Front Page Mag: Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a desperate man. He is faced with turmoil at home and abroad, the Turkish lira is crashing and internationally he is in the doghouse.

Opinion: The wanna-be Sultan of Turkey is a dangerous man. His desire for unbridled power is obvious in his $615 million palace and recent disruption of a coup that may or may not have been a false flag.

Turkey, prior to 2010, was a mostly secular nation with a European feel. Turkey was also a staunch NATO ally until trading with Israel abruptly ended with the Mavi Marmara Flotilla incident on May 31, 2010.

It has been downhill from there.

Erdogan’s Islamic roots and support for Hamas was out in the open. The flotilla that was meant to end the Israeli blockade of Gaza was instead a blatant act of aggression on the part of Erdogan against the Jewish state.

The Israeli embargo was/is for the sole purpose of preventing weapons, missiles, and tunnel-building materials from entering Gaza. No humanitarian aid has ever been blocked.

In 2013, President Obama got into the act and coerced Netanyahu into making an apology for Turkey’s act of aggression and pay reparations of $20 million in a move that emboldened PM Erdogan. With the president of the US involved, Israel acquiesced.

Since then, Turkey has reestablished relations with Israel but Erdogan makes no secret of his support for Hamas – whose only reason for existence is the total destruction of Israel.

Since we know from Ezekiel 38:1-6 that Turkey will one day join in an invasion force led by Russia, we can conclude that Erdogan’s hand of reconciliation from Turkey is a fist.

Fed up with EU, Erdogan says Turkey could join Shanghai bloc

Reuters News: “President Tayyip Erdogan was quoted on Sunday as saying that Turkey did not need to join the European Union “at all costs” and could instead become part of a security bloc dominated by China, Russia and Central Asian nations.

Opinion: The Beijing-based Shanghai Bloc (Shanghai Cooperation Organization – SCO) was founded in 2001 consisting of China, Russia and the “stans”, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

In our post from June 26, 2014, “Turkey’s High Risk Power Play”, we said this:

“In preparation for its role in Ezekiel’s war of Gog and Magog, Turkey will shift away from NATO and likely join the Shanghai  Cooperation Organization (SCO). During a trip to Russia in November 2013, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan once again said that Ankara would abandon its quest to join the European Union if it was offered full membership in the SCO.”

Ezekiel 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.”.”

gwar

Most Bible prophecy teachers place Tubal, Gomer, Togarmah, and Meshech in today’s Turkey while Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan were once part of the Persian Empire.

Recip Tayyip Erdogan has no idea that his move to the SCO is a precursor to Bible prophecy:

“I hope that if there is a positive development there, I think if Turkey were to join the Shanghai Five, it will enable it to act with much greater ease.”

Russia/Turkey sign gas deal, seek common ground on Syria as ties warm

Reuters News: “Turkey and Russia signed an agreement on Monday for the construction of a major undersea gas pipeline and vowed to seek common ground on the war in Syria, accelerating a normalization in ties nearly a year after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan hosted Russia’s Vladimir Putin at an Ottoman-era villa in Istanbul for talks which touched on energy deals, trade and tourism ties, defense and the conflict in Syria, where the two leaders back opposing sides.

“Today has been a full day with President Putin of discussing Russia-Turkish relations … I have full confidence that the normalization of Turkish-Russian ties will continue at a fast pace,” Erdogan told a joint news conference.”

Opinion: Follow the energy.

  • Trouble started between Israel and Turkey over the Mavi Marmara incident (Gaza flotilla) in 2010.
  • Trouble started between Turkey and Russia over the November 2015 downing of a Russian jet forcing Erdogan to adjust his foreign policy and address its energy security issues by reestablishing ties with Israel.
  • Turkey needs natural gas, Israel has it, so does Russia, and Mr. Putin is not about to let Israel take away Russia’s customers.

Here is the problem: Israel’s natural gas line has to go first through Cyprus and then Turkey, which is the bridge between east and west, and Mr. Putin is determined to stop that from happening.

Backdrop for war?

If Israel can get enough foreign investment to get a pipeline built, Netanyahu will find himself as a major competitor with Russia whose economy depends on the sale of natural gas and oil from its state-owned oil giant Gazprom.

We know that sometime in the future after Israel is victorious in a war over her surrounding neighbors (Psalm 83:1-8), and is living in a false peace, Russia will launch a surprise invasion (Ezekiel 38:1-6) along with Turkey, Iran and North African allies on the mountains of Israel.

This attack will look to the world as certain doom for the Jewish state until God intervenes, since for reasons still un-clear, the US, Britain and Saudi Arabia will be powerless to stop it (Ezekiel 38:13).

Debkafile: “In an earthshaking Middle East development, the United States has begun secretly evacuating the tactical nuclear weapons it had stockpiled at the southern Turkish air base of Incirlik and is transporting them to US bases in Romania. The Obama administration has thus taken another step towards folding its tents in the Middle East. In contrast,
