Trend Update: Calls to Close Incirlik Air Base??? Turkey/Russia/Iran Uniting, August 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.

The Bible and ancient historians point to the fact the land of Magog is modern day Russia. See attached post.

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet…

Russia will be joined by several countries with their future invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). Chief among those countries is Persia. This is modern day Iran. The country was known as Persia until the name change in the 20th century.

For Scripture support indicating Persia and Elam are modern day Iran, see the link below.

Iran and Turkey have struggled in the past for regional power and dominance.

In a strange twist, Iran supports the President Erdogan in Turkey. Strange in that Erdogan and Turkey are Sunni Muslims and the Iranian regime is Shia. These two countries disagree on how to manage Syria. History says Shia and Sunni do not get along and are competing factions of Islam.

August 7, 2016: Over 1 million Turks participated in the Democracy and Martyrs’ Rally in Istanbul. President Recep Erdogan announced he was in support of reinstituting the death penalty. This act is a step away from Europe.

He was also able to get all three of Turkey’s political party on the same page. This is being hailed as an incredible display of unity. There was worldwide media coverage of the event.

August 8, 2016 a lawmaker in Turkey has called for the closure of the Incirlik Air Base. He says the US/NATO occupied air base is a “virus” in the Middle East. It is viewed as a threat to the security of Turkey. President Erdogan is uniting Turkey.

August 8, 2016 Vladimir Putin met the leader of Iran Hassan Rouhani to increase military ties. Iran received military equipment including defense missiles. They continue to agree on the management of Syria. The meeting took place in Azerbaijan.

August 9, 2016 President Erdogan traveled to Russia to meet with “his good friend” President Vladimir Putin.  “This is a historic visit, a new beginning,” Erdogan said. The two countries look forward to restoring economic trade and ties. Let troubles of the past and downed aircraft be gone…

President Putin is now playing both sides of the Muslim equation, Sunni (Turkey) and Shia (Iran).

Russia, Turkey, and Iran are strengthening their political, economic, and military ties.

Is this blog identifying Recep Erdogan as the antichrist? NO!

Is this blog identifying Vladimir Putin as Gog? NO!

Is this blog stating current events of 2016 are the beginning of the fulfillment of the prophecy from Ezekiel 38-39? NO!

Is the group of nations assembling as written approximately 2,700 years ago by the prophet Ezekiel in chapter 38? YES and it definitely merits our attention. This group of nations has never been allied in the past. They have spent their history fighting against each other.
