Daniel 11 speaks about the Selecuid Territory, one of the 4 divided Kingdoms of Alexander the Great which includes all of Ancient Assyria; Turkey, parts of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. The King of the North (Turkey shall come against the King of the South (Egypt). Isaiah 19.
The 6th Empire was Rome, the 7th was the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) and will be the 8th:
Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. Rev 17:7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. Rev 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. Rev 17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. Rev 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

- Ottoman Turkish (Muslim) Rev 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 8. Ottoman Turkish (Muslim). The 7th Beast system, Turkish Ottoman was the only empire to defeat all the previous empires. Some say Rome did, but that’s incorrect, Rome never conquered Persia.
Jesus said himself in Revelations, Pergamos or Pergamon is the seat of satan, which is in Turkey. Rev 2:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; Rev 2:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not.
In Revelations 13 he speaks of the Beast that rises out of the sea, which is symbolic of many people & nations.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
The leopard is Turkey, and the Bear is Persia (Iran), the Lion Babylon (modern day Iraq) & the dragon satan. This shows us ancient Assyria, made up of Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Turkey & Iran are part of the coming Beast system.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
The deadly head wound is not a man, but a Beast system. The Turkish Ottoman Empire received the deadly head wound in 1924 with the signing of the Balfour Treaty. Britain and the US split ancient Assyria apart into secular states, and what we are seeing now is a revival of the Ancient Assyrian Empire just in time for Tribulation! The head wound is being healed now as we speak! God is so amazing!
