Egypt Restored to a Lowly Kingdom

The Egyptian Empire has forever fascinated the world. We marvel at the things they left behind so many years ago! Yet, they sinned greatly and paid for it greatly, suffering desolation and captivity for a time of forty years. That also means the Lord restored the Egyptian to their former land, but not to their former glory, for He said, “Yet, thus says the Lord GOD: ‘At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the peoples among whom they were scattered. I will bring back the captives of Egypt and cause them to return to the land of Pathros, to the land of their origin, and there they shall be a lowly kingdom” (Ezekiel 29:13-14).
That is why Egypt is the nation that it is today. Their land is not completely desolate, yet, it ranks among the “third world” nations of the earth.
Whatever the Lord says shall come to pass, it surely happens. Therefore, even as what He said about Egypt happened just as He said, so, what He says about the return of His Son Jesus Christ and the destruction of the world shall also come to pass. Are you prepared for that moment?
