Muslim Brotherhood Gaining Political Power in Egyptian Elections

Groups with goals like the Muslim Brotherhood seem to be gaining political power in Egypt’s elections, though final results are many weeks away:

The Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists are expected to be the biggest winners, seizing a plurality and possibly majority of parliament.In contrast, liberal, leftist and secular parties entered the race weak and divided…

Backers of the Brotherhood and Islamic groups like the ultraconservative Salafis turned out in heavy numbers, while others said their main goal in voting was to try to keep the Islamists in check.

The voting process, long and complicated, is staggered over the next six weeks across 27 provinces, divided into thirds with runoffs held a week after the first round in each location…

Islamist parties, which had all been officially licensed after Mubarak’s ouster, are expected to make big wins in the three-round elections that run through until January 10.

The Muslim Brotherhood does not wish to accept a standard secular government, but instead longs for a pro-multinational Islamic caliphate that crosses current borders.

Notice what the Muslim Brotherhood has indicated that it wants:

“The Islamic nation,” its charter states, “must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state”—ideally a re-established caliphate, stretching from Spain across the Middle East and Central Asia to Indonesia, to be governed according to Islamic sharia law.

…the [Muslim Brotherhood] Society was established for, that is, establishing the State of Islam, headed by the Islamic Caliphate, in order to establish Allah religion on Allah’s land…(Source: The Muslim Brotherhood – in its own words Translation of “Jihad is the way” by Mustafa Mashhur Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, 1996-2002 by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik. viewed 04/30/11)

According to many Muslims, “Allah’s land” is supposedly all nations from Spain to Indonesia, although I believe that mainly the area from Morocco to possibly Afghanistan should be considered to be in play, perhaps even involving Pakistan and others.

The show of power by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and the statements a few weeks ago by the likely next Prime Minister of Tunisia (see Tunisia’s Expected Prime Minister Claims to be part of the Sixth Caliphate), demonstrate that the idea of an Islamic caliphate, which is the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is a reality that many are trying to now bring about.

But this should not be a surprise to regular readers of this page. For years, based upon the understanding that we in the Living Church of God have concerning end-time biblical prophecy, I have warned that an Islamic confederation would rise up in the Middle East and North Africa.

The King of the South will rise up and the Muslim Brotherhood hopes to make its version of an Islamic empire reality. Events in the Middle East and North Africa are moving in that direction.  We in the Living Church of God have long taught that the Bible teaches that the King of the South would be supported by Egypt (Daniel 11:40-43).  We have also taught that it may be led by Egypt:

The northern Sudan, anciently referred to as Cush, was once part of the Egyptian empire—a region where the future King of the South may headquarter (News and Prophecy. World Ahead Weekly Update, May 24, 2007).

Egypt probably will be the King of the South…historically they have been…The King of the South is probably Egypt or possibly Saudi Arabia (Meredith RC. Where are we now in Bible prophecy? Sermon, Charlotte, NC, April 30, 2011)

Many events are aligning with our understanding of prophecy.  More will as well.

Watch (Mark 13:37).
