Let me explain. Here we have the situation : The universe was just created along with the angels, etc. Lucifer among them. Everyday we make choices in our lives. Just like us , Satan made a choice. He chose to defy God - BIG MISTAKE! Although all of us defy Him as well, it is a little harder for us since we cannot see God directly. We mostly see the effects of His intervention. But Lucifer could see God. And yet he still chose to defy Him. I know if God was sitting on His throne in front of me and I could feel and see his infinite power, there would be no way that I will EVER deviate from His path. Satan is smart in another category though : deception. And this becomes more and more evident as I read through these forums. I am praying for all of you.
