Isaiah's Pronouncment on Egypt

About five days or so ago now, I began to review some in the book of Isaiah on the passages that speak to the end of days prophecies.  Chapters 14-19 have a series of condemnations against the countries in the Middle-East surrounding and including Israel.  Many are famfiliar with hearing of the prophecy in Isaiah 17:1, which foretells the destruction of Damascus, which many feel will be fulfilled in the next major Israeli war, especially since Damascus is headquarters for a number of terrorist organizations.

But chapter 19 is particularly interesting, especially concerning recent events.  It appears as if Chapter 19 is speaking directly to Egypts current crisis.  The chapter speaks of the LORD (Yahweh) coming to Egypt, and turning brother against brother, Egyptian angainst Egyptian (Is. 19:2) and this is what we see plastered on our TV screens! 

2"So I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians;

And they will each fight against his brother and each against his neighbor,

City against city and kingdom against kingdom.

3"Then the spirit of the Egyptians will be demoralized within them;

And I will confound their strategy,

So that they will resort to idols and ghosts of the dead

And to mediums and spiritists.

According to scripture, though it go against the teachings of Islam, the people will begin turning to supernatural forces for help and guidadnce in this terrible time of turmoil.  The second half of chapter nineteen speaks of the LORD's healing of Egypt, when they turn back to Him, and worship the LORD God of Israel, along with Assyria (Syria) and Israel, and it is said they become a blessing in the land  (Is. 19:23-24).

Right now, in the news, a big concern is who is going to take over the government that Hosni Mubarak has ran for 30 years?  We know that he has just now appointed his first vice-president, and promised to appoint a new parliament, which are mostly his people anyway.  Isaiah also speaks to this, as to who will come to power.

4"Moreover, I will deliver the Egyptians into the hand of a cruel master,

And a mighty king will rule over them," declares the Lord GOD of hosts.

Now it could be argued that this mighty king and cruel master are already in power and have been for 30 years.  The Holman Chrisitan translation renders the hebrew as "harsh masters."  This could refer to the parliment that Mubarak has appointed, all the people over Egypt for the past thirty years who have run it into the ground.  But I think it makes more sense to view it as speaking sequentially here, and referring to the leader that will arise out of this situation.

America essentially appointed Mubarak, and since we give them 2 billion in aid annually, Mubarak has remained a key ally of the U.S.  If an extremist (i.e. orthodox) Muslim regime gains control, we can count this as the end of our democratic ally in Egypt, and an escalation to a Mid-East war, likely forcing Israel's hand to move more quickly in the Middle-East.
As to conditions that are going to affect the country, Isaiah goes on to predict the drying up of the Nile, and as a consequence, the end of all employment provided by the Nile and its products.  It will be interesting to watch developments in and around Egypt.  Southern Sudan recently gained the votes they needed to break off from Muslim controlled Northern Sudan, to gain their own independence.  This leaves the Northern part of Sudan without natural resources, while the Southern part has control of water and minerals.  I know that there has been contestation on how to use the waters of the Nile river.  It occurred to me that once Southern Sudan has gained independence from the North, that damming up their water sources, could effectively drain the Nile river, causing its canals to dry up and leave a stench from the ancient river bed and the death of all the animal life, as well as the death of inhabitants who live along the river and depend on its fullness to live.

5The waters from the sea will dry up,

And the river will be parched and dry.

6The canals will emit a stench,

The streams of Egypt will thin out and dry up;

The reeds and rushes will rot away.

7The bulrushes by the Nile, by the edge of the Nile

And all the sown fields by the Nile

Will become dry, be driven away, and be no more.

8And the fishermen will lament,

And all those who cast a line into the Nile will mourn,

And those who spread nets on the waters will pine away.

9Moreover, the manufacturers of linen made from combed flax

And the weavers of white cloth will be utterly dejected.

10And the pillars of Egypt will be crushed;

All the hired laborers will be grieved in soul.

11The princes of Zoan are mere fools;

The advice of Pharaoh's wisest advisers has become stupid

How can you men say to Pharaoh,

"I am a son of the wise, a son of ancient kings"?

You can hear this refrain among the people of Egypt, asking the same question.  But for the LORD, it serves a different purpose, to point to His sovereign rule over the affairs of men.

12Well then, where are your wise men?

Please let them tell you,

And let them understand what the LORD of hosts

Has purposed against Egypt.

13The princes of Zoan have acted foolishly,

The princes of Memphis are deluded;

Those who are the cornerstone of her tribes

Have led Egypt astray.

14The LORD has mixed within her a spirit of distortion;

They have led Egypt astray in all that it does,

As a drunken man staggers in his vomit.

15There will be no work for Egypt

Which its head or tail, its palm branch or bulrush, may do
The final half of the chapter (Is. 19:16-24) speaks of the LORD's healing of the nation of Egypt, after they have gone through this national crisis and seen once again that their gods and spirits that they pray too can not help them (Ex. 5-11). 
Not only are national forecasters speaking of the rising oil prices, which will effect essentially everything we do, but this can lead much qucker to the collapse of the Egyptian economy, as well as througout the Middle-East, and around the globe.  As Mubarak has not stepped down, and the people are not satisfied, I think that things will continue to get much worse until a government is set up and control is seized, and so the prophecy of Isaiah will be fulfilled. 
This event is very siginificant, and will most likely drastically change the way we live our lives in America, as well as lead to the collapse of the "global-economy," resulting in people crying out for a stable monetary one-world currency.  Could this be the event that finally pushes us to that point?

Commentary on the Middle East: Ready for War?

For anyone who has followed the news lately, it is apparent that the Middle East is a very volatile region.  Beyond just the Israeli-Iranian conflict, and the Palestinians, add to the mix that the citizens of these Muslim countries are incensed with their leaders, who drive their county's economies into the ground. 

Tunisia has thrown out her leader, with all the young people frustrated at the lack of jobs, and taking to the streets in protest.  Citizens of other countries identify with teh Tunisian youth, and are expressing solidarity with them, making it likely the same thing can happen in their countries, as unemployment runs high. 

The government of Lebanon has collapsed, and now an anti-western Hizbullah party wants to take control, which is pro-Iranian and backed by Syria (an extension of Iran), which also means very anti-Israel.  And as missile fortifications continue to grow in Gaza and Lebanon, being armed by Iran, Russia, etc... it seems that a mid-east war could be set off at the slightest conflagration. 

And what does that mean for us?  God's plan for Israel is mapped out in the Bible, by the prophets and apostles.  Some theologians think that Ps. 83 speaks of a war in which Israel is engaged in battle with all her neighboring countries, which, oddly enough, today are all Muslim!  The belief is that this will lead to Israel's victory, according to the Psalm, resulting in expansion of her borders, and uncontested dwellings for her rapidly increasing citizens, as Jews conitnue to pour in from around the world, which is also a fulfillment of Ezekiel 36 & 37. 

If theologians are correct, this will set the stage for the battle delineated in Ezekiel 38, famously known as the "Battle of Magog."  This battle will be championed by Rosh (it's a Roshian!), chief prince of Meshech and Tubal (Ezek. 38:3).  Many and most have historically identified this country as Russia, coming out of the far north (Ezek. 38:15), coming against Israel, a "land restored from war (Ezek. 38:8, 11-12)."  Other countries named with Russia are Persia, which is modern-day Iran, Ethiopia, Libya and Turkey are named as all being allies in this affront against the tiny nation of Israel (Ezek. 38:5-6). 

Why can't the Palestinians get some of the empty land in Syria, or in Jordan?  Come on, why pick a fight with a small people over a tiny slice of land?  Is it simply because Islam, a "religion of peace," mandates it?  By the way, George W. was paid an enormous sum of money by the Saudis to say that. 

Back to what it means to us, if war breaks out in the Middle-East, and it fits the bill for Ps. 83, this will mean indeed that the final stage is being set for God to sanctify his name through the destruction of Russia and her troops, and all that come against Israel.  Or, it could be, that this is one and the same battle as Ezekiel 38 predicts. 

It will be around this time, I believe, the Church, (the true Church) is taken to heaven, and the antichrist is revealed and emerges on the world stage with a 7 year plan for peace (2 Thess. 2:7-8).

Israel IS THE TIME-PIECE.  Watch her.  We see from the natural disasters the LORD inflicts on the earth that she is still the apple of His eye.  God promised that land to Abraham and his descendents through the line of Isaac and Jacob, who was called Israel.  If you have never trusted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, there is still a little time.  Don't wait.  No one is promised tomorrow.  God holds your life, and he can take it when He pleases. 

You need to repent of your sins (turn from them) and confess your sinfulness to God, for all have sinned and fall short of God's glory.  The results of our sins is eternal seperation from the prescence of God in the pit of eteranl hell, what the Bible calls death (Rom. 6:23), but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord, for all who confess and live for Him in truth and love (Rom 10:9-10; 1 Jn. 4:7-8).  Then read your Bible (, pray and find a Bible-believing church, where you can worship and serve!

The Israel Omen

If you want to know waht all the cataclysmic natural disasters have increased, and what they have to do with Israel, watch this!

israel today | America, Russia implicitly recognize Palestinian state - israel today

israel today America, Russia implicitly recognize Palestinian state - israel today

It seems that we are on a track to recognizing a Palestinian state, whether we want to or not. In Gen. 12:3, the LORD promises Abraham that he will bless those who bless Israel, and curse those who curse Israel. Our natinal fate hangs in what the president and his administration does to Israel.

Hurricane Katrina, Andrew, the heat waves of 2003, the recent mudslides in Brazil, the volcanic explosion in Iceland that paralyzed much of Europe and cost billion in two weeks... all of these just mere chance, or is it more likely that those events happened right after steps were taken to take away Israeli sovereignty?

How much anti-Semitism is too much?

It seems that in more recent years after the formation of the United Nations, it has become a forum for bashing and condemning Israel.

According to Anne Bayefsky, In 2010, 80% of all UN General Assembly resolutions criticizing specific countries for human rights violations were directed at Israel. Only six of the remaining 191 UN member states faced human rights criticism at all, one of which was the U.S. Half of the country-specific condemnatory resolutions and decisions ever adopted by the UN Human Rights Council target Israel.

Has common sense and rational escaped the worldview of the world's leaders, or is something bigger going on, a plan to wipe out Israel?

American Evangelicals Approaching a Gay Awakening? A Biblical Response to God Girl.

In one of her blogs, Cathleen Falsani writes an article about the coming “Gay Awakening” of Evangelicals. In her article, she cites a lot of “theologians” that differ with the traditional understanding of homosexuality. One she cites early in her article, the tattooed son of Jim and Tammy Faye, Jay Bakker, pulpit (or, rather, barstool) champion of homosexuality.

To read Falsani’s blog in full, go to:

In introducing this pastor that she lauds, she tells us that he is 35, pastors a "church" in a bar… and is single and divorced.
I would like to introduce myself to Cathleen. Hello Cathleen. My name is Chris Parker. I didn’t have the privilege of going to a stalwart conservative undergrad school like Wheaton, which has produced many inspiring models of the faithful, like Jim Elliot. But I did attend the flagship seminary of the Southern Baptist Convention, SBTS in Louisville, KY. I am 36 years old, married now for six years (I was married at thirty!) to a godly woman I prayed for for near twelve years, and we have two handsome young boys the Lord graciously blessed us with.

I grew up in a conservative SB church, and made a “profession of faith” at the age of six years. I was very active in church life, youth choir, drama, missions, etc., till I began to drift from the teachings I was taught in the traditional, conservative church. This continued through my second semester in college where I was in a car wreck one morning coming home from a midnight snowboarding session.

My head was smashed between my newly painted Mustang and it fractured all the bones on my face. I was also bruised on the right side of my brain stem, resulting in leaving me paralyzed on my left side and in a coma for 16 days. As I finally regained my long-term memory a month later, I saw God’s grace and mercy in sparing my life when I had been spitting in his face by living for myself. I repented of my sins and gave control of my life to Jesus, and my life has been a shining blaze of glory, through the trials of life, following God’s leadership through His word to this day.

As I’ve heard many of the arguments you make before, I thought I might offer a true biblical response. In your blog, you write:

According to biblical accounts, Jesus said very little, if anything, about homosexuality. But he spent loads of time talking, preaching, teaching and issuing commandments about love.

That was my answer: Love them. Unconditionally, without caveats or exceptions.

I wasn't sure whether homosexuality actually was a sin. But I was certain I was commanded to love.

You know, there are many things Jesus didn’t speak about. He didn’t speak about the pros and cons of different forms of government. He didn’t speak about the original language mankind used. Jesus didn’t ever speak about duck-billed platypluses or kangaroos. There’s a lot Jesus didn’t speak about. But regarding your statement that He never spoke to Homosexuality, a sin forbidden in the Jewish Torah, along with many others… He did affirm the validity of the Old Testament. He said in Matthew 5:

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

Here Jesus clearly states that He is not to abolish the teachings of the Law (the Torah) or the Prophets. In fact, in verse eighteen, he implies that God’s word in the Old Testament is going to have validity until heaven and earth disappear! So as Jesus Himself affirms the Old Testament teachings, He gives validity to the authority of the Old Testament.

"The simple fact is that Old Testament references in Leviticus do treat homosexuality as a sin ... a capital offense even," Bakker writes. "But before you say, 'I told you so,' consider this: Eating shellfish, cutting your sideburns and getting tattoos were equally prohibited by ancient religious law.”

Indeed, if you read the Old Testament laws without the proper understanding of seeing it in reference to the Jewish people as the people chosen by God to reveal his standards of righteousness, in contrast to the “Gentiles,” the other nations of the world that did not know the true God, Old Testament laws can seem trite and outdated.

For a simple answer to Bakker’s assertion to the inapplicability of God’s word, I would say that God’s LAW, the Torah, consisted of three different parts, the Civil, the Moral and the Ceremonial (form of Religion, though it all was “religious,” that is, done to Yahweh). It was primarily the Civil forms that were fulfilled by Jesus, when He said He did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. Examples of these would be of eating shellfish, cutting sideburns, etc., all of which had religious significance.

The reason God contained these in His holy laws for the Israelites, was to set them apart from the nations of the world. Read the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 18:19-21; 19 . Of course, the Moral aspects of Yahweh’s Law, such as the Ten Commandments, are still in effect. Now, after the first coming of Christ, who made a New Covenant, or Testament, followers of His word are no longer bound to the restrictions of the Civil code under the Old Covenant (Testament). Since the Gospel is first to the Jew, then the Gentile, the Gentiles are grafted by faith, into the Covenant promises of Abraham, that the righteous would inherit the earth (aretz).

The ceremonial law has not all been fulfilled yet with the first coming of Christ, to lay down his life to satisfy the wrath of God against those God has chosen and predestines to receive His favor (Rom 9:16). In His first coming, Christ fulfilled the meaning of the spring feasts, and the fall feasts await their fulfillment in Christ’s second coming. For a thorough explanation of this, WatchmanBibleStudy shows an excellent graph detailing this fulfillment:

For this brief answer to Bakker and Bell’s and Mclaren and Falsani’s claims that we can throw out the Old Testament’s codes of morality because Jesus didn’t speak of Homosexuality, He didn’t have to. Jesus told us that He believes God’s word (the Old and New Testaments) is truth (John 17:17). This includes Leviticus 18, which states: 22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable. Those are the LORD’s words, not mine.

It appears, Cathleen, you have not found the completion to your theological framework as you had hoped. Jesus affirms the Old Testament. Your openly gay friends are twisting the words of Jesus, or discarding them, and claiming their teachings as truth, and guardians of the old faith as outdated, unenlightened, bigoted and intolerant. Don’t you think, Cathleen, that it sounds like the ploy of another one, who sought to twist God’s truth in the very beginning. I believe his exact words were, “Did God really say…?”

If you really want to live your life in fear of the holy One, you should seek new friends, and new birth (cf. John 3).

This blog I write is to try and tell people about the warning signs God has given us in His word about His return and judgment, so that we would recognize them and the nearness of His coming and judgment. One of these signs is the modern day debate about the acceptability of the Homosexual lifestyle.

One of the signs of the last times that Jesus gave was that life would be much like it was lived in the time of Noah. That famous descriptor that was familiar to every Jewish mind was Genesis 6:5, which tells us… 5 The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.

Part of that great wickedness was sexual immorality, perversity, a twisting/distorting, if you will, of God’s perfect design form the complementarian roles of man and woman together for life. Earlier, in verse 2, Moses speaks of the fallen angels (“sons of God”) marrying the daughters of men, and giving birth to a breed of giants. Immediately after this, we are told that

7 So the LORD said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.”

The rebellious angels that left their proper abode (Jude 6) came to marry and corrupt the human gene pool, and thus thwart the Creator’s plan of redeeming humanity. If they could introduce bestiality and interbreed the humans with animals, then man’s gene pool would be inhuman, and the hopes of sending a human redeemer would be thwarted.

Part of that sexual perversity was homosexuality, to which Paul, inspired by the Holy Spirit writes in Romans 1:18-32: 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Here you can see a picture of the great wickedness that grieved the LORD of all. And from Genesis 6--9, you see the story unfolding of God’s great judgment upon man’s great wickedness, the perversion of creation and the corruption of human and animal lines. And we see that happening again today, so much so that not only are sexually deviant behaviors shouted to be “normal” and “good for society,”, but there is even an ideology forming of Tran humanism, combining the human genome with that of technology, to “improve” humanity.

It seems like today’s society sounds alot like the description Jesus gives of the last times before his return for judgment of all those who reject His truth (Matt. 24:37; 2 Thess. 2:10).

The Antichrist Maitreya's Commercial On CNN _ History Channel

On share-international's site, Benjamin Creme announces a new book he's written explaining UFOs, from the inside... and he claims to have worked with them!

New book by Benjamin Creme:
The Gathering of the Forces of Light is a book about UFOs, but with a difference. It is written by someone who has worked with them and knows about them from the inside. Benjamin Creme sees the presence of UFOS as planned and of immense value for the people of Earth.

"The Forces of Light," are all those that do not believe Jesus of Nazareth (who, fulfilled the Hebrew Messianic prophecies, especially Isaiah 53 on providing forgiveness and justification through his suffering) is the only way of salvation.

Will Miatreya, the World Teacher be what the Bible identifies as the antichrist (psuedo-Christ)? We can't say for sure... but he seems to match alot of the Biblical descriptions of this one-world leader that would deceive much of the world, and lead them to hell when they take the bar code, embedded in their right hand or forehead, as the mark of allegiance to this leader. The Bible says that those whose names are not written in the book of life will take the mark of this leader.


The Deception is intensifying. Is it really extraterrestial, or is it demonic, in link with the spirits that guide the U.N. and the Globalistagenda? Or is it the governments preparing us for something?

Curses! Romania's witches forced to pay income tax (

Interesting turn of economics in Romania!

Everyone curses the tax man, but Romanian witches angry about having to pay up for the first time are planning to use cat excrement and dead dogs to cast spells on the president and government.
Romanian witches from the east and west will head to the southern plains and the Danube River on Thursday to threaten the government with spells and spirits because of the tax law, which came into effect Jan. 1.
A dozen witches will hurl the poisonous mandrake plant into the Danube to put a hex on government officials "so evil will befall them," said a witch named Alisia. She identified herself with one name _ customary among Romania's witches.
