Echoes of an Ancient Battle
"Go up, O horses. and rage, O chariots! And let mighty men go forth - Kush and Put who handle the shield, and Lud who handle and bend the bow. For this is the day of the Master Yahweh of hosts, a day of vengeance, to revenge Himself on His adversaries. And the sword shall devour, and be satisfied and made drunk with their blood. For the Master Yahweh of hosts has a slaughtering in the land of the north by the river Euphrates" (Jer.46:9-10, ISRV)
This passage of scripture is traditionally associated with the defeat of Egypt under Pharaoh Necho and his overthrowing by the Babylonians at the Battle of Carchemish by the Euphates river in 605 BC at which time Egypt lost all its territory west of the river. And there can be no doubt that in the prophetic cycle of which Jeremiah was a part that this was its primary fulfilment.
The Cyclical Nature of Prophecy Turns Up Again
However, as I hope should now be plain given previous examples we have looked at, we are to understand such prophecy as repeating itself in epochal cycles so that similar yet new actors on the same territory may reappear centuries later. As evidence of the cyclical nature of prophecy in today's passage, which was sent to me by a brother as a davar (word) sent to him by Yahweh while witnessing to Somali brethren, we note the usage of the term "the day of the Master Yahweh" (more familiar to evangelicals as "the Day of the LORD") as clearly referencing this particular judgment of Egypt yet which is simultaneously familiar to us as the final or eschatological judgment on earth . This "the day of the Master Yahweh", whilst "the" day of Yahweh to those in Jeremiah's time, is nonetheless "a" day of Yahweh to us, "the" day of Yahweh for us being what is happening now which, to the next generation, will be "a" day of Yahweh because they will witness "THE" ultimate Day of Yahweh in the final Yom haKippurim.
Modern Carchemish on the Turkish-Syrian Border
In other words, the judgment of Egypt at Carchemish in 605 BC was a type of the Mishpat Yahweh taking place before our very eyes in the northern region of the Euphrates (Iraq and Syria) as well as being a type of the FINAL MISHPAT YAHWEH that will occur when Yah'shua (Jesus) returns in the final generation after my own at the final Yom Teruah (Day of Trumpets/Shouting) whose task is the Final Gathering. Of particular interest is that today Carchemish is a Turkish-Syrian border town just inside Turkey.
An Imminent Modern Battle of Carchemish
In other words, brethren and sisters, a repeat Battle of Carchemish is imminent in the Middle East in our day that will see the modern 'Egyptian' power defeated by the modern 'Babylonian' power. Who are these modern powers?
Identifying Egypt and Babylon Today ... and the Turkish Wildcard
'Egypt' represents the modern brutal, murderous, enslaving power of the Islamic Caliphate in this prophetic cycle. 'Babylon' is the Rome-London-Washington Illuminati Axis that other enslaving power that currently governs the planet and is struggling to completely take it over. You will have noticed that Turkey, where the former Istanbul-based Ottoman Empire and Caliphate power once ruled until defeated by the Rome-London-Washington Illuminati Axis (then known, with others like France and Russia, as the 'Allies') in 1918, has suddenly been thrust onto the modern scene, as both a supporter of the modern 'Caliphate' calling itself ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) and IS (Islamic State), as well having ambitions to be the restored Ottoman Caliphate itself, as well as (for now) being the reluctant ally of the Western Babylonian power which, together with the counterfeit Israeli state, actually created ISIS in the first place to destablise the region and create a pretext to wage open war against Assad of Syria, one of the few remaining nations not under control of the Western Babylonian banksters. It looks as though Turkey, which is a member of NATO and is trying to get into the EU (even though only 5% of the country is actually in Europe), is going to be drawn into the Syrian-Iraqi conflict in a modern day Carchemish.
A Contest Between Two Demonic Warlords
We are in the middle of a battle between at least two demonic warlords - the Illuminati and Islamic organisations like ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaida, Hamas and Hezbollah - thrashing it out for control, puppets on strings in Satan's hands. We are not - and can never be - on either side. Christians and Messianics have got to see through the lie that is Zionism and recognise it for what it is - one of the devil's 'good cops' in a cynical and murderous good cop/bad cop set-up where both sides - Western-Zionist and Islamist  - are creations of the devil playing a deadly game of deceit. If you still don't know the emet (truth) about Israel, or remain in denial because of all the brainwashing you have been subjected to by Christian and Messianic Zionists, then it is essential that you carefully read (again if necessary) my sermon series, JACOB'S TROUBLE because you absolutely do not want the Enemy to have a claim on you in this critical time of Teshuvah (Repentance) and Judgment, or miss your way in the Second Exodus.
What is Our Rôle as Believers in This Battle?
A New Battle of Carchemish is imminent that is going to change the course of history. But it is not the only life-changer in the works. The important thing is that we, as talmidim (disciples) of the Master Yah'shua (Jesus) step aside and not involve ourselves in this in any way but let the devil's protagonists fight it out. Though the élite will appear to have won the war when they win this important battle, and earn them a measure of gratitude from the slave-class, their victory will only be temporary, globally-speaking, and will not for their sake but for the elect's, for Babylon does not ride triumphant very long in this current prophetic cycle, and indeed is alrealy being defeated by Yahweh's man-of-the-moment in Russia and his Chinese ally.
Conclusion and Admonition
A large and complex world power-web is being woven that only Yahweh fully understands. We must simply get out of the way, including and especially any kind of involvement with Zionism, let Yahweh execute His Mishpat (Judgment) by being in the right place at the right time doing the right thing, which for now is making teshuvah (repenting) and spreading the Kingdom Message!

 There is a great deal of confusion in both Christian and Messianic circles as to the rôle of Islam in the end-time, and though it does play a significant and important rôle, Islam is not the final Anti-Messiah/Antichrist Beast but one of several. Books such as Tim Roosenberg's Islam and Christianity in Prophecy (Review and Herald Publishing Association, Hagerstown, MD: 2011) and Simon Altaf's World War III - Unmasking the End Time Beast (Your Arms to Yisrael Publishing, Miami Beach, Florida: 2007), though containing excellent research material, tend to obscure this for lack of a proper understanding of prophetic cycles of history
