About Lucifer/Satan being in Heaven
Even Satan Himself will eventually accept Jesus as His Lord and King (though it take billions of years if time existed, which it will not), and be allowed back into Heavenly citizenship, though he will be the lowest creature there.
created, till iniquity was found in thee .Thine 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 .All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror and never shalt thou be any more."
Ezekiel 28:14-19 "Thou 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. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast
Many Teachers try to tell us the above verses relate to an earthly being, but the word translated here as created is BARA meaning to prepare form create; created by God: this refers to all things and creatures apart from those here on this earth to which and to whom God has given the unique powers of procreation: Us! And our flora and fauna. We are the only creation that we presently know of to whom/which God has given this attribute the ability to reproduce akin to ones very own existence.
We us humans are Born - YALAD (as in Job 14:1) YALID (as in Genesis 14:14) YILLOD (as in Exodus 1:22) MOLEDETH (as in Leviticus 18:9) MIBBETEN (as in Psalm 58:3) EZRACH (as in Exodus 12:19) or BEN (as in Genesis 15:3).
The only exceptions to this is whereBARA (Created) is used in Genesis 1 and 2 referring to Adam and Eve, and in Psalm 102:18 which is referring to the newly created/raised Israelites in Ezekiel 37.
So this anointed cherub referred to here must have been an angelic being of the highest order, because this passage of scripture could not possibly refer to a human. Further study conclusively proves this Being to be Lucifer; or as He became later Satan.
The above transliteration of the seven Hebrew words which are all translated into the English language as the one wordBorn, is a very good example of the difficulties of translating the shades of meaning of the language of the Bible into another language which does not have the same intricacies or complexities of understanding. (Exactly the same concept applies to both Aramaic and Greek). This difficulty of translation is one of the main causes of confusion among Christian sects and denominations this difficulty of understanding the exact shade of meaning which God intends for us to apply to our lives can only be arrived at by meticulous study of His Holy Word by going back to the original languages with the presence and help of the HOLY SPIRIT with a heart ready and open to receive His leading. Today there is no excuse for wrong misinterpretations or beliefs because, today, thanks to the dedication of so many Men/Women of God over the centuries, we have concordances, expository dictionaries and all sorts of books of reference that I say once again there is no excuse for believing wrongly then of course we now have the internet where there is such a wealth of information about both sides of any particular subject that with the leading of the Holy Spirit we should now be able to find/receive the TRUTH.
Back to the original scripture
Ezekiel 28:19 " thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more."
The words shalt thou be are not in the original text, but were inserted here by the translators and are italicized (meaning not in the original) in most Bibles (in the Jerusalem Bible the wording is slightly different, but the main words we are looking at are still the same). The word terror is BALLAHAH meaning TROUBLE (Isaiah 17:14): so the end of this verse should read," and thou shalt be trouble no longer." (Or, never again).
tormented day and night for ever and ever."
Revelation 20:10 "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be
Now this is where possibly the biggest deception distorted belief mistranslation - misunderstood and reprehensible teaching of the whole present day Christian belief occurs that "for ever and ever" or "forever and ever" or "unto the ages of the ages" as written in the English language leads those who are not receptive to the Holy Spirit to believe there is no ending (as most Christians believe and teach). This is entirely WR0NG, so lets go back to the original GREEK and unravel this very controversial and misunderstood subject with the help of the Holy Spirit.
We have already determined that the "lake of fire" can only be symbolic (see chapter 4), with the word translated here as tormented being BASANIZO meaning exactly that try, test, pain, toss, vex, - so lets try and understand that the words "for ever and ever" "forever and ever" do NOT mean that the age never ends.
Here are the actual Greek words that are translated into the English language as"ever and ever"
Unto the ages of the ages
The Scriptures describe but do not actually define eternal life. One of the nearest approaches to a definition is given in John 17:2-3. "As thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give ETERNAL life to as many as Thou hast given Him. 3 And this is life ETERNAL that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent."
You will perceive that both of the Greek words are different from each other and both are different from both of the "Ages of the Ages".
AIONin the following transliterations means "an indefinite period of time."
Here are accurate copies of three verses showing the shades of meaning in the original Greek from YOUNGS ANALYTICAL CONCORDANCE TO THE HOLY BIBLE.
5. To ages of ages,
Rev. 14:11 smoke..ascendeth up for ever and ever
You will see that the above copy uses
6. To the age of the age
Heb. 1:8 Thy throne,O God, (is) for ever and ever:
Notice particularly that the above copy doesNOT use
7. To the ages of the ages
Rev. 20:10 tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Perceive meticulously that the above copyDOES use
What more can the Writer write? Except to say if you disagree with the above interpretation of pure scripture pray about it with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the only way.
This book is about everything that our God has ever created, being renewed by Him according to His promise, and given a full wonderful eternal (never to end) life as He originally intended, before Lucifer fell and sin with all its diabolical ramifications entered into Gods creation.
Here are a few verses which have been amplified in previous chapters.

Ephesians 1:10 "[He planned] for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, [both] things in heaven and things in earth," (Amplified).
1 Corinthians 15:25 "For He (Christ) must reign, till He (God) hath put all enemies under His (Christs) feet.
26 The last enemy to be subdued and abolished is death".
2 Timothy 1:10 "[It is that purpose and grace] which He now has made known and has fully disclosed and made real [to us] through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus Who annulled death and made it of no effect, and brought life and immortality that is immunity from eternal death to light through the Gospel." (Amplified).
Revelation 21:4 "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.
5 And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful."
