Isaiah 19 Highway
The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying,"Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance."
“In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth” v 24
All excerpts here are taken from the writings of Tom Craig whose book Isaiah 19 I highly recommend. A link has been made available alongside these notes.
Extraordinary events have unfolded across the Middle East - from the revolutions that occurred in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya - to the unrest in Syria and the threat of a nuclear Iran - are causing many to search out what the bible predicts will happen in these Nations during the “Last days.”
There is often confusion and despair when we observe the dark and difficult situation commonly referred to as the “Middle East Crisis” There is however an amazing chapter in the book of Isaiah that describes “a day” when amazing “outcomes” will occur as a result of God’s determined plans to fulfil His everlasting covenants with Israel and the Jewish people. God has provided scores of prophetic words and promises in scripture regarding the end times, with Isaiah 19 providing one of the most significant visions!
It would be wise of us all to “take heed”of what God has long declared in His word will soon happen in the Middle East - events that will impact the whole world. As the apostle Peter said:
“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts…..”(2 Peter 1:19)
God also reveals His prophetic plan for Egypt and Assyria in this chapter. In fact all across the Middle East people are turning to Jesus, both Palestinian and Jew. From across the Arabian peninsula sweeping across Iraq, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, Israel all the way back to Egypt, people are being reconciled to each other through the Lord Jesus Christ. Indeed the word written by the apostle Paul to the Romans is being fulfilled before our very eyes as the Spirit of God sweeps thousands into the Kingdom of God.
There are well over 500 houses of prayer which have sprung up all across what is now known as the Kings Highway throughout the entire Middle East. Once enemies, are now reconciled and working together to build a highway of love and restoration as the prophet Isaiah prophesied by the Spirit of God.
For this reason I am passionate about this project sweeping across the Middle East seeing people reconciled because they have found Jesus to be their Messiah.
