Lucifer 2 – Is Lucifer REALLY Satan?
Read Genesis 3:1-14 & Isaiah 27:1
I feel it is necessary to give one last intro lesson on the subject. I have read much material on this, both ways. Some detractors and they are “legion,” say that to hold the position that Lucifer became Satan is preposterous, unfounded, uneducated, inaccurate, and misleading. They say that the Bible in no way says he is. I believe they are wrong, and here is why, one last time.
First, if you wanted to hide, in plain sight, what better way to do it than to get folks to believe you are not who you are, AND get them to tell others that you aren’t? To get people to believe that you… are not you, and then to be able to act like the evil one, and get them to say it is the other guy? Remember, Satan is the counterfeiter of Jesus Christ, ANTI-Christ, a fake savior, a liar, deceiver, and murderer. And, what was the first thing he attacked in the garden? The Word of God; what God said… to a human! He changed it, said God really didn’t say what He said, called God a liar, and subtly lead her astray to BELIEVE that HE (Satan) was the good guy, when he obviously isn’t! And, (and I know you haven’t gotten far into this New Age series), don’t New Agers, come with some “hidden wisdom,” light, and extra-terrestrial knowledge? Sound like Genesis 3? Read now Ezekiel 28:4-17 & 2Corinthians 11:14. But naysayers will tell you that this is an improper and dishonest connection of scripture. Well, where did Satan come from… and where did Lucifer GO? Remember all the passages on “fell from Heaven?” Lucifer WAS a great cherub, of great office in Heaven. Even Michael (see Jude 9) would not stand up to him alone. Lucifer, by the way, was over Michael and Gabriel in Heaven, in office and power! I believe it is clear that when God threw him out. He also changed his name. NO LONGER that anointed cherub, with great office, but now the deceiver, liar, murderer, and arch enemy of the Son of God! No longer Lucifer, which was a wonderful, beautiful name, but Satan, enemy, destroyer, Belial, devil, dragon, evil one, father of lies, accuser, Abandon, adversary, Apollyon, Beelzebub, lawless one, leviathan, man of sin, tempter, wicked one, and thief. I submit, Lucifer was his Heavenly name, and Satan and these others are his fallen earthly name! (Satan: Opponent; adversary; accuser; devil. OT & NT. Devil being Diabolus, (diabolical), devil, slanderer)
Next, Lucifer was the most powerful angel in heaven…. before he fell. The anointed cherub who covered (Ezekiel 28:14) VERY powerful. WHERE did he go… if he is not Satan? WHEN did Satan fall to this earth from Heaven, why, and why is his name not mentioned but only IN this earth?
I would also hasten to note that those who refuse to see that Lucifer IS Satan, fuel the teaching of New Age and Luciferians, that Lucifer is a good angel and thus help the cause of Satan himself! Tell em you ain’t you… and get folks to believe it! Compare Isaiah 14:12-20 to Ezekiel 28:11-19 & Revelation 12:7-10, AND Revelation 20:3. Same personality. Same deceiving of the nations. Some family ties never die! No scholar in his right mind can rightly argue that Ezekiel 28 is not the Satan of Revelation, and I say he’s the Lucifer of Isaiah 14. Now…..
Someone fell… because of sin! Who does Isaiah say fell? Lucifer. Who does Jesus say He saw fall (Luke 10:18)? By the way, look at Revelation 9:1-11. Fallen angel… a star? Hold that thought. I also submit that as the anointed cherub who covered (Ezekiel 28:14) he was covering and guarding the holiness of God and anyone, or anything that was not absolutely holy would die in that presence! Finish this thought with Ezekiel 28:15.
Finally, let’s go back to our opening texts. Isaiah 27:1 has leviathan, piercing serpent, crooked serpent, and dragon. What creature spoke to Eve in Genesis 3? A subtle (cunning, crafty, in a bad way) serpent. What did he do? Lied to her. Attacked God’s Word. Impugned God’s integrity. Got himself worship. Brought false light. Light? Isn’t part of the meaning of Lucifer… light bearer? Brightness? Sure is. What do New Agers, who ARE Luciferians (admittedly), say they have for this world? Light! Where do they say they got it? From some extra-terrestrial being or a universal spirit. 2Corinthians 11:14… Satan? Transforms into an “angel of …. light?” False teaching!!! Are they deceived? Are they trying to bring in their “peace child” who is Satan, in a man… the Antichrist? You teach the scriptures by comparing scripture with scripture, letting scripture teach as only it can, and connecting those scriptures together INTO right teaching… and true light! (Isaiah 28:10 & 1Corinthians 2:13)(See also Revelation 12:12 & 13:1– sea; Isaiah 27:1– sea? Hmmm) Now back to Isaiah 27:1 again.
Piercing what? Serpent. Leviathan in Arabic is a twisted animal. Here God says it is a serpent. (By the way, there is a constellation that is said to be a dragon! Constellation… dragon… stars?) Piercing is also the word “fugitive.” From where? Heaven! It comes from a root word meaning to bolt or flee suddenly. Serpent is simply from the word snake. But this one is a BIG one! A dragon maybe? Is that making a verse fit my own designs? Read on…
The fact that Isaiah uses the term “in that day” is without debate speaking of an end-times event. Sometimes it is an event in the near future, but almost always it is end times. I ask again if leviathan is a crocodile, why would God punish a crocodile… in the end of the world… or ANY time for that matter? God puts it all together for us… IF we will take the time to study it out. WOW, what a Bible!!!
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. I see no other explanation of who Satan was, other than Lucifer. …..I believe Luke 10:18, Isaiah 14, 27:1, Ezekiel 28, and Revelation 12, with the many others, are clear. To say otherwise, I believe is to help carry on the lie that Lucifer is not a real bad angel… and Satan! What better way to cover yourself than to say you are not you and get others to teach it, while you really ARE you, and do things they attribute to someone else? An enigma wrapped up in a mystery, and folded into a lie, by the master liar! Isaiah 27:1 In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. Gen. 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. There’s STILL a snake in the garden! Hisssssssssss.
