EGYPT IN PROPHECY


 

Egypt has a big part to play in end time events. There will be a king who claims to be a descendant of the ancient Pharaohs.

 

Isa 19:4  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.

 

Isa 19:11  Surely the princes of Zoan are fools; Pharaoh's wise counselors give foolish counsel. How do you say to Pharaoh, "I am the son of the wise, The son of ancient kings?"

 

When Israel [Great Britain] is going through the time of Jacobís trouble: they turn to Egypt for help, instead of turning to God.

 

Hos 7:11  "Ephraim also is like a silly dove, without senseó They call to Egypt, They go to Assyria.

 

Isa 30:1  "Woe to the rebellious children," says the LORD, "Who take counsel, but not of Me, And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, That they may add sin to sin;

Isa 30:2  Who walk to go down to Egypt, And have not asked My advice, To strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, And to trust in the shadow of Egypt!

 

Isa 31:1  Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, And rely on horses, Who trust in chariots because they are many, And in horsemen because they are very strong, But who do not look to the Holy One of Israel, Nor seek the LORD!

 

Egypt will be no help to Israel.

 

Isa 30:3  Therefore the strength of Pharaoh Shall be your shame, And trust in the shadow of Egypt Shall be your humiliation.

 

Eze 29:6  "Then all the inhabitants of Egypt Shall know that I am the LORD, Because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.

Eze 29:7  When they took hold of you with the hand, You broke and tore all their shoulders; When they leaned on you, You broke and made all their backs quiver."

 

Isa 36:6  Look! You are trusting in the staff of this broken reed, Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust in him.

 

The end time Pharaoh is a beast.

 

Eze 29:3  Speak, and say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I am against you, O Pharaoh king of Egypt, O great monster who lies in the midst of his rivers, Who has said, 'My River is my own; I have made it for myself.'

 

Eze 32:2  "Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say to him: 'You are like a young lion among the nations, And you are like a monster in the seas, Bursting forth in your rivers, Troubling the waters with your feet, And fouling their rivers.'

 

Egypt is in for a terrible time; the Egyptians will be punished greatly.

 

Isa 19:1  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.

Isa 19:2  "I will set Egyptians against Egyptians; Everyone will fight against his brother, And everyone against his neighbor, City against city, kingdom against kingdom.

 

Isa 19:14  The LORD has mingled a perverse spirit in her midst; And they have caused Egypt to err in all her work, As a drunken man staggers in his vomit.

 

Egypt will be decimated, and dispersed throughout the earth.

 

Eze 29:9  And the land of Egypt shall become desolate and waste; then they will know that I am the LORD, because he said, 'The River is mine, and I have made it.'

 

Eze 29:11  Neither foot of man shall pass through it nor foot of beast pass through it, and it shall be uninhabited forty years.

Eze 29:12  I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate; and among the cities that are laid waste, her cities shall be desolate forty years; and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them throughout the countries."

 

It is God the Father who uses King Nebuchadnezzar to smite Egypt and it is God the Father who brings them back to Egypt.

 

Isa 19:22  And the LORD will strike Egypt, He will strike and heal it; they will return to the LORD, and He will be entreated by them and heal them.

 

God loves Egypt, and will eventually elevate them to the same status as Israel.

 

Isa 19:25  whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, "Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance."

 

Egypt is decimated by Nebuchadnezzar; King of Babylon.

 

Eze 29:18  "Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon caused his army to labor strenuously against Tyre; every head was made bald, and every shoulder rubbed raw; yet neither he nor his army received wages from Tyre, for the labor which they expended on it.

Eze 29:19  Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: 'Surely I will give the land of Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; he shall take away her wealth, carry off her spoil, and remove her pillage; and that will be the wages for his army.

Eze 29:20  I have given him the land of Egypt for his labor, because they worked for Me,' says the Lord GOD.

 

Eze 30:4  The sword shall come upon Egypt, And great anguish shall be in Ethiopia, When the slain fall in Egypt, And they take away her wealth, And her foundations are broken down.

 

Eze 30:10  'Thus says the Lord GOD: "I will also make a multitude of Egypt to cease By the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon.

Eze 30:11  He and his people with him, the most terrible of the nations, Shall be brought to destroy the land; They shall draw their swords against Egypt, And fill the land with the slain.

 

Pharaoh and his henchmen are in the nether parts of the earth. [pit.]

 

Eze 31:2  "Son of man, say to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his multitude: 'Whom are you like in your greatness?

 

Eze 31:18  'To which of the trees in Eden will you then be likened in glory and greatness? Yet you shall be brought down with the trees of Eden to the depths of the earth; you shall lie in the midst of the uncircumcised, with those slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude,' says the Lord GOD."

 

Eze 32:18  "Son of man, wail over the multitude of Egypt, And cast them down to the depths of the earth, Her and the daughters of the famous nations, With those who go down to the Pit:

 

Eze 32:31  "Pharaoh will see them And be comforted over all his multitude, Pharaoh and all his army, Slain by the sword," Says the Lord GOD.

 

Egypt is decimated at the time that Israel is starting to prosper after the second exodus.

 

Eze 29:21  'In that day I will cause the horn of the house of Israel to spring forth, and I will open your mouth to speak in their midst. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.' "

 

The Egyptians are gathered back to Egypt after forty years.

 

Eze 29:13  'Yet, thus says the Lord GOD: "At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the peoples among whom they were scattered.

 

During the time of Jacobís trouble: Jacob calls to Egypt for help, but it is not forthcoming. There will be an end time Pharaoh, who is actually a beast, and rules Egypt cruelly. Nebuchadnezzar decimates Egypt, and they are scattered through the nations for forty years. Eventually the Egyptians come back to Egypt after forty years and turn to God.
