Israel and Gaza

Much has been written about the Gaza incident this week where IDF commandos boarded a Turkish aid vessel and were attacked by "Activist".  Three of the activist were killed and I do not have a number on the Israelis killed.  That is not the point.  The point is that some have had there say about prophecy from this incident.  Will this lead to Gog and Magog?  Good question.  An article was posted by famous preterist Gary DeMar about the Rabbi's praying for the Gog and Magog incident.  Of course his view is that Ezekiel 38 & 39 were fulfilled in Esther.  So if he thinks it is fulfilled why is he writing on a modern event fulfilling a prophecy except to promote his book on the subject. 

What is this incident saying?  It is showing how Turkey is now onboard with the Anti Jewish community.  In Ezekiel 38 it depending on who you read, Gomer or Meshech is Turkey.  I personally think Gomar is Germany. So that part has to come on board.  But it is getting closer.  Iran is close to having a nuclear weapon and Turkey has an alliance with them.

Whatever the prophetic significance of this is.  Israel still must be defended. The fact that the world is turning on Israel is an indication of last days.  Psalms 121:4 says "Behold, he that keepeth Israel will neither slumber nor sleep."  So you can depend on Israel to stand when all else falls.  Besides, God doesn't like a fair fight.  If He can't defeat your millions with hundreds, then it is not his style.  Just ask Gideon.
