Egypt’s 40 Year Judgment

Q. Regarding a recent post about Egypt and Ez. 29, I’ve wondered if it may be fulfilled during the period of rebellion towards the end of the thousand year reign of Christ…what are your thoughts on this?

A. In Ezekiel 29:13-16 it says that at the end of the 40 year desolation, the Lord will bring the Egyptians back to their homeland. After that they will always be a lowly kingdom and will never again try to exalt themselves over other kingdoms. When I compare this with Zechariah 14:16-19 I’m more inclined to place Egypt’s judgment nearer the beginning of the Millennium. But there doesn’t appear to be any clear indication of timing, meaning it could theoretically happen any time during the Millennium that would allow for a re-gathering and a period of peace afterward. We’ll just have to wait and see.
