Revelation Unveiled

Saints of God Awake! There is much amiss …

The Lucifer Deception!!! (A continuation of “The STARS of Heaven have fallen”)

This is a link to the YouTube of this teaching if you would prefer to listen rather than read.

In our last discussion with respect to the stars of heaven having fallen I had stated that I was going to discuss the myth concerning the devil being portrayed as a fallen angel and I did not go over it very well, so we will do so now. If you have not listened to the YouTube video/audio entitled “Saints Of God Awake!” (The STARS of Heaven have fallen https://youtu.be/MBvO3r_Uxio ) I would encourage you to do so, as it will cause this to be more readily understood.

First, let me say that the deception is so vast and of such magnitude as to be almost unbelievable. However, I will again state that “ALL THE STARS (the leaders of God’s people) HAVE FALLEN TO THE EARTH/earthy/carnal realm no heavenly/spiritual leaders among them. It doesn’t matter what they look like, it doesn’t matter what they sound like, for BABYLON THE GREAT is fallen, is fallen. Where did she fall, fall from, she fell, fell from heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

Why would the Lord say of her she is fallen twice? The original body of believers were alive until the “leaders” of the church embraced secular government (FALLEN). She was again alive for a moment in time when in A.D. 1517 Martin Luther and those who heard the truth broke away from church Catholic. However, the life of that movement was only for a moment in the annals of history as the “leaders” once again embraced secular government. Therefore, HAS FALLEN, HAS FALLEN. Eastern Orthodox religion was also birthed out of the Harlot in A.D. 1057 but it never fell, as it NEVER HAD LIFE for it was simply a still birth. There is much that could be said on these matters but I said I was going to address the issue of the devil supposedly having been an angel, then rebelled and tried to overthrow God.

Second, we state emphatically that the word star or stars is never at any time used by the Spirit of God to represent an angelic or demonic being when being used by the Lord as a symbol. In scripture the term STAR or STARS, when used symbolically, is always in reference to the leader/leaders of God people. As we see it written, “ I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright and morning star” (Revelation 22:16). The Chief Shepherd, the Lord Jesus, here declares himself to be a STAR. It doesn’t get any plainer than that.

Now, with respect to the devil having been a star, we will ask ourselves a question after we look at a couple of things in the scriptures. In the gospel of John chapter 8 verse 44 The Lord Jesus said to the religious leaders of the time, “You are of your father THE DEVIL, and the lusts of your father you will do. He WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

Also, we find it written, “You have been in Eden the garden of God…You are the anointed cherub that covers…You WERE PERFECT in your ways from the day that you were created, UNTIL iniquity was found in you” (Ezekiel 28:13-15).

The question then becomes, was the devil a MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, from the first, from the COMMENCEMENT, or was he PERFECT UNTIL iniquity was found in him? Let us take a look at first mention of the serpent aka the devil in Scripture, remembering that the rule of first mention has to be considered when examining other references to the same thing.

In the King James Version we read in Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”

Again, in the New American Standard Bible Genesis 3:1 we read, “Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden?”

As we can see by these two references the serpent (snake) is put in the class with the beasts of the field which the Lord God HAD MADE. No fallen angel here, or the Lord would not have placed him in the “made beast” category.

It is taught that Satan, in his supposed rebellion, caused a third of all celestial angels to get cast out of heaven because they joined him in trying to overthrow God. They point to And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:7-9). They further use “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth” (Revelation 12:3-4a).

In order for this to be true do you see what has to be done? You have to place Revelation 12:7-9 in front of Revelation 12:3-4a. If the Lord wanted the Revelation in that order HE would have had the Apostle John write it that way. He did not! Man, in order to sell his fantasy with respect to the devil and his angels (messengers) being classified as STARS has to do despite to the scriptures.

A GREAT RED DRAGON of Revelation 12:3 and THE GREAT DRAGON of Revelation 12:9 are not the same entities. We will bring in an excerpt from the book “The Revelation OF Jesus Christ” at this point from the Beautiful Woman chapter, pages 244-246.

Revelation 12:3 – And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads

And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon” This is not “the great dragon…that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,” which we will see in verse nine. We point out for clarity that the Lord, by the Spirit of revelation, says it is A great red dragon, not the great dragon. With certainty we say this great red dragon is none other than the Roman Empire. Let us take a look at it closely.

The Greek word purrhos, here interpreted red, is the same as that used in Revelation 6:4 of the red horse, and is indicative of destruction and bloodshed of a bestial nature, which most certainly describes one of Rome’s facets of personality. Red: as in a destructive, bloodthirsty beast.

The distinction between Beast and Dragon is: 1) Beast – a wild beast: the stress is not on the fact of its life, but on its bestial nature. 2) Dragon denotes, “a mythical monster, a dragon; also a large serpent, so called because of its keen power of sight.” Sight – The field of one’s mental vision (American Heritage Student’s Dictionary). The word dragon is used descriptively here of Rome to point out its keen power of sight (shrewdness).

Compton’s Encyclopedia, book 20, page 273, states, “The Roman genius was great. Nowhere was its skill shown better than in the development of the system which gradually welded the lands conquered by the Romans into a single nation, contented and unified.” Keen visionary sight: great red dragon.

having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads” Again, the number seven speaks of temporal completion. Here we see the Roman Empire with all its heads and all its crowns upon its heads. Rome being the fourth one world secular government and, as we have seen, the number four points to all of creation. And, this fourth beast upon the earth is the last of all the secular one world empires that there will ever be.

These seven heads also point to the fact that this great red dragon has in it all of the other empires which came before it in the Book of Daniel. Babylon (1 head), Medo-Persia (1 head), Grecia (4 heads). Grecia is seen by the Lord as one kingdom (THEIR KINGDOM [singular] {Daniel 8:23}) with four heads. Therefore, Rome, with its one head, gives us seven heads. Here the seventh head (Rome phase 1) is pictured with ten horns on it that have no crowns on them. No crowns points to no power as of yet.

In order to understand this completely you would need to listen to all the YouTube video/audio’s entitled “Saints Of God Awake!” beginning with Part 4 (This Generation – The Great Image https://youtu.be/4YT_SEJZXWI ) and go through them all sequentially so as to have a clear picture of all the prophecies of Daniel which tie directly into what is being brought out here.

These ten horns are the next phase of the Roman Empire that have not come into power yet, the time frame at this particular juncture in history, as brought forth here in Revelation 12:3, is with the Roman Empire phase one in ascendancy. The one we have before us is found in Daniel 7:7 where we read, “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.”

Revelation 12:4 – And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born

And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven” As we are looking at the Roman Empire before the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, for the woman is, “pained to be delivered,” we understand we are looking at a moment in time shortly prior to His birth. Hence, we are looking at something that happened with natural Israel. Can we see anything that would cause us to understand this event?

Drew the third part of the stars of heaven and did cast them to the earth” The Jews had been in league with the Romans since 161 B.C. by covenant (this “covenant with hell, and with death” is brought out by the Lord in Isaiah 28:15-18). The subjection of Judea and Jerusalem by the Romans, with the use of force, took place in 63 B.C. The reason that this forceful subjection took place was because two sons of the high priest were struggling for the crown of Judea, and one of them deceived Pompey. Pompey immediately marched against Jerusalem and a terrible slaughter (of the host [God’s people]) took place. The Jews had at that time three ruling classes: kings, priests and the Sanhedrin (the supreme judicial council of the ancient Jews.) And in 37 B.C. Rome took away the office of king from the Jews and began to rule them with Roman governors. This great red dragon drew a third of the stars of heaven, the leader’s of God’s people, “and did cast them to the earth.”

This same scenario is brought out in Daniel 8:10, “And it waxed great,even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.” Say what they may THIS IS the Roman Empire here in Revelation 12:3-4a and what your hearing here is, with certainty, truth.

and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born”

Rome, in the person of Herod, most assuredly tried to accomplish this. In Matthew chapter two we have an account of the birth of Jesus, the wise men, and Herod. Herod desired of the wise men that when they had discovered where this One that was to be a “Governor, that shall rule My people Israel” (Matthew 2:6) was located they were to come again to Herod and let him know where Jesus was: they did not.

When Herod discovered the wise men were not returning he was wroth, “and sent forth, and slay all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not” (Matthew 2:16-18).

We will continue with another excerpt from the book “The Revelation OF Jesus Christ”, again from The Beautiful Woman chapter pages 247-249, to bring into clear focus Revelation 12:5-8.

Revelation 12:5 – And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne

And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron” The Church, through a handmaid, brought forth the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and He will RULE.

and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne” In the Bible there have been some that have been caught up, but only One to His Throne. Praise You Lord Jesus!

Revelation 12:6 – And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days

And the woman fled into the wilderness” The Lord Jesus has ascended, the Holy Spirit has come and persecution has fallen upon the Church. The wilderness speaks of a place of wandering, of having “no continuing city” (Hebrews 13:14) a place of sojourn. Just as a note, the 1260 days here mentioned are a day for a year as this is a symbolic prophetic passage. Therefore, the period being spoken of is 1260 years.

Revelation 12:7 – And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels

And there was war in heaven” At this same time, at the time of the Lord’s visitation, a war in heaven took place.

Michael and his angels fought against the dragon” Michael being the archangel: Arch means, first. Therefore Michael, being the very first angel that God created, is over all other angels, and the Lord calls them Michael’s angels. These one’s fought against the dragon (please do note that the Holy Spirit said, “DRAGON”, not a rebellious angel named Lucifer).

and the dragon fought and his angels” We see that not only was Satan in heaven, it is disclosed by the Spirit, that his angels, his messengers, his unclean spirits (demons) were there also. How can this be, as no sin can enter into the presence of God?

There could be a book written on this subject alone, but, for our purposes here, we will address this subject clearly and in as few words as possible. He that has an ear to hear, let him hear. We see Satan in the presence of God in the Book of Job.

In Job 1:6 we read, “Now there was a day when the sons (properly angels) of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.”

And we find in Job 2:1 “Again there was a day when the sons (properly angels) of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.”

Also, we see a lying spirit in the presence of, and having a conversation with, the Lord in 1Kings 22:20-23. “And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, You shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets, and the LORD has spoken evil concerning you.” So, again, how did Satan and this lying spirit get into Heaven?

In the Garden of Eden Adam was in the heavenlies as are we now for we see it written the Lord, “has made us to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6). Adam had complete access to God and walked with Him and talked with Him regularly. The Lord God had set Adam over all of His creation. It is Adam, not Satan, of whom it is declared, “How are you fallen from Heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn!” (Isaiah 14:12). When Adam chose to obey Satan, rather than God, Adam fell. When Adam fell, because of his choosing to listen to Satan rather than to God, he gave everything that God had given him to Satan. Therefore, Satan and his messengers could legally enter into the heavenlies, and into the very presence of God, just as Adam had before the fall. Bear with me as we will discuss in more detail the “Lucifer” situation shortly, right now lets continue with what the Lord, by the Spirit, has said here in Revelation.

We find it recorded in Luke 4:5-7 where, “the devil, taking Him (the Lord Jesus) up into an high mountain, showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.  And the devil said unto him, all this power will I give you, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If you therefore will worship me, all shall be yours.” Notice, the devil said, “for that is delivered unto me” The Greek word paradidōmi, here translated delivered, means to surrender, that is, yield up, entrust, transmit. Who was it that surrendered, yielded up, transmitted all the world and its glory to the devil? Adam did! The Lord had entrusted the world and its glory to Adam, and Adam surrendered it all by yielding to the devil. And, because of this, we see Satan and his messengers able to legally go into the heavenlies. God, being a righteous God, could not keep Satan out of heaven until the Second Adam, the Lord Jesus Christ overcame and took back what had been given away. This is why we see a war in heaven at this time, for Jesus had conquered the world, the flesh and the devil.

Revelation 12:8 – And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. Thank you Lord Jesus!

Revelation 12:9 – And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world:  he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him

Please do note that nowhere, not here, not anywhere, is Satan ever called Lucifer. Also, at the time of our Lord’s visitation Satan had the entire world deceived (no light anywhere), and so it would seem, for the most part, does so even now. From the instant of our Lord Jesus’ resurrection the only place Satan or his unclean spirits could inhabit was the earth, the place where he had been from the beginning. Now, to a better understanding of the word Lucifer and who exactly is this one.

In Isaiah the word that is translated Lucifer is, in Hebrew, hêylêl hay-lale’ (in the sense of brightness); the morning star: – lucifer. This definition of hêylêl is from the Abingdon’s Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance. But, it is always important to “prove all things” (1Thessalonians 5:21). So let’s do a more comprehensive word study.

The portion of Isaiah 14:12 that reads, “O Lucifer, son of the morning” in Hebrew reads, hêylêl bên shachar” Let us look at some definitions: hêylêl – means, the morning star, bên – means, a son (as a builder of the family name,) shachar – means, dawn (literally, figuratively or adverbially). Therefore, in Hebrew this literally reads, “O morning star, son of the dawn.”

The word Lucifer is a mistranslation from the Latin Vulgate which reads, “lucero del alba” meaning “the morning star” and should not have been translated as a proper name and most certainly is not a name of Satan.

Having determined that this isn’t a proper name, (therefore Strong’s Concordance is wrong) but rather a descriptive proclamation of someone, let us see if we can determine who is being described from other points of light in the Scripture where we find references to such phraseology.

It is written, “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto you do well that you take heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star/morning star arise in your hearts” (2Peter 1:19). This Greek word phōsphoros light bearing (“phosphorus”), that is (specifically) the morning star (figuratively): – day star. And we know with certainty that the morning star that is going to rise fully in our hearts is Christ.

Also, we find where the Lord Jesus says, “I Jesus have sent My angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright and morning star” (Revelation 22:16). The Greek word here for morning is orthrinos; relating to the dawn: – morning. The Greek word for star is asteēr; a star (as strown over the sky), literally or figuratively: – star.

By these two references we can readily see that the Lord Jesus Christ, in the New Testament, is described as the Morning Star. So, who is this one in the Old Testament that warranted such a descriptive title?  Let us examine the passage from Isaiah 14:9, 12-20 and see if we can discover the answer.

Isaiah 14:9 – “Hell from beneath is moved for you to meet you at your coming: it stirs up the dead for you, all the chief ones of the earth; it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.”

Hell from beneath is moved for you to meet you at your coming” We state emphatically, “the dragon, that old serpent, which is the devil and Satan” (Revelation 20:2) will never go to hell, that is sheol, hades, the place of the the dead. This place is reserved for human spirits which are awaiting the final judgment before finding their place in “the lake of fire and brimstone” which IS the place prepared for the devil and his angels. The lake of fire is the only place in Scripture we can discover where the devil is sentenced to; he will never be in hell.

Isaiah 14:12 – “How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how are you cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations!”

We have already seen the proper interpretation hêylêl bên shachar being, “O morning star, son of the dawn” and what we are going to do is determine who this one is. Here is another item that we need to bring in.

How are you cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations!” This can be as readily translated, “which did weaken/overthrow the nations/people” Satan has never, at anytime, weakened or overthrown the nations or the people. So, what is meant by this, and who is this one that is declared to have done (past tense) this? We will see the answer to these questions as we continue on through the discourse.

Isaiah 14:13 – “For you have said in your 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.”

If the one being referred to here is an angelic being who has determined he is going to overthrow God he wouldn’t have to ASCEND INTO HEAVEN as he would already be there. We also see that this one desires to exalt his throne above the stars of God. And we have proved out that stars, when used symbolically, speak solely of the leaders of God’s people.

Isaiah 14:14 – “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” Clouds, symbolically, speaks of all the saints of God. “Behold, he comes with CLOUDS” (Revelation 1:7), easy enough. There is an extensive study on “cloud” and “clouds” in both the book “THERE IS NO” and “The Revelation OF Jesus Christ.”

I will be LIKE the most High” It is taught that the devil wanted to overthrow and BE GOD.  The one being spoken of here wants to be LIKE the most High. We see it written, “And the serpent said unto the woman, You shall not surely die: for God does know that in the day you eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened and you shall be AS GODS, knowing good and evil.” It’s easy to see that this was not a rebellion in any since to overthrow God, it was a lustful desire to be JUST LIKE GOD.

Isaiah 14:15 – “Yet you shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”

Though this one has said, “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will BE LIKE the most High. Yet you shall be brought down TO HELL, to the sides of the pit. They that see you shall narrowly look upon you, and consider you, saying, Is this the MAN that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; that made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. But you are cast out of YOUR GRAVE like an ABOMINABLE BRANCH, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet. You shalt not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land, and slain your people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned” (Isaiah 14:14-20).

This one being spoken of here shall be brought down to hell. As we have stated the serpent will NEVER be brought down to hell, he is destined for the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10). This one is referred to as a MAN. The devil has never, at any time, been called a MAN as we see here. This one “opened not the house of his prisoners” and we see it written, “in Adam ALL DIE.” It is Adam that took us prisoner and would not, could not open the house of his prisoners. This one has a grave. This one is declared to be “an abominable branch” and the Lord Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the BRANCHES.” This one destroyed his land, and we read the Lord GOD said to Adam, “cursed is the ground for your sake; in sorrow shall you eat of it all the days of your life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to you” (Genesis 3:17-18).

Therefore, we can unequivocally state that the one being called,“O morning star, son of the dawn” is not “that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan” for, first and foremost, the Holy Spirit has never, at any time, referred to an angelic or demonic being as a STAR. Without question this fallen one is Adam, for we see, “and so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam a quickening spirit” (1Corinthians 15:45).  And, in this light, we can easily see the first man Adam is, without a doubt, the first “morning star, son of the dawn (the beginning of creation)” of Isaiah 14:12, and the Lord Jesus Christ is the last morning star. In Revelation 22:16 we read, “I am the root and offspring of David, the bright and morning star.”

For we clearly understand, “the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” No fallen angel here.

And furthermore we say with certainty, ALL THE STARS (the leaders of God’s people) HAVE FALLEN TO THE EARTH/earthy/carnal realm no heavenly/spiritual leaders among them. It doesn’t matter what they look like, it doesn’t matter what they sound like, for BABYLON THE GREAT is fallen, is fallen.

THIS IS THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, PREPARE YOU THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE STRAIGHT HIS PATHS. Amen.
