LUCIFER IS NOT THE ANGEL WE THOUGHT HE WAS!I am fascinated by the fallen angels and I believe that the Book of Enoch may have been an authentic book that was omitted from the final version of our Bible due to fear and misunderstanding.Something I read about the archangel Gabriel one day on the Internet struck me.It was just a very brief line, that according to Babylonian legend, Gabriel hadfallen from grace. Allegedly he had disobeyed and displeased God.I had been thinking of the fallen angels and archangel Gabriel for some time. This legend gave me ideas and inspirations which slowly led me to certain conclusions. These are just my beliefs, of course, but they are carefully constructedand make sense to me.First of all, I believe that "Satan" was not evil. Not fallen. Not at the timeof Job, when God used him to test Job's faith and character. "Satan" could nothave been evil or fallen yet, because he came before the throne of God and supposedly had access both to Heaven and the Father. Impossible for a fallen angel,I believe.Also, as I mentioned in another essay I had written, God spoke with "Satan" notas an adversary, but as his own, using him to test man and to bring upon man unpleasant but necessary trials.Babylonian legends precede much of the Old Testament, I think, and of course theNew Testament. Before the life of Jesus.These ancient cultures and myths have staying power, and very often they do so because there is some element of truth contained within them.If Gabriel did indeed fall from grace, I think this may be the reason:JESUS THE CHRIST AND GABRIEL'S INVOLVEMENT/ATTACHMENT REGARDING JESUS.Gabriel had a special relationship with Our Lady - announcing the conception, coming to Joseph in a dream, and according to some stories, appearing to comfort Jesus in the Garden.If this were true, he would feel a closeness with Blessed Mother and Jesus, as they were part of his destiny and his mission from God.Therefore, I believe that if Gabriel fell from grace and displeased God, it wasconnected to Jesus in some way.I do not think Gabriel ever stopped loving Jesus - I BELIEVE THAT GABRIEL TURNEDAGAINST MANKIND AND RESENTED THE SACRIFICE AND SUFFERING THAT JESUS MADE FOR THEM.If you believe in all the visitations of Gabriel mentioned in the Old Testament- if you believe he was still in God's favor at that time - then his fall from grace must have occurred either before the death of Jesus or after.The story of Gabriel in the Garden of Gethsemene may be only a legend. But theother visitations seem to be more specific.Those of us who believe in the Bible and take it very seriously will agree thatGabriel was mentioned quite a bit and appeared a number of times, both to the Virgin Mary, Joseph and others - and possibly even Jesus. In any case, his connection with the Holy Family must have been strong.
 
So his fall from God's favor COULD NOT HAVE HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH DISRESPECT OF THE HOLY FAMILY OR GOD, BUT RATHER WITH MANKIND. OR ELSE, HOW COULD GABRIEL HAVE CONTINUED TO COME TO EARTH ON MISSIONS AND VISITATIONS?He could not have fallen in Genesis or in the Old Testament, unless God choosesto forgive and sends the fallen angels "back to work" so to speak rather quickly!I believe the Father forgives, but this scenario does not seem likely.Also, there is an interesting passage in the New Testament, I heard, when Jesusascended into Heaven. It was then that Jesus supposedly cast "Satan" out of Heaven for good! Now, if "Satan", the leader of the fallen, had been cast out previously, what was he still doing in Heaven that Jesus had to forcibly cast him out? This never made much sense to me - unless you consider that "Satan" was an angel who had been in Heaven for a long time - up until the ascension of Jesus.According to the Book of Enoch, a group of angels came to earth to watch over mankind and oversee our development.They began to show men and women too many things - how to make weapons, how to enhance appearance and sexuality, how to read the stars and tell the future. These were all sacred secrets that man was not supposed to know. According to thisBook, men and women began to sin, become lustful and violent.Also, some of the fallen angels were attracted to the "daughters of men" and hadrelations with them, thereby creating children, known as the Nephilim.The Nephilim were called "giants" but I do not believe that is a literal term.I believe the word "giants" in this case means that mentally these children weregiants. Not physically tall, but intellectually perhaps they were geniuses. Or outstanding in some way.According to another legend regarding Gabriel, he was one of the angels, still in God's favor, who came to earth shortly after the Nephilim race began. He helped to destroy the race through disinformation.There may have been more than one fall from grace, by more than one group of angels. Remember, there are limitless numbers of angels. There may be as many motives, personalities and levels of darkness as there are angels. Hierarchies, I call them. So you may have some fallen who are truly incorrugible, who are disruptive and harmful. Then you may have those who are more evolved and inclined torecognize and respect the light and goodness.People think in a linear fashion. And most do not broaden their concepts aboutreligion. But in this case it may be good to do so. The angels may have rebelled more than once in time, and for more than one reason. And I believe one of our most popular archangels, Gabriel, did so as well.The angels in Heaven had a problem with humanity from the start, I am sure. Atleast some did. Which could explain why, in the Book of Enoch, they came to earth. To help, to get along, to teach mankind a better way. To give men and women power. But this backfired and proved to be a terrible mistake that ended up branding the angels forever. The angels inadvertently may have introduced evil into the world by showing man too much. And man took the proverbial ball and ranwith it, never looking back. Even after the flood, evil continued.Hence the resentment could have grown beyond measure between the fallen and mankind, of course, not between the angels of light and man. The chasm widened, the
