The situation in Egypt has changed from moment to moment as the world watches

Listen to Today's Program Play

With hundreds of thousands of Egyptians flooding into the streets of Cairo, Egypt, calling for President Mubarak to step down, the Egyptian President continues to refuse to step aside and allow for a new government to be put in place which would bring stability to the largest Arab country in the Middle East. Many Arab leaders in the Middle East are worrying that the Egyptian phenomenon could happen in their country and Israel's leaders watch with concern that the outcome could be a matter of life and death for the Jewish state.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As world leaders have pressured Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down and allow for a new Egyptian government, the world has no idea what will happen in this Middle Eastern country. However, Bible prophecy does reveal the future for Egypt and its people.

So many political pundits and world leaders have almost from day to day voiced what Mubarak and Egypt should do or not do. One news gathering organization after the other has embellished the reports of this popular uprising in Egypt and played a unique role in fomenting this almost revolution in Cairo. Most political leaders agree that Mubarak's days as president are over and the Egyptian military can and must play the key role in Egypt's immediate future.

That being said, the true future has already been written as far back as 2500 years ago in the pages of Bible prophecy. When I say the future, I do not mean the next day, week, or even month - but the future as it relates to Bible prophecy. Isaiah 19 looks to a time when Egypt will be loved by the Lord Jesus Christ and the Egyptians will speak the Hebrew language as they join with the Jews to go up to Jerusalem to the temple to worship the God of Israel. However, before the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy, Daniel 11 foretells of the Egyptian military forces coming to Israel and trying to eliminate the Jewish state. The King of the South in Daniel 11:40-43 would be the modern-day state of Egypt.

Whatever happens in the present crisis in Egypt, you can rest assured Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
