Lucifer 1 – Lucifer, Lucis, Lights, & Lies
Read Isaiah. 14:4-17, Ezekiel. 28:12-19, & Revelation. 12:1-9
In my college classes, my professors had us go back and reread passages multiple times, in different lessons. It cemented the teaching in my mind and revealed to me how all the Bible, when left together, is one giant thread of teaching. Stick with me as I refer back to passages at different times and trust the Bible to teach as only it can. As you read here, remember the lesson on Hollywood, Los Angeles, Dragons, and cigarettes. A lot of that material connects with and expands on this lesson. Note: Lucifer, in Isaiah 14, in Latin is… LUCIS. Just thought you would appreciate that. Also, “Lucifer” (Isaiah. 14:12) means light bearer; Satan means adversary, enemy, and accuser.
In our passages, we see Lucifer (Isaiah 14), Satan (Revelation 12), and an earthly king (Ezekiel 28) that is prideful and evil. But at the time of the writing of Ezekiel (some 1500+ years after Eden) king in Ezekiel 28… had been IN Eden, making it impossible for that king to BE a human! Yet another interesting fact!
Luciferians/New agers, have many beliefs: Lucifer is NOT Satan; Lucifer is the brother of Jesus Christ; Lucifer has the right to govern this earth; Lucifer is a good being, bringing true light to this earth (better see 2Corinthians 11:14; they have their own bible and refuse ours; Lucifer has all wisdom (remember Ezekiel. 28:14-15 here?). There are others, but we will work on those here. Can we first connect Lucifer (Isaiah 14) and Satan, and prove they are one? Remember, too, that Satan WANTS men to believe in HIS false deity, HIS words as truth, HIM as the heir of the possession of this earth, and the brother of Jesus… the good brother! Let’s connect the dots.
Now, is Satan, Lucifer, fallen from, or cast out of Heaven?Sounds simple to you and me, but remember, if you refuse the Bible, you refuse true wisdom, instruction, knowledge, and understanding. If we can prove this first, the rest comes easy! Isaiah14:12 says Lucifer fell from heaven. Now… Revelation 12:9. Satan, the dragon was CAST out of heaven. Now read Lucifer 10:18. JESUS, in a verse that proves His Deity, says HE SAW Satan fall from heaven as lightning. (Review Ezekiel 1:13-14, Daniel 10:6) Pretty clear stuff (see also 2Peter 2:4)! Lucifer WAS in heaven; AS was Satan. Lucifer was cast out or fell, and so was Satan. Lucifer was found with iniquity and pride in him, and likewise Satan. Now…. connect Job 1:4 (Satan killing Job’s kids, as allowed by God) with Ezekiel 28:7-17 & Daniel 2:31. Remember that lightning thing? Quite a Bible we have here! I wonder why New Agers (and the world) hate it? Light maybe?
Also, in Ezekiel 28:14-16, Satan (of whom this passage speaks) WAS a cherub, proving his origination in heaven… ALL fits Lucifer… Isaiah 14. This cherub in Ezekiel 28 is a chief angel. Note also the wisdom thing there AND the fact that Satan wants the world to worship and know HIS wisdom. Note also the pride in both Lucifer (Isaiah14) and Satan (Ezekiel 28) and the fact, in both passages, that he was cast down to the earth, And will be judged and sent into hell! Now read Revelation 20:10.
Who there was cast into hell? Satan. COULD God send one of his sons to hell? WOULD He? No! By the way, read 1John 3:1. And to that fact, how many sons DID God say He had? Read John 3:16. Jesus is the ONLY One said to be God in the flesh (Matthew 1:23, 2Corinthians 5:19-21, 1John 4:9-19, & 1Timothy 3:16 [love those 3:16 verses]). NO WHERE does the Bible EVER speak of Lucifer/Satan being ANY of these wonderful things.. only evil. And, Satan is NOT the bright and morning star (Revelation 22:16) Now…
Ezekiel 28:13 speaks of Satan, the cherub, as being “created.” See also 28:15 AND Hebrews 1:5 & 1:13 with it. Angels are created beings… NOT eternal OR God! And, while we’re here, JESUS CREATED them! Psalm 90:2, John 1:3, 1:10, Ephesians 3:9, Colossians 1:16-17, Hebrews 1:10-12, 3:3-4, & Revelation 4:11. See also John 8:56-28, too. Jesus was, and is, Deity. God. NEVER Created. Having neither beginning or ending of days (Hebrews 7:3 & 13:8). And, WHEN, EVER, did Satan refer to God The Father, as HIS father? God refers to Satan as the father of lies (John 8:44). GOD cannot lie (Titus 1:2– God, who cannot lie...) And, Jesus is the King of Peace (Hebrews 7:2), not the king of liars! SO, Lucifer IS not, and CANNOT BE Jesus’ brother! PERIOD! AND, if God would never send His Son to hell, which he wouldn’t, He would never want to destroy Himself, as He WILL Satan (see Ezekiel 28:16 AND Revelation 20:10 again). You can’t destroy that which is eternal! God would never destroy His Own Son! Add here, Matthew. 25:46. Do you see all the connections? And truth?
Now, WHEN did God EVER find iniquity in Jesus His Son? Never! God is holiness, and holy, and sinless (you MUST read James. 1:13 here) Jesus is holy, Satan is not, Lucifer for sure isn’t, and CANNOT be Jesus’ brother, or a God-son himself, for in him is iniquity, lies, temptations, and on and on! Read John 8:44, 2Peter 2:4, Exodus 15:11, & 1John 3:5-12. IN Him, Jesus is no what???
Lucifer, Satan, the red dragon, the Devil, that Wicked (2Thessolonians 2:7-8), accuser of the brethren, liar, murderer…. all the same. If people don’t believe that they: A. DON’T read or study the Bible. B. Don’t WANT to believe the Bible. C. WANT to believe a lie (see 2Thessalonians 2:11) Lucifer/Satan is the father of lies, and the lies of New Age and all other false religions are in him, and on him, and FROM him! NONE of them are from Jesus Christ. Satan NEVER brings anyone to God OR saves them, OR died TO save them. He is not eternal but created, and he is for sure, not God or the brother of Jesus Christ… Who was and IS God and Eternal! …..Satan/Lucifer was a created being, a cherub, and he will go into hell in the end. Satan sends man the spirit of antichrist (1John 4:3), Jesus sends us His Spirit, the Spirit of God, the HOLY Spirit (John. 14, 15, 16) The Son of God will not ever go into the lake of fire, AND IN FACT.. read finally Revelation 1:18, My, my. And by the way, Satan was not the one who opened (unsealed) that book in Revelation either… was he? My, my, MY! Now for one last clincher. Remember we were trying to connect Lucifer and Satan way back in the O.T. as being in heaven, then earth. Look at Job 1:6-7 & 2:1. Connect that with all the rest of this! By the way, to use the Job passage to teach that Satan/Lucifer was a son, on the level of Jesus, is wrongly dividing it. Yes, God speaks of the angels as His sons, but NEVER in the area of being eternal OR HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN Son, Jesus! ………
We’ll finish this in the next lesson.
