Do you know that the devil actually looks beautiful?

Do you know that the devil actually looks beautiful?

Ezekiel 28:12
“You [d]had the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

How can the devil be beautiful?

This is a thought that comes to my mind recently. Shouldn't the devil look hideous like a monster?

So I went further in search of the bible and look what I found.

Interestingly the bible describes the devil as beautiful. Before the fall of Satan, his name is morning star.

He was an angel created by God.

God has created all his angles perfect without blemish having an imperishable body.

And it make sense that angels are beautiful because of the perfect body they process.

Imagine a system that is perfect. Your face wouldn't have any pimple or wrinkle or any symptom of aging. You look beautiful ! (Now guys I know what you are thinking.. Beautiful.. yuck.. that's for woman. Beautiful here means of a very high standard;excellent. Handsome is an understatement)

Upon the day of resurrection the elect will be given an imperishable body too like that of Jesus and the angels.

Do you know that God created us only a little lower than himself or the angels!

Psalm 8:4-5
(H)What is man that You [e]take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
5 Yet You have made him a (I)little lower than [f]God,
And (J)You crown him with (K)glory and majesty!


Ezekiel 28:12 
(Talking about the Satan before his fall. The bible describe him as perfect in beauty)
“You [d]had the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

Ezekiel 28:15-17
(Talking about how pride lead Satan to his fall)
“You were (I)blameless in your ways
From the day you were created
Until (J)unrighteousness was found in you.
16 “By the (K)abundance of your trade
[e]You were internally (L)filled with violence,
And you sinned;
Therefore I have cast you as profane
From the mountain of God.
And I have destroyed you, O [f]covering cherub,
From the midst of the stones of fire.
17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your (M)beauty;
You (N)corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor.
I cast you to the ground;

1 Corinthians 15:51
(During the resurrection the elect will be given an imperishable body like that of an angel)
Behold, I tell you a (BY)mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be (BZ)changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for (CA)the trumpet will sound, and (CB)the dead will be raised [r]imperishable, and (CC)we will be changed. 53 For this [s]perishable must put on [t](CD)the imperishable, and this (CE)mortal must put on immortality.

John 20:27-28
(Jesus resurrected with an imperishable body)
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
27 Then He *said to Thomas, “(A)Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.” 28 Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

Isaiah 53:2-5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
(Before the resurrection, Jesus have suffer so much from the affliction that His countenance is such that man are not attracted to Him)
For He grew up before Him like a (A)tender [a]shoot,
And like a root out of parched ground;
He has (B)no stately form or majesty
That we should look upon Him,
Nor appearance that we should [b]be attracted to Him.
He was (C)despised and forsaken of men,
A man of [c]sorrows and (D)acquainted with [d]grief;
And like one from whom men hide their face
He was (E)despised, and we did not (F)esteem Him.
Surely our [e]griefs He Himself (G)bore,
And our [f]sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
[g]Smitten of (H)God, and afflicted.
But He was [h]pierced through for (I)our transgressions,
He was crushed for (J)our iniquities;
The (K)chastening for our [i]well-being fell upon Him,
And by (L)His scourging we are healed.

John 20:14-15 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
(Jesue was so beautiful after the resurrection even Mary can't recognise him)
14 When she had said this, she turned around and *(A)saw Jesus standing there, and (B)did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus *said to her, (C)Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”

Supposing Him to be the gardener (This is John's interpretation I believe. John thought Mary saw a garderner that why she can't recognise Jesus), she *said to Him, “Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away.”

Luke 20:35-36 (In heaven the elect will be like angels)
but those who are considered worthy to attain to (B)that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; 36 for they cannot even die anymore, because they are like angels, and are (C)sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

Philippians 3:21 New Living Translation (NLT)
21 He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.
