Terry James: Prophetic Signals with Historic Precedents

Romans 1:22-24 “22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves

Important Takeaways:

  • Worldwide Wickedness Against Children — A Prophetic Signal With Historic Precedent Of Impending Judgment
  • Israel is the number-one signal of where things stand when the Tribulation closes in and the triumphant return of Jesus Christ nears.
  • The proof of God being the play’s Author is His foreknowledge. He has said that Israel would be a nation again after its final diaspora (dispersion). As a matter of fact, His Word foretold that it would be reborn in a single day–which happened May 14, 1948.
  • Now, there are differing opinions on what other signals might be next in line beneath Israel. Here are some of the signals I think we will next be seeing:
    • Increase in wars and rumors of wars
    • Nations in alignment, as given in God’s Word—i.e., the Gog-Magog nations (Russia, Iran, Turkey, etc.)
    • Developments in the geopolitical world, such as the ten-kings developments found in Daniel, Luke, and other places; the EU as a reviving Roman Empire; and Daniel’s interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream image and the ten toes of iron mixed with miry clay
    • Religious apostasy, with the ecumenical movements, an apostate pope, and strange winds of doctrines that continue to assault true Christianity
    • And, along this line, the Antichrist spirit and all wickedness attendant to it (In fact, I’ve about concluded this might be the number-two signal, right beneath Israel.)[Crimes against Children]
      • [Daily Mail reports] Eleven people have appeared in court accused of taking part in a child sex ring which also allegedly involves witchcraft, serious violence and neglect.
      • Today, the murder of millions of babies in their mothers’ wombs makes our time like those days when the idol-god Moloch was used to burn children alive.
    • There seems nothing left to be done by Heaven’s governance than to institute God’s judgment and wrath.
    • That means the Rapture of the Church is even nearer than that seven years of hell on earth. Here is how to escape the judgment and wrath that is coming, perhaps very soon.

Agreements between Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the U.N. to restart food exports from Black Sea may not be enough to curb World Food Crisis

Revelations 18:23 ‘For the merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.’

Important Takeaways:

  • The world food crisis is about to get worse
  • Six months of fighting between Russia and Ukraine — two farming powerhouses — has plunged a teetering global food system into full-blown catastrophe, leaving millions of people facing starvation.
  • A U.N.-brokered agreement to reopen the Black Sea for food ships may not be enough to bring relief to the millions of people struggling to eat across Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
  • Drought is gripping the Horn of Africa, leaving some 26 million people facing food shortages in Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia over the next six months. More than 7 million livestock animals have already been wiped out. Across East Africa as a whole, some 50 million people are facing acute food insecurity.
  • In Lebanon, also a large importer of Russian and Ukrainian wheat, real food inflation has been running at 122 percent.

Ezekiel 38 is trending on Social media as Russia, Iran, and Turkey meet

Ezekiel 38:14-16 “Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: In that day, when my people Israel are living in safety, will you not take notice of it? You will come from your place in the far north, you and many nations with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mighty army. You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Are the Biblical End Times Upon Us? The Shocking Russia-Iran Moment That Just Caused Ezekiel 38 to Trend on Social Media
  • Embattled Russian President Vladimir Putin made what The Washington Post called a “rare international trip to Iran” this week as the Ukraine war drags on and tensions with the West continue to boil.
  • First and foremost, Russia and Iran are shunned by numerous nations, most notably the United States. These isolated countries share in that dynamic as well as in their quest for power.
  • It’s also impossible to ignore the fact Putin’s visit to Iran comes right after President Joe Biden visited Israel, a nation Iran has repeatedly threatened.
  • Pastor Greg Laurie, “Jesus in Matthew 24 gave us signs of the times — one of them was there’ll be wars and rumors of wars,” No. 2, there would be pestilence and plague, and if COVID is not a modern-day plague, I don’t know it is, and it’s affected the whole planet [and it] still affects us to this day.”
  • Author Joel Rosenberg is also among those who have vocally explored Old Testament prophecies about the biblical end of days… a few years ago he said “The Hebrew prophet Ezekiel wrote 2,500 years ago that in the ‘last days’ of history, Russia and Iran will form a military alliance to attack Israel from the north,” Rosenberg wrote. “Bible scholars refer to this eschatological conflict, described in Ezekiel 38–39, as the ‘War of Gog & Magog.’”

Putin Travels to Iran in high stakes talk with Turkish President Erdogan and Supreme Leader Khamenei

Revelations 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

Important Takeaways:

  • In Message to the West, Putin Visits Iran to Bolster Ties as War Rages on in Ukraine
  • Putin’s second trip abroad since Russia began its invasion of Ukraine
  • Putin is scheduled to hold talks with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

  • Although Turkey is a NATO member and has fought against Russia in previous conflicts, both sides see something to gain in the high-stakes talks in Iran.
  • Unlike other countries, Turkey has not imposed sanctions on Russia, making it a desperately needed potential partner for an increasingly isolated Moscow.
  • Meanwhile, Turkey is relying on the Russian market as it grapples with economic woes of its own. Additionally, Turkey has sought to help broker talks to end the war in Ukraine.
  • Iran is more open to talks with the Kremlin amid reports of an emerging US-backed Arab-Israeli alliance that could tip the balance of power in the Middle East away from Iran.

Turkey votes to clear Sweden and Finland to join NATO after they change stance on Kurdish rebels

Revelations 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

Important Takeaways:

  • NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced the deal on Tuesday evening ahead of President Joe Biden’s scheduled meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Turkey an Ally in name only: White House doesn’t seem to know they’re getting played

Revelations 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

Important Takeaways:

  • How The Biden Administration Is Getting Erdogan’s Moves All Wrong
  • After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, when every sane country is staying away from wiring even a few cents to Russia, NATO “ally” Turkey is still talking about buying a second S-400 system.
  • The West’s appeasement will just further embolden Erdogan to keep blackmailing it: If you do not sell me F-35s or F-16s, I will buy fighter jets from Russia. Erdogan then turns to Putin: I am your man in NATO. If you do not want me to be a real NATO ally, you must give me something. Erdogan’s double-play has to be stopped. For that, is needed a determined Western bloc who will remind him that he will not get what he wants from his (theoretical) allies in the West by blackmailing them.

NATO is being blackmailed by Erdogan

Revelations 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

Important Takeaways:

  • Why Erdoğan’s NATO Blackmail Is Subversion
  • Once again, Turkey is the odd one out in the NATO alliance.
  • Erdoğan said on May 13 that his country is “not favorable” toward Finland and Sweden joining NATO, indicating Turkey could use its membership in the Western military alliance to veto moves to admit the two countries.
  • Erdoğan explained his opposition by citing Sweden and other Scandinavian countries’ alleged support for Kurdish militants and others whom Turkey considers to be terrorists. That denunciation cannot be taken seriously. Erdoğan has the habit of calling anyone who is politically and religiously different from his own worldview a terrorist.
  • None of the examples of Russian appeasement of Turkey’s “Kurdish terrorists” is secret. Russia has been doing all it could for its Kurdish friends overtly, with Erdoğan completely silent. Now the same Erdoğan is blackmailing NATO by vetoing membership for two Western European countries on the grounds that these countries, threatened by Russia, are supporting Kurdish terrorists.

Important Takeaways:

  • ‘The stakes here are now massive’: Turkey is threatening to block NATO membership for Sweden and Finland

  • NATO ascension for a new member state requires consensus approval from all existing members.
  • Turkey, which joined the alliance in 1952, is a crucial player in NATO, boasting the second-largest military in the 30-member group after the United States.
