We come to the last part of this series. Let’s jump right in and go to the book of Matthew. This is when the devil is trying to tempt Jesus.
Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdom’s of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him. Mt. 4:8-11
The reason Lucifer fell was because of his pride and wanting to be like God. He wanted to be worshipped.
Now I want to show you another fall that took place. The fall of man.
Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said , “to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘ You must not eat from any tree in the garden’? The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.'” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Gen. 3:1-5
The reason Lucifer fell was because of pride, but the reason man fell was lack of trust.
Adam and Eve should have trusted that God knew what was best for them, and this is true in our lives now. We need to trust him fully. If you can take one thing away from this series on the fall of Lucifer let it be this-It won’t be pride that takes you down, it will be not trusting God.
