Ambassadors in Reed Boats

1) Introducing the 'Land shadowing with wings'

Isaiah contains some very specific prophecies about such places as Babylon and Tyre which have been fulfilled in detail. The cities and nations are addressed by name. One notable exception is

Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Cush: (Isaiah 18:1)

The 'land shadowing with wings' is not named like others. It is a description. Why doesn't Isaiah name them? Who is that land?

Even more intriguing they,

send out on the sea ambassadors and on reed boats on the face of the sea (Isaiah 18:2)

We will show that this short prophecy in Isaiah began to be fulfilled with a land not known of in the time of Isaiah, with that land's establishment of the League of Nations, and the British Mandate of 1922 and the subsequent United Nations. It is a prophecy of “woe”. Since 1969 there can be certainty as to who was meant, because the impossible happened; for the first time in over 2,000 years ambassadors went out in a reed boat. They did it again in 1970. And then they went forth again in 1978. These voyages illustrated Isaiah's prophecy.
