Arab Spring

He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

At an Egyptian KKK rally… sorry, I mean “campaign rally” for presidential candidate Mohammed Morsi (who has since been elected president), the emcee leads the crowd in a melodious chant to “banish the sleep from the eyes of all Jews.”

This is a fascinating choice of words given a certain Bible verse concerning sleep (more on that in a moment.) But just before that hateful chant, the crowd was lead on this one:

With Israel back in her land since 1948, we need to dig into the Bible to understand events as massive, swift, and profound as the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of the Middle East… sorry, I mean “Arab Spring.” The God of Israel (YHVH, Yahweh, Yeshua, Jesus Christ, I AM, the only true God) is aligning the nations to fulfill a plethora of prophecies including those of Ezekiel 38, Isaiah 19, Revelation, Zechariah, Joel, and many more.

But for now, let’s concentrate on the relevance of these two chants. Egypt had previously held a thirty-year peace with Israel, and had been an ally of the United States. But now, Egypt has fallen under the control of Islamic fundamentalists, just as Iran did three decades prior. All of a sudden, Egypt is hostile toward Israel, and will certainly end the long-standing truce Israel enjoyed with Egypt. To stir up this crowd in frothing hatred of the Jews and Israel, the men on stage use chants addressing sleep deprivation and the taking of Jerusalem.  In the Book of Psalms, the Bible provided a prophetic rebuttal to these very chants long before this rally ever took place. You see, it’s not the Jews that this crowd needs to affect with sleep deprivation, it’s God, and that ain’t gonna happen. Similarly, it’s God – not the Jews – that this crowd needs to worry about as they march toward Jerusalem.

…indeed, he [God] who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. ~ Psalm 121:4

And as for the other chant, “millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem,” I believe that most of the people in the crowd (and certainly the guy leading the chant) are putting on a front of machismo, and do not truly expect to die taking Jerusalem. I believe they think it will be easy. However, Psalm 121:4 (and most of the rest of the Bible) clearly states that God is watching over Israel.  Therefore, I believe that the part about them becoming martyrs is going to be proven more accurate than anyone at this rally ever dreamed. The Bible is always proven true.
