For a few years now the leading candidate, I believe, to be the first and prominent horn on the goat in Daniel 8, has been Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. I wrote about his possible role as the goat’s horn here and here.
After having the Turkish constitution changed to give his position sweeping powers, he has been waiting for the election in November 2019. As president, he will not assume all these powers until winning the election. However, recently, he has called for the elections to be brought forward. I suppose he couldn’t wait for all these new powers.
The election is tomorrow. Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has been campaigning and looking to win the election.
Will this be the next step in his ascent to power? Or will he be defeated? We will find out by Monday. Chances are he would never let himself be defeated.
If Erdoğan is victorious, it is my belief he will be fully ready to be the goat’s horn when Iranian Shia forces, i.e. the ram, invades Turkish territory.
