Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz believes U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw troops from northeast Syria while Turkish forces invaded could trigger an event prophesied in Ezekiel 38.
While speaking on The Jim Bakker Show last week, Lotz said she was concerned by Trump's decision to allow Turkey to attack America's Kurdish allies, Christians and others living in northeast Syria.
"I'm like a lot of people—'what in the world is going on?'" Lotz said.
But the bestselling author thinks God may be up to something and is using Trump "whether he really knows it or not."
"I believe like King Cyrus or others in the Old Testament, Nebuchadnezzar, God uses them," Lotz explained. "So I thought, Has God caused him to go against all his advisers, all the military people, and done something that God wanted him to do—whether he knows it's God or not?"
"Maybe he's just bullheaded or stubborn or somebody rubbed him wrong. But anyway, he pulled us out," she continued.
Lotz explained that although she is "not a prophecy expert," Trump's decision could spark a war prophesied in Ezekiel 38 that "has not yet taken place."
"There is a war that is predicted, that has never happened," she said. "When Gog, the prince of Magog—who some people believe is Putin in Russia—they come down from the north and they align with Turkey and Syria ... and the Sudan and Libya and then they come up and they go against Israel."
