WORSHIP: SATAN’S UNHOLY CRAVE
*2* Adam did not understand that Lucifer was merely extending his apocalyptic judgment upon him and the entire humanity when he came to show the woman how to become God. Even till this very day, people hardly know how steep into an apocalyptic end they are being hounded into as they vote an emphatic, “Yes,” to Satanism. The doomed guy has done his perfect homework, or rather his covin work, with the sole intention of derailing man’s destiny of actuating godliness. “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness,” is the revelatory word of the Scripture.
I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven
I know that he knew his doom was a certainty from the word of God. Luke 10:18, “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven;” was the revelation of Jesus. In John 16:11, the Lord said, “Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.” ‘Is judged,’ grammatically, is in the perfect tense, therefore, Satan’s judgment is a foregone conclusion. Revelation 12:12 reveals, “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” Satanism is an attempt to give dividends of doom to the inhabitants of the terra firma. Lucifer is an evil genius. A calculating nocent, who leaves no stone unturned in his deleterious proclivity.
Thou wast perfect in thy ‘light bearing’ ways…
Remember the things Ezekiel 28:15 told us? He was ‘perfect’ at his creation. God did not make an evil being. He decided to be so, against God’s design. This is why he had successfully deceived billions of intelligent beings. He exhibits fallacy of ‘perfection.’ Satan’s ‘ways’ are no longer God’s ways. He has suffered a spiritual derailment. Anyone who follows him runs into derailment. He has been able to chart a lifestyle of delusion for his followers. He has kept them in the gulag of his religions.
God said, “till iniquity was found in thee,” making Lucifer the man of ‘iniquity’ which, in Hebrew, is ‛evel (eh’-vel): ‘(moral) evil, injustice, unrighteousness; wrong.’ Lucifer, in his garb of unrighteousness, dared to look at, and challenged, the holiness of the One who sits on the throne, Judgment fell upon his stiff-necked penchant.
Now an angel of doom: who was once the light bearer.
In conclusion, Satan’s fall was before an eternal ‘Ĕlôhı̂ym, so, expectedly, his doom must, as adjudication should have it, be eternal. Dolorously, Lucifer has no second chance to latch on to. No angel has that spiritual luxury bestowed on him at creationism. Lucifer behaved like no true son of Jehovah. Bastardy. How could he walk before God, capped in sheer expropriatory audacity? Usurpation. To even think he could, with the third angelic host, expugn heaven is crazy. Procacious! Lucifer, you cannot be worshipped as God. You do not go by the epithetic, “who was, who is, and is to come.” Jesus is truly so: for “And he is before all things, and by him all things consist” [Colossians 1:17]. The verb ‘is,’ esti (es-tee’), means: ‘Third person singular present indicative of Eime –the AM of God name, ‘I Am’– he (she or it) is; also (with neuter plural) they are.’ Esti, in this sense, is not about a being of creation. It speaks of ‘existence.’ The preposition ‘before’ is pro (pro) ‘fore, that is, in front of, prior (figuratively superior) to.’ This esti of Jesus is from eternity. None, save God, can claim to have an eternal existence.
It also says of Him, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” [John 1:1]. ‘Beginning’ is archē (ar-khay’), meaning: ‘origin or commencement.’ Every ‘was’ of this verse is ēn (ane): ‘an imperfect tense of Eime; I (thou, etc.) was (wast or were).’ His being had been before creation and still remains so till eternity to come. So, what do we have here? “In the beginning” means: ‘before the origin or commencement of all time and created existence.’ Did the Word not give it (creation) being? Simply put, the time involved here is from all eternity. Jesus has all authority to claim deity; He, it was, who was involved in the ineffable kenoō of Philippians 2:7, “But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:”
If the Bible says ‘form of a servant,’ it presupposes that He was, in truth, not a servant. The words ‘made’ and ‘reputation’ are of the same Greek, kenoō (ken-o’-o) ‘to make empty, that is, (figuratively) to abase, neutralize, falsify.’ Jesus emptied Himself of Deity! If not, who could had accosted Him, the Lord of glory, and arrested Him for judgment, flogging and the eventual crucifixion? If He had not kenoō Himself there would be no soteriological expectation!
Thankfully, Adamic progeny has been graced with a second chance. Let him sin against God a million times; the million and first transgression that brings you before HIM becomes your 2nd chance. No angel was this fortunate!
Be wise. Get Jesus involved in your life. Get born again. In all sincerity say this prayer of salvation:
“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
