The Islamic radical Turkish leader is in a fight for his political life

JD: Ken we often focus on Turkey and Tayyip Erdogan who is the President of Turkey he has an upcoming election June I think the 24th of this month. I’ve got to ask you, he seems like he’s in a fight for his political life the race is really tightening up, what do you know?

KT: Well Bloomberg did a survey, the first one by a western news agency inside Turkey recently. It showed Erdogan with just over 50%, 50.8% I think and his nearest competitor was 30%. There were four of them I believe running. And what happens if one person does not get a clear 50% majority in the first round? There will be a second round and then there will just be two competitors and I think Erdogan will clearly win that one with a large number perhaps 70% or 75% of the vote. So, I don’t think he’s really endangered.

Where it becomes more interesting is in the Parliament because there are different blocks in Parliament. In addition to his AK party there’s a Nationalist party, there’s a pro-Kurdish party, and then there’s sort of a Liberal party as well. And Erdogan needs to forge a majority, he can do so easily according to this latest opinion poll just by uniting the votes of his own party and the Nationalist Turkish party. And frankly I would call this a step towards fascism. Turkey is clearly on the road towards Islam fascism as a state as state policy and I think that was Erdgoan’s intent in calling these elections it was to solidify his base to solidify coalition and to get by in from in particular the Nationalist party to his agenda which is anti-American, anti-Kurdish for sure, from time to time pro-Iranian, and very definitely anti-Israel.

JD: Yeah and wanting to revive the Old Ottoman Empire.

KT:  And for he himself to become the new caliph absolutely.

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details on the upcoming election in Turkey.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

As Ken Timmerman told us Tayyip Erdogan President of Turkey called an early election for President for the purpose of giving himself more power, absolute power in fact. Tayyip Erdogan wants to revive the Old Ottoman Empire which was an Islamic caliphate an Islamic kingdom. If he gets the vote in the upcoming election Erdogan could become the new caliph the pan Islamic leader of the Islamic world. This scenario actually fits into the prophetic scenario for the last days as found in Ezekiel 38:2 & 6. This is where the prophet reveals that Turkey is a major power in the alignment of nations that will rise up to destroy Israel.

It's being reported that we are in a post-Biblical era in Christianity

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: We are now in a post Biblical era of Christianity. What does that mean David and do you think this is an important issue?

DJ: I think it’s a very important issue and I think it’s an important point made in that article. When we talk about post Biblical era of Christianity it’s also tied to what is philosophically called post modernism and it simply has to do with the idea that most people in churches today, even those who would be born again and certainly not everyone in the churches today are born again believers in Christ. In fact, many denominations probably have relatively few truly born again believers because the Gospel is not being taught. You know, in order for someone to become a Biblical Christian that is someone who is been saved through faith and Jesus Christ they must hear, understand, and believe the Gospel.

But beyond that evangelism is just part of the picture. Discipleship is the rest of the picture. Our salvation is the not the end of the story it’s the beginning of the story of our relationship and walk with the Lord. That’s built upon a knowledge of both the Old and the New Testament. A knowledge of the Lord and His word which He has given us to be conformed to the image of Christ. And if we are in a post Biblical era what we find is in many churches even in what has historically been conservative evangelical churches the Bible is simply not being taught and so it is post Biblical. You know so many messages rather than being Bible centered they tend to be focused on what is often called felt needs, they’re topical, they deal with issues in society but very often the Bible simply is not taught. So, even though so many would identify themselves as Christian they’re not Biblical Christians because one they have not heard the Gospel and many cases and in other cases they just don’t know what the Bible has to say.

JD: David James explaining from the Bible what a post-Biblical era is all about.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

My conversation with David James revealed what some are referring to as the post Biblical period of time when the Bible is no longer relevant. This statement the revelation from II Timothy 3:5 is a sign of the end times, ever learning never coming to the truth. Our response should be, II Timothy 2:15, study the Bible. And the reason to study the Bible is found in II Timothy 3:16. All scripture is given by God and is prophet-able for the end times.
