IS LUCIFER A BASTARD ? (I)
In the beginning of time account of Genesis chapter one verse one, billions and maybe hundreds of billions of years ago, a masterpiece of an externality of beauty called Lucifer was brought into being, personally, by the Light: the Creator. This act of creating individuals personally by God is what makes angels ‘sons of God’. They received an original excellency, truth, holiness, purity, as well as dignity (Jude 6). Lucifer was the head of the angelic host as well as the leader of the praise and worship of the Most High. He is also the ‘light bearer’ as his name, Lucifer, means. Lucifer lost his estate when he willed (outside God’s dictum) to ascend into heaven, exalt his throne above the stars of God, and to sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north to receive a deified worship.
Lucifer, the light bearer
Many times when a prophet comes under the afflatus, the spirit of prophecy veers him off the obvious to a hidden topic. A classic instance is found in, “12) Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 13) 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. 14) 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. 15) Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee” Ezekiel 28:12-15. In Phoenicia, East of the Mediterranean, 20 miles South of Sidon is situated Tyre or Tyrus and the lamentation goes beyond that of her ruler. Even if the twelfth verse description fits the king of Tyrus, was he in Eden the garden of God? Did he have the adornment of the precious stones of sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold? Could he boast of the workmanship of tabrets and pipes prepared in him in the day that he was created like Lucifer? Definitely, this king of Tyrus cannot be the ‘anointed cherub that covereth’. Only the doomed Lucifer fits perfectly into this portrayal.
A few other verses of diversion are: Genesis 3:14 “And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life”: (& Genesis 3:15); Matthew 16:23, “But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men”. The spirit behind the meandrous ophidism is the same which councelled Peter in an unguarded speech of spiritual naivety. This evil entity has long severed spiritual relationship with Jehovah, the Creator.
“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. 15) Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. 16) They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; 17) That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?” Isaiah 14:12-17. The umbilical cord that depicts his filialness to the Creator became extinct. He became fatherless: a bastard, wanting of good source. A father to his evil self he assumed. He had lost an irrecoverable estate! (…to be continued…)
