Isaiah 19: 16-25 Egypt will worship the Lord. ..23On that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. Assyria will go to Egypt, Egypt to Assyria, and Egypt will worship with Assyria....24 On that day Israel will form a triple alliance with Egypt and Assyria - a blessing within the land...15.

The Lord... is coming... to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with His faithfulness. Psalm 96: 13
The reading today of God's judgement against the nations is all because they preferred to do things their way and worship idols God wants us to walk in His statues so that it will go well with us and generations onwards. His word is there for a purpose. You can have a Bible well read, go to church on Sundays but not walk in the word you have nothing. The aim of God's word is to obey it let it be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path and let the meditation of your heart be acceptable to the Lord and let everything that has breath continually praise the Lord and give Him all the Glory.
