RT: Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu labeled Turkey a dark dictatorship which massacres minorities after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan likened Israeli politicians to Adolf Hitler over the controversial ‘nation-state’ law.
Turkey is turning into “a dark dictatorship” which “is massacring Syrians and Kurds and has jailed tens of thousands” of its citizens, Netanyahu said on Tuesday, responding to Erdogan’s attacks. The prime minister said that his government “scrupulously maintains equal rights for all its citizens,” while Erdogan’s criticism of the newly-enacted ‘nation-state law’ is actually “the greatest compliment” to the legislation.
Opinion: Recep Erdodan is showing his true colors after receiving massive powers in last month’s rigged election. His hatred of Israel and deep friendship and support for Hamas should be a wake up call to NATO that Erdogan has dark plans for Israel.
What has the Turkish strongman all worked up is Israel’s nation state law passed last week stating that “the right to exercise national determination in the State of Israel is unique to the Jewish people.”
Erdogan has no idea that the God of Israel planted the Jewish people back in the land (Amos 9:15) after almost 2000 years of exile for the very purpose of bringing an end to their transgression and reconcile them to Himself.
“Seventy weeks are determined
For your people and for your holy city,
To finish the transgression,
To make an end of sins,
To make reconciliation for iniquity,
To bring in everlasting righteousness,
To seal up vision and prophecy,
And to anoint the Most Holy.” Daniel 9:24
Erdogan could not possibly know that God revealed this plan to finish the transgression to the prophet Daniel over 2500 years ago. God told Daniel that 70 weeks (Hebrew Shabua 7 years) or 490 years would be required and would begin with an edict to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. The Persian King Artaxerxes fulfilled that part of the prophecy in 445 BC.
But that is not all. In the astounding prophecy of Daniel 9:25 the prophet was given a mathematical formula to know when the Messiah would arrive:
“Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem (decree of Artaxerxes in 445 BC), Until Messiah the Prince (First Coming of Jesus), There shall be seven weeks (49 years) and sixty-two weeks (434 years); The street shall be built again, and the wall, Even in troublesome times.”
- 7 weeks (49 years rebuilding Jerusalem)
- PLUS 62 weeks (434 years First Coming of Messiah)
- EQUALS 69 weeks (483 years = Triumphant entry into Jerusalem)
In Daniel 9:26 the angel continues with the emergence of Antichrist:
“And after the sixty-two weeks (49 + 434 = 483 years) Messiah shall be cut off (crucified in 32 AD), but not for Himself (Messiah had no posterity); And the people (of Roman empire) of the prince (Antichrist) who is to come, shall destroy the city (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary (Temple). The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined.”
The last 7 years of the prophecy still have not taken place, and will not do so until a peace treaty is signed and Antichrist is revealed:
Daniel 9:27 “Then he (Antichrist) shall confirm a covenant (peace) with many for one week (the last 7 years); But in the middle (3.5 years) of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice (animal sacrifice) and offering (Temple). And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”
“It will be the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7) and he will be saved out of it“.
The transgression was/is Israel’s sin of disobedience that will be brought to an end when they turn to Jesus as Messiah and mourn (Zechariah 12:10-12).
Jacob is Israel (Genesis 35:10).
