THE BURDEN OF EGYPT
Idols come in many forms! Heavenly and otherwise…and the burden of Egypt has yet to be fulfilled.
Isaiah 19 (KJV)
2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.
In Matthew 24:7; Mark 13:8; and Luke 21:10..we see that kingdom against kingdom will rise against one another in the end days. We see just that happening right now.
I believe GOD works in cyclical patterns. Egypt was characterized by desolation, famine, and civil war. So too, will be the end of days. Egypt’s leaders led her astray.
3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.
I believe the whole world is covered by these principalities of evil spirits, they were then, and right now.
So many Jews shall come to Egypt, where the sun was worshiped, a place infamous for idolatry. But, there was an ancient city called Heliopolis, the Greek form of the words, “the city of the sun”. It was one of the most ancient of cities in Egypt, in fact it was the capital of the 13th dynasty in lower Egypt, and today it’s located as a suburb of Cairo. But, back then it was the principal seat of Sun Worship.
This is very interesting! The transformation which is very prophetic..is this: The practice of Sun Worship was common place and now, Islam who’s doctrine is based on the MOON GODDESS, is based throughout the land.
Another interesting piece of information:
The “City” spoken of here was called “ir ha-cheres”..in Hebrew “ir haheres”, the city of destruction. Some believed that Cheresh came from the Aramaic word for “Shining”. (The Shining Ones?) Cheres also originated from ‘charsut’ meaning a red tile for scraping, a potsherd (pottery), and it was also a city gate of Jerusalem…more specifically, the East-(Sun-Rise). Don’t you think this is particularly prophetic!
I have a gentlemen who puts out some great material. We don’t always agree on every detail but that’s semantics to me…the point is, we’re in this together! He put this out:
JERUSALEM’S EASTERN GATE HAS BEEN CLOSED – MESSIAH TO COME AND OPEN IT by Michael Clinton
The Eastern Gate, the only external gate that gives access to the Temple Mount…Muslims sealed the gate and put a Muslim cemetery in front of it believing that a holy man would not defile himself by walking through a Muslim cemetary.
25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.
GOD told Rebekah that her two sons would be rival nations…
The Hebrew word Edom means “red”, and the name was later given to Esau, the elder son of the Hebrew patriarch Isaac, because he was born “red all over”. Later, as a young adult, he ate “red pottage”, a term the writer used in irony, reinforcing Esau’s second name. The Tanakh and the New Testament both describe the Edomites as descendants of Esau. Esau married Hittite women, against his parents wishes.
It is said that in ancient Egypt red hair was associated with the god Seth. We also now know that many Egyptian pharaohs themselves actually had red hair, as the locks of rosy hair still preserved upon their mummified remains bear testimony to.
The writer Tacitus talks of the “red hair and large limbs” of the ancient British tribes and countless other Roman writers make allusions to the striking red hair that could be witnessed in the Germanic and Gaulish tribes of the European mainland. Likewise, the ancient Greeks also spoke of red hair. In fact, both Achilles and Menelaus are described as being red-haired in that epic Greek work, Homer’s Iliad.
Strikingly, some people even suspect the “mark of Cain” to actually be red hair.
From the very beginning, the Philistines were either allies or deadly enemies of God’s people. The name “Philistine” comes from the Hebrew word Philistia, and the Greek rendering of the name, palaistinei, gives us the modern name “Palestine.” Because of their maritime history, the Philistines are often associated with the “Sea Peoples.” They were an advanced seafaring people who, for several generations, were years ahead of Israel. The Old Testament indicates that the Philistines worshiped three gods: Ashtoreth, Dagon, and Baal-Zebub—each of which had shrines in various cities (Judges 16:23; 1 Samuel 5:1-7; 2 Kings 1:2).
The people from Edom, which is currently the area of Be’er Sheva is in a constant battle.
The myths and legends of Greece, India and South America describe the rule of Osiris and Isis. ” The Mighty Osiris and Isis walked into the Egyptian Valley out of nowhere and assumed command.’ They were taller and more imposing than the men of the time, with long blond hair, marble-like white skin and remarkable powers that enabled them to perform miracles”.
The records from ancient Ireland describe a whole series of invasions. The “Lebor Gabala Erren” (“The Book of the Taking of Ireland” or the “Book of Invasions”) , compiled during the 12th century A.D. describes the coming of the mysterious Tuatha de’ Danann or Tribe of Danu. They were tall, blond or red-haired strangers, “expert in the arts of pagan cunning”, who supposedly interbred with the locals, while teaching them many kinds of useful skills.
“They were the boldest mariners, the greatest colonizers, who could boast of a form of government approaching to constitutionalism, who of all nations of the time stood highest in practical arts and sciences and into whose lap there flowed an unceasing stream of the world’s greatest riches, until the day came when they began to care for nothing else, and the enjoyment of material comforts and luxuries took the place of the thirst for knowledge.”Canon George Rawlinson on The Phoenicians.”
There’s no doubt that the Nephilim were the giants of old, men of renown.
Archeologists have found evidence of definite connections between the Canaanites, and the Phoenicians, linking them to the Egyptians. Not only that but the Canaanite pantheon of gods are similar to that of the Egyptians, the Hindus and the Builders!
The clues which GOD gives us a part of the Mystery of the Iniquity. As a whole, they are set as a puzzle…like the ‘red’ references in this section. Don’t you think the fact that RED granite is used in the Pyramid is ironic?
I think the next part of the Scripture which deals with Jacob and the stairway to heaven is a tall sign of the events which happened then and lead into the present day events, and even more so with the coming days ahead. A perfect example would be of the Tower of Babel, CERN and all the activities of the children of Satan. Everything is cylical.
