In today’s scripture reading, Tarshish is like the trade capital of the world! In our world today there are a lot of systems that keep trade going from country to country. The World Trade Center is certainly one that plays a role in the New World Order to govern the trade that goes on between the ten global kingdoms. Then, we all know what happened on September 11, 2001 when the United State’s Trade Center was leveled to the ground by a terrorist attack! The demonic forces of this world will use any means available to undermine independent trade powers.
As Isaiah says through the Holy Spirit, “Pass ye over to Tarshish; howl, ye inhabitants of the isle. Is this your joyous city, whose antiquity is of ancient days? her own feet shall carry her afar off to sojourn.” In the world today, the United States really is like the isle of Chittim, standing and wobbling and fading in the confrontation with a world cleaving to the demonic forces of the modern god of knowledge. “I beheld, and the same horn (the anti-Christ) made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;” Daniel 7:21 The intent of those wicked powers is to center all economic control around one global resource. That resource would be initially through the United Nations, according to the New World Order, then the anti-Christ will come to power to determine economic, trade, and monetary policy based on the 666.
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Accepting what Christ Jesus did for us on the Cross is the only profit available to our spirit and soul. Through Jesus Christ our debt owed to God is paid in full. The Cross of Christ is our Salvation, but making economics, trade, and money our god bankrupts our soul, owing a debt to Hell, the Lake of Fire. Please, believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord.
“Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honorable of the earth?” Daniel answers that question for us in Daniel 4:17; “This matter is by the decree of the Watchers, and the demand by the word of the Holy Ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever he will, and sets up over it the basest of men.” No matter how Godly or invincible we would like to think that America is, the Living God is Holy of holies, King of kings, and Lord of lords! In fact, the Righteous and One True God will make the basest of men ruler of the kingdom of men. As in the days of Noah, so will be the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The world was full of demonic activity, the fallen Watchers had completely destroyed humanity’s relationship with the Living God, and frankly, God would of removed an American President from representing such an evil and godless nation. They didn’t even deserve Noah, and Sodom and Gomorrah didn’t even deserve Lot. The honorable of this earth are but rags and filth compared to the Holiness of God.
“The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof,
the world and all who dwell therein.
For He has founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the waters.
Who may ascend the hill of the LORD?
Who may stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to falsehood,
who does not swear deceitfully.
He shall receive blessing from the LORD,
and vindication from the God of his salvation.
Such is the generation of those who seek Him,
who seek Your face, O God of Jacob.”
The best trade policy ever is trading our sinful nature for the offer that God made to us through the Cross of His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ abides in us to justify our insufficiency in the eyes of God. We are justified by the faith we have in Jesus Christ, to make our sin dormant, inactive, and rendered to do nothing through us. Then the Holy Spirit will abide in us to defeat the spirit of the anti-Christ that is in this world.

Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honourable of the earth?” Isaiah 23:6-8 King James Version (KJV)
