The Suez Canal is blocked by a cargo ship.

There’s been a giant cargo ship blocking Egypt’s Suez Canal. God is speaking…
There is so much prophetic in this! The Suez Canal is where the Israelites crossed the Red Sea (Reed Sea), between the Bitter Lakes and the Gulf of Suez (Ex. 14:5-14; Ex.14:15-31). It sounds like God is blocking things or about to block things for ‘Egypt’ or those that continue to walk in the ways of Egypt. This is also a warning to those that continue in the ways of Egypt, which God is calling you out of.
3 You shall not do as they do in the land of Egypt, where you lived, and you shall not do as they do in the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you. You shall not walk in their statutes.
Could this be a message of what’s to come? Is the Lord about to block the armies coming between His people and those that walk in the ways of Egypt? The deliverance IS coming.
19 Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, 20 coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel. Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long.
The name of the ship is known as ‘Ever Given.’ There are only a couple of Bible verses that has said this term ‘ever given’ (also referenced as first given or began). The two scriptures are about the same thing that God is bringing up:
12 “Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place,
This scripture above was God challenging Job. This was AFTER Job was in the whirlwind, in other words, when God set him straight among all the voices of confusion around him. Wisdom spoke.
The other scripture says:
35 “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?”
Could this be a coincidence? No! God is saying to man, “WHO GIVES THE ORDERS OF ALL THINGS? AND WHO CAN GIVE FIRST TO GOD IN ORDER TO PAY HIM BACK? Everything under the sun is Mine.”
God is warning man in this incident, and He’s not budging in this hour about His point. He WILL make this clear in the days ahead. God has made man have to take the long way around. In the desert, God made the Israelites take the long way around as well (Ex. 13:17-18). The change is difficult for man to embrace. And in this process, it will cost them.
It goes onto to say in the article, “the suspension of NAVIGATION through the Suez Canal has created an atmosphere of uncertainty.” The Lord is showing when God throws off man’s plans, IT WILL give a sense of uncertainty. This is where faith comes in, IF you have it. God does not bring uncertainty when He is truly leading you. The trust must be worked through rightly by Him.
It also said this in the article, “We might have to work with a combination of reducing the weight by removing containers, oil and water from the ship, tug boats and dredging of sand.” This sounds like the story of Jonah (Jonah 1:5). Could this be the sign of Jonah that’s coming ahead?
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees told Jesus, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from you.”
39 But he replied to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves a sign. Yet no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah,
Lastly, the company that operates the ship…it’s name is Evergreen. The evergreen is usually symbolic of ‘everlasting life.’ They’re also associated with these words: continuous, durable, new, perpetual. God IS in this. He is doing something and showing something. These words are very telling as to what He is saying now…
Continuous-John 4:14 But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.”
Durable- Ps. 92:12 The righteous will flourish like the date palm [long-lived, upright and useful];They will grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic and stable].
New- 2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
Perpetual- Ps. 136
Hear what the Spirit is saying…
