22 And the
LORD [Yahovah] shall smite [nagaph] Egypt [Mitsrayim]: he shall smite [nagaph]
and heal [rapha'] it: and they shall return [shuwb] even to the LORD [Yahovah],
and he shall be intreated [`athar] of them, and
shall heal [rapha'] them. KJV-Interlinear
22 And the
Lord will strike Egypt, striking but healing; so they will return to the Lord,
and He will respond to them and will heal them. NASB
As described in the opening verses of this chapter, Egypt is going to be hammered with Gods judgment against them because of their rejection of truth and of their inclination for evil.
But during the course of those judgments, there will rise up a remnant of people who will repent to the Lord, and not only repent but will dedicate their lives to Christ, to doctrine, and they will not cower to public or political or peer pressure or intimidation.
And after the judgments have run their course, which is to say, after the Second Advent, then Egypt will be healed. It will be restored in the Millennium, to a prominence that will be far greater than at any other time in its entire history, even greater than when it was at its peak in the very earliest of ancient times.
After rising to the heights of evil, Egypt will be smashed into virtually nothing, as described in the opening verses.
Then, Christ, will restore it, as He will the entire world, to position that will be greater than ever before, even greater than the Garden of Eden.
The Garden only housed two people, and for a very short time.
In the Millennium, the entire world will be turned into a garden and eventually billions of people will be living and thriving and prospering, with not so much as a strain on the worlds resources.
After all, Jesus Christ is there great, ‘I Am,’ the eternal provider of eternal resources.
