Turkey is building its first large scale amphibious assault ship
Before the middle of the Tribulation, Turkey will attack Egypt with “many ships”.
By Craig C. White
The Prophet Daniel says that the Antichrist will conquer many nations in North Africa. Daniel says that the Antichrist will conquer Egypt in particular. Daniel 11:40 says that the Antichrist will come against Egypt with many ships. Today Turkey is constructing its first large scale amphibious assault ship. This new landing vessel will hold 1,200 troops, 150 vehicles, eight helicopters, plus three unmanned aircraft. Turkey is located just 300 miles to the north of Egypt across the Mediterranean Sea. This new landing ship will be just what Turkey needs to attack Egypt.
Almost every Bible prophecy teacher agrees that the “king of the south” in Daniel 11:40 represents Egypt. I am here to tell you that the “king of the north” represents Turkey! Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist! He has already promised to reinstate ousted Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi in Egypt. Turkey will attack Egypt with “many ships” and bring Egypt back under Muslim Brotherhood rule.
Dan 11:40-43 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. 41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. 42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
Elected Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi was thrown out of office by the Egyptian Army. The Muslim Brotherhood was removed from power in Egypt. They are now waiting inside of Turkey to try to overthrow the Egyptian government again. Turkey is helping them. Now even political analysts are seeing that Turkey is very likely to attack Egypt soon.
According to Daniel chapter 11 the Antichrist will conquer Egypt along with several other North African nations. Daniel 11:41 says that the Antichrist will then “enter also into the glorious land”; meaning that after the Antichrist conquers North Africa he will also invade Israel. Most Bible teachers think that the Antichrist will invade Jerusalem and Judea in the middle of the seven years long Tribulation period. That means that the Turkish conquest of Egypt will happen just before the halfway point of the Tribulation period. The Tribulation period is designed by God to chasten Israel for its unbelief and it is also meant for judging the nations with wars, natural disasters, famines, and disease. The Rapture of Church age believers is designed to rescue Christians from this terrible time of trouble. Turkish President Erdogan wants his new landing ship to be ready in four years. That means that the seven years long Tribulation period could begin in six months! If the Rapture happens before the Tribulation begins then the day of the Resurrection and Rapture must be very near.
As you may know Turkish President Erdogan recently forced Turkish Prime Minister Davutoglu to resign. Davutoglu and Erdogan did not have big differences of opinion but Erdogan didn’t like the fact that Davutoglu had an opinion at all. Erdogan is quickly replacing Davutoglu with his long time ally and yes-man Binali Yildirim. Yildirim is a maritime engineer and has overseen many highway, railway, airport, and public infrastructure projects. As Turkey’s new Prime Minister Binali Yildirim will not offer any ideas of his own. Binali Yildirim will not oppose Erdogan at all. But Yildirim could be the right man to rapidly advance Turkey’s naval capabilities over the next few years.
Read this article in Al Monitor Do you really need to know the new Turkish PM?
Turkey President Erdogan is the Antichrist! He will conquer Syria and destroy Damascus. Then he will lead an invasion into northern Israel. Afterwards Turkey will conquer Egypt and even enter into Jerusalem. The Church is oblivious to the end time events that are happening right under their end time noses. It is High Time to Awake for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

Do you think the rapture could happen in 2017 or at the end of 2016 ?
Hi Sergio. I don’t think that there is anything preventing the Rapture from happening at any time. I think that the Rapture will happen before the Tribulation period begins. I think that the Tribulation period could begin in about one year but it could take longer. I think that the Tribulation period will begin after Turkey invades northwestern Syria and then destroys Damascus. After that I think that Turkey will lead an invasion into the Golan Heights. I think that that invasion into Israel may prompt the seven year term peace treaty that begins the Tribulation period. I think that the seven year term peace treaty will be signed by Erdoğan, lsrael, and the International community.
Thank you! Numbers 6:24
Great article, Craig! Thank you for your continued research and writing.
Egypt may have just pushed a little by offering Gulen sanctuary.
