Rumors have been circling for the past 48 hours about the health of Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan.

Reports have not been confirmed that Erdogan suffered a heart attack and subsequently died. The Turkish government run news sources are suspiciously quiet. They are neither confirming or denying the reports.

Suspicion of Erdogan’s health is starting to leak into the mainstream media in the United States. Turkey’s Enes Kanter of the Boston Celtics has weighed in on the issue. Kanter is hardly a fan of Turkey’s president. Check out the article from NBC Sports.

Kanter is correct. If Erdogan has died, this will have serious implications in the Middle East and Europe.

And there’s the issue of Ezekiel 38-39 looming…

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.

Russia will be joined by several countries in their future invasion of Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). One of those countries is modern day Turkey.

At some point in the future, Russia is prophesied to invade Israel. The Bible says Russia and Turkey are going to join forces and invade Israel (Ezekiel 38-39).

Trend Update: Transgender, April 2016

Deuteronomy 22:5 A woman shall not wear man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.

The Hebrew word for “abomination” is tow`ebah. God sees crossdressing as tow`ebah or detestable or disgusting.

Those are God’s words. It is acknowledged, His words are offensive to segments of society. Eventually, His words are offensive to all of us if we are honest with ourselves. Please take your complaints and comments directly to Him. He will listen. He is a big boy. He can handle it.

The progressive, forward thinking critic would have us believe the transgender lifestyle is the next step in the evolution of humanity. The social experts tell us these new, complex, gender issues should have us leave the traditions of religion in the past. The government has imposed laws and executive orders reflecting this trend of political correctness. We live in a culture and society that has elevated its civil law above God’s Law.

God communicated His Law to Moses approximately 3,500 years ago. A point of this post is the practice of cross dressing was occurring thousands of years ago in the past. Transgender lifestyle is not cutting edge and trendy. It has always been. Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. It is stated in this verse three times…God created. God thought enough of humanity in His likeness to create us last. Conditions were perfect when Adam entered onto the scene. We were placed in optimal conditions for success. God gave us His best. Everything was brand new and shiny. We were made by God with a purpose and plan, male and female. He defined roles to complete and fulfill. He expects us to act accordingly.

Every person on the planet has a lifestyle issue that can be taken to task. There is no sliding scale or grading on the curve when it comes to sin. Judgment belongs to God. James 4:12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?

We are all in need of sin remission. Every single one of us is a sinner. We all have sin in our lives. Ecclesiastes 7:20 Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins.

And this is where the mercy, grace, and forgiveness of Jesus enters the scene. Christ loves us ALL in spite of our actions whatever they may be. He paid the penalty for sin. For those who believe, He has paid the fine for sin.

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit…

Romans 6:10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.

Hebrews 9:28a so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many…
