Lucifer, the god behind the Nimrodic Baal, the sun god.
(…continued from part two…)
3) What a wasted existentiality, O Lucifer, have you brought unto your being! Everything you boast of à la creationism is not of your creativity. “I made thee so” were the asseverative pronouncement of Ezekiel 28:14 “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.” Many unschooled teachers of the Scriptures will tell you that the vaticination of this chapter of the Book of Ezekiel is directed at, Ethbaal or Ithobal, the king of Tyre and not to the Devil. Lucifer, I know this is the execrable you. The king of Tyrus could never have been in the Eden Garden as the 13th verse points out. These are the words of prophet Ezekiel. “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, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 13) 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. 15) Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16) By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17) Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. 18) Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee” [Ezekiel 28:12-18].
God did not create the world tôhû bôhû, the Hebrew for ‘without form and void’, found in Genesis 1:2 “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” How do I know this fact? It is a vaticinatory facticity of Isaiah 45:18 “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.”
‘Without form’ of Genesis 1:2 or ‘in vain’ of Isaiah 45:18 is tôhû (to’-hoo): ‘From an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), that is, desert; figuratively a worthless thing; adverbially in vain; formlessness, confusion, unreality, emptiness;’ and ‘void’ of Genesis is bôhû (bo’-hoo): ‘From an unused root (meaning to be empty); a vacuity, that is, (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin.’ What the ingenuity of Jehovah’s creationism brought into existence was a state of conduciveness. The evil perpetration of yours, Lucifer, brought the judgment of the cataclysmic indistinguishable ruin of tôhû bôhû. Christ created you, Lucifer, in perfection: for verse 15 says, “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” God did not plant iniquity in your being, it was you, Lucifer, who thought yourself into the embarkation of the profanity of the nobility of your free moral agency. How could you ever believe that you stood any chance, at all, in going solo without the support of the Divinity of the Logos, continue to remain a mind boggling inconvenience.
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!”
