Isa 14:12... How artht thou FALLEN FROM HEAVEN, O LUCIFER "HEYLEL", SON OF THE MORNING! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Here in Isa 14:12... the Hebrew word "HEYLEL"... is translated by the KJV... translators as "LUCIFER". The original Hebrew word "HEYLEL" Strong's H1966 meaning: "light-bearer" shining one, morning star,- bright star or splendid star (Gesenius' Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon). In this context of scripture in Isa... where the word "HEYLEL" is used is referring to and describing "A MAN" the KING OF BABYLON-- not Satan who is a spirit. It is VITAL TO NOTE: the word "HEYLEL" translated "LUCIFER" is found "ONE TIME" in ALL of scripture. Based on the dogmatic teaching of the old mind of religion YOU WOULD THINK that the word "LUCIFER" would have been referred to and referenced many, many times in scripture. THUS providing a clear and accurate revelation of WHO LUCIFER IS. But WE FIND the word "HEYLEL" LUCIFER is found "ONE TIME" in "ALL" the passages in the Word. "ONE TIME" with no other clear passages to confirm the concept of LUCIFER AS BEING SATAN. Never does Jesus teach that LUCIFER is speaking of Satan. Never do the Prophets of Old
mention Satan as associated with LUCIFER. Neither does John the revelatory on Patmos ever associate Satan as LUCIFER. This evil, dogmatic teaching of old referring to LUCIFER as SATAN has no scriptural base or foundation in the truth of God's word.
The SINGLE PLACE where LUCIFER is found is in Isaiah 14:12 referring unto the KING OF BABYLON WHO IS "A MAN" and not the evil spirit Satan. LUCIFER is the Latin word which was translated from HEYLEL, which is not a proper noun but is a word that tells us "SOMETHING ABOUT THE SUBJECT SPOKEN OF". The Hebrew does not indicate HEYLEL as a PERSONAL NAME, but as a characteristic of the nature. It is clear that this "HEYLEL-LUCIFER" was in the realm of heavenly light at one time and has fallen into the darkness of the realms of spiritual earthy dust. Who do we know that was created in the LIKNESS OF GOD and was cast down into the realms of dust.
We know for certain that Jesus's account of Satan is "ABOVE" contradiction... Jhn 8:44... Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, and ABODE NOT IN THE TRUTH, because there is NO TRUTH IN HIM. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is A LIAR, and the father of it. Jesus made it unquestionable and accurately true when He reveals Satan as the one... who is A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, FROM THE BEGINNING
ABODE NOT IN THE TRUTH. THERE IS NOR EVER HAS BEEN TRUTH IN HIM, who SPEAKS A LIE, who SPEAKETH OF HIS OWN, who IS A LIAR, and who is THE FATHER OF LIES. Here Jesus is revealing Satan's nature and character--- FROM HIS BEGINNING-- noting his original creation. So in the light of Jesus's own words we
understand "HEYLEL-LUCIFER" is not referring to Satan, because LUCIFER is seen as one that "HAS BEEN" IN THE LIGHT OF GOD-- and has fallen from his LOFTY HEIGHTS. Therefore we have LUCIFER who was a "LIGHT BEARER", "SHINING ONE", "MORNING STAR", "BRIGHT STAR", "SPENDID STAR" that was CUT DOWN to the
ground realm and weakened the nations. SO WHO IS LUCIFER? WHAT IS THE TRUTH CONCERNING "HEYLEL-LUCIFER".
We are all familiar with the wild popular concept that most of the church world has of Lucifer. That he was from the beginning of his creation the most beautiful angel and leader of music in all of God's vast universe. Some believe that he was one of the "three" archangels who ruled over all the hosts of heaven prior to his rebellion against the Throne of God. Thus leading a rebellion against God and influencing "a third" of the angels into joining his endeavor. Until everything came crashing down upon him and a third of the angels of heaven were cast out with him. After our study of THE ARCHANGEL it is clear that JESUS HIMSELF is the ONE and ONLY ARCHANGEL. There is only ONE true and faithful messenger JESUS HIMSELF-- JESUS IS "THE ARCHANGEL- MESSENGER".
We have a revealing truth concerning WAR IN HEAVEN in Revelation 12:7-9.... And there was WAR IN HEAVEN: Michael-JESUS and his angels-HIS REIGNING SONS 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 deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. In this account Satan is referred to as the dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil. This passage reveals Satan, he is the dragon, he is the old serpent, and he is the Devil. Thus it is clear that nowhere in John's witness is the name Lucifer ever used as being Satan.
Isa 14:12... Tells us that LUCIFER was known as the SON OF THE MORNING, that was cut down to the ground, FALLEN FROM HEAVEN, and did weaken the nation. Let's go investigate the original text and find the conformation that reveals WHO LUCIFER REALLY IS.... The scriptural referrence of ADAM is revealing here.
Gen 1:26... And God said, Let us make "MAN" "IN OUR IMAGE", "AFTER OUR LIKNESS": and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Gen 1:27... So God "CREATED MAN-ADAM" "IN HIS OWN IMAGE", in the "IMAGE OF GOD" created he him; male and female created he them. Now we're getting somewhere. ADAM-MAN was created IN THE LIGHT OF WHO GOD IS-- IN THE IMAGE AND
LIKNESS OF GOD. Traditional teaching has tied Luke 10:18... where Jesus said, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven attempting to associate Satan here as referring to Lucifer's fall in Isaiah 14:12. But this is not truth as we know from Jesus's account of Satan that he abode not in the truth also declaring he was a murderer and liar from the beginning of his creation. The only scripture relating Satan and light is found in 2 Co 11:14... KJV... And no marvel; for Satan
himself is transformed into an angel of light. I like the RSV here... 2Co 11:14... And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Thus Satan disguises himself as he masquerades around deceiving people into believing he is the light of the world. But Satan is a liar and a deceiver therefore he has never been in the light-truth. This is as close as he has ever been to being light -- as a masquerading deceiver. Surely the teaching that Lucifer is Satan is not the truth revealed in the Word of God.
This Word will be continued in Part 2. I believe it is clear that in our study we will discover that Lucifer is none other than the First Adam himself. We will pick up this thought in Part 2.
