And let’s go ahead and get our next question up. Okay, so MXO is asking, who is Lucifer, the fallen angel?
Yes. I love questions like this. So who is Lucifer? So he’s referring to Isaiah four, which is I believe is that probably the only time I think that Lucifer really used. And it reads, how are you fallen from heaven, o Lucifer, son of the morning, how are you cut down to the ground, you who weaken the nations? For you have said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. I will also sit on the mount of congregation of the fathers. It keeps going, going. I, I’m going to be basically bigger and better than God. So here we’re shown that Lucifer, the name, which means light bearer, is a person who is challenging God, wanting to be in the position and place of God. But he is not God. As it starts off, he says he’s fallen from heaven. He is not a celestial being allowed to be there anymore. He says, but you are cast out of the grave like an abominable branch, like the garment of those who are slain. It keeps going and prophesying that there’s going to be a destruction brought about against this person.
And if you look in Revelation twelve, you might see a parallel to this person. Revelation twelve, start at verse seven. It says, and war broke out in heaven. So there’s a conflict in Heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. So there’s this dispute, what are they fighting over? But they did not prevail the dragon and his angels, nor was any place found for them in Heaven any longer. Oh, so these people are now cast out of heaven, fallen from heaven. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old referring back to Eden, the snake that deceiver of Eve called the devil and Satan. So what we’re seeing here is Lucifer the same as Satan. These aren’t necessarily his real name. We might not know his real name, just like Michael actually is referring to Jesus, who is Yahweh, who is Elohim. These are more like titles, they’re descriptions, and often in the Bible that name is telling you about that person more than just necessarily what their identity is. So don’t get caught up on what’s the name of Lucifer, Satan. These are titles they’re telling us about this person.
Satan. Satan the enemy. He’s the accuser. He’s the one who’s just a problem maker who’s raging war against God. And you also might want to check out Ezekiel 28, where it first refers to the person as the King of Tyre. But as you go through and you read it, it’s talking about this covering Cherub, who was very close to God, who then iniquity one day was found within in him. He’s the source of sin and he then starts tainting all of heaven and is cast doubt and will be destroyed someday. This is consistent with John 844 where Jesus talking of the Pharisees, says, you are of your father the devil and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources for he is a liar and the father of it. Satan is the originator of all sin. He was the deceiver at the beginning and we were just talking about how there’s so much deception in these last times. Satan is running around like a roaring lion trying to devour prey and deception is one of his main techniques.
He’s trying to lead us astray, trying to make us think the wrong things, be the wrong type of person, be angry at people rather than come together in peace and love. He is at the root of all the problems we have right now. And we have to decide, though, are we wanting to be a part of that system, Satan system, or do we want to enter in and be a citizen of God’s kingdom? Because the two follow two totally different rules and we could go on and on, but yeah, satan, Lucifer, all the same, the fallen angel originating sin.
Amen. I know whenever I think of that verse about Satan in Ezekiel 28, I know it starts with the King of Tyre. And there’s been a lot of people that say, oh, this is not talking about Satan, it’s talking about the King of Tyre. You can’t say that this is talking about Satan, but the thing that it’s doing is it’s paralleling the King of Tyre to Satan. It’s talking about because the King of Tyre was full of pride, he followed the path of Satan, which was that Satan was full of pride and because of his pride, it led to his destruction. So, yeah, I totally agree with you on that. And, yeah, just the way Satan works is he wants us full of hate, anger in these things, whereas God wants us to be full of his spirit, which is love.
Yeah. And Ezekiel 28, it outright says you were in Eden.
The King of Tire, when this was rated by Ezekiel had not been in Eden.
Exactly. He was in Tire.For full episode:
