From Lucifer to Satan

As Christians, we have been taught from a young age that Lucifer and Satan are one being. Lucifer was the choir director in Heaven. Throughout his body were musical pipes, but then pride was found in him, due to miraculous beauty. Lucifer was then thrown down to the Earth before the Earth was even formed, which resulted in the Earth being left in Chaos.

Once thrown down, he became known as the Devil and Satan, vowing to destroy all of mankind. But is this the true origin of Satan? Did he really fall before the Earth was even formed? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture to find the truth.

Verses on Lucifer and Satan


His Sin

12 How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! 13 You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north; 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’

Isaiah 14:12-14
His Punishment

15 But you are brought down to Sheol, to the far reaches of the pit.

Isaiah 14:15

Lucifer’s sin was that he desired to be like God, whereas Satan’s sin was that he tried to kill God.


His Sin

1 And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it.

She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days. Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back,

Revelation 12:1-7
His Punishment

but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

Revelation 12:8-9

The Anointed Guardian Cherub

The Sin

14 You were an anointed guardian cherub. I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked. 15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till unrighteousness was found in you. 16 In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned; so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God, and I destroyed you, O guardian cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you.

Ezekiel 28:14-17
The Punishment

18 By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries; so I brought fire out from your midst; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all who saw you.

Ezekiel 28:18

Lucifer, Satan, and the Anointed Guardian Cherub Table

Lucifer, Satan, and the Anointed Guardian Cherub are three different beings for several reasons, but specifically, because their sins and their punishments were very different. One was thrown to earth, another to the pit, and the last was destroyed (turned to ash).
