The name Lucifer does not come from the Hebrew or even from the Greek translation but from the fourth century AD Latin translation of the verse.
It was in 382 Pope Damascus had St. Jerome, a scholar do a revision of the Latin versions of the texts. His translation. It is believed to be based on the Hebrew text and it is his interpretation that you read. Not yours, his.
And it is believed the scholars that were found to translate the King James Bible into current English did not use the original Hebrew texts. They instead used versions translated by St. Jerome way back in the fourth century. So Lucifer was most likely composed of a lot of what a scholar held as a truth,based on what he had been taught.
The first people who translated the Bible into English assumed the name Lucifer applied to Satan. When translating Isaiah 14:12 into English, they decided they would “translate” the word “Heylel, the original Latin name “Lucifer.” To them it just made more sense. TO THEM. This word is also found only one time in the Bible.
The word Lucifer is taken from the Latin Vulgate, meaning “the morning star, the planet Venus.’ In Greek Lucifer means, ‘bringer of dawn.’
Only in Isaiah 14:4-22, is Lucifer mentioned and it is referring to the King of Babylon after his defeat by the Persians. It seems those who translated words, misunderstood and thought Lucifer was really Satan. He was not. Again, many scholars believe Lucifer was the king of Babylon.
We are told this about Lucifer, “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”
Investing a little we find Lucifer is a Latin word meaning “light-bearer.’ Light means, ‘considered to be an authority or leader, someone who descends,’ as from a vehicle…from the sky? A Bearer, is the holder of rank or office and a person who shows great ability. In this case, it could mean Lucifer was a King and not an angel.
The name Lucifer does not appear in the original text of Isaiah, the only place the name Lucifer is ever mentioned in the Bible. Don’t you think that’s odd? Why would the name Lucifer appear only one time in the ancient writings? Why, if he was to become such an important character in the world? Maybe Lucifer was NOT a Fallen Angel.
Remember, you only know what you have been taught and then accepted as fact. Do you think the Devil, Satan and Lucifer are one and the same? If so, based on what FACTS?
