First answer: In the beginning, Satan (called Lucifer) was God's most trusted angel, but he eventually rebelled against the Lord and thought that he could be a better king. … An Islamic answer No Satan is the Djinn . Before the birth of Adam and eve, God created Angels and Djinns, Angels from Bright Light and Djinns from Smokeless Fire. Then God sent djinns to the earth and Angels to the Heaven , Because Djinns were made of fire that's why were lack of IQ level and they start Disobeying God's Orders, But some of them were quite intelligent , Satan (IZAZIL the old name of Satan) was one of them , IZAZIL requested God to punish Idol ones , God Sent his army and Satan Lead that army and killed all the bad one , then Angels in Heaven requested God to Promote Satan to the 7th Sky in heaven coz of his Kindness and His love of God . God accepted Angels request and Promoted Satan to the 7th sky, There Satan (IZAZIL) start preaching Angels that how to obey God. But When God made first Man and woman, God ordered all angels and Satan to bow in front of Adam and Eve, everyone did except IZAZIL, from then GOD changed his name to Satan and kicked him out of Heaven. Another Answer God created Satan like he has created everything else. Satan was one of God's greatest angels. When God told his angels that he was going to make a new race called 'Humans.' Some angels rebelled against him, but none were as determined to stop the human race as much as Satan so he then created his own land filled with fire and in the center which would be Satan's home which was pure freezing ice. He did this in 6 days which God made Earth in 7 days. That is why the number 6 or 666 is known as the cursed number. Yet Satan did not make 'Hell' by himself he made it with the help of angels that disliked God's ideas of Humans. When God found the horrible burning land he immediately took Satan and the rest of the angels out of his kingdom of Heaven. When Satan made the forbidden fruit an apple he gave it to his men and they took one bite and turned into demons. Their beautiful wings turned into bat-like wings with horns on each end their skin turned to a darkened color but was not described well. They lost their hair and had horns on their head. When Satan took a bite he turned almost the same he still had his beautiful golden hair with horns and with evil wings but with the same skin color. So he was an angel and still is since created by God. But he classifies himself as The Devil. It's said whoever has left their life in an evil path will end up seeing him when they die. Many religions such as Christianity say that Satan is pure evil. Yet that's not true if they say everything god makes has good in them. Then there must be some good inside of Satan....The Fallen Angel. Another Answer Satan was an angel, he was called Lucifer, and he was a very important angel he tried to be better than God, kind of like take his place so he and his followers were for lack of a better term "kicked out" of heaven. Isa 14:12-15, Eze 28:12-15. COG7 answer For most Jewish and Judeo-Christians (COG7) these are the beliefs according to Satan. Satan was never an angel of G-d. Why? 1.Nothing impure, dirty, unclean, sinful or corrupt can come into G-d's presence-The consequence of disobeying this, is death. If Satan was ever an angel, the instant he thought of anger and jealously, G-d would exterminate him right away. 2. Angels were created only to serve G-d, listen to G-d, and to serve humanity. (Col 1:16-17)(Heb 1:14) 3. The Bible never describes Satan as an angel of G-d. 4. The verses in Ezekiel 28:12-19 is a prophecy given to the King Tyre and never describes the fall of Satan. Read the context to understand! 5. The verses in Isaiah 14:12-14 is a prophecy to the king of Babylon and doesn't describe the fall of Satan. Read the context to understand! 6. The Bible verse in Luke 10:18 never describes the fall of Satan. Read the context to understand! Another Answer 1. Satan could have never been an Angel. God made the Angel's to praise him, if Satan was an Angel then God is not perfect and God is perfect. God is perfect and God created Satan for a purpose. Who are we to question him, he knows all. 2. No where in the bible does it say that Satan was ever an Angel. Nowhere. Lucifer is not Satan, Lucifer is only mentioned one time in the bible (Isaiah 14:12) and for the record, if you read chapter 14 you will understand that Isaiah is referring to the Babylonian king. (Lucifer means day star or morning star) In Roman astronomy, Lucifer was the name given to the morning star (the star we now know by another Roman name, Venus). The morning star appears in the heavens just before dawn, heralding the rising sun. The name derives from the Latin term lucem ferre, bringer, or bearer, of light." In the Hebrew text the expression used to describe the Babylonian king before his death is Helal, son of Shahar, which can best be translated as "Day star, son of the Dawn." The name evokes the golden glitter of a proud king's dress and court (much as his personal splendor earned for King Louis XIV of France the appellation, "The Sun King"). 3. Finally, just ask yourself this question, if Satan was ever an Angel, then who tempted Satan? Satan has been Satan from Genesis, Satan used the serpent as a tool to tempt Eve. (Gen 3:1) If you read the Bible you will never find that Satan was ever an Angel. I challenge you to find that scripture. Another Answer "Satan" means "opposer", and was usually a title for anyone who didn't agree with Yahweh's supposed ways. All according to the "divine" plan: Isaiah 45:7 "I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things". Joshua 23:15 "Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things". Judges 9:23 "Then God sent an evil spirit". 1 Kings 9:9 "therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil". Jewish_Answer">A Jewish Answer No, he isn't. Satan in Hebrew is HaSatan (literally The Enemy). The belief that Satan was an Angel comes from Christian-Pagan doctrines. In Judaism this is not the case. Judaism never holds such beliefs. G-d is The One Who created light and darkness, and created good and evil (Isaiah 45:7) Another Answer Indeed verses about kings of the Middle East referring to light and jewels etc are being falsely abused and misused to fit charismatic and medieval superstition. When Jesus refers to Satan as "falling from heaven like lightning" it refers to Satan losing his role as the "prosecutor" of "souls arriving" before God as Judge after their deaths. Btw, Satan means "adversary" (enemy), or, more specifically, "prosecutor" as we find him in Job. This is the role he loses because Jesus already took the punishment of the accused (us) on himself when he was "punished on the cross" unto death. The fine has been paid, the accused may go free - the prosecutor has no role before God anymore!
the question itself is highly erratic. Devil is never called the Angel of light. In king James version, it is given in 2Corinthans 11:14 as:- "And no marvel; for… Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." To make you understand what does this mean let me tell you the same verse in contemporary English version: 2Corinthans 11:14:- "And it is no wonder. Even Satan tries to make himself look like an angel of light." Satan is never or is called Angel of light. The angel of light is the Holy Spirit. Satan could even Impersonate and pretend like Holy spirit.Satan himself (transformed) puts on the fairest appearances or Simply he will disguise as Angel of light. and rest what happens we all know.. He inspires false pastors, Leads a false church, promotes false doctrine etc.. etc.. I agree completely with the answer already posted, but I think it requires a little more of explanation. I think is useful , in order to understand the actual meaning of the 2 Corinthian 11.14 , that it appears with an indeterminate article An , instead with a determinate The, what grammatically clearly denote that there is no One only Angel of Light, but there can be many. Angel is a term that in the biblical language means messenger, and there are many mentioned in the scriptures, and since Christ is called in the Preamble of the Gospel of St John as the Light of the world, all his angels essentially are Angels of Light. I agree that the meaning refers just to the ability of Satan to impersonate whoever he wants, even to an actual angel of light, so it is just a warning to be cautious to accept any messenger that seems to come from God or any messenger that claims to talk in his behalf. Now, from the point of view of Logic, it is also important to note that the fact that Satan can impersonate an Angel of Light does not means that necessarily any Angel of Light is Satan, the implication goes in only one way, it might have an additional if and only if to be a double implication as to have the meaning that the fundamentalists that use this quote pretend to give to it. The name Lucifer, that some extremist sectarians liberally translates as Angel of Light, does not mean absolutely that, its literal and only valid translation is Morning Star. Traditionally in the Bible St Uriel is called the Archangel of Light, so it is clear that if Satan can be using such a title that would clearly puts him under his jurisdiction, all the angels are under the authority of their respective archangel, otherwise this might be a no sense in the celestial army , so this should be a contradiction, therefore, Satan is not actually an Angel of Light.
He was never an angel.
He is diguised as the person that stands at the alter, preaching to you about how you should live your life while taking all of your money in the name of God. That's the real …Satan.
Halo or Aura
depending on how much good they did there beauty rose , Michael was supposed to be extremely beautiful Satan was an arch angel so he must have been very pretty but once he tur…ned he became hideous
Michael the Archangel. You mean "What angel will fight against Satan." Revelation 12 happens in the future.
In the Bible It says And no Marvel for even Satan himself will turn into an Angel of Light What does that mean?
This means that Satan makes wrong things appear harmless, or even desirable. He did this when he deceived Eve. So this scripture is saying that Satan is a master of disguise.
Satan was jinn in quran he was obedient jin who parse GOD but when GOD asked him to bow towards mankind he refuses from then to onward he is no more obedient to GOD and work i…n detracking mankind Toward GOD good deeds and in hell he be on fire for sure
Satan was a jinn he was never an angel. But he got to be in heaven with the angels because he was very loyal to God.
It was either Michael the Archangel or God himself. The story is in Isaiah.
Yes he can. But he is not an angel. He is a jinn. He can appear as an angel.
In Jesus Christ
Now THAT"S an interesting conspiracy theory. ___________________________________________________________ From Muslims point of view; Jesus is not Satan. Jesus is one of five g…reat prophets sent by God to call their people to worship God as the one and only one God with no partner, no companion, no son, no associate, and no equivalence. The five great prophets are: Noah (Nuh), Abraham (Ibrahim), Moses (Mousa), Jesus (Issa), and Muhammed; Peace be upon them. Refer to question below.
Satan has no angels. Angels were made of light and can never disobey God. Satan was a jinn and evil jinn are Satans devils, no one knows how many there are.
St. Thomas Aquinas, theorized that Satan is a fallen Cherub and that Satan disguised himself as a cherub to trick the Angel Uriel. Uriel is a good Angel and guardian whose res…ponsibilities include guarding the planet earth.. St. Thomas says [ST 126.96.36.199r], "Cherubim is interpreted 'fullness of knowledge,' while 'Seraphim' means 'those who are on fire,' or 'who set on fire.' Consequently Cherubim is derived from knowledge; which is compatible with mortal sin; but Seraphim is derived from the heat of charity, which is incompatible with mortal sin. Therefore the first angel who sinned is called, not a Seraph, but a Cherub.
Angels have no free-will, they happily serve God. Satan was a jinn, and yes jinn have free-will like us humans.
