Lucifer was once an angel (precisely the anointed cherub that covers, Ezek. 28:14) described verily as the son of the morning. He has become a profane thing because he fell in love with his glory and beauty and wisdom; he eminently became proud and self-centered. His prideful rebellion was demonstrated by five (5) “I will” statements against God. The five statements that Lucifer made as recorded in Isaiah 14:13-14 are;
1. I will ascend into heaven
2. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God
3. I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest side of the north
4. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds
5. I will be like the Most High
These words of Lucifer were from the abundance of his heart (or were the exact intentions of his heart). Many people including believers are self-centered and full of pride; thinking about themselves only. All they care for is things directly related to them. This attitude must be done away with. The Bible says “Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished.” (Prov. 16:5) Lucifer became an abomination and was thus cast as a profane thing from the presence of God. Proud people who are into the “I” or “I will” lifestyle will be treated no lesser than Lucifer. The fact of this matter is that God resists the proud and the self-centered. For this reason God made five strong utterances against this prideful entity, as recorded in Isaiah 14:15-20 that Lucifer will be;
- Thrown into hell (or Sheol, which is the remote slopes of the Pit)
- Gazed upon (in other words to make him a public spectacle)
- Talked about (mocked and scorned)
- Cast out of the grave like carcass (or abominable thing)
These are the five (5) words of Jehovah God uttered against reprobate Lucifer. These imperatively do not only apply to Lucifer but to everyone who behaves like he did. The most dangerous thing to happen is when God speak, for His words always prevail over every thought, word or imagination. It is properly safe to obediently subject to God than to be filled with pride.
