WHAT SATAN WANTED?
I had this thought while watching Apocalypse III: Tribulation. I am glad people want to make movies to inform or remind others of thing in the Bible. It would be nice if the movies were done with more truth and wisdom. In this movie, not only does it have the false pre-tribulation rapture doctrine but it has Satan explaining how his greatest desire is to get as many souls into the lake of fire, just so God cannot have them. It was like God and Satan were playing poker for souls. I couldn’t take any more silliness and thought that I may be able to add some clarity that I have found in the Bible that I don’t usually hear preached about. Now I know in our world we do not throw away babies, just because they know almost nothing and cannot even protect themselves. In their innocency, we love them even more fervently. Yet, Satan is not depraved because he does not understand. He is not unknowingly warped of no fault of is own like a mental illness. Nor, did he start down this road because he wanted to end up in some lake of torture with souls. He had much greater designs. I will try to summarize it in short order. You will have to go to the links to see where the facts I used come from in scripture.
Satan seals up the sum full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. He is wiser than Daniel. A super being would live forever based upon God’s Eternal life itself. He wanted to be like God, making his own decision without being subject to any authority; not even to YHVH Elohim the Creator. Lucifer (Hebrew Heylel) is the first being with Saul Alinsky type ideology, to whom Saul Alinsky gives kudos for being the first rebel and inspiration. How could a creature get want Satan wanted? The only way since life itself was based upon God was to disobey. The Big question is about the nature of God. What would he do? He created free will. Now if he kills Satan, out goes that God of love thing in the minds of some other creatures He that fears is not made perfect in love. That is why Yeshua (Jesus) says eternal life is all about Knowing God the Father and Yeshua (Jesus) Himself. He also said that the reason he was sent was to destroy the works of Satan the devil. So Satan thought he could get away with it because of the love of God. How could he become the God of fear, death and destruction?
A second and great question is how do you create creatures with free will that are guaranteed never to repeat Satan’s rebellion forever? Scripture asks, What do you imagine against YHVH? He will make a complete end; affliction shall not rise up a second time. Now when you are God, you can make any choices you want. You could create worlds, destroy worlds as they do good or do bad. He showed this to some degree with the old heavens and earth, the heavens and earth now and the flood of Noah.
What YHVH God did is amazingly wonderful and stunning. Via a person from his own substance, God the Father had created the universe. All things are of God and by Christ. Jesus said he came forth from the bosom of the father. So the father and pre-existent Son said, Let us make man in our image (imitate us) and after our likeness (have to deal with similar things as us) Thus like God showed this Adam and eve would later do the same, Eve would come from Adam’s bosom, make children in their image and after their likeness. God explained it not to any creatures until it was fully explained in Christ. Like God, man has had to lean to deal with rebellion, wars, love, hate and children who disobeyed and even hates them. We also learn what family is all about. We are the only creatures that he has chosen to do so. God is in effect reproducing himself. The only person guaranteed not to violate the nature of God, is of course himself.
