First fruits of Arab Spring and America's play in prophecy
The first fruits of the White House-generated democracy drive in the Middle East are in. The results of the election in Egypt were an astounding victory for the Muslim Brotherhood, the terrorist sponsoring, Sharia promoting foreign policy partner of the man who occupies the Oval Office. The initial count shows the Muslim Brotherhood taking 45% of the seats in Egypt's parliament and the even more radical Salafist Muslims taking another 20%. The Washington Post reports that "Tunisia and Morocco have both elected Islamist majorities to parliament, while Libya has yet to announce dates for its first elections, Islamist groups have emerged as a strong force there...they also play a strong opposition role in Yemen."
In short, the US president has engineered a radical Islamic takeover of much of the Middle East in league with sworn enemies of America--the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda. As a result the world will become a much more dangerous place. There will be continuous heightened threat of war. Terrorism will increase. These organizations with which the president has aided and abetted, have sworn to create a "civilization jihad" in the US and to drive Israel into the sea. On November 25, for example, Ynet News reported speakers at a Muslim Brotherhood rally of 5,000 people in Cairo often repeated "one day we'll kill all the Jews," calling them "treacherous," vowing "jihad for the sake of Palestine."
Jesus, speaking of the false prophets in Matthew 7:15, 16 said, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. You shall know them by their fruits." The fruits of this president have been more unemployment, more debt, more promotion of homosexuality, more standing against traditional marriage, and now on the foreign policy side using your tax money and the full stature of America to give historical support to the enemies of God. This is likely the most significant foreign policy move since the establishment of Israel as a nation in 1948. These actions at this point in time could very well solidify the Islamic axis that will eventually usher in the antichrist.
Ezekiel 38 says Gog from the land of Magog, price of Meshech and Tubal will lead Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomar, Togarmah against Israel. Verses 15 and 16 say, "And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts...as a cloud to cover the land." Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Gomar and Togarmah are all in the land directly North of Israel--what is now Turkey. Persia is modern day Iran. Ethiopia is Northeastern Africa, including Sudan. Libya is Northwestern Africa. All these are Islamic nations that come against Israel. Gog, according to many well respected Bible teachers, may be the antichrist. And America through its president's foreign policy has moved the prophecy clock forward. First fruits and food for thought.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
