As Turkey continues to move toward an authoritarian state this remnant of the Ottoman Empire is rising at a very strategic time.
In my book, End Game, I detail the history of Turkey and their relationship to the Ottoman Empire, which was ousted from Palestine as a result of the Sinai and Palestine Campaign of 1918. Not surprisingly, this campaign occurred after the Balfour Declaration of 1917. Specifically, the Battle of Meggido, the final Allied offensive of the Campaign which solidified the removal of the Ottoman Empire and the takeover of Palestine.
This battle took place in the Plain of Armageddon or Meggido.
That name should sound familiar to you as the final Magog War, commonly referred to as Armageddon, will take place there.
I also explain Magog in the context of Ezekiel?s prophecy and the difference between the Magog of Revelation. But also that Turkey is a larger player in Ezekiel?s vision than mainstream Christianity has taught.
In short, Magog has a geographical, spiritual and organizational meaning. Magog would have been the region directly under the Black Sea during the time Ezekiel was prophesying. Bringing this into current day context, modern day Magog would be the region of Turkey.
It represents the spirit of the world or of Satan, whose seat of power during the vision to John on the Island of Patmos was said to be Pergamum, also located in Asia Minor, or modern day Turkey. This consortium or united nations begins regionally, a specific group mentioned, then grows to include every nation on earth for the final battle.
Why is this important?
Turkey is the Ottoman Empire, the people group that was ousted from Palestine in 1918 as a result of the Balfour Declaration. Both world wars had clear evidence of a crusade for Jerusalem. Their link and connection to removing the Ottoman Empire and placing Israel back in the Holy Land. It has been long suspected that Erdogan desires more authoritative power in order to restore the Ottoman Empire and bring Turkey to the forefront of geopolitics.
Rosh, who is mentioned in Ezekiel?s consortium, could be interpreted to be modern day Russia through the migration pattern of the descendants of Magog but Russia has been overemphasized in American Christianity due to the Cold War and ongoing tensions with the United States. This has made a resurgence in recent years through the current Russian Federation President, Vladimir Putin.
Turkey on the Rise
The recent timing of events is no coincidence.
We are in the heart of what I have been writing about for a few years now. This year we enter into the 100 year anniversary of the Balfour Declaration and next year the Battle of Meggido. This convergence of dates is not superfluous, as it speaks to generational completion and entering into a new era or season.
The coup attempt in Turkey last year and the recent referendum in Turkey giving Erdogan sweeping new Presidential powers all set up for a resurgence of the Ottoman Empire mindset in Turkey and its manifestation in the geopolitical arena. The motivation to invade Israel, at least for Turkey, would be to take back what was taken from the Ottoman Empire: Palestine.
As I detail in my book, the last true Sunni Islamic caliphate was the Ottoman Caliphate under the ottoman dynasty of the Ottoman Empire. The very existence of ISIL and their claim to the caliphate was a direct challenge to Turkey and a catalyst to set in motion what we are seeing today.
Where do we go from here?
What is happening in Syria, regardless of the chemical weapons controversy, is also no coincidence. It is likely just one of many catalysts which will bring about the consortium of Ezekiel?s prophecy in that region. Similar to how Hitler and the Holocaust were a catalyst for World War II, the Syrian civil war and emergence of ISIL are catalytic in nature.
Contrary to popular disbelief, we are in a very strategic time period, ripe for the fulfillment of this prophecy. Revolution and geopolitical tensions are growing globally, talk of world war, and that is no coincidence.
Given what has occurred I would not be surprised to see more revolution in Europe, specifically the election of Marine Le Pen and/or some other form of erosion in the Euro government and currency. Also, continued policy of protectionism and isolationism globally, a position pregnant with meaning as it precedes major movements which result in further globalization.
Blockchain and Cryptocurrency
Currency and global markets have undergone significant changes through these moments in history, such as the Bretton Woods agreement during WWII. These ?storms? leave behind a wake of change and ultimately push the ball forward towards central global governance. We are poised for another large paradigm shift, next through blockchain and cryptocurrency. A quiet revolution is taking place under the radar.
We are closer to a digital, cashless society than most are aware and I expect this next round of ?Crusade?, as Dwight Eisenhower put it, to finalize it.
The Ethereum Alliance with members such as JP Morgan, Microsoft and IBM see the coming shift for this new ledger technology. Also does the IMF, who just last week had their first high level blockchain meeting. (Source) I will share more about this technology later and expand on the chapter in my book, The Technology Gauge, but know that this is going to catch many by surprise.

The Shemitah of 2001 and 2008 were likely just birth pangs leading up to what we are about to step into, the birth and delivery of a new financial system.
This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 6 Day War and the Temple Institute?s secular Jubilee, which is correlated directly to the Balfour Declaration of 1917. In 2018 we will celebrate the 70th anniversary of Israel becoming an official nation.
In my new book, the Secret of the Seal, I will explain the origins of the Seal of Solomon and its occultic roots. How it was given to Solomon from his pagan wives and was worn as a signet ring. Also, the connection of the Rothschild family to the Balfour Declaration and the ?Great Crusade? of occult societies converging on Jerusalem, setting the stage for the revealing of the Antichrist in the Temple.
This will be no holds barred. I will uncover and expose deceptions of the enemy, even as it pertains to America, and I will speak truth that will cause you to wrestle with the present day reality that prayer and waging war in the heavenly realm is the only thing that will bring even a semblance of spiritual movement in the evil days ahead.
You are in and entering a different season, a new world, one that will require spiritual strength and an understanding of prayer over political tact.
So, get ready, because change is on the horizon. There is a spirit of confusion in our nation and a delusion in the Church, those placing false hope in man and man made systems. But you can rise above this and go against the grain. When the Lord is your vision, it is amazing what you will see.
Look around at the nations and be amazed, because God is doing something in your own day, something you wouldn?t believe… even if I told you.
