Hi Guys Im writing a kids book on history.

Im new to Christianity and Biblical study and am wanting more info on the Lucifer and the Fallen Angels.

Does anyone believe that lucifer was once part of the angels that defended Gods throne?

I understand that there are four now? did lucifer make the Fifth? 

Thanks everyone:)

Lucifer was one of the three divisional leaders. One group was the warriors/soldiers. One group was the messenger angels. One group was the ambassadors, made to represent God(Lucifer led this group.).
As far as defending God's throne, that defense was due to subversion from Lucifer... He wasn't born a warrior so using subtlety and beauty, Lucifer tried get his way over God's way. God did not approve of this and kicked the subverter out of his home in heaven. (Jesus was accused of being a subverter by those jealous of Him - Luke 23:2)
I'm not saying Lucifer can't fight, I'm saying was Absalom going to take the throne by defeating King David's mighty men? Lucifer is far stronger acting in his created strengths. There is more to say... but I've said enough right now.

Thanks Brian!!

You're welcome.  I'm glad it helped.

Basically, God planned out all of time before He created time.  (There's something to wrap your head around.)  If we say in the first day, God creates light and then in the same day God separates light from darkness.  Yet in the fourth day, God makes all the stars, then our first day defaults to angels, the light separated from darkness to a major division of some sort.  But one might say, what about time?  Which makes no sense, because Adam didn't even exist until the sixth day, God rested on the seventh day, therefore the first week was God's length of a day, not a man's length of a day.  (Again, something else to wrap your head around.)  If Satan lead the division he did and then led that third against God, then God would have already planned that a new group of ambassadors was needed to represent him to the very people He created.

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.  --  2nd Cor 5vs20

And this, in itself, if we can grasp it, is like... woah.  How, what, huh???  But that is one of many wild things God did.  And we, if we know God, live for God, are we really to represent God to men?  To replace angels?  We, full of imperfection, impressively weak... to be ambassadors of Him? 

Hey Baden, welcome to CCAS, and to Christianity!

The devil is referred to as a serpent, dragon, and a fallen cherub (which is a 4 faced angel: man, eagle, ox, and lion, with skin like hot burning coals).

All of these descriptions are from scripture.

Hope that helps!

Keep drawing!
