Tarshish is known for their ships bringing imports and exports from wealthy countries and into other countries. But, if there are no free-trade routes and no cities to pull their ships into, then their import and export business is over. Under the global economy of the New World Order, which eventually becomes the domain of the anti-Christ, there will be no free-trade routes. The economy will be based on the redistribution of wealth and eventually the cashless society, 666, where no one can legally buy or sell unless they accept the mark-of-the-beast. In order for this to happen, each country will have to be overtaken by the modern god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh and the computer chip technology. Countries that have already surrendered to the forerunner of the economic system of the anti-Christ includes China, India, Sweden, Venezuela, and probably others. Even the United States has businesses in several States that are implanting computer chips into their employees hand. Every country that surrenders to the economic system of the anti-Christ have also tossed aside faith in the One True God, have tossed aside the Message of the Cross of Christ, and have tossed aside the presence of the Holy Spirit. We need the Spirit of Christ in this world today!
In today’s scripture text, Isaiah gives an example of a nation that was overtaken by a hostile force, which led to the demise of the wealth and prosperity of free-trade. Isaiah, through the Holy Spirit, tells Tarshish to howl because their ships are laid waste, made absolutely useless. The wealth of their import and export business was desolated. How were they made useless? Because countries are overtaken by a hostile force that has no policy for free-trade routes from one country to the other! Isaiah said look at the country of the Chaldeans: that country was brought to ruins in such a way that Tarshish should learn a lesson from it. Syria made the Chaldeans something they were not, which completely desolated the culture that they once were. And this is exactly what God will do to every country that rejects the Living God, refuses to abide by what Jesus Christ did for them on the Cross, and tosses aside the need for the Holy Spirit. Our world needs the Spirit of Christ!
When it comes to partnerships that make free-trade work, the system of the ant-Christ is dead set against that. The 666 goes about like a hungry bear to devour relationships that are based on the essence of the Holy Spirit. “And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!’ Daniel 7:5 5 Eve was raised up on her side to be a help-mate to Adam, and to cleave to one another. That type of relationship is the stuff that free-trade is made of. But, the anti-Christ controls that bear with three ribs in its mouth, the three ribs representing the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the anti-Christ demands to be in control of all partnerships and trade deals.
In fact, like many countries today, the land of the Chaldeans was founded for those who live in the wilderness. The wilderness represents people who are seeking the ideal society, living in the temptations of sin, seeking God’s promise of a better future, and are prone to the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. Satan uses them to steal from free-trade wealth, to destroy the infrastructure of free-trade, and to kill the Spirit of Christ that makes mutual and prosperous interactions possible. Those who seek to change countries, that once were good for free trade, build their offices and government buildings to totally change the culture of the country that they overtake. The modern god of knowledge brings to ruin countries that once were favorable to a democracy based on faith in the Living God, favorable to what Christ Jesus did for us on the Cross, and favorable to the infilling of the Holy Spirit. They set up their towers that signal their support for the economic system of the anti-Christ. We need the Spirit of Christ in our world today!
Within our spirit and soul we need to separate ourselves from the god of knowledge and to be ready to reject the gently imposing, made-to-look-harmless chip implant. The Spirit of Christ sets us apart from all things that are demonic, of Satan, and relevant to the anti-Christ. When our sin is in remission, then demonic forces and the anti-Christ are not able to use our thoughts and actions to usher in the globalism of the anti-Christ. The Holy Spirit fills in our spirit and soul with the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Our will becomes in sync to the Will of God, which is for the redemption of humanity through the Cross of Jesus Christ. Let’s accept Jesus Christ as our lord and Savior and let’s encourage others to do so as well.
“Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; and he brought it to ruin. Howl, ye ships of Tarshish: for your strength is laid waste.”
Isaiah 23:13-14 KJV
