We are told from whence he shall arise. He will arise out of Turkey the old Ottoman Empire from which Islam got its first victories and from which it established itself.
And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is:
Here we are told where the Anti-Christ shall arise, “satan’s seat”. Satan’s seat is Pergamos which is the Anatolia region of modern day Turkey which first saw the rise of the Ottoman Turks championing Islam. Under Osman I around 1299 AD the Ottoman Empire got its start and continued until 1932. It is today the heart of the once great Ottoman Empire. Anatolia is known as the birthplace of minted coinage and the Ottoman Empire. Hence, we see a connection between the Anti-Christ and money which is furthered in Revelation.
