Ezekiel 28:12-15 KJV  Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.  Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.  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.
I didn’t want to leave you hanging as to the fall of Lucifer according to the Anointed Cherub Theory. This interpretation of scripture has Lucifer in the Garden of Eden on assignment by God. Lucifer was anointed to perfectly protect and defend God’s garden, to prepare the perfect atmosphere for the man and his wife to know God as well as each other. And then in the process, Lucifer sees something in man that he has seen only in God, i.e., unrestricted authority. God said:
Genesis 1:26 KJV  …Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Mankind had dominion, which means unrestricted authority, over all the earth. Lucifer saw this and he lusted after it. The iniquity, which was discovered in him, is believed to be his delusional desire to use man’s authority to elevate himself to god-like status.
Isaiah 14:13-14 KJV  For thou hast said in thine heart (meditation), 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.
The “I will” statements by Lucifer were the meditation of his heart that hatched a plan to deceive mankind, hold them as hostage and bring an assault on heaven with the authority of mankind. Please pay careful attention to the principles Satan used in a perverted way to try to overthrow God. First meditation planted the desire firmly in his heart; he then proceeded to confess from the abundance of his heart the wicked desires. Lastly, he sought agreement from mankind, “God doth know…ye shall be as gods…”
Satan knows that God’s kingdom system works; it just doesn’t work for him. The key ingredient is the Word of God. Our lives are ordained for success and the Word of God is the seed of that success. When we put the word of the kingdom to work through meditation, confession and agreement, success is guaranteed.
