These Nations Will One Day Be at Peace with Each Other: Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Syria, Iran, and Iraq— Isaiah 19:23-25

Yes, these nations–Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Syria, Iran, and Iraq–will one day live in peace and worship together in peace—in the new millennial kingdom.

Isaiah 19:23-25
In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrians will come into Egypt and the Egyptians into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians.
24 In that day Israel will be the third party with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth, 25 whom the Lord of hosts has blessed, saying, “Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.

 

The highway referred to here could be a literal road connecting Egypt to Assyria (now Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran); and it would go through Israel. This is a highway of peace, which Israel will build between warring nations.

MacArthur comments from his The MacArthur Study Bible:

The two great warring nations of Isaiah’s time are to reach a lasting peace with each other during “that day” of Christ’s reign (27:13)… Israel “in that day” will become what God intended her to be—a blessing to the rest of the world (Gen 12:3; 42:6)… In the future kingdom, Israel is to be God’s instrument for drawing other nations into His fold.

 

What a wonderful day that will be!
