Antichrist: Looming on the Horizon

By Walid Shoebat

Many are speculating in mainstream media outlets about what they perceive to be a weakened Turkish government under prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. A corruption scandal is dogging him and the ‘Arab Spring’ has hit a few bumps in the road.

According to ABC’s Religion and Ethics Report…

Back in 2011, when the impulse for reform and democracy looked like it was sweeping through the Middle East, Turkey’s prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan won rock star treatment throughout the Muslim world. The New York Times reported on his ‘Arab Spring tour’, which touched down in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia.

The leader of Tunisia’s an-Nahda party, Rashid al-Gannouchi, was just one among many putative Arab democrats who cited the Erdogan-led Justice and Development Party (AKP) as a template for the Muslim world. In Turkey, Erdogan had nurtured a deep and observant Islamic culture alongside democracy.

About the coming March 30th elections, World Affairs Journal (WAJ) reported:

A year ago or so, standing before his Justice and Development Party (AKP) Congress, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan proclaimed great goals for Turkey and himself, pointing towards 2023, the hundredth anniversary of the Turkish Republic, as a potential golden moment. Among his plans was a constitutional change giving the presidency enhanced powers equal to and perhaps exceeding even those of modern Turkey’s founding father, Kemal Ataturk.

A bit later, WAJ then confirms what we predicted two decades ago:

Erdogan has repeatedly sought the mantle of the Ottomans, and in an ironic way he has attained it, although not in the way he hoped. When speaking in Germany in February 2014 about Turkey’s upcoming March 30th municipal and local elections, the first of three over the next eighteen months, he could not avoid the topic of alleged government corruption, of a scale one might call “neo-Ottoman.”

But there is also another man in the mix – Abdullah Gul – about whom Al Jazeera Center for Studies wrote in 2012:

Gul succeeded in gaining the confidence of large segments of the population and advanced his position to become a symbol of unity and to maintain a balance between state institutions and its various arms.

Many in the Arabic media who oppose Turkey’s latest incursion into Syria, refer to Abdullah Gul in the context of what his name literally means. “Gul” literally translated into Arabic means “monster/beast”. While many argue that “Gul” is the Turkish meaning “rose”, they are not aware that the word is of Arab origin. The great-grandfather of Abdullah Gul was an Arab from Siirt who settled in Develi around 1915. Emine Erdoğan, the wife of Recep Tayyip Erdogan was also born to an Arab family in Siirt.

Such a pedigree plays a major role in advancing an Islamist cause which will unify the Muslim world, to include Iran, where the religious ruling sect are Azeri Turks.

Westerners cannot connect the dots. They view what happens in the Muslim world through a western lens, as demonstrated in the WAJ article:

In Germany, Erdogan answered charges of corruption and anti-democratic behavior by arguing that Turkey’s dramatic economic growth during his time in office, along with his party’s electoral triumph in 2011, prove he is honest and democratic. “The national income increased from $230 billion to $800 billion. Exports rose from $36 billion to $152 billion. Can a corrupt country or a government achieve this?”

Erdogan is telling everyone – including his people – that he is the savior of the Muslim world. After all, it is the Mahdi who increases and brings forth blessings to the people.

Erdogan has more control than the west thinks.

The west sees Erdogan’s AKP party as being in trouble while not realizing that Erdogan and Gul are two cunning devils who are fooling the west by playing the game of good cop vs. bad cop. Gul, while he said the law increasing government power over the judiciary violated the Turkish constitution, has done exactly the opposite and signed into law such controversial legislation increasing the government’s power over the judiciary. He clearly does the opposite of what he says.

Gul says that the ban on twitter will be over soon. Sure, it will; after the elections are over.

The ruling AKP also controls the media:

The reward for supporting the government could be business contracts but the punishment for not supporting it is NOT ‘no contracts’; it is getting tax fines and possibly facing bankruptcy. Thus, the choice for media bosses is unquestioning support for the government or bankruptcy.

According to the Publishing Institute, pro-Erdogan newspapers hold 41% of the market, 27% for Gulen and the liberals only hold 13%. Now with the Twitter ban, which the opposition desperately relies on, it looks like Erdogan will still be the Sultan of Turkey. According to Al Jazeera, the number of printed ballots is nearly three times higher than the number of registered voters. This is certainly cause to question the honesty of this election.

Pro-Erdogan newspapers dominate market in Turkey.

According to Al Jazeera…

The March 30 elections will define the soul of the Turkish political system for years, and possibly decades, to come. These local elections will be more consequential than the presidential election in August 2014 or the parliamentary elections in 2015. And, both the AKP and the opposition are fully aware of the potential repercussions of a defeat.

In a recent Brookings Institute Report, ALI Çarkoğlu writes:

There is some slight reduction of support for the AKP, but the gap between them and their competitors have not closed in any significant way. All the talk of the Gulen-Erdogan rift will mount to little effect.

The Antichrist is said to rule from Pergamus (Revelation 2:12-13), which Christ proclaimed would be the future seat of Satan. This is on the sides of the northern lands (Asia Minor / Turkey). In 2014 and beyond, Turkey will be spreading its tentacles throughout the Muslim nations. Eventually Egyptians, Libyans, Tunisians, Algerians, Moroccans, Mauritanians, Sudanese, Somalis, Syrians, Pakistanis, Azerbaijanis, Uzbeks, Turkmens will all be looking at Turkey’s Islamist model and pledging allegiance to the New Ottoman Empire.

A Caliphate will arise out of Turkey and the Gog of Turkey will portray himself as the re-incarnation of Muhammad, Saladin and the Ottoman Sulaiman Al-Qanuni (Sulaiman the law-giver).

Islam being controlled by non-Arabs will eventually put Saudi Arabia at risk of destruction by Iran (Isaiah 21). Arabia, the source of Islam, will be no more (Isaiah 34, Ezekiel 25:13) and the oil of the Arabs will burn forever (Isaiah 34:9). All this will happen despite the U.S. effort to arm Arabia to the teeth.

Unlike western media, which is in collective denial, the “Turkish Model” is today admired in all Muslim nations. Millions in the Muslim world are calling for Erdogan to lead them with his modernistic Islamist model. With the “Turkish Model”, Turkey and the Muslims will deceive the West into thinking that at least “moderate” Islam is better than fundamentalism. Peaceful Islam will be the talk for the next few years to come, especially after all the trouble going on in Syria.

“By peace he [Antichrist] will deceive many” (Daniel 8:25)

The West will enter the Neville Chamberlain era with “peace in our time”. They will fulfill 1 Thessalonians 5:3, which says, “just when they say peace and safety sudden destruction will come…” At this point, the West will find out in the end that “secular Islam” and “fundamentalist Islam” are two faces of the same coin.

We predict that the AKP will defeat the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) and the MHP (Nationalist Movement Party) in this coming election. Turkey will never be the same again. Erdogan has changed set times and laws. The new Sultan-Hitler, Tayyip Bey is on the horizon and all the western media saying he is losing momentum will wake up on March 31 and it will be Sultan Erdogan, the winner.

  • How long will the sleeping slumber? There are folk who are awake, and frankly we are preparing for what is coming.

      While they sleep, David W. Lincoln is not. He is like the 5 virgins who kept the oil in their lamps, ready for the Bridegroom to come 😉

      • Thank you, and as long as having more than one contemporary good example is the case, the task is easier to keep the oil in their lamps. 🙂

  • yahshua love’s you

    Erdoham will turn Turkey in to Afghanistan if he keeps on with his crap but that’s his idea anyway and the rest of Europe is bound to become a mass battlefield and the anti Christ is here for lawlessness is true out the whole world like how yehoshua Ben yehova has predicted

    Satan’s throne is said to be the Zeus altar at Pergamos whichis now in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, Germany. It was built in 2nd century BC by the Seleucid King Eumenes II in the Acropolis of Pergamos and features a frieze showing the battle of the Giants and the Olympian gods (the Gigantomachy frieze) and a fire altar. It became a temple to Augustus Caesar and fell into disuse after the Romans. At the turn of the 19th/20th century, a German archaeologist excavated it and brought it to Germany where it was used as a model for a tribute to Hitler who gave speeches from the model. The Russians took it as war booty to Leningrad. It was returned to Berlin in 1958 and there it sits. The Turkish government is reportedly trying to get it back from Germany.

    Just some background for everyone. If the altar goes back to Turkey, there isn’t much time left, IMO.

      The biblical text speaks of Pergamos, the city, not the altar. You will never find the word “altar” in the biblical text. Magog is a place not an altar, also in Zechariah 9:13 “Javan/Ionia/Greece” is a location, not an altar. Also in Ezekiel 30 Lydia … its all over Scripture. Let Scripture be the guide and not some interpretation you got from some prophecy buff.

      • You mention Magog. I recall it was also called Hierapolis, and it isn’t that far from Laodicea.

        Alas, we are still dealing with the baneful legacy of Phrygia.

      • Sam1427

        Not to worry. I do read Holy Scripture. I think I first came across the Zeus altar in a Bible Encyclopedia book and it was just one of those little trivia bits that I find interesting.

    When all of mankind, along with man’s religions learn all Religions who follow and praise their creator, follow the antichrist. Until mankind learns this world is Satan’s creation and realm, as he is the creator of us in the flesh also. Then maybe mankind will have a chance of breaking a chain that has brought wars upon wars and created laws that have created division within this world, which are of men only. All religious laws bind many souls to this world we are all supposed to overcome in it’s entirety. It’s our soul that is more important to God than our flesh, yet many souls never find that simple truth, as they follow the teachings of men. All books of scripture from all religions have men’s false truths intermingled with God’s truth. God’s truths are not in-line with God’s truths. Truths not taught by men, but by the Father himself who’s power mankind has never seen before. The true Father, has never given a worldly commandment to anyone, as his commandments are only spiritual, and they do not interfere with man’s rule over this world we are supposed to overcome, not bind to. Man has not the strength to overcome this world, thus all who cling to worldly teachings no matter how old or young a religion may be, it is of this world and not of God. God dwells within temples of flesh who bow to no man, yet all religions have those within them who will kill and die for their beliefs. Truth is God’s people are at war with no one, thus God my Father, watches over his own, and the world knows them not, for they are those who seek for truth beyond all the false teachings of men. If anything I’ve said upsets you or offends you, ask yourself this; Who is being offended? You, or the demons within you that hate truths that are not in line with the laws of worldly religious leaders throughout the entire world, who can’t come together through one simple truth. There is only one God and his angels are being prepared to make their debut, to come and remove all who offend him. For as Jesus himself said to the woman at the well, “You know not to who you pray to.” Few will be left standing when they are finished. When? Only God knows.
