Prophetic Mystery of the End Revealed!!
Acts 3 2.21 That He may send [to you] Jesus, the Christ, who has been appointed for you, 21 whom heaven must keep until the time for the [complete] restoration of all things about which God promised through the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time!
I would like to draw the attention of Doves to an article on the World Net Daily website (www.wnd.com) titled Prophetic Mystery of the End Revealed (link to article below)
This article highlights the wonder of prophecy... looking through and beyond the Rapture and Tribulation to Godís great future plan for the Middle East in the Millennial Kingdom, with Christ reigning from Jerusalem!! The end verses of Isaiah 19 (see excerpts below) highlight that there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, with Egypt, Assyria and Israel (Godís Heritage!!) in a Messianic League .. a blessing and joy in the midst of the Earth!!
I have recently read a book titled Killing Christians, by Tom Doyle. This is a challenging book (I read it twice), with martyrdom, but with so many coming to Christ through visions and dreams and finding in Him hope, love and the courage to face death if needed. Assyria probably includes Syria and parts of Iraq, countries torn apart from war. But what hope there is in the Bible... that in Godís Middle East plan these countries will be transformed, and those who have been martyred for Christ (and those who are Raptured) will in some way return with Him and witness the transformation of Egypt, Assyria and Israel into a joy and beautiful place in the midst of the Earth. The article is worth reading.
Isaiah 19 21..25 (Amplified abbreviated)
19 In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and My memorial stone to the Lord near its border. 20 It will become a sign and a witness to the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt. 21 And so the Lord will make Himself known to Egypt. 22 The Lord will strike Egypt, striking but healing it.
23 In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrians will come into Egypt and the Egyptians into Assyria; and the Egyptians will worship and serve [the Lord] with the Assyrians.
24 In that day Israel will be the third party with Egypt and with Assyria [in a Messianic league], a blessing (joy) in the midst of the earth, 25saying, ďBlessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My heritage
