I admit before I begin this post that I have not read the entire thread so if someone has hit on this already then I apologize. I was considering
making this a thread of its own but since this issue was brought up in my thread I have decided to bring this up here.
I again say that I do not purposely want to come off sounding like a holier than thou Pharisee. I know that this is not a Christian website and that I
am not surrounded by committed Christians here. Christ however ate with sinners and I am here to break spiritual bread with all of you.
The problem with this thread is that it is written without spiritual discernment. You must be born of the Spirit to understand Spiritual matters and
be able to discern between good knowledge and corrupted knowledge.
I have no problem at all with believing that Isaiah 14:12 was written about the king of Babylon. What is of greater importance however is that...
Ephesians 6:12 -
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[a]
against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
While the king is being addressed it is really the spirit of Antichrist within him that is the culprit. Biblical patterns repeat themselves! What has
been is what will be!
The same spirit of boastfulness that existed in Lucifer is the same spirit that existed in this king and pride comes before the fall. The argument
that Satan is not a fallen angel by account of the corrupted knowledge of this thread is completely trumped by the eyewitness account of Jesus Christ
18 And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and
over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Angels are held in comparison to stars in multiple places through the Scriptures. The Word is like a two edged sword with a literal meaning and a
spiritual interpretation or reality. Stars are a physical manifestation or representation of very real spiritual beings.
Let me ask you a question. If Satan were confined in the pit of hell then how would it be true that...
1 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the
prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts
of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
How could Satan be the prince of the power of the air and how could we war against powers in heavenly places if Satan and his angels were confined in
There are 3 heavens. The atmosphere, the outer space and then the kingdom of God in the spiritual realm. Satan was booted from the spiritual heaven
where he was at one time a mighty Cherub who watched over the throne of God. Lucifer who is now the Satan has fallen from his original estate but is
still mighty in the heavens until he again falls as described in the book of Revelation.
It is NOT a wrong interpretation that we find in our Holy Bible. Isaiah 14 is correct and reveals a spiritual truth. I urge you to surrender your
lives to Christ and become His child.
