4 pillars for understanding near time Bible prophecy
Turkey, Turkey, Turkey, and Mosul
By Craig C. White
Here are four simple insights that will help you to recognize what is going on in the world today.
1. In Ezekiel chapter 38 the man named Magog is the “chief prince” or primary governor of Turkey. Magog along with his brothers Meshech and Tubal were princes over the provinces of Asia Minor or what we call Turkey today. Ezekiel chapter 38 tells us that the primary ruler of Turkey will lead an invasion into Israel. Ezekiel chapter 39 tells us that the primary ruler of Turkey will also lead the battle of Armageddon. The Antichrist leads the battle of Armageddon so the primary governor of Turkey is the Antichrist. Today Turkish President Erdogan claims that he is god. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist!
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:
2. Isaiah 17:1 tells us that Damascus will be destroyed. Jeremiah 49:23 tells us that this invasion begins in Syria’s northwestern cities near the Turkish border. Turkey will invade Syria from the northwest and then march down to Damascus. Isaiah chapter 10 identifies the Antichrist as being similar to the ancient Assyrian kings because he will also invade Syria and then invade northern Israel. Turkish President Erdogan will destroy Damascus and then invade Israel.
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.
3. Daniel chapter 7 describes three Unions that will combine to form the next World Empire. These three Unions are 1) the European Union 2) the new Russian Union 3) a new Middle Eastern Union. The new Middle Eastern Union will be represented by a leopard. I think that after Turkey conquers Syria they will then install Muslim Brotherhood leadership there. Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran will be the first four nations to form this Union. These four nations are all located along the Euphrates River (Revelation 9:14).
Daniel 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.
4. The book of Nahum indicates that the city of Mosul will be flooded by water. Mosul is located in northern Iraq. The ruins of ancient Nineveh are located within its city limits. God destroyed ancient Nineveh with a flood of water. He will also destroy Mosul with a flood. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS.
Nahum 1:8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
To summarize; First Turkey will invade Syria from its northwestern border. Turkey will march down to Damascus and destroy the old city. Turkey will then form a new Middle Eastern Union. After Turkey destroys Damascus it will lead an invasion into Israel. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist! Also at some point soon ISIS will be flooded in Mosul.
