two questions. is satan an angel ???? Jesus Christ the Messiah (which means king of the jews AND king of ALL creation) said that when he comes he will
separate the goats from the sheep and he will say to the goats "DEPART FROM ME you that are Cursed to the FIRE prepared (meaning especially created
for ) the DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS" please note the seperate context of "devil" and angels. satan is not just an angel he must be something higher if
he has his "own" angels (those that chose him over God and still to this day war against every man and God) its pretty hard to find out the truth
about a thing that is called the FATHER OF LIES and pure evil. the devil is only mentioned a few times in the bible, the main point seems to be that
he wants us to worship him instead of God and that in the end his doom cometh and does not wait, he will have no rest or peace and will suffer eternal
torment, basically because he seriously messed with God and God doesnt take prisoners!
another important question is WHEN not WHAT. WHEN did satan fall? has it happened? Jesus said he beheld satan fall from heaven like lightning BUT was
he speaking of something that had happened or something that he had FORESEEN being the only holy son of God. Genesis speak of the serpent being cursed
but not of satan falling. later in the bible like in zecharia we read about satan even being in heaven in a court accusing people before God. thats
basically what the devil is, the ACCUSER.. any and every mistake you make he will be the advocate trying to condemn you to hell (even though he
himself has never as of yet tasted the fire) whereas JESUS is the great advocate for his people, so Jesus is also like a lawyer in the courts in
heaven standing in the place for those who the devil wants to condemn.
also intersting to read about is the time before the flood, angels laid with women producing giants, so there was some form of fall of angelic hosts
at that time aswell.
the most important realisation is that God truely is the LORD and there is none before him, God has USED satan from the very beginning for HIS
purposes. it is GODS WILL that reigns over all creation NOT the devils. the way i see it is satan turned from God in a way that he would never repent
or turn back to God, satan has had power that was GIVEN TO HIM FROM GOD and this power he still holds, HOWEVER God sits above satan and USES satan
..yes even the evil one...to fullfill his plans and objectives. satan has 7000 yrs of judgement hanging over him ..and it will hit when he least
expects it. thats what God has done...he has let it ride.....let it continue.....let his anger come to its fullest before he wipes satan and sin from
the universe once and for all.
those that make it in the end of the end...who escape the fire are those who have a TESTIMONY of what God through Jesus has done for them...so they
could literally stand in a courtroom and speak of how Jesus died for them on the cross and saved them and how he delievered them many times in their
lives....but people who are willing to do that ( SAINTS ) do NOT fear death...thats a major point... that a person must be willing to LOSE his life
and not LOVE HIS OR HER LIFE TO THE DEATH!
FINALLY!!! sure the devil took 1/3 of the angels......but they werent THE ANGELS you should fear. is it not written that immediatly after those days
the SON OF MAN will come in the clouds with great POWER and AUTHORITY with HIS MIGHTY ANGELS???? "behold a KING *jesus* shall RULE in RIGHTEOUSNESS
and princes *jesus's angels/saints* shall RULE in JUDGEMENT!"
