Mark it. Look for it. Believe it. There will be a Turkey-led southern conquest campaign into Egypt. This is going down. This will happen. This campaign is part of the rise of the Antichrist and is a future headline. This series of articles lays out future headlines gathered from Bible prophecy and especially related to the Antichrist’s rise. These are future headlines you can count on.
I don’t feel I understand this prophetic passage enough to say much, but I felt it was important to draw attention to the amount of detail about the rise of the Antichrist found in Daniel 11. This chapter in Daniel holds the most detailed prophecy in Scripture. Like with Daniel 8, Bible commentators predominantly view the prophecy in Daniel 11 to have a split fulfillment, with the first 34 chapters occurring in the past while verses 35-45 tell of the actions of the Antichrist. Unlike Daniel 8, there seems to be greater clarity in the text that this split fulfillment might be intended.
The prophetic details are fascinating. Beginning in verse 40, we’re given a detailed campaign carried out by the Antichrist. He is referred to as the King of the North. As we covered previously, Scripture points to him leading from the modern-day nation of Turkey. In this passage, it appears there are two coalitions — one from the north led by the Antichrist and one from the south. Egypt is one of the nations from the south mentioned, but it’s not limited to that nation. In this prophecy, the Antichrist goes south conquering land, including Egypt. Here is the prophecy from Daniel, I have added the modern-day equivalents of the nations listed:
“At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North (Antichrist) will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. He will also invade the Beautiful Land (Israel). Many countries will fall, but Edom (Jordan), Moab (Jordan) and the leaders of Ammon (Jordan) will be delivered from his hand. He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans (Libya) and Cushites (Sudan) in submission. But reports from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will set out in a great rage to destroy and annihilate many. He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at the beautiful holy mountain (Jerusalem). Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him.” (Dan. 11:40-45 NIV).
This campaign of conquest of the Antichrist happens at the end of the age. The prophecy of it reveals many future headlines. Therefore, we should expect to see future headlines like:
• Egypt and other nations in the southern part of the Middle East form coalition.
• Southern Middle East Coalition opposes Turkey’s new leader.
• Middle East divided as Ottoman Empire/Islamic Caliphate Revives.
• Turkey’s New Leader Invades Israel, further expanding this new Islamic State.
• Jordan joins the new Turkey-led Islamic State.
• Egypt falls to this new Turkey-led Islamic State.
• Libya and Sudan have fallen to the invading Turkish forces.
• After conquering much of the Middle East, Turkey’s new leader relocates capital to Israel.
