Question? Will the Nation of Egypt have a part in the endtimes?
Answer: Yes it will
The Bible records in the Old Testament that there will be three nations that WILL HAVE a part in the Millennial (1,000 year) reign of Christ here on earth.
(Isaiah 19:23) In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyp an into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. (24) In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: (25) Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.
The Lord makes it perfectly clear to mankind that He writes the History before it ever comes to pass, and it is contained in His Word, the Bible.
(Isaiah 48:3 – 7) I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass. (4) Because I knew that thou art obstinate, and thy neck is an iron sinew, and thy brow brass; (5) I have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee: lest thou shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them. (6) Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them. (7) They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.
The Three Nations are:
God had never forgotten what Egypt did in blessing Israel. Yes, they persecuted Israel for 400 years; BUT, they kept God’s people alive! Notice how Israel came out from Egypt, as revealed in –
(Exodus 12:31 – 35) And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.
(32) Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also. (33) And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men. (34) And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders. (35) And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment.
In Verse 35, the word “borrowed” should have been translated “ASK.” In Verse 36, “lent” is the same Hebrew word as “borrowed.” The Hebrew is “shael,” a prime root which is used according to the context; therefore, “lent” should be translated “gave.” Psalm 105:37 adds that…
He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
when they left Egypt. Egypt provided refuge for Jesus when, as a child, Herod wanted to kill him.
(Matthew 2:13 -15) And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. (14) When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: (15) And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
Old Assyria was composed of Iraq and Syria. In 721 B.C., Assyria captured Samaria, and took the ten northern tribes of Israel into captivity. Sargon II took the best and most prosperous into exile and treated them kindly. They had homes, businesses, trades, and lived a very good life. These were replaced in Israel by colonists from the provinces; which, also, lived a very good life.
Assyria was known as being ruthless and extremely cruel to their enemies when captured. For whatever reason, it was not so with Israel. This is only a guess; but, maybe Assyria thought that, should they ever be attacked by one of their enemies, the Jews would aid in their defense in return for the kindness they had received.
God has never forgotten how Assyria treated Israel while in captivity for approximately 100 years. Assyria kept them alive and treated them well. They will be known as “Assyria” and reign with Christ during His earthly kingdom. There will be a highway between Assyria and Egypt that will be heavily traveled. All families will be required to go up to Jerusalem once a year to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
(Zechariah 14:16) And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
And of Course
– The Nation of Israel
One thing to remember is that… God always keeps His promises.
(Genesis 12:3) And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Israel, Egypt, and Assyria, will worship together at this great feast – (Zechariah 14:16) of our Wonderful Sav-ior, the Lord Jesus Christ. There will be love, instead of hate; and peace, instead of war!
(Isaiah 19:23) In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
Note: “That day” is the Kingdom Reign of Christ.
Also remember, Assyria was made up of Iraq and Syria. Whether they unite politically as one before the Rapture; or, in the Tribulation Period, no one knows. But, in the Millennium, they will be known as Assyria.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
