Establishing people in the Heart of God in Worship, the Principles of Sonship and Maturity.
11 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
12 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.
TYRUS; Strong’s H6865 – Tsor tsōre
Tyre or Tyrus = “a rock”
1) the Phoenician city on the Mediterranean coast
Tzaddi; a fish hook = desire, need, catch, that which has control Represented by the #90 which speaks of Freedom.
Resh: head, leader, person, =highest Represented by the #200 which speaks of insufficiency.
1 Samuel 25:37
37 But in the morning, when the wine was gone out of Nabal, and his wife told him these things, his heart died within him and he became [paralyzed, helpless as] a stone.
TYrus speaks of a rock which also represents the heart of carnal man. One whose heart is turned into stone, one who is operating in the flesh.
Tzaddi tells the story of a fish like hook, the type of hook that was used to rip away the flesh of Jesus as he was beaten for our freedom. Resh makes known the head who is God that have subjected this same man in all his carnality to a promise and a hope that is beyond him, bringing him to the reality of his insufficiency and his heart of stone that can be turned into a heart of flesh where he can write his word upon.
Flesh is needed to build the Kingdom of God but the purpose of the flesh is not to occupy but for service only. King Hiram offered his service and alliance to King David in the building of the temple but he himself was not made to dwell in that temple.
The Prophet Ezekiel received a word from the Lord concerning the King of Tyrus. This King of Tyrus was not a spirit but a man just as you and me. Tyrus was one of the four major cities in Lebanon as we know it today. This was the Phoenician city on the Mediterranean coast that was governed or ruled by a man, a physical man just as you and me. This King, or ruler as we know him to be was an all carnal King.
According to the Bible, was the Phoenician King of Tyre. He reigned from 980 BC to 947 BC, succeeding his father, Abibaal. Hiram was succeeded as king of Tyre by his son Baal-Eser I.
Known also as “Huram” and “Horam”. Hiram was the King of Tyre in the time of King David and King Solomon. While he was politically allied with David, Hiram’s workmen helped David’s people to build David’s palace in Jerusalem, and then after Solomon succeeded his Father David as King of Israel. Hiram’s workers also participated in the building of the first temple. Much of the fine cedar for both the palace and the temple came from Tyre Lebanon.
Tyre is an ancient Phoenician seaport city. It was located on the Mediterranean coast in the area that is today southern Lebanon. Its modern name is Sur, which in the time of King Solomon was celebrated as the residence of King Hiram, to whom that monarch and his father David were indebted fro great assistance in the construction of the Temple at Jerusalem. Tyre was distant from Jerusalem about one hundred and twenty miles by sea and was thirty miles nearer by land. An intercourse between the two cities and their respective monarchs was therefore easily cultivated. The inhabitants of Tyre were distinguished for their skill artificers, especially as workers in brass and other metals; and is said to have been a principal seat of that skilful body of architects known as the Dionysian Fraternity.
Arch of Triumph in Tyre was originally founded on an island and the adjacent mainland, probably as a colony of Sidon (modern name Sayda). Sidon was the oldest Phoenician city, but Tyre would eventually exceed Sidon in fame and prosperity.
According to one ancient account, Tyrian merchants were the first who ventured to navigate the Medeterranean waters; and they founded their colonies on the coasts and neighboring islands of the Aegean Sea, in Greece, on the northern coasts of Africa, at Carthage and other places, in Sicily and Corsicam in Spain at Tartessus, and even beyond the pillars of Hercules at Gadeira. Tyre became a grand city, as evidence today by the remains of its Arch of Triumph.
In the time of King David, the Israelites and Tyrians were on friendly terms; King Hiram of Tyre sent cedar lumber, carpenters, and stonemasons to help David build his palace in Jerusalem Palestine (2 Samuel 5:11) Later, when Solomonsucceeded his father David as King, King Hiram continued his alliance with palestine. All of the cedar and pine for the original Temple in Jerusalemcame from Tyre (1 Kings 5:1-10)
Tyre consisted of two sections, a fortress on the mainland and the main city which was constructed on a small island about 1,000 yards/meters from the shore. This arrangement provided it with good defensive capability. It witstood a siege by King Shalmaneser of Assyria for 5 years during the time of the fall of the northern kingdom of Palestine in 721BC, and another by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon for 13 years at the time of the fall of the southern kingdom of Judah in 586BC, It eventually did fall to Greek warlord Alexander the great who built a causeway out to the island in 332BC.
The above declares who this King of Tyre was, a son of Adam, a man who was the express image of his father Adam and inherited all that Adam was.
44 You are of your father, the devil, and it is your will to practice the lusts and gratify the desires [which are characteristic] of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false.
33 But turning around [His back to Peter] and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, Get behind Me, Satan! For you do not have a mind [a]intent on promoting what God wills, but what pleases men [you are not on God’s side, but that of men].
13 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.
Just as Jesus said to Peter “get thee behind me Satan” knowing that Peter was not Satan but was influences by Satan yet he directed his words to Peter and called him Satan.
So, when God was addressing Ezekiel concerning this King of Tyrus he identified this King as a man, one who was influenced by his father Adam, one who bear the mind of Adam, one who walked in the spirit of Adam who was in the garden of God. All of the stones or precious gem stones which represents the very nature and character of God covered this man Adam.

14 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.
15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
16 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.

When we read about Cherubim we understand that they only exist where the presence of God is. The hand of God has wrought a miraculous work of redemption, he who is the head of all things “God” is processing man through the course of his insufficiency. Man who is restless and fights against all that is God has been given hope through the fastening of Jesus to the Cross which will bring an end to the Adamic nature that is ruling our lives. We have been called and chosen by God to be vessels of honor and temples of the Holy Ghost. We are being prepared to be inhabited by God; he is preparing a witness in us that will give us a testimony. Every time we encounter the word Cherub we interpret that to be a higher order of angels. I want to submit to you that the position of Cherub was temporarily held by angels until the man child grows up and can take his rightful place in carrying and guarding the glory of God.
10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.
In Ezekiel chapter one we see the four living creatures with four faces;
14 And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
In Ezekiel chapter ten we see the four faces again;
Something happened in the process of God making a man in his express image. The Ox of chapter one grew up and was transformed into a cherub, the Ox who is a servant who is a son who is the heir that is Lord of all.
4 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
See, an Ox speaks of a servant, we also see above that that servant is also an heir and a child. The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet “alef” speaks of an Ox which is represented by the #1 which speaks of God. To break this down very simple, it is the story of man becoming one with God in the express image of our Father. Jesus said “when you see me you see my father” for I and my father are one. So this Ox or this servant of child when he grows up into a full grown son he will become a cherub.
John 14 :1-3
14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
In talking about the Ox who is a servant becoming a Cherub through servant-hood and growing up, an eye opening truth about the mansions of God. Jesus while he was on earth in a physical body could have only operated within the parameters of his human body. Based on what we have just understood it was imperative for Jesus to put on his glorified body which was unlimited by place and time. So Jesus left the carnal realm and entered into the realm of the incorruptible where he is today being one with the Father. He is also within us in the person of the Holy Ghost. While he was in his earthly body he could not have dwelt in us, so in this process of bringing forth the man-child, he left the carnal realm and took residence within us as the temples of the Holy Ghost and is working in us from the inside out transforming and changing us so that he could fully come within us so he could receive us unto himself. For he said, where he is we will also be.
So hear me mansions of God, yes, I called all you saints of the highest God mansions. You are God’s building and tabernacle, you are God’s temple and dwelling place, a city set on a hill cannot be hidden for you will be seen and heard of all the nations of the world and they will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
