John 10:22~42

At that time the Feast of the Dedication took place at Jerusalem;  it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple in the portico of  Solomon.  The Jews then gathered around Him, and were saying to Him, "How long will You keep us in suspense? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly."   Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe;  the works that I do in My Father's name, these testify of Me.  "But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep.  "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. "My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. "I and the Father are one."    The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him.  Jesus answered them, "I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?"  The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God."  Jesus answered them, "Has it not been written in your Law, 'I SAID, YOU ARE GODS'?   "If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken),  do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'?    "If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father." Therefore they were seeking again to seize Him, and He eluded their grasp.  And He went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was first baptizing, and He was staying there.  Many came to Him and were saying "While John performed no sign, yet everything John said about this man was true."  Many believed in Him there.

The Parable of the Lost Sheep

Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him. And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, "This Man receives sinners and eats with them." So He spoke this parable to them, saying:
"What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, "Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!' I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

The Parable of the Lost Son

Then He said: "A certain man had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, "Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.' So he divided to them his livelihood. And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living. But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.

"But when he came to himself, he said, "How many of my father's hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants."'

"And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. And the son said to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.'
"But the father said to his servants, "Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' And they began to be merry.

"Now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. So he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant. And he said to him, "Your brother has come, and because he has received him safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.'

"But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him. So he answered and said to his father, "Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends. But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.'
"And he said to him,  "Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours. It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found."'

Matthew 12:31

Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

Ephesian 2:8

For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

" 'In the pride of your heart
you say, "I am a god;
I sit on the throne of a god
in the heart of the seas."
But you are a man and not a god,
though you think you are as wise as a god.
Ezekiel 28:2

Lucifer "Luci = light - fer = Bearer"
Angel of Light
Brilliant one
Son of the morning
Diabolos "wicked one"

He is the "god of this world."  Paul in I Corinthians 4:4,  says that the eyes of the unbelievers have been blinded by the "god of this world."
He became god of this world when the dominion that God had given to Adam was forfeited by Adam.  "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES."  Principalities.  The Greek word for here is arche, and can be translated either "beginning" or "principality."

Can you imagine what Lucifer looked like as he reflected the glory of God at the throne? The stones are mentioned in Ezekiel 28:13.  The sardius is reddish-brown; the topaz is deep yellow; the diamond is clear and reflects all colors; the beryl is dark red; the onyx is multicolored; the jasper is blue-green; the sapphire is rich blue; the emerald is green; the carbuncle is blood red.  Lucifer was beautifully arrayed in a rainbow of color to reflect the outshining glory of the Holy God. In the midst of all this beauty he surely began to be self-deceived into believing that some of the glory was his own!

It is good to be able to play a musical instrument.  How much more majestic to be one!  Lucifer was not only a musician, but he was music in himself.  "The workmanships of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou was created"  (Ezekiel 28:13).  This was his praise to the God of heaven.  This creature of spotless character, flawless beauty, unceasing praise, unimaginable color, and musical majesty we have Lucifer  before he became Satan.  His work of accusation is universal.  He will accuse God to us, us to ourselves, others to us, and us to others.  He accuses by inference or by insinuation.  Did you notice how subtle his question to Eve was on the occasion of her sin and Adam's?  "Hath God said? was his approach (Gen. 3:1).  Victory implies struggle, battles, and warfare.  Without an enemy there is no victory.  We have an enemy, and he has troops.  We also have a commander and allies.  The wonderful truth about this war is that the outcome has already been determined and the gift of victory is already the personal possession of every child of God.  If you are going to fight a war, that is the kind to fight!  Jesus  is the victor and has vanquished the foe!  The announcement has already been made and has become reality in heaven.  We are set in the world to be the means by which the Holy Spirit produces in terms of reality in the earth that which is already true in heaven.  There is not even room for a shadow of a doubt as to our VICTORY.  It is ours NOW!  In the preincarnate announcement in Isaiah 61, the Messiah declared, "THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD GOD IS UPON ME; BECAUSE HE HATH ANNOINTED ME TO PREACH TIDINGS UNTO THE MEEK; HE HATH SENT ME TO BIND UP THE BROKEN HEARTED, TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES."  He PROCLAIMS liberty because He has already PROCURED liberty!

Angels are heavenly creatures and are an expression of God's love...
We do not worship angels... We do not pray to angels...
We do not follow doctrine given by "A" angel of the Lord...
Man "Kings" will judge the angels...
 

1 John 4:20

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother,
he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath
seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
 
 

Ezekiel 28: 11~18

Again the word of the LORD came to me saying,
"Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of
Tyre and say to him, '

Thus says the Lord GOD, "You had the seal of perfection,
          Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

       "You were in Eden, the garden of God;
          Every precious stone was your covering:
          The ruby, the topaz and the diamond;
          The beryl, the onyx and the jasper;
          The lapis lazuli, the turquoise and the emerald;
          And the gold, the workmanship of your settings and sockets,
          Was in you.
          On the day that you were created
         They were prepared.

       "You were the anointed cherub who covers,
          And I placed you there.
          You were on the holy mountain of God;
         You walked in the midst of the stones of fire.

       "You were blameless in your ways
          From the day you were created
          Until unrighteousness was found in you.

       "By the abundance of your trade
          You were internally filled with violence,
          And you sinned;
          Therefore I have cast you as profane
          From the mountain of God.
          And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub,
          From the midst of the stones of fire.

       "Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
          You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor.
          I cast you to the ground;
  I put you before kings,
  That they may see you.

       "By the multitude of your iniquities,
          In the unrighteousness of your trade
          You profaned your sanctuaries.
          Therefore I have brought  fire from the midst of you;
          It has consumed you,
          And I have turned you to ashes on the earth
          In the eyes of all who see you.


 

Luke 18: 20
However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you,
but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. Psalm 42:1
