Did it ever occur to you that you were being deceived
when you were taught only the bad things about Satan?
Were you ever taught that Satan Was Once Our Chief Priest?
you ever taught that even though he is evil,
he is still, today, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty?
and that if you don't know that, it will be easy for him to deceive you into worshiping him
when he stands where he ought not, claiming that he is Christ, during the end time?
of those sons, was named Lucifer, which means "morning star",
a title of great honor.
also read from Job 38:7 that at the creation of this beautiful earth,
the "morning stars" formed the chorus as they sang together
while all the rest of the sons of God cheered for great joy.
was among those morning stars who sang. (Job 38:7
"When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?")
Let's read about this "morning star", Lucifer, in the Book of Ezekiel.
Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God;
[13 ... continued] every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Here's the definition of the Hebrew word "workmanship".
mela'kah, mel-aw-kaw', Hebrew 4399; from the same as Hebrew 4397 (mal'ak);properly deputyship, i.e. ministry; generally employment (never servile) or work (abstract or concrete); also property (as the result of labor) :- business, + cattle, + industrious, occupation, (+ -pied), + officer, thing (made), use, (manner of) work ([-man], -manship).
No, you say, you never heard such a thing!
in verse 13 that "every precious stone" adorned him.
This means that Satan wore the "Breastplate of a Priest of God",
Yes, and verse 14 will show he was "anointed" to this position by our Father.
see, these stones listed in verse 13
are exactly the same as the stones that the Levitical priests wear in this earth age.
Why do you think Satan was called "The tree who knew both GOOD< and>EVIL" in the Garden of Eden?
Exodus 28:17-21 And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones:
the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row.
 And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.
 And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
Note to the deeper scholar: This entire third row is missing from Ezekiel 28:13 in Hebrew, but it is supplied in the Septuagint.
 And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.
 And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.
So we now understand that this "morning star", Lucifer,
was a high priest of God even over the children of God.
Ezekiel 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth;
and I have set thee so:
thou wast upon the holy mountain of God;
thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
the first earth age Lucifer walked up and down in the midst of God's Children,
who are those "stones of fire" we just read of in the last verse.
see, our Father is a consuming fire (spiritually).
That's why these stones are called stones of fire for they are His children.
Your documentation is found in Hebrews 12:29 "For our God is a consuming fire."
Satan really had it made at one time, didn't he?
He had it ALL, as we say.
Now read this next verse about him.
 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
God ALSO gave all of His children, you and me and Lucifer, FREE WILL,
so Lucifer, once a beautiful morning star,
lost his brightness, his light,
and now became Satan,
the dark one, the evil one.
Here are the Hebrew words for "perfect" and "iniquity", respectively.
tamiym, taw-meem', Hebrew 8549; from Hebrew 8552 (tamam); entire (literal, figurative or moral); also (as noun) integrity, truth :- without blemish, complete, full, perfect, sincerely (-ity), sound, without spot, undefiled, upright (-ly), whole.
`evel, eh'-vel, Hebrew 5766; or avel, aw'-vel; and (feminine) avlah, av-law'; or owlah, o-law'; or olah, o-law'; from Hebrew 5765 (`aval); (moral) evil :- iniquity, perverseness, unjust (-ly), unrighteousness (-ly), wicked (-ness).
Ezekiel 28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence,
and thou hast sinned:
Hey, he loved THINGS and MONEY!
most important thing we must know about Satan
is that as Ezekiel tells us in Chapter 28 verse 12,
he was full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Even though he is evil, he is still, today, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
It will be very easy for him to deceive Christians into believing he is Christ
when he returns to earth in the end times at the sixth trump.
can (and should) assume that you have
previously been mislead about Satan
and are or might be deceived.
For many shall come in my name,
saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
many preachers today don't speak of God or His Word the things that are
