Pamphlet 1967 kc 12-3
It is written that the whole world including most Christians shall believe Satan when he comes to earth claiming he is Christ!
We could go on and on with the simplicity and beauty of these things God has shown us for our understanding. For instance, the tables of the covenant, the 10 Commandments, are also contained in the Ark of the Covenant. Yes, both Truth and Justice are contained in Ark of the Covenant for He is the King of kings and Lord of lords from which all truth and justice flow!
Note: Occasionally we still read articles and see movies about people trying to locate the Ark of the Covenant. However, trying to find the Ark of Covenant is as futile as trying to find the body of Moses, for God took them both away. To that end, if you read the last verse of Rev. 11 you will find out where that Ark is located at present.
The phrase Paul uses, "of which we cannot now speak particularly", means "it is not now convenient to speak about these things". In other words, Paul is also saying there is much to be said concerning these things but it is not within the scope of his teaching regarding the comparison of the two tabernacles and two covenants to go into great detail and elaborate upon the significance of each one. So you will just have to labor on your own and gather in your own "manna" and eat it! And in doing your due diligence concerning the "cherubims of glory" shadowing (which means overshadowing) the mercyseat, the seat of Christ, remember to include one of the original cherubims given the awesome responsibility by God Himself to protect and uphold the truth and justice which flows from that mercyseat. You will find it written of in the 28th chapter of Ezekiel.Hebrews 9:5
And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.
Here's a quick overview:
This speaks of Satan as the following verses will document. Then too, the name "Tyrus" means "rock" in Hebrew. However, this rock is not our Rock (Deut. 32:31)!Ezekiel 28:12-19
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.
Satan is also a created son of God. However, he has been "judged" to be the first son who will perish in the lake of fire. Thus he is called the "son of perdition", the son who will perish. Also, if you go to Exodus chapter 39 you will find that the "stones" spoken of in this verse that Satan wore (which is what "covered with" means) match stone for stone those worn on the breastplate of the Levite Priests.In other words, Satan was once a great spiritual leader of our people. Actually, he still is today... only that which he feeds our people is not "manna" but bread cakes filled with "dung" (see Ezek. 4:9-17). 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.
There you have it! Satan was once anointed, appointed by God, to cover the mercyseat and uphold truth and justice and he walked not "to and fro" at this time but rather walked "up and down" as in "straight up and down" in the stones of fire with the truth from the altar of God. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
You can read what this iniquity found in him was in Isa. 14. He wanted to elevate himself, to ascend on high and sit on the mercyseat, i.e. ascend to the throne of God and be like God.So he, Satan, started his own church and political party! Take a look around my friend, for there is nothing new under the sun, especially at the close of this earth age in comparison to the close of the last. (In fact, you will even find the "trumpets" "sounding the alarm" and warning our people of the impending desolation to come, the "tohu va bohu" of Gen. 1:2. See Jeremiah 4:21-22 "How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?  For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge." Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
God is going to destroy Satan from the midst of His children, who are those stones of fire represented by the 12 fiery stones of the Levite breastplate. Of course, Satan has his own stones (the kenites/descendants of Cain) in this earth age which can be numerated, as in traced, as per Rev. 13:18. Do you know who they are (see Rev. 2:9 & 3:9)? Those who belong to the two churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia know and teach who the kenites are and those two churches are the only two with whom Christ found no fault. That ought to tell you something!!!!! 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.
Now here is what happened to pretty boy in the first earth age:
 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.
 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.
The point is, however, that it is written that Satan, that cherubim who
once covered the mercyseat, shall come again as the spurious messiah before
Jesus Christ returns and take an earthly seat upon the ark, i.e. sit in
the temple of God claiming to be God (2 Thes. 2). And
you know what? It is written that the whole world including most Christians
shall believe him to be so!
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
