Lucifer was a Perfect Creation of God

Christians study about Satan from story books, and from testimonies of Christians, who were dead, visited hell or heaven, came back, and wrote books about them. They present a glorious powerful picture of Satan and makes him a hero or even a god. But they are all filthy lies. Let us see a few things about Satan from the bible. Ezekiel 28:12-15 says, God created Satan as a cherub; and anointed him as the covering archangel. God made him wise and he was perfect in beauty. Satan had access to the Garden of Eden; even to the mount of God. Satan was in such a status, until he deceived Eve at the Garden of Eden. Verse 15 says, "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee." Then Eve caused Adam to sin. God judged all three of them. Some Christians consider Satan to be a rival to God; put him in an equal status with God. They do not realize that Satan is just a creation of God. Satan, Adam and Eve all stood before God in the same status Ė in the status of created beings, and God passed judgment on them. Satan, however, has more power than men because he is an angel, a spirit being. This limited power does not mean that Christians should give undue respect to Satan.

Satan took part in the murder of Jesus

Lucifer knew that God will beget children from humans, to be Sons of God, to be like himself, and to inherit the kingdom of God. But Lucifer wanted that position, to be like the most High God. So, he decided to destroy the plan of God. He deceived Eve, so that she may commit sin, and God may reject Adam and Eve. But Satan could not destroy the plan of God, since God built it upon the fallen man. In Genesis 3:15 God tells Satan: "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." Isaiah 14:12-15 explains everything. 15 says, "Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit." Satan was blinded by pride and by his desire to exalt his throne above the stars of God, he destroyed himself from being the covering archangel, to be Satan. Now Satan knew that Godís plan would be fulfilled through Jesus Christ. And so, Satan took an active part in the crucifixion of Jesus, to destroy the plan of God. John 8:40 says: "But now ye seek to kill me, ... 41) Ye do the deeds of your father. 44) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, ..." Luke 22 says: "3) Then entered Satan into Judas Iscariot, ... 4) And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them." See, Satan was active in killing Jesus. Little did Satan know that this crucifixion was the plan of God; and God said that "thou shalt bruise his heel". So, Satan killed Jesus; but God raised Jesus, and set a precedent by raising the Man Jesus Christ from death, and declared him as his begotten Son, so that those who followed Jesus will also be raised in the same way and be declared as Sons of God. They will inherit the kingdom of God as his Sons. God's plan went through.

Accuser of the Brethren was Cast Down

Jesus was crucified and died. God raised Jesus from the dead. God made him Lord and Christ as in Acts 2:36, "...God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ." Jesus Christ was declared as the begotten Son according to Psalm 2:7 and Acts 13:32-33. The begotten Son was made God according to Hebrews 1:5-9. Jesus Christ was seated on the throne in heaven according to Revelation 12:5. It says: "And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne." At the glorification of Jesus Christ, God send the archangel Michael to cut down Satan and his followers from the heavens of God. So, the accuser of the brethren was cast down. They will have no more access to heaven, as in, Revelation 12:7-10, and Luke 10:18. So, for the last two thousand plus years, Satan is no more an accuser of the brethren before God. Luke 10:19 says: "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you." So, the disciples and followers of Jesus Christ also have power over the activities of Satan and his demons.

Unknowing worship of God and of Satan

When Moses went up into the Mountain to receive the ten commandments; in Exodus 32, rebellious people forced Aaron to make gods to lead them; and Aaron made a golden calf. "4 ... they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt." The golden calf was made on that day, and they said that this god brought them from Egypt. And "5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD." Even Aaron proclaimed that the next day was the feast of the Lord, who is God. So, it is possible that when people are religious and ceremonial, they worship an idle and call it worship of God, without any problem. Let me give you another scenario, which is just the opposite to this, here they worship God. Apostle Paul told the people in Athens in Acts 17:23, "For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you." Here, they worship the true God; even without knowing God. If people are pure in their heart and if the holy spirit guides them, they may worship the true God, even without knowing God. Same way, rebellious people thinking that they are worshiping God, or Jesus Christ, they may be worshiping Satan, who is another Jesus and false Christ. Both are possible. It is according the condition of our heats. And this is recorded in the Bible.

Must Worship God in Spirit and in Truth

Jesus said that worshipers must worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. It is in John 4:23&24. Unless we have spirit, how can we worship God in the spirit? Unless we know the truth, how can we worship in truth? We cannot. John 3:7&8 say that if we are born of the Spirit, we are mysteriously led of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:12 says: if we have received the spirit of God; we will know the things that are freely given to us of God.  Verse 13 says, that the Holy Ghost and the holy spirit will teach us all the things of God. So, the bottom line is that we must receive the Holy Spirit from God to worship God. If not, our worship will be a ceremony and it is just for a show. Worship is, to honor or to show high reverence to God. Some people worship men or even devils. They fall prostrate or on their knees to show respect. In Matthew 4:9&10, and in Luke 4:8, Jesus told Satan to worship God only. So, we must not worship anyone else other than God, even without knowledge.

God is not in Churches and Satan sits there

"Acts 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, 49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;" God says that he will not dwell in the buildings. Still we sing that we stand on the holy ground and say the presence of God fills the church, sanctuary, and pulpit. We worship God in Churches, since we think that he is there. For big meetings we have auditoriums even in stadiums. But Jesus Christ tells in John 4:21-24 that God is neither in the temple nor in the mountain, but he is where there is Spirit and truth. "1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 6:19 know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, ...?" God lives in the hearts of godly people, but not in buildings, and not in churches. But our churches are worship places, that is, they are temples. Further, Let us look at the Churches. The Apostles planted Churches. However, even in the first century itself, the enemy took over the churches. 3 John 1:9 says: "I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not." The very apostle, who founded the church, was rejected from the church. "Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ." Even from the first century, the church had accepted lasciviousness in the name of grace, and denied the only God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. So, the true apostles, God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, were pushed out of churches long ago. But our denominations and religion took over the churches. Now churches are just religious organizations, left with the ceremonies in the name of God. But we will not accept it, since we are born in it, raised in it, it is the part of our society, and our identity; and so it is for us, not for God.

If God is not in churches, who is there? Even though God is not in the churches according to scriptures, Christians pretend that God is present in the churches according to our traditions. So, it was easy for Satan to come into the churches and to take the place of worship, as in 2 Thessalonians 2:4. It says: "... that he (Satan) as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." Christians worship this Satan in the churches as Jesus Christ. So, according to the Bible (Scriptures), Satan has been showing himself as Jesus Christ, receives the worship of Christians, for the last 2000 years. But preachers and theologians say that a man will show up and he will be anti-Christ, and so on. This is ignorance, they are making it up, they want to hold on to their tradition, and fear to go against the world of religion. But no man can become invisible, live a long-life of 2000 years, and sit on all the worship places in the world, and so on. No human can do it. It is Satan, who is a spirit.

If only, those people who followed Satan for lying wonders and signs, would love the truth of God, they could have been saved. Just because they donít have the love for the truth, God has sent a strong delusion to them to make them believe a lie. That is, if they donít believe God and come to him, God will push them away so that they may believe Satan and be lost. 2 Thessalonians 2 says: "10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12) That they all might be damned who believed not the truth," God gave them up; so, they worship Satan as Jesus Christ; and they do not even know about it. Their worship is a fake ceremony, but not of the truth. Truth is what the scripture says, but not what the tradition says. You may think that then all the churches in the whole world must be wrong. Remember, from the whole world, God took one Enoch, one Noah, one Abraham, and God will chose only those, who is in the Spirit and in the truth. God rejects the rest of the whole world. The entire world may be wrong, but God is true.

Satan and his servants Preach False Gospel

The very people of God, who were waiting for the coming of Messiah, crucified him when he came because they did not believe the truth of God (scriptures, prophesies). Things have not changed even today. Even now, people donít want to believe the word of God. But they do believe whatever they want to believe. They will not hesitate to go out of the way to refer to commentaries, different translations etc., until they hear what they want to hear. The natural tendency of the flesh is to believe a lie. Jesus Christ says that the devil is a liar and the father of it. People will believe the devil because he is the father of them. Jesus Christ told the truth and people did not believe him. God forsook them and they worshiped their father, the devil. Jesus Christ says in John 8: "43) Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45) And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not." Most pastors love their monitory benefit including pay checks and they will not mind being a part of unrighteousness to earn it. They speak swelling words of vanity and they themselves are servants of sin, as in 2 Peter 2:18&19. Their latter end will be worse than the first, but those who are clean will escape from them. 2 Corinthians 11 says: "13) For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14) And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." The devil teaches an easy but counterfeit salvation that enables sinning people to declare themselves as saved.

King over bottomless pit is an Angel, but not Satan

Revelation 9:11 says, "And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon." Christian teachers mistakenly take this angel for Satan. No, he is not Satan, but he is a servant of God. Angel Abaddon punishes people by the orders of God. He is not Satan. Satan is fallen angel, evil spirit, and a devil. God created hell to punish the devil in everlasting fire; and he is not king in hell. Matthew 25:41 says: "... everlasting fire, (is) prepared for the devil and his angels:"; and so, they all will be punished in hell.

What will happen to Satan and to his Servants?

Satan continues to rebel against God. Because of his rebellion, when Jesus Christ begins his thousand-year rule, Satan will be bound in hell for thousand years according to Revelation 20:1-3. At the end of the thousand years, God will set Satan free from hell, according to verse 7. After he is freed, Satan will deceive people again and will start a war. After this, God will throw Satan into the lake of fire. 10 says: "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." 12) And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; ... and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works." So, all those who did evil, Satan and all his workers will be thrown in the lake of fire. Christians usually say that their names are written in the book of life because some preachers told them so. Most preachers are liars. See here, the book of life is written according to our works; and if we do not have the works of righteousness, our names will not be there. So, let us obey God. This obedience is righteous works, and go to heaven, but not to the lake of fire with Satan.

Looking for the true gospel? This site has the true gospel!

What is the true gospel and what are false gospels?

Matthew 28:20, & Mark 16:15. Jesus Christ preached his commandments to obey, as his Gospel; it is the true Gospel to inherit Eternal life. Genesis 3:1-4 & 2 Corinth 11:2-4. But Preachers, who are Serpents of Satan, preach the life of man Jesus just to believe, but not to live as a chaste virgin, as the gospel; it is another gospel, which cannot and will not give Eternal life.

What will the true Gospel do?

The true gospel will convert evil people to do good and thereby they will inherit the kingdom in heaven. John 3:19-21 say that people are two kinds, evil and true. Evil doers will not come to the Light, who is God; but people of truth come to God for their deeds to be made manifest. We have good and evil people by our standard of our society or culture. These evil people may be converted to be doers of truth by the power of God, and they may inherit the kingdom of God in heaven.
