JPost: “In a dramatic policy shift, Egypt will seek to forge “tight” relations with Hezbollah, Egyptian Ambassador to Lebanon Ashraf Hamdy revealed in a candid interview published Saturday in Lebanon’s Daily Star.

Egypt-Hezbollah relations, generally strained under former President Hosni Mubarak, in large part due to Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel, reached rock bottom in 2008 during Israel’s Cast Lead military operation.”

Opinion: Isn’t that interesting? Sunni (Egypt) and Shia (Hezbollah) are going to get chummy and the tie that binds them is opposition to the Mubarak peace treaty with Israel. Also interesting is that President Obama is considering nominating Chuck Hagel, who refused to classify Hezbollah as a terror group, for Secretary of Defense. Coincidence?

Egypt’s ties to Hezbollah, undoubtedly warmed up due to the new Shariah constitution, sow the final seeds of the Psalm 83 invasion of Israel since Bible scholars have pointed out that a Sunni army would never fight alongside a Shia army. Until now.

Take a look at Psalm 83:4-5: “They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more. For they have consulted together with one consent.”

Every Arab nation can agree on cutting Israel off as a nation and erasing the memory of Israel but verse 5 has been elusive since the hatred is there but Shia and Sunni have never been of one consent, Until now.

Psalm 83 alliance: The tents of Edom (southern Jordan) and the Ishmaelites (Saudi Arabia); Moab (Central Jordan) and the Hagrites (Egypt); Gebal (northern Lebanon), Ammon (northern Jordan), and Amalek (Sinai); Philistia (Gaza) with the inhabitants of Tyre  (southern Lebanon, Hezbollah); Assyria (Syria, northern Iraq) also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot (Moabites and Ammonites).

Egypt’s alliance with Hezbollah gives them a tie to the world’s most violent terror groups on earth: Hamas, Hezbollah and al-Qaeda.

Breitbart: “In an abuse of prosecutorial power reminiscent of the deposed Mubarak regime, the Muslim Brotherhood government of Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi has opened an investigation into opposition leaders on suspicion of treason.”

Opinion: Last year as Mubarak was being forced out by the O administration, the frontrunner for the presidency was Nobel Laureate Mohammed El Baredei.

In 2005, when El Baradei was the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), they were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. El Baradei was also an important figure in the 2011 Egyptian revolution which ousted the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

El Baradei is currently the leader of Egypt’s Constitution Party, which aims to group the liberal forces of the country, to promote the principles and objectives of the January 25, 2011 revolution according to liberal ideals. He is a prominent figure of the Egyptian opposition, and know finds himself an enemy of the Muslim Brotherhood.

With never a discouraging word from the O administration, the Brotherhood is just getting warmed up.

Breitbart: “It is reckless and unwise for the U.S. to give F-16s to Egypt and its new president/dictator, controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood,” Congressman Ted Poe explained. “This extremist group is notoriously anti-American and anti-Israel. The United States should not be arming a country ruled by a group that has the destruction of Israel in its charter.”

Opinion: The gift of F16 fighter jets is even more astounding in light of the passage of the Egyptian Constitution based on Shariah Law. There simply is nothing the new Pharaoh can do of which the O administration does not heartily approve, including the MB charter:

Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.” Its most famous slogan, used worldwide, is “Islam is the solution.”

BTW, the price tag on each gift is $20 million. To say that the US cannot afford to give away 400 million is a colossal understatement.

World Christian News: ‘The Iranian government indicted a 32-year-old Iranian-American pastor this week on unknown charges after he traveled to Iran to help build an orphanage and visit family.

Saeed Abedini, a Muslim convert to Christianity, has been harassed by the Iranian government for more than a decade because of his work in the house church movement in Iran, according to American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which is representing the pastor.”

Opinion: In Luke chapter 21, Christ answers His disciples’ questions about the signs of the end of the age. Like Matthew and Mark, Luke paints a vivid picture.

In Luke 21:10-11 the apostle warns of wars and nations rising against nations. He tells of famines and pestilence, but in verses 12-14 Luke speaks clearly  as to how we are to rely on Him:

“But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake.  But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.” 

Luke continues that we will be hated by all for His name’s sake in what will be the worst period in human history, and yet he ends the passage with this: “But not a hair of your head shall be lost. By your patience possess your souls”

I think that Pastor Abedini knows that.

Dear Readers, We have written previously on The Five Crowns given to believers at the Judgment Seat of Christ. The purpose of the Bema (seat or platform) Judgment  is not for God to judge our sins, but for God to reward us for how faithfully we served Christ. Our lives will be judged by whether each deed is of eternal value or worthless to the Kingdom and Glory of God.

By the way, every believer will receive the Crown of Life since every believer loves God. James 1:12

Please click the blue headline link above and read John MacArthur’s commentary on the judgment of believers by Christ.

Franklin Graham: “As the new year approaches, the news is focused on America’s impending “fiscal cliff.” Our country’s financial problems, however, are nothing compared to the spiritual and moral cliff that is far more destructive to our nation than any economic concerns.

The Bible says, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3, ESV).”

The Wasington Times: “Essam al-Erian, deputy head of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice  Party, called on Egyptian Jews to leave Israel to the Palestinians and return to  their own homeland.
“Their presence in Palestine contributes to the  Zionist occupation of Arab lands, and every Egyptian has the right to live in  his country — nobody can deny that,”

Opinion: Not true Essam, the last time the Israelites called Egypt home was 3400 years ago and the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob sent 10 plagues (Exodus 10) against the nation to convince Pharaoh to let the people go. But most importantly Essam, Almighty God decided that Israel was the rightful homeland for the Jewish people.

“Thus says the Lord, Who gives the sun for a light by day, The ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night, Who disturbs the sea, And its waves roar (The Lord of hosts is His name)

“If those ordinances depart From before Me, says the Lord, Then the seed of Israel (Abraham and his descendants) shall also cease From being a nation before Me forever,” Jeremiah 31:34-35.
