Mercer today I have read your post with great joy and care. There are many things that I find outstanding with your article.
As a grandfather to a boy named Christopher I find your reference to another Christopher, this being Columbus very exhilarating. You mentioned a lot of facts about this wonderful man and I want to add more data to it.
I have been fortunate to own a book titled Cristobal Colon su vida y descubrimiento a la luz de sus profecias by Kay Brigham. She wrote this book after having discovered in the University of Miami the book published by the Italian government called Raccolta di documenti e studi which contains los Scritti di Cristoforo Colombo. In this book are the original complete text of Libro de las Profecias.
It is very interesting to point out that in his time there was a great fight to contain and defeat the Muslim onslaught of Spain and Europe, much in the same manner that we are experiencing today. In her book Mrs Brigham explains how important it was to find a new way to the Orient that bypassed the lands under the control of the Muslims and Colons desire to liberate Jerusalem from the Muslims. He was a devout Christian and a studied the prophecies of the Bible all through his life.
In his book The Last Exodus Mr. Dell E. Sanchez states that Colon was also Jewish and that in his trip most of the crew was Jewish. He states in several interviews that the main money contributer of the trips was also a Jew. God was using His people in a mighty way to fulfill His plans.

“ The 8 Tetrads since the birth of Christ-Is this all really a coincidence?“
I’ve worked on this for a while. Since Egypt has exploded I do believe we will see Isiah 19 being fufilled. As a woman with birth pangs, you’ll see things quickly spiral out of control. Out of control in every sense of the word. But hold on and look up, Our redemption draweth nigh.
Thy dead [men] shall live, [together with] my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew [is as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
I sent this to Pastor Mark Biltz, who discovered the Jewish tetrad, and Gary Stearman from Prophecy in the news. http://www.prophecyinthenews.com/
I have not heard back from Pastor Biltz but I know he read it. The woman who took my call at Prophecy in the news related Gary has read my thoughts and “really enjoyed my perspective”
It’s a long “Thesis” but I think most here will have to admit, it all can’t be a coincidence…..maybe some, but what until you see the 1948’s and the backwards 1948’s in the tetrads.
I believe with all my heart God encoded a message to us here. And one point I had to just shake my head with a big grin………..He wasn’t going have his people unaware. My goodness, wait until you see what He did for US!!!
He’s practically flashing I’m coming, I’m Coming soooooo soon!
Maybe you will think I have an overly active imagination but numbers don’t lie. If the Lord will place Lunar Eclipses on Jewish Feast days to SIGNAL US, then he will make the spacing of them mean something also!!
You will also find a 70 year timeline in the Holocaust to this 2014-2015 Tetrad……and a 100 year timeline from the start of WW! in 1914

This site has posted several articles concerning Egypt as mentioned in the prophecies of the Bible. The article posted here is by the author of the book Israelistine, Mr. Bill Salus.
The article is about Psalm 83 and the consequence it brings in the nations involved in the conflict. There is a graph with the modern name of the Nations listed in the Psalm. Please note also that this prophecy has never been fulfilled before.

“Is Egypt in Psalm 83? – Watch Bill on Jewish Voice“
By Bill Salus
Most modern day equivalents of the Psalm 83:6-8 participants are easily identifiable today. Clearly, the territories of Edom, Moab, and Ammon represents modern day Jordan. Furthermore, Tyre still exists in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip is located in ancient Philistia. However, Egypt is more difficult to identify causing some scholars to question its existence in the Psalm. (Read Article Now)
Ezekiel 29 (New International Version, ©2010)
A Prophecy Against Egypt
Judgment on Pharaoh
1 In the tenth year, in the tenth month on the twelfth day, the word of the LORD came to me: 2 “Son of man, set your face against Pharaoh king of Egypt and prophesy against him and against all Egypt. 3 Speak to him and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says:
“‘I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt,
you great monster lying among your streams.
You say, “The Nile belongs to me;
I made it for myself.”
4 But I will put hooks in your jaws
and make the fish of your streams stick to your scales.
I will pull you out from among your streams,
with all the fish sticking to your scales.
5 I will leave you in the desert,
you and all the fish of your streams.
You will fall on the open field
and not be gathered or picked up.
I will give you as food
to the beasts of the earth and the birds of the sky.
6 Then all who live in Egypt will know that I am the LORD.
“‘You have been a staff of reed for the people of Israel. 7 When they grasped you with their hands, you splintered and you tore open their shoulders; when they leaned on you, you broke and their backs were wrenched.[a]
8 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will bring a sword against you and kill both man and beast. 9 Egypt will become a desolate wasteland. Then they will know that I am the LORD.
“‘Because you said, “The Nile is mine; I made it,” 10 therefore I am against you and against your streams, and I will make the land of Egypt a ruin and a desolate waste from Migdol to Aswan, as far as the border of Cush.[b] 11 The foot of neither man nor beast will pass through it; no one will live there for forty years. 12 I will make the land of Egypt desolate among devastated lands, and her cities will lie desolate forty years among ruined cities. And I will disperse the Egyptians among the nations and scatter them through the countries.
13 “‘Yet this is what the Sovereign LORD says: At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the nations where they were scattered. 14 I will bring them back from captivity and return them to Upper Egypt, the land of their ancestry. There they will be a lowly kingdom. 15 It will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself above the other nations. I will make it so weak that it will never again rule over the nations. 16 Egypt will no longer be a source of confidence for the people of Israel but will be a reminder of their sin in turning to her for help. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.’”
No matter what you believe is reality, there is only one reality and those that have studied the prophecies written in the Bible know that their record is unequaled, 100 % true and fulfilled at the proper time.
With this in mind we can project the outcome of what will eventually happen in this uprising in Egypt against Mubarak.
The final government resulting from this revolution will find it impossible to keep the peace treaty with Israel as this would be interpreted as doing the same thing that Mubarak did. Their stance with the USA will be in line with the one taken with Israel.
Egypt will become controlled by radical Islamic elements that eventually will cause the complete destruction of this nation.
Two of the prophecies that refer to this future for Egypt are found in Ezekiel Chapter 29 and Psalm 83.
As this article is being written the news came on TV that Mubarak had resigned. It is worth noting that today is the 11 day of the month of the year 2011 and that 11 is a number very much linked to the occult.

Is Egypt in Psalm 83?
By Bill Salus
Most modern day equivalents of the Psalm 83:6-8 participants are easily identifiable today. Clearly, the territories of Edom, Moab, and Ammon represents modern day Jordan. Furthermore, Tyre still exists in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip is located in ancient Philistia. However, Egypt is more difficult to identify causing some scholars to question its existence in the Psalm.
Among them is the respected broadcast journalist David Dolan. He authored a book in
2001 entitled “Israel in Crisis, What Lies Ahead.” Dolan’s book along with Dr. Arnold
Fruchtenbaum’s, Footsteps of the Messiah, were among the first books published that
addressed Psalm 83 as a future war between Israel and its bordering Arab enemies. Dolan excluded, but Fructhenbaum included, Egypt in the Psalm 83 confederacy.(i)
Probably motivated by the February, 2011 crisis in Egypt, David Dolan wrote the
“Will Egypt eventually break its peace treaty with Israel? I suspect that in the end, the American-funded and trained army will not allow this to take place. I noted in my latest book, Israel in Crisis, that Egypt is not listed in Psalm 83 as being among a host of regional Arab powers that will attempt to destroy Israel in the prophesied end days, while Jordan, Lebanon and Syria are mentioned, along with the Palestinians.”
David Dolan 2/7/11
As much as I respect Dolan’s work, I respectfully disagree with his assessment on Egypt’s
non-participation in Psalm 83. Here is what the Psalm says:
O God, keep not thou silence: Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine
enemies make a tumult; And they that hate thee have lifted up the head. Thy take crafty
counsel against thy people, And consult together against thy hidden ones. They have
said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; That the name of Israel may be
no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent; Against
thee do they make a covenant: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the
Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre:
Assyria also is joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Selah
(Psalm 83:1-8, ASV; Emphasis Added)
The Enemies vs. The Haters
Asaph seems to identify two distinct groups inside the ten member confederacy. He says “thine enemies make a tumult; And they that hate thee have lifted up the head.” The New American Standard Version translates; “Your enemies make an uproar, And those who hate You have exalted themselves.”
Who are the “enemies” and “haters” of God listed inside the Psalm? I cover this extensively in my book Isralestine, The Ancient Blueprints of the Future Middle East in the chapter called “Olam Ebah, The Ancient Arab Hatred of the Jews.”
The Psalmist says the Lord has those who hate Him, but unlike the general carnal hatred characteristic of sinful humanity described in Romans 8:7, it is a deeply rooted hatred dating back almost 4000 years. These haters listed by Asaph include the Egyptian matriarch Hagar alongside the ancient patriarchs; Ishmael, Edom (Esau), Moab, Ammon, and Amalek. These all had familial relations with Abraham and histories of aggression against Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Jacob, and their Hebrew descendants.
Hagar mothered Abraham’s first son Ishmael. Esau was Abraham’s grandson from Isaac. Moab and Ammon were the children of Abraham’s nephew Lot. Lastly, Amalek was Abraham’s great-great-grandson through the line of Esau.(ii) Esau fathered the Edomites according to Genesis 36:1.
These individuals coveted the rich contents of the Abrahamic Covenant and entered into family feuds with the true Hebrew recipients of the covenantal promises. These individuals, along with their Hebrew counterparts, were the Benjamin Netanyahu’s, King Abdullah’s, and Hosni Mubarak’s of their time. Out from their loins nations were formed.(iii)
These jealous “haters” incubated an enmity against the Lord that manifested throughout the region against the Israeli descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Bible calls it an “ancient hatred,” also translated as a “perpetual enmity.” Ezekiel 35:1-5 informs us it was spawned by Esau identified with Mount Seir of ancient Edom.
The two Hebrew words used by Ezekiel are Olam Ebah, which when used together can be translated as, “a condition stemming back long ago in ancient times, perpetuated throughout time, manifesting into hostility with no apparent end in sight.”
As time progressed the Hebrews staked their covenantal claims throughout the Middle East.
These claims included;
1. Our God is the only God and you shall have no others before Him, (Exodus 20:3)
2. We will be a “great nation” above all others, (Genesis 12:2)
3. Arabs must bless Hebrews or be cursed, (Gen. 12:3)
4. You Arabs are trespassing on our Hebrew lands. (Genesis 15:18)
Suffice it to say the other four members of Psalm 83, Gebal, Philistia, Tyre, and Assyria, found it favorable to their religious, real estate, and cultural needs to resist these Hebrew claims and embrace the ancient hatred well established throughout the region. Thus, these four populations probably represent the “your enemies” group in Psalm 83.
The family feuds that developed can be studied in the chapters depicted in the image.
Hagar’s contemptuous behavior toward Sarah is one of the reasons we can include her among the Psalm 83 haters. Considering Hagar was an Egyptian according to Genesis 16:1 and had her son Ishmael marry an Egyptian bride in Gen. 21:21, we can safely conclude the Hagarenes represent Egypt in Psalm 83 through her and Ishmael’s family tree.
However it’s not quite that simple, some Bible translations list Hagarites or Hagrites, rather than Hagarenes. This has caused many to believe Psalm 83 is describing another ethnicity rather than Egyptians. This is because the Hagrites or Hagarites show up in 1 Chronicles 5:10,19-20 and elsewhere as a tribe dwelling approximately 300 miles northeast of Egypt, east of Gilead.
The Hebrew word used by the Psalmist to identify the Hagarenes was “Hagri.” Both the Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries, and the New American Standard Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries suggest “Hagri” has a possible matronymic relationship to “Hagar” the Egyptian matriarch.
Additionally, listed below are other reputable quotes supporting the Psalm 83 Hagar – Egyptian connection:
Holman Bible Dictionary
HAGARITE (Hag’ ahr ite) Name of nomadic tribe whom the tribe of Reuben defeated east of the Jordan River (1 Chron 5:10, 19-20). Reuben won because they called on and trusted in God. The tribal name is apparently taken from Hagar, Sarah’s maid and mother of Ishmael (Gen. 16).
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
Hagarenes / Hagarites / Hagrites
An Arab tribe, or confederation of tribes (1 Ch 5:10, 19, 20 the King James Version “Hagarites”; 1 Ch 27:31 the King James Version “Hagerite”; Ps 83:6 “Hagarenes”), against which the Reubenites fought in the days of Saul. In Gen 25:12-18 are recorded the descendants, “generations,” of Ishmael, “whom Hagar the Egyptian Sarah’s handmaid, bare unto Abraham.”
New Commentary on the Whole Bible: Old Testament
Ps. 83:6-8 tabernacles—i.e., tents. Edom—Esau’s descendants; they were located southeast of the Dead Sea and repeatedly attacked Israel (Psa. 137:7; Obadiah). Ishmaelites—descendants of Hagar and Abraham (Gen. 25:12ff.) as are the “Hagarenes.”
Barnes, Notes on the Old Testament – Ps. 83:6-8
And the Hagarenes—The Hagarenes were properly Arabs, so called from Hagar, the handmaid of Abraham, the mother of Ishmael. Gen. 16:1; 25:12. As connected with the Ishmaelites they would naturally join in this alliance.
Due to the confusion between the Hagarene verses Hagrite translation in Psalm 83, I emailed my friend Dr. Arnold Fructhenbaum of Ariel Ministries in 2008. Dr. Fruchtenbaum, a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, ranks among today’s most respected eschatologists. I asked him how certain he was that Psalm 83 identified Egypt through the Hagarenes. His email response to me was emphatic that Egypt is identified through the Hagarenes in Psalm 83.
Lastly, those who omit Egypt from Psalm 83 need to explain Egypt’s apparent future confrontation with Israel in Isaiah 19:16-18. Isaiah 19:16 declares Egypt will someday greatly fear Israel. From Isaiah’s time until now, this fear has only been in place since Israel’s defeat of Egypt in the wars of 1948, 1967, and 1973. It is this fear that drove former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to make peace with Israel in 1979.
Isaiah 19:17 says this fear evolves into a terror of Israel that overtakes all of Egypt. Isaiah 19:18 predicts this terror results in Egypt allowing Hebrew to be spoken in five Egyptian cities. One of these cities will be renamed, the “City of Destruction.” These three passages encourage the possibility that Egypt’s participation in Psalm 83 provokes the wrath of the Israeli Defense Forces against at least 5 Egyptian cities. In the aftermath of an I.D.F. victory over Egypt, five cities promote Hebrew as the spoken language. This suggests Jews migrate into these five cities taking their language, religion and culture with them.
Some suggest Isaiah 19 deals with the Antichrist’s invasion of Egypt specified in Daniel 11:42-43. Although portions of Isaiah 19 may find partial association with Daniel 11:42-43, it is doubtful that Isaiah 19:16-18 finds any association.
Why would the Antichrist take over 5 Egyptian cities and allow Hebrew to become the spoken language? It is commonly understood the Antichrist will be attempting Jewish genocide at the time. If this is the case it would be contrary to his overall purposes to allow 5 cities in Egypt to promote the language of Hebrew.
For the above reasons I strongly believe that Egypt is identified in Psalm 83. Therefore, unlike David Dolan, I believe Egypt will someday break its peace treaty with Israel and join the Psalm 83 confederacy.
