Thou Was Perfect
Ezekiel 28:13-15 (KJV) Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
These verses give us a unique and often unknown look at satan. Forget about everything you have heard describing the devil made famous in this world, like the horns, red suit, pitchfork, and tail. These verses present us with an illustration of a beautifully created being unlike any other we are familiar with in this world. Think, if you will, for a moment about the precious stones mentioned here that covered his outer appearance and how the light of God would shine upon them. This spectacle would generate such a lovely sight much more significant than any precious metals in this world created by humankind’s hands.
These verses tell us that satan is formed as a musical creature complete with pipes and tabrets. This description is something that no human can make sense of this side of eternity, for no person is created with this kind of innate musical potential. Not only was he beautiful, but he was also naturally harmonious and melodic.
Lastly, this scripture tells us that satan was perfect in thy ways. We are familiar with the imperfect nature of souls in this world. Satan was created as a perfect being.
Let this knowledge about satan before his fall impact your mind and soul. He was lovely to look at, musical to the ear, and perfect before his choice to fall into sin. After sin impacted his heart, satan is ugly, raucous, and highly imperfect and will remain ugly forever.
