Turkey is preparing for war and is gathering allies to do so. And, this growing alliance appears suspiciously close to that of the Gog and Magog alliance.
Is Turkey the Land of Magog?
It’s actually hard to say. And, I find that difficulty to be very interesting. It’s as if God were providing us with a test – a test of our willingness to love the Truth, instead of our own intellect. And, I am finding a LOT of ‘self love’ among the intellectuals making spurious claim after spurious claim about Magog.
Donald Trump just did the one thing that I did not expect him to do:
Recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel
He promised to do that during his campaign, and he delivered on that promise. And, I’m not used to American Presidents doing that – especially, when it comes to Jerusalem.
The side-effect of this event, will be a heating up of conflict in the Middle East and an acceleration of The Last Days. I believe that this is a very big deal, and I suspect that you will agree, when you see the evidence that I see.
Erdogan survived because he understood the battleground better than the generals did, and had better reflexes than the generals. And, Erdogan had been planning for this for years.
This was a real coup, with a real attempt at turning Turkey back towards the secularist values of Kemal Ataturk. The failure of this coup places another important piece into the puzzle of Ezekiel’s Fire.
Over the past two weeks the Republicans and Democrats presented their most persuasive arguments for why Americans should choose THEM to lead the United States. I’m not a fan of either party, and the candidates that I supported most did not get nominated.
More important, Turkey made its turn away from the US and NATO, and toward the Middle East. If you are wondering how that will play out, just read Ezekiel 38 and 39. And then, read Isaiah 19, where it talks about Assyria. For Assyria to rise, Turkey must fall.
These are momentous times, and the long, hot summer that I’ve been talking about isn’t over yet.
What a shocking week. Obama destroys the Rule of Law by effectively pardoning Hillary. Turkey doubles down on her rapprochement with Russia. We learned that investment in conventional oil development has collapsed. News of economic collapse gathers steam. Gold takes a big leap higher, and still has much higher to go. China teeters on the brink of a 1929-style Great Depression. Ramadan ends with dead bodies strewn everywhere. Matthew 24:7 comes to Dallas, where black shooters kill five police officers. A Palestinian terrorist murders a 13 year old American-Israeli girl in her bed.
And Typhoon Nepartak visits southern Taiwan and ignores my open invitation here in Taipei.
As the events of these Last Days unfold, we begin to see more and more evidence of Satan’s war with God – along with the undeniable fact that Satan cannot win. The Bible indicates when Satan figures this out – when he’s cast out of heaven.
The other problem that Satan has is his inability to work directly. Satan only has a very small slice of society that obey him. The rest of society needs to be… maneuvered and manipulated. And, society can’t be allowed to see that manipulation, or they will bolt for the exits.
Events are moving forward in ways that make me uncomfortable. We are seeing patterns in the financial markets that we’ve only seen immediately before major collapses. We are seeing the threat of war in the Middle East escalate in ways that you would expect, if Gog and Magog were on the horizon. We have political corruption that is so obvious that the least aware among us have seen it. The hatred of tiny Israel continues to rise and rise, as our morality falls.
War has flared in the Caucasus region, with Azerbaijan launching attacks against Armenia. The Panama Papers has set the political hens squawking. I have some more on Israel. And, the political Armageddon that is scheduled for November might not wait for election day.
My grandma used to call this a bunch of fuss and feathers. Unfortunately, my grandmother isn’t around to share her wisdom with us, so you’re stuck with me. Actually, it’s probably good that she isn’t here to see how awful and foolish her country has become.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer, and I really hope that you’ll be ready for this.
Our appointment with destiny approaches quickly. You can hear the thundering hooves of the four horsemen, if you listen carefully, but you won’t see them, until it is too late. If you haven’t begun to prepare, it might already be too late for you. I don’t know.
I’m no prophet, but I believe the Bible. And, what’s there is written in the headlines – if you are paying attention.
How much time do we have left?
I don’t know.
God is already preparing the ground for the coming of Gog and Magog. We already have what might be an EMP satellite orbiting above us. And, financial collapse is a complete and horrifying certainty.
