A Cruel Lord

Isaiah 19: 4-5. “And the spirit of Egypt  shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards. And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord: and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts.”

Because of the terrible civil war that will destroy Egypt, most Egyptians will resort to ancient gods, spirits, wizards and enchantments. God has promised that “a fierce king, a cruel lord” will rule them.  That person, of course, is Antichrist. After many centuries of being rule by men, the final ruler of Egypt before Jesus Christ establishes His kingdom will be the most evil, cruel, and ruthless of all.  Under his reign, Egypt will suffer as never before. This reign will be detailed in the next several verses of this chapter.
