ALL CREATURES

HEAVEN

A book by B. J. Coombs

 

Appendix C

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.

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 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."

Many Teachers try to tell us the above verses relate to an earthly being, but the word translated here as created is heb-bara.jpg (1170 bytes) 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 one’s very own existence.

We – us humans are Born - heb-yalad.jpg (1069 bytes) YALAD (as in Job 14:1) heb-yalid.jpg (1141 bytes) YALID (as in Genesis 14:14) heb-yillod.jpg (1063 bytes) YILLOD (as in Exodus 1:22) heb-moledeth.jpg (1385 bytes) MOLEDETH (as in Leviticus 18:9) heb-mibbeten.jpg (1342 bytes) MIBBETEN (as in Psalm 58:3) heb-ezrach.jpg (1332 bytes) EZRACH (as in Exodus 12:19) or heb-ben.jpg (931 bytes) BEN (as in Genesis 15:3).

The only exceptions to this is where heb-bara.jpg (1170 bytes) BARA (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 word Born, 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 heb-ballahah.jpg (1364 bytes) BALLAHAH meaning TROUBLE (Isaiah 17:14): so the end of this verse should read,"…and thou shalt be trouble no longer." (Or, never again).

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 tormented day and night for ever and ever."

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 let’s 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 gr-basanizo.jpg (1731 bytes) BASANIZO meaning exactly that – try, test, pain, toss, vex, - so let’s 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 gr-eternal.gif (1096 bytes) life to as many as Thou hast given Him. 3 And this is life ETERNAL gr-eternal2.gif (1099 bytes) 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".

AION gr-appendix-c14.gif (1169 bytes) in 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 YOUNG’S ANALYTICAL CONCORDANCE TO THE HOLY BIBLE.

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 it’s diabolical ramifications entered into God’s 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 (Christ’s) 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."
