Ezekiel 27:36 The merchants among the people shall hiss at thee; thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt be any more.
If someone was to tell you someday the city of New York would one day be no more, you might find that hard to believe. If they said, Real Estate there would be worth less than one dollar per square mile you would probably laugh. You cannot buy a speck on the sidewalks of New York today for a dollar, much less a square mile. It would be hard to imagine because New York today is such a busy place. This city is a financial metropolitan, and the hub of great wealth all around the world. Globally people look in awe of New York and the stock markets there as world trading goes through the city and touches every continent on the planet. However, if God said it would be destroyed… it would be destroyed.
Today’s verse was talking about a city called Tyrus or often referred to as Tyre. As New York is, so was Tyrus. It was the metropolis of that time. It seemed everything came into and flowed out of Tyrus. It was the greatest seaport around. It was thought of as way too secure in itself for anything or anyone ever to take it down. The city off the shore with a causeway from the mainland seemed untouchable. However, God said there would be a time when it would not only be destroyed, but uninhabited and fishermen would cast their nets there. Guess what, that is exactly what they do there today. Nothing has ever been rebuilt there. It is worthless property. No one wants it. Why, it is that way today because God said it would be so many years ago.
No matter what seems impossible for God, never doubt Him. He is always right. ALWAYS. If you doubt that He can save you from your particular sins, you are wrong. He says He can. If you doubt that He can get you through your struggles today you are wrong, He says He can. Trust in Him with all your heart. He is never wrong. NEVER! God can do anything but fail.
