Overthrown Angel

Isaiah 14:11-15

11 All your pomp has been brought down to the grave,
    along with the noise of your harps;
maggots are spread out beneath you
    and worms cover you.

12 How you have fallen from heaven,
    morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
    you who once laid low the nations!
13 You said in your heart,
    “I will ascend to the heavens;
I will raise my throne
    above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
    on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon.[a]
14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
    I will make myself like the Most High.”
15 But you are brought down to the realm of the dead,
    to the depths of the pit.


Overthrown, he has turned his eyes to the sky, at a loss, not knowing how it all happened. Just a short time ago he was within the heavenly hierarchy, but now, outcast, ha has to oppose them, playing the part of the earthly tempter and the lord of the evil.

The overthrown angel is one of God’s creations. Trying to grasp his role in each historical period, we drive to the conclusion that it’s all the will of God.

Like death, evil is a relative notion. Cosmic order is the basis of creation.
