    Is Lucifer the Devil and Satan. Why or why not?

    I don't know why we address Lucifer as Satan and the Devil. Is he truly the Devil and Satan. Why or Why not?

    G'day Motirattan,

    Lucifer was the name before the pre-angelic fall.

    Each name reveals a different aspect or even different mode of operation of the same creature.

    For example:
    • Lucifer is the morning star (outshines all others, which may refer to his beauty) or an angel that attempted to overthrow the throne of God.
    • Satan means great dragon, serpent of old, adversary, tempter, wicked one, god of this world and age, prince of the air, and an angel of light .
    • Devil means false accuser or slanderer.
    • Beezlebul means lord of the flies or false god.


    Based on the above names we can not only identify the enemy but also the mode of operation.

    God bless,
    William

      There are some who argue that as Lucifer is mentioned only once in the bible then the reference probably isn't to Satan. Reading through the bible however you'll find out that Jesus tells his disciples that he saw Satan fall from heaven and the passage in the old testament talks of Lucifer's fall from heaven. So obviously Satan [before he rebelled] must have been Lucifer. After he fell from home heaven and lost all that made him beautiful he couldn't keep that name. In any case from then on he was known as God's adversary [or Satan] and has kept that appellation since then.
