EVERYDAY LIFE WITH JESUS CHRIST

TOPIC : THE DOWNFALL OF LUCIFER THROUGH PRIDE.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
If there is anything God hates – it’s pride. God hates it. Not just in a little way. Despite how much He loved Lucifer; despite the privileges given unto him – according to scholars, lots of power was given to Lucifer; God specially created him so that each time God looks at him, He will be delighted and joyful.
Lucifer walked in the midst of the fire where no angel dare pass and God will say, “That is the power of my creation” and the angels will blow the trumpets.
But one day, he said to himself, “I am more privileged than all other angels. I have been walking in the midst of this fire. How glorious will it be if I was the one on that throne – they will know what I will do.”
It was as if he was so powerful. He went to angel A, “You see, I’m more powerful than you. And I’m ready to take you to a position of great honor, only if we can join hands together and impeach God. When I’m now God, your throne will be beside me. The way I use to pass through the fire – you’ll be the one to be doing that.”
He went to another angel and told him the same thing. He gathered one – third (⅓) of the angels. The Bible says their number is like the sand of the sea. He gathered them and it was as if the kingdom of God divided into two.
And there was war in heaven. The one -third (⅓) of the angels contended with the angels of God.
And there was war in heaven!
Revelation 12:7 KJV
“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,”
One day as I was going to Church – I can still remember that year. As I got to a particular junction, I just heard a voice from heaven. It said, “Because of his iniquity, he has turn to horror.” I asked, “Who is that?” He said, “Lucifer!”
I began to search the scriptures, “Who is that person?” And I found his name and began to pray about him. God gave me a revelation and I saw how privileged this angel was but pride altered everything. And now, because of him God prepared the Lake of fire. I pray that any root of pride shall be uprooted and catch fire.
NONE OF SELF but ALL OF CHRIST!
Like a dream, Lucifer was seen falling down. He could have never imagined that. As he was falling, his shades of glory became darkness. As he was falling down, he was losing sight of the glory of heaven.
God took away his beauty and the holiness, but the power was still there. As he fell down, “So, I have lost the glory!” The angels began to blame him but he said, “Hold on. There is another plan. One day as I was walking in the midst of the fire I heard some things. He has a plan. We just have to be patient. We will establish our kingdom here. We will do the way they are doing also.”
Do you know that Satan in hell wants to imitate God? There are some things that the angels are doing in heaven that the demons are also doing for satan . And he still has an agenda, Immediately God created man he vowed, “This is the time to revenge.”
Which area of your life have you allowed the devil to put his foothold? SELF MUST DIE!
You must decrease for Him to increase. It is my prayer for us all that every trace of self will die.
This is because naturally after the fall, man went his own way and we have inherited the same thing.
This is why we need sanctification, so that we can be delivered from the Adamic nature; because as long as there remain any self will – I conquered, self that is exalting itself against the will of Christ, our consecration and service is incomplete.
Prayer : Spirit of humility posses my life in Jesus Christ name.
