As we know in the Old Testament and in the New Testament Names were often changed....
Genesis 17:1-7, 9-12, 14
1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine,
the LORD appeared to Abram,
and said unto him,
I am the Almighty God; walk before me,
and be thou perfect.
2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee,
and will multiply thee exceedingly.
3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him,
4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee,
and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram,
but thy name shall be Abraham;(Abraham means 'father of many nations) for a father of many nations have I made thee.
6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful,
and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
In the New Testament Jesus Christ does the same thing with all His Apostles...Under the New Covenant
Simon became Peter, Saul became Paul.
Mary (Theotokos)however did not because she was not chosen to have a new nature or function later in life; rather she was already chosen from the
beginning - which she gave her consent and freely accepted as seen in Scripture.
Establishes the New Covenant because...A PSALM for the future!
My people did not hear My voice,
and Israel harkened not to Me ...
They gave Me gall for My food,
and in My thirst they gave Me vinegar to drink ...
Let their eyes be darkened,
and their back bend down always.
Pour out Thy indignation upon them: let Thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
Let their habitation be made desolate,
and let there be no One to dwell in their tabernacles,
because they have persecuted Him Whom Thou hast smitten,
and they have added to the grief of My wounds.
Add Thou iniquity upon their iniquity; and let them not come into Thy justice.
Let them be blotted out of the Book of the Living,
and with the Just let them not be written.
They have rejected Me,
that I should not reign over them ... They have forsaken Me and served strange gods....I wonder WHO it is these STRANGE gods are refered to?
1 Kings 8:7-8
Let their eyes be dim so that they cannot see,
and let them walk bent-backed forever with a heavy load.
Psalm 68:24...Prophecy fullfilled.
You stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears,
you always resist the Holy Ghost; as your fathers did,
so do you also.
Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted?
And they have slain them who foretold the coming of the Just One,
of Whom you have now been the betrayers and murderers.
Lucifer was an Angel who God Loved.
Lucifer was the BRIGHTEST of Angels....But became the DARKEST-SATAN!
Lucifer was the first to rebel in pride against his Creator,
and he was followed by many other angels who left God....these fallen ones that followed Lucifer became demons!
But to leave God means to leave life and embrace death.(DEATH means without Gods Presence)
The rebellious/evil spirits left God of their own accord,
and the just Lord also left them,
leaving them to their own will....They became jealous that God created Man and sought to bring DEATH to mankind through ADAM,only partially
succeeding as Prophesy was Fullfilled by the Son of God, Jesus Christ the Lord!
+The struggle of Satan against God and all His creation+
What Pure hatred and EVIL...Thus, Satan being unable to attack God Himself,attack God through His creation,
especially through man,
who has been created in His likeness and image...
Satan takes great pleasure in getting people to become his slave and do his evil work....And likewise Angels of God do their work in relation to being
