Know your enemy(ies). Here’s why I do not believe that lucifer and satan are the same. The Master Yahushua plainly stated that satan was a murderer from the beginning and the father of lies (John 8:44). We know from the account of Job that satan’s function was to seek out iniquity and destroy (Job 1:6-12); he seeks out his own. The Master said that the prince of this world cometh but hath nothing in Him (John 14:30).
A Fallen Morning Star
I believe satan found the iniquity of the “pride of life” in lucifer through temptation. As satan tempted the Master Yahushua by promising Him this world’s kingdoms and riches in return for bowing down to him, I believe lucifer was given a similar offer. Unlike the Master Yahushua who told satan to “get out of here” (Matthew 4:8-10) , lucifer did not overcome and seems to have taken the bait. Now lucifer wants to be like the Most High; he wants to put his stars (or his people) above the stars of Yah as stated in Isaiah 14:12.
By bowing to satan, lucifer and the angels who followed him into rebellion also come under the control of satan. That high ranking angel actually took a lower position under satan through satan’s deceptions. The scriptures state that the great dragon named satan, who deceived the whole world, will be cast out. (Revelation 12:9)
Lucifer’s New/Temporary World System Position
Lucifer is also described as the king of Tyre in Ezekiel. Unlike satan, he actually was a covering cherub in the garden/presence of Yah. He was described as perfect until iniquity was found in him (Ezekiel 28:12-15). Satan did his job and discovered the iniquity. It is also interesting to note that lucifer took the form of the king of Tyre. Angelic hosts and spirits usually are referred to as “prince.” To be a king on the earth it seems that one has to come to the earth legally with a body.
This hints of the anti-Messiah coming just as the real Messiah came in human form. Revelation states that the anti-messiah or “the beast” received power from the dragon/satan (Revelation 13:4). This tracks with the explanation that lucifer is not satan, but derives power from him now that he was rejected by the Most High.
Final Ten Kings of the World System Are Luciferian
The ten kings who have been given no kingdom yet but have power as kings with the beast for one hour are bodily kings on the earth too (Revelation 17:12). They are unified in their efforts just as in the days of the tower of Babel, and they give their power and authority to the beast (Revelation 17:13); they are luciferian. Their pride will cause them to make war with the Lamb, and we know what happens next (Revelation 17:14)!
Satan’s Contrived Culture
Satan’s deceptions continues as the whole world system culture rapidly moves away from Yah’s original design and toward judgement. Its all a set up- the different religions, media, entertainment, politics, etc. However, the people are deceived into thinking that they are making progress towards a world of freedom and independence where the majority makes the rules.
The reality is that the majority does not make the rules in this wicked world’s system; the enemy that rules over the majority sets the rules. His set of rules, however, does not lead to peace but to death. Even the so called “enlightened ones” that are keepers of the doctrines of the mystery religions, cannot deviate freely off the destructive Babylonian blueprint or they would lose their positions if not their very lives.
Yah’s people loved not their lives until the death (Revelation 12:11). Yahushua said be faithful unto death, and I will give you a crown of life (Revelation 2:10). He is able to make good on his promise because He is Master of masters and king of kings.
Aren’t you glad that the Master Yahushua overcame so that we could be redeemed!? Stay Awake – Watch & Pray! I’ll see you at the finish line.
