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.

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 18 years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University.
When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing.
Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing.
Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies.
Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. Since then, traffic on the website doubled in each of the next two years. Exposure continues to grow and increase from the previous year as of 2016.
In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. The videos and written posts have been well received. Between the blog and YouTube channel, God’s prophetic words have reached over 190 countries.
Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
Friends and family help and support the blog and YouTube channel with content ideas. There is too much happening in relation to Bible prophecy for one person to follow and command the events of our day.
That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project…
Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy.
At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.
