“My noble citizens, because you value freedom, I implore you to listen carefully to the words of the Great Liberator.” With that, Prince Yaván stepped to the back of the platform. His words were already sinking in and taking effect, like venom.
Lucifer came to the front of the platform and looked out at the people, gauging their response. “They are ready to be harvested,” he communicated telepathically to Prince Yaván. “You have prepared them well.”
Lucifer stood silent, letting the anticipation of his words build. The crowd stood mesmerized by his stunning glory and apparent strength. It seemed obvious that their Liberator had come.
“Tell us how to be free!” someone from the crowd finally shouted out. The villagers roared with enthusiasm. Ben was awestruck by the shining ones and the excitement of the crowd.
“Shortly after the creation of your race,” Lucifer began methodically, “I realized that Adonai had proposed,” he paused briefly, “an…unbalanced constitution. He required that the older should serve the younger, the stronger should serve the weaker, that you must love your enemy, the first had to be last and the last first, and he who would be the greatest had to be the servant of all.”
“I have fought since the beginning to restore balance to the cosmos. Adonai created me first, as the greatest, wisest, and most glorious of all of his creatures. I have been fighting for your freedom ever since.”
“That which Adonai advocates is upside down. However, since I was able to grasp the concept, I have no fear that you, lovers of wisdom, like your forefathers before you, will be able to grasp it, as well.” Lucifer smirked inwardly at his cunning tongue.
