Lebanon's Downfall

Lebanon's Downfall

Was Lebanon's Downfall Prophesied?


Ezekiel 26 prophesied Lebanon's imminent downfall. Is that what we see happening today? 


Ezekiel 26:5 'She will be a place for the spreading of nets in the middle of the sea .. and she will become spoils for the nations.' 


This prophecy refers to King Nebuchadnezzar's destruction of Tyre after they celebrated Israel's demise. But prophecies sometimes have dual fulfillments. So could that be what we are seeing today? 


Beirut, once considered the 'Paris of the Middle East,' is now the capital of an Iranian outpost thanks to the takeover of Hezbollah. 


They are facing unprecedented fuel shortages which have shutdown power stations. In 2020, we heard about the "Beirut blast." And we see China targeting the northern port of Tripoli as a key link for the Beijing Belt and Road Initiative. 


Could China's advancement fulfill Ezekiel 26:12? 


Ezekiel 26:12 'they will make a spoil of your riches and a prey of your merchandise, break down your walls and destroy your pleasant houses, and throw your stones and your timbers and your debris into the water


Keep your eyes on Lebanon and familiarize yourself with Ezekiel's prophecy. It will be interesting to see if it has a dual fulfillment.
