(In this 28th chapter of God identifies the son of perdition (Satan) of the New Testament whereby there is no doubt in your mind and He will talk about Satan himself even in the first earth age. He will begin in the first part of chapter 28 speaking of Satan after his fall where there he is only called a prince; he’s prince of the hour of darkness, like now. But before that he was a king or was likened unto a king. So the only individual that’s already had the great white throne judgment is Satan. Remember again, the word Tyrus means rock. Tyrus – Tsor - H6865 = Tyre or Tyrus = "a rock". However, he is not our Rock.)

Ezekiel 28)

1 The word of the LORD came again to me, saying,
2 "Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre (the prince is to be distinguished as the type [vv.1-10] from the king of Tyre, the antitype [vv.11-19]. He is a mere man, as shown in v.9. He was Ithobalas II), 'Thus says the Lord GOD;

'Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, 'I am a God (El), I sit in the seat of God (Elohim), in the heart of the seas;' yet you are a man, and not God, (Fig., by which the same thing is put in 2 ways [1st pos. and then neg.] to emphasize the fact that the "price" here spoken to [vv.2-10] is purely human, and therefore not the "king" spoken to in vv.11-19)

R  T  m  -2-. Your heart is lifted up.
       n  -2. As the heart of God.
        U  o  3,4-. Your wisdom.
            p  -4. Your riches. Gotten.
        U  o  5-. Your wisdom.
            p  -5-. Your riches. Increased.
   T  m  -5. Your heart is lifted up.
       n  6. As the heart of God.

though you set your heart as the heart of God: (make a note of a couple of scriptures; 2 Thessalonians, chapter 2, verses 3-4, where Paul is saying there is no way that Christ is coming in the 2nd Advent to gather us back to him until after the son of perdition is revealed in the Holy place claiming to be God. So we see the pride of this one that is "ish" in the Hebrew; only a man, a man that God created who is Satan himself. Why is he called a man? Well, we’ll find out before we finish this chapter.)

3 Behold, you are wiser (in their own eyes) than Daniel (here an example of wisdom; as righteousness in 14:14,20. Cp. Dan. 1:17); there is no secret that they can hide from you: (He knows every weakness you’ve got friend. If you stand against him, he knows you. He knows your weakness so he can talk advantage of you.)
4 With your wisdom and with your understanding you have gotten you riches,

and have gotten gold and silver into your treasures: (This means just as the city of Tyre, which was trade centers then, which is now cargo that goes around the world. He still, back in business.)

5 By your great wisdom (You are so proud of yourself. You know, that is the main weapon that Satan will use against you. He’ll start telling you what a great person you are. And boy you better let the hair on the back of you neck rise if he starts working on you in that way. A lot of people that like to go onto ego trips fall right into that trap. They say to themselves "Well this is a good judge of character. Realizes I’m something very special"… Now mind you, in this next verse, God is speaking to Lucifer in regarding what he did in that 1st world age)

and by your traffic have you increased your riches,

and your heart is lifted up because of your riches: (In other words thru commerce he is able to make gains in this world by using the people of this world)

6 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; 'Because you have set your heart as the heart of God;

S  q  7,8-. Judgment executed by strangers.
    r  -8. You shall die the deaths,&c.
     s  9-. I am God.
     s  -9. You are a man.
    r  10-. You shall die the deaths,&c.
   q  -10. Judgment executed by strangers.

7 Behold, therefore I will bring aliens upon you, the terrible of the nations: (That’s the bruisers, and God’s telling him what will happen to him as the end his reign in the roll of antichrist is just about over. This will happen in the 2nd age of the flesh) and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom, (Do you know what those swords are? It’s the sword of the Lord in Revelation chapter 1, verse 16) and they shall profane your splendor. (See Gen. 3:1. He is not a grotesque beast. His beauty is mentioned here, and he is a pretty-boy. Isaiah, chapter 14: is this the man?)
8 They shall bring you down to the pit (= corruption. That same old pit called the abyss in Revelation as well as Isaiah 14),

and you shall die the deaths of them that are wounded in the heart of the seas. (In other words you’re going to be gone forever in… what is that sea? It’s called the lake of fire. You can read of it in Revelation chapter 20:9-10)

9 Will you yet say before Him That slays you, 'I am God?'

but you are a man, and no God, in the hand of Him That slays you. (Do you know who slays him? Do you know why Christ came to this earth, born in the flesh, [into this 2nd, flesh age]? Have you ever read the 2nd chapter of Hebrews? In Hebrews chapter 2, verse 14 it stipulates very clearly that Christ won’t ask you to do something, God wouldn’t ask you to do something He wouldn’t do Himself and so He came born of a virgin. Satan was the one that cried for the death of Emanuel, meaning God with us. So now God doesn’t have to feel backward about destroying him in the lack of fire. I mean after all, satan is his child. God created him also.)

10 You shall die the awful death of the uncircumcised (i.e. come to the miserable end of the ungodly. Cp. 31:18; 32:19,21,25,32. And we see that he will die. As a matter of fact, we’ll see in this chapter, he is sentenced to death.)

by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, says the Lord GOD.' "

11 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
12 "Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyre (here we have a supernatural being addressed: He of whom the "prince of Tyre" was only a type; He who was using that "prince" as one of his agents to secure the world power. He is not a mere "man" as the "prince of Tyre" [v.9]. His description [vv.-12-17-, below] is superterestrial, and superhuman, and can refer to no other than Satan himself), and say to him, 'Thus says the Lord GOD;

R  t  -12,13. His "wisdom" and "beauty".
    u  14,15-. The covering Cherub.
     v  -15. His iniquity.
     v  16-. His sin.
    u  -16. The covering Cherub.
   t  17-. His "wisdom" and "beauty".

'You are the finished pattern, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. (Here he is described when he was in that full pattern, full of wisdom and full of beauty. And as we learn in the Song of Moses our rock is not their rock. Their rock, the king of Tyrus is none other than Satan. God created Satan full of wisdom and beauty.)
13 You were in Eden (here is no evidence of a "legend", but a reality. Satan, the Nachash or shining one, was there. See Gen. 3:1. Eve was smitten with his beauty as "an angel of light" [2 Cor. 11:14]; and deferred to him as one possessing this "wisdom", and believed his power to make good his promise. No mention of Eden since Gen. 4:16. Isa. 51, till here; and none after until 31:9,16,18; 36:35. Isa. 51:3. Joel 2:3) the garden of God (this is added to leave us no doubt as to what is meant by Eden, and to show that it was no mere "summer residence" of the "prince" of Tyre, but the garden of Gen. 2:8-15); every precious stone (referring to Gen. 2:11,12) was your 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 your drums and of your pipes was prepared in you in the day that you were created. (Not begotten by man, or born of woman. This can only refer to Satan. God created him; the arch angel that has fallen. We are going to find out which cherub we are talking about here in a moment, but here we see him not as something ugly, not something or someone in red long handle underwear with horns, but beautiful.)

14 You are the anointed cherub that covers (cherub can be used only of a supernatural being, overshadowing and protecting "the world that then was" [2 Pet. 3:6], or the "garden" of v.13); and I have set you so: you were upon the holy mountain of God (see v.16; and cp. Isa. 14:12-14); you did walk to and fro in the midst of the stones of fire. (Referring to the facts concerning which nothing further is revealed. He was right at the alter of God! Do you know what this word covereth means? He was one of the cherubs, and you’ve seen the depiction that Moses built and was the Ark of the Covenant, the Mercy Seat, the Seat of Christ, the Seat of Almighty God, and there are 2 Cherubim on each end the end of that Ark. Satan was one of those cherubim that was supposed to protect the seat of God. But rather, satan decided within himself that he would take the seat for himself. That’s a hard learned lesson for many but you had better wake up to it. Satan’s coming back to this earth and will claim that he is the one that rightfully sits in that place, the Mercy Seat. But I guarantee you he has no mercy. So he was the anointed. Do you know what anointed means? He was anointed with the oil of our people for that position.)
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, (Referring to the period before Satan's fall.)

till perversity was found in you. (In other words he stopped loving God and began to take pride in himself; that one that was to protect the mercy seat wanted to be seated upon it. In other words, he that was to protect the seat of Christ, but instead, he wanted to be Christ. He wanted to be that Son of God. Although God created him, as He did all others, His pride within himself brought about his failure, though full of beauty. Be prepared my friend. He will be cast from heaven on to this earth as it is written in Revelation 12:7. Picture if you would in your mind the ark that Moses was commanded by God to build with a cherub on each end of the mercy seat. This was Satan’s position in the world that was. Pride is a killer if it’s self-pride. You should always be proud of what you do, but self-pride a different thing.)

16 By the multitude of your traffic (or going about, as in v.18. Hence it meant calumniator [slanderer], in a moral sense) they have filled the midst of you with violence, (This is in a moral sense. He had the riches that God bestowed on him of that position with beauty and wisdom, and he misused it turning towards self, filling himself, and what resulted was envy, lust, evil, and violence; thus he turned to the opposite those things of God, destroying that which is good and turning to that which is evil. That is one reason why he is called the destroyer.) and you did sin:

therefore I cast you as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy you, O covering cherub (see v.14), from (contrast this "from" with "in" v.14) the heart of the stones of fire. (In other words he was removed from that office. And that’s why he’s called a prince in the first part of this chapter so that you in wisdom could understand. Demoted. Hey, don’t try to outsmart him. Never argue with Satan. Just say "away from me in the name of Yahshuah", in the name of Jesus. Now for the documentation that he is the only son of perdition. There would be more but there would have to another white throne judgment first before there would be one. [That doesn’t happen until the 3rd earth age.] And if you think the son of perdition is little old Judas, you’ve been so far led astray biblically that you have to start over basically. I could sell you the Brooklyn Bridge if you thought Judas was the son of perdition. This is the son of perdition. Why?)

17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty, (pride) you did corrupt your wisdom by reason of your brightness: (The splendor, nâchâsh. That serpent. This took place when that first earth-age was destroyed. Many are not familiar with that first earth-age. It was ended at Satan’s rebellion, at the overthrow. That time it is written of in Gen 1:1 and 1:2 and is understood only in the Hebrew. As well, it is written of in Jeremiah 4:23; that time of the overthrow and this great beauty that God gave unto this one. See Matt. 13:55.)

S  V  w  -17-. Cast to the earth.
       x  -17. They that behold you.
        W  18-. His fall: the cause of it.
        W  -18-. His fall: the consequences of it.
   V  w  -18-. Brought to ashes on the earth.
       x  -18,19. They that behold you.

I did cast you to the earth (Heb. 'eretz [with article]. That is to say the earth. That’s right here friend. That’s where you live. That’s home.), I will lay you before kings,

that they may behold you. (In this 2nd, flesh age. They’re going to take a great look and he’s going to perform miracles in the sight of men and the weak and the unlearned will be deceived by his playing God, and they’re going to think that he is. Because he is good at it and he is beautiful. He looks very much like what people say Christ looks like and do you know what his message is? Number 1, “I’ve come to fly you away, all ye gather unto me.” That’s why God taught very specifically back in chapter 13 of Ezekiel, “I’m against those that teach to fly to save their souls.”)
18 You did defiled your sanctuaries by the abounding of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your traffic (He ruined the houses of God that he was in charge of, controlled over);

therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of you, it shall devour you, (See Rev. 20:10. That’s Almighty God speaking. Do you know what devour means? It means to perish.)

and I will bring you to ashes upon the earth

in the sight of all them that behold you. (Right into the lake of fire. That is your absolute documentation in that he is the son of perdition, because he is the only one that God has judged already to destruction [sentenced in that 1st earth age]. Some would say, “Well there are some He says He will send to destruction”… IF they don’t change their ways, but they’ve got to be judged first. This man is already judged. Satan is already judged. Do you know what the word perdition means? I think that’s where maybe a lot of people fall short is by not understanding the Greek. It means to perish:

Apōleia - ἀπώλεια – G684

1) destroying, utter destruction
a) of vessels

2) a perishing, ruin, destruction

From Thayer’s Lexicon

Do you realize how close Apōleia is to even one of Satan’s names which is Apollyon and it comes from the same prime, G622 in your Greek dictionary of your Strong’s Concordance:

Strong's G622 – apollymi - ἀπόλλυμι

1) to destroy a) to put out of the way entirely, abolish, put an end to ruin b) render useless c) to kill d) to declare that one must be put to death e) metaph. to devote or give over to eternal misery in hell f) to perish, to be lost, ruined, destroyed

2) to destroy a) to lose)
19 All they that know you among the peoples shall be astonished at you: you shall become a terror, and never shall you be for ever.' ' " (He will be blotted out forever and ever, will be as though he never existed. That time of deception will be gone forever, yes, for those that can be lied to and for those that will allow themselves to be deceived. Will you be deceived? That old dragon, Lucifer, what ever title you wish to call him by, that play-actor wants to move to that seat, the mercy seat. He will come as the “instead of Christ”, or as some call “antichrist”. And with that wisdom he will be able to deceive. Satan still has work to do in the service of Almighty God. That is to say to tempt and to test those that still must pass through this earth age and even a short season at the end of the millennial age. So Satan is not in hell. As a matter of fact if you’ve ever read the 12th chapter of Revelation you’ll find out quite frankly that Michael and his angels cast Satan from heaven or paradise, across that gulf where the rich man that was evil was, and out onto this earth, de facto, in person. He will be able to bring that deception upon many. See that it is not you. It’s simply this one fulfilling the role of antichrist in the sight of man. Many think that they are going to be flown away first. Well, they will not. In Romans, chapter 11 it states that God has set aside 7000 that shall not bow a knee to this one and his deception and that they will be a witness. Do you have a destiny? Do you have a purpose? Have you known from the time you were a child that there was more to God’s word than you were being told?)

20:20-26. Zidon.
K2  y  21. Prophecy of evil for Zidon.
     z  22,23. Yehovah known by His judgment on Zidon.
     z  24. Yehovah known by His removal of Zidon.

20 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
21 "Son of man, set your face against Zidon (was not threatened with extinction, as Tyre was. See 26:2), and prophesy against it,

22 And say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD; 'Behold, I am against you, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of you (cp. Ex. 14:4,17): and they shall know that I am the LORD (see 6:10), when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon her on every side; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier (cp. Num. 33:55) to the house of Israel (see Ex. 16:31), nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised them; and they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.' '

25 Thus says the Lord GOD; 'When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered (see Deut. 30:3,4. Lev. 26:44,45. Ps. 106:47. Isa. 11:11,12,13; 27:12,13. Jer. 30:18; 31:8-10; 32:37. Hos. 1:11. Joel 3:7. Amos 9:14,15. Obad. 17-21. Zeph. 3:19,20), and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the nations, then shall they dwell on their soil that I have given to My servant Jacob. (See Gen. 28:13, and Gen. 50:24.)
26 And they shall dwell with confidence therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards (cp. Isa. 65:21,22. Jer. 29:5,6,28; 31:4,5; 32:15. Amos 9:13,14); yes, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them (cp. v.24; chs. 25-32;35. Isa. 13-21. Jer. 46-51. Zech. 1:17); and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.'"
