Isaiah 19 Speaks to a 'Day of Purging' Prior to Messiah's Ascension to David's Throne

Reader comment on item: Hunger Growls in Egypt
in response to reader comment: A question from a Russian reposting of this article

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Nov 4, 2014 at 12:11

Egypt bears an inexorable link with the people of Israel, going back to the days of Joseph and Moses; this link is one that shows how the LORD uses heathen nations to bear His judgment and Egypt ranks higher than Babylon from two perspectives: Babylon is used and though there was a brief time of a couple of ancient leaders which acknowledged the hand of the LORD, Babylon eventually falls, forever.

Egypt is used quite a number of time and is spoken of a number of times as being in alliances with the Jewish nation, which eventually brings Egypt into an alliance of eternal proportions as said in Isaiah 19:24.

This is echoed in Hosea 11:1, through 12. The land that sheltered the Son of God in His early days of the first advent does appear to be redeemed in the last days, even after the pronouncements of Isaiah 19. We read in Hosea 11:10) They shall go after the LORD; he will roar like a lion; when he roars, his children shall come trembling from the west;11) they shall come trembling like birds from Egypt, and like doves from the land of Assyria, and I will return them to their homes, declares the LORD.

So, while we read of the purge of Egypt's necromancy of the ancients (Isaiah 19:3), we are also reminded that Egypt does 'come to its senses;' in that day. Isaiah 19:19):

In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border. 20) It will be a sign and a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt. When they cry to the LORD because of oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and deliver them. 21) And the LORD will make himself known to the Egyptians, and the Egyptians will know the LORD in that day and worship with sacrifice and offering, and they will make vows to the LORD and perform them. 22) And the LORD will strike Egypt, striking and healing, and they will return to the LORD, and he will listen to their pleas for mercy and heal them. 23) In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and Assyria will come into Egypt, and Egypt into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians. 24) In that day Israel will be the third with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth, 25) whom the LORD of hosts has blessed, saying, "Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel my inheritance."

Let it be sufficient to day that we are yet to be in that day; yet it is on approach.
