Satan's Fall


When did Satan fall?
After God made all
Angels, seraphim,
Heaven holding them.

Why did Satan sin?
Something foul within:
Blooming, stinking pride
That God can't abide.

What is Satan's end?
Jesus Christ will send
Him to endless flame--
Satan and his fame.


...And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
--Revelation 20:10 ESV

How often our world presents the the idea that without pride we have nothing. With it we have God as our enemy! Even having nothing beats that!

Great Poem.

Nasty! Not your poem, but the creature it describes.

Beautiful! That though we march through time, outside this moment by moment world, all God's purposes are accomplished, and we are rushing towards the end of all things to meet Him.

Satan is no more.
