Ezekiel 38:1-3 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer and all his hordes; Beth-Togarmah from the uttermost parts of the north with all his hordes—many peoples are with you.

For Scripture support indicating these areas being Turkey, see the link below.

It has been one week (July 22, 2016) after the failed coup in Turkey. A state of emergency has been declared in Turkey. Can you say “Power Grab”!

President Erdogan has fired or suspended approximately 50,000 people in the government crackdown.

Here is a brief list of those fired and/or detained. Statistics provided most by the state run news agency Anadolu.

118 generals and admirals detained.

8,777 Ministry of Interior personnel (police) suspended.

100 Turkish intelligence service personnel captured.

21,738 teachers in private institutions licenses revoked.

1,577 university deans have been asked to resign.

2,745 judges and prosecutors listed for detention. –

24 radio and television companies’ licenses revoked.

Some of the police and military personnel have been detained and stripped down to their underwear. Once detained in a large building, they are subjected to a talk from the president regarding their actions in the attempted coup.

Erdogan is now calling to reinstitute the death penalty.


In the Muslim world, President Erdogan is being hailed as a messianic figure. Sunni Muslim scholars have declared Erdogan the supreme leader of the Muslim world. A letter of declaration was sent by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, president of the World Federation of Muslim Scholars. The letter was viewed as heaven sent. It states:  “Allah is with you and all Arab and Muslim nations are with you including all freedom loving people are with you. We, all the Muslim scholars, in the four corners of the globe, are with you. The Angel Gabriel and the righteous one [in heaven] are with you. And after that the angels will be revealed.”

Some see President Erdogan as the promised Mahdi, the Muslim Messianic figure.

It appears Turkey is turning to fundamental Islam with more central control.
