Ezekiel Chapter 28
2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:
13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy 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.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore 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.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
22 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee: and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
25 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob.
26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.

Ezekiel Chapter 28 Bible commentary...
The sentence against the prince or king of Tyre. (1-19) The fall of Zidon. (20-23) The restoration of Israel. (24-26)1-19 Ethbaal, or Ithobal, was the prince or king of Tyre; and being lifted up with excessive pride, he claimed Divine honours. Pride is peculiarly the sin of our fallen nature. Nor can any wisdom, except that which the Lord gives, lead to happiness in this world or in that which is to come. The haughty prince of Tyre thought he was able to protect his people by his own power, and considered himself as equal to the inhabitants of heaven. If it were possible to dwell in the garden of Eden, or even to enter heaven, no solid happiness could be enjoyed without a humble, holy, and spiritual mind. Especially all spiritual pride is of the devil. Those who indulge therein must expect to perish.
20-26. The Zidonians were borderers upon the land of Israel, and they might have learned to glorify the Lord; but, instead of that, they seduced Israel to the worship of their idols. War and pestilence are God's messengers; but he will be glorified in the restoring his people to their former safety and prosperity. God will cure them of their sins, and ease them of their troubles. This promise will at length fully come to pass in the heavenly Canaan: when all the saints shall be gathered together, every thing that offends shall be removed, all griefs and fears for ever banished. Happy, then, is the church of God, and every living member of it, though poor, afflicted, and despised; for the Lord will display his truth, power, and mercy, in the salvation and happiness of his redeemed people.
Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

I AGREE THAT LUCIFER IS IN CONTROL OF THIS EARTH BUT THAT IS ON ONLY FOR A TIME BEING YOU SEE JESUS CHRIST WHEN HE COMETH TO THIS EARTH HE WILL JUDGE LUCIFER, AND HIS ANGEL.THEN JESUS CHRIST WILL DEAL WITH THE PEOPLE NOT OF THIS WORLD HE WILL JUDGE THE PEOPLE NOT OF THIS WORLD BY MAKING SURE THAT THEY DID 4 THINGS ONE FOLLOW THE LIGHT TO THE PATH OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, 2. THAT YOU GET THE POWER WHICH IS THE HOLY SPIRIT OF THE FLESH WHICH THAT WOULD BE THE SPIRIT OF GOD 3.THAT YOU PUT EVERY THING TO DEATH, 4.THAT YOU MINISTER THE TRUTH. THEN JESUS CHRIST WILL JUDGE THE WORLD WITH THE PEOPLE NOT OF THIS WORLD, THEY WILL JUDGE THE SMALLER MATTERS.JESUS CHRIST IS COMING TO SAVE THE WORLD NOT CONDEM THE WORLD. JESUS CHRIST DOES NOT WANT THE BURDEN TO JUDGE THE WORLD BY HIMSELF SO HE IS GOING TO USE THE ELECTED ONE 'S, AND CHOSEN ONE 'S TO JUDGE THE WORLD.JESUS CHRIST WILL ALSO JUDGE THE BIGGER MATTERS OF THE WORLD.THIS IS THE TRUE WORDS OF JESUS CHRIST, AND HIS SERVANT.
