Turkey, Jihad and Prophecy

Michael Mickey 90x115 by Michael Mickey

I know I’ve done it repetitively, but I want to point out, once again, that the nation of Turkey, presently a member of NATO and a candidate nation for membership in the European Union, has a different future than its recent history has been indicative of.

According to Ezekiel 38 & 39, Turkey is to be part of an Russian-Arab confederacy of nations that will attack the nation of Israel in the last days. For many, seeing this as Turkey’s future has been difficult to grasp until now, but are things changing rapidly or what?

Israel and the “Unholy Trinity” of Ezekiel 38-39

Chris Schang 90x115 by Chris Schang 

Over the last few weeks and months I have found myself truly astonished at the speed of which Bible prophecy appears to be unfolding on the world scene. If one looks back towards the election and inauguration of President Barak Obama one will notice that around the same time things started to change for Israel and the Middle East in general. With the inauguration of President Obama looming in early 2009, Israel was pressured into ending the war with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas during Operation Cast Lead. This pressure resulted in Israel not finishing their objective of wiping out Hamas and their military infrastructure. Instead, Israel prematurely ended the war in order to appease the incoming U.S. administration who did not want to enter office with the Middle East in outright war mode. This turned out to be a huge mistake for Israel and has set in motion the current situation where Israel finds itself in an even worse situation than before and after Operation Cast Lead. Not only have the terrorist organizations on the borders with Israel gotten stronger, but they have also gotten the bigger players in the region such as Iran, Turkey, Russia and Syria to increase and amplify their anti-semitic propaganda and threats.
