What are Turkish President Erdogan’s plans?

Remove Assad. Reinstate Morsi.

By Craig C. White

On November 1, 2015 Turkish President Erdogan’s AKP Party won a majority of seats in the Turkish Parliament. Now that Erdogan has a mandate for his strong arm leadership what does he intend to do? Erdogan’s top priorities are to remove Syrian President Assad from office and replace him with a Muslim Brotherhood ruler. Next Erdogan intends to reinstate ousted Egyptian President Morsi who is also a Muslim Brotherhood figure.

You may say that this is politics as usual but the Bible tells us that both of these things are the actions of the Antichrist!

In the verse below, Jeremiah mentions two cities. Hamath and Arpad are both located in northwestern Syria. These cities are along the path of an invasion launched from Turkey headed towards Damascus. The Antichrist will invade Syria and destroy its capital city of Damascus.

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.

Turkish President Erdogan also wants to reinstate Morsi as President in Egypt. In Daniel chapter 11 the Antichrist is compared to Grecian ruler Antiochus Epiphanies. Like Antiochus Epiphanies the Antichrist will also conquer Egypt. According to Daniel this event happens during the first half of the seven year Tribulation period. That means that the Resurrection and Rapture will happen beforehand!

Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

So Erdogan and Turkey will invade Syria from its northwestern border and destroy Damascus. Turkey will also conquer Egypt. This is what the Bible says. These are also the two major goals of Turkish President Erdogan. Erdogan is the Antichrist. The Rapture will occur before Turkey invades Egypt or perhaps even sooner! I hope that you are paying attention. It is High Time to Awake!

  1. I was always told that we don’t and won’t know who the antichrist is…..how can you be so sure it is Erdogan?



    1. Hi Susan. There is no scripture that says that Church age believers will not see the Antichrist. Turkish President Erdoğan has already fulfilled several Bible prophecies that identify him as the Antichrist. He is poised to fulfill several others. Erdogan is the “chief prince” or primary governor of Turkey identified in Ezekiel chapter 38. He will lead an invasion into Israel. The Resurrection and Rapture happen in order to rescue Christians from the Tribulation. During the Tribulation the Antichrist will become the ruler over the next world empire. He will oppress Israel. During the Tribulation the Antichrist will conquer Egypt by sea. Turkish President Erdoğan is undertaking an ambitious naval building program with the stated goal of reinstating ousted Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi in Egypt. Like the ancient Assyrian kings the Antichrist will conquer Syria and then invade northern Israel. Turkey has just entered Syria and Erdogan says that he won’t leave until the end. Jeremiah 49 : 23 identifies an invasion into northwestern Syria coming from the Turkish border. After this invasion begins Damascus is destroyed. Erdoğan has repeatedly told the world that he wants to remove Syria President Assad from power in Damascus. Erdoğan has also told the Islamic world that the Golan Heights must be taken away from Israel. Like most Bible prophecy, these are the major events of world history especially as they relate to Israel. It makes a lot of sense that the Antichrist will be identifiable before the Tribulation period begins.

  2. Thanks for your diligent and thorough research of the end times. This reminds us, Believers, of the importance to share the wonderful Gospel to the lost during the time we have.


  3. Hi Craig

    Thank you for sharing the insights that I believe the Holy Spirit has given you into day that we are living in and the nearness of the rapture. They are very encouraging.
    My question is, with the recent election in Turkey of the changes that Erdogan proposed to their constitution being passed. Do you think that this will embolden him to be more aggressive in the coming months in his plan to invade Syria and destroy Damascus. And also make him even more arrogant toward the eventual image of him in his role of the antichrist.
    Also do you have any knowledge of his reactions to his election victory.


    1. Hi Ron. Yes of course the referendum on the Turkish constitution giving President Erdogan much more power will embolden him to conquer Syria and to destroy Damascus in order to remove Syrian President Assad. Erdogan has already said that Turkey plans more military incursions into Syria this spring. He has specifically identified the region between Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria. This area is controlled by the Kurds. These are the towns that Jeremiah 49:23 identifies. According to Jeremiah, after Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear reports of a coming invasion then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. Today Arpad is called Tell Rifaat.

      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.
