Civil War in Egypt?

Morsi7-2Commentary & Analysis

In direct confrontation, Morsi refuses to quit, says army must withdraw ultimatum

In direct confrontation, Morsi refuses to quit, says army must withdraw ultimatum

The Muslim Brotherhood and its radical allies are now considering whether to fully mobilize their adherents for “processions” and counter-demonstrations. This would take Egypt to the brink of a violent and prolonged escalation with incalculable consequences.

Morsi defiantly says he won’t step down | The Times of Israel

With tensions high, at least seven people were killed in three separate clashes between Morsi’s supporters and opponents in Cairo, according to hospital and security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. The officials did not give more details. The violence raised the overall death toll to 23 since Sunday when a mass protest was held to mark the anniversary of Morsi’s inauguration.

It would appear that not everyone is happy with the Moslem Brotherhood and the implementation of Sharia law, that Morsi and his regime are forcing down the throats of the Egyptian people.  It also seems the Moslem Brotherhood and Morsi are not going to go skipping into the sunset quietly, thus there is a possibility of a civil war, like the one we are seeing in Syria.

The Political landscape in the Middle East continues to be altered drastically, as the “bulldozers” of the Arab Spring carve new and unprecedented gouges, in what was once familiar terrain.  There is no blueprint for this alteration and no one knows where it will lead.  Take a look at the picture above.  These folks are not part of the army, they are not part of the Moslem Brotherhood and yet, they are armed with automatic weapons.

I believe the people in Egypt want some form of democracy, however as I have mentioned before, there is no springboard to Jeffersonian democracy from Islam and that is the underlying problem in the Middle East.  As long as women are treated as second class citizens and religious minorities are openly discriminated against there will never be a culture in which all people can thrive.  There needs to be an Islamic reformation, but who is  bold enough to lead it?  Morsi and the Brotherhood want a Sharia/Islamic state, but they are opposed by people who long for real freedom, but are not sure how to go about getting it, thus they take up arms and are wiling to fight for an ideal which at the moment, is undefined.

In closing todays post:  The Egyptian people are at a crossroads and anything is possible.  Today is the deadline set by the army and we will see how Morsi and the Brotherhood responds.  The death toll continues to rise, the people are armed, the army poised to take control and Morsi and the Brotherhood are defiant, and thus, I believe the stage is set for perhaps a full-blown civil war.

  1. On a more positive note…..I am watching a northern Michigan preacher named Duane Vander Clok teaching on end time prophecy, how Damascus is falling and the Ezekiel war!

  2. I don’t see this as an upsurge for a move to democracy and freedom in Egypt. If Morsi retains we know what we’re going to get there. If the military under the guise of “fighting for the people” takes over it will be a military dictatorship.

    I’m looking for Isaiah 19 as the ultimate end result of what very likely will be a civil war in Egypt. One way or another this will not end well.

    The show with Sid was excellent.

    • “”

      Watching live coverage of the Egypt situation.

    • “”

      And so it begins. One Morsi aide has already said a military coup is in process.

      People aren’t going to go home today to picnic lunches out in the park. Let’s put it that way.

    • Jay Sekulow with ACLJ sent out this email this morning.

      “Could the Muslim Brotherhood’s days be numbered?

      The Egyptian military just declared that it might step in to depose the Muslim Brotherhood and protect Egyptians from Muslim Brotherhood violence.

      But within hours, the Obama Administration responded. CNN said U.S. officials “have also warned the Egyptian military that a military coup would trigger U.S. legislation cutting off all U.S. aid, which totals about $1.5 billion per year.”

      In other words, the Obama Administration will fund the Egyptian military only if it stays loyal to the Muslim Brotherhood government.

      This is incredible.

      The Muslim Brotherhood’s motto includes the phrase “jihad is our way.” It is the sworn enemy of the United States and Israel. Not one penny of our tax dollars should prop up a Muslim Brotherhood regime.”

    • I definitely believe he is a Muslim. I never thought about Sunni or Shia. That is great insight Eric.

      The late J.R. Church said in one of the daily updates that President Obama “is a Muslim. I don’t care what he says.” Made me laugh at the time at J.R.’s brute honesty. Maybe that is why the Lord took him and Zola Levitt home early. They would have gotten in a lot of trouble with the government with their “no holds barred” way of speaking out. Oh how we miss them!



      Military coup in progress. Morsi under house arrest. Military has taken control of state run TV. Situation is fluid!

    • just saw this link on drudge, show’s photos from Egypt US media would never show:

      Bruce- I disagree w/ the muslim assessment-he’s into the religion of becoming a god w/out Jesus’ help: apotheosis. The lie satan told adam and eve, ‘you shall be as gods’ It’s the ‘religion’ of the u.s. presidents, the masonic/illuminated ones.
      He appeases the muslims by being reared by one as a child. He is using them to foment wars. He appeases Christians by going to a ‘christian’ church. But that isn’t the measure, Jesus said ‘you shall know them by their fruit.’ He goes to Indonesia and also picks up wall art with Shiva on it.

    • Mrs M; good to see your on the truth!

      The New World Order of social democracy right out of Masonic capitol hill.

  3. Pro choice activists in austin shout “hail satan”. This is on the drudge report. Simply amazing. There’s becoming such a clear distinction between the wheat and tares.

    • “”

      See it all here and watch the video.

      If nothing else, at least the pretense is getting thrown out here. They’re being honest because that’s exactly what they’re doing while they support and do their sacrifices to Molech.

    • If the protestors think shouting “hail satan” shocks Christians they are mistaken. It does show where there heart truly is. Eric, as usual, said it best.

  4. This is for Marlene: I’ve had you on my mind since yesterday afternoon and into the night. I don’t know what you may need from the Lord, but this is the Scripture that I feel to share with you: Psalm 32:6-7 “For this shall everyone that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him,
    Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.”

    I’ve prayed for a number of you when you mention a prayer request and want you to know that one more has been added as an intercessor.

    L.A. Thank you for this blogsite and for all you do — there’s no place like this one!

    Oh, saw the Sid Roth interview – great show! Emotionally speaking, Sid Roth is George Noory’s opposite! (Smiley face here)

    • hello! i dont remeber ever seeing your name on here. i was on you rmind? im oging thru and extreme struggle, it may be why i lash out easily. i have been abrasive with people on here, and on edge alot lately. things that i feel i have NO control over. im hurting very badly. and really? no one to really help me or talk to about it. what i mean is, no female in my life that i can talk to. i only have my husband. hes great, but a woman who understands would be even better.. thankyou for that scripture thats pretty wonderful

  5. My buddy Gary reminded my of this scripture yesterday. Whats happening in Egypt is just another sign that prophecy is 100% accurate!

    “And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbor; city against city, [and] kingdom against kingdom.” (Isaiah 19:2)

    • I think we’re seeing that start up now. The cruel tyrant mentioned in that chapter *could be* whoever comes out on the top of whatever comes of this now.

    • The faction against the Brotherhood also hates the Jews and Israel. They also kill the Christians, so there is not a great difference between these two factions. It is just like whoever wins the war in Syria will still go to war against Israel.

      When I look at the Islamic world and see what is happening in so many Muslim nations, this verse comes to mind:

      Isaiah 57:20, 21 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

      John McTernan

  6. Luke 17
    1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! 2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. 3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. 4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

    re: Egypt… The younger folks that haven’t learned to look to history to avoid making the same old mistakes won’t know this yet. It helps to have lived some of it to recognize the pattern. Germany was divided intentionally. The Koreas likewise. Vietnam also. It’s a favorite strategy of the Russians now and likewise the US. And I suspect it’s the intention of the arms merchants to keep a balance of power that neutralizes power blocks with civil war.

    We see the same thing in the US. The political factions are intentionally kept about evenly paired so that elections go down to court decisions and gerrymandering is used to even out opposition. The rationale seems to be that power should be divided into eternally warring blocks, so that conflicts never end. Same goes for the war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on crime, etc.

    The Daniel prophecies in the latter chapters has the “king of the north” pitted against the “king of the south” in back and forth battles till “The antichrist” conquers both. And of course “The antichrist” and the 666 system will be overthrown and destroyed forever (bowled over) by the “Stone Kingdom,” i.e. the Kingdom of Heaven extended into the earth. (I’ve come to believe that’s more about the extension of the Spiritual Kingdom than the physical. Hearts and minds first…. That’s my bias in this issue.)

    In brief then, I’m suspicious that the civil war is never meant to end. Instead of breaking up Iraq into factions (Kurds, Sunni, Shia) — the strategy instead was to keep them warring with each other. Same goes for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Same for US support of al qa’ida backed rebels in Syria. Same for what is very likely CIA manipulation of the situation in Egypt. I don’t mean pro-US CIA or pro-US NSA. They’ve been turned to “rebel angel” proxies. Many of you would probably prefer to say nwo, illuminati, socialists, etc.

    So what’s the truth here? Is “democracy” a better solution than military or dictator controlled nations? How’s that working in the nations around the earth? How ’bout the US? I believe the curse of rebellion has been institutionalized in the US, which was born in rebellion as a pseudo-christian-masonic abomination. I’m a US veteran. I’ve earned the right to my suspicion. I’ve seen how US forces are expended for political and corporate purposes up close and personal, in the name of patriotism.

    There’s more though. I believe there are cautions to consider from Biblical instruction. One of the abominations that the Lord hates in Proverbs 6 is about “those that sow discord among brothers.” Likewise there’s the caution about rebellion in Samuel…

    1st Samuel 15
    22 And Samuel said,
    Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
    23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

    (This was Samuel to King Saul, and in the larger setting that Israel had rejected God as King though they were cautioned that it would cost them not only excessive taxes but their children.)

    We know who pushes rebellion — satan and the rebel angels.

    Please consider that the actions of the elites of the world including through the covert agencies of Russia, China, the EU, and the US — is to intentionally pit brother against brother as long and as violently as possible, re-fomenting rebellion and violence as often as possible. There’s nothing that says that strategy should be sane or logical no more than legalized abortion, or propping up underground economies (black markets in human trafficking, addictive drugs, arms, and money laundering)… but the easy explanation is so they can sell more missiles and anti-missile systems (arms, defense, security, fear, big brother, big government).

    Please don’t expect “democracy” to be a panacea apart from Christ. In as much as possible have peace with others. Resist not evil. The weapons of our warfare are spiritual, not physical. We are ambassadors of reconciliation. There is a place to dwell apart from the ways of the world. Seek first the Kingdom of God (spiritual) and the Righteousness of Christ (spriritual armor). Overcome evil with good. We are expected to love our enemies.

    How many times do you want to fail and repeat the course? Don’t go crazy.

  7. Marlene, so glad you were blessed! But know what? It’s not over! God has good things for you and knows your heart, even those places that we won’t let another human into. The pain is too great to even talk about, but God knows and He often heals us one part or “place” at a time.
    I’ve been reading this blog for about two years so I’ve become acquainted with you guys and have prayed for those who’ve asked.
    First time I heard about this site was through the Nephilim Trlogy – what a ride that was!! L.A. you’re a wonderful writer. You helped connect the dots for me and I’m eternally grateful!

    I have to thank FaithfulElect for encouraging me to hop on here. I’d been thinking about it for a couple of weeks. With some guidance about how to do it, I made a few recent posts. It was thrilling – never done it before anywhere.

    God bless all of you – I appreciate your comments and thoughts about issues. I’ve learned a lot and look forward to reading more.

    Happy 4th of July!!!!

  8. “Bees dying by the millions”

    The declining bee population and die off is quite concerning. From what I understand massive disappearances of honey bees have been reported in 25 states so far and continue to disappear in huge numbers across the Pacific Coast to England. It’s now a serious question whether there’ll be enough local bees to pollinate crops. An Entomologist in my area analyzed some honey bees from a deserted hive and found twice the usual amount of pathogens in them. He said that this could imply that their immune systems have been seriously damaged by something in the environment, leaving the honey bees more susceptible to disease. I can’t help but consider the problem stems from the extreme liberal usage of certain pesticides. It was reported that the crop pesticide Movento, made by Bayer, was recently approved by the EPA even though it was known to kill honey bee larvae. The rise of genetically modified crops and resulting herbicide-resistant weeds has led farmers to use increasing amounts of poison to deal with the problem. This is just one of the many possibilities for the dies offs, however, I feel strongly that the accumulation of herbicides, fungicides and pesticides in the environment could be what’s to blame for the declining population of honey bees. What’s really concerning is the dramatic loss of honey bees and other pollinators across North America may impact U.S. food production and force American dependence on other countries for food, which of course don’t have our best interest at heart. You think we eat poisons now, what till it has to be shipped in from China.

    • Matt, Do you remember when we used to swat at bees when we were at picnics and other outdoor activities and almost curse them when we accidently stepped on one? We took them so for granted and now I sometimes find myself sitting on my front porch and watching some other kind of bees in my flower blossoms, or walk down onto the grass where some stray clover blossoms are and carefully looking for just one bee – just ONE! Bumblebees are rare now, too. I’ve asked God’s forgiveness, but I know that won’t bring them back.
      It’s just one more domino falling.

    • I have talked in person to a lot of farmers here in Michigan because I set up my art booth at the farmer’s market every week last year. You are absolutely right about the cause of colony collapse……the big farms who hire bees to come in on trucks and pollinate see the collapse. They are also the ones that use pesticides and probably GMO seed.
      Not a single organic farmer who keeps their own bees has had the problem. Not one.

    • You know what I don’t see much anymore? Butterflies, lighting bugs, lady bugs and frogs, all are almost nonexistent now, so sad.

  9. U2 frontman Bono exchanged Bible references and bantered about music, theology and evangelicals’ role in AIDS activism in a recent radio interview with Focus on the Family president Jim Daly.

    “And I believe that Jesus was, you know, the Son of God,” Bono said, according to a transcript provided to Religion News Service. “I understand that for some people and we need to … if I could be so bold, need to be really, really respectful to people who find that ridiculous.”

    Awesome but ridiculous second statement “We really need to be respectful to people who find that ridiculous.”
    No Bono we dont!

    “First of all, David’s a musician so I’m gonna like him,” Bono said. “What’s so powerful about the Psalms are, as well as they’re being gospel and songs of praise, they are also the Blues. It’s very important for Christians to be honest with God, which often, you know, God is much more interested in who you are than who you want to be.”

    As Bono praised David’s “honest language with God,” Daly noted that “sometimes it gets you into hot water with the more orthodox folks, because they see you as edgy, maybe too edgy at times.”

    It’s a criticism that Bono’s used to hearing.

    “You’ve gotta be very careful that grace and politeness do not merge into a banality of behavior, where we’re just nice, sort of ‘death by cupcake,’” Bono said. “Politeness is, you know, is a wonderful thing. Manners are in fact, really important thing. But remember, Jesus didn’t have many manners as we now know.”

    Bono recalled the section in Luke 9 when Jesus told a man not to wait and bury his father but to follow Jesus immediately. Daly responded to Bono’s summary, “Seems cold-hearted.”

    Bono replied, “No, seems punk rock to me. He could see right into that fellow’s heart. He knew he wasn’t coming and he was just, it was pretense. We’ve gotta be a bit more cutting edge, not look to the signs of righteousness. Look to the actions.”

    Bono made an explicit connection between his faith and his work with the ONE Campaign, the humanitarian organization he founded to fight poverty and disease.

    “It’s very annoying following this person of Christ around, because he’s very demanding of your life,” he said while chuckling. “You don’t have to go to university and do a Ph.D. to understand this stuff. You just go to the person of Christ.”

    Daly threw a C.S. Lewis quote at Bono: “When a man is getting better, he understands more and more clearly the evil that’s left in him. When a man is getting worse, he understands his own badness less and less.” Bono jokingly replied, “Yeah, that could turn up on the next U2 album, but I won’t give him or you any credit.”

    religion today “more article”

    • Bono has a unique quote, i have heard him say..”Relgion is what you have left when the spirit leaves the building”. he definately has a point with that quote, thats for sure!

  10. Fourth of July terror alert in the U.S.

    The U.S. is on high alert, fear of Fourth of July terror attacks has law enforcement officials across the U.S on the lookout for potential terrorists on Thursday.

    The notice was issued in a ‘Roll Call Release’ by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, and obtained by ABC News.

  12. Morsi ousted in military coup as Army says he is ‘no longer leader’

    An army-backed plan for political transition in Egypt will start with a short period of interim rule before fresh presidential and parliamentary elections. The plan was announced after military leaders told the country’s leader Mohamed Morsi that he was “no longer President”.

    The news from Cairo came after tanks and troops were deployed close to the presidential palace in the city this afternoon following the passing of a military deadline without incident. Army leaders had called for Mr Morsi to yield to street protests and resign.

    • Did anyone else see an article, stating that the Obama Administration would cut off funds to the Egyptian military, if they went ahead with the ouster of Morsi? Can’t remember where I saw it, but it was this afternoon.

      Yeah – no more American tax-payer dollars going to Egypt. It’s a win-win for us. They successfully overthrew Morsi and his Brotherhood buddies, and at the same time poked our illustrious leader in the eye. Bet that didn’t sit well with his emminence. 🙂

      These are exciting days, to be sure. Some days I am so saddened by all that is going on, especially the ruination of our once great nation. But, as Gary Stearman keeps saying, “Keep Looking Up”.

      Amen – come Lord Jesus

    Very good examination of Inca and pre-Inca rock works mixed in the same construction of Machu Pichu and similar.

    There’s even a large stone wheel at one of the quarry sites.

  15. This is a very cool video that a local pastor posted on my facebook page! It is really wonderful and I wanted ton share with my dear ones here!

    This is a video I shared with our congregation on Sunday, June 30, 2013. It wen along with my sermon entitled “RESCUED.” Often times we are brought down by the cares of this life… we feel like we are drowning in our sorrows… we feel entangled or ensnared by circumstances and situations. Our faith and hope feel like they are drained… and we continue to struggle. There are times when we become our own worst enemy! Have you ever experienced one or more of the above? Maybe you are feeling that way now. Maybe you were even going after something that “appeared” to be good… but it didn’t work out quite the way you thought it would. In your desperation… call out to God. He is near you. But you must allow Him to capture you and you must “Give up the struggle…” So He can do His work and set you free! Who the Son sets free is free indeed! When Peter, Paul and Silas were delivered for prisons… their shackles and chains fell off… the prison doors were open and they were set free! NOTE: They didn’t take their chains with them! This video was played at the end of the sermon and many people were delivered and set free… I believe it will touch your life too! Or maybe you know someone that needs to see it. THis is one of the extensions of MAGLight Theatre Company’s video department. What you are about to see was not scripted. It is an actual event… it truly took place. Two weeks ago, Joanie, Matthew and I were walking the beach on Lake Michigan here in Manistee. Our son Tim and his girlfriend Sarah were walking heading north and did not know that we were on the beach heading south. All of the sudden I saw Tim running up to us asking Matthew and I to help him… he had found an injured Seagull. We ran down the beach to where it was… quite a ways from where we were. The Seagull had made its way into the lake and was drowning itself. Matthew had to run out 20 yards or so to capture the bird. It had a fishing lure (with two triple hooks on it… two hooks that have three hooks on each) all three hooks on one hook was embedded in it’s face while the tail hooks were all embedded in one of its feet. Matthew comforted it and talked to it as we climbed back up the sand dune… this is where the video starts. As you watch the video… put yourself in the Seagulls position. Listen close to all that is going on… I believe it will touch your life! God bless you… and Pass it on! Love yah… Pastor Pat

    1 Samuel 8

    1 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel.
    2 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba.
    3 And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment.
    4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,
    5 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.

    6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.
    7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee:
    for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
    8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day,
    wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

    9 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them,
    and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.

    10 And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people that asked of him a king.

    11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you:
    He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.
    12 And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties;
    and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
    13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
    14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
    15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
    16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
    17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

    18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you;
    and the Lord will not hear you in that day.

    19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;
    20 That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.
    21 And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the Lord.
    22 And the Lord said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.
