Reader comment on item: A Conservative in the Age of Trump
in response to reader comment: Erdogan's ultimate objectives

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Feb 6, 2018 at 16:48

Anticipation is the best word that may be approached while endeavoring to make known that which may lead to salvation to them that have little to no time to ponder what happens next in the Middle East. All of the Scripture that has been spoken thence should henceforth come forth to life again, that in affirmation of the original pronouncements in which places spoken of in the ancient times are to be observed again in the final fulfillment of the prophetic saying of none other than Jesus Christ Himself.
All humankind with only one exception were born to a slave relationship with the prince of the power of the air; and the only way to escape is through the salvation bought and paid for by Jesus Christ. To surrender to Jesus in the love relationship He offers does indeed make us subject to His love instead of the hateful submission to a world that is set to perish upon the final execution of judgment portrayed in the Revelation. It reduces down to a choice: accept in prayer to submit Jesus in faith from the heart, asking forgiveness and be saved; or not. It is written; Jesus provides the choice; but the choice is still yours.
It is the same in the Middle East as it is here. If Abbas repented of his sins, even he would be saved. From his recent rhetoric of rebellion, it is not likely, so he must face that choice on his own.
Now, we have spoken about Erdoğan a number of times and whether he is represented as Gog of Magog or not, at this moment, it is still to be determined. What is already shown by his actions and words, though, is that he has decided to enter into an evil covenant to revive the former Islamically driven empire to become dominant in the region and that presents a problem for the Russian presence already there. Just recently, someone (supposedly from the Syrians fighting against themselves) shot down a Russian attack aircraft: that's got to be a serious matter the Russians are not likely to let go easily. This still needs investigation and, potentially, will require a Russian response. This, and possibly other minor (?) wartime infractions might make up for filler intervening actions while still expecting the commencement of the next intifada being promised by the Iranian proxies, are right on the close horizon. This cannot be so easily dismissed. Watchmen on the wall need to keep eyes open and moistened lips ready to blow the shofars.
So we see the region prepared in Ezekiel in 27; Russians already fulfilling the Ezekiel 38-39 scenario; and the prophetic intonations of Zephaniah calling for preparation of Zechariah's words coming true.
It's not Erdoǧan's objectives being seen; the LORD's roaring out of Zion is the ultimate to be seen.
