# 6-ANGELS- 2~ BIBLE DOCTRINE 8-11-12
Today we'll continue with our study of Bible doctrine, last time we begin talking about "angels" we read that Lucifer was the most beautiful and wisest creature that God had created, he was an angel, (Isa.14:-Ezk.28:) but because he became prideful, he wanted to be worshipped as God, he led 1/3 of the angels in heaven in rebellion against God as he lied to them that he was going to over throw God Almighty, the very God that created him, as I said last time, how can any thing created become greater than it's Creator.
So Lucifer and the angels that believed his lies were cast out of heaven down to the earth, they were on the earth before God ever created man or any other creature.
> Jesus said in Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
This tells us that God the Son witnessed Satan being cast out, He was there at that time, only God knows how long it was after that, until God created man.
>But the Son of God came to this earth at the appointed time, not just any old time but at the right time.
Galatians 4:4-5 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
>He came to earth as Jesus the Son of Man, in order to take a body like sinful man, God can not die, but Jesus in a body like man could.
Jesus the God man died on the cross in sinful mans place, every persons sin debt has now been paid, but most will not receive His payment, so these will eternally pay their own sin debt, a debt that will never be paid off.
* Bare with me, as we're headed too our thought on "angels".
> Satan knew when God created Adam, he most likely heard God tell Adam that he could partake of every tree in the garden except one, "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil".
Genesis 2:7-9 As I read these next verses keep in mind that Eve had not yet been made.-- And the LORD God formed man notice Adam was formed, we'll see that Eve was made) of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. -- God did not do so with any other of His creatures. ---
8And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
15- And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
16And the LORD God commanded the man, 17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. --Notice Eve did not hear God say this, she had not yet been made, so Adam had to tell Eve what God commanded him, perhaps it didn't seem quit as important coming from Adam as it did when it came from God to Adam, perhaps Adam didn't explain the seriousness of this command as well as he should have, you and I can think on this matter for a time, food for thought.
