Some commentators see the fall of Satan in Ezekiel 28, and some see the fall of Adam. Regardless, the them of this section is that pride goes before a fall. Ezekiel was preaching a prophecy against Tyre, but he didn't preach it to Tyre, he preached it to the Israelites. They were supposed to learn about the dangers and temptations of pride by what happens to Tyre. Israel's pride, not Tyre's, is the point. Our pride is the point.
A willingness to be humble is required in order to obtain salvation.
Thankfully, Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.
As my Life Application Bible puts it....
As the way, Jesus is our path to the Father. As the truth, he is the reality of all God's promises. As the life, he joins his divine life to ours, both now and eternally. Jesus is, in truth, the only living way to the Father.
