Global Conflict over Wealth

Ezekiel 26

Global Conflict Over World Resources
International Community Comes Against Independently Wealth Nation
Economic Collapse of Independent Wealth
Horrible End

When there is a tightly woven global economy, there is no room for independent countries to prosper economically. The image portrayed is that international economics is to bring prosperity to all nations. Supposedly, that ensures that citizens in every city around the world has their needs met, and drastically reduces the likely hood of war. The common element uniting today’s global economy is the internal government of the mark of the beast. It all goes wrong when an independent country invades another country to prosper themselves and to increase their own influence. That amounts to rebellion against the global system of economic interdependence. Allied military forces come against the independent countries seeking to enrich themselves. There is no economic prosperity outside of the international community of global leaders. This is what Ezekiel is talking about here in chapter 26.

Global Conflict Over World Resources
The one statement that explains where the independently wealthy nation went wrong is, “Aha, the gate to the nations is broken, and its doors have swung open to me; now that she lies in ruins I will prosper.” verses three and four. Its conquest is based on taking advantage of a weakness allowing it to seize the wealth of another nation. God said, “No!” God Himself said that He would bring many nations against the independently wealthy nation and totally destroy it. The reason God does that is because the wealthy nation is taking advantage of His people. For example, a Godly nation is based on the Word of God and lives by the message of the Cross of Jesus Christ is now destroyed. Their culture based on the foundation of God’s Word is now laying in ruins. In that depravity, the wealthy nation thinks that it can move in and take over its economic wealth. God says, “No!” God’s wrath brings global conflict over the economic resources of the world.

“…therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Tyre, and I will bring many nations against you, like the sea casting up its waves. They will destroy the walls of Tyre and pull down her towers; I will scrape away her rubble and make her a bare rock.” Ezekiel 26:3-4

International Community Comes Against Independently Wealth Nation
God is bringing the international community, that governs by the mark of the beast, against the independently wealthy nation. The united military power of the global alliance will come against the wealthy nation with a great army. The nation will be totally ravaged by an overwhelming show of power. In fact, there won’t be any noisy music nor sweet music heard after that. The global power and the wealthy nation have both discarded the Gospel of Jesus Christ. One governs by the internal government of the “united” world, and the other governs by the power of its independent wealth. The global government overwhelmingly wins the battle leaving the wealthy nation in total ruins.

“His horses will be so many that they will cover you with dust. Your walls will tremble at the noise of the warhorses, wagons and chariots when he enters your gates as men enter a city whose walls have been broken through. The hooves of his horses will trample all your streets; he will kill your people with the sword, and your strong pillars will fall to the ground. They will plunder your wealth and loot your merchandise; they will break down your walls and demolish your fine houses and throw your stones, timber and rubble into the sea. Ezekiel 26:10-12

Economic Collapse of Independent Wealth
The independently wealthy nation had a lot of other nations depending on its prosperity. Mostly because the wealthy nation had excellent trade routes. They were able to supply other nations with all the resources they needed plus enable them to prosper economically. The only problem, they do this under the noses of a global power that demands economic interconnectivity. Those connections are based on the internal government of the mark of the beast, not independent wealth. The international community comes against that economic powerhouse and totally destroys its ability to trade. Subsequently, it causes a total economic collapse of all the other countries that depends on it. It is also this present day global economic system that will collapse just before the coming of Jesus Christ.

“Then they will take up a lament concerning you and say to you: “‘How you are destroyed, city of renown, peopled by men of the sea! You were a power on the seas, you and your citizens; you put your terror on all who lived there. Now the coastlands tremble on the day of your fall; the islands in the sea are terrified at your collapse.’” Ezekiel 26:17-18

Horrible End
“This is what the Sovereign Lord says: When I make you a desolate city, like cities no longer inhabited, and when I bring the ocean depths over you and its vast waters cover you, then I will bring you down with those who go down to the pit, to the people of long ago. I will make you dwell in the earth below, as in ancient ruins, with those who go down to the pit, and you will not return or take your place in the land of the living. I will bring you to a horrible end and you will be no more. You will be sought, but you will never again be found, declares the Sovereign Lord.” Ezekiel 26:19-21
