LUCIFER – Satan – Devil - Dragon



He is known by all these names.  He has been attempting to turn God’s creation against God since the Garden of Eden in Genesis.  He has not read the end of the book (Revelation) to see that his story has had it’s conclusion already written.


There are many scriptures that could be mentioned.  There are three passages that detail specific information regarding how he came to be:


Ezekiel 28:11-19  and  Isaiah 14:12-19  and  Revelation  12



Isaiah 14:12 states:


“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!”


This is the only place in scripture the word “Lucifer” is used.  Other translations render the word as being:  “Oh morning star”


Understanding the description of Satan as a “star”, will also aid in understanding the reference to angels being referred to as “stars”.


The following information box is an excerpt from Wikipedia.  It is a simple explanation on the word “Lucifier”.



From the Wiki website at:


Lucifer is the name of various mythological and religious figures associated with the planet Venus. Due to the unique movements and discontinuous appearances of Venus in the sky, mythology surrounding these figures often involved a fall from the heavens to earth or the underworld.


Interpretations of a similar term in the Hebrew Bible, translated in the King James Version as the proper name "Lucifer", led to a Christian tradition of applying the name Lucifer, and its associated stories of a fall from heaven, to Satan, but modern scholarship generally translates the term in the relevant Bible passage (Isaiah 14:12) as "morning star" or "shining one" rather than as a proper name, "Lucifer".


As a name for the Devil, the more common meaning in English, "Lucifer" is the rendering of the Hebrew word הֵילֵל‎ (transliteration: hêylêl; pronunciation: hay-lale) in (Isaiah 14:12) given in the King James Version of the Bible. The translators of this version took the word from the Latin Vulgate which translated  הֵילֵל by the Latin word lucifer (uncapitalized) meaning "the morning star, the planet Venus", or, as an adjective, "light-bringing".


As a name for the planet in its morning aspect, "Lucifer" (Light-Bringer) is a proper name and is capitalized in English
