Middle East Meltdown

The world is witnessing history as the nations of the Middle East are seemingly coming apart at the seams.  Within the past month, the governments of Tunisia, Jordan, Yemen, and now Egypt, have been virtually overthrown.  All while Israel watches the events unfolding, wondering what will be the outcome for them, for the only allies they have in the Middle East, Egypt and Jordan, are also caught up in the madness. Should the Muslim Brotherhood, an extreamist arm of Islam, come into power in Egypt, they have sworn to end the peace agreement Egypt has with Israel. 

The Word of God speaks of a day of crisis in Egypt, and of the day of their redemption.  In Isaiah 19, the Lord speaks of an uprising in Egypt, brother against brother, neighbor against neighbor (vs. 2), as a result, Egypt will be given over to "the power of a cruel master, and fierce king." (vs. 4)  They will then cry out to the Lord because of their oppression under this new government and He will send them a Deliverer, Yeshua, and He will make Himself known to them. (vs. 20-21)  In that day, the Lord will say "Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance." (vs. 25)

Please continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and that the Jewish people will be strong and courageous.

Shalom, Dawn
