NEXT ON THE BIBLICAL “END TIMES” TIMELINE

Gog and Magog Alliance (Ezekiel 38) – Will Afghanistan Align with Turkey when USA Pulls Out?

Will Turkey (Goat of Daniel 8) align with Afghanistan when the USA pulls out? Throughout the 1990s, Iran (Ram of Daniel 8) provided support to Afghan Shiite groups and the Northern Alliance in their fight against the Taliban but Afghanistan is a Sunni majority country and the Taliban is a fundamentalist/hard-line Sunni group.

The USA’s 20 year occupation of Afghanistan ended on the last day of August. Who will step into that power vacuum and what are the prophetic implications? The Taliban met with both Russia and China in the last week. Obviously everyone has their eyes on Afghanistan, but the country we should probably most fear assuming control is Turkey and its pseudo dictator Erdogan. Because its Turkey who will assemble the Gog and Magog Alliance. Watch this Nelson Walters Video to learn how Afghanistan fits in.

TURKEY’S ROLE IN THE END TIMES

The current war between Armenia and Azerbaijan is in fact a continuation of an on-off conflict that has continued since the late 1980s. What is new is the technology at use.

Erdogan backs Azerbaijan with the aim to ‘Make Turkey Great Again’. The Turkish leader has made little secret of a broader agenda, characterizing his government’s stance as an expression of its deserved place as a leader in the world order (a revived Ottoman Empire). As I have mentioned many times now, Turkey features prominently in Biblical “end times” prophecy particularly as the goat in Daniel 8.

Turkey has played an immense role in helping build Azerbaijan’s military.

Turkey has used its drone force to destroy dozens of tanks and other armored vehicles and artillery in northern Syria. It has positioned itself as one of the world’s major producers of armed drones and unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAV’s). Erdogan’s success with the drones in Syria and now the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is most likely one of the reasons he has been so outspoken about his aim to “Make Turkey Great Again

Research by Forbes indicates that Armenian losses currently include nearly 200 armored vehicles and over 300 soft-skinned vehicles, all destroyed by unmanned drones. To be sure, the tanks destroyed by the drones were relatively geriatric Soviet-era T-72’s, but the top armor of tanks is always the weakest — and that’s where the drones’ missiles always strike.

At the same time, Turkey (Goat/Sunni) is exerting its military strength in Azerbaijan and Syria, Iran (Ram/Shia) is even more aggressive with its proxies in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Gaza. It is only a matter of time before we see the Goat and Ram conflict outlined in Daniel 8.

And the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came to the ram with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the canal, and he ran at him in his powerful wrath. I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns. And the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power.Daniel 8:5b-7

END TIMES PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” Matthew 24:9-13

ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS BEHEAD IN MOZAMBIQUE REIGN OF TERROR

Islamic extremists have unleashed a reign of terror in northern Mozambique leaving churches burned to the ground, people beheaded, and tens of thousands displaced and traumatized. There have been reports that the militants beheaded 15 people in one week. Earlier in Holy Week, 52 young people who refused to join the Islamic terrorists were killed. Since 2017, more than 1,100 people have been killed in attacks after extremists launched a violent campaign to persecute Christians and recruit young soldiers.

OVER 8,000 MEMBERS OF ONE NIGERIAN CHURCH KILLED

One church in northeast Nigeria has revealed extremist group, Boko Haram, has taken the lives of 8,370 of its members. In a press conference, Reverend Joel Billi, from the Church of the Brethren, stressed the far-reaching and systematic persecution by Boko Haram.  “Over 700,000 members have been displaced, with only seven out of 60 District Church Councils not directly affected,” he said. According to Rev Billi, 300 branches of the church have either been burned or destroyed. As well as countless homes and properties. This has forced at least 25,000 church members into refugee camps in neighbouring Cameroon.

POLICE SHUT HOUSE CHURCHES IN CHINA AND ORDER CHRISTIANS TO STOP BELIEVING IN GOD

House churches across China have experienced intensified persecution in recent months. Bitter Winter, a publication produced by the Centre for Studies on New Religion which covers human rights issues in China, documented numerous instances where Christians were threatened by Chinese Communist Party officials. Recently a group of officials in the city of Leiyang, in the central province of Hunan, raided a house church. The Religious Affairs Bureau in Yongzhou city shut down a house church for “holding illegal gatherings without permits” and confiscated computers, a photocopier, and Bibles. Police in Dengzhou city raided a house church, confiscating its Bibles and hymnbooks, and took 8 members away for interrogation. Officers warned them that they would be sentenced to 3 to 5 years in prison if they gather again. “The government wants to eliminate all religions and force us to give up our belief.” Christian churches that refuse to register with the government, known as “house churches,” are illegal. However, even Three-Self churches, those registered with the government, have also experienced an uptick in persecution in recent months. Regardless, according to estimates, there are more Christians in China than Communist Party members.

COVID 19 STOPS CHRISTIANS FROM ESCAPING NORTH KOREA

With borders closed and security increased, COVID-19 has made it harder than ever for North Korean refugees to escape. Between April and June 2019, 320 refugees fled to South Korea. In 2020, the number of those who made it across the border amounted to only 12. According to South Korea, these numbers are the lowest ever.

ISRAEL AND TURKEY’S RELATIONS AT A LOW POINT

Turkeys mad man President Erdogan has outdone himself in this outburst on August 30th 2020. It is understandable that Mossad, Israel’s Central Intelligence Agency now believes Turkey is a bigger menace than Iran.

Erdogan begins his diatribe with: “We are not a nation with an army. We are a nation that is itself an army altogether, the Turkish Armed Forces have become the hope of all the oppressed victims, Muslims worldwide. Anyone who dares challenge us on land, sea, or air. We do not escape from the battle, we do not hesitate to give martyrs and veterans in this fight. Even if the steel armoured walls surround the West, we will destroy them all with our faithful chest. We believe these are the days that we were promised by Allah. And so it continues with Erdogan describing the leaders of Greece, France, North African, and Gulf countries as being greedy and incompetent.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.Matthew 24:6-8
