Prophecy Unfolding on future Turkish Invasion of Egypt

By Shoebat Foundation on September 29, 2014 in General

Report today from Israel Nationals News

Daniel 11: 43 – 45

43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. 44 But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. 45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.

The two missing links for Turkey to establish the Caliphate is the removal of Asad from Syria which ISIS has been the proxy for Turkey as well as the restoring of power of the Muslim Brotherhood to Egypt. It looks like the Turkish invasion of Egypt is getting closer.

Egypt Set to Boycott Turkey Over Muslim Brotherhood Support

Officials in Egypt are demanding an immediate and total boycott of Turkish goods, as tensions between the two countries worsen.

Officials in Egypt are demanding an immediate and total boycott of Turkish goods, and even a breakoff of diplomatic relations between the two countries, Egyptian media reports said. The call is the latest chapter in the steady and ongoing decline in relations between the two countries, with Turkey accusing Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of everything to “illegitimacy” to “terrorism” to “war crimes.”

The sour relations between the two countries have their roots in the overthrow of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi by the al-Sisi led Egyptian army several years ago. Since then, Turkey has slammed al-Sisi as being a “dictator” who is “persecuting Muslims.” Just last week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would welcome seven top Muslim Brotherhood figures being forced to leave Qatar, indicating his strong ties with the Islamist group – and by extension with its Gaza offshoot Hamas.

“In the event that they request to come to Turkey, then necessary investigations will be carried out. …If there are no obstacles, the mandatory convenience provided to everyone will also be provided to them,” Erdogan said on returning from an official trip to Qatar, reports the Turkish Hurriyet Daily News.

“They can come to Turkey just like any other foreign visitor, if there are no problems,” added Erdogan, in a position contrary to that of most Arab states which have supported Egypt’s crackdown on the group.

Tensions between the two countries were exacerbated during Operation Protective Edge, when, according to Turkey, Egypt took an active role against Hamas, assisting Israel in battling the Gaza terror group, and saying he could not be relied upon to negotiate a truce with Israel. “Is Sisi a party (to a ceasefire)? Sisi is a tyrant himself,” Erdogan was quoted by the AFP news agency as having told reporters. “He is not different from the others,” he said, adding that it was Egypt’s current rulers who were blocking humanitarian aid channels to Gaza.

Egypt, for its part, has had enough, reports in the Egyptian media said Monday, and the government was seriously considering a total economic boycott of Turkey. In a statement, Egypt’s Foreign Ministry slammed a speech by Erdogan at the World Economic Forum last week, in which he repeated many of his accusations against al-Sisi and his government.

Turkey, the statement said, “has been suffering over the past 12 years of Erdogan’s rule of non-democratic practices with all disregard to human rights.” The statement also denounced Erdogan’s restrictions on freedom of expression “as well as the use of excessive force against political activists and peaceful protesters, citing the closure of social networks such as Twitter in a flagrant breach of the freedom of opinion as well as restrictions on press and judiciary, corruption charges as well as unjust sentences against journalists and writers.

“Such recurrent practices and non-democratic acts could never give Erdogan any ethical or political justification for speaking about democracy, but they only reflect a personal ideology for the Turkish leader who has illusions about restoring the glory of the Ottoman Empire away from the national interests of his country and people,” it added.

ISIS, TURKEY’S TOOL FOR RE-ESTABLISHING CALIPHATE

  1. Michael Maloof

WASHINGTON – The release by ISIS of 49 Turkish diplomats under mysterious circumstances raises further concern that Ankara’s cooperation with the jihadist army could be part of a quiet plan to re-establish the Ottoman Empire, according to some Middle East experts, according to Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

 

Ankara already has allowed ISIS jihadist fighters to enter Syria, launder millions of dollars a day and sell oil taken from occupied Iraq.

Turkey said that through “diplomacy” and “negotiation” it was able to obtain the release of diplomats captured when ISIS took over Mosul last June. While Ankara initially denied that it paid any ransom or exchanged any prisoners for the diplomats, ISIS now claims Turkey has released 180 of its fighters, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Ankara had used the hostage issue as a reason to deny a U.S. request either to get directly involved in attacking ISIS positions in Syria or to allow the U.S. to use Incirlik Air Base to launch attacks.

With its main excuse removed, some Middle East experts believe Sunni Turkey’s ulterior motive is to quietly work with the Sunni ISIS to reestablish the Ottoman Empire.

 

Turkey recently encouraged its businesses to invest in ISIS-occupied Iraq.

Energy-hungry Turkey continues to buy oil from ISIS produced from captured Iraqi oil wells for less than half of market value. Much of the ISIS oil goes to Turkish companies, providing ISIS with some $3 million a day to help fund its expansionist activities.

Turkey’s minister of economy, Nihat Zeybekci, is encouraging Turkish businesses to invest in ISIS-occupied portions of Iraq, and ISIS has openly extended invitations to Turkish businesses.

 

“Our exports to Iraq are now down to 35 percent, but Iraq cannot easily substitute other sources,” Neybekci said. “We think there will be a boom in demand soon. We also know that [ISIS] is contacting individual Turkish businessmen and telling them, ‘Come back, we won’t interfere.’ That is not easy, of course. But when the future Iraq is rebuilt, it will be Turkey doing it.”

‘Spirit of the Seljuks’

Middle East expert Nawaf Qadimi has provided further evidence of the subtle cooperation between Turkey and ISIS.

“We have witnessed the severity of the [ISIS] organization in demolishing all the shrines, temples and tombs, even those that are attributed to the prophets and the companions, as being a manifestation of shirk (polytheism), as said by them,” Qadimi said.

“However, when it comes to the shrine of the grandfather of the Turkish Ottomans, Suleiman Pasha, inside Syria and in the areas under [ISIS] control, not only did [ISIS] refrain from destroying it but facilitated the entry of Turkish troops to such shrines and protected them,” he said. “The ISIS forces are to date protecting it and did not destroy it.”

Further underscoring Turkey’s quest to reestablish the Ottoman Empire, which dissolved after some 500 years after the end of World War I, Turkish President Recep Tayyeb Erdogan, a devout Muslim, made a telling comment in July 2012 before an audience of his Justice and Development Party.

Erdogan, who at that time was prime minister, made the statement to justify efforts to overthrow the government of Shiite-Alawite Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and openly allow jihadist fighters to use Turkey to train and to stage attacks in Syria.

“The Justice and Development Party is a party in which the spirit of the Seljuks and the Ottomans is deeply rooted,” Erdogan said.

He regards the Turkish people as the Seljuks, remnants of the Ottoman Empire.

Historically, the Seljuk state was a medieval Turko-Persian empire extending from eastern Anatolia – the old name for Turkey – and from Central Asia to the Persian Gulf into the Khorasan area.

An affiliate of al-Qaida, called Khorasan, is seeking to influence the area.

The Khorasan al-Qaida affiliate is led by Muhsin al-Fadhli, 33, who has been known to the U.S. for some time. It is comprised of other senior al-Qaida operatives who seek to conduct attacks on the U.S. and its allies. Located in Pakistan, they also have fighters in Syria and are closely linked with the al-Qaida affiliate there, Jabhat al-Nusra, which is often at odds with ISIS.

Is ISIS’ caliphate a harbinger of the Antichrist?

Joel Richardson article

Joel Richardson lists theologians who agree ‘little horn’ will arise from same area

 

Seven years ago, Al Gore was warning us that all of the polar ice caps would be completely gone by now. I was warning of a caliphate.

 

For the past 10 years, I’ve diligently sought to awaken the Church to the fact that the Hebrew prophets point to a Middle Eastern Antichrist who will emerge from the region of Turkey, Syria or Iraq. Some have examined the evidence and recognized the solid scriptural basis for this view. Others have questioned, debated, or even maligned this perspective. The truth, however, is that although some naysayers have tried to cast this view as a “lone ranger” perspective, in broad historical terms, I have been far from alone in espousing it. In fact, many great Christian expositors have recognized the biblical evidence for this view. Many even foresaw that a last-days caliphate would be established in the region of Turkey, Syria and Iraq. In light of the astounding re-establishment of an Islamic caliphate for the first time in over 80 years in Iraq and Syria, let us consider a few of the great Christian expositors and teachers who foresaw precisely what we are witnessing today.

 

The first was Hippolytus of Rome (170-235). Hippolytus was an important theologian of the early third century. In speaking of the Antichrist, he said this:

 

“That these things, then, are said of no one else but that tyrant, and shameless one, and adversary of God, we shall show in what follows. But Isaiah also speaks thus: ‘And it shall come to pass, that when the Lord has performed His whole work upon Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, He will punish (visit) the stout mind, the king of Assyria, and the greatness (height) of the glory of his eyes.'” (emphasis added)

 

The second theologian who foresaw the Antichrist as emerging from the region now controlled by ISIS was Victorinus of Pettau (240-304). Victorinus was an early Christian bishop and the author of the most ancient complete commentary on the book of Revelation in our possession. In this ancient commentary, Victorinus identified the Antichrist as “the Assyrian” mentioned in Micah 5:5 who would invade the land of Israel only to be destroyed by Jesus upon His return.

 

The next witness is Lucius Caecilius Firmianus Lactantius (240 – 320). Lactantius was yet another early Church writer from the third century who wrote much on the end times. Amazingly, Lactantius specifically stated that the Antichrist would come from the Roman Province of Syria:

 

“A king shall arise out of Syria, born from an evil spirit, the overthrower and destroyer of the human race, who shall destroy that which is left by the former evil, together with himself. … But that king will not only be most disgraceful in himself, but he will also be a prophet of lies … and power will be given to him to do signs and wonders, by the sight of which he may entice men to adore him. … Then he will attempt to destroy the temple of God and persecute the righteous people.” (emphasis added)

 

Many are surprised to discover that Clarence Larkin (1850-1924), the great dispensational teacher, also foresaw these things. Larkin was an American Baptist pastor, Bible teacher and author whose works continue to sell to this day. In his book “Dispensational Truth,” Larkin wrote, “It is clear that the Antichrist is to come from Syria. … We are to understand therefore by the ‘King of the North’ the King of Syria, which also included Assyria. This fixes the locality from which the Antichrist shall come. …”

 

One of my favorite commentators is G.H. Lang (1874-1958). Lang was a magnificent British expositor whose commentary on the book on Daniel received the highest endorsement from the legendary biblical scholar F.F. Bruce. In Lang’s “The Histories and Prophecies of Daniel,” he said the following:

 

Therefore the Antichrist will be the king of Assyria with Babylon as his capital, which of old was in the dominion of Seleucus, who gained the eastern area of the empire of Alexander. Thus when the Antichrist arises, he will not come at Rome, or any where else in the west. Had this been understood, many vain and misleading speculations would have been avoided, such that of the pope, or the Papacy, or Napoleon, or others being he. And when he comes, his military efforts will be expended mainly upon Egypt and the south, the east, and Palestine.

 

Arthur W. Pink (1886-1952), an English evangelist and biblical scholar also well-known for his work “The Antichrist,” likewise identified the Antichrist as coming from the Middle Eastern region of the former Assyrian Empire:

 

“We have seen that the scriptures which help us to determine the direction from which he will arise, speak of him under the title of the ‘Little Horn.’ Now the first thing this title denotes is that he is a king, king of Assyria. … [After he] acquires the crown of Syria he will speedily enlarge his dominions.”

 

Now, to be clear, the various references to the Antichrist as “the Assyrian” are not ethnic denotations. Instead, it points to the region from which the Antichrist will likely emerge. In the same way that, for example, the prophet Joel speaks of the destruction of Philistia in the Day of the Lord (Joel 3:4), he was not speaking of the judgment of ethnic Philistines when Jesus returns, but of those enemies of His people, who occupy the region of ancient Philistia. So also do the biblical references point to Assyria as the region from which the Antichrist will emerge, but do not indicate that he will ethnically be an Assyrian. Today, the majority of the Assyrian people are Chaldean Christians. Most of those who had continued to live in the region of ancient Assyria have now been forced to flee the onslaught of ISIS.

 

All of these men of God foresaw the Antichrist and his empire as arising from the same region where we have now witnessed the re-establishment of an Islamic caliphate. All of these men looked to the words of the Hebrew prophets and came to similar conclusions. They foresaw in quite a remarkable way what has now unfolded before all of us. As radical Muslims continue to murder, kidnap, rape, behead, crucify and slaughter their way across the Middle East, now it the time for the Church to wake up and diligently study the Scriptures to discern if all of these events indeed provide us with a genuine harbinger of the coming Antichrist and the soon coming return of Jesus.

 

“It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes.” (Luke 12:37).

Turkey’s New Hitler

Turkey plays a key role in the end as either a part of the Ezekiel 38 Gog-Magog alliance or as the Antichrist.

 

Tommy

 

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

Last week, with Mr Erdogan sworn in as president, the workaholic Mr Davutoglu was given yet another promotion. On August 28, he became Turkey’s new prime minister and chairman of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). And while the East understands the current success of the AKP, the West is still in limbo in understanding truly the magnitude of this new political victory.

Rather than being a country relegated to the periphery of Europe and NATO Turkey should seize on historical, geographical and cultural links with its neighbours, Mr Davutoglu believed.

Its “Muslim” and not “backslidden Christian western” neighbors that Turkey wants to rebuild relations with. Its the Arian Heresy that they follow and not the Trinitarian God and defiantly not the One who built Solomon’s Temple on top of Zion’s hill.

In Mr Erdogan, whom he advised on foreign policy issues since 2003, he found an eager disciple and partner. To make the case for re-establishing Turkey’s bygone glory, the quiet thinker and the fiery populist often invoked Turkey’s Islamic heritage and anti-colonialist discourse.

 

“We are the new Ottomans,” Mr Davutoglu said in 2009, the year he became foreign minister.

By the end of the decade, Mr Davutoglu’s vision appeared to be coming true.

They broke with the entrenched leadership and embraced the Islamists, with whom they had shared a common ideological lineage. The AKP itself had been built on the ruins of an overtly Islamist party, of which Mr Erdogan had been a leading member.

“Whatever we lost between 1911 and 1923, whatever lands we withdrew from, we shall once again meet our brothers in those lands between 2011 to 2023,” Mr Davutoglu said in 2012, referring to the World War I era and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. “We shall break the mould shaped for us by Sykes-Picot,” he said a year later.

The Sykes Picot, is the historic event which brought the Ottoman Humpty Dumpty Muslim Empire crushing down into pieces. Sykes Picot is the enemy of not only Turkey’s Ottoman dreams, but ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood and every Islamist on the globe.

Many western analysts believe that Mr Davutoglu’s “pan-Islamist” foreign policy, as Behlul Ozkan, a former student of his, called it in a recent essay, is backfiring.

But they are dead wrong, wishful thinkers, revisionist history book worms who cannot see through their cloudy thick eyeglasses.

At the AKP congress, Mr Davutoglu struck the same note and western analysts should not ignore him as they ignored Hitler.

“No one should clamp Turkey between Europe and Asia,” he said. “May Allah give us the strength to help those who ask, ‘Where is the person who will help me? Is there nobody coming?’”

Davutoglu refuses to have Turkey to being the nut in the jaws of western pliers.

Yet Western media, both liberal and conservative, has left no stone unturned to criticize Erdogan saying that “only conservatives and rural Turks had voted for Erdoğan and secularists, liberals and nationalists had voted for his opponent Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu”. They were all wrong. Fact is that Erdoğan’s voters draws respect from all segments of society and not just from conservatives or rural areas.

They repeat similar old false mantra that terrorism is caused by poverty and religion is born out of lack of education.

Last week conservative writer, Daniel Pipes wrote: “Turkey is slipping away from the NATO alliance of democracies and toward the shoddy Sino-Russian grouplet known as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. As Kemal Kilicdaroglu, leader of the opposition, sadly notes, “Turkey has grown lonely in the world.”

Western writers and experts think that by “world” and “lonely” they restrict such a term to the West, that Turkey is lonely and is dying to speak English.

Turkey is hardly “lonely”.

Today foreign students from Asia and Central Asian states now come into Turkey for higher education.
Heads of state from a dozen nations in Eastern Europe, Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East attended the ceremony while leaders of top Western states were conspicuous by their absence should tell us all something and Erdogan ruling Turkey longer than its modern founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk should teach us that its not western love the Turks seek, but an imperial dream.

And where were all these “experts” when we wrote of the revival of the Ottomans two decades ago, and how well did they do in their intellectual guesswork predicting that Kemalism was unshaken?

Turkey is a civilization bridge that connects three continents (Europe, Asia and Africa), it’s independent and plays a central power role, similar to the role of Germany in Europe. Using Samuel Huntington’s theory, Davutoğlu builds his theoretical framework of Turkey as an “original civilization”, the result of the interaction between Turkey’s unique role in Islam which can magnatize different cultures mixed in the Anatolian space from Turkey to North Africa, Egypt, the Fertile Crescent to Mesopotamia, Iran, Central Asia and all the way to Indonesia.

What western analysts all ignore is that religion is power and that Islam will never adapt to western ideas, except to gaining enough western military capabilities to invade and expand. Turkey is a major military power that can threaten Europe in the future and Germany spying at Turkey has its reasons.

And yes, history does repeat itself. Just as in the past, by 1500, the Sunni branch of Islam from Turkey, administered by the Ottomans, ruled lands from Syria and Iraq, across the Maghreb to the Atlantic. And on the European mainland, it ruled all of Greece and the Balkans. By 1529, the Ottomans began their first siege of the Hapsburg imperial Christian capital of Vienna and were not successful in taking the city. They lost that battle because the Sultan, Selim “the Grim,” was temporarily distracted from his conquest of Europe, feeling obliged to wage wars against his Islamic rivals both in Egypt and in Persia. Selim’s armies fought Persia to a stalemate. They were victorious against the Mamluks of Egypt, incorporating within the Turkish Ottoman Empire, Egypt, and the holy citadels of Islam, Medina, and Mecca. Most important for the ultimate survival of Europe, Persia remained an enemy of the Ottomans.

The new power house to be reckoned with is the dream to reunite these Islamic states Turkey once conquered.

 

What western analysts fail to do is to comprehend that religion is more powerful and is more motivating than freedom and economy.

The stage is set for Turkey to recreate its long awaited Ottoman dream. And while it will progress economically, it will use religion as the adhesive to attempt to unite its past glory. But this will be unlike its past glory and will end up as a divided 10 region/states.

And if Sykes Picot is Turkey’s current enemy as Davutoglu pointed, its also the enemy #1 of ISIS and what ISIS drew for their flag comes from Turkey’s Topkapi Museum and is a Turkish insignia and what ISIS drew as the new map is also Turkey’s which includes 10 Muslim regional powers:

1-Anatolia (Turkey)
2-Kurdistan
3-Gogaz, (C.I.S, which includes Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan)
4-Khorasan (Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and possibly Indonesia)
5-Iraq
6-Sham (Syria, Lebanon)
7-Qinana (Egypt, Sudan and Somalia)
8-Maghreb (which includes Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Mauritania)
9-Yemen
10-Hijaz (which includes the Gulf States)

It is only a matter of time that western analysts will see that religion, both Christian and Muslim is what draws the destiny of mankind; Christianity on the holy and Islam on the side of evil. Soon, they will realize that Islam’s ten state solution is not far fetched, but is also etched in their dusty Bibles that sits on their grandparents bookshelf. Pretty soon, they will learn of Daniel and of John and laugh no more. They will soon learn what John meant by “fiery red,” “hyacinth blue” and “sulfur yellow” and is that very same red dragon with the crescent moon and the woman stomping on it under her glorious feet, colors that can be clearly seen here:

Erdogan Rally from Joel Richardson on Vimeo.

(Courtesy of Joel’s Trumpet)

Currently, ISIS, the bastard child created by Turkey has already divided the Muslim world in its map to include 13 Muslim states. But there map includes the Balkans, Spain and Ethiopia to make them 13.

While these three Christian lands are to be included back into the Ottoman Empire after an invasion, taking them off the chart leaves us with a ten Muslim state confederacy which such a plan was already announced in Istanbul.

Now this plan will become the primary focus of Turkey, not ISIS, which is simply setting the stage by removing the secular governments in the region to set up these ten states during the next decade and is why we are not rushing into proclaiming the end. There is still more to come.

What western analysts need to do is to read what circulates the Middle Eastern media:

“Sprawling three continents, from Asia which includes the states of Iraq, Syria and the Hijaz, Yemen, Khorasan and Anatolia and Kurdistan, then Andalusia in Europe, the Balkans and Eastern Europe. And then to the African continent, where the states of Abyssinia, and the land of Egypt. So this is The Caliphate State, thirteen states encompassing half of the world’s hemisphere.”

What is arising in Turkey is indeed, a failure in following western policy and western wishes, but a success in developing a new Hitler. The West forgot to learn from the first lesson in warfare; always believe what your enemy says.

Antichrist Nation of Turkey and it’s Initial Plans to Invade Libya, Sudan and Egypt

By Shoebat Foundation on August 24, 2014 in Featured, General

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

The entanglement between the “World Federation of Muslim Scholars” and the “International

Organization of the Muslim Brotherhood” in Istanbul Turkey is a master plan designed by

the devil. It brings together an assortment of Muslim demons to spark a Turkish campaign

to create some serious trouble in Libya, Sudan and Egypt and few are paying attention how

significant this is prophetically

Before the red dragon goes after Israel and the Church, and before it’s crescent is stomped on by

the woman (Revelation 12), there is the spark on how such a dragon will muster his minions. The

World Federation of Muslim Scholars is a major entity that encompasses the most influential political

Muslim theologians and leaders, mostly members of the International Muslim Brotherhood, which

encompasses the movers and shakers for a political plan masterminded by Erdogan for a future

entry of Libya, Sudan and Egypt in the future.

Here is how it all works. Erdogan seeks to disrupt that Egyptian Initiative for a ceasefire between

Hamas and Israel by blackmailing Hamas threatening it to stop Turkish and Qatari aid in order to

play the peace-maker after it creates unrest in the region. Turkey discussed the need for greater

coordination with the Takfiri movements to coordinate incitements to carry out an attack on the

Egyptian prisons, for the release of the Brotherhood’s group’s leaders, and to try to launch a new

satellite channel “Egypt Now” to be a media outlet’s new group. Turkey wants to create armed

Jihadis in Libya including Sudan to create unrest in Libya as well as Egypt.

To confirm that, this is the plan, one needs to ask; why would the Istanbul Conference include Ali

Mohamed Al-Salabi, leader of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood who has the most prominent role

and close ties with the most political Islamic armed fighting groups in Libya. And then we have

Essam al-Bashir leader of the Muslim Brotherhood of Sudan, and Ibrahim El Zayat the leader of the

Muslim Brotherhood in Germany and the husband of the daughter of the late Islamist Turkish leader,

Necmettin Erbakan, in addition to Egyptian preacher Amr Khaled.

Erdogan is using an opportunity using the Muslim Brotherhood to present himself an image as the

defender of the oppressed, and the successful model for political Islam by restoring the Brotherhood.

Most observers now agree that Erdogan is trying to restore the dream of the Ottoman Empire,

using the greatest Muslim chieftains for such promotion, which has been achieved partly by using

Qaradawi including Qatar and Sudan and the Nahda Party in Tunisia, as well as the militants in

Libya.

There are Muslim and Christian prophecies to be fulfilled and neither arena is understanding what is

what or how things will unfold. Turkey wants to gain momentum to enter Egypt, Libya and Sudan as

predicted by Daniel the prophet.

But when I search for the first interpretation of Daniel and I found what is in the parenthesis is mired

error mixing the typical prophecy mania with some anti-U.S. paranoia:

“At the time of the end the king of the South(Iraq) will engage him in battle, and the king of the North

(US led forces) will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He

(US) will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood.”

This is the type of naïve haphazard guesswork and irresponsible hermeneutics I find prevailing the

Prophecy world. No, it goes like this, read carefully:

“At the time of the end the king of the South (Egypt) will engage him in battle, and the king of the

North (Turkey) will storm out against him (king of the South, Egypt) with chariots and cavalry and a

great fleet of ships. He (Gog of Turkey) will invade many countries and sweep through them like a

flood … He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt (king of the south) will not escape. He

(Gog of Turkey) will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with

the Libyans and Cushites (Sudan) in submission. But reports from the east and the north (Russia)

will alarm him (Gog), and he will set out in a great rage to destroy and annihilate many. He will pitch

his royal tents between the seas at the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end (as result

of the reports of war from the North, Russia), and no one will help him.”

It takes work, not guesswork, to unravel the prophecies in conjunction to what goes on on the

ground in the Middle East. The idea of establishing the union between the top global Muslim elders

and scholars and Turkey came during a meeting of Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah Al-Khatib Mufti

of the Muslim Brotherhood and Sheikh Sayed Askar with Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Muhammad

Salim Al-Awa who all agreed to the establishment of this structure, to all be followers, to become

the international voice for Islam and is why Qaradawi is courting Erdogan and to even bring in the

Brotherhood leader Rachid Ghannouchi the head of Tunisia to plan addressing the Muslim global

public opinion during the next phase.

What phase? The “by peace he will deceive many” phase. What westerners do not comprehend

is that Islam has a stealth definition Al-Islam Deen Al-Wassat (Islam is the religion of the middle).

The world as well as Muslims globally is currently seeking to respond to ISIS and this “middle” is

the perfect model to cover the devil and is what is being sold to everyone globally. To completely

understand Islam, one must be the devil. In Istanbul, they addressed how to fight extremism. This

will win the hearts of the simpletons in order to use them politically.

In the opening speech Mohammed Gormaz, Chairman of the Shura Council of Scholars of Eurasia

and head of the Department of Religious Affairs of Turkey, criticized what he called the scholars of

power saying:

“They sold themselves and their conscience to power and dominion, and used their knowledge and

their turbans as tools for unjust and despotic bloody rulers who shed the blood of the innocent. They

are more evil than the unjust ruler, because they are selling their religion for this world.”

What Gormaz is talking about is his letter to the Sheikh of Al-Azhar University in Egypt asking him to

intervene to stop the death sentences against 500 brothers convicted in murder and the sabotage of

Egypt.

The union of Muslim scholars are at odds with Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the Gulf, which means that

Qaradawi will permanently live in Turkey and give his old mantle to Ghannouchi, the head of the

Tunisian Al-Nahda. Tunisia and Libya are biblical Phut mentioned as a major prophetic player in the

ends of times.

Very few focus on these, instead, they try to find Obama, the Pope, or the destruction of America in

every other verse in the Bible. From these shy away, for such are the teachers of nonsense.

ISIS: Turkey’s Bastard Child

Reality coming soon to a place near us all! Keep looking up!

 

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

Simple Logic Shows Turkey is in Bed with ISIS. When ISIS started a demolition of all shrines and tombs, even those that are attributed to prophets like Jonah and even Muslim religious icons, ISIS blew up these holy places accusing them as magnets to practices considered as sacrilege. Yet, only Turkish shrines were off limits. When it comes to the shrine of the grand father of the Turkish Ottomans “Suleiman Pasha” inside Syria, and in the areas under ISIS, not only did ISIS refrain from destroying these, but facilitated the entry of Turkish troops to such shrines in order to protected them.

When the most extremist Muslim group in the world overlooks what is “sacrilege,” rest assured there is a deal.

ISIS is a Turkish baby which carries the circle signet on its flag “Muhammad is Messenger of Allah” which is found in a replica of Muhammad’s signet ring at the museum of Topkapi in Istanbul Turkey.

 

Today the ISIS is estimated at 50,000 fighters 5,000 of which are Turks including 3 million Turkish sympathizers and the Turkish government has not shown any concern. Than we look at the armament sources of arming the ISIS and al-Nusra may come from the Jordanian border, but the bulk amount of weapons, according to reports and investigations and according to Resolution 2170 came from Turkey. This is confirmed when the 27-year-old ISIS commander, identified as Abu Yusef, who traveled to the town of Reyhanlı in the southern province of Hatay explained that they received most of their supplies from across the Turkish border until a recent crackdown against them.

“We used to have some fighters — even high-level members of the Islamic State — getting treated in Turkish hospitals. And also, most of the fighters who joined us in the beginning of the war came via Turkey, and so did our equipment and supplies,” Yusef told the Washington Post.

If ISIS is not a Turkish baby, why is Turkey than refraining from entering the U.S.-French alliance to rid the world from the possessed little demon? Turkey offered nothing when the U.S. offered to lob a silver bullet into ISIS’s heart and even prevented the U.S. from using its land for launching such attacks.

Ankara needs its little devil.

It doesn’t mind the partition of Iraq and the emergence of the state “Caliphate,” and Mosul as its capital. The ISIS serves as a dismantling machine of all secular regimes to prepare the runway for the soon emerging grand Caliph Erdogan. Turkey is in the process of removing the restrainer which kept the Antichrist Caliphate regime bound for several decades, for its these powers that has always kept the rise of the Caliphate at bay. Erdogan also sparked the 2007 Ergenekon proceeding that has ended with the former head of the Turkish military, General Ilker Basbug, and many others who were ordered to serve life in prison, and by this Erdogan removed his restrainer, yet more restrainers will be removed through much blood shed and lawlessness.

 

For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.

.

The situation in Iraq also benefits Turkey with the flow of oil in the fight against Saudi Arabia. Turkey has an old score to settle when Arabia helped dismantle the Ottoman Caliphate when it collaborated with the British when Sharif Hussein bin Ali fired the first symbolic shot from his palace towards the Jeroul Turkish military base in Mecca; thus launching the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Government.

Saudi influence in Iraq dates back to World War I, which brought the British Empire to Iraq, and with them, the Saudi dynasty. During the war the British government followed a policy of supporting the Arab revolt by the sharif of Mecca against the Ottoman Empire. Faisal, the first king of Iraq, was the third son of Hussein bin Ali, the sharif of Mecca.

Its an old score that will be settled sooner or later. There is also an Iranian old vendetta from 1979 for all the Wahhabi enmity against Shiites desiring to spread its revolution accusing Saudi Arabia of being an agent of the United States and questioning Saudi authority over Mecca.

It is always crucial to understand that when it comes to the spread of Caliphate ideology, we should not isolate Turkey giving birth to ISIS, but keep in mind that Arabia is the mother of all bastards and its day of reckoning is coming when her own bastard recruits into Islam, the religion she gave birth to will ravish and burn her.

“The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.” (Revelation 17:16)

The Ottomans will never succeed in putting the Ottoman Humpty-Dumpty back together and its influence will only encompass 10 regions of its original sphere. Turkey will soon allow Kurdistan to finally take shape since even the independence of Kurdistan is beneficial for Turkey since its at odds with Baghdad, Turkey would consider Kurdistan the opportunity it has to be the only passage of oil and gas through them since there will be no respect for the sovereignty of Iraq and the Iraqi constitution.

Perhaps one of the hidden clues that the ISIS baby has Turkish DNA is when the Malaysian police foiled plans this week for a wave of bombings drawn up by pro ISIS terrorists.  “The 19 suspected were formulating plans to bomb pubs, discos and a Malaysian brewery”  said Ayob Khan Mydin, deputy chief of the Malaysian police counter-terrorism division. Ayob Khan told AFP that the group, all Malaysians, had visions of establishing a hard-line Southeast Asian Islamic caliphate spanning Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore, and some of those arrested were apprehended at airports on the way to none other than Turkey to seek training and support from ISIS.

Than we have a leaked video from an ISIS training center in Turkey:

“Destroy and blow up our enemies, victory is near .. young men, enroll, land and win .. young men its our religion attack with your weapons and win .. spread throughout the earth and raze the strongholds of the unbelievers” says the speaker.

“Those who believe and immigrate and participate in Jihad with their monies and selves have the highest rank with Allah and are the winners” adds the speaker. This is from the heart of Turkey which produced its bastard child ISIS.

Obama Choosing Turkey, Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas over Israel; and NATO makes it easier

ByBen Barrack on August 20, 2014 in Featured, General

For the second day in a row, State Department spokesman Marie Harf was pressed on Turkey’s support for Hamas launching a coup in the West Bank so that it can better fight Israel. There is also grave concern over Turkey’s alleged harboring of a Hamas leader implicated in the kidnapping and subsequent murdering of three Israeli teenagers earlier this summer. For the second day in a row, Harf didn’t seem to have any answers.

It should be noted that Turkey was behind the 2010 Gaza flotilla as well.

Via Washington Free Beacon:

A heated back-and-forth between reporters and Harf broke out at the State Department’s daily briefing on Monday and Tuesday when questions emerged about why the administration is going through with the transfer of U.S. missiles to Turkey while simultaneously holding up similar weapons shipments to Israel.

Harf again on Tuesday ducked questions by reporters asking if the U.S. government had conveyed concerns to Turkey over the plot.

“Do you have any concerns at all about the apparent role of Turkey in this?” AP reporter Matt Lee asked Harf.

“I don’t have any more details on this, Matt. I’m happy to check with our team,” Harf responded.

“Okay. Because I did ask this yesterday. You weren’t aware of the incident, but … now, the Israelis say that this is all being planned and funded from Turkish territory,” Lee followd up.

“Well, as I said, I think it involves some Hamas militants and cash, but let me check on that piece of it. I certainly have nothing to confirm that,” Harf told Lee.

“I’m most curious to know if you guys are planning to raise any concerns with the—I don’t know, maybe you don’t have any concerns … if you’ll raise them with the Turks,” Lee responded.

Harf responded that she would “check on that.”

Again, Harf defaulted back to the NATO alliance between the U.S. and Turkey:

“Turkey is also a NATO ally,” she told reporters. “So for all of us who are—talk a lot about the importance of the NATO alliance, particularly when it comes to Russia and Ukraine and what’s happening there, we think it’s important to provide our NATO allies with resources. We think that’s an important use of our resources. The two [cases] aren’t comparable, but those are the facts behind them, I would say.”

Regardless of where one stands on the issue of Russia and Ukraine, the fact is that a big factor there – especially in Crimea – has been Russia’s concerns over the Muslim tartars, which are allies of the Turks. Their heaviest population can be found in Crimea. Another dispute between Russia and Turkey is in Syria. Russia has been on the side of Bashar al-Assad and Turkey – like the U.S. – has been on the side of the opposition there.

That is, until now.

Now, Turkey is on the side of ISIS and the U.S. – whether it wants to acknowledge it or not – is on the side of Assad by default (the U.S. is fighting ISIS in Iraq).

Then, of course, we have the situation with Israel. As is the case in Egypt right now, Russia is aligning with anti-Muslim Brotherhood forces by siding with Gen. el-Sisi. The Obama administration has been siding with the Brotherhood there (siding with Turkey).

By aligning with Turkey, the U.S. is siding against Israel, increasingly so.

Add to that the issue of Hamas mentioned above.

Based on all the conflicts in the world today, Russia is closer to being a natural ally with Israel than is the U.S.

That’s sad and regardless of what complexities people would like to introduce into the argument telling us why the U.S. can’t exit NATO, there’s one simple reason it should.

The U.S. is increasingly against Israel the longer it’s with Turkey.

That’s a flat-out disastrous alliance, regardless of any high-minded political intricacies the ‘little people’ don’t understand.

The Demonic Turkish Iranian Alliance Just Begun in the Land of Antichrist

Clearly this alliance will happen! Mecca will be destroyed! At a minimum this is part of Gog Magog!

 

TS

 

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

Reports from the Middle East covered what is probably considered one of the most important events for Turkey’s advancement into the Muslim world during the three days (July 17 to 19) which was held in the Turkish city of Istanbul.

The impressive initiative was carried out by the religious affairs in Turkey, under the auspices and support of prominent Turkish government with a list of invitees for more than 100 of the top Muslim religious figures from around the world, representing about 35 Islamic states mainly carried out by Turkish participation in which Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Abdullah Gul and Foreign Minister Ahmed Davutoglu were the main speakers.

An important interview regarding these recent events in which even Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, the most prominent Muslim scholar in the Sunni Muslim world made comments announcing Erdogan and Turkey as the center for the new rising Islamic Caliphate which can be read [here].

The star of the conference was Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. What is interesting is that the attending supporters who were commenting described Erdogan’s speech as “deserving to be called the speech of a Caliph”.

Erdogan is already being titled “Caliph” and it is no secret that this call came in light of the consequences taking place in Iraq, Syria and other countries after the Iraqi Caliphate has stretched over a large part of Iraqi territory.

This is the first conference called for by the Turkish officials at this level in terms of the nature of the invitees of Islamist figures from both Sunnis and Shiites. In fact and surprisingly, the Iranian delegation was the largest delegation to attend the conference, headed by Supreme Leader Advisor Sheikh Mohammad Ali Taskhiri. Another important note is the absence of Egyptian officials or Wahhabist figures.

Reporter Ali Al-Amin from Middle East Transparency described the event as “a craft design by the Turkish government. Careful care was made to prevent the breakup of the conference since the attendants were both Sunni and Shiite.”

The Iranian delegates were careful and remained silent on the Sunni-Shiite divide focusing solely on the support of Gaza and Palestine which was the main focus of the event billed as an attempt to reduce sectarian tensions and to focus on liberating Jerusalem.

Al-Amin chatted with several reporters and participants who said that there was something developing between Iran and Turkey.

The conference formed the initiative committee of seven figures where two were Shiites from Iraq and Iran, and the rest Sunnis in which the Commission adopted Istanbul as it base.

This event marks a new Turkish entry into the region. It may be ambitious and it is certain that Turkey, according to Turkish officials, according to the words of Erdogan himself, decided not to enter any party in the sectarian conflict but intends to use his Sufi brand of Islam to unite the entire Muslim world.

It is crucial to note that the Sufi brand of Islam is mystical, shamanistic and comprises one-fifth of the Muslim world and can transform educated men into zombies to generate even a fiercer warrior than what we see in the ISIS.

Far from Wahhabism, Sufism is the most dangerous, not only that because it teaches tremendous violence since it was the Sufis who are the muscle and sinew of the faith advancing it to become the world’s second-largest religion.

Sufis are not simply a sect of Islam, but rather heirs of an ancient mystical tradition within both the Sunni and Shia branches of the faith combining their inward quest with war and expansion worldwide while uniting the two sects of Shiite and Sunni brands of Islam. The event definitely advances an a Turkish-Iranian alliance.

Shoebat.com has previously showed what Sufism does with its Shamanistic practices:

The French did an excellent research in showing what seems to be pure demonic possession in which the demonic influence produces strange bark-like noises (start 2:00):

But this is not only done to infuse strange spirits into the souls of men, the Sufis are the most demonically possessed fighters. Sufism is what makes Chechen fighters fierce. Christians need to understand what process is used in mystic Islam to comprehend the biblical warnings of the type of warriors whom the system of Antichrist produces in which the demonic bark-like sounds are clearly heard even in group sessions:

Sufism is also the ecumenical force in which it is the best uniting factor between Shiite and Sunni Muslims. Sunni Sufis adore Shiite icons and like Shiites are mystical and charismatic and even provides a link between Islam and shamanism.

In contemporary Muslim culture Sufism introduced the old practice of shamanism as it was combined with elements of Sufism in order to adapt to wider Islamic society. Shamanistic Sufi Islam thus expands deeply into Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and the Balkans and shows how the Muslim shaman, like his Siberian counterpart, cultivates personal relations with spirits to supposedly help individuals through what they believe as healing and divination.

This ‘Islamized shamanism’, covering the geographic areas of modern-day Turkey, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kirghizstan, northern Afghanistan, the Turkoman province of Iran and even the Uygur district of Xinjian province of China will play a major role in the end times and we predict that the Antichrist is likely to be Sufi.

Turkey is especially plagued with Sufi Islam and Edorgan was raised as a Sufi Muslim and Shamanism pervaded Turkish Sufism which naive western tourists are fascinated with when they watch Dervishes who spin and rotate as they get into a trance. Shia Islam in Iran follows metaphysical Sufism, and pre-Islamic shamanism. The figure of the shaman has always been a prominent motif within the Islamic world, particularly in relation to the mystical domain of Sufism.

This explains what Isaiah, Daniel, Ezekiel and John warned about how Lucifer dominates the region, stemming from Pergamum (Turkey).

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

Many students of Bible Prophecy insist that the Antichrist stems from a revived Roman Empire centered in Rome, a model that positions the end-times beast kingdom in Europe. But current news out of the Middle East provides some damning evidence that debunks such theory.  

The “Europe” model for an Antichrist kingdom became prominent during the rise of the European Union four decades ago during the seventies when self-proclaimed prophecy ‘experts’ began to announce that the end is near and countless books were written to the effect making such theory dominate the American church.

The theory stemmed from a common interpretation of Daniel 2 claiming that the Roman Empire model included two legs, a leg they claim stems from Rome and another eastern leg centered in Constantinople, which today is in Turkey. Therefore, the European model, in this view insists that Turkey joins the European Union since it must include both the eastern and western parts of the Roman Empire.

But the current news today shows that after his victory speech, President Erdoğan of Turkey mentioned a “New Turkey” and his cabinet made it clear that his government is moving away from joining the European Union altogether. With this new foreign policy, Turkey’s EU aspirations may be shelved, according to Erdoğan’s chief adviser, Yiğit Bulut.

Bulut, in a recent analysis, outlined a controversial vision for a new Turkey in the wake of Erdoğan’s election victory, a vision that suggests cutting ties with the EU.

While some are still adamant about the European model, not all Bible scholars agree. For example, the prominant Rev. Dr. Matthew Henry over three centuries ago dealt with this controversey:

Who is this enemy — whose rise, reign and ruin are here foretold? Interpreters are not agreed. Some will have the Fourth Kingdom to be that of the Seleucidae and the ‘little horn’ to be Antiochus…. Others will have the Fourth Kingdom to be that of the Romans, and the ‘little horn’ to be Julius Caesar and the succeeding emperors, as Calvin says. The Antichrist, the Papal Kingdom, says Mr. Joseph Mede…. Others make the ‘little horn’ to be the Turkish Empire; so Luther, Vatablus, and others. Now I cannot prove either side to be in the wrong. And therefore, since prophecies sometimes have many fulfilling and we ought to give Scripture its full latitude (in this as in many other controversies) — I am willing to allow that they are both in the right.” (Henry: A Commentary on the Holy Bible, with Practical Remarks andObservations, London: Marshall Bros. Ltd., n.d., IV:1270f)

So besides the Papal Kingdom (Europe) as a theory, there was also the “Seleucidae” (Seleucid) which is the “Turkish Empire” model which was the most prominent view historically. These are not isolated interpretations, even amongst the most major Protestant theologians.

Today this Seleucid region is centered on the areas of the Ottoman Empire, which overtook the Roman Empire at its fall in Constantinople during the Muslim invasion by the Ottomans under Muhammad II in 1453.

Furthermore, no one historically could point to any burdens or judgments in end-times context in any literal references in the Bible that include any European entity and the Seleucid-Grecian model has all its historic regions literally included in Scripture by their ancient names. The Seleucid-Grecian model today would include a landmass stemming from the Levant and not the Adriatic (1) and includes a swath of lands from the Middle East, Turkey, Central Asia, which includes the former Soviet republics (Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan) to the Persian Gulf and Eastern Anatolia, Iran, Afghanistan and even parts of India in Pakistan. This is the 10-40 Window and are currently all Islamic.

 

And the current news that just came out of the Middle East by prominent Turkish government officials and analysts (2) is beginning to confirm. As soon as the President-elect Recep Tayyip Erdoğan won, the idea of a “New Turkey” was explained by his government to represent a new understanding in Turkish foreign policy, through which the country is expected to increasingly move away from the European Union ideal while focusing on its relations with China, Russia and the former Soviet republics (Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan).

Furthermore, in an article published by the pro-government Sabah daily, Erdoğan’s chief adviser Mr. Bulut said that Turkey needs to stop aspiring to be a member of the EU and instead seek to expand its influence in the Middle East and elsewhere.

“The current state of the relationship with the EU is next to non-existent. The EU has its own problems and politicians from EU countries are trying to gain votes by campaigning against Turkish membership and Erdoğan is reluctance about EU membership,” said Fatih University Associate Professor Savaş Genç.

“Moving further along the EU path means further reforms, extending freedoms, improving democracy and ultimately giving up some of your sovereignty to Brussels, which Erdoğan is not willing to do. He dreams of a state that is structured more around intelligence-gathering, more based on the National Intelligence Organization [MİT],” he added.

And according to Mehmet Seyfettin Erol, head of Ankara’s International Strategic and Security Research Center (USGAM), the focus of Turkish foreign policy will be to increase its influence across the former Great Seljuk Empire, which controlled a region stretching from Central Asia to the Persian Gulf and Eastern Anatolia.



“Turkey will most likely turn its face to the area where the former Soviet republics are and the area towards the Great Wall of China. This is the geography of the Great Seljuk Empire, which includes Iran, Afghanistan and India,” Erol said.

The evidence to what we have been warning about for the last two decades is finally beginning to take shape. Erol pointed out that the appearance of Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev from Central Asia during President-elect Erdoğan’s victory speech on Aug. 10 is a sign of Turkey’s focus on the region.

In an unexpected move, Atambayev took the stage with Erdoğan as the Turkish president-elect was delivering his victory speech on Sunday. Speaking in Turkish, after congratulating Erdoğan, Atambayev said Turkey will be stronger under Erdoğan’s presidency.

 Another sign of the focus on this area will be Turkey’s decision on the Chinese missile issue.

 NATO member Turkey’s highly controversial talks with China over the acquisition of long-range missiles are expected to continue until the end of August.

We argued for two decades while our opponents agreed that for the European model to match such a Roman revival, Turkey MUST partner with Europe, yet Turkey as it seems is not joining Europe anytime soon but uniting to its former nations that were under Ottoman rule. This would be a divided Empire that will not unite, but cooperate as in the former days under a Caliphate that will stem from Turkey, not Rome.

Perhaps its time to use some wiser approach, that at times, the best logical approach to Prophecy should be to keep it kiss. One should ask themselves; while many pick on the Vatican, how often do you find people who want to mess with Islam? Doesn’t it seem to be an easier position to point the finger at Rome and Europe? Is the Pope going to cut off your head? Who has persecuted Christians in the past, Europe or Turkey? Standing against the Antichrist spirit is always risky. When you expose it, you risk death. Ask yourself, what would be the most uncomfortable thing to expose today, the European Union and the Catholic Church as the Antichrist and the Great Whore, or Islam centered in Mecca? One can expose the Catholic Church and the European Union until they are blue in the face, and no one will berate them. Islam on the other hand, is a very different matter.

The argument is plausible, and possibly just; but its chief force depends upon forgetting that in the prophet’s view the Levant and not the Adriatic, Jerusalem and not Rome, is the center of the world.”

Watch Muslims Giving Allegiance to ANTICHRIST

By Walid Shoebat (Shoebat Exclusive)

While the naïve who read much western style sci-fi prophecy is awaiting some computer chips and barcodes to be embedded into right hands and foreheads, in the Muslim world they are already marking their foreheads and hands, even giving allegiance to some antichrist and they are also changing set times and set laws invoking Sharia on everyone. They sing “O one who badges his head, in the Levant there is Sharia.”

Here, enter a dark mosque in Mosul Iraq and watch how Muslims give the Bay’ah (allegiance) in the presence of the Caliph Al-Baghdadi:

In darkness they chant, “We give bay’ah (allegiance) to the Prince of the Faithful, the Caliph, the Husseini the Qurashite, to hear and obey …”

The Caliph is called Amir Al-Muminin (The Prince of the Faithful). The Bible predicted an antichrist with the title “The prince who is to come” (Daniel 9) and John predicted that he will be given “allegiance”. What we see is the beginning and the setting up for the final Antichrist who will rule over his multitude while he orders the beheading of all who refuses to give allegiance to him. This is exactly what Al-Baghdadi is doing.

In the ritual, the Muslim lifts up his right hand and his sabbabah (index finger) signifying that God is an absolute one, not a Trinity as Christians believe. It is necessary for every Muslim to lift his/her index finger signifying that God is not the Triune God but the one god who rules over “multitudes of people and demons” (Qur’an 69:43). In essence he denounces the Trinity since to them God is Ahhad, an absolute one:

They repeat aloud: “We give bay’ah (allegiance) to the Caliph of the Muslims, the Prince of the Faithful, to hear and submit …”.

They submit, give allegiance and accept to be owned by their lord, the lord of the two worlds, this world and the underworld, and the lord of men and demons.

We beg our Christian brethren to heed our warning, the mass killing of Middle East Christians is on the horizon. It is crucial to understand this Antichrist theology since the Antichrist “denies Father and Son” (1 John 2:22).

CHRISTIANS ARE BEING GIVEN A CHOICE TO SUBMIT TO THESE SAVAGE BARBARIANS EVERYDAY, BUT THERE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN DO. WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING TO HELP DELIVER CHRISTIANS FROM THIS HELL BOUND AND EVIL ANTICHRIST CULT. PLEASE DONATE NOW, TO HELP SAVE CHRISTIAN LIVES.

This is not only our personal warning. In every verse in the Bible where “Antichrist” is mentioned, it is about the denial of Jesus’s deity and the Trinity which fits Islam perfectly. Be steadfast, persevere, pray, watch and be ready to cloth Christ and feed Him (Matthew 25).

Years ago before the current Caliphate in Iraq we wrote all about what is happening today regarding such allegiance calling it by name Bay’ah li-Amir Al-Mumineen (allegiance to The Prince). That is what John (allegiance) and Daniel (prince to come) predicted and is the exact words they use in these videos above:

“Many modern Islamist books and articles that speak about the restoration of the Caliphate present the giving of the bay’ah (allegiance) as a very common theme. Like anxious children waiting and planning for Christmas morning, many very eager Islamists look forward to the day when all citizens of Dar-al-Islam (the regions and lands under the authority of the Caliphate) will be required to make the bay’ah pledge to the Caliph. According to Islamic tradition, those who do not make this pledge will die the death of an idolater: “One who withdraws his hand from obedience to the Ruler (Emir/Prince) will find no argument in his defense when he stands before Allah on the Day of Judgment, and one who dies without having bound himself by an oath of allegiance (bay’ah) to an Emir will die the death of one belonging to the days of Jahillyya (Pre-Islamic ignorance and idolatry).” (1)

“Similar to the Antichrist, anyone who refuses to give allegiance will be killed. The evidence of the mistreatment of Christians and Jews in the Islamic system is immense, but it will of course only increase in the days to come. This is what the Bible warned of when it stated that whoever did not accept the Mark of the Beast will be killed.” (God’s War on Terror, P.p 377-378)

While it is becoming hip for Islamists to put the Islamic patch on their foreheads, in the near future it will become a mandate for all. We foresee this coming in the near horizon, so be ready O ye faithful, put on the armor of God, make the roads straight for the Son of God is coming with wrath issuing forth from His feet, and all the saints of heaven will be with Him set in battle array. The Muslim will writhe in pain and fear of the glorious angelic hosts of heaven and the indestructible glorified bodies of the saints will finally come for the final judgment of Antichrist and his multitudes of Muslims. 

SO HOW IMPORTANT IS SUCH A MARK IN ISLAM?

Years ago, in our book God’s War on Terror we also wrote:

“Amazingly, and in keeping perfectly with what the Bible predicted so long ago regarding the beast and his mark, the badge is in fact an Islamic commandment from the prophet himself telling every Muslim that in the end: “‘You [Muslim] have but one good deed and there will be no condemnation for you today’. A badge is brought forth. Scrolled across it are the words: ‘No God but Allah, and Muhammad is His messenger.’ Then he is asked to bring forth his deeds. He asks, O Lord, what is this badge that is with these registers?’ He is told, ‘You will receive no condemnation.’ The deeds are put on one hand, and the badge in the other. Then the registers will float and the badge will outweigh the registers” (2).”

The badge and the mark on the forehead is so crucial that it is the salvation of Muslims in the ends of times while it is the curse for Christians who will refuse to obey and will get beheaded.

In God’s War on Terror, we stated that:

even the part of the Bible that predicted the beast will mark the foreheads is in the Qur’an and the Hadith: Dabat Al-Ard (literally the Beast out of the Earth) is an Islamic version of the account of the “Beast of the Earth” in Revelation 13:11. But unlike the Bible, in which this beast is evil, the Qur’an gives him a holy mission to revive Islam and mark the foreheads of all true Muslim believers. According to Islamic tradition, the Beast emerges in the Last-Days: “And when the word is fulfilled concerning them, We shall bring forth a Beast of the Earth to speak unto them because mankind had not faith in Our revelations” (Qur’an. 27:82). “The prophet of Islam declared, ‘The first of the signs that will come is the rising of the sun from the place of its setting and the emergence of the Beast upon the people. Whichever of these two occurs before the other then the other is right behind it.’” (3)

Why do Muslims mark their foreheads with badges of submission to Allah? It comes from their belief that the hour is near: “The task of the Beast will be to distinguish the believers from the non-believers, with Prophet Moses’s staff it [the beast] will draw a line on the forehead of every [Muslim] believer … Thus there will be complete distinction between the Muslim and non-Muslim, so that if many parties sit at a dinner table, the Muslim and non-Muslim will be distinguished.” (4)

Can you imagine my shock when I studied the Bible? I was taught that a Beast would come “out of the earth” and he would mark the foreheads of all true Muslims. Do you see how Satan has turned everything upside down for Muslims? As a Muslim, I wanted the Mark of the Beast! Not surprisingly, according to Islamic tradition, this Beast comes out of Mecca. “The Beast will come out from Al-Masjid Al-Haraam in Makkah.” “The Prophet took me to a place in the desert, near Makkah. It was a dry piece of land surrounded by sand. The prophet said, ‘The Beast will emerge from this place.’ It was a very small area.” (5) Even as the Last-Days Beast religion has emerged out of Mecca, Islam also has the Beast emerging out of Mecca.
Amazingly, in the Bible, the angel took John to the desert to see the “woman,” or the “prostitute” riding a beast that most likely comes out of the desert of Arabia. Mecca is the “holiest” and most central location in all of Islamadom. What is evil to us is holy to them. According to Islamic tradition, “[The] Beast is some form of ultra-conglomerate of many different animals.” (6)

SO WHY DO SO MANY INSIST ON A COMPUTER CHIP FOR A MARK?

It’s the American fascination with sci-fi and the lack of observing exactly what God said in His Holy Bible. Many claim to believe in the Bible, yet they follow manmade tradition while they ignore the traditions of God claiming that they are anti-tradition when God Himself loves tradition, His. (2 Th 3:6).

Such is the condition of the church today in the West. The Bible warns not to take “the mark of his name”  (Revelation 14:9-12). This is not something that someone might accidentally embrace or receive. It is rather, an outward indicator of an inward allegiance or submission to the Beast. It is something that one must choose to accept by conviction. One cannot accept the Mark of the Beast without also implicitly denying Christ’s deity and the Trinity. The Greek word charagma, used for “mark” means “a stamp, an imprinted mark” (Strong’s 5480) and not a computer chip or barcode. So a follower of the Antichrist will have a stamp on some sort of material as a badge to be placed on the forehead or arm. In John’s time, the use for “charagma” was reserved for slaves in what was called a badge of servitude” (Strong’s 5482). So it’s a badge that declares slavery and ownership by the master and followers use it to demonstrate allegiance to this master. This would fit with Islam since according to Islamic theology, Muslims are “slaves of Allah.” Islam is the religion of submission.

These followers have an option to either place this badge of servitude on the foreheads or the right arms. Western analysts think that the mark is placed on or even in the hand. This is not necessarily the only spot. We know from the Greek word dexios, which could also be translated “right side”, “right arm” or “right shoulder”.

 

To become a Muslim (literally means submitter), one must confess the Shahadatan declaration to demonstrate allegiance and servitude to Allah and Muhammad. This submission is always combined with a commitment to fight the world: “Men, do you know what you are pledging yourselves to in swearing allegiance to this man? ‘Yes. In swearing allegiance to him we are pledging to wage war against all mankind’” (Ishaq: 204). “We are steadfast trusting Him. We have a Prophet by whom we will conquer all men” (Ishaq: 471). “In faith I do not fear the army of fate. He gave us the blood of their best men to drink when we led our army against them. We are a great army with a pungent smell. And we attack continuously, wherever our enemy is found” (Ishaq: 574).

This mentality can be observed in many of the arm badges and headbands they wear. These items contain Islamic mottos, creeds, words, and symbols which fulfill Scripture’s mandate. Often on the forehead the bands worn read: “No god but Allah, Muhammad is his messenger.” These all fulfill the blasphemous nature of the Mark of the Beast.

 

THE MARK IS THE NAME OF THE BEAST

The mark of the beast is defined in Revelation 13 as “the mark, which is the name of the beast.” First we need to understand that in the Bible, a “name” does not always indicate a literal name, as the modern Western mind understands the term. In the Bible, someone’s “name” is essentially a reference to the nature, character, and mission of the one who possesses it. It need not indicate a literal name per se, as it commonly does in the West.

Consider, for example, the following references to Jesus: “He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God,” (Revelation 19:13). Or, “On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords,” (Revelation 19:16). There is also the well-known passage in Matthew from the prophecy of Isaiah: “His name shall be called Immanuel which means God with us,” (Matthew 1:23).

In all of these passages, the “names” of Jesus are never literal names. If Isaiah prophesied that His Name shall be called Immanuel, and we insist on the literal name Immanuel, then Jesus would not be Messiah because his literal name is Yeshua and not Immanuel. We must think beyond the surface.

The mistake of not applying the same concept to the Beast is not as drastic. Yet, can you see the problem with identifying political figures to the Name of the Beast?
This method of applying literal names would be fatal for the case of the Messiah. This is why we need to hermeneutically apply the interpretation of the word “Name” in allegoric sense from previously fulfilled prophecies, and not a literal one.

THE NAME IS A CREED
So, in the case of the Messiah, Mary and Joseph did not call him Immanuel, nor did Jesus’ friends call him “the Word of God.” Instead, these are all titles and/or descriptions that refer specifically to the nature and the character of Jesus.

Also, the creed, or declaration of faith, in this Messiah matches His name: for we believe in the name God with us, and the Word was God, and He is also named Mighty God (Isaiah 9:6). Such are our creeds, while the Muslim carries a false name/creed that Allah is God and that Muhammad was sent by God when in fact Allah is the Lord of demons (Qur’an 69:43) and Muhammad is a false Messiah.

The significance of the Name of the Beast is that it is The Name of Blasphemy. (Revelation 13:1) Biblically speaking, blasphemy is an anti-Yahweh or anti-Christ word, deed or creed.

To claim the attributes of God, claim to be Messiah, deny the Holy Spirit, deny the trinity, the cross, or even denying God’s edicts and declarations—are all blasphemy. Satan blasphemed when he said, “I will be like the Most High,” (Is. 14:14) and so will the Antichrist claim to have “ascended to heaven”, exactly what Muhammad claimed.
