“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” ~ Revelation 22: 16.
Lucifer was not the most exalted of the angels, but rather Prince of those lower three ranks of angels who were responsible for the cosmos. He was properly the “Prince of This World,” commissioned to work out his good in original Creation, particularly of man in “the gaiety of love.” When he sinned, he rejected the position to which he was assigned. Lucifer never performed the beneficent ministry for which he was destined.
Lucifer is the son of the morning, the morning star, the bearer of light, the facilitator and the schemer, the one which fell from the grace of God and rebelled against the true Nature of man. Lucifer represents the individual intellect and will which rebels against the domination of Nature and attempts to maintain itself contrary to natural impulse. Lucifer, in the form of Venus (the representation of beauty itself), is the morning star spoken of in Revelation, which is to be given to those who overcome the world.
In short, Lucifer is the ego who blinds us from truth, who designs poor and imperfect love, who pretends to know peace by war, and the one who speaks to us through the obsessive desires and uncontrolled passions introduced in us by the physical senses–i.e., the ego of man lost in the false beauty and allure of the world of form, of that which is deceiving to man’s true nature,
Many people mistakenly think that Lucifer is Satan and vice versa, but the facts are that is simply not true. This misinformation, conspiracies and lies have been propagated to the people through many books and movies that most people equate Lucifer with Satan or evil. But in fact Lucifer represents the dormant illumination, the fallen angel hidden in our DNA, the possibility for ascension again–he once fell from the grace of God, but through true awakening he may ascend again.
So we may say Lucifer is our chance to discover a truer love, a more profound intelligence, a more divine understanding of the nature of the whole of Creation again.
