Mystery Egypt. What is it about the Middle East? Years ago I stopped at the Great Pyramids of Giza on the way back from a research trip and for some reason felt compelled to pray one hundred Our Fathers as I sat on a short wall near the second largest pyramid, Khafre (or "Chephren"). My point here: right as the prayers started, a little sandstorm kicked up around me and there was a constant wind and sand my way the entire time I prayed, ending precisely at the end of the last Our Father -- very peculiar. Perhaps just a coincidence (if you believe in coincidence).
But what is it about Egypt? What is it about Israel? What is it about this region?
Is it simply the age -- which is biblical? Is it just that it's the region, the old haunt (Israel), of Cain and Abel? Is it because it's the center of the globe? Is it because there is something dark in the religious beliefs? Is it -- the tension between Arabs and Israel, the constant problems, the violence -- because of what famed Jewish writer Arthur Koestler asserted: that most Jews in Europe and thus many in the Mideast (where they migrated after World War Two) are not genetic Jews but Slavs and Germans who converted to Judaism in the Middle Ages and are thus resented by those in the region who have a different genetic heritage? However you want to try to explain it, Israel is certainly a power spot -- for such a tiny country, occupying a phenomenal percentage of global attention, the birth and death place of Jesus (and homeland of Abraham and David and Joseph and endless figures in the Old Testament).
But Egypt (which is mentioned 669 times in Scripture) also has a lot of energy surrounding it, not all of it Godly, some of it originating, in fact, with the occult. And here we get to the crux of what may have been in the wind.
Many in the realm of psychics and the New Age revere the Land of the Pharaohs as a place where arcane power is even funneled through those pyramids. At the Great Sphinx, an inscription lists the names of three aspects of the local sun deity of that period, Khepera-Rê-Atum. Did you ever contemplate the possible meaning of half-human, half-animal depictions?
Giza itself is a necropolis -- which means a place of the dead. Was that what whirls around there? Or more? On the one hand, it has been a hotspot, since 1968, for phenomena associated with Blessed Mary -- whose luminous silhouette has been seen by millions above various Coptic Orthodox churches in the Cairo area.
On the other hand, it is a hotspot for strange, eerie lights in the sky.
The entire region seems like the stage on which the drama of a battle between occult evil and the forces of good is played out. There are portals from spiritual places; during the Black Plague -- which ravaged the Middle East -- strange lights were seen from tombs. While Egypt was home to the first monotheistic religion (and was where Joseph, Mary, and Jesus sought refuge), it was also the land of gods and goddesses -- of those strange hieroglyphs, of the caricatures that are so alien, of sun signs, astrologers, and the Ankh, which represents physical and eternal life (and is used on Tarot cards). Some believe the swastika -- or "sun sign" -- even originated here (along with the precepts of Babylon and masonry).
Whatever the truth of all that, there always has been a spookiness, and on the same visit, back in the late 1980s, I toured the National Museum of Egypt (right there where all the protests are now taking place) and strode past the sarcrophagi and mummies and the relics of King Tutankhamun, or "Tut," which supposedly carry a "curse." That idea started a few months after the tomb's opening when Lord Carnarvon, an aristocrat who financed the Tut expedition, was taken ill and rushed to Cairo, dying a few days later. The exact cause of death was not known, but it seemed to be from an infection started by an insect bite. Legend has it that when he died there was a short power failure and all the lights throughout Cairo went out. His son reported that back on his estate in England his favorite dog howled and suddenly dropped dead. Even more strange, when the mummy of Tutankhamun was unwrapped in 1925, it was found to have a wound on the left cheek in the same exact position as the insect bite on Carnarvon that lead to his death. On the day that the door to the tomb was first discovered, the chief explorer's canary was eaten by a cobra.
Here perhaps we get one solid indication: many through the decades, including secular scientists (some of whom were victims), have testified to what seems like a strange "curse" associated with relics from Tut.
There are wooden artifacts representing either a lion-headed goddess or a woman wearing a similar kind of mask, which probably connected in some way with the performance of magic.
How many times in the Bible did God warn Egypt? How many plagues? Didn't God even say He would set Egyptians against Egyptians?
"Since the days of the pharaohs in ancient Egypt, the occult has entangled in its web the black arts of espionage, subversion, and revolution," says Secret Societies author Michael Howard. "Today it still affects politics. Participants in the occult conspiracy play their sometimes sinister games with the lives of millions of ordinary men and women."
At the least, there is room for speculation.
Like anywhere, there is good and bad here. But the mind always wanders back to the pyramids and the sand and the Sphinx and the eeriness of likenesses on those large granite tombstones that are right at the very epicenter of current upheaval (the museum itself was vandalized last week), an upheaval that may one day spread beyond this mysterious land.
Yet, we can know this: if we have hatred in our hearts, a thousand papal blessings will do us no good; if we have the love of Jesus in our hearts, a thousand curses can never touch us.
Just something to consider....the north-south axis (31 degrees east of Greenwich) is the longest land meridian. Oddly enough....the east-west axis (30 degrees north) is the longest land parallel. Oddly enough....there is only one place that these longest land-lines of the earth can cross, the Pyramid.
This isn’t spiritual....it is science, technology and a vast amount of knowledge that wasn’t readily apparent for this civilization period. They couldn’t have picked this site by accident....which really makes you wonder the purpose behind the construction.
Yup. Pretty sure they're pre-dynastic, pre-literate totems.
Daniel 10:10-12 speaks of The prince of Persia. This is evidently a fallen angel working under the direction of Satan who operates as the "god of this world" (2 Corinthians 4:4: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them). The Prince of Persia withstood the messenger angel for twenty-one days (Daniel 10:13: But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia) and hindered him from coming to Daniel. Michael, one of the chief princes,comes to the rescue of the messenger angel and relieves him for a time so that he might bring the interpretation of the vision (Daniel 10:13-14)
The prince of Grecia's coming is prophesied by the messenger angel: "Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come." The prince of Grecia (or Greece) would be another of Satan's mighty princes.
I would imagine that Muslim countries are absolutely infested with these "princes".
For “Princes” read “demons” perhaps?
OUr Pastor preached just recently that when we invaded Iraq the spirit of Mammom was released and that it has infected America. He is a conservative, not blaming America or saying the war was wrong,, just felt that he’d had a revalation that that had happened. Babylon was it’s stronghold. This spirit is an actual entity which promises money and especially security; but actually brings confusion and the destruction of both.
‘You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead - your next stop, the Twilight Zone!’
10-4 Thanks for reply. I enjoy your posts. We should be aware with non-stop prayer.
Yes! He is talking about demonic strongholds.
I believe, for example, that the city of San Francisco is one that has been given over by God to their filth and darkness. I believe there is a "Prince of San Francisco" which keeps the people of the city in bondage. This is not to say that there are no churches there that make a gallant effort to spread the Gospel. But as long as the majority of the people there refuse to repent and turn to God for salvation, they will remain enslaved.
Any place that seems to be mired in darkness and ignorance and oppression most probably is firmly in the grip of these demonic "princes".
