Front Page Mag: “As ISIS continues its brutal occupation of large swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq, effectively blurring the border between those two pseudo nations, a new, if not more menacing threat is emerging in North Africa where the Islamic State is looking to plant its cancerous roots.
In Egypt, the Sinai based Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, an Islamist organization responsible for dozens of terror attacks throughout the country announced on its Twitter account that it had forged a union with ISIS and swore allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State’s self-proclaimed Caliph. ABM has mimicked the Islamic State’s macabre methods and has made use of social media to publicly broadcast grisly beheadings the group videotaped.
ABM has also taken responsibility for the murder of America oil worker, William Henderson and was believed to be behind a deadly bombing attack in Sinai that killed over thirty Egyptian soldiers.”
Opinion: Fascinating. I have often wondered how Egypt (Hagrites) fits in with the all-Arab alliance of Psalm 83.
- Edom (Esau): Judea or West Bank (Palestinian authority)
- Moab and Ammon: Central and Northern Jordan
- Amalek: Arabs of southern Israel and the Sinai
- Ishmaelites: Saudi Arabia
- Hagrites: modern-day Egypt
- Philistia: Gaza, (Palestinians of Hamas – Amalek)
- Gebal: northern Lebanon
- Assyria: Syria including Kurdish (northern) Iraq
- ‘Inhabitants’ of Tyre: modern-day Lebanon (Hezbollah)
The Hagrites are named for the mother of Ishmael, Hagar, who was Egyptian. But Egyptians are not Arabs, and every one of the rest of the coalition of Psalm 83 is.
Then consider that Egypt is the only nation listed in Psalm 83 that has a future role in the final war of Armageddon.
Many prophecy scholars agree that Obadiah 1:18 is the end of the Arab armies after Psalm 83 and are therefore unable to participate in either Ezekiel 38 or Armageddon.
And Egypt is clearly identified in Daniel 11:40 as the king of the South: “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him (Antichrist); and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through.”
Obviously Egypt and North Africa will be a major participant in WWIII.
So is it possible that it is not Egypt’s government army that attacks in Psalm 83, but a sub-group of Egyptians linked with a terror group, that attacks from Egypt?
I don’t know the answer, but I think we will find out soon … if we’re still here.
