Erdogan Erects Statue In Turkey, Will Behead Nonworshipers

ERDOGAN ERECTS STATUE IN TURKEY, WILL BEHEAD NONWORSHIPERS

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on the first anniversary of Turkey’s failed coup, said that beheading is coming to Turkey and all who betray him.

Turkey’s Primary Judge in the Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi (Justice Development Party), Hayrettin Karaman, wrote an article for Yeni Safak titled Shriah Will Rise Again, reported shoebat.com.

Karaman was quoted as saying,

“Compulsory religious education, Koranic courses, Arabic and Ottoman lessons, Islamization of all schools, sharia education and finally compulsory worship services in all schools.”

Erdogan was quoted also as saying,

“If Parliament passes a bill on resuming executions (beheading) in Turkey, I will sign it.”

Screen shot: YouTube.com – President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Could Recep Tayyip Erdogan be the upcoming antichrist, the last antichrist of the latter days? We can’t be certain, although he very well, thus far, fits the description.

It wasn’t that long ago that Barack Hussein Obama fit many of the descriptions of the antichrist. He may, or may not be the antichrist. Erdogan may, or may not be the final antichrist. The Bible tells us there are “many antichrists” (1 John 2:18); only one, however, will be the last antichrist, and we are rapidly approaching the end of time as we know it, before the great tribulation begins.

All of the antichrists have the same modus operandi (mode of operation).

As Prime Minister, Erdogan mandated reforms to return the properties of Christians and Jews, which were seized by the Turkish government in the 1930s. He consistently swayed in and out of humanitarianism and reform, ordering the demolition of the Monument to Humanity, which had been dedicated to encourage Armenian and Turkish relations.

Overall, Erdogan promoted Democracy during his early political career, but there have been hints of hypocrisy along the way.

Since Erdogan’s election to President of Turkey in August 2014, he has steadily become dictatorial.

On the anniversary this month of the attempted coup d’etat last year, Erdogan enacted laws to give him excessive powers. He also erected a monument depicting Tek Devlet (One State) and he stated in his speech that he will decapitate traitors.

Screen shot: YouTube.com – Tek Devlet monument

Screen shot: YouTube.com – pentagram – satanic symbol

Erdogan’s monument includes an inverted star at the top, which is also a pentagram, a satanic symbol. There is no difference between the two symbols. Does this not tell us something?

Erdogan came on the political scene in Turkey in the name of peace; but it turns out he and his main Fatwa Judge, Hayrettin Karaman, have already imposed sharia law, it will be mandated in the schools, and the opposition will be beheaded.

All of this sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

“And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honor of the kingdom, but he shall come in peaceably and obtain the kingdom by flatteries” Daniel 11:21.

This, in fact, is a very good description of Erdogan, in that he was barred from entering politics initially, due to an earlier conviction and incarceration, but the law was changed, which allowed him to run for office.

The Word of God tells us that the antichrist will behead those who refuse his mark on their right hand, or forehead, and who refuse to worship him.

“I saw thrones and they sat upon them and judgment was given unto them; and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, who had not worshiped the beast (antichrist), neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands, and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years” Revelation 20:4.

The Bible, in a number of instances, refers to the antichrist as the “Assyrian.” A good part of Turkey was included in the Assyrian Empire, which also persecuted God’s people.

“Therefore, thus saith the Lord God of hosts, Oh My people who dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian; he shall smite you with a rod and shall lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Egypt. For yet a little while and the indignation shall cease and My anger in their destruction” Isaiah 10:24-25.

“And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land and when he shall tread in our palaces; then shall we raise against him seven shepherds and eight principal men” Micah 5:5.

Erdogan announced on Sunday,

“The Al-Aqsa Mosque is the honor of 1.7 billion Muslims, not just Palestinians, and the Muslim world cannot wait to remain indifferent to the restrictions imposed on the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Actually, the Al-Aqsa Mosque is situated on the historical Jewish Temple Mount. Palestinian Muslims just shot and killed two Israeli police officers by smuggling guns onto the Temple Mount. The entire Muslim World is now protesting because Israel placed metal detectors at two entrances to the Temple Mount for security purposes.

These maniacal people don’t want security; they want to be able to smuggle more guns to the Temple Mount and continue killing Jews.

Israel is actually being extremely condescending with the Muslims. They should kick Muslims off the Temple Mount permanently – and out of Israel permanently because they are a menace to society; always killing people, stoning people, beheading people, burning people alive, burying people alive, etc. Factually, they don’t deserve to live on the face of the earth, but we do not exact judgment. The Bible says,

“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath, for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord” Romans 12:19.

Let us not become confused, however, as to the difference between vengeance, versus defending our families and ourselves.

A Message from God, Yesterday and Today

MOSES

Screen shot: YouTube.com

A MESSAGE FROM GOD, YESTERDAY AND TODAY

A message from God was spoken through the mouth of Moses thousands of years ago, which still reverberates throughout the world today, which people can only hear with their spiritual ears:

“Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; a blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day; and a curse, if you will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods which you have not known (actually can be anything placed in priority above God)” Deuteronomy 11:26-28.

The message still rings true today. Anyone who is willing to place God and His commandments above all else, love Him first, and do according to His will, as it is written in His Holy Word, will be blessed, oh so blessed!

Contrarily, those who defy the living God, do not fear Him, which is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10), and do not keep His Holy Commandments, as they are written in His Holy Word, will be cursed with an everlasting curse!

Under the New Covenant and dispensation of the mercy of God, however, there is a remedy extended to those who are living under the curse of the Law of God.

We may now come boldly before the throne of God and repent of our sins, turn away from evil, and be blessed!

All is not lost if you have been living under a curse in this life, friend.

Jesus said,

“Come unto Me, all of you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest unto your souls; for My yoke is easy and My burden is light” Matthew 11:28-30.

The Word of God tells us that the way of the transgressor is hard (Proverbs 13:15).

If you find yourself miserable, not prospering, losing on every hand, sad, heartbroken and on a path to destruction, look up to where your help will come from (Psalm 121:1).

The Lord looks down from heaven and searches for those who are His sheep and He has promised to bless them (Ezekiel 34:11).

Nevertheless, God is a gentle shepherd and He will never force the flock to come to Him; He waits patiently for us to heed His call:

“The Spirit (of God) and the Bride (His people) say, Come. Let him that hears say, Come. Let him that is athirst come, and whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely” Revelation 22:17.

Jesus also said,

“Whosoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:26.

Jesus is referring to the fact that our spirits live on forever.

Entering hell forever because of sins committed in this life is referred to as “eternal damnation” in the Word of God (Mark 3:29); but those who accept Jesus as their Savior will live in glory forever with Him; they will enter “eternal life” (Romans 6:23).

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining will also come to pass. Please don’t neglect your eternal soul. If you aren’t saved, I invite you to visit the How Can I Be Saved page of this website.  God bless you.

Praise Report – Iraqi Christian Girl Missing Three Years, Found!

Christina with her mother and father

PRAISE REPORT

Three years ago, a three-year-old Iraqi Christian girl was taken from her parents by ISIS. Her father wasn’t present, but she was abducted from her mother, Aida Nuh. I remember her saying how she begged them, bowing to the ground, to give her little girl back, but the terrorists threatened to shoot her, if she didn’t leave.

I remember Aida Nuh crying in desperation, as she told Christian missionaries what happened. It broke my heart, because I remember my son at age three and I wouldn’t have been able to stand it, if he had been taken by terrorists.

I asked for prayer at church for the return of this little girl to her family, and I placed them on my Daily Prayer List.

I remember day after day crying out to the Lord for this little girl and her family, telling the Lord that nothing was impossible for Him and that I was believing Him to send her back to her parents.

I also reminded the Lord frequently, as I cried out to Him, that the little girl’s mother said that they took her little girl, “but Jesus can bring her back!”

I reminded the Lord of that mother’s faith in Him, and how she proclaimed openly that “Jesus can bring her back,” and I told the Lord I was believing with her mother for her little girl’s return!

Jesus said,

“I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven (we must pray according to how God wants us to pray)” Matthew 18:19.

I have also prayed at different times during these past few years that the Lord would allow me to hear of this child’s return to her parents.

Every so often, I searched the internet for the return of the little girl to her Christian parents, but I never found anything about them, until today.

Today, Sunday, as I was researching the news, I visited Shoebat.com, the website of a former PLO terrorist from Bethlehem, converted to Christianity. Walid Shoebat’s site is a good source for Middle Eastern news (he has connections there) and I was looking for news about Syria.

As I searched a few articles, I suddenly came across an article titled, Six-Year-Old Christian Girl Kidnapped By ISIS Found and Reunited with Her Family. I then recognized the mother of the little girl, and I saw for the first time her daughter, Christina, whom I had prayed for these three years.

The prayer request is still written at the top right corner of my Daily Prayer List.

(prayer request circled at top right)

Please pray for the Nuh family. They are refugees in their war-torn country, so please pray for their strength and that their needs will be met.

I have hundreds of names written on different tablets that have accumulated over the years and I only remove a name on occasion, when the prayer request has been answered. This stack of prayer requests remains on my (make-shift) altar and, since I don’t have time to call out all the names every day, I pray for those that God leads me to pray for each day, then I lay my hands on all of the prayer requests and ask God collectively to meet all of the needs. (I pray for each request individually when I place it on the prayer list, and after that, as the Lord leads.)

I can tell you that I have cried out many, many times to God over these last few years for the return of this little girl, and for her family, and I am certain others have prayed.

I don’t say these things to boast about my prayer life. I am sharing this information as a testimony to those whose faith might be weak, and who may not really know how to pray. I say these things to build up your faith.

“You, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost (tongues – the gift of God freely given to those who ask for it)” Jude 1:20.

These Christian parents never gave up looking for their little girl and they searched cities for her, asking about her. After three years, they received a call from someone to let them know that Christina had been found in Hayy Al Tanak, in the City of Mosul. (As a result of the US-backed military offensive, Mosul has been liberated from Islamic State [ISIS] terrorists.)

Glory to God! I praise and magnify His great and holy name forever!

Over the years, I have learned this much, friends, we are not to limit what God can do!

I have also learned that God allows our faith to be tried at times and sometimes, actually many times, the answers do not come right away, but that does not mean God said no to our request, and that does not mean that He will not answer in His own time. In fact, if we hold on to faith and do not give up, and we remain faithful to the Lord, He will answer our prayers, He promised!

The Word of God tells us,

“…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” James 5:16.

“Let him ask in faith, nothing wavering, for he that wavers is like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed. Let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord” James 1:6 -7.

“He shall call upon Me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him” Psalms 91:15.

We must remain steadfast and immovable in our faith, saints, in order to see our prayers answered. God is faithful!

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.

Are You Sitting Outside, Or Coming In Through the Roof?

Christimages - Jesus_Heals_Man_With_Palsy

ChristImages.org

ARE YOU SITTING OUTSIDE, OR COMING IN THROUGH THE ROOF?

Some theologians believe that God healed only when Jesus and the apostles walked the earth. This, everyone should know, is not true.

First, God healed Abimelech on account of the prayer of a righteous man, Abraham (Genesis 20:17). So, we can see here that “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16). The first example of healing given in the Word of God is through the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man, Abraham.

The Word of God tells us,

Confess your faults one to another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” James 5:16.

God has been healing people for thousands of years, long before Jesus and the apostles walked the earth, and He still heals today.

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” Hebrews 13:8.

Here, God pronounces a condition whereby His people can be healed, 

“And (God) said, If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God and will do that which is right in His sight, and will give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians, for I am the Lord that heals you” Exodus 15:26.

This promise is for all of God’s people, if they will just believe it.

So far, through studying what the Word of God has to say about healing, we can determine that the effectual, fervent prayers of the righteous will move God’s hand to heal, confessing our faults and praying for one another will move God’s hand to heal, and obeying God’s will and His Word will provide healing.

Next, we see that “Moses was very meek above all the men which were upon the face of the earth” (Numbers 12:3), and Moses was “faithful” before God (Numbers 12:7); therefore, when “Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech Thee,” after seven days, the Lord healed Miriam, the sister of Moses (Numbers 12:13-14). Sometimes, God doesn’t heal immediately, but it is important that we still believe and trust in His Holy Word.

If we move ahead to the New Testament and examine instances when Christ and the apostles healed folks, we will not read about any occasion when Jesus refused to heal anyone who asked Him. You can read the entire New Testament about the healings Jesus performed and you will not find an instance when Jesus said, “No, I don’t want to heal you today,” or “This blessing isn’t for you,” or “We need a special Word from the Father first;” He never said any of that.

If we study the examples given throughout the New Testament, which was “written for our learning” (Romans 15:4), we find that for all of those whose hearts were sincere and ready to receive from God, for all of those who believed God could heal them, God provided healing. What is different today?

Today, there are physicians throughout every city, pharmacies all over the place, as well as plenty of hospitals. The world, and most of God’s people, have become accustomed to relying on all of these for healing. Most do not turn with their whole heart to God and look to Him for the healing first. It is generally the other way around. People try everything else first, then when/if they are desperate enough, they will look to God. Some trust God first, but often if they aren’t healed immediately, people are very quick to conclude that God chose not to heal them. It boils down to who you want to believe, the whole world, or God?

“God forbid; yes, let God be true, but every man a liar, as it is written, ‘That you might be justified in your sayings and might overcome when you are judged” Romans 3:4.

The popular sayings, because of the weakness and frailties of people, are, “God chose not to heal;” “It isn’t God’s will to heal;” “God doesn’t heal in our dispensation.” They are all liars. Why? Because the Word of God says they are all liars, according to the testimonies provided in God’s Holy Word. That’s enough. If I don’t receive healing, it’s going to be my own fault. I can’t try to place the blame on God, because He has already promised; He has already made the provision, according to His Holy Word:

“He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all” Isaiah 53:5-6 (Isaiah’s prophecy of the coming Savior. [My Jewish friends, who else can fulfill this prophecy and many others like it? Only Yeshua haMashiach!]).

The Word of God tells us,

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations, knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience; but let patience have her perfect work, that you might be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men liberally and upbraids not, and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering, for he who waivers is like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed. Let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord” James 1:2-7.

After we pray for healing, do we go away doubting, or commit to believing it will come to pass according to God’s Holy Word?

Jesus healed many who had only just learned who He was; they hadn’t really had any time to commit their ways to God and live a holy life before the Lord. Jesus healed many, so they would thank God and serve the Lord with their whole hearts and be saved. It was the same during the apostles’ ministries, when the gospel was just being spread throughout the world. Many were healed to glorify God and convert souls.

How much more should we believe, who have already tasted of the goodness of our blessed Savior?

God will do the same thing today. God knows who will have faith and believe until they receive. He also knows when doubt is present and remains in the hearts of people, “let not that man think he shall receive anything of the Lord.” The Word of God is true, it never changes, and God doesn’t lie.

Some have been blessed with the gift of healing. The Word of God tells us,

“And God has set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues” 1 Corinthians 12:28.

We see here that God has placed certain ones in the church with the “gifts of healings.” They are gifted with the constant, unwavering faith to heal. The Bible also tells us,

“Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord and the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up and if he has committed any sins, they shall be forgiven him” James 5:14-15.

Sometimes we don’t have any oil on hand. God is aware of that and He doesn’t withhold for that purpose. If you have oil, use it. It demonstrates an act of faith and obedience to God’s Holy Word.

We have seen some notable people throughout the church in our generation with the gifts of healing: Katherine Kuhlman, Oral Roberts, RW Schambach and there are more. My great grandmother, Emily Alice Brown, was one of them, but she was poor and she wasn’t renowned. Her family and neighbors all knew where to go when they were sick though. What did these all have in common? Each of them was wholly committed to God; they lived sanctified lives, they had great faith and demonstrated no doubt in what God could do.

I will leave you with a testimony given in the Gospel of Mark:

“And there came unto Him (Jesus), bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four; and when they could not come near Him for the press, they uncovered the roof where He was, and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw their faith, He said unto the sick of the palsy, ‘Son, your sins be forgiven you…I say unto you, Arise, and take up your bed and go your way into your house;’ and immediately he arose, took up the bed and went forth before them all, insomuch that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, We never saw it in this fashion” Mark 2:3-5, 11-12.

I dare say that if you haven’t received the Lord as your Savior, but you believe He has the power to heal your illness, if you believe Him with all of your heart and ask Him to heal you, and you intend to receive the Lord and serve Him the rest of your days, He will heal you. As Jesus said to the impotent man, who had been sick for 38 years, and lying at the pool of Bethesda,

“…Behold, you are made whole; sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto you” John 5:14.

I also proclaim to those of you who half-heartedly serve the Lord: If you will serve the Lord with your whole heart and surrender all to Him; If you believe Him with your whole heart, even if the entire world tells you it isn’t possible, if you deny the whole world and put all of your faith (without wavering) in the promise of God, He will heal you. How do I know this? Simply because God’s Holy Word commands it.

Yes, what some say about “sickness unto death” might very well be true. It may be your time to leave this world, and when God says it’s time, it’s time. However, because God is faithful to His Word, if you believe with all of your heart, He will heal you, then you will die and leave this world just the same, because God doesn’t lie. He may heal you one minute and take you to glory the next, but He is still faithful to His Word.

Are you willing to believe God, no matter what it takes, or how much time it takes? The friends of the one afflicted with palsy (paralysis) could have stayed outside and given up, but they decided it would be worth it to tear up the roof and let their loved one down to Jesus, in order to get the promise.

Sometimes a world of doubters all around you can hinder your faith and the blessings. The Word of God tells us,

“Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God…” Romans 14:22.

Sometimes, with all of the “nay sayers” around, you just have to believe God privately, because the devil is going to use people around you to discourage you, even some people who are Christians, but get out of the will of God. This is exactly why Jesus healed away from those who did not believe, or even kicked them out of a sick room (Mark 8:22-25, Mark 5:38-42)

Don’t think you are going to ignore God’s will, live in sin and rebellion, doubt God, have half-hearted faith, but still receive the promise of healing. It isn’t going to happen!

My great grandmother, Emily Alice Brown, whose family and neighbors used to bring their sick to her for prayer and healing, sometimes said this: “If you can’t pray the ‘prayer of faith,’ you’d better get to a doctor.”

Are you ready to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, please visit the How Can I Be Saved page of this website. Your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
