    25-26 This is now-This is a prophecy for today. God is about to give Israel part of the land back that he gave to Abraham. [ PSALMS 83] is the prophecy that tells all about it...
  • Obbie Beal
    it is a truth (see the above): 'riches' and 'pride' or a combination of the 2 can not be mastered by any human (see the above). WOW! WOW! WOW!
  • Obbie Beal
    Tyrus appears almost identical to the beautiful whore (ridding the beast) found in the book of Revelation.. especially after considering the reason God's wrath is applied to each of them. 2018 may 'get-by' for a second (because of God's Mercy) but 2018 will not get-away. Wow! Wow! Wow!
  • Vincent F ORourke
    Verse 12 to end of Chapter is an indictment from God to/against the Evil Priest, Melchiresha, and all those involved in the Priests' efforts to overthrow God's kingdom. The ultimate penalty is he shall be put to death as a man.
  • Obbie Beal
    GOD's warning to all those that cross the line GOD warned us not to cross. Once anyone cross that line we are lifted up with a 'distructive-pride'; This 'pride' caused Tyrus, and ..., and ..., to receive GOD's warth... In 2017 the nations have cross that line, therefore we / the nations shall not excape GOD's warth... Thank GOD for the Blood of Jesus Christ that save, protect, keep. WOW, WOW, WOW!
