I was praying about the situation in Egypt this week and I was speaking to the Lord about their leader Mubarak. I knew by the Holy Spirit that Egyptians had received the leader that God gave them as judgment for their worship of a false god and their rejection of the true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; Yeshua the Messiah.
Daniel 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
Romans 13:1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities , for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
Colossians 1:16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities ; all things were created by him and for him.
Of course these scriptures apply to the United States as well. God has given us a wicked leader as judgment because of the wickedness of the hearts of the people. America was turned over to Obama for rejecting the true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Americans pay lip service to God but their hearts are far from him.
Egyptians have now decided that after 30 years of despotic rule by Mubarak they want him out. And exactly who and what type of government do they really believe they will end up with after their “people’s revolution?” The Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia law? That’s like going from the frying pan into the fire. Here is their creed: "God is our objective; the Koran is our law; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations."
This is just a huge farce because the problem is of course spiritual. The nation of Egypt is under the dominion of a very powerful ancient principality called “the Spirit of Egypt.”
CAPTIVITY is a form of judgment that God has always used as a form of punishment, and ultimately redemption, to those peoples and nations that reject Him and His ways. As a matter of fact, the word "captivity" appears in the Bible 127 times. And as long as the Egyptians continue to reject Yeshua / Jesus Christ, they will continue to be bound and held captive by many evil "Pharaoh's" despite their vain attempt to be set free with a “people’s revolution.”
If you look at the history of ancient Judea and Israel, God sent them into captivity countless times for rejecting Him. Including the most famous captivity of all which was when Pharaoh held the Israelites captive for 430 years! (Exodus 12:40-41.)
If you look at the history of the world, captivity has always existed in nations that rejected God. Sometimes the captivity is to brutal dictators and ruthless regimes. Sometimes the captivity is to famine, pestilence and poverty. And now we see that the WHOLE WORLD is held captive by the Spirit of Babylon until Jesus returns to set up His Kingdom.
The only true freedom is the LIBERTY found in a relationship with the Almighty One, Yeshua the Messiah. A nation can change governments and they can promise “change you can believe in”, and have all the "people's revolutions" you want, but if that nation or any person does not acknowledge the true God of all creation and obey Him, then they are sent into captivity.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:12.
In Christ, Sarah Beveridge
