What are Turkish President Erdogan’s plans?
Remove Assad. Reinstate Morsi.
By Craig C. White
On November 1, 2015 Turkish President Erdogan’s AKP Party won a majority of seats in the Turkish Parliament. Now that Erdogan has a mandate for his strong arm leadership what does he intend to do? In a speech made after the election Erdogan stated that his top priorities are to remove Syrian President Assad from office and replace him with a Muslim Brotherhood ruler. Next Erdogan intends to reinstate ousted Egyptian President Morsi who is also a Muslim Brotherhood figure.
You may say that this is politics as usual but the Bible tells us that both of these things are the actions of the Antichrist!
In the verse below, Jeremiah mentions two cities. Hamath and Arpad are both located in northwestern Syria. These cities are along the path of an invasion launched from Turkey headed towards Damascus. The Antichrist will invade Syria and destroy its capital city of Damascus.
Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.

Turkish President Erdogan also wants to reinstate Morsi as President in Egypt. In Daniel chapter 11 the Antichrist is compared to Grecian ruler Antiochus Epiphanies. Like Antiochus Epiphanies the Antichrist will also conquer Egypt. According to Daniel this event happens during the first half of the seven year Tribulation period. That means that the Resurrection and Rapture will happen beforehand!
Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

So Erdogan and Turkey will invade Syria from its northwestern border and destroy Damascus. Turkey will also conquer Egypt. This is what the Bible says. These are also the two major goals of Turkish President Erdogan. Erdogan is the Antichrist. It is likely that the Rapture will occur before Turkey invades Egypt or perhaps even sooner! I hope that you are paying attention. It is High Time to Awake!
