231 - The overthrow of Tyre

Kathleen's thoughts

Jeremiah 34: 12-22
Ezekiel 19: 1-16, 26: 1-21, 27: 1-25

Dishonourable treatment punished. The people first obeyed God by letting go their slaves in the 7th year then they retracted and sinned against God and because of their dishonour towards God He punished them by using the Babylonians to take them hostage to Babylon.

Prophesy against Egypt Then the Lord said...turn your face toward Pharaoh king of Egypt and prophesy against him and against all of Egypt.
When Israel grasped you by the hand you splintered, tearing all their shoulders; when they leaned on you you shattered and made all their hips unsteady and because of this I Will leave you in the desert, you and all the fish of your streams. You will fall on the open ground and will not be taken away or gathered for burial I have given you to the beasts of the earth and the birds of the sky as food.

The desolation of Egypt This part I found interesting about Egypt! The land of Egypt will be a dissolute ruin It will be uninhabited for 40 years I will disperse the Egyptians  among the nations and scatter them across the countries and at the end of 40 years I will gather the Egyptians from the nations where they were dispersed and restore their fortunes of Egypt and bring them  them back to the land of Pathros and land of their origin. There they will be a lowly kingdom. Egypt will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself over the nations. I will make them so small they cannot rule over the nations. It will never again be an object of trust for the house of Israel. drawing attention to their sin of turning to the Egyptians. Then they will know that I am the Lord God.

Tyre rejoicing
Tyre's enemy
Tyre's attacker
Tyre's destruction
A terrifying example
Tyre's funeral song.

How you have perished, city of renown, you who were populated from the seas! She who was powerful on the sea, she and all of her inhabitants inflicted their terror. Now the coast lands tremble on the day of your downfall; the islands in the sea are alarmed by your demise.

And so Tyre... I will make you an object of horror, and you will no longer exist. You will be sought but will never be found again. This is the declaration of the Lord.
Therefore whoever thinks he stands must be careful not to fall. 1 Cor. 10: 12
