The Ottoman Empire is spreading
Syria now Egypt next
By Craig C. White
Northeastern Syria now belongs to Turkey. Just like Turkey took over much of northwestern Syria; Turkey invaded and chased out the local population, mostly Kurdish. Turkey built roads and power lines. Turkey appointed local magistrates. Turkey instituted Turkish curriculum in Syrian schools. Now Turkey is doing it all over again in northeastern Syria. Turkey is bringing Syrian refugees from other parts of Syria to repopulate the Kurdish territory that the Kurds have been driven out of by Turkey.
Turkey is recapturing territory that was once held by the Ottoman Empire. This is the wounded head (or world empire) that is healed during the end time (Revelation 13:3).
Jeremiah 49:23 tells us where Turkey will strike next. Jeremiah says that when the two northwestern Syria cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. Tell Rifaat is called Arpad in Jeremiah 49:23 below.
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.
Turkey is already targeting Hamah and Tell Rifaat. Turkish proxy forces (Al-Qaeda and the Al-Qaeda manned Free Syrian Army) are fighting the Syrian Army in Hamah. The Turkish Army is already amassed near Hamah in the adjacent Idlib province. Tell Rifaat is the last remaining Kurdish held city in northwestern Syria. Turkey has issued a decree to Tell Rifaat. Pull the Kurds out or we are coming in.
The Bible tells us where else Turkey will attack. Daniel chapter 11 says that Turkey will conquer Egypt by land and by sea. Turkish President Erdogan plans to reinstate Muslim Brotherhood leadership in Egypt. Turkey is now building their first large naval personnel carrier. Last week Turkey laid claim to gas exploration rights in Greece, Cypress, and Egypt waters. News reports are beginning to surface of the possibility of a naval battle between Turkey and Egypt.
Dan 11:40 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.
Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
Ezekiel chapter 38 says that Turkey will lead Iran, Libya, and Sudan into Israel. In the following verse, Ethiopia is really describing the land south of Egypt. Today Sudan is south of Egypt.
Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
All of these nations are now fighting in Syria. All of these nations are allied with Turkey. After Turkey destroys Damascus they will lead these forces into northern Israel. Understand the signs of the time. The Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire is being reconstituted. Turkey is the end time invader of Israel. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist.
