It seems these days we are having glimpses in leaps and bounds that are connecting more dots in the bigger picture of end time biblical prophecy that the Lord has been showing us. For instance, this story "15.000 Strong Army Gathers To Take On Syria" According to the article, the army is made up of defectors from the ‘regimes’ army and is forming to take on President Bashar al-Assad of Syria. They call themselves the National Syrian Free Army, or the opposition to the regime. This army is being formed with the assistance of the Turkish Government. Turkey is an Islamic NATO member nation who until recently had good relations with Israel, but has since broken off close ties with Israel and has become more friendly with Iran.
If and when this occurs, it’s not too far fetched to say that we are looking at the beginning of WWIII because Russia and Iran, who are close alleys with Syria, will not sit by and watch. This will be apocalyptic because Israel will no doubt be involved; and especially more so if NATO becomes involved, as in Libya.
I also noticed that the article’s origin was from Antakya, Turkey. I am not familiar with Antakya, Turkey so I looked it up and I was amazed at my discovery. Antakya, Turkey is also the old city of Antioch, Syria. In other words, the location of Antioch, Syria in biblical times is now known as Antakya located in Turkey.
Antioch, Syria was the chief center of early Christianity. Acts 11:26
Antioch became the capital and court-city of the western Seleucid empire under Antiochus I, its counterpart in the east being Seleucia on the Tigris. Justinian I renamed Antioch Theopolis ("City of God”)
In 637, during the reign of the Byzantine emperor Heraclius, Antioch was conquered by the Arabs in the caliphate of al-Rashidun during the Battle of Iron Bridge. See the remaining fascinating history of Antioch here.
Antiochus IV Epiphanes, at that time was the king of the north, spoken of in Daniel’s prediction in Daniel 11:21-35.

For those who can see the handwriting on the wall, it is not too far fetched to say we can now see more clearly, as we appear to be getting a glimpse right before our very eyes of where the Antichrist’s kingdom is originating from. There can be no doubt that the "king of the north" that Daniel prophisied of comes out of a region with a revived caliphate, or muslim-arab confederacy, and not Russia. And while multitudes still have their eyes fixed on Hal Lindsey's Revived Roman Empire coming out of a Europe that is falling apart, a Middle East Muslim caliphate is being formed right before our eyes, with Turkey, directly to the north of Israel, leading the pack. Add to this, Russia wasn't even on the map at the time of Daniel's prophecy, or Ezekiel's prophecy of Gog/MaGog. Nevertheless, I am not implying that Russia will not be involved in the Gog/MaGog conflict because today Russia is allied with Israel's enemies, Syria and Iran.
This sound biblical data blows holes in the pre-trib dispensational rapture false teachers who have for years been telling us in their books and other false teachings that the "king of the north" is Russia. All anyone has to do is study the scriptures and pull out some ancient Biblical maps, have a good Bible concordance handy, and God through His Holy Spirit will show you the truth..
