Angel trend.
Sin originated with the one who, under Christ, was the most honored by God, and the highest in power and glory among the inhabitants of Heaven. Lucifer, "son of the morning", was the first of the covering cherubs, holy , uncontaminated . He remained in the presence of the great Creator, and the incessant rays of glory that surrounded the eternal God, rested on him ....
Little by little Lucifer came to indulge the desire for self-exaltation. The Scriptures say: "Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty, you corrupted your wisdom because of your radiance." Ezeq. 28:17. "You said in your heart: ... above the stars of God I will exalt my throne. ... I will be like the Most High." Isa. 14:13, 14. While all her glory came from God, this mighty angel came to regard her as belonging to himself. Not content with his position, although he was more honored than the heavenly host, he ventured to covet the homage due solely to the Creator. Instead of seeking to make God the supreme target of the affections and faithfulness of all created beings, his effort was to obtain their service and loyalty to himself. AND,
... Lucifer allowed his feelings of envy to Christ to prevail, and he became more determined ...
... The angels gladly acknowledged the supremacy of Christ, and, prostrating themselves before Him, poured out their love and adoration. Lucifer bowed to them; but in his heart there was a strange, violent conflict. Truth, justice and loyalty were fighting envy and jealousy.The influence of the holy angels seemed to take him with them for some time. As the songs of praise ascend, in melodious chords, swelled by thousands of joyful voices, the spirit of evil seemed subdued; unspeakable love made his whole being tremble; in concert with sinless worshipers, his soul was expanded in love towards the Father and the Son. Again, however, he found himself filled with pride in his own glory. The desire for supremacy returned, and once again he indulged Christ's envy. The high honors bestowed on Lucifer were not appreciated as a special gift from God, and therefore did not elicit gratitude towards his Creator. He gloryed in his brilliance and exaltation, and aspired to be like God. He was loved and revered by the heavenly army, angels delighted in carrying out his orders, and he was clothed with wisdom and glory more than all of them. However, the Son of God was more exalted than he, being one in power and authority with the Father. He shared the Father's advice, while Lucifer did not thus penetrate God's purposes. "Why," asked this mighty angel, "should Christ have primacy? Why is He more honorable than Lucifer?" ...
... He began to imply doubts regarding the laws that governed the celestial beings, implying that, although the laws might be necessary for the inhabitants of the worlds, the angels, who were higher in nature, did not need such restrictions, since their wisdom was a sufficient guide. They were not beings who could dishonor God; all his thoughts were holy; there was no greater possibility for them to make mistakes than for God Himself ...
... Lucifer himself had not at first been aware of the true nature of his feelings; for some time he was afraid to express the action and imaginations of his mind; however he did not repel them ...
