And there we have the whole of the Islamic mentality and source of identity that confronts the rest of the world. But will anyone listen to syed mohammad ali or any of the millions of others that covertly or openly embrace such a mindset. Is that really the kind of existence (forget peace) the west is willing to negotiate to?

People, the use of the term ambitious in representing Turkey is not a small matter of reference. Read elsewhere in this post and recall other exchanges to understand that Turkey is comprised of a people that do not thrive well by being viewed as a small partner in a larger scheme of circumstances. And Turkey represents a small fraction of the Muslim population that confronts the western mentality.

Recognizing Turkey for its place in all of the world's Middle Eastern perceptions is actually turning out to be pivotal in light of all the others thing that are happening. This is a very strange turnaround for a country that at one time comprised the whole of Christianity in symbolic and apocalyptic terms, being arrayed for the use of the returning HaMashiach at the end of the age. People, this is the circumstance of Turkey, right now. Do not miss it.

So for those who do not have the insight of why Turkey can become so prominent in Biblical prophetical terms, research the Scriptures and find the places of John's Revelation: the seven churches. If of an Islamic mindset, you really need not bother, for to those of the Muslim ideology, you will miss the point.

But Turkey does not appear in the Holy Bible for any small reason, much to the contradiction that Islamists will make. When the time does finally arrive for the gathering of nations to the meeting foretold by Almighty God, it is very likely we will find Turkey in complicity with the other nationalities (tribes) trying to force Islam on a world that could not recognize that Israel is really the blessed of Abraham; and that messing with Israel was not a very good idea, in the end.

So, how does one avoid making the mistake of misidentification of the circumstances? By believing that Jesus Christ, the Holy One of Israel who moved through the candlesticks of the seven churches telling the true Church what to expect in these end times, there is the expectation of the truth. Believe against the common misunderstanding that the Holy Bible is just fables; for do we see fables in the deaths of Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and other people alike for the cause of a peace that cannot be obtained by mankind? No, it is the truth of the Holy Bible that gives understanding to those who seek out Jesus Christ and find Him in faith.

Believing in Jesus Christ as the LORD Who is promised to return, Who redeemed a believing people from their sins by His substitutionary death on the cross, risen again for the justification of faith in Him in these modern times is the only means to arrive at the conclusion of what we are seeing in these troubling times. Turkey becoming part of the Islamic Ummah is only a part of it, but believing in Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior will provide the understanding of all the rest of it. The need to decide is not quite over for some; yet is already over for others. It is written, 'now is the appointed time for salvation,' and being at the foot of the cross to decide on a faith relationship with Jesus Christ is better than waiting for what is going to happen next and not being ready for it.

Turkey has already moved into position; the cogs of destiny are almost ready. Are you?
