Egypt, the Caliphate and the Global Puzzle

Posted: February 9, 2011 in Uncategorized

A great intercessor and dear friend is apostle Carolyn Sissom of Katy, TX.  She forwarded this piece to me today.  As I read it, I began to see “red” so to speak, I became so stirred up.

Frankly, I’m tired of the Islamic thing.  And now I am finding out that there is a greater threat to America – the Caliphate.  This article summarizes some of the essence behind all the global mayhem we have been seeing.

Join with me and let’s see what God will do with all this threat.  I believe He will show us and I believe He will act in our behalf.  You?

Caliphate….learn about this….you’ll be hearing about it more and more….. ( this link also has a whole history of the Caliphate)

The term caliphate (from the Arabic خلافة or khilāfa, Turkish: Halife ) refers to the first system of government established in Islam, and represented the political unity of the Muslim Ummah (nation). In theory, it is a constitutional republic[1] (see Constitution of Medina), meaning that the head of state (the Caliph) and other officials are dicate to the people according to Islamic law, which exercises power over their citizens. It was initially led by Muhammad‘s disciples as a continuation of the political system the prophet established, known as the ‘rashidun caliphates’. It represented the political unity, not the theological unity of Muslims as theology was a personal matter.

A “caliphate” is also a state which implements such a governmental system.

Dear Intercessors,

I send this to help educate us in this ‘season’ we find ourselves.  Knowledge is key for us to pray accurately and with insight.  The process of creating larger moslem states or possibly having elected representation in places like the US or France is not a surprise, it is already happening……….but that it has a name and is referred to in common news now was a surprise.

I am not a regular viewer of many programs on tv, since I just don’t have the time to tune in.  But, I just happened to tune in to Glenn Beck earlier this week and he mentioned this term, Caliphate.  I’d never heard it before and he gave a brief description because he is putting forth the idea that the current crisis in Egypt is a piece of a very large global puzzle to create, at the least, a new regional Islamic government of global proportions.  This would come about mostly through the organized efforts of the Muslim Brotherhood, and could possibly stretch in to Europe and into this hemisphere if not stopped by some means.(The Muslim Brotherhood created Al Queda and Hamas.  They are the extreme of the moslem extremists, are the best financed and are the most organized of moslem groups, and are dispersed among the nations, including ours.)

Now to my surprise I am viewing an interview tonight of Donald Rumsfield, former Secretary of Defense under President GW Bush, and HE MENTIONS CALIPHATE in his interview.  He explains the same principle of the moslems creating a literal conglomerate nation through the overthrow of existing nations, covering all the Middle East, Europe and “beyond” , called a CALIPHATE.  Now Rumsfield is a man who has been out of the national scene for years, and yet he talks about the caliphate as if it has been known of for years by most Americans.  So, I am thinking, this may be new news to Glenn Beck, me and perhaps you…..but to those who first took the challenge of defending our nation after 9-11, this is a known fact and one that propelled our nation to eradicate Al Queda and other extreme moslem sects.

To add to the understanding, know that the creation of the Caliphate in our generation is almost the phoenix rising from the ashes.  If you look at the history, you see how it worked through the hundreds of years…and the rebirth now is much like a resurrection.  So, consider for your prayers asking God to cut off the spirit wanting to resurrect this, to almost stop the redigging of the Caliphate wells, amen?

And as one digs in to Google, listens to these interviews and news from outside the left media types, this Caliphate “nation” would be similar to an Iran under the rule of an Ayatollah, a religious moslem that runs a nation through the Sharia law.  And would REALLY export the “jihad” against Israel and anyone or place that is not exactly as the moslem extremist are since they would have access to whole national militaries, untold national resources and funds to grow and expand it’s reach.

So, as we read and digest all the news on Egypt, put this one under your hat and stay tuned.

The possible impact of this Caliphate, where nations fall like dominoes into the moslem abyss, is truly sobering.  And it all starts with protests that fuel chaos that sets the stage for the unrest and ultimate overthrow of existing government.

Our prayers for Egypt are for a greater cause than I think we realize.  There is a larger movement afoot, there is much more at stake.   If Egypt does not stay independent of the Muslim Brotherhood or something like it, the experts are saying it will be like kindling in a fire…it will fuel other protests and overthrows in more nations.

I pray this helps illuminate more of the schemes of the enemy.  If you have any other related insights, send em my way…this is a dialog between us all, amen?

    I had never seen the word spelled “moslem” before, when I looked it up, I found this:

    I thought that was interesting. I don’t know if it was deliberate on her part, but it may be more indicative of the prophetic nature of what’s she’s saying that her age…
    just a thot…


    • Judy Smith says:

      I thought your picking up on this semantic problem was very astute. As it appears in Ras’s info; it would appear that the Islamic move (globally) is more political than spiritual; therefore, I would say that “Moslem” would be the more accurate spelling.

    As I read this, I thought of the 12 tribes of Israel when they entered the Promised Land. God told them to destroy ALL their enemies; however, as we read in Judges, some tribes were more successful than others. Under Joshua, they all began strong, but later were sidetracked by “fear, weariness, lack of discipline, or self-interest.” As a result, their faith began to fade away and everyone “did as they saw fit”. Spiritual decay set in as they forsook relationship with God.

    I feel that many within the nations of the world feel much the way Israel did way back then; and unfortunately, it would appear that history is repeating itself . God had said the evil Canaanites would be like a thorn to Israel and as they were then, so they are today…only the world has become a bigger place and we are similarly affected.

    As I was praying tonite the passage in 2 Chronicles 7: 14 came to mind “again”. We need to HEAR this passage and we need to DO IT and then we need to stand (still) in God’s presence united against this principality!

    Ras’ and Carolyn’s good writings helps us to focus our thoughts on pinpoint prayer in the midst of rapidly changing events. We must educate ourselves quickly about the Arab/Muslim world in order to understand how we can best pray for a peaceful outcome in the Middle East. The quote below asks some good questions and has guided me further, and hopefully all of the intercessors, in pinpoint prayers for the Middle East:

    “Could the Holy Spirit be using the current chaos in the Arab world to draw even more Muslims to Jesus? Does he intend to use this essay to enlist you in this spiritual battle for the souls of millions? Will you join me in praying daily for a spiritual awakening in the Arab world as a result of these events?

    In these chaotic and historic times, your Father does not want you to be afraid: “God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control” (2 Timothy 1:7, ESV). Instead, he wants you to “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). Where do you need to begin this morning?”

    Hi Bev;
    I agree and their are millions of souls that are in the balance. It is not God’s will that any be lost…let us all come together in ONE SPIRIT for God’s divine intervention in this; especially as the choice of leaders is being made.

    I would also like to pray that God will grant great wisdom to the people who are so anxious to remove present gov’t…that they will see any hidden agendas.

    hi ras,

    i get your daily prophetic email which i am blessed by and found yesterday’s word and this blogpost quite interesting. my concern was, and is, where christians get a word from God about a situation and then make all sorts of assumptions about what that word means. the sense i get from this post, especially where it says:

    “And it all starts with protests that fuel chaos that sets the stage for the unrest and ultimate overthrow of existing government,”

    is that you and carolyn were implying that the overthrow of mubarak would be a bad thing and against God’s will. i think the thing to keep in mind is that the word you got from the Lord did not say that, but it only alerted you to the dangers of a caliphate rising up. from everything i’ve read recently mubarak certainly was not providing for the egyptian people as God would have wanted him to. the poverty and oppression there is ridiculous and seeing how 300 people were killed in the non-violent protests is horrible. i totally understand the concerns for israel though. it’s certainly a complex situation.

    my point here is that christians need to be extremely careful when it comes to making assumptions about what the prophetic words they receive from the Lord really mean and not taking them and running with them according to a particular political script. too many times christians have supported the wrong side in history. all we have to do is look at the staggering failure of the church during WWII.

    i found it very interesting to wake up today to the news that mubarak has resigned. while yes your word about the caliphate is a timely caution and alert to prayer i in no way see mubarak’s ouster as being against God’s will.
