here is the deal. If you want the cheap, non inspired version of this answer go to the lotto one. You get what you put into this kind of thing. In order to really know TRUTH especially in these days, you gotta do the work and read the Word. It will be worth it. If you are too busy, then go read elsewhere. I am ok with that.
Eze 28:1 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 28:2 Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, So says the Lord Jehovah, Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods, in the heart of the seas; yet you are a man, and not God, though you give your heart as the heart of gods.
Eze 28:3 Behold, you are wiser than Daniel. Every one of the secret things are not hidden to you.
Eze 28:4 With your wisdom and with your understanding you have made riches for yourself, and have worked gold and silver into your treasuries.
Eze 28:5 By your great wisdom, by your trade you have multiplied your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches.
Eze 28:6 So the Lord Jehovah says this: Because you have given your heart as the heart of gods,
Eze 28:7 behold, so I will bring on you awesome strangers of the nations. And they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom and will defile your splendor.
Eze 28:8 They will cause you to go down to the Pit, and you shall die the deaths of the slain in the heart of the seas.
Eze 28:9 Saying, do you say, I am of the gods before him who strikes you? But you are a man, and not God, in the hands of him who pierces you.
Eze 28:10 You shall die the deaths of the uncircumcised, by the hand of strangers. For I have spoken, says the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 28:11 And the Word of Jehovah was to me, saying,
Eze 28:12 Son of man, lift up a lament over the king of Tyre, and say to him, So says the Lord Jehovah: You seal the measure, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
Eze 28:13 You have been in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was your covering; the ruby, the topaz, and the jasper, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the turquoise, and the carbuncle, and gold; the workmanship of your tambourines and of your flutes in you. In the day you were created, they were prepared.
Eze 28:14 You were the anointed cherub that covers, and I had put you in the holy heights of God, where you were. You walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Eze 28:15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, until iniquity was found in you.
Eze 28:16 By the multitude of your trade, they filled your midst with violence, and you sinned. So I cast you defiled from the height of God, and I destroyed you, O covering cherub, from among the stones of fire.
Eze 28:17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. I have cast you to the ground. I will put you before kings, that they may see you.
Eze 28:18 By the host of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your trade, you have defiled your holy places. So I brought a fire from your midst and it shall devour you, and I will give you for ashes on the earth in the sight of all who see you.
Eze 28:19 All who know you among the peoples shall be appalled at you. You shall be terrors, and you will not be forever.
So this is not a man born of a woman, this is a cherub created by the Elohim to cover, or attend the throne, to be a grabber, one that keeps people from doing things they should not.
A primitive root; properly to entwine as a screen; by implication to fence in, cover over, (figuratively) protect: – cover, defence, defend, hedge in, join together, set, shut up.
the protector became the very thing we need to be protected from.
Where else is anything written about this one? Daniel.
Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will. And he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god; he shall even speak marvelous things against the God of gods and shall prosper until the fury is completed. For that which is decreed shall be done.
Dan 11:37 He shall not regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women; yea, he will not come to any god. For he shall magnify himself above all.
Dan 11:38 But in his place he shall honor the god of forces, and he shall honor a god whom his fathers did not know, with gold and silver and with precious stones, and desirable things.
Dan 11:39 And he shall act in the strongholds of the fortresses with a foreign god, whom he shall acknowledge. He shall multiply in glory, and he shall cause them to rule over many and shall divide the land for a price.
Dan 11:40 And at the end time, the king of the south will engage in butting with him. And the king of the north shall come against him like a tempest, with chariots and with horsemen and with many ships. And he shall go into the lands and shall overflow and pass over.

Dan 11:42 And his hand will stretch out against the lands, and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

Dan 11:45 And he shall plant his palace tents between the seas, in the glorious holy mountain. Yet he shall come to his end, and there is not a helper for him.
The final battle, when all those from all the nations will come against this antichrist who has put himself in the place where GOD should have been all along.
Where is that? It is in the heart of men. How is he doing that? By teaching men his traditions, feasts and doctrines, namely DO WHAT YOU WILL, or, “Jesus freed us from keeping the Laws of YHWH.”
If you read all this and wonder why I am trying to teach you, then know it is not me,I cannot teach anyone anything. It is from Paul, someone almost everyone can agree knew the Word. (Remember tho, Paul only had the OT scriptures)
2Th 2:3 Do not let anyone deceive you in any way, because that Day will not come unless first comes the falling away, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
2Th 2:4 the one opposing and exalting himself over everything being called God, or object of worship, so as for him “to sit in the temple of God” as God, setting forth himself, that he is God. Dan. 11:36; Eze. 28:2
