Will Turkey help destroy America Rev 17:12? I did a post that identified America as the Babylon of the Bible. In it I point out ten nations that would become antagonists of Babylon. They would eventually destroy it. There is also an accompanying YouTube video I urge you to watch also. The Bible relates that GOD will employ the use of these nations to bring judgment on America.
America was born out of seven European nations nations who initiated the slave trade and colonization of Africa. I identified them as Britain, France, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Spain.
The Berlin Conference of November 15, 1884
At the Berlin conference of 1884, eight other countries were in attendance: These included the United States, Austria- Hungary, Denmark, the Netherlands, Ottoman Empire Russia, Sweden, and Norway. These countries however were unable to take up any colony in Africa.
Subsequently, we learned that America was technically one of the seven, being of the same Western European stock. Because we would read the following:
Rev 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
America became a superpower in 1898 and reigned over the seven. Technically they all ruled over the world with America over them. We also read a related verse:
Rev 17:9 Here is the mind of the one having wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains where the woman sits upon them
The term “sits upon them” indicates that America would have dominion over these seven kingdoms who are the head of the beast (Satan). We, therefore, identified those seven countries that had a slave master relationship with the true people of Israel:
Will Turkey help destroy America as one of the Ten horns in Rev 17:12?
But GOD introduced another entity in Revelation 17:7. These were the Ten nations that GOD had employed to destroy America. We read the following verses:
Rev 17:7 And the angel said to me, Why did you marvel? I will tell to you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast, of the one bearing her, of the one having the seven heads and the ten horns; Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, ones which not yet received a kingdom, but receive authority as kings one hour with the beast Rev 17:13 These have one opinion, and they give the power and their authority to the beast. Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which you saw upon the beast, these shall detest the harlot, and they shall cause her being made desolate, and shall make her naked, and shall devour her flesh, and shall incinerate her by fire Rev 17:17 For God gave to their hearts to do his design, and to do one design, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
The facts are undeniable. The Bible speaks of ten nations that will become adversaries to Babylon in the latter days. GOD will employ them to bring judgment on America and the Americans. The question is will Turkey help destroy America as it indicates in Rev 17:12?
The Case for Turkey being one of the ten horns to help destroy America in Rev 17:12-17, Is very substantive
I do not propose to name the 10 countries that will destroy America. The Bible does not list them. But current world events show there are no shortages of potential mortal enemies for America. But you could close your eyes and pick out adversaries such as Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran. Iran is actively seeking nuclear weapons for some time now.
Other nuclear-armed suspects are Pakistan and India. India is currently at loggerhead with the Americans. This is because of the arms deals they cut with Russia. We also know Pakistan is not a friend of the West. But even though Pakistan and India are currently antagonists both are part of the Chinese-led Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
As stated earlier, there are no shortages of enemies for America. Because a country today might not be a direct adversary does not mean they won’t become one in the future. This leads us to the case of Turkey. What makes this so much more intriguing is the fact that Turkey is part of The North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This organization, led by the USA is on a whole today is antagonistic to Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran.
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)
NATO is the military alliance formed to ensure the continued hegemony of America, Canada, and their Northern and Western European brethren over the rest of the World. It was first formed in April 1949 with 12 original members: two North American nations (the USA and Canada). and 10 states in Northern or Western Europe: Belgium, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, United Kingdom.
Five of these countries were from the seven slave-trading/Colonialist countries. The other two slave trading/Colonialist Germany and Spain joined in 1955 and 1982 respectively.
To join, this entity one must be a European country. That country must adapt European principles; must concern itself with the security of the Euro-Atlantic area; and have a Market economy (Capitalism). They should supposedly enshrine democratic principles.
If will Turkey help destroy America Rev 17:12? then how did Turkey get to join NATO?
For me, the obvious answer is that GOD placed them there. But, the 1952 admission of Turkish 1membership in NATO, brings up some interesting questions. For one thing, how could a country some 2,000 miles to the east of the Atlantic Ocean — find itself in an organization called the “North Atlantic Treaty Organization.?” The Fact is, that 97% of Turkey’s territory lies within Asia. Only about 3% of it lies in Europe.
Another question is why a country with so dissimilar in culture and religion coexist with the rest who all Judeo-Christian entities. Islam is the largest religion in Turkey. More than 99 percent of the population is Muslim, mostly Sunni. On the notion of Turkey acceding to Democratic ideals, one notes the various military take-over since 1952. 1960 Turkish coup d’état; the 1962 Turkish coup d’état attempt; the 1971 Turkish military memorandum; 1980 Turkish coup d’état; and the 1993 alleged Turkish military coup
Then arise the question of Turkey’s allegiance to NATO which we shall discuss later.
A brief Turkish history
At its peak in the 1500s, the Ottoman Empire was one of the biggest military and economic powers in the world. It controlled a large expanse in Asia Minor, but also much of southeastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. Thought the centuries the empire started a decline as people revolted and kicked them out.
Their final undoing was to side with Germany in World War I. From history, we know that the Allied powers (USA, France, Great Britain, and Russia) won the war. Therefore, In October 1918, the Turks signed an armistice with Great Britain, and quit the war. That was essentially the end of the Ottoman Turks empire because they had to cede any remaining overseas possessions. Secondly, some European countries vied for control of the portion of the empire in Asia minor. The Turks however manage to fight them off and kept what was to be modern-day Turkey.
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
Any mention of modern-day Turkey would be bereft without the mention of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Ataturk was an army officer that founded the independent Republic of Turkey. He served as its first president from 1923 to 1938 at his death. Atatürk singularly implemented reforms that forcefully secularized and westernized the country away from its Islamic and middle eastern traditions. He replaced Islamic law (sharia) with European civil codes. Then he also introduced the Latin-based Turkish alphabet, replacing the old Ottoman (Arabic-based) Turkish alphabet.
However, with all that effort today 98% of Turks are Muslims and lean towards the middle east instead of Europe. That is reflected in the fact that in early December 2021 the country was rebranded. It became Türkiye. A move to further distance itself from the ubiquitous Latin term “Turkey.”
If will Turkey help destroy America Rev 17:12? then why did the Americans and western Europeans admit them into NATO?
In 1952 when NATO admitted Türkiye, they were aware of all these misgivings. But they admitted them nevertheless because it made sense to have Türkiye as a member.
It was simply Cold War political and military-strategic concerns. At the time, President Harry Truman offered membership to Türkiye to contain Russia (Soviet) and Communist expansion worldwide. It helped that Türkiye also gave the alliance a foothold into the Middle East. But Türkiye never had an affinity towards Western Europeans.
Why Turkey is one of the ten horns of Rev 17:12 that will help destroy America
Russia is one of the two main adversaries of Babylon (America). You can see the stand-off between them today over Ukraine. As we speak today they are inching closer to a major conflagration. I can assure you that the time is not yet. It will be a little later down the line when GOD sets all the moving parts in motion.
As a member of NATO, Türkiye should play a big part in containing Russia. But as it turned out, Turkey has played adversary more towards America.
Türkiye nearly comes to blow with Greece another NATO member
In 1974, for the first time in its history, two members of NATO nearly came to blow. Türkiye invaded and ceded part of the Greek ally Island of Cyprus. America and the rest of NATO-backed Greece. After Türkiye threatened to seriously kick Greece ass, they backed down averting a NATO problem.
Türkiye denied access to American troops to attack Iraq
During the 1990–91 Gulf Türkiye allowed America to fly bombing raids on Iraq from Türkiye’s Incirlik Air Base War; But in 2003, Türkiye refused to station U.S. troops on its territory to attack Baghdad.
Türkiye allowed ISIS fighters use of its territory to cross into Iraq and Syria
It is an open secret that the Turkish government did little to rein in ISIS fighters transiting its territory to join their members in Iraq and Syria
ISIS fighters allowed through Türkiye on their way to Europe
Another open secret is that ISIS members even transition through Türkiye on to attack European countries, NATO members.
Türkiye attacks USA allies (Kurds)
On Oct 9, 2019, Türkiye Launches an Offensive Against U.S.-Backed Syrian Militia (Kurds). President Trump abandons US allies, (the Kurds) to Türkiye. The United States announced sanctions. It aimed at Türkiye’s defense and energy ministries. It also personally targeted three senior Turkish officials, including the powerful interior minister.
Türkiye buys Radar defense system from Russia the perceived enemy of NATO
Türkiye paid America $1.4 billion as a down payment for some F-35s fighter planes. Washington blocked the sale after Türkiye bought the Russian S-400 missile defense systems. They argued that an ally could not both participate in the U.S. F-35 fighter jet program and purchase the Russian system.
The F-35 is the most high-tech and expensive U.S. fighter jet ever developed. Washington allows its NATO allies to purchase and operate them. But the F-35s greatest strength is its stealth capabilities. Since the Russian S-400 system has advanced radar capabilities, many in the United States feared Russia would gain indirect access to the F-35 programming through Türkiye. The Russians could use it to enhance the efficacy of the S-400 defense radar capabilities.
Wouldn’t that be obvious to both Türkiye and Russia? Therefore, if the Turks are buying the Russian S-400 missile Defense System, who would they be deployed against. It is the Americans. Wouldn’t the Turks want to send one to Russia so they could upgrade the S-400 to be better capable of defending Türkiye from an attack from the USA? Doesn’t that make sense? The question is whose side are the Turks on, anyway. Türkiye appears to be an ally of Russia today than a member of NATO.
Turkey now wants to acquire nuclear weapons.If they will help destroy America Rev 17:12 that would makes sense
Even though America already deploys some 50 bombs on Turkish territory. Türkiye has its nuclear ambitions.
Complaining that nuclear-armed nations retain an unacceptable monopoly on nuclear weapons, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan used a recent Turkish holiday to suggest that his nation should acquire its nuclear arsenal. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaking in 2019 at the centennial of the Turkish independence movement said that:
“Several countries have missiles with nuclear warheads, not one or two. But [they tell us that] we can’t have them. This I cannot accept,” In fact, many developed countries do not have nuclear weapons. Only nine countries—the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, and Israel—possess nuclear weapons, with Washington and Moscow owning 93 percent of them”.
Türkiye is telling the world that it intends to build nuclear weapons. If Turkey will help destroy America Rev 17:12 it would makes sense that they should acquire nuclear weapons. Though I might add that all the ten countries do not necessarily need to have nuclear weapons. Ballistic weapons are just fine.
Erdogan Orders Removal of 10 Ambassadors
On Oct. 23, 2021, Erdogan ordered the Removal of 10 Ambassadors: the US, Canada, France Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands Norway Sweden, New Zealand & Finland. It is interesting to note all except New Zealand & Finland are NATO members
When everything isconsidered together it is hard not to suspect that Turkey will be one of the nations to help destroy America Rev 17:12?
