The two Angels beckoned unto the Disciples while looking up on the mountain where Jesus ascended before their eyes. "Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
This is just a tip of the iceberg. I hope what The Apostle Peter and Paul said of his imminent return gives another insights of his earthly returns.Brethren Christ comes.Keep looking up for the trumpet is at hand.Be at alert.

Jesus Ascension

He is coming Again.Be prepared.

Lucifer- From my literature studies part two

On a starr'd night night Prince Lucifer uprose
          Tired of his dark dominion swung the fiend
          Above the rolling ball in cloud part screen'd,
Where sinners hugg'd their  spectre of reprose.
Poor prey to his lot fit of pride were those.
          And now upon his western wing he learn'd,
          Now his huge bulk o'er Afric's sands careen'd,
Now the black planet shadow'd Arctic snows.
Soaring through wider zones that prick'd his scars
          With memory of the old revolt from Awe,
He reach'd a middle height,and at the stars,
Which are the brain of heaven, he look'd, and sank.
Around the ancient track march'd,rank on rank,
          The army of unalterable law

This is a didactic  and a sonnet poem.It pinned down the point of  Lucifer's fall.It employed Biblical allusions.It is Miltonic in nature by virtue of its Rhyming Scheme.
The writer George Meredith wrote this poem to reflect on the story of the Fall of the Angels as told in the Milton's " Paradise Lost".

The devil is the Lucifer.The writer describe him as a prince, a kind of biblical allusions. The two were taken from the bible.Let's consider them from the bible;
"How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations! Isaiah 14:12 NASB
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!Isaiah 14:12 KJV

The devil has been called a prince also in the bible.Read it here in;
John 14: 30
Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

The truth here is that, the devil is a fiend meaning a wicked evil  spirit.I have a point to say here,while God become more compassionate,graceful,long-suffering and merciful towards us the devil  has repented himself from persecuting mankind but to manipulate and with subtle has cornered most  men away from God.The devil is the prince of this world.He tempted Jesus and at the point of crucifixion the angels of God ministered unto Christ.

Devil means a foe or an enemy of God.Lucifer from the Bible ,an archangel  and possibly son of the morning star. Satan implies and adversary of God.The minus of  God is the plus of the devil but the plus of God is the sorrow of the devil.If you have God it is the devil's sorrow.God through Christ in your life is the chief sorrow of the devil.

 There is a victory for me and you and this victory is only claim through Christ.If you read the  poem's line four you will understand there that sinners celebrate the devil openly.The writer was saying that "Where sinners hugg'd their spectre of reprose".Praising the devil.However if you come to God today through Jesus you will no longer praise the devil but God, your creator.Jesus has destroyed the work of the devil.

God loves you than your lovers.The best to love, is God, the creator of your lovers.The best the devil will ask you to love are your lovers not God.He rebelled against and has gathered lots and lots  among the sons  of men in rebellion against God.

The  devil is bound and out of no way he cannot get into heaven.The God who has banished him from heaven will surely destroy him in the lakes of fire at the end of the ages.Come to Jesus today.
