2Son of man, because Tyre has said against Jerusalem, Aha! She is broken that has been the gate of the people; she is open to me [Tyre]; I shall become full now that she is desolate and a wasteland,
3Therefore thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Tyre, and will cause many nations to come up against you as the sea mounts up by its waves.
4And they shall destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers; I will also [a]scrape her dust from her and make her bare like the top of a rock.
5Her island in the midst of the sea shall become a place for the spreading of nets, for I have spoken it, says the Lord God; and she shall become a prey and a spoil to the nations.
6And Tyre's daughters [her towns and villages on the mainland] in the level place shall be slain by the sword, and they shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord [the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service].
7For thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will bring from the north upon Tyre [b]Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, with horses and chariots and with horsemen and a host of many people.
8He shall slay with the sword your daughters [the towns and villages] in the level area [on the mainland], and he shall make a fortified wall against you and cast up a siege mound against you and raise up a roof of bucklers and shields as a defense against you.
9And he shall set his battering engines in shock against your walls, and with his axes he will break down your towers.
10Because of the great number of [Nebuchadrezzar's] horses, their dust will cover you; your walls [O Tyre] will shake at the noise of the horsemen and of the wagon wheels and of the chariots, when he enters into your gates as men enter into the city in whose walls there has been made a breach.
11With the hoofs of his horses [Nebuchadrezzar] will trample all your streets; he will slay your people with the sword and your strong pillars or obelisks will fall to the ground.
12And [your adversaries] shall make a spoil of your riches and make booty of your merchandise. And they shall break down your walls and destroy your pleasant houses, and they shall lay the stones and the timber and the very dust from your demolished city out in the midst of the water [between the island and the mainland city site to make a causeway].
13And I will cause the noise of your songs to cease, and the sound of your lyres shall be no more heard.
14And I will make you [Tyre] a [c]bare rock; you shall be a place upon which to spread nets; you shall never be rebuilt, for I the Lord have spoken it, says the Lord God.
15Thus says the Lord God to Tyre: Shall not the isles and coastlands shake at the sound of your fall when the wounded groan, when the slaughter is made in the midst of you?
16Then all the princes of the sea shall come down from their thrones and lay aside their robes and strip off their embroidered garments; they shall clothe themselves with tremblings; they shall sit upon the ground and shall tremble every moment and be astonished at you and appalled.
17They shall take up a lamentation over you and say to you, How you are destroyed and vanished, O renowned city that was won from the seas and inhabited by seafaring men, renowned city that was mighty on the sea, she and her inhabitants who caused their terror to fall upon all who dwell there!
18Now the isles and coastlands tremble in the day of your fall; yes, the isles that are in the sea are troubled and dismayed at your departure.
19For thus says the Lord God: When I make you a desolate city like the cities that are not inhabited, when I bring up the deep over you and great waters cover you,
20Then I will thrust you down with those who descend into the pit (the place of the dead) to the people of olden times, and I will make you [Tyre] to dwell in the lower world like the places that were desolate of old, with those who go down to the pit, that you be not inhabited or shed forth your glory and renown in the land of the living.
21I will make you a terror [bring you to a dreadful end] and you shall be no more. Though you be sought, yet you shall never be found again, says the Lord God.

This gets even MORE interesting when you take a look at this picture;
(NOTE The similarities between that city and most depictions of Atlantis with its concentric rings of land & water.)
Basically Jacque Fresco has a plan for what would be a God less society run on a resource based economy and other ideas which CAN'T actually work and are most likely going to end up as part of the evil world system that the Anticrhist will use in the Great Tribulation. Basically it would seem that Jacque Fresco's ideal cities as depicted for the Venus Project looks HIGHLY reminiscent of Atlantis.(Venus A.K.A. the Morning Star WAS Lucifer's title before he rebelled against Yahweh and became Satan). (However now Jesus is THE bright Morning Star hence the ministries that call themselves Morning Star.) It is also important for me to mention that the Venus Project is a part of the Zeitgeist movement which DOES have obvious ANTI-CHRISTIAN religious views and supports the ancient mystery religions. (OK so TECHNICALLY speaking the Venus project CLAIMS to have separated from the rest of the zeitgeist movement yet they are still deceptive LIARS who are setting things up for a strong DELUSION and lie from HELL because they will require people to take a micro-chip which is the Mark of the Beast spoken of in Revelation 13.)
(Note By Blogger: I still think it is OK to celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25th.
Please feel free to come to your own conclusions on this and like I said there are still several events which MUST occur PRIOR to the Great Tribulation or the Rapture such as the fulfillment of the prophecy in Joel Chapter 2 verse 28 which refers to Yahweh (GOD) pouring out HIS spirit on ALL flesh.
(Disclaimer: I don't agree with ANY anti-catholic claims which might have been made in that video.)
