EZE 28:15 “You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created, Until unrighteousness was found in you.”
REV 12:9-10 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Satan - satanas = to gossip, to malign, to slander and to accuse.
This takes place historically in REV 12:7-9, when Satan is cast out of heaven.
Star - heylel - “Lucifer” - from the Latin Vulgate, not the original Hebrew.
ISA 14:12 How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! - NKJ
ISA 14:12 How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! - TLB
ISA 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! - KJV
Lucifer - Latin = “light bearer.”
It means the shining one, the translucent one, the simulating one.
Two creatures are said to throw out light which made them ultra-attractive -
Heylel - Satan
Nachash - serpent, Gen 3.
Satan was attractive to at least one third of all the angels.
The serpent was attracted to one half of all mankind.
Satan can transform himself into an angel of light, 2CO 11:14, and he transforms his ministers into angels of light,
2CO 11:14-15 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness;
They talk about the gospel, but it is a different gospel, not the gospel of the Bible, GAL 1:6.
You must never look at the personality but the content of the message.
From the middle of the Tribulation period and for the rest of his existence, Satan has to stay on the earth.
REV 12:9 “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”
REV 13:14 - he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform.
REV 18:23 - he deceives the world by using a very popular church in Rome.
REV 19:20 - he deceives those who had received the mark of the beast.
REV 20:3 and threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he should not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time.
â€˜amar = to boast within yourself about yourself, to challenge, to charge, to speak against, to suppose.
Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life.
The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.
True love is what is left in a relationship after all the selfishness is taken out.
LUK 9:23 And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”
â€˜amar = to boast within yourself about yourself, to challenge; it also means to charge, to speak against, to suppose.
PRO 23:7 For as he thinks within himself, so he is.
Hypocrisy is a manifestation of an evil mental attitude.
