Read Ezekiel 30 today.

This chapter continues the proclamation against Egypt begun in the previous chapter. The judgment against Egypt is strong. Though there will be restoration, Egypt will never again be what it once was.
Again we read the words of the recurring theme of Ezekiel, “they will know that I am the Lord.” Each time I read these, it makes me wonder how God is interpreting the events and decisions of our day. Do our decisions, both personal and cultural, reflect that we know the Lord?
Ezekiel 30:1-5, 19, 25-26 NLT
This is another message that came to me from the LORD: [2] “Son of man, prophesy and give this message from the Sovereign LORD: “Weep and wail for that day, [3] for the terrible day is almost here- the day of the LORD! It is a day of clouds and gloom, a day of despair for the nations. [4] A sword will come against Egypt, and those who are slaughtered will cover the ground. Its wealth will be carried away and its foundations destroyed. The land of Ethiopia will be ravished. [5] Ethiopia, Libya, Lydia, all Arabia,and all their other allies will be destroyed in that war.
[19] And so I will greatly punish Egypt, and they will know that I am the LORD.”
[25] I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, while the arms of Pharaoh fall useless to his sides. And when I put my sword in the hand of Babylon’s king and he brings it against the land of Egypt, Egypt will know that I am the LORD. [26] I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, dispersing them throughout the earth. Then they will know that I am the LORD.”
