God swore to avenge against Egypt and make it desolate of water and in ruins. We see that it is in ruins and dry. Then, He said, "Then they will know that I am Lord". Yet, most do not or all do know that there. How do I really know this was an act of God or an act of Satan just like Christians perceive other religion's "facts"? If it was God then what did He think when the all knowing God didn't get through to them either. Did He think oh I goofed again? How if He is God and all knowing?

The scripture in Ezekiel 30 is a prophecy of a future event.. From reading your post it seems to me that you are under the impression that it is an event that happened in the ancient past.. I think this is the basis of your misunderstandings..

Idk, seems like people have a lot to do with wars, the dam which will dry out the river for Egypt while providing another place, like anywhere else. So, predictable especially in those places where there's corruption and no heed for others. Perhaps wouldn't have happened without Western parts invading their resources, political system. Where are the Biblical prophesies on how the Western collapses? After all, not all Christians are good Christians. And why not seek vengeance on the rest of Asia, Europe and North/South America for not being Christian?

Hi Laura3, this is what your post reminded me of:
Jeremiah 43:10
And say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will send and take Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will set his throne upon these stones that I have hid; and he shall spread his royal pavilion over them.
See how YHVH calls Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant? He is the King of kings.

Look at this:
Obadiah 1:12 But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.
So the Almighty will use whomever He chooses to accomplish His will. This reminds me of what Paul said, We would do well to remember to take heed, lest we fall.

Isaiah 28:27 For dill is not threshed with a threshing sledge, Nor is the cartwheel driven over cummin; But dill is beaten out with a rod, and cummin with a club. 28Grain for bread is crushed, Indeed, he does not continue to thresh it forever. Because the wheel of his cart and his horses eventually damage it, He does not thresh it longer. 29This also comes from the LORD of hosts, Who has made His counsel wonderful and His wisdom great.…
...this is saying Almighty will use the appropriate means to get us ready. Some are willing, some more stubborn, not wanting to yeild to Him. Seems unfair at times, but the Creator of all is in control, and He is just and merciful.

I do not believe the vengeance will be because they are not Christian.. I believe the vengeance will be because of they have persecuted Christians...

Empires come and empires go. The Imperial Empire that ruled over Egypt the longest was the Ottoman Empire centered on today's modern state of Turkey. The Ottoman Empire was an islamic Turkish empire.. Egypt as far as modern resources go has none. The British empire that ruled Egypt for only one generation did so because of the Suez Canal which was of value to them for shipping.. The British empire's interest in Egypt was apart from that one asset virtually none existent..

The Book of Revelations speaks of many great disasters that will befall the earth in the last days.. So the entire earth will suffer great calamities in the end times.. So Europe will be affected just as the rest of the world in those times..
