Obadiah 1:4

Though you exalt yourself as the eagle, and though you set your nest among the stars, from there will I bring you down, says the LORD.

Down. (Job xx. 6.) How vain is all human power!


AD 420
The Savior came not to send peace upon the earth but a sword. Lucifer fell, Lucifer who used to rise at dawn; and he who was bred up in a paradise of delight had the wellearned sentence passed upon him, “ ‘Though you exalt yourself as your eagle, and though you set your nest among the stars, thence will I bring you down,’ says the Lord.” For Lucifer had said in his heart, “I will exalt my throne above the stars of God,” and “I will be like the most high.” Therefore God says every day to the angels, as they descend the ladder that Jacob saw in his dream, “I say, ‘You are gods, sons of the most high, all of you; nevertheless you shall die like men and fall like any prince.’ ” The devil fell first. “God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment.”

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
