Crisis in Egypt

The Lord Will Bring Egypt From The Brink of Self-Destruction

Egyptians and the rest of the world were shocked to witness the carnage, violence, and a showdown between the Muslim Brotherhood (supporters of ousted President Morsi) and the police/military this past week. Approximately 1,000 people died in this confrontation and countless numbers were injured. On Wednesday alone, there were 4,000 wounded. There are makeshift "unofficial" hospitals everywhere, which makes it difficult to monitor the number of casualties. Unless God intervenes, the numbers will continue to grow over the coming days, weeks, and maybe months.

More than a decade ago, an Egyptian friend spoke to me about the coming violence in Egypt, Syria, and Israel. The warning was based on the Isaiah 19 prophecy against Egypt.

 

During this upheaval, I communicated with the leaders to ask where they thought we were in Bible prophecy regarding Egypt. Again, they reminded me of Isaiah 19.

 

Since the overthrow of longtime former President Hosni Mubarak, Egypt has been on an extreme roller coaster ride. The crisis in Egypt is teetering between the desires of the majority of the population longing for a functional democratic government and a very small percentage of the population agreeing with the Muslim Brotherhood to implement Sharia law. If Sharia law is enacted, there will be no form of democracy and the government will function according to the Quran. This form of government is totalitarian and more tyrannical than the Mubarak dictatorship. It will also mean even more severe persecution of Egyptian Christian Believers.

The Bible warns in Isaiah 19:2 that He will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian-brother will fight against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom. As the global Church of Jesus Christ, let's join our Egyptian Brothers and Sisters in Christ and cry out to the Lord for His will to be done in the land where He and His earthly family once fled to for protection.

 

Let's Pray For:

 

  • The Christian Church to confess that the Lord is in control. It is with His permission that all of the events happening in Egypt were foretold in the Word of God (The Bible, Isaiah 19).
  • The highway of worship to flow from Egypt to Syria (The Bible, Isaiah 19:23).
  • The day when Israel joins with Egypt and Syria and the three nations will be a blessing upon the earth (The Bible, Isaiah 19:24).
  • The hastening of the Lord Almighty to bless Egypt His people, Syria His handiwork, and Israel His inheritance (The Bible, Isaiah 19:25).
  • The Church and the people to repent of their detestable idols that the Lord hates (The Bible, Isaiah 19:1).
  • The demonic idols of pride, self-righteousness, anti-Christ and anti-Semitism, hatred and unforgiveness to be removed from the hearts of the people, especially Christian Believers. (The Bible, Isaiah 19:1).
  • The Church to lead the way in repenting for their hatred and unforgiveness of the Jewish people (The Bible, Matthew 6:14-15).
  • The Egyptian Church to stand against the demonic forces that plan to ravish their nation. Egypt is important to the advancement of the Kingdom of God. Pray for righteousness, equality, and justice for all Egyptians to be established (The Bible, Acts 10:34 and Luke 18:7-8).
  • The Church to remain steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that prayer, unity, and love for everyone, including their enemies, is not in vain (The Bible, I Corinthians 15:58 and Psalm 138:3).
  • Pray that the Church is heartbroken knowing those who died in the violence without Christ will spend an eternity in hell (The Bible, John 3:36).
  • The Church to remember that our fight is not against the Muslim Brotherhood or flesh and blood but against rulers, ungodly authorities, powers of darkness, and spiritual wickedness in heavenly realms (The Bible, Ephesians 6:12).
  • The Church not to get weary in doing good because God promises that in proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Let us pray and believe God for a tremendous harvest of those who do not serve Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, as their Lord and Savior yet (The Bible, Galatians 6:9).
  • The Egyptian Church to be strong and courageous, remembering that God did not give us a spirit of fear but a spirit of love, power, and a sound mind (The Bible, Joshua 1:7 and 2 Timothy 1:6).
  • God to reveal the deep and hidden things of demonic powers that lie in the darkness against the Egyptian people who He deeply loves. Pray for the Holy Spirit to expose and overthrow every plan, plot, ploy, strategy, and tactic of satan and his demonic forces of evil (The Bible, Daniel 2:22 and Hebrews 4:13).
  • Leaders from the West to not be deceived by wickedness and deception of the Muslim Brotherhoods' crying foul play under the facade of democracy. The Muslim Brotherhood knows full well they intend to enforce Sharia law, not democracy, on the nation of Egypt. Pray that the Western leaders receive truthful, hard core intelligence setting out Muslim Brotherhood's plan to Islamize Egypt and the Middle Eastern countries (The Bible, Matthew 10:26).
  • Terrorist organizations, chains of commands, and hidden terrorist cells that have entered and planned this crisis from other countries to be exposed and severely dealt with (The Bible, Luke 8:17).
  • Young adult women and children deceived by the Muslim Brotherhood to have a road to Damascus experience, turn away from deception, and follow Christ (The Bible, Acts:9:1-19).
  • Pray for protection of every Christian Believer from destructive powers of darkness (The Bible, 2 Thessalonians 3:3).
  • Wisdom and guidance for those God has chosen to lead Egypt out of darkness and into His Marvelous Light (The Bible, 1 Peter 2:9).
