Christian residents of Egyptian border towns Rafah and Al-Arish have so far refused to leave the city, as a local church had advised, after they received leaflets containing messages threatening to blow up their property if they do not leave within 48 hours.

Rev. Gabriel Habib, priest at the Church of the Virgin Mary and the Archangel Michael in Al-Arish, said Christian residents had refused to leave temporarily to avoid fulfilling the extremists’ goal of forcing them out of their city.

We’d call it Ethnic Cleansing, if the roles were flipped...

We can pray.
Prayers that the Good Lord can protect and encourage these Believers. May they be lights that shine in a sea of darkness, and be used as instruments to open the eyes of the blind.

Whenever this subject comes up here,

I keep repeating this message, just to bring some awareness to what I think may be prophetically significant,

From a June 2012 news story: the Muslim Brotherhood’s Egyptian (then) presidential candidate, Mohammed Morsi stated that Christians will be forced to “convert, pay tribute, or leave.”

What this says to me is that in Egypt, Christians are essentially becoming ‘outcasts’ in their own country,

Isaiah Chapter 27:13
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem.”

Three things are mentioned here along with ‘in that day’ meaning the day of the Lord, yet future,

1. Believers are “ready to perish in the land of Assyria”
2. there are “outcasts” from the land of Egypt
3. The “great trumpet shall be blown”

The ‘great trumpet’ is (I believe) the Trump of God, the most important trumpet of all and the same one heard in Exodus 19 and last heard around 1500 BC at Mt Sinai,
