Will the Nile River Run Dry?

Nile River over Luxor, Egypt 10-9-19

Does the Bible prophesy the Nile River will dry up? Among certain unfulfilled prophesies this one about the Nile is quite troubling. How could such a devastating thing even happen? Is it real? The prediction is found in the prophecy of Isaiah, chapter 19.

The waters of the Nile will fail to rise and flood the fields. The riverbed will be parched and dry. The canals of the Nile will dry up, and the streams of Egypt will stink with rotting reeds and rushes. All the greenery along the riverbank and all the crops along the river will dry up and blow away. Isaiah 19:5-7 NLT

Could this really happen? It is as real as today’s headlines.

Egypt’s options dry up as Nile dam talks break down Egypt has been holding talks for years with Ethiopia and Sudan, which have long complained about Cairo’s overwhelming share of the river. The Nile supplies more than 90% of Egypt’s fresh water, although Egyptians have one of the lowest per capita shares of water in the world. The latest breakdown in talks with Ethiopia over its construction of a massive upstream Nile dam has left Egypt with dwindling options as it seeks to protect the main source of fresh water for its large and growing population.

Talks collapsed earlier this month over the construction of the $5 billion Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, which is around 70% complete and promises to provide much-needed electricity to Ethiopia’s 100 million people. But Egypt, with a population of around the same size, fears that the process of filling the reservoir behind the dam could slice into its share of the river, with catastrophic consequences. Pro-government media have cast it as a national security threat that could warrant military action. Israel Hayom

We have been looking at Isaiah 19 for awhile now, and it is a severe judgment in verse 12: “what God plans, what Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies is going to do to Egypt.” Yet, the chapter does not end there, but with great news. The resulting repentance of Egyptians causes them to cry out to the God of Israel!

In that day five of Egypt’s cities will follow Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies. They will even begin to speak Hebrew, the language of Canaan. One of these cities will be Heliopolis, the City of the Sun. In that day there will be an altar to Yehovah in the heart of Egypt, and there will be a monument to Yehovah at its border. It will be a sign and a witness that Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies is worshiped in the land of Egypt. When the people cry to Yehovah for help against those who oppress them, he will send them a savior who will rescue them.Yehovah will make himself known to the Egyptians. Yes, they will know Yehovah and will give their sacrifices and offerings to him. They will make a vow to Yehovah and will keep it.Yehovah will strike Egypt, and then he will bring healing. For the Egyptians will turn to Yehovah, and he will listen to their pleas and heal them. Isaiah 19:18-22 NLT

Wow! Can you believe it? What a wonderful salvation in the end. Finally, there will also be something similar happening in the area of ancient Assyria which is now Syria and the area where the Kurds now live.

In that day Egypt and Assyria will be connected by a highway. The Egyptians and Assyrians will move freely between their lands, and they will both worship God. And Israel will be their ally. The three will be together, and Israel will be a blessing to them. For Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies will say, “Blessed be Egypt, my people. Blessed be Assyria, the land I have made. Blessed be Israel, my special possession!” Isaiah 19:23-25 NLT

Wow again! Fasten your seat belts, the ride may get a little bumpy in the near future. This is a literal prophecy for our day, soon to be fulfilled. Watch and pray.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray and thank Him for rain.

Egypt in Free Falll

28 06 2013

APTOPIX-Mideast-Egypt_Horo1-635x357Today’s blaring headline in The Times of Israel:

Two dead, including US citizen, in clashes across Egypt: Israeli analyst: Egypt is in a free fall; 70 people injured, protesters storm 3 Muslim Brotherhood offices, torch ruling party headquarters in Alexandria. Two people are dead and over 70 people injured across Egypt Friday in clashes between supporters and opponents of the country’s Islamist president.

The article goes on to quote Israel’s Channel 2 News “Egypt is in a free fall,” commented Channel 2′s Arab affairs analyst Ehud Ya’ari Friday evening.”

And this is only Friday night. The big anti-government protests are scheduled for Sunday, the first anniversary of Mohammed Morsi, Egypt’s President from the ranks of the Muslim Brotherhood. There are calls for millions of Egyptians to protest all over the country. Will this be a reversal of the Arab Spring revolution? No, it will not. My opinion is based on Isaiah 19, which I call the Arab Spring prophecy. I have written much about it already. Here is a link to the eight-step timeline in my May 8, 2013 commentary. That blog also has links to my previous posts on the same subject.

All of this is clarified by simply reading Isaiah 19. Please read it prayerfully, as a watchman on the wall. Here are just the first four verses.

The burden against Egypt.

​​Behold, Yehovah rides on a swift cloud,
​​And will come into Egypt;
​​The idols of Egypt will totter at His presence,
​​And the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst.
​​“I will set Egyptians against Egyptians;
​​Everyone will fight against his brother,
​​And everyone against his neighbor,
​​City against city, kingdom against kingdom.
​​The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst;
​​I will destroy their counsel,
​​And they will consult the idols and the charmers,
​​The mediums and the sorcerers.
​​And the Egyptians I will give
​​Into the hand of a cruel master,
​​And a fierce king will rule over them,”
​​Says the Lord, Yehovah of hosts. Isaiah 19:1-4
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!)
