Pamphlet 1778 Plan of God kc 3-2

"Satan was judged and sentenced to eternal DEATH!"

Ezekiel 28:14
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.
Ezekiel 28:16
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence,
The NIV reads: "Your great wealth filled you with internal turmoil and you sinned."

Hey, he loved THINGS and MONEY!

Well now there's a surprise!

I've never seen a priest or minister or government official corrupted by money before, have you?

and thou hast sinned:
This Hebrew word for "sinned" is "chata'" and it is extremely important to understand its meaning, for contained in this word is what Satan DID that was so EVIL.
chat*a', khaw-taw', Hebrew 2398; a primitive root; properly to miss; hence (figurative and general) to sin; by inference to forfeit, lack, expiate, repent, (causative) lead astray, condemn :- bear the blame, cleanse, commit [sin], by fault, harm he hath done, loss, miss, (make) offend (-er), offer for sin, purge, purify (self), make reconciliation, (cause, make) sin (-ful, -ness), trespass.
The proper meaning here is (CAUSATIVE) LEAD ASTRAY. "Causative" as defined by Webster is: (1.) effective or operating as a cause or agent (2.) expressing causation; specif.: being a linguistic form that indicates that the subject causes an act to performed or a condition to come into being.

You see, Rev. 12:4 declares that Satan drew the third part of God's children away from God, and CAUSED them to fall to the earth, which is a figure of speech meaning he caused them to "fall" from "tamiym", perfection, from the good graces of our Father and from listening to and following Him! Satan "sinned".


Rev. 12:4
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:
That, my friends, is the GROSS SIN that Satan committed.

It wasn't so bad that he himself became corrupted, for He could have been removed from the scene and life would have continued on as "rosy" as it was in the very beginning when Gen. 1:1 came to pass and God created this beautiful earth and His sons were happy and delighted and joyful.

We will soon read that our Father was VERY angry about all of this, VERY angry!

Let's finish Ezekiel 28:16. Ezekiel 28:16 [..continued]  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.

Satan was REMOVED from office and the "Breastplate of the 12 Stones" was stripped from his vesture as the FIRST JUDGMENT takes place (we are reading it now) and he is to be found GUILTY by virtue of the overwhelming preponderance of the EVIDENCE and his DEATH SENTENCE is about to be announced!

Here is more of what the Judge has to say to Satan.

God already said in the last verse that because of his wealth and financial dealings he HAS BEEN FILLED with VIOLENCE, which doesn't mean what we normally think of as violence.

It is the Hebrew word "chamac" and it means "corruption":

chamac*, khaw-mawce', Hebrew 2555; from Hebrew 2554 (chamac*); violence; by implication wrong; by meton. unjust gain :- cruel (-ty), damage, false, injustice, oppressor, unrighteous, violence (against, done), violent (dealing), wrong.
So Satan became very CORRUPT and was fired from all his high positions.

What else did he do?

Ezekiel 28:17
Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness:
Oh, he become an egomaniac too!

He just thinks he's the greatest and people can't do without him.

As they say, "Well there's another surprise!" Satan is Mr. Ego.

[17 ..continued] I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
Check out this sentencing!

Satan is going to get a great big lesson in HUMILITY, though not for his sake, but for the benefit of the other children, to serve as an Example and a Reminder to them!

When will this sentence be carried out?

During the Millennium when he is cast into the pit and everyone who walks by will "narrowly" look upon him, meaning they will "look down" on him and see him as the "slime ball" he really is.

This will be embarrassing and very traumatic for Mr. Ego who was once a big man.

Here is your documentation from Isaiah:

Isaiah 14:12-16
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!
Yes, there were nations back then, and there are nations now, and there will be nations in the eternity (Rev. 21).

As you read this scripture in light of what we have learned in this study, the phrase "The Bigger they are the Harder they Fall" might come to mind.

This Lucifer was great in power and authority and he took a Big, Big Fall!

But worse yet, He WEAKENED the nations with his holier-than-thou, with his "I know what's right and wrong (the knowledge of good and evil) better than God's Word" attitude.

In other words, he thinks he knows what is best for the people, which is nothing more than a bunch of his LIBERAL, EGOTISTICAL, SOCIALISTIC CRAP!

It weakens nations!

Look around you!


[13] 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:
He wanted to completely take over!

He wanted to be God!

I look around and see many just like him in lofty positions of power who also think they are God.

[14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
I don't think so!
[15] Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
You're goin' DOWN Mr. Luciferl!
[16] They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
Yes, folks will marvel that they allowed this good-for-nothing, egotistical, idolatrous, corrupt liberal to cause such problems for all of us.

These next two verses contain Satan's FINAL SENTENCE of judgment pronounced by our Father.

It is the ONLY ONE of its kind to this point in all of eternity!

Ezekiel 28:18
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.
Satan has profaned the holy places, the HIGH OFFICES, by the MULTITUDE of his INIQUITIES, by one perverse scandal after another!

Maybe you would you like to see the Hebrew word for "iniquities"?

`avon, aw-vone', Hebrew 5771; or avown, aw-vone'; (2 Kings 7:9; Psa. 51:5 [77]), from Hebrew 5753 (`avah); perversity, i.e. (moral) evil :- fault, iniquity, mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin.
You know what our Father did about it?

You just read it!

He sentenced Satan to die, to PERISH.

That's right, He sentenced one of his own children, who he at one time was very fond and proud of, to eternal DEATH.

And so the once beautiful high ranking Lucifer, now the lowly fallen Satan, will henceforth be called the "son of Perdition", the one son of God (so far) who definitely WILL PERISH in the lake of fire!

[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.
Yes, Satan will be a terror for a little while, even as God will use him in His Plan, and people WILL BE astonished at him when he is allowed to show up in this final generation and assume his former lofty position (even loftier, for he will claim to be Jesus Christ).

But his sentence has already been passed and it is FINAL, and there is no appeal to a higher authority, for there is no higher authority than our Father.

Hey, what about all of the other children who Satan caused to fall?

We didn't read anything about them being judged!

Were any other sons judged back then?

Yes, actually there were some who were also judged (though they were not fallen ones) and even justified.

We will read all about them soon enough!

You might even be one of them!

But the good news is that the next court date set for FINAL JUDGMENT has been postponed until AFTER the Millennium, because our Father has a Plan to save as many of His children who will turn back to Him.

It is called the Plan of Salvation, and it is a Plan of Love for His children!

You are about to find out why you are here in the flesh!

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.

1 Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them {the ancient Israelites} for ensamples, and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
