8 Tyre – Why so Important?

9 Prophecy in Ezekiel 26 Many nations would come against Tyre (3) The walls of Tyre would be broken down (4) Dust would be scraped from her, and she would be left like a bare rock (4) Tyre would be a place for the spreading of nets (5) Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, would build a siege wall around Tyre (8) Nebuchadnezzar would plunder the city (9-12) The stones, timber and soil of Tyre would be cast into the sea (12) The city would never be rebuilt (14)

10 Prophecy in Ezekiel 26 Nebuchadnezzar took Tyre in 573 B.C. The people of the city fled Tyre to an island ½ mile offshore The island walls were 150 feet high Water depth was about 20 feet … very stormy water

11 Prophecy in Ezekiel 26 Nebuchadnezzar took Tyre in 573 B.C. The people of the city fled Tyre to an island ½ mile offshore The island walls were 150 feet high Water depth was about 20 feet … very stormy water What does this have to do with Alexander the Great?

12 Prophecy in Ezekiel 26 On his way to Egypt … Defeated Sidon and then went to Tyre Tyrians told Alexander their city was at his disposal

13 Prophecy in Ezekiel 26 On his way to Egypt … Defeated Sidon and then went to Tyre Tyrians told Alexander their city was at his disposal … until he asked to make a sacrifice in their temple Alexander decided to attack … but how?

14 Prophecy in Ezekiel 26 On his way to Egypt … Defeated Sidon and then went to Tyre Tyrians told Alexander their city was at his disposal … until he asked to make a sacrifice in their temple Alexander decided to attack … but how? He built a land bridge from the shore to the island … with what materials? He scraped the old city, the timbers, the stones, and the very dust were used to make his land bridge. In the end: 7,000 Tyrians died; 400 Macedonians

15 Prophecy in Ezekiel 26 It took Alexander 7 months in 332 B.C. to complete this Just as Ezekiel said, the city on the mainland has not been rebuilt If one sails by Tyre (island city), you’re likely to see fishing nets drying on its rocky shores

22 SO THEN, TYRE IS GONE RIGHT?

23 What about some other passages? Ezek 29:18; Matt. 15:21; Mark 3:8, 7:24, 7:31; Luke 6:17; Acts 21:3-7

24 Acts 12:20 Herod was having a quarrel with the people of Tyre and Sidon, and they came to him seeking a reconciliation Herod was having a quarrel with the people of Tyre and Sidon, and they came to him seeking a reconciliation.

25 So, what’s up?

26 WHAT WAS IT AND WHAT DID IT BECOME? The issue is History and Sovereignty

27 Some helpful texts... Psalm 22:28 Psalm 33:6-12 Psalm 47:1-9 Psalm 66:7

28 Daniel 2:21 20 Daniel said, 20 Daniel said, “Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him. 21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; 21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men And knowledge to men of understanding. 22 “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; 22 “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.

29 Why Did God Plan History This Way? The answer is that God’s aim in history to stop the mouth of human pride and magnify the greatness of his absolutely free mercy. -John Piper (Sermon: God’s Design for History: The Glory of His Mercy)
