“Some countries have missiles with nuclear warheads, not one or two. But (they tell us) we can’t have them. This, I cannot accept. There is no developed nation in the world that doesn’t have them” -President Erdogan

Erdogan’s primary complaint is the nation of Israel. For their part, Israel does not indicate their nuclear status in a positive or negative sense.

“We have Israel nearby, as almost neighbors. They scare (other nations) by possessing these. No one can touch them.” -President Erdogan.

Turkey previously signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty in 1980 and the 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty. Time will tell if these treaties mean anything to a man seeking nuclear weapons.

Erdogan did not stop with nuclear ambitions. He added some leverage to the situation by discussing the refugee situation in Syria.

Erdogan is demanding a “safe zone” in Syria. If an agreement is not reached with the United States, Erdogan has indicated he will release millions of refugees through Turkey into western Europe. Turkey’s president wants a deal by the end of September 2019.

“We will be forced to open the gates. We cannot be forced to handle the burden alone.”

There are an estimated 3.65 million Syrian refugees living in Turkey.

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 brothers of Magog (Meshech, Gomer, and Tubal) appear to point to modern day Turkey.

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 (Ezekiel 38-39).

International Economics and Bible Prophecy

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Michael Douville, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on August 26, 2019 by paulthepoke

Michael Douville and Paul Lehr discuss international economics and how it lines up with Biblical Prophecy. Biblical Prophecy is being fulfilled as we speak!

The economic situation in Turkey continues to deteriorate. The Turkish government is desperate for resources. How does the situation in modern day Turkey relate to Bible prophecy?

Ezekiel 38:12-13 to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth. Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all its leaders will say to you, ‘Have you come to seize spoil? Have you assembled your hosts to carry off plunder, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to seize great spoil?’

Will a strong US Dollar lead to the scenario of hyperinflation described in Revelation 6?

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Trump Agrees to Withdraw Troops from Syria, August 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Euphrates River, Ezekiel 38-39, Kurds/Medes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on August 9, 2019 by paulthepoke

Turkish Controlled Northern Syria, August 8, 2019: President Donald Trump has indicated the United States will withdraw US troops from the area. Turkey indicates an operation will be taking place.

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu made the following comments.

“In a telephone call with our president, the US president informed us that the US would be vacating the area. We will discuss the question of coordination after the withdrawal takes place. The agreement with the US on the creation of a safe zone is a very important first step.” 

“Our decision is to create a safe zone so that there are no terrorists there from the Syrian Kurdish self-defense forces and the Kurdistan Workers Party. But we will not allow this agreement to be turned into the [US] Roadmap for Manbij.”

https://syria.liveuamap.com/

Historically, the Turkish government under the leadership of President Recep Erdogan considers Kurdish forces and the Kurdistan Workers Party as terrorists.

In response, Syria is not approving of the arrangement. Syria understands this will likely mean more Turkish troops in their country. Syria has concerns of their sovereignty being threatened. The Syrian government considers the situation “dangerous”.

https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201908081076503766-us-to-withdraw-troops-from-area-of-turkish-operation-in-syria—ankara/

Social media sources indicate Turkey has already begun sending armed forces to the Syrian border north of the town of Kobani, Syria. The location is east of the Euphrates River.

With recent history as a guide… When the United States leaves an area in the Middle East, a vacuum is created. And each time, Biblical prophecy comes into focus. In this case, Turkey continues it’s march south towards Israel and its date with destiny as prophesied by Ezekiel 38-39.

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.

Turkey’s President Erdogan Heart Attack and Death??? July 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Ezekiel 38-39, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , on July 23, 2019 by paulthepoke

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.

https://www.nbcsports.com/boston/celtics/celtics-enes-kanter-rips-turkish-president-amid-unconfirmed-death-reports

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.

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).

1 Chronicles 12:32a And of the sons of Issachar, having understanding of the times, to know what Israel should do.

Economic trouble is forcing Turkey to look for help from Russian and China. Michael takes a look at the Global Economy and what it means for the U.S.

http://www.michaeldouville.com

Ezekiel 38:12 to capture spoil and to seize plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places which are now inhabited, and against the people who are gathered from the nations, who have acquired cattle and goods, who live at the center of the world.

These are the intentions of Gog, the leader of Magog (Russia). The Russians along with Turkey, Iran, and others are going to invade to steal natural resources from Israel.

The pieces of the puzzle keep falling into place…

Turkey Begins Filling Ilisu Dam, April 2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Euphrates River, Mosul/Nineveh, Persia/Elam/Iran, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on April 10, 2019 by paulthepoke

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan has issued the order to begin filling the Ilisu Dam. This dam will withhold the waters of the Tigris River. Experts estimate it will take two to three years to fill the lake behind the dam.

The Ilisu Dam is about 45 miles from Iraq. It is 1.1 miles in length. The dam is 443 feet in heigth. Ilisu is over a mile wide. The basin area is 127 square miles. The Ilisu Dam is a monster!

The Ilisu Dam is looking to produce 1,200 megawatts of electricity to southeast Turkey. Filling with water will relocate thousands of people. The water will also cover an ancient town thousands of years old.

Turkey is the point of origin for the Tigris River and the Euphrates River. This is of significance to the people of Iraq.

Seventy (70) percent of Iraq’s water comes from rivers in other countries. Recent water shortages in 2018 resulted in farmers leaving their land in Iraq. Restrictions were placed on planting crops. Reports of limited drinking water are noted in Iraq.

The Ilisu Dam is one of 22 dams Turkey intends to build on the Tigris River and the Euphrates River.

“Iraq is subject to a true water blockade and Turkey is using the water issue for political purposes. Iraq must take action to contain the crisis, which may extend for years to come. The UN and international organizations must intervene to solve this crisis. The common rivers are common property, and postponing filling the dam, or an abundance of rain, doesn’t mean a drought won’t occur, unless Iraq signs agreements to guarantee fixed water shares.” -Mansour al-Baiji, Iraqi Parliament Water Committee

Long term, Iraqi water issues are not going away. Iran is also blocking water flows into Iraq. The Iranians have stopped or reduced the flow of 42 rivers and streams into Iraq. Iran has built 109 dams blocking water flow into Iraq. There are others dams under construction in Iran at this time to further restrict water flow into Iraq.

Granted, this is later in the seven year tribulation. But this prophecy in Revelation 16 does not seem that far fetched now…

Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east.

Click on the link above for additional geography and analysis.

Currently, weeks of rain and melting snow have resulted in a short term flooding crisis across Iraq. Major lakes in Iraq are full. The Tigris and Euphrates are flooding.

Fear not, experts say everything is okay…

“We are in control of the dams and reservoir levels. We are not worried about their safety or stability. The ministry has warned people living in flood zones, is coordinating with local governments, and is monitoring the reservoir and dam pressure levels.” -Aoun Diab, Water Ministry Spokesman

https://www.voanews.com/a/iraq-seeks-to-reassure-over-reservoirs-and-dam-pressures/4868429.html

Nahum tells what the future of the Tigris River holds. He promises the judgment of ancient Nineveh or what is 21st century Mosul, Iraq. It comes with a flood after a long history of bloodshed.

Nahum 1:8 But with an overflowing flood He will make a complete end of the adversaries, and will pursue his enemies into darkness.

Nahum 2:6 The gates of the rivers are opened and the palace is dissolved.
