“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall,” (Proverbs16:18)
By: Sam Waddell
ISAIAH 14:12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.
COMMENTS: Isaiah compares the PROUD King of Babylon to the FALLEN ANGEL Lucifer. In these verses is the description of Lucifer’s ORIGINAL SIN of PRIDE. 5 times Lucifer says ” I will ” 1. Ascend into heaven, 2. will exalt my throne above the stars of God. 3 Sit on the mount of the congregation, where GOD sits. 4 will ascend above the heights of the clouds. 5 Be like the Most High GOD. Yet HELL is prepared for him and all who follow His ways. TODAY, we see our society in full proud rebellion against GOD. People demand sexual perversion, men with men, women with women, and even pedophilia. They now demand to change their, GOD given, sex. Now we might think of these with mercy because they are deceived by Lucifer the original proud rebel. But we see the devil destroying many lives thru his lies. Many destroy themselves thru suicide and drugs and sexual diseases and other sins. The END OF SIN IS ALWAYS DEATH and this Proud rebellion, we see, will come to an end, it is written in the book of Revelation and 2 Thessalonians, with the Final beast, anti-christ, that JESUS WILL DESTROY WITH THE BREATH OF HIS MOUTH AND THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING, as predicted in Scripture. So now what can be done? ONLY PRAYER AND EVANGELISM. We must preach the GOSPEL of CHRIST to the Lost and give them every opportunity to REPENT, RECEIVE CHRIST and FOLLOW HIM. This is lost mankind’s only hope and we who know CHRIST must share it.
