Wounded, wicked prince of Israel, whose evil days shall end
Ezekiel 21:25 -
And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
In Paul's letter to the Hebrew Paul writes that the Levites came from the loins of Abraham. We as believers of Jesus Christ become sons of Abraham. We also as believers are called to be Priest and as a Church are called to be set apart from this world, thus we represent the Levites, who we set apart for the works of the Tabernacle.
When God saw Abram He saw us in Abram and changed his name to Abraham. We did not exist in body but yet the Lord could see us in Abraham.
When Jesus said we need to be born again to enter Heaven it did not mean physically born but meant where our spirit and soul gets attached too. Are we attached to this world or to Jesus Christ through Whom the Kingdom of God comes?
Also with Satan, when evil came in him and when the other angels connected to him and were thrown out of Heaven, they are referred to also as Satan even though Satan is bound in Hell. That is the reason the word is plural in most places in the Bible.
Coming to today's message which is regarding the 'wounded wicked prince of Israel'. We know the name Israel is given to people of God yet we see the word 'wicked' attached to it. It is similar to the word 'fallen' being attached to some (1/3) angels who fell with Satan.
When Jesus spoke of the antichrist no doubt it refers to that one person who will be man incarnated with evil, who will come during the end days when the Satan will be set free; it also refers to all the other souls that are attached to this soul. This is the reason John even commented that the spirit of antichrist was already present during his time.
The Lord uses to term 'prince of Israel' to the antichrist here because the profile the antichrist carries as representative (ruler) of the children of God. People do not realize that there are a whole series of antichrist since ages of whom the chapter of Ezekiel writes as one who stands at the crossroad between sons of Ammon (means tribal) and of fortified Jerusalem (Zion), which means one that stands between worldly road and Heavenly road. We also learned before that a person standing at crossroads is rebuked by God for he becomes the cause of others to fall.
The word Rabbah means 'great' so this individual(s) is one who thinks or calls himself great among the people of God. In the book of Daniel the ruler of the little horn that is among the 10 horns is also put as a man who has great eyes and mouth which blasphemes God.
We know from history the Roman Empire split into 10 of these the Vatican was the smallest kingdom and the head of the Vatican is the Pope who is also addressed as Emperor of Romans (and other nations). It was due to the Vatican 3 of the 10 kingdoms ceased to exist. We know from ages the Popes have times again and again blasphemed God by giving titles due to the Lord unto themselves. They have enlarged themselves as having authority not only on earth but also over hell and Heaven.
When I used to be a Catholic and use to read about people calling the Pope an antichrist and that the last Pope is going to be the antichrist; I use to think these people were mad and they themselves were one. It was only later, as the Word was unfolded by the Lord unto me that I realized how true it was.
In the kingdom of God a person who kills the body is a lesser criminal than the one who kills the soul. These people, who wear white robes, (as Jesus called them dead tombs), do not realize due to their hardened hearts are causes of spiritual deaths of millions of God's people. I had written in my previous mails that many among them know in their hearts what they are doing is wrong yet out of fear of their superiors do not open their mouths.
God instructs to open battering rams against this institute both from Zion and from worldly people. The world has already started battering this institute and now we too need to reveal the truth and bring the house down.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, it is your Word that protects us from the deceiving ways of the deceiver. Your Word is light and exposed things which are in the dark. Lord, we intercede for those who entrapped by this institute that they do not harden their hearts and open their eyes to the truth and be saved...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

18 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,
19 Also, thou son of man, appoint thee two ways, that the sword of the king of Babylon may come: both twain shall come forth out of one land: and choose thou a place, choose it at the head of the way to the city.
20 Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the Ammonites, and to Judah in Jerusalem the defenced.
21 For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver.
22 At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appoint captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint battering rams against the gates, to cast a mount, and to build a fort.
23 And it shall be unto them as a false divination in their sight, to them that have sworn oaths: but he will call to remembrance the iniquity, that they may be taken.
24 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance, ye shall be taken with the hand.
25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
26 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.
27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.
28 And thou, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say thou, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume because of the glittering:
29 Whiles they see vanity unto thee, whiles they divine a lie unto thee, to bring thee upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity shall have an end.
30 Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge thee in the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy nativity.
31 And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy.
32 Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it.
7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
1 John 2:18 (text added for readability have been put in [ ])
18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would [no doubt] have continued with us: but [they went out], that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca [meaning one who will go to hell or not be saved], shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool [means godless or having a evil spirit], shall be in danger of hell fire.
