Scripture reading for September 12th: Ezekiel 25-29
Key Scriptures: Ezekiel 28:14-17 “You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you. Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.”
Ezekiel was given a prophesy for the King of Tyre. This prophesy seems to speak about a fallen created angel who became proud and was thrown out of heaven and down to earth. Ezekiel’s prophesy mirrors part of John’s vision in the 12th chapter of Revelation!
The God of Justice: “And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down–that ancient serpent called the devil or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth and his angels with him.” (Revelation 12:7-9)
