Egyptian President Morsi Gone?
“a fierce king shall rule over them”
By Craig C. White
Well it seems that Egyptian President Morsi is on his way out. We will see how the power struggle in Egypt ends as the dust settles. The interim government is already calling for new elections that will again include the Muslim Brotherhood on the ballot. Everybody involved is already calling for more violence; Egyptian fighting against Egyptian!
Isaiah 19 tells about Egypt’s troubles during the period just before Jesus’ coming. Two things stand out that seem to be happening today. They are presented here in order. The first is that Egyptian will fight against Egyptian. Second is that Egypt will be ruled by a “cruel lord” and a “fierce king”.
Both of these things are true now, but maybe Egyptian President Morsi isn’t the “cruel lord” that Isaiah speaks about. Or perhaps he is.
The fighting described in Isaiah seems to be on a larger scale then we have seen so far. Perhaps fighting in Egypt will now increase in severity. Also the fighting between Egyptians that is described in Isaiah is presented before we are told about the “cruel lord”, so maybe Egypt’s terrible leader is yet to come. Perhaps Morsi is that “cruel lord” and will somehow retain power. We will have to wait and see. At any rate events in Egypt are beginning to look a lot like Isaiah’s prediction.
Isaiah 19:2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom. 3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.
Today we are beginning to see Egyptians fighting against Egyptians. It seems that half of all Egyptians are protesting their new ruler as he grapples for absolute authority.
Isaiah 19:4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts.
Speaking of new ruler; Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi is Egypt’s first Islamist president. He is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi believes in establishing an Islamic state in Egypt. He is trying to take complete control of the nation of Egypt. It is possible that Egypt now has its fierce king! If I were you, I would prepare for Jesus return!
Egypt’s end time troubles include economic disaster. That is also the case today. Read about Egypt in bible prophecy in my commentary “The Burden of Egypt“.
