“It is sad that simple historical truths are being labeled as ‘hate speech,”Eytan Meir, Im Tirtzu’s (Building the Zionist Dream) International Relations Coordinator, told United with Israel.
Facebook removed a video posted by the Im Tirtzu Zionist movement that traces the history of Jerusalem and the Holy Land from biblical times to the present, noting that the concept of a Palestinian nation only came about in recent years.
We are living in a time where facts and truth are being sacrificed in the name of political correctness and wokeness. This is especially true regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict, and that is why videos like this are so critical.
“We will continue creating content that tells the truth about the conflict, regardless of what Facebook thinks,” Eytan Meir said. It clearly demonstrates that the Prince of this World, Satan controls Facebook.
Meir added that an English version of the video is in the works, which he hopes will be published “in the upcoming weeks.”
Im Tirzu chairman Matan Peleg said: “We invite the public to watch a video describing the rich and extensive history of the Jewish people and to judge for themselves whether the decision to remove the video was justified.”
The Bible reveals that this small nation that was miraculously reborn as a nation in 1948 exactly as prophesied will be centre stage of world events right up to the time Jesus returns to rescue it from total annihilation. The Antichrist and his false prophet send out demonic spirits to assemble kings from all over the world for the battle at that place in Hebrew called Armageddon.
“And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs. For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty... And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” Revelation 16:13-16
One of the most known “end times” Biblical prophecies is the Battle of Armageddon. It is the final battle when Jesus liberates Israel from the Antichrist forces on the plains of Megiddo. Armageddon is a Hebrew word for the valley called Megiddo (valley of Megiddo).
The following article from the Jewish News Syndicate is evidence that we are fast approaching the time when the Antichrist will appear on the scene. At first, he will appear to be Israel’s saviour with a peace plan.
I am not suggesting that this will happen in the next year or two because the Bible’s timeline for the “end times” reveals in Daniel 8.
1. The Goat (Turkey, Sunni) and the Ram (Iran, Shia) battle for dominance has not yet played out.
2. Turkey’s attempt to re-establish a revived Ottoman Empire will be dashed when it is broken up into four Kingdoms out of which the Antichrist (Little Horn) emerges.
Then the goat (Turkey) became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven. “Out of one of them came a little horn, which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven.” Daniel 8:9-10
Israel is in a war that is difficult to identify, as there is no shelling by tanks and cannons or bombing by planes.
By Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, Jewish News Syndicate
“When senior Israeli government ministers meet with the chairman of the Palestinian Authority; when the defense minister promotes a long line of gestures and grants to PA leader Mahmoud Abbas; when the American administration revives the notion of a two-state solution and partition of the land; when U.S. President Joe Biden presses for the opening of a consulate for the PA in the heart of Jerusalem as an expression of his aspiration to see it as the capital of Palestine; when more and more Israeli ministers speak out against settlement and in favor of the partition of the land; we find ourselves in the midst of a silent, gradual and dangerous war.
That is why the Sovereignty Movement and some 20 other organizations that love the land of Israel and Jerusalem, have initiated protests to call on Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his government to stand resolutely and preserve the unity of Jerusalem.
For 12 years, the impression was that it was no longer necessary to stage demonstrations and vigils, but, apparently, we were wrong.
We must take to the streets and, in the name of devotion to and love of Jerusalem, to battle in its defense, rouse the people and spur the leaders to action. We will not enable Israeli submission to American dictates.”
As well as being surrounded by hostile Muslim nations intent on Israel’s destruction they are pressured by the UN and now America whom Israel considers one of its only allies.
Many of the orthodox Jews believe the 1800 prophecies in their Torah that reveal that their Messiah, will return to rescue Israel and He will rule and reign the nations from a completely restored Jerusalem. Sadly, they do not know it is Jesus whom they rejected 2000 odd years ago now. Pray for Israel.
Iran has “six armies outside its borders that work for it,” a senior Iranian general said in an interview to the Iranian Mehr Agency earlier this week, leading the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement to issue a statement correcting his comments, Arab media reported.
Iranian Maj.-Gen. Gholam Ali Rashid, a prominent commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), said that Qasem Soleimani, who led the IRGC up until his assasination by U.S. forces in January last year, had established six organized militias operating outside of Iran’s borders.
According to Rashid, these include Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthi movement in Yemen, Hashd al-Sha’bi in Iraq, Iranian militias in Syria, as well, Iran has inserted itself “into the Syrian army’s nervous system – its chain of command – and into the everyday lives of the local population,” Israeli commentator Ehud Yaari said. Finally, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and Hamas in Gaza.
“I was in Susa the citadel, which is in the province of Elam (Iran). And I saw in the vision, and I was at the Ulai canal. I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram (Iran) standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns, and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.” Daniel 8:2-4
“Behold, I will make known to you what shall be at the latter end of the indignation, for it refers to the appointed time of the end. As for the ram that you saw with the two horns, these are the kings of Media and Persia (now Iran)…” Daniel 8:20
We need to watch for the next part of Daniel 8’s prophecy to be fulfilled. Sunni Turkey (Goat) will not tolerate Shia Iran claiming leadership of the Muslim middle east. Turkey (previously controlled the powerful Ottoman Empire) considers itself the leader of the Muslim world. Daniel’s prophecy predicts Turkey defeating Iran in what is described as a savage encounter but then we are told Turkey’s bid to re-establish a neo Ottoman Empire is short lived. We are not told who comes against Turkey, possibly a coalition of western nations that do not want to see a revived Ottoman Empire. Russia for one would not want to see a revived Ottoman Empire challenge its dominance in the region. We are told that it is broken up into four nations/kingdoms and it is out of these that the Little Horn (Antichrist) emerges.
Turkey’s attempt to re-establish a neo Ottoman Empire
“The goat (Turkey) had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came toward the two-horned ram (Iran) I had seen standing beside the canal and rushed at him with savage fury. I saw him approaching the ram, and infuriated with him, he struck the ram, shattering his two horns, and the ram was not strong enough to stand against him... Then the male goat became very great, but when he became powerful, the large horn was shattered. Four conspicuous horns came up in its place, pointing toward the four winds of heaven.” Daniel 8:6-8
The Antichrist (little horn) arrives on the scene and is allowed to dominate the world for an allotted time, three and half years.
“From one of them a little horn emerged and grew extensively toward the south and the east and toward the beautiful land. It grew as high as the heavenly host, made some of the stars and some of the host fall to the earth, and trampled them. It made itself great, even up to the Prince of the host; it removed His daily sacrifice and overthrew the place of His sanctuary. Because of rebellion, a host, together with the daily sacrifice, will be given over. The horn will throw truth to the ground and will be successful in whatever it does.” Daniel 8:9-12
Ezekiel 38 also links the Antichrist (Gog) to modern Turkey (and/or its immediately surrounding vicinity). Ezekiel singles out all Islamic nations in the Middle East and North Africa as comprising the vanguard of Gog’s invasion force during the Great Tribulation.
Pakistani politician Moulana Abdul Akbar Chitrali, a member of the National Assembly from the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal Party demanded that the Pakistani military declare Jihad against Israel and use its long range missiles, F-17 fighter jets, and atom bomb against it. He made his remarks in a speech that was aired on PTV (Pakistan) on May 17, 2021.
Moulana Chitrali said that Pakistan is the seventh most powerful country, and it should not use its missiles and atom bomb as children’s toys or artifacts in a museum. He continued to say that Jihad is the only way to liberate Kashmir and Palestine.
Muslims wherever they live in Gaza, West Bank within Israel’s borders or elsewhere in the world have one agenda, one goal, Jihad, the annihilation of Israel. Biden’s two state solution is not an option for the Palestinians, nor for their Muslim neighbours. This is a spiritual battle, the outcome of which is known and given to us in God’s Word. Jesus will eventually rule and reign the nations for 1000 years from a restored Jerusalem/Israel.
THE THOUSAND YEARS
“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while. Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.” REVELATION 20:1-6
Turkey is assembling a multi-national Islamic Army it calls “the West’s Greatest Fear.” Could it end up being the 2nd largest in the world? What is Erdogan’s goal is assembling an army of this size from most of the northern middle east and western Asia? Will this army fulfill Ezekiel 38 and invade Israel? Is that its ultimate destiny. Watch this Nelson Walters video to see who is joining with Turkey to form the world’s most dangerous army. Turkey 2023: Satan’s Throne from Nazi Germany to Caliphate?
I have posted a number of articles on the prophesied coming wars of Daniel 8 involving first Iran (Ram of Daniel 8) and then Turkey (Goat of Daniel 8).This video only confirms that these prophesied events are unfolding in our time.
“I saw the ram (Iran) charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.” Daniel 8:4
This prophecy is already playing out with Iran pushing west with its proxies. The article “Meet the Proxies: How Iran Spreads Its Empire through Terrorist Militias” by Arabic-language research analyst, David Daoud describes how in Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen, and elsewhere, Tehran has perfected the art of gradually conquering a country without replacing its flag in its efforts to establish a new Persian Empire.
“As I was considering, behold, a male goat (Turkey – a revived Ottoman Empire) came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground. 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 8:5-7
Nelson’s video demonstrates what Turkey (Goat) of Daniel 8) is already doing to re-establish its dominance with a revived Ottoman Empire. It will demolish Iran’s hopes of a new Persian Empire as described above in Daniel :5-7
Other related videos from Nelson Walters on Turkey’s (former Ottoman Empire) prophesied end times role.
Turkish magazine calls for revival of CALIPHATE amid Hagia Sophia conversion. At the center of the accusation is the latest issue of the magazine, published on Monday, which features a cover stating: “Get together for caliphate. If not now, when? If not you, who?“ An interview with Dilipak, a veteran Turkish conservative journalist, is one of the lead stories in the edition.
Ozer, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, said critics of the story were misinterpreting it. “Our journal demands that the countries of Islam come together, just as Europe has come together and established a union, just as others have made similar ones. Our call has nothing to do with any country,” he said.
The Caliphate cover story and the furor that followed comes on the back of Turkey’s decision to convert the Hagia Sophia, one of its national treasures, back into a functioning mosque. Originally constructed as a Christian church, it was converted into an Islam house of worship after Constantinople fell to the Ottomans. Ataturk transformed the building into a museum in 1935.
Biblical end times prophecy is centred on the Middle East with Israel at the centre. As mentioned in many previous posts, Turkey the Goat of Daniel 8, also plays a lead role as a revived Ottoman Empire which is eventually broken up into four nations out of which the Little Horn (Antichrist) arises. Biblical prophecy is the most significant proof that the Bible is God inspired and inerrant. Just as the Bible prophesied Jesus first coming in detail it also prophesies His second coming in even greater detail. Be encouraged.
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
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Thursday that Israel’s capital city of Jerusalem still belongs to Turkey.
In a speech marking the opening of the fall session of Turkey’s parliament, covered by Turkish media, Erdoğan began with harsh criticism of Armenia for the armed conflict that broke out this week with Azerbaijan and their mutual claims to the Nagorno-Karabakh region. However, his comments shifted closer to home and he made the surprising remark that Jerusalem still belongs to Turkey.
“The Jerusalem issue is not a geopolitical problem for us. Jerusalem is our city, a city from us,” Erdogan said, referring to the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World War One.
“In this city [Jerusalem] that we had to leave in tears during the first world war, it is still possible to encounter traces of the Ottoman resistance,” Erdogan said. “We accept it an honor on behalf of our country and nation to express the rights of the oppressed Palestinian people on every platform.”
The Ottoman Empire controlled Jerusalem for 400 years until its defeat at the hands of the Western allies who divided up the former empire, with many of its former provinces becoming independent Arab countries. During the war the Ottomans also carried out the Armenian genocide, murdering some 1.5 million Christian Armenians – enmity that remains and led to Erdogan’s condemnation of Armenia.
As I have posted before we are seeing the prophecy of Daniel 8 developing, with Turkey as the goat nation beginning to exert its desire to re-establish the Ottoman Empire. The Ram nation Iran is already pushing west, north, and south exactly as prophesied and it is only a matter of time before Turkey crushes Iran.
“And the goat ( Turkey, Sunni) had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came to the ram (Iran, Shia) 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 8:6-7
So many Biblical prophecies of the end times are manifesting now that it is obvious to most Bible believing Christians that we are living in the last days. Recorded in Matthew, Mark and Luke, Jesus told us that in the “last days” there would be a great falling away (apostasy) in the church. Many of the institutional churches now accept homosexuality, gay marriage and other heresies. Other end times signs such as people will be lovers of self, lawlessness will abound, pestilence, famine and other so called natural disasters are all evident. Jesus said all of these things must take place before He comes to take His church to heaven prior to God pouring out His wrath on a world that totally rejects God the Father and Jesus, His Son.
One day after the United Nations Security Council voted in favor of lifting the arms embargo on Iran, the ruling mullahs unveiled a ballistic missile that reportedly can reach the United States.
The headline of a report by Iran’s state-controlled Afkar News read in Farsi, “American Soil Is Now Within the Range of Iranian Bombs.” The report boasted about the damage that the Iranian regime could inflict on the U.S. By sending a military satellite into space, Iran now has shown that it can target all American territory; the Iranian parliament had previously warned [the U.S.] that an electromagnetic nuclear attack on the United States would likely kill 90 percent of Americans. The same type of ballistic missile technology used to launch the satellite could carry nuclear, chemical or even biological weapons to wipe Israel off the map, hit US bases and allies in the region and US facilities, and target NATO even in the far west of Europe.
For Iran’s ruling mullahs, compromises and appeasement means weakness. The more the international community gives the mullahs, the more the regime apparently feels empowered to pursue its malign behavior.
Iran is, according to the U.S. Department of State, “the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism.”
End Times Biblical prophecy in Daniel 8 tells us that one of the major wars in the last days before the Antichrist appears on the world stage will be Iran (Ram of Daniel 8) will push west, north and south and this we see happening right now.
“I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; and no beasts could stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and magnified himself.” Daniel 8:4
IRAQ: When the post-Saddam Iraq held the country’s first free elections in 2005, Shia parties, most of which had had long-standing relations with Iran, rose to power. Ever since, Iran’s influence in Iraq has only grown — first as a counter-force to the American occupation and then as a security provider to the Iraqi government.
LEBANON& SYRIA: Iran funded Hezbollah controls Lebanon and the deployment of Hezbollah foot-soldiers in Syria is ominous.
ISRAEL: Increasing attacks by the Iranian-funded Hamas into southern Israel.
YEMEN: Iran controlled Houthi are even launching rockets at civilian targets,
With billions of dollars of revenue pouring into the pockets of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), they are becoming more empowered and emboldened to pursue their revolutionary ideals of anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism and to become the leader of the Muslim nations in the Middle East.
Iran’s dominance in the Middle East will be short lived. Daniel 8 tells us what comes next. I will reveal that in a future post or better still you can go to Daniel 8 and check it out for yourself.
The Great Sunni-Shia War (Daniel 8 Ram) will probably be the next prophetic event to take place. As such it will be an amazing opportunity to show an unbelieving world the truth of God’s Word and to present the good news of the Gospel of Christ. Mark Davidson, author of the book “Daniel Revisited – Discovering the Four Mid East Signs leading to the Antichrist” is my go to author on the signposts and I recommend his website http://www.foursignposts.com
The article, with the title “Mideast’s worst case: A ‘big war’ pitting Shia Muslims against Sunni,” shows that secular commentators are realizing what could potentially happen in the Middle East – a great Sunni-Shia War.
Hiwa Osman, an Iraqi Kurdish commentator, was even more blunt: “The whole region is braced for the big war, the war that has not yet happened, the Shiite-Sunni war.”
Up to now, two things drew Iran’s IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) to conquer and occupy the UAE. They were (1) its great oil production and reserves, comprising part of the one-fourth of world oil production that could be taken out by the IRGC, and (2) it is a relatively weak Muslim nation that would not stand in the way of the IRGC bringing its 1979 Shia Revolution to that nation.
We now have a third reason for the IRGC to invade and occupy the UAE. And the reason was uttered recently by the man controlling one of the two powers (horns) of the Ram, that is, the supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei.
Tuesday September 1st, as he spoke to the heads of education in Iran, he said,
“The UAE betrayed the world of Islam, Arab nations, regional countries and Palestine itself. Of course, this betrayal will not last long, but the stain of this infamy will remain on them forever.” [emphasis added]
First, the UAE is accused of betraying Islam and all the Arab nations. Since the UAE (a Muslim nation!) is fraternizing with what the IRGC names as the Little Satan (the USA being the Great Satan), the UAE must be invaded so the Revolution can cleanse whatever is going on in the UAE. It was already a rather “backslidden” Sunni nation, but now it is becoming a squeakier wheel.
Second is the use of the phrase, “of course.” Of course, it is obvious that the UAE must be dealt with. Of course we, the Iranian regime comprising the two horns of the ram—will run out and take care of the UAE when we take care of the entire Muslim Middle East! Of course the Second Signpost is coming.
Third, apparently the UAE’s transgressions will not last long. What does this mean? The world would take this as just another “idle” threat from the supreme leader. Of course, to the student of the Signposts, it may very well mean the Second Signpost is not very far away.
