 Re:

Yes, I forgot, I purchased and read this book a few months ago. I have been reading quite a bit of Pink this past year , quite inspiring and helpful really, thank God.

I think that the "mysterious" things/beings in the unseen world are quite difficult for us to pin down to a total accuracy, when I came across that point in Pink's book, I specifically remember "raising my eyebrows" a bit since I have forever long reckoned Lucifer as Satan.

Whether or not Lucifer=Satan, bibilically, the descriptions of Lucifer alone help my spiritual understanding a great deal, of Evil, and of the parallel sin nature in myself.

Knowing our GOD is greater than all is comforting enough for me. But I must say, I do appreciate the serious attitude of bible students who want to explore deeper into all that contains in this precious Book.

Thank you Warriorofgod.

 Re:

Do you think it talks about satan today or do you go with the literal understanding of the text or do you got with the symbolical understanding of the text?

Even though it may not reference Satan directly, do you think it is still ok to say that it describes him? Let know your thoughts.

Reply to warriorofgod
Nebuchadnezzar was called Lucifer, this name sometimes mistakenly associated with Satan.

 Re:

I tend to agree with Eddie. To avoid letting satan to turn this into a "controversial" debate, I'd rather refrain from getting further into this.

The Lord in Scripture said for us to have a sound mind, (not necessary an open mind), and indeed the soundness of our minds can only come from diligence in searching Scriptures comparing Scriptures to Scriptures.

I also think that overall,most Christians really know all too little about satan and of all his calculating evil ways,in fact,most Christians I met don't seem to take satan seriously at all. Study on, brother.

 Re:

warrior, maybe you are right! Sometimes I stick my foot in my mouth.

I just dont know about it.

Could be Lucifer is Nebuchadnezzar?

I read it about 5 times.
Appears you may be right.


Interesting!

 Re:

Another possibility is that in vs 12 Lucifer and nebuchadnezzar are being paralleled?

 Re:

Dear friends,


I think there is in a sense a focal point in scripture in which the rays of revelation meet.


Christ Jesus, His life, His teachings, His Gospel and that of His Apostles are the prism in which the rays of revelation can be diffused into thier individual hues and by which they can be untited into most brilliant light.



In this case, it seems to me that the hosts of darkness had been so much hidden from view, as darkness would prefer it, but that, when the Army of Heaven, or rather, its Commander, decided to put the battle in full array, that is, that the Word of God was made flesh and pitched His tent among us, that this was enough to flush the hordes of darkness out into light of day.


And so their captain challenged ours and said to Him, speaking of all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory


"All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me."


But his assult was repulsed and now his army was exposed.



[i]...for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.[/i]
