December 1: God’s Promise to Egypt

God’s Promise to Egypt

From the time Joseph was taken to Egypt there has been a complicated relationship between Israel and Egypt.  Israel spent 430 years in bondage to Egypt, then God delivered Israel at the cost of bringing death, devastation and destruction to Egypt.  Yet, over the years, Israel often turned to Egypt when in need rather than turning to God.

Scripture is replete with God’s warnings to Egypt, but ultimately Egypt is one of three nations God’s specifically blesses!

Isaiah 19:18-23

In that day five cities in the land of Egypt will speak the language of Canaan and swear by the Lord of hosts; one will be called the City of Destruction.

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.  And it will be for a sign and for a witness to the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the Lord because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them.  Then the Lord will be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will know the Lord in that day, and will make sacrifice and offering; yes, they will make a vow to the Lord and perform it.  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.

In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians.

PRAY FOR THE CHURCH IN EGYPT TO REACH THE NATION WITH THE GOSPEL AND A LOVE FOR ISRAEL.
