The latest Legacy Letter was sitting in my inbox this morning. Leon Sexton starts off by quoting Dan 11:5. He comments how most of the world seems to think of the latest toppling of dictatorships in the Middle East as a positive turn of events, it will eventually lead to a tragic confrontation that will repeat many of the tragedies of history.
He explains how many nations in that part of the world are looking for a return to the “Golden Age of the Caliphate” or the “Golden Age of Islam” where they dominated a good portion of the world. Whether by peaceful means or not, “restore it they will!”
He then goes into a little bit of history you just don’t hear about very often.
Close the [Suez] Canal and Europe goes to war!
It would not be the first time. In 1956, Egypt nationalized the Suez Canal and banned Israeli ships from using it. Egypt also threatened banning British and French shipping because both these European countries refused to finance the building of the Aswan Dam as previously agreed. Britain, France, and Israel invaded Egypt and forced the re-opening of the Canal. Could this happen again? Yes it could!
Yemen, Sexton points out, is important because they control the Strait of Bab el-Mandab between the Red Sea and Indian Ocean. “This is also the area where Somali pirates have been active. Both Yemen and Somalia were part of the Caliphate.”
Whether or not Egypt is the actual King of the South, it seems evident they will play a major role as we draw near to the time of the end.
He ends the letter with information about the Feast of Tabernacles in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It is well worth it, IMO, if you can afford the plane ticket.
