Satan’s Fall

Why is God so displeased with pride? It tore our world apart and has caused suffering for all of mankind.

The first instance of pride wasn’t prideful man, but God’s most beautiful and powerful creature. His name was Lucifer, which means, Shining One. He was an anointed guardian Cherub. He was on the holy mountain of God. The Lord said he was blameless in his ways from the day he was created. He had the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. He was the most powerful angel God created.

What happened? He became puffed up with pride. He was beautiful, powerful, and thought he deserved the worship that is due God. He wanted the throne. He wanted to be God. He was filled with pride and ambition. He was very persuasive. He convinced 1/3 of the Angelic Host to fight for the overthrow of their creator, Almighty God.

God called this rebellion, caused by pride, sin. His name became Satan, which means the adversary, (enemy). The Devil, which means slanderer and false accuser. God calls him the, “Father of Liars”. Satan hates God and His creation, us included. He spends his time like a lion roaming to and fro across the earth seeking whom he can devour.

Why? Because he knows God loves us. God loved us enough to die for us. It grieves God to lose even one of us. The more people Satan can pull away from God, the more pain he causes. He lost the battle for God’s throne, but he hasn’t given up. He’s taking his kingdom right here, right now, and he wants all of us to turn from God and pay homage to him.

So, we have to choose. “Choose ye, whom you will serve.” Will we blindly follow the enemy through the very gates of Hell? Or, will we give up some of the pleasures this earth offers, humble ourselves, and give our all to the One who paved the way into His kingdom, with the blood of His beloved Son?

    As you know, I am very ill and will probably die from my condition. I have never been sad so the doctors got together and decided I needed to see a Psychiatrist. You see in today’s thinking, it wasn’t normal not to fear death. they chose the Doctor and we spent several wonderful hours talking about life, my condition and death. At the end of the third session he told me to return to my regular doctors he had his evaluation. When I returned to my doctors he shared a letter from the Psychiatrist.

    Dear Dr __________: Thank you for allowing me to meet with your patient. You may rest assured she is as content with death as she appears. You see, she met the Lord BEFORE she became ill. She is emotionally stable and NOT afraid to meet with her Lord face to face.

    What does scare me is that Satan has found a way to take this belief away from our young people. It’s called drugs and a common disrespect for themselves and others. By attacking the young, he is cutting off the life blood of the next generations beliefs.

    Thanks for the post Wanda, as always, it was reflective and well published.

  2. This site definitely has all of the info I needed concerning this subject
    and didn’t know who to ask.

    • Thank you for stopping by and I am glad if I have given you answers you were seeking. It is all Spiritual Warfare. Our lives here are merely preparation for our Blessed future with our Lord. Satan tries to destroy, the Lord gives us strength and wisdom to endure. Some day, it will be finished. What wonders we will see then.
