There is no shortage today of articles outlining the burgeoning relationship between Egypt and Israel. It seems the two countries have manufactured a lasting relationship. Here are some articles:
Egypt’s president has urged Israel and the Palestinians to look to the “wonderful” example set by his country and the Jewish state and agree on a solution that lets them exist in peace as two neighboring states. Speaking Tuesday to the UN General Assembly, President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi described the Israel-Egypt model as “a real opportunity to write a bright page in the history of our region to move towards peace.”
THE EGYPTIAN foreign minister brought a breath of fresh air to the decades-long Arab-Israeli conflict when he stated unequivocally on August 21 that Israel could not be considered a terrorist state. This further step toward closer relations between Egypt and Israel resonated throughout the Arab world, where accusing the Jewish state of terror against the Palestinians is a basic propaganda tenet.
Considerable evidence suggests that relations between Egypt and Israel have steadily developed during the past two years and that they may be in the process of shifting from conventional cooperation to the level of strategic alliance. Foremost evidence is the following:
Sisi’s New Approach to Egypt-Israel Relations Cairo believes that relations with Israel are strategically and diplomatically beneficial, and the trend toward greater rapprochement will likely continue.
But as previously mentioned, it only seems that way. We know the opposite will happen as the Bible tells us so. Ezekiel 29 outlines a prophecy against Egypt for breaking their fellowship and support of Israel and involves the Tower of Syene that resides next to the Aswan Dam.
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. When they took hold of thee by thy hand,
, and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee. And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am the LORD: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it. Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia. Ez.29
Recently Israel appointed a new ambassador to Egypt. “Israel’s new ambassador to Egypt, David Govrin, on Wednesday presented his credentials to President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi at his palace in Cairo, enabling him to begin officially contacting Egyptian government officials in his capacity as a diplomatic representative.”
David Govrin is the 13th (rebellion) ambassador to Egypt since the signing of the peace treaty in 1979. More importantly, in a little over 2 years, we will arrive at the 40th year anniversary of the Egypt–Israel Peace Treaty that was signed 26 March 1979. Forty is a period of testing whether it be in years or days. The question is, will Egypt pass the test….not according to what the scripture says. It is also worth pointing out that God will make the land desolate for 40 years due to their betrayal; well into the Millennial Kingdom reign.
No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years. And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities among the cities that are laid waste shall be desolate forty years: and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries. Yet thus saith the Lord GOD; At the end of forty years will I gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were scattered: And I will bring again the captivity of Egypt, and will cause them to return into the land of Pathros, into the land of their habitation; and they shall be there a base kingdom. It shall be the basest of the kingdoms; neither shall it exalt itself any more above the nations: for I will diminish them, that they shall no more rule over the nations. And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel, which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall look after them: but they shall know that I am the Lord GOD. Ez 29.
Is this a prophecy that will be fulfilled before the Tribulation? The Lord say’s “I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.” This speaks to a humanitarian aid effort, for whole will help them once the Tribulation has started?
Should we see this prophecy unfold before March 26, 2019…the world will never recover, the Egyptians will be scattered around the world from the devastation created by the flood of the broken dam, and Israel will be in various wars until the signing of the deceptive peace treaty with the Antichrist. As always, time will tell.
