RUSSIA WILL DEFEAT TURKEY
Today, the Brotherhood is parking in Turkey after being overthrown in Egypt and the Turks will aid the Islamist movement in Egypt to rise against the secularists. The next few years will show this struggle intensify until Turkey invades Egypt. This does not pass without repercussions. Few focus closely to Daniel 11:44, that “news from the north” will trouble the King of the North (Turkey/antichrist).
The Prophecy buffs for years said that Russia is Gog and Magog. And while they had such discussions during the cold war, Russia left communism, then the buffs wrote all sorts of conspiracy theories on the KGB and how they will revert back to communism. Yet Russia has become the only superpower nation which is reverting back to Christianity while Europe and the U.S. are falling away.
Relative to current events, the alliance between Russia and secularist Egypt is strengthening, which is increasingly troubling to the Turks. The outcome of this battle between the King of the North (Antichrist/Turkey) and the troublesome news from north of it (Russia) will be a surprise—in verse 45, he (the antichrist) “shall come to his end, with no one to help him”. Russia will again defeat Turkey. History will repeat itself and it will be the Russo-Turkish Wars all over again. Other allies (Ezekiel 28:7-8) which the Bible says are the “most terrible of the nations” will also join in against Turkey (see Ezekiel 30:5, Lydia).
From a biblical perspective, Russia is against the spirit of antichrist while the U.S. is advancing its cause.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Future Plans With The Turks
The last meeting for the International Muslim Brotherhood was in Turkey. Even the Muslim Brotherhood leaders moved from London to Istanbul due to tightening security measures. In Turkey the mortal wound of the Muslim Brotherhood will be healed.
The new terror plan is to continue using the economic turmoil which they cause.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s new strategy is to weaken Egypt by choking further the tourism industry sending threats to tourists and by choking what remains of national revenue; the Suez Canal. By increasing terrorist attacks on the Canal, the U.S. would be forced to consider peace deals with the Brotherhood since the canal is an important choke point for world economy.
That alongside with working with the Ultras. The Egyptian Ultras network was one of the most organized movements in Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood. The Ultras represents a pressure card against the current regime in Egypt and will drain the police. This group has a link of who will continue the crowds and demonstrations which mean only one fact that the spirit of the Muslim Brotherhood remains.
The plan in Turkey is to diminish the Brotherhood’s work with Takfiris and Salafists. This would give the Brotherhood a façade of moderation. It is likely that a new name be given to a new spring that is more akin to the Turkish model similar to how Erbakan’s movement transformed into Erdogan’s. Erdogan’s ties with the Muslim Brotherhood’s international organization and their mutual interest in restoring “the era of Islamic rule”.
In 1996, Erbakan attempted to facilitate the rise of a new Islamic power, the Eight Islamic countries group, made up of Libya, Iran, Egypt, Pakistan, Indonesia, Nigeria, Bangladesh and Malaysia. Also, the Brotherhood fielded a strong presence at the 2006 celebration of 533 years’ occupying Constantinople.
Istanbul hosted two main conferences; the first was on July 10, it was held at a hotel near Ataturk airport and featured leaders from the Muslim Brotherhood’s international organization, such as Youssef Nada (the offshore tycoon who is one of the main supporters of the Brotherhood),
The influence of Islamism is not ended in Egypt and the future of Egypt will be dire and will continue to face civil unrest (Isaiah 19).
But Turkey’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood and its interest to bully Egypt is not without repercussions. Russia and Turkey will butt-heads over who is to be the superpower in the region, especially since the U.S. seems impotent. We can see already Egypt is the bone that two top dogs are fighting for. On the one hand Putin has been looking to expand Russia’s sphere of influence in the Middle East and was eager to welcome the winner Field Marshal Sisi visiting Moscow this month. On the other hand, Erdogan welcomed the looser, the Muslim Brotherhood.
As the coming of the Antichrist gets closer, Christian persecution gets worse.
Russia is reaping economic benefits by gaining access to a new market in a military context, as reflected in an initial $2 billion deal to supply aircraft and helicopters to Egypt.
Biblically Egypt is significant “… When the slain fall in Egypt, her wealth will be carried away and her foundations torn down” (Ezekiel 30:3-4)
So how will Egypt fall? Egypt will fall to the Antichrist in Daniel 11:40-45 who is the “king of the North”, which is Asia Minor (Turkey) when he attacks Egypt who is the “king of the South” (Dan11,40-42). That the king of the North is Asia Minor, is supported by major authorities of history and the Bible, such as Hippolytus, Lactantius, Jerome and Theodoret of Cyr as well as many renowned modern commentators such as C.F. Keil, Gleason Archer, G.H. Lang, Edward J. Young, Stephen M. Miller.
