MEMORY VERSE

(I Peter 5:8):
 
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary, the devil as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."

In our last lesson, we studied about Angels. We said that they were created by GOD, before "Genesis 1:1" - Creation; and that they were created in vast numbers. 

There are some very special angels referred to in Scriptures, indicating that there are different grades and ranks in the Angelic Heavenly Hosts. We read of Michael, the Archangel, whose name occurs three times in the Books of Daniel, Jude and Revelation: then there is Gabriel, meaning "The Mighty One". He is the one who brought the announcement to the Virgin Mary that she was the chosen one to bring the SON of GOD into the world. (Luke 1:26-27) "And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from GOD unto the city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a Virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, to the house of David; and the Virgin's name was Mary." 

There was another angel that was of great importance; this angel's name was Lucifer, "the son of the morning". We read about him in (Isa. 14:12) "How are thou fallen from Heaven, O Lucifer, son of morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!" In (Ezek. 28:12) "...Thus saith the LORD-GOD; thou sealest up the sun, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty."

NOTE: (Ezek. 28:15) "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee!" How did this happen? This mighty, glorious angel, Lucifer, son of the morning became a REBEL; and SIN became a FACT

Read (Isa. 14:12-15) "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. Yet thou shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit."
Read again the above passage and underline the words "I WILL." How many times did Lucifer make this statement?_________ Notice, he states, "I WILL be like the most HIGH!" He wanted to be GOD! This was the origination of sin. He fell by pride. GOD disposed him, and he became SATAN, the prince of power of the air ­ a powerful (next to GOD) wandering spirit, without a fixed habitation. He also led with him, an innumerable number of angels in his rebellion against GOD; these are called "fallen angels". There is much Demon activity in the world today: the devil and his host of fallen angels are responsible for the awful actions of crime, hunger, war, pain, etc. This is the result of Lucifer's and later, man's sin. GOD is now ruling only in the hearts of the believers. To be sure, GOD has a master time-schedule plan for this world; and it is coming to pass. The next great Event is the "SECOND COMING OF CHRIST" for HIS church (the believers). 
 
What is the devil (Satan) doing now? As our Scripture Verse says, "He is going about seeking whom he may devour." He is also, the accuser of the saints before GOD. (Rev. 12:10b) "...for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our GOD day and night."
