Where in the Bible does it say that Lucifer is an angel?
Of what nature is Satan?

Most people refer to the following scripture as support for the fact that Satan was an angel, but I do not see that explicitly stated.

Isaiah 14:12-14 "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: . . . I will be like the most High."

So my question is is Lucifer Satan? Was Satan an Angel?
