I haven't read this with any deep study so I don't know how convincing his arguments are, but it seems an interesting take on current events regarding prophecy. Feel free to support his theory or criticise it.
The devil always uses peace when he intends war just as Cain invited Abel to the peace table in the fields, then he slew him. But the plans of the devil always works in reverse. No matter what the devil concocts, God eventually defeats him. Killing able was sad, but killing Jesus was God’s checkmate to the devil.
Today the devil still plays the same old chess game by advancing his “peace” bishops. Several news articles grabbed my attention this morning, some of which was about Turkey announcing “peace” while other articles show Turkey conspiring to make war in Syria.
Turkey aspiring for peace while planning war is one of the signatures of Antichrist. Reuters just posted a headline that reads:
Turkey’s Kurdish peace process key to Erdogan’s presidential hopes
he local election results have brought him much closer to advancing the peace process and taking decisive steps. After this the process will accelerate, new concrete steps will be taken,” a senior member of his office told Reuters adding “If Prime Minister Erdogan decides to be a candidate for the presidency, the Kurds will give him serious support.”
Indeed. In order to find a peaceful solution to the Kurdish question, the Turkish government made its most important tactical move last year and entered into direct negotiations with Abdullah Öcalan, the PKK leader serving a life sentence. For the 2013 Nevruz celebration, a letter from Öcalan was read out to the public in which he declared the end of the armed struggle and the beginning of a new political era. The PKK responded positively to this call and declared a ceasefire.
Erdogan’s 45 percent victory in the local elections needs the Kurdish votes. When Erdoğan runs for president and by making a false peace treaty with the Kurds, he can reach 51 percent.
False peace is the key for Turkey’s Neo-Ottomanist success. Turkey’s peace playing is needed to catapult itself as a major global player in the region. It plans to become a nuclear power and one of the top economies by 2023.
But it is by “peace” that Turkey is deceiving many.
(then skipping a bit....)
TURKEY WILL FACE RUSSIA
In the next decade, what we will see is Turkey’s further outreach extend into the Caucasus converting them into pawns. Turkey and the majority of the Central Asia and the Caucasus region (CAC) have remained thoroughly invested in their Islamic identity, which will be a unifying factor for the Ottoman aspiration.
Much of the Russian southern republics (C.I.S) were lost and these will begin to unite under Turkish hegemony. It has been Turkish groups, Diyanet and the Hizmet movement, that have been among the most successful in the predominately Turkic countries of the CAC. Turkey’s greatest influence among the Turkic populations of the post-Soviet world derives not from their common ethno-linguistic roots, but from the success of Turkey’s Islamic religious outreach.
But Turkey’s plans to expand into the Caucasus and the Middle East will eventually alarm Russia. Even as we see today, Turkey wants to advance its power in Syria. Russia didn’t stand idle. Russia is now defying the U.S. and Turkey in Syria by sending more and deadlier arms to help Bashar al-Assad score a string of advances against insurgents.
Putin is also arming Egypt and is developing a good relationship with Assisi. He is defying Turkey, which supports the Muslim Brotherhood.
We already see that the two nations, Turkey and Russia will become major rivals in which Christian Russia will eventually crush Muslim Turkey.
Why Russia will eventually defeat Turkey is simple. Antichrist is called the King of the North. If we are correct, and Turkey is the Antichrist nation, Turkey will eventually be crushed from a nation north of it.
Prophecy students need to pay close attention to Daniel 11:44, that “news from the north” will trouble the King of the North (Antichrist) and then he (Antichrist) will come to his end and no one will come to his defense. (v. 45)
One needs to pay close attention to every word in Scripture.
So what is north of Turkey past the Black Sea?
Answer: Crimea. That would be Russia. You can even add Europe.
Prophecy is as if the devil plays chess but God always wins. While many were upset about Putin’s incursion in Crimea, it is a chip in God’s hand and not Gog’s.
