Ezekiel 27

Ezekiel 27:33-34 “When your wares came from the seas, you satisfied many peoples; with your abundant wealth and merchandise you enriched the kings of the earth. Now you are wrecked by the seas, in the depths of the waters; your merchandise and all your crew in your midst have sunk with you.” Brethren , Tyre was a coastal nation that was an economic gold mine for it’s neighboring nations. Everyone would come to Tyre to trade, resulting in economic success. But with economic success come idolatry, and though God does not mention much of His reasoning, Tyre is condemned to fall most likely because they beheld their riches over He that gave them. The downfall of Tyre should constantly remind us that it is God who receives all the glory and not an ounce of ourselves. This also shows us that people will only desire us for how we can benefit them. See how the nations lament over Tyre, but it seems to be more of an economic loss expressed through bitterness. Understand that people as selfish self-gratifying sinners who have not been redeemed by Christ will primarily seek you for how you can benefit them. Therefore, protect yourself, and live or God, and not for their sake. People are ever-changing while God remains immutable (unchanging). God bless you!
