The king of Tyre thought he was hot stuff. When Judah smashed by the Babylonians, the way was clear for Tyre to grow even more reach and powerful than it was already. But hear what God said to him, through the prophet Ezekiel:
Will thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. –Ezekiel 28:9
In every age there’s a fool, or a nation of fools, or a whole international fraternity of fools aspiring to rule the world. True to God’s word, the Babylonians came and conquered Tyre, and killed the king. By and by, Alexander the Great totally destroyed it. (The Tyre on the map today is not on the site of the original. It is Tyre 2.0.)
Today we don’t have to get by with one measly king of Tyre. We’ve got politicians, political parties, Big Tech oligarchs, brain-deprived celebrities, academics and other “educational” parasites… all in bed together, all determined to control our lives–for our own good, of course!–and to see just how rich and fat they can get before they explode.
What will these say to the man who comes along and cuts them down? What will they say to the God that judges them?
Listen to their speeches; read their stupid manifestos. They are every bit as self-deluded as the king of Tyre. “Using technology wisely–” as if they knew how to do anything wisely!–“we can direct the course of human evolution,” blah-blah-blah. Ain’t no god, they say, but you’ve got as good as–us! We can be your gods!
I’m pretty sure this is how you get erased from history.
