The father of Lies
The History of the impostor
“Long, long ago, Lucifer stood at the right hand of God.He bore the light. He was not the light, but he held the light on high for all the inhabitants of the universe to see. He was the standard bearer, the mightiest of all archangels, and he exercised some of the power of Almighty God Himself in helping to rule the universe. Then pride took its grip. Though he held such a high and honored position, Lucifer was no longer satisfied with bearing the light of God—he wanted to be God Himself.
Lucifer fell. He altered the course of his own destiny. He didn’t have to fall; he chose to fall.
This is when insanity took tight hold on Lucifer. This is when of his own choosing he was transformed from Lucifer, the bearer of light, to Satan, the Devil, the father of lies.
Infested with pride‚ he refused to listen to God. He refused to listen to the other angelic forces and to the Heavenly inhabitants. He refused any and all help to see the right. Because he refused to admit he was wrong and say he was sorry, because he chose to hold on to his pride‚ strong delusion set in. Refusing to humble himself before a powerful and awesome God, his own loving, patient, and understanding Father, Lucifer fell. He altered the course of his own destiny. He didn’t have to fall; he chose to fall. He chose his own course, all because of his lust for power and his proud refusal to choose the humble way.
This is when insanity took tight hold on Lucifer. This is when of his own choosing he was transformed from Lucifer, the bearer of light, to Satan, the Devil, the father of lies, the impostor. This is when the long trek began. From the moment of that decision, he set out on his hostile mission. From that time on, he set out to live at enmity with God, His creation‚ and His children.
When Satan fell, he tried to persuade others of the angels to go with him.Those who accepted his lies became poisoned, drawn away by their own desires. Therefore pride took hold and they were overcome. Hence, Satan and his band of dark angels began to roam the Earth. It wasn’t long before they realized if they were to win others to their side, they would have to come up with a plan, a scheme of some sort‚ something that would convince others to join them rather than continue being loyal and dedicated to the loving and just ways of the Heavenly Father. Having declared his own independence from righteous rule, Satan went into business for himself. His goal was to win as many others over to his side as he could. His purpose was to spread his own insanity and delusion to others; to prove that you could live without God, that you could in fact be God. (A Bible Story from Jesus)
