Someone just sent me an e-mail discussing (read:warning) how the current turmoil in Egypt is another "piece of the puzzle" in Biblical end-times prophecy. The person failed to expound on where in the Bible it says anything about this and how Egypt comes into play, so I'm curious...does it?
Do you--as a Christian--believe that this is significant, religiously speaking? Or if you're not Christian but are familiar with the Bible, what are your thoughts about how someone might make that connection?

If it's the "fall of Egypt" that's one of the supposed signs, then I'd say that what's happening today doesn't qualify--at least not yet. What we're seeing is the fall of the dictator-president, not the fall of the country. Hopefully what we'll see happen is the birth of democracy in that nation, rather than a descent into another form of dictatorship. Whatever happens in the near future, though, remains to be seen. Today, I have hope that the people of Egypt will find themselves on the road to a democratic nation that welcomes people of different faiths, and gives a voice to all citizens--as our country is supposed to do.
