Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Ezekiel 28:14


28:14 Cherub - For thy wisdom, power, and excellency, like a cherub, or angel; for the sacredness of thy person, and office, as the anointed of God; for the exercise of thy power, as a shield, as a protector of the weak. And I - I, whom thou forgetest have made thee so. Thou wast - Thou wast advanced to kingly dignity, (which David calls a mountain, #Psa 30:7|,) a sacred office, and of divine institution. In the midst - Surrounded with stones, that sparkle like fire.

    A Disciple, remember that among the heathen were also unbelieving Jews who took their side and denied Christ, their Messiah. They also will be judged with their neighbors and of them only a remnant will go into the Kingdom with Him. :

    I disagree slightly with Betty Weaver. The first part 1-12 was it, God is speaking of the actual King, then He begins in 13. moreover to address the author of the kings heart, and thoughts character, Satan. He declares Satan s beauty and position at the first, then his evilness and great fall from Grace his desire to be like the Most High God and sit in His seat, no mercy will be found for him!

    25-26 This is now-This is a prophecy for today. God is about to give Israel part of the land back that he gave to Abraham. [ PSALMS 83] is the prophecy that tells all about it...

    it is a truth (see the above): 'riches' and 'pride' or a combination of the 2 can not be mastered by any human (see the above). WOW! WOW! WOW!
  • Obbie Beal
    Tyrus appears almost identical to the beautiful whore (ridding the beast) found in the book of Revelation.. especially after considering the reason God's wrath is applied to each of them. 2018 may 'get-by' for a second (because of God's Mercy) but 2018 will not get-away. Wow! Wow! Wow!
