Ezekiel Chapter 28
verse 1 -10
The Lord told Ezekiel to tell the ruler of Tyre that his pride in his heart made him think that he was god in the heart of the seas. but he was only man not god. Even though he thought he was as wise as god. The Lord asked Are you wiser than Daniel? Are secrets hidden from you?
Through wisdom and understanding you gained wealth for yourself and gold and silver in your treasures, by your trading skills you increased your wealth and because of your wealth you have grown proud.
Ezekiel tells the ruler of Tyre the sovereign Lord says because you think you are wise as god. I am going to bring foreigners against you, the most ruthless of the nations, they will draw their swords against you. You will die a violent death in the heart of the seas. Will you then say you are god, in the hands of the ones who slay you.
When dealing with success we have to be as humble as we can be. acknowledge that the Lord is the reason for all that we have. we can not feel as if we are zero no higher, that we are untouchable. when we act as if we are god due to our success the fall is hard. It ‘s a trip with a belly flop to the ground at the end. In every successful action don’t forget to give God the Glory and thanksgiving for his favor and presence over your life.
verse 11 – 19
The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel and he says the sovereign Lord you were perfect and beautiful, you were in Eden and all stones adorn you, you were a guardian cherub. you were blameless till wickedness was found in you. it spread and you were filled with violence and you sinned.
The Lord says i drove you out and expelled you. your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. I throw you to the earth and I made a spectacle of you before kings. You have come to a horrible end and will be no more.
That’s exactly how we need to look at it, when you do something wrong you are risking your place in Eden think back to Adam and eve, when we think we know more than God then it’s time to go.
Prophecy against Sidon
The Lord says to Ezekiel to prophecy against Sidon and tell them that the Lord says he is against them, and he will gain glory with in her. When he inflicts punishment on her and shows himself holy within her, with the sword on every side then they will know that he is Lord. No longer will the people of Israel have malicious neighbors. Then they will know that he is Lord.
The Lord says when he gathers the people of Israel up he will show himself Holy. then they will live in the land that he gave his servant Jacob. They will live there in safety, when he rids them of the neighbors who tried to get them to do evil, then they will know he is Lord.
As any father the Lord has always rid his children from people who would try to malice (entice with evil) them. Have you ever been in a position where you had a friend that always tried to get you in trouble, and the Lord would rid them from your life. It’s important that we don’t allow them back in. Even now the father is concerned about making sure you receive the blessings he prepared for you. Glory to God.
Now for the important part. If you are looking for salvation. Google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible toi Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. read the word daily and spend time in his presence, he’s waiting on you.
