Ezekiel 28:19 (KJV) They Could Have Been

Ezekiel 28:19 (KJV)
All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
There are at least three ways to understand verses 11-19:
  • Literally- as a judgment against the king of Tyre
  • Figuratively-as a judgment against spiritual Babylon of the future 
  • Prophetically- as a judgment against Satan
Though there are likely applications for all three in the passage I believe the most compelling is of Satan. It is difficult to understand the description as of anyone but the Devil.
That said, the final judgment fascinates my attention today. We know that Satan, as is true of every living soul, never ceases to exist. Rather he suffers in the blackness and torments of the Lake of Fire forever.
Eternal torments of the lost are horrific to say the least. One description of that horror is forever being as not being anymore. The lost in hell will always know that they could have been, but they aren’t.
And it is all because they rejected Jesus Christ.
