due to a radical change of heart from
both beings, Yahweh rewarded the Morning Star for his benign thousand-year
reign of the Earth; instead of casting the Fallen Angel into the Lake of
Fire, instead he would be "lifted up again by the Lord

During his preceding thousand-year imprisonment, the true repentance of
the punished had entered his damned soul. And wisdom also - he had in fact
experienced something of a revelation. Because in casting him out of
heaven forever, yet asserting that repentance was the true path to
redemption, he correctly discerned that Yahweh had inadvertently created a
paradox of forgiveness.
"And no matter where I roam
I will find my way back home
I will always return to the Lord" ~Van Morrison
In 1914, Jesus took
control of the heavenly kingdom and the Morning Star was loosed from his
prison. Therein lie his opportunity to have his status in heaven restored.
And like many sinners given just one last, final chance to redeem
themselves, he seized it with both hands.
In the starkest possible, apocalyptic terms, humanity was forewarned "woe
to the earth because Satan comes down with great wrath, knowing his time
is short". However that year did not usher in an age of violence such as
no other, instead quite the reverse.
Finding humanity on the very brink of catastrophy, the pity, and yes,
repentance, that once made him the mightiest of the Host of Angels,
stirred once again in his sinful heart. Because something was missing from
this harsh world, and that was love. And so for the first time in millenia,
the Morning Star once again called the warring nations to prayer,
exhorting them to love thy neighbour, yelling his holy name from the
roof-tops of the World, praise God, praise God almighty for this
precious gift of life
. The Morning Star that used to rise early had
arisen, once again.
