Lucifer The Fallen by Lord-Kiyo Lucifer The Fallen by Lord-Kiyo
Your probably thinking, "Hey this does not look like Kiyo's normal work!" Well this is what I get when I put some time into something, like I said, I don't show my true talent often.

Anyway I did this for God's glory, and I am happy with the results. Many people have the misconception of Lucifer; AKA Satin, the devil. Many people think he is some demon with horns and a pitch fork, ruling Hell. But this is not true.

Lucifer was an Ark Angel and was second in command in the heavens. But he wanted to ascend above God, thus began his fall. Lucifer is a prisoner in Hell, and wants to take God's creation with him out of rage.

So I made this rendition of what I think he looks like, several parts are symbolic. He shakes his fist at God as he suffers in the fires of darkness. Most people think Hell has red normal fire. But that kind of fire makes light. I think Hell has fire that is black and has no light. and delivers pain a thousand times greater than earth fire.

Hope you all enjoy this

Also Lucifer's exterior is absolutely beautiful you wouldn't know he was evil at first sight, he is pure evil and pure evil politely asks you to sin.

I thought he was more or less demoted to head of torture. But, couldn't of God just gotten rid of him? He is suppose to be an all powerful god, after all.

He's a God, he can get anything done in a second, why wait? This just one of many reasons, for myself, why this god doesn't exist.

Or better yet. since man became cursed with Sin, why not be merciful and exterminate mankind so none are born into sin and fall to hell for eternity? I always think that's what he should have done, but he has not.

Bare in mind, Lucifer was God's creation too. And he probably knew from the start that Lucifer would rebel, as well as the humans. I suppose its about freedom of choice.

If God made us all and knows everything about us all, and we are all part of 'God's Plan' then we don't have any freedom of choice.

Yeah, I have said that too, I would have to admit. What kind of choice do we have if it is already cast in stone? But it's kind of like how the Matrix explained it. we already made the choice, we just have to understand it.

An example. many times a mother knows when her kid is getting into a cookie jar. she does not cause him to get into it, she just knows he will.

I think it would be more accurate if the mother was pushing the child into the cookie jar, and then punishing him.

That is incredibly creepy and his gaping mouth just adds to his beastliness! You can also see how unnatural and plastic his beauty is by his hair and eyes. It also shows him as a once glorious but now defeated foe with a crushed head. The way he is shaking his fist also shows that he is unrepentant even to the very end because how can the very embodiment of Pride humble himself?

A few things though:

You are indeed correct about what he is not. But there are some errors in light of Scripture, bro.

Wasn't he a Cherub? (Ezekiel 28:13-19)
[link]

Satan is not in hell, he is roaming the earth causing trouble (Job 1:5-7) [link] he is called "god of this world" (2 Corinthians 4:4) [link] and "Prince of the powers of the Air" (Ephesians 2:2) [link] so he also in the atmosphere.

Hell/Hades is the word used for Hebrew Sheol, the (state of disembodiment) Grave; place of the dead. Satan will be thrown into the "Abyss". Revelation 20 described Satan will be released for a time, then eventually destroyed along with Death and Hades in the Lake of Fire (Gehenna) ie. the Second Death. Hell/Hades/Sheol is different from the Lake of Fire, you can't throw hell into hell =D

Satan will not be bound and thrown into the Abyss until in the future (Revelation 20:1-4) [link]

Interestingly, the name they called him (1 time) in Hebrew was Haylel, which sounds like the word for praise. Negatively, it can be used to mean "mad, boastful, fool." Seems pretty accurate =D

Good job and thank you for sharing with us, this is a powerful image and your hard work paid off. Lord bless, Kiyo.

Thanks for the comment. It means alot to me coming from such a skilled one as your self. I am still confused to what a Cherub is. But I do know at this moment he is roaming free. but this painting is not of him of this time, but later on. But I do appreciate you pointing it out :D

A cherub is a type of angel. Ezekiel chapter 1 has a description of them (pretty mind-blowing).

No problem, I also did it for the sake of some other visitors because some were saying he is ruler of hell and stuff (which isn't Biblical but from pop-media).

Here we go, 28:13-17: [link]

It called him a guardian cherub. I looked it up and the name he was called in Hebrew was Helyel "praise, mad, boastful." I think Lucifer was a possible mistranslation.

Hope that helps :-)

Wow, I guess...

Truly amazing, but are there so many that realy think of Satin as an horned picht fork carrier...

Just one other question, what is it with his lage moth, does that have a special meaning...
And just for the record, by seeing this fire I rather think of purgatory than hell...

Even though they say you burn in hell, I rather think hell has nothing to do with fire more with pain...
But oh well, hoe am I to correct the bible...

Hi Mel,

Interestingly, there is no purgatory in the Bible. It is during our lifetime that we decide who we want to follow :-) In Revelation, Satan will be imprisoned in the Abyss after a thousand years of Jesus' earthly reign, he will be re-released for a time, then eventually destroyed in Gehenna (Lake of Fire).

me and my writing, I mean "large mouth"...

well tipping to fast and not reading again is one of my bad behaves, oh well...

And that lake of fire thing, in my oppinion, i think that this was used as an mental Image in the mid. age because it was a strong Image of pain and destrution in the wars...

And so hell became something they could imagen now, but I for myself wouldn't take that litarally...

I fully understand all of the evil aspects of the devil, but my generally understanding nature can't help but see his side of the story. Like many people with ambition and a job that places them under someone's command, he wanted to rise to the top to take charge. Know it or not, many children often think in a similar way, thinking "If I was grown up and in charge, I could stay up as long as I want," or "If I was President, I'd abolish school." These ambitions aren't quite sensible, but similar goals are common among normal humans, so you can say it is only human for your goals and righteous ambition to overcome your sense and what is truly right. After all, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Let's not forget that Lucifer is in charge of hell. While obviously not a desirable position, he still seems to be doing his job given that the souls of the unrighteous are still being tortured and given eternal punishment for their misdeeds, which, in some seemingly twisted way, we should be thankful to him for. Of course, he still could be planning our demise, but if you challenged someone to a fight and they wiped the floor with you, you'd probably want to keep fighting until you bring them down and/or get what you originally came for. This is, of course, not quite right, since he brought this all upon himself, but you can understand his rage and lust for revenge. Note that I would never worship the devil, I'm just saying that I can see where he's coming from and sympathize with, even pity, him. I would still strike him down if I could and/or had to, but I would still say, "Sorry man, but you give us no choice," as I do it. My point is, he's more like us than we'd like to admit, and though that doesn't mean we have to join him, it does mean that we can't just write him off as some sort of loveless abomination that deserves no sympathy.

Hi Cyclipse,

Perhaps we're more like Satan than we like to admit (in regard to sin and rebellion against God).

I posted a comment on Kiyo's comments that show Biblical passages about Satan.

Satan is not in hell, he is roaming the earth causing trouble (Job 1:5-7) he is called "god of this world" (2 Corinthians 4:4 and "Prince of the powers of the Air" (Ephesians 2:2) so he also in the atmosphere. 9The passages are easily googled.) Do take a look at the rest, I have a little breakdown on hell as well.

Interesting discussions, Peace!

Yes I know. I kind of felt the same way as I painted this and thought of it as a tragedy that he went this way. And we have the same kind of ambitions because of the fruit that Eve and Adam ate, thus started the line of sin. Me personally thinks that eternity in Hell is way overkill of punishment for at least 90 years of a sinful life. 90 years is nothing to eternity. so to me its more like vengeance, rather justice. But Bible says Hell is the just judgement, and God is the one that makes the rules. And as mortals it's hard to see why things are the way they are. But just because we don't agree with it, does not change truth.

Lucifer does not control hell in any way or form. If you read the bible you will find that he is impression there just like any condemned soul. Hell delivers its own pain and torment, kind of like how acid rain burns all on its own. It's a realm with no ruler

A lot of American churches are lacking in conviction, love, and power so I don't blame a lot of people sad to say . . . We're turning into little concerts and social clubs instead of places of truth, reconciliation and healing in Christ.

Many cases I try to live right and be an example, but I know i fail alot and I admit that. I even tell them that even if we are saved, we are still sinners. Sin is embedded into man kind. Being saved means we know we are sinners and we admit we are, accepting our savor.

Well we are in Oklahoma. he used to be a football player for the Chicago Bears I think it was. but anyway he has been doing everything he can to insure that we will keep freedom in the USA. He also unvails the horrible things that are going on in our government that threatens our way of life. he shows where we can look up the proof ourselves, and he brings in alot of other people that even confirms it with detailed information. There was even a ex FBI agent that came in. By the way, have you heard of Act for America?

Yeah, it's all about us growing in spirit while the flesh withers to death. Romans talks a lot about feeding the spirit vs the flesh. We become less while Christ becomes more as we become in his image.

You mean here? [link] It's the first I've heard of it, I'm looking at the site now.
