President Abdullah Gul of Turkey wants the Egyptian military to release Mohamed Morsi from house arrest and then reinstate him as the president of the country. I asked Bob Maginnis our broadcast partner out of Washington, D.C. if that could happen.
Bob Maginnis: No it's not going to happen. The military is not about to put a Muslim Brotherhood leader back in there. They understand the ramifications are serious and I think it's foolish of us to send Secretary Burns and Mr. McCain and Mr. Lindsey over there to even try to suggest. The Egyptians have lost faith in the US because of the missteps of the Obama administration over the last couple of years so it doesn't really matter what Erdogan or any of the others say, the Egyptians are going to do what they want to do and I think that the chief of staff is probably going to continue what he's been doing for the last several months.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The strong military powers in Egypt and Turkey through their actions may well be setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The military coup in Egypt that took Muslim Brotherhood leader and president of Egypt Mohamed Morsi out of power may well have encouraged the strong military in Turkey to try to overthrow the Erdogan government as was the case in Egypt. The Turkish military, custodians of what they refer to as a secular Islam, has removed Tayyip Erdogan, the Prime Minister of Turkey from political office before and may well do it again.
Any student of Bible prophecy knows that both Egypt and Turkey play key roles in the end times scenario that's found in Bible prophecy. For Egypt that would be Daniel 11:40-43 and for Turkey, Ezekiel 38:2, 6. These passages of Scripture lay out how a coalition of nations with these two major players, Turkey and Egypt participants as they attack Israel with the desire to totally eliminate the Jewish state from the Middle East and these prophecies say this will happen in the last days, Daniel 11 and Ezekiel 38.
Forcing Mohamed Morsi and Tayyip Erdogan out of office may well set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
