We Could See the Start of the Tribulation As Early As This Year?
SHOCKING AND AMAZING: Erdogan Has Now Declared Himself To Be GOD – Walid Shoebat
Erdogan is hailed, not only as “prophet” or “healer” only, but as one who can change the laws of the universe:
“Spring has come to Sanliurfa. Both nature and history are rising up to greet our prime minister,” says Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek on Erdogan’s visit to the southeastern province of Sanliurfa on March 9th. Yet the Finance Minister did not face any sanctions from Erdogan for declaration of divinity and neither did AKP lawmaker Fevai Aslan who on January 16th when he said: “Erdogan is a leader who gathers all of Allah’s qualities in himself”. Neither did the Deputy Health Minister Agah Kafkas was reprimanded when on May 19, 2013 he said: “To do what Erdogan does is sunna”. “Sunna” which the Deputy Health Minister was referring to is the obedience to Muhammad. In other words, to obey Erdogan is to obey the Prophet himself! And neither was AKP lawmaker Huseyin Sahin on July 20, 2011 was reprimanded by Erdogan for saying: “Believe me, even touching our prime minister is worship to me.”
These are major figures and Erdogan as if he is Christ who did not denounce worshiping Him, Erdogan did not denounce worship either. And if one thinks that it’s only the followers who elevate Erdogan to prophet, healer, master of the universe and nature, or deity, think again. Just last week media from Istanbul, wrote this regarding Edrogan himself, firing anyone who denounces him being God:
“Turkey’s Religious Affairs Directorate fired an imam who is highly regarded as a hafiz — a person who has memorized the entire Quran — in İzmir on Feb. 23 because of posts on Facebook criticizing President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s use of religious terminology to praise himself. The imam, who asks that his name not be revealed because of the judicial process he has started against the directorate, told Today’s Zaman that directorate inspectors started an investigation against him when İzmir Mufti’s Office filed a complaint in May of last year regarding posts the imam had written, arguing that language used by Erdoğan and his followers goes against the principles of İslam. The anonymous imam insisted that it is a duty of religious officials to warn people when their behavior, attitude and language contradict religious mandates. In a speech in March of last year that many theologians found to be problematic, then-Prime Minister Erdoğan said, “Our mercy will prevail over our wrath,” to a crowd in Muğla province, using terminology from a hadith qudsi (sacred hadith), a category of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad which are attributed to God. The hadith qudsi in question states: “When God decreed the Creation, He pledged Himself by writing in His book which is laid down with Him: My mercy prevails over my wrath.”
In other words, Erdogan Islamically proclaims himself as Allah. The statement “Our mercy will prevail over our wrath” in Islam only pertains to Allah himself.
Zaman News States:
In a recent interview with Israeli television, Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç said it would be a positive thing for Israel to pick Turkey as a partner, if it wants to start afresh with Turkey. He also said teaming up with Turkey would be good for Israel’s security. Following Arınç’s remarks, Turkey’s Tel Aviv charge d’affaires Doğan Işık said Turkey and Israel are like two brotherly states and cannot be separated, despite the state of sour political relations between the two countries, in a meeting this weekend.
Işık recalled that there are eight daily flights from Tel Aviv to İstanbul and that all flights between Israel and the US and China to the US feature a stopover in İstanbul. A source from the Turkish Foreign Ministry speaking to Today’s Zaman said on Monday that “without a doubt, such a statement [sending a positive message to Israel] can only be made with the knowledge of Ankara.”
It was also learned by Today’s Zaman that Deputy Foreign Ministry Naci Koru has recently extended a message to the Israeli officials through diplomatic channels that Turkey wants to start afresh with Israel. Koru stated in his message to Israel that Turkey is ready to discuss normalizing relations with Israel. The same source from the Foreign Ministry pointed out that clearly Turkey is sending positive messages to Israel. —Today’s Zaman/Shoebat.Com
Will the peace treaty be a seven year agreement, if one is signed at all?
This is definitely something worth keeping an eye on! For all the details, please see the video below:
Muslims praise key Mideast leader ‘like God’ – Facts on Turkey
Other reports continue to pop up in Middle East publications that Turkey’s leader, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is seen within his ruling AK Party as more than just a president.
Consider the following reports out of Turkey:
- A billboard has appeared in the Gölbaşı district of Adıyaman province inviting people to attend a “holy birthday” event to celebrate Erdoğan’s birthday. The negative reaction this billboard received on social media stems from the fact that such an event is usually held to celebrate the birth of the Prophet Muhammad. The billboard was an invitation to “a program of unity and togetherness organized on the occasion of the birthday of our president.” The event was organized by the Gölbaşı Municipality, reported Today’s Zaman, a secular Turkish newspaper. No government officials or supporters have objected to the billboard or the statements.
- AK Party Bursa deputy Hüseyin Şahin said touching Erdoğan is a form of prayer, while AK Party Düzce deputy Fevai Arslan said Erdoğan has “all the attributes” of God.
- Last year during a political rally, as a woman fainted, Erdogan gestured to the crowd to carry the woman up to the platform, where he touched her, causing her to shake out of her spell, shouting, “Allah Akbar!” The headline at Vocativ.com read: “Prime Minister ‘heals’ sick woman on campaign trail.”
A March 30 article for Al Monitor by columnist Mustafa Akyol notes that devotion to Erdogan or “Erdoganism” is “morphing into an ideology unto itself, disillusioning veterans of Turkey’s Islamist movement.”
Akyol, whose articles also appear in the International New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Turkish Hurriyet Daily News, wrote:
“Pro-Erdogan propaganda, to which almost half the Turkish media is now fully devoted, has taken the shape of a cult of personality, which is also not a typical Islamist phenomenon.
A recent book, ‘Recep Tayyip Erdogan: The Sun of the Age,’ proudly refers to him as ‘an idol for our youth,’ which would sound bizarre, if not heretical, to the average Islamist. In 2011, an AKP deputy declared, ‘Even touching Erdogan is a form of worship,’ and in 2014 another AKP deputy proclaimed that Erdogan ‘carries all the attributes of Allah in himself.’ Such views, heretical from a traditional Islamic perspective, were criticized and ridiculed by Erdogan’s opponents, but he conspicuously said nothing.”
Voice crying in the wilderness
Joel Richardson, author of “The Islamic Antichrist” and director of the documentary film “End Times Eyewitness,” does not believe Erdogan is the Antichrist. But he has been warning for years that something is going on in Turkey worth watching, and that this country of 78 million people and home to the region’s largest army could ultimately be more dangerous than ISIS or even Iran. In short, it is fertile ground for an antichrist figure to rise up and lead a large portion of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims.
It should be remembered that the death toll caused by ISIS, which has shocked the world with its brutality toward Christians and other religious minorities, is still miniscule compared to the genocidal feats of the Ottoman Empire, which slaughtered 1.5 million Armenian Christians and another million or so Greek Orthodox, Syriac Orthodox and Protestant Christians. The 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide is being commemorated on April 24.
More than four years ago, while being interviewed for Glenn Beck’s documentary, “Rumors of War Part 2,” Richardson made the statement that in Erdogan, “We have the modern-day Adolf Hitler of the Middle East emerging right before our eyes.”
This seemed like an extreme statement to make at the time. But in light of recent developments, Richardson’s assessment of Erdogan now appears less controversial.
“He is a megalomaniacal dictator of the worst stripe, in a nation where nationalism is a religion, and that celebrates excessive exalted leadership like their Sultans of the past,” Richardson told WND.
It is nearly impossible for most Americans to grasp the degree of nationalism that exists in Turkey, he said.
That’s why he tried to provide a taste of the leader-worship during a rally he filmed for “End Times Eyewitness.”
Richardson gives viewers of this documentary a front-row seat at an AKP rally in which a sea of adoring fans wave flags and chant songs to exult their leader, Erdogan.
“When we look back at the Nazi rallies, we recoil at the way Germans had an almost religious devotion to their nation and to their leader, Adolf Hitler,” Richardson says. “Although there is a strong contingency of those who do not support Erdogan in Turkey, for those of the AK party who do, their support for him is nearly religious.”
Man of the hour?
Not only is Erdogan the embodiment of Turkish success over the past decade, but more importantly, he is the embodiment of Turkey’s future aspirations, specifically at a time when many Muslims believe Islam is rising up to take its rightful place in the world.
It remains to be seen whether Erdogan’s god-like appeal among his own party in Turkey will translate beyond his borders. Right now he is just one of several international Muslim leaders competing for influence among the wider “uma” of Muslim believers. Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the leaver of the ISIS caliphate, would surely have something to say about who leads the restored Ottoman Empire.
“As so much of the Muslim world now believes that we are on the very cusp of the messianic age or the age of the Mahdi, Erdogan is looked to (by his followers) as the chosen one, poised to lead the Turks into a position of exalted leadership over the Islamic community, and thus the world,” Richardson said. “In the eyes of many religious Turks, Erdogan is the one who will forever enshrine the Turkish people as divinely ones, the race called by Allah to lead the world.”
Some Christian prophecy watchers, such as Walid Shoebat, believe Erdogan is essentially claiming to be God by not rebuking those who have anointed him with such lofty status.
Richardson doesn’t go this far.
“This isn’t really true, although he is most certainly pushing the boundaries of orthodox Islam and upsetting some imams in the process,” he said. “In the same way that President Obama imbibed upon and played up the messianic devotion that swirled around him during his candidacy, so also is Erdogan playing the Mahdi card.”
The similarities between Nazi Germany and present-day Turkey can be seen in numerous ways.
Recently CNN reported on the 26th March 2015, a court in Turkey sentenced two cartoonists to 11 months and 20 days in prison for insulting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Soon after, the court changed the jail sentence to a fine of7,000 Turkish lira or about $2,700 each.
Cartoonists Bahadir Baruter and Ozer Aydogan draw for the weekly satirical magazine Penguen. Founded in 2002 with a weekly average of 65,000 readers, the irreverent comic book — similar in many ways to the French magazine Charlie Hebdo — regularly skewers Turkish politicians.
In a statement to the press, the Penguen team explained that a citizen who described himself as an Erdogan supporter “sent an email to the Prime Ministry Information Center. … According to the notice, the employee (in the cartoon) ‘made the gay signal with his fingers.’ “
Turkey’s public prosecutor eventually launched an investigation, claiming that both the speech bubbles and the “hand drawing” insulted Erdogan.
It is plainly evident in the philosophy of Turkey’s prime minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, who is the architect of the Islamist party of Turkey’s rise to success over the past decade.
In his 2001 book, “Strategic Depth,” Davutoglu draws upon the political philosophy of German Karl Haushofer, who popularized the idea of Lebensraum, or living space, a phrase employed by Germany during the 1920s and 1930s to emphasize the need to expand its borders into Austria, Poland, Czechoslovakia and beyond.
Davutoglu believes the nations established after the breakup of the Ottoman Empire are artificial Western creations.
“Turkey must reclaim these nations in order to carve out its own Lebensraum – a phrase he uses unapologetically throughout his book,” Richardson said. “Davutoglu argues that reclaiming the nations that comprise the former Ottoman Empire is an act of saving them. He believes it would bring about the cultural and economic unification of the Islamic world, which Turkey will lead into the messianic era.”
And every messianic era needs a messiah.
“In the imagination of many Turks, Erdogan is the man to fill this role,” Richardson said.
“In the years ahead, the world must keep its eyes on the profoundly dangerous combination of Islamism and messianic nationalism that has arisen in Turkey,” he said. “Never before have we seen a moment where so many dangerous trends are all emerging at the same time.”
SHOCKING AND AMAZING: Erdogan Has Now Declared Himself To Be GOD – Walid Shoebat
A billboard last month was erected for Erdogan’s birthday, February 26, in the Gölbaşı district of adıyaman province inviting people to attend a “holy birthday” event to celebrate the birthday of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, except this celebration is not attributing the festivity for Erdogan as mere man, but as a prophet.
“Among the activities planned for the event — scheduled for 7 p.m. on Feb. 26 — are a religious talk from theologian Ömer Döngeloğlu; a concert of hymns (known as ilahi [my God] praising God and extolling the characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad) by Recep Aslan and Bilal Göregen; and a sema performance (whirling dervishes).”
“Religious talks, hymns and sema performances like those planned for the president’s birthday are common to religious celebrations held in honor of the Prophet Muhammad’s birth.”
This is not treating Erdogan as mere man, but prophet. Whirling dervishes is not just Turkish art, but the process of Fana, on how one can become God.
At the same time Reuters along with other media outlets like CNN reported a power outage on the 31st March 2015
A major power outage hit Turkish cities and provinces on Tuesday, including the capital Ankara and Istanbul, where parts of the metro system shut down for several hours and shopping malls were plunged into darkness.
Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said all possible causes of the outage were being investigated and did not rule out sabotage, but said trouble with transmission lines was the most likely reason for the problem.
People carrying jerry cans queued at petrol stations to buy fuel for generators as the power cut dragged on for more than four hours. Road junctions were clogged as traffic lights went out.
“This is not an incident that we see frequently,” Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said during a trip to Bratislava, in comments broadcast on Turkish television.
Yildiz later said around 90 percent of Istanbul’s power supply had been restored and that the rest of the country would follow soon.
By afternoon, the energy ministry said that, as a result of repair work so far, there were almost no areas left without electricity in the major regions of Thrace, the Black Sea and Eastern Anatolia regions.
Turkey’s sole oil refiner, Tupras, said its production was not affected. Airports operator TAV said operations were normal at major airports, including Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir.
Broadcaster NTV said power cuts were reported in more than 40 of Turkey’s 81 provinces. The power transmission company TEIAS could not immediately be reached.
Yildiz said power was cut to many regions at 10:36 am (0736 GMT), apparently due to a problem with transmission lines. He said a government crisis center had been set up.
Turkey’s electricity consumption has risen strongly in recent years, thanks to robust economic growth and a rising population. It has been forced to ramp up energy investments and imports of natural gas, its biggest source for power generation.
Such widespread power outages are rare. Energy officials quoted by the newspaper Hurriyet said it was Turkey’s biggest blackout in 15 years.
