Five-fold Reference to the Devil:

Satanic Evil and Influence on Earth and of Men (5)

 Five (5) is an imperfect, uneven or ‘odd’ number. There are no multiples of other numbers that lead to five (5). The five (5) “I Will” statements of Lucifer (Isaiah 14:13-14) reflect his deception and boastful ego … or ‘PRIDE’ (pride is made up of five letters). Satan’s ‘PRIDE’ is manifest throughout Revelation, in a number of counterfeit entities that mimic what God, the Father, has done through his only begotten son, Jesus Christ. John the Apostle’s Revelation of Jesus Christ, treats the dragon/serpent, Satan/Devil with the number five (5), to represent his characteristics, actions, behavior, power and influence over mankind and the nations. Five (5) is a number that is NOT divisible into any of God’s divine numbers.

Commentary: Three lowercase (d)evil, two uppercase (D)evil. The distinction is important. When the term is capitalized, it refers to a name or title. Devil (capitalized twice) is the name of the evil one, devil (lower case, three times) is a descriptive reference to the evil one. D(d)evil is the only term that is used interchangeably as a name and also as a descriptive reference. God’s word is so precise, logical and mathematically arranged that even the use of capitalization and the sequencing of a name/description has meaning within meaning. In the use of the word ‘D(d)evil’; the first instance of it being used is in Rev. 2:10 and is not capitalized and is represented with a small ‘d’. Every following instance of this word alternates between the capital ‘D’ and the lowercase ‘d’, as such; d – D –d – D – d.  When referencing the evil one, the Word of God alternates, in exact sequence, to the name of the evil one and a description of the evil one. Consider the ordering or context describing the evil one. He is described as casting individual Christians into prison, next he is described as deceiving nations, next he is kicked out of heaven and has great wrath, then he is bound in prison for 1,000 years, lastly he is cast into the lake of fire and brimstone. These verses quickly summarize the actions and results of the angel once known as Lucifer. God is in control and through the word of His Holy Spirit, informs us that Satan/Devil will end up in the lake of fire and brimstone.
