Isaiah 14:13 For you have said in your heart, “Let me go up to the heavens, let me raise my throne above the stars of El, and let me sit in the mount of appointment on the sides of the north;
Isaiah 14:14 let me go up above the heights of the clouds, let me be like the Most High.”
Satan or Lucifer wants to be worshiped and have his power and authority greater than The Most High – his Creator. I cannot stress the importance and meaning of these verses enough.
Chapter 2 Part A
Before Satan’s rebellion, the universe was in perfect harmony until it went through a paradigm shift. This means that the universe was made conformable, or it was brought into harmony or accord or agreement – following an unbroken sequence under uniform conditions.
Then Satan’s rebellion occurred. Every evil and deceitful false religion, false science, false governance, pagan cultures, rebellion, wars, etc. exists today beginning with the above verses. Evil exists because Lucifer (Satan) is trying to exalt his throne above the Most High. Satan’s power and authority are not absolute.
The book of Job talks about (Satan’s) boundaries and certain latitudes and is controlled by His Creator, who has His own goals and purposes for mankind that supersede whatever Satan wants to do. One might say, He plays Satan like a fiddle. There will be more about why our Father created mankind later.
Two verses that explain Satan’s position and agenda as he has deceived the whole world are as follows:
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was thrown out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who leads all the world astray. He was thrown to the earth, and his messengers were thrown out with him. These deceptions permeate every facet of our society, education, culture, and history. He uses these deceptions to hold the world captive.
II Timothy 2:25 In meekness instructing those who are in opposition, lest somehow Elohim gives them repentance unto a thorough knowledge of the truth.
II Timothy 2:26 and they come to their senses, out of the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his desire.
