It Keeps Coming Up Turkey! (Updated Again!)

I have gone on record here, and many of you have read it, saying that Turkey will be the country of origin for the Antichrist. Read this (HT: Paul Grabill) chilling account of what has purportedly been going on behind the scenes between Turkey, Israel and the U.S. over the last 15 years. 

Now this bit of sad news hits the headlines. Even though it's been a long time since royalty had any impact or influence in Turkish affairs, I have to wonder whether things are not converging to a ripe moment for Turkey and the world. Could a new, populist leader arise out of nowhere and repeat the type and ultimately fulfill that which Daniel spoke so long ago?

And then, there's this. The Antichrist, according to my interpretation of scripture, will start out as a Muslim. That portion of the world (at least the Shia) are primed, looking forward to the imminent arrival of the Mahdi. All things taken together, my theory doesn't look so far fetched in the real world after all-- wouldn't you say?

  1. No, it doesn't!!! And just think...we are paying and buying all of it! I don't think much would shock me after the events of the past year! Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

  2. Right on SLW-

    Events are moving rather quickly now aren't they. I have no doubt now that the Anti-christ is going to start out as the Muslim Mahdi and satisfy the Koran requirements.

    What is going to really be interesting is who is going to be his 'false prophet'--If they stick to a Koranic scenario he is going to pretend to be Jesus.

    I'm quite sure it will be the Pope at the time, but that needn't be seen as totally out of line with what you suggested. The Pope is already seen by those in his camp as Christ's vicar, perhaps that Pope will claim something even more incarnational.

    Thought you might be interested in what I just wrote about Turkey today:

    Right in line with what you are expecting. Kinda scary--worse than even Halloween.

    If you don't want the link showing on your blog feel free to delete.
