The Obsession of Lucifer
Everywhere I look, something has some form of relation with Lucifer. Barack Obama, Supernatural, celebrities, etc. All of these are associated with the bible and Lucifer (or said to be). Not sure if Barack Obama is the anti-christ, but the show Supernatural just entered the season where Lucifer has risen from hell, and has brought hell with him.
That's kind of predictable though. As it gets closer to the end (according to the Mayan calender), an increase of comparison between politicians and other important people takes place. This goes for television as well. All of the information in the Supernatural television show is either an alternate description of what the bible says or is actual information of the bible. Is Lucifer really gonna bring upon the apocalypse?
Notice the video. This video shows the death of the demon Lilith (which is a real demon by the way for those that don't know). Once Lilith is killed, Lucifer is soon risen (after the demon that manipulated the guys into killing Lilith is killed as well).
Who is Lucifer?
According to the Bible, Lucifer is a fallen angel. Lucifer was created by God and was said to have been perfect once. Lucifer was a perfect creation by God, with everything beautiful about him. Lucifer was created to worship God but he decided to worship himself. As pride begin to fill his heart, Lucifer disobeyed God and was cast out of heaven as a result of it. He believed that he was equal to God.

Lucifer has also appeared on one of my favorite movies, Constantine. The storyline is very interesting but if you are a first time viewer of this movie, you may get a little confused. It teaches about Angels and Demons, Heaven and Hell. A man wants to make it to Heaven but they don't want him, while Hell wants him for themselves.
Anyways the video below this is a clip from Constantine. It shows Lucifer coming down to try to bring Constantine to Hell.

Lucifer in Dante's Inferno
Dante's Inferno is one of my favorite stories of all time. Not that I have a fascination with Lucifer, I have a fascination with religious workings. Religious stories are always the best stories to read. That's what Dante's Inferno is. It reviews some of the most infamous sinners in the history of Christianity and every other religion associated with our father, God.
The storyline of Dante's Inferno is based on every soul that has been destined for eternal damnation. Some of the spirits in Hell are does that the guy knows. Eternal agony and despair consume these poor souls. Amongst the souls, there is Judas Iscariot, Cain, unbaptized babies, Lucifer (Satan, Belial, Leviathon, Prince of Darkness, God of this world, etc.), and more.
The following images located to the right are images of Lucifer from Dante's Inferno. Notice how Lucifer is trapped in ice. This is the 9th circle of Hell, and the final circle of Hell.
There is a game being created for this story called Dante's Inferno. It is said to be released in 2010 sometime and it will be on PS2 and XBOX 360. Not sure if it will be on Nintendo Wii.
Dante's Inferno Gameplay
Wow, I must say this gameplay is absolutely beautiful. Can't wait till it comes out so I can spend hours playing this game.
