Political events that have been developing in Egypt over the last few weeks have drawn the attention of the world upon that nation. It is always interesting – and important for the Christian – to examine such things in the light of God’s word. Bible history of course has a lot to say of Egypt and the role that nation played in the history of Israel in Old Testament times.
But the Bible has more to say about Egypt than just to record historical events. It very clearly points to a role played by Egypt in the events that will revolve around the Antichrist and continue even until the time of the end, Daniel 11:40. While, at this point, the immediate future for Egypt may involve great uncertainty, the word of God reveals to us the infallible purposes of the Sovereign God of Heaven whose counsel regarding that nation will be carried through. God declares “the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.” (Isaiah 46:10)
