Ezekiel 29, a most fascinating prophecy about the destruction of Egypt has been partially fulfilled. The bible says
“And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the LORD, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.” Eze 29:6
A staff is something you lean on for support and a partial definition of the use of the word “reed” in the Hebrew text is defined as a bone or shoulder joint. Israel has been leaning on Egypt for support since the summer of 2014 when Egypt’s head of government Al-Sisi, publicly announced a role in “protecting” Israel’s southern border at the Rafah Border Crossing to the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula. This has led to an ongoing warming of relations between the two countries where they share intelligence information concerning ISIS, Hamas, and Fatah. Recently Egypt agreed to extend the Egyptian side of the Gaza Strip buffer zone 1500 meters in width, instead of 1000 meters.
News article after article outlining the “friendly” relations between Egypt and Israel has been steady since that summer of 2014. The bible goes on to say
“When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand.” Eze 29:7
