The personality of Lucifer is so shrouded in mystery that even those who declare themselves Satanists know little or nothing about this enigmatic being!
Lucifer is not a principle, a state of mind or, phenomenon. Rather, he(a living being) originates from the Divine Realms as an arch angel, a powerful servant of the Godhead! When the lower World of Matter came into existence, he was sent down to help in the development of the region particularly, the nascent human spirits! His task was not to walk about on earth but, standing in the ethereal, he was to guide the volition, thought and intellect of mankind with helping love.
Unfortunately this messenger from on High failed; instead of helping love, he in impatience, introduced the Principle of Temptation! He thus failed! Through his failure, he became heavy, his wings stunted and lost the possibility of ascending to the Light and was estranged from the Luminous Realms through his wrong voluntary decision!
As The Grail Message (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin puts it:
“Lucifer is one who has severed himself from the Light, which is equivalent to having been cast out.
This expulsion was also bound to occur according to the existing Primordial Laws, the irrevocable Holy Will of God the Father! It could not possibly happen otherwise!”
Liking is wounds from the expulsion, he vowed to divert every being within reach from the Light..”If I am going down, this part of Creation and its hosts will have to go down with me.”
That, very briefly, was how Lucifer became the arch enemy of the Light, the anti-Christ, the Serpent and the son of perdition; how he dropped out from the lofty heights and ranks of arch angels and became the malignant Satan, the Devil!
