"In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The Lord Almighty will bless them, saying, 'Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance'" (Isaiah 19:24-25 NIV).
Biblical prophecy is weird. As a pastor, I probably shouldn't be calling a third of the Bible weird, but I also think it's important to keep in mind when reading prophecy that we're reading something unusual. The words "prophesy" and "predict" have come to be synonymous in modern English, but prediction was only an incidental role for a biblical prophet....
