Summary: we’re here in chapter 12: and we’re reading about an angelic conflict in this chapter between Gods angels and Satan’s angels, the angels that belong to Satan are the 1/3rd that was cast out of heaven with him when he thought he could take over Gods throne

Rev. #39~12:1-4 Woman & Dragon 1-23-10

Well, we’re here in chapter 12: and we’re reading about an angelic conflict in this chapter between Gods angels and Satan’s angels, the angels that belong to Satan are the 1/3rd that was cast out of heaven with him when he thought he could take over Gods throne, that’s how Lucifer became Satan.

He must certainly be a convincing liar in order to cause 1/3rd of the angels to believe that he could.

God created him an angel, a powerful angel, his beauty was magnificent, he had the most prestigious and powerful position in heaven as he was over all the angels, he was Gods anointed cherub, God made him so.

At one time there were no fallen angels, all of the angels were faithful to God. Lucifer had the honored position of being in charge of all the angels, but because of pride and the desire to have Gods position of being worshipped he became sinful. Remember, he was a created angel, how can something created be more powerful than the Creator?

EZK. 28: 13-17 we read about him:

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* {music} was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

14Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; {he watched over the Throne of God} 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.

15Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

16By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: {pride} therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God:*{Gods kingdom in heaven} and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: {notice; thine, thy, thou, thy, thy } it was all his fault, no one else.** I will cast thee to the ground,-- Notice- he was cast to the ground, not hell, he has never been in hell.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:--

The Son of God, Who at the set time would come to the earth as The Son of Man, the Lord Jesus, was there when Lucifer who then became Satan was cast out of heaven.

Luke 10: 18 And he said unto them, I beheld **Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

------------

Isaiah 14: 12 15 we’re told about him again;

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!

13For 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:

14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

15Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

This will take place in Rev.20: 1-3 as the Lord Jesus sets up His 1000-year reign.

1And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up—

He was originally created Lucifer, **son of the morning, but he is now the epitome of evil and the depth of degradation. He is the most dangerous being in all of God’s creation. He is our enemy, he is the root cause of death, sickness, rape, murder, theft, war, any bad thing we might think of originates with Satan, he is constantly thinking of ways to cause havoc in the world, he knows if he can start a conflict between country’s that multitudes of souls will wind up in hell if they die lost, they’ll never have another opportunity to be saved if their killed in a war. Satan has had over 6000 years to study mankind’s weaknesses.

Ø Listen as I read from Rev.12:

1And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.
