Oddly, the KJV names the temporary god of this world as Lucifer. Lucifer is an Italian word inserted by translators for the Hebrew word Heylel, which appears to be one of Satan’s names. Heylel is defined in Strong’s Dictionary as morning star, shining one, light-bearer, and oddly Lucifer. Typically the “el” suffix indicates an angelic name as in Michael or Gabriel.
Heylel in part derives from Halal meaning to shine, boast, be praiseworthy, and to act like a madman. Understanding the meaning of Halal helps to explain the actions of the rebellious Satan when he bragged that he would raise his throne above the stars of God to be like God, just as the Babel/Babylon incarnations of beast empires did and will do in the end times with Antichrist.
Heylel, after his fall from grace and heaven, and after his failed angelic rebellion was degraded by God to Satan status: an accuser, adversary, attacker, and archenemy of good, God, and humans as depicted in the book of Job and throughout the Old and New Testament. Isaiah 14:15 seems to indicate Heylel was degraded to Satan status at the time of his prehistoric fall and edict for his fate. It follows then that the Word who became Jesus stated, “He beheld Satan as lightening fall from heaven,” identifying Heylel’s newly degraded Satan status, whereby his realm of rule was thereafter restricted to the earth to and to the underworld.
Heylel’s fate was set as the chief satan, a role Satan was sentenced to play out for a specific period known only by God. After ha Satan’s reign of terror over the earth as chief accuser and deceiver of humankind, ha Satan willbe sent to the abyss at the end of this age for a thousand years—thesame place the impassioned and most evil of the Naphalim were sent.
