Lucifer An angel of music

Lucifer is a fallen angel who was the head of the ministry of music in Heaven when he was in heaven. It has been said of him he was the most beautiful of ALL angels and he was the director of the flow of music there (Praise and Worship).

Of course, now he no longer is….. but there are several scriptural references throughout the bible the denote his previous authority over music when he was in heaven. One is Isa.14:11 – “Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.”

This verse right here is speaking of his fall from heaven, and how all of the glory he had, and the gifts he had fell with him. The noise of thy viols indicates the stringed instruments he had charge over. But yes, actually throughout the bible in passages in the books of Ezekiel, Job, Isaiah, even Psalms upon speaking of his past life…it tells us he was the minister of music there. Of course he no longer is now though.

Lucifer means morning star.

Job 38:7 – When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy

Lucifer was basically a walking talking musical instrument.

Ezekiel 28:13 – Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: THE WORKMANSHIP OF THY TIMBRELS AND OF THY PIPES WAS PREPARED IN THE DAY THAT THOU WAST CREATED.

14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering CHERUB, from the midst of the stones of fire.

These were the same words that were spoken of lucifer in

Isaiah 14:11-14 (11 All your pomp has been brought down to the grave, along with the NOISE OF YOUR HARPS; maggots are spread out beneath you and worms cover you.)-(New International Version)

King James Version
12 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!

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee


The Seraphim (singular “Seraph”), mentioned in Isaiah 6:1-7 , serve as the caretakers of God’s throne and continuously singing his praises: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts. All the earth is filled with His Glory.” It is said that they surround the throne of God, singing the music of the spheres and regulating the movement of the heavens as it emanates from God. It is also said that such a bright light emanates from them that nothing, not even other divine beings, can look upon them. It is said that there are four of them surrounding God’s throne, where they burn eternally from love and zeal for God.

The Seraphim have six wings; two covering their face, two covering their feet, and two that they fly with.

Unlike other Seraphim who had six wings, Lucifer was featured to have twelve wings.


The Cherubim (singular “Cherub”) are beyond the throne of God; they are the guardians of light and of the stars. It is believed that, although they are removed from man’s plane of reality, the divine light that they filter down from Heaven still touches the lives of living things.

They have four faces: one of a man, ox, lion, and eagle. The ox-face is considered the “true face”, as later on in Ezekiel the ox’s face is called a cherub’s face (Chapter 10). They have eight conjoined wings covered with eyes, and they have ox’s feet.

Cherubim are considered the elect beings for the purpose of protection. Cherubim guard Eden and the throne of God.

Their rank among angels is uncertain but they are always categorized in the First Sphere. Some believe them to be an order or class of angels; others hold them to be a class of heavenly beings higher than angels. Cherubim are said to have perfect knowledge of God, surpassed only by the love of the Seraphim.

The Cherubim are mentioned in Genesis 3:24 ; Ezekiel 10:17-20 ; and 1 Kings 6:23-28.

Since Lucifer/beelzebub seemed to have been greater than the other beings, he is thought to be the chief of music.


So it is obvious that Lucifer, at the very least, contained something akin to musical instruments – the tambourine, the flute, and the harp all within the confines of his own body. Since Lucifer is a created being, he was originally created with instruments to provide beautiful music for none other than the glorification of God. Lucifer, being the most authoritative and superior angel that he was, at best, was also probably the angel of music.

The point of this study is to see, purely from a theological view, if in fact Satan has a connection with and a direct influence on music, which has become undoubtedly clear that he does. We must remember that some, not all music, can come from evil sources no matter how lovely, beautiful or pleasing it may sound to the ears. For we know that the devil can masquerade as an angel of light (II Corinthians 11:14). Music, I believe, has a twofold purpose. To glorify God or not, it’s as simple as that. As we have seen, music was initially created for that purpose up until Satan’s rebellion. What he has done with music from that point on becomes a whole other issue.

I had myself quite an impressive CD collection of music ranging from punk rock to disco, alternative music to mainstream pop, new wave to industrial techno music. Often times, I provided my music to local nightclubs and often DJ’d at parties and get-togethers. This was music that I believe was heavily influenced by Satan. The lyrics to most of these songs are not worth repeating. Some of which spoke of and glorified violence, sex, drunkenness, drugs, etc. Then one day I came across an intriguing Christian video speaking out about the Satanic influences of music in our pop-culture today. The video spoke about how today’s ungodly music, worms it’s way into our homes, our cars, and ultimately influencing our hearts and minds. There have even been scientific studies proving the fact that music severely influences our psyche and the outcome of our behavior is contingent upon the type of music we choose to listen to. It was shortly after this discovery that I was led to rid myself of this music that I had in my possession. Imagine burning over 200 CD’s!!!

On the other side of this issue, I wish to clarify that there is plenty of godly and praiseworthy music worth mentioning that exists within our society, music from artists whose sole purpose is to honor and glorify God with talent that the Lord has endowed them with. Not all music, secular or not, is inherently evil. Just as Satan has an influence on music, so God has His influence on music as well, and even more so. It has been a historically proven fact that Christ has been the subject of more songs, music, stories, poetry, prose, screenplays, literature, art, etc. than any other subject in the history of mankind.

Christ has been the influencing source behind such famous and talented musical artists as: Michael W. Smith, Don Moen, Chris Tomlin, Twila Paris, Handel, Bach, Pachelbel, John and Charles Wesley, Rich Mullins, and many others, not to mention the many talented worship teams that exist within the Body of Christ. As with anything in life, it is up to our own discretion and spiritual discernment to decide what is and is not appropriate for our listening pleasure. It is also up to us as parents to set standards and to monitor what our kids are listening to. What goes in the body is what comes out through the way in which we live our lives.

He went on: “What comes out of a man is what makes him `unclean.’ For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery. – (Mark 7:20-21)

So ask yourself, “Do I know what kind of music I’m listening to?”

Better yet, “Do I know what kind of music my kids are listening to?”

  1. Cool! Andie said it best. Thanks Andie. And as for who ever put this up. I’m not sure your right about it all. But I believe he uses people just like God and they don’t even know it!

  2. You can tell good music from bad by the beat. If it’s a 4/4 beat, it’s good. If it’s syncapated beat, it’s definitely not good because this beat takes our energies down to a base nature – a low, completely sexual and nasty nature, one that isn’t in God. The lyrics also play an important part on the energy we are taking into our entire consciousness, being and world. Music either makes us reach for the heavens or descend to the low depths of the astral. This syncapated beat music also enters our chakras and steals the light from them. The chakras are then filled destructive, downward energy creating any harmful momentums in us. Go to for more information on the effects of music on our being.

  5. Why was Satan a cherub and not seraphim as I know cherub guards whilst seraphim praises God throne. I also knew seraphim are higher than cherub but it was said Satan was highest ranking angel. Secondly why Satan having 12 wings. Pls I need your help here

  6. Well… The Lucifer you refer to in Isaiah 14 is a translation taken from the Latin Vulgate. Not the Original Text. Google it.

    If you read Isaiah 14 in context from the beginning of the chapter, you will see that the “taunt” being taken up is not with an angelic being, but rather with “the King of Babylon”.

    Here is some good reading on why you need to study in context and have an understanding of history and how translations came about.

    God Bless

  7. Regarding subliminal music, the frequency we do it in, the control of sound and the intentions of those who control media, is very much controlled by the Military Industrial Complex. I recommend the book by Dr. Leonard Horowitz, titled “The Book of 528, the Key of Love” or link: Healthy World Note that I didn’t say World Health Organization. Chapter 2 “528, John Lennon and the church of satan and Chapter 4 “Musicial Cult control Through A=440Hz’Standard Tuning’ explains much about media and music.

  8. The god of Music in our world is Satan/Lucifer.
    Two references in the Bible, to Lucifer/Satan being the musician/worship leader in Heaven, before his fall, are in
    Ezekiel 28:12-17 and
    Isaiah 14:12-14.
    This could explain why and how, throughout history, popular music has been so important and entrenched into our culture and society.
    Ask yourself how important “your” music is to you and think back in your life to how that music influenced and guided you.
    If Satan and his demons are committed to destroying you by keeping you away from Jesus Christ and His Eternal Home in Heaven, and Satan/Lucifer was created as a Musician, wouldn’t it seem logical that he would use music as his biggest weapon against mankind?
    As children of the One True Lord God; Jesus Christ, we must be awake and aware always to the tricks and traps of our enemy; Satan, and avoid any and all influences from him, including the two most powerful tools in his toolbox; the visual transmissions from TV, movies, video games, magazines, and the internet, and audio transmissions from the airwaves, in your home, work, car, shopping, etc…, to protect our minds from the enemy, for everything we say and do, start in our minds, as thoughts, and enter our hearts as emotions that grow into desires, that can lead to words spoken that become actions.
    Our thoughts are created from everything we see and hear, from everything and everyone around us, either good or bad, positive or negative, and from these thoughts we become who we are.
    Guard and protect your mind from everything evil and negative, and allow only good and positive things to enter into your heart and mind, through your eyes and ears.
    Take everything that is good, embrace it, leave the bad behind, and keep moving foreword in your life journey.
    Peace and Maranatha.

  9. Nope… from all verses quoted the is no mention of satan being a musician or leader of music in heaven as scripture must be kept in Context and not interpreted

  10. Andie, regarding your comment from November 30th 2010 I would very much like to commend you for an excellent contribution. Your statement was not only well written but also very “matter of fact” and you made your point without compromise yet maintained a respectful approach. Well done. For the record, 7 years from your post there is NOW no arguement whatsoever to the fact that Satans influences have been saturating the music scene more in recent times than ever in history. As IRON MAIDEN put in their lyrics….”he knows his time is short” so clearly he has cranked things up a notch (pardon the pun) lol

  11. you need to used only the authorized king james if you want to prove any facts about the bible. the paraphrased bibles are only satans

  12. Angel of music is Gabriel. Has been seen as male or female or otherwise, Gabriel is my Angel of protection and my guide.


  14. Redemption is very unique and foreign to the host of angelic beings created by God. They must look unto fallen man to learn of God’s redemption for there was none offered to the angels that fell from heaven.

    There was no iniquity in heaven until it was found in Lucifer and no atonement provided by God. Lucifer and 1/3 of the angelic host that fell from heaven were provided no way of repentance not being made in the image of God.

    The angelic host were independent beings and those that fell were not tested like man but rather on their own rose up against their Creator through iniquity. This was trafficked throughout heaven until they were finally cast out unto the inhabitants of the earth were there is a continued angelic conflict raging in the atmosphere (air) where Satan reigns as prince and power.

  15. Ezekiel 28 refers to the king of Tyre, Isaiah refers to the King of Babylon.

    Easy to twist the facts when you quote out of context, isn’t it?

  16. Let God be The Truth and every man a lie. Meaning that man’s thinking can be altered by pride and selfish ambitions. The debate about Satan should be the same. He’s the enemy. He comes only to kill, steal, and to destroy. Whether or not he was the the musical host, had 12 wings, or anything is drawing us closer to God. The are only illustrations to prove in fact that he was there and had certain responsibilities. As he’s exposed through scripture, it’s an outlet for the people to know what we’re dealing with. Humility isn’t just outward. It’s inward. So be quick to listen and slow to speak. As long as we agree that Jesus is Lord. The mediocre debates only cause schism. God bless

  17. Are there not other sources than the Bible to which knowledge can be revealed ? Historical teaching has been handed down through the ages and not all revealed in the Bible. Other sources convey in detail what curious minds desire to uncover. So who has found more detail concerning the roles of Lucifer in Heaven and what he became after being cast out. Is it not fascinating to say the least about divine creation? Where is this knowledge now ?

  18. It’s nice to hear about Gabriel being the minister of music in heaven, and then not giving a biblical reference.

  19. There is not one Bible verse saying Lucifer is THE angel of music or minister over worship/worship music in heaven. Nor do the Bible verses provided point to that. Now, from the verses provided, I would potentially infer he was musically talented or involved in music & musical worship in heaven, possibly. But it’s dangerous to add or subtract from the word of God- such as inferring TOO MUCH based on such little information. Him being called THE angel of music or THE minister over worship music in heaven is, perhaps, giving him too much credit. I’m sure he would like us to give him too much credit- but let’s give credit where credit is due. And credit is certainly not due to Satan.
