No, It was True

On July 15th, a coup was launched by the heads of the Turkish military. By the next day, the attempted coup d’etat had failed. Last week I said that this coup was ‘designed to fail’.

I was wrong.

The coup was real.

Erdogan survived because he understood the battleground better than the generals did, and had better reflexes than the generals. And, Erdogan had been planning for this for years.

This was a real coup, with a real attempt at turning Turkey back towards the secularist values of Kemal Ataturk. The failure of this coup places another important piece into the puzzle of Ezekiel’s Fire.

No, It was True

The events of July 15th will eventually shake the world. The failure of the coup d’etat, to take down Erdogan will be remembered as a turning point in the future of the Middle East, and the world. It will also place yet another piece of the puzzle that we have been struggling with for more than two thousand years:

The coming of Gog and Magog

I’ve been writing about the coming of Gog and Magog for a while, and when I saw how Ezekiel 38 and 39, Isaiah 30 and Zechariah 12 fit together… I knew that the coming of this vast army was more than just ‘another war’ in the Middle East.

The fire that God will rain down upon the world will probably kill a billion people. If we are lucky, only a few hundred million will die. At the very best, it will be the biggest catastrophe that the world has ever seen, since the flood.

That’s why the coup in Turkey is so significant. It removes Turkey as an obstacle to Gog and Magog, and makes her an ally to Gog. That’s huge.

Why The Coup D’Etat Was Real

But, let me lay out the reasons for why this coup was real:

Delicate Operations

Here is the proof that has finally convinced me:

Especially interesting is that only hours after the start of the putsch in Turkey, rumors began to spread that Recep Tayyip Erdogan is frightened, fleeing or had already fled to Berlin, Paris, London and others. This is a classic technique to discredit the national leader in front of people and to disillusion his supporters. Absolutely the same formula was applied in the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt. At the outset reports came out that he had fled abroad with his family. This is the same handwriting that the organization of the coup came from outside. There’s hardly anyone left that believes in the spontaneity of the Arab Spring. And there is hardly a sane person who would believe that Recep Erdogan himself spread these rumors. Just a classic stereotype to discredit a leader.

If Erdogan had been running this coup, he would NOT have said that.

Another element to the Turkish coup that leads me to believe that this really was a real coup, but with NATO involvement. If this is the case, and there’s no reason for it not to be, this will drive Turkey firmly into the arms of Russia.

You can find those two articles in the research section, below. But, you won’t find this:

In fact, there were two moments where Erdogan cheated death. He escaped minutes before the assassination team got to his hotel. The F-16 tasked with downing Erdogan’s plane, didn’t get in range fast enough.

Too many factors point to this coup being real.

How Erdogan Survived

The question is…

How did Erdogan survive?

Hitler survived a massive number of attempts on his own life, and I’m wondering if the same demonic forces were involved in keeping Erdogan alive. Of course, God might have wanted Erdogan to live, to act as a hook in the jaws of Gog.

And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

Ezekiel 38:4

Ouch. That has GOT to hurt. And, Gog won’t have any choice but to come down and attack Israel.

Let’s also not forget that the Russians might have given Erdogan warning of what was going to happen – enough warning, to keep the Porcine President alive. You can bet that Erdogan will express his appreciation to Putin in four days, when they meet in St. Petersburg, on August 9th.


Since it appears that NATO was supportive of this coup attempt, you can bet that Putin will offer ways for Erdogan to leave NATO and join Russia’s EurAsian alliance. I am sure that Erdogan will be VERY appreciative. In fact, if Erdogan wants to survive, he will need to embrace Russia’s help. It will be bromance or death – for Turkey’s own Dear Leader.

How quickly events will move forward after this August 9th meeting, will be anybody’s guess. To my limited understanding, there is little chance that Gog and Magog could happen in 2017. Of course, ‘little chance’ is not ‘no chance’. A lot could happen between now and next summer.

The logistical challenges for an alliance as big as Gog and Magog are immense. Getting those ironed out would take time. Furthermore, we don’t have all the players, yet. Third, we don’t quite have all the hooks in the jaws of Gog, yet.

But, the fact that many of them are there, cannot be denied.

The July 15 coup in Turkey was real.

The implications are beyond huge.


Oh, and one more thing. TL2 left an awesome comment in last week’s article. I was very impressed by it, and I wanted to share it with you.

The Belizeans are interested in the goings on in Europe due to its connections with the various European countries such as Spain, the Netherlands and most recently, Britain. Indeed, Belize has only gained its independence from Britain merely 30+ years ago, and is thriving.

The US is no friend to Belize. Thee government has and is still trying to force the small Caribbean nation to change its current laws on homosexuality, which at the moment does not favor the practice. Just last month alone, the US embassy in Belmopan, Belize’s government seat, had the incredible audacity to fly the g-y flag high overhead, in defiance. Two years ago, a cruise ship was turned away because there was a possible Ebola case on board. The U.S. government was pressuring Belize to accept the patient. Belize, in spite of its pushing forward to make itself a developed country, did not have the ability to take in such a patient. I had an opportunity to visit the hospital where the patient would have gone. I can assure you, my witness bears much truth. As a result, the US has been smearing Belize with all kinds of negative reporting. There are other shenanigans going on to try to manipulate the Belizean government to capitulate to the whims of Washington, but the current government seems is holding steady.

Belize has, historically, been a place of refuge for people and people groups, such as Guatemalans and San Salvadorians fleeing their respective oppressive governments. Guatemala is once again threatening its indigenous population. Many Belizeans sincerely foresee their country once again taking such a role. Curious, the Mexican government has recently considered putting up a border wall between its border and the Guatemalan and Belizean borders. This is to keep out the latter people groups. Except the most ruthless gang activity is in Mexico. I can’t help but wonder if the border is actually to keep people out, or to prevent people from leaving the U.S., Canada and Mexico via the blockade.

Belize has its faults, but I believe it also has a destiny to fulfill, and needs much prayer. Here is the Belizean National Prayer, and in its constitution, it identifies itself as a Christian nation.

I’m afraid that I did NOT get TL2’s permission to put this here, in the article section. I’m operating under the idea that she doesn’t mind that I share this.

(Let me know if you don’t want this so publicly profiled, TL2.)

I put this here as a point in favor of Belize as a possible place of refuge, an opportunity to serve God, or both. The idea that Belize is being battered and bruised by America makes my blood boil. The fact that Belize is a God-fearing nation that wishes to be more Christ-like makes me feel wonderful. The idea that TL2 can share this with us… is a blessing.

God bless you, TL2!
