Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday that “Jerusalem is ‘The first of the two directions of prayer, the second of mosques, the third of sanctuaries’”
So what does that mean?
Its about reestablishing Jerusalem as the central focus since Jerusalem was “the first of the two directions of prayer”.
Muhammad the prophet of Islam redirected the Qibla (direction of prayer) from Jerusalem (the first direction of prayer) to Mecca. Jerusalem was initially the direction where all Muslims worshipped five times a day. But history reveals that the Islamic direction of prayer still remained where archeologists found mosques still facing Jerusalem. By 624 AD, all mosques were supposed to be facing Mecca and yet, it took 200 years for Islam to finally get their act in order? Jerusalem has always been at the core issue of struggle between Christendom and Islamdom.
And it seems that Turkey wants to re-direct Muslims towards Jerusalem, not for prayer but for something else. “All Muslims should visit Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” Erdogan said during a speech at the International Forum of Endowments for Jerusalem in Istanbul.
And its not only this, Erdogan added: “I consider Hamas’ new political document to be an important step both for the Palestinian issue and for the reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah”.
The new document no longer pledges Israel’s destruction (so they claim), and accepts a Palestinian state along the borders set before Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. Indeed, Erdogan wants to divide the land for gain.
And yes, its time to tell you ‘we told you so’, last year we predicted it:
this red-dragon eyes Jerusalem as the “apple of the eye of every Muslim” as Erdogan once put it … Soon you will see him sending and opening the flood gates of Muslim pilgrims to Jerusalem (Revelation 12, as we have seen in Europe) making Jerusalem an extension of the Haj they call Umra.
An antichrist is a spewer of floods and Jerusalem’s destiny will be with a flood. Even Hamas recognizing Israel we predicted six years ago which we outlined here in detail.
So this Sunday Special we will also predict how a divided church will have one side (the one that divided) fully cooperate with the Antichrist as etched in scripture. That divide which claimed to love scripture will end up aiding the evil one. These are biblical prophecies no one these days is paying any attention to where the first church paid full attention and warned us it will happen way ahead of time.
Last year we also predicted:
In the near future we will see Muslim demand to allow them entry to Jerusalem from all around the world. While Israel welcomes this economically the repercussions will only be known, we predict, when they create havoc in the city.
We also predicted this:
Having bettered relations with Israel and Russia to restore stability in the region, Turkey is now even eyeing reconciliation with Egypt should the coup government in Cairo seize the opportunity for a thaw with Ankara.
Erdogan also wants to be “wiser than Daniel” by duping Al-Sisi to save the Muslim Brotherhood leadership from execution and will become Islam’s version of the biblical prophet Daniel (see Daniel 2:14), that when Al-Sisi, the commander of Egypt, had gone out to put to death the wise men of Egypt (the Muslim Brotherhood), Erdogan “spoke to him with wisdom and tact” after successfully interpreting Al-Sisi’s dream wanting to be recognized as Pharaoh of Egypt …
The king of the North (Turkey) will sit with the King of the south (Egypt) and will deceive each other while both devise evil plans.
And while the novice speculates on a coming New World Order, we warned about a new Muslim world order. We also warned last year that:
“What Caliph Al-Baghdadi wanted to gain through terrorism, Erdogan of Turkey was able to gain ‘by peace’ where he is “deceiving many”. Erdogan is also now leading the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (O.I.C) considered to be the Muslim ‘U.N’ coming second to the United Nations in size and global power. But thats not all. As this happens, the cunning Erdogan was able to woo Saudi Arabia to arrange the Turkey-Egypt talks setting the framework for a peace deal between Turkey and Egypt to be finalized before April where Al-Sisi hands over the leadership of the O.I.C to Erdogan. Keep in mind, that the O.I.C represents the association of 56 Islamic states promoting Muslim solidarity in economic, social, and political affairs. But the devil is not wiser than Daniel who tells us: “And after the league is made with him he shall act deceitfully, for he shall come up and become strong with a small number of people.” (Daniel 11:23)
This “league” is a united Muslim states and the O.I.C plays a major role in this affair. Remember the Scriptures: “Cush, and Put, and Lud [Turkey], and all Arabia, and Libya, and the people of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.” (Ezekiel 30:5)
Don’t say that we never told you so, way ahead of time, that you may consider the state of your spiritual affairs by becoming one of the five virgins with oil in their lamps before the coming of the Bridegroom.”
And a league it is. Just as we stated will happen is happening. Erdogan lately traveled all over to create such a league. From Saudi Iranian relations to expressing concern at the stand-off between India and Pakistan on Kashmir, Erdogan offered to get involved in settling many issues to bring this unity together.
Erdogan wants to settle the continuing unrest in Kashmir and the stalling of India-Pakistan diplomatic contacts. Erdogan now offers the OIC’s references to self-determination as a means to resolving differences over Kashmir and other crises such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, the Palestinian problem, Iraq, Syria, the Kurdish issue, the Tibet, Taiwan all the way to Balochistan.
Erdogan said that the OIC is the answer:
“It (OIC) has its area of influence. It has economic and political strengths, it has a say in global matters and it can contribute to world peace. If something has been approved by all member-states, it should not be criticised or questioned. OIC members also have weight in the United Nations. Turkey supports India to become a permanent member of the UN Security Council.”
“I visited India in 2008 as the Prime Minister of Turkey. Since then, India has emerged even stronger: it is respected by all. For its part, Turkey’s voice is easily heard all over the world. My visit will deepen Turkey-India relations,” he said.
And of course, India is a nuclear nation and spiritually it has fed Sufi Islam where Hindu and Muslim will seek alliances where devil will not divide with devil.
But by flattery and offers of peace he is deceiving many:
“We are not against any faith. We protect synagogues or churches from possible terror attacks but the West needs to reciprocate but it is not doing so.”
Erdogan wants to unite all religion into a syncretist reality.
Making a league involves much work which you will see coming on its way in the years to come. Turkey’s president today (Wednesday) has even called on all Muslim countries around the world to build efficient transportation networks in order to accelerate integration among themselves. “Reinforcing our cooperation in the field of transport – one of the six areas covered under the COMCEC Strategy – is important for facilitating trade between our member countries and accelerating integration,” said Recep Tayyip Erdogan in his opening statement at the 33rd meeting of the Standing Committee for Economic and Commercial Cooperation (COMCEC) of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Ankara.
But we at Shoebat.com see the writing on the wall. Erdogan is on a quest to becoming anointed as the leader of all Muslims and relations between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are strained since Islamabad turned down Saudi requests to contribute soldiers for the war against the Shiites (Shiite Houthis in Yemen and Iran). So to placate their prostitute, Saudi Arabia, The decision of the Pakistan was to lead a NATO-styled 39-nation Islamic Military Alliance which was the brain child of the Saudi government. Arabia, the prostitute, has become jittery over Shiite rebellions within its kingdom, plus Iran threatens her daily with the broom of mass destruction.
So now Erdogan is presenting Turkey as the defender of Islam replacing the Saudi role whose economy is under the weather due to the US discovery of shale oil.
In his last speech to more than 30 leaders — with the notable absentees; the king of the south, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Jordan’s King Abdullah, who are critical of Turkey’s role in the Middle East — Erdogan pointed to the urgent need to surmount sectarianism among Islamic countries.
“My religion is not that of Sunnis, of Shiites. My religion is Islam,” Erdogan said.
Erdogan, a Sufi Muslim, cares less about the Shiite Sunni divide (exactly as we predicted he will do) and will ally with Iran just as we said for decades.
Erdogan even included in the last summit the Saudi King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
But Erdogan will eventually have to take a side in the sectarian divisions. Iran lashed out at Saudi Arabia for executing prominent cleric Nimr al-Nimr while Iran was condemned for interfering in its neighbor’s affairs in supporting terrorist groups.
We predict that he will ally with Iran and toss the whore to oblivion.
To the Muslims now Turkey withstood the Christian West and sees Erdogan as the bringer of the Sunni world for a new alliance, the alliance few read about etched in several chapters of their bibles between Ezekiel 28 all the way to Ezekiel 39. Eleven chapters ignored by the so-called Bible Prophecy enthusiasts is a call for alarm to anyone who follows them.
Blasting the West is now Erdogan’s obsession for he will declare war on the strongest fortresses.
“If we don’t act, others do. But when they do, they do so for the sake of the oil there, not to bring harmony among us,” he added, calling for an Islamic arbitration organization and an Islamic version of Interpol to be established in Istanbul.
Erdogan also brought up another of his pet topics and railed at the composition of the United Nations Security Council, where he said there is not one permanent member to represent the Islamic world.
“It is essential for the UN to be reformed. It is our right to expect this if we want a just world,” Erdogan said. “It is not possible for a system that is based on injustice to contribute to global justice.”
Erdogan’s words to the OIC, whose presidency Turkey is taking over for two years is declaring its leadership of the Islamic world setting up the stage for Ezekiel 28 all the way to Ezekiel 39 to be fulfilled.
The ill informed isolates Ezekiel 38 while the fully informed reads the whole context of the entire book.
The way you know the end is near is when you see that one Turk call for the dance of peace, and when the rest follows, war is on the horizon, not peace:
