Cursed Dragon Story (Ezekiel 28)
Anointed Cherubim – angel & banner – God created a leader among angels. He was perfect in beauty, pure of heart. He was given wisdom, honor, and influence.
Pride’s Origin – dragon, crown, sword – The angel became prideful because of his wealth, power, and great skill in trade. He became wicked and violent.
Outcast Rebel – mountain, cloud, crown, dragon – Satan considered himself a god, so God cast him out of heaven. Kings and nations witnessed his downfall.
Tragic Aftermath – water, flame, chains – The nations were appalled at his transformation from angel to dragon. He is cursed forever, living in a deep, fiery pit.
