Here we are in May 2012, roughly 14 months after the Egyptian uprising. We are on the eve of the Egyptian Presidential Elections and they are fighting across the country regarding the choices they have for a president. Just a point of consideration with this reblog. I am not suggesting what we are seeing is the prophecy of Isaiah 19. It is definitely worth watching. The surprise will be if the leader is not a brutal dictator. There have not been many peaceful leaders emerge from Egypt or the Middle East.

Things could get real interesting on planet Earth if the Nile River goes dry as suggested later in this chapter.

“Then the spirit of the Egyptians will be demoralized within them; and I will confound their strategy, so that they will resort to idols and ghosts of the dead and to mediums and spiritists. Moreover, I will deliver the Egyptians into the hand of a cruel master, and a mighty king will rule over them,” declares the Lord GOD of hosts.

Verse 3: Look at the two verbs in the initial part of the verse. The Egyptian spirit is to be emptied and demoralized. The translation of “confound” does not tell the whole story.

One could get the idea that the Egyptians will have many ideas and solutions to try to stop the civil war.  These ideas (political, economic, religious, etc.) will be repeatedly shot down by God.

    • Thanks for reading and thanks for commenting. I appreciate your insights and critique. At the core of what I believe I am in your camp in regards to the length of the posts. I would like to make them longer as well. The reality of our culture is we live in a “Twitter” world. Longer posts unfortunately lose people’s attention. Research I have read and anecdotal evidence from the blog back this up. When I get over 600-700 words the amount of clicks decreases. One of my most popular posts is less than 300 words. It is fascinating to see what gains people’s attention and what does not. I have posted blogs that I thought were not that great and they get tremendous response. I have posted some blogs that I thought were really good and they were not that well received. I do read people’s comments and take them into consideration. Please feel free to share, comment, etc. Crunch time on planet earth. Time is winding down. Jesus is returning soon and He is not going to be very pleased.
