The only place in the Bible where “Lucifer” as a name for Satan appears is in Isaiah 14. Or is it? A look at the text and the context makes it clear that the prophet was speaking about the king of Babylon and not Satan. However, we should not dismiss this text as something unrelated to us. The reason Isaiah 14 sounds so much like the fall of Satan is because the king of Babylon joined Satan’s rebellion against God. And Christians would do well to remember that Satan continues to entice people to join his rebellion against the Most High God. (Isaiah 14.3-22) October 31, 2021
