END TIMES PROPHETIC EVENTS UNFOLDING NOW

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

PROPHESIED LAST DAYS TRIBULATION

Since 2009, 34,400 Nigerian Christians have been murdered by radical Islamists, with 2,200 slain in the last year, Nigeria’s International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law. report says. Radical Muslims have also killed an estimated 20,000 moderate Muslims who were living in harmony with Christians. The newly-released report indicates that deaths which the Nigerian government describes as random banditry or inter-tribal violence, actually result from radical Islamists attacking Christians, said Intersociety leader and founder Emeka Umeagbalasi.

Christian mourners at the burial site of the Rev. Alubara Audu who was killed by jihadist herdsmen at Buda, Kajuru in Kaduna state, Nigeria, in September 2020.

” The most dangerous dimension to radical Islamism in Nigeria is its secret rise and spread and clandestine control of state power through Fulani Jihadism. In other words, the Nigerian Government’s major local and foreign policy direction, in clandestine practice, is ‘Fulani Jihadism’ — a policy pursued with utter alacrity and through different colors and disguises including pro-jihadist or radical Islamic policies and conducts. To cover up these, the present Nigerian government has also created international machinery of falsehood and propaganda with well-funded or oiled international lobbying campaigns targeted at misinforming and misleading key and strategic international legislative, diplomatic, and democratic institutions or bodies especially the EU, U.S., U.K. and Australia, and their Parliaments; the Commonwealth and the U.N. and other internationally respected state and non-state actors,” the report states, in part.

Islam is the most Antichrist entity that has arisen throughout history. It is significant in terms of prophesied end-times events, that both Sunni and Shiite Muslims believe the appearance of their Messiah figure, Mahdi is imminent. Likewise, Orthodox Jews believe their Messiah will arrive sometime before the Jewish year 6000. We are now in 5781. Likewise, many Christians believe as I do that Biblically prophesied events reveal Jesus’ second coming is not too far distant. Could this shed some light on the identity of the Antichrist (The Beast) of Revelation? I think it does, the Little Horn (Antichrist) arises out of the geographical area that is now Turkey and I think it possible that both the Muslims and Jews will accept him as their long-awaited Messiah. Why Jews? Because he will build them a temple. What comes next? Prophecies in Daniel reveal that first Iran (Shia) seeks to exert its dominance over the Muslim nations which it is trying to do with its proxies right now. Next, Turkey (Sunni) crushes Iran to re-establish its former dominance when it controlled the Ottoman Empire. Biblical prophecy then reveals the revived Ottoman Empire is broken up into four out of which the Little Horn will arise.

Then the goat (Turkey) became exceedingly great (revived Ottoman Empire), 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 (Antichrist), 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 8:8-10

We are not told why or who breaks up the revived Ottoman Empire out of which arises the Antichrist. It will be interesting to watch how this all plays out. But, how good is our God to tell us beforehand. He does, so that we can prepare and use this information to prove the Bible is truly God’s Word. Most importantly, we can complete our Lords Great Commission to bring many into His Kingdom.

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 ANTICHRIST

The Antichrist explained in detail by Scripture, not just a few facts, but his nature, how he arises, where he comes from, who the ten horns are, and who the 3 horns are that he uproots. Who is the demon who possesses him? All of these details are provided in this comprehensive movie-length video.

Once again Nelson does an excellent job of taking us through the Scriptures, mainly Daniel 7 & 8 and related chapters in Revelation, to give us understanding of the Antichrist and how his ten-nation Kingdom is formed and how it will eventually impact the world.

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT END-TIME PROPHESIES

Dalton Thomas of FAI and Maranatha Global is living eternal now. He truly understands we are living in the last days before Jesus returns to this earth.

Maranatha Global is all about encouraging and challenging us to live out our lives as Christ calls us to live in these last days. We need to live lives that will bring great reward throughout eternity.

We all need to know how God’s covenants are key to our understanding of history and how God works with mankind.

In the video, Dalton explains how God has unfinished business with Israel as the Abrahamic Covenant is everlasting, unilateral and unconditional.

We also need to understand that Israel is still under the Mosaic Covenant which is conditional. It comes with blessings and curses.

Everlasting righteousness only comes by faith in Jesus and it is Jesus who will bring everlasting righteousness to Israel.

“I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written,

The Deliverer will come from Zion,
he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”;
and this will be my covenant with them
when I take away their sins
.”

Romans 11:25-26

You will be blessed by Dalton’s teaching on Daniel 8: 9-13 as he states it is one of the most important End-Time prophecies. Although I believe Daniel 9 contains the most important O.I. End Time prophecy and I will post Dalton’s video on it in a future post.

PROPHESIED EVENTS UNFOLDING AS BIBLE PREDICTS

Palestinian historian Ghassan Weshah claimed in an interview on Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV that America is on the verge of collapse and will be replaced by Islamic regimes, not China. Listen to the why he believes this will happen.

European countries like Holland are becoming Islamic purely by Muslim immigrants producing many children and the locals not even at replacement numbers.

The anarchy we see happening in America and other countries is emboldening Muslims once again as we saw for a brief time with Isis.

The Bible tells us that in the last days before Jesus returns there will be wars and rumours of wars. I believe the next major war we will see in the Middle East is the battle outlined in the prophecy from Daniel 8. It is a battle between Iran, the ram (Shia) and Turkey, the male goat (Sunni) to establish who will lead the final Muslim Empire (Erdogan outspoken about a Revived Ottoman Empire). Turkey, the male goat crushes Iran, the ram. Then we learn it is broken up into four nations (perhaps the West or Russia or both will not countenance another Ottoman Empire) and out of one of them the prophesied Antichrist will arise to power.

Turkish President Erdogan poses with Ottoman era soldiers in front of monument dedicated to a revived Ottoman Empire

Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in place of it four notable ones came up towards the four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came a little horn (Antichrist) which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east , and toward the glorious land (Israel).” Daniel 8:8-9

TURKEY, IRAN & RUSSIA IN DARK ALLIANCE?

As the Turkish military pushes deeper into northeast Syria forcing thousands to flee for their lives, U.S. Pastor Andrew Brunson reveals a chilling prophetic dream he had while he was falsely imprisoned in Turkey.

Andrew Brunson (YouTube)

Brunson said, “my goal is about declaring who Jesus is and not getting involved in politics, but this is the dream God gave me, and I think it’s relevant to what’s happening now.”

While sitting in a Turkish prison cell in December 2016, Brunson said he dreamed of an evil pact brewing in the Middle East.

“In the dream, Turkey, Iran and Russia began to move together in a very dark alliance,” he explained.

Brunson woke up from the dream drenched in sweat and barely able to speak. At the time, Turkey (Sunni) and Iran (Shia) had been enemies for years so he knew something drastic was about to happen.

Turkey’s dependence upon both the west and Russia demonstrates the tightrope Turkey is walking at the present time. It is interesting to consider this scenario in the light of Erdogan’s plans to reestablish Turkey’s dominance/leadership of Islam, to reestablish an Ottoman Empire if you will,

The recent downing of the Russian SU-24 by a Turkish F-16 on Nov. 24, 2015 that violated Turkish airspace for more than 17 seconds resulted in Russia taking unilateral steps to cut its ties with Turkey in revenge for the downing of the jet.

Hence, NATO deterrence and its nuclear umbrella is still indispensable for Turkey in the face of an ever-aggressive Russia, which is geographically closer to Turkey than many other Western countries. Thus, Turkey must apply conciliatory methods to alleviate and eliminate ongoing problems with its traditional Western allies, increasing Turkey’s indispensability to both the West and Russia. Thus, Turkey must continue implementing a multi-vector and balancing foreign policy between the clashing blocs. To achieve this, Turkish policymakers must refrain from depending on Russia, while attempting to reduce the country’s economic, military and industrial dependence on the West.

Biblical prophecy, Daniel 8, tells us that eventually the Goat (Turkey/Sunni) will eventually defeat the Ram (Iran/Shia). The Ram’s attempt to establish its dominance of Islam is short lived. We can assume the West will not countenance Turkey reestablishing a revived Ottoman Empire because biblical prophecy tells us the region is broken up into four (four horns) out of which emerges the Antichrist (little horn).

We are moving ever closer to the last seven years before Jesus second coming (Daniel’s 70th week} when the Antichrist bursts onto the scene as depicted in the opening of the first seal of Revelation and the rider (Antichrist) of the white horse “went out conquering and to conquer.” Revelation 6:2

ARE PROPHESIED MIDDLE EAST WARS IMMINENT?

Iran building new precision missile facility on Syria-Iraq border

Mideast Iran War Games Missile Iran

Based on satellite photos released by ImageSat International, Fox News reported that an Iranian base is under construction on the border between Syria and Iraq, which appears capable of serving the Islamic Republic’s precision missile program.

NY Times: Israel was ‘far closer’ to attacking Iran than anyone realised

Even as Israel and Iran currently confront each other on a number of different fronts, and after the U.S. pullout from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord under President Donald Trump, the New York Times has published “The Secret History of the Push to Strike Iran.”

It details the debates within and between the U.S. and Israeli governments over whether to attack the Islamic Republic in order to thwart a potential Iranian nuclear threat, and in 2012 an Israeli attack “came far closer to happening than has previously been reported.”

“In the summer of 2012, American spy satellites detected clusters of Israeli aircraft making what seemed to be early preparations for an attack” on Iran, says The New York Times.

“One former senior Israeli security official, looking back at that time, said that it wasn’t until then that he believed the prime minister [Netanyahu] was serious about striking Iran,” says the article, written by Ronen Bergman, an Israeli security correspondent, and Mark Mazzetti, a Washington-based investigative reporter.

“Behind the scenes, Israel was indeed preparing for a strike. Its military and intelligence services had cut the time needed for the final preparations — for the attack and for the war that might ensue,” the correspondents write.

Michael Oren, the Israeli ambassador in Washington at the time, told the newspaper: “I went to bed every night, if I went to bed at all, with the phone close to my ear. I was ready to be called in by Israel and sent to the White House or the State Department to tell them we had attacked, or if they already knew from their own sources, straight to CNN.”

The Times report says that the Israeli attack “came far closer to happening than has previously been reported.”

“Netanyahu insists that the threat of an Israeli strike ‘was not a bluff — it was real. And only because it was real were the Americans truly worried about it,’” says the report. He pulled back from the brink only because he still could not get a majority of his cabinet to support him. “If I’d had a majority, I would have done it,” he says. “Unequivocally,” according to the article.

‘Israel must pay,’ vows Hezbollah terror chief in new threats

World Israel News Staff and AP – The leader of Lebanon’s Iran-backed terror army, Hezbollah, broadcast new threats on Saturday related to air strikes within Lebanese territory it believes Israel carried out.

Terror chief Hassan Nasrallah reiterated his group’s intention to retaliate against the Jewish state, saying Israel “must pay a price” for its aggression.

Following one of the drone strikes, reports indicated a key facility related to Hezbollah’s Iranian-backed precision missile program was struck, with critical infrastructure destroyed.

On Saturday, Nasrallah categorically denied Israeli claims about facilities to produce precision-guided missiles in Lebanon. According to Nasrallah, such accusations by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are “lie[s]” to justify Israeli aggression against Lebanon.

Anti-tank missiles fired at Israel from Lebanon, bomb shelters open

“A number of anti-aircraft missiles were fired from Lebanon at an IDF base and military vehicles in the area. There are a number of confirmed hits,” the army said in a statement. The missiles were fired at an Israeli base and IDF vehicles near Moshav Avivim, which is located less than one kilometre from the border with Lebanon. Hezbollah claimed it destroyed a tank. IDF confirms that at least one vehicle was hit. Israel returned fire at targets in southern Lebanon. Residents up to four kilometers from the Lebanon border were directed to open bomb shelters and to remain in their homes, Ynet reports.

Palestinians fire 5 rockets at southern Israel as border riots rage on

The rockets were launched by terrorists on Friday night, setting off red alert sirens in communities in Southern Israel.

By Reuters and Algemeiner Staff

Five rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip toward Israel late Friday night, the Israeli military confirmed after rocket warning sirens sounded in the Israeli border town of Sderot and two nearby villages shortly before midnight.

Israel responded with tank and air strikes on a number of Hamas military targets in the northern Gaza Strip, an Israeli military spokesman said. Palestinian officials said no one was injured.

At the same time, the weekly riots on the Gaza-Israel border continued, with two rioters shot by IDF forces.

An Israeli military spokesman said troops guarding the border on Friday were faced with more than 6,000 demonstrators at several points along the fence, some hurling explosive devices and firebombs. He said that some briefly managed to cross the fence before returning to Gaza, and that Israeli forces responded with riot dispersal measures. Around 210 Palestinians have been killed since the riots began in March 2018, Gaza medical officials say.

Egypt, Qatar, and United Nations officials have been working to keep the border calm in recent months.


DANIEL 8: RAM (IRAN) PUSHING WESTWARD AND SOUTHWARD

Report from World Israel News WIN confirms Iran “pushing westward and southward exactly as prophesied in Daniel 8.

According to the London-based Arabic daily Asharq Al-Awsat, Israel struck two Iranian military sites this month in Iraq. The report, citing Western diplomatic sources, said Israeli stealth F-35 jets hit an Iranian rocket depot northeast of Baghdad on July 19, and on July 28, a base in Iraq that lies just 80 kilometres from the Iranian border in an airstrike. That base reportedly contained a shipment of Iranian ballistic missiles, as well as Iranian “advisers,” the report stated.

Iran’s apparent shift to Iraq comes after an intensive Iranian push in recent years to turn Syria into a missile, drone, and terrorist launchpad against Israel. That attempt ran into a brick wall, in the form of hundreds of Israeli airstrikes that largely prevented the rise of an Iranian war machine in Syria. Iran already established a forward division in Lebanon in the form of Hezbollah, and Israel has no intention of allowing Iran to replicate that success in Syria.

Iran appears to have responded to Israel’s intelligence superiority by re-positioning itself in Iraq. If the latest reports are true, Israel is signalling that it is prepared to use the same effective combination of intelligence and precision firepower to thwart Iranian threats as they form in Iraq, just like it did in Syria.

In addition, it seems that the shadow war between Tehran and Jerusalem in Syria is far from over. Last week, Israeli jets reportedly struck a target in southern Syria’s Tel al-Hara, apparently to stop Iranian-backed forces from seizing control of a strategically important hill that can be used to gather intelligence on Israel.

Reports also surfaced last week of a Hezbollah operative – a Syrian-Druze resident of the village of Khadr, near the Israeli border – being killed after his car exploded as it drove in south Syria.

Iran continues efforts to surround Israel with missiles and hostile forces

Fateh-110 ballistic missiles being fired as part of Iran’s “Great Prophet 7” military exercise

Israel’s “War Between Wars,” the low-profile campaign designed to stop Iran from setting up attack and weapons bases in Syria and beyond, seems to remain highly active. It is a direct response to Iran’s own intensive attempts to build up threats against Israel, including the attempt to flood Syria with missile factories, rocket launchers, drone bases, and terror cells.

Iran has failed to achieve many of its central goals in Syria, so the Iranian Quds Force, led by the notorious Qassem Soleimani, looks determined to set up some of the missile bases on Iraqi soil instead.

A new border crossing being built by Iran that links Syria to Iraq is set to open in the coming two months. The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Centre identified why this crossing is critical to Iran’s ambitions, noting that it is “vital for the land bridge Iran seeks to construct between its territory and the Mediterranean Sea. The route allows Iran to send forces, supplies, and weapons through Iraq to Syria and from there to Lebanon. It can be assumed that Iran is of the opinion that the land bridge will enable it to reduce its dependence on risky aerial and naval routes. The new crossing, when it opens, will enable larger numbers of vehicles to enter Syria and make it easier to preserve secrecy.”

TEMPLE MOUNT IN LAST DAYS BIBLICAL PROPHECY

Netanyahu-Erdogan fight escalates amid high tensions on Temple Mount

“We will continue to defend the rights of the Palestinians and the religious sanctuaries in Jerusalem for the Muslim world until our last breath,” Erdogan said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attacked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, calling him a “murderer who oppresses the Palestinian nation.” Erdogan made his comments in the context of recent tensions on the Temple Mount.

Netanyahu-Erdogan fight escalates amid high tensions on Temple Mount

“We will continue to defend the rights of the Palestinians and the religious sanctuaries in Jerusalem for the Muslim world until our last breath. Instead of ending the occupation, Netanyahu is working to attack me on social networks in order to win votes in the elections,” Erdogan said.

On Tuesday, Netanyahu wrote on Twitter: “The Turkish tyrant Erdogan attacks Israeli democracy, while judges and journalists are sitting in jail. What a joke. Israel is a democracy in which all its citizens have equal rights, including two million Arab citizens.”

The Bible tells us that tension between the surrounding Muslim nations and Israel will only escalate until the Antichrist appears on central stage and for a short time bring an illusory Middle East peace.

I believe beforehand, we are going to see the prophesied Daniel 8, end times (ram/goat invasions). Iran (Shia) invades west (Iraq), north (Syria, Northern Iraq, Eastern Turkey (some Shia Muslims), south (oil rich, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and UAE). To some extent, these prophesied invasions are already underway with Iran forces in Iraq and Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

Daniel 8 tells us Iran’s (Shia) invasion will eventually be countered by Turkey (Sunni). In fact, we are told the goat (Turkey) tramples the ram (Iran) and then we will see a revived Ottoman Empire with its leader, their prophesied Mahdi/Messiah, the Bible’s prophesied Antichrist. Imagine, the support the Mahdi (Islam’s Messiah) will receive from Muslim’s all around the world regardless of the country in which they live and its politics.
