Erdogan Gains Virtually Unlimited Power to Dictate

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?

Notice that even at the very end of “time,” which refers to man-led history, the king of the South and the king of the North will still exist. This time, their common enemy will be Antichrist though. The king of the South still refers to the area due south of Israel, which is Egypt (though it may have a different name by then, the geography remains the same) and the king of the North will still be housed in the area that today is still known as Syria. These two kings will decide it’s time for a mutiny. They don’t like what he’s doing and they certainly don’t like being under his command and answering to him.
