SUNSET FROM MY WINDOW

This shot was long anticipated by my wife. We have been experiencing deluges of welcomed summer rain. It’s been overcast for a while now and, just a few moments ago, there was a short break in the cloud-base and she snuck-in there and grabbed this cool shot, and not a moment too soon because, just a moment later, it closed up again for the night. PS. that tiny speck at the bottom left of the picture is called, Lucifer, (satan)

  1. WHY IS THAT STAR CALLED LUCIFER?
    The word Lucifer was also used in Latin to mean the “morningstar”, the planet Venus, and this word was used in the Latin version of Isaiah 14, where the Hebrew version was speaking to a king of Babylonia. The reason people came to think this was a name of Satan has been argued about for many years.
    My personal take is this, God created a Devil. The book of Genesis records Satan (which means ‘accuser’) in the guise of a serpent orchestrating this tragedy. But this raises an important question: Why would God create a ‘bad’ devil (which means ‘adversary’) to corrupt His good creation?

    Lucifer –
    The fact is the Bible records that God actually created a powerful, intelligent, and beautiful angelic being (the chief among all angels) called Lucifer (meaning ‘Shining One’) – and that he was very good. But Lucifer also had a will, as do we, which he could freely choose between. A passage in Isaiah 14 records the choice before him.

    How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn!
    You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!
    You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the North.
    I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most-High.” (GOD) Isaiah 14:12-14
