An angel looked at God’s heavens, God’s throne, God’s mount of assembly, God’s clouds, and God Himself and the angel said within himself basically “I will” take all this from God and become God (Is. 14:13,14).
I see an angel standing in this place with the view of the heavens spread out vastly above him. He can see God’s throne sitting on the mount of the congregation, the heights of the clouds, and himself sitting there on the throne as God.
He focused in on the throne with the belief if he could take the throne he would overthrow God. The possession of the throne meant God to him. Charging the throne by force and gaining control of the throne was becoming God. He saw a throne as God.
He lost sight of God, narrowing God down to an authoritative throne. The conclusion is the throne is the key to all of God. He was looking through a tunnel with the goal vision at the end of it making the throne his own and becoming God all the while the towering mountain above the tunnel was just a tip of God.
He was guilty of putting God in a box of his own belief. He lost sight that God created all things. The heavens, the throne, the mount in the midst of the congregation, the heights of the clouds were protective layers for all His creations. God has always protected His creations with layers so that they could interact with Him and live. In the book of 1 Timothy it is revealed to us in verse 16 there is a place with an unapproachable light that no one has seen or can see. In the concept of God being all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-present to see Him without layers of protection such as heavens, a throne at a certain location with clouds tells me God is more than any creation can handle and live in His fullness of Light. God from the beginning of all creations has protected them from the fullness of His light out of love for us all.
This angel within himself created a tunnel vision to a throne, a place God chose to visit His creations – a protective place to visit with them. I encourage you to read about the different layers of protection God has used from the beginning to all creations (Is. 6+more). He even created us in a form and likeness that could resemble Him if He chose a physical existence making us His children with the birth of our eternal spirits from His own breath. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made (Jn. 1:3). For in him we live, and move, and have our being… For we are also his offspring (Acts 17:28). God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-present everywhere at once at the same time – one God, nothing outside of Him.
The angel that narrowed his vision to a tunnel like view of the throne representing to him the way to become God himself was what he used on Eve and Adam the children of God – not angels. Eve accepted the tunnel vision to become like God by disobeying the one and only thing not to do was eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil with Adam joining her decision. The angel took the tunnel vision of the throne and got Eve and Adam focus in on the one forbidden fruit in all of the world just as the fallen angel lost sight that God was more than just a throne.
The totality of God was not in a throne or in a forbidden fruit divided against itself, but an all-present, all-powerful, all-knowing God was behind layers covering Himself in an unapproachable light that no one can survive seeing.
God loves us so much He is constantly reaching out to us through different layers that we can handle, understand, perceive, and digest into our spirits of Himself. Why do you think we feel, sense, and receive the things we do when we are for some in the mountains, on the oceans, in the woods, by the lakes, quietly meditating, singing, praying, studying, dreaming and the list goes on showing the reaching spirit hand of God by layers to embrace you with the fullness of truth about Him. He has given us a book inspired by His Spirit (2 Peter 1:21) to guide us and keep us in check – the Bible. For the fallen angel with the tunnel vision is trying to keep you and all of mankind locked-in with the same narrow tunnel vision attempting to keep you from seeing the massiveness of the Almighty God.
God said, in a way for us to understand a tiny bit about Him that “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be? Has not my hand-made all these things, and so they came into being?” This is why God had to create His own vessel in the flesh like unto His children to save them from the deceptive tunnel vision of lies through this body He called the Lamb of God – Jesus Christ (Col. 2:9, Heb. 2:14). This body God created, a layer of protection, has the purest blood to wash away all our sins through water baptism in Jesus name because His blood is inside the name. God can infill us with His Spirit because now our sins can be washed away creating a vessel inside of us able to live with His Spirit and ours (Acts 2:38 – second birth).
If you want to get out of the tunnel the fallen angel of this world pulled over Adam and Eve (mankind) then be born again of the water and the spirit you then can see endlessly into the all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-present God who loves you. Set yourself free from the oppressing dark tunnel with the false light at the end and make the free choice of all of yourself with all of God together in oneness fellowship of eternal life. God bless you and may your journey with God be a new discovery of His light everyday.
