Embassy: Egypt is “Gods people” destined for Glory

The International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem tries to build bridges of reconciliation between Jews and Arabs.

The embassy's stand with Israel, is conditional of an end time reconciliation between Jews and Arabs.

There is basically nothing wrong in building bridges between Jews and Arabs. But such a bridge must be built on the gospel of Jesus the Messiah. If not, such bridges will be of hardly any use for the Kingdom of Heaven.

The Objectives of ICEJ.org is interesting reading. One of the objectives are:

To build bridges of reconciliation between Jew and Arab. “…Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.” (Isaiah 19:25)

Source: ICEJ.org.

If this prophecy of Isaiah was fulfilled 1500 years ago, the International Christian Embassy is seeking a fulfillment of a fulfilled prophecy.

A prophecy can have multiple fulfillment’s through the ages. But “Egypt my people” is not an end time prophecy, and the implications of using it wrongly, can have devastating consequences.  To be a true lover of Israel, you must surely defend Israel, teach Biblical Zionism and support the Jewish state and the Jewish people. But also give them the gospel.  The truth is that Islam has made the large majority of present day “Egypt, sons and daughters of the devil”.

Egypt was surely once up on a time “God’s people”, the sons and daughters of Ishmael. Today, under Islam, the Egyptians are absolutely not “gods people”. Neither will they become so during the reign of the One World Religion.

This end time work of ICEJ.org is particular dangerous, since the rule of the final anti-Christ surely will build “a bridge” between Jews and Arabs, and reconcile all religions into one.

The end time view of ICEJ.org seems to lead this ministry into the camp of the end time unity religion.  For the sake of “peace” and glory.

  1. There are Christians living in Egypt called the Copts to assume there are no Christians beloved of God in Egypt is wrong. Hal Lindsay said last night reading a statement from an eye witnesses in Cairo that the original protesters had left and that the Muslim Brotherhood had taken over the streets. They all were carrying the same cell phones and blankets.

    1. Dear Edie.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      The tribes of Israel are God’s chosen people. Both the good, the bad and the ugly. The believers of Jesus the Messiah have been grafted, and enlarged Israel as God’s chosen people. This enlargement includes believers in Egypt. They are surely a small minority. 90 per cent of the Egyptians are Muslims. 9 per cent are Coptic Christians.

      Pure mathematics tells us that “Egypt” is not “Gods people” today. There is no reason to believe that the Muslims in Egypt will leave Islam, and become “God’s people” tomorrow. Before Islam took over, the Egyptians were sons and daughters of Ishmael. Under Byzantine Christian rule around 500 A.D, they worshiped Jesus as the King of Kings. At that time, “Egypt was God’s people”. Prophecy fulfilled.

      1. “The tribes of Israel are God’s chosen people.”

        Romans 9:25-33 (New International Version, ©2010)

        25 As he says in Hosea:

        “I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people;
        and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one,”[a]

        26 and,

        “In the very place where it was said to them,
        ‘You are not my people,’
        there they will be called ‘children of the living God.’”[b]

        27 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel:

        “Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea,
        only the remnant will be saved.
        28 For the Lord will carry out
        his sentence on earth with speed and finality.”[c]

        29 It is just as Isaiah said previously:

        “Unless the Lord Almighty
        had left us descendants,
        we would have become like Sodom,
        we would have been like Gomorrah.”[d]
        Israel’s Unbelief
        30 What then shall we say? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith; 31 but the people of Israel, who pursued the law as the way of righteousness, have not attained their goal. 32 Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone. 33 As it is written:

        “See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes people to stumble
        and a rock that makes them fall,
        and the one who believes in him will never be put to shame.”

      2. Dear All readers.

        Aaron has left News That Matters, after internal disagreement. He is working for the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem. He has started a Facebook campaign, and recommend people to stop reading this blog.

        You are all free people. No one will be forced or tempted to visit this blog.

        If we can not have a fair and fee dialogue about faith, and understanding of the scriptures, we are ruled by a spirit that wants to keep us in bondage and slavery.

  2. That’s not even close to being the truth Ivar.

    Your inability to comprehend the nuances of the English language, which is not your mother tongue, has caused you to make many errors, on this blog and in our personal communication. You are too proud to admit this weakness, and you continue bringing shame to yourself and the Gospel.

    You are like someone who never learned to drive properly who insists on taking his car out on the road, causing accidents that hurt yourself and others.

    I pity you.

    1. Dear Aaron.

      Shalom.

      Why do you comment on a blog, you have told people to leave? You are breaking your own instructions.

      You motive is surely not good. You have not come to be humble, and seek for the truth. I can see that you are more interested in kicking the man, rather than the ball. I do not know much Egyptian language you can read or speak , but this is totally besides the point. My English is good enough to see that Malcolm Hedding, in this case is wrong.

      Please: Let us debate the topic of debate:

      Is the ICEJ.org use of scripture right or wrong?

  3. I left it up to people to choose whether or not to continue reading this blog, and merely told them I was “withdrawing my endorsement of its contents”

    You have no idea what that means do you? Never mind.

    The ICEJ is, as I have said more than once, a great deal less then 100% perfect. I have seen it make mistakes myself, and I have also told Malcolm Hedding where I thought he was making a mistake. He always listened respectfully (unlike yourself) and he gave me a respectful answer (also unlike yourself.)

    In this specific case, I admit to being unsure, and I thought you did the right thing in going to Malcolm and stating your case. He replied to you, giving what I thought was a perfectly sensible and Scriptural answer.

    I also tried to explain to you how you were reading what he originally said wrong, and how you didn’t even understand what it was you were criticizing.

    But that wasn’t good enough for you, you had to go and attack him and the ICEJ on your blog.

    Your own motives are also very impure. You have been supporting the ICEJ for years, and its positions were there for you to review on the website all that time.

    Then one day you decide to launch a flaming attack of it, simply because I work there and you have decided I needed to be punished for the crime of disagreeing with you.

    I have received more letters from former friends of yours in Norway. People who used to love and trust you and now have a very different opinion.

    You can add my name to this list.

    Examine your heart Ivar. You say you are using this blog to do the Lord’s work, but apparently you also occasionally use it to settle personal scores as well. I am one person you’ve done this to, and there are others. Someday you will have to give an account.

    1. Dear Aaron.

      Shalom.

      You have explained your case. And as I said, your motives are not noble, and your messages is not based on the truth. This is the end of the matters, Aaron.

      The only thing I have invited the readers into, is a debate on the use of scriptures. You are not interested in doing so.

      Please leave this blog, as you have instructed others to do. It not you expose your self as a hypocrite.

  4. I’m leaving, but not before I remind you that a “hypocrite” is someone who uses one set of standards for himself and another for everyone else.

    You liked wikileaks a lot, but you don’t seem to like it when someone exposes your own secrets. Your former friends don’t like it either. Some of them are not believers, so I guess that makes you think it’s okay to stab them in the back by “Exposing” them on your blog.

    I don’t agree with this. Neither do the Scriptures you like to quote so much.

    So I guess we both have something to repent of.

    The Lord bless you.

    1. Dear Aaron.

      Shalom.

      So let us leave it like that. You are welcome back to debate faith and correct use of Bible verses. Lets leave our personal differences aside. May the name of Jesus be lifted High and glorified in all we do. Amen.

      May Lord Jesus bless you and keep you for eternity. Amen.
