three and one half years which is the second half of the seven year period of trouble. At the end of the seven years Jesus Christ will return to vanquish Israel’s enemies.

The temple that is to be built during the Tribulation period should not be confused with Ezekiel’s temple that will be built after the Tribulation period. Ezekiel’s temple will be built after Jesus Christ returns. Ezekiel’s temple will be much bigger than the Tribulation temple. Unfortunately Jewish rabbis today think that by building a temple in Jerusalem they will bring lasting peace. But the Bible says that when they say peace and safety then sudden destruction will come upon them.

How big is Ezekiel’s temple?

Jesus is coming back. Be prepared. Read my BIG Book of Bible Prophecy.

Idlib deal is about to collapse

Idlib deal is about to collapse

By Craig C. White

Every Christian should be watching the battle for Idlib in northwestern Syria. The Syrian Army is in Hamah and are fighting against Al-Qaeda rebel groups in Idlib. The Prophet Jeremiah says that when Hamah hears evil reports that they will be terrified. Then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed.

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 and Russian brokered Idlib demilitarization deal has benefited the various Al-Qaeda rebel factions in Idlib. Over the past few weeks these Al-Qaeda groups have formed a single unified military body, which is called the National Front for Liberation under Turkish leadership.

Fighting has increased despite the formation of demilitarized zones between Hamah and Idlib provinces. The Syrian Army is on the verge of a major assault on Idlib. So far Turkey has claimed that everything is going well in Idlib but both the Syrian regime and Al-Qaeda say that the Idlib deal is about to collapse. Al-Qaeda is now looking to Turkey for additional military support. High Alert! Turkey has just established a military zone on the Turkey and Idlib border. That could only mean that Turkey is preparing a major assault on northwestern Syria. That would be enough to terrify me.
