Turkey has been pursuing a policy called “strategic depth doctrine” or “neo-Ottomanism,” which is a push to resurrect at least part of the old Ottoman Empire. As can be seen in the image of the map of the Ottoman Empire, numerous areas highlighted in Ezekiel 38 were once part of that empire. Will it rise again? Certainly, in part, it appears likely and with the greater power just given to Erdogan, either he or a successor will likely be able to move with greater speed and clarity toward this new “caliphate” (a geographic area controlled by a caliph in Islam).
Though this life is often filled with storms, difficulties, and problems, the Christian is on the only path that ends well. Christians, due to their faith in God and His extended grace and forgiveness, will end this life with the greatest reward of all. Our path – and only our path – leads to heaven, where God dwells, where we will not only never sin again, but will never even be tempted to sin. The path that we are on is often difficult because it is opposed to the world’s system. That alone creates the drama, the problems, the issues that normally would not be there and will not exist in eternity.
