Pamphlet #5003
  Did it ever occur to you that you were being deceived
when you were taught only the bad things about Satan?

Were you ever taught that Satan Was Once Our Chief Priest?

Were you ever taught that even though he is evil,
he is still, today, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty?
and that if you don't know that, it will be easy for him to deceive you into worshiping him
when he stands where he ought not, claiming that he is Christ, during the end time?

You are aware that God created all of His sons,
including you and me, even before the creation of the earth in Gen. 1:1?

One of those sons, was named Lucifer, which means "morning star",
a title of great honor.

We also read from Job 38:7 that at the creation of this beautiful earth,
the "morning stars" formed the chorus as they sang together
while all the rest of the sons of God cheered for great joy.

Lucifer was among those morning stars who sang. (Job 38:7
"When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?")

Let's read about this "morning star", Lucifer, in the Book of Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Ezekiel is referring to Lucifer as once being a very honorable and esteemed individual
by our Father and all of His children too!
[13] Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God;
This verse documents that we are not talking about the literal human king of Tyre.
This is all about Satan.
This next part of the verse is very insightful if you have eyes to see and are familiar with God's Word.
[13 ... continued] every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
First we see that Satan was created just like everyone else.
But, we also see that a "workmanship" was also prepared for him.
What in the world is that?

Here's the definition of the Hebrew word "workmanship".

mela'kah, mel-aw-kaw', Hebrew 4399; from the same as Hebrew 4397 (mal'ak);properly deputyship, i.e. ministry; generally employment (never servile) or work (abstract or concrete); also property (as the result of labor) :- business, + cattle, + industrious, occupation, (+ -pied), + officer, thing (made), use, (manner of) work ([-man], -manship).
Lucifer was given a very important duty or position in the first earth age.
He was a priest!

No, you say, you never heard such a thing!

 Notice in verse 13 that "every precious stone" adorned him.
This means that Satan wore the "Breastplate of a Priest of God",

a very high position indeed!

Yes, and verse 14 will show he was "anointed" to this position by our Father.

You see, these stones listed in verse 13
are exactly the same as the stones that the Levitical priests wear in this earth age. 

Why do you think Satan was called "The tree who knew both GOOD< and>EVIL" in the Garden of Eden?

The two very different trees in the garden!

Remember, aside from the other trees in the garden of Eden, there are two specific trees mentioned there: 1) the tree of life, and 2) the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Do you know what or who they were? (Note: throughout the Bible trees symbolically represent people) Don't forget. the second tree mentioned in the "Garden of Eden" knows both GOOD & EVIL.
There were two trees in the Garden of Eden:---One was "The Tree of Life" (Jesus Christ); His fruit will lead you to ETERNAL LIFE! and the other was "The Tree of the Knowledge of GOOD and EVIL" (Satan); his fruit leads to ETERNAL DEATH!, even though some of it is good. Satan returns to earth, claiming he is God, five months before Christ's return. God is allowing Satan five months on earth as a test for us, to see if we who claim to be Christians really know the difference between What is HOLY and what is PROFANE!--- DON'T FORGET THAT SATAN IS A SUPERNATURAL ARCHANGEL We will be no match for him and his trickery with out "The Seal of God in Our Foreheads". He fooled and seduced Eve in the garden! Don't you be fooled by his good fruit, and worship him as God.--- Watch for the EVIL fruit! Don't have Christ return to find you have already been to bed with Satan! Will you remain spiritually true as a "chaste virgin" and wait for your bridegroom, Jesus Christ, or will you spiritually hop in bed with Satan when he comes to earth performing miracles and claims to be God?   (Live Link)to-Let's talk about TREES & "tree symbology"  

Satan was the tree in the garden with the knowledge of both good and evil.   He will come back to earth in person, claiming he is God, five months prior to our Lord Jesus Christ's return. Don't you be fooled by the good he can and will do, to make you believe he is God! Study to show yourself approved; knowing the difference between what is holy (The Real Jesus Christ) and what is profane (The Instead-of-Christ,  Satan, i.e.the anti-christ).;.Also remember ,he brings his fallen angels, from the days of Noah, with him and he already has plenty of help here on earth, i.e. Kenites from his encounter with Eve in the garden! (descendants of Cain).

See Live Link to- It was Satan Who Planted the Tares in the Garden
See Live Link to- Just as it was in the Days of Noah

Here is a description of a priest's breastplate from Exodus 28, so we know for sure.
(You can compare stone for stone if you like.)
Exodus 28:17-21 And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones:
the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row.

[18] And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.

[19] And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

Note to the deeper scholar: This entire third row is missing from Ezekiel 28:13 in Hebrew, but it is supplied in the Septuagint.

[20] And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.
[21] And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.

So we now understand that this "morning star", Lucifer,
was a high priest of God even over the children of God.
Think about it!
Let's read more about him in Ezekiel 28.
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.
God anointed Lucifer as a "protector of the mercy seat",
which is where Christ sits (there are only two cherubs that cover the Ark of the Covenant),
and set him high upon the holy mountain,
which is the seat of authority of the kingdom of God,
i.e. he also had a very high governmental position.

 In the first earth age Lucifer walked up and down in the midst of God's Children,
who are those "stones of fire" we just read of in the last verse.

You see, our Father is a consuming fire (spiritually).
That's why these stones are called stones of fire for they are His children.
Your documentation is found in Hebrews 12:29 "For our God is a consuming fire."

So Satan really had it made at one time, didn't he?
He had it ALL, as we say.

Now read this next verse about him.

[15] Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
Uh oh! Something has gone haywire!
God created this son, Lucifer, "perfect",
which if you take the time to look up this word in your Strong's Concordance
you will find it means "without blemish", "undefiled", i.e.
He created him not only to be beautiful,
but also morally upright,
and so at one time he did have integrity.

However, God ALSO gave all of His children, you and me and Lucifer, FREE WILL,
so Lucifer, once a beautiful morning star,
lost his brightness, his light,
and now became Satan,
the dark one, the evil one.

Here are the Hebrew words for "perfect" and "iniquity", respectively.

tamiym, taw-meem', Hebrew 8549; from Hebrew 8552 (tamam); entire (literal, figurative or moral); also (as noun) integrity, truth :- without blemish, complete, full, perfect, sincerely (-ity), sound, without spot, undefiled, upright (-ly), whole.

`evel, eh'-vel, Hebrew 5766; or avel, aw'-vel; and (feminine) avlah, av-law'; or owlah, o-law'; or olah, o-law'; from Hebrew 5765 (`aval); (moral) evil :- iniquity, perverseness, unjust (-ly), unrighteousness (-ly), wicked (-ness).

When he was created, Satan was tamiym but he became 'evel.
Here's what caused him to become that way:
Ezekiel 28:16  By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence,
and thou hast sinned:
The NIV reads: "Your great wealth filled you with internal turmoil and you sinned."

Hey, he loved THINGS and MONEY!

The most important thing we must know about Satan
is that as Ezekiel tells us in Chapter 28 verse 12,
he was full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Even though he is evil, he is still, today, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
It will be very easy for him to deceive Christians into believing he is Christ
when he returns to earth in the end times at the sixth trump.

You can (and should) assume that you have
previously been mislead about Satan
and are or might be deceived.

Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name,
saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Unfortunately, many preachers today don't speak of God or His Word the things that are right!

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.
