Is Satan Stronger Than Lucifer?

Satan and Lucifer

Satan and Lucifer are two different beings. Everything about Lucifer and Satan is different, including what type of being they are. Satan is a Beast of the Field, while Lucifer is a star-like celestial being.


1b Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made.

Genesis 3:1b

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, 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 12:7-9

12 How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star (Lucifer), 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.’ 15 But you are brought down to Sheol, to the far reaches of the pit.

Lucifer is stronger than Satan for many reasons, but one main reason. Lucifer is an angel, while Satan is a Glorious One. Angels are stronger than the Glorious Ones because they have to fight off territorial spirits in order to bring messages between the realms.

10 and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority. Bold and willful, they do not tremble as they blaspheme the glorious ones, 11 whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not pronounce a blasphemous judgment against them before the Lord.

2 Peter 2:10-11
