Once again as in past history, Israel has “gone down to Egypt” for aid rather than seeking aid from the God of their forefathers. They have turned their backs on God and seek to establish an earthly kingdom despite God. This is open opposition to the Kingdom of God and Christ’ authority as its ruler.
Ancient Israel called on the Egyptians even though they as a people had suffered nearly 400 years of forced slavery by the Egyptians. They returned and asked them for aid against a common enemy.
Today, the United States plays the role of ‘Egypt’ as the Jews seek its aid and the aid of other godless nations for the purpose of establishing an earthly kingdom contrary to the will of God. It is an antichrist ambition. While so-called “Christian-Zionist” claim this is in honor of Christ, there is no connection or even mention of Jesus Christ by the leaders of Israel. They have denied Christ to be the Messiah and prefer secular rule. Yet, “Christian-Zionist” support them anyway.
It will not succeed. Almighty God stands against it.
His warning to the Israelites recorded in the Bible in Isaiah Chapter 31 applies even more so today:
31 “Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord!”
2 “Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.”
3 “Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the Lord shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.”
4 “For thus hath the Lord spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the Lord of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.”
5 “As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.”
6 “Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.”
7 “For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.”
8 “Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.”
9 “And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the Lord, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.”
Egypt was not able to circumvent the will of God and calling on the United States will not thwart God’s will or purpose today.
God has a Kingdom and it is a heavenly not an earthly kingdom with Jesus as Lord.
They should heed the words God spoke to the prophet Jeremiah:
“Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.”
This ‘earthly’ kingdom opposes the ‘true’ Kingdom of God as is therefore anti-Christ in its nature.
