Bible prophecy is about geopolitics
By Craig C. White
Bible prophecy is about geopolitics, especially concerning the Middle-East since those are the nations that the Bible identifies by name. So if you understand the actions, intentions, and relationships of Middle-Eastern nations then you can easily see how Bible prophecy will unfold.
Dan 11:42 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.
Daniel chapter 11 says that the Antichrist will invade northern Africa by many ships and plunder Egypt. Today Turkish President Erdogan plans to do just that. Turkey is located 300 miles across the Mediterranean Sea from northern Africa. Erdogan has promised to reinstall Muslim Brotherhood leadership in Egypt. He has also promised to retake the geographic territories that once belonged to the Ottoman Empire. Northern Africa was part of that world empire.
Revelation 13:1-3 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
Erdogan plans to re-establish the Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire by the year 2023. Revelation chapter 13 describes this revived world empire as a beast whose head was wounded and then healed. A revived world empire isn’t mystical. It’s just geopolitics.

Excellent break down of geopolitics in the middle east. I check in on Hal Linzey’s site for news articles, and today I read a piece that he wrote concerning the situation with Bibi and Gantz. He did a good job summarizing the history of Israels moddern prime ministers. In short, he lays out a good case for how close Israel might be to having a unfaithful shepherd.
