The LORD’s prayer has bespooked me! “Here on Earth as it is in Heaven!” Jesus of God taught that. The meaning SO very deep!
Wow! Why was Lucifer demoted by God? He did in Heaven what was not in God Will. Love cast Him out of Heaven, but because Love IS Love. Love did not “uncreate” Him! Amazingly, there is NO space or ‘time’ in Heaven.
When St John is given the vision of Satan (the dragon) being bound for a thousand years we may ask “Why didn’t God bind him when he disobeyed?”
It almost is too simple to answer that!
Love in 1 Corinthians 13 says it ALL!
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Also; something we miss is the position of Lucifer before the fall. We may have missed that he was created in perfection in spirit and essence.
He looked for assistance against God as he sought to Challenge The Throne!
God knows ALL!
I was moved to know that Lucifer was given chance to step down; but this did not happen.
A few things:
Lucifer was head of the Heavenly choir.
Lucifer walked among the blazing stones.
The superangelic (supreme among the angels)
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Wisest of the angels.
Isaiah 11:2–3 (NASB).
Before The Throne there are essences! Including the Spirit of the Lord, and the Spirits of wisdom, of understanding, of counsel, of might, of knowledge and of fear of the LORD, here are represented the seven Spirits, which are before The Thorne of God.
There is so very much to share on this. But to cut it short. he was superior of the superior. Yes, God in His Everlasting Essence was present, and we have been given a clue.
Heaven is a blueprint of the Earth!
As is in Heaven; so it is on the Earth!
We are made aware of ‘horses’ and essences in Heaven. Heaven served as the blueprint
In Revelation 4:6–8, four living beings (Greek: τέσσαρα ζῷα, tessera zō[i]a) are seen in John’s vision. These appear as a lion, an ox, a man, and an eagle, much as in Ezekiel but in a different order. They have six wings, whereas Ezekiel’s four living creatures are described as only having four.
