An impostor is defined as "someone who assumes a character for the purpose of deception." That is also the Biblical definition of Satan - and those who, knowingly or not, serve the devil.
"11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV)
"Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness"
There is an old saying that beauty can be deceptive. In Satan's case, beauty was the root of his corruption - and, as stated in the verses quoted above, of his deception ever since (including many of the so-called "Jesus pictures" - artwork that comes far closer to the Bible's description of Satan than of Christ - see What Did Jesus Look Like?).
"28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
