Turkey makes military alliance with Iran
Christians should not be surprised.
By Craig C. White
I am not surprised by Turkey’s recent military alliance with Iran even though Turkey is predominantly Sunni Muslim and Iran is Shiite. Turkey and Iran have been getting cozy for years. Probably five years ago the Iranian Hezbollah leader announced that Hezbollah (Shiite from Iran and Lebanon) and Al-Qaeda (Sunni from Libya, Sudan and elsewhere) were planning a joint attack on Israel. He said that they were going into the Galilee region. That would mean an invasion launched from southern Syria into the Golan Heights. All of these forces have been fighting in Syria for the past eight years. Ezekiel 38:5 says that Turkey will lead Iran, Libya, and Sudan into Israel. If any Christian is surprised that the Ezekiel chapter 38 Turkish led invasion into Israel is about to happen then they haven’t been paying attention for a long time.
Yes I think that Turkey will attack Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria and then destroy Damascus very soon (Jeremiah 49:23-27). The Turkish Army is already amassed in Idlib province located next to Hamah. Turkish proxy forces have been battling the Syrian Army in Hamah for the past two years. The Turkish Army is also in Azaz, Syria located just to the north of Tell Riffat. Their stated goal is the conquest of Kurdish held Tell Rifaat. Tell Rifaat is called Arpad in Jeremiah 49:23. Jeremiah says that after Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear about a coming invasion then the residents of Damascus will flee and then Damascus will be destroyed. Turkish President Erdogan also admitted that the sole reason why the Turkish Army has entered Syria is to remove Syrian President Assad from power in Damascus.
After Turkey along with the Free Syrian Army and Al-Qaeda forces destroy Damascus then I think that Turkey will lead the Iranian Army, Hezbollah from Iran, and also lead the Free Syrian Army (Al-Qaeda from Libya, Sudan and elsewhere) into Israel. God will cause these invaders to retreat by using the forces of nature against them (Ezekiel 38). I think that Israeli Rabbis will interpret this invasion as being the battle of Armageddon. According to the Bible, lasting peace for Israel follows after the battle of Armageddon. So Israel will make their peace treaty with Turkey and with Turkish President Erdogan (the Antichrist). The cry of the day will be peace and safety.
I think that somewhere in the midst of these events that the Church will be resurrected and taken away into heaven. So we are close.
