As we move further and further into the Last Days, we need to be looking for signs that prophecy is being fulfilled. Last week, I talked about The Murder of Syria. This week, I want to point to the collapse of Egypt and The GERD – straight out of Isaiah 19.
It has been more than a year since I talked about the Grand Renaissance Ethiopian Dam, and I am amazed that the project still continues. And, Egypt is more and more worried about it.
Then, there’s gold. While the thundering herd has been chasing illusions, gold has been driven down by the banksters. This may be your last chance to get something real, before the herd comes thundering back.

Apocalypse Egypt and the Thundering Herd
Last week, I talked about the Murder of Syria. The Bible prophesied Syria’s fall in Isaiah 17, so it should not surprise us that it is happening. Furthermore, the father of the current dictator – aka, president – of Syria was a murderous, repressive piece of scum. So, it shouldn’t surprise us that there is a revolt against the government of Syria.
I just hate the thought that so many civilians will suffer and die.
So, there is an element of logic to the fulfillment of Isaiah 17. In fact, for more than 2500 years, everyone who read Isaiah 17, nodded and thought that this was a perfectly understandable prophesy.
However, when reader get to Isaiah 18, they will frown a bit.
Who are these people who are scattered and peeled/pulled/polished/plucked?
But, this probably means that nations in sub-Saharan Africa will come and help Israel. So, the reader of Isaiah will sigh and move on to chapter 19.
As they move down the chapter, they’ll see fear… civil war… more fear… tyrannical government… All of it awful, but understandable.
And then, the reader comes to verse five. The frown is back. Then verse six. The frown deepens. By verse seven, the eyebrows are raised, and the rest of the chapter goes by in a blur.
The Nile dries up?
Here are the verses:
And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up. And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.
The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more.
For twenty five hundred years, readers have puzzled over those verses.
How is it possible that the Nile would dry up?
For a very long time, people would have needed to take all that on faith. Now, they don’t – because we see the process for the fulfillment of Isaiah 19, having already started.
Notice the first part of verse six, that I highlighted, above:
And they shall turn the rivers far away
That’s talking about dams – the damming of the rivers that come together to form the Nile. And, it was only in the last couple hundred years – or so – that this was even remotely possible.
However, Egypt was always quick to threaten anyone who tried to do anything to the water feeding the Nile. No irrigation. No ‘stealing’ drinking water. No hydroelectric dams. Nothing.
If you took any water from the Nile, Egypt would attack you. And, Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda believed that threat. Now that Egypt has been weakened, they don’t feel threatened, anymore.
And now, they are building dams. Lots of dams.
Last year, I talked about the GERD – the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. That dam is being built on the Blue Nile, which accounts for 59% of the water of The Nile. Sometime between now and 2017, that dam will begin filling up. And, if they fill it up too fast, the Blue Nile will run dry for more than a year.
But, what about the other 41%?
Well, I’ve recently discovered that a bunch of dams have been built on the White Nile. In fact, a bunch of dams are going up on all the tributaries of the Nile River. Some began filling up this year, and aren’t that big.
And yes, it is true that when all these dams have been filled up, the flow of the Nile will go back to normal.
You see, Africans want to use this water for drinking and farming – not just electricity. So, Egypt is going to see a permanent reduction of flow. But, the biggest problem will arise when the GERD begins to fill. And, that should begin sometime during the next two years.
Egypt Is Worried
And, Egypt is worried.

And, here’s a video from April:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/4mDIMwed1rw
I hope that you got the gist of the above video. They are working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to get that dam completed. And they specifically designed the dam to be built as quickly as possible.
Because they need to get the dam up – and running – before Egypt gets strong enough to stop them.
Oh, and remember what I said about filling that dam too quickly?
Right. The Nile dries up.
Back in 2009, Ethiopia surveyed the area where they are now building the GERD – in the hopes of eventually building this dam. Hosni Mubarak caught wind of this survey and built an airbase in southeastern Sudan in 2010 – in preparation for attacking this project. Ethiopia was obviously intimidated and halted progress until they saw Hosni thrown out of power.
Well, the Arab Spring got rid of Hosni, and there went the neighborhood. The Ethiopians saw their chance, and took it. And, this desire to move quickly, before Egypt can do anything about it… well …it just might cause them to fill that dam too quickly, way too quickly – drying up the Nile.
Egypt Won’t Be Able To Blow Up The GERD
You see, Egypt won’t be able to blow up that dam, once it has been filled.
Because a wave of water would wash away everything in its path. And the backlash against Egypt would be enormous. So, you can understand the feverish pace that Ethiopia is setting.
Oh, and my wife showed me yesterday, that Egypt will take delivery of eight F-16 aircraft in two days.
Will they come with dam-busting bombs?
We’ll see, but I certainly hope not.
A Cruel And Fierce Ruler
The point of the matter, is that Egypt has serious trouble in her future. Oppression, tyranny, civil-war and wholesale death are coming. And, some of it is already there.
The current ruler is Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
Is he the cruel lord and fierce king of Isaiah 19:4?
Here is the passage:
And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts.
Unfortunately, Egypt is currently suffering from an inability to grow enough nutritional food and provide enough fuel to cook it. No matter how ‘nice’ el-Sisi would like to be, he will need to be cruel and fierce – when hungry mobs start tearing down his government. And, if he isn’t cruel enough – or fierce enough – someone will replace him, who certainly will be cruel enough and fierce enough.
Egypt Already Suffering
And, Egypt is ALREADY suffering from water shortage:
Water shortages bring suffering to Egypt’s countryside
Egypt faces increasing water deficit
This is apocalypse for Egypt, and it will be apocalypse for the Middle East and – I suspect – for the rest of the world.
Please pay attention. Prophecy is unfolding before our very eyes. Get this wrong, and you may suffer dearly.
Some More Research On Apocalypse Egypt
Here are some articles and research that can help you get started, as you look into all this for yourself:
Start pulling on those threads, and the whole sweater will unravel.
The Thundering Herd
You don’t tug on superman’s cape
You don’t spit into the wind
You don’t pull the mask off that old lone ranger
And you don’t mess around with Jim
I would like to add to the above that…
You don’t follow the ‘Thundering Herd’ and you don’t stand in their way
…unless, you like getting your shoes dirty, or being trampled.
Trying to understand the dynamics of investment, is like trying to understand the psychology of ‘thundering herds’. You will never truly understand why they move this way, or that. But, move they do – and logic plays very little part in those movements.
Stocks go up, because lots of people decided that owning stocks was a good idea. They go down, because they then decided that stock ownership was no longer a good idea. The same goes for any other type of ‘asset’.
Yes, there are all kinds of factors involved in the price of something going up or down. I spent a number of years in the investment business researching those. But, it really all comes down to one thing:
The Thundering Herd
Again, that’s why I have said that the study of mass psychology will always be the best educational prerequisite for future investors. Good luck with that, should you try.
Gold And Silver Got Trampled
I say all that in defense of my favorite group of assets – precious metals. The Thundering Herd has trampled them flat and left them in the manure pile they left behind, as they chased after a delusion waved at them by The Powers That Be. And, those TPTBs have taken advantage of this change in fortune by naked-shorting tons and tonnes of Gold and Silver.
The manipulation of gold and silver has been incredible. And, it has been a wonderful opportunity for those who wanted a good deal on all that glitters. I hate paying full-price for ANYTHING, so I look at the current prices of gold and silver as a wonderful opportunity to buy more.
(However, I don’t have the money to do that, so I’m stuck.)
For those of us – like yours truly – who took their savings and bought mostly silver and some gold… well …we’ve been feeling a bit like we bought a teeny tiny bit too early. We missed the sale and are suffering a bit of buyer’s remorse. Completely and utterly understandable.
Believe me. I’m feeling your pain.
Good Signs For Gold And Silver!
The good thing is that some of that pain may be about to go away:
Remember that the efforts to manipulate gold will reach a fever pitch as their ABILITY of the banksters to do so dies. So, as I see the mainstream media talk trash about precious metals, I see that as a sign of desperation. The same goes for the rise in the amount of money being used to suppress the price of gold.
So hang on to what you have, and buy more – if you can. The thundering herd will be back. I think that I can hear the rumble of their return, already.
God And A Good Location, First
Having said that, my list of favorite assets starts with God. Don’t add an ‘L’, until you truly are His child. Without God, there is no hope. And, if your location isn’t very safe, then I wouldn’t hold out much hope for you, either.
Please. Get God, and then get a good location.
Once you have God and a safe place, go for food. I don’t care how much gold or silver that you might have, if you don’t have food and a dependable source of water. You can’t eat or drink gold.
Only buy gold and silver if you have done all other preparations first. And, I’m only saying gold and silver because it’s the only source of portable value that I know. If you can think of something better, go with that.
note – I am no longer an investment professional. I’m only telling you what I’m doing for myself and my family and friends. Your situation is undoubtedly different than mine and requires a different approach.
Don’t Forget Friends And Family
Oh, and please make sure that family and friends are taken care of, as best you can. One day, we will all stand before the Lord and give an account for what we did – and what we didn’t – do.
What do you think God will say to you, if you choose to not be ready to help those who will undoubtedly be in terrible need?
Relocation – John Price And Steve Quayle
So, let’s talk a bit about relocation. In fact, John Price and Steve Quayle did that two months ago:
That was an excellent interview that should give a lot of you some extra oomph to make the decision that you know that you need to make.
Stay Away From Paranoid Countries
This next one caused a bit of a ruckus in our household, when my wife seemed to say ‘paranormal’ instead of ‘paranoia’. However, you really don’t want either happening in the area that you want to live:
More Research On Relocation
And, here are a bunch of other articles on the subject of relocation:
I cannot say this strongly enough. America will quickly become a far less safe place than it is now, when everything begins to fall apart. And, ‘fall apart’ it will.
Will you let the ensuing death and destruction take you and those that you love?
But, before you decide, seek the direction of the Lord. Some of you have done that, and you’ve been led by God to stay where you are – or at least within the US. This puts an added emphasis upon preparation.
Preparation, Preparation and MORE Preparation
Of course, those of us who HAVE expatriated, will also need to prepare. But, I believe that the need will be much stronger for those who ‘stick it out in the US’.
I hope all that helps. I am NOT an expert, but the above articles make sense. I have a writeup on preparation and relocation, here:
Ezekiel’s Fire – Chapter Four – Preparation
As always, there is more to say, and not enough time or space to say it. May God bless you all.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
