The brothers of Magog…They include Gomer, Meshech, and Tubal. See Genesis 10:2-3.
Gomer means “complete”. Historians through the ages debate whether they lived north or south of the Black Sea. North of the Black Sea is modern day Ukraine. South of the Black Sea is modern day Turkey.
Meshech means “drawing out”; a people on the borders of Colchis (the land area east of the Black Sea). Armenia is on the eastern border of modern day Turkey. Today the region of Meshech is modern day Turkey, Russia, and Georgia.
Tubal means “thou shall be brought”; a region in east Asia Minor (modern day Eastern Turkey).
Beth Togarmah: Beth is Hebrew for house. Togarmah means “thou will break her”. Togarmah is Gomer’s son. People consider this to be Armenia. At its peak, the Armenian Empire was from modern day Syria on the Mediterranean Sea to south of the Black Sea and east to the Caspian Sea. Historically, Turkey is also known as the House of Togarmah.
The brothers of Magog (Meshech, Gomer, and Tubal) generally point to modern day Turkey.

April 16, 2017: Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan was given increased authority from Turkey’s people. The “yes” vote won 51.4% of the vote. The “no” vote garnered 48.6% of the vote. The vote was held during a state of emergency in Turkey.
Recep Erdogan now has the power to appoint the majority of judges in Turkey. He has the ability to determine ministers. The president can now set the agenda for the budget. If necessary, Turkey’s president can create law by decree. A state of emergency can be declared by the president independently. He can even dismiss parliament if necessary.
Erdogan is now eligible to run for two more five year terms after his current term is complete. There is a provision in the new powers that could allow lawmakers to allow the president to run for a third five year term. This could potentially allow Erdogan to remain in power until 2034.
Historically, Erdogan has acted decisively and aggressively. Erdogan has previously discussed protecting Sunni brothers in Mosul or ancient Nineveh. He is not a big fan of Iraqi intervention in the region of Nineveh.
Turkey’s president is not a big fan of the Kurds either. He divided the Kurdish region in and around the Euphrates River with Operation Euphrates Shield.
Keep watch and do not be surprised if Erdogan acts soon.
