2 Corinthians 10. The Apostle Paul reminded the Corinthians that this is a spiritual war “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.”  He defined his authority and the limits of his authority; it is all in Christ: “But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Isaiah 23, a prophecy about Tyre,

At this time, the Syro-Phonecians were the merchants of the Mediterranean Sea.

Sidon is now the third largest city in Lebanon, Tyre is the fourth largest.

This merchant fleet was still dominant, even in Roman times,

The people of Sidon and Tyre were called Caananites, and the Jews considered them inferior. Yet Jesus found great faith and healed the Caananite woman’s daughter.

It was a Syro-Phonecian widow that sustained  Elijah during the three and a half year drought.

But the people of Tyre and Sidon worshipped Baal, and the woman Jezebel stemmed from Sidon.
