Prophetic Photo?

Ron Cantor shared this photograph (by Josh Wander) on Facebook writing,
"Last night, on the second night of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles), just after we finished dinner, thunder and lightning storms hit Jerusalem. A local man snapped a picture of a lightning bolt that appeared to have hit the minaret tower of the Al-Aksa Mosque on the Temple Mount where the first and second temples stood.
That is amazingly reminiscent of the Oct 11th email Rick Ridings of Succat Hallel sent out - a prophetic vision:

"I saw the Lord shrouded in a pillar of dark clouds above the Temple Mount. Flashes of lightning went from the clouds towards Tehran, Ankara, and Moscow. Lightning struck a demonic throne in each place. The thrones started shaking and gradually disintegrating. Then the dark clouds began to dissipate. The Lamb was revealed inside, radiantly white. He was then revealed in a much greater way to Israel and the nations.

"The following Monday, September 16th, the three leaders of Iran, Turkey, and Russia met together in Ankara, Turkey. The threats of Turkey invading the Kurdish area of Syria (and killing large numbers of Christians among them) are very real, as are the threats coming from Iran to destroy Israel."

Pastor Andrew Brunson, who was falsely imprisoned in Turkey for two years before being set free at the priority urgings of the Trump administration, is now sharing the prophetic dream he had in a Turkish prison cell in December 2016. Here is the gist of it:

"In the dream, Turkey, Iran, and Russia began to move together in a very dark alliance," he explained. Brunson woke up from the dream drenched in sweat and barely able to speak. At the time, Turkey and Iran had been enemies for years so he knew something drastic was about to happen.

Several days after Brunson had his dream, a Turkish police officer assassinated the Russian ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov while he was speaking in Ankara. But instead of sparking hostility between Russia and Turkey, Brunson said it seemed to bring the two countries together. He believes the alliance has been growing stronger ever since.

Right out of the gate, CBN Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell said, 'This is in many ways a jihad' in his explanation of the Turkish invasion of Syria. Click the link to read his analysis.

Gatestone Institute wrote: As the Voice of America itself reported on January 23, Erdogan's plan was to resettle three million or more refugees from other parts of Syria in this "security zone" extending twenty miles deep into Syria. Twenty miles may not sound much, but – the VOA omitted to mention – almost all the Kurdish towns of northeastern Syria lie within that area. So Erdogan's intention to annihilate the Kurdish presence in that area and replace it with others has been manifest ever since the beginning of 2019.

Now one week after the Trump-Erdogan phone call we see that the U.S. letting down its guard opened a door for Turkey to carry out its desire to annihilate the Kurds as they invaded Syria in the Kurdish stronghold where the Kurds have been keeping ISIS captives in prisons. Today in new headlines: Turkey Boasts ‘Neutralizing’ 595 Kurds. Many Syrian Christians have also been caught up in the melee Turkey is visiting on Syria in their effort to commit the genocide of the Kurds.
Israel has been outspoken in favor of the Kurds, in fact, Israeli Messianic ministries have also written in their prayer letters over several years now about their work with and prayers for the Kurds. Some Israeli newspapers in the past week are asking "Is There a Biblical — and Genetic — Reason Why Jews Support the Kurds?" According to results of a new study at the Hebrew University there is a close genetic connection between Jews and Kurds. From a genetic point of view the study finds that the Kurds may be the people with the closest genetic connection  to the Jews.
To understand the political confusion most people have regarding the Kurds, I would like to recommend you watch this Facebook video Dalton Thomas of FAI. Dalton is one of the "Sheep Among Wolves" filmmakers  about the Christian revival in Iran, has also lived and laboured among the Kurds for several years.  This is the most informative and educational I have seen on the Kurds and why it is important for Christians to support and pray for them.
What I have presented here are both prophetic and hard news views of believers-professionals who have actually served, and are serving in the region. In my opinion, these are the voices most worthy paying attention to because far-removed politicians and pundits cannot possibly have the spiritual element in priority as they assess the ever-changing Middle East alliances. I hope subscribers will do a deep dive into the links provided in this article.  — Donna Diorio
