Pride Goes Before a Fall

joseph's coat 3 tn_j0353635Pride Goes Before a Fall

Those who have ears listen:

Original sin- not in

Garden of Eden

But in heaven

When Satan rebelled

And then was felled.

Covering cherub

Beautiful like peacock

Wanted to usurp

Place of the Rock

He said, ‘I will arise,

Be like the Most high.

Iniquity was found

Then he was bound.

Shot like bullet

Ejected like a pellet

The mighty had fallen

The demise of Satan.

Pride goes before a fall

Like it was with Saul

So bow this day

And follow the Way.

High yet stooped so low

Humbled Himself as He bowed

Obeyed God the Father

To lift you and I higher.

He took the form of flesh

To revive, redeem and refresh.

He hung on the cross

To take away our curse.

So choose God’s way

And you will not stray.

Beware of pride

That derails to ride

Choose humility

That secures the New City.

11   Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, And the sound of your stringed instruments; The maggot is spread under you, And worms cover you.’

The Fall of Lucifer

12   ” How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!

13   For you have said in your heart: ‘ I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north;

14   I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’

15   Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.

16   ” Those who see you will gaze at you, And consider you, saying:Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms,

17   Who made the world as a wilderness And destroyed its cities, Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’

Isa14:

Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord God: Because your heart is lifted up and you have said and thought, I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods, in the heart of the seas; yet you are only man [weak, feeble, made of earth] and not God, though you imagine yourself to be almost more than mortal with your mind as the mind of God;

Ezekiel 28:4-8

Amplified Bible (AMP)

With your own wisdom and with your own understanding you have gotten you riches and power and have brought gold and silver into your treasuries;

By your great wisdom and by your traffic you have increased your riches and power, and your heart is proud and lifted up because of your wealth;

Therefore thus says the Lord God: Because you have imagined your mind as the mind of God [having thoughts and purposes suitable only to God Himself],

Behold therefore, I am bringing strangers upon you, the most terrible of the nations, and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom [O Tyre], and they shall defile your splendor.

They shall bring you down to the pit [of destruction] and you shall die the [many] deaths of all the Tyrians that are slain in the heart of the seas.

Ezekiel 28:13-17

Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 You were in [a]Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the carnelian, topaz, jasper, chrysolite, beryl, onyx, sapphire, carbuncle, and emerald; and your settings and your sockets andengravings were wrought in gold. On the day that you were created they were prepared.

14 You were the anointed cherub that covers with overshadowing [wings], and I set you so. You were upon the holy mountain of God; you walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire [like the paved work of gleaming sapphire stone upon which the God of Israel walked on Mount Sinai].

15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created until iniquity and guilt were found in you.

16 Through the abundance of your commerce you were filled with lawlessness and violence, and you sinned; therefore I cast you out as a profane thing from the mountain of God and the guardian cherub drove you out from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Your heart was proud and lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I lay you before kings, that they might gaze at you. Ezek28:2,4-8,13-17

Isa14:11-16, Ezek28:2,4,5-8, 13-17
