With over 99 percent of ballots in, a nationwide referendum in Turkey granting President Recep Erdogan constitutional power to rule by decree has passed.  Erdogan will likely rule for the remainder of his current term, which ends in Fall 2019, and then a second term ending in Fall 2024.  In other words, the most powerful man in the Muslim world, whose nation lies at the crossroads of the ancient Roman Empire and the Middle Eastern empires, will rule the second-largest standing army in NATO as dictator for a period of seven years.  Many Muslims already identify him as their supreme political leader and the only legitimate Caliph.

All the ancient empires that Daniel saw in his visions, including ancient Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome, ruled over the areas of both modern Turkey and Israel.  Turkey remained at the heart of the Roman Empire (Byzantium) long after the western "leg" fell into ruin and Turkey also remained at the helm of the Islamic Caliphate from 1517 to 1917.

I now find it hard to dismiss the possibility that Erdogan is the antichrist or perhaps Gog.  Time will soon tell.  And to be clear, according to 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, the antichrist (a.k.a. the man of lawlessness) will not be revealed until the Church is taken out of the way via the rapture.

As they say, if you see people decorating for Christmas you know that Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  So if you see someone ascending to power who could conceivably be a key prophetic player like Gog or the antichrist, how much nearer are we to being gathered to Christ?
