The beliefs of the King of Tyre are akin to Satan’s. Indeed, Ezekiel is talking more to Satan than to the King in verses 11- 19. Satan, the deceiver then, is the deceiver of world leaders and powers still. He is Christ’s vanquished foe!
“Then they will know that I am the LORD.”
“Then they will know that I am the Lord GOD.”
“Then they will know that I am the LORD Their God.”
Within a few verses God layers over His intent three times with these words.
What is God’s intent?
THAT HIS PEOPLE KNOW HIM!
He calls us as He called Israel out of the darkness of unbelief and idolatry, out of sin and evil, into the light of His face.
We are called, set apart, made new – And we can KNOW God, the Lord of Lords, King of Kings.
This is a wonderful truth, a lasting hope and assurance. To know the Creator, the sustainer, the life-giver.
* Father God,
Thank You that through Your work as Father, Son and Spirit – We can know You!
Praise Your Name, Hallelujah!
What a Saviour You are!
