Question # 131 (01-02-03) Which countries will be involved in Armageddon? Is what is going on over there right now leading us to Armageddon? I am watching the news about Iraq and wondering that if we go to war in Iraq it could be the beginning of the end.
Answer……… Armageddon is the apocalyptic term for the final supernatural conflict between Satan and God. The term Armageddon appears only once in scripture. It is recorded in Revelation 16:16 and reads: And he (God) gathered them (nations) together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. The place called Armageddon takes its name from the Mountain overlooking the Valley of Esdraelon, (Jezreel) or Megiddo. (Har Megiddo)
Armageddon [ar mah GED un] (mountain of Megiddo) is the site of the final battle of this age in which God intervenes to destroy the armies of Satan and to cast Satan into the bottomless pit.
According to the Book of The Revelation, (16:19) at Armageddon "the cup of the wine of the fierceness of God's wrath" will be poured out, and the forces of evil will be overthrown and destroyed. God has decreed that he will gather “all nations” into the strategic-valley-staging areas of Megiddo and Jehoshaphat, encircling the city of Jerusalem. (Joel 3:2, Haggai 2:7, Zechariah 14:2) for the battle of the ages. Joel referred to this final conflict as taking place in the “Valley of Decision”, a reference to the broad scope of nations that will fight against the Lord. (Joel 3:14) Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
Zechariah 12:11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
In my opinion, Iraq will not be a prominent player at Armageddon. However, geo-political events presently centering upon Iraq could very likely trigger the major powers of this world moving toward the events at that will occur at Armageddon. We know that the “Kings of the East” (China/ North Korea, etc) and the great Russian Alliance of Ezekiel 38-39 (Persia, Libya, Muslim Republics) will contend with the Antichrist (World Power of the Last Days/UN-EU) for supremacy in the Middle East ultimately taking the world into Armageddon. Unquestionably, the Arab/Muslim Empire will compel upon Russia to take a militaristic course against Israel, which will likely involve Syria at some point prior to Armageddon. (destruction of Damascus/Isaiah 17) The Antichrist will seemingly resolve the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and arrange a solution to the Temple Mount Dilemma, and thereby gain a stronghold of power in the Middle East. But Russia and China will oppose his domination in the region! Daniel 11:44-45 But tidings out of the east (Kings of the East/China/Rev. 16:12) and out of the north (Russia/Gog/Ezekiel 38/39) shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, (Antichrist) and none shall help him.
Unquestionably we are moving with all quick-speed toward the epic day of Jacobs Trouble, or the Tribulation era, which will conclude with the battle of Armageddon where the Lord Jesus Christ shall consume all the enemies of Israel. Furthermore, Israel shall finally become a blessing to all nations when Jesus reigns upon his throne in the city of Jerusalem! It should be noted that the Battle of Armageddon comes at the end of Jacobs Trouble, therefore it always remains at least seven years out in the future, as long as Christ's Bride is present on this earth.
Question # 132 (01-10-03) What is Africa's role in prophecy? They have a large Muslim and
Christian population, but they seem to take a back seat to the Middle East when it comes to prophecy. Are they a cursed nation?
Answer……… Of course, Africa is a continent of nations, but generally speaking Africa is the ancestral land of the descendants of Ham, Mizraim, Phut, Lubim, Ethiops, and Cush. Africa doesn't seem to play a leading role in end-time Bible Prophecy, but it does have some significant participants. Libya and Ethiopia are each portrayed as important allies of Gog/Magog in the great Russian-Persian-Islamic Republics alliance against Israel in the Last Days. Also, Daniel 11 portrays a panoramic perspective of the Last Days empire of the Antichrist conquering Egypt, and perhaps much of Africa as he secures for himself the treasures/resources of the African continent. I know of no curse upon Africa. Africa is sometimes depicted as a being a people cursed because of the Noahic curse pronounced upon Canaan, but this curse was solely upon the man “Canaan”, and not Africa. (Genesis 9:25-26 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.) But many nations/tribes/people live under a curse simply because they do not receive/accept or have the sustained blessing of the light of God's word and truth. Therefore they live in abject spiritual darkness under the banner of the worlds many false religions.
I believe Africa, like so many large parts of the world is uniquely depicted in the prophecies of Daniel. In these brief visions about the Last Days world kingdom of the Antichrist, we are informed that the kingdom of the Antichrist (Global Power via 10 Kings) will subdue the whole earth, insofar as treading upon the spirit of human liberty-freedom, and breaking down/pillaging all systems (economic/religious/governmental) that do not conform to the concept of world unification under the auspices of the Antichrist. (See also Daniel 7:7,19) Daniel 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
The Middle East will always be the focal point of Bible Prophecy because of the location of Israel. All Bible Prophecy pertains to the past, present and the future of Israel, and the legitimacy of God's covenant to his chosen nation, and also the manner in which the nations of the world interact with Israel. To this land Jesus came 2000 years ago, and to there he shall return very soon!
Question # 133 (01-12-03) What is the prophetic scenario regarding the situation on the Korean Peninsula? Does Korea have a part to play in prophecy, and if so how does it figure into the conflict in the Middle East. Also, why is it that America is set to go to war with Iraq over weapons of mass destruction when North Korea seems to be a much more serious danger with these very same weapons?
Answer……… The Korean Peninsula has a 56 year long track record of being a hot-spot for international contention. The U.S. and Red China came face-to-face in Korea in the 1950-1953 Korean Conflict. That conflict is only part of the Far Eastern sphere of superpower contention. Taiwan also lies at the heart of the conflict between the East and the West. Bible Prophecy portends that the “Kings of the East” will oppose the Global superpower confederacy of the Antichrist in the Last Days. (Revelation 16:12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.) (Daniel 11:44 But tidings out of the east (China/Korea, etc) and out of the north (Russia) shall trouble him: (Antichrist) therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.) China is an emerging giant of a nation that is seeking to displace the West (US-EU-NATO) from its position of dominance in the world. For China to emerge from the shadows of Western power, it believes that it must incorporate Taiwan into its sovereign fold, thereby reducing the influence of the West in the Far East. Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines form a loop of Western preeminence in the Far Eat. North Korea basically serves as a test-case surrogate for the Communist kings of China and the Far East in their strivings against America (West) in the Pacific rim arena. According to Bible Prophecy, the Kings of the East will invade the Middle East at the later stage of the Great Tribulation era to confront the Antichrist, perhaps just after, or perhaps in conjunction with the great Russian invasion of Israel that leads towards Armageddon.
America is more focused on diffusing the Iraqi threat than the Korean threat for several reasons. Among those reasons are the following:
The Iraqi threat tends to be the most likely to destabilize the world economy and oil supply.
America is seeking to encircle the Axis of Evil nations (Iraq-Iran) in the Middle East in the hopes of cementing an Israeli-Palestinian Peace Accord, thereby fashioning a pro-Western
sphere of influence in the Middle East that will solidify its Arab alliances and the resources for oil, while serving at the same time to negate the Arab controversy with Israel. America has moved into Afghanistan, and perhaps soon will move against Iraq. These two nations surround Iran, and that “point of geography” is intended to send a strong message to the leadership of Iran, which is a chief sponsor of Fundamentalist Islamic international terrorism.
The North Korean situation is a little more distance-removed from being able to destabilize American foreign interests. Also, North Korea shares common borders with both Russia and China, whereas Iraq does not. America “falsely” believes that Russia and China can be counted on to reign in North Korea's nuclear threats.
Iraq and Saddam Hussein are more closely linked to international terrorism, and to the September 11th attacks on America.
The removal of Saddam Hussein and Iraq from the equation quiver of Middle East terrorism could further isolate Syria and its many functioning terrorist operatives.
The North Korean nuclear threat is merely political/military/diplomatic chess brinkmanship between the aspiring world superpowers testing the geo-political strategies of military Deterrence, Regional Containment, and the new Bush philosophy or Pre-emptive geo-political-military action against rogue states and sponsors of international terrorism.
In the final analysis, the Middle East, and Israel in particular will continue to be at the center of world events because the time for Jesus return is nigh, and he will cause the whole world to focus on Jerusalem.
Question # 134 (01-17-03) What are your thoughts regarding the destruction of the temple taking place in 60AD? As described in the writing of Josephus, The Jewish Wars? (Luke 21:20-24, And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.) This describes perfectly what Josephus discussed in his writings. He even mentions that the followers of Jesus, who fled to the hills, were safe & hidden. Maybe the "time of the Jews" refers to God's dealing with the Jewish people before Christ. And the "time of the Gentiles" being after Christ until somewhere near present day. God will then return to the Jews, along with all believers in Christ during the final days? Just a thought. Remember when Christ said that "this generation will not pass before the end of time comes?" Maybe what he meant by the end of time was the end of the "time of Jews," and the destruction of Jerusalem by the Gentiles. Any thoughts on this?
Answer……… It is my determination that the destruction of the Jewish Temple occurred in the 67-70AD Jewish revolt against Rome. The Antiquities of Josephus that document the era of the Roman destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple do indeed reflect much of the prophetic narrative of Jesus Olivet Discourse, such as you refer to in Luke chapter 21. The “times of the Gentiles” actually commenced with the first destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple when Nebuchadnezzar conquered Israel, (606-587BC) and will not end until Jesus returns to destroy the Last gentile power. (Antichrist) The era known as “times of the Gentiles” will not end until Jesus returns to Israel and establishes his kingdom. The unique opportunity, or “time for the Jews” was missed by Israel when they failed to recognize their Messiah. Jesus referred to Israel's momentous historic miscalculation earlier in Luke. (Luke 19:43-44: For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.) The Roman destruction of Jerusalem in 70AD is only part of the prophetic paradigm alluded to by Jesus in Luke 21, and so aptly recorded by Josephus. But the day of Jacobs Trouble still looms ahead on the horizon for Israel, and most of the terrible experiences prophesied by Jesus in Luke 21 will then occur, but afterward, after Jesus comes to Israel and affirms his Kingdom, then the Jews discover their true Messiah and thereby enjoy a new day!
(Luke 1:32-33 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.) (Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. (Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.)
Question # 135 (01-23-03) I understand that the creation of a Palestine State could be in 3 stages. The 1st stage calls for the withdrawal of Israeli forces from re-occupied Palestinian areas. The second stage calls for the conclusion of an agreement on the creation of a Palestinian State with provisional borders by August of 2003, or maybe sooner. And at last the 3rd and final stage or phase of negotiations after or round August of 2003 would involve a formal creation of a full Palestine State with limited arms by 2005. If this is the covenant of Daniel 9:27, in what phase do you think the covenant would be confirmed? Would it be confirmed in stage 2 with the provisional borders to begin the Tribulation, or do you think it would begin in the 3rd and final stage with the formal creation of a full Palestinian State in 2005 with limited arms? God Bless, Jesus Saves!
Answer………Great questions! I applaud you for your acute awareness of current events and their potential implications in Bible Prophecy. Your questions regarding the creation of a Palestinian State in the West Bank are certainly relevant to Last Days events in Bible Prophecy, but the mere creation of yet another Palestinian State doesn't necessarily portend for an absolute certainty that it will become the “actual covenant” that is confirmed by the Antichrist. The proposed phases and landmark dates proposed by the Peace Quartet (UN, EU, US, and Russia) may only prelude the epic Covenant of Daniel. The Covenant mentioned in Daniel 9:27 specifically conveys that the covenant will be a seven year agreement in which the Antichrist will confirm a security-with-peace arrangement (I Thessalonians 5:1-3) with all the many children of Abraham, including not only those of Jacob, (Israel) but probably also including those of Ishmael. (Palestine, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, etc) The multiple UN resolutions and other Middle East Peace Processes thus far have attempted to fabricate a network of peace alliances around Israel's immediate perimeter. Those diplomatic efforts of craftsmanship produced a paper of peace with Egypt to the south, (1979) and with Jordan (1993) to the east. But Syria-Lebanon and the Iranian backed Hezbollah terrorist organization on the north of Israel has vowed never to make any peace with Israel. The UN and the West hopes that the creation of a new Palestinian State in the West Bank will appease the Arab world and render null and void any further conflict between Israel and the Arabs. It is my view that the new Palestinian State created by the UN-West will only become yet another terrorist-sponsoring State. The US-EU/Peace Quartet wrongly believes that the establishment of democracy in the West Bank and also in Iraq will quell the influence of radical fundamentalist Islamic terrorist organizations, and checkmate the influence of Iran in the Middle East Peace formula. For the Palestinian Statehood proposals to qualify for evolving into the confirming of the Covenant by the Antichrist, the ingredient of religious unity needs to be involved. Eventually, after the issue of terrorism is dealt with in the Middle East, there will have to be a parallel resolution to the peace process regarding the religious aspect of the Temple Mount. The Palestinian Statehood issue could vault us closer to that historic prophetic scenario, but I don't think that the proposed three stage statehood program
is of and by itself that particular covenant.
Question # 136 (01-27-03) I would like to tell you the falsehoods about your site. I am a
Christian and as a Christian, I would know just how to tell whether God is false or not, and he's not. So, Let's put your Christian God in true perspective! You seem to suggest that:
(1) If Jesus did not die on a cross, the Christian God is a false God.
(2) If God did not raise Jesus from the dead after 3 days, the Christian God is a false God.
(3) If Jesus is not the only way to God, the Christian God is a false God.
(4) If Jesus is not coequal with God, the Christian God is a false God.
(5) If Jesus was deceived as to who He was, the Christian God is a false God.
(6) If Jesus was a liar, the Christian God is a false God.
I know you don't mean to offend, but when I read this, I am offended like there is no tomorrow. So, I hope you take this letter seriously, I am very offended. So the next time you need to be careful what you type or say. I may not be Muslim, but if I were, I would be even more offended.
Answer………Well, I am not at all sure what point you are trying to make. I certainly wouldn't wish to offend anyone. However, the God of the Christian Bible has plainly revealed himself in his Holy Word. First of all he cannot lie, (Titus 1:2) and he said that Jesus was his only begotten son, (John 3:16) and that he sent him into this world to die on a cross, (John 3:17) and that he was resurrected on the 3rd day. (Acts 10:40; I Cor. 15:4) So then, if God himself declared that Jesus was his only son, and that he was well pleased with him, (Matthew 3:17, Luke 3:22, II Peter 1:17) what else are we to make of Jesus own statements, such as: (John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.)
(Colossians 2:8-9 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.) I will simply take God at his word!
Question # 137 (01-29-03) Can you possibly see King Abdullah II of Jordan enhancing this Middle East peace agreement and a scenario where the 3 uprooted Kings spoken of in Daniel.
(Daniel 7:20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.) Might the three kings be Syria, Iran and Iraq, since these three countries are a threat to World Peace? This would seem to work well in the Antichrist scheme to guarantee Israel's safety.
Answer……… You suggest a very interesting scenario. I have for a long time contemplated about the prospective identities of the three uprooted kings in Daniel's prophecy relative to the empire of the Antichrist. As you know, there will be ten kings (ten toes-ten horn prophetic visions/Daniel/Revelation) in the Last Days that will provide the political-logistic support for the rise of the Antichrist. However, as yet I can't even speculate to any great certainty the identity of the ten kings, nor ascertain the identity of the three that will fall before the Antichrist. But, I will say that the scenario that you have suggested is certainly very possible and well worth keeping under close scrutiny. Daniel also intimates that the king of the South (Egypt) could well be among the three kings that are subdued by the Antichrist. (Daniel 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.)
(Daniel 7:23-24 Thus he said, The fourth beast (kingdom of the Antichrist) shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; (Antichrist) and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.)
I also think that King Abdullah as King of Jordan will indeed continue to work in accordance with the Middle East Peace Process initiative that someday will ultimately be secured by the Antichrist. (Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.)
A better analysis of the Middle East Conflict and the prospective players during the Tribulation era may become clearer as the war on terror and the isolation of the Axis of Evil nations plays itself out. As Christians, we need to keep watching these things because the time for the Lord's coming is certainly drawing more nigh than ever before.
Question # 138 (01-30-03) You said in question number130 in reference to Daniel 11:39, that it is what is called a prophetic paradigm, or a parallel event that is still yet in the future. Do you think that Revelations 13:18 could possibly be a prophetic paradigm also? Some interpreters believe that John intended to depict the persecution ordered by Roman emperor Domitian as a return to the days of Roman emperor Nero, who had persecuted Christians in Rome. It has been claimed that the numerical value of the name "Neron" in Latin gematria is 666, and that if "Nero Ceasar" is spelled a certain way in Hebrew it has a numerical value of 666 in the Hebrew gematria. In the interpretation the head whose "fatal wound was healed" is a symbolic reference to the return of the reign of Nero under the emperor Domitian. But even though the Roman empire is portrayed as the persecutor of the saints in Revelation 17, the facts that John was writing in Greek not Hebrew or Latin, and that the numerical value of Jesus is 888, still favor the idea that John had Greek gematria in mind. Now if the reign of Nero was a parallel event of Revelation 13:18 doesn't this necessarily mean he was the antichrist of the past? Was Nero the Antichrist? I've also have heard of the 4 beasts, was Nero considered to be one of the 4 beasts? Who were the 4 beasts considered to be? Lastly in those days did Nero force people to receive a mark on their foreheads or hands? God Bless, Jesus saves!
Answer……… Nero was in fact a “type” of antichrist, (as was Nimrod, Nebuchadnezzar, Antiochus, and many others) but he was not the actual end-times Antichrist of Revelation 13.
Neither was Caesar Nero one of the four beasts of Daniel's prophecy. The four beasts of history are reviewed in Daniel chapter 7. (Daniel 7:3-7 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.) These four beasts represent the four great Gentile powers that would dominate the Holy Land as mentioned in verse 17. History reveals that the four beasts are as follows: 1.) lion-Babylon, 2.) bear-Persia, 3.) leopard-Greece, 4.) 10 horned beast-Rome.
Nero, although being a mad power hungry ego-maniac never fulfilled the prophecies of the little horn of Daniel. The ten-horns symbolize the ten kings of Revelation 17 that will reconfigure the ancient Roman Empire in the Last Days catapulting the Antichrist to supremacy.
Question # 139 M (02-04-03) When the peace treaty of Daniel 9:27 is enacted, will it be just a peace treaty for Israel which will become a false peace, or does it mean peace for the whole world and not only just for Israel? I am wondering that when the covenant is in place, could there still be war/destruction going on in other parts of the world?
Answer……… Daniel 9:27 very clearly states that the confirmation of the covenant will be concluded with many nations. The primary motivation for the arrangement of this peace and security pact is specifically to resolve the Israeli-Arab Conflict in the Middle East. At the conclusion of the Persian Gulf War of 1991, it was readily agreed upon by the power-brokers of the world that the Middle East and the volatile Israeli-Palestinian Conflict presented the number one threat to world peace. The mantra of the day was a call for a “new world order”! The major powers of the world under the auspices of the UN confederated together to sponsor the Madrid Peace Conference to search for a solution to the “Israel” problem. That endeavor resulted in the Oslo Peace Process in 1993, with the US becoming the primary caretaker of the process. The Oslo process failed, and with its failure propelled America into the cross-hairs of international terrorism. The covenant of peace/security that will eventually be completed by the Antichrist will primarily bring a “gentleman's-paper peace” type of stability to the Middle East region for a short time. However the rest of the world will continue to see festering controversies with complexities, and the rumor of war will abound the world over. Finally the Antichrist, who will become hell-bent on world domination will be confronted by the Kings of the East (China, Korea, etc) and by Russia with her multiple allies (Persia, Libya, etc.) in the Middle East, and principally around Israel.
I know that many people believe that the first 3-1/2 years of the Tribulation will be a time of relative world peace, but in reality it will be a false peace, and will be a very perilous era.
(II Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.)
(Matthew 24:6-7 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.)
Question # 140 (02-10-03) How is it that Jews are assumed to have migrated to Europe after 70 A.D., yet Moses said Israel would "Return to Egypt", i.e., Africa? And from there (Egypt), be dispersed throughout all the world via slavery? Was Moses a false prophet? Did he not know? Or have we all been deceived?
Answer……… Well, there is one thing for certain and that is the fact that Moses was certainly not a false prophet. Moses was deemed worthy of God to appear with Christ at the Mount of Transfiguration event. Had Moses falsely prophesied anything, he could not have appeared with Jesus. (Matthew 17:3;Mark 9:4; Luke 9:30) Furthermore, I simply cannot recall any scriptures that convey the idea that Moses ever prophesied that Israel would return into Egypt (Africa) and from there be dispersed throughout the world. I suspect that you may be confusing an earlier prophecy relative to Israel through Abraham. (Genesis 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed (Israel) shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, (Egypt) and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;) Please advise me further if this answer is unhelpful or misses the point of your inquiry.
