How could it be that in few weeks Turkey was able to normalize its relations with Russia, Egypt and even Israel? It was only just few months ago that Turkey was on the verge of war with Russia while for few years now Turkey was cyber rattling with Egypt and Syria’s dictators and Israel. Is this the “by peace he will deceive many” spoken of in scripture and Erdogan is ‘The Antichrist’ and not just ‘an Antichrist’ and from hence forth we count seven years to park on 2023 the year Turkey said it will triumph?
On June 27, Dmitri Peskov, the Russian press secretary, revealed that Erdoğan had sent a letter of apology to Putin. Erdoğan wrote that he “would like to inform the family of the deceased Russian pilot that I share their pain and to offer my condolences to them. May they excuse us.” Furthermore, the case against the alleged killers of the Russian pilot would be reopened. On the surface, it seems that Erdoğan fulfilled the conditions of conciliation. But many experts point out that the letter doesn’t technically direct an apology to the Russian government. Additionally, Binali Yildirim, Turkey’s new prime minister, claimed that no payments would be made for the plane. Turkey, apparently, is ready only to discuss compensating the family of the pilot, not paying Moscow for damages.
In other words, Turkish diplomacy has outsmarted Russia. Turkey satisfied just enough of Russia’s conditions to please Moscow, but did not submit to the concessions that would have made Ankara look weak. Moscow has since lifted the tourism ban and removed its sanctions against Turkey.
Moscow and Ankara have long sought reconciliation, one that would not hurt the image of either country. Erdoğan’s letter to Putin was shrewd. Moscow perceives and presents it as an apology while Ankara avoids reputational costs. Now Turkey needs to restore economic relations with Russia and impose itself on the Syrian peace process.
And in Israel which is oblivious to this red-dragon coming, the High Court of Justice, on Thursday rejected three petitions that aimed to strike down the government’s rapprochement agreement with Ankara.
The deal also paved the way for Ankara to send an aid ship carrying 11,000 tons of supplies for the people living in the Gaza Strip. The ship arrived at Israel’s Ashdod port Sunday.
Kalin said Turkey would continue to support the right of Palestinians to seek an independent state and end the Israeli occupation.
“Turkey will continue to have relations with all Palestinian groups and help all Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. By normalizing relations with Israel, Turkey will also have a higher chance to contribute to the peace process and prevent unnecessary tensions and loss of life.
“This holds true for the highly critical and sensitive situation in and around Masjid al-Aqsa in Jerusalem,” he said.
While Turkey normalizes relations with Israel, this red-dragon eyes Jerusalem as the “apple of the eye of every Muslim” as Erdogan once put it. This red-dragon also succeeded in making tourism deals with Israel to send the flood gates of Muslim (Revelation 12, as we have seen in Europe) making Jerusalem an extension of the Haj they call Umra. In the near future we will see Muslim demand to allow them entry to Jerusalem from all around the world. While Israel welcomes this economically the repercussions will only be known, we predict, when they create havoc in the city.
Having bettered relations with Israel and Russia to restore stability in the region, Turkey is now even eyeing reconciliation with Egypt should the coup government in Cairo seize the opportunity for a thaw with Ankara. Amid the comfort of reconciliation in the region with Russia and Israel, Justice and Development Party (AK Party) Deputy Chairman Şaban Dişli signaled the opening of a new phase of relations with Egypt, marking the significant progress made in foreign policies by Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım.
“There has been an expectation that Turkey and Egypt would reconcile,” Burhanettin Duran, the director of Ankara-based Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research (SETA), told Daily Sabah.
“A committee will be visiting Egypt after the Ramadan Bayram holiday,” Dişli said. “A democratically elected president in Egypt is behind bars. That’s a problem. Punishing the opposition in the country altogether is also troublesome. These should be fixed,” Duran said.
And by this Erdogan is duping Al-Sisi to save the Muslim Brotherhood leadership from execution and will become Islam’s version of the biblical prophet Daniel (see Daniel 2:14), that when Al-Sisi, the commander of Egypt, had gone out to put to death the wise men of Egypt (the Muslim Brotherhood), Erdogan “spoke to him with wisdom and tact” after successfully interpreting Al-Sisi’s dream wanting to be recognized as Pharaoh of Egypt …
Perhaps this is why God says to Antichrist “are you wiser than Daniel ..”
But peace with Egypt, as it is with Russia and Israel is just tricky. On the one hand, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s regime will not be recognized and neither will Erdogan recognize Israel as a “Jewish state” and on the other hand, relations with Egypt will start at the ministerial level.
What we know from scripture is that Antichrist must do two things: 1) start from nothing 2) encompass the surrounding nations unto himself. Both points are written in scripture which are rarely considered by prophecy analysts. (more on that later)
I shall expound on these two points. Erdogan has a higher aspiration. He has been called by the devil in disguise as Allah or perhaps Allah is not a disguise at all since he is the devil denying Father and Son. He will lead the Muslim world and scriptures insist on this in Habakuk. As Turkey Pulse suggests:
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan used the recent Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit as a grandstanding opportunity to pitch his qualifications to lead the Islamic world.
These were very similar quotes we wrote two decades ago and now they are no longer speculation “to lead the Islamic world”. As we have been predicting these reconciliations early in January and now its here:
What Caliph Al-Baghdadi wanted to gain through terrorism, Erdogan of Turkey was able to gain ‘by peace’ where he is “deceiving many”. Erdogan is also now leading the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (O.I.C) considered to be the Muslim ‘U.N’ coming second to the United Nations in size and global power. But thats not all. As this happens, the cunning Erdogan was able to woo Saudi Arabia to arrange the Turkey-Egypt talks setting the framework for a peace deal between Turkey and Egypt to be finalized before April where Al-Sisi hands over the leadership of the O.I.C to Erdogan. Keep in mind, that the O.I.C represents the association of 56 Islamic states promoting Muslim solidarity in economic, social, and political affairs. But the devil is not wiser than Daniel who tells us: “And after the league is made with him he shall act deceitfully, for he shall come up and become strong with a small number of people.” (Daniel 11:23)
This “league” is a united Muslim states and the O.I.C plays a major role in this affair. Remember the Scriptures: “Cush, and Put, and Lud [Turkey], and all Arabia, and Libya, and the people of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.” (Ezekiel 30:5)
Don’t say that we never told you so, ahead of time, that you may consider the state of your spiritual affairs before the coming of the Bridegroom.
Founded in 1969 consisting of 57 member states, the O.I.C is “the collective voice of the Muslim world“. It was set up as result of the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the Caliphate after World War I left a vacuum for a pan-Islamic institution. Losing the Six-Day War in 1967 provided the incentive needed where leaders of Muslim nations met in Rabat to establish the OIC on 25 September 1969.
Having established all this, Erdogan soon wants to be Caliph which Islamically encompasses Pharaoh, his pyramids and then “He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with [its neighbors] the Libyans and Cushites [Sudan] following at his footsteps.” (Daniel 11:43)
After all, even God addresses the Antichrist asking him “are you wiser than Daniel:
“ … In the pride of your heart you say, “I am a god; I sit on the throne of a god in the heart of the seas.” But you are a mere mortal and not a god, though you think you are as wise as a god. Are you wiser than Daniel? … (Ezekiel 28:1-3)
With the Muslim Brotherhood in Erdogan’s left hand, and now the O.I.C in his right hand, normalization with Israel, Egypt and Russia, the caliphate is within site.
With Obama’s presidency (which aided Turkey’s rise tremendously) winding down, Erdogan must move quickly. This whole Obama affair stems from the pit of darkness. The devil can also make prophecy by setting up the stage through influences in dark and high places. Davutoğlu of Turkey did exactly that when he came with a prophetic vision, in one speech by Davutoğlu entitled “Vision 2023” at the official archives of the Republic of Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, quoted his demonically inspired prophecy he made in 2002 where he predicted that a “black president” will soon sit in the White House who would be “a globalist”, and he declared later that President Obama was that man. The prediction by Davutoglu can easily be verified via the links provided above. And as it seems, there is a timeframe and a deadline set: 2023, seven years from now.
Obama who was part of the 2023 Vision (prophecy) has a short time and things must move quick. “Whatever we lost between 1911 and 1923, whatever lands we withdrew from, we shall once again meet our brothers in those lands between 2011 to 2023,” Davutoğlu said in 2012, referring to the World War I era and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. “We shall break the mould shaped for us by Sykes-Picot,” he said a year later. This gives us seven years of watching the wound get healed, so patience is virtue.
Davutoğlu said that Obama was key to a new world order since he believed that Obama’s “global approach” entitled him to be called “Marcus Aurelieus” because he succeeded in establishing Erdogan’s new Roman Empire.
And we always blame Obama. However, the things that can be accomplished by the devil through American ignorant voters can be immense and has huge repercussion to what Americans choose for a Caesar. Americans who voted for Obama need to blame themselves for aiding and abetting this red-dragon. They aided in fulfilling what scriptures predicted, not of the second coming of Jesus, but of the Antichrist who precedes the Second Coming.
And its not just like the White House failed to participate with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to silence the sons of God. It had been pushing for criminalizing criticism of Islam for years, as far back as 1999 to make illegal “defamation of religions” led by Clinton during the “Istanbul Process”, kicked off officially in the city of its namesake, little more than one year prior to the Benghazi attacks. The agenda was intended to give a facelift to UN Resolution 16/18, which was adopted earlier that year by the Human Rights Council. With Clinton running for elections, Americans can continue aiding and abetting Lucifer.
And if Obama was the architect of global chaos, Davutoğlu was used by Erdogan as the architect of a dramatic shift in Ankara’s regional policy. After the AKP came to power in 2002, he spearheaded the call to revive the Ottoman Empire. Even later, the year he became foreign minister in 2009, Davutoğlu said “We are the new Ottomans” while Erdogan told Muslims what God told Zechariah that Jerusalem “is the apple of my eye,” Erdogan told the O.I.C that “Jerusalem is the apple of the eye of every Muslim” and went to desecrate it by his presence slowly removing Jordan’s influence on the holy sites and increasing Ottoman influence on that very spot.
Now with Turkey’s control over the O.I.C and even Jerusalem the caliphate is within sight.
We have maintained, that ISIS will never produce the ultimate Caliphate. We have warned that the next few years, this revival will be completed, and not only ISIS will be encompassed under the wing of the Ottomans, but Ottoman influence will dictate Muslim policy worldwide.
But besides encompassing ISIS and leading the O.I.C, the main umbrella organization for the Sunni Muslim world, Turkey is mothering the Muslim Brotherhood which will soon unite under Turkey giving legitimacy to Erdogan of what was a dream by Al-Baghdadi. This is especially true, that the spiritual head of the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt, Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi declared that:
“Turkey is the Caliphate State, and Istanbul is its capital … Turkey unites religion and the world, Arab (Wahhabist Sunnis) and Persian (Shiites), Asia and Africa, and it (the Caliphate) should be based upon this nation (Turkey)”.
Erdogan with the O.I.C can fulfill Habakuk that Antichrist “gathers all nations unto himself” and from the AKP he fits the picture Daniel predicted that Antichrist begins from “a small number of people”.
In June 2015, after Erdogan’s defeat, Shoebat.com precisely predicted this defeat will reverse and the current victory outcome was concluded from observing certain Scriptural hints “And after the league is made with him he shall act deceitfully, for he shall come up and become strong with a small number of people.” (Daniel 11:23) With the O.I.C he will gather the rest of the Muslim nations unto himself as Habakuk predicted:
“the Proud Man” who “enlarged his desires as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all peoples” (2:5).
Well, there are two components needed to make that judgment call and accuse Erdogan of being the Antichrist and not just an Antichrist. There are many antichrists.
It is not only deals between Turkey Israel, Russia and Egypt that triggers the prophecy. What is needed are two components: 1) “when they say peace and safety” 2) “And he will enter into a binding and irrevocable covenant with the many for one week (seven years)”.
It is these that will usher in the desecration of God’s holy places. Turkey just did the call to the prayer at Hagia Sophia days ago. But this is not enough, they must stop the sacrifice and grain offering (communion) after three years from the covenant which we might witness seven years from now. And I insist “we might” this is not for sure.
With the O.I.C in his hands, what we must see to do a countdown is a “Bay’at”, as Islam calls it, which is “giving allegiance,” is the hallmark of the Antichrist as John declared: “but the fatal wound was healed! The whole world marveled at this miracle and gave allegiance to the beast” (Revelation 13:3).
What we see Erdogan doing in his own government and with Russia, Israel and Egypt is “He caused deceit to prosper (Daniel 8:25) and possibly “by peace he deceived many”. He is after all a “king of fierce countenance” (Daniel 8:23).”
Erdogan denies Father and Son (1 John 2:22) and “does not honor the God of his fathers” as Turkey at one point in time was Christian. Erdogan also does “not honor the desire of women” (Daniel 11:37), prohibiting them entry in the government and promoting the wearing of the hijab.
But these alone are not enough to qualify, there are many who fit such descriptions. However, when we add other issues which do not fit any other man, we can say that this man is the best candidate so far.
Here they are. Erdogan is hailed in Turkey not only as “Sultan” but as a “prophet” “healer” and one who can even change the laws of the universe: “Spring has come to Sanliurfa. Both nature and history are rising up to greet our prime minister,” says Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek on Erdogan’s visit to the southeastern province of Sanliurfa on March 9th. Yet the Finance Minister did not face any sanctions from Erdogan for declaration of divinity and neither did AKP lawmaker Fevai Aslan who on January 16th when he said: “Erdogan is a leader who gathers all of Allah’s qualities in himself”. Neither did the Deputy Health Minister Agah Kafkas was reprimanded when on May 19, 2013 he said: “To do what Erdogan does is sunna”. “Sunna” which the Deputy Health Minister was referring to is the obedience to Muhammad. In other words, to obey Erdogan is to obey the Prophet himself! And neither was AKP lawmaker Huseyin Sahin on July 20, 2011 was reprimanded by Erdogan for saying: “Believe me, even touching our prime minister is worship to me.”
These are major figures and Erdogan is acting as if he is Christ who did not denounce worshiping Him and Erdogan did not denounce them for worshiping him either. And if one thinks that it’s only the followers who elevate Erdogan to prophet, healer, master of the universe and nature, or deity, think again. One news media from Istanbul, wrote this regarding Edrogan himself, firing anyone who denounces him being God.
Even when we insisted that Turkey will declare “Jalal al-Din Rumi. We concluded this crucial issue since Sufi Islam adheres to a theology called Fana in which man can declare himself to being God” Erdogan shortly after our prediction elevated Rumi in order to allow for such theology:
He traveled to the Central Anatolian province in order to attend the Şeb-i Aruz (Night of Union) ceremony to commemorate the 741st anniversary of the death of Jalaladdin Rumi (Mevlana) in the evening.
Erdogan praised Rumi:
“If we have a homeland and a flag today, and if we live in an independent country, all fraternally, this is thanks to believers like Mevlana, Ahmed Yesevi [Rumi], as well as our generals such as Saladin (of Ayyub dynasty) and Alparslan (of Seljuk dynasty),” Erdogan said.
Rumi is crucial for Erdogan’s dream of deity. Then we have countless statements made by Erdogan where he hones in on Jerusalem. And if Christ said that “Jerusalem is the apple of My Eye,” that is Christ’s eye, Erdogan said: “Jerusalem is the apple of every Muslim’s eye”.
He is healing the fatal wound of an empire that ruled and was the greatest menace (a beast is a menace to God’s people) to the Church (Revelation 13). Billboards can be seen all around Istanbul. The posters read:
“Yeniden Dirilis, Yeniden Yukselis,” meaning, “Resurrection Again, Rising Again.”
The fatal wound, or demise of the Ottoman Empire happened in 1923 and Erdogan intends for his resurrection of the Ottoman Empire to be done by 2023:
Therefore it is no coincidence to observe that some of the followers of Erdoğan believe he is a caliph who seeks to resurrect the Islamic Caliphate and the Ottoman Empire. It is no coincidence that Erdoğan’s target of “The Great Turkey” is intended to be completed in 2023
Erdogan, the ruler of Turkey, this flag of the red dragon with the two horns of the crescent, issued “a flood” (Revelation 12) into Europe where the heart of Christendom was in scenes that were unprecedented in history where Germany and the E.U came to Erdogan begging to stop this flood. It will be a matter of time when the woman who gave birth to the man child (Christ) stomps the crescent under her feet (Revelation 11-12).
Erdogan as he causes havoc in Syria is getting “bad news from the north” (Russia, Daniel 11:44) and desires to also rule Iraq (ancient Babylon) setting up encampments there. He is getting ready to qualify as “King of Babylon” (Isaiah 14:4, a title given to Antichrist).
So what we must do is simply wait. Will Erdogan ask for the Bay’at (allegiance)?
This is the crucial issue and without it we cannot for sure say he is the man.
But as for me:
I stand so that I don’t stop in front of
who knows whose doors.
And again I check out if I’m awake or I dream,
whether I introspect or fantasize,
what the devil is wrong with me, who knows…
And I look for a sign, a trace of suffering, is this the land
he used to walk over?
Did they really kill him, the one who was chosen, who was taken out of the desert, oh, God?
Why do I stand petrified and have no such force?
Do I not believe enough or do I misunderstand?
Where do these doubts come from,
Where does this fear come from?
Will he open to me, will he take me in?
And the one I come from will not allow,
the one who loved me will not abandon me alone in the middle of the thick forest and hands that grab me.
Oh, God, Lord, praise be thee…
Like a cedar I grew tall, like a cypress exalted
Like a palm tree in the garden, a rosebush in Engedi.
Like precious myrrh I gave forth perfume, a fragrant cane in Jericho.
Like a fair olive tree near the deep blue sea,
Like a marble mountain anchored in the middle of a field.
Like a strong fortress, protected by Thee.
Like a voice of prophets, solemn, holy.
To cry out of the depths, to sing in the desert.
Like a stone to roll downhill into abyss.
Like a mountain stream to rush to Thee.
To run to Thee, to bring forth glory to Thee.
(translated by Gavrilo Došen)
