[/quote] i'm jumping in here late, but it seems that Lucifer rebelled for a few reasons. the first one was that he felt his position was threatened. when he realized that God was planning to create mankind (who would rank above the angels and be in God's own image) Lucifer decided to attempt to maintain his own position in the infinite realms. He attempted to rise above God and forge his own way. Lucifer was not alone in this. He took 1/3 of the angels with him and launched a war campaign. Here's the problem: God knows what is best for everyone and everything involved. There is always good reason and divine providence for all of His decisions and order. Why didn't God just destroy Lucifer and the angels that sided with him? God will not go back on His creation. Lucifer tried to overthrow God's Heaven and was defeated. He was sent to Earth, the place that he once desired but now hates. He was banished here. And now, in his fury, is set to destroy it. Interesting note: Lucifer is still under God's command to aid mankind to reach their full potential, which is a station higher than his own. That has not changed (the command). He has not been relieved of that duty. God will not go back on His intent. But, Lucifer (who's taken on many names now and none of them good) hates what he is commanded to do and rebels. Another interesting note: Satan attempts to get mankind to think exactly like him - to rebel against God, believe yourself to not need God and to be above God. but, the important thing to realize is that Satan knows the consequences of that thinking and how it leads to destruction. He is already condemned and wants to take all of mankind with him. He doesn't maintain that deception because he thinks he has something to build upon or that this campaign will produce fruit. He already knows it means annihilation, which is the quickest way to accomplish his task - the annihilation of mankind. [/quote] another thing about Lucifer's station - he lost his rank and station with the fall, but this in no way means his is not allowed in Heaven. The only thing lost was his position. [i]Zechariah 3:1-2 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. 2 And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire? Job 1:6-12 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. 7 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. 8 And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9 Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. 12 And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.[/i] [/quote]
