To locate the beginning of Lucifer, we resort to the Old Testimony. In the Hebrew, the name Lucifer is equated from the Hebrew word “helel,” which indicates illumination. This classification, describing Lucifer, is the making of the “morning star” or “bright star” which exists in Isaiah. “12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” The context of this flow is a recommendation to the king of Babylon as provided in his satisfaction, natural beauty as well as loss. It is to the power behind the bad Babylonian king that this is in fact resolved. No temporal king would certainly assert that his throne was over that of God or that he resembled one of the most High. The power behind the bad Babylonian king is Lucifer, Child of the Early morning. Lucifer is simply an additional name for Satan, that as head of the bad world-system is the actual, though undetectable, power behind the succeeding leaders of Tire, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, as well as all of those bad leaders that we have actually seen reoccured in the background of the globe. This flow exceeds human background as well as notes the start of wrong in deep space as well as the really loss of Satan in the immaculate, sinless rounds prior to the production of guy.
We likewise see this exact same theme in Ezekiel: “Moreover the word of the LORD came to me: Mortal, raise a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord GOD: You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, carnelian, chrysolite, and moonstone, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald; and worked in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created they were prepared. With an anointed cherub as guardian I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked among the stones of fire. You were blameless in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you. In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned; so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God, and the guardian cherub drove you out from among the stones of fire. Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you. By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade, you profaned your sanctuaries. So I brought out fire from within you; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all who saw you. All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more forever” (Ezekiel 28: 11-19). This flow appears to be dealt with to the “king of Tyre.” Actually, it exceeds the king to the one that lags the bad king of Tire. This flow likewise has far and wide prediction concerning Lucifer/Satan due to the fact that although his last end is currently certain, it has actually not taken place yet as well as it happens after the last judgment (Discovery 20:7-10). In both the Isaiah flow as well as the Ezekiel flow, the depiction is not of Lucifer/Satan as restricted to his very own individual yet his operating in as well as the consummating of his strategies with earthly kings as well as leaders that require to themselves magnificent honors as well as that, whether they in fact recognize this or otherwise, policy in the spirit as well as under the objectives of Satan. “For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6: 12). Satan is the principality behind the powers of this corrupt globe system. Notification the declaration that is given up the flow in Ezekiel, “the anointed cherub.” These declarations can never ever put on a human king yet, they do put on Lucifer/Satan that lags the human king. This angel is the greatest animal the LORD ever before produced. The LORD claims of him, “You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.” Satan was the best animal God ever before produced. Nothing else angel, nothing else being was produced with the knowledge that God provided to this animal. God claims that this production is”perfect in beauty.”
