What does the bible say about what is happening in Egypt?

Hopefully, you are familiar with Joel Rosenberg. He is NY Times best selling author. He has written about 10 books, some are fictional accounts of what he expects to happen in the world in the next few years. Many reviewers of his books say things like "these stories are pulled from the headlines, tomorrow's headlines." Why do they say things like that? Well, it's because many of the things that he has published came true within weeks after the books were on store shelves. Some were true after the books were with the publishers, but before they hit the shelves.

Rosenberg has been interviewed at CNN, FOX, and numerous other news outlets. He has an uncanny way of telling us what will happen on the world-stage, before it happens. For example, in his first "fictional" book, he had Saddam Hussein launching "The Last Jihad" which involved attacks on the US using civilian aircraft. This book was written well before 9/11/01.

Rosenberg is a Christian of Jewish parentage. He was an adviser to Israel's Netanyahu the first time he was Israel's prime minister in the 1990s. He runs the Joshua Fund, which is a charity group that helps people in the Middle East.

    Some things can be a bit tricky, but this is from the modern NIV translation of the Bible

    ("In that day" in Isaiah refers to the end of the age - the time of the tribulation before Messiah's return.)

    Isaiah 19

    A Prophecy Against Egypt

    1 A prophecy against Egypt:
    See, the LORD rides on a swift cloud
    and is coming to Egypt.
    The idols of Egypt tremble before him,
    and the hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear.

    2 “I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—
    brother will fight against brother,
    neighbor against neighbor,
    city against city,
    kingdom against kingdom.
    3 The Egyptians will lose heart,
    and I will bring their plans to nothing;
    they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead,
    the mediums and the spiritists.
    4 I will hand the Egyptians over
    to the power of a cruel master,
    and a fierce king will rule over them,”
    declares the Lord, the LORD Almighty.

    5 The waters of the river will dry up,
    and the riverbed will be parched and dry.
    6 The canals will stink;
    the streams of Egypt will dwindle and dry up.
    The reeds and rushes will wither,
    7 also the plants along the Nile,
    at the mouth of the river.
    Every sown field along the Nile
    will become parched, will blow away and be no more.
    8 The fishermen will groan and lament,
    all who cast ...

    7 also the plants along the Nile,
    at the mouth of the river.
    Every sown field along the Nile
    will become parched, will blow away and be no more.
    8 The fishermen will groan and lament,
    all who cast hooks into the Nile;
    those who throw nets on the water
    will pine away.
    9 Those who work with combed flax will despair,
    the weavers of fine linen will lose hope.
    10 The workers in cloth will be dejected,
    and all the wage earners will be sick at heart.

    11 The officials of Zoan are nothing but fools;
    the wise counselors of Pharaoh give senseless advice.
    How can you say to Pharaoh,
    “I am one of the wise men,
    a disciple of the ancient kings”?

    12 Where are your wise men now?
    Let them show you and make known
    what the LORD Almighty
    has planned against Egypt.
    13 The officials of Zoan have become fools,
    the leaders of Memphis are deceived;
    the cornerstones of her peoples
    have led Egypt astray.
    14 The LORD has poured into them
    a spirit of dizziness;
    they make Egypt stagger in all that she does,
    as a drunkard staggers around in his vomit.
    15 There is nothing Egypt can do—
    head or tail, palm branch or reed.

    16 In that day the Egyptians will become weaklings. They will shudder with fear at the uplifted hand that the LORD Almighty raises against them. 17 And the land of Judah will bring terror to the Egyptians; everyone to whom Judah is mentioned will be terrified, because of what the LORD Almighty is planning against them.

    18 In that day five cities in Egypt will speak the language of Canaan and swear allegiance to the LORD Almighty. One of them will be called the City of the Sun.[a]

    19 In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. 20 It will be a sign and witness to the LORD Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the LORD because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and he will rescue them. 21 So the LORD will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the LORD. They will worship with sacrifices and grain offerings; they will make vows to the LORD and keep them. 22 The LORD will strike Egypt with a plague; he will strike them and heal them. They will turn to the LORD, and he will respond to their pleas and heal them.

    23 In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. 24 In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing[b] on the earth. 25 The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.”

    Obviously, you are not much of a student of the Bible. But thanks for chiming in anyway.

    What about the false prophet?
  • bones327 Katherine 2011/02/09 17:14:17

    It is expected that there will be many false prophets and false messiahs as the end of the age approaches. See Matthew 24 and 24. However, "the false prophet" is the principal aide of the Anti-Messiah who will be running the One World Government at the end of this age.

    I am not sure what your question is.

    That probably answers it. I was asking if there was a false profit also predicted soon.
