since I have provided this information, we have seen (via Vaadat
Orchim) that Turkey is parlaying and weighing her odds for
partnership to her greatest advantage: Russia (and the Caucasus),
Saudi Arabia, or Iran. Either – or all - of the three, as
bedfellows, will still have the stamp of Islam.
THE ROLE OF TURKEY IN PROPHECYTurkey is the only Muslim nation in the Middle East to have formal diplomatic relations with Israel. But according to the Prophet Ezekiel, Turkey (Togarmah) turns its back on the West, allies itself with the Islamic confederation led by Iran (Persia) and is a participant in the Gog-Magog War. We have seen this happen recently!
What would it take to drive Turkey into an alliance with Iran, Saudi Arabia, and ultimately, the Russians? I asked that question in my podcast of 28 February 2009, "Israel: A Plain Path", “What would it take to drive Turkey into an alliance with Iran, Saudi Arabia, and ultimately, the Russians?” Evidently, the ANSWER is, “Not much,” because in just one month since I asked this question, Turkish premier Erdogan was wooing Iran and its radical clients, while cutting loose from the West and driving Ankara's ties with Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel into the ground. Also, Turkish president Gul was courting Russia and Armenia to build up a stake in the Caucasian and Caspian regions.
Moscow has quietly brought a newcomer (Turkey) into its fold by integrating Russian-Armenian air defenses.
Just as Ezekiel prophesied, Russia, Turkey, and Iran are aligning to
form a confederacy (with others) to attack Israel. (Read Ezekiel
Chapters 38 and 39.)
LISTEN TO EZEKIEL NOW, ISRAEL
Ezekiel was a watchman for Israel in his day; but more importantly, for Israel TODAY.
He was used by G-d during and after the three (3) sieges of Jerusalem
during his time. Daniel was taken into captivity during the first siege
of Jerusalem. Ezekiel was taken into captivity during the second siege
of Jerusalem and prophesied the fall of Jerusalem while in captivity in
Babylon. While Ezekiel prophesied to the children of Israel in Babylon
where he was carried away in the captivity, Jeremiah prophesied to the
children of Israel in Jerusalem. They both prophesied the fall of
Jerusalem. Concurrently, Daniel was being used by G-d in the court and
government of Babylon.
G-d always has His prophets and watchers positioned, and He always warns His people. “Surely the Lord YHWH will do nothing, Unless he reveals his secret to his servants the prophets.” (Tanakh: Amos 3:7)
Notice, the people in the days of Jeremiah and Ezekiel were like many today. They regard prophecy only as it pertains to the past, but do NOT discern the message as it pertains to today or to the future. When Yeshua was on earth he told the Pharisees and the religious scribes, “You can discern (signs of) the weather, but not the (signs of) the times.”
The first 24 chapters of Ezekiel deal with the period of time surrounding the fall of Jerusalem under Nebuchadnezzar, and focus on Israel. Chapters 25 through 32 focus on the judgment of God against the enemies of Israel, all of which in hindsight may today be viewed as Muslim nations, even though the false religion of Islam was NOT started until the 7th Century A.D. (or C.E.).
Starting with Chapters 34 through 39 Ezekiel is used by G-d to foretell the regathering of the children of Israel from the Gentile nations (from the dispersion, or Diaspora among the goyim). Then in Chapters 40 through 48 Ezekiel tells about and describes the Millennial Kingdom: the reign of Messiah and of the Prince in Jerusalem.
This Kingdom Age will be manifest by Jerusalem being the headquarters,
not only of Israel, but of the whole world. The nations of the world
will be subservient to the King: the LION from the Tribe of Judah.
WHAT IS EZEKIEL SAYING TODAY
1. Russia, Turkey, Iran and other Middle East and North East African nations will form an alliance to attack Israel. This we know for sure.
2. G-d will defeat this alliance of Magog and others on the hills of Israel, and leave only 17 percent of them.
3. It will take seven months to bury the dead bodies, and seven years to burn the implements of war (probably radioactive elements).
4. The victory for Israel will be so great and miraculous that ALL nations will realize that the G-d of Israel is the LORD.
5. There will be an earthly Kingdom established (after another great war where Messiah wipes out all the enemies of Israel) where the Messiah rules from Jerusalem. All nations and their leaders must be subservient to the King.
HOW TO RESPOND
Realize that before the LORD wipes out the Magog Alliance on the hills of Israel (Ezekiel 38 and 39), there is an attack planned upon Israel by Iran. This is evident by Iranian posture and declarations, by Intel, and by present geopolitical climate. This attack is imminent.
Right now, Israel is in the position of a woman with a child in her womb, awaiting the promise of birth: the prophetic promise when the child will be exalted to the place of destiny. Meanwhile, Israel must defend herself – and the promise - until the day when G-d Almighty will defeat the the Magog Alliance.Let me give you an example: If you know your relative automatically WINS the lottery in "X" years and will give it all to you, wouldn't the practical thing to do be to keep them alive until they WIN?! In the same manner, you must keep Israel alive NOW, until the battle where G-d destroys Iran with Russia and her allies.
In my Tues, 23 September 2008 podcast, "Israel: Times of the Signs," I mentioned WHY Russia is cavorting with Iran and other Islamic states. One out of three Russians is Islamic. On the home front, Russia has traditional enemies to the West and East: Germany to the west; China and Japan to the East. Russia has to turn to the South for help: the radicals are Iran, Syria, and Libya. That’s WHY Russia is building nuclear plants in Iran: for research and for training.
Russia is afraid of the RADICAL Islamic Shiites (core base is in Iran) causing trouble in Russia in the big five Muslim areas. Therefore, it was advantageous for Russia to strike a deal with Iran to control the Shiites: to stop them (at least temporarily) from causing problems in Russia.
Iran agrees to NOT cause problems in Russia.
Iran receives nuclear help and training from Russia.
Also, a military commitment from Russia to back Iran in case of war.
emerging confluence of Islamic power structure, with Turkey as the
centroid, will be an even greater united force against Israel.
leadership must be mindful that the Tanakh specifically, and in
numerous places, declares that ALL the nations which Messiah fights
against when He returns are Islamic. (We know this by
reason of geographical and etymological description).
The amalgam of the power(s) of the North to which Ezekiel prophesied are forming. Also, Iran is extending its influence physically to Eritrea and Somalia in the Horn of Africa. Tuesday, February 24, 2009, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad agreed to help establish vocational and technical centers in Djibouti in the East African Horn.
Notice the prophecy of Ezekiel where he shows the Northern powers aligned with the African powers and Iran against Israel in the last days.
“The word of YHWH came to me (Ezekiel), saying,
Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say,
Thus says the Lord YHWH: Behold, I am against you, Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal:
I will turn you about, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them handling swords;
Gomer, and all his troops; the house of Togarmah from the (far) north, and all his troops; even many people with you.
Be prepared, yes, prepare yourself, you, and all your companies who are assembled to you, and be a guard to them.After many days you shall be visited: in the latter years you shall come into the land that is brought back from the sword, that is gathered out of many peoples, on the mountains of Israel, which have long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations (goyim), and now all of them dwell safely.” (Tanakh: Ezekiel 38:1-8)
So now we see clearly the Northern powers, the African powers, and Iran – of which Ezekiel prophesied – in alignment. This conglomerate of Islamic force will attack Israel; however, they will be soundly defeated by YHWH so much that all the nations will recognize the Adonai is LORD.
“ And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.” (Verse 16)
“I will call for a sword against him to all my mountains, says the Lord Yahweh: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
With pestilence and with blood will I enter into judgment with him; and I will rain on him, and on his hordes, and on the many peoples who are with him, an overflowing shower, and great hailstones, fire, and sulfur.
I will magnify myself, and sanctify myself, and I will make myself known in the eyes of many nations; and they shall know that I am YHWH.” (Tanakh: Ezekiel 38:23)
THE SCENARIO TODAY
However, before that FUTURE ENDTIME attack against Israel happens, Iran will attempt to attack Israel by herself. This is PRESENT REAL TIME scenario!
In the final battle with Iran (and Russia) the LORD will provide a MIRACLE win. But before that time ... RIGHT NOW ... the enemy of Israel, Satan, does NOT want Israel controlling the Middle East. Like a woman who is carrying a child in her womb with a prophetic promise, Israel has to maintain and care for the life of the child before it is born as a nation in a day (see Tanakh: Isaiah 66:7-9). And so, to protect herself, Israel MUST maintain her place in destiny. Israel MUST attack Iran before the final battle where Turkey, Iran, the Southern steppes of Russia, and North East Africa (Ethiopia / Cush and Libya / Phut) attack Israel.
THE BEST PART
The Good News is that YOU can know Meshiach personally and have a SUPER important part to play in the days ahead. G-d has a job for you … but more importantly … He loves YOU and offers you forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Just as G-d used Moshe, David, Elijah and Deborah, He wants to use you in a SPECIAL unique role to lead and protect Israel.
If you want to know for sure that you know Him, then pray this prayer: “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, if Yeshua is really my Messiah, then reveal Him to me.” When He does, them obey Him and do what He tells you to do. I was by myself, alone, in a room reading from the Prophet Isaiah 45 years ago today when He revealed himself to me. I have never doubted since that time that I was on my way to Heaven, and the Ruach Ha Chodesh came to live inside me. Baruch ha Shem.
“Come now, and let us reason together," says YHWH: "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Tanakh: Isaiah 1:18)
