Lucifer ( Hebrew: הֵילֵל, hēlēl, "shining one" Greek: Ἑωσφόρος, Heosphoros, "dawn-bearer"; Latin lucem ferre, "light-bringing") is a term in Christianity, that is applied to the Devil. Lucifer is the Septuagint translation of the Hebrew term "Helel ben Shaḥar" ("the shining one, son of the morning"), in the prophetic vision of Isaiah (14:12-14). The term Lucifer is used in the Vulgate (Latin lucifer, "light-bringing") and is applied to the morning star, Venus seen at dawn; it is also the KJV rendering of the Hebrew word hēlēl. After the name "Lucifer" became synonymous with the Devil in Christian culture, its use outside of the Bible was popularized in works such as Dante Alighieri's Inferno and John Milton's Paradise Lost. Metaphorically, the title Lucifer is applied to Jesus Christ himself.
Lucifer is just another name for Satan, who as head of the evil world-system is the real, though invisible, power behind the successive rulers of Tyre, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, and all of those evil rulers that we have seen come and go in the history of the world. This passage goes beyond human history and marks the beginning of sin in the universe and the very fall of Satan in the pristine, sinless spheres before the creation of man.
Lucifer, Satan and the Devil are three different names for the same angel. Lucifer refers to this angel when he lived in heaven.
The Devil (from Greek: διάβολος or diábolos = 'slanderer' or 'accuser') is believed in many religions and cultures to be a powerful, supernatural entity that is the personification of evil and the enemy of God and humankind. The nature of the role varies greatly. It ranges from being an effective opposite force to the creator god at one extreme, where both are locked in an eons long holy war for human souls on what may seem even terms (to the point of dualistic ditheism/bitheism), to being just a comical figure of fun or even an abstract aspect of the individual human condition at the other.
Whilst mainstream Judaism contains no overt concept of a devil, Christianity and Islam have variously regarded the Devil as a rebellious fallen angel or demon that tempts humans to sin, if not commit evil deeds himself. In these religions – particularly during periods of division or external threat – the Devil has assumed more of a dualistic status commonly associated with heretics, infidels, and other unbelievers.
As such, the Devil is seen as an allegory that represents a crisis of faith, individualism, free will, wisdom and enlightenment.
In mainstream Christianity, God and the Devil are usually portrayed as fighting over the souls of humans, with the Devil seeking to lure people away from God and into Hell. The Devil commands a force of evil spirits, commonly known as demons. The Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament) describes the Adversary (Ha-satan) as an angel who instigates tests upon humankind.
Many other religions have a trickster or tempter figure that is similar to the Devil. Modern conceptions of the Devil include the concept that it symbolizes humans' own lower nature or sinfulness.
People often put the concept of the Devil to use in social and political conflicts, claiming that their opponents are influenced by the Devil or even willingly supporting the Devil. In addition, the Devil has also been used to explain why others hold beliefs that are considered to be false and ungodly.
