13) Son of the Morning

The Enuma Elish explicitly describes a state of conflict in Creation, focusing its attention on one son right from the start.

And Anu begot Nudimmud in his likeness.

He, Nudimmud, was superior to his forefathers

He had no rival among the gods his peers.

Nudimmud is more commonly known in succeeding Mesopotamian languages as Ea or Enki.

The god Ea (whose Sumerian equivalent was Enki) is one of the three most powerful gods in the Mesopotamian pantheon, along with Anu and Enlil [Adam]. Sumerian texts about Enki often include overtly sexual portrayals of his virile masculinity [probably referencing his role as progenitor]…Ea has associations with wisdom, magic and incantations [calling into existence]…he is the ultimate source of all ritual knowledge used by exorcists to avert and expel evil [if he has authority over evil we must deduce that he called it into being]. Ea was patron of the arts and crafts, and all other achievements of civilization.  

Enki…Nudimmud, the mighty one…the strong one of the Anunna[ki]…[angels, gods], Enki, lord of the hegal [demigods, hybrid angel-human giants], lord of wisdom, lord, beloved of An, ornament of Eridu [possibly the oldest city in the world, founded by Cain], who directs commands and decisions, expert at fate-decreeing…You bring down the stars of heaven...Enki, king of the Abzu, celebrates his own magnificence – as is his right.”

His Sumerian name may be unfamiliar, but this individual is recognizable by his attributes of the lead angel commonly known in Western culture through the Bible as Lucifer.

“Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so…Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, [drum roll] till iniquity was found in thee.” (Ezekiel 28:14-15)

O Lucifer / Bringer of light, son of the morning” (Isaiah 14:12)

“Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou 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…thou wast upon the holy mountain of God.” (Ezekiel 28:12-14)

Compare Lucifer’s description with fabulously wealthy Eastern potentates, God himself, his human high priest / vicar / vicarious stand-in, and his Eastern potentate bride.

“…behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.” (Revelation 4:2-3)

“as the LORD commanded Moses…he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen. It was foursquareAnd they set in it four rows of stones: the first row was a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this was the first row. And the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond. And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst. And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper: they were inclosed in ouches of gold in their inclosings.(Exodus 39:7-14)

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband…the bride, the Lamb’s wife…Having the glory of God…garnished with all manner of precious stones…jasper, sapphire, chalcedony, emerald, sardonyx, sardius, chrysolyte, beryl, topaz, chrysoprasus, jacinth, amethyst, pearls.” (Revelation 21:2-24)

Lucifer was flying high. He was as close to the image of God as any created being could be.

Then he heard about God’s plan to create a race of adams, sons of God made with bodies of clay, i.e. “mud people“, in order to create a family and heirs, giving humans dominion and power and glory while keeping the likes of him mere servants.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath 

  • blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
  • According as he hath chosen us [not angels] in him before the foundation of the world,
  • that WE [not angels] should be holy and without blame before him IN LOVE [not intrinsic worth]:
  • Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
  • In whom we [not angels] have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace
  • In whom also we have obtained an inheritance [birthright], being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:” (Ephesians 1:3-11)

Adam is the first son chosen and elevated by God to the status of heir to his holdings, both in abstract authority and concrete  possessions.

  • “For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee?
  • And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?  
  • And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world [both the first sinless human Adam, then the last sinless human Adam], he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.  
  • And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever…” (Hebrews 1:5-8)

Lucifer’s relationship with Adam is laid out for us in Sumerian documents, where he is called Enki, a brother to Enlil / Adam, who with their father are the three most powerful gods.

Enlil is considered in most traditions to be the first-born son of An (Vase Inscription of Lugalzagesi, Wang 2011: 134), and brother of the goddess Aruru  (Enmerkar and En-suhgir-ana) [Adam and Eve].

silvervaseinscription11

This statement should trigger a query. As was described in the preceding post the celestial beings commonly known as angels, including Enki, are the first born.

Under the ancient law of primogeniture, usually the literal first born son does inherit the birthright. as well as, in a spiritual society, hyper dimensional blessings of the fatherHowever, if the first born son proves himself unworthy of carrying on the father’s legacy, the father can chose to depose him and transfer the inheritance to another who has proven himself worthy. In a process similar to adoption, another son is legally elevated into the first rank birth order and takes on the title of first born and heir.

Enki wasn’t having it.

Now there’s another clue. We can match the Sumerian Enki / Ea who is full of pride and brings down the stars of heaven with the biblical creature who does the same.

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations [these can include family groups of immortals with common descent as much as mortals]! For 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: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. ” (Isaiah 14:12-15)

The Enuma Elish expounds on this mighty spirit being’s plot to overthrow the Almighty.

The divine / immortal brothers / nations banded together [in mutiny], They disturbed…they rushed here and there…

Apsu / Anu could not diminish their clamor…Their doings were loathsome to him. Offensive and overbearing were their ways. Then Apsu / Anu, the begetter of great gods, Cried out, addressing Mummu, his vizier [prime minister who speaks for him, Logos / Word of God]

“0 Mummu, my vizier, who rejoices my spirit, Come hither…”

“Their ways are truly abominable unto me…I will destroy, I will wreck their ways… Let us have rest!”…answered Mummu…”Destroy, my father, their rebellious ways…

  • Apsu / Anu as begetter of the first generation gods commonly known in our time as angels,
  • his spirit,
  • and his son Mummu, the minister / executor doing the hands-on work to accomplish the wishes / word of Apse

These descriptors all correlate to the biblical God as Father, Holy Spirit and Son – Singularity in diversity. 

Lucifer was created, was functioning for some time as an obedient son of the Creator God when God created the heaven and the earth, AKA the garden of God and the holy mountain of God.

Then he chose to rebel. This explains the nights of creation week, the darkness, because “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” (I John 1:5)

His rivalry with Enlil is detailed in the ancient account by Job.

Shall mortal man be more just [competent to pass judgment so put in charge] than God? shall a man be more pure [the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but truth]  than his maker? Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly: How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?…Doth not their excellency which is in them go away?” (Job 4:17:21)

It takes infinitely good judgment and wisdom to process data and devise solutions to multiple and competing needs simultaneously, which surely humans don’t possess.  Most of all, it requires use of the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, because truth is reality, and as soon as you act on a falsehood you aren’t dealing with reality, and the inevitable results clash with reality, I.e. are dysfunctional and destructive.  Anyone capable of maintaining the perfect balance of forces in nature has to be absolutely right-acting (righteous), all-knowing, and 100% accurate in judgment calls. Lucifer questioned God’s judgment in preferring humans, who compare so unfavorably to angels.

What is man, that he should be clean? And he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?  Behold, he [God] putteth no trust in his saints [sinless ones, angels]…How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?” (Job 15:14-16)

“How then can man be justified with God? Or how can he be clean that is born of a woman? Behold…the stars [angels] are not pure in his sight. How much less man, that is a worm [come from the dirt]?” (Job 25:4-6)

The biblical account explains this conundrum, providing common-place, real-life examples, simple to understand, of how the God of the Bible relates to created beings.

The key quality demonstrated by every individual God chooses to be his son is not perfection, but acknowledgement of imperfection and the need to stay connected to, and identified with, the source of Life.

“Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people. I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him…He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation. Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.” (Psalm 89:19-27)

We can get a sense of Lucifer’s super-miffed reaction from the biblical history of what happened when King David elevated Solomon, born not from a princess but a low-born woman of a trashed reputation, as his heir over his older, more experienced and highly politically connected brothers. Adoni-jah revolted, along with his supporters who imagined themselves being raised to higher levels of power in the new administration.

Lucifer’s pride was his undoing. He couldn’t accept God’s decision to promote frail, imperfect humans above the mighty stars. Rule creation? Seriously?  He revolted against his King.

Thou was perfect in thy ways from the day thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. (Ezekiel 28:12-15).

In the following passage focus on the action rather than the destination.

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! …For thou hast said in thine heart: (Isaiah 14:12-14)

  • I will ascend into heaven, i.e. lay hold of the knowledge of heaven, be omniscient.
    • “I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy. Who hath ascended up into heaven…?” (Proverbs 30:3-4)
    • “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.” (Psalm 139:6)
  • I will exalt my throne above the stars of God, i.e. rule over the other stars / sons of God.
    • “After these things did king Ahasuerus promote Haman…and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes that were with him.” (Esther 3:1)
  • I will sit also [upon the mount of the congregation,] i.e. sit while everyone else either bows or stands out of respect, be honored by everyone else, as still is the case in a court of law when the judge enters and takes his seat.
    • “And all the king’s servants, that were in the king’s gate, bowed, and reverenced Haman: for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence.” (Esther 3:2)
  • I will ascend above…the clouds, i.e be the judge of what is right and wrong, bringing  judgment of wrongdoers in the clouds.
    • “…can any understand the spreadings of the clouds…For by them judgeth he the people…(Job 36:29-31)
    • “The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof. Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne. A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about…worship him, all ye gods.” (Psalm 97:1-7)
    • “Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are! And thou sayest, [note, the following questions are by a sceptic] How doth God know? can he judge through the dark cloud? Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; [statement of denial by one who doesn’t want God to see what he does] and he walketh in the circuit of heaven [he oversees all]. [Rebuttal by a believer.] Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee…lift up thy face unto God. Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows. Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.” (Job 22:12-17)
    • “Behold, he [Yeshua] cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” (Revelation 1:7)
  • I will be like the most High.” i.e. in the full attributes of power and authority.
    • “…who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORDGod is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him. LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee?” (Psalm 89:6-8)

It is commonly reported that Lucifer determined to take God’s place, but if we pay attention we realize that the prerogatives Lucifer wanted to seize for himself were being freely given to his alternates – human sons of God.

  • Gifted with knowledge
    • “When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men….apostles…prophets …evangelists…pastors and teachers…till we all come in…the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man.” (Ephesians 4:8-13)
  • Rule over the angels
    • “…we shall judge angels.” (I Corinthians 6:3)
  • Sit in honor
    • “…God…made us sit together in heavenly places in Yahweh’s Chosen Savior/Messiah Yeshua/Christ Jesus…” (Ephesians 2:4-6)
  • Ascend above the clouds
    • “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in The Chosen One / Messiah / Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (I Thessalonians 4:16-17)
  • Identified with God
    • “…in him [Messiah] dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.” (Colossians 2:9-10)

his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue / power: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” (II Peter 1:2-4)

“In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began.” (Titus 1:2)

Notice that these promises are made as part of the whole purpose of creation. Not just to Christians in the last two thousand years. To all the people of the world.

The Serpent / Dragon

The best way to know any personality in literature is to start at his introduction and proceed through the story as his actions reveal his character. As a main character in the Biblical account of human history, the serpent appears at the very beginning of the story, where the Hebrew word for serpent is nachash (where ch is pronounced “k” as in school). True to form, the path this being takes through the story is a crooked and often hidden one. We catch sight of the leader nachash during creation in Job, a prequel to Genesis.

He [God] divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud…his hand hath formed the crooked serpent / nachashthe thunder of his [God’s] power who can understand? (Job 26:6-14)

For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place…In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent / nachash, even leviathan that crooked serpent / nachash; AND he shall slay the dragon / tannin that is in the sea.” (Isaiah 26:21-27:1)

This sea is above the firmament, so in outer space AKA the 2nd heaven.

This prototype fire-breathing dragon in the sea of outer space is so important that he warrants an entire chapter in the Bible describing his powerful attributes.

“Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears? Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.

drogon_kills_kraznys_s3e4

Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.

gameofthrones15_184Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle? Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered. By his [s]neesings [snortings] a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.

dragons_destroy_ships_in_meereen_courtesy-hbo.jpg

In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him. The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone. When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves. The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon [chain mail]. 

29747ff700000578-3116203-image-a-25_1433811406550.jpg

“He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear…Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.” (Job 41)

The pre-flood Sumerian account of their serpent-dragon called Kur attests to Job’s account of nachash at creation.

In the Enuma Elish in Akkadian tablets from the first millennium BC, Kur is part of the retinue of Tiamat, and seems to be a snakelike dragon. In one story the slaying of the great serpent Kur results in the flooding of the earth. 

This vague account doesn’t say much, but does provide parallels to the biblical account of of Lucifer / leviathan / dragon involved in bringing chaos / Tiamat through a flood onto the initial creation as described in the biblical account of creation day one followed by the works of darkness.

Continuing our quest for this reptilian shape-shifter, we find that  “serpent” is also translated from another Hebrew word – seraph. We usually encounter the plural form “seraphim” where “im” ending serves the same pluralizing function in Hebrew as “s” in English. There is a clear connection between the two as the two Hebrew words are freely interchanged and translated into the same word serpent in the following passage.

“And the people spake against God, and against Moses…And the LORD sent fiery serpents / seraphim nachashim among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery-serpent / seraph, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent / nachash of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent / nachash had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent / nachash of brass, he lived.” (Numbers 21:5-9)

“…the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery-serpents / seraphim…(Deuteronomy 8:14-15)

The verb form  means “burning”.  The adjective “fiery” can mean “brilliantly shining” as captured in the image of polished brass.  In another sense this characterizes the power that these beings have over life and death with the use of fire, as with cauterizing a festering wound or inflicting a toxin-induced burning pain or microorganism-induced fever or utter destruction.

“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.” (Isaiah 6:1-6)

7ac260ac81ce8b69f556899677d5518e-sumerian-iranImages of ancient Mesopotamian gods bear a striking resemblance to the biblical description of the seraphim, This would be because they were among the fallen angels. We know that Lucifer fell from the position of an angelic caste called the cherubim.

“Thus saith the LORD GodThou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so…Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee…therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of Godthou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness…(Ezekiel 28:12-17)

According to the statement in Ezekiel, Lucifer was “anointed” and “set” in the position of cherub, like a high priest. We can logically conclude, then, that the looks of cherubim or seraphim described in the Bible are not necessarily intrinsic to the individual beings.

However, Lucifer’s appearance as nachash is so consistent as to give us a means of identification.

“Mysteriously,” virtually identical worship of the serpent in his own form is found in ancient cultures around the world.

The most ancient historical records in existence, some dated prior to the flood, are the Sumerian tablets and other inscribed objects. These predate the oldest extant (still in existence) biblical documents, and give evidence of the pervasive paganism embraced by humankind since earliest history. When we examine what these records say and compare them to the Bible we can recognize the chief god is none other than Lucifer.

7e0fb-ningishzida

The reptilian image of the Nin / Lord “of the Tree of Life, Tree of Truth” is a bit confusing in that there are two elements portraying the same individual, perhaps reflecting what he once was, and what he became. Ningishzida apparently once was one of the two guardians of the King of the Gods, portrayed in this image as “the anointed cherub that covereth” with the same composite features described in the Bible of ox, man, lion, and eagle. (Eze 1, Eze 10) On the side, the “four faces” described by Ezekiel are likely an unavoidably inadequate and inaccurate portrayal of a multi-dimensional being, and the Sumerian two-dimensional portrait is taking artistic license with an impossible task.

“…he made two cherubims of gold…One cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on the other end on that side…And the cherubims spread out their wings on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat, with their faces one to another…” (Exodus 37:7-9)

Ningishzida also identified himself as having become like the most high God, the main player flanked by the bodyguards. Overthrow of a ruler by a coup led by one of his own high ranking military leaders is a common threat in any government. This is transparently none other than Lucifer.

“O LORD of hosts / armies…that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth…”(Isaiah 37:16)

Lucifer is better known and worshipped by the titles referencing his eminent characteristics.

  • Nudimmud = “Begetter of mankind” in Sumerian, reflecting his rivalry with both Creator God and the Adams. This god rules the underworld, abode of deceased mortal humans. He is the god of wisdom, intelligence, trickery, mischief, magic, exorcism, virility, fertility, and many other desired traits.
  • enkieaEn-ki = “Lord of the Earth” in Sumerian, reflecting his rivalry with the human granted this honor. He is in fact granted the role of god of this world by his followers who give up their birthright to him. He is often portrayed with “rivers of fresh water flowing from his shoulders”, or more probably, standing between the key rivers Euphrates and Tigris. However it is interpreted, this represents his claimed aspect of life-giver. Note also how he stands with one foot on the sea and one on earth.
    • “And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven And…he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth…” (Revelation 10:1-6)
  • Ea = translation into the Akkadian language for the same god.

The reality of Lucifer as a hyper-dimensional being that has been involved with humanity from the beginning of history is supported by the fact that he continues to be worshipped in our own culture in new age religions as:

…Serpent Seraph, Winged Serpent, Dragon, Nachash…alter-Form of HERU’s Second Person. He is the Creator and Maintainer of all worlds and beings. He is the Lord of all time [therefore death, you must realize, Beelzebub], WHO ALONE REMAINS (SESHA) AFTER THE ANNIHILATION OF ANY MATERIAL UNIVERSE! [Emphases in the original.]

Not according to the Bible. You do realize this means war. Read the Bible’s retort to Lucifer’s self-presentation.

“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and HIS right foot upon the sea, and HIS left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices [in challenge]And…I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. [Because they are not happening! Satan thunders “I will!” and God shuts him up and overrules him with “No, I WILL!”] 

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer [ergo, according to quantum physics, no more four dimensional universe and according to the Bible no more death]But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” (Revelation 10:1-7) 

“What is man…Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet[stance of victory] (Psalm 8:4-6)

Lucifer / Enki / Cronus was unable to attack humans directly, so he devised a clever strategy to destroy his rivals by subterfuge.

He represents himself as the true benefactor of mankind, the source of power and means to overcome human limitations to become immortal gods. His only goal is to destroy his rivals, which he accomplishes by deceitfully claiming to be The One Who Brings Life.

The essential message of the Bible is the rivalry between Good and Evil and the imperative for humans to choose one or the other. This is the gospel that was carried throughout the world before the Mosaic Law was constituted or the New Testament was written.

whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?…faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.” (Romans 10:13-18)

Zoroastrianism is arguably the world’s oldest monotheistic religion. It centers on the words of the prophet Zarathushtra, called Zoroaster by the ancient Greeks, and focuses worship upon Ahura Mazda, the Lord of Wisdom. It also acknowledges two competing principles representing good and evil: Spenta Mainyu (“Bounteous Spirit”) and Angra Mainyu (“Destructive Spirit”). Humans are intimately involved in this struggle, holding off chaos and destruction through active goodness…

Ahura Mazda, the Zoroastrian Supreme Creator, is the only god worshiped, although the existence of lesser spiritual beings is also recognized. The overriding ethical principle of Zoroastrianism is Humata, Hukhta, Huveshta: “to think good, to speak good, to act good.” This is the divine expectation of humans, and only through goodness will chaos be kept at bay…

It’s important to note that, because Zoroastrianism is so ancient, beliefs and rituals have changed over time.

Lucifer appropriated the Zoroastrian God of light for himself, as the symbol of Gnosticism.

Gnosticism, which became foundational to all ancient religions, teaches that

  1. only a Chosen Few can achieve godhood
  2. through discovery of mysteries hidden to ordinary humans,
  3. by joining mystery cults in which the secrets are incrementally revealed over time as the initiate performs deeds advantageous to the cult proving himself worthy of the sacred knowledge.

This is the antithesis of the Bible’s teaching that

  1. everyone can achieve godhood
  2. through acceptance of provable truth freely manifested to all through God’s creation in the world and written word
  3. by an act of grace from a loving God.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ / The Promised Deliverer” (II Corinthians 11:3)

The simplicity of the Word of God is that a unique Creator God delegating authority to humans who need to be right-acting and super-humanly empowered through the Creator to defeat destruction.

“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts…But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.” (Malachi 4:1-2)

in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: and were by nature the children of wrath…But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, when we were dead in sins, hath quickened / brought to life us together / through being united with Christ / Promised OneAnd hath RAISED US up together / not Lucifer, and made US SIT TOGETHER IN HEAVENLY PLACES / not Lucifer in YHVH’s Promised Savior / Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of our works…we are HIS workmanship, created in YHVH’s Promised Savior / Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:2-10)

It is essential that we humans understand that we are at war with powerful evil spirit beings.  If we are going to win our battles, we have to understand that victory over this supernatural powerful enemy is only made possible when we are empowered by God through connection with his most powerful Spirit.

For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?  Thou… crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands…Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren…And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” (Hebrews 2:5-15)
