25 Jan Bombings tear through Cairo, Egypt
On Saturday, as tens of millions of Egyptians commemorated the anniversary of the first Egyptian Revolution, multiple bombings, carried out by Islamist extremists, tore through the city of Cairo. First, it is essential that we remember our bothers and sisters in Egypt. But we should note that since the second revolution that took place on June 30 last year, (three weeks after I left Cairo), the fulfillment of Isaiah 19:2 has continued to unfold before the world:
“So I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians; and they will each fight against his brother and each against his neighbor”
Needless to say, I believe that one of the most important eschatological passages in the Old Testament is now in the early phases of fulfillment. There are both terrible and glorious aspects of this prophecy to consider. In the season ahead, I will be discussing Isaiah 19, the beginning of its fulfillment, and the profound implications of this passage in great detail.
