Erdogan official revealed as the Antichrist

By Craig C. White

On July 24, 2020 Turkish President Erdogan sat in the 1500 year old Hagia Sophia Cathedral in Istanbul, Turkey showing himself that he is greater than the Christian God. According to 2Thessalonians this is how the Antichrist will be officially revealed. Erdogan official revealed himself as being the Antichrist.

It’s true that the Antichrist will desecrate the temple in Jerusalem during the second 3 1/2 year period of the seven year long Tribulation period. But I think that 2Thessalonians is describing a separate event. 2Thessalonians doesn’t identify the temple of God as being located in Jerusalem. 2Thessalonians also doesn’t mention the desecration of the temple. 2Thessalonians also doesn’t mention the stopping of the daily sacrifice.

2Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Another thing to consider is that the abomination of desolation will stand in the Holy place but the Antichrist will sit in the temple of God. Turkish President Erdogan sat on the floor as he recited the Quran in the dedication service of the Hagia Sophia as a mosque.

I think that the temple of God mentioned in 2Thessalonians is other than the temple in Jerusalem. I think that the temple of God mentioned in 2Thessalonians is the Hagia Sophia which is the most significant Christian Cathedral in the history of the world. Turkish President Erdogan just sat in the Hagia Sophia revealing himself as the Antichrist.

  1. Craig,

    If what you are saying has happened, then should we expect to see a radical change in the behavior, speech, and demeanor of Erdogan in the very near future? You are making a good case, but I still wonder why Paul would refer to any other place other than the known “Temple of God” during the time of his writings. If the first rule of Biblical interpretation is to interpret scripture with scripture, then why would Paul who would have had no knowledge of a world renown “Christian or Catholic Temple of God” speak of a temple other than that which was spoken of by Daniel, Jesus, John and known to his readers. This seems similar to the claim by some that the antichrist will sit on the Pope’s thrown and proclaim himself to be God. Also, the Jews are the ones who will believe that the antichrist is replacing the Hebrew God of their temple. I also thought you believed that the rapture of the church would happen simultaneously with the fall of satan. I’m wrestling with this one brother, and will keep watching and praying. You sound convinced and you know I respect your teaching. I am also convinced that America’s days are numbered, and I’m not so sure that America will be a significant part of the final days of prophecy concerning the things we are watching for. I hope I’m wrong, but I was reading the first part of James 5 this morning, which most blow right by and go to the “prayer of faith.”


    1. The term temple of God is really the only bit of evidence that 2Thessalonians provides that would lead us to think that Paul is identifying the temple in Jerusalem. Other than that there are no similarities to the abomination of desolation. The Antichrist will sit in the temple of God. The abomination will stand in the Holy place. In 2Thessalonians there is no mention of all of the commotion that accompanies the invasion of Jerusalem.

      Think about it. The apostle Paul is telling the early Church when the Tribulation will begin. The abomination of desolation will happen on the day that the Antichrist will invade Jerusalem. That day begins Jerusalem’s great Tribulation. Why didn’t the apostle Paul just say that the Tribulation will begin when the Antichrist invades Jerusalem? The event of the Antichrist sitting in the temple of God precedes the Tribulation.

      I saw a speech by Erdogan shortly after he sat in the Hagia Sophia. He said that western civilization was over and that Turkey would fight until the last Turk gave his life to expand Turkey’s empire. I don’t know how much crazier a person can get.

      I don’t think that the Rapture will happen simultaneously with the fall of Satan but I think that the Rapture will happen very near the time of the fall of Satan.

      David I appreciate your active participation in digesting Bible prophecy. I am not very concerned with proving that Erdogan has revealed himself as the Antichrist at the Hagia Sophia. It will soon prove itself. If It’s true then Turkey will finally launch a major offensive against Hamah and Tell Rifaat (Jeremiah49:23-27), and then against Damascus. After that against Israel (Ezekiel 38).


  2. Craig,

    Yes, I read that speech as well. I also read some of the pieces written by his media minions. They are saying the same things about the significance of Hagia Sophia. So, I think what you are saying is that Paul was penning an event that would identify the antichrist before the abomination of desolation mentioned by Jesus and the prophets. It seems to me that everthing the antichrist will do is a counterfeit of the events in the life of Jesus. Then, Hagia Sophia could be the counterfeit of the baptism of Jesus and confirmation of his sonship by God’s voice, John the Baptist, and the dove descending upon Him. Perhaps we will see the false prophet revealed very soon to say “prepare ye the way for the antichrist” and then satan descending upon the antichrist. Have you ever thought about one of the leading Imaans being the false prophet. However, I suppose they are already false prophets.


    1. I suspect that Fethullah Gulen will be the False Prophet. I think that Erdogan and Gulen have planned this all along. Fethullah Gulen has promised his followers that he would return to Turkey one day as the head Imam of the Turkish Caliphate.


  3. Mr. Craig,

    In video, you said that we must watch at this very short end-time. Could you explain more detail about how to watch correctly as Jesus expectation and any guidance in the Bible about the right watching? So that When our Lord Jesus comes, we will not be ashamed.

    Appreciate your advice.


  4. HI

    the Turks genocide of a million Christians after WW1 Armenians un armed people killed with no remorse.

    THAT NO ONE TALKS ABOUT as Hitler said [refer You tube Hitler was Paranoid and lost the War.



  5. Disturbing and exciting! I was particularly intrigued by how you speculated that the comet Newsome (Sorry for mangling the name) could be linked to satan’s fall. Wow! A tremendous development! Grace to you!


    1. Hi Brian. Yes we should take this seriously. Erdogan has officially been revealed as the Antichrist. That means that the Tribulation is at hand.


  6. I notice on your map you have Turkey coming down by land.

    Didn’t Antiochus Epiphanes come down by sea and attack Egypt first, then head up to Israel?

    It says many nations, not a few, and Jordan will escape.


    1. Hi Lisa. I am impressed that you know that Antiochus Epiphanies attacked Jerusalem by way of Egypt. I think that Turkey will attack Jerusalem in much the same way. The overthrow of Jerusalem will happen during the middle of the seven year Tribulation period. That is when the abomination of desolation will be set up in the holy place and that is when the Antichrist will stop the temple sacrifices.

      However! Turkey will attack northern Israel (Ezekiel38) long before it invades Jerusalem. That Turkish led invasion will happen after Turkey destroys Damascus. Turkey will lead the forces that are now fighting in Syria into the Golan Heights of northern Israel. Jesus will return to stop them and to take away his Church.
