Today’s question is:

The turning of Lucifer ( God’s angel) into the devil

This is a great question and I will be brief because they are readily researchable. First, how or when did God turn Lucifer into the devil? Very simple; in Ezekiel chapter 28, we get a clue. The Lord initially spoke to Ezekiel concerning the prince of Tyrus; this is the man or woman working the kingdom on the ground.

But in verse 12 Ezekiel addresses the king of Tyrus; this is diety that the man reports to. An example to help our visual is that your king, president, or ruler goes to a secret bunker or high mountain to meet with the spiritual deity that he or she serves on your behalf.

Just as Moses went to the high mountain to meet with the God of Israel, rulers, even today, go to high places to meet with their spiritual liaison. Think of the scripture principalities and spiritual wickedness in high places.

When Satan Was Tossed Out

We conclude that the king of Tyrus is Lucifer because he was in Eden, the garden of God, and was perfect until iniquity was found in him. Thus he was cast out as profane because of his lifted up heart. His wisdom corrupted him.

He did not leave without influencing deceptively one-third of the stars or angels in Heaven, stated in Revelation 12 and verse 4. This led to the war in heaven where Lucifer was thrown out by Michael and his angels. All his names were given to us, Revelation 9:

“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.”

He was cast to the earth troubling and deceiving the sons of Adam as soon as he was born. This is when he took on the titles serpent, devil, and satan. Devil is really a deceiver, satan means adversary; he no longer brought wisdom and knowledge as a light-bearer, which is what the name Lucifer meant.

Therefore, after his rebellion, he became known as the devil because he deceived the stars in heaven to follow him. He is also deceiving the sons of Adam. He will pay for his crimes and all who follow him, consciously or unconsciously.

I pray this has been edifying in the name of the Son of God.
