Prophecies concerning Egypt in these last days right out of our headlines: “The burden against Egypt. Behold, the LORD rides on a swift cloud, and will come into Egypt; the idols of Egypt will totter at His presence, and the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst. "I will set Egyptians against Egyptians; everyone will fight against his brother, and everyone against his neighbour, city against city, kingdom against kingdom. The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst; I will destroy their counsel, and they will consult the idols and the charmers, the mediums and the sorcerers. And the Egyptians I will give into the hand of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them," says the Lord, the LORD of hosts.
Isaiah 19:1-2.
We see calamity and death arising out of Egypt, playing on our news broadcast every night. The scenes are most troubling, as civil unrest is developing between groups loyal to the President of Egypt (or Pharaoh) Hosni Mubarak. And it is spreading. How will this play out? People are beginning to notice a similarity between what is happening and this prophecy that Isaiah spoke of in his days in chapter 19. As God brought judgment on Egypt for their idolatry in ancient times, Isaiah speaks of another time when judgment will be brought down on Egypt.
