“In the twelfth year, on the first day of the twelfth month, God’s Message came to Ezekiel saying, “Son of Man, sing a funeral lament over Pharaoh king of Egypt.
Tell him: “‘You think you’re a young lion prowling through the nations. You’re more like a dragon in the ocean, snorting and thrashing about……”
I believe that God was comparing Pharaoh to the crocodile: the dragon!
Pharaoh’s heart was hard, callous and stubborn. He thought in his own mind he was a god and he did not have to pay homage to another God!
We may not know it or understand it, but when we continue to reject God, we place ourselves in an elevated state that we are above the universe and we don’t have to hear anyone else but self!
Satan exalted himself over God! He was like Pharaoh he was ambitious and full of covetousness for a throne that was not his! So, he conspired to take it over and as a result he was dethroned and kicked out of hell like a bowl of lightening!
Ezekiel prophesied that God, the Master, said to Pharaoh:
“‘I’m going to throw my net over you — many nations will get in on this operation — and haul you out with my dragnet.
I’ll dump you on the ground out in an open field and bring in all the crows and vultures for a sumptuous carrion lunch.
I’ll invite wild animals from all over the world to gorge on your guts. I’ll scatter hunks of your meat in the mountains and strew your bones in the valleys. The country, right up to the mountains, will be drenched with your blood, your blood filling every ditch and channel.
When I blot you out, I’ll pull the curtain on the skies and shut out the stars. I’ll throw a cloud across the sun and turn off the moonlight. I’ll turn out every light in the sky above you and put your land in the dark.
Decree of God, the Master. I’ll shake up everyone worldwide when I take you off captive to strange and far-off countries. I’ll shock people with you. Kings will take one look and shudder. I’ll shake my sword and they’ll shake in their boots. On the day you crash, they’ll tremble, thinking, “That could be me!”
“‘God, the Master, says: “‘The sword of the king of Babylon is coming against you. I’ll use the swords of champions to lay your pride low, Use the most brutal of nations to knock Egypt off her high horse, to puncture that hot-air pomposity.
I’ll destroy all their livestock that graze along the river. Neither human foot nor animal hoof will muddy those waters anymore. I’ll clear their springs and streams, make their rivers flow clean and smooth,” (Ezekiel 32:1-15, MSG).
“For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted,” Luke 14:11.
“Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall,” Proverbs 16:18.
People, I would far rather for God to elevate me than for men to do it!
God is calling for a Spirit of Humility in this season, so many people are climbing for the high seat.
But if God places you there, you won’t have to worry you will remain there; unlike Pharaoh who took advantage of the people, using them for cheap labor!
