TURKEY, the throne of Satan…..
The last days will be full of wars as the Islamic Muslim nations gather for war against Israel, and the leader of the pack will be Turkey where the anti-christ will appear on the scene.
Revelation 2:12,13 says: “And to the Angel (messenger) at Pergamum write: “I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is; and you hold fast My name and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.”
Pergamum is smack dab in the middle of Turkey and became the center of culture in the Hellenistic period for over 150 years. The famous Altar of Zeus was in Pergamum.
Every single solitary country the Bible states the wrath of God comes against on behalf of Israel are Islamic Muslim nations. The day of the Lord as described in Ezekiel 30 list Cush (Sudan), and Put (Libya and North Africa), and Lud (Turkey), and all Arabia, and Libya and all the people that that are in league with them. Zephaniah 2 states that the entire southwest modern region of Israel including the Gaza Strip will be utterly ruined. “For Gaza shall be deserted and Ashkelon shall become a desolation; Ashdod’s people shall be driven out at noon, and Ekron shall be uprooted. Woe to you inhabitants of the seacoast, you nation of the Cherethites!” Now you know why the Jews were made to leave the Gaza Strip, as God did not want them there when he delivers His wrath.
The Arab Spring is nothing more than preparing the nations of Satan and the armies of those countries to make war with Israel. The stupidity of the governments of the world thinking they are marching for democracy is so ridiculous as the Muslim Brotherhood have already taken control and are in the process of implementing Shari Law against the will of their own people. And it’s not over yet; several more countries are in line to do the same. The Lord also lists other nations for destruction in Joel 3 which are essentially Lebanon and the Gaza Strip; can you say Hezbollah and Hamas?
In Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the statue of the man, I believe that most Bible Scholars of End Time Prophesy have it wrong on the legs of iron. The legs of Iron are the Islamic Caliphate not the restored Roman Empire! The Islamic Caliphate conquered the entire region of his dream as the next kingdom, not the Roman Empire. The feet of mixed iron and clay are the restored Islamic caliphate headquartered in Turkey. Since the feet are mixed and divided, it’s easy to point out that that kingdom is none other than the Shi’a (the minority sect 14% of all Muslims) and the Sunnis, (The majority sect, 86% of all Muslims).
This division has been defined from the earliest days of Islam. The Sunnis feel the successor ship to Muhammad’s companions, or the Sahabah is theirs alone. The Shi’a Muslims feel that the successor ship belongs to Muhammad’s relatives. Mohammed believed that he could unite them through the advocacy of monotheistic religion, but he failed. You see the curse of Genesis prevents that unity. In Genesis 16:10-12 God made a covenant with Ishmael and He gave them the land east of Israel and stated that the Arab peoples would be like wild donkeys and always be in conflict with each other. They have been fighting each other since that time.
Ezekiel 38:21 says a sword will be summoned against Gog (which is Turkey, not Russia) and that every man’s sword will be against his brother i.e.; Sunni’s against Shi’a’s. If you look on a map of the Islamic Caliphate (c. 632-1923) you will see the all the nations that will be under full control of the anti-christ (not the whole world) and the nations who will join in and come against Israel under the control of the revived Islamic Caliphate. Israel will never be defeated, never !
What about America in the last days? Although nothing is specifically mentioned in the Bible linking America (unless you consider the wings on the Lion who separate) I have two thoughts. One is; America is no longer relevant as a world power and no longer the leader economically in the world and is perhaps not the America of old, but has gone the way of Europe into socialism and her economy has collapsed and her people riot and roam the streets killing and being killed or perhaps defeated in war with China or Russia or Islamic terrorist kill the her spirit. The other thought is America finally repents and comes back to the God after much judgment upon her (economic collapse, tremendous natural disasters and nationwide riots and lawlessness, terrorist bombings etc.), and she is one God uses to nuke and destroy the Islamic nations during the last days. Woe to anyone who tries to divide the land of Israel, for the judgement of God will soon take place, that includes America if she tries to divide the land of Israel.
The election of 2012 is about Good vs. Evil, about freedom vs. government control, about establishing the constitution based upon God or disregarding it and going the way of Europe and socialism and Marxism, about loving the babies and Seniors or discarding them like so much garbage. It’s a spiritual battle taking place and if the people who are called by His name don’t repent of their wicked ways and return to Him with all their heart, this land won’t be recognizable by 2016. Pray for America and Israel and for all the Christians throughout the world. And if your not born again, read Romans 10:10 and pray it out loud to God…..
