SUNSET OF SIN by ForestHymn SUNSET OF SIN by ForestHymn
:bulletyellow: “How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’
Yet you shall be brought down to the grave,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.

“Those who see you will gaze at you,
And consider you, saying:
‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
Who shook kingdoms,
Who made the world as a wilderness
And destroyed its cities,
Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’

“All the kings of the nations,
All of them, sleep in glory,
Everyone in his own house;
But you are cast out of your grave
Like an abominable branch..."

-Isaiah 14:12-19

:bulletyellow: “You were the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The sardius, topaz, and diamond,
Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
Till iniquity was found in you ....

... Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your brightness...

Therefore I will bring forth a fire from your midst;
It will devour you,
And I will bring you to ashes upon the earth
In the sight of all who see you.
All who know you among the peoples will be
astonished at you;
You will be a terror,
And never will you be any more."

-Ezekiel 28:13-19

:bulletblue: "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes;
there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.
There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.”
And He said to me, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”

-Revelation 21:4-5

:bulletblue: "For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on the Lord,
They shall inherit the earth.
For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it shall be no more.
But the meek shall inherit the earth,
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace."

-Psalm 37:10-11

Greetings,

Marvelous conceptualization. I am pleased you included the BIblical verses which are so appropriate . . . and especially the one which gives me the most comfort . . .

"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes;
there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.
There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.”
And He said to me, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”

- Revelation 21:4-5

Warm regards,
Michael C. Turner

Nice touch with the clouds. They create a great visual echo for the wings that also lead the eye back to our main subject. The choice of colors and time of day also work well with this piece as the tones chosen traditionally make one uneasy and are equated with evil, but our subject is not something typically seen as evil so it's a great juxtaposition. The title is befitting.

Wow, thank you for your observations! I hadn't even noticed the visual repetition on the clouds until you mentioned it, it's true..
It's interesting how the brain can generate these things subconsciously and have it work out in the end..
Thanks for the analysis, this helps plan out elements in future pieces! :D

If I remember correctly, the four living creatures, which are at one point called cherubim, have 4 wings. So-
If those living creatures refer to angels, and if Lucifer was that specific type, then I got the number of wings wrong...

However, if the Seraphim spoken of in Isaiah 6:1-3 are supposed to be covering cherubim (They are
said to be on either side of the Throne of God, (like the covering cherubim on either side of the Ark of the Covenant's Mercy Seat)
Then Lucifer would have had 6 wings. I know Lucifer was a covering cherubim, according to: (Isaiah 28:14)
So it's either 4 or 6 wings. : )

Yes.. indeed... who could have known back then what would be the result of all this?
Only God, but He needed to let this run its course.. or His creatures could have never understood
the true, self-destructive nature of sin...
I bet if God had destroyed Lucifer when the rebellion first started, maybe God's creatures would
have obeyed Him from fear? Instead of love... Now everyone can see the deceiver, satan, unmasked...
especially at the cross.

That in his hand is supposed to be sand/dust, spilling/blowing from his hands (symbolizing that his usurpation of Earth is over,
and also the destruction that has been the result of his own work, the true results of sin)
