The concerning issue has to do with the current turmoil in other relatively "stable" regimes throughout the Middle East, and how these changes are ushering in radical Islamic elements, also predictable based on biblical prophecy.
Once again, Caroline Glick provides a highly germane commentary:
Turkey's Cautionary Tale
Today's Turkey is a cautionary tale for the West. But Western leaders are loath to consider its lessons.
Unfortunately, nine years into the AKP's "democratic" regime it is clear that Erdogan and his colleagues' embrace of the language and tools of democracy was a mile wide and an inch thick. They used democracy to gain power. Now that they have power, they are systematically destroying freedom in their country.
TURKEY'S DESCENT into Islamist tyranny has not simply destroyed freedom in Turkey. It has transformed Turkey's strategic posture in a manner that is disastrous for the West. And yet, in this arena as well, the West refuses to notice what is happening.
Turkey supports Hamas and Hizbullah. It has begun training the Syrian military. It supports Iran's nuclear weapons program. It has become the Iranian regime's economic lifeline by allowing the mullahs to use Turkish markets to bypass the UN sanctions regime.
In less than 10 years, the AKP regime has dismantled Turkey's strategic alliance with Israel. It has inculcated the formerly tolerant if not pro- Israel Turkish public with virulent anti-Semitism. It is this systematic indoctrination to Jew-hatred that has emboldened Turkish leaders to announce publicly that they support going to war against Israel.
What I find interesting about Turkey's transformation into a radical Islamic regime is the fact that Bible prophecy watchers predicted this - even years ago when Turkey appeared to be on the road to a democratic form of government and possible entry into the EU. Not now.
But perhaps more importantly, is how Turkey can be seen as a model for radical Islam, who is in the process of seizing control of the few moderate countries left in the region - and this process is occurring at light speed:
TURKEY IS a cautionary tale for the West, which is now faced with the prospect of AKP-like regimes from Egypt to Tunisia to Jordan to the Persian Gulf.
And the real issue that Western leaders must address is how things in Turkey were permitted to deteriorate to the point they have without any US or European official lifting a finger to stem the Islamist tide? The answer, it would seem, is a combination of professional laziness and cultural weakness. This mix of factors is also on display in the US's behavior toward the revolutionary forces active throughout much of the Arab world.
Professional laziness stands at the root of the West's decision not to contend with the unpleasant truth that the AKP is an Islamist party whose basic ideology has more in common with Osama bin Laden's values than with George Washington's
The West chose not to pay attention because its senior officials knew if they did, they would have to do something. They would have had to distance themselves from Turkey, remove Turkey from NATO and seek to contain the power of the Erdogan regime. And this would have been hard and unpleasant.
This seems obvious to anyone who has watched this evolution in real time and willing to seek the truth.
Now we see the parallels to Egypt and other countries in the region:
Likewise, in post-Mubarak Egypt, it is easier to believe fairy tales about Facebook revolutions and Westernized student leaders than face the harsh truth that from Amr Moussa to Mohamed ElBaradei to Yousef Qaradawi there are no leaders in post-Mubarak Egypt who support the peace with Israel or believe that Egypt has common interests with Israel and the US. There are no potential leaders in Egypt who share Western values of individual liberty and human rights.
Ouch. That hurts - but the truth often does. More below:
Rather than do any of these hard things, Western leaders have lied to themselves about the nature of these forces and regimes. They have told themselves that there is no problem with the likes of Erdogan and his Egyptian cohorts, and opted to limit their meddling in the internal affairs of others to endless attempts to undermine and overthrow successive pro- Western, democratic, non-leftist governments in Israel.
These governments, they have argued, must be replaced by leftist parties in order to feed the West's fantasy that all the problems of the region, all its Qaradawis and Erdogans, will magically become Thomas Jeffersons and John Adamses if Israel would just cut a deal with the PLO.
This fantasy is convenient for lazy Western cultural cowards. They know that there will be no pushback for their policies. Israel won't attack them. And by pretending the Islamists share their values and strategic interests they are free to take no action to defend their values and strategic interests from Islamist assault.
But while this strategy has been convenient for policymakers, it has done great damage to their countries. The growing menace that is Islamist Turkey teaches us that professional laziness and cultural squeamishness are recipes for strategic disasters.
And thus, with the above mindset, we continue to see the biblical coalitions forming - coalitions who will invade Israel in attempts to destroy the nation and bring forth Sharia Law throughout the land, and ultimately the world, via the Mahdi who is predicted to "return" in the midst of such violence in the Middle East.
Its all happening exactly as a literal view of the prophetic scriptures would dictate.
Just as we have observed for thousands of years of literal fulfillment of biblical prophecy. Would we expect anything else?
After all, we already know how prophecy is fulfilled and confirmed by the apostle Peter:
"And we have the word of the prophets made more certain and you will do well to pay attention to it, as a light shining in a dark place...Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of scripture came about by the prophets own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God..."
(2 Peter 1:19-21)
""And we have the word of the prophets made more certain and you will do well to pay attention to it, as a light shining in a dark place...Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of scripture came about by the prophets own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God..."
(2 Peter 1:19-21)"
Such a wonderful Scripture.Never have
conditions in this world looked so
dark and never have we needed the
light of God's truth, His promises
do desperately as we do now.
Hmmm need an edit feature.
SO desperately. :)
I would be even less kind than the article in calling all this "laziness"; I call it high treason. These western leaders, US included, know exactly what they're doing; I can't believe they are as stupid as they appear. They are cunning and sneaky, highly trained in the dark arts of deception and dripping with megalomania. They WANT oppressive Islamic regimes throughout the ME because they too hate Israel. They hate democracy/republics because they hate us all as well. They fully intend to reduce the world's population to a few million slaves who will keep them in luxury while living in grass huts. Israel is the last great obstacle to their twisted utopia, and they are tired of the shadow wars they've been fighting and the gradualism that got them here.
What role do you think weather weapons have played and will play in these end times events? With the ability of many nations through HAARP and scalar technology to create all kinds of devastating environmental conditions - earthquakes, hurricanes, lightning strikes, drought, etc. - without leaving a fingerprint, it's not difficult to imagine how Damascus could become a "ruinous heap" Isaiah 17:1 and the coalition of Gog nations a fast approaching reality. Weather warfare gives new meaning to the description "prince of the power of the air."
as shallow and callous as this may sound...im need a bumper sticker that says "i used to care, but now im just waiting for JESUS!" I've spent my life trying to do what is right and be a good girl. I'm tired and almost everything I have believed in with the exception of God, has turned out to be a lie. :( however God is NOT a lier! and all that he says is going to pass is going to pass. I am surprised i am not constantly tripping and falling because i never look at the ground nowadays. I AM CONTINUALLY LOOKING UP! Thank you all so much for keeping me encouraged! The direction we are heading as a nation is really bumming me out

"Javier Solana, former secretary general of NATO and former Spanish Minister
'Europe lacks greater governance in economics'
The exalted representative of the Council for the Common Foreign and Security Policy of the EU, Javier Solana, participated in yesterday's Business Day Elkargi, where he referred to the deficiencies in Europe to regain a leadership position in a globalized world
Carlos Etxeberri - Thursday, April 14, 2011 - Updated at 05:39 h
'The crisis has highlighted a lack of leadership in Europe?
In difficult situations manifest the capabilities and weaknesses of each. Do not want to talk about any particular leader, but it's true, not only in Europe but in general in the world, has been missing in my opinion a little more leadership.
There emerged the rescue mechanisms for countries in a bad situation ...Should they survive these measures?
You should go slowly moving toward organizations like the G-20. There are already institutions like the IMF, the World Bank, World Trade Organization. All these institutions must play an increasingly important role because the problems are global, then the solutions must take the field. Requires institutions of global governance. The G-20 has been very useful for stability. We must give more value, more media and more operational capacity of these institutions.
'Cree also required a restructuring of the European financial system?
Surely we must do it. It affects not only Europe but the United States.
How does the future of Europe?
I think Europe will end up being a key player in the world order. It is the first example of what it is to build a world where nation-states give freely to a higher court. It is a wonderful example of what can be done. Europe has a need for greater governance in the field of economics, which was not prepared until now. There has never been a crisis of this nature.'"
Let's tie some "loose strings" together shall we?. We have a comet headed our way name elenin, in which its closest point its suppose to be to the earth is september/october. In the movie Deep impact we had a black president (morgan freeman) and the name of the secret project about the comet in which they were working on was called E.L.E (Extinction Level Event). Now in end times the "Great Babylon" is wiped off the map, Revelation 18:2-3 "And he cried out with a strong voice, saying: “She has fallen! Babylon the Great has fallen, and she has become a dwelling place of demons and a lurking place of every unclean exhalation and a lurking place of every unclean and hated bird! For because of the wine of the anger of her fornication all the nations have fallen [victim], and the kings of the earth committed fornication with her, and the traveling merchants of the earth became rich due to the power of her shameless luxury.”
Revelation 8:8 "And the second angel blew his trumpet. And something like a great mountain burning with fire was hurled into the sea. And a third of the sea became blood". Now I think its important to note we are considered the melting pot hints "The Kings Of the earth and traveling merchants" portion of the babylon scripture. Also I would like to point out that america has always been called the "Great Satan" a nick-name giving in 1900 by iran's first dictator. The CIA has moved its headquarters to denver, youtube denver underground airport (that's really a bunker). They have been building these bunkers around the U.S. for quite sometime now. Get this they say the comet appears to be under "intelligent control" go figure right?. Now its suppose to be closest to earth september/october, what has been the deadline for everything september correct me if I'm wrong, but these things just flow together all to well.
Now I bring you to the Mark Of The Beast, Just Lines up perfectly with what I'm saying. Here's a quote from an article that appeared in the L.A. times about the tough sell it would be "at the time" to impose the RFID Chip on the american people. Keith Bolton Chief Technology Officer Of Applied Digital Science Says "The Bottom Line is, when people are trying to regain there piece of mind, there more open to new approaches". Hmmmm so what would cause someone to have to "regain there piece of mind". O I know! Comet Blast. Remember 911 hints The patriot act is born, just imagine scared people are going to be when an "unexpected comet" drops out of the sky, perfect timing?, But get this the RFID chip is going to be mandatory by 2014. Perfect Timing these people have underground cities built and everything. Ill post the links to this information. Ok now think about it go underground let the dust settle for about two years then re-emerge RFID chip in full effect remember the bigger the "tragedy" the control people are willing to give up for "protection"
RFID chip + Regaining "piece of mind" statement
Obama + RFID chip madatory by 2014
Letter From Norweigian Politician On Bunkers in Norway
Like daniel said "knowledge and travel" will be increased the more you open up your mind and don't close it off, the more God on Most High will show you. Subscribe to Mr2tuff on youtube he will keep you up to date on planet Nibiru and comet elenin (Important To Note they are two different things). Start researching Planet Nibiru and the effects its approach is having on the planet earth. Time to step outside the box because we have been lied to our entire human history
Son of God through Christ- man it sounds like you are where i was awhile back. There is a ton of stuff out there that will scare the pants off of you. Fema prison camps already staffed stocked and running with no prisoners yet, comet elehin which is really planet x, the growing abscence of bees to polinate our food, nwo, rise of islam, nations against Israel, tainted flu vaccines, false flag ops, ufo alien etc. I believe that a lot of it is true! But dont let Satan and his crew steal your sanity. do not look at this...LOOK AT CHRIST! He is our refuge my friend. He has it all under control. Trust him and only him! Hopefully we will be outta here before it all pops off. and if not...he holds us-ally
I definitely hear you on that, but the father has giving me assurance, to tell you the truth it doesn't scare me at all. A friend of mine called me and asked "what do you think about the governement shut down?" I just started laughing, as you might imagine she was very upset because that is a serious matter, but I'm to the point to where I'm in the know, I know what's promised and if the Father speaketh so shall it be, we cannot change any of this but what we can do is play a role in the biggest blockbuster that has ever hit the screen, the question is what role will you play? and I don't know about you but, I'm trying to win a oscar lol. "each man is awarded in heaven according to his works" that being said I love people I'm just trying to make sure that everybody makes it in the house, before it starts storming you feel me?, because right now its sprinkling, My father is kind of busy at the moment so he sent me to the door, I just want everybody to get inside before it starts to pour. Its amazing to watch these things come true right before our very eyes, I'm a prophecy watcher not panicker lol, But for a lot of people this is very scary. The messiah said you must become like a child before entering into his fathers kingdom, we get to star in this movie and watch it at the sametime how amazing is that? I'm happy as a kid getting ready to watch their favorite cartoon show, now I know what the messiah means, this babysitter is evil and The Father is on his way he's sending his son to pick us up I'm ready to go home how about you?
Planet Nibiru and Comet Elenin now Levy and Honda are all different. This is what jesus also meant when he said "you must become like a child" Meaning you have to open up your mind to truth that can also be validated. Before the prophetic scriptures which provide some form of validation, how could you even begin to even prove if God exsisted?. Atheist for years have been having a field day with this. It says He is the living, eternal, immortal God. Our whole "God" concept has to be changed from what we are accustomed to thinking. We've always been taught God is a poof spirit like ghost everywhere at one time all knowing all seeing but let's examine and ask how is this so? If you recall in genesis God has to search for Adam because he does not know where he is correct? If this God was all knowing and all seeing then why would he have to search for Adam.? Surely A God that can transcend time and create the world in seven days can easily find a hiding human-being right? We have always been taught not to question the scripture because it is "The Word Of God", honest question do you think God needs religion? That's the majority of the problem today. Its not a war amongst men its a war amongst "War Gods" as you recall in the old testament God orders men to hunt down tribes kill people keep the virgins for yourself, break down the walls of city's, now does that sound like a mercyful, loving, patient, understanding God who we all love? Because if it does regardless of what jesus did for us on the cross a God like that will not forgive us, now how does God go from taking no crap, putting up with nothing, to sending his only begotten son to die for humanity? Obviously these are two different Gods a person with logic and common sense will see this, like daniel said in end times knowledge will be increased I have become like a child so God on most High has opened my eyes and allowed me to see the truth a wise man once told me "don't say it if you can't prove it" I only speak on what I can prove. A lot of the stories we receive from our bible come down to us from the ancient sumerians the history books need to be re-written. The bible is a true account you can look around and see that, but let's get the proof t validate the story, Think about this the sumerians the very first civilization on earth from where we get the early beginning part of our biblical stories, they say what they had to say was a "myth" but a myth has to start somewhere right.? So if they were the very first civilization then who did they get it from? I know good question right lol it had to come from somewhere in this world (not age) of lies and deception I need proof or some form of it that makes logical sense. Everything we know EXCEPT for the prophectic scripture is a lie and if you are a truth seeker like I am, then you have to get to the bottom of it. I thirst for truth I hunger for knowledge God on Most High has quenched my thirst and filled my stomach. Most High gave us free will and choice let it us validate what we have been told and stop going by blind faith our eyes have been shut for to long, its time to see the Truth
Sorry to write books lol there's just a lot that has to be said in such little time, and I'm sorry if I offend anybody but like scott just wrote in his article "the trut hurts, and often does". The truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth is I wouldn't say "unbelievable" but it is only in the sense that we have been trained and conditioned for so many years to believe what "they wanted" and not what is. Repitition brands memory, even if it isn't "The Truth". Just think about this if Moses could blend in at pharoah's house in egypt and jesus could go to egypt to "blend in" unnoticed then that would mean hebrews, egyptians, and jews all must have looked alike at one point correct? Correct me if I'm wrong. Now fast foward the tape and compare a hebrew, jew, and egyptian today? Would a jew be able to "blend in" unnoticed and be mistaken for an egyptian in today's world? I think not. Obviously "jews" "hebrews" and "egyptians" have underwent a dramatic change over time, so one must ask if everyone back then looked aliked and could blend in between country to country then who were the original hebrews and israelites, but I refer to what scott said the truth hurts sometimes. Any truthful person would seek to find the answers to these questions as I have, and what's amazing is it has been right in front of our face THE WHOLE ENTIRE TIME. We "read" the bible but we don't READ the bible. The truth is shocking . Once again I'm not here to offend I don't have a "personal agenda" so to speak I just want the truth and a truthful person who are tired of all these lies would want that also agreed? But once again I quote daniel "knowledge will be increased"
this is not my blog. It belongs to Scott so I think he should probably talk to you. However, i sense from what you have written that you have been lied to by the enemy, the father of lies, Satan! The Holy Bible is the unfailable Word of God. True from Genesis to Revelation. Dont get confused by all the other info thats out there. That has happened to me before. just go with the Word brother. All the answers are in it!-ally
I suspect mania. May G-d give you peace in the name of Yeshua.
PEACE-GOD BLESS YOU ALL
Since the bible is truth from beginning to end I leave you with straight from the bible, the curses imposed on Israel For not obeying the laws that were handed down from moses to the hebrew israelites deutueronomy 28:68. Scott is a very truthful person this man has a gift from relating the prophetic scripture to articles in the news. Scott you be the judge and tell me if "Satan has lied to me" lol.
Like Daniel said "Knowledge will be increased" and like Scott said the truth is hurts sometimes. Just staying on the bible read duetueronomy 28:68 and the curses God imposed on his people for not following the laws he sent down through moses and use your common sense ask yourself, does this apply to the "jews" of today. These curses were imposed post-egypt forever. You have to love the word of God on Most High he always does what he said he would. Become like a child jesus said. Without bias, without conviction, wide eyed open for knowledge, open minded, weigh the evidence, this is exactly what the messiah meant. Its not about right or wrong anymore its about the truth. Question is can people handle it? God Bless all you regardless of how you may feel about what I said. Scott I appreciate the blog your prophetic/news article relating skills are magneficent. Just read the scripture and truth is right there deutueronomy 28-68
Physical Description According To the scripture that is truth from genesis to revelation of the ancient israelites and egyptians... the scripture doesn't lie
According to the Revelation; the Mark of the Beast comes in with the False Prophet at the end of the FIRST 3 ½ years of the 70th week.
The second trumpet is blown just into the SECOND 3 ½ years of the Tribulation.
So this comet or 'planet' cannot be IT this year even if the Tribulation begins immediately.
Know the Truth and the truth shall make you free!
Childlike faith describes absolute Trust in Jesus.
What you have described is simplistic idiocy.
Get your eyes upon Jesus!
Phil 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,
THINK ON THESE THINGS.
And he (Jesus)arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, PEACE, BE STILL. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.Mark 4:29
That verse in Mark 4:29 - I believe - Is far more profound than many give credit for...Think of the absolute POWER of Jesus - who can change things on earth dramatically just with the spoken word. Its worth some reflection isn't it?
Uuuhhhmmmmm... my KJV for Mark 4:29 reads:
"But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come."
You guys aren't using that JW New Whirled Translation again, are ye??
I was assuming it was the corresponding scripture w/o looking it up.
Can someone find exactly where that scripture is regarding Jesus rebuking the storm?
EI came up about 10 points short on her verses.
It wuz 4:39. And I thot you knew better than to 'assume'.
Oh my goodness gracious me; I bin and gone and done a boo boo. Thats what comes of getting airiated.
But that comment was a bit of a 'fruit' and it did need cutting orf at the pass, God bless him, what a state to get into.
Scott I am SO sorry for leading you astray. I consider mesen well and truly 'told' by DrNofog. :D
Little did DrNo know (hows that for a play on words?) - we just set him up to see if he knew his scriptures....
So he "passed" the test this time....We'll see if he can keep it up. :)
I assume that it's my turn to assume that you were not asleep at the keyboard and that it was not a scenario that you wanted to let play out.
I thot I was having connection confusion at my end, or a 'Blogger' service overload. I respect your diligence [and you can always send me an email for correction]!
"...a play on words"
"...we just set him up to see if he knew his scriptures...."
Oooo! Ooo! I had to go back and re-read that to see what else you guys are trying to set me up for!
Scott said... [in reference to Mark 4:29] "...Think of the absolute POWER of Jesus - who can change things on earth dramatically just with the spoken word..."
A number of years ago I wuz listening to a well respected Theologian, Christian college President/Dean[?], can't recall his name all of a sudden.. [They say that's one of the 1st of 3 things that start to go when you get older, and I can't remember what the other 2 are either...]
Anyway, where wuz I... Oh, yeah, he was commenting on this very same passage and he made this amazing statement that "Jesus got up, and in His Divinity, He spoke the words and calmed the wind and the sea..."
I was truly astounded by that scholar's understanding of Jesus!
Jesus, who had laid aside ALL attributes of Divinity as the **humble** servant of YHVH, and as the perfect **example** to us, did NOTHING of His own power, but did everything as a human being, perfectly submitted to and by the leading and power of the HS!
PS. Did I pass that one too??
ooooo n-i-c-e pass there. Might I add cool.
DrNofog "PS. Did I pass that one too??"
Yes dear;) unless you mean a kidney stone cuz it isn't mine??
Hugs to u two.
