While some folks have declared that the biggest issue facing the planet right now is the Fukushima disaster and its nuclear power repercussions and other are focused entirely on the peace process in Israel, another prophetic situation is forming.
A significant showdown between Muslim sects is looming. Egypt is to be watched because it is the ancient Ptolemaic empire. When Egypt, the King of the South from the Book of Daniel, becomes powerful enough to assert political and religious authority, the fight will begin with the ancient Seleucid Empire which is not Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.
In recent weeks, Egypt has stepped up it’s diplomatic effort to form a friednship with Iran. Not only will this new diplomatic relationship that has not been in place for 30 or more years be a political and military nightmare for the Unites States and other western nations, but it will set the stage for another political and religious break like the one that happened 30 years ago. Only this time, the stakes will be much higher. Iran has something now that it did not have all those years ago: a stronger and growing stronger military and arsenal of weapons!
But there is more to this than just that Iran and Egypt are getting cozy. The Muslim Brotherhood is involved and will become the catalyst that sets off the destructive war between the Kings of the North and South. This week, the Coptic Orthodox Church suspended its dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood after additional Brotherhood leaders said it was seeking to implement Islamic Sharia and declare Egypt an Islamic state. You’ll recall that the Brotherhood has repeatedly attacked and killed Coptic Christians in Egypt.
We can expect to start seeing more persecution of Christians in Egypt. Persecution of this kind is on the rise in Iran, too. With ImaNutJob’s announcement this week that he sees a Middle East void of Israel, there is not doubt that the Kings of the North and South will try to make that happen. Their goal is a Middle East without Christians or Jews. But their roudy enthusiasm will be the downfall that will ignite the war between them catching Israel in the bloody middle.
A while back I mentioned in an editorial that Egypt bears watching. Now we are beginning to see why.
