Isaiah 14:9-17 "Hell from beneath is excited about you, To meet you at your coming; It stirs up the dead for you, All the chief ones of the earth; It has raised up from their thrones All the kings of the nations. They all shall speak and say to you: 'Have you also become as weak as we? Have you become like us? Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, And the sound of your stringed instruments; The maggot is spread under you, And worms cover you.' "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.' Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit. "Those who see you will gaze at you, And consider you, saying: 'Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms, Who made the world as a wilderness And destroyed its cities, Who did not open the house of his prisoners?'
Satan is not just a figure of the imagination to invoke
fear in us. He is real. The Bible mentions him several times and gives
him the following names: The evil one, the serpent, the murderer, the
roaring lion, the liar, the dragon, and the devil. You will agree that
they are not very nice names. Satan's role began here on earth when
he caused man to sin for the first time. As a result of this first sin,
sin entered into the human race, and we have death, violence, pain,
and evil which are visible everywhere.
