The prophet Ezekial told us about the fall of Satan in Ezekial 28. It tells us that Lucifer (his name before the fall) was a covering cherub before the throne of God. His job was to reflect the light of God and to create an atmosphere of worship for God. In the midst of his assignment, he began to orchestrate evil thoughts, and the Bible says he fell because of “unrighteous trade”.
The center of every economy is the trading floors. Similar to America’s Wall Street trading floors, every countries’ trading floors orchestrate the trade of currency and assets. Investors go to the trading floor to buy or sell goods.
Similarly, the Kingdom of Heaven also has trading floors. Satan and the fallen angels have been found guilty of unrighteous trading, and have been thrown out of Heaven with the verdict of eternal suffering in Sheol. Unlike you, they do not have a chance at redemption because the blood of Jesus paid the price for humans. Im not sure why, but my guess is that angels were not redeemed because they do not have blood, but rather they have light flowing thru them rather than blood. Tell me your ideas. Why weren’t angels redeemed? Okay, moving on…
Ezekial 28:17 says, “Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor.” With this scripture, we know that Lucifer exchanged his beauty for pride, and wisdom for splendor. He took compliments and began to amass a proud confidence that he could be like God. The light of God which provides insight and discloses the plans of God, Satan chose to exchange for unrighteous attention. He was to reflect the light and plans of God with the stones that adorned his body, so that Heaven’s inhabitants can walk in the plans of God. He had insight of man’s role in the plans of God, and he desired prestige for himself. He wanted to slight God and attempt to dethrone Him. As he traded unrighteously, he took from the supply of others to increase his own opulence. As a result, God ordered him to be thrown out of Heaven.
Genesis 6 tells us about the time of Noah where some of Heaven’s angels fell. It tells us that the angels saw that women were beautiful, they chose to marry some of them, and contaminated the seed of man creating a race of “nephilim”. The fallen angels traded the insight of Heaven for prestige; aside from the authorization of God, and wickedness increased on the Earth. They told things that they were not supposed to tell in exchange for allegiance and to win prestige. Today, Satan and the fallen angels still attempt to contaminate the seed, win souls, and partake of the inheritance of man. Jesus told us that the end times will be like the times of Noah: genetic tampering, increasing wickedness, and favor of the elect. Be vigilant!
Satan was adorned with 9 stones: carnelian, chrysolite, and moonstone, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald (Ezekial 28:13). In E.W. Bullinger’s book, Number in Scripture, it tells us many details about biblical numerology. The number 9 is the number for finality and judgement. The Bible tells us that Lucifer was created perfect, but because of his choices, he was thrown out of Heaven as a portion of his judgement. Ezekial 28:12 says, “You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.”
The priests of God were commanded to adorn themselves with 12 stones: Exodus 28:17-21 says:
You shall set in it four rows of stones. A row of carnelian, chrysolite, and emerald shall be the first row; and the second row a turquoise, a sapphire, and a moonstone; and the third row a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst; and the fourth row a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper; they shall be set in gold filigree. There shall be twelve stones with names corresponding to the names of the sons of Israel; they shall be like signets, each engraved with its name, for the twelve tribes.
You were created to fill the role of ambassador and priest. You are an heir of the eternal Kingdom. 1 Peter 2:4 says, “Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God’s sight, and 5 like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. “ The attributes that distinguish each of the twelve tribes can be found in Jesus, and following him, you contain the attributes as well.
The number 12, is a number that reflects perfection of governmental foundation. E.W. Bullinger said:
“TWELVE is a perfect number, signifying perfection of government, or of governmental perfection. It is found as a multiple in all that has to do with rule. The sun which “rules” the day, and the moon and stars which “govern” the night, do so by their passage through the twelve signs of the Zodiac which completes the great circle of the heavens of 360 (12 x 30) degrees or divisions, and thus govern the year. Twelve is the product of 3 (the perfectly Divine and heavenly number) and 4 (the earthly, the number of what is material and organic). While seven is composed of 3 added to 4, twelve is 3 multiplied by 4, and hence denotes that which can scarcely be explained in words, but which the spiritual perception can at once appreciate.”
From the time of Adam and Eve, Satan has attempted to devour the seed that inherits the Kingdom of Heaven. He and the fallen angels were not created to fulfill governmental assignments. He was created to reflect the image of God in perfection and judgement, but he desires to fulfill the governmental role of man as the heir of Heaven. He is jealous and deficient, immoral and illegal, a thief, murderer, and theft. He does not have all of the necessary ingredients to administer the Kingdom of Heaven and God knew this when He created him. Satan does not have all of the necessities to govern your territory; accordingly, God has assigned you to do it. He attempts to trade unrighteousness for your inheritance, and you are fully equipped to overthrow him and take your inheritance back.
You have been granted back your inheritance in Christ, but that does not automatically mean that you possess it. The land of Canaan was given to Abraham and to his children by an eternal inheritance, but it was not until many years later before they even stepped their foot on it.
Your land has been liberated from the hand of the enemy by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, but you have to take the land like the Israelites physically took the land of Canaan. It might even shock you to know that even after Jesus has liberated your territory, Satan still occupies it because you have not removed him. However, his occupation is illegal. So what you need do is guerilla warfare to expel him and to fully settle in your land. He is an illegal occupant; and unless you fight, he will not give up the territory even though it has been legally liberated from his control. He is a rebel and will always be. So take the name of Jesus and the Sword of the Spirit, praying with all manners of prayer and liberate your land from the hand of the enemy.
Satan continuously fights to steal your joy, your peace, your property, your sanctity. Satan has already been defeated, but he resents giving up control until you take it by force. His occupation is illegal; get him out of your territory. Get him out of the region of Peace in your territory, chase him out of the northern border of Joy in your territory, hoist the banner of victory over the city called Property in your territory; kick him out of your farmlands of Sanctity in the name of Jesus. He has no right whatsoever to steal your joy, peace, property and sanctity. The ground he has is the one you have permitted him to take. Kick him out!
Your greatest tools of spiritual warfare are: (1) Obedience to God’s word, (2) Walking in righteousness, and (3) Repentance. Prayer and intercession are good, but the Bible says, “obedience is better than sacrifice”. Commit to be obedient. Begin reading your Bible regularly (your life instruction manual), so you can know what Yeshua has said, and you can be obedient to His words. For help, check out this video:
