Archetypal lowliness of heart found in the incarnate Christ; which was absent in Lucifer.

2) You would rather cut corners to achieve vain glories over clayey mankind like me. On the 3rd of February, 2021, you gave me a life threatening chase –in a vision. When you eventually caught up with me, a scared still-standing me discovered that you have bothered yourself chasing an untouchable H.O. Ojewale, by the grace of Jesus Christ. The futility of your naughtiness dawned on me, giving me more assuring knowledge that, if Jesus Christ be for me, what can Satan, the Devil do? “Absolutely nothing,” is the answer. Do you not feel sorry for yourself? Is it not too bad that all a clayey mould of my being has to do is just resist your threat and I have got you scampering off with your proverbial demonic tail snaking between your busy hind legs! Pitiful! But do I pity you?
Only the jejunity of a Scriptural bankrupt mind allows himself to feel sorry for a totally deranged idiot whose state of unconscionability is at the worst fatality of extremity. I do not feel sorry for anyone who will look into the eternality of the eyes of Divinity and decide to go against the eternality of His Almightiness. Lucifer’s closeness to Jehovah, as the head of empyreal praise and worship choir, makes his sin too grievous. I am trying to understand just why Lucifer, whose role is to hold the light before the true Light, will turn against the same true Light of eternal resplendence. Lucifer, you are not the true eternal Light; you are just the bearer. Lucifer means ‘light bearer.’ You removed the true Light, Jesus Christ, from the wickedness of your heart. What are you now, Lucifer? A hell bound Prince of darkness is what you have become.
They dwell in darkness, they that fell into the propagating machination of the Devil. First it was the celestial intelligent beings that listened, believed, followed and fell with him. Next, it was the beings of pre-adamic creation. They listened to the sonorous protest of his musical entertainment. They were sold absolutely on his evil cause, gave Satanism their full support and became the demons of these days’ wickedness.
The fall of mankind
When Adam allowed the spiritual death of his woman to cause his fall and the resultant effect on humanity, did you, Lucifer, not go into the frenetic vociferation of lunatic ejaculations? You thought it was the end of the Adamic race, favoured with the ‘likeness’ and a particularly satanic envy of the ‘image’ of the Divinity. Alas Adam has a second chance from the endless fountain of God’s mercy on account of the Image –the Lord Jesus. This Jesus, the Lord of lords and the King of kings did set His feet of Divinity on terra firma, with all lowliness of heart which you, a created being, refused to do. Shame on you, Lucifer! Today, I am a favoured recipient of the Lord’s mercy. His divine intervening mercy surrounds me just as the mountains rise protectively around the city of Jerusalem. Amen. Lucifer is the eternal loser!
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7)
There is a Scriptural antidote to this roaring beast and his devouring crave. It is found in the book of James 4:7 “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” The word ‘submit’ is the Greek hupotassō (hoop-ot-as’-so): ‘to arrange under, to subordinate, put in subjection; obey.’ The true submission of one’s self is to be ‘born again.’ As God’s child, when the evil maniac shows up in whatever form, do the needful, ‘resist’ his advances. ‘Resist’ is anthistēmi (anth-is’-tay-mee): ‘to set one’s self against, to withstand, oppose.’ And what is the Greek for ‘flee’? It is pheugō (fyoo’-go): ‘seek safety by flight; to be saved by flight, to escape safely out of danger; to run away (literally or figuratively) by implication to shun; by analogy to vanish.’ I believe you can see why the Devil could not harm me in the vision I saw? As a born again Christian, your life is hidden in Christ Jesus. The enemy has to deal with the Lord first, that is, if he will dare Jesus.
Lucifer: No longer the light bearer.
All that you call trophies of conquests are collections of useless Pyrrhus’ dance of war. You are indeed a pitiful sight.
Lucifer, oh Lucifer, so you went through all these harrowing experiences of “going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it” [Job 2:2] just to win hell bound disobedient people, the foulness of demonism and the fallen angelic cohorts who are languishing in chains of darkness in Tartarus (2Peter 2:4). At the end of it all, you and your cohorts have your eternal existentiality in hell; your trophies are indeed of Pyrrhus. No sane being toils for pyrrhic trophies.
Getting born again is strictly a conscious effort on the part of an individual. It is of a personal conviction that, as the word of God says, Jesus is truly the only Saviour of the world. A soteriological dependence on the finished work of Jesus is the sole belief requirement of Scripture. Get born again by saying this simple prayer:
“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!”
