2:30 And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority.” They said, “Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?” Allah said, “Indeed, I know that which you do not know.”
The story of Genesis in both the Bible and Quran is a mysterious wonder. Part of why so many people are becoming satanists today is because there have been some very sly teachers who have interpreted the messages about Lucifer as being Good for humanity, and the true lord of this world.
From all I know from my religious studies, I am finally absolutely convinced that God did NOT create Satan to be evil and shed bloodshed to watch us die and in pain. God is not sitting back with a giant bag of popcorn enjoying the show. Unfortunately this is the major argument satanists have today and believe God is evil and Satan is the true good one and savior to mankind’s “darkness” under God.
I am now starting to see things clearly especially with things happening the way they are in the world. Part of the falsehoods going on about Satan is because of the misinterpretation of how Satan was created. The Old Testament Torah/Bible left out a significant part about Lucifer NOT respecting humans, in the beginning.
You see many people who claim to be high level religious (catholic masons) actually are part of the illuminati because they believe Satan was the savior of humanity, bringing forth wisdom and knowing good from evil. But the Quran shows the unedited version of Satan’s hate for humans. I will never forget when someone once said to me that Satanists actually have a better grasp of the truer meaning of the Bible.
What he meant, was he is following the twisting of the Bible by some people serving Satan.
And when you put it together, it starts to make sense…I will now combine both the Quran and the Bible interpretation to bring the truth to the story by fitting all the puzzle pieces together.
Lucifer/Iblis was a being created before humans. He was standing in line with the angels as God showed them the newest creation, humans. The angels bowed in respect and friendship to the first prototype of human-Adam, vowing to be of service to them for all eternity. Lucifer/Iblis did not agree with the other angels. He was haughty and made of fire, while humans were this new creation made of the element of earth (carbon).
Fire is seen as exciting, aggressive, brilliant, strong, radiant, and flickering fast movement. Earth, elementally is grounded, slower, simple, sturdy, fruitful, and hard working. Satan/Iblis did not like this new creation that seemed so “small time” compared to him. He mocked and scoffed at us from a distance when Adam was raised as a soul into the Garden of Eden allowing his hate to grow deeper through time.
When the men gathered together to write the divine story of how evil and good came to be, they decided to use the snake as a symbolism for an animal that followed Satan’s orders. For some reason cold blooded reptilians were the ultimate symbol of manipulation and evil for humans, and still remains today. If you know anything about the reptilian alien race, this is where it comes from, I believe.
The snake is not known in the Quran since the Quran tries to be more direct 600 years later after Jesus gave the messages to the disciples to form the New Testament, to somewhat correct the Old. In the Quran, the “snake” is Satan who whispered to Eve that if she ate from a particular tree (not following God’s orders) she would be like an angel, or immortal.
The Bible, if twisted in interpretation can show Satan as a helper to Adam to allow his eyes to be opened of wisdom. Hence why many people call Lucifer the LightBearer. To them, he brought Light or Knowledge to humans. They see or have been manipulated to see this entity as the Light for people to be wise and know things that God was trying to keep hidden from us. This echoes the greek myth of the fire given to humans by Prometheus. http://www.prometheas.org/mythology.html
But the Quran shows that God is no tyrant, and there was a reason he did not want Adam and Eve to take from the tree. God was trying to keep us in the state of pure eternal bliss consciously because of His love for us. There was no hiding from Adam, a divine power. God was only trying to preserve our purity and morality that we were born into. When Adam and Eve finally took from the tree, the forbidden fruit, they were brought down to a more physical conscious level.
In the Bible’s sense, their eyes were open and sex was a big temptation from the devil, making Adam and Eve see their nakedness and know lust and pleasure. Knowing good from bad, and being wise gives you full knowledge, but with pleasure there is pain as well, in a physically sensuous world. In the Quran sense, it was more about the devil tempting us into becoming angels or immortals without regards for His first commands not to go near a special tree and the devil causing us to go down into a mental physical state from the spiritually pure one.
The idea to see the devil as a helper or friend of humanity is completely misinterpreted and twisted by those who wish to serve him. But as we know the angels wanted to know if the devil would shed bloodshed and chaos, while they spread harmony and joy from God to the humans. God knew what could possibly happen with our free will given. Would humans triumph against the devil? I believe that is what God meant when he said in the Quran to the angels, ” I know something you do not.”
There is something special about humans that allowed God to keep Iblis/Lucifer as an entity that we now call the title, the Devil or Satan. I don’t see God angry with us, but with knowing Adam and Eve have the predestined need to KNOW things, and to follow their hidden desires, this caused God to keep Lucifer/Iblis around to see who ELSE would follow him. It’s a way to test the true of heart from the easily corruptible ones. There must be a glorious faith in humanity that God has to allow us the ability to make the choice to defeat the Satan or to follow. We have had so many messengers, books inspired, angels, and spiritual teachers warning us about this temptation.
So therefore, as we see above when putting the Bible and the Quran together we see a very loving and TRUSTING Lord of all Worlds. He created us to be exceptional beings with the free will to decide our own fates. He was trying to protect us from falling from a blissful state, not keeping knowledge from us. Satan was no friend to humans, and till the end he remains an adversary to God to show how many he can corrupt away from Him. Hell is a place for those that made a choice to follow the devil because that is where he is going, and that is where he will lead others to consciously in the end when they follow their dark desires.
If you have been lead to follow this twisting of the intention of God, it is never too late to start to see Him as a loving Father who has faith in us as a species. Those with true faith will always SEE Him and find ways to become what we really are-pure beings capable of immense longevity and goodness in the universe.
