Things to consider when reading the bible;
- Is there a command to obey?
- Is there an example to follow?
- Is there a promise to claim?
- Is there a sin to avoid?
- Is there a principle to follow?
Thoughts to consider
- Chapter 28 continues into a third chapter of judgement against Tyre, this time it focuses on the king and specifically His pride. God is opposed to pride, so if you have any within you, bring it to God and ask for His forgiveness.
- There are similarities in this chapter to the fall of Satan, it is not exactly clear what the connection is, but the prophecy could well be addressing the ruling spirit that is guiding the king of Tyre, much like some of the judgements of Revelation and other places.
- We’ve already seen 3 chapters of judgements against Tyre and now we have even more against Egypt. Chapters 29 to 31 start the judgement and it continues tomorrow.
- These judgements start against the king of Egypt in much the same way as against the king of Tyre. The Pharaoh is proud and he thinks he is a god, big mistake. The God of heaven does not share His glory with another!
- If you remember when we were reading Isaiah, the remnant in Jerusalem moved to Egypt, against God’s commands, thinking they were going to be safe. Again, a big mistake. God is working His purposes out and He uses whoever He wants to achieve them.
