In the latest salvo of an escalating war of words between Turkey’s Erdogan and France’s Macron, the Turkish president said after Friday prayers at a mosque that he hopes France will get rid of Emmanuel Macron as soon as possible (ref. 1).
Turkey and France have been at odds over drilling rights in the eastern Mediterranean, a dispute between Turkey on one side and Greece and Cyprus on the other, the latter two being member states of the European Union. Turkey and France have also clashed rhetorically over the war in Nagorno-Karabakh between Azerbaijan and Armenia, and also covertly over the civil war of Libya. Most recently, the French Interior Ministry’s decision to investigate and then close 76 mosques in France (ref. 2) seen as threats to France’s security and values, notably laïcité, have triggered Erdogan, who regards himself as a champion of Islam. France’s ongoing crackdown on Islamism on French soil is, of course, motivated by the recent spate of Islamic terrorist attacks against France and the EU.
Erdogan, who had said earlier that Macron needed a “mental check” for challenging Islam, specifically encouraged the yellow-vest protest movement that had erupted in France in 2018 to regain momentum and overthrow Macron as soon as possible. Talk about foreign interference!
Macron, for his part, refused to be drawn into a new round of insults with Erdogan, and simply remarked, “I believe in respect… I think invective between political leaders is not good.”
I have mentioned before that in these last days, France will be on the side of God. The Hebrew name “Emmanuel”, as you may know, literally means “God with us”.
Since Pergamon, the seat of Satan, is located in modern-day Turkey, it is no wonder that Turkey now despises France.
And to the angel of the church in Pergamos; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.Revelation 2:12-13
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.Revelation 13:1-2
Next, notice Erdogan’s remark that “Yellow vests could later turn into red vests” (ref. 1).
For those who still do not understand, red is the colour of Jesus Christ in the war to come, a world war that will culminate in Armageddon. The flag of one of the kings of the east is almost entirely red.
Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment [red]. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.Isaiah 63:2-3
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood [red]: and his name is called the Word of God.Revelation 19:12-13
Red represents the winepress of the wrath of God.
Towards the end, all who are for Islam will be on one side and various reds will be on the other.
