Isaiah 14:12-14– “12 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! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

We need to realize that even before the foundation of the world God knew us, and God loved us. We need to see and understand this. Why? Because people need to see the beauty of Jesus in us, this is what we are here for. God did not put us here so we can just sit and enjoy His creation, although we can and do. You and I are to think eternally, because ultimately, for all eternity we will be with Him heaven, but right now, we have a work to do while we live on this earth. We are in a play on earth that one-day will conclude and there no dress rehearsals. 

My friend, we’re not deity and we will never be deity, but we’re about as close to deity as we can be because we have deity living in us and we are in deity. You see, everything Lucifer wanted in heaven, “I will ascend to heaven to be the most high God!” We have it, because we’re like Christ as we abide in Him.
