(Revelation 13:4b) “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?”
On the Israel Unwired website yesterday a headline read; “Massive Muslim Migrant Crisis Happening Right Now on Europe’s Border.” The article went on to say; “Turkey is systematically encouraging and assisting tens of thousands of refugees and migrants to illegally enter Greece, the gateway into Europe. The Turkish authorities are taking an active role in bringing the migrants to the border and pushing them to enter Europe, via Greece.
Turkish leader Erdogan has demanded that Europe shoulder more of the burden of caring for refugees. However, the EU insists that it is already assisting Turkey with the billions in refugee aid that was agreed to back in a 2016 deal made between the EU and Turkey. In reaction to the Turkish manufactured migrant crisis on the Greek border, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz accused Turkey of carrying out an “organized attack on Greece.” “A week ago we didn’t have a humanitarian crisis in Greece, no crisis on the Turkish-Greek border and also none in Turkey,” he told Germany’s Funke media group. “This is a planned and targeted attack, directed and organized by the state. Europe must not give in to this pressure.”
Since Greece has been stopping the migrants at the land border, Turkey began directing the migrants to go via sea to enter the Greek islands. The Greek coast guard is now on alert as well at sea. They reported that 59 migrants succeeded in entering the country’s islands on Friday.
In Bible prophecy “beasts” represent empires while “horns” represent their kings or rulers. The Apostle John tells us that this end-time empire that will ultimately be headed up by the Antichrist is an empire that fights a war in such a way that nations will be hard-pressed to handle it. There is no doubt that Islam is that beast empire. In the Bible virtually all of the nations mentioned in connection with Bible prophecy are all Islamic today. The Western nations and I might add Israel and Christendom, is at war with Islam.
The ‘refugees’ at the border separating Turkey from Greece are mainly young men if you look carefully at the videos. When viewing the film footage there are women and children among them but predominantly it seems that multitudes of these ‘refugees’ are young men and I am sure many of them are Jihadists that are seeking to infiltrate Europe for the Islamic cause. Islam is fighting a war of stealth that is going under the radar of Europe.
Who can make war against such a beast empire? Islam engages in urban warfare. Islam fights behind women and children and uses schools and even hospital buildings to set up their command posts and especially infiltrate such refugee migrations into Europe as we are seeing at the border separating Turkey from Greece.
As yet the man from Turkey is not ready to engage in an all-out Jihad so by stealth and subterfuge he is assembling a Trojan horse in the heart of Europe. Ultimately under the banner of a resurrected Turkish Ottoman Empire he wants to raise an army of Islam unparalleled in past history. The apostle John tells us that this end-time army is for the most part a Middle-eastern army that comes across the Euphrates River and numbers 200 million in strength. (Revelation 9:15-19)
Today there are millions of Muslims ensconced on European soil. Erdogan’s false public announcement that the Greek border was open to migration from Turkey was only pretence to care for the humanity crisis while masking his true intentions for Europe. These ‘refugees’ he sees as another step towards forming the beast empire of the Turkish Ottoman Caliphate in Europe. It is a quest to see western democracy, Israel and Christianity wiped off of the map if the truth be known.
The Man from Turkey has his sights set on the resurrection of the Turkish Ottoman Caliphate which was in power for over 600 years spreading throughout the Middle-East, into much of Africa and even into parts of Europe when Islam was at the height of its power. Historically it was the Turkish Ottoman Empire that finally toppled the Roman Empire. Prophetically and historically the fourth beast empire mentioned by Daniel the prophet was not Rome but Islam.
Islam is already at war with the West. Jihad minded militants will come out of ‘the belly’ of the Islamic ‘Trojan Horse’ in Europe and open the gates for the Islamic invasion of much of the European continent. Having said these things we must also keep in mind that multitudes of Muslims today around the globe are coming to faith in the Lord Jesus and being saved by His power and leaving Islam and many at the cost of being killed as apostates from Islam. The power of Islam will be broken irretrievably and will not win in the end! The gates of Hades will never prevail against the faithful Church! (Matthew 16:18)
Who really knows how many faithful Bible believing followers of the Lord Jesus are in Muslim countries today? Brothers and sisters, a day is coming when the Islamic Antichrist and the armies of Islam will be completely destroyed at the command of the Rider on the White Horse our Lord Jesus the Anointed Messiah.
As the beloved Apostle John writes; “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With Justice He judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on His head are many crowns. He has a name written on Him that no one knows but He Himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following Him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of His mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron sceptre.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On His robe and on His thigh He has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelation 19:11-16)
If you have been saved by the blood of the Messiah and clothed with His righteousness you will be there with Him and with redeemed Israel at this final battle that will see the demise of the Antichrist and his armies and the inauguration of the Messianic Kingdom on earth. (Revelation 19:6-21; 20:1-6) Indeed on that day the Lord Jesus will be KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS and it will not be open for debate!
