Jesus answered them, ‘Beware that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, “I am the Messiah!” and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places: all this is but the beginning of the birth pangs. (Mathew 24: 4-8)
As I follow the news here in BA three major events came to my attention. The US has withdrawn troops from Syria under apparent agreement with Turkey — a NATO member nation — that they won’t harm the Christian population of Syria. As reported in Fox News this morning, the Turkish leader, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has already ordered the bombing of Kurdish populations boldly violating said agreement.
First order of the day: pray for all Syrian Christians. The American blunder may have exposed them to annihilation at the hands of the same nation that perpetrated the Armenian genocide of 1914-1918. Pray hard. Storm heaven for our brothers and sisters that have endured persecution since the 7th century A.D.
I have written before in this blog about the prophecies predicting the Russian invasion of Turkey from the East. Such an invasion would mark the beginning of unprecedented violence and chaos in the world.
We are under Our Lord’s command “not to be alarmed” at what he calls “the beginning of the birth pangs.” And talking about birth pangs … Life Site News reports that “… when Mass had ended and the Pope had processed from St. Peter’s Basilica, a group of women began to chant and sing unfurling a banner reading: ‘Synod on the Amazon: Listen to the cry of the Mother Earth and peoples and become a prophetic Church.’”
‘So when you see the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place, as was spoken of by the prophet Daniel … (Matthew 24:15-16)
The news from Vatican City seem to indicate that a sacrilegious abomination is standing there for everyone to see.
I would not be surprised, considering the various prophecies I have been studying for the last 20-25 years, that the Turks have been set up. They did not waste any time in attacking the Christian towns with genocidal fury. Russia may now enter Turkey to stop the Turks from attacking Syria. As prophesied, Russian troops may take Istanbul but NATO forces may also refuse to honor the mutual defense agreement with Turkey. Greece and other NATO forces may limit themselves to entering Turkey from the west to secure US nuclear silos and bases in Turkish territory. Greece may end up recovering its ancestral land, and Russia may end up controlling the coveted strait of the Dardanelles, the gate to the Black Sea. All of that has been prophesied at one time or another. What role may Syria and Israel play is still to be seen but we are most likely at the threshold of the “pangs of distress” for the whole world.
Please remember that there was a failed coup d’état in Turkey a few years ago that was followed by a purge of the high commanding officers in their armed forces. Many of the experienced Turkish military exiled after the coup may be counseling foreign countries now.
In the meanwhile: pray for our brothers and sisters in Syria and pray for our Church currently surrounded by this neo-pagan abomination. All’s well that ends well. In the end, the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and humanity will have peace. Be of good cheer, Our Lord has conquered the world.
Please join me in praying for our brethren in Syria.
