God created a beloved and magnificent being to serve Him at His very throne. The cherub’s name was Lucifer. God gave him everything, and every quality that Lucifer possessed, but it was not enough. Lucifer rebelled again God in an attempt to become God himself. He failed but he took 1/3 of the angels with him. Lucifer became God’s adversary (Satan) and the rebellious angels became demons. Rather than dealing with Satan’s rebellion immediately by casting him into a spiritual prison, God took this painful negative event and used Satan to complete His plan of good character development. He has allowed Satan to be an agent of resistance for all humanity, and for the Children, He has called throughout the ages.
