"The Burden of Egypt"


 
 
Isaiah 19 proclaims...
1The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt:
and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.

 2And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

Clearly, most of the world is witness to this prophecy, right now, on TV.

Isaiah 19 gets worse all the way to verse 17...

17And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof                      shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the LORD of hosts, which he hath                            determined against it.

Then the good news for Egypt comes in Isaiah 19: 20-24...

20And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.

 21And the LORD shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the LORD in that day,                    and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the LORD, and perform it.

 22And the LORD shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the LORD,         and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.

 23In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt,        and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.

 24In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land:

 25Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.
