To talk about the fall of Lucifer we need to go back in time. Back before the beginning. It was before God created, the human race, that Lucifer fell. Which is the reason we need to go back before the beginning. In Job 38:4-7 it says,
“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? Or what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone-while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?”
Of course Job, whom God was speaking to, wasn’t around then and neither was any human being since we were not created yet. But look at the last line of that scripture and see who was there and witness to God creating the heavens and the earth. It was the morning stars and all the angels! Now another name for angels is morning stars. In fact the name Lucifer means, bright morning star.
Lucifer was one of God’s angels, a created spiritual being. We know that everything God creates is good. So what happened to Lucifer? How did he turn from Lucifer to satan? Let’s read Ezekiel 28:14-15, but notice yet another name or title for angles, guardian cherub.
“You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.”
So here we find out wickedness was found in Lucifer. To understand more we must look at another passage in the book of Isaiah 14:12-15.
How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit.
