So you want to know about Satan? Well, I could write a book about this wicked one, as he is called in 1 Jhn.5:18. The best place to start is to look in Ezekiel 28:13-15 ..You have been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the sardius, topaz, diamond, beryl, onyx,jasper,sapphire, emerald, carbuncle, and gold.; the workmanship of your settings and of your pipes was prepared in the day that you were created.{ he is a created being of God} You are the anointed chereb: {high ranking angel} that covers; and I{God} have set you so.{ made you this way}, you were upon the holy mountain of God; you walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, till iniquity was found in you.

Because of the iniquity {sin} found in him, Isaiah 14:12-15 says; How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer{ his created name}, son of the morning! How are you cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations! For you said in your heart, I will ascend into the heavens, I will exalt my throne above the stars { another name for angels} of 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; I will be like the Most High. {But God says}
. Yet you shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. Jesus said in Luke 10:18 “I beheld, seen Satan fallen as lighten from heaven,”

Lucifer was created a high ranking angel, but because of his rebellion against God he was removed from his position, to put it mildly. He is called Satan because he is humanity’s adversary, the word Satan means, adversary. In Job 1:6 we read: Now there was a day when the sons of God {angels of God} came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came with them. This verse of scripture lets us know that God allows Satan to have access to His presence. One of the reasons being that Satan is no threat to God. He created him and He can destroy him at any time. God is also all knowing, so He knows what Satan is think even before the thought comes to his mind..

God allows him to continue on the earth because he drives some people to God. Satan often try to destroy people, only to have God save them and get the glory for the good that comes from His mighty hand. We are told in Revelation 20:1-3 that after the great tribulation, an angel is going to come from heaven having the key to the bottomless pit, he will take hold of the dragon, that old serpent, the Devil, also called Satan, the angel will cast Satan into the bottomless pit for a thousand years, {Christ will rule on earth during this 1000 year period of time.} After the 1000 years are complete, Satan will be loosed for a short period of time in which he will lunch one last rebellion using some of humanity. Fire will fall from heaven destroy the rebellious and Satan will be cast into the lake of fire and there he will remain for all eternity. Praise God.
