Q&A Session for non-Christians 2

28 March 2014, 07:15
Great truths the Bible gives for us to understand the great cosmic conflict that has got humanity involved. This second part is to answer the questions which might be sought by many non-Christians. It is of great privilege that you go through this section and do more of research of your own from the Scriptures.

Q. Was Lucifer perfect before he became Satan?


A.  “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I 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 wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”-Ezekiel 28:14, 15.


 Q.  What caused Lucifer sin, thus becoming Satan the adversary?

A.  “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. 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 the congregation, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High”- Isaiah 14:12, 13.

“…O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire… Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.”-Ezekiel 28:16, 17.


Q.  What was the result of Satan’s sin?


A. “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. and the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”- Revelation 12: 7-9.


Q.  Who is this Michael who fought against Satan?


A. “Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”- Jude 9


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.”- 1 Thessalonians 4:16


And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people…and many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake…”- Daniel 12:1, 2.


Q.  After the war, where did Satan and his angels go?


A. “…woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”- Revelation 12:12


Q. What will happen to Satan and his angels at the end?


A. “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.”- Matthew 25:41


And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”-Revelation 20:10


“...O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire…therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.”- Ezekiel 28:16, 18, 19.
