Egypt’s Dark Night Begins

While a billion people watched the Olympics, Egypt was plunged headlong into the Muslim Brotherhood  nightmare era. President Morsi accomplished in one week, without firing a single shot, a feat that took Turkey over a decade to achieve. Turkey’s Islamists gradually infiltrated all areas of the society for over a decade finally wresting control from the army secularists.

Western observers may seem clueless, but the Bible predicts Egypt’s night, in Isaiah 19. Let’s review just the last week.

August 5 – Terrorist attack on Egyptian forces on the border of Israel and Gaza killing 16 Egyptian soldiers. Times of Israel

August 8 – Morsi fires Intelligence Chief. Egyptian president fires intelligence chief over militant killings of 16 soldiers in Sinai. Washington Post

August 9 – 60 American made and supplied Egyptian tanks enter Sinai. Egypt reportedly sends 60 tanks, 400 armored vehicles to El Arish in biggest deployment since 1979. Israel National News

August 9 – TV host is taken off-air. Tawfiq Okasha’s Faraeen satellite television channel, which is known for its ultra-nationalist, anti-revolutionaries, anti-Brotherhood stances, ceases transmission on Thursday evening on orders of Egyptian state authorities. AhramOnline

August 11 – An Egyptian court ordered the Saturday editions of a newspaper confiscated over allegations it insulted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi. The paper, a tabloid owned by a Christian businessman, has been fiercely critical of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood while showing strong support for the military council. ABC News International online

August 12 – Islamist takeover complete: Morsi Fires Top Defense BrassMuslim Brotherhood consolidating power: Defense Minister and Chief of Staff sacked, military shaved of extra powers. – Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi has sacked the entire leadership of the country’s defense establishment. Morsi also ordered the retirement of the commanders of the navy, air defense and air force. Israel National News

For a good analysis of the week’s shocking Egyptian soft coup, read the excellent piece in the Jerusalem Post by TZVI MAZEL: Morsi’s Velvet Revolution

Also, video analysis: Real News from The Blaze.

So, what does all this mean? It was spelled out clearly some 2500 years ago by the prophet Isaiah. Read Isaiah 19. It reveals the evil darkness overtaking Egypt right now, but ends with the glorious salvation of a remnant of Egyptians who will worship Yehovah, the God of Israel. Even now there is a Cairo church of 40,000 believers who worship Yeshua. Here is a must-see video: Thousands in Egypt shout Yeshua for 10 minutes.

In that day five of Egypt’s cities will follow Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies. They will even begin to speak Hebrew, the language of Canaan. One of these cities will be Heliopolis, the City of the Sun. In that day there will be an altar to Yehovah in the heart of Egypt, and there will be a monument to Yehovah at its border. It will be a sign and a witness that Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies is worshiped in the land of Egypt. When the people cry to Yehovah for help against those who oppress them, he will send them a savior who will rescue them. Yehovah will make himself known to the Egyptians. Yes, they will know Yehovah and will give their sacrifices and offerings to him. They will make a vow to Yehovah and will keep it. Yehovah will strike Egypt, and then he will bring healing. For the Egyptians will turn to Yehovah, and he will listen to their pleas and heal them. Isaiah 19:18-22 NLT (I have changed the generic word “LORD” used in English translations to the Hebrew literal name of God, Yehovah, that occurs in the Hebrew text. This passage is so flat using the generic when it is intended to reveal our Father God’s personal name.)
