“And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: ‘The words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword. I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. Yet you hold fast my name, and you did not deny my faith even in the days of Antipas my faithful witness, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.” Revelation 2:13
What is Satan’s Throne? Is it the ancient Altar of Zeus that once stood in Pergamum, the site where those refusing to worship the Emperor were slain? The altar was dedicated by King Eumenes II to Zeus and Athena Nikephoros, and its construction probably took place between 181 and 159 B.C.
The Turkish government agreed, perhaps for money, that the ancient foundation of the Pergamon Altar (Satan’s Throne) which was rediscovered by German archaeologists to become the property of Germany. In 1930 the Pergamon Museum in Berlin was opened to the public.
A few years later, the Nazi Party’s chief architect, Albert Speer, was commissioned by the new chancellor, Adolf Hitler, to design the parade grounds for the party rallies in Nuremberg. Speer turned to the Pergamon Altar for inspiration. Using the altar as a model, Speer created a colossal grandstand, known as the Zeppelin tribune. In the following years’ mass rallies, Hitler descended down the steps like a tribune in ancient Rome.
That Altar is now in Berlin, Germany. Copies of it were used by Adolph Hitler and Barack Obama during their political careers but is the real thing returning to Turkey? Erdogan’s government demanded Berlin give up the Altar of Pergamum first in 2017. Will it be returned in 2023? It is the date many believe will initiate the reformation of the Ottoman Empire (Caliphate) as it marks the one-hundredth anniversary of its demise.

We know from Biblical “end times” prophecy that Turkey (Goat of Daniel 8) reasserts its dominance of the Muslims by re-establishing a revived Ottoman Empire but its existence is short-lived. It is broken up into four nations. We are not told by whom but I would predict it to be the United Nations working with the World Economic Forum. It is out of the four nations that the Antichrist arises. His time is short 3 1/2 years. He is defeated when Jesus returns to earth with the Saints at the battle of Armageddon.
“Then the goat (Turkey) became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven. Out of one of them came a little horn (Antichrist), which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven.” Daniel 8:8-10
His (Antichrist) power shall be great—but not by his own power, and he shall cause fearful destruction and shall succeed in what he does, and destroy mighty men and the people who are the saints. By his cunning, he shall make deceit prosper under his hand, and in his own mind, he shall become great. Without warning, he shall destroy many. And he shall even rise up against the Prince of princes, and he shall be broken—but by no human hand. The vision of the evenings and the mornings that has been told is true, but seal up the vision, for it refers to many days from now.” Daniel 8:24-26
