Do you believe in the devil? Is he a real being, a negative entity, or a figment of the imagination of people who would like to blame anything or anyone for their misfortunes? Do you believe in the paranormal?
Lucifer, or Satan, more commonly known as the devil, is described in the Bible as a fallen angel who became proud enough to challenge God. He caused so much trouble in the Heavenlies that war ensued! Michael the Archangel led the Heavenly Hosts in this battle that ended with Lucifer and one-third of the angels who had joined him being cast out of heaven and bound to the earth.
He has been causing trouble for humans ever since. To be honest, I believe that Satan was already on earth when humans appeared. He was definitely on earth during the period when Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden. Many people think that God and the devil are opposites and equal. This is not true!
God created the devil when He created all the angelic beings! Lucifer was one in a crowd until he decided to take control of the Heavenlies to be worshiped as god. He failed and has been trying to get back at God through the millenia since his fall. Unlike God, Satan is not omniscient (all knowing) and cannot be everywhere at the same time. It is highly unlikely that any of us have ever had direct contact with him.
What do you think about the devil? I would love to hear from you.
