 From a Church in Egypt

A pastor in a large church in Cairo, who has close links with Scripture Union, has sent this account of current events.

Over the last few months the Lord has clearly spoken to us many times to prepare ourselves for something to come. For what, we did not know, nor could we ever have imagined the magnitude of this situation!

I want to start first with giving thanks to the Lord that though the Church building is located right next to the hottest spot of confrontation between the security forces, the army and the largest demonstrations, the Church building is unharmed. Though two main government buildings only a few meters away from us were on fire and heavily damaged. At the moment we are not able to reach the Church and to meet there.

Our prayer meetings had begun to intensify the last three months, accompanied with forty days of fasting by the end of the year, in which more than one thousand two hundred (1200) people participated. We heard many prophetic messages about what is to come, clear words indicating a huge change is coming in 2011. On New Years eve, a clear word from Exodus 34:10 came to us saying, that He is going to things that no one ever heard before in our land. The feeling we had was similar to the feelings of Esther, a time of a great danger mixed with a time of great victory, and how the Lord put her in this position for such a time as this (Esther 4:14).

As I said in the beginning, we could never have imagined this situation! So, while we are going to the streets with our neighbors to protect our homes from the mobs, we are still on our knees in prayer, praying in small groups all over the city. As a leadership team we are trying to form action groups, to organize our efforts to respond to medical needs, to participate in cleaning the city from the huge amount of trash accumulation, and also to coordinate traffic control, since all the police traffic agents have left their positions leaving the streets in total chaos.

Our people are encouraged and courageously active in helping with practical needs, however, we need your prayerful support as the situation is not stable at all.

Pray with us for:

The safety of the church and boldness of our people, (perhaps like Esther, we are here for such a time like this) , the new relationships that are being made as our church members are meeting some of their neighbors for the first time.

Pray also that each one of us would be a source of peace and hope, as the dominant feelings on the streets are anger and fear.

Thank you so much for your friendship and love.

We've also been counselled to prepare for "something to come." Do we know the magnitude of what is about to break here?

We have heard them here, too.

Theirs came to pass.

 Re: From a Church in Egypt

Glory to God, finally a church that understands what church is about!

When the events started in Egypt I felt urged to pray for the people. May the Lord turn the Egyptian to be favorable towards Israel. They have been the hosts of God's people in ancient time and I believe they will play a significant role in the events preceding the Lord's return.

Isaiah 19:24-25
24 In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria—a blessing in the midst of the land, 25 whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, “Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.”

What a witness to us here.

Pray we are and will continue, until He Comes, dear Saints in Egypt, and around this globe. Amen, and Amen!
