The little known prophecy of Egypt and its helpers
America has taken a distinctive course from supporting Israel to legitimizing Islamism through democratic elections. While the stated US policy still remains supportive of Israel, America's actions have accelerated toward boosting the enemies of Israel in both stature and credibility. The most noticeable public action of this Administration's departure from traditional foreign policy was and is its support of the Muslim Brotherhood as exemplified in Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood is the worldwide Islamic organization calling for a revived Caliphate and the establishment of global Sharia law. It is the father of many terrorist organizations and the uniter and cooperator of both Shia and Sunni sects of Islam.
It defies logic that this Administration would support an organization that is dedicated to establishing an antithetical system to that of the US Constitution. The Muslim Brotherhood has declared its intentions to take over America through a grand "Civilization Jihad" to destroy the US from within. Nevertheless, the US has assisted the Muslim Brotherhood in its takeover of Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood is represented strongly by Huma Abedin, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's most trusted confidant and chief of staff. Abedin's mother and brother are among the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood. Muslim Brotherhood operatives are scattered throughout this Administration.
Ezekiel 30 prophesies about the fate of Egypt and those who help it. The Lord tells us that Egypt will fall. The reason this prophecy in Chapter 30 is important is found in verse 3, "For the day is near, even the day of the Lord is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen." Verse 6 says, "Thus saith the Lord; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall." Verse 8 says, "And they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have set a fire in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed." Throughout this chapter, the Lord says that he will strengthen the king of Babylon. Less than a generation after this prophecy, Cyrus completed the Persian conquest of Babylon and the Persian Empire solidified its rule.
We can learn from both the historic and future properties of prophesy. Persia ruled over Babylon. Currently, when the US withdraws from Iraq, Iran (formerly Persia) is poised to make yet another play on Babylon. Egypt has already fallen into the hands of the extreme Islamists thanks to US-assisted democratic elections. Ezekiel 30 speaks of a time when the day of the Lord is near. It prophesies that those who help Egypt will be destroyed. As we discern the very days in which we live, we must be vigilant to understand what our nation is doing and how it relates to even the most overlooked prophecy. There are tremendous prophetic warnings that our leaders are on a course toward destruction. People of God must stand.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
