Egypt's Islamists aim to install a global Islamic caliphate, a Muslim kingdom, that will rule the entire world from the Middle East and it will be known as the United States of the Arabs according to Safwat Higazi who recently addressed thousands of Muslim worshipers in Cairo's largest soccer stadium.

This radical Islamic cleric told the enthusiastic crowd made up of mostly members of the Muslim Brotherhood that they can now see how their dream of a worldwide Muslim kingdom will be set in place in the very near future.

Higazi told the Muslim worshipers that the capital of this caliphate, this kingdom, will not be Cairo and it will not be Mecca or Medina but the capital of the United States of the Arabs will be the city of Jerusalem.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The call for a global caliphate, a Muslim kingdom with Jerusalem as its capital city, is a page out of Bible prophecy for the end of times.

The Muslim Brotherhood has come to power politically in Egypt and now the religious element, the Islamists in Egypt are calling for a global caliphate, a worldwide Muslim kingdom to also come to power. In a recent gathering of hundreds and thousands of Muslim worshipers held in Cairo's largest soccer stadium, the Islamic cleric Safwat Higazi called for the capital city of this caliphate to be Jerusalem, not Mecca or Medina the two most sacred cities in the Islamic faith. If that end times scenario sounds familiar, it is because the Bible does lay out in its prophetic passages that the Messiah, Jesus Christ, will come back to the earth and setup His Kingdom, a kingdom that God, His Father gives Him, Daniel 7:13-14.

The Lord's Kingdom on earth will last for 1,000 years, Revelation 20:4-6 and then into eternity future, Zechariah 6:13. The Lord's Kingdom will be headquartered in Jerusalem, II Samuel 7:10-15 and Zechariah 1:16.

In the last days, the Muslims will come to Jerusalem and to try and setup a kingdom, but they will be destroyed and the Lord's Kingdom will rule and reign from Jerusalem.
