Watch this Egypt thing play out because it’s a game changer, not only in the Middle East, but also in the way people will view Bible Prophecy. Egypt has the biggest military force in the area besides Israel, so they have been a big reason why there has been an uneasy truce between Israel and Hamas. In fact, despite all the hype about Iran, Egypt is currently the most powerful nation in the Arab world, and a nation that Israel tends to watch very closely.
It’s safe to say that Egypt is a very big deal in the Middle East peace process. As in, whether peace exists or not.
Now, if Egypt were to become radicalized lets say, then a chorus of end of the world predictions will likely start being heard, and perhaps with good reason. But by the looks of things right now, it is not radical Islam that is behind this unrest, but people who wish to be free and have a real democracy. What if the secular democracy supporters win out?
Good question. For one, it’s going to trash a lot of the predictions made by Bible prophecy guys and gals.

The Drudge Report linked an article that explained the Illinois State Capitol building had a Christmas display including a Christmas tree, a nativity, and a sign posted by the foundation “Freedom From Religion,” which promotes atheism.
It seems when the Illinois Capitol decided to allow the nativity scene, that also opened the door for other groups to put their “messages” in there as well. The group “Freedom From Religion” applied for a permit last year to put a sign stating their beliefs in the Capitol display in “response to the state’s decision to put up the nativity.” A perfectly legal thing to do, and in my opinion, completely understandable. But…
The sign, which was placed in front of the Christmas tree read:
“At the time of the winter solstice, let reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is just myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.” (emphasis mine)
Wow. Hardens hearts and enslaves minds? Evidently the nativity really touched a nerve… The same foundation has put the same message in other State Capitol buildings across the country. Continue reading
Evidently the new Capital Visitor Center in Washington DC leaves this out, but the people who founded our nation had a strong belief in God. Just read these lines from all 50 State Constitutions (someone else posted this, and I thought it was fantastic) : Continue reading
