S is for...satan

satan...is described as an angelic being or personality.  He was one of the most beautiful of creatures God created.  No he does not have red skin, or a pitchfork, and he does not breathe fire and brimstone.  satan was the most beautiful of the angels that God created, and is one of the most intelligent of God's creation.  In Ezekiel 28:11-19 the Bible says this about satan...

The word of the LORD came to me: 12 "Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says:

" 'You were the model of perfection,
full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

13 You were in Eden,
the garden of God;
every precious stone adorned you:
ruby, topaz and emerald,
chrysolite, onyx and jasper,
sapphire,  turquoise and beryl.
Your settings and mountings  were made of gold;
on the day you were created they were prepared.

14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub,
for so I ordained you.
You were on the holy mount of God;
you walked among the fiery stones.

15 You were blameless in your ways
from the day you were created
till wickedness was found in you.

16 Through your widespread trade
you were filled with violence,
and you sinned.
So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God,
and I expelled you, O guardian cherub,
from among the fiery stones.

17 Your heart became proud
on account of your beauty,
and you corrupted your wisdom
because of your splendor.
So I threw you to the earth;
I made a spectacle of you before kings.

18 By your many sins and dishonest trade
you have desecrated your sanctuaries.
So I made a fire come out from you,
and it consumed you,
and I reduced you to ashes on the ground
in the sight of all who were watching.

19 All the nations who knew you
are appalled at you;
you have come to a horrible end
and will be no more.' "

The five "I wills" of satan from Isaiah 14:12-17

12 How you have fallen from heaven,
O morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!


13 You said in your heart,
"I will ascend to heaven; ~1
I will raise my throne
above the stars of God; ~2
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. ~3


14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; ~4
I will make myself like the Most High." ~5


15 But you are brought down to the grave,
to the depths of the pit.


16 Those who see you stare at you,
they ponder your fate:
"Is this the man who shook the earth
and made kingdoms tremble,


17 the man who made the world a desert,
who overthrew its cities
and would not let his captives go home?"

I think scripture speaks for itself on satan and who he was and is.  In my experience, satan enjoys messing with you at any opportunity, so don't even give him a micro millimeter...not sure if that is a proper phrase, but I'm going to go with it...for he needs no invitation, he has no morals, no boundaries that he respects, no guilty feelings for anything he does so if I can coin a phrase from a Bible School song we used to sing...shut de door, keep out de devil...shut de door, keep de devil in the night, shut de door, keep out de devil, light the candle everythings all right! Blessings to you all on this fine day, now go on over to Arlee's @tossing it out and read up on a new blog today!

So often we look for the "boggeyman" when Satan is sitting right next to us all beautiful and angelic.

Thanks for reminding us of His Word.

This will sound corny, but one of the best things I ever heard came from a movie - "The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world he didn't exist."
