Isaiah Chapter 14
The Devil, a regular King, or Jesus?
In the King James Bible it says in Isaiah 14:12-15
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! 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.
The other New Age Bibles either use the term “morning star” or “day star” to replace “Lucifer”.
We know that Jesus is called the morning star in Revelation 22:16 and it’s not capitalized. Jesus is called the day star in 2 Peter 1:19 and it’s not capitalized there either.
So is Isaiah speaking of the Devil, Jesus, or just an earthly king? Well we can see from the context that someone called the King of Babylon has fallen from heaven. It doesn’t mention his name until verse 12, which just happens to be Lucifer according to the KJV.
Because of the references to earthly things such as death and worms, many people believe that the King of Babylon spoken of here is an earthly king, but it can not be, because an earthly king can not fall from heaven. Furthermore Jesus clearly said in
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
So this couldn’t be talking about a man. If you think it’s a man being spoken of the Isaiah 14 you are clearly contradicting what Jesus said about ascension into heaven, which Jesus said that no man had done.
The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 2:13 that we are supposed to compare spiritual things with spiritual. Every Christian knows that the proper way to study the Bible is to compare scripture with scripture, not to run to the Greek or Hebrew or our Pastor or our commentary. We are supposed to use the Bible to interpret itself.
So to prove that the Bible is speaking of the Devil we have to find other verses which speak of the fall of the Devil and see if they match Isaiah’s story. We find out immediately that they do.
THE FALLEN ANGEL – LUCIFER
Revelation Chapter 12:7-13
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
Now doesn’t that sound just like what Isaiah said? The Devil rebels and is cast down to the earth, just like the king of Babylon. The earth is warned about the devil coming down, just like the nations in Isaiah were.
I’m not sure if Revelation is speaking of a future event where the devil is cast out of heaven down to the earth during the tribulation or if it’s referring to the original rebellion of Satan, but I believe it represents the former because of certain phrases like “the accuser of our brethren”. It doesn’t matter for this discussion because you find in both Revelation and Isaiah that the nations are warned about the Devil’s fall. So they match.
Yes there were nations around when the Devil originally rebelled. Remember that God told Adam to be fruitful and multiply and REPLENISH the earth. There were some kind of people here before man was created that were destroyed. I don’t know who they were, because the Bible doesn’t tell us much about them, but they may have been angels because the Bible says in Job 38:4-7
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?… When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
We will get back to that verse later because it’s important to our study of translation. Anyway the point is made that the account of the fall of the Devil in Revelation matches the one in Isaiah. So far the KJV has the correct translation. Not the new bibles.
Another place we read about the fall of the devil is in Ezekiel.
The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God: 3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: 4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: 5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: 6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; 7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. 8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas. 9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. 10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. 11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 13 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: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14 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. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 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. 18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 19 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.
Here there is NO doubt that it is about the devil because it says that he was in the Eden, the garden of God. It doesn’t matter what your opinion is. The king of Tyrus was not in the garden of Eden. I don’t care what your Pastor or commentary or Wikipedia edited by Luciferian Masons taught you.
The earthly king of Tyrus wasn’t in the garden. Try to find him. Go ahead and search the whole Bible. Who was in the garden? Well let’s see… God, the man, the woman, and the serpent. Ah, the serpent we just read in Revelation that the old serpent is the Devil. So could it be talking about him? Obviously it is because the story again matches the one in Isaiah and Revelation.
Ezekiel also gives us more information about the Devil. We learn that he’s also called the anointed cherub that covereth and the covering cherub. We also see the mountain of God referred to again. The stones of fire spoken of as well. Furthermore we see that he fell because of pride which again matches Isaiah.
That’s obviously the devil people. If you can’t see that, the Devil has deceived you. But look at what he’s called. The king of Tyrus. So the devil is a king. When he shows up for the first time in the Bible he has already rebelled against God and his first words cast doubt on God’s word (Genesis chapter 3). God warns us again about a king in Job 41:1-34
Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? 2 Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? 3 Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? 4 Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? 5 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? 6 Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? 7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears? 8 Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. 9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? 10 None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me? 11 Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. 12 I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion. 13 Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle? 14 Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about. 15 His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. 16 One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. 17 They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered. 18 By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. 19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. 20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. 21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. 22 In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him. 23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. 24 His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone. 25 When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves. 26 The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon. 27 He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. 28 The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. 29 Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear. 30 Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire. 31 He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment. 32 He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary. 33 Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear. 34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.
We know that Leviathan can’t be a regular animal because it says in verse 18-19 that he breathes fire. No animal that I know of breathes fire. It doesn’t matter what you’ve been taught, this animal does not exist in the zoological record.
You notice that it says that when he moves through the water a path shines after him. Is it any wonder that another name for the Devil which Satanists use is Phosphos, which means light bearer, which is the same thing that Lucifer means?
Devil worshippers know more about the Bible than most Christians. We just read in Ezekiel that the Devil was wiser than Daniel and Jesus said in Luke 16:8 that the children of this world are wiser than the children of light. We’ll get back to that.
The abnormal animal of Job points us again back to Revelation chapter 12 where the devil is described as a dragon and a serpent. Job also informs us that the devil is called a king just like Isaiah and Ezekiel did. A king over the children of pride. Could that possibly be a regular animal. NO POSSIBLE WAY! I don’t care what you’ve been taught. A dime-store King James Bible clears up a whole bunch of education. Education can send people to hell if they’ve been taught improperly just as fast as ignorance.
If these scriptures are dismissed as mere earthly kings, weird animals, etc. then God has left us with NO record of the devil’s fall.
Every Christian who listens to the Holy Spirit knows who these passages are speaking of. They are speaking of the devil and they match the story told in Isaiah 14, so Isaiah must be speaking of the devil, not an earthly king.
It doesn’t matter what your opinion is or what you’ve been taught, God has spoken. He gave his mind on the matter. We must compare scripture with scripture and not go to outside sources to prove our points until we have done that. This is what is called cross referencing.
What we are doing here is making sure our opinion about Isaiah 14 matches God’s opinion. If Isaiah 14 is talking about the devil then it had to match the other passages about the devil’s fall, which is does. Now that we have established that we can further look at the Hebrew and see if God’s opinion matches the Hebrew text as well. Obviously it does, but we have to go through it for those who doubt God’s word.
In the Hebrew text God calls the king in question “helel”. Can this word be translated as “morning star” or “day star”? Not likely. The word for morning in Hebrew is “shachar” and the word for star is “kokab”. The Hebrew says “helel, ben shacher” NOT “shachar kokab, ben shacher”. The word for morning only appears once and the word for star doesn’t appear at all. In other words it reads “Lucifer, son of the morning” NOT “morning star, son of the morning”. All the commentaries and dictionaries will tell you that “helel” means morning star or day star. They are ALL WRONG! How do I know that?
In Hebrew “morning star” would be “shachar kokab”. If God wanted this passage to read “morning star” he could have used “shachar kokab” like he did in Job 38:7. He wanted this one to be different. God choose the word “helel” instead of “shachar kokab” on purpose.
Helel is a unique word that doesn’t appear anywhere else in the Bible. Remember that helel is one word and to translate it into morning star breaks it up into two words, which is SOMETIMES necessary in translation, but NOT in this case, since helel also means “light bearer”.
As I already mentioned, Devil worshipers use the term Light Bearer, Phosphos, the Shining One, etc. which all refer to light. We already have an English word that means “light bearer”. Guess what it is? Oh come on… Guess!!!!
The word Lucifer is an English word that comes from the Latin “lux fero” or “lux phero” which means literally, light bearer. So what better word could you choose than Lucifer for “helel”? It means the exact same thing. You may note that the Satanic symbol for Lucifer has always been an upside down star showing the fall of the Devil.
So Lucifer is the PERFECT word to choose, not morning star or day star. It has exactly the right meaning.
So you may ask why the new bible translators used the term “morning star” or “day star” instead of Lucifer. The answer…
They don’t like the word Lucifer. It’s too offensive I guess. This is only passage in the entire Bible that identified the Devil with the name Lucifer.
New Agers like Luciferians, Masons, and Theosophists all believe that Jesus and Lucifer are the same thing. They try to convince Christians to worship Lucifer because it’s just another name for Christ. Guess what????
This is the only passage of the Bible which proves them wrong.
Dr. Frank Logsdon, who was involved with the translation of the New American Standard Bible wrote “I must under God renouce every attachment to the New American Standard… the deletions are absolutely frightening… there are so many… Are we so naive that we do not suspect Satanic deception is all of this?” He goes on to write “[Y]ou can say the Authorized Version [KJV] is absolutely correct. How correct? 100% correct.”
That’s from the horse’s mouth kiddies. You may disagree with me. You may even disagree with God. But why would you disagree with someone who worked on those Bibles and admits he was deceived by the Devil? If you don’t believe that the word Lucifer was removed from the new bibles by the Devil, you ARE naive.
