For those not living in the United States it may be hard to appreciate the round-the-clock media propaganda campaign that the American public has been subjected since the election of Donald Trump. It has been almost surreal. For the past six months the so-called mainstream media has hardly covered anything except how Trump colluded with Putin to steal the presidency.
But then, suddenly, a couple of weeks ago it all stopped. Now, a new hysteria is being whipped up. Forget Trump the Putin puppet, Donald Trump is a white supremacist and a supporter of the infamous Ku Klux Klan.
What happened to Russia-gate? Apparently, the story came completely unraveled after some retired intelligence professionals know as the VIPS published their findings —revealing that the Democratic National Committee computers could not have been hacked; rather, the emails were a deliberate leak to Wikileaks, which is what Julian Assange said all along. The entire Russia/Trump collusion was exposed as pure fiction.
Knowing that they were riding a dead horse the media have evidently been given a new script by their secret intelligence managers —to go after the president on the grounds that he is racist.
Just as the Russian hack was spun by British Intelligence , the same anti-America agents have apparently been deployed among both white supremacists and the recently formed, Soros-funded Antifa (anti-fascists) anarchists, in order to goad the extremists elements of both sides into a clash in order to ignite a broader confrontation —even a civil war. It is an old strategy of the empire known as gang/countergang.
Evidently, the staged confrontation in Charlottesville was intended to be the modern Fort Sumpter, which was the first battle in what became known as the American Civil War. At least, that appears to be the intent.
What does any of this have to do with Bible prophecy though?
About 20 years ago I came to the realization that Egypt in prophecy is a symbol for America. That ought not be such a stretch for Jehovah’s Witnesses to manage since Egypt and America are part of the same symbolic, composite beast —Egypt being the first world power in prophecy and America being the last; not including the actual last king, the eighth, which springs from the seven.
The prophecy of Daniel helps establish this pattern, referring to the king of the south during the time of the end as “Egypt.” Since the literal nation of Egypt was the original king of the south it depicts the king of the south in the last scene as “Egypt.” Even the Watchtower accepts this.
Likewise, the 11th chapter of Revelation states that the two witnesses are killed and their corpses were exposed on the broadway of the great city known as Sodom and Egypt in a spiritual sense, where Jesus was also killed.
Obviously Jesus was not killed in Egypt. But he was killed by the Roman authorities. And like America now, Rome was a continuation of the same imperial system that began with Egypt. So, “Egypt” may symbolize various successors of the original empire. While Ezekiel devotes three entire chapters to the judgment upon Egypt, which are considered in detail in the chapter called Downfall of America, the prophecy of Isaiah adds details not found in Ezekiel.
The 19th chapter of Isaiah begins with the following: “A pronouncement against Egypt: Look! Jehovah is riding on a swift cloud and is coming into Egypt. The worthless gods of Egypt will tremble before him, and the heart of Egypt will melt within it. ‘I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians, and they will fight one another, each against his brother and his neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom.’”
The prophecy of Ezekiel reveals that the judgment against Egypt is part of the day belonging to Jehovah. In fact, the prophecy states that not just Egypt, but all nations come under God’s judgment. Ezekiel 30:2-3 states: “Wail, ‘Alas, the day is coming!’ For the day is near, yes, a day of Jehovah is near. It will be a day of clouds, an appointed time of nations.”
That being the case, the imagery of Jehovah riding on a swift cloud and coming into Egypt must coincide with the second coming of Christ, which as the 2nd Psalm indicates throws the nations into tumult.
But as regards current events and the sudden drive to ignite a civil war, which even the United Nations has issued an early warning over what it views as one-sided racism, the prophecy of Isaiah indicates that Jehovah is the one inciting Egyptian against Egyptian. What that means is, that, God sets things into motion and does not prevent an evil outcome as the result of his coming.
In an article published in 2011 entitled Doom of the American Republic, I suggested that civil war was coming. That was six years ago. Now talk of a second civil war is a common op-ed subject. There is little question the stage is being set for a violent clash. Among other things, we may expect civil war to erupt when Jehovah comes riding into America on a swift cloud.
