“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and all ye that dwell in them, WOE UNTO THE INHABITERS OF THE EARTH AND OF THE SEA! FOR THE DEVIL IS COME DOWN UNTO YOU, HAVING GREAT WRATH, BECAUSE HE KNOWETH HE HATH BUT A SHORT TIME.” Revelation 12:12
The Devil, as some call him, old slew foot or his original name Lucifer.
Most today even deny his existence, he likes it that way, funny thing for someone who does not exist to have a translation of his name into every known language on earth.
To fight your enemy, you must understand your enemy.
So who is he really? He started out as God’ s right hand angel, one of the three majors, Michael the warrior, who fights alongside the Lord. Gabriel the messenger, and Lucifer the most beautiful of all God’s creations. He was the divine Praise and worship leader of the angelic host of heaven. He was a “covering cherubim” a protector.
He is a very real and powerful being in the universe and fortunately for us, what power he has is NO match for God who hold ALL power.
He wasn’t content with his star’s place in the heavens, filled with jealousy and desiring that his great beauty be worshipped above the Most high he chose to rebel.
For a peek into his warped thinking, Isaiah 14: 13,14 “For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of the God: I will set upon the great congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.”
Upon the loss of his heavenly position, his gift of praise now became perverted, bringing his music upon the earth, deplorable lyrics of sex, violence and often disrespect and outright bashing against God. Music so powerful that it becomes ingrained into your mind so that at any whim it may be placed on repeat, to be heard over and over inside your head, to drag you back to whatever state you were in when you first heard that particular tune and bringing all the emotional attachments from that period in life with it.
I have often wondered the number of the souls that were lost to hell during the disco craze of rampant sexual lyrics, flashing lights, one night stands and cocaine use.
His fall brought the perversion of his job as a covering, protecting, cherubim and now the innocenct would become his target. He is personally responsible for every abused elder, every tortured animal and every raped and sadistically tormented child.
The saints will judge the fallen angels and I for one will rejoice when he is banished to the only place that he can be held.
I think Toby Mac had the right idea with the song, “Hey, Devil” the only way to deal with him is to hide under the wings of God and when he tries to send traps and temptations, tell him you don’t need his junk, to get it on down the road.
He is pure evil and so underestimated, I agree with the Amish, if at all possible, do not even say his name, don’t encourage him in any way, “never give him place” and “resist the devil and he will flee from you” is what the Bible teaches us about dealing with him. DON’T DEAL WITH HIM!
But never underestimate him and never fall for the trap that he is not real.
Remember he is not like God nor will he ever be. Jesus has all power in heaven and earth and is the only being who is omnipresent, only He can be in all places at all times.
The problem for many believers is that they don’t want to hear the word “demons” and most certainly not the word “devil” but if you are to see people freed, you can not fear him, fear only God.
I am not suggesting that you run out and take on the devil, (I have seen people who do want this but to me it “rushing in where wise men fear to tread”) But if the Lord is prompting you, never be afraid to pray down his strong holds, the power of the Holy Ghost can drive anything out of bodies or homes, but it has to be his spirit prompting and leading the prayer.
Here is HIS END, here are the words HE FEARS, this is HIS DEMISE.
Isaiah 14:9-12 “Hell from beneath is moved (excited about) for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they shall speak unto thee, Art thou become as weak as we? art thou become like unto us? Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols (his music) with thee; THE WORM (MAGGOTS) IS SPREAD UNDER THEE, AND THE WORMS COVER THEE.”
HOW ART THOU FALLEN FROM HEAVEN, O LUCIFER, SON OF THE MORNING! HOW ART THOU CUT DOWN TO THE GROUND, WHICH DID WEAKEN THE NATIONS!
He will have no kingdom, he and his followers will be cast into the same hell, he will not be their leader, as stated above, he will be just as they.
Our God who holds all power in heaven and earth, the keys to death and hell, and will forever reign, he and he allow will reign supreme.
