Hi Chris The city of Tyre in Ezekial 27 is the world? Perhaps it typifies both
A. In the beginning the garden of Eden was the place of God’s blessing. And the people of God dwelt therein. Just as Israel was in the promised land of Canaan and the churches also became a place representing God’s kingdom on earth. God says this of the king of Tyrus:
Ezekiel 28: 12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone wasthy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14Thou 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. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
The language only fits the description of mankind before the fall into sin (perfect in thy ways from the day thou was created till iniquity was found in thee). But the language may also apply to other corporate entities (such as Israel/N.T. church) since Tyrus represents mankind that had a relationship to God similar to the relationship Israel had with God in the O.T. and the relationship the churches had with God in the N.T.
Q. Chris, in Acts 13:38-41, the context is focused on the time salvation was still available.
