The fall of Lucifer

29 01 2007

Mercy and I were at Borders last weekend and we chanced upon this book. She highly recommended this as she has read the other book of this author Wendy Alec – The journal of the unknown prophet. Although i was quite skeptical on her previous book, this book looks interesting. The scriptures didn’t reveal much what happened to the fall of lucifer except that Pride has so seized this archangel’s heart and he wants to be God himself, and that is the beginning of Evil. The question of the original of evil has more of a philosophical discussions these days, as even some christians do not really believe in the devil himself exist. As i was reading this book (i am taking my time to read it), i realised something – (maybe extrabiblical revelations? hick hick), Why Lucifer fell? Angels were not created in the same manner as Man, although Angels are beloved of God, the thing that set us apart is we carry the Image of God, the supernatural, spiritual DNA in us – we are the imprint of the Almighty Himself! Angel’s not. In this book detailed, Lucifer became jealous, because he learned of the impending plan of God to create Man in His own image), The book is a great book, in my opinion, the story will and must not supercede the Scripture. I told Abel and Mercy that there is a reason why God did not reveal even to His beloved prophets etc the reason for Lucifer’s rebellion etc, i believe what Man need 99% is in the scripture today, that’s to know Him and to enjoy and glorify God forever. All these knowledge are extra, if God choose to reveal to Wendy, that’s good, but we must not focus on this. Ok. i do recommend this book for good reading.

Good thoughts here, Daniel! Don’t think I’ll have time to add this to my reading list right now, though.

Blessings to you, my friend,

Yup, this book’s not a priority. More like Lord of the Rings to me, but good read for the sake of knowledge anyway. Probably to find the origin of evil.

Isa14.12 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.

Ezek28.13 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. 16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. 18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
