Egypt, Iran, Turkey–a prophetic union

Bill Wilson –

Middle East analysts not only for media organizations, but also at the State Department and within the intelligence community continually say that the only thing Sunni and Shiite Muslims hate worse than each other is Jews and Israel. These analysts see no way in which the Sunni and Shiite leadership will work together long enough to unite against their stated common enemy. Cited often is the serious and real divide between Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shiite Iran. The Saudis and Egypt do not want a Middle East controlled by Iran. The two sides of the division will fight to the death if they are given the opportunity. With the one exception–whether analysts will admit it or not–being Israel.

Islam has its origins in the Bible. Genesis 16:11-12 prophesies to Hagar the Egyptian handmaiden of Abraham’s wife Sarah: “And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael… And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” The Hebrew translation says “living his life at odds with all his kinsmen.” Instead of Isaac, Muslims consider Ishmael the chosen son of Abraham. This theme is repeated with Jacob’s brother Esau, who married Ishmael’s daughter Bashemath as well as Canaaanite women (Genesis 36:2). Islam’s founder, Muhammad, claimed to be a direct descendent of Ishmael.

Ezekiel 38 gives a coalition of nations that come against Israel. They are led by Gog, the chief prince of Magog. The areas mentioned in connection to Gog originate from the Assyrian Empire and are located in modern Turkey. These are descendants of the Egyptian Hagar. Persia is also mentioned, which is modern Iran. In modern terms, these players represent both Shiite and Sunni Muslims who unite against Israel in the “acharit-hayamim,” meaning the end of days. They will do battle against Israel and YHVH will destroy them with earthquakes, fire and brimstone. Ezekiel 36: 21 follows the prophesy in Genesis, saying, “…every man’s sword shall be against his brother.”

When we see news stories where the terrorist leadership of Hamas extends a public “thank you” (AFP Nov 19) to Egypt’s president Morsi and Iran (who he says “had a role in arming” Hamas), we can see how Shiite and Sunni can put aside their differences and unify against Israel. Furthermore, they came into union as Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogen and Morsi worked together at the request of the president of the United States. This is a clear instance where we can see how modern politics can work hand in hand to fulfill ancient prophecies. These prophecies are yet unfulfilled, but like layers of an onion that eventually bring us to the core, layers of prophecy are being revealed with the help of global politics.

  1. I would not say “Islam has its origins in the Bible.” The Arab people as a RACE began exactly as you described and many don’t know the double cursing that blood line received by Esau marrying into Ishmael’s lineage. Islam was begun by one solitary Arab in 622 AD (and many are now questioning whether Mo actually existed) as a newly created “religion” which employed ideas from the 360 religions already in the region. He chose their existing Moon god, but he failed miserably as such until he was chased out of Mecca and ended up in Medina where he then used deception and violence to promote his new “religion.” With such huge success, Islam forever became a POLITICAL totalitarian system which masks itself as religion on unsuspecting societies until it is too late. The only references to Islam in the Bible are to the false religions and false spirits masquerading as angels of light as in 2Corinthians 11.

  2. Turkey has been quiet; but not for long. It will emerge as one of the largest powers of the Middle East.

    • And it looks like that’s what’s happening. Oh, did you ever check out the posts here on RFID chip? You seemed as if you hadn’t heard much about it. If you haven’t, don’t forget. You need to know. Our dear friend is greatly confusing me, as I am unsure why she is fulfilling the verse about ‘the elect being led astray.’ Everything that ‘is’ she is claiming ‘is not’. Still praying for her real hard. We need to command the enemy to take his hands off that the name of Jesus. He is deceiving her mind, and she doesn’t realize it.

      • yes I did. And it is a hoax. if you google it you will see that. I wrote you with a link about in on fb.

        I have stopped reading her blogs but pray diligently for her. I sense a real tug of war over her spirit.

        • I’ve seen the one you’re referring to. There are people saying it is, but it’s not. I’ve seen Obama talk about, and government people..and ministers I trust talking about it. Ed King in Tennessee, Perry Stone, Gary Stearman… I’ve read numerous articles on it from respected news sources. The chip will be in the card next March…which is fine. It’s not in our body…that’s cool. But eventually, it will be mandatory to be in the body. The RFID chip is already out and has been for years. It first started in animals (interesting, mark of the BEAST) for tracking, then in a huge club in Europe, in Alzheimer’s patients (testing), in children, etc. It’s real. You just have your people out there who do anything to make the Bible look like a lie and who are skeptical. I promise is real.

  3. Excellent post, I love the Jot, and his insights.

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 God's call to the world! Are you ready?
