The Muslim Brotherhood has Won the Egyptian Election

1 The word of the LORD came to me: 2 "Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: "Wail, 'Alas for the day!' 3 For the day is near, the day of the LORD is near; it will be a day of clouds, a time of doom for the nations. 4 A sword shall come upon Egypt, and anguish shall be in Ethiopia, when the slain fall in Egypt, and her wealth is carried away, and her foundations are torn down. 5 Ethiopia, and Put, and Lud, and all Arabia, and Libya, and the people of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword. 6 "Thus says the LORD: Those who support Egypt shall fall, and her proud might shall come down; from Migdol to Syene they shall fall within her by the sword, says the Lord GOD. 7 And she shall be desolated in the midst of desolated countries and her cities shall be in the midst of cities that are laid waste. 8 Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I have set fire to Egypt, and all her helpers are broken. 9 "On that day swift messengers shall go forth from me to terrify the unsuspecting Ethiopians; and anguish shall come upon them on the day of Egypt's doom; for, lo, it comes! 10 "Thus says the Lord GOD: I will put an end to the wealth of Egypt, by the hand of Nebuchadrez'zar king of Babylon. 11 He and his people with him, the most terrible of the nations, shall be brought in to destroy the land; and they shall draw their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain. 12 And I will dry up the Nile, and will sell the land into the hand of evil men; I will bring desolation upon the land and everything in it, by the hand of foreigners; I, the LORD, have spoken. 13 "Thus says the Lord GOD: I will destroy the idols, and put an end to the images, in Memphis; there shall no longer be a prince in the land of Egypt; so I will put fear in the land of Egypt. 14 I will make Pathros a desolation, and will set fire to Zo'an, and will execute acts of judgment upon Thebes. 15 And I will pour my wrath upon Pelusium, the stronghold of Egypt, and cut off the multitude of Thebes. 16 And I will set fire to Egypt; Pelusium shall be in great agony; Thebes shall be breached, and its walls broken down. 17 The young men of On and of Pibe'seth shall fall by the sword; and the women shall go into captivity. 18 At Tehaph'nehes the day shall be dark, when I break there the dominion of Egypt, and her proud might shall come to an end; she shall be covered by a cloud, and her daughters shall go into captivity. 19 Thus I will execute acts of judgment upon Egypt. Then they will know that I am the LORD." 20 In the eleventh year, in the first month, on the seventh day of the month, the word of the LORD came to me: 21 "Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and lo, it has not been bound up, to heal it by binding it with a bandage, so that it may become strong to wield the sword. 22 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms, both the strong arm and the one that was broken; and I will make the sword fall from his hand. 23 I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them throughout the lands. 24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand; but I will break the arms of Pharaoh, and he will groan before him like a man mortally wounded. 25 I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, but the arms of Pharaoh shall fall; and they shall know that I am the LORD. When I put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, he shall stretch it out against the land of Egypt; 26 and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them throughout the countries. Then they will know that I am the LORD."   Ezekiel 30

The Seven Bowls of Wrath

An evil man died yesterday. There should be jubilation when your arch enemy has perished. Yet, I was not happy. Oh, I was happy for the thousands he had killed and the millions instilled with terror by his actions. Isn't that what he was going for - fear?

I was consumed with fear on September 12Th. It was months later that I realized that fear is a sin; the opposite of faith. So, I asked God what I could do to banish the fear. If you know God, you can guess at his answer - pray for your enemies. Even some believers don't understand this commandment. We are not to pray for their blessings, their prosperity, their peace - we are to pray for their salvation. Have you ever prayed for someones salvation? It is a terrible thing to watch. Instead of love, peace and prosperity, the object of your prayers suffers because no one calls on God when things are going well. Even an atheist will call on God when he hits his finger with a hammer, spins out of control on an icy road or is thrown about the ship in a ferocious storm. This is why it is called Conviction - the labor pains of your new birth. New life is not achieved without pain; thus the term - Born Again.

His opportunity for salvation is now lost. Perhaps many would have followed him in a new Spirit - who can say? So, this was my thought this morning when I heard the news that he was killed. His fate is sealed - it is over for him, and I wondered. Did I pray enough? Did I pray long enough, or was his fate sealed a long time ago?

God sent me this - "The fourth angel poured his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch men with fire; men were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power of these plagues, and they did not repent and give him glory." Revelation 16:8

Some men will never repent, not even when the full power of God is shown to them. Not even when they stand on the precipice of death. Still, we should pray for their salvation - for we never know who will choose God's eternity.

At the new moon, put off your veil and remove your robes as your nakedness will be exposed. You weary of your councils and your sons inspire terror while looking to the heavens for inspiration. But, I tell you that the Lord of Hosts - the Holy One of Israel will protect His people from your enchantments.

You will sit as a widow and see your sons destroyed. In a moment - in one day you will become a childless widow in full measure with no one to provide deliverance.

Turn away from those who have trafficked in terror. Shall the creature order the Creator? Shall the Almighty require the work of your meager hand? Repent and turn away from the anger and fear. Embrace the Lord and his ways for only then will your children be saved.

Dear President Obama, Senator Reid and Speaker Pelosi -

On June 28, 1787 men from the newly formed United States met in Philadelphia to debate the articles of representation for each State and the people. The heat of the day was only exceeded by the heat of the debate for many States threatened withdrawal from the newly formed Republic.

Benjamin Franklin sat in attendance, sweltering and frustrated. He contemplated a similar debate just eleven years earlier when some of these same men were debating their Declaration of Independence, and he realized something was missing. The missing piece from the 1787 debate was the fear felt by all in 1776. Fear quiets the arrogant control of men and brings humility before destiny. In 1776, the result of that fear was prayer. With this realization, Franklin penned the following letter to the warring delegation:

"In the beginning of the contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor. To that kind Providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend? Or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance? I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth--that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire ca rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that "except the Lord build the house they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel."

Franklin handed his letter to the delegation requesting that the entire delegation conduct daily prayer for guidance from the One who had wrought the New Republic. Roger Sherman seconded the request and it was ratified by the delegation. Weeks later, on July 16th the delegation ratified Sherman's "Connecticut Compromise" which allowed the States two Senators for each state and Congressional Representatives based on state population.

Clearly, our Republic was wrought by God; and not just any god; but the God of the Bible. What God has wrought, who can destroy?

So, I ask you President Obama, Senator Reid and Speaker Pelosi, what will you answer when you eventually stand before God? You can humble yourselves now, or you will humble yourselves later - for what goes on in secret - God will expose to All.

O, King you have raised yourself from the ground spreading your branches towards heaven. You have grown strong with your signs and wonders setting your sights over the freedom and wealth of my people.

Many conquerors have come to my people in their time of apathy and sin gaining a foot hold over my children, but when they repent and turn their faces once again to me - I defeat their enemies.

Beware O King, my children have repented. They have sought my face, and for the sake of My Promise, I will respond. I have heard their prayers for redemption and I will release the oppression of you and your kind from their lands.

I am sending a Watcher. The tree that you have placed for all the world to see will be hewed down and your roots will be bound with a band of iron and bronze. No more will your people be covered from the dew by your branches. They will no longer eat the fruit from your tree.

I urge you to repent and seek my counsel. Remove the burden from the backs of my children and show mercy to them that there may be a lengthening of your tranquility.

"The Kindom has departed from you, and you shall be driven from among men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field; and you shall be made to eat greass like an ox; and seven times shall pass over you until you have learned that the Most High rules the Kingdom of Men..." Daniel 4

Isaiah 57:14-21

And it shall be said, "Build up, build up, prepare the way, remove every obstruction from my people's way."For this says the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place and also with him who is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the hear of the contrite.

For I will not contend for ever, nor will I always be angry; for from me proceeds the spirit, and I have made the breath of life. Because of the iniquity of his covetousness I was angry, I smote him, I hid my face and was angry; but he went on backsliding in the way of his own heart.

I have seen his ways, but I will heal him; I will lead him and requite him with comfort, creating for his mourners the fruit of the lips.

Peace, peace to the far and to the near, says the Lord; and I will heal him. But the wicked are like the tossing sea; for it cannot rest, and its waters toss up mire and dirt. There is no peace, says my God, for the wicked." Isaiah 57:14-21 RSV


Isaiah 57:11-13
Whom did you dread and fear, so that you lied, and did not remember me, did not give me a thought? Have I not held my peace, even for a long time, and so you do not fear me?

I will tell you of your righteousness and your doings, but they will not help you. When you cry out, let your collection of idols deliver you! The wind will carry them off, a breath will take them away. But he who takes refuge in me shall the possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain. Isaiah 57:11-13 RSV


Isaiah 57:9-10

You journeyed to Molech* with oil and multiplied your perfumes; you sent your envoys far off, and send down even to Sheol. You were wearied with he length of your way but you did not say, "It is hopeless."; you found new life for your strength and so you were not faint. Isaiah 57:9-10 RSV

* Molech (Hebrew) or Melech (Arabic) means king and is commonly used to describe the god shown above. Worship of this god required the burnt sacrifice of your seed; your children.


Isaiah 57:7-9

Upon a high and lofty mountain you have set your bed and thither you went up to offer sacrifice. Behind the door and doorpost you have set your symbol;for, deserting me, you have uncovered your bed, you have gone up to it, you have made it wide; and you have made a bargain for yourself with them, who have loved their bed, you have looked on nakedness. Isaiah 57:7-9 RSV


Isaiah 57:3-6

But you, draw near hither, sons of the sorceress, offspring of the adulterer and the harlot. Of whom are you making sport? Against whom do you open your mouth wide and put out your tongue? Are you not the children of transgression, the offspring of deceit, you who burn with lust among the oaks, under every green tree; who slay your children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks?

Among the smooth stones of the valley is your portion; they, they are your lot; to them you have poured out a drink offering, you have brought a cereal offering. Shall I be appeased for these things? Isaiah 57:3-6


Isaiah 57:1-2
The righteous man perishes and no one lays it to heart; devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from calamity, he enters into peace; they rest in their beds who walk in their uprightness. Isaiah 57:1-2 RSV

The Fourth Beast

"After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, terrible and dreadful and exceedingly strong; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns." Daniel 7:7 RSV

The fourth beast in Daniel's prophecy will be different from the beasts that had risen before it.

The first beast to rise was the Lion of Europe and it made war with God's people under the laws of Rome and the guise of faith. The second kingdom to rise to power was the Americas symbolized by eagle's wings - a high place of sanctuary for all of God's people. The third kingdom was the Bear of Central Asia and again God's people are victimized and all but stamped out. The Leopard of the East is now rising, and again God's people are greatly suffered under the prosperity of the Leopard.

However, even as the Leopard is coming into its own, the fourth beast is rising. We will know the fourth beast because it will be different from every other kingdom in the world. The fourth beast will not be economic; but demonic. The fourth beast will know no borders as the ten horns tell of ten kingdoms that will occupy the head of the beast. The beast will have teeth of iron so its words will wreak destruction. It stamps the residue with its feet. This beast will make war with all of God's people - the old and the new - the saints and the descendants of David. This beast is so terrible that Christ will destroy it first when he comes.

Just as these kingdoms have made war with God's people in the ancient past, they will come together once again as One Beast to make war with the people of David and the saints. Read the Old Testament and you will find the ten kingdoms; now united, that will try once again to stamp out the residue of God's people.
