Scripture: Isaiah 14:12,13a
Isaiah 14:12, 13a says, “How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: I will ascend into heaven.” I suppose what’s amazing about this quote is that he actually did it. He took the principle of ascension and elevated himself to a position that demanded the judgment of God. And down he came! I suppose we can say from this passage, whenever we choose ascension of our will over God’s will, a fall is guaranteed. What should appropriately fall on judges promoting homosexuality? Why is it some people get a lifetime of acting before they are cut down to the ground? So far this principle of ascension has created as many questions as it has answers. There’s one thing we know for sure, when it comes to the principle of ascension, satan is the author of using it against the will of God. How much of God’s response to Babel or Sodom can we ask in demanding covenant justice?
