“How you are fallen from heaven,O Lucifer,[a] son of the morning!How you are cut down to the ground,You who weakened the nations!For you have said in your heart:‘I will ascend into heaven,I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;I will also sit on the mount of the congregation.On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,I will be like the Most High Isaiah 14 v 12-14
The origins of Satan,also known as the adversary,the opposer, the devil.He was known as a son of the morning.One of God’s created beings until he decided to rebel against God and undermine the authority of the Almighty God and that didnot work out so well for him.He fell from heaven (God’s heaven) and was tossed down.
The issue Satan had was Pride,about 5 times he said I,I,I that shows self depency and arrogance.When we discover more these are the traps he still uses today to use against God’s people.The spirit of pride and rebellion.
It is known he decieved some of the angels under his charge and managed to somehow get a third of them to follow his kingdom of darkness.So the opposition is there.The devil is the complete opposite of Jesus Christ who according to Philippians 2 v 5-11 humbled himself and was obidient to God the father,even unto his death.The result was Jesus was exalted by the Father and given a name above all names.
The oldest book in bible of Job 41 talks about a sea creature called Leviathan,a mystical monster of unknown origins vicious difficult to destroy,what caught my attention was verse 34 of that chapter which said
He beholds every high thing;He is king over all the children of pride.”
I believe this describes the devil/a manifestation of the devil,so all children who have pride are ruled by the devil.He is also manifested as a serpent in the garden and a dragon in revelations.But also he is described as a beautiful created being with great musical talent.In fact his beauty is credited to one of the reasons he got prideful.
This fall was predicated because of Pride and Rebellion.
It is the case that since the Devil cannot destroy God,he instead goes against God’s children in an attempt to frustrate God’s plans.It here we must realise that the battle is on going,we are constantly under attack since the kingdom is at war and the devil will use anything and everything at his disposal to ruin your life.Which is why it is important as a Christian to stay alert and be diligent.
Make no mistake the devil is real,demons are real though unseen in this physical realm and they are your enemy.
