Further studies into the records of the courts of heaven will reveal that this was not the full gamut of the Eternal King’s judgments on the fallen angel. For the Just Judge had also decreed the final judgment and destruction of the rebel was to be executed by a man.
2 Peter 2:4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;
Jude 1:6 And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;
Today, we know that the judgment of the great day shall be executed and pronounced by the second man – the Lord Jesus Christ.
It was in tandem with this divine fiat that Deity, at the beginning of the re-creation, created man in His image and likeness…and called him Adam….and committed to him all the reaches of the earth, setting him up as its sovereign…placing him on the throne of the second heaven and Deity said to Adam: “… have dominion…”!
This is the backdrop against which the Book of Genesis opens up the records of the earth, its heavens and its king, man. This is the background that makes clear the reason for Lucifer’s hatred for the king appointed over his former realm; decreed by divine law to execute the final judgment of God against him.
This is the framework that holds the platform which will see man at war against Lucifer in Adam. It is a story writ in the crimson ink of blood – that which gives life to the flesh of Adam…..it epitomizes the principles under-girding the Divine throne: Love, Justice and Righteousness.
Who shall search and discover? Who shall awaken in the brilliance of the Light?
