Default The annointed cherub that covereth

Ezekiel 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

Isaiah 14:13-14 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Ezekiel 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

I don't know if any one has thought of this before, I guess people probably have but it's a thought that I just had that's new to me. Of course, this is just speculation... but what if what Lucifer "covered" was God's person or His glory and he acted as His proxy or mouthpiece?

That might help account for Lucifer's "identity crisis". That is, thinking he could be like the eternal God. Lucifer might have become "schizophrenic", confusing his identity with God's identity.

What if what he was trafficking in was access to God or God's power? I thought this passage was interesting from this viewpoint.

Acts 8:9-24 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime

in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving

out that himself was some great one
: To whom they all gave heed, from the

least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him

they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with

sorceries. But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the

kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men

and women. Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he

continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which

were done. Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that

Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive

the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were

baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Then laid they their hands on them,

and they received the Holy Ghost. And when Simon saw that through laying

on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,

Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may

receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee,

because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with

money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not

right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray

God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I

perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.

Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of

these things which ye have spoken come upon me.

Just a thought.
