The Katabolé – Satan’s war with God


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 Kataboléκαταβολή (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.

The Overthrow

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.

  • Corruption of Eve – Gensis 3
  • Nephilim (Fallen Angels) Seedline corruption – Genesis 6
  • Abraham’s wife taken by Pharaoh – Genesis 12
  • Israel in Egypt – All babies killed (Moses spared) – Exodus 1
  • Herod – All babies killed (Jesus) – Matthew 2
  • False Christian teaching (Modern Times) – Matthew 24
  • Antichrist – Revelation, Daniel


  1. Most Christian Church denominations today get their accepted ideas from some board of men that determines what the public really should know. This causes any new Christians that are willing to read the Word Of God to become quickly confused and frustrated. It also causes a non Christians to think the whole concept is false. How can the Earth have only been here for 6000 years when there is clearly scientific proof with archaeological evidence that does not match this idea? Many Christian Churches argue that Satan is really just a concept and really never existed.

      Many Churches today are not teaching God’s word Chapter by chapter verse by Verse. There are many mislead people because of false teachings and they will be held accounble for their false teachings..

  3. This information was banned by the Roman Catholic Church. Many of the early writing along with the books of the apocrypha talk about the fall of Lucifer. You don’t hear anything about this today because Christians are so uneducated in scripture and history. The reformation took care of burning much of this material plus anyone who had knowledge of it.

    • Kim, perhaps I’m wrong, but I don’t ever remember reading of the Reformation fathers or their followers burning texts, while I have read much regarding the Roman Catholic Church, after it received its excepted canon, as persecuting and killing anyone holding texts considered “heretical”, which, of course, were seized or burned. I understand the Vatican library is full of such texts, but none of that will see the light of day, lest it should fit the purposes of the Vatican.

  4. The time difference between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 is billions of years.  Many grab on to this 6 day creation and run with it.  They don’t understand that Adam was an eigth day creation and the rest of the races were created on the 6th day.  They don’t understand that Noah took 2 of every living thing, including the 6th day races.  They have no concept of a katabol (overthrow).  People assume and believe what they want because they are simply too lazy to investigate things themselves.  It is easier to just say that the Bible is full fo contirdictions than it is too look it up for themselves.

    • Gen 7:2  Of every CLEAN beast thou shalt take to thee by SEVENS, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
      Gen 7:3  Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

      • I’m not sure because it says clean BEASTS.  I don’t think it refers to man.  The Jews were not allowed to eat any unclean beasts just the clean.  Example Pork is unclean.  I think the scavenger animals were considered unclean.  That was my understanding anyway.

    • Gene this is wonderful study and research on your part and I just want to say thanks for sharing. Please share more on the time frames in which you have been able to understand. Please. This is truly unbelievable but yet it makes perfect sense as to how science clearly dates the age of the Earth, which your are right on this, it does not match in age!  When you talk about Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 and the time between that, can you give some tips on what to look for on how to determine that?  Also, if people know anything about Botany, they can also figure out that millions of year old trees and plants don’t match with the six thousand year old Earth. It certainly answers questions for me. This is an awesome website and I and others I’m sure would love to know more on those time periods. Can you share some clues of what we can look for in our research on how to determine time periods? Thanks for a great post and share.

    thank God for truth.Tell it like it is

  7. GOD is great !

  8. Finally!!!! An article that can explain who we are, where we came from, and what happened before this earth age!! And do not forget… THE SIN IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN WAS SEX!! EVE AND SATAN AND ADAM…. CAIN IS THE OFFSPRING OF SATAN!!

    • Yes! It is great to see this truth in answer to the age old questions of  “Where did we come from?” the truth is that God knew us before the foundation of the earth was created, and He sent us here to seek and find Him again.  It is a captivating story and makes total sense.  I agree that Eve had sex with Satan, and then her offspring were Satan’s seed. God says to Eve, “your seed will be against his seed and his (Satan’s) seed will be against your seed!” Sean if you have a Facebook page please message me… 🙂

    I knew of the katbole, but the more I learn the more confused I get

    • Hi Willard
      I sure hope there is more information to come available on this too. This is all news to me. I never believed and could put to logic the time frames in the Bible with what Science has proven regarding the age of the Earth compared to fossils, plants and other things which don’t match. Don’t give up if  you are confused because I am like many who is looking for answers too and more explanations, so asking questions is the best way to hear what others have experienced or have researched and found out. I hope this site becomes more active in the  comments sections because I’ve been noticing how long ago some people have posted on here. 
      Maybe we can get with the website editor/ owner and submit some ideas to bring some more traffic to the website. What do you think, hopefully they are watching the comments section too so they can ask us if we have some ideas to help get more people to this website…This is really good stuff and important and something the World can talk about and share ideas about. Everyone deserves answers and the right to know more of our existence and how it began and will end and of course that big word, WHY? Why are we here and purpose of all?
      Well at least we know there are others confused too and looking for more answers. 

    • If you study with Shepherds Chapel then you will understand. The first age was completely destroyed by a flood, and is not Noah’s flood. We are the Angels of the first age. Where the bible reads you must be born again it should read you must be born from above. Gen 6 talks about the Angels that refused to be born from above, and instead looked down upon the fair women and took whomever they chose. These were the giants of the Bible. There are a total of 7,000 who refused to be born of woman. All Angels were to be born of woman and to go through this age to show our selves approved. Even God himself came through this age through Jesus Christ. There are those that are predestinated or chosen as Saul or Paul was chosen. In these last days there are 144,000 who are the Elect, and out of these 7,000 are the very Elect. And all of this you can learn from a small church that teaches through the internet to all the world. You will also learn that we Caucasians are the ten lost tribes that settled around the Caucus mountains when released from slavery, and eventually became a great nation just as God has told Abraham. God said your nation will bless all nations. God Bless.

      • This is all the truth that I have learn to read the Bible and to learn to go onto deep study with Pastor Arnold Murray who totally teaching the truth of God’s word. He help me learn the truth of what God is teaching us the truth of his word. He teaches God’s will not man’s word. He also teaching their is no rapture man made up. God revealed the truth of his word by helping me find Shepherd’sChapel to me.

  10. Warren Lonabaugh says:

    I wish that this article had further explained that because of Satan’s revolt that all souls must be born of water and come from the flesh.  The  test in this fleshly life is whether we follow God or Satan. The rapture theory is probably the biggest weapon that Satan uses to confuse people.  They think that the church will fly away and they will be saved from the Antichrist.  Little do they understand that it’s Satan that is taking them. God forbids anyone to teach His children to fly to save their souls.  Remember Satan is the author of confusion.

    • Warren, I see you posted some time ago, but if you read this. I was just wondering what your beliefs are on the Rapture. Do you believe it is different than what they call the Resurrection or Returning of Christ or have you found more information on a different kind of Rapture which will happen in the same time frame as the Resurrection or the Returning of Christ?
      I’ve had a vision many years ago of what I believe may have been the Rapture or Resurrection.
      It was not a scary sight, but one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in my life. Maybe it was something my subconscious conjured up due to me wondering about it, but I sure don’t understand how in the world my subconscious could come up with something as unexpectedly and heavenly beautiful as what I seen. 
      I do not understand exactly everything in the vision or dream or whatever it is you want to call it, but I do know it was like I was absent from the Earth altogether and seeing this from a distance as though I was floating and able to float around from one scene of the vision to another. I remember every single aspect of the vision and how beautiful it was. 
      I do know it was some kind of gathering which had been chosen from God ascending from Earth, people from all walks of life, being gathered by beautiful Angels, coming and going, down and back up to and through the most beautiful Arch in the Sky I’ve ever seen. 
      So hopefully, I will get full understanding of that some day but love to hear other stories and opinions of the subject because I’m totally open minded in every way and I don’t have just one set belief, but open to learning and understanding all ideas in all areas of beliefs.
      Thanks for sharing this, it’s a really interesting comment, please share more of your understanding and what you know and believe.

  11. Billy Davis says:

    Was wondering what part of Genesis 1:5 it is that you gap theories can’t understand.
    5 And Yahweh called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and then the morning were the First Day.

    Now that God that you serve might now be able to count to 7 but Great Father Yahweh does.
    Here is another little tid bit of info for those who don’t Moses’s account there in Genesis 1
    this is found in Luke 24: 25 Then He said to them: O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!

    I just came across this site as I was looking for anything I could find regarding the katabo . I must commend the writer of this true and accurate  posting, it was wonderful reading it and all the comments. It’s truly a blessing knowing that there are others such as I who have had their eyes and ears opened to the hidden secrets of the Living Word of or father.
