How can this be?
Turkish President Erdogan revealed as Antichrist
By Craig C. White
Turkish President Erdogan revealed himself as the Antichrist in the Hagia Sophia Cathedral in Istanbul.
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.
Christians have been asking me how can the Hagia Sophia be “the temple of God” in 2Thessalonians? First of all, the Greek word that is translated as “temple” in 2Thessalonians 2:4 can refer to any temple or shrine so don’t get hung up thinking that it can only refer to the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.
The Hagia Sophia is called a temple in this seemingly prophetic Turkish poem. Resurrection of an empire and conquest are its themes. These are the primary goals of Satan.
“Hagia Sophia! O great temple, do not worry, the descendants of the conqueror will destroy all idols, turn you into a mosque, perform ablution with their tears, and make prostration between your walls, and the cheering and magnification will repeat among your domes. And this will be the second conquest, and the poets will write about the epics, and the call to prayer will again be heard and the sounds of enlargement from those silent orphan minarets, and the balconies of your minarets will glow in the lights in the sanctification of God and the honor of his prophet, so that people will think that the conqueror has resurrected again. The second will be resurrected after death. This is sure, do not worry, and these days are close, perhaps tomorrow or closer to tomorrow. ”
By Turkish poet Osman Yuksel Serdinci, who was sentenced to death in the early 1980s because of his struggle to reopen Hagia Sophia as a mosque.
The Hagia Sophia is the perfect place to reveal the Antichrist. The Ottoman Empire converted it into a mosque. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire the Hagia Sophia was turned into a museum. By turning the Hagia Sophia back into a mosque Turkish President Erdogan is proclaiming himself as the Sultan of a new Ottoman Empire. A renewed Ottoman Empire will oppress Israel during the Tribulation. Satan has been the influence behind every world empire.
Pastor Steve Cioccolanti recognizes the significance of the conversion of the Hagia Sophia into a mosque. He recognizes that the Antichrist will come from a revived Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire. I agree with Pastor Steve Cioccolanti. Two witnesses have confirmed this for you.
Turkish President Erdogan has revealed himself as the Antichrist by sitting in the Hagia Sophia exalting himself above the Christian God. A red line has been drawn for Christians who insist on looking for a European Antichrist. Opportunity to rightly watch for Christ’s return is dwindling. The Tribulation is at our doorstep.
Pastor Cioccolanti recognizes that Erdogan’s subjugation of the Hagia Sophia is a monumental event. But this isn’t the first thing that identifies Turkish President Erdogan as being the Antichrist.
Erdogan is Magog the chief prince among the provinces of Turkey. According to Ezekiel chapter 38 Turkey will lead the Islamic nations into Israel.
Eze 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
Erdogan has built the largest palace in the world in Ankara. He is not honoring Allah but Erdogan is honoring the God of Ottoman conquest in his palace with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things
Dan 11:38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
Erdogan has built several mosques in Istanbul including the largest in Turkey that is dedicated to the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. Erdogan has built the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in Istanbul. Better look on a map. There is no other place on earth that could better be described as between the seas than the Bosporus.
Dan 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
The head of the seventh world empire will be healed. That means that a revived Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire must be the end time empire that will oppress Israel. The head of the Ottoman Empire is being healed in front our eyes. How is it that we can’t see it?
Rev 13:3 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.
Turkish President Erdogan had already fulfilled Bible prophecy that identifies him as the Antichrist. On Friday July 24th 2020 Erdogan was officially revealed as the Antichrist as he sat in the Hagia Sophia exalting himself above the Christian God.
We as Christians are commanded to watch as the day of Jesus’ return approaches. I mean the day of the Rapture.
Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
In order to properly watch we must know what the Bible says. Then we must recognize the signs of our time. I am afraid that very few Christians really do understand what God has been trying to tell them. Many hold odd popularized views that haven’t really been searched out. Many have rebuked me for declaring that the Antichrist has been revealed. There are consequences for holding wrong views. Pretty soon people won’t have the luxury of holding wrong views about Bible prophecy. They will just become victims of it. It’s High Time to Awake!
