Greetings from Phoenix,
 
It is a good idea to look at Turkey’s position regarding the move of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.  They are lining up with Russia and moving away from the United States.  Much in scripture about the end time role of Turkey in prophecy.

Greetings from Phoenix,
 
 
The news the week primarily focuses on the scandals of politicians Hollywood actors, and corporate leaders, but there is a real crisis brewing all over the world.  If something were to break out most people be shocked and totally unaware.  
 
We are not unaware even as the Apostle Paul wrote in I Thes. 5:3 -6, For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.”

Greetings from Phoenix,
 
The dominant topic in the media has been sexual harassment in the workplace chiefly in Hollywood and Washington D.C.
with women coming forward to name their abusers. In the private sector company heads have been forced to resign or have been fired, but in politics, this is not the case.  This ties into the words Isaiah was inspired by God to write anciently: 
"Alas, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a brood of evil doers, children who are corrupters!  They have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked to anger the Holy One of Israel, they have turned away backward. why should you be stricken again?  You will revolt more and more.  The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faints.  From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but wounds and bruises and putrefying sores;  they have not been closed or bound up, or soothed with ointment."  (Isa. 1:4-8)

This week United States President Trump is visiting with Chinese President Xi, and both are trying to present a united front as they hash out differences over trade and the growing problem of  North Korea.  
 
North Korea is one of several nations which holds the potential of sparking the next world war.  North Korea will no doubt by a part of the great eastern hordes which will play a large role in the coming end time conflict. (Dan 11:44, Rev 9:16)
 
It would stand to reason with the huge numbers of China (1.3 billion) that they would be included in hordes who will be involved in the war in the final conflict prior to the return of Jesus Christ.  China currently is indeed stepping up the development of military power and striving to assert itself as a power in the Southeast Asian theater.
 
Another area to watch centers around Iran and Saudi Arabia as there is an expectation there will be a major conflict soon.   Some are predicting a bloody war.  If Iran was able to bring down the Saudi regime Iran, Syria, Hamas, and others would be emboldened to attack Israel.  
 
Any war between the Saudis and Iran could be a catalyst for the formation of the King of the South which will play heavily into the scenario foretold by the prophet Daniel.
 
We don't know exactly how prophecy will unfold,  but, as we get closer to the end of the age, we will be able to see which way events are leading.  Christ warned us to watch so we are not drawn way to the distractions of this world such that we neglect our spiritual condition, and we are caught unaware. (Lk 21:34)
