God has spoken to us. He has said,

Malachi 3:6 KJV
[6] For I am the Lord , I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.


Hebrews 13:8 KJV
[8] Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.


Isaiah 1:18 KJV
[18] Come now, and let us reason together, saith The Lord.

God is not machine-like. He calls us to reason WITH him. He desires co-creators to participate in the unfolding of his infinitely glorious projects. God does not program his creation, in the manner of puppets.

A machine — an artificially intelligent machine, especially — is an autonomous and self-contained unit that is hell-bent on achieving a limited list of tasks. A machine will devour whatever resources are needed, without consideration of the consequences to others or to the surrounding environment and context.


God operates legally, according to his system of optimal justice and certitude.

Lucifer was, by covenant, offered the highest position of co-creation with Jesus.

We can infer that Lucifer was offered a covenant which mandated co-creation of total perfection. Lucifer was told that he would be given co-creational status at near to the very fundament of creation, such that he would have a profound responsibility to all of creation, to maintain absolute symmetry, to the glory of God.

Similarly, we are each offered, as Sons of God, bearing within us the Holy Spirit of God, the most coveted position of co-creation with Jesus, of the Triune God.

Matthew 5:48 KJV
[48] Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Jesus the Lord’s Christ, as God, retained ultimate power and authority over his creation, to a degree infinitely beyond that of Lucifer’s, of course.

Lucifer, a being of great intellect far beyond our own fallen nature intellect, had knowledge of Good and Evil. This was necessary, for him to be able to participate in the fundamentals of God’s creation.

At some point, Lucifer was tempted by the possibilities of evil, and he began to experiment with iniquity. We ask, “Why? If Lucifer was so high up in the hierarchy of creation, even to be granted a covenant for fundamental participation in creation, and if he were of such perfect and pure substance as to be able to stand in the Throne Room of heaven, why would he consider for a moment to depart from giving all glory to God?”

We have only to look at ourselves for an answer to this question. We, as a race, fell from grace by rejecting the Word of God, when we were given everything we could possibly want. We were then, and are daily now, given over to the sin that comes of yielding to temptation.

We are impressed with the intellects and powers of the dark forces of satan and his followers. God has spoken against this:

Isaiah 55:8-11 KJV
[8] For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord . [9] For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

We think that this applies only to US — but that is an error. This statement applies to ALL OF CREATION, and that INCLUDES satan and all of his followers.

Satan, with all of his “great” intellect, and his “great” effective powers upon creation, and his “great” knowledge of technology and occult alleyways, is as necessarily humbled in comparison to God the Almighty, as we are. Satan’s views are, in comparison to those of God, just as small as ours. Satan’s foibles and myopia, and exceeding sinfulness, are equally as real as ours. WE ARE CREATED BEINGS. God is the Creator. We cannot fathom the heights of God’s ways. Nor can satan.

Satan may impress some of US with his pernicious inroads into the flesh, and his timeless plotting, but ultimately he is of no higher ability or station than anyone else.

Luke 7:28 KJV
[28] He that is least in the kingdom of God is greater.

Satan desires not to be the least, but the greatest.

2 Thessalonians 2:4 KJV
[4] Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

We know where this leads.

Proverbs 16:18 KJV
[18] Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

Satan embarked upon a path of experimentation. He discovered first Darkness, then Imbalance, then Chaos, then the Primacy of the Will of the Self, then Rebellion. He was given to Pride over his new body of “knowledge”, and he saw in this knowledge, because of his pride, a motivation to usurp the power to create. He formulated such things as Destruction, Murder, Lies. Pride gave over to Lust.

Knowing God, we know that God is forgiving and has all long-suffering patience. It is conceivable that Lucifer “stumbled” more than once, and was reproved, and was chastised, and was perhaps even punished, for his experimental diversions from the purity of the creation of God.

We do not know the consequences of Lucifer’s early sins against God. There may have been entire civilizations, or entire sets of creation, contaminated and necessarily destroyed, because of his growing taste for law-breaking.

We do not know at what point Lucifer entered into permanent rebellion, but it is certain that he did exactly that. We can infer that it had something to do with a third of the Angels being sufficiently impressed with the results of his experimentation, that they themselves would turn against God, desiring a new order.

We can infer this because we have seen it happen here, in a slightly different way.

Whereas Lucifer was of sufficient influence to convince a third of the angels (a categorical minority) to rebel, the whole of our world lies in the evil one, to the extent that only a remnant must be saved, with the rest given over to their own rejection of communication with God.

1 John 5:19 KJV
[19] The whole world lieth in wickedness.

Jeremiah 18:12 KJV
[12] And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

We ask, why were only a third of the angels convinced by satan and his devices, while in this place the vast majority are given over to wickedness and self-centeredness?

We have to understand that Lucifer and the angelic beings were created by God, as a matter of pure creation from God’s presence, according to the pure will of God. Contamination against that would be decidedly in the minority.

Our race was very deliberately created later in the process of God’s response to the rebellions of satan, and God used satan’s own covenanted ability to influence this manner of creation as a “hook in the nose” to lure satan to what would be his effectual demise.

In other words, God created us as a snare to satan. God created us as a kind of the sort of creation that God had covenanted with Lucifer to do — only this time, God did something that he had never done before: He breathed his living spirit into us, creating souls.

Genesis 2:7 KJV
[7] And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Satan, knowing that this manner of creation was intermixed with his own covenant with God, immediately worked to turn it against God. After all, his rebellion against God amongst the angelic beings had failed, and now he had the opportunity to turn against God a new sort of being, infused with the very Spirit of God.

The creation of beings with souls was the fishhook that God designed, legally and with respect to all covenants, to draw satan into fatal error.

Satan took the bait, and lured Eve into sin, not seeing God’s legal right, with respect to his prior covenant with satan, to raise a final standard against satan’s rebellion.

God had a new sort of covenant with his new creation: salvation unto redemption, and the permanent enclosure of satan, along with all those who choose him.

Genesis 3:15 KJV
[15] And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

A bruise to the heel is an injury, even if you lose a leg.

A crush to the head is a killing blow.

Once satan realized that he had been drawn into fatal error, he knew the game was over. He would no longer be able to influence any manner of creation.

And it is over.

Revelation 12:12 KJV
[12] Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Revelation 22:20 KJV
[20] Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
