Egypt In Prophecy

It seems we can hear what is going on in the world, turn to the Bible and see the future results unfolding before us.  Or can we? Let me give you some Scripture and you decide for yourself.

Isaiah 19:1 – 4 – “A prophecy against Egypt: See, the LORD rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt. The idols of Egypt tremble before him, and the hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear.  ‘I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—brother will fight against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom. The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists. I will hand the Egyptians over to the power of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them,” declares the Lord, the LORD Almighty.’”

Ezekiel 29:10 – 12 – “therefore I am against you and against your streams, and I will make the land of Egypt a ruin and a desolate waste from Migdol to Aswan, as far as the border of Cush. The foot of neither man nor beast will pass through it; no one will live there for forty years.  I will make the land of Egypt desolate among devastated lands, and her cities will lie desolate forty years among ruined cities. And I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations and scatter them through the countries.”  (There is no evidence, that I have been able to find, that this has happened previously anytime in history.)

I am no theologian and have never had a unique spiritual vision.  I have studied the Bible for over fifty years and have taught prophecy for a number of years. I am just the average Christian who listens to the news and read my Bible.  I read the above Scriptures and draw some conclusions.  I then think what if?  Let’s assume, in time, the Muslim Brotherhood take over Egypt.  They are part of a number of Muslim nations that have tried to destroy Israel four times.  They were completely humiliated by a tiny nation defeating the entire Arab armies.  Each Muslim nation and their form of government have been complete failures when it comes to democracy.  Their people have no hope for freedom or prosperity.  In fact, unemployment among young people is unusually high. The only way they can respond to their nation’s population’s disappointments is to generate anger against an enemy.  They have picked Israel, the United States and non-Muslims to hate.  The U.S. is one of the few nations that has helped and aided Israel in their defense.  Musharraf, the president of Pakistani said: “Today we are the poorest, the most illiterate, the most backward, the most unhealthy, the most unenlightened, the most deprived and the weakest of all the human race.”

I have read where the radical Muslim Brotherhood  played a part inspiring Hitler to murder over six million Jews in the German Holocaust.  They now deny that the Holocaust ever occurred, so how could they have been an instigator?  They are part of the group that sends Muslims into the world to suicide bomb and murder innocent people in a number of nations.  They are part of the association working to promote a one-world government with Sharia Law and the Islamic flag flying over the capital building in Washington D. C.  They also want a one-world religion that Revelation describes.  Anyone who does not convert to Islam wouldl be beheaded.

Let’s again assume that the wrong group controls Egypt and they are anti-Israel.  That could mean at first chance they would attack Israel.  If Israel were to counter-attack and use nuclear weapons it could make Egypt a desolate waste as described in the above Scripture.  It would then disperse the Egyptians and scatter them throughout the world.  Where do you think most of them would end up?

Our White House is somewhat supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood and President Obama has appointed Rashad Hussain as a special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference.  Hussain has a history of participating with the Muslim Brotherhood and has supported many of their beliefs and causes.  Most Americans are not aware of just how many radical Islamic organizations and groups there are in America.  They are meeting almost continuously and holding conferences promoting their one-world government.  This is another reason I believe we shall receive maybe millions of Islamic immigrants if this prophecy is fulfilled and Egypt becomes desolate.  Then what happens next?  Do we believe that the Bible is foretelling actual events?  Do we believe God will devastate Egypt and scatter its population to other countries?  Exciting times—right?  I may have missed interpreting the entire Scripture.  Check it out for yourself.

I came across a speech that President Bush gave on September 17, 2001.  He stated: “America counts millions of Muslims amongst our citizens and Muslims make an incredibly valuable contribution to our country.  Muslims are doctors, lawyers, law professors, members of the military, entrepreneurs, shop keepers, moms and dads.  And they need to be treated with respect.  In our anger and emotion, our fellow Americans must treat each other with respect.”  (And what would Christ say?)

Whoever you are or what you believe, let’s pray for our leaders, our nation and that God will allow peace to come into our world and the hearts of every American citizen.
