Lucifer:
(Angel of Light – Father of Lies)

 

Lord I pray your word would minister life to its readers to your glory in Jesus name. Amen, Hallelujah!

I pray that we all have a new revelation concerning our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I pray we grow to know and love him better as we yield to him and He helps us surrender fully to the will of God the Father, Amen.

I want to attempt scratching the surface of this subject. “Lucifer” for it is so large and vast. I will be dealing with it as the “Angel of light” (2 Corinthians. 11:14) yet the father of lies. “…When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44)

First, let me make a distinction here between The Bible, The Word of God and Scriptures.

The Bible is a book with the recorded words of the saints as they were led by the Holy Spirit to write. You will not find the word “Bible” anywhere in the Bible for it is derived from the Greek word “biblion” meaning “Book”.

Christ is the Word of God, NOT the Bible; but His words are recorded in the Bible, but they are without spirit. (Logos in Greek; meaning –something said) Recorded words are the letter, not the Spirit. “…for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life” (2 Corinthians 3:6) Bur when the words are spoken, they come alive, (they become life) “…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63b

When Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Peter and Paul spoke of the scriptures, they used the word Scriptures, not the Word of God. The Bible refers to Bible verses as scriptures; the Bible refers to the Word of the Lord or God as spoken or Spirit. Scriptures and Spirit are not interchangeable. There is no conflict in what has been written by the Spirit of God with what you will hear God speak to you; but what you hear will be exactly tailored to your condition and will be words that comes alive to give life as you speak it by and for yourself. (Rhema -the spoken word)

Now haven said that, let us go into the Bible to get the Scriptures that reveal Satan himself as the angel of light and how he has so cleverly and very subtly gotten to change and water down some translations of the Bible.

In 2 Corinthians. 11:13-15 we read “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works”. Over the years, he has succeeded in raising his personal army of “professionals” to counter the truth of the Word of God –Jesus. But in the end it is all going to be a gargantuan exercise in great futility.

It is written in Isaiah 14:12-14 “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! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” The word LUCIFER can only be found here in the King James Version of the Bible only. So I ask, why do most new Bible versions omit the name of Lucifer from their texts? Simple! Many theologians erroneously believe that these passages are strictly addressed to the kings of Babylon and Tyrus. Their theories, however, are not based upon sound doctrine but upon faulty theology, as an examination of the original Hebrew text will reveal. No thanks to the deceptively persuasive fabrications of that fallen angel, Lucifer. Many other translations that I have looked in have a substitution in place. We will get there in a minute.
We read in Ezekiel 28:12-15 “Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”

The far reaching prophecies in Isaiah 14:12-14 and Ezekiel 28:12-15 contain a clear revelation of Satan’s origin.

Check this out. The prophet Ezekiel says of this evil creature, “Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God” (Ezekiel. 28:13). The king of Tyrus was never “in Eden the garden of God”. Ezekiel continues, “the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. (Ezekiel. 28:13). No human being was “created” after Adam and Eve. Humans are born, not “created, after Adam and Eve.

The prophet Isaiah says of this evil being, “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer (Isaiah. 14:12). The king of Babylon was never in “heaven”. Jesus Christ said, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” (Luke 10:18). The apostle John said that “there was war in heaven…. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Revelation. 12:7, 9).

So we know by the scriptures that Isaiah 12 and Ezekiel 28 are not only speaking of natural human kings but of the evil spirit behind them, “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” (Ephesians. 2:2). The book of Job says, “And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” (Job 1:7). The apostle Paul tells us that “Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians. 11:14).

The scriptures plainly reveal that Satan, Lucifer, is a real evil spirit being, and not a ‘thought’ or ‘force’ in man’s mind. Some argue that the name “Lucifer” in the English KJV Bible was erroneously inserted into the text. However, English is not the only language to use the name “Lucifer”. Other ancient Bible translations, printed before the 1611 English Authorized Version (KJV), also use some form of “Lucifer”: “lucifere” (Czech); “Lucero” (Spanish); “Luceafar” (Romanian); et al.

This clearly goes much, much beyond any earthly ruler and harmonizes with the scriptural picture of Satan’s close relationship with world governments (Daniel. 10:13; Ephesians 6:12; John 12:31). These passages picture Satan’s pre-fall splendor as well as his apostasy through pride and self-exaltation against God.  He has a consuming passion to be worshiped. He even tried it with Jesus “…All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9;) and in heaven when he thought to himself… I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isaiah. 14:14) (Revelation. 13:4-15; I Corinthians. 10:20). In his fall, Satan drew a vast number of lesser celestial creatures with him. “As ‘the deceiver of the whole world’ (Revelation. 12:9), his primary method is that of deception, about himself, his purpose, his activities, his coming defeat.

 

The Hebrew word, heylel, which is translated Lucifer in Isaiah 14:12, entered the English language through Greek and German. In the Greek we have Helios, the sun god. In German, this became hellen, from which came the word helder, meaning, “clear” or “shiny.” But there is also a sense of “blinding,” that is, blinded by the light, in this; and so heylel entered English as “hell” a covered place, a place of darkness as if blinded, a place “far off from God.” Heylel, when split apart can read bright or clear god, or god of hell. The early Christian church clearly understood that Heylel was a proper noun, and that Lucifer matched it not only in the meaning of the name, but also in character.

So, what happened that the early Christians knew Lucifer as Satan, and that even Satanists know Lucifer is Satan, but modem Christians today say there is no Lucifer and that the title of “morning star”, a title claimed by the Lord Jesus Christ to himself, (Revelation 22:16) “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star is to be applied to Satan in Isaiah 14:12?

It all started at the time of the Reformation and the Enlightenment, when, like I told you earlier, Satan’s “professionals” began to question the veracity of the text of Scripture. New archaeological discoveries and information about Babylonian, Canaanite, Greek, and Mesopotamian religions were allowed to alter the meaning of the words of Scripture, a “new hermeneutics (the study of the methodological principles of interpretation of the Bible) as old as Genesis 3:1. The recent movement in Christian Churches to place “the morning star” or “day star” in Isaiah 14:12 is not only ill founded on historical, spiritual, and exegetic grounds, (an explanation or critical interpretation of a text) but helps to set the stage for the spirit of the antichrist to fulfill Revelation 13:8 when “…all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”

Praying to a New God: have you taken time to listen to the lyrics of most hit songs today? Nothing glorifies the dignity of man, talk more of God. It is usually to the god of Self aggrandizement, an unsolicited exhibition of moral decadence, Sex and Alcohol display in the name of musical videos and praise to the god of Money.

Look at movies like “The Bat Man”, “Iron Man” “Spider Man” “The Fantastic Four” Men in Black” and all those seemingly harmless looking heroic movies. Cartoons for the children, all loaded with violence, sorcery and magic. The main characters are all trying to save the world from some alien. They all look harmless, but it’s all Satan’s ploy to subtly present a new “SAVIOR” to the world and take attention away from the TRUE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD –JESUS. So, as children grow older, with the television as their companion, there will be this conflict in their subconscious about who the true savior is. For parents who are too busy to make out time for their children, to introduce them to the true savior of the world who is Jesus the word of God and inculcate the scriptures of God in them for it says “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”, (Proverbs 22:6) those children are easy target for Satan’s indoctrination. In his characteristic manner of deception, he has great appeal to the three main senses of man namely the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. There is more than enough waning in the scriptures for the believer.
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost, in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4)

“But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils” (1 Corinthians 10:20)

 

Pounding to penetrate this generation, Satanic, soul seducing and entrapping lyrics have drifted from the ‘metalica’ crazy rock music to the ‘middling’ soul music market. This shift from the counter-culture to the common place has likewise occurred as the philosophies of the occult underground are bent on indoctrinating the unsuspecting Bible reader. Jesus is “…the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star” (Revelation 22:16) NOT Lucifer.

 

The Doctrine of Satan: The Name Game

The Public Relations campaign required to transform the public’s image of Satan, from his true evil character to one which would inspire worship, is monumental. It rests upon the transformation of his identity. He is using all available means. Television, Radio, Books, Movies any and every other means conceivable even the Book that talks about the creator, The Bible.

Historically, Isaiah 14 has been used as the singular biography of Lucifer, shedding unique light upon the “mystery of iniquity.” In verse twelve Lucifer is in heaven; in verse fifteen Satan is in hell. The intervening verses expose his pride in the five “I wills,” each a rung in his descent into hell. (I will,” is also the official motto of the U.S. city sporting zip code 60606. In 1966, this same city hatched the New International Version of the Bible. NIV) I ask, is it a coincidence? Well, maybe so but really, I don’t think so.

But Jesus has come to us for us to live forever, hallelujah He reigns!  The creator took on the form of man on the journey to save us from ourselves. Hallelujah to His name, Jesus the Christ. Amen, Hallelujah!

 

The passages above are the object of Satan’s insane rancor and consequently his opposition. They reveal his arrogance (verse 13 and 14), how he is responsible for much of the world’s misery (verse 17) and his inevitable end (verse 15 and 16). He is soundly and inescapably indicted in Ezekiel 28, but is unnamed and designated “the anointed cherub.” (Ezekiel 28:14) Which he really was.
 

His ambition is to be “like the most High” (Isaiah 14:14) to be worshiped. Something he still longs for today. These verses in these new translations sweep away that illusion, presenting him transparently. It was a mission accomplished. He had to engineer his “professionals” to find a way to remove the word “Lucifer” from such an unflattering context and replanted into a “like-the-most-High” context, the feat is accomplished in all new bible versions; these are excepts. The KJV remains uncorrupted.

NIV

How you have fallen from heaven O morning star, son of the dawn…but you are brought down to the grave.

  NASB

How you have fallen from heaven O star of the morning, son of the dawn…you will be thrust down to Sheol.

  ASV

How art thou fallen from heaven, O day-star, son of the morning…Yet thou shalt be brought down to Sheol.

  KJV

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!…Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell. Isaiah 14:12,15

 

Twentieth century versions have removed the name Lucifer, thereby eliminating the only reference to him in the entire bible. The word Lucifer then falls to the realm of the poets and writers of mythology and ceases to be an identifiable character of biblical origin. He is thereby divorced from the truth concerning himself. In John 8:44 Jesus said, “the devil…is a liar, and the father of it.” He can now have whatever characteristics he desires.

 

“Morning Star” Not In Hebrew

The change in new versions does not spring from the original Hebrew language, but from the ‘theology’ of Satan’s “professionals” the new version editors. The NIV’s wording parallels exactly the view expressed by NIV committee member R. Laird Harris. He asserts that Isaiah 14 is not about “Lucifer” and his descent to “hell,” but about a king from Babylon and his interment in the “grave.”

The NIV’s version of Harris’ view is one link in a chain tied to New Age Luciferian Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. She was a Russian scholar of ancient wisdom literature who, along with H. S. Olcott and Anagarika Dharmapala, who were instrumental in the Western transmission and revival of Theravada Buddhism. She, like the new versions and new theologians, denies the fall of Lucifer. Blavatsky wrote the script for the 20th century scribes saying:

 

“Now there are many passages in the Bible that prove on their face, exoterically, that this belief was at one time universal; and the two most convincing are Ezekiel 28 and Isaiah 14. Christian theologians are welcome to interpret the great War before Creation…if they so choose, but the absurdity of the idea is too apparent.”

 

But an examination of the original Hebrew texts will dispel any illusion that “morning star” is an acceptable substitute for the word “Lucifer.” The Hebrew word for “Lucifer” is “heylel, ben shachar,” which is accurately translated, Lucifer, son of the morning.” The NIV and NASB give an English translation as if the Hebrew said, “shachar kokab, ben shachar” or morning star, son of the morning (or dawn). Yet the Hebrew word for star (kokab) appears nowhere in the text. Also ‘morning’ appears only once, as the KJV shows, not twice as new versions indicate. The word kokab is translated as ‘star’ dozens of other times by NIV translators; morning or dawn is likewise used hundreds of times. New version “professional” editors know the Hebrew word boger kokab is ‘morning star’ since it is used in Job 38:7. If God had intended to communicate ‘morning star’, he could have repeated it here, He is not verbose. He says what He means and means whatever He says, He is GOD. The word He chose here is heylel, it appears nowhere else in the Old Testament, just as “Lucifer” appears nowhere else.

 

Why “Morning Star”?

The matching of Lucifer with the morning star rises not from the Hebrew Bible but from classical mythology of the “professionals”, a fountain of bitter water not intended by God as our “fountain of living waters” (Jeremiah 17:13). Reference works concede that the switch is based on “…classical mythology for the planet Venus.” Just because Satan has convinced the heathen world to connect him with Venus, the morning star is no basis for the repetition of that “myth” by Christian “professional” scholars. But I believe the time for myths has come. In 2Timothy 4:3 – 4 we read…“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables”. The word ‘FEBLES” is the Greek word muthos: from which we get the word ‘myths’

 

With the pretext that the English of the King James Version of the Bible (KJV) is archaic, the “professionals” got “commissioned” to simplify it for you and I of “simple minds” who may not be able to understand it. “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise” 1Corinthians 1:27

Last week I stopped at the point I was showing you how Myths have now become accepted and written as part of the “New Simple English Bible”. No thanks to the “professionals”. I then ask…

 

 

Who is the true “Morning Star”?

The ultimate blasphemy occurred when “Lucifer” was removed and was replaced with the “morning star” in Isaiah 14:12 as I showed you earlier. The fact and honest truth is, Jesus Christ is the “morning star” and He identified Himself as such in Revelation 22:16 “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star” and 2 Peter 1:19. “…as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts”. Do you get it? With this switch, “Morning Star” for Lucifer, Satan not only slyly slipped out of the picture but lives up to his name “the accuser” “for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night” (Revelation 12:10) by attempting to make Jesus Christ the subject of the matter in Isaiah 14:12. Jesus is now to be seen as the rebel. The NASB compounds its role as malefactor by placing the reference 2 Peter 1:19 next to Isaiah 14:12 to solidify the notion that the passage refers to Jesus Christ rather than Lucifer. Why not? The name has been substituted. In using this reference the NASB becomes the willing marionette, like a child’s puppet on strings, manipulated at the whim and caprice of the puppeteer, this time the devil. Like the voice of the ventriloquist, camouflaged and assiduously diverting all attention to the puppeteered dummy in his hand. The devil, costumed in sheep’s clothing of ravenous wolves has numerous ‘professionals” at his disposal he “commissioned” to do and undo. “But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.” 2 Timothy 3:9

 

 

  1. Swineburn Clymer the New Age Rosicrucian leader has his occult treatise very much concurring with the new versions’ perversions of scriptures regarding the daystar. He concludes in this one short sentence and stated most clearly one of the greatest occult truths.

“Lucifer’s Spar to Be “The Morning Star”

Meaning “with an eye to be “…like the most High” (Isaiah 14). Lucifer has tried to infer that he is the “Morning Star.” Right from the compendium on black magic, The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly Palmer Hall, (a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is most famous for his 1928 work titled The Secret Teachings of All Ages) to the increasingly popular New International Version of the bible, (NIV) the “Morning Star” is used as a synonym for Lucifer. Manly Palmer Hall comments:

“The pentagram (a figure of a 5-pointed star usually made with alternate points connected by a continuous line and used as a magic or occult symbol) is used extensively in black magic. It signifies the fall of the Morning Star.”

The New Age Luciferian Helena Petrovna Blavatsky that I talked about earlier in this write up echoes,

“The pentagram…is the Morning Star.”

It is written in the Theosophical Glossary, used as a major resource of dogma by the New Age:

“The Christian savior is made to say of himself in Revelation XVI:22, [sic] I am the bright morning star or Lucifer

Christians, without suspecting the real meaning… welcomed the Morning Star, Venus and Lucifer. The Trinity was in truth composed of the Sun (the Father) Venus (the Holy Ghost) and Lucifer as Christ the bright and morning star. The Verbum (the Word) and Lucifer are one.

 

If you doubt this please show me where the word “TRINITY” is in the bible. This was the genesis of it all. But you and I know better. When we use the word “TRINITY” we know who we are talking about. It is God the Father, Jesus the Christ and the Holy Spirit. Satan has always been a thief and a spoiler as indicated in his three fold ministry, to steal, kill, and destroy: (John 10:10)

Prior to the “falling away” and apostasy of this current generation of scholars I call “the professionals”; there was a general consensus that Jesus Christ alone was the Day Star. In “Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible” (1871) by Robert Jamieson foretold the current name game.

“Daystar: a title truly belonging to Christ and hereafter to be assumed by antichrist”

Likewise timeworn (1913) “The Pulpit Commentary: Isaiah” by H.D.M. Spence states:

“The title daystar is truly Christ’s but will be confiscated by the antichrist of whom Babylon is a type and mystical Babylon is a forerunner. And Satan will assume it, who is the spirit that energizes the heathen world power Babylon that now energizes the apostate church and shall at last energize the secular antichrist…and his champion the false prophet”

Stages of Initiation

Remember I said I was looking at Lucifer as the angel of light? There are steps he has taken towards his PR. The first step in Satan’s Public Relations campaign was to remove his name from the indictment in Isaiah 14:12, which is the only historical non-fictional documentation of his true nature. Evidently it was much easier to excise the one word “Lucifer,” than to retain it and replace the remaining verses of chapter 14 with the compliments he has currently deceived New Age leaders into writing.

There are FIVE STEPS of Satan’s Image transformation.

But before then, let me squeeze this in. There are four elements around us that cannot be overlooked. The Earth equivalent to solid, Water – liquid, Air – gas and Fire is equivalent to plasma. I will deal with them all in time. For now, I will talk about the AIR.

The air has power of its own and Satan is the prince. I want to believe you must have come across this scripture in Ephesians 2:2 “…according to the prince of the power of the air” who happens to be Satan.

How do you receive your TV, Radio, Telephone, the Internet and other wireless signals? It’s through the air waves of cause.  He knows it’s one of the most important things man needs for survival and just typical of his ministry, he has to destroy. He has to pervert and take control, steal what things there are in the air.  Same reason he blocks prayers and people’s progress from getting to the throne of Grace. Like in Daniel 10:13. That is why it is called BREAKTHROUGH. For you to gain easy access to heaven for answered requests, you need breakthrough prayers to break through the barriers, the blanket of darkness he used to imprison believers and hinder prayers. That is that.

Now back to where we left off. There are FIVE STEPS of Satan’s Image Transformation. The following five steps represent Satan’s progressive and gradual image-transforming campaign.

STEP ONE
The Denial of the Existence of Satan

Some are deceived to believe that “Satan…is not a Person but a Force.”  “The Devil is a metaphysical abstraction.”  “There have never been any Devils or disobedient angels.”
according to Blavatsky’s Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine

“According to the New Age doctrine…Satan is a mere collective thought form.” (Can: Lucifer Connection)

“The devil is the flesh and its desires.” Clymer, The Science of the Soul

“Devil: the mass of thoughts…that fight against the truth.” Filmore, Metaphysical Bible Dictionary

The editors of the ‘New’ Greek New Testament (Westcott and Hort) from which all new versions are translated agree and assert that the devil is not a person but a general “power of evil.” Can you beat that?

 

STEP TWO
The Assertion that Lucifer and the Devil are Separate and Distinct Entities

Ancient writings such as the Book of the Secrets of Enoch and the essays of Pythagoras made a distinction between Lucifer and Satan which migrated into the writings of New Age godmother H.P. Blavatsky. The current adoption of her belief that “Lucifer has never been the name of the Devil” has been noted by New Age observers.

This is the Luciferic roots of the New Age. In part this comes about as a result of the New Ager’s absurd contention that though Lucifer is lord, he is not Satan. Satan is said to be a figment of the Christian imagination. Lucifer is not Satan. Lucifer is a good angel. (Marrs, Dark Secrets of the New Age) Do you see Lucifer his “professionals” in action yet?
The Lucifer of the New Age is not the Lucifer of the bible, they say. Lucifer is thus misidentified and given a positive image in the New Age…New Agers have divorced Satan and Lucifer. Many of them believe that Satan is a myth invented by the church in the Middle Ages.
(Carr, The Lucifer Connection)

The following definitions from two patently New Age dictionaries expose this movement’s blatant adoption of Step 2.

Metaphysical Bible Dictionary: “day-star (Lucifer)…The passage in Isaiah regarding the day-star or Lucifer…is supposed to be Satan…this is a mistake; the text has no such inference…In 2Peter 1:19 day-star is symbolic of the Christ lights springing up in individual consciousness.”

The Dictionary of Angels: Lucifer (‘light giver’) erroneously equated with the fallen angel (Satan) due to a misreading of Isaiah 14:12…The name Lucifer was applied by St. Jerome and other Church Fathers. Milton …Vondel…Blake…and Meredith (helped create his wrong identity). Actually Lucifer…is the brightest angel, even the Child of Light.

Step 2 has seized some seemingly traditional groups. Albert Pike (from the Freemason)issued the following instructions to the Masons.

“Yes, Lucifer is God…The doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophic religion is the belief in Lucifer…you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th degrees: The Masonic religion should be…maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine

The most shocking aspect of Step 2, the alleged distinction between Lucifer and Satan, is its appearance in the majority of ‘Christian’ reference books. We would expect as much from New Age sources, but pseudo-scholarship and what appears to be much copying from each other, has Christians parroting the New Age line.
Lucifer has been removed from most Bible dictionaries and commentaries. If he appears at all, the reference quickly assures the reader that Lucifer is not Satan. The accompanying samples will stun the reader, showing the theological effect of the removal of Lucifer’s name from new versions. They are evidence for Carr’s claim that “New Age ideas infiltrate the church and appear under a Christian imprimatur. (A license to print or publish especially by Roman Catholic Episcopal authority (b): approval of a publication under circumstances of official censorship” Merriam-Webster’s 11 collegiate Dictionary
“They remind readers of Kurt Koch’s warning in The Devil’s Alphabet: “He operates through the latest scientific methods.”(Kurt Koch is a Swiss Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church)

Eerdman’s The Bible Dictionary

Lucifer is not included in this dictionary. They refer the reader from ‘Lucifer’ to ‘daystar’ (Jesus Christ) saying, “another name for morning star. 2Peter 1:19, Revelation 2:28. Some commentators link the idea with an ancient myth about the banishment of a divine person.” p. 267

The New Standard Bible Dictionary Funk and Wagnel, Editor, M. W. Jacobs
Lucifer is not included. They refer the reader to ‘daystar’ which states, “(Applied to Lucifer and Christ.)” p. 173

Dictionary of the Bible McMillian Pub., (ed. McKenzie)
Lucifer is not included.

Interpreter’s One Volume Commentary on the Bible
“The theme of the downfall is vividly elongated in a mythological picture. The tyrant is likened to the Day Star.” (Blasphemy!) p. 341

Dictionary of Proper Names and Places in the Bible
“Scholars argue that
Isaiah 14:12 should be interpreted as a reference to a Canaanite myth.” p. 657

Hurlbert’s Handy Bible Encyclopedia Jesse Hurlbert
“The word has nothing to do with the devil.” p. 207

Interpreter’s Bible Dictionary
“The meaning of what the tyrant has done is set forth in the myth of Heylal…another mythological element is the mount of assembly.” p. 261

Twentieth Century Bible Commentary Davies Richards
Lucifer is not included.

 

The trend to ignore the KJV’s Lucifer/Satan connection is shared by Luciferians and new Bible version editors. Both Blavatsky and NIV, NKJV committee member Lewis Foster (was an American screenwriter, film/television director, and film/television producer 1898-1974) both steer readers away from the Bible and toward sources such as these commentaries.

THE LUCIFERlAN

“The English KJV translation of the Bible can never be relied upon.”

  NEW VERSION EDITOR

“It demands the aid of a good commentary to study the meaning of the passage.”

 

Constance Cumbey is a lawyer and an activist Christian author. She observed the fruit of this crazy rapidly growing trend in the Christian community and comments.

“Interestingly, as many New Age groups work to extol Lucifer’s name, there has been a parallel movement within Christianity to clear his name and disassociate him from any satanic identity.” Lest his character be maimed, Satan stole his new name–another move in his game. Check out this verse in the book of Luke when Jesus rebuked Satan in Luke 4:8     

 

King James Version                                                  ASV, NASB, NIV, RSV, BBE etc               Luke 4:8 “Get thee behind me SATAN               The statement is OMITTED

 

To challenge those who say the changes in the new versions do not affect any major doctrines, Herbert Lockyer’s classic “All the Doctrines of the Bible” calls Isaiah 14, “The biography of the devil (where)… Lucifer…becomes Satan.” He observes the current dilemma:

“How shocked all true believers were to read that Dr. Ramsey, when Archbishop of Cambridge, answered Cambridge undergraduates’ question about Satan, he said…

“I do not draw from the Bible the inference that there is an individual monarch of evil.”

One wonders from what kind of Bible the genial Archbishop reads. It must be one from which all references to a personal devil have been expurgated. The Archbishop of Canterbury, ecclesiastical head of the Church of England cannot find the devil in his Bible.”  Can you believe that? You know “something dey shele” (things are happening)

 

STEP THREE
The Declaration that Lucifer is a Good Angel and is the Christ Himself

Garnishing his name with adulation is the next step. Higher levels of initiation embrace this tenet which seems to be held by a quickly growing circle of occult elitists. This slippery descent into the “depths of Satan” begins with buttery blandishments by New Age high priestess H.P. Blavatsky who says:

“Lucifer represents…Life…Thought…Progress… Civilization…Liberty…Independence…Lucifer is the Logos…the Serpent, the Savior”

David Spangler, contributing editor of New Age Journal assents:

“Lucifer…is an angel of God’s love…the angel of man’s inner evolution…He prepares man in all ways for the experience of Christhood. Christ is the same force as Lucifer”

Vaulting themselves into unparalleled profanity, New Agers like Benjamin Creme is a Scottish artist, author, esotericist, and editor of Share International magazine. He addresses Lucifer as, “the sacrificial lamb.” Channeller J.Z. Knight (an American mystic teacher and author) transmits, “In Lucifer lies divinity.” Alice Bailey (was a writer and theosophist 1880-1949) concurs, “Lucifer is the Ruler of Humanity.”

STEP FOUR
Lucifer’s True Identity as Satan is Revealed using the Anagram, a Transposition of Letters, To Obscure It.

‘Blinds’, as the esoteric call them, include scrambling the letters of a name to hide the true meaning of a word from the uninitiated. They confide that:

“The name isn’t important. It is the letters” …they say.

Now gods of the New Age include Sanatan and Sanatsiyata, the Hindu sons of Brahman and San-tisita (it is Satan) of the Buddhists, shown holding a white LOTUS.

The “shady trees” of the Bible are also turning into “lotus plants or trees”(like the buddists’) in the new versions. See Job 40:21 &22 below

(KJV) “The shady trees cover him with their shadow…” V22           

(RSV) “For his shade the lotus trees cover him” V22, (NIV) “The lotuses conceal him in their shadows…” V.22,   NLT “The lotus plant gave it shade…” V.22, etc. In all of the new versions I looked up, they had the same lotus written. In other words, the Hindu or Buddha gods (Satan) provided the shade and not just the SHADY TREES

New Agers say each name is “concealed anagrammatically,” “and are aliases,” and the same time are anagrams used for Occult purposes. An anagram is a word or phrase made by transposing the letters of another word or phrase to make it Obscure, (or using the same letters to make another word). 

See examples of ordinary anagrams below:

CD for Disc Enslave idiots for Television ads Debit card is              Bad Credit
Woman Hitler   for Mother in-law Bag manager  for Garbage man      Dormitory   for          Dirty Room

Constance Cumbey like I told you is an American lawyer an activist and a Christian author. She says Sanat Kumara is being touted as “our God” by New Age leaders Benjamin Creme, David Spangler, Church Universal and Triumphant and the California Association of Sananda and Sanat Kumara. (The big question) Is Santa,(or Satan) the great usurper of Christ’s attention at Christmas, an anagram?” Do you blame her? The names have the same letters, just like an anagram.

Don’t forget they already tried to switch Lucifer’s name in Isaiah 14:12 and replace it with the Day star or Morning star. A title that rightly belongs to Jesus (Revelation 22:16)

Generally scholars concur that Christ was born in the fall (October) on the 4th day of the feast of tabernacles. December 25 is actually the feast in honor of the birth of the son of the Babylonian queen of heaven, (Jeremiah 44:17-25) later called Saturnalia by the heathen Romans or Semiramis in Greek.

STEP FIVE
The Bare Facts are Revealed; The Rhetoric is Gone. It is Satan Himself Behind All of the Cosmetic Semantics.

The four previous steps have seen Satan, with the aid of the New Age and galvanized by the new bible versions and commentaries. They create a web of subterfuge, each thread designed to obstruct man’s path to the truth expressed in Isaiah 14. To speed the cultural transition from Step 1 to Step 5, New Age leaders quote from the book of Jude and conclude, “Paul, Peter, and Jude reverenced Satan. They finally disclose to their ‘most advanced’ initiates that Isaiah 14 is actually about Lucifer and Luke 10:18 is about Satan of course with a lie, that they have gone too far to back out now. Why not? He is the father of lies.

Too Close for Comfort: Those who have embraced Step 5 stand dangerously close to or even are in the church and the culture as a whole, in fact too close for comfort. One would have expected that Satan worship would be reserved for cultic groups like the Ogbonis of the south west of Nigeria, Igbes or amadioha worshipers of the south east, the Maguzawa, the Bori (mountain and river gods) and the Tsinbirbira (spirits worshipers) of the core North all in Nigeria. Yet these days children’s games like Skeltor, books and cartoons like Harry Potter all loaded with witchcraft and sorcery bring such ideas right into the home, initiating innocent children.

A generation or two earlier, the full moon was an invitation to young teenagers to moon light games, outdoor activities. Not anymore, stories of students who are members of the occult and secrete societies abound. What about young ladies and men who would boldly declare to you that they are gay? They will tell you they were born that way, God made them gay they claim. That is another lie of Satan. It is nothing but a matter of choice, they chose to be. The other day my pastor talked about a little girl, less than ten years of age who vehemently refused to enter the children’s class in church. She eventually told the Sunday school teacher the reason; she confessed she was a witch.

Step 5 has impregnated this brood of nestlings; the seeds will incubate until Revelation 13:4 is hatched. Satan will even more glaringly have his worshipers, worship him with unbelievable impunity. The “devils and hateful bird” of Revelation 18:2 have perched as well, among the well-feathered nests of our society. The rich and the poor have given Satan the nod as his New Age god “praying to a new god.” This ends here, for now. God help us.
