The lesson of the fallen angels is a sobering gift for us.
It should help us realize just how good and generous God is to us fallen human beings.
It should remind us that Satan and his demons hate us and literally burn with hellish envy.
It should remind us that in their rebellious rage, they would like nothing more than to have us lose the gift that they once coveted.
It should remind us that they would like nothing more than to drag us down with them “into the depth of the pit,” that they’d like nothing more than to get back at God by preventing him from raising us up to the thrones of glory that Lucifer had so perversely cherished.
