While Ruth was inspecting cluster of Mushroom on a decaying wood near the River Bank of Ubu, She asked Obi, ‘what’s the cause of tribulation?’
The foundation of human tribulation is lie. All this started due to Lucifer’s rebellion and dethronement. The LORD God created Lucifer with perfection of beauty, honour, wisdom and brightness.
He was the anointed Cherub: Son of the morning. He walks up and down in the midst of the stones of fire while he was given charge over the earth and was a covering in the holy mountain of God. His heart was lifted up because of his perfect and glorious beauty.
He corrupted his wisdom which was perfect in everything from the day he was created. He resolved to be unfaithful, to covet, to lie in glory, to exalt his throne above the stars of God. To sit upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north, to ascend above the heights of the clouds and to be like the Highest.
He was unrighteous and practiced lawlessness. He became profane in the mountain of God because he defiled his sanctuaries by the multitude of the iniquities of his merchandise that filled him with violence. This rebellion was a great evil before God. (See Isaiah 14 & Ezekiel 28.)
The Scripture noted, ‘And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels. And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan. Which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.’ (Revelation 12:7-9.)———————To be continued.
