Before the creation of the world Lucifer, whose name means Light Giver and who was the most powerful of God's angels, wanted to take God's place. He rebelled. In the fifth century B.C., Imanishs, the most powerful general in King Artexerxes' Persian army, lusted after the Persian throne. He rebelled too. Watching over it all was the Angel of Death, to bring about God's judgment on these two.
