17 And it
shall come to pass after the end [qets] of seventy [shib`iym] years [shaneh], that the
LORD [Yahovah] will visit [paqad] Tyre [Tsor], and she shall
turn [shuwb] to her hire ['ethnan], and shall commit fornication [zanah] with all the kingdoms [mamlakah] of the world ['erets] upon
the face [paniym] of the earth ['adamah]. KJV-Interlinear
17 At the end of seventy years, the LORD will visit Tyre, and she
will return to her wages and will prostitute herself with all the kingdoms of
the world on the face of the earth. ESV
We have already studied the meaning of the seventy year period. For it is both an actual seventy year period which occurred in the distant past between the Babylonian and Persian empires, as well as a symbolic period of a single but completed reign pointing toward the reign of the anti-christ who will rule in the future during the seven year Tribulation.
The principle being made here, is that despite its old ways which are being compared to that of the prostitute who earns her pay through interactions with anyone, so too, Tyre earned her pay through trading with anyone whether legal or not. And as a result of her improprieties, so to speak, Tyre was destroyed.
Gods brings destruction, but God also brings recovery.
The Tyre of the past, did not learn from its destruction. People of the past, or of any generation for that matter, did not and do not learn from their past.
Tyre will return to its former ways and will be destroyed again and again as history repeats itself from generation to generation.
When it is finally destroyed again in the Tribulation, it will be recovered, not as Tyre, but as the economy of the Millennium, as people who remain alive at the second advent will begin a new race of humanity during the Millennium, which will last for 1000 years, but in the end, the people will turn away again from Christ despite his actual presence here on the earth.
Not having learned from history, that last and final economy will be destroyed as the whole old universe is destroyed and will be replaced with whatever God has in mind for the new universe. This time it will last forever.
Despite what anyone thinks, all of history is courtesy of Jesus Christ. All economics are courtesy of Jesus Christ. All life is courtesy of Jesus Christ.
There is no such thing as a self-made person.
Everything that exists today was built upon the events of the past, all of which God designed and coordinated through His divine plan.
Only man takes those blessings and turns them into evil ways, which from time to time, need to be corrected through judgments of one sort or another, lest mans genius would have led to his total destruction long ago.
