QUESTION: What is the 28th., chapter of Ezekiel talking about?

ANSWER: Lucifer.

“The word of the lord came again unto me saying, 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, thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God, behold thou art wiser than Daniel, there is no secret that can be hid from me.”

These words come when Tyre is a very wicked city and the king of Tyre is Lucifer. In other words, Lucifer is here incarnate at this time. Now Lucifer can be incarnate in many ways, and he was embodied in various periods of time. Here he was as the King of Tyre, and so Ezekiel was told to say to Lucifer the above things, then also to say:-

“With thy great wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and has gotten gold and silver into thy treasures, by the greatness of thy wisdom and thy traffic, thou hast increased thy riches and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches.”
