Q. Thanks for your insight. You have really clarified for me these difficult-to-understand times. I tried to map out the upcoming battles in the middle east & was wondering about Egypt & Iraq. Are either of these countries under prophecy to attack Israel in Psalm 83 or Ezekiel 38-39? I can’t seem to figure out where they fall into the picture.
A. Neither Egypt nor Iraq is involved in Ezekiel 38 or Psalm 83. This is one of the reasons these battles can’t be part of the Armageddon Scenario, when the Lord will gather all the nations against Jerusalem (Zech. 14:2). Iraq (Babylon) will figure prominently in the End Times (Rev. 17-18) and Egypt is the King of the South in Daniel 11:40-43.
