The Lord Will Overthrow Egypt
Today I read Ezekiel 31 where the Lord talks about the Pharaoh of Egypt and his fall. As I have said and thought before, the Israelites must really have disliked the Egyptians for the Lord to spend so much time on the fall of Egypt to His prophet. I suppose that would be like in our day the Lord telling us of the fall of Afghanistan or Iran and Iraq. Personally though if I were a prophet receiving the revelation of God, I would not want so long and so much effort spent on the downfall of people. No matter how many atrocities they have committed, they are still people and knowing that the Lord will make them face justice is enough for me. I don't need to dwell on it or know the gory details. Perhaps I am different and am not the norm, but I tend to forgive and not dwell on such things. Until tomorrow.
