SATAN MASQUERADES

May 28, 2013

When doing an Internet search of my name to see what comes up, in addition to the people with similar names and web sites, I discovered an article I want to share in part from a site that answers questions related to The Holy Bible. My reason for so doing is because so many people with lack of knowledge have claimed I "sold my soul to the devil" because of the name change and have prayed for me out of ignorance. The question and article use "masquerades" and "disguises himself" from several different translations of The Holy Bible.  In only the King James Version is found the translation  "transforms himself" (which has the same ulterior motive/meaning).

Question: "What does it mean that Satan masquerades as an angel of light?"


Answer: Even a child understands that darkness and light are metaphors for evil and good. If anyone sees an angel of light, it will automatically seem to be a good being, for the correlation of evil with darkness, and of good with light, is a powerful archetype in human history. In the Bible, light is a spiritual metaphor for truth and God’s unchanging nature (James 1:17). It is repeatedly used in the Bible to help us understand that God is wholly good and truthful (1 John 1:5). When we are “in the light,” we are with Him (1 Peter 2:9). He exhorts us to join Him in the light (1 John 1:7), for giving us light was His purpose (John 12:46). Light is the place where love dwells and is comfortable (1 John 2:9-10). God has created light (Genesis 1:3), dwells in the light (1 Timothy 6:16) and puts the light in human hearts so that we can see and know Him and understand truth (2 Corinthians 4:6).

So, when 2 Corinthians 11:14 tells us that “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light,” it means that Satan capitalizes on our love of the light in order to deceive. He wants us to think that he is good, truthful, loving, and powerful – all the things that God is. To portray himself as a dark, devilish being with horns would not be very appealing to the majority of people. Most people are not drawn to darkness, but to light. Therefore, Satan appears as a creature of light to draw us to himself and his lies.
