Egypt – A Key to the End
EGYPT – A KEY TO THE END
Daniel 11:40-45, “At the time of the end [uh, that’s today, folks] the king of the South (Iran-led Islamic coalition) shall attack him; and the king of the North (German [Assyrian]-led European superstate) shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. 41He shall also enter the Glorious Land (Jerusalem – Israel), and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon. 42He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. 44But news from the east (China) and the north (Russia) shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. 45And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.” [emphasis mine throughout]
Friends, the end-times are getting exciting, totally exhilarating. Prophecy is unfolding before our eyes on the daily news headlines. As Egypt boils over with revolution, look for radical Islam through the Iranian-backed Muslim Brotherhood to take over Egypt over the next year or so. Egypt must become part of the Iran-led Islamic power in the Middle East. Egypt has not been a strong Islamic nation for many decades, but that is rapidly changing. Iran is quickly pulling its power base together, thereby changing the total balance of power structure in the Mid-East. Look for a war in the next few years (days?) as the angry Egyptians join the angry Iranians and other angry Islamists and go to war against the angry Assyrians of Germany and the European superstate, which may be the United States of Europe by then. With Iran-backed Islam getting control of Egypt, Israel’s southern border will be vulnerable again, a sure sign that the nation will be temporarily destroyed just before Yeshua returns to save them. Wow, if you can sit still or sleep during this end-time age, you must be well drugged. So repent of your drug sorceries and stay awake, Revelation 9:21, “And they did not repent of their murders or their (drug) sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
It is a real possibility that the papacy-backed, German (Assyrian)-led European superstate may be the ones to fulfill the vision(s) of Daniel 8. Whether Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg or Barak Obama is the notable horn on the goat of verse 5, makes no difference to me, “And as I was considering, suddenly a male goat came from the west, across the surface of the whole earth, without touching the ground; and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.” The Scriptures consider every nation from Cyprus westward to be the Western Lands. The end run players are on the field. The last few battles of world history are about to take place. Get your final season tickets today. The terminating Super Bowl known as World War III is about to break upon us. The king of the north, Germany (Assyria), and the king of the south, Iran (Media-Persia), are about to face-off, and Germany will win this time and will rise to world-renowned power for a short time. But as Daniel 11:45 assures us, Germany will be crushed once and for all. Who might aid in the beastly Assyrian’s demise? Well, between China and India, there are 559 million 16-49 year-old males fit for military service. For them to put together the 200-million man cavalry of Revelation 9:16 will be a simple thing, “Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.” My dad served in Japan during the Korean War back in the early 1950s. Lucky Dad, his job was to keep track of the body count, the American dead, and report it up the chain of command. He told me of at least one instance when a whole company of Marines was wiped out. He also told me a story once that back then, 60 years ago, our U.S. military calculated that if the Chinese marched their army at us in Korea rank-by-rank, we would be shooting them on into eternity, because by the time we shot the last man sent into combat at the beginning of the Korean War, the Chinese would have been able to reproduce and raise up an ENDLESS flood of combat-ready military personnel. At least Americans could count back then. Too bad we haven’t put that knowledge to good use. Aren’t you glad we’re coming to the end of all this bloodshed?
American military personnel in the Middle East may get caught in the crossfire between Europe and Iran. If they do, it will be the last battle for the United States military as we know it. That may be our military’s just due, since they will be allowing homosexuals to serve openly in about three months. When you add up America’s immorality, financial debt, lousy foreign policy standing, murderous abortion record, materialistic idolatry, and out and out paganism, you realize why America will not be around for Judgment Day, at least in the form we see her today. I still pray for Americans, that they will repent before it’s too late, but over the last few years, I haven’t met a single American that even knows that he or she needs to repent of their sins, including the sins of our nation. Over the last one hundred years, Americans have swallowed every lie Satan has handed them on the golden American Dream platter. Just ask Yahweh, America’s cup of sin is just about full. Our Daddy loves us, but you don’t blaspheme Yahweh and His Word for decade after decade, kicking Him out of your public life, without serious consequences. America’s will has been broken, as evidenced by the fact that we will not punish the Wikileaks perpetrators. Now, any terrorist in the world knows they can commit espionage against the United States of America without legal consequences. The only way our national will could have been broken was for our national spirit to have been broken many years ago. When did that happen? I don’t know for sure, but it may have been when we gave our economy over to a private banking consortium known as the Federal Reserve Banking System in 1913 CE. Or maybe it was when we stopped winning wars after World War II, or maybe when prayer was taken out of schools in 1962, or maybe when we passed the abortion bill in 1973. Maybe it was when we stopped going to church and praying and worshiping our Creator, or when we embraced paganism in 1993? Heck, maybe it all started back in the 1800s with Darwin and his humanist theory of evolution. You pick. America’s spirit has been broken, now our national will is broken. What’s left? the fall of the American empire. Watch for the news concerning a failed U.S. government debt auction, which could be the final nail in our national coffin. Take heart Amerikaners, according to Revelation 7:8, 12,000 Americans will have a chance, “of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed.” Joseph represents America, America is Ephraim, Joseph’s son, the blind and balding eagle.
Don’t believe our foreign policy is in the toilet? Have you heard what our ambassador to Great Britain is telling their parliament? Ron Fraser, on page 9 of the Trumpet Weekly for January 29, 2011 CE, states: “Talk about the blind leading the blind. The U.S. ambassador to Britain, Louis Susman, has called for the British government to deliberately work against the will of the people in relation to continuing EU membership. In the face of polls indicating that 70 percent of Britons want out of the European Union, Susman has urged the British Parliament to ensure that Britain remains firmly attached to what whistle-blowers for years have maintained is a most corrupt and anti-democratic imperialist institution.” [emphasis mine throughout] America’s leaders are not the only ones out of touch with reality. Pray for our British brothers and sisters. Hosea 7:11, “Ephraim (Britain) also is like a silly dove, without sense—they call to Egypt (the British Empire used to have influence in Egypt), they go to Assyria (German-led European Union).” Giving up your national or personal sovereignty is called bondage, slavery. Still think your fascist-communist civil government is of the people, by the people and for the people? Robert Morley, on page 10 of the same newsletter quotes Margaret Thatcher, “The problem with socialism is that eventually, you run out of other people’s money.” Thanks, Margaret, I was wondering where all my neighbors’ money was going.
And now, German leaders are in Israel, negotiating, or strong-arming Israel, to what end? We will soon see. And next, Jordan is folding its current government and Yemen and Saudi Arabia are considering doing the same things as Egypt. They too will be kowtowing to Iran. The kings of the north and south are rapidly coming together. Where will this all end?
The good news is that the front page news events happening in Egypt, Jordan, and around the world are quickening the return of our Master and Savior, Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Master of all masters. He is personally guiding current global events to fulfill His plan, so His Kingdom will be established on this rock called earth. The generation that saw the establishment of the modern state of Israel should see the return of Yeshua. Mark 13:28-30, “Now learn this parable from the fig tree (Israel): When its branch has already become tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 29So you also, when you see these things happening, know that it is near—at the doors! 30Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.” One generation is 70 years. Israel began putting forth leaves in 1948; count up 70 years as we learned in the last post, and we arrive at 2017 CE. Hope to see you at that door. Apparently, Israel won’t put forth fruit until they accept their Messiah, Yeshua, which may not happen until He touches down on the Mount of Olives. I’m sure a remnant of Israel will then repent and follow their Messiah, but why wait until touchdown? Repent today and follow Yeshua daily. Your cross might become bloodied, but your burden will always be light. And remember, on Feast of Shavuot, or Pentecost, 2011 CE, we may be experiencing Daniel’s 64th Feast of Weeks, leaving only a few more years until Yeshua’s return. So please pray, watch, warn your neighbors and friends, and donate to this ministry before the commies take all your money.
Father, break our hearts as you’ve broken our nation. Please forgive our many national and personal sins. Our national, state, and local leaders have forsaken you and your way, thank you for not forsaking your people in America, Israel, Britain, and around the world. We look forward to Yeshua’s imminent return towards the end of Judgment Day.
Folks, I’ve gotta share this with you. I continue to study the Scriptures with the chronological sequence in mind. I’ve come across the teaching of Dr. Ernest L. Martin. You may or may not know, but he is the man who has pretty certainly discovered and confirmed that the birth of Yeshua was on Feast of Trumpets, 3 BCE. His ebook, The Star of Bethlehem: The Star that Astonished the World, is available on the internet. His astronomical research has convinced about 1,000 planetariums around the world to use his findings from 3 – 2 BCE for their Christmas season presentations. But that’s just one of the exciting discoveries in his book, though knowing Yeshua’s birth year is vitally important to a proper chronology of the 1st centuries BCE and CE.
What I want to share with you is what Dr. Martin found concerning the seemingly contradictory Scripture of John 4:35, “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!” Remember this verse in the context of speaking with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well? The disciples had just returned to Him at the well, and the Samaritan woman headed into town to report to the city folk what she had just learned. Then Yeshua spoke verse 35, which has confounded theologians and students of the Scriptures for almost 2,000 years. How can Yeshua and His disciples be looking at a field ripe unto harvest, but Yeshua says that there are still four months until harvest? The key to unlocking John 4:35 is found in John 5:1a, “After this there was a feast of the Jews.” This is a feast between the first Passover of Yeshua’s ministry found in John 2:13 and the second Passover of Yeshua’s ministry found in John 6:4. Since Yeshua was born in 3 BCE, and He began His ministry in His 30th year, which lasted from Tishri 1, Feast of Trumpets, 27 CE to Tishri 1, 28 CE, the Passover of John 2:13 was in the spring of 28 CE. Now we find Yeshua in Samaria just before another feast. What feast was it? Once we understand John 4:35, we know that the feast of John 5:1 is the Feast of Shavuot, or Pentecost, in the late spring or early summer of 28 CE. So what? Well, 28 BCE, Yeshua’s first full year of Ministry in His 30th year just happens to fall in the Sabbatical year of Yom Kippur, 27 CE to Yom Kippur of 28 CE! So what? Well, if Yeshua was speaking in early June, 28 CE, He and the disciples were looking at the ripe fields of wheat that should have been harvested around Feast of Shavuot, 28 CE. Why weren’t the Israelites harvesting the grain that summer? Because it was a Sabbatical year!! According to the Torah in Leviticus 25:1-7, they were not to harvest their fields in the Sabbatical year, but were to let the Land rest. These fields of wheat had grown up from the seeds that fell to the ground during the previous harvest season. From early June to Tishri 10, Yom Kippur, 28 CE, the end of the Sabbatical year, was almost exactly four months from the moment Yeshua spoke the words of John 4:35. The Israelites had four more months to wait before they could begin the next season of planting and harvesting again! Is that cool or what? Doesn’t John 4:35 make sense to you now? John 4:34-38, “Yeshua said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. 35Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! 36And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal (age-during) life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.”” Because the disciples understood the agricultural context of the Sabbatical year in Israel in 28 CE, they were able to grasp the spiritual concepts Yeshua was relating to them. The Israelites could not reap a harvest that year, so many could not receive monetary wages, but Yeshua said we can reap souls anytime and receive spiritual wages and benefits. Yeshua was often using physical grains in analogy with spiritual fruit. The same is true here. The disciples did not plant that physical wheat, but they could pluck the grains and eat them (see Mark 2:23, which could have been during this same Sabbatical year) during the Sabbatical year. In other words, it’s always planting and reaping season in the Kingdom of Yahweh, whether we’re enjoying a Sabbath day or a Sabbatical year. Yeshua worked 24/7 in His Father’s fields of human souls, and it pleased Yahweh. Can we do any less than our Master? Yeshua was the most spiritual Person who has ever walked the earth, but He wasn’t very religious, that’s why they killed Him during His first visitation. When He returns on His second visitation, He’s coming to straighten out the world of religion. It’s always time to sow the Word and reap souls, especially during Sabbaths.
