The Prophecy against Tyre

In Ezekiel 26, God declares the coming destruction of Tyre because its king was excessively proud, taking glory away from the only one due it, God, himself.. Initially, Nebuchadnezzar destroys the mainland city of Tyre. However, the king and the people had already moved to an island about half a mile offshore. So, the prophecy of the cities destruction was fulfilled but not completely.

In Ezekiel 26, God declares the coming destruction of Tyre because its king was excessively proud, taking glory away from the only one due it, God, himself. Initially, Nebuchadnezzar destroys the mainland city of Tyre. However, the king and the people had already moved to an island about half a mile offshore. So, the prophecy of the cities destruction was fulfilled but not completely.

The prophecy speaks of the island itself, though, so God’s prophecy must have included the destruction of the island stronghold.

Lo and behold, Alexander the Great comes along around two hundred years later and obliterates the island city.

When God said, “I will make you a bare rock, and you will become a place to spread fishnets,” that’s exactly what happened. It is now an archaeological spot showcasing the ancient city.

There are many, many more prophecies from the Old Testament of the Christian bible that were literally and wholly fulfilled.

Reading God’s Word is an amazing adventure, filling me with awe and surprise at every turn.

When you really consider God’s message as a whole, you have to admit to yourself, this is not something we would make up. This really is inspired. It could have only come from the one, true, living God, the God who is able to deliver you and I from all distress.
