God’s justice and judgement is no respector of people.  Whether you are God’s chosen (Israel) or one who has been a tormentor of God’s chosen (Egypt), we will each have a time where we are dealt with by the perfect justice of a Holy God.  When that day comes, we can choose to let Him measure us by our works and deeds.  No matter how many good things we have done, our sin would cause us to be damned.  Yet with Christ, we have been given a gift of being made right in God’s sight so that when He judges the follower of Jesus our sins have been blotted out.  We get to choose…I choose Jesus.

Lord, let me be a lighthouse for You showing all those whom I influence that You are God.

Revelation


Egypt had long been a dynasty.  A powerful nation with significance well beyond its region.  Yet Ezekiel 29 tells of the nation losing its importance. Not only did this become fulfilled (see above link) but it shows the root issue that caused their failure.  They pridefully claimed credit for their successes…even to the point of claiming creation for the Nile river.  Our Biblical Worldview has its beginning in being Made by God.  Genesis 1-2 teaches that God made all of creation (that includes Egypt and the Nile River) and that God made humans in His image.  Egypt proudly supplanted God in their own worldview and that pride led to their fall.  Even in this, God’s desire was that all Egypt would ‘know that He is God’.
