  • 1. 1 Demystifying Lucifer "How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star [Lucifer], son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! [Isaiah 14:12]
  • 2. 2 Popular belief about Lucifer  Many Christians believe that back around the beginning of time, the devil was once named Lucifer. Lucifer was created by God, and was once a perfect and beautiful cherub or angel. He was created to serve and worship God, but he was created with the ability to have freedom of choice. Lucifer chose to serve himself instead of God. His heart became filled with pride because of his beauty, and he became rebellious (disobedient) against God. He believed he could be like God the most High. God then cast Lucifer out of heaven because of his sin…and he then set about tempting humanity to sin..
  • 3. 3 Close examination of Lucifer  Lucifer is a Latin word meaning “light-bearing”  Most translations do not use this word as it is ‘Latin’  The correct translation is “Day Star”
  • 4. 4 Morning Star - Venus  Venus reaches its maximum brightness shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset, for which reason it is often called the Morning Star or the Evening Star.
  • 5. 5 Morning Star - Venus  Venus is always brighter than any star (apart from the Sun).  The orbit of Venus is inside the orbit of Earth  Venus "overtakes" the Earth every 584 days as it orbits the Sun.  As it does so, it changes from the "Evening Star", visible after sunset, to the "Morning Star", visible before sunrise.
  • 6. 6 Evening Star  The orbit of Venus is inside the orbit of Earth.  When Venus is on one side of the Sun, it's trailing the Sun in the sky and brightens into view shortly after the Sun sets, when the sky is dark enough for it to be visible. When Venus is at its brightest, it becomes visible just minutes after the Sun goes down.  This is when Venus is seen as the Evening Star.
  • 7. 7 Morning Star – Announcing the arrival of Light  When Venus is on the other side of the Sun, it leads the Sun as it travels across the sky.  Venus will rise in the morning a few hours before the Sun.  Then as the Sun rises, the sky brightens and Venus fades away in the daytime sky.  This is Venus the Morning Star.
  • 8. 8 Significance of 'stars' in scriptures  The star was the ancient emblem of sovereignty  I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near: a star shall come out of Jacob, and a scepter shall rise out of Israel; it shall crush the forehead of Moab and break down all the sons of Sheth. [Numbers 24:17]  saying, "Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him." [Matthew 2:2]
  • 9. 9 Significance of stars in scriptures  It is well known that sun, moon, and stars are emblems, in prophetic language, of rulers & kingdoms.  Stars represent lesser powers:  And God made the two great lights-- the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night-- and the stars. [Genesis 1:16]  Then he dreamed another dream and told it to his brothers and said, "Behold, I have dreamed another dream. Behold, the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were bowing down to me." [Genesis 37:9]
  • 10. 10 Stars represent lesser powers  Then sang Deborah and Barak:  Jdg 5:2 "That the leaders took the lead in Israel, that the people offered themselves willingly, bless the LORD! ... Jdg 5:9 My heart goes out to the commanders of Israel who offered themselves willingly among the people. Bless the LORD. ... Jdg 5:14 From Ephraim their root they marched down into the valley, following you, Benjamin, with your kinsmen; from Machir marched down the commanders, and from Zebulun those who bear the lieutenant's staff; ... Jdg 5:15 the princes of Issachar came with Deborah, .. Jdg 5:20 From heaven the stars fought, from their courses they fought against Sisera.  The leaders who faught the battles are called stars
  • 11. 11 Stars represent lesser powers (cont..)  Stars represent lesser powers:  Isa 13:1 The oracle concerning Babylon which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw.  Isa 13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger, to make the land a desolation and to destroy its sinners from it.  Isa 13:10 For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be dark at its rising, and the moon will not shed its light.  Isa 13:11 I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant, and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.
  • 12. 12 Stars represent lesser powers (cont..)  Oracle concerning Babylon  To make the land a desolation  Sun and Moon - King & Queen  Stars - Princes  Will not shed its light Metaphorical representation of the calamities that were coming upon Babylon - No Light from Leaders ==> Destruction of leaders leading to chaos

  • 14. 14 Stars represent lesser powers (cont..)  God's Jugments on the nations: Come near, you nations, and listen; pay attention, you peoples! Let the earth hear, and all that is in it, the world, and all that comes out of it! The Lord is angry with all nations; his wrath is on all their armies. He will totally destroya them, he will give them over to slaughter. Their slain will be thrown out, their dead bodies will stink; the mountains will be soaked with their blood. All the stars in the sky will be dissolved and the heavens rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree. [Isa 34:1-4] Symbolic

I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star." [Revelation 22:16]  The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. [John 1:9]
  • 16. 16 Jesus is A morning star  2Pe 1:19 And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts,  2Co 4:6 For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

You have become like us!'  Isa 14:11 Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, the sound of your harps; maggots are laid as a bed beneath you, and worms are your covers.  Eze 32:2 "Son of man, raise a lamentation over Pharaoh king of Egypt and say to him  Eze 32:18 "Son of man, wail over the multitude of Egypt, and send them down, her and the daughters of majestic nations, to the world below, to those who have gone down to the pit:  Eze 32:21 The mighty chiefs shall speak of them, with their helpers, out of the midst of Sheol: 'They have come down, they lie still, the uncircumcised, slain by the sword.'

I will devote them to destruction, and make them a horror, a hissing, and an everlasting desolation.  Jer 51:7 Babylon was a golden cup in the LORD's hand, making all the earth drunken; the nations drank of her wine; therefore the nations went mad.  Jer 51:20 "You are my hammer and weapon of war: with you I break nations in pieces; with you I destroy kingdoms; Babylon and its king could not see it was GOD who made him King of Kings. But they declared in the pride of their heart it was their OWN doing!
  • 30. 30 The role of Babylon in God’s plan – “God rules in the kingdom of men”  Dan 5:21 He was driven from among the children of mankind, and his mind was made like that of a beast, and his dwelling was with the wild donkeys.

Babylon ruled the world from 606 - 538 B.C. Nebuchadnezzar had planned that his kingdom would last forever, but God gave this dream to show this would not be so. Babylon would dominate only the early portion of human affairs.

  • 42. 42 How could Tyre have known about the God of Israel?  King David and Solomon had positive influence on the kings of Tyre  Hiram, king of Tyre was very influential in building God’s temple  2Ch 2:5 And the house which I build is great: for great is our God above all gods.  1Ki_5:1-11; 1Ki_9:10-11; 2Ch_2:3-16  And Solomon sent to Huram the king of Tyre, saying, As thou didst deal with David my father, and didst send him cedars to build him an house to dwell therein, even so deal with me. Behold, I build an house to the name of the LORD my God, to dedicate it to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and for the continual shewbread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts of the LORD our God. This is an ordinance for ever to Israel. [2 Chronicles 2:3-4]
  • 43. 43 Tyre had a relationship / covenant with Israel?  Amo 1:9 The LORD said: I will punish Phoenicia for countless crimes, and I won't change my mind. They broke their treaty and dragged off my people from town after town to sell them as slaves to the Edomites.  2Ch 2:12 Hiram also said, "Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, who made heaven and earth, who has given King David a wise son, who has discretion and understanding, who will build a temple for the LORD and a royal palace for himself.  Tyre was a ally of Israel since David’s time  They were to be a guardian to Israel and God allowed them to prosper.  Once they became rich they had no respect for the true God of Israel and declared themselves as God and did wicked things  The friendly relations between Tyre and Israel (Solomon supplying grain and oil in return for Hiram's timber, metals, and workmen) were again renewed when Ahab married the Sidonian king Ethbaal's (or Ithobal king of Tyre, according to Menander, in Josephus Ant. 8:13, section 2) daughter. Exam ple ofIniquity
  • 44. 44 “until iniquity was found in you”  Eze 28:16 By the multitude of your goods they have filled your midst with violence, and you have sinned.  “multitude of your goods ”, “violence” all refer to a literal king and not a mystical “Lucifer/Venus”.  Joe 3:4 You people of Tyre and Sidon and you Philistines, why are you doing this? Are you trying to get even with me? I'll strike back before you know what's happened.  Joe 3:5 You've taken my prized possessions, including my silver and gold, and carried them off to your temples.  Joe 3:6 You have dragged the people of Judah and Jerusalem from their land and sold them to the Greeks. Examples of Iniquity

  • 46. 46 The fate of Lucifer  Popular beliefs have it that Lucifer was cast onto the earth (punished) to torment man (seems like a reward!)  But in v18 we are told that he was “destroyed” by fire and turned to “ashes”  So if you 'believe' in a Mr. Lucifer he was burned to ashes and does no longer exist "in the sight of all"  Eze 28:18 By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries; so I brought fire out from your midst; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all who saw you.
  • 47. 47 The fate of Tyre  Alexander of Macedonia occupies Damascus and, after a siege lasting seven months, destroys Tyre during which there is great carnage and the sale of the women and children into slavery.  Alexander ordered all but those who had fled to the temples to be put to death and the buildings to be set on fire.  Eze 28:18 By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries; so I brought fire out from your midst; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all who saw you.  Amo 1:10 So I will send a fire upon the wall of Tyre, and it shall devour her strongholds."  Joe 3:8 I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, to a nation far away, for the LORD has spoken."
