The Fall of Lucifer & Understanding the Good News of Christ

This really isn’t an article.  It is more of a resource/reference into a much neglected topic  – The Revolt & Fall of Lucifer and how we got where we are.  This is a topic that is paramount to our having a foundation not only in understanding the role and path before us as Christians, Christ Bearers, Followers of the Way, Children of God, etc… but also in appreciating why the Price that has been paid for our Redemption had to be given, the Depths and Extent of what had to be given, and by whom it had to be given, Yeshua haMashiach – Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God.  In essence JUST HOW GOOD THE GOOD NEWS REALLY IS!

Our role as proclaimers and emissaries of the Word of God is much different than generations before ours, even our parents generation.  We actually live in a generation and society that is so far removed from the Word of God, God and His Son that they do not even consider the fact they need Saving, let alone why.  You’d be surprised how many don’t even entertain the aspect of evil in the world or even the evil one, Lucifer/Satan/Devil; his plottings and machinations into our daily lives and  his total, absolute, Eternal  loathing of us/humanity.

There is a war that has been waged from the beginnings of time.  And although it’s outcome has been secured and won by our Savior, this war is still ongoing and requires our participation and every soul that will choose the Way to assure our and their place in that Victory.

So to begin that dialogue we really have to have a clear place of where to begin, a context as to why.  We have to begin at the beginning and understand what is at stake.  It isn’t about laying a guilt trip about  “sin” on someone.  It is about explaining to them why sin is, where it came, how the death and sin code came into being, how we as humanity entered into it and more importantly HOW WE have been SAVED from its power over us.  We are truly speaking about Eternity and humanity’s Eternal Soul.  Eternity is a very, very, very…. long time.

If we do not understand the Fall of Lucifer – we can not understand why the Birth, Death/Crucifixion and Resurrection of our Savior FOR US was required and how to give that Good News to Others.  How this GOOD NEWS & Salvation was and IS the Eternal Solution and Love of a Gracious God and Father for his Children.

We have to move beyond the comfort and peace we are so blessed to know in our own Relationships with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.   Someone once said “Ministry isn’t convenient and it isn’t always comfortable.”  We must be able to discuss why it is required and what causes the need for it.  We are called to be the available instrument used by the Divine Father to share the “Peace that Passeth all Understanding” The Peace of Yeshua haMashiach – Jesus the Christ with them. So that they too can have that Blessed Relationship and Eternal Life.

Scriptural References to the Fall of Lucifer

Ezekiel 28:13-19  “You (Lucifer) were in Eden, the garden of Elohim.  Every precious stone was your covering: the ruby, topaz and diamond, beryl, shoham, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald and gold.  The workmanship of your settings and mountains were prepared for you on the day you were created.  “You were the anointed kerub/cherub that covered.  And I placed you, you were on the set-apart/holy mountain of Elohim – God.  You walked up and down in the midst of stones of fire.  “You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created until unrighteousness was found in you.  “By the greatness of your trade/works you became filled with violence within, and you sinned.  So I thrust you from the mountain of Elohim – God, and I destroyed you.  O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.  “Your heart was lifted up because of your loveliness, you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor.  I threw you to the earth.  I laid you before sovereigns, to look at you.  “You profaned your set-part – holy places by your many crookednesses/iniquities , by the unrighteousness of your trading/works.  Therefore I brought forth fire from your midst.  It has devoured you, and I turned you to ashes upon the earth before the eyes of all who see you.  “All who knew you among the peoples were astonished at you.  Waste you shall be and ceased to be forever.”

Isaiah 14:12-24  “How you have fallen from the heavens, O Helel – Lucifer son of the morning!  You have been cut down to the ground, you who laid low the nations.  “For you have said in your heart, ‘Let me go up to the heavens, let me raise my throne above the stars of El – God, and let me sit in the mount of appointment on the sides of the north; let me go up above the heights of clouds, let me be like the Most High.’ “But you are brought down to She’ol, to the sides of the pit…..”

Genesis 3:  “And the nahash- serpent was more crafty than all the lives of the field which Yahweh – God had made, … “And Yahweh said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”  And the woman said, “The nahash – serpent deceived me and I ate.” “And Yahweh said to the serpent “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all livestock and more than every beast of the field.  On your belly you are to go, and eat dust all the days of your life. “And I put enmity-hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed.  He (Messiah) shall crush your head and shall crush His heel.”…

Extra Biblical References to the Fall of Lucifer

Although the Scroll of the Life of Adam and Eve and the Scroll of Enoch are not canonized scripture we feel they are most important to include in the larger picture of the Fall.

The Scroll of the Life of Adam & Eve  from “The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament”  translation R.H. Charles         “…And when she heard this Eve understood that (it was) the devil (who) had persuaded her to go out of the river, and she fell down on her face on the earth and her sorrow and groaning and wailing was redoubled.  And she cried out and said: ‘Woe unto thee, thou devil.  Why dost thou attack us for no cause? What hast thou to do with us?  What have we done to thee? For thou pursuest us with craft?  Or why doth thy malice assail us?  Have we taken away thy glory and caused thee to be without honor?  Why does thou harry us, thou enemy (and persecute us) to the death in wickedness and envy?”

“And with a heavy sigh, the devil spake: ‘O Adam! all my hostility, envy, and sorrow is for thee, since it is for thee that I have been expelled from my glory, which I posses in the heavens in the midst of the angels and for thee was I cast out in the earth.’  Adam answered, ‘What dost thou tell me?  What have I done to thee or what is my fault against thee?  Seeing that thou hast received no harm or injury from us, why dost thou pursue us?’

“The devil replied, ‘Adam, what dost thou tell me?  It is for thy sake that I have been hurled from that place.  When thou wast formed.  I was hurled out of the presence of God and banished from the company of the angels.  When God blew into thee the breath of life and thy face and likeness was made in the image of God, Michael also brought thee and made (us) worship thee in the sight of God; and God the Lord spake: Here is Adam.  I have made thee in our image and likeness.’

“And Michael went out and called all the angels saying: Worship the image of God as the Lord God hath commanded.’ And Michael himself worshiped first; then he called me and said: ‘Worship the image of God the Lord.’

“And I answered, ‘I have no (need) to worship Adam.’  And since Michael kept urging me to worship, I said to him, ‘Why dost thou urge me?  I will not worship an inferior and younger being (than I).  I am his senior in the Creation, before he was made was I already made.  It is his duty to worship me.’

“Worship the image of God, but if thou wilt not worship him, the Lord God will be wrath with the.’  And I said, ‘If He be wrath with me, I will set my seat above the stars of heaven and will be like the the Highest.’

“And God the Lord was wrath with me and banished me and my angels from our glory; and on thy account were we expelled from our abodes into this world and hurled on the earth.  And straightaway we were overcome with grief, since we had been spoiled of so great glory.  And we were grieved when we saw thee in such joy and luxury.  And with guile I cheated thy wife and caused thee to be expelled through her (doing) from thy joy and luxury, as I have been driven out of my glory….”

 

I Enoch – Ethiopian Translation by Richard Laurence

Chapter 7

1It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to them, elegant and beautiful. 2And when the angels, the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamoured of them, saying to each other, Come, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men, and let us beget children. 3Then their leader Samyaza said to them; I fear that you may perhaps be indisposed to the performance of this enterprise; 4And that I alone shall suffer for so grievous a crime. 5But they answered him and said; We all swear; 6And bind ourselves by mutual execrations, that we will not change our intention, but execute our projected undertaking. 7Then they swore all together, and all bound themselves by mutual execrations. Their whole number was two hundred, who descended upon Ardis, which is the top of mount Armon. 8That mountain therefore was called Armon, because they had sworn upon it, and bound themselves by mutual execrations. 9These are the names of their chiefs: Samyaza, who was their leader, Urakabarameel, Akibeel, Tamiel, Ramuel, Danel, Azkeel, Saraknyal, Asael, Armers, Batraal, Anane, Zavebe, Samsaveel, Ertael, Turel, Yomyael, Arazyal. These were the prefects of the two hundred angels, and the remainder were all with them. 10Then they took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery, incantations, and the dividing of roots and trees. 11And the women conceiving brought forth giants, 12Whose stature was each three hundred cubits. These devoured all which the labor of men produced; until it became impossible to feed them; 13When they turned themselves against men, in order to devour them; 14And began to injure birds, beasts, reptiles, and fishes, to eat their flesh one after another, and to drink their blood.15Then the earth reproved the unrighteous.

Chapter 8

1Moreover Azazyel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered. 2Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways. 3Amazarak taught all the sorcerers, and dividers of roots: 4Armers taught the solution of sorcery; 5Barkayal taught the observers of the stars, 6Akibeel taught signs; 7Tamiel taught astronomy; 8And Asaradel taught the motion of the moon, 9And men, being destroyed, cried out; and their voice reached to heaven.

Chapter 9

1Then Michael and Gabriel, Raphael, Suryal, and Uriel, looked down from heaven, and saw the quantity of blood which was shed on earth, and all the iniquity which was done upon it, and said one to another, It is the voice of their cries; 2The earth deprived of her children has cried even to the gate of heaven. 3And now to you, O you holy one of heaven, the souls of men complain, saying, Obtain Justice for us with the Most High. Then they said to their Lord, the King, You are Lord of lords, God of gods, King of kings. The throne of your glory is for ever and ever, and for ever and ever is your name sanctified and glorified. You are blessed and glorified. 4You have made all things; you possess power over all things; and all things are open and manifest before you. You behold all things, and nothing can be concealed from you. 5You have seen what Azazyel has done, how he has taught every species of iniquity upon earth, and has disclosed to the world all the secret things which are done in the heavens. 6Samyaza also has taught sorcery, to whom you have given authority over those who are associated with him. They have gone together to the daughters of men; have lain with them; have become polluted; 7And have discovered crimes to them. 8The women likewise have brought forth giants. 9Thus has the whole earth been filled with blood and with iniquity. 10And now behold the souls of those who are dead, cry out. 11And complain even to the gate of heaven. 12Their groaning ascends; nor can they escape from the unrighteousness which is committed on earth. You know all things, before they exist. 13You know these things, and what has been done by them; yet you do not speak to us. 14What on account of these things ought we to do to them?

Chapter 10

1Then the Most High, the Great and Holy One spoke, 2And sent Arsayalalyur to the son of Lamech, 3Saying, Say to him in my name, Conceal yourself. 4Then explain to him the consummation which is about to take place; for all the earth shall perish; the waters of a deluge shall come over the whole earth, and all things which are in it shall be destroyed. 5And now teach him how he may escape, and how his seed may remain in all the earth. 6Again the Lord said to Raphael, Bind Azazyel hand and foot; cast him into darkness; and opening the desert which is in Dudael, cast him in there. 7Throw upon him hurled and pointed stones, covering him with darkness; 8There shall he remain for ever; cover his face, that he may not see the light. 9And in the great day of judgment let him be cast into the fire. 10Restore the earth, which the angels have corrupted; and announce life to it, that I may revive it. 11All the sons of men shall not perish in consequence of every secret, by which the Watchers have destroyed, and which they have taught, their offspring. 12All the earth has been corrupted by the effects of the teaching of Azazyel. To him therefore ascribe the whole crime. 13To Gabriel also the Lord said, Go to the biters, to the reprobates, to the children of fornication; and destroy the children of fornication, the offspring of the Watchers, from among men; bring them forth, and excite them one against another. Let them perish by mutual slaughter; for length of days shall not be theirs. 14They shall all entreat you, but their fathers shall not obtain their wishes respecting them; for they shall hope for eternal life, and that they may live, each of them, five hundred years. 15To Michael likewise the Lord said, Go and announce his crime to Samyaza, and to the others who are with him, who have been associated with women, that they might be polluted with all their impurity. And when all their sons shall be slain, when they shall see the perdition of their beloved, bind them for seventy generations underneath the earth, even to the day of judgment, and of consummation, until the judgment, the effect of which will last for ever, be completed. 16Then shall they be taken away into the lowest depths of the fire in torments; and in confinement shall they be shut up for ever. 17Immediately after this shall he, together with them, burn and perish; they shall be bound until the consummation of many generations. 18Destroy all the souls addicted to dalliance, and the offspring of the Watchers, for they have tyrannized over mankind. 19Let every oppressor perish from the face of the earth; 20Let every evil work be destroyed; 21The plant of righteousness and of rectitude appear, and its produce become a blessing. 22Righteousness and rectitude shall be for ever planted with delight. 23And then shall all the saints give thanks, and live until they have begotten a thousand children, while the whole period of their youth, and their sabbaths shall be completed in peace. In those days all the earth shall be cultivated in righteousness; it shall be wholly planted with trees, and filled with benediction; every tree of delight shall be planted in it. 24In it shall vines be planted; and the vine which shall be planted in it shall yield fruit to satiety; every seed, which shall be sown in it, shall produce for one measure a thousand; and one measure of olives shall produce ten presses of oil. 25Purify the earth from all oppression, from all injustice, from all crime, from all impiety, and from all the pollution which is committed upon it. Exterminate them from the earth. 26Then shall all the children of men be righteous, and all nations shall pay me divine honours, and bless me; and all shall adore me. 27The earth shall be cleansed from all corruption, from every crime, from all punishment, and from all suffering; neither will I again send a deluge upon it from generation to generation for ever. 28In those days I will open the treasures of blessing which are in heaven, that I may cause them to descend upon earth, and upon all the works and labour of man. 29Peace and equity shall associate with the sons of men all the days of the world, in every generation of it.
