Sputnik News: “In a telephone conversation with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed his willingness to cooperate closely with Iran and Russia “to settle regional crises and restore peace and stability to the region.” But what do Russian political analysts make of the Turkish leader’s proposals?

As expected, the main topic of discussion between the Iranian and Turkish leaders during Tuesday’s phone call was the failed military coup attempt that rocked Ankara on Friday night. Rouhani emphasized that Iran welcomed the return of stability in Turkey, and praised “the great maturity of the Turkish people, who showed during this coup attempt that strong-arm tactics have no place in our region.”

But the two leaders also touched on the situation in the Middle East as a whole, and seem to have come to a consensus that there are global forces who are not satisfied with the idea of tranquility in the region. For his part, President Rouhani noted he has no doubt that together with the terrorists, there are also “some superpowers” trying to destabilize things.”

Opinion: Think of it: Russia, Turkey and Iran are forming an alliance right in front of a Biblically blind world. Amazing.

Ezek. 38:1-3 “Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal.”

Ezekiel prophesied a Russian, Turkish, Iranian alliance 2500 years ago:

  • Gog is a prince of (Rosh) Russia; a title of a strong leader.
  • Meshech and Tubal, once a part of (Turkey/ including Armenia.)

Ezek. 38:4 I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords.”

Ezek. 38:5 NIV “Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets,  also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you.”

Persia is modern day Iran.

  • Cush (eldest son of Noah’s son Ham) is the area of Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia.
  • Put (Son of Ham) Libya possibly Tunisia and Algeria
  • Meshech, Togarmah, Gomer and Beth Togarmah is (Asia Minor) also Turkey
  • Many nations with you: possibly additional North African Islamic allies.

This exact alliance has never existed in recorded history. This attack by such powerful armies on the tiny nation of Israel will look like the end of the Jewish state.

Britain, America and Saudi Arabia will be powerless (Ezek. 38: 13) only managing to ask Gog why he is attacking. Israel will be caught by surprise, but not alone.

Imagine the headlines on that day. Surely they will spell doom for Israel. No nation will lift a finger and yet Israel will be victorious once again (Ezek. 38:18-23).

On that day Israel will look to God (Ezek. 39:22) and they will know that the time has come to return home (Ezek. 39:28) and build a temple.

Some time either just before or during this miraculous victory, the Church will leave this earth (2 Thess. 4:16-18). The Jews will re-institute animal sacrifice (Dan. 9:27), and the last 7 years of the law that paused Daniel’s 70 weeks will be completed.

This battle will usher in the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer. 30:7) and 42 months later the great tribulation as described by Jesus in Matthew 24:21 will commence.

With the Church safely at home in the New Jerusalem, God will turn His attention to the Jew.

Borrowing a quote from Jimmy De Young: “The political is setting the stage for the prophetic to be fulfilled.

Front Page Mag: “Not even other Democrats like her.

Hillary Clinton has ruthlessly clawed her way to power. She has supporters, but no friends. After decades of victimizing women on behalf of a career sexual predator, she brought that predator up on stage to tell the world how much she loves families and children.

The best thing that can be said about the convention is that, like the rest of the Clinton campaign, it’s unremarkable. It’s bland and it’s boring. It’s full of the expected politicians and celebrities saying all the expected things about Hillary. But that’s what alibis look like. And that’s what this convention is. An alibi.

The Clintons are criminals who pretend to be activists. They’re greedy thieves who claim to want to make things better. They maintain a thin facade of normalcy as an alibi. It fooled some people a few decades ago. But it’s fooling fewer and fewer people. Even fewer and fewer Democrats.”

Opinion: I have to admit that Bill Clinton’s speech was more than I could take. I kept switching channels with each righteous platitude, all the while mumbling this cannot be happening again.

So in an effort to be accurate I tried to read the text this morning, but once again I couldn’t get very far.

“In the spring of 1971, I met a girl. The first time I saw her, we were, appropriately enough, in a class on political and civil rights. She had thick blond hair, big glasses. Wore no makeup. And she exuded this strength of self-possession I found magnetic.

After the class, I followed her out, intending to introduce myself. I got close enough to touch her back, but I couldn’t do it. Somehow, I knew this would not be just another tap on the shoulder, that I might be starting something I couldn’t stop.”

Had enough? Now you know why I switched channels.

JPost: Islamic State has already been waging war on Christians in Iraq and Syria, committing countless atrocities that in March were declared as genocide by the US Congress.

Previous attacks in France perpetrated by Islamic State and in its name have been against freedom of speech (Charlie Hebdo), Western liberalism (the Bataclan theater), the ideals of the French Revolution which stand at the heart of Western thought (the Bastille Day truck attack in Nice) and against Jews (Hyper Cacher).

“We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah,” read a statement from Islamic State spokesman Muhammad al-Adnani in 2014. In May, ahead of Ramadan, Adnani called on the “soldiers of the caliphate” to carry out attacks in Europe and the US and to target the “Crusaders.”

Opinion: Muslim Middle East nations know well that progressive politicians of the West, and especially the EU, are ready and willing to take millions of unvetted refugees on humanitarian grounds.

Unlike the European refugees that built America, this new wave of Muslim immigrants are not coming to assimilate but to form Muslim communities with the goal of establishing Shariah law.

Immigration in massive numbers (hijrah) made up of tens of thousands of mostly Muslim men converging on what was once a mostly Catholic continent helps explain the attack on a Catholic priest in Normandy yesterday as a new direction in this one-sided war.

But what did the terrorist mean by Breaking the Cross?

When the Church is called to meet Christ in the air (2 Thess 4:16-18) Islam will be the biggest and most powerful religion on earth and those immigrants could create chaos unlike any the world has ever known.

In a twist of Revelation 6:1-2, Shia eschatology teaches that the Mahdi (the 12th Imam) will ride a White Horse to stop the chaos of a global war.

The Mahdi will bring a deputy, Isa, son of Mary, to break the cross and teach Christians that Islam was correct all along. According to Islamic end time beliefs, the Mahdi, like Antichrist, will change the times and seasons (Daniel 2:21) and speak against the Most High God (Daniel 7:25) giving credence to the theory that Antichrist and the Mahdi are one and the same.

In our book Antichrist: the Search For Amalek we advanced the theory that the final global dictator will be an Edomite: Jewish and Gentile blood.

Close enough.

Washington Free Beacon: “Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State.”

Opinion: I wonder if John Kerry regrets this statement since …

  • A Catholic priest was beheaded by ISIS on Tuesday and Kerry is Catholic
  • He has a whole mess of air conditioners

The Daily Caller: “PHILADELPHIA — The Democratic National Convention has curtained off several “interfaith” spaces for prayer, but the only sign of religion in any of the spaces is Islam.

Convention goers looking to get in touch with the god of their choice can visit the “Interfaith Prayer Room” on the first floor of the Wells Fargo Center, which consists of a series of spaces sectioned off by curtains. A sign hangs over the first space, which is simply an empty room.

The second area has a few chairs and some prayer mats. A third large space is set up to accommodate Muslims, with a mat set up on the floor presumably facing Mecca and a sanitizing station so Muslims can wash before they pray.

A fourth space is another large empty room. Aside from Islam, no sign of any other religion was present.

Opinion: The obvious answer is that a cross might upset Muslims and according to the left-leaning Washington Post, the number of Muslim delegates attending the Democratic National Convention has quadrupled since 2004, according to a Muslim advocacy group.

“The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations counts more than 100 Muslim delegates representing some 20 states at the Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C., this week. That’s up from 25 delegates in 2004, according to CAIR.”

The sad part of this story is that we now have an answer as to why out of 61 speakers on Monday not 1 mentioned ISIS.
