If you thought 2020 couldn't get any stranger, well, think again. It's the year when many people realised many end-time Bible prophesies suddenly began fruition with covid-19 and civil unrest around the world and Israel making peace with more and more Arab nations.
Another "end-time" prophesy could be about to unravel. On Saturday, 34 people were killed in a terror attack in Ethiopia after a passenger bus in the Benishangul-Gumuz region was ambushed by armed attackers. Ethnic violence among members of various ethnic groups in Benishangul-Gumuz regional state in recent months has left hundreds dead and thousands of others displaced. The clashes are mainly over access to power and land resources.Ethiopia appears to be fast approaching civil war. Fighting between forces loyal to the federal government headed by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) has claimed hundreds of lives and is threatening to rip the country apart. While battles rage on the ground, the two sides are also fighting a war of words. Each is trying to rally their people and also to convince the world that they have the moral high ground. The government in Addis Ababa and the TPLF accuse one another of firing the first shots. Mr Abiy has said that army officers were murdered in cold blood.
OUR ENVIRONMENT IS COLLAPSING JUST AS SEVERELY AS OUR SOCIETY: We are beginning to see certain areas of the world becoming impossible to live in, areas which for years have been heavily populated are now for certain parts of the year at least "unlivable."
In a remarkable speech, last month during a ceremony marking "a peace deal between Israel and Sudan," (remarkable in itself), President Trump lifted a 2,600-year old, Old Testament prophecy right from the pages of Isaiah and dropping it into the laps of the world press. Sudan borders Ethiopia and has itself been struggling to contain a civil war since 2013 and blames Ethiopia of being involved. The whole region is a tinderbox.
Who are the Two Witnesses in Bible Prophecy? Are they Moses and Elijah? Enoch and Elijah? The Old and New Testament? Or are they something more? A shocking discovery awaits and will blow your mind!
Mr Trump's speech.
I am not sure of President Trump's understanding of the Old Testament but when he claimed Egypt will “blow up” a disputed dam that Ethiopia is building on the Blue Nile he brought to life a prophecy which until recently had remained a mystery for centuries.
What is waiting for the US and UK in Bible prophecy? Ezekiel was commissioned by God to watch over them and they were blessed with power and glory but in the last days, it is very clear to see the once mighty and powerful countries are just observers of the plunder coming before the day of Jehovah!
Mr Trump went on to say regarding the massive GERD dam Ethiopia is building, the project has created a “very dangerous situation,”, Trump said because one of the country’s downstream neighbours, Egypt, which relies on the Nile and its tributaries for most of its irrigation and drinking water, “is not going to be able to live that way.” Suggesting the massive dam will cut off the Nile's life-giving water supply to Egypt.
Can we, "weigh a pound of fire," "measure a bushel of wind," or "call back a day that has passed," of course we can: Daniel, shut up these words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many will roam to and fro and knowledge will increase.
The president’s comments came during a ceremony marking a peace deal between Israel and Sudan, Sudan ironically is also downstream from Ethiopia's dam. “They’ll end up blowing up the dam,” Trump said of Egypt. “And I said it and I say it loud and clear – they’ll blow up the dam. And they have to do something.”
Mr Trumps claims although unhelpful to Ethiopia have brought to light one of Isaiah's more exciting prophecies. Ethiopia's new dam, the Renaissance Dam is almost complete and will bring much-needed hydroelectricity to the country, however, a long-running dispute between Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt has threatened to boil over into war with Sudan and Egypt worried their very water supply will be compromised.
Ezekiel 38: In the great battle of Gog and Magog Great Britain and the United States Of America, Tarshish and its "young lions," can only look on and muster only a polite, meek diplomatic protest rather than a threat of retaliation as the mass army of the North invade Israel
Below is a small segment of Isiah's prophecy of a war between Ethiopia and Egypt.
Ethiopia's war with Egypt.
Isaiah 18:1 Woe to the land of whirring insect wings in the region of Ethiopia.
Isaiah 18:2 It sends envoys by sea. Across the waters in papyrus vessels (Egypt used papyrus vessels), saying: Go you, swift messengers, to a tall and smooth-skinned nation. (Egyptians were famous for shaving hair from their bodies). To a people feared everywhere. To a strong conquering nation, whose land is washed away by rivers.
Interestingly, Isaiah 19:1 begins with a "pronouncement against Egypt." Jehovah is riding on a swift cloud and is coming into Egypt.
Isaiah 19:2 I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians and they will fight one another.
Isaiah 19:3 And the spirit of Egypt will become bewildered.
Isaiah 19: I will hand Egypt over to a hard master. And a harsh king will rule over them.
Isaiah 19:5 The water of the sea will be dried up. And the river will become parched and dry and the rivers will stink: The Nile canals of Egypt will become low and parched.
Isaiah 19:7 The plants along the Nile will dry up and be blown away.
Isaiah 19:8 And the fishermen shall mourn.
Isaiah 19:14 Jehovah has poured out on Egypt a spirit of confusion;
Time will tell whether events will escalate between the two sides.Almost 86% of the water reaching Egypt originates from Ethiopia. This can rise to almost 95% in the rainy seasons. Despite Ethiopia’s massive contribution to the Nile River flow, its use of the water from the river system is almost nothing. It also still rankles that Egypt opposed external funding being sought which thwarted Ethiopia’s past attempts to develop water storage facilities and use the Blue Nile water for hydropower generation and irrigation
