Who are the Palestinians, really?

The Palestinian People

“He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon” (Daniel 11:41).

Where are these ancient, biblical countries that God speaks of? Edom, Moab and Ammon are all in modern-day Jordan. Why would these cities be safe from the coming Muslim invasion? Jordan is a Muslim country that supports the PLO and an independent Palestinian state. They also have a vast amount of control over the Temple Mount. God warns us of a coming invasion into Jerusalem, but He also tells us specifically that these cities shall escape. Now we know why.

Before Islam was even created, God forewarned us of this occultic religion of Islam. How could John, banished to Patmos, see into the future to tell us that not only will Israel be surrounded by Muslims, but these Muslim countries shall escape the coming devastation? Why will they escape? Because they will participate in the coming invasion and help slaughter Jews where they find them.

Who are the Palestinian people? Are they these ancient people that have inhabited Israel for thousands of years? These poor, destitute and persecuted people that have had their land stolen from them? Let’s examine that for a moment.

We know historically that the land was indeed named Israel. God changed Jacob’s name to Israel, which literally means to “struggle with God.”

Israel has indeed struggled and continues to struggle today. So where did the name Palestine come from?

The holy Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD by Emperor Vespasian at the hands of his son, Titus. The political climate in Jerusalem in 70 AD was just as it was four decades earlier when Christ walked the earth. Look at the political climate in the United States today and it’s very easy to see how Jesus could be betrayed and handed over to His opposition.

Famous first-century historian, Josephus, who was present for the temple destruction, said that afterwards you could stand in the middle of Jerusalem and not know where you were. The Romans had cut down every tree for 10 miles around the city. It was utterly destroyed. Before the Roman destruction, the temple was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Historian Josephus also tells us, “He who has not seen the temple of Herod has never seen beauty.” The gold around the temple made you look away at certain times of day. It was magnificent.

Mark 13:1 says, “Then as He went out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, Teacher, see what manner of stones and buildings are here!”

The disciple saw the splendor, the gold, and the beauty. But Jesus replied, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone shall be left upon another that shall not be thrown down” (Mark 13:2).

Almost four decades later, after His crucifixion and resurrection, the entire city was destroyed. The temple was destroyed—not a rock left standing. Roman soldiers pried the stones apart to get melted gold. They then took those they didn’t kill to turn them into slaves and used them to build their Coliseum, among other things – the future Coliseum where so many Christians lost their lives. There is a Roman coin depicting this very destruction. Rome suddenly turned it’s fury on all things Christian.

Why did people hate these new followers of Jesus? Decades after He was crucified, those who spread His message or just believed were killed in massive numbers. If this man Jesus had been crucified and simply was never heard of again, would the first followers have been so adamant about their newfound religion? Would a book written by mere men with no inspiration from God Himself have survived 2,000 years?

The first Christians were truly put to the test. They were not simply told they can’t say “Merry Christmas.” They were thrown to starving lions, burned alive, and torn limb from limb. All in the name of Christ, literally. They spread their message all over what is commonly known today as the Middle East. Many of the first churches were set up in modern-day Turkey, which the Ottoman Empire destroyed.

Peter and Paul survived and spread Christ’s message the longest. From historical records it appears both were killed under Emperor Nero. Paul had been arrested on previous occasions, and his Roman citizenship granted him the fairness of a hearing and ultimate release. A fire broke out in the city and immediately Christians were blamed. It is said that Rome burned as Nero played his fiddle, and that Christians were dipped in pitch and set ablaze to light his gardens. What hatred! What contempt!

Revelations 12:17 says, “And the dragon was enraged with the woman [Israel], and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Christians ARE the offspring.

Thus, the new religion of Christians, who proclaimed without a hint of shame that Jesus was indeed God, was spreading and spreading fast. Rome was not happy. For a King or governor or emperor to hear that this man Jesus was the King of Kings angered many in power. To put it in perspective: Kings, queens, emperor’s etc., killed their own bloodline off to make sure nobody could make a claim to the throne. Then you have these Christians who are spreading in numbers; and they refuse to worship or bow down to the many Roman gods, and even the emperors of the time.

That act alone upset many Romans. Not only were they hated by the Romans but they were hated by the Jewish people, who still feel it is blasphemy to claim Jesus is God’s Son and the Messiah. The very first martyr for Jesus was Stephen, and his sin was “transgression of faith” from Judaism. The first Christians were thrown into coliseums for refusing to renounce Christ and acknowledge the numerous Roman gods. They refused to worship any man above the Lamb of God—The King of Kings.

Nero was emperor for a short time, but his hatred for Christians and his murder of two of Christ’s disciples, Peter and Paul, has made him unforgettable throughout time. Fast forward 49 years to 117 AD and that brings you to Emperor Hadrian and where Palestine comes from. Not only did Hadrian hate Christians, but he hated the Jew as well.

In 130 AD, Hadrian visited Jerusalem. Jerusalem was still in ruins from its destruction in 70 AD. Hadrian rebuilt the city and named it Aelia Capitolina. Though the temple had been destroyed and the city completely destroyed other than the Roman fortress, Jews did start coming back. And for those that started to go back to Israel, what did their journey bring them? What must they have seen when they arrived? No temple. It was gone.

Hadrian then erected a temple built to the god, Jupiter, on the exact spot where the Jewish holy temple stood less than 50 years before. There was a massive revolt which ended with over half a million Jews being killed and 1,000 Israeli towns destroyed.

The ancient Philistines were ancient Israel’s enemy. They warred for hundreds of years. In fact Goliath was a Philistine. They were people that lived just southwest of Israel near the Jordan River. They were warmongers and a murderous people. God spoke many times of the Philistines. Archaeologists can find no trace of the Philistine people. Perhaps this is why in Zechariah 2:5 God finally judges the Philistines, and they no longer are a relevant people in history.

So then, what better way to punish and utterly decimate an entire race of people, and not only the people but their history, heritage and ultimately their God? There were no longer Philistines at the time of Hadrian’s rule. Changing the name of Israel to Palestine was a way to disconnect the Jews from their holy land and rename their beloved Israel after their sworn enemies.

Over a half million Jews were slaughtered between 132-136 BC, which is known as the Bar Kokhba Revolt. Hadrian ordered public burnings of the Torah and prohibited any observance of Judaism. Is it any wonder the name Jacob, where Israel gets her name, means to struggle with God? Israel has always struggled. Israel’s offspring has always struggled and will continue to struggle until Christ’s return.

Satan has been attacking and trying to destroy Israel’s offspring (Christians) since Christ’s crucifixion. His crucifixion wasn’t a defeat; it was a victory and Satan knew it. So he has set out to destroy us for 2,000 years.

He worked through Herod to destroy Jesus and failed. Jesus was victorious on the cross, so His followers have taken the punishment for His victory. By destroying us, Satan thinks he destroys Him. For 2,000 years he has tried through many different world powers, including Nebuchadnezzar, to destroy the Jewish people. But, Christians are hated even more. Don’t we represent Christ’s victory on the cross?

There are three main religions in the world: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Judaism was created over 3,500 years ago and Christianity was founded over 2,000 years ago, with both religions continuing to grow and thrive since their foundation. Both religions can absolutely trace their history and origins to not only the land of Israel, but to Jerusalem. Although most Jews deny that Jesus is the Messiah and the Son of God, they do not, however, deny that Jesus was Jewish and that he was born of a Jewish mother and went to synagogue and studied Torah.

Almost 3,000 years after Judaism began and over 600 years after Christianity began, Islam was born. Islam was created by a man named Muhammad who claimed he had a vision from a holy spirit he thought was Gabriel. Muhammad, while in these trance-like states, would have seizures and foam at the mouth.

Through these visions he had, he created a new religion called Islam. In doing so, Gods promise to Abraham, Hagar and Ishmael was fulfilled. Ishmael’s offspring has indeed become as numerous as the stars. Muhammad spread his new religion by way of the sword, just the opposite of how Jesus spread His message. Islam, under Ottoman rule, conquered Jerusalem in 1517 and took it as its own.

What the Muslims and the world fail to realize or refuse to admit is that, in 1312 BC, Israel became a nation. They have a 3,300 year proven history in Jerusalem—two thousand years before Islam was ever created. King David created the city of Jerusalem, while Muhammad never once visited.

In 1541 the Muslims sealed off the Golden Gate in Jerusalem, because prophecy foretold that the Messiah would enter through that gate. And Suleiman, the Ottoman leader, wanted to prevent Jesus from entering and fulfilling prophecy. What they failed to realize is Jesus already entered that gate, and Ezekiel prophesied that the gate would in fact be sealed.

Ezekiel 44:1-3 “Then He brought me back to the outer gate of the sanctuary which faces toward the east, but it was shut. And the Lord said to me, ‘This gate shall be shut; it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter by it, because the Lord God of Israel has entered by it; therefore it shall be shut. As for the prince, because he is the prince, he may sit in it to eat bread before the Lord; he shall enter by way of the vestibule of the gateway, and go out the same way.’”

Around 610 AD, according to some Muslim sources, the newly created religion of Islam and its followers began praying toward the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This is known as the first Qiblah. The Jews and even Christians living in Jerusalem in 610 greeted Islam with hostility (any wonder why?). Some say it was only after this that Muhammad changed the direction of Islamic prayer so that they now pray facing Mecca, their holiest site, with their backs to the Temple Mount. Other Muslim sources say Muhammad received a “revelation” to pray towards Mecca.

Jerusalem is a city, mind you, that Muhammad never actually visited. Jerusalem is not even mentioned by name in the Quran—not mentioned in the Quran even once; BUT Jerusalem is mentioned 806 times in the ancient writings of the Bible. Jews have thousands of years of history before Islam was even created, and Christians over 1,000 by the time Ottoman rule took over in Jerusalem through conquest.

Let’s fast forward to the rebirth of Israel. The Bible tells us it would be born in one day, and it was. The Jews started immigrating back to their ancient, rightful homeland. But what about these Palestinians we hear of today and for the last four decades. Jews always maintained a presence in Jerusalem; for 3,700 hundred years they have maintained a presence, especially in Judea and Samaria. And right after that comes Christians. So where do the Palestinians come in? The Palestinian people were originally Jordanians, Egyptians and Saudi’s.

King Abdullah in 1948 said “Palestine and Jordan are one.” And then King Hussein in 1981 said, “The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan.” Earlier, in 1970, Prince Hassan had said the same thing but went a step further, saying, “There is only one land, with one history and one and the same fate.” This was the Prince speaking of Jordan.

Jordan also controls the Temple Mount. Why Israel agreed to that I will never know. They were called ONE people living in two states. In 1948 Jordan took control of the West bank (Judea and Samaria) where the holiest sites are and barred Jews from entering. They then tore down or completely destroyed 59 synagogues and desecrated Jewish graves. In 1950 Jordan annexed the West Bank.

Why didn’t we hear of the “Palestinians” before the last few decades? Why is there no “Palestinian culture” or “Palestinian cuisine?” A Palestinian language? Archeological evidence of their ancestors? The Jewish people find ancient evidence of their ancestors daily. Nothing to prove “Palestinian” existence has ever been found.

It wasn’t until 1967 that Arabs demanded an independent state of Palestine and we started to hear the first murmurings of the Palestinian people. This was after the Six-Day War in which they attacked Israel unprovoked. Only then did we suddenly hear of these Palestinian people. Yasser Arafat, the champion for the PLO and all things Palestinian, wasn’t even Palestinian. He was actually born in Egypt. Nobody really wanted or cared about Jerusalem until the Jews returned and made it bloom.

Isaiah 27:6 “He shall cause them that come from Jacob to take root, Israel shall blossom and bud and fill the face of the world with fruit.”

The Jews turned a barren wasteland into a thriving country. In 1867 Mark Twain visited the Holy Land and described it as “a desolate country…given over wholly to weeds – a silent mournful expanse.” Of the Jezreel Valley in Israel’s lower Galilee region, he said, “There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent—not for 30 miles in either direction.”

Mark Twain also said that Jerusalem was desolate and devoid of inhabitants. So where were these Palestinian’s with the long ancient history in Jerusalem? They were not there because they did not exist. They were still living in mostly Jordan. Jordan annexed the west bank, created these refugees and blamed Israel. Suddenly they were Israel’s problem. Suddenly the world felt sorry for these people, and the holocaust of the Jews faded. These newly invented people were suddenly the victims by the oppressive bully Israel.

Israel has tried numerous times to have peace talks with the Palestinian leaders. They do NOT want peace. They do not want the Jews in Jerusalem or even Israel. Any peace deal they sign in the future, God says will be broken.

Jerusalem has a long history, and that history has always included Jews, not Palestinians. Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish people; better yet, it belongs to God and it is not to be divided. Christians need to remember that. Christians should never be for a two-state solution. By agreeing, you are saying God’s land should be divided.

I know your works and where you dwell

“You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.’ Thus says the Lord God: ‘Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?’” (Eze 38:16-17).

Noah had a son named Japheth who had a son named Magog who settled Turkey or RUSSIA. Gog is a shortened version of Magog. Gog is the land that Magog ruled over.

Gomer, Meshech, Tubal and Magog all have ancient ties to one another.

The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.

“Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: ‘Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you’” (Eze 38:2-6).

Jerome, a prominent church leader (345–420 A.D.), said the land of Magog was north of the Caucasus Mountains, near the Caspian Sea. Josephus, first-century author and historian, associated the name “Magog” with the Scythians. A major group of Scythians lived near the Black Sea. So, the land of Magog was located near the Black and Caspian Seas north of the Caucasus Mountains, which today would be today’s southern Russia.

Greek writers called the people of Meshech the “Moschoi,” and Assyrian’s referred to them as the “Muski.” They settled around modern-day Armenia. Armenia borders Russia, Iran and Turkey – three of the nations to attack Israel.

The people of Tubal were located in the central part of Turkey immediately west of Togarmah.

Remember, biblically, every location spoken comes from the standpoint of being in Jerusalem, not the West. When many people think of World War Three, they think of Armageddon, but there ARE other wars that precede this final battle before Christ returns.

“O ASSYRIAN, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few” (Isaiah 10:5-7).

The Assyrian is the Antichrist, while the Antichrist and Gog are different people.

The Gog war brings specific nations together against Israel (Eze 38:2-9), whereas the battle of Armageddon brings all nations of the earth together to do battle in Israel.

This invasion by Gog and her allies is to take spoil from Israel (Eze 38:12-13; 39:10). But Armageddon is to destroy Israel and unite in war against Christ (Rev 16:12).

There is also no mention of a peace deal with the Gog invasion, but the Antichrist violates a peace agreement leaving Israel betrayed (Dan 9:27).

The Gog nations apparently do not reach Jerusalem, as there is no mention of Jerusalem. Instead, the invading armies fall on the mountains and open fields of Israel. This would most likely be the Golan Heights that Israel recaptured from Syria during the 1967 war (Eze 39:4-5).

There is no mention of the end-time plagues and judgments before the invasion lead by Gog, but the battle of Armageddon will be preceded by several plagues and judgments.

The defeat of Gog’s invading armies will lead to a massive spiritual revival in Israel because the defeat could only come from God. But there is no mention of Christ (Eze 38:23; 39:21-22).

Armageddon, on the other hand, brings spiritual renewal of Israel under the New Covenant where Israel accepts Christ (Jer 31:31-34; Zech 12:10).

In Ezekiel 39:4 Gog will be killed in battle, while Revelation 19:20 says the Antichrist will be thrown alive into the Lake of Fire.

The nation of Israel must be returned to the God of their fathers before they will begin to recognize and accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah—the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God uses Gog’s invasion to awaken His people.

Magog, Meshech, and Tubal are ancient people. They were also brothers. Togarmah is the son of Gomer. They are of the first families to resettle the world after Noah’s flood. They began to settle together in modern-day Turkey. Turkey plays a significant role in the last days according to the Bible.

Revelation Chapter 2, verse 12-13: “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write: These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is…”

Jesus tells us He knows where Satan’s seat is – in Pergamos, Turkey. This was referring to a massive altar that sat on a hill in Pergamum. The Greeks originally built the enormous structure in the 2nd century B.C. as a temple dedicated to Zeus. Interestingly, the altar was sent to Berlin in the 19th century. In 1934, Hitler ordered construction of the Tribune at Zeppelin Field in Nuremberg specifically for the purpose of his Nazi rallies. There are many false and pagan gods described in the Bible, but only one was openly referred to as Satan.

What is also interesting is, Turkey, after failing to convince Germany to return the altar, built an exact replica of the ancient altar on the same ancient site in Pergamum.

The seven spirits or churches are in Turkey, and five of the eight Gog nations were within Turkey. The Bible has continued to highlight Turkey for a reason.

The Bible emphasizes in Isaiah and Micah the future conflict between the Messiah and the Assyrian, who was a type of Antichrist. These prophecies also point us to the regions of the ancient Assyrian Empire, which held large portions of modern Turkey.

Turkey is located in the center of the Caucasus region, Middle East and the Balkans; this is undoubtedly the most unstable region in the world. Despite Turkey’s western ties since World War Two, her history is deeply rooted in an anti-Christian and anti-Jewish spirit. That spirit has again surfaced under Erdogan’s leadership.

Muslims feel Islam must be re-established where it was wounded. Her wound came in 1924 with the fall of the Ottoman Empire, in Turkey.

The KJV describes the Antichrist as “Stout” in Daniel 7:20.

“And of the ten horns that were on his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.”

The Merriam’s dictionary definition of the word stout is:

Strong of character: such as BRAVE, BOLD, FIRM, DETERMINED. Also: OBSTINATE, UNCOMPROMISING, FORCEFUL; also violent.

Recep Erdogan became prime minister of Turkey in 2003, and in 2014 became its president. He is a devout Muslim. He has stirred up many people across the Middle East with his fierce animosity towards Israel. He has a strong and commanding presence and wants to be considered the Islamic superpower in the Middle East.

Erdogan has taken a strong hold of many Muslims, and he is pushing for Islamic pride and unity among Arab nations. His commanding presence has even had some Muslims refer to him as “god” and to also worship him.

While most Middle Eastern leaders are being besieged, exiled or even killed, Turkey’s President Erdogan is popular, and that popularity is gaining. He is under no threat of losing his power. In fact, the Bible tells us he will gain power.

Ezekiel tells us that Russia, in alliance with Turkey and Iran, will gather a massive army against Israel, to plunder the land.

When these nations move against Israel, a few other nations like Sheba and Dedan (Saudi Arabia), the merchants of Tarshish (from UK) with all the young lions thereof (would include US) will ask what this coalition is doing. They are supposed to be stabilizing Syria, but they will suddenly head to Israel – most likely to the contested Golan Heights (Ezekiel 38:13).

During the 1967 war, in addition to the Golan Heights, Jerusalem was also recaptured by the IDF. For the first time in almost 2,000 years, the Jewish people were in control of the Temple Mount. Instead of immediately removing any remnants of pagan gods, they not only left the mosques and blasphemies, they gave Jordan control of it.

God said on this mountain in Jerusalem, He will place His name.

Deuteronomy 12:3 “And you shall overthrow their altars, and break their stone idols, and burn their idol poles with fire; and you shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.”

“Then the angel of the Lord came to Gilgal to Bochim, and said: I led you up from Egypt and brought you to the land of which I swore to your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you. And you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall tear down their altars. But you have not obeyed my voice. Why have you done this? Therefore I also said, I will not drive them out before you; but they shall be thorns in your side, and their gods shall be a snare to you (Judges 2:1-3).

The Jewish people were warned by God not to allow pagan worship near them. DESTROY FALSE GODS AND THEIR ALTARS. They didn’t do that. Now, fifty years later, Jerusalem is still being disputed; temples (mosques) remain on God’s mountain, and the Jews are not even allowed to pray on their own ancient Temple Mount.

Everything God has warned the Jewish people not to do, they have ignored.

As Israel continues to be surrounded by her enemies, Trump’s peace plan is about to be revealed any day. Meanwhile, Erdogan is vowing to launch a new invasion into the Kurdish region of Syria, which borders Turkey. He’s already been killing the Kurds on a smaller, quieter scale, and nobody has said anything!

Jeremiah 49:23 “Against Damascus. Hama and Arpad are shamed, For they have heard bad news. They are fainthearted; There is trouble on the sea; It cannot be quiet.”

Hamah and Arpad are modern-day Tel Rifaat. In the 48 hours following Pres. Trump’s decision to let Erdogan control Syria, militants have started shelling areas near Tel Rifaat which is supposed to be a de-escalation zone. The residents are in fear of the coming Turkish military. Turkey being in control of Syria has made many fainthearted indeed.

A Turkish journalist, Hamza Tekin, recently said: “Turkey has now entered the stage of final preparations or the final touch, as it is called, of the military operation. There is a final resolution of launching the operation […]. We might be left with a few hours or days; at any moment, the military operation might start.”

“Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, And all the men of war shall be cut off in that day,” says the Lord of hosts. ‘I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, And it shall consume the palaces of Ben-Hadad” (Jer 49:26-27).

The Bible tells us Damascus will be destroyed in one night, in one hour. Not only will Damascus cease from being a city, even the palaces are destroyed. This would be Bashar Al Assad’s Presidential palace in Damascus.

Turkey, Russia and Iran have been meeting together a lot over the last year. They are planning a new Syria, with a new “constitution” of sorts. They are discussing how to bring “peace and safety” to the Mediterranean. The media tells the narrative that Erdogan wants Assad removed from power, but does he really? It seems that has changed.

In 2017, Erdogan attended a summit in Russia where he sat down with Assad’s two primary allies, Vladimir Putin and Iran’s Hassan Rouhani. They reportedly discussed a solution for the Syrian conflict.

When he was asked if Ankara was ready to work with the Assad regime against the Kurdish-ruled north Syria, he said:

“In politics, the doors are open until the very last moment… What may happen tomorrow is tied to the circumstances then.”

When asked about the possibility of reestablishing relations with Damascus, he said: “It is not right to rule out anything on this issue.”

Turkey and Iran are united on the Kurds and have met several times over the YPG and PKK, while Netanyahu has accused Turkey of massacring the Kurdish people. Russia has had a friendly relationship with the Kurdish people, making it plausible they will turn to Russia for help after the U.S. withdrawal.

Out of chaos and war come peaceful negotiations. In comes the Trump peace plan. Erdogan will be drawn to accept this deal. What this peace plan brings is a lie from Erdogan’s lips. He, along with other Islamic leaders, will acknowledge or confirm that the Jews have a historical right to Jerusalem through ancient biblical ties.

The Bible says the Antichrist will confirm a covenant with many, not just Israel.

Erdogan is on a mission to rebuild the Ottoman Empire, which ruled over Jerusalem politically and religiously for four centuries. Erdogan wants Jerusalem, and he’s telling us he’s going to take it. He is also telling us he is going to slaughter the Kurds, and NOBODY is listening or they simply don’t care.

He wants all of Islam to unify and fight for Jerusalem, and sees it as his role to lead the Islamic battle for this purpose. He can’t have Mecca so He will take Jerusalem by force. Turkey is becoming the magnet to many Muslim nations and wants nothing more than to place an ally in power in Syria. Turkey is also the bridge between The Middle East and Europe.

Trump needs Erdogan’s help in managing the Black Sea to contain Russia’s expanding hold on the region. Everyone sees Russia as the only major threat, completely ignoring Erdogan, and especially ignoring Bible prophecy.

The recent development puts the Kurds in a position of being alone in Syria without U.S. participation. Israel has especially grown concerned with President Trump’s sudden withdrawal in Syria.

The three major nations that invade Israel (Russia, Turkey and Iran) are on the Israeli border, without the U.S. Will the Gog war of Ezekiel be what brings the cries for peace and safety in Israel?

The Kurds are the modern descendants of the ancient Medes. They are an Indo-European people that aligned with the Persians (Iran) during their successful military campaign to overthrow ancient Babylon. This established them as a world power in the 6th century BC. The Persians, who joined the Medes mid-campaign, ended up becoming the superpower in their coalition. Together, the Medes and the Persians reigned for over 200 years until Alexander the Great defeated them.

Turkey views Kurdish forces allied with both the U.S. and Israel as terrorists. Military experts have said that the Turkish military will engage the Kurds – not if, but when, and they will turn to Iran with Trump’s withdrawal. God said what is has already been.

The possibility of a free Kurdistan nation isn’t popular among non-Kurds. Turkey has fought with its own Kurdish population in a decades-long conflict that has resulted in 30,000 to 40,000 Kurds being killed since 1984. The Syrian regime repressed any Kurdish rights in the area, and Saddam Hussein slaughtered tens of thousands of Kurds in the country’s north. He gassed them, leading to babies being born with deformities years later.

Israel is the only nation that has openly endorsed a free Kurdistan nation. With the U.S. present in Syria, Turkey was held at bay. Now there is nothing to stop him from moving through Syria and towards Israel.

Christians in the Middle East share a bond with the Kurds, as they are both minorities. This doesn’t mean they always agree politically, but both being persecuted in the region has led to a relationship of sorts.

In 2016 Peter Galbraith, US diplomat, said, “The Kurdish areas have its own government that functions well, has its own military, it has a source of revenue, and the population almost unanimously supports independence… so it’s a door that needs to be walked through.”

In response to Erdogan’s latest threats to invade the Kurdish region of Syria, the Pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) denounced it with a statement that read: “President Erdoğan and his government should abandon this irrational stance which will lead to destruction and suffering in the region. We urge the national and international public to show alertness towards such threats and not to remain silent.”

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” (2 Thes 2:3-4).

The little horn spoken of by Daniel will come “up among them,” meaning from the 10 horns that were the kingdoms of Western Europe (Daniel 7:8).

In Daniel 7:4 the Bible says he will be DIFFERENT from the other nations. Turkey is certainly different than the other nations, being that they are all European nations, while Turkey has been fighting for membership.

In Daniel 7:8 we are told that he will uproot three Kingdoms. Many fear a slaughter of Christians and Kurdish people is coming, with Erdogan leading the way.  In Daniel 7:21 we read that the Antichrist will in fact kill those that don’t worship the beast. Great and small, free and bond, rich and poor.

The Bible tells us he would emerge from the Roman Empire, which will be the fourth kingdom (Daniel 7:7-8).

Modern-day Turkey was in fact a part of the Roman Empire. Remember, the soldiers from the 10th Roman legion were of Turkish and Syrian descent.

The Bible goes on to say that God’s people, the saints, would “be given into his hand” for “a time and times and half a time” (Daniel 7:25).

With all of the uncertainty in the Middle East right now, one thing is certain. God knows what He is doing. He is in control, and the hooks have been placed into the Jaws of Gog.

Within days of the US announcing its withdrawal from Syria, Israel launched attacks on Iranian facilities in Damascus (just after two suspicious Iranian cargo planes took off from there). After the Israeli airstrikes, Russia accused Israel of a “gross violation of Syria’s sovereignty. They also accused Israel of jeopardizing civilian flights.

Where Israeli-Russian ties have warmed over the last couple of years, they have suddenly hit freezing mode. Russia is set to meet with the leader of Hamas, and Israel is furiously objecting, to which Russia has shrugged. The relationship began to cool after Israel was blamed for a Russian military plane accidentally getting shot down by Syria while engaging Israeli military jet fighters. 2,500 years ago, the prophet Ezekiel gave us these prophecies, and today, we are watching them come to fruition.

President Trump’s “sudden” withdrawal may not be as sudden as some think, and it very likely has everything to do with his coming peace proposal. But with his withdrawal, the three leading nations of the Gog invasion are going to feel emboldened. Through their arrogance, God will use them to bring Israel back to Him, paving the way for the return of His Son, Jesus Christ.

1 Thess 5:3-5 “For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.”

Welcome! My purpose is to study Gods word and spread His message through my writing…

As Christians, we are to put on the whole armor of God and not be deceived in these last days. Join me, as I show you through current geopolitical events, that the return of Jesus Christ is near, and what role Islam, the Vatican and the global politics across the world play.

You don’t have to be a Christian to see the change in the world. You don’t have to be a Christian to take notice of the huge increases in rape, assault and murder. Christian persecution is on the rise as are attacks on Jews. Gods people are under attack and it will only get worse.

Jesus said He did not come to unite or bring peace. He came to bring a sword. What is His sword? It’s the word of God. When you can debate with an unbeliever and use Gods word to destroy their argument, You’ve used the sword of God.

The Luciferian Globalist agenda has been unleashed. The Globalists want bridges not borders. They want a unified world. This is in direct contradiction to Gods word. In Babylon, the first attempt at globalization was stopped by God. He confused their language and the people gave up on the tower and settled in different areas.

Islam has played a major role in the reshaping of our world. The spirit of Antichrist has taken hold of the world and its christians, the light of the world, that are called to spread the gospel.

Spreading the gospel doesn’t mean you have to repeatedly try and share Christ’s message if it’s rejected, but it’s good if you do. The Bible tells us to shake the dust from our feet and move on to the next town. There are  many more who will welcome the gospel, some will still reject Him, while others will accept Him. If they don’t have the Holy Spirit, they will never accept Christ without it.

God told us of the signs to come before the return of His Son, Jesus. We were even warned not to be deceived and how we could be. Jesus told us He will NOT be in the “inner or upper rooms.” Who owns the upper room in Jerusalem? The Vatican. So in other words if you hear the Pope say,Jesus is here in the upper room, IT’S A LIE.

He also told us He will not be in the desert. What is in the desert? Numerous Islamic countries, including Turkey. Jesus is not returning to Iraq or Turkey or Saudi Arabia. He specifically told us HOW and WHERE He is returning. To the Mount of Olives, where He departed. He left in the clouds and will return on the clouds, in great glory.

Remember biblically speaking, everything that happens is all in relation to and relevant to Israel. Israel is the center of everything in the Bible, and in these last days, Israel has never been more important or volatile. God said He’d make Jerusalem a trembling cup and it certainly is.

What happens to,and around Israel, IS the world. God is not in heaven with the American flag draped over His shoulders. Gods hand is involved, there is no doubt of that. The United States is the largest Christian nation in the world and God has blessed this nation again because we have blessed Israel.

My articles are something I write while studying scripture, praying and watching our geopolitical world in action. I won’t just throw something out there, I study and write my articles in  hope I can make as many people understand bible prophecy and the last days we are living in, because it’s all right there, in the Bible.

I pray that you will learn something new, or understand something you didn’t grasp before. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we must learn from one another, pray for one another and most of all, spread the gospel to the ends of the earth!

God Bless you all.

Vanessa 🙏🙏😇😇💖💖
