Life’s Journey

Here is a poem that I originally wrote in 2005 and won a award for doing it from

and here it is:


Life’s Journey

written        by

James Shelton


Life is a journey

That no one can explain

The up’s and down’s

Traveling through cities and towns

Life is full of questions

That very few can explain

Life is not a game

You pick or choose

But you decide

What you do in all of your life

And in the end

People will see where your journey leads


Lucifer was a fallen King,not a fallen angel or the devil or satan either

To many of you unaware and just go by what others tell you.

You have been raised to believe Lucifer was God’s Angel

who fought God and was cast out of heaven.

If any of those who taught you had actually read Isaiah 14,

they would be shocked to find they’re wrong.

The Bible passage never compares Lucifer to the devil or satan at  all

nor does it refer to Lucifer as being a fallen angel,satan or the devil ever.

This is only Bible passage that mentions Lucifer ever.

Lucifer actually was not the being’s name,

yet it was a part of a proverb used against the King of Babylon.

The man did God’s own people wrong then he fell from power and died.


Isaiah 14:3-22 says the following:

3And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give you rest from your sorrow,

and from your fear, and from the hard bondage wherein you were made to serve,

4That you shall take up this proverb against the king of Babylon,

and say, How has the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

5The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, and the scepter of the rulers.

6He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke,

he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hinders.

7The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

8Yes, the fir trees rejoice at you, and the cedars of Lebanon,

saying, Since you are laid down, no feller is come up against us.

9Hell from beneath is moved for you to meet you at your coming:

it stirs up the dead for you, even all the chief ones of the earth;

it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

10All they shall speak and say to you,

Are you also become weak as we? are you become like to us?

11Your pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of your viols:

the worm is spread under you, and the worms cover you.

12How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!

how are you cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations!

13For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven,

I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:

I will sit also on the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

15Yet you shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

16They that see you shall narrowly look on you, and consider you,

saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

17That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof;

that opened not the house of his prisoners?

18All the kings of the nations, even all of them,

lie in glory, every one in his own house.

19But you are cast out of your grave like an abominable branch,

and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword,

that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcass trodden under feet.

20You shall not be joined with them in burial,

because you have destroyed your land, and slain your people:

the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.

21Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers;

that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

22For I will rise up against them, said the LORD of hosts,

and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, said the LORD.

23I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water:

and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, said the LORD of hosts.


As you can tell Isaiah was confronting the people about Nebuchadnezzar,

who was a fallen king,not a fallen angel.

The opinion that Lucifer was a angel,satan or the devil is false.

The notion that he could have even been a angel is far from fact.

Nebuchadnezzar was a very destructive king and man who fell from power

and not a powerful angel as some falsely assume.
