Turkey Abandons NATO Military Drill

Turkey abandons Nato drill over portrayal as the enemy

  • Published: 17 November 2017
  • Turkey vs NATOImage copyright GETTY caption Modern Turkey's founder was reportedly used to illustrate the enemy in the exercise

Turkey has pulled its troops out of a Nato exercise in Norway over an alleged insult to its political leaders.

Reports said that an image of the "enemy" in the mock exercise was actually a photo of modern Turkey's founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Turkish media also reported that a fake social media account in the name of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was used to send anti-Nato messages.

Turkey withdrew all 40 of its participating troops in response.

The country has the second largest military force in Nato, and is involved both in coalition efforts against so-called Islamic State and in Nato's Afghanistan mission.

Norway's Defence Minister Frank Bakke-Jensen issued a statement of apology for the incident, which he blamed on a single individual.

He said the messages had been sent on the private computer network used in the drill, "and in no way" reflected Norway's views.

Turkish broadcaster NTV said that one person involved was a Norwegian officer of Turkish descent.

  • But Mr Bakke-Jensen said the Norwegian involved was an external contractor hired for the exercise, and he had been removed from his role. An investigation is under way, he added.

Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg also issued an apology, calling Turkey a valued member of the military alliance.

Despite Turkey's military and strategic importance, given its borders with Syria, Iraq, and Iran, relations with Western nations have been under stress over the past few years.

President Erdogan was openly embroiled in diplomatic spats with Austria, Germany, and the Netherlands earlier this year when they restricted public political rallies of expatriate Turks.

Instead, Turkey has pursued a closer relationship with Russia, with which it has also co-operated on air strikes in Syria.

Turkey's candidacy for membership of the European Union has also effectively stalled, and the union was critical of President Erdogan's crackdown on academia and the judiciary following an attempted military coup last year.

In its wake, a number of Turkish officers posted to Nato requested asylum - and have been unable to return home

This latest incident highlights the tension that exists between NATO members and Turkey and their purchase of the Russian made S400 Missile Defense System.  Bible Prophecy has long shown that Turkey will never be a member of the EU and will withdraw from NATO as the Bible reveals that Turkey will have a close relationship with Russia in the lead up to mans final conflict and the return of Christ.  So keep watching this development with Turkey as she moves closer in her ties to Russia. Based on Bible Prophecy Turkey will be with Russia and Europe when they invade the Middle East as described in Ezekiel 38.   We fully expect to see Russia become more closely linked to Europe militarily whereby Russia will become a "guard" unto the European Nations according to Ezekiel 38:7. 

Also Ezekiel 38:6 says that "Gomer (France), and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (Turkey) of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee."

So somehow Turkey will be involved with Russia and it's Army and the move into the Middle East.

WHY IS BIBLE TRUTH SO IMPORTANT?

Bible Truth

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE TRUTH

Is Bible Truth important to your Faith and Salvation ie. will you be saved despite what you believe the bible teaches or does it matter what you believe?

Well the word “truth” appears 237 times in the bible, that alone says it must be important!

Therefore it must be important to understand what “truth” is.

A quick scan of the passages using this word “truth” leave us in no doubt that it is not only important, but vital to our salvation.

John 17:3

3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

1 John 5:20

20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true,even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1 Timothy 2:3-4

3For thisis good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

 

Clearly then knowing what is Bible Truth is important and vital, in addition to this we are also warned that some would depart from the “truth”…

1 Timothy 4:1

1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry,and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1 John 4:6

6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

From these passages it is very clear that we need to know the “truth” about God and His Son as it is taught to us in the Bible.  This means we must learn what this is from the Bible itself.

 

Don't let your HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL rest with someone else eg. your pastor or minister, YOU owe it to yourself and your family to be fully convinced of what it is you believe to be sure it HOLDS something REAL for you.

We have all been warned by God that there would be many false teachers and Jesus himself has told us that "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."  See Matthew 7:14

 

Sadly when Christ returns to this earth, many will only then realise that they have believed in lies Jeremiah 16:19

"19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit."

Don't let this be you or your family!

 

BIBLE TRUTH and true faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

You owe it to yourself and your family to be sure of what it is you believe, the Apostle Paul has told us to "work out our own salvation with fear and trembling"  Philippians 2:12

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

The Holy BibleThe Bible provides us with plain Scriptural Teaching for the True Followers of Christ

The statements are deliberately challenging, asking every reader to compare his own opinions with the plain teaching of Scripture, examining carefully the Bible passages offered as proof. If, as a result, a change of mind and heart is called for, there will be no doubt that the teaching of the Lord, and the book he trusted, must be followed and not what the churches teach.

True Bible Teaching - What the Bible really says about God and His Purpose

Jesus Christ could not have been invented!

Jesus Christ could not have been inventedJesus could not have been invented

The Gospels depict Jesus in a way unlike any other historical figure or character of the day, either Jewish or from Roman-Greek society. He has some of the characteristics of a Jewish teacher, but there are major problems with seeing him in this way. There is nothing about him to suggest he is a Greek hero.

The Apostle Paul noted this:

"For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness" (1 Corinthians 1:22–23).

The point here is that if the pagan Greeks were inventing someone to be the Son of God, he would not have been crucified. Instead he would have been a hero in the Greek mould. Similarly, if the figure of a Messiah were to have been invented by a Jew, then that Messiah would not have been crucified.

The Jewish Expectation

The Jewish idea of Messiah came from the Old Testament. Passages like Psalm 2 give a picture of the kind of person the Messiah would be:

"The LORD has said to me, “You are My Son, today I have begotten you. Ask of Me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel.” (Psalm 2:7–9).

In the first and early second centuries there were a number of people who claimed to be the Messiah and raised rebel armies to defeat the Romans. All of them failed and their followers were scattered. However, their existence indicates what Jews expected in a Messiah.

No Greek Hero

Had the Gospels been made up by a messianic Jew, they would have reflected these military ambitions.

Certainly, the descriptions of the Jewish authorities (Scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees) would have been quite different.

No Greek Hero

The alternative possibility is that the Gospels were invented by a Gentile (a non–Jew). However, we also know what the Greeks expected from a Son of God. In the second century, Lucian of Samosata wrote a satire on Christianity, and an attack on Christianity was written by Celsus. In the early third century Philostratus wrote a book which attempted to show that Apollonius of Tyana was a more acceptable hero than Jesus Christ. These attacks on Christianity show what kind of hero the Greeks were expecting and would find palatable.

The Greek documents indicate a hero who differed from Jesus in a number of ways. The Greek messiah would have had the body of a Greek god. He would have defeated his enemies in battle, caused and stopped plagues, destroyed monsters and appeared in great splendour and glory.

As Celsus explains in intricate detail, the hero would have met kings and worked with cities. He would not have been born to a carpenter’s wife, in an obscure area on the fringe of the Roman Empire. His miracles would have been magnificent works of huge theatrical effect rather than healing sick people or feeding the hungry. He would have been a philosopher–hero like Apollonius or a demigod like Hercules.

Clearly Jesus of Nazareth, who walked among the poor, healed the sick and proclaimed the Kingdom of God to come would not match the expectations of those looking for a pagan hero or a Greek demigod.

Inspiring Followers

It is almost impossible to imagine how a figure like Jesus could have inspired a community of followers who, after his death, spread across the world carrying his message. That is unless the claims of Jesus and the testimony of eye-witnesses are true and he genuinely rose from the dead.

Many Jews followed messianic figures like Theudas (see Acts 5:36) or the Egyptian leader (Acts 21:38).

They rose up and went into the desert, or they mustered armies to fight the Romans, but they were defeated. The messianic figure died and the surviving followers dispersed. The followers then had two choices. Either they found another messianic pretender to follow or they gave up completely. They did not continue to follow their leader after he had died.

Jesus Christ is different. Jesus never raised an army, and had no intention to take power by force. At the time of his crucifixion his last remaining disciples “forsook him and fled” (Mark 14:50). During the time between the crucifixion and the resurrection, Jesus’ disciples hid away. There was no intention to go out and spread the message of Jesus despite his death.

It was only after the resurrection that the followers of Jesus began to organise themselves, and only fifty days later, after Pentecost, that they began to proclaim the Gospel publicly. There was something quite different about Jesus which meant that his disciples followed a different course of action from those followers of other teachers and leaders.

Essentially the Jesus of the Bible could not and would not be invented.

Nobody in the ancient world would have devised anyone like the Jesus we read about in the Gospels. He simply doesn’t fit the ideas of the world of his time. The evidence shows that Jesus was real, and because he rose from the dead he still is real. It is up to us to consider this carefully and to investigate the claims of Jesus Christ.
