In these passages, Isaiah prophesies God’s future judgment upon both Egypt and Assyria during the end times or the ‘great tribulation. Both will be utterly destroyed; but a remnant will survive, a remnant that is faithful to God. Isaiah says that a pillar to God will be erected in Egypt and a road will be constructed that connects Egypt and Assyria. Israel will be allied with both Egypt and Assyria. God said to Isaiah, “Blessed is Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands and Israel my inheritance.
Assyria today is a modern-day Iraq, Iran, Turkey, and Syria. All are descendants of Abraham. Israel descended from Abraham’s son Isaac. Assyria descended in large part from Abraham’s son Ishmael, whose mother was an Egyptian slave. It appears that the Millennial Kingdom will be ruled by Jesus from the countries that are descended from Abraham. Israel, Egypt, Syria, Turkey, and Iran will be all Allied and unified during that time. War will be removed, and all people will live in peace. Jesus will teach the masses how to live and conduct their affairs. Satan will not be allowed to influence the masses. However, the Bible indicates there will still be some who are not faithful to God. The Bible says that these will be weeded out at the end of the 1000 years.
