1. Angels

Spiritual creatures created one by one by God which means that they don’t procreate
Mark 12:25: For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven
Psalm 91:11-12: For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Heb 1:14: Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

Isa 6:1-3: In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

Dan 10:4-13: I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz. His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color, and the sound of his words like the voice of a multitude.

Luke 1:26-33: Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth….

2. All angels were created without evil

God never created the evil, but he gave free will to his creatures; the angels were created perfect but free to decide to serve God or not.

Gen 1:1-2: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Job 38:4-7: Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determine iys measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

1 John 1:5: God is light and in him is no darkness at all

3. The origin of evil

It started in the heart of one of the most perfect cherubim, today called Lucifer

Eze 28:11-19 – “You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God…You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. 15You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. 16By the abundance of your trading you became filled with violence within and you sinned; therefore I cast you as a profane thing out of the mountain of God…”

Isa 14:12-15 – “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! 13For you have said in your heart: “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north;14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.15Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.”

Rev 12:7-12 – “And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.10Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”

Interpretation of Isa 14:12 using other verses:

Psalm 48:2: Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

Job 37:22: He comes from the north as golden splendor; with God is awesome majesty

1 Pet 1:17: And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work…

1 Kings 8:10-11: And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the Holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord

2 Thess 2:3-12: Let no one deceive you by any means; for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

John 14:30: I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in me.

4. The race of Lucifer

He was created perfect by God, was anointed as cherub to guard God’s holiness, became jealous and have sinned in his heart; with an evil plan in mind, conquered one third of the angelical creation which became his army, establish his army in the heavens below the heaven of heavens; during the tribulation period, will be expulsed from heaven to earth, after tribulation will go to the pit for 1,000 years, another release just to fulfill the prophecy and he will be sent to the Lake of Fire, the Hell forever.

  1. From heaven of heavens to heavens - ISA 14:12 (in the beginning)
  2. From heavens to earth - Rev 12:7~9 (during Tribulation)
  3. From earth to pit - Rev 20:2~3 (at the end of tribulation)
  4. From pit to the Lake of Fire (HELL) - Rev 20:10 (at the end of Christ visible kingdom on earth for 1,000 years)

Rev 20:7-10 – “Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10The devil, who deceived them (who accused them), was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Heb 2:16: For indeed he does not give aid to angels, but he does give aid to the seed of Abraham.
