How many angels where in heaven before lucifer was driven away?
"Myriads," which means at least millions or more, but one third of the angels followed Lucifer and became fallen angels or demons or devils. Those that stayed with God are the holy (separated to God) angels, who serve Him without waver.
No, Lucifer was jealous of God because he was always being surrounded and worshipped by the rest of the angels. When God created Lucifer, He gave Lucifer a beautiful singing voice and good looks, so Lucifer wanted the attention that God was getting. Some of the angels started to praise Lucifer when one of the higher rank of angels kicked Lucifer out of heaven and onto Earth.
Lucifer: Angel of Music Lucifer is a fallen angel who was the head of the ministry of music in Heaven when he was in heaven. It has been said of him he was the most beautiful of ALL angels and he was the director of the flow of music there (Praise and Worship). Lucifer was basically a walking talking musical instrument.
God created Angels, and the Angels were flawed like man is today. The Angel known as Lucifer was one the most powerful Angels. Lucifer got jealous of God's power and wanted it for him self. The ensuing war between God and his Angels against Lucifer and the rogue Angels led to Lucifer's defeat and God banished him from heaven but sent him to rule Hell as a compromise for allowing Lucifer to exist. Lucifer to…
Lucifer was the Most beautiful, Powerful, and inteligent Arc-angel of all of Heaven. However he wanted more. He wanted to be God. So he tempted other angels to help him overthrow God so that he might rule. He lead the re-vault to God in an attempt to overthrow him. God, Being all powerful, Bound the angels in chains in heaven and cast Lucifer out (Perhaps to protect anymore angels from temptation)
I have heard about unholy demons and holy angels but is there a situation where the exact oppossite can be true?
In Christianity, demons are by their very nature, evil, whereas angels were created by God to be instruments of His goodness. One must also consider the Biblical description of the war in Heaven lead by Lucifer (the light bearer) and the other disgruntled angels who desired to be equal to God, against Saint Michael the archangel and his 'good angels' who were obedient to God. The result of the war saw Lucifer and his cohorts…
It means the 'illuminated one'. But what it really means is Lucifer. Lucifer, before he fell from heaven was the highest angel, second only to God himself. But he wanted to be God and so fell from grace with his fallen angels. Lucifier means 'The Morning Light'. In fact, the Illuminati worship Lucifer. They are Satanists of the worst kind.
Demons are the utimate in evil. There is only one other that is more evil and he goes by the name Satan. Demons were actually angels in Heaven, as was Lucifer (Satan's Heavenly name). In a dispute over power, Lucifer rebelled against God and He was kicked out. A third of the angels that sided with Lucifer were kicked out also.
Did the fall of Lucifer from Heaven happen before or after the case of Original Sin in the Garden of Eden?
Lucifer was once an archangel of God, and his name meant "beautiful" or "light." He thought he was equal to God, and wanted the same power as God. Because of this, God sent Lucifer along with other angels who supported him away from heaven and straight to hell. The other angels that fell with him became the first demons, and Lucifer became ruler of hell.
Lucifer is one of the many fallen angels. A third of the angels in heaven when Lucifer fell from heaven , fell with him. Some point to Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28 as describing Lucifer's fall becoming Satan via 'iniquity' or great injustice or extreme immoral act (see Isaiah 14:12-15): Ezekiel 28:15New King James Version (NKJV) 15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.
There was a war in Heaven where Satan (whose name in Heaven was Lucifer) revolted against God after God chose his son (Jesus) to become the saviour of mankind. Lucifer didn't think Jesus or God was any more powerful than him or the other angels, so he persuaded some other angels to band with him against God. God foresaw this and sent Michael to chuck them out. Michael succeeded.
Yes, the conflict in heaven was definately real.....it all started when Lucifer(satan now) decided that he was jealous because Jesus was God's son and he wasn't. So he went around trying to convince the other angels that God was not fair(which of course was a straight up lie!) and one third of the billions of angels of heaven agreed with him. when lucifer voiced his complaint to God, God gave him a fair chance to…
before his fall Satan was the number one angel his name was lucifer, he was lesser than God but slightly above the other angels. After his fall Gabriel assumed all the duties that were previously assigned to lucifer, for instance the angel that was sent to talk to Mary and Joseph was Gabriel and even before many bible occasions when an Angel appeared it was mostly Gabriel, i think he is the one
Technicaly God didnt make the devil, God created Lucifer, and Lucifer corrupted himself making himself into a devil. But Lucifer would have been created at the same time as the rest of the angels. I have no idea when the angels were created, Day 2 maybe? Certianly, if we want to be litteral with Genisis 1 and 2, it would have to be before the creation of humanity, other wise we couldent be tricked. On…
No he is not. Satan who's name was Lucifer, was once called the angel of light, was an angel who wanted to be more powerful than God. Lucifer was then cast out of Heaven along with about one-third of the angels in Heaven. The word satan is a Hebrew word that means adversary. Since he was now an adversary of God, the name satan was given to him.
