So Deborah is asking was Lucifer also the Minister of Music in Heaven when he was created? Well, that is a really great question, Deborah, and I love it because this has actually been something that has been, I want to say a debate, a topic of debate, but there’s not like a clear scripture that says blatantly that Satan was the Minister of Music in Heaven when he was created. However, there is a verse that does indicate that he definitely had musical ability that was superior or exceptional than other creation. And you see this in the book of Ezekiel, chapter 28 in verse 13. So we’ll go ahead and go there.

Speaker 1

Just to answer your question from the Bible. This is the closest answer I think we can give you from the Bible, because this is Bible ask, so we want to make sure everything we answer is from God’s word. So in Ezekiel chapter 28, verse 13, it says you were in Eden. So speaking of Lucifer and some people debate, oh, this is actually the King of Tire, this is not Lucifer. But what I believe the Bible is doing here is making a parallel which is comparing the King of Tire in how his pride basically was his destruction.

Speaker 1

His pride and his beauty was a form of his destruction and it parallels him to Satan. So just to give you a prequel to this verse. So it’s saying in verse 13, you were in Eden, the garden of God. So obviously the King of Tire could not have been in Eden, this would have been Lucifer or who became Satan. It says you were in Eden, the Garden of God.

Speaker 1

Every precious stone was your covering the sardius topaz and diamond barrel onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and emerald with gold. So it’s saying the what how Lucifer was dressed was in these very precious stones which just shined light as well as gold, which also reflects light as well because that was his purpose, was to reflect light, the light of God. And then it says the workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created. And so this is the key where people say this is what Lucifer was made for. It says your timbrel, which is a musical instrument and your an like an organ were created.

Speaker 1

And then this is the new King James version were prepared for you on the day you were created. I almost like the way that the regular King James version puts it. And this is where people have kind of debated know Lucifer was created in a certain way with it doesn’t say that the timbrels and pipes were created for you in the King James version. It actually says the workmanship of your tablets and your pipes was prepared in you in the day you were created. So some actually believe that Satan or Lucifer was initially created with musical instruments inside of his being.

Speaker 1

That it was almost as if he was built like with a pipe organ and timbrels or instruments within his body. Within the body, he was created itself. And so this is where people believe, well, he was definitely an angel that was created specifically for the gift of music or to praise God and worship in God’s sanctuary. Because if you keep reading in that chapter, it talks about how he was the covering cherub. We know that the covering cherub is in the most holy place in the sanctuary.

Speaker 1

There’s two cherubs, or high exalted types of angels, and there’s only two facing each other, and they basically shield themselves from the glory of God. There would be the two highest ranking angels in heaven, and so Lucifer would have been one of these angels. However, because of his pride, he was so proud of his beauty and the gifts that God had created in him that’s led to his fall. So to answer your question, specifically, was Lucifer the minister of music in heaven? Possibly.

Speaker 1

However, the bible doesn’t specifically say that, but he definitely had a special gift for music that was created just for him. And so it was something very special. So that would be my answer to you. I think that’s the best biblical answer I can give.
