Trend Update: Ezekiel 38-39, Israel and Turkey, Diplomatic Ties Restored, June 2016

Ezekiel 38:1-3 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-Togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

Historically Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, and Beth-Togarmah are associated with modern day Turkey. See attached link for more detail.

Israel and Turkey are in the news today, June 27, 2016, together. The agreement was brokered in Rome, Italy. Israel and Turkey have agreed to restore full diplomatic ties. The disagreement occurred when Israel captured a Turkish vessel off the coast of the Gaza Strip in May 2010.

As part of the agreement, Israel will pay $20 million to support the families of the victims. Turkey has agreed to drop all legal claims in the issue.

Turkey will also begin delivering aid to the Gaza Strip focusing on hospitals, water, and electricity.

Talks have begun between Israel and Turkey regarding the delivery of natural gas to Turkey from Israel. The Jewish state is looking to expand exports of natural gas into Europe. Turkey needs natural gas. The main supplier of natural gas to Turkey has been Russia. The supply of natural gas delivery has been in question since Turkey shot down a Russian military jet. As of June 27, 2016 Turkey has issued a public apology to Russia for downing their jet. The deal could have significant implications on Russia’s market share of natural gas sales…

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu states the deal provides stability in the Middle East.
