God created a cherub named Lucifer — PERFECT IN HIS WAYS, but with the POWER OF FREE CHOICE — and LUCIFER TRANSFORMED HIMSELF INTO A DEVIL by his rebellion against God! By his rebellion, Lucifer BECAME Satan. By his OWN CHOICE in OPPOSING God, he made himself God’s adversary. The Katabole (Overthrow) started in motion the Earth Age we are in today.
From the Katabolé – καταβολή (Overthrow) the mechanics of the restoration to grace is not understood by most people. Unknown years ago an event started to form like trickle of water that caused everything you see today to be created. The trickle was evil and pride rising in Lucifer. Understanding the Katabolé is imperative to understanding End Time prophecies. God has a plan to restore. Jesus came to restore. John 1:14 says that Jesus “came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Jesus restored us to God through grace.
Before Satan fell from grace, he was a good, enlightened angel. In fact, he was anointed as a guardian cherub, and he was blameless from the day he was created, until wickedness was found in him (Ezekiel 28:14,15). Then he, and his throne were cast down to the earth; and, ever since, his goal has been to raise his throne above God (Isaiah 14:12,13).
“Lucifer” means “Light-Bringer” or “Day Star.” Ezekiel calls him “the anointed cherub who covers,” which means he was one of the chief angels whose wings covered God’s throne in heaven.
Who are the Morning Stars?
When God created created the Earth, we are told in The Book of Job that the Morning Stars and the Sons of God shouted for joy.
There seems to be two groups, Morning Stars and Sons of God.
Job 38:4 KJV
4Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
5Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
6Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
7When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
This is an area that is not discussed in the Christian World today. Does morning referring to new, a not developed fully yet star. Were these stars the souls that would later be breath into the nostrils of man by God? This is not known. There are many places in scripture that talk about our souls being with God before we are sent to Earth:
John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, [even] the Son of man which is in heaven.
Romans 9:11 (For [the children] being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, [and] I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
In Revelation 12:4 “stars” are symbols of angels. The verse implies that Satan coerced a third of these beings to choose to submit to him and follow him in resisting God. The Devil’s persuasion and the angels’ subsequent choices occurred in the distant past, and those who submitted to him are now fallen angels and demons against whom we wrestle. Our warfare is against Satan, who rose up against God, who looks upon us as invaders.
Revelation 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:
The source for the story of the Katabol (é) is scripture. The Story starts in Ezekiel 28:
12Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
13Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
14Thou 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.
15Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
16By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
17Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
The story continues in Isaiah 14:
12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
God Destroys the Earth Age
You may have been told at some point by some within the ‘religious community’ that this earth is only six-thousand years old because of the fact that it is when God formed Adam in the Garden of Eden (4004 BC).
And then you go to a museum and see entire skeletal remains of dinosaurs that have been Potassium-Argon dated to millions of years old!
The purpose of this article is not to debate but to present the material concerning the Katabol (é). However God in the scripture tells us that he destroys the age of Satan’s overthrow.
2 Peter 3:5 Lets us know about the first and second earth ages:
5For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
Jeremiah 4: 26 describes in details of how the age is destroyed:
24I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
25I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.
26I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.
27For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end.
He did not make a full end. We pick up in Genesis where God is going to renew the earth after it became void and without form from his fierce anger because of the overthrow.
Genesis – The New Beginning
When the Bible was translated in 1611, the meaning and exact details of words did not follow through into the English text. The difference in “Was” and “Had Become” can make a big difference in how the text is interpreted by the reader.
And the earth was without form, and void;
and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
The Hebrew actually read “had become” Strong’s #01961.
“But the earth became (or “had become”) without form, and void”.
“Without form, and void” has been translated from the Hebrew phrase “tohu vav bohu“.
The word “tehown” has been translated as “the deep“, but is in fact the same word (Greek abussos – abyss) used to refer to the home of demons and evil spirits, the place from which the anti-Christ emerges.
There is some hidden detail here if you are willing to dig into the Hebrew.
The Earth had become without form by the LORD, and by his fierce anger. Jeremiah 4:26
The Ongoing War
Ephesians 6:12-17 makes especially clear that we are involved in a war, a spiritual war, and thus our weaponry must also be spiritual.
Ephesians 6:12-17 KJV
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
The battle with God continues from the beginning to this day. Satan has been trying to destroy God’s plan for the restoration of man through grace. All through scripture we see Satan’s hand in attempts to destroy the bloodline of Christ and prevent man from receiving Salvation. However the cross ended it all.
