Lucifer: The Fallen Angel (Biblical Stories Explained)

before the biblical God created the

world he first created the heavens and

inside the heavens he created the

cherubs the angels and archangels the

Archangels were essentially the

highest-ranked of the angels and were

the chief messengers of God himself

amongst these Archangels was the being

known as Lucifer the highest Archangel

of old he was described as being the

most beautiful creature that God had

ever created a splendid being that was

perfect in every way

Ezekiel 2015 described Lucifer as that

was perfect in thy ways from the day

that thou was created but Lucifer was so

perfect so handsome so divine and so

strong when in comparison to his peers

that he grew arrogant his superior

qualities to God's other creations

caused him to become prideful and pretty

soon he believed that it was he who

should be in God's place he wanted to be

God himself

now given that he was deemed worthy to

be in the presence of God more than any

other and that he arguably understood

God better than any other Lucifer could

think of no one better than himself to

be the one to overthrow his Lord as

noted in Isaiah 14:12 14 the prophet

Isaiah quotes what some suggest is

Lucifer saying I will ascend to heaven I

will raise my throne above the stars of


it can even be argued that Lucifer's

ambition is greater than gods that not

only does he want to take God's place

but wants a place even higher than which

God sits pride would spur on Lucifer to

act on his thoughts that he was indeed

more powerful than God it was pride in

which blinded him pride which led him

down a path haughtiness and pride which

saw him begin to manipulate the other

angels into serving him after all his

intellect was superior to that of the

other angels and so deceiving them was

not beyond his means

while some did remain loyal to God many

of the angels who like Lucifer would

become known as fallen angels began to

recognize him as the superior being all

Ezekiel 28:15 notes Lucifer has been

perfect in every way he also notes that

iniquity was found in him thus

diminishing his perfection with a third

of the angels on sight

Lucifer loads an attack on God and a

mighty war for the heavens took place

but Lucifer was not counting on the

strong resistance put up by another

Archangel the one known as Michael

unable to defeat Michael in his current

form fast lending Lucifer to doubt his

Oh perfection at this point

Lucifer transforms into a dragon as

noted in Revelation 12 7 through 8 and

there was war in heaven Michael and his

angels fought against the Dragon and the

dragon and his angels prevailed not

neither was their place found any more

in heaven why you might say Lucifer had

the courage to prevail in the first

place although many would say this was

not courage and more so blind arrogance

he's ultimately defeated by Archangel

Michael by this we understand how

powerful the biblical God actually is

that Lucifer is defeated without God

actually having to getting involved in

the battle you might argue that God work

through Michael in order to overcome

Lucifer by in any case Lucifer's defeat

is absolute

revelation 12:9 goes on to state and the

Great Dragon was cast out that old

serpent called the devil and Satan which

deceiveth the whole world as he was cast

out into earth and his angels were cast

out with him this is also where we see

Lucifer referred to by his other

namesake Satan which he earns after he

has been defeated his defeat is more

than just a loss of pride though Lucifer

loses everything

he's not only shunned by God but he is

cast out from heaven along with all the

other angels who had sided with him

gone are his glory days of being the

most splendid perfect being of all of

God's creations and instead he takes the

role of the complete opposite his fault

F is described by Luke who quotes Jesus

in 1018 I beheld Satan as lightning fell

from heaven

Lucifer's ultimate fate is detailed in

revelation 20:10 where it's understood

that the devil that deceived them was

cast out into the lake of fire and

brimstone where the beast and the false

prophet are and shall be tormented day

and night for ever and ever

it's understood that that Lucifer would

not tolerate his sentence quietly in

fact from the very day of him being cost

out Lucifer began to plot his revenge

against God seeing as Lucifer was no

longer God's favorite creation Lucifer

would talk his vengeance against that

which took his place mankind itself when

God created Adam and Eve he tested them

forbidding them from eating from the

tree of knowledge seeing an opportunity

to scorn God

Lucifer smoked his way into the Garden

of Eden posed as a snake however in the

early passages of Genesis which detailed

the temptation of Eve the serpent is

never explicitly stated as being Lucifer

in Genesis 3:1 the snake is merely

described as being the crafty animal

therefore it's likely that the idea that

Lucifer is this serpent is merely

ascertain by the members of the faith

while it's taught as Scripture it's not

necessarily stated in these opening

passages some recounted this argument

though by saying that Lucifer is

referred to as the serpent

most notably in Revelation 12 19 where

he is called that old serpent and

perhaps therefore the original serpent

others argue that Lucifer wasn't the

snake itself in the Garden of Eden but

that he manipulated the snake to speak

on his behalf

however again there's no scripture to

actually support this

furthermore when we look at the origin

of Lucifer's name you will find that

Lucifer is actually Latin for light

bringer or Morningstar or even the

planet Venus

but how could let him find its way into

a Hebrew manuscript when the manuscript

was written before Latin was even a

language let's take the 14th chapter of

Isaiah to analyze this seeing us believe

it or not it's the only point in the

scripture where the name Lucifer is

actually explicitly mentioned as I have

14 12 states how art thou fallen from

heaven o Lucifer son of the morning how

art thou cast to the ground which did

ass weaken the nations 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 I will ascend above the

heights of the clouds I will be like the

Most High yet thou shalt be brought down

to hell to the sides of the pit many

believe that here Isaiah is referring to

Lucifer the devil but there is another

argument that this passage is actually

in reference to a fallen Babylonian king

one who is mortal and not one who is

created as a divine perfect angel it's

understood that this King had sinned

greatly in his persecution of Israel and

likely believe that he was beyond the

power and punishment of the biblical God

in this argument Isaiah in this chapter

seeks to explain the Kings folly and not

the folly of the Archangel Lucifer in

fact his uses of the term Lucifer isn't

Universal across all translations in

some versions as I as simply refers to

the subject as the Morningstar or hail L

the Hebrew word referring to Venus it

implies that the king of Babylon whose

identity is not confirmed in Scripture

was once someone considered in high


before his downfall as predicted by

Isaiah but if this is the case and how

that it all become about Lucifer the

fallen angel well that's not exactly

known but we can speculate that early


tribes who were by this time writing in

Latin simply decided for themselves that

this would be a great opportunity to fit

in a story about a fallen angel going by

this argument as I as 14:12 was

therefore hijacked by these scribes and

molded to fit their own narrative about

the character Lucifer by the time our

King James the first translations into

English st. Jerome who was largely

responsible for these translations would

incorporate Lucifer into the final

version and thus the metamorphosis of

what was a Babylonian king who'd sinned

for his arrogance would instead become

Lucifer the fallen angel of God it would

be interwoven into the biblical account

of the fall and would eventually become

canon for some believers the same can be

said for Ezekiel's worth in 2015 where

he stays that was perfect in thy ways

from the day thou was created until

inequity was found there while there are

many who believe that Ezekiel is

addressing Lucifer other accounts

indicate that Ezekiel is actually

referring to an unnamed mortal king of

Tyre in conclusion to this video

regardless of how you interpret the

story of Lucifer

whoever as an unnamed Babylonian king or

the fallen angel of God the Maul of the

tale is quite profound it echoes the old

saying pride goes before a fall or in

the biblical sense in proverbs 16:18

pride goeth before destruction and a

haughty spirit before a fall it serves

to show us that like Lucifer

if we are too confident and believe

ourselves to be more powerful than we

actually are we could risk to set

ourselves up for our own failure the

tale also seeks to teach us to be modest

and to be thankful for what we have and

while we should aspire we should not

rush into things and be impulsive of our


it also echoes the idea that we should

respect our elders our parents and those

that paved the way before us in that in

some cases they know better than we do

and hold wisdom that we may not be able

to conceive at the time Lucifer for

example believed he was stronger than

God and even though God had made him

what he was Lucifer threw back in his

face and

against him because he believed he was

better the result of this of course

leads to Lucifer's banishment which

shows us that the consequences for such

disrespect to those who came before us

can and should be severe let me know
