As I was reading in Isaiah this morning I was struck with amazement at the works of Christ Jesus the Lord. This prophecy has a future fulfillment but in light of the global hostilities that exist today, striking. Just think – all of Egypt, Assyria (modern day portions of Iraq/Iran), Israel; believers in the risen Messiah Jesus. A major highway extending from Egypt to the geographical area of Mesopotamia through Israel. The Prince of Peace sitting on the throne of David. This brings great joy to my soul. O’ magnify the wonderful works of Christ Jesus the Lord.
The Lord will strike Egypt, striking but healing; so they will return to the Lord, and He will respond to them and will heal them. In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrians will come into Egypt and the Egyptians into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians. In that day Israel will be the third party with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth, whom the Lord of hosts has blessed, saying, “Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.” (Isaiah 19:22-25, NASB)
