Few times I’ve pondered over this scripture passage
Isaiah 19 : 23 In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. 24In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. 25The Lord Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.”
I was wondering if a new forthcoming Kurdish state could be whats called Assyria in the bible. It’s interesting that Kurdish people seem to have a good relationship with Israel. I’ve met one Kurdish guy in the UK who found Christ. I don’t expect this to be an easy to make another new nation in the always turbulent middle east, but I would welcome a new nation for the Kurdish people.
This article I read today from Charisma magazine has some similar thinking. I think this is well worth a read if you are interested in end times and middle east peace from a sensible non-hysteria point of view.
A few years ago I wrote about another aspect of Isaiah 19 regarding the 1973 Yom Kippur here.
