Egypt has reinforced the Sinai peninsula with more military hardware. A few days ago Israel asked Egypt to be very careful with the military hardware signaling Israel is becoming very nervous about the renewed military strength in the south. Egyptian President Morsi is traveling to Iran in the days ahead, and Israel knows this does not bode well. As all of the developments are going on, the United States and the European Union are sitting idly by doing nothing. The leadership in this world is a mess, and it is going to take the Antichrist to come in and clean it up, only temporarily. In the short reign of the Antichrist, the world will fall apart and hell will truly be upon this earth until Jesus comes back.
Egypt is mentioned in Daniel 11 and elsewhere as King of the South. I do not see Egypt mentioned in the Gog/Magog war. If Egypt is involved in a military clash with Israel, then it will be separated from the Russian/Iranian led Gog/Magog war. I do know the Antichrist will eventually come into Egypt and take spoil on his way to Israel to perform the abomination of desolation. We do not have a seven year treaty in place, so the events surrounding Egypt in Daniel 11 seem to be a little ways off. In any case, Egypt is aligning itself with the enemies of Israel. This may prompt a courageous Iran and Russia to take advantage of the new dynamics and attack Israel. As they bring Turkey, Libya, and Sudan with them, the Lord will defend His nation.
On a side note, the European debt crisis continues to make news as the markets are preparing for an economic collapse. This is on top of a leaderless world as Obama continues to campaign, but fails to lead. The United States is rapidly deteriorating under Obama, and the European Union will rise for a short time under the Antichrist. As the debt implosion grips the world, look for currencies to lose their value, and an electronic currency will be implemented which fulfills the mark of the beast Scripture.
Immorality continues to eat away at our families and churches. Marriage is being redefined, and the way we worship God is being attacked and redefined by the world. As we approach His Coming it will get worse. So bad, that we who are called followers of Jesus will be persecuted in large numbers. Always remember Satan may destroy the body, but he cannot destroy the soul. In time we all will get new bodies at the time of the Rapture.
Egypt is preparing to use aircraft and tanks in Sinai for the first time since 1973 as part of its offensive against militants in the border area, security sources said on Monday.
The plans to step up the operation were being finalized by Egypt's newly appointed Defense Minister General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as he made his first visit to Sinai on Monday, following the killing of 16 border guards on August 5.
