Isaiah 19:21,24-25 KJV
And the Lord shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the Lord, and perform it.
 In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land:
 Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.
Never did I ever expect to come across a prophesy like this, and it came from no mean a prophet than Isaiah himself.
Watching the Discovery Channel just a few days ago, I learnt about Akhenaten and how he introduced the worship of one god in Egypt. By then Egypt had over 2,000 gods, and just like Moses, he was resisted in many ways. Even after his death, his tomb was desecrated by the locals.
Egypt, Babylon, Persia and Assyria were among the very powerful lifetime enemies of Israel, so for Isaiah to declare such a prophesy brings a lot thoughts to ponder on.
There’s definitely going to come a time when all the peoples will know is the Lord, the Lord of Host. But not without a turmoil, not without a fight, not without gloom and pain. These would precede the Light. All will eventually come to this knowledge. Bless the Lord for this privilege to know Him even now.
Have a blessed day. #TGIF
