WHERE DID SATAN, THE SOWER OF EVIL, COME FROM?-part 1-

THE ORIGIN OF SIN

TO many minds the origin of sin and the reason for its existence are a source of great perplexity. They see the work of evil, with its terrible results of woe and desolation, and they question how all this can exist under the sovereignty of One who is infinite in wisdom, in power, and in love.  It is impossible to explain the origin of sin so as to give a reason for its existence. Yet enough may be understood concerning both the origin and the final disposition of sin to make fully manifest the justice and benevolence of God in all His dealings with evil.  Sin is an intruder, for whose presence no reason can be given.  Could excuse for it be found, or cause be shown for its existence, it would cease to be sin.  Our only definition of sin is that given in the Word of God; it is the transgression of the law”.

GOD’S LOVE VERSUS PRIDE

THE law of love being the foundation of the government of God, the happiness of all created being depended upon their perfect accord with its great principles of righteousness. God desires from all His creatures the service of love-homage that springs from an intelligent appreciation of His character.  He takes no pleasure in a force allegiance and to all He grants freedom of will, that they may render Him voluntary service.  But there was one that chose to pervert this freedom.  Sin originated with him who, next to Christ, had been most honored of God and who stood highest in power and glory among the inhabitants of heaven.  Before his fall, Lucifer was first of the covering cherubs, holy and undefiled. See Ezekiel 28:12-15.

Lucifer might have remained in favor with God, beloved and honored by all the angelic host, exercising his noble powers to bless others and to glorify his Maker.  But, says the prophet, Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness” (Ezekiel 28:17).  Little by little, Lucifer came to indulge a desire for self-exaltation. “Thou hast said,…I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation…I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High” (Isaiah 14:13-14). Instead of seeking to make God supreme in the affections and allegiance of His creatures, it was Lucifer’s endeavor to win their service and homage to himself. And coveting the honor which the infinite Father had bestowed upon His Son, this prince of angels aspired to power which it was the prerogative of Christ alone to wield.

The Son of God was the acknowledged Sovereign of heaven, one in power an authority with the Father.  I all the councils of God, Christ was a participant, while Lucifer was not permitted thus to enter into the divine purposes. “Why”, questions this mighty angel, “should Christ have the supremacy? Why He is thus honored above Lucifer?
