“Tyrus” in chapters 26 to 28 of Ezekiel is none other than Atlantis, the city state of antiquity that sunk into the Atlantic ocean.
Now shall the isles tremble in the day of thy fall; yea, the isles that are in the sea shall be troubled at thy departure. For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall bring up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee;Ezekiel 26:18-19
For ages, many people have wondered about the location of the lost civilisation of Atlantis, everyone from archaeologists to historians to occultists, but no one has ever found it.
I will make thee a terror, and thou shalt be no more: though thou be sought for, yet shalt thou never be found again, saith the Lord GOD.Ezekiel 26:21
The Greek philosopher Plato mentioned ancient Atlantis in his dialogues Timaeus and Critias, circa 4th-3rd century BC. Except for me, it has never occurred to anyone that Atlantis is also mentioned in the Bible.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against thee, as the sea causeth his waves to come up. And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock. It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD: and it shall become a spoil to the nations.Ezekiel 26:3-5
Plato located the city of Atlantis outside the pillars of Hercules (or Heracles), beyond the strait of Gibraltar, somewhere in the Atlantic ocean. Likewise, the Bible describes Tyrus as an island situated at the entry of the sea, presumably the Mediterranean.
And say unto Tyrus, O thou that art situate at the entry of the sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles, Thus saith the Lord GOD…Ezekiel 27:3
Plato described the design of the city of Atlantis as one of concentric circles, specifically circular canals of water with bridges and aqueducts, all geometrically pleasing. The Bible says, Tyrus describes herself as having perfect beauty.
… O Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of perfect beauty. Thy borders are in the midst of the seas, thy builders have perfected thy beauty.Ezekiel 27:3-4
Mystics, occultists and secret societies have long been fascinated by Atlantis. The American clairvoyant Edgar Cayce, a seeker of familiar spirits, said he dreamt Atlantis would be found in the Bahamas (ref. 1). The Nazi SS leader and occultist Heinrich Himmler sent expeditions to the Himalayas in search of evidence of Atlantis, which he thought was key to the lore of the Aryan race (ref. 2). The theosophist Manly P Hall contended that the indigenous Indians of America were descendants of the remnant of Atlantis (ref. 3). Francis Bacon, a member of the secret society of Rosicrucians, declared in 1626 that America would become the new Atlantis (ref. 4). Actually, it is the other way around: Atlantis was a forerunner of America!
Satanists of all sorts have long been fascinated by Atlantis, because Ezekiel 28 explains that the god that controlled Atlantis was a cherub that turned against the Most High.
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God… the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.Ezekiel 28:13-15
The theologian Thomas Aquinas contended that this angel in Ezekiel 28 that turned against God is Satan himself.
… I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire… I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee… I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth… thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.Ezekiel 28:16-19
Satan or not, this rebellious angel that ruled Atlantis was and is evil, and is therefore the praise and fascination of occultists.
According to Greek myth, the god of Atlantis was Poseidon. Have you noticed a lot of America is named after the gods of Greek mythology? “Trident” nukes, “Nike” anti-air missiles, the district of “Columbia”, NASA’s “Apollo” programme, the “Atlantis” space shuttle, and so on.
Needless to say, when the elites of today speak of “the west”, they are referring to western civilisation. Even nations such as Australia that are geographically in the southeast are said to belong to the west. Let it be known, what these sorts admire most about the origin of the west is not actually the Greek world of Plato and Aristotle, but rather the mystical civilisation of Atlantis, which was situated in the Atlantic ocean, literally west of Jerusalem.
The people of Atlantis were Phoenician, a people of European descent akin to the Greeks.
The origin of Phoenicia as a civilisation was Tyre, a port city geographically situated in modern day Lebanon.
Romans like Cato tell us through their speeches and writings that Carthage was a mighty naval power.
Since Carthage and Atlantis shared the same culture and outlook, it is no wonder that Plato described Atlantis as a militaristic seafaring power from beyond the strait of Gibraltar that brought war to the Mediterranean. And likewise, the Bible describes Tyrus as a seafaring warlike people.
Thy borders are in the midst of the seas, thy builders have perfected thy beauty. They have made all thy ship boards of fir trees of Senir: they have taken cedars from Lebanon to make masts for thee. Of the oaks of Bashan have they made thine oars; the company of the Ashurites have made thy benches of ivory, brought out of the isles of Chittim. Fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was that which thou spreadest forth to be thy sail… The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were thy mariners; thy wise men, O Tyrus, that were in thee, were thy pilots [lit. ship drivers].Ezekiel 27:4-8
They of Persia and of Lud and of Phut were in thine army, thy men of war: they hanged the shield and helmet in thee… The men of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round about, and the Gammadims were in thy towers…Ezekiel 27:10-11
Wealth from trade is a key aspect of Phoenician civilisation: after the 2nd Punic War, it was the remarkable increase in the wealth of Carthage from trade that prompted Cato to declare “Carthago delenda est”.
About Atlantis Plato said, merchants from everywhere went there to trade in her markets, thereby making Atlantis wealthy and advanced. Likewise, the Bible speaks of merchants from the world over in the markets of Tyrus, buying and selling all manner of merchandise and raw materials, thereby making her rich.
Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded in thy fairs. Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy merchants: they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market. They of the house of Togarmah traded in thy fairs with horses and horsemen and mules. The men of Dedan were thy merchants; many isles were the merchandise of thine hand: they brought thee for a present horns of ivory and ebony. Syria was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of the wares of thy making: they occupied in thy fairs with emeralds, purple, and broidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and agate. Judah, and the land of Israel, they were thy merchants: they traded in thy market wheat of Minnith, and Pannag, and honey, and oil, and balm. Damascus was thy merchant in the multitude of the wares of thy making, for the multitude of all riches; in the wine of Helbon, and white wool. Dan also and Javan going to and fro occupied in thy fairs: bright iron, cassia, and calamus, were in thy market. Dedan was thy merchant in precious clothes for chariots. Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they occupied with thee in lambs, and rams, and goats: in these were thy merchants. The merchants of Sheba and Raamah, they were thy merchants: they occupied thy fairs with chief of all spices, and with all precious stones, and gold. Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Asshur, and Chilmad, were thy merchants. These were thy merchants in all sorts of things, in blue clothes, and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel, bound with cords, and made of cedar, among thy merchandise. The ships of Tarshish did sing of thee in thy market: and thou wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the seas.Ezekiel 27:12-25
Incidentally, Tarshish, which brought tin to the Levant through the markets of Tyrus, is the island of England. This was confirmed in 2019 by isotopic analysis of ancient tin ingots found in the Mediterranean (ref. 7).
Now, Plato described a war in which Atlantis on one side of the pillars of Hercules fought against all who were on the other side of the pillars of Hercules, a war that occurred before Atlantis was sunk by a considerable earthquake. According to Plato, in this war, the peoples of the Mediterranean united under the leadership of the Athenians, to defeat Atlantis. About the Athenians, Plato is mistaken. The Bible explains that the LORD of hosts made Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, his servant (ref. Jeremiah 27:6), take Tyrus (ref. Ezekiel 26:7) shortly after Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest of Judah.
For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring upon Tyrus Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the north, with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people. He shall slay with the sword thy daughters in the field: and he shall make a fort against thee, and cast a mount against thee, and lift up the buckler against thee. And he shall set engines of war against thy walls, and with his axes he shall break down thy towers.Ezekiel 26:7-9
Though Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon was north of Jerusalem, it was also east of the island of Atlantis. It was, as it were, an army of horsemen from the east!
By reason of the abundance of his horses their dust shall cover thee: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the horsemen, and of the wheels, and of the chariots, when he shall enter into thy gates, as men enter into a city wherein is made a breach. With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong garrisons shall go down to the ground.Ezekiel 26:10-11
To be clear, Nebuchadnezzar captured Tyre in what is today Lebanon. Tyre, as I said, was the origin of the Phoenicians, and therefore aligned to or a part of Atlantis.
The riches of Tyre, and also Egypt, explains why Babylon ended up with a lot of gold and subsequently was able to create a towering statue of pure gold (ref. Daniel 3:1).
And they shall make a spoil of thy riches, and make a prey of thy merchandise: and they shall break down thy walls, and destroy thy pleasant houses: and they shall lay thy stones and thy timber and thy dust in the midst of the water.Ezekiel 26:12
Now, Plato said, a great earthquake happened after the war, one that caused Atlantis to sink, and so the waters became muddy and impassable, and Atlantis was no more. Likewise, the Bible says, after the fall of Tyre to Nebuchadnezzar, a great earthquake happened in the Atlantic ocean, causing Tyrus to sink.
And I will make thee like the top of a rock: thou shalt be a place to spread nets upon; thou shalt be built no more: for I the LORD have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. Thus saith the Lord GOD to Tyrus; Shall not the isles shake at the sound of thy fall, when the wounded cry, when the slaughter is made in the midst of thee?Ezekiel 26:14-15
And they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and say to thee, How art thou destroyed, that wast inhabited of seafaring men, the renowned city, which wast strong in the sea, she and her inhabitants, which cause their terror to be on all that haunt it! Now shall the isles tremble in the day of thy fall; yea, the isles that are in the sea shall be troubled at thy departure. For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall bring up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee;Ezekiel 26:17-19
I find it remarkable that the KJV translators thought it right to translate the Hebrew tsor (trans.) in Isaiah 23 as “Tyre” but the same tsor (trans.) in Ezekiel 26-28 as “Tyrus”. The two tsor’s are different, because the latter or a part of the latter is to sink into the sea.
Another thing to notice is that both Tyre in Isaiah 23 and Tyrus in Ezekiel 26-28 are connected to Mystery Babylon in Revelation 17-18. Tyre, because of harlotry, or spiritual fornication, in other words “freedom of religion”. Tyrus, because of Atlantis and “the New Atlantis”.
What is more, Tyre in Isaiah 23 was the crowning city of the Crusader States of the 12th and 13th centuries, and Sidon nearby was a Templar stronghold. Today, Scottish Rite Freemasonry, a secret society that stems from the same Templars, is headquartered in Mystery Babylon.
This link between Tyrus and Babylon, or put another way, this link between ancient Atlantis and new Atlantis, means one can read the prophecies of Ezekiel 27 with Mystery Babylon in mind.
And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and lament over thee, saying What city is like Tyrus, like the destroyed in the midst of the sea? When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst many people; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise.Ezekiel 27:32-33
For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!Revelation 18:17-18
Last but not least, I want to point out that before the end of Atlantis came, her navy, the mightiest in its day, was defeated in the midst of the sea by an east wind, an act of God.
Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters: the east wind hath broken thee in the midst of the seas.Ezekiel 27:26
In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. In that day sing ye unto her, A vineyard of red wine… In measure, when it shooteth forth, thou wilt debate with it: he stayeth his rough wind in the day of the east wind.Isaiah 27:1-8
About the forthcoming day of the east wind, the DF in China’s DF-21D, DF-26, etc., stands for Dong Feng 东风, lit. “East Wind”.
In the time when thou shalt be broken by the seas in the depths of the waters… All the inhabitants of the isles shall be astonished at thee, and their kings shall be sore afraid…Ezekiel 27:34-35
