Ezekiel 25-32

25 - God condemns Ammon, Moab, Edom, and Philistia for gloating over Israel's demise.
26 - God prophesies Tyre fall at Babylon's hand.  Their music and trade will stop suddenly.
27 - The nations lament the end of the trade, listing all their wares.
28 - Tyre was strong and beautiful, in Eden.  But he called himself a god so God will cast him out of Eden and kill him.  Sidon will fall, too, so that no briers remain to harass Israel.
29-32 - Egypt will be destroyed, never again to rise as a strong empire.  A lament for her.
She will go down to Sheol, just like all the other empires and nations already there.

How this is about Jesus
He is given the nations to rule and strikes them with a rod of iron - Psalm 2; Rev. 2:27; 12:15; 19:15.
He saw Satan fall like lightning - Ezek. 28:12-17; Luke 10:18.

The power and glory of nations that Satan tempts Jesus with is described here.  It comes and goes, and God can take it away as a punishment.
