Isaiah 19:2, Trend Update, Egyptian Violence

Isaiah 19:2 “So I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians; and they will each fight against his brother and each against his neighbor, city against city and kingdom against kingdom…”

This prophecy was written by Isaiah approximately 2,700 years ago. God states He is the one behind the actions and events.

Mid August 2013, Trend Update

Approximately 1 ½ months ago, the elected president of Egypt was overthrown in a coup by the military. The two fighting factions are the military of Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood. The situation in Egypt has grown progressively worse. The violence is escalating with over 600 people confirmed dead and over 4,000 injured in recent events. Violence is reported across the country. More protests are being planned.

Heat is making the stench from the corpses almost unbearable.  Ice is being brought in to chill the bodies. Islamists have attacked Christian targets in several areas torching churches, homes, and businesses. Buildings and property throughout Egypt are being burned. Tourists are not recommended to travel to Egypt. Joint military exercises between the United States and Egypt have been cancelled by President Obama.

News information was gathered from the Associated Press.

Again, I am not suggesting the events we are seeing today are Biblical Prophecy being played out before our eyes. It may be. Time will tell. I would probably have more conviction on prophecy unfolding if the Nile River goes dry. The Nile going dry has not happened in history to my knowledge.
