This is the history of Lucifer, who was an angel of light and how he became satan, or the adversary and deceiver of everyone, the father of lies, and the enemy of Truth.
The Word of the LORD came to me (Ezekiel): "Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre (Lucifer, satan, the devil, all the same name for the same individual) and say to him: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says:
The Beginning -
" 'You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God (Genesis 1); every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared. You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you.
God made Lucifer perfect, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. God tells us that his job was as an anointed guardian cherub of the Lord God Almighty.
You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.
The fiery stones are around the altar of God’s temple. (Isaiah 6:6) God had place him at a most honored spot until wickedness was found in him.
The Middle -
Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned.
Violence filled Lucifer and he sinned. All sin is against God. (Against You, You only, have I sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, so that You are proved right when You speak and justified when You judge. Psalm 51:4)
The End -
So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.
God has all the power. No one else has any power on Everyone and everything has no power. God expelled Lucifer/satan from heaven.
Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor.
Lucifer became proud of what God did for him and accepted the gifts of looks and abilities as if it was owed to him and as if he earned them somehow. Lucifer saw himself as if he had power separate from God and was special on his own. That is what pride is, the lack of humility in knowing that God is the Only Good and Provider of Good.
Lucifer took the gifts God gave to him as if they were his own. Lucifer took the gifts of God as if he was owed them and his attitude was to glorify himself, not the Lord God Almighty. Pride was Lucifer's sin.
So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings. By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching. All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.' " Ezekiel 28:11-19
God, in His righteousness and power dispelled Lucifer from heaven. God spewed Lucifer/satan to the earth. Those watching, the other heavenly creatures and angelic hosts, were appalled at the transformation of Lucifer to satan. The choice of sin made the once beautiful cherub into a disgusting sight and brought him to a horrible end.
More facts about the history and future of the deceiver and enemy of every soul, even yours.
How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High." But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit. Isaiah 14:12-15
The seventy-two returned with joy and said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name." Jesus replied, "I saw satan fall like lightning from heaven. Luke 10:17,18
And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Revelation 20:10
But that doesn't have to be for you. God prepared eternal damnation for satan and his fallen angels, which are the other devils. ("Then He will say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.' Matthew 25:41) You who are human have a choice, a different choice! You can choose, as long as you have breath, you can choose to turn away from the enemy of you, the father of lies, the deceiver, which is the devil, and turn to the Living Lord God Almighty Who has prepared a SAFE WAY for you to come into His Presence, for Him to Lavish Abundant Love, Acceptance, Total Forgiveness, and Healing for You. "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him." Jn 3:17 God's Son is Jesus Christ. God wants to save you from the end which following the devil leads you to, hell. God want to save you through His Son Jesus Christ. And God is calling you to be His Child, for forever!
Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. Jn 1:12-14
"No one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him." In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again." "How can a man be born when he is old?" Nicodemus asked. "Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!"
Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he (or she) is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.' The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."
How can this be?" Nicodemus asked. "I tell you the truth, ... Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert (for people to see it and confess and turn away from their sins), so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the Name of God's one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. John 3:1-21 I want the Atonement
If you realize you have done evil, then turn to Jesus Christ and ask Him to put all of your evil deeds on His Cross, confess your sins aloud to Him, turn away from them in your heart, and ask to be Jesus' child and receive His Protection and Love, forever. No one is more powerful than the Lord God Almighty, and He wants you to come to Him!! Right NOW!
The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9
God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should change His mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19 Yes, God does keep His Word, and acts upon it trustworthily!
"Come now, let us reason together,"
"Lord God Almighty, You alone are holy, and I am not. You have asked me to come to You through Your only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, I know by faith that You love me. Increase my faith Lord God. You know me and see all of me. you know where I have been and what I have done. And you want me to come to You. I am a sinner. You know that I have done many wrong things before You. I have said wrong things, done wrong things, thought wrong things, and not said, done or thought things that I should have. I have done bad things against my family, my self and other people. I am very sorry for sinning against You, the Holy God. I ask for you to place all of my sins that I have ever committed onto the cross of Jesus Christ, so that I bear them no more.
Your Word declares that as far as the east is from the west You have removed my sins and You remember them no more. (Psalm 103:12, Isa 43:25, Heb 10:17) Thank You!! Lord God Almighty, fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I would live for You forever and always! Cover me with the Blood of Jesus Christ, break every curse that has been placed on me. Cover those cursing words and thoughts with the Atoning Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Fill me again with Your Holy Spirit and teach me Your Word, Your Wisdom, and continue to shower me with Your grace, fill me with Your peace and rejuvenate me with Your Love and Joy!! Please open my mind and heart to Your words in Your Bible. I love you. I praise you Lord Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ is Lord!! Amen!!
AS far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12
"I, even I, am He Who blots out your transgressions, for My own sake, and remembers your sins no more. Isaiah 43:25
Then He adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more." Hebrews 10:17
I want to be saved from the grip of satan, the devil. I want to be freed from him. Salvation. i want to be made brand new, a New Creation!!
