An oracle concerning Egypt.
Behold, the Lord is riding on a swift cloud
and comes to Egypt;
and the idols of Egypt will tremble at his presence,
and the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them.
And I will stir up Egyptians against Egyptians,
and they will fight, each against another
and each against his neighbor,
city against city, kingdom against kingdom;
and the spirit of the Egyptians within them will be emptied out,
and I will confound their counsel;
and they will inquire of the idols and the sorcerers,
and the mediums and the necromancers;
and I will give over the Egyptians
into the hand of a hard master,
and a fierce king will rule over them,
declares the Lord God of hosts.
I’m not saying that the current rioting in Egypt is a fulfillment of Isaiah 19. I would like to point out the similarities though. There are elements of unfulfilled prophecy in this chapter, especially in verses 16-25. If this particular section that I have quoted above has future ramifications, it will not be difficult for the LORD to bring this to pass. Some may look at a passage like Isaiah 19 and say that there is no way that this could happen. God knows all things in advance. I’m still studying the matter.
