The Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi has officially won Egypt's presidential election and will be the country's next president, the electoral commission has announced.
Morsi picked up 13.2 million votes out of just over 26 million, giving him about 51 per cent of the vote. His competitor, Ahmed Shafiq, the final prime minister under Hosni Mubarak, received 12.3 million. More than 800,000 ballots were invalidated.
Farouq Sultan, the head of the election commission, delivered a long speech before announcing the results in which he defended the body's "independence and integrity" amidst what he called meddling by unnamed political factions.
The two candidates filed 456 complaints about the electoral process, Sultan said, most of them allegations of either forgery or Christian voters being blocked from polling stations in Upper Egypt. The vast majority of those complaints were dismissed.
Political uncertainty ahead
Morsi's victory caps off more than a week of behind-the-scenes negotiations between the Brotherhood and the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF). He claimed victory just hours after last week's runoff election, based on unofficial numbers tallied by the Brotherhood, but the commission delayed its official announcement until Sunday.
In the intervening days, Khairat al-Shater, the Brotherhood's political boss, met generals from SCAF at least once. Sources say they were negotiating exactly what powers the president will have.
Despite Morsi's victory, many of those questions about his power remain unanswered.
Shortly before the polls closed last week, the generals issued a decree sharply limiting the powers of the new president. It permitted him to declare war, for example, only with the approval of the military council.
SCAF will also keep control of legislative power, and the budget, until a new parliament is elected. Egyptians went to the polls in November to elect a legislature, which was dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, but it was dissolved earlier this month after a high court ruling found parts of the electoral law unconstitutional.
Saad el-Katatni, the speaker of the now-dissolved parliament, also met with officials from SCAF, and told them that the Brotherhood would not accept the court ruling or the election-night decree. But it's unclear whether the Brotherhood ultimately accepted those decisions in exchange for the presidency.
Either way, the military council - which has promised to hand over power to a civilian government on June 30, in a "grand ceremony" - will remain a powerful force in Egyptian politics, despite the election of a civilian president.
Thousands of Brotherhood supporters burst into cheers on Cairo's Tahrir Square, waving national flags and chanting "Allahu Akbar!" or God is Great, greeting a dramatic victory.
No matter how prepared I am, I'm always torn. Between indescribable joy at the soon coming of our king and utter despair for the people of earth and whats fast approaching. If you are a Christian anywhete in the m.e. Or most of Africa, you are in some deep trouble right about now! :( pray, pray, pray for our brother and sisters!
Well Scott, big enough birth pang for you? Wondering if Morsi is gonna be the cruel overlord of Egypt that the Bible talks about? Thoughts anyone?
The world has Jimmy Carter to thank for the evil regime in Iran…but now our muslim-in-chief aka oblamer, ac wanna be, has far surpassed ole Jimmy…which seemed to be impossible to do…
This is ALL part of Gods Plan…He is bringing ALL of the evil to the surface in these nations surrounding Israel so that He Himself can wipe these evil enemies of Israel “off the face of the earth” as they so often threaten to do to Israel.
Stunning that Jerusalem, Gods City on Earth, is ALWAYS the target of these evil little muslim so called “leaders” that incessantly yap like Chiwawas. Wait, just wait until they get their come unpins from the Almighty God of Israel…whew…it’s a com’n!!! Amazing, how Gods Word is being fulfilled before our very eyes!
First we have Zechariah regarding ANYONE who dares to mess with Jerusalem!
3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Then we have Ezekiel. God had Ezekiel dedicate 8 Chapters to His final Judgment of these evil nations surrounding Israel. Jordan, Gaza, Lebanon, Egypt. Out of 8 Chapters, he assigns 4 of them to Egypt . That’s 4 Chapters , 4, that God had Ezekiel devote to the coming Judgment-destruction of Egypt, Chapter 29-32. Then we have Gog...ummm Putin, "visiting" Israel tomorrow?
Whew…LOOK UP Brothers and Sisters LOOK UP!Our Redemption draweth nigh...
P.S. Oh my goodness Brother Scott...those videos...WOW!Dont cha know, that Israel has gone "lock and load" after listening to these demonic people...WOW!
checking family final prep list...
OH Geepers Wheepers....anyone that didn't watch the vids Scott references...with discernment...is missing the effect.
Can't you just see it...God allowed these people to elect this government of their own volition...and they will form the United States of Arabs, thousands chanting and screaming they will "liberate Gaza tomorrow" and then turn Jerusalem into their Capital, not Cairo.
Then it said millions of martyrs will march on Jerusalem.
Does that remind you of a biblical passage that the hordes rush in like rushing waters?
This is surreal!
Guess we each do as we are lead...but the Cavers are fine tuning our preps and finalizing that list of the very last minute things to do when it looks like "things" could happen very quickly and without much warning.
Morsi doesnt officially take power til June 30th. Def get prepped tho Cavers cuz little old hurricane debbie suddenly had a change of heart (oh the magic of weather manipulation) and is now gonna be barreling up the east coast. Nothing like a natural disaster to take your mind off of world dominance?
Ok pinky...(for those of you in other nations or who dont watch cartoons, pinky and the brain are cartoons in which the sole goal is to takeover the world but they never can quite pull it off) lol!
Im still thinking July for war. One of the reasons is Israel has been holding off due to the olympics. And they start...on the 9th of Av. I'm still suspecting something sketchy to occur around then.
Funny I have a fb friend who is in Tel Aviv and there are some crazy protests going on there. The youmg adults are mad bevause they want housing and healthcare. She actually said to me "forget about hamas for a second, who cares about a few rockets, we want social justice" poor bibi, dealimg with this too. She posted video and it pretty intense. How can people by so blind?
As for rhe egyptians freely electing morsi, I dont think so. The Christiams in the north werent allowed to vote and they tjrew out 843,000 votes for shafiq. So the elections was hijacked by who else but the father of lies!
Just in case we are soon technologically seperated. I love each and everyone of you and you will be lifted in prayer until we are outta here!
Yea, Caver, that video grabbed me by the throat..Seeing the supernatural hatred for Israel and the Jews and the desire for their destruction - coupled with the prophetic implications around Jerusalem - all 'seen' 2,000 years ago by God's prophets....Sends chills down my spine, for many reasons.
Thanks for that Ally = many times over :)
This was chilling. Let;s pray for the believers everywhere and Jews.
We need to be awake to battle and the needs of the family all over this world.
This was like a movie or something but it's real. Egypt has much to get through and the Egyptian Christians in particular.
These are I think, the last days for the gentiles to be brought in.
I am praying to finish everything HE has given us to do All the forgiving and sharing and serving that He equips and Calls us to.
I'd love to read the Cavers prep list.. I can't think of anything to do other than sincerely love from the heart. I need more of that.
Geepers Miss Waterer,
This here board must not want me to post the list. It's ate it a couple times now.
Gonna do a short version....there are two list. One is the big one, what your family is gonna need to hunker down and survive for an extended period for virtually every type or combination of emergencies.
The one I was talking about was the "immediate" To-Do list for just before the panic sets in.
Think about it this way
....assume anything you have in the bank is going to be beyond reach for an extended period of time, if not forever. Get what you have out and in small bills, you want to be the one to make change...not the other guy.
....assume neither the banks or post office is going to open for a while....what do you have that is vital and requires monthly payments, maybe even real estate taxes...pay several months in advance and get receipts. Assume every institution out there is a thief and going to reposes even if failure to pay isn't your fault.
Refill all prescriptions for as far in advance as they will let you.
Lay in all the fresh gas and oil you may need in 5-10 gal portable containers.
These are the type of things we've planned if we have time to see it coming and get done before the panic lays in.
Hope that helps just a tad.
As stated MANY TIMES in the past,
Bears have NO CHANCE unless
12, 400 on the dow is taken out.
We are STILL above that level tonite,
dow down 51 at the moment.
I am one of those bears...
I am NOT on the bull side, why
should I be, just the mention
of the word "bull" makes me sick.
And yet, if stocks refuse to drop,
THAT will be WHAT it is.
Does not matter what is going on
in the ME, ect, IF stocks refuse
to drop and rally instead, the
END is delayed yet again.
I would feel REALLY GOOD if 12, 400
gets taken out, but NOT yet.
You sound like you believe something will happen really soon....what?
I am definately not up to speed.
I have big bags of rice and dried beans and canned fruit, period.
I put these up per David Wilkersons post two years ago.
HOPEFULLY, WE'LL BE RAPTURED!
Thanks for the info Caver. Very thought provoking.
Has anyone else here heard that we have American soldiers in Jordan?
Not sure just when, but this year....could be this week or months. I've been kind of expecting the Aug-Oct time frame but who knows.
The US and intentional financial house of cards is close to coming down....super hard. The ME is a tinderbox by itself...it or any number of weather related hiccups could bring the financial house of cards down.
I believe the European, Asian, and US banks and finances are so intertwined that when one goes, all follow quickly.
Once things start going down, what else are our enemies going to do to help nudge us off the cliff?
All I can do is be aware and try and have my family prepared to get us an a few neighbors through it.
Cary, yes...we have some troops in Jordan along the Syrian border.
We live near a Mennonite community and they have a general store with bulk grains and such. They, along with the Latter Day Saints and Amish, are the ultimate preppers. Honing my skills for bartering in the near future. See y'all soon. :-)
I must have written 10 different posts last night and didnt post any for concern of possibly scaring someone. I think Cavers advice, esp about money and medicine was right on! And holding on to receipts very important.
We are facing seberal different scenarios currently. Natural disasters of course, which are greatly increasing. Certainly some of these could affect our food chain and water supply greatly. Think large earthquake in California or the New Madrid. Even one in which very few people are harmed could shut down bridges across the Mississippi for a short to long time. 90% of our food comes from Ca. This also would affect chemical delivery to water purification plants. If you have a well, figure out a way to pump ur water without electric.
Banking collapse-this isn't a matter of if but a matter of when. I'm thinking, and so are thefincial experts that this will hit around the fall sometime.
War-sorry guys, but we all know its coming. :( Jesus warned us about all of this, so we would be ready. The election of Morsi sped this up a lot, I think! We took a big jump ahead on the timeline with this. Now, how much is war over there going to affect us here? Unknown. How much war they bring over here? Unknown. But lets look at a worse case scenario, say if the u.s. Keeps intervening in Syria. The bear and dragon have warned us repeatedly they will view this as an act of war. Do I think an invasion of the U.S. Is impossible? No. Do I think its likely? Yes. Will it be a surprise? To us no. To the general populace yes.
The Lord is with us and will not forsake us. No matter how much wwe can or cant prepare, the Lord is our source!
We do have some amount of control though. Pray, repent for our nation, and pray some more, praise God! I think how hard we get disciplined is going to depend on how much we turn around. And no, I haven't read The Harbinger or Joel Rosenberg's new book. We are all getting it from the same source! Lol! They have details, I'm more like the condensed version, seriously condensed.
I love you guys soooo much! I wish I was a better more mature Christian and could word things more sweetly. Maybe one day.
I keep getting this shoes message so Im just gonna go with it. If you have children, please make sure they have sturdy shoes in the next 2 or 3 sizes up! Do it soon. Shoes that will last through winter and can stand a lot of walking. Not fancy or cool, sorta bland so no one notices them. Everything I've written was from me, except the shoes. The shoes message was straight from the Holy Spirit!
Hi Ally & All~
Thank you for all these handy tips. I must confess I have been getting a prompting from the HS for a few weeks about the money portion and to divide it in the house into 1/3rds. He gave me a dollar amount but it could be different for us all. Seeing that video yesterday was quite something, I had to turn it off 3/4's of the way through :) The truth of evil rising to the surface as you say, really does hurt. I liked Scott's recommendation to use the discernment of the HS prior to watching it.
The shoes preparedness is a great tip Ally! Thanks so much for that. These kids can grow like weeds especially in the summer time.
Today I prayed as to what I needed to prepare for. We went out and finished to the best of our physical and financial abilities :) I would like to share another tip that we have done as well. That is to consider, if you are able to purchase some anti-theft deterrents for your homestead.
We already have an alarm system with a great monitoring system and God willing that will help should things go haywire. The other thing we did was invest in some other low cost, but very professionally looking dome units to add to the exterior of the home. You can mount them around the home and put in a couple of AA batteries and they last a long time. We were able to find a pack of 4 for around 16.00 online and it came with signs for interior and exterior of the home saying "this property is under surveillance" The blinking red light goes on day and night. I didn't feel like adding to our security package at a higher cost but I knew there were some areas that had some weak spots from observing from the road.
I know things will unfold as they must, but I feel the Lord does want us to pull together and share to prepare and then re-direct our energies back to him for the rest. The promptings I have been getting too Mr. and Mrs. C, have been about being prepared to help our neighbors, that feeling is very strong. If we are over prepared by some chance, the worst that happened is we have prepared for those who will be left behind and they shall find the blessings!! Thank you all again for sharing as a confirmation to me that the messages are very real.
GG-for a long time I have felt a lot of prep that people have been doing esp food will end up helping tribulation saints! I just went thru a tornado like 2 hours ago. All praise to Jesus! We are fine.posted about it on the next segment. I just found the timing to be very uh, unusual. Like an exclamation point!
