Who God intended the devil to be

4 12 2012

fallen angelWe are in a series called Who is the devil really? He is a world influencer and we have seen his true goal. Today we put a comma in our series as we look at who God intended the devil to be.

The glory of the Lord must have made the devil so amazingly beautiful as he served day and night in the throne room of God, interacting with the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit face to face. He was the angel above all angels and had such power and authority as he did the bidding of the God. Yet it wasn’t enough for this highest of all angels.

Angels must have emotions because the devil was unsatisfied with serving in the throne room of the triune God. Yet because God loves all of creation, when the devil chose to leave the throne room and God’s will for his life, God released him to wonder the earth and spend eternity in hell forever separated from God.

Because of the first two chapters of Job we know though the devil no longer serves in the throne room, he stilljob and his wife interacts and petitions God. He is still serving God but does it kicking and screaming rather than with the glory he was designed to carry. I wonder if he ever regrets his choices, yet still today his pride and lust for power must keep his eyes focused souly upon himself.

I can imagine the devil saying to himself as he remembering those day of splendor  in the throne room, I am better off, I am greater than God, look those humans are paying more attention to me and to the calamity than to the God who created them.

I hope this look at who the Lord created the devil to be will help you to keep your eyes focused on the author and perfector of your faith rather than the lost luster of a fallen angel.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie

Thank you for reminding us that the devil is real and what his purpose is, to remove our eyes from the One we should worship and follow. I think we often times forget this.
