Summary: Discussion of Lucifer, His Creation, His Exaltation

2. Angels named

a. Michael -- Archangel (chief)

Dan. 10:13 “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.”

Who is Michael, specifically? (David Guzik)

(1) He is mentioned by name in four passages of the Bible: Dan 10, Dan 12, Rev 12 and here.

(2) Every time he is presented in the context of battle, or readiness to fight.

(3) He is an archangel, or a leading angel; we don't know for certain if he is the only archangel.

Michael seems to be the angelic representative of Israel, battling against the demonic representative of Persia; on earth, Israel seemed lowly and weak; but in the heavens, it had the mightiest representative

of all. (David Guzik)

Dan. 10:21; Dan. 12:1;

Jude v. 9 “Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”

b. Gabriel -- Messenger Dan. 8:16; Dan. 9:21; Luke 1:19

Dan 8:16 “And I heard a man’s voice between [the banks of] Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this [man] to understand the vision.”

Luke 1:18 “And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.”

Luke 1:19 “And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.”

c. Abaddon -- Some say this is Satan.

Rev. 9:11 “And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.”

Perhaps Apollyon is Satan himself, or another high-ranking leader of demons. (David Guzik)

d. Lucifer ? -- "the anointed cherub" Ezek. 28:14 [No name given here.]

Law of Double Reference according to Dake: A visible person is immediately addressed while at the same time an invisible person who is using the visible person as a tool to hinder the plan of God is also addressed. pg 118 God’s Plan for Man

Example: Jesus said to Peter, “Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou art an offense to me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men” Matt. 16:23

“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.”

03742 k@ruwb {ker-oob'} of uncertain derivation; TWOT - 1036; n m

AV - cherubims 64, cherub 27; 91

1) cherub, cherubim (pl)

1a) an angelic being

1a1) as guardians of Eden

1a2) as flanking God's throne

1a3) as an image form hovering over the Ark of the Covenant

1a4) as the chariot of Jehovah (fig.)

3. Lucifer? -- According to Ezekiel

a. Wiser than Daniel Ezek. 28:3

“Behold, thou [art] wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:”

Remember the dream interpretations of Daniel and the visions (secrets). The person being addressed is no ordinary person to be wiser than Daniel. Or, he only thinks within himself that he is wiser than Daniel.

b. Perfect in beauty Ezek. 28:12

“Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum [high above all], full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.”

c. Hast been in Eden (Pleasure) v. 13a --Not Adam's Eden

“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.”

d. Dressed [man]or implanted [angel] with stones, etc. v. 13b

“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”

He [Lucifer] was clothed in a garment that was covered with the most rare and precious gems,

(Clarence Larkin pg 112)

e. Musical Ezek. 28:13c

“the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes [holes] was prepared in thee”

pipes--literally, "holes" in musical pipes or flutes.

“musical instruments built into his being” pg 134 Charles K. Ramsden Sr. The Prehistoric Ages

f. Created Ezek 28:13c “in the day that thou wast created.”

Men are not created beyond Adam. This is not a man being addressed.
