The fifteenth arcanum of the Tarot is Passion, also called "The Devil," and relates to our ego and the means to eliminate it. Central to that process is Lucifer ("Bearer of Light"), also known as Prometheus, Mefisopheles, Mara, etc. Divinity sends Lucifer to tempt those who want to reach perfection, as seen in the stories of Jesus, Job, Buddha, etc. Lucifer is the serpent made by Jehovah Elohim in order to tempt Adam and Eve through sex. 

"How art thou fallen from heaven, (הילל בן שחר Hilel ben Shachar) praised one, son of the dawn! how are thou cut down to the Earth, to become weak among the Goyim! And thou has said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of (El ) אל God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; אדמה Adamah will be as the most High. But first thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit (the ninth sphere)." -Isaiah 14: 12-15
