WHERE DID SATAN'S EVIL NATURE COME FROM ?

Blog:

In Ephesians 3:9 we find that it was God " who created all things by Jesus Christ." God creates. And there is always a great purpose behind anything God creates. He does'nt create in confusion or disarray, because " God is not the author of confusion" (Corinthians 14:33). But, you may reason, did'nt God create the archangel Lucifer, who became Satan the devil ? How did Satan get to be the way he is if God is the one who created him ? Where did his evil nature come from ? Notice Ezekiel 28:14-15: " Thou [Lucifer] art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I [God] have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wastPERFECT in thy ways from the day that thou wast created......." Two things to notice: Lucifer was created by God, and he was created perfect. Lucifer had great knowledge, understanding and wisdom. He was the greatest being God could create by fiat. The rest of verse 15 continues," till INQUITY [OR LAWLESSNESS] was found in thee." So this great being ~ the greatest being God could possibly create by fiat ~ who was taught at the very throne of God, SINNED AND REBELLED against God. How could that have happened ? God certainly did'nt create a evil devil. He created a perfect, beautiful archangel ~ Lucifer. Isaiah asked the same question. " HOW ART THOU FALLEN from heaven, O LUCIFER, son of the morning ! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations !" (Isaiah 14:12). God revealed the answer in the next two verses: " For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH " (verses 13-14). Lucifer allows his beauty to fill him with vanity. It wasn't enough that God placed him on the throne of this Earth to administer the government of God. He looked on what God had with envy ~ for God ruled the ENTIRE UNIVERSE. Lucifer thought he could eventually ascend up into the heavens and forcefully remove God from His throne ! And so we see how Lucifer acquired this evil, sinful nature. He acquired it through FALSE REASONING , which led to rebellion. He falsely reasoned that he was just as good, if not better, than God who created him. Ezekiel 28:17 says" Thine heart was lifted up BECAUSE OF THY BEAUTY, thou hast CORRUPTED thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness......." This perfect, beautiful being, who was full of great wisdom and knowledge, became corrupted because of FALSE REASONING. He allowed the wisdom and knowledge God had given him fill him with vanity.He then worked to decieve those angels he ruled over on this Earth. He led one third of the angels into rebellion against God and His laws (II Peter 2:4).

                               GOD CREATES MAN

So Satan acquired his evil, sinful nature by false reasoning
. How then did man acquire his evil nature ? On the sixth day of the creation week, God created man. We were created in the very likeness of God, potentially to be created in the image, or character, of God through conversion (Genesis 1:26). That alone reveals that we weren't created with a evil nature, because God does not have a evil nature. Then verse 28 it says," God blessed them." God blessed Adam and Eve. He certainly didn't bless them by placing an evil, satanic nature in them. Futhermore, verse 31 says," And God saw EVERY THING [including man] that he had made, and behold, it was VERY GOOD. On the seventh day, the Sabbath, God rested from all that He had created. He began to teach Adam about His way of Life ~ His divine laws. In Genesis 2:19, God brought all the animals He created before Adam. He instructed Adam to name all the animals ~ which Adam did willingly and obediently.
                             " Absolutely NO REBELLION is indicated here. We find, instead, the response that Adam gave names to all cattle, to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field. This incident reveals Adam's attitude and nature as he was created, PRIOR TO his temptation by Satan (which is recorded in chapter 3). Notice carefully. Absolutely NOTHING in the account of this pre~temptation incident indicates in Adam the presence of an evil, hostile, rebellious attitude or nature. It does not reflect a heart (Mind) that is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, as human nature is described (Jeremiah 17:9), nor a carnal mind that is enmity (hostile) against God and which ' is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be' (Romans 8:7)." 

                              DUALITY IN CREATION

These early verses in Genesis reveal that Adam and Eve were not created with an evil nature. They were not created in a state of sinfulness. At the same time, however, Adam and Eve were INCOMPLETE. Their creation was not finished. " Nor, on the other hand, does it [the account in Genesis] reveal a nature filled with the Spirit of God." The Bible reveals that man was created perfect, without an evil nature. But that perfect creation was also incomplete spiritually. Man was incomplete because he needed God's Spirit. As the case with most everything God creates, He creates in dual stages. The creation of mn was dual. Man's incomplete creation could have been incomplete through the tree of Life, which God freely offered to Adam (Genesis 2:9). But lets frist understand the purpose God had in creating man. In Genesis 1:26, God said man was created in His own image and likeness. God created us to be like Him ! "[T]o carry out the purpose of God in the inhabitants of the earth, to accomplish the grand and awesome PURPOSE throughout the entire universe that could have been theirs [Lucifer's and the angels'], GOD IS REPRODUCING HIMSELF THROUGH HUMAN BEINGS !" (ibid). That was the purpose why God created man ~ He was reproducing Himself ! Because of the awesome potential of man, God created in us a human spirit ~ mind power to think and reason like God.
