Peaceful Traffic

Isaiah19: 23-25. “In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel mine inheritance.”

Considering the antipathy of these three nations down through history, this is an amazing prophecy, During the Millenial Reign of Jesus Christ, there will be a highway that unites these nations, with Israel in the middle being a blessing to both Egypt and Assyria. They will trade and work together, the land will be blessed, and all will be converted to belief in God.

Here’s another picture that strikes my fancy, though I don’t know that there’s any bibical basis for it. Β It combines the Old Testament story of the Israelites crossing the Red Sea with the prophecy of a highway through Egypt, Israel, and Assyria:

        Yes, it is, I agree. So glad I’m not teaching Isaiah. I’d be more suited to teaching the poetic forms and such of the Psalms. I once took a class in college called “Bible as Literature”. It was a ‘secular’ class that looked at the Bible from a literary view. BEST class I ever took, faith-wise. Added such a depth and understanding of the Bible that I never picked up on in Church. Also, read all 66 bks in 10 weeks! Shewwww, it was intense!

        It came at a time when my faith was lower than dirt. The Prof was an Orthodox Jewish Rabbi. What he brought to the discussion of the Old testament is/was beyond compare. To this day, though he is gone, I still call him Rebi.

    I know I have read Isaiah many times as well as the rest of God’s Word, for I have been around for a long time, πŸ˜‰ and it seems every time I read God shows me something new that He knows i need to learn. His Word truly is alive! You are doing a wonderful, God-led job of teaching this Linda. i am enjoying it very much. No matter how old I get or mature πŸ˜‰ I still enjoy learning from God’s Word. Thank you.

    1. There was a notification that comments were closed, but that’s all I could find–and I don’t think it was for the new post. I can look again. Probably just didn’t see it.
