In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Ezekiel 29-32… we see a continuation of God’s words concerning the nations surrounding Judah. Especially Egypt. Egypt was who God’s people trusted instead of trusting in Him.
Ezekiel shared God’s judgment on Egypt through 4 word-pictures:
1) Capturing a Monster (ch.29)
2) Breaking Arms (ch.30)
3) Cutting Down a Large Tree (ch.31)
4) Trapping Animals (ch.32)
We should all remember God is King… and rules the nations as He pleases. And He rules the nations with one grand purpose – that the nations may know He is the Lord.
When nations and rulers start to think they are gods, God has to remind them God – and God alone – is Lord over all the earth.
