Lucifer the Cherub

Biblical truths about Lucifer the cherub

Lucifer the Cherub

The Cherubim belong to The Higher Order and are an intellectual movement that holds the throne of the Holy Trinity with respect. It is the leader of all movements. They are always mindful of their own class and those beneath them. 

A careful reading of the Scriptures presents us with an image of the cherubim in total opposition to the traditional image of cute baby cherubs as we know them. 

Indeed, in the Bible, cherubim are mainly described as animals with human features. 

  • Ezekiel 10:15 "Then the cherubim rose upward. These were the living creatures I had seen by the River Kebar."

1. They have 4 wings with men's hands underneath each wing and accompanying wheels (called ophanims).

  • Ezekiel 1:5-7 "And within it was the form of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: They had a human form, but each had four faces and four wings. Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the hooves of a calf, gleaming like polished bronze."

2. They have four faces: that of a man, an eagle, a lion and a calf. The soles of their feet are similar to those of a calf.

  • Ezekiel 1:10 "The form of their faces was that of a man, and each of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, the face of an ox on the left side, and also the face of an eagle."

3. Their body is entirely covered with eyes and they walk straight without ever turning back. Symbolically this means they possess the attributes of YAHWEH: The eyes indicate the mystery of the revelations of the Trinity and represent God who sees all and knows all. The upright walk without ever turning represents the absolute justice and truth of God from which He never turns away. 

  • Ezekiel 10:16 "When the cherubim moved, the wheels moved beside them, and even when they spread their wings to rise from the ground, the wheels did not veer away from their side."

  • Ezekiel 10:5-21 "The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard as far as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when He speaks... The cherubim appeared to have the form of human hands under their wings... Their entire bodies, including their backs, hands, and wings, were full of eyes all around, as were their four wheels... Each of the cherubim had four faces: the first face was that of a cherub, the second that of a man, the third that of a lion, and the fourth that of an eagle..."

The Bible also teaches that the cherubim uphold the throne of YAHWEH and are the official guardians of his throne. In the visions of Ezekiel, the throne of YAHWEH rests above the cherubim. They serve as runners for the heavenly chariot and guard the path to the tree of life.

  • Psalm 80:1 "For the choirmaster. To the tune of “The Lilies of the Covenant.” A Psalm of Asaph. Hear us, O Shepherd of Israel, who leads Joseph like a flock; You who sit enthroned between the cherubim, shine forth"

  • Isaiah 37:16 "“O LORD of Hosts, God of Israel, enthroned above the cherubim, You alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You made the heavens and the earth."

  • Genesis 3:24 "So He drove out the man and stationed cherubim on the east side of the Garden of Eden, along with a whirling sword of flame to guard the way to the tree of life."

  • 2 Samuel 22:11-12 "He mounted a cherub and flew; He soared on the wings of the wind. He made darkness a canopy around Him, a gathering of water and thick clouds."

  • Psalm 18:10-11 "He mounted a cherub and flew; He soared on the wings of the wind. He made darkness His hiding place, and storm clouds a canopy around Him."


The Bible mentions that Lucifer was a cherub.

  • Ezekiel 28:14-15 "You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for I had ordained you. You were on the holy mountain of God; you walked among the fiery stones. From the day you were created you were blameless in your ways—until wickedness was found in you."

We previously mentioned that the cherubim and their ophanim have four faces: a calf, a lion, an eagle and a man. But notice how in Ezekiel 10:14 the face of the calf of the ophanim is replaced by that of a cherub? 

  • Ezekiel 10:13-14 "I heard the wheels being called “the whirling wheels. Each of the cherubim had four faces: the first face was that of a cherub, the second that of a man, the third that of a lion, and the fourth that of an eagle.


According to the BDB Theological Dictionary, the word cherub may come from either the Hebrew word kerubh (winged angel) or a variant of the Assyrian adjective karubu (great or powerful). It may also come from the Assyrian word kiribu or sedu, which is the name of the famous winged bull in Assyria: It is a winged bull, calf or cow with a human face. This would imply that Lucifer's original appearance is essentially animalistic.

Notice how he is always depicted in the image of a horned creature such as a goat, calf or bull. In the Bible, he is depicted as a beast, an ox: 

  • Revelations 14:11 "And the smoke of their torment rises forever and ever. Day and night there is no rest for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”

  • Psalm 106:19-20 "At Horeb they made a calf and worshiped a molten image. They exchanged their Glory for the image of a grass-eating ox."


Lucifer is an ancient Latin name referring to the planet Venus. Lucifer means "light bearer", which describes the time lapse between the morning and evening stars. The central idea is duality, i.e. darkness and light coexisting within the same being.

To this effect, it should be noted that originally in the King James Bible version 1611 Lucifer was originally called "son of the morning".

  • Isaiah 14:12 "“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!" The King James Bible version 1611

Interestingly in more recent versions of the Bible, the name Lucifer has been changed to "Star of the morning, son of the dawn". He also went from "he who weakened the nations" to "you who defeated the nations". 

  • Isaiah 14:12 “How you have fallen from heaven, You star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who defeated the nations!" New American Standard Bible

Is this an honest mistake in translation or a deliberate modification? 

Understand that this kind of change confuses many by eliminating any distinction between Jesus and Lucifer, as Jesus is also called the bright morning star.

  • Revelations 22:16 "“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star.”

Thus, many have rejected the Gospel because they are under the impression that Jesus and Satan/Lucifer are one and the same entity.

People often fail to discern that Lucifer and Satan are two sides of the same coin but there is a subtle distinction between the two; and this is mainly due to mistranslations of the Hebrew and misuse of words. 

Commonly referred to as "angels," celestial entities are divided into orders and ranks. Each order is distinguished by the responsibilities assigned to it.

Spirits: Each element that has movement is controlled by a spirit. As such, there is the spirit of the winds, the spirit of the clouds, the spirit of the sun, the spirit of the moon, etc.

The higher order (the cherubim, the seraphim, the thrones);

The middle order (the dominations, the powers, the authorities);

The lower order (the archangels, the principalities, the angels)


It is a cherub. He belongs to the higher order of celestial entities. This order, which also includes the seraphim and thrones, is the order of the "high priests" because they uphold the throne of YAHWEH. The cherubim class is an intellectual movement.  

His original appearance is in the likeness of a horned beast with human features, thus, he is always represented in the image of a goat, a calf, an ox or a horned bull. 

However, God did not take away his ability to take on another appearance. And so, taking advantage of our love of the divine light, in order to deceive us, he uses this ability to trick us into believing that he is benevolent, truthful, loving and powerful.

  • 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions.

Being created beautiful and very intelligent, he was filled with pride, and began to secretly covet the glory of YAHWEH.

  • Ezekiel 28: 14-15 "You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for I had ordained you. You were on the holy mountain of God; you walked among the fiery stones.

He refused to submit to the order of his Creator, stirred up a rebellion among the heavenly bodies, and a war broke out in the heavens. Lucifer, seeing himself driven out of the high heavenly places, was overcome with jealousy when he saw Adam sitting on a throne of glory. He convinced the serpent to serve as his instrument, then using a mystical possession by devilry, Satan this spirit that dwells in him, managed to awaken in Eve the same desires as Lucifer: domination and autonomy. Eve allowed herself to be seduced and deceived, and then led Adam into deception.

It is important to emphasize the following points;

Lucifer is the first created being who rebelled of his own free will. By virtue of his rebellion, he brought forth Satan: the adversary spirit that opposes everything related to the Most High and the divine essence.

Therefore, Lucifer is the incarnation and personification of Satan. This spirit dwells in him in all its fullness and depth. Although there is a nuance between the two, one cannot speak of Lucifer without mentioning Satan and vice versa.

In The Book of the The Cave of Treasures -  The Revolt of Satan and the Battle in Heaven, it is written: 

And when the prince of the lower order of angels saw what great majesty had been given unto Adam, he was jealous of him from that day, and he did not wish to worship him. And he said unto his hosts, "Ye shall not worship him, and ye shall not praise him with the angels. It is meet that ye should worship me, because I am fire and spirit; and not that I should worship a thing of dust, which hath been fashioned of fine dust." And the Rebel meditating these things would not render obedience to God, and of his own free will he asserted his independence and separated himself from God. But he was swept away out of heaven and fell, and the fall of himself and of all his company from heaven took place on the  Sixth Day, at the second hour of the day. And the apparel of their glorious state was stripped off them. And his name was called "Sâtânâ" because he turned aside [from the right way], and "Shêdâ" because he was cast out, and "Daiwâ" because he lost the apparel of his glory. And behold, from that time until the present day, he and all his hosts have been stripped of their apparel, and they go naked and have horrible faces. And when Sâtânâ was cast out from heaven, Adam was raised up so that he might ascend to Paradise in a chariot of fire. And the angels went before him, singing praises, and the Seraphim ascribed holiness unto him, and the Cherubim ascribed blessing; and amid cries of joy and praises Adam went into [Fol. 6a, col. 1] Paradise. And as soon as Adam entered Paradise he was commanded not to eat of a [certain] tree; his entrance into Paradise took place at the third hour of the Eve of the Sabbath (i.e. on Friday morning).


It is a movement that has the ability to possess. Just as the Holy Spirit can simultaneously dwell in multiple believers, marking them with his seal, so Satan can possess multiple bodies at the same time in collaboration with demons. 

It should be noted that in the Apocalypse of Abraham, a clear distinction is made between ungodliness (the spirit of evil) and Lucifer (the crafty adversary).

Apocalypse d’Abraham chap 23 & 24 

¶ And He said: “This is the human world, this is Adam, and this is their desire upon the earth, this is Eve; but he who is between them representeth ungodliness, their beginning (on the way) to perdition, even Azazel... I saw Adam, and Eve existing with him, and with them the cunning Adversary, and Cain who acted lawlessly through the Adversary, and the slaughtered Abel, (and) the destruction brought and caused upon him through the lawless one.

Thus we are talking about two entities: Lucifer the cherub leader of the rebels and Satan the evil spirit who possessed all rebellious celestial beings. Lucifer, Satan the spirit and all the rest of the rebels were cast out of the holy heavenly places.

  • Revelations 12:7-9 "Then a war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But the dragon was not strong enough, and no longer was any place found in heaven for him and his angels. And the great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. 

  • Luke 10:18 "So He told them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven."

  • Ezekiel 28:13-19 "You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for I had ordained you. You were on the holy mountain of God; you walked among the fiery stones... So I drove you in disgrace from the mountain of God, and I banished you, O guardian cherub... I reduced you to ashes on the ground..."

Note that both Luciferians and Satanists have a very understanding of the nuance between Lucifer and Satan. Therefore, Luciferians in particular do not like to be equated with Satanists.


Do not worship Satan as a creature but rather as an emblem of man's carnal nature. Therefore, they concentrate on sensuality, material possessions, pride, and freedom; experiencing everything their carnal nature has to offer.


For the Luciferians, on the other hand, Lucifer is a spiritual being whom they want to emulate. They say he is the illuminated and awakened one who has chosen individualism rather than idolizing his creator; according to them he rises above mere materiality. The Luciferians consider their objectives to be greater and more spiritual than the Satanists, whom they consider too carnal. Luciferians have a strong presence in the largest institutions and the majority are influential people in high places within society. When you hear about the New World Order, it is the work of the Luciferians.

Although their views are nuanced, both groups have the common ground below:

  • They speak of human beings as gods, having control over the planet.

  • They believe in the duality of the mankind, which they represent by the colors black/white.

  • They are antagonistic towards Christianity because according to them, YAHWEH is oppressive, vindictive, cruel and arbitrary. They claim that Christians submit to a demanding deity who commits spiritual blackmail by threatening to damn the disobedient.

  • They encourage anything that goes against the laws of YAHWEH.

  • They do not subscribe to the concepts of "good" or "evil", and therefore they do not perceive Satan or Lucifer as embodiments of evil.

  • They do not believe in heaven or hell.

May the Holy Spirit guide you in the understanding of this message. 🙏
