In 1948 the Lord re-established the nation of Israel. The fact that President Truman was the first head of state to recognize the state of Israel was the main reason, I believe, President Truman was re-elected in 1948. Arguably, Israel is the most important nation on the planet because Israel gave us the Law, the Prophets, the New Testament and the Messiah: the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the first decade of the 21st Century, the Lord raised up President George W. Bush to take out Saddam Hussein (a Satanic stronghold) in Iraq. The Lord has done--and will continue to do--a powerful work in Iraq. Iraq is the cornerstone of the Middle East.
The Iraq War was NOT about oil, but about freedom: freedom from Islamo-Fascist Slavery. In God's economy, oil is secondary, freedom comes first. "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." But in the world's economy, oil IS important. As long as we continue to drill for oil and gas and mine coal, we are showing the Lord that we are subduing the earth ( Hebrew kabbash [subdue]--Genesis 1: 28). We could call this The Oil-Gas-Coal Kabbash. But this is a different issue and I don't want to get on some other tangent here.
Now we come to Egypt. The Lord began the Arab Spring to get rid of Hosni Mubarak and prepare the way for democratic elections and government in Egypt. Egypt--like Iraq--at one time was one of the cradles of civilization after the Lord destroyed/judged the earth in Noah's generation. Egypt is a great cornerstone in North Africa and maybe to the rest of Africa. As Egypt goes, so goes Africa(?).
We are now in the second decade of the 21st Century. If the first decade of the 21st Century was the decade of Iraqi beginnings, then the second decade of the 21st Century will be the decade of Egyptian beginnings.
Someone may ask, Isn't Israel the cornerstone of the Middle East? No. Israel is the cornerstone for the Lord's plan for the whole world. Israel is not a regional player, but a world player. Israel is an integral partner in the Israeli-British-American Military-Industrial Complex that the Lord is using to vanquish Islamo-Fascist Slavery in the world. Spiritual Judaeo-Christianity is growing stronger; Islamo-Fascist Slavery will ultimately wither on the vine.
If faith, I believe that, in the future, Israel, Iraq and Egypt will be a powerful trinity or alliance against radical Islam in the Middle East and North Africa. The Alpha and the Omega is embedded in Israel-Iraq-Egypt Bereshith (the Hebrew word bereshith means "in the beginning" or "beginnings").
"With the jawbone of an ass I have slain a thousand men."
