Egypt’s Importance

food for thought header 2
Egypt is located at the southern end of the “land bridge” connecting the continents of Europe, Asia and Africa. The value of this piece of real estate in the Middle East has been proved by centuries of fighting.

Egypt was powerful and splendid in ancient times. But from the 6th century BC onwards, the splendor and might of Egypt dwindled to a shadow. In fact, there are few stronger contrasts in any inhabited country than that of the ancient glory, dignity, power and wealth of Egypt and its later insignificance.

But prophecy tells us that Egypt will again be “rich” at the end times. This would attract the south-ward invasion of the King of the North. Two news items may further elucidate:

Mineral riches that have been found in and under the Sinai, and, the existence of a huge oil basin extending from Libya’s Sirte Basin to the Suez Gulf.

These are all part of the spoils that Gog and Magog will try to wrench from the Middle East (See Ezekiel 38:12).
