Have you ever met anyone that you would consider arrogant? Are you yourself arrogant? Of course you may not answer yes to the last question because 90% of those who are arrogant don’t realize that they are. Maybe you’ve heard the words pride; full of oneself; superior. If you have and these words were directed towards you; you were being called arrogant.
Arrogance is a very dangerous position to put on oneself and GOD hates it greatly. Let me share a story with you. There once was an angel; a beautiful angel whose position was to praise and when he would move music would flow from him. I mean that all he had to do was breath and praise in music would flow from him. He was considered to be the most beautiful of angels. Not only was he the angel of praise he carried with him great authority; this position was designed for only three angels and he was one of them. As time passed he began to take notice of himself; he looked so intently at himself that he lost sight of who he was; what he was created for; when he would do what he was created to, that the population would praise and give glory to the one it’s meant for; where he wanted to be was not for him. So he began to purpose in his heart a plot to overtake and overthrow the environment which was not set up for him to rule. He began to speak into the ears of others until he won their hearts and they sided with him for this great treason.
However, there is something that this angel did not consider. Whom he wants to overthrow is all knowing; there is nothing that he does not hear or see. He does not need for someone to tell him that treason is being planned. Eventually, the day came when enough was enough. The day of reckoning had come for this stupid angel and his followers. He was stripped of his ability to create music of praise yet he creates music of chaos. He was stripped of his beauty and all that he stands for even his very name has caused him to be the very most grotesque creature there is. He was stripped of his original authority and now has the authority given to him by others. His plan unfortunately has never changed. He’s blinded by his arrogance and he has recruited many to his army. Providing empty promises that will never be fulfilled; he kills to get what he wants. He steals to get what he desires and he is a destroyer. He knows the Word of GOD better than humans so he twists the words around, put words where there are none or takes out what should be there to confuse those who are familiar with GOD’s Word. He lies each time he speaks and because he can’t be everywhere at all times he has agents that do his bidding and report back to him. Another incident came about when an awesome man had enough of his pleasure with people. He went to his home and beat him up bad and took back what he had stolen from the people. This guy hurt him real bad to the point that the angel does not have the power to do anything except mess with those who are unfamiliar with the guy that beat him up or his previous history before that. He messes with people’s minds. Those that have made their escape from him, he sends his agents after them and tell his agents to get them back at all cost.
But those who stand and do not fall will prevail against him. The end.
For those of you who do not realize; I just told you the story of the Archangel Lucifer who became satan and how he was evicted from heaven with his followers. That JESUS went into hell and took back the keys of death and hell. The moral of the story is this; if you are arrogant you need to check yourself. GOD hates pride; if HE evicted the angels because of arrogance what chance do you have?
