5 As at
the report [shema`] concerning Egypt [Mitsrayim],
so shall they be sorely pained [chuwl] at the
report [shema`] of Tyre [Tsor]. KJV-Interlinear
5 When the report comes to Egypt, they will be in anguish over the
report about Tyre. ESV
In chapter 19, we studied the prophecy concerning Egypt and the many calamities that were going to fall on that region. Remember, all of these prophecies are referring to the final days of history and therefore they are interconnected.
They are not independent of each other.
Now, since this verse refers to the calamities of Egypt, and then the calamities concerning Tyre, then it is reasonable to presume that this is the chronological order in which they will occur.
During the Tribulation, everything is not going to collapse simultaneously. There is going to be a logical order to the collapse, and these two prophecies are interconnected in that Egypt will suffer major problems that will leave the world in dismay, and then Tyre will subsequently suffer hardships.
And we know that these geographical regions are symbolic of the economies of the world, their resources and the causes pertaining to their prosperity and to their calamity.
So, given that sequence, after studying chapter 19, which you can review anytime online, then we know that the natural flow of the weather, its impact on the region and on its economy, the loss of resources, increased unemployment, decline is business and so forth, will all be beyond the control of people.
No one can control the weather. No one can control the harvest. No one can control the economy. No one can control employment.
And therefore, the point is, that God controls all, and when God is rejected, then the benefit of that control is lost.
Simply said, if you reject Gods help then He does not give it.
Then, you have to realize on your own that without God, you are really helpless. And unfortunately, too many people have to take the hard road before they realize the obvious.
