The Uncovered Secretes Of The Apostasy Of Satan

Updated on April 17, 2015

The Enemy Of Man

It is very and how crucial and important to understand how sin originated and why it still exists today. There are lots of questions in the hearts of people concerning this ignored truth. Each of these questions has been collected and clear answers are given below;

1. Did God create the devil?

There is no scripture to indicate that God created the devil. Everything that God created from the beginning was good and perfect.

2. Whom did God create?

“Thou was perfect in thy ways from the day that thou was created, till iniquity was found in thee.” Ezekiel28:15.

Note: in this chapter the prince of Tyrus represents Lucifer. This is a prophecy of the literal king of Tyre, but a careful reading shows it has this wider meaning because of certain inferences such as “thou has been in Eden the garden of God.” (Verse 13).

3. What was Lucifer’s position before he sinned?

“Thou art the anointed cherub (angel) that covereth.” Ezekiel 28:14a. He is called the “covering cherub” in verse 16. His position near Gods throne shows his authority over other angels.

4. How did Lucifer become the devil?

The bible says in Ezekiel 28:17a; “your heart was lifted up because of thy beauty; thou have corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness.”

It is also clearly stated in Isaiah 14:12-14; “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations! For thou have said in thy heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the most high.”

In these verses, Satan is presented as the king of Babylon. Just as God was the king behind Israel’s throne, so Satan was king behind the pagan thrones of Tyre and Babylon and at times these nations reflected the characteristics of Satan.

5. What did Satan’s apostasy lead him to do?

The answer to this question lies in the Book of Revelation 12:7; “and there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels.”

6. What was the result of this battle in heaven?

The verse above continues from Revelation12: 8, 9; “And prevailed not; neither was there found a place for them in heaven. The great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

This correspond to what Jesus said, “I beheld Satan as lightening fall from heaven.” Luke 10: 18.

7. Where is the devil now?

“Therefore rejoice ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! He knows that he has nothing but a short time.” Revelations 12: 12.

The controversy between Christ and Satan continues on earth. The devil is always angry with a person that obeys the commandments of God. This is because commandment keepers will enter Gods kingdom and live forever. Since Satan is a “liar” and a “murderer” (John 8: 44), it is unsafe to follow his suggestions. Therefore, let us determine to heed Christ’s injunctions.
