Ezekiel 38:2 Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him…

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.

July 13, 2017: Reports are emerging that Turkey and Russia have reached an arms deal regarding the S400 Missile Defense System. The deal is estimated to be at $2.5 to 3 billion. Four missile systems and missiles are part of the deal. Two batteries would be delivered to Turkey. The other two would be manufactured in Turkey. This would give Turkey the ability to initiate their own production of the S400 Missile System. The agreement is being called a “technology transfer”. Moscow is waiting on the check from Turkey.

Turkey is currently a member of NATO. The United States is utilizing the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey as a launching point for missions against ISIS. Turkey is also said to be in negotiations for F35A fighter jets and helicopter contracts. In addition, President Erdogan has personally expressed his dissatisfaction with President Trump and United States support of the Kurds in the region.

Recep Erdogan needs Russian support to rid himself of the Kurds. The S400 System has the ability to shoot down planes, missiles, and drones. Range of the system is up to 250 miles.

According to the prophet Ezekiel, Russia will be joined by several countries in their future invasion of Israel. Russian, Turkish economic and political ties continue to strengthen. Russia’s presence in Syria is reported to be for “peaceful purposes” and “stability” for the region.

President Erdogan of Turkey is a wild card in the geopolitical scenario. Erdogan does not care for Syrian President Assad. Erdogan wants Assad out. Problem, Assad is supported by Russia. Erdogan does not care for the Shia presence near ancient Nineveh or Mosul, Iraq. Problem, Iranian Shia are supported by Russia.

All that said…predominantly Iraqi Shia are supported by the United States near Mosul. The United States also supports predominantly Kurdish Sunni near Mosul.

From a year ago, 50,000 have been arrested. 150,000 have been fired.

Isaiah 3:6-7 Leadership Vacuum

Posted in Isaiah with tags , , , , , , on March 9, 2012 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 3:6-7 When a man lays hold of his brother in his father’s house, saying, “You have a cloak, you shall be our ruler, and these ruins will be under your charge,” He will protest on that day, saying, “I will not be your healer, for in my house there is neither bread nor cloak; you should not appoint me ruler of the people.”

The brother who is a medical professional is captured against his will. The aggressive brother “lays hold” of his brother. The concept is a simple action verb: to catch, handle, lay hold, take hold of, seize, wield, arrest, or catch. Notice the medical brother is under “protest”. He did not want to be there.

There were two kinds of cloaks during Isaiah’s day. Practically, one was a matter of warmth. The cloak was worn on the outside of garments. It was made of thick wool around the body, seaming it at the shoulders, and providing slits for the arms to go through. For many people the cloak was their only form of protection. If a cloak was taken in pledge for a loan, it had to be returned to the owner before nightfall for sleeping purposes (Exodus 22:26-27). For this reason a Jewish court of law would never award a cloak (New Manners and Customs of Bible Times).

The brother who has a medical background is assumed to be rich as indicated by the cloak. The fact that he has clothing is an indication of comparative wealth (Wycliffe Bible Commentary). The second form of cloak was like a loose dressing-gown with wide sleeves. Luxury cloaks were made of silk. A wealthy person would never think of going out of doors without one (New Manners and Customs of Bible Times).

The word “ruins” implies a mess. It is the Hebrew word makshelah. As defined by Strong’s, it means an overthrown mass, stumbling-block, something overthrown, decay, or ruin thing overthrown (figurative of kingdom). This word indicates the admission of a possible government coup. The youth have revolted against the establishment government.

Human nature is on display. The youth are in charge and it is not working the way they anticipated. Their solution, appoint the rich and blame them. Nice attitude! They are not interested in solving problems. They wanted a change and they got it. Blame the rich…

There is a clear vacuum of leadership. The previously wealthy medical professional wants no part of leadership. “…you should not appoint me ruler of the people.”  There is no wealth or food as indicated by the absence of cloak or bread. No one is willing to take responsibility for the national situation.
