Satan’s Attempt To Overthrow God is being written because last week’s article contained information that needs clarification; “Katabole” and First Earth Age, taking place before this age, are events not referred to in everyday conversation. Scripture addresses them but extra effort on our part is required to recognize and utilize them to reach our spiritual goals.
Last week’s Created Equal article utilized the Greek Manuscripts to introduce “Katabole”, Satan’s Attempt To Overthrow God, to us; it also showed God ending the First Earth Age because of it:
katabole, kat-ab-ol-ay'; from Greek 2598 (kataballo); a deposition, i.e. founding; figurative conception :- conceive, foundation.
Conception and conceive is illustrative of birth pains being felt by the founding Heaven and Earth Age giving birth a new Heaven and Earth Age, the one in which we now reside.
Satan’s Attempt to Overthrow God, in that age, gave God reason enough to end it; Revelation 12:4 KJV shows Satan successful at taking a third of us from God when he attempted to overthrow Him:
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
Stars, in this verse, symbolize angels (messengers of God) and those messengers are us. Researching “Katabole” shows being (or not being) in the third that followed Satan determining when God brings us forth in this earth age and what is expected of us.
Concluding our point that the Manuscripts show the “Katabole” and Satan’s Attempt To Overthrow God to be one and the same, “Ballo”, its primary verb, shows how violent and intense God became when it happened:
ballo, bal'-lo; a primary verb; to throw (in various applications, more or less violent or intense):- arise, cast (out), × dung, lay, lie, pour, put (up), send, strike, throw (down), thrust.
Isaiah 14:12 KJV gives the reason for God striking down and thrusting away that Heaven and earth age:
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!
Taking a third of us from God is Lucifer (Satan) weakening the nations; it also weakens us. We continue with Isaiah 14:13-14 KJV where God is addressing Satan about his high and mighty thoughts:
