Bible Questions with Michael Pearl
Episode 019: Where does the Bible say that angels aligned themselves with Lucifer?

By Michael Pearl

Episode Transcription:

Michael Pearl:  All right here we are again, Mike Pearl and Jared behind the camera. We are here to answer your Bible questions. I have not yet seen these or heard these questions yet, but we are going to take a shot at it. Jared, what is the first question?

Nicholas Lee:  Hi, my name is Nicholas Lee. I'm having a hard time finding in the Bible. I've somewhat‑‑I'm almost I sure read in there where them a third of the angels basically align themselves, or allied themselves, with Lucifer before they fall. And I look at this and if I can get this question answered, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Michael:  All right. He wants to know how some of the angels aligned themselves with Lucifer. And Revelation, Chapter 12, He says, Verse 1, "There appeared a great wonder in heaven...a woman clothed with the sun..." so forth, so on...Let's skip down there to Verse Three, "There appeared another wonder in Heaven, Behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns with seven crowns up on his head..." and by the way, He tells us later that this is Satan, the Devil. He is very clear about that. Verse Nine, He said, "The great dragon was cast out. The old serpent called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world, was cast down out of heaven and his angels were cast out with him..." So when He says the dragon, He is speaking of Satan, He's made that clear. He says, back to Revelations 12:4, "and his tail drew the third part of stars of heaven, and did cast them under the earth. And the dragon stood before them..." and the stars are angels, and He tells us that in Revelations, Chapter Three.

In Chapter Two, He says that he holds in his hand the seven, the seven, the seven...let's, it says in Revelations Chapter Three that He holds in His hand the seven stars, and these were the angels of the seven churches. And throughout the Scriptures, stars are represented as the angels. So yes, here we have a clear statement that one‑third of the angels were fallen with Satan and that they were his angels, Satan's angels.

When you come to the New Testament, you have a whole lot of different passages of devils being cast out and they're called devils. They are fallen angels that fell with Satan when he fell.
