This particular house would be considered a masterpiece to say the least. Everything was designed to upmost perfection by the master craftsman himself. From the foundation to the roofing and everything in between, nothing out of place. Beauty reflected through every crevice, diamonds, gold, ruby, topaz, beryl, onyx, jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and emerald were just some of the raw material that covered the spiritual home.
God called his masterpiece the anointed Cherub. The anointed Cherub was placed in the garden of God, on top of the Holy mountain. Along with all of the beauty, wisdom and splendor that adorned the anointed Cherub, he was also given free will. On the surface Gods perfect design showed no flaws, but internally his wisdom was corrupted by his own beauty. He was soon filled with violence and lifted his heart above the throne of God. From appearances he was the model Angel, so much so, that a third of the angels followed his rebellious war against God. But on the inside he was full of pride and rebellion. Soon after the anointed Cherubs attack, he and a third of the angels were cast out heaven and into the side of the pits or hell as it's called.
No longer a remnant of the masterpiece he was created, he would forever more be known as satan, the father of all lies. He is now a master deceiver, still at war with God and his children. Mankind was created in the image of God, but soon forfeited their rights by heeding to satan's deception and disobeying Gods one command. The keys to our freedom were soon bought back with a price. God sent his only begotten son into a wretched, sinful world, only to live a perfect life before his father and to die a gruesome death for a wretched, sinful people. Which was the ultimate price.
Eternal life is now available for all that choose to receive it. With that said, the minds of those that don't believe are blinded by Satan. As a wolf in sheep's clothing, he subtly plants seeds of doubt and fear into those that let him. As believers we are not only encouraged to spread the gospel, but we are commanded. As the Word is spread, deception is exposed and living stones are added to Gods true masterpiece, which is us, in Christ!
