“How you have fallen from heaven, Lucifer, son of the morning! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to the heavens: I will raise my throne above the Stars of Yahweh; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.” Isaiah 14:12-14
The devil, Satan, called Lucifer before he was cast down from heaven, has always wanted to be like Yahweh, to usurp his Creator’s place as the only One True God, and be worshipped in His stead (see The truth about Santa Claus, Symbolism of Superheroes and Spiritual Dangers of Martial Arts).
Throughout history, he has achieved this by deceiving mankind via various religions, which keep morphing to adapt to the changing eras.
Satan, the serpent that tricked our ancient father Adam and our aged mother Eve into eating the Forbidden Fruit (see Wake Up! It’s 1984) has slithered his way into man’s heart by replacing the Holy Name of our Heavenly Father, Yahweh Almighty, with a title that represents him:
Some time after the return from the captivity, and before the beginning of the Christian era, the Yahdaim (Jews) came to believe that the Holy Name Yahweh was too sacred to be uttered on ordinary occasions. It was said to be pronounced by the High Priest on the Day of Atonement. At other times, when anyone read or quoted aloud from what is called the Old Testament, the word ‘Adonay’ was usually substituted for YAHWEH, and similarly the LXX (Septuagint Version) has ‘Kurios’, the Vulgate ‘Dominus’, and the English Version ‘Lord’, where the Hebrew has YAHWEH. Hebrew was originally written without vowels, but when the ‘vowel points’ were added, the vowels of ‘Adonay’ or ‘Elohim’ were written with YAHWEH, as a direction that these words were to be read instead of the word whose consonants were YAHWEH; thus we find the combinations YeHoWaH and YeHoWiH. At the Reformation, the former being the more usual, was sometimes used as the Name of the Mighty One of Israyl, and owing to ignorance of its history was misread as ‘Jehovah’, a form which has established itself in English, but does not give the pronunciation of the Holy Name it represents. — The Century Bible, Volume 1, pages 90-91
The Holy Name of our Heavenly Father, Yahweh, the Almighty, the Only True God and Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, the Alpha and the Omega, was removed and replaced with the words ‘Elohim’ (El singular — god; Elohim plural — gods), ‘God’, ‘Adonay’ and ‘Lord’. El and Elohim are the titles given to fallen angels/false gods and their human wives (goddesses).
From the Interpreters Dictionary of the Bible, Volume 1, p. 817, we find the information that El or Elohim simply means demon.
A. In The OT. 1. Daimonism. a. Daimon. The Hebrew equivalent of ‘demon’ (daimon) in the original sense is simply or (‘elohim), commonly rendered ‘god’.
The words El-Elohim, like the words Baal-Adonay came from the Cannanite vocabulary and worship.
The Encyclopedia Judaica, Volume 7, p. 674, tells us:
Most of these terms were employed also by the Canaanites to designate their pagan gods. This is not surprising; since on settling in the Promised Land the Patriarchs and early Israelites made ‘the language of Canaan’ their own (Isaiah 19:18), the Hebrew language would naturally use the Canaanite vocabulary for terms designating their own Deity.
“I have heard what the prophets say, who prophesy lies in My Name, saying, ‘I have dreamed! I have dreamed!’ How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Yes, they are prophets of the deceit of their own minds. Who devise; plan and scheme, to cause My people to forget My Name through their dreams, which they tell every man to his neighbour, just as their fathers have forgotten My Name for Baal.” Jeremiah 23:25-27
The word Baal simply means Lord, as is shown in Unger’s Bible Dictionary, p. 665:
Lord (Hebrew Adon), an early word denoting ownership; hence, absolute control. It is not properly a (righteous) title… master; of kings, as the lords of their subjects. (4.) Lord. Master, (Greek Kurios) Supreme… (5.) Baal (Master) (As noted above it means Lord) — applied only to heathen deities (gods), or to man as husband, etc…
Baal: Common Canaanite word for master, lord, was one of the chief main deities of the Canaanite Pantheon, now well known from the religious epic literature discovered at Ras Shamra (an Ugarit of the Amarna Letters) from 1921-1937. — Unger’s Bible Dictionary p. 413
YAHWEH, the proper Name of the God of Israel; it is composed of four consonants (YHWH) in Hebrew and is therefore called the Tetragrammaton… — Encyclopedia Britannica, Volume 23, p. 867
The Prophet Jeremiah warned that this practice of removing Yahweh’s Name would be handed down to us from the unfaithful priests, interpreters and scribes, when the Hebrew Scriptures were first translated to Greek, then to Latin, and finally to English (see The Great Deception).
“How can you say, ‘We are wise, for we have the law of Yahweh, when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?” Jeremiah 8:8
‘Lord’ became synonymous with our Creator and our Messiah, Yahshua, but it has NOTHING to do with them. It’s all about the devil wanting to be God and worshipped as Him.
Lord is traditionally an appellation for a person or deity who has authority, control or power over others; a master, chief or ruler. In only a few cases is ‘lord’ a formal title in itself; more generally, lord is a generic term applied, for example, to people who hold a title of the peerage in the United Kingdom of Great Britain, or are entitled to courtesy titles, or to refer to a group or body of peers.
(It is no surprise that the nobility of Britain use Satan’s title to address each other, as the British royals are descendants of the nobility of Europe, the Canaanite tribe from which the Anti-Messiah will come (see Pagan gods, The Bell and the Pound (£) sign and Prince George of Cambridge — the Anti-Messiah is born.)
The word ‘lord’ is also used in the halls of justice.
In the nineteenth century, milord (also milor) was well known as a word that continental Europeans (especially French) whose jobs often brought them into contact with travellers (innkeepers, guides, etc), commonly used to address Englishmen or male English-speakers who seemed to be upper class (or whom they wished to flatter).
However, the English language phrase ‘my lord’ (the source of ‘milord’) played a somewhat minor role in the British system of honorific forms of address, and most of those addresses as ‘milord’ were not, in fact, proper ‘lords’ (members of the nobility) at all.
In Greece, the equivalent was O Lordos. Lord Byron was known as ‘O Lordos’ (The Lord) or ‘Lordos Veeron’ (as the Greeks pronounce it), causing things as varied as hotels, ships, cricket teams, roads and even suburbs to be called ‘Lord Byron’ today.
Milord (in this use generally pronounced as, and sometimes written as ‘M’lud) is commonly perceived to be used by English barristers (lawyers who appeared in court), accused and witnessed when addressing the judge adjucating in the trial. However, it is a pronunciation which is now obsolete and no longer heard in court. The modern pronunciation is ‘My Lord’, also used in courts of countries that are former colonies of Britain.
Judges and barristers also wear white wigs during court proceedings:
Until 2008… all judges wore a short bench wig when working in criminal court…
Before autumn 2008, when dealing with first-instance criminal dealings in the winter, a High Court Judge of the Queen’s Bench Division wore a scarlet robe with fur facings, a black scarf and girdle (waistband) and a scarlet casting-hood or trippet. When dealing with criminal business in the summer, the judge wore a similar scarlet robe, but with silk rather than fur facings. In both cases the judge wore a wing collar, bangs and a short wig.
Satan, the master of disguise, wants to be ‘like the Most High’ and copies Yahweh and Yahshua, as is represented by these court appointees — judges appointed by man, not by Yahweh the Ultimate Judge, and who pass judgement without His approval — with scarlet robes and hair ‘white like wool’:
“And among the seven lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to His Feet and with a golden sash around His Chest. The Hair on His Head was white like wool, as white as snow, and His Eyes were like blazing fire. His Feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and His Voice was like the sound of rushing waters.” Revelation 1:13-15
“As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took His Seat. His Clothing was white as snow; the Hair of His Head was white like wool; His Throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze.” Daniel 7:9
“Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with His Garments dipped in blood? Who is this, robed in splendour, striding forward in the greatness of His strength? ‘It is I, proclaiming victory, mighty to save.’ ‘Why are Your Garments red, like those of one treading the winepress?’ ‘I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with Me. I trampled them in My anger and trod them down in My passion, their blood spattered My Garments, and I stained all My Clothing.’” Isaiah 63:1-3
“I saw heaven standing open, and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice He judges and wages war. His Eyes are like blazing fire, and on His Head are many crowns; He has a Name written on Him that no one knows but He Himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His Name is the Word of Yahweh.” Revelation 19:11-13
The word ‘lord’ is also present in music (see The Music Man), where the mind control slaves we call celebrities praise their master by constantly proclaiming his name (see Monarch slaves).
There are also several establishments that have the name ‘lord’ in their names.
