Things Will Change

 This is really hard to imagine, but it says:

In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, 

and Assyria will come into Egypt, and Egypt into Assyria, 

and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians. 

In that day Israel will be the third with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth, whom the Lord of hosts has blessed, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel my inheritance.”

Isaiah 19:23-25


  1. May God Bless you, Sandi.

  2. If only Peace would come to all in the Middle East, thank-you for this post.


  3. Sandi,
    I’m enjoying your recent trend to present a biblical scripture together with questions/commentary on how it is to be interpreted. The way I see it, “Things will change” is the message of Isaiah 19:23-25, but let us not ignore the KIND of change. Without doubt, change is an essential part of life, and our ability to adapt and embrace it is crucial for growth and development. And, while the passage does suggest a significant transformation in the relationships between Egypt, Assyria, and Israel, it’s important to consider how Isaiah may have been teaching how we all need to learn to get along. The passage describes a future scenario where Egypt and Assyria, historically seen as enemies or oppressors of Israel, are united in worshiping the Lord alongside Israel. It depicts a time of peace and harmony between these nations, with God’s blessing. The passage carries the message of reconciliation, unity, and the inclusive blessing of God. It emphasizes a future where former adversaries are brought together in worship and fellowship, highlighting a profound shift in their relationship. As I was thinking about this passage, it occurs to me that it offers some guidance for the leaders involved with the conflict now between Ukraine and Russia. Peace may be at hand if changes can be agreed upon.

    1. That was beautiful, John. Thank you for that.

  4. But if the bible says it, then it will happen.

  5. I have read the Bible from start to finish, but it's impossible to remember all the scriptures. So, I had to get my Bible and re-read Isaiah 19:23-25 because I was stumped as to what it may mean. Although I like what John had to say, I will be studying this some more!!♥

  6. I never read this before. Thanx Sandi.

    God bless.
