|The Purpose And Will Of God In All Creation. by Kingdomtruth: 2:03pm On Aug 22, 2021|
Waoh! To be honest, I just can't be waohed enough, about the person of God. I feel there should be no one adjective or word whatsoever to describe or qualify His being. The word for me I think is INDESCRIBABLE. Yes, He is indeed INDESCRIBABLE. I've actually come to discover that: everything in the universe was created and put in its place; not by mistake, but according to how God destined it to be, i.e according to His will, plan and purpose. See proverbs 16:4. Meaning that, He had everything in mind; before creating them. Even before the world began. See Jeremiah 1:5.
THIS WRITE-UP, SEEKS TO REVEAL THE WILL AND PURPOSE OF GOD FOR OUR LIVES.
I've always been tutored and had this belief as a achild and even in the recent past; that the Devil was cast and thrown down to the earth from heaven by God; because he (Devil) grew PROUD and became DISOBEDIENT. Always trying to contend with the ALMIGHTINESS of God. While that might be true on the literal level; connotatively, it is not. I've come to discover a hidden truth to this; that is very much supported by both the BIBLE and the SPIRIT. And I think you should see it too. No wonder Christ said," you will know the truth; and only the truth will set you free" See John 8:32.
PLEASE COME WITH ME ON THIS.
First off, the TRUTH that runs through this write-up, is anchored on these following scriptures. Ezekiel 28:1-19 and Isaiah 14:3-21. Carefully going through these scriptures, you will discover the following:
A BRIEF BIO-DATA OF THE ONE YOU KNOW AS DEVIL, BEFORE HIS FALL.
1) He was first called LUCIFER while in heaven with God. And the name LUCIFER means: 'bright morning star'. You've ever heard of that phrase?, that's who he was.
2) After he was thrown down to the earth, he became the infamous DEVIL that we all refer him as today. The name DEVIL means: 'accuser of the brethren' Revelation: 24:10
3) You must have also heard of the fallen angels. Yepp! That's one of them right there. When he fell, he fell with a host of his kind (other angels, about 1/3 of them to be precise) and together, they constitute the band of all the fallen angels that began to torment the world. See Revelation 12:4-9.
4) He was the chief angel.
5) He was about the most beautiful person that has ever been created by God.
6) Also one of the most powerful.
7) By far one of the most honoured.
He was a symbol of perfection.
9) A man of exquisite wisdom.
10) He was immortal (meaning he would have lived forever)
CONVERSELY, A BRIEF BIO-DATA OF HIM (DEVIL) AFTER HIS FALL.
1) He became sinful.
2) He became violent.
3) He became proud.
4) He became disobedient.
5) His wisdom was corrupted.
6) He became boastful and showy.
7) He became selfish.
He moved from an angel in-charge of other angels to a demon in-charge of other demons that fell with him.
9) He became a lier.
10) He became mortal (meaning he will die(second dead)).
Now, I'm aware that you may want to think in the opposite according to those scriptures mentioned above; that there was no where the prophets highlighted the name of Devil.
A LITTLE FACT-CHECK, OF THOSE SCRIPTURES TO BASE MY POINT.
Therein those scriptures, were two(2) prophets(Isaiah and Ezekiel), sent by God to the kings of Tyre and Babylon. Now take note to see that: the characteristics of the Devil as given above, perfectly fit each of those kings ( the kings of Tyre and Babylon) as described each, by the Prophets in those scriptures. You must also understand that; God in His wisdom knew that the Devil was the one functioning and operating through those kings; the very reason why He (God) sent those prophets to address them each as such. Not enough right? Go down!
ANOTHER READILY AVAILABLE EXAMPLE TO BUTTRESS THIS POINT.
Bring your mind, to the example of Christ Jesus and Peter in Mark 8:31-33. When Christ began to reveal to them how He would go to Jerusalem and suffer there; even to the point of dead. Then, Peter responded and said, "God forbid that this should happen to my Lord" Like how can the SON of God be killed by mere mortals?Smiles! In all honesty, as human beings that we are like Peter; nothing seemed wrong with that remark. As Peter was only expressing a genuine concern and love for Christ when he said that. But notice what Christ said,"Get away from me, Satan" Really? Smiles! Like how can you just tell someone to get out; even to the point of referring to him as 'Satan' just because he supposedly had you for good at heart. We all probably would've thought of that, as a 'mean' thing to say by christ. But Christ actually reacted that way; in order to address the Devil that spoke through Peter rather than Peter as an individual; Just like the prophets did, to the kings of Tyre and Babylon as instructed by God in those quoted scriptures above. So in general, whenever you come across any wicked or evil person or ruler; either in the person of Pharaoh as in the bible or any other person around you; then, know that the person, is a figure or a product of the enemy (Satan).
Let me drop my pen here and allow this part to digest. One sure fact is that: this write-up, promises to be a pretty long and continues one. So just sit back, relax and grab for yourself a bag of popcorn with a plastic of soft drink to your side as we ride along in this journey together. Will be right back to continue. Thanks and stay blessed.
