Egypt, the Great Pyramid, and the Open Door Ministry
Nov 28, 2012
I have been watching events from November 21-29 this year, since this is 65 years after the Palestinian Resolution was debated in the UN in 1947.
On November 29 Mr. Abbas of the Palestinian Authority will apply to the UN for non-member observer status, much like the Vatican today enjoys. This is a step toward recognition as a nation, and so it is not surprising that the Israelis strenuously oppose this move. They want Palestine for themselves, and their long-term plan is to cause a war that would give them an excuse to expel more (or all) Palestinians from that territory. This has been their long-term policy since the beginning.
Anyway, the showdown comes tomorrow, November 29, which is the 65th anniversary of the passage of the Palestinian Resolution.
The recent Israeli-Gaza conflict has to be seen in the context of this Resolution, as both sides sought to gain "position" in this fight. That conflict ended with a cease-fire agreement on November 21, brokered by Egypt's president Morsi. Morsi did not announce the completion of the agreement until Secretary of State Clinton was able to be present, so as to give America an ounce of credit for "helping" to broker the deal. It was a nice face-saving gesture on Morsi's part.
But then the next day, November 22, Morsi gave himself virtual dictatorial powers for the next six months--supposedly ending with the adoption of the new Constitution. They have been working on a new Constitution since the overthrow of Egypt's last Pharaoh, Hosni Mubarak, who was overthrown last year at the Red Sea. But it is difficult to overthrow one Pharaoh without another taking His place. History shows that most dictators give themselves power under a pretence that it is "temporary" and "necessary for stability and security." The excuse of "national security" covers a multitude of sins.
Morsi's power grab has brought the Egyptians back into the streets and to the brink of another revolution on the scale not seen since last year.
Isaiah 19 speaks prophetically of Egypt. Like most prophecies, there are various partial fulfillments over the centuries. It appears that the present revolutions in Egypt, beginning last year, have brought the nation back to the patterns in Isaiah 19, particularly verse 2:
2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians; and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbor; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.
This describes a divided country, perhaps civil war, and certainly shows hot disagreements between the people. In 2011 Mubarak's supporters, along with the army, were pitted against the people demanding "democracy." Mubarak lost that argument, and later Morsi won the presidential election. But this week Morsi has grabbed dictatorial power, supposedly to "protect the democratic revolution." After all, that argument has worked quite well in America and other places, so why not in Egypt?
Isaiah 19 then describes high unemployment in Egypt, weakened economically, politically, and spiritually. At that time, verse 17 says,
17 And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the Lord of hosts, which he hath determined against it.
In other words Egypt will be afraid of the Jewish state. I find it interesting that the prophet does not call it "Israel," nor even "Judah." He refers only to "the land of Judah," obviously referring to its inhabitants. In today's application, this would be the Zionist Jews, who have terrorized the whole region since 1948 and before. Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir were the two main terrorists of the 1940's, involved even in the assassination of world leaders trying to bring peace to the region. (If you doubt this, read their own biographies, as I have done, because they tell their own stories and were proud of being terrorists.)
Isaiah 19:19-20 then prophesies of the Great Pyramid of Gizeh. Gizeh means "border," because it was the border between Upper and Lower Egypt. The Pyramid was located in the middle of this border that ran from east to west.
19 In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. 20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and He shall send them a Saviour, and a great One, and He shall deliver them.
The Pyramid has been at that location for thousands of years, of course. Isaiah does not tell us that this "altar" would be BUILT in the future, but that it would be there when the prophecy was being fulfilled. In fact, it was to signify that God was about to deliver the Egyptians from their oppressors--that is, their pharaohs. This deliverance began last year in January 2011, when we were told to watch the month of January as a type of the month of Passover. Even as January is the first month on our western calendar, it was a type and parallel to the Hebrew month of Abib when Passover was instituted under Moses--and when Pharaoh was overthrown at the Red Sea.
Essentially, Isaiah prophesies that the Egyptians will be converted to Yahweh--who was incarnated in Bethlehem as Jesus Christ. Egypt is prophesied to be a Christian nation at some point in history, and the Great Pyramid will bear witness to this.
In the past few months, of course, we have been involved in the work of repairing the breach in the wall of the New Jerusalem. The revelation of this work began in April, but the real understanding came at our Pentecost conference in Texas in early June, which I reported at the time. The repair of the breach was to take 52 days, according to the pattern of Nehemiah 6:15. This Scripture said the wall was repaired on 25 Elul on the Hebrew calendar, so we applied this to our calendar in 2012. The 52-day repair work was to begin July 22 and go until September 12 (or 25 Elul).
July 22 was also the 204th day of the year, and this related the work to the Great Pyramid, which has 203 layers of stone. The capstone, which the builders rejected so many years ago, was the 204th layer.
Hence, we understood that this work had to do with the Great Pyramid and the prophecies of Isaiah 19 regarding the conversion of Egypt. The final result of Isaiah's prophecy, and of our work as well, is seen in Isaiah 19:21-25,
21 And the Lord shall be known to Egypt; and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the Lord, and perform it. 22 And the Lord shall smite Egypt; He shall smite and heal it; and they shall return even to the Lord, and He shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them. 23 In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve [God in Christ] with the Assyrians. 24 In that day shall Israel [not the counterfeit state] be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land, 25 whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, "Blessed be Egypt, My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel Mine inheritance."
I did an audio teaching years ago on "The Redemption of Egypt," based upon this passage. You can listen to it in our Audio section.
Even though our own Pentagon decided in 2001 to overthrow Egypt and other nations, as General Wesley Clark has testified (posted on U-Tube), God Himself has a plan that the Pentagon does not understand. God's plan is to make Egypt and Assyria (now modern Syria) into Christian nations. The current revolutions in those countries are being promoted for more nefarious purposes, of course, but God has a good purpose in the end.
The presence of the Great Pyramid in the middle of Egypt is a silent witness to the sovereignty of God and the divine plan for Egypt. We are now in the time that isaiah testified, saying, "the Lord shall smite Egypt." This smiting is not to destroy them, but to correct them, for "He shall smite and heal it."
A few months ago, while we were yet doing the 52-day work from July 22 to September 12, the Lord spoke to me about a second 52-day cycle, beginning October 8 and ending November 29. This repair work was thus to be done twice this year in order to be established by a double witness.
The first cycle began on July 22, which is 7/22 on our calendar. It thus correlates with the 8th day of Tabernacles, which occurs on 7/22 of the Hebrew calendar.
The second cycle began on October 8, which was the actual 8th day of Tabernacles (7/22) this year.
Today is November 28. We are nearing the end of this second 52-day cycle. Tomorrow is November 29, the end of 52 days, and it is the day that Palestine will apply to the UN for non-member observer status. It is also significant that Egypt's president Morsi has become another pharaoh-oppressor to be overthrown. We should watch the situation carefully in the light of Isaiah's prophecy that God will smite Egypt and deliver them from their oppressors.
The connection to the Great Pyramid was established a year ago, when I was led to construct a scale model of the Great Pyramid on November 29, 2011, and then place the capstone upon it the next day, November 30.
At the time, I had no idea that we would see this manifest a year later. We had no knowledge of the 52-day cycle in 2012 that would end November 29, nor did we know that the sign of the Great Pyramid would emerge this year on July 22, 2012. Yet as the revelation unfolded over many months, we were given revelation and insight to know the times and seasons.
We are now getting ready for the conference this week end in Dallas. We arrived in Dallas last evening and are staying at our daughter's house. The conference begins Friday, November 30, a year after we placed the capstone on the model of the Great Pyramid. It signified the acceptance of Christ, who is the "Stone that the builders rejected." Events have proven that the nation of Egypt itself is involved in this. In fact, it was in Egypt thousands of years ago where the capstone was rejected. Hence, it seems natural that the true Capstone (Jesus Christ) ought to be accepted in Egypt. I believe this is the force behind Isaiah's prophecy, leading to the day that the Egyptians will know Yahweh-Jesus.
In other words, the prophecy of the Great Pyramid in Isaiah 19 is based upon Egypt's acceptance of the true Capstone, Jesus Christ, which reverses the rejection of this Stone thousands of years ago.
What we are doing now is to establish the spiritual pattern-event in order to prophesy the path that Egypt will soon take as a nation in the world. This is a big part of the divine plan to pour out His Spirit in the world on a large scale. Perhaps it is the "door opener" of the Open Door Ministry, whereby the Gospel of the Kingdom will be released to the world on a large scale.
We may not see this release immediately, but I believe that the Word going forth at this time will open the door and will make the Open Door Ministry inevitable in the time ahead.
