Angels are powerful Celestial Beings that serve God in heaven.It is surprising to hear that an angel has died since they are not like human beings who are just but pilgrims on earth, but It was a different case for an angel named Lucifer.
Lucifer is the personification of evil and goes by many names—Satan, Devil, the Prince of Demons, the Father of Lies. He has been a part of horror story lore for so long that many people think he’s a fictional character, made up to scare children and movie audiences worldwide. In reality, the devil has a story that predates humanity’s creation, and it may surprise many to learn that, before his banishment from heaven, his story had angelic beginnings.
The Bible doesn’t give us an exact timeline of Satan’s origin. Rather, what we know of Satan’s beginnings comes from passages written by the prophets Ezekiel and Isaiah (Ezekiel 28; Isaiah 14). The prophets tell us that Satan was an angel known as the “morning star,” translated as Lucifer. Lucifer was a beautiful and near -perfect angel who walked on God’s holy mountain and was anointed to serve God as a member of the guardian cherubim, among the highest rank of angels in God’s holy host second only to the seraphim (Ezekiel 28:14). That Lucifer was ordained a cherub was no small honor.
Lucifer became so impressed with his beauty, intelligence, power, and position that he began to desire for himself the honor and glory that belonged to God alone. He became so self-absorbed that instead of serving God, he thought he could become God himself and take his place. Lucifer’s arrogance and pride got the best of him. He decided to wage war against God in heaven. However, his efforts to replace God proved futile as Archangel Michael defeated him. As punishment for his disobedience and the grave dishonoring of his angelic post, God cast Lucifer out of heaven to Earth condemning him ultimately to hell.
We all know that the bible describes hell as the second death. When one dies, it becomes the first death then being taken to hell is the second death. So Lucifer being in hell means he is dead and therefore roams around to win more people to hell; the second death.
Since he had been condemned to death he is doing everything possible to have the people God joins him in Hell. He is bitter with Christians and the righteous saints since he want to win them in the kingdom of darkness which is hell.
