The Battle We Wage - Part 1 : Lucifer's Fall







Once upon a time, there lived in Heaven, a beautiful angel of light named Lucifer... a name which means morning star or bright star. Lucifer had the highest position among angels. He was created by God with perfect beauty and intelligence and was a cherub.. he guarded the very throne of God. (See Ezekiel 28:11-14) But Lucifer became envious of God and began to challenge His authority. He said to other angels "Why should I bow down before Him.. am I not as beautiful?' He wanted to make himself higher than God (See Isaiah 14:12-14). Lucifer drew other dissenting angels to his side and an army was created..

God summoned the powerful warrior Michael, whose name means "Who is like unto God". He commandeered all the good angels and a terrible battle began in Heaven. The rogue angels were rounded up and thrown out of heaven...banished forever! (See Ezekiel 28:15-17)

They roam the earth seeking to gain souls, to win them away from God. Their master is Satan, the devil, who was once the beautiful angel of light... Lucifer.

Isn't that amazing? Frightening, but interesting. A warning to guard ourselves. Makes me wonder if there will be evil in heaven when we get there as there was before?
