Truth Will Out

In John 8:44 Jesus makes an interesting comment “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires……not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him.  When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

Jesus identified the source of lies.  It was the devil who spoke the first lie and ironically this took place in heaven.  He was called Lucifer at the time and was a magnificent and supreme angel.  Indeed Lucifer was a covering cherub which meant he stood next to the throne of God covering it with his wings.  There was no more exalted position for an angel.  However Lucifer was not content with this lofty position.  He sought to be a member of the Godhead.  In reality this was an impossibility.  The Godhead – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit – are uncreated beings.  They are divine entities who have no beginning and no end.  They have always been in existence and will always be in existence.  And furthermore they are the creators of everything and all
