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.

January 2018: Turkey is quietly building a naval presence on the Red Sea. The Turks and the Sudanese have inked a deal.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has proclaimed Turkey has been given access to the Suakin Island from Sudan. The island is effectively across the Red Sea from Mecca, Saudia Arabia. Historically, Turkey is no stranger to the area. The Suakin Island has ties to the Ottoman Empire during the 16th century. The island was the capital of the Habes Province.

Turkey will manage and rebuild infrastructure. The agreement is open ended in regards to time. Sudanese Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour indicated military and security cooperation are part of the agreement. With the treaty, Turkey now has access to other ports in Sudan.

The military commanders in chief of Turkey, Qatar, and Sudan met at the signing. This alliance is consistent with the Sunni branch of Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood.


The alliance between Turkey and Sudan is concerning to the southern coalition of Sunni Muslims including Egypt and Saudia Arabia. Egypt is expressing concern. The Egyptians have a water problem. Access to the Nile River is the issue. Egypt gets 90% of their water from the Nile River. Sudan and Egypt are not working together regarding the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.

Egypt is currently spending millions beefing up their military. They recently purchased two helicopter carriers, one frigate from France, three submarines from Germany, and dozens of warplanes from France and Russia.


The Turks currently have a seaport in Somalia. Turkey already has military troops in Qatar. Turkey’s Recep Erdogan has his eyes on the religious sites in Mecca.

Water and Muslim religious sites are volatile issues.


The prophet Ezekiel stated Russia, Turkey, and allies are prophesied to invade Israel (Ezekiel 38-39). Russia and Sudan have recently formed ties. Russia has entered Libya as of early 2017.

The southern front of the invasion appears to be taking shape.



Trend Update: Sudan Calls Russia For Help, December 2017

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

And we have some movement on Magog’s southern front…

Genesis 2:13 The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush.

This is the first mention in the Bible of the land south of Egypt. The Hebrew word is Cush. It is translated as Cush or Ethiopia in the biblical text. It is a land in the southern Nile River valley. This is modern day Sudan.

See video link below for analysis and geography.

November 2017: Russian President Vladimir Putin invited Sudan President Omar al-Bashir to Sochi for a meeting. Sudan is asking for Russian protection against American aggression. The Sudan president is not exactly a choir boy in need of protection. He is wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide and war crimes.

al bashir“We are thankful to Russia for its position on the international arena, including Russia’s position in the protection of Sudan. We are in need of protection from the aggressive acts of the United States.” -Sudan President Omar al-Bashir

Bashir wants an arms deal with the Russians.

“We are currently launching a program to modernize our armed forces and we agreed with the defense minister that Russia will contribute to this,” Bashir indicated.

There was also a grain deal. Russia will sell 1 million tons of grain to Sudan.

“Sudan is a major buyer of our grain. We expect to increase the volume of grain sold to your market up to 1 million tons,” Vladimir Putin stated.

Beyond the grain, there is more to the story.

“Prospects are in place not merely in the hydrocarbons sector but also in the electric power industry and peaceful nuclear development.” -Russian President Vladimir Putin.


Russia has been in ancient Put or Libya since March 2017.

For those of you not familiar with the narrative, Ezekiel 37 has already happened in the mid 20th century. I would encourage all to read Ezekiel chapters 38-39. It appears to be on the verge of happening in the 21st century.

Magog’s gang is now complete and assembled, as promised by Ezekiel roughly 2,600 years ago…
