Egypt Is Favored Ahead Of Israel?

MTM held its third conference in this land of the descendants of Mizraim, the son of Ham, the son of Noah. This country is tense with rebels calling for a re-election due to millions reacting to the new president who represents the radically conservative Muslim Brotherhood Party. While all this political chaos is taking place, God is opening hearts in this historic biblical land. We found it very easy to engage in conversation about spiritual things with the Muslim people even though presenting Christ to a Muslim is illegal, and conversion to Christianity can be deadly for them. Unfortunately, Christians too often struggle with bitterness toward Islam and resort to silence in relation to evangelizing them.

God spoke to the ninety-five Egyptian pastors and leaders that attended the MTM conference and inspired them to again take up the torch of the Gospel in the power of His Holy Spirit in sessions taught by Brother Raymond Burkholder. The other two classes underscored primary avenues through which God can build the Kingdom of Christ in the Land of the Pyramids. Emmanuel Esh taught some stirring classes on how to present the Gospel to the sons of Ishmael. My subject involved raising Godly children so that our homes can become a living demonstration God can use to underscore the results of His holiness in family life. It can only be attributed to the work of the Holy Spirit how these three rather diverse subjects could blend so well and deeply challenge the Egyptian believers to actively enter the task of winning their neighbors and children to the Lord Jesus Christ.

This was my fourth opportunity to serve with MTM and I believe it was also the most impacting. God is doing a great work in the hearts of the Egyptians. The invitations again poured in for more conferences in the future. Please pray for wisdom as Brother Raymond plans and schedules future MTM conferences. Lord willing, Merle and Judy Flory will join MTM this fall as Raymond’s assistant, and the effect of these conferences will be multiplied for the Lord’s glory.

Isaiah 19 tells us, “In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.”
