The situation with the Middle East and Egypt continues to be of prophetic interest:

Egyptian Protesters Turn Anger Toward Military

Wall Street Journal – Matt Bradley –  8 July 2011…
CAIRO—Tens of thousands of Egyptians on Friday mounted one of the country’s largest demonstrations since protesters overthrew president Hosni Mubarak in February, as anger began to crystallize against what had been long been the unreproachable guarantor of the revolution—the country’s military…

The Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups that have lately eschewed continuing demonstrations called out their numbers to press for a disparate set of economic and political reforms. “Ninety percent of the people just united together today,” said Ayman Zaki, a print-store owner who said he is a Brotherhood member.

I have been reporting all year that I believed that the secular-type governments that the “Arab Spring” have been turning towards would not ultimately satisfy the Arab peoples and that ultimately they would realize that they want something else.

Of course, Egypt is not the only place with trouble currently brewing.  Notice Libya, Syria, and Yemen, for three additional examples:

Saleh’s speech ignites deadly protests 8 July 2011

There are troubles in the Arab World.  Of course, Jesus told of troubles as part of the beginning of sorrows:

8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.  (Mark 13:8)

The Muslim Brotherhood itself wants to establish a caliphate across North Africa and into the Middle East. It is possible that the Muslim Brotherhood may be the vehicle to help establish a pan-Arabic leader.  This will not truly solve all the “troubles,” but may seem to somewhat do so for a while.

The Bible tells of an end time King of the South that seems to rule over the much of the Arab world (Daniel 11:40-43; Psalm 83).  The protests in the Middle East and North Africa apparently will be a factor that will encourage such a leader (who may well be Egyptian) to rise up.

Prophetic details concerning much of this can be found in the following articles:

Is There A Future King of the South? Some no longer believe there needs to be. Might Egypt, Islam, Iran, Arabs, or Ethiopia be involved? Might this King be called the Mahdi? What does the Bible say?
The Arab and Islamic World In the Bible, History, and Prophecy The Bible discusses the origins of the Arab world and discusses the Middle East in prophecy. What is ahead for the Middle East and those who follow Islam? What about the Imam Mahdi? What lies ahead for Turkey, Iran, and the other non-Arabic Muslims?

Barack Obama in Islamic Prophecy? There is actually a 17th century Shiite prophecy that some believe that Barack Obama will fulfill that will lead to a rising up of Islam.
When Will the Great Tribulation Begin? 2011, 2012, or 2013? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? What happens before the Great Tribulation in the “beginning of sorrows”? What happens in the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord? Is this the time of the Gentiles? When is the earliest that the Great Tribulation can begin? What is the Day of the Lord? Who are the 144,000?
