    I don't see this being a late 1970's Iranian style religious based uprising.

    What the people in the streets want and what they get will no doubt be two different things.

    Do you think that the "students" in Iran in the 70's wanted what they ended up getting?

    It is Possible...

    ...that the entire mid-East will soon be under some form of radical Muslim government. Even Iraq will succumb to the pressure in order to stop the terrorist bombings. Look at Viet Nam...more than 50,000 American GI's died and all we did was cleared the thick forests for the communists to have an easier path to the south.

    Any one who does not think the mid-East will eventually be under Muslim rule has their head in the sand.

    Israel will have to stand alone in the final days, and this is prophesy in action. Jordan, and Syria are in the crosshairs of some form of radical Muslim take over!

    And when it comes to Israel needing help, there will be no one brave enough to go against the radicals, for fear of offending the Muslims living within their nations. This includes America.

    Sorry, but, I don't see a democracy coming forth in Eygpt.

    Do you see democracy arriving in the US? The dictatorship of the 51%?

    Pray not... Is all the liberals that have been calling America a democracy since the 1960s that have caused many of our problems here and abroad.

    But, is Delay Possible?

    The question on my mind is, is can we plead with God for more time?

    That is, is the church age a parenthetical clause in Bible Prophecy or is the church age a fixed, as in Edict of God, time.

    Can Christians make a difference by praying for moderates to win out?

    Or, do we just roll over and let it happen while sitting on our hands?

    What think you all?

    I think that we would be foolish to not carry our prayers concerning these world events to God, even if He has everything on His timetable (which I would presume is the case). We're called to carry all things to the Lord in prayer, even if His answer is not ours. We're also called to agree with His divine will, even when He convicts us, convinces us, or even disciplines us, but some have problems in letting God be God in that regard.

    We HAVE made a difference in the past, but I see our ability to make a difference evaporating, which leads me to believe that this is God's ordained time to start the events leading to the end times. He's been at it for about 50 years in earnest -- rearranging the world powers, re-starting the Roman government (in a sense via the EU), building up the key players in end time events and shutting down others who are not mentioned in Scripture (like us).

    Nothing is by accident, even though we, living through all this stuff day-by-day, think that it is. Our vantage point as humans is always skewed. By way of example I often think about Jesus walking our earth. Looking back, we say, "duh... why did they have such a hard time getting it..." but for the people living the experience, it seemed much like our current world re-arrangement. Just "stuff" happening, seemingly at random.

    No the students of Iran did not want what came. What do you know about the culture of Eygpt? Have you ever studied it, or taken a trip there to observe?

    All the research I have heard indicates that the vast majority of Egyptians are Muslim and would not "balk" at a reurn to Sharia based law...

    Now, that is scary...

    Scarier than Christian Reconstructionists imposing Levitical Law in the entire world?

    No particular knowledge of the culture - never been there - never studied it.

    Not sure what that would add to our understanding of the events taking place there.

    I doubt that anyone can tell us who will end up in power or what their agenda will be regardless of what some think that they know.

    What's your guess?

    2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    And, niether am I...

    I am willing to wait for His Coming, if it means that people will repent, get Saved and enter the Kingdom.

    I haven't heard of any *TRUE CHRISTIAN* desiring a return to Levitical Law.

    Please provide a link to a respectable news source showing this to have happened.


    Trust me I will join any group that rejects and resists any desiring to make the US a Theocracy whether Christian or otherwise...

    How do you define "True Christian?" You exclude anyone who thinks the OT applies to Christians? You a hyper dispensationalist who thinks the True Church began with St Paul?
