The Hebrew Prophets predict that in the last days, Egypt would come under the dealings of the God of Israel. Egypts sufferings are predicted to involve the rule of a harsh king whose rule will bring untold suffering to the Egyptian people, including a civil war, and a national financial collapse.
Already Morsis decree as sparked numerous clashes throughout Egypt, as this Daily Beast article indicates,
Demonstrations turned violent in a number of cities, including Cairo and Alexandria, and casualties were reported in al-Mahalla, Assiut, and Suez, where shouting matches between pro-and anti-Morsi protesters quickly escalated into clashes. Morsi opponents torched local branches of the Freedom and Justice Party, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, to which Morsi is a loyalist.
The latest upheaval threatens the very concept of reform in a region hungry for change. In the five months since a majority of Egyptian voters just barely elected their first post-revolution president, the Arab worlds most populous nation has been forced to come to terms with a transition seemingly running amok. In some ways, change has come quickly since the revolutions beginning nearly two years ago.
A civilian, Islamist president is in office, two firsts for this ancient society. Voters elected a new parliament, and then that parliament was dissolved. Military generals sought to thwart the transition, and then thegenerals were dismissed. State media, once gagged by Hosni Mubarak, found its voiceand then lost it once again.
Hello Pastor Bill,
I keep repeating this message to bring some awareness to what I think may be prophetically significant,
From a June 2012 news story: the Muslim Brotherhoods Egyptian (then) presidential candidate, Mohammed Morsi stated that Christians will be forced to convert, pay tribute, or leave.
What this says, is that in Egypt, Christians are essentially becoming outcasts in their own country,
Isaiah Chapter 27:13
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem.
Three things are mentioned here along with in that day meaning I believe within the context of the day of the Lord,
1. Believers are ready to perish in the land of Assyria
2. there are outcasts from the land of Egypt
3. The great trumpet shall be blown
The great trumpet is (I believe) the Trump of God, the same one heard in Exodus 19,
Pray for those Christians suffering persecution in Egypt and those attempting to escape the fighting in Syria and in all of the middle east, this is a whirlwind, and our nation under this administration set this in motion,
Pray for the the peace of Jerusalem,
A good read
