Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (pronounced er’-do-wan), the best candidate to be the first horn of the goat, continues to consolidate power. As President, he is supposed to be neutral in regards to any political party per the Turkish constitution. However, a man with ambitions and ego as great as Erdoğan’s must be in control of the party he helped founded, the AKP. The prime minister of Turkey is to be the leader of his party – in this case the ruling party is AKP.
Erdoğan’s ally in the AKP, former Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, has been forced to resign by who the reporter calls the new ottoman sultan – Erdoğan. Davutoglu was overly ambitious which is a mistake with Erdoğan who is seeking greater power.
The new Prime Minister is Binali Yildirim. It seems now that a prime minister must be acceptable to Erdoğan. Because of these recent events, the reporter makes the observation which is basically true,
“From now on, prime ministers will only be secretaries to the president, in whose hands all political power will be concentrated,”
“Now the prime minister, the party and, in fact, the state have become the same thing under Erdoğan.”
Step by step Erdoğan is achieving power equal to that of the former sultans of the Ottoman Empire.
God will have a man to be the horn of the goat in Daniel 8:5. More and more it is indeed looking like Erdoğan. God is making ready the Third Signpost.
