Is Isa. 19.2 what is going on today in Egypt or has the prophecy in that verse been fulfilled already?
ESV - 2 And I will stir up Egyptians against Egyptians, and they will fight, each against another and each against his neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom.

The problems in the middle East have been going on for sense time began, and I really doubt that man will ever be able to stop it. It is of Gods making, and only God has the power to stop it . It's all part of his punishment ( Divine Correction ) on the people that rejected him .
The passage says that it is an "oracle". That word can mean a literal weight or message. So, there is the possibility that this passage is placing a heavy burden or sense of responsibility on the messenger. The reason could be that (Chapter 6:9-10) God has sent Isaiah to harden the hearts of Israel. They had become rebellious acting just like the rest of the world in their faithlessness and pride. They didn't know God any better than the pagans did. We see that God is passing judgement on Israel in these chapters and Isaiah is responsible to tell them. We have to remember that God will always admonish His children. True Israel are those children of the Promise (Romans 9; Ephesians 2). So, we know that every Christian is True Israel and we exist all over the world today. We also know that we shall always be troubled by the world and even admonished by God until the great day of Jesus' return. Meanwhile, spiritual and physical wars will rage on to the surprise of those who won't read a Bible and to those of us who don't read it correctly. 1 Peter 4:12 "Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you." I don't see the events in Egypt as any special sign of the end but I'm positive the end will come someday. It seems every outbreak in the Middle East stirs up the latest "countdown" to Jesus returning. The only benefit is that it may stir up a few people to read their Bible and repent. Perhaps, that is why God does this over and over again! There are still a few people out there He intends to regenerate and glorify.
