CSDP, Egypt, and Bible Prophecy?

I had no intention of blogging today. But I prayed to God again for wisdom. Silly me. I should've known that praying about this certain person often yields results for whoever prays. I am not at all saying "God spoke to me" or something like that. But I received some information that seem to correspond with answers to prayer, as many of you have experienced as well.

I was kinda clenching my hands together, almost begging God for wisdom about you-know-who....

The Willful King, Egypt and the Nile

I was looking at their Twitter page, and I saw this a few minutes later.

Serious problem. “:Egypt is being challenged by countries upstream for a greater say on the Nile

Ok interesting. Why is he posting a nearly four year old article? Let's turn to the Bible:

He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. 43 He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Cushites[e] in submission. Daniel 11:42a-43 NIV
My Bible footnotes "Cushites" with "That is, people from the upper Nile region." Hold that thought.

So we know that the end times figure described in this passage ultimately becomes ruler of Egypt and some nations in North Africa in general. Interesting, but where is this going?

I will hand the Egyptians over to the power of a cruel master,and a fierce king will rule over them,” declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty.5 The waters of the river will dry up, and the riverbed will be parched and dry.6 The canals will stink; the streams of Egypt will dwindle and dry up.
The reeds and rushes will wither,7 also the plants along the Nile, at the mouth of the river.Every sown field along the Nile will become parched, will blow away and be no more.8 The fishermen will groan and lament, all who cast hooks into the Nile;those who throw nets on the water will pine away. Isaiah 9:4-8 NIV
Here it seems we see that situation described in Daniel from yet another angle. It says Egypt falls under the hands of a cruel master, and it mentions that the Nile is drying up.

Have a look at that article again. Egypt is in a water dispute with other nations in North Africa. One of these other nations were even working on a dam to take a portion of the water.

Hmmmm.....I can see it now. A CSDP mission to keep Egypt from hogging all the water..... A CSDP mission to stabilize the water crisis involving the "people from the upper Nile region." Perhaps a CSDP mission in context of the new ENP, which has CSDP instruments built right into it. Oh wait a second....that sounds a lot like Daniel 11 and Isaiah 19. Oh and look who cares so much....posting an article that is almost 4 years old, calling it a "serious problem!"

Led by who you ask?????

You know the answer.

As far as his statements that its a serious problem, I had at least the impression that the situation with the Nile had toned down for the time being...but perhaps I was wrong.

Global Governance

As if this wasn't fascinating enough, I prayed some more. He posted an article about how PCUSA changed the definition of marriage to include any two people. And a few minutes later, and this person said this in reply to someone else on a different topic:

@joaquinpila Debería hacerlo. Es, a mi juicio,la mejor manera de construir confianza en Gobernanza global.
English: @joaquinpila It should do so. It is, in my opinion, the best way to build confidence in global governance.

All within, like, 17 minutes of each other and praying for wisdom.

Perhaps I've gone off the deep end. But hey. I'd rather err on the side of caution.
