I had this interesting conundrum today. Or maybe I can call it a plot bunny. Now, this is actually a thought I had beginning to fester some time ago but my mind really took off with it today (I think it had to do with a conversation about the new Fox show Lucifer.). Just remember…I am an avid reader and writer, and I have an overactive imagination.
We all know the Transitive Property of Equality from math, right? That if a=b and b=c, then a=c. According to some theories and translations, Satan was called the morning star before his fall. We also see the morning star being accredited to Jesus. So, using our Transitive Property of Equality, wouldn’t that make Lucifer and Jesus one in the same?
But really…hear me out on this one.
Now, what if when Lucifer Fell from Heaven, it wasn’t just a normal fall (normal of course being relative in the discussion of Angels and Princes of Hell), but God pulled him apart in such a way that everything that had become bad and evil about him was cast out, but the pure and loving half remained? It can be assumed that Lucifer, once God’s most beautiful and staunchest Angel sat on God’s right hand. This just so happens to be the hand that Jesus now sits.
Maybe in a moment of forgiveness or something, God separated the good and the bad in him. That could be one of the reasons that Lucifer hates Jesus so much, because in every way Jesus has what Lucifer does not.
Now that would be a story that I would read. It would take the battle between good and evil inside to a whole new level.
And while on the topic of Lucifer and his Fall from grace, I can’t help but take the passage found in Luke 10:18 and run with an interesting plot bunny that that brings up. In Luke Chapter 10, Jesus is telling his disciples to go out into the towns ahead of him and how to conduct themselves. When they returned in joy, the told Jesus that even the demons submitted to His name. In turn, Jesus responds with “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven” (Luke 10:18)
Satan’s fall was like lightning. Think about that for a moment. The entirety of the world would have been able to see the Fall of what was once the most beautiful and faithful angel. If it appeared like lightning, it would have very well lit up the night sky.
Like….a comet. Or a meteor.
His Fall, we can assume from Biblical clues was before Adam and Eve. And what came before them?
And not just any beasts.
There could have been dinosaurs.
So, what if Lucifer’s fall from Heaven caused a cataclysmic event that wiped out most of the life forms around?
What if Lucifer was the meteor that brought the dinosaurs to extinction?
