When someone mentions Lucifer, it usually has a nefarious connotation, but who really is this ‘bearer of light’?
History teaches us that Christianity was not founded by Yeshua ben Yosef (Jesus), but rather by Paul. Also, he never really met Jesus, just claimed to have. Paul was heavily influenced by his current path which was Mithraism, a sun cult and this is possibly where he got the cross. No human living today truly knows if Jesus was crucified, impaled, or even roasted alive. The Roman Soldiers were left to their own devices to be as cruel, lingering, and painful as possible. And they were very good at it. The same guys are said to work for the Russian Mafia now.
There are hints about his death in the scriptures, which were again, mutilated and enhanced by the Council of Nicea under the guidance of Constantine. Who by the way, never was a Christian at all. He just wanted a religion to control, and unify his empire. Christianity seemed to be a good one, but it had lots of problematic teachings that had to be weeded out. What humanity got had little to do with anything the Son of God was believed to have taught.
Who did Lucifer kill or maim? Now look at the god the world worships. How many have died in HIS name?
Lucifer, wiki: In Latin, from which the English word is derived, Lucifer (as a noun) means “light-bearer” (from the words lucem ferre). It was the name given to the Morning Star, i.e. the planet Venus when seen at dawn.
Who is Lucifer and why has this name been misunderstood for so long?
According to wiki, Lucifer (as a noun) has Latin origins and means “light-bearer” (from the words lucem ferre). It was the name given to the Morning Star, i.e. the planet Venus when seen at dawn. (1)
In astrotheology, Lucifer is Venus while Satan is Saturn, so clearly, the two are not the same.

Recently, a Roman Catholic Church bishop admitted that “hell” was an invention of the church, so the fictitious “Satan” does not exist.
In the King James version of the bible, Lucifer is only mentioned once:
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (2)
How many people did Lucifer kill in the bible? None. How many people has the Christian church killed? Millions. The hypocritical stance by the church and Christianity will tell you to “Love thy neighbor” (as long as they’re Christians), but to apparently kill anyone else who does not believe in Jesus or Christianity.
For the record, the letter “J” wasn’t invented until the 1500’s, so there was no official Jesus, John, Jacob, Jonah, Joseph, Jude, etc… in the bible. There may have been a person by the name of Yeshua ben Yosef, but this is debatable as well. Even the translation means “Joshua, son of Joseph”, not Jesus.
The Early Beginnings of Christianity
The earliest references to Jesus came from Paul, who wrote about him 20 years after his alleged death.
The early success of Christianity was due in large part to certain reforms that Paul argued for. Christianity began its life as a first century apocalyptic Jewish cult. Judaism in the first century CE was very difficult to join, and correspondingly very difficult to spread. Membership in Judaism was only achieved after a long conversion process, accompanied with various rituals. One had to be circumcised (most gentiles of the period were not) and one had to obey the various Jewish laws as they were then laid down in the Septuagint (the early form of the Hebrew Bible which was in common use at the time.) Paul argued for the establishment of gentile Christian churches, membership in which did not entail circumcision or long drawn out rituals. He also argued on the topic of the application of Jewish law to the gentiles. Christians, in the modern world, find his words to be central to their beliefs. (3)
In 382 AD, Pope Damasus I commissioned St. Jerome to write a revision of the old Latin translation of the Bible. This task was completed sometime during the 5th century AD, and eventually it was considered the official and definite Latin version of the Bible according to the Roman Catholic church. By the 13th century it was considered the versio vulgate – the common translation.
Where is Lucifer in the bible?
It was St. Jerome who placed the word Lucifer into the Bible, and not just once, but three times! Isaiah 14:12, Job 11:17, and 2 Peter 1:19.
1. Isaiah 14:12 according to the Vulgate translation – Et habemus firmiorem propheticum sermonem : cui benefacitis attendentes quasi lucernæ lucenti in caliginoso donec dies elucescat, et lucifer oriatur in cordibus vestries
2. Job 11:17 – Et quasi meridianus fulgor consurget tibi ad vesperam; et cum te consumptum putaveris, orieris ut lucifer.
3. 2 Peter 1:19 – Et habemus firmiorem propheticum sermonem : cui benefacitis attendentes quasi lucernæ lucenti in caliginoso donec dies elucescat, et (lucifer) oriatur in cordibus vestries
Here are these same verses in the KJV, where the word “Lucifer” is only mentioned once.
1. Isaiah 14:12 – 12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
2. Job 11:17 – 17And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday: thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
3. 2 Peter 1:19 – 19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts (4)
Luciferianism is a belief system that venerates the essential characteristics that are affixed to Lucifer. The tradition, influenced by Gnosticism, usually reveres Lucifer not as the Devil, but as a liberator or guiding spirit or even the true god as opposed to Jehovah. In the modern occultism of Madeline Montalban, Lucifer’s identification as the Morning Star (Venus) equates him with Lumiel, whom she regarded as the Archangel of Light, and among Satanists he is seen as the “Torch of Baphomet” and Azazel.

Bill Donahue on Lucifer
From Bill Donahue:
Hades, pronounced HAY deez, was the god of the dead in Greek mythology. He ruled the kingdom of the dead, which had the same name. The ancient Romans preserved without change almost all the myths about Hades and his kingdom, but they called the god Pluto. Hades was the son of Cronus and Rhea, and the older brother of Zeus, the king of the gods. In the Bible he is Lucifer. (5)
See related Bill Donahue article: The Jesus Factor – How Many Christians Will Truly Follow the Words of Jesus?
Venus, the ruler of Taurus and most brilliant star in the evening and morning (other than the moon), was called Faas by the Greek (meaning Light) and by the Romans, Lucifer, the Light Bearer. To the occultists, Venus was the planet of inner light and illumination.
The Statue of Liberty would better be called the Statue of Lucifer with the right hand bringing the Light signifying the United States’ role as the Right Hand Path of the governmental Luciferian Agenda.
The seal of the honorary 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. Here we see the bent blade pointing to the left, signifying the Scottish Rite and Freemasonry as representing the Left Hand Path of Luciferianism. The blade is also pertinent as it is very important in symbolic ritual.
Almost every reference to Light that is available today in scripture or spiritual text has been placed there by Luciferians. Enlightenment is an esoteric representation of the apotheosis achieved through Lucifer. The ascensions mentioned in many scriptures that are accompanied by a great Light are just the same. Luciferians have placed many symbols in the Christian bible as well. The Lamb, the Way, and the Light are all used to represent Jesus in the bible. Every single one of these is a purely Luciferian symbol placed long ago by my predecessors.
Lucifer was not the serpent in the Garden of Eden. This would be considered blasphemous to a true Luciferian. Reducing the power of Lucifer to a snake in a certain religious scripture is an insult to Him. Similarly, Lucifer is not the biblical Satan or Lucifer, who was a fallen angel. These biblical instances are nothing more than an attempt by the feeble-minded to personify the all-permeating, all-powerful, all-encompassing Lucifer.
In “Star Wars”, it only takes a moment to reveal what exactly Lucifer is. Lucifer is the “force”. Lucifer is the “oneness” that mystics and Buddhists describe (also a Luciferian religion but we will come to that another day). Lucifer is the “Akashic Field” spoken of by Indian mystics and prominent Luciferians like Ervin Laszlo in his accessible Luciferian work, The Akashic Experience. Lucifer is the spark of inspiration that drives a painter to create priceless masterpieces. Like Lucifer is portrayed in Star Wars, in real life we can tap upon the power of Lucifer, the Creator and Creation, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. Every psychic, mystic, yogi, medium and occultist is tapping upon the endless power of Lucifer.
The growth of the New Age movement, along with Eastern Mysticism (especially LHP Eastern Mysticism like techniques that evoke the “Kundalini” energy), has made Lucifer an everyday reality. The “Kundalini” energy is often described as snake-like as the Human Intellect often personifies the power of Lucifer as a serpent. (8)
Plato’s Hermetic views on Lucifer
Plato, who is thought to have been born in 428 b.c.e. and therefore predates the New Testament and some of the rewrites of the Old Testament, wrote in his work called Timaeus:
Time, then, and the heaven came into being at the same instant in order that, having been created together, if ever there was to be a dissolution of them, they might be dissolved together. It was framed after the pattern of the eternal nature, that it might resemble this as far as was possible; for the pattern exists from eternity, and the created heaven has been, and is, and will be, in all time. Such was the mind and thought of God in the creation of time. The sun and moon and five other stars, which are called the planets, were created by him in order to distinguish and preserve the numbers of time; and when he had made their several bodies, he placed them in the orbits in which the circle of the other was revolving — in seven orbits seven stars. First, there was the moon in the orbit nearest the earth, and next the sun, in the second orbit above the earth; then came the morning star and the star sacred to Hermes, moving in orbits which have an equal swiftness with the sun, but in an opposite direction; and this is the reason why the sun and Hermes and Lucifer overtake and are overtaken by each other.
Plato is clearly speaking of Lucifer as being the actual planet Venus, with Hermes as being the planet Mercury, “moving in orbits which have an equal swiftness with the Sun.”
Astrothology and Lucifer
It appears that the misogyny of the early Solar cults and the later Roman church might have had a part to play in linking the feminine Venus with Satan:
There are also many pre-Christian myths and allegories that include stories about Lucifer, which is the Latin name for the Greek Eosphoros. … In the oldest Zoroastrian allegories, Mithra is supposed to have conquered the planet Venus. In the Christian tradition, Michael defeats Lucifer. (9)
It’s interesting to point out that any name that ends in “el” has an association to the Elohim, e.g. Michael, Daniel, Ezekiel, etc…
Another interesting notation is how Venus is associated with the Goddess of Love, Lucifer and Jesus. Can it be all three or is it the energy of the feminine that created the Goddess of Love archetype?

Lucifer and Freemasonry
The Luciferian Doctrine is held in high esteem amongst the upper levels of freemasonry.
The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine. . . Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay (Jesus) is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two Gods: darkness being necessary to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive. . .”The doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophic religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay (Jesus); but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of darkness and evil.

The scholars authorized by the militantly Catholic King James I to translate the Bible into current English did not use the original Hebrew texts, but used versions translated from the Catholic Vulgate Bible produced largely by St. Jerome in the fourth century. Jerome had mistranslated the Hebraic metaphor, “Day star, son of the Dawn,” as “Lucifer,” and over the centuries a metamorphosis took place. Lucifer the morning star became a disobedient angel, cast out of heaven to rule eternally in hell. Theologians, writers, and poets interwove the myth with the doctrine of the Fall, and in Christian tradition Lucifer is now the same as Satan, the Devil, and – ironically- the Prince of Darkness.”
So “Lucifer” is nothing more than an ancient Latin name for the morning star, the bringer of light. That can be confusing for Christians who identify Christ himself as the morning star, a term used as a central theme in many Christian sermons. Jesus refers to himself as the morning star in Revelation 22:16:
I, Jesus, have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
in5d Final Thoughts on Lucifer
I seriously doubt that Lucifer is an evil entity, especially from an astrotheological view. With only three references in the bible, Lucifer has somehow been mistakenly associated with “Satan”.
According to one particular priest, “Hell” was contrived by the church in order to keep their followers in conformity through fear. Additionally, the Christian “God” has wiped out civilizations as evidenced several times in the bible, including the story of Noah’s Ark. This sounds more like “Satan” than an all-loving creator.
This is why you will not see me refer to Creator or Source as “god”. I wrote an article called BLOODLINES: Let US Make Man In OUR Image – Who Is ‘US’ And ‘OUR’? that exposes who the “us” and “our” are.
I find it interesting how the Roman Catholic Church owns some of the world’s most powerful telescopes. One has to ask themselves, “Why?” One particular telescope is called L.U.C.I.F.E.R. located at the Mount Graham Observatory and is an acronym for “Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research”. Surely, they know this is not a coincidence.
Speculation infers that the Vatican has these high powered telescopes to monitor biblical warnings such as “Wormwood” aka Nibiru or Planet X:
“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.” (Revelation 8:10, 11 – King James Bible).
Another possibility is that the Vatican is monitoring extraterrestrial activity and has already made ET contact hundreds of years, which may explain the religious belief in “God”, who in the religious texts may be an extraterrestrial and not the ultimate Source or Creator.
The Roman Catholic Church is also the holder of many Mayan texts that were returned to them after the Spanish Inquisition as a payoff. Upon hiring a team of mathematicians, the Roman Catholic Church decoded these texts and have known of the Mayan calendar’s end date of December 21, 2012 for many, many years. Perhaps they are afraid of the return of Quetzalcoatl / Kulkulkan?
Getting back to Lucifer, in this writer’s opinion, he is no more of an evil entity than you or me. Those in power have a history of twisting information around in order to benefit themselves. Is it possible that Lucifer has always been the “good” angel? Perhaps. The bottom line to Lucifer is that one shouldn’t fear a “light bearer” or the planet Venus, but one should also be cognizant of what energies are associated with this name and planet and how they affect your life from an astrological viewpoint.
