Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
We know that Tyrus means "rock" with a small "r" and the king of Tyrus refers to Satan who we already learned wanted to be "king", like our Rock, who is Jesus Christ. But as it is written in Deuteronomy chapter 32, which is the Song of Moses referred to in Rev. 15 that the overcomers will be singing at the return of Christ, this "little rock" is NOT our Rock: Deut. 32:31 "For their rock is not as our Rock..."
However, this "rock" was once a very honored and esteemed individual by our Father and all of His children too! That would include you and me. There is no mention of Satan having a little red suit and a pitchfork, is there? He is very handsome and very charismatic, a real charmer. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God;
First we see that Satan was created just like every other son of God. But, we see that a "workmanship" was also prepared for him. What in the world is that? Here's the definition of the Hebrew word "workmanship".[13 ... continued] 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.
Lucifer was given a very important DUTY or POSITION. Do you know what it was? It may surprise some! Notice in verse 13 that "every precious stone" adorned him. This simply means that Satan WORE the "Breastplate of a Priest of God", a very high position indeed! That's right, and verse 14 will show he was "anointed" to this position by our Father. You see, these stones listed in verse 13 are EXACTLY the same stones that the Levitical priests of Israel wore. Let's read the description of the priest's breastplate so we know for sure. (You can compare stone for stone if you like.)mela'kah, mel-aw-kaw', Hebrew 4399; from the same as Hebrew 4397 (mal'ak); properly deputyship, i.e. ministry; generally employment (never servile) or work (abstract or concrete); also property (as the result of labor) :- business, + cattle, + industrious, occupation, (+ -pied), + officer, thing (made), use, (manner of) work ([-man], -manship).
Note to the deeper scholar: This entire third row is missing from Ezekiel 28:13 in Hebrew, but it is supplied in the Septuagint.Exodus 28:17-21
And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row.
 And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.
 And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
 And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.
So we now understand that this "morning star", Lucifer, was a high priest of God even over the children of God. Think about it! And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.
What happens to our bodies at the last trump?
Would you like to know a secret or mystery?
The apostle Paul is about to show us one.
In 1 Cor. 15 (read the entire chapter) Paul explains that you have two bodies, a flesh body and a spiritual body.
1 Cor. 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
He's talking about you and me.
our flesh body dies we are changed into our spiritual body
and go to be with the Lord.
Absent from the body, present with the Lord.
This is basic Christianity 101.
Now for the mystery! Paul is speaking...
Pay close attention here! This is a mystery (Gk.= musterion, secret or mystery) to most people.1 Cor. 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery;
Here's how Dr. Moffat translates it:We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1 Cor. 15:51 Here is a secret truth for you: not all of us are to die, but all of us are to be changed -
Question - Changed to what?
Answer - To our spiritual bodies!
When and how are we going to be changed?
We return to the King's James translation:
What happens at the last trump, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Christ returns and we "who are alive and remain" are INSTANTLY,
in the twinkling of an eye,
changed from our flesh body to our spiritual body.
after Christ has been here awhile,
but instantly at the sound of the trump!
we learned in study
(Live Link) to- #1452 that the son of perdition,
Satan, the spurious messiah, comes FIRST,
at the six trump.
Do you know what that means?
You guessed it!
you are still in the flesh,
if you still bleed when pricked with a pin,
then Jesus Christ hasn't returned.
Or, do you see grandma, sitting over there in her rocking chair. If she appears to be older than you, you are still in your flesh and blood body. Christ has not yet returned!
Now you know the secret!
You will still be in the flesh when Satan shows up here on earth, claiming to be Christ, i.e. during the tribulation but will be changed instantly into your spirit body the moment Christ really returns!
If you still bleed when pricked with a pin you are still in the flesh,
meaning, the real Jesus Christ still hasn't returned.
Parts         
And you know what? Since God is in TOTAL CONTROL of all things in both heaven and earth, and since He loves you, His child, so very, very much, if you turn to Him with all your heart and mind and soul and seek Him through His Word, He will see to it that your Gospel Armor is "fire proof" and you have spiritual Gospel Armor Boots (GAB) to squish locusts and scorpions. He can do it because He has ALL POWER!
So when He says He gives you all power over the enemy, YOU'VE GOT IT!Matthew 28:18
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
So the question is...Luke 10:19
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
The answer is: You know! If you turn to Him, you can have His blessings right now! There will be plenty of corn and wine for you for your Father will see to it that the death angel, Apollyon, and his locust army Passes Over your house because you are His child and you now dwell in His vineyard where scorpions and locusts dare not go!Joel 2:14
Who knoweth if He will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?
