End of the World Players
A Roster of World Leaders poised to fulfill their Prophetic end of the world roles.
By Craig C. White
Egypt had it’s “cruel leader”. Turkey has it’s “chief prince”, End time bible personalities are popping up everywhere. It seems that some of the people that will participate in events right up to Jesus Christ’s return are already on the world stage. That could mean that Jesus will return during their terms in office! Whoa!
This is all leading to Jesus’ second coming. We get the word Revelation from the Greek word apokalupsis (ap-ok-al’-oop-sis). Apokalupsis or Apocalypse is translated as Revelation. It means to reveal or disclose. So the Apocalypse of Jesus Christ is when Jesus returns to earth in all his glory and in judgment. The Apocalypse of Jesus Christ will reveal God’s wrath and revelation of righteous judgment.
Many Christians have sensed the Apocalypse approaching. Few have identified the process or the players. For instance; Daniel chapter 7 tells us about four kings that will be instrumental in creating the final gentile world empire. This world empire was described in Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in Daniel 2:40-45. The Antichrist will be the head of this final gentile world empire. So who are the four kings that create this empire? Who will play a prophetic role during the Apocalypse? Following is a roster of world leaders that are poised to fulfill their end of the world roles.
Position: Turkey, Magog
Player: Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan: For many years Turkey has been an ally to Israel and the US. Since 2003 Turkey has become less cooperative with the US and grown more and more antagonistic toward Israel. Lately Turkey has shown its propensity toward radical Islamic rule. According to Ezekiel 38 in the bible, Gog is the land of Turkey and Magog is its prominent settler. I believe that Magog also refers to an end time Turkish leader. Turkey (Gog) and its primary governor (Magog) will lead a military campaign against Israel. It is called “The battle of Gog and Magog” (Read Magog Made Easy). According to Ezekiel 38:5 Turkey will be joined by Iran, Libya and Ethiopia (The original Hebrew word is Cush and is more accurately translated as Sudan). “Magog”, Turkey’s primary governor will lead the charge. Today Turkey has a leader that fits the Magog profile. His name is Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. He became Prime Minister of Turkey in 2003. He is a devout Muslim and has an ingrained animosity toward Israel. He also has a volatile disposition. He has been over-zealous in his public hatred and provocation toward Israel. While most Middle Eastern despots are being besieged and exiled, Prime Minister Erdoğan is popular and gaining in popularity. Erdoğan has continued to publicly overstate his condemnation of Israel. Erdogan also sees himself as the new sultan of a revived Turkish led Ottoman Empire.
Position: Four kings will be instrumental in creating the final gentile world empire! They are described in Daniel chapter 7 as being from 1) England, 2) Russia, 3) Central Asia, and 4) the final gentile world empire.
Player: England, Tony Blair: The former Prime Minister of England is playing a major role in the effort to form a one world government.
Player: England, Prince Charles of England: Is also looked to among the one world government movement. He happens to be the head figure in all the Masonic Order, which unites the entire world.
Player: Russia, Dmitri A. Medvedev: Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev (Russian meaning “bear”) is a prime candidate for involvement in creating the one world government.
Player: Russia, Vladimir Putin: Russian President Vladimir Putin is among the top world leaders.
Player: Central Asia, Pervez Musharraf: If you will remember that former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf was served an arrest warrant for the 2007 Benazir Bhutto assassination. Miss Bhutto was a former two terms Prime Minister of Pakistan. The assassination happened two weeks before the election in which she was frontrunner. Musharraf fled Pakistan and was exile in London and Dubai. He was never tried. He is now back in Pakistan awaiting trial. Musharraf is the Pakistani front man for the formation of the Central Asian Union.
Player: Central Asia, Barack Obama: US president Barack Obama is spearheading an effort to form a confederacy of four nations: Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, and Turkmenistan. Pakistani ex-President Pervez Musharraf gleefully expressed his desire to have US president Barrack Obama as their “Supreme Leader”. It is interesting to note that the Pakistani leadership is in the market for a “Supreme Leader”; considering this is a newly created position. Barrack Obama is slated to become the “Supreme Leader” of this Central Asian confederacy.
Player: New World Order, The Fourth King: The leader of the final gentile world empire will also participate in its creation. He may be its first leader, or he may be its eventual leader; namely the Antichrist.
Position: Egypt’s cruel lord. Near the time of the tribulation Egypt will be led by a cruel leader. Egyptian will be set against Egyptian. He will be stubborn and not govern according to the people. Egypt’s cruel lord may have already come and gone. After him Egypt will receive a King (Isa 19:4).
Player: Mohamed Morsi: Egyptian Presidential candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood, and former Egyptian President. Now Egyptian is fighting against Egyptian in protest. Morsi supporters are moving town to town targeting Coptic Christians and looting and burning Churches.
Position: Egypt’s fierce king: After Egypt’s cruel lord it will be ruled by a fierce king (Isa 19:4). Egypt’s fierce king will lead them down a path of national economic ruin! He will disobey God and cause the Egyptian people to suffer greatly (Isa 19:4).
Player: Saudi Arabia royal family : The Saudi Arabian royal family is up to there elbows in post Muslim Brotherhood Egypt. Saudi Arabia is providing Egypt with financial support. Saudi Arabia wants to keep the Muslim Brotherhood out of power in Egypt. It may be that Egypt will receive its king from Saudi Arabia.
Position: Israel’s Idol Shepherd (Zechariah 11:16-17) This is not the Antichrist, but a rotten Israeli leader! Read Woe to the Idol Shepherd.
Player: Possibly Israel’s next prime minister or president?
Position: The Assyrian The Assyrian invades Syria and then northern Israel, and sometime later invades Israel again! The Assyrian is an end time invader similar to the ancient Assyrian Kings. The Assyrian may also be the same as the Antichrist and also the same as Magog (see above).
Player: Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan: This is the closest that I have ever been to identifying the Antichrist. Read The Assyrian is the Antichrist!
Position: Antichrist The leader of the final gentile world empire.
Player: Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan: I think that Erdogan will invade Syria decimating Damascus and then lead the forces that are fighting in Syria now in an invasion into Israel just as the ancient Assyrian kings did. He may then enforce a seven year treaty with world leaders.
They say that this is the end of the world. Well it may be the end of the world as we know it. I would say that it is about to be the end of the world as a nice place to live. A terrible period of seven years is about to come upon the whole world. It is called the Great Tribulation. So who are the four kings that create this empire? Who will play a prophetic role during the Apocalypse? These world leaders are poised to fulfill their end of the world roles.
