The Arrivals part 1: Proof from the Holy Quran

In this video there is a passage from the Quran that states how Satan fights against man. I will point out a Scripture from the Bible that indicates God’s plan to punish Satan for his pride:

1 The word of the LORD came to me again, saying, 2 “Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD:

Because your heart is lifted up, 
      And you say, ‘I am a god,
I sit in the seat of gods,
In the midst of the seas,’
Yet you are a man, and not a god,
Though you set your heart as the heart of a god
3 (Behold, you are wiser than Daniel!
There is no secret that can be hidden from you!
4 With your wisdom and your understanding
You have gained riches for yourself,
And gathered gold and silver into your treasuries;
5 By your great wisdom in trade you have increased your riches,
  And your heart is lifted up because of your riches),”

6 ‘Therefore thus says the Lord GOD:

Because you have set your heart as the heart of a god,
7 Behold, therefore, I will bring strangers against you,
The most terrible of the nations;
And they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom,
And defile your splendor.
8 They shall throw you down into the Pit,
And you shall die the death of the slain
In the midst of the seas.
9 “ Will you still say before him who slays you,

‘ I am a god’?
But you shall be a man, and not a god,
In the hand of him who slays you.
10 You shall die the death of the uncircumcised
By the hand of aliens;
For I have spoken,” says the Lord GOD.’”

verses 7-10 are very strong words! It goes to show that God does not entertain or tolerate pride in any way whatsoever! Tyre or sometimes rendered “Tyrus” is a Hebrew word that is “tsore or tsowr” meaning stone. The idea is that Satan is trying to portray himself as a rock but obviously Jesus is our only Rock, that is our Source, for everything.

Whenever the Bible repeats something it indicates the theme in that chapter which plays a big role in the purpose of a book.
