Apocalypse Egypt and the Thundering Herd

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 GERDstraight 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 dictatoraka, 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.

Apocalypse Egypt

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?


Yes. Really.

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.

 – Isaiah 19:5-7

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 GERDthe 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.


…MOSTLY 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.

Egypt Worried Their Water Source Will Reduce Once Ethiopian Dam Is Built

YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/trEC2vI1Nps

And, here’s a video from April:

Ethiopia’s $4.8 billion dam nears completion

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.

It is NOT a coincidence that the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam was started when the Arab Spring visited Egypt. Hosni Mubarak was a guy that you did not mess with, and I said this last year:

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.

 – Isaiah 19:4

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.

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

 – You Don’t Mess Around with Jim (song)

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:

What Is The Fair Value Of Gold? | Zero Hedge

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:

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:

Survey says: 35 percent of Americans would expatriate

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’.

25 thoughts on “Apocalypse Egypt and the Thundering Herd”

  1. The thing about Syria is there were Christians living there in peace under Assad, and they weren’t persecuted until our dear leaders set jihadi-mercenaries (Isis) loose! Now Christians are severely persecuted and it’s by the guys McCain and Obama have armed, trained and supported! Just because we think we understand a prophetic passage should not blind us or make us biased from observing our current events accurately. It is more likely the destruction of Syria comes after its fully in jihadi control. The globalists know these scriptures too and it’s not so hard to manipulate us with them. We don’t need to make scriptures come true, they will do that on their own, God doesn’t need help, He told us what would happen not as a fortune teller guessing or hopeing it would come true, but a position of knowing it will occur, which includes all attempts to keep it from occurring. So, we need to focus on righteousness and being salt; in particular keeping our politicians from arming the terrorists who are persecuting Christians with the globalists’ blessing….

    • Hi Joe,

      I wish that it were that simple.

      God gave us these prophecies to warn us and give us time to prepare. Please remember this commandment from Jesus, Himself:

      Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

      – Luke 21:36

      That was not a suggestion, but a commandment. And, He was directly referring to the fulfillment of prophecy.

      We must watch, pray and prepare. And, we cannot do that with our eyes closed.

      Thank you, Joe.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  2. In 2011 I read an interesting scenario related to the Nile, but this one focused on the Egypt’s Aswan Dam. It was titled; Egypt’s Achillies Heel. The message from the Israeli writer was that 1 nuke fired at this dam would wipe out Egypt.
    Ezekiel 29:10
    Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia.
    The majority of the population live near the Nile and this is Israel’s Sampson Option just in case.
    Here’s a satellite picture of Egypt at night that I posted at my old blog.

    This is my 3rd summer here in Florida not using an Air Conditioner.The electric bills are very low and I’ve adapted. I think half the people in the state would die when the grid goes down, just from the heat.
    Shalom my brother.

  3. Shalom,
    You might want to rethink about Isa. 18. It is a very important prophecy. I used to think it described America but I now believe it is referring to the time of the re-establishment of the temple in Jerusalem (nothing man-made but made by YHWH Himself). We see a type of proof in Acts. 8:26-39. The eunuch was in charge of the treasury of Queen Candace and had come to Jerusalem to worship. That means the man was a practicing Jew who had come for one of the Father’s feast days (I’m guessing Shavuot but maybe Passover). It is said that he also was there because he had heard it said that the Messiah had come and was sent there by Queen Candace to see if it was true. When the Eunuch arrived he found the Messiah had already been put to death and was returning to tell the queen the news. It was said that had he found the Messiah alive and reigning in Jerusalem then he would return to Ethiopia and tell the queen and the queen would authorize the Ark of the Covenant to be transported back to Jerusalem. Look at verse 7. What was the present that would be brought to YHWH to Mount Zion?

    Thought you might like to know.

    • Shalom u’Vrecha Country Codger,

      I’m afraid that your explanation of Isaiah 18 does not fit with my understanding. God will build a kind of temple in the Millennium, but that will be AFTER He returns. Not before. Furthermore, it does not appear from the syntax of chapter 18, that this is during the Millennium.

      Please remember that the Law was a pointer to Jesus. There is therefore no longer a need for the sacrifice of bulls and goats.

      Thank you, CC.

      Alecha b’Yeshuah M’shiach,

  4. good research. but I think the USA is still a safe place to live in. Strong law enforcement in the USA is still effective in curtailing violence.

    • Hi james,

      The question is whether this ‘law enforcement’ will remain in the days ahead, and whether it will be used for our benefit.

      I am not so sanguine, and I have found that law enforcement is far more just in the places that I’ve chosen to live – like Israel and Taiwan.

      Thank you, James.

  6. Dear John,
    Thank you again for your works. I want to tell a little story, My Wife and I thought that we would buy some silver coins as a hedge too. The first time we tried we had the extra money and we working at things well even having all our bills paid up. But suddenly we had a slowdown in work and it did not go well financially. I did feel that God was telling me to put my money elsewhere. I of course ignored him and a couple months later tried again. With the same results. Later I tried once we were caught up again and within a week I had a serious truck accident. No one was hurt, Thank you Jesus. I was not fined, but we were down for 2 weeks without any income at all. Yes that is not as bad as unemployed but 2 weeks on the road with only money going out and the home bills still coming in hurts. We shelved the idea of precious metals and decided that we would spend money elsewhere. We bought into my parents farm with animals and were blessed with buying before the prices jumped up and later we sold them at the much higher prices and that money went well to supporting the farm. We have put a lot of money into the farm since and it has all worked out very well for us and our family. The farm is not a real source of income for us but provides healthy food surplus for 4 families. This is not bragging, it is just me saying that God’s plans for us do not always coincide with our plans. In this time, I have bought myself and my Wife new rifles, which are not cheap, and two good used vehicules without chastisement. I still struggle with some things. I would love to hold a one ounce gold coin as my own but given the choice of buying that coin or buying bailer twine, layer ration, haybine parts, tools, rebuilding the starter for the tractor, what ever, I have given over to the practical. I believe that God has given each and every person on this planet a plan and a way for them to implement it. Not all of us are Ministers, not all of us are protectors, not all of us are farmers, not all of us are tradesmen, but everyone of us has a purpose. To that we also have a place.
    I had to stop listening to myself to find a way that worked.
    I pray that God continues to guide me and that Jesus finds me acceptable.
    Thank you.

  7. What a difference a day makes. The ruling “princes” of the world are assembling themselves to grab what they may.
    In reading your article I noticed that the name Nile, if you were to switch the N and L you would have Line.
    Blue Line?
    White Line?
    For Egypt the Line has been removed?
    The Lord can and will protect His people. That does not mean that they will not be spared from hardship. Actually His Word promises adversity to those faithful to Christ.
    The enemy will use the perceived “needs” that people have to rule over them.

  8. Dear John,

    Thanks for your articles. Regarding relocation, it is good to find safety, but it’s also good to see persecution from God’s point of view – it’s for refining and also to get people mobilized (see Acts 7:59-8:4).

    In light of Mt. 24:14 (the Gospel being preached to all people groups) and 2 Peter 3:12 (our role in hastening the Lord’s coming), I suggest that serious followers of Jesus study this before choosing a place to relocate:


    The good news for us is that the beast system will probably hit these places last (if at all).

    Blessings in Jesus,

  9. Brother John,

    Not to digress, but my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, and the Citizens of that area that is about to be hit by the typhoon.. Stay safe.. God Bless.

    • Hi Joel,

      The biggest danger that we have are landslides. But, the ground has been dry for a bit, so we should do fine – Lord willing. I’m just glad that the Philippines didn’t get hit. They are the most vulnerable. Lots of damage last year. Lots.

      God bless you, Joel, for your kind heart.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Great to hear, brother.. I’m also glad my native country of the Philippines did not get hit either. I still have relatives there.. God Bless..
