LUCIFER’S DESIRE TO BE GOD (3)
“…every precious stone was thy covering…”
(…continues from part 2…)
3) Did this angelic splendour ever ask himself if his position, as the head of the angelic host, was not probationary? Maniacal salivation comes from incorrigibly avaricious mentality. That crave becomes an entrapment of opiumism; and in the case of the angels of the Rainbow Administration, Lucifer was eternally hooked on that spiritual negativism, with no second chance of spiritual salubrity. Lucifer’s desideration resulted in eternality of doom!
Ezekiel 28:12-15 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.”
The world is a wilderness under Lucifer
Lucifer, could you not have made excellent use of the talents of these precious stones of your making, giving thanks and adoration to the Giver of life? You are not different from the foolish servant who buried his talent meant for God’s business. The Devil abandoned his official duty, chasing after the mirage of deification. Lucifer, why would you dare to second-guess God’s omniscient decision? What told you that the Creator does not know what is good for every one of the billions of His creationism? Did it occur to you that the thought of your mind was iniquitous to the perfection of your angelic being, that what you were chasing was the egregiousness of a craver?
Isaiah 14:12-17 “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?” And by the time of the Incarnation, Jesus, when He was tempted of the Devil, it was no longer a beautiful Eden Garden. Satan had become the false god of the world, a world he could not care for; a wilderness it had become, unfortunately.
The Rapture will cause great cataclysm of satanic rule
He did not stop weakening the good world of God’s creation. He had got his devilish desire; he could not even try to maintain a smidgeon level of the status quo. No wonder he was not allowed to become a member of the Godhead. Lucifer did not, from Scriptural documentation, plead for mercy. Well, granted the fact that angels do not have a second chance, nothing stops the LORD God not to make another law to emancipate angelic act of missing the divine mark. The Word of God clearly states in Matthew 26:28, “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Exegetical explanation of this verse is the Pauline, “For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second” (Hebrews 8:7).
Sin robs one of all hopes, even the ones that stand good chances of activation. Adam behaved in this similitude, because Scripture did not report his plead for the original sin. Unlike Lucifer, whom I believe the LORD knew that he would not change at all, Adam, today, continues to walk to the Christian Church altar, praying the prayer of salvation. Lucifer could not envisage the future role of his crave. How could he, when he is not omniscient? Could he have seen what goes on everywhere simultaneously? He has not the faculty of the Omnipresence. Lucifer secretly, without permission, tampered with the knowledge of good and evil, and to his chagrin he lacked the enhancement of omnipotence to navigate through omniscience to traverse the labyrinth of the knowledge of good and evil. Lucifer, you failed. Amen.
Getting born again is a conscious effort on the part of an individual. Get born again. Say this sinner’s prayer.
“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
