POSSESSION OF THE EARTH BY SATAN
LUCIFER, THE FORGOTTEN THAT IT WAS A CREATION OF GOD AND THAT BECAME SATAN
POSSESSION OF THE EARTH BY SATAN
Lucifer is extremely powerful. It was created by God with great powers. And when he was cast out of heaven, he kept much of his powers. Being a creature of God, he is below God but as I already said, it is very powerful. Do not forget he was the first angel, the most beautiful, the most respected, but that he has gone to his head. Satan exists and works very hard to break as many people as possible. Everything that is wrong will. God lets him with a certain limit, but the leaves do for now. It is arrogant, liar, deceiver, fake, hypocritical, treacherous, selfish, influential, tempter, etc..
Where sin begins there? With the devil. It's in the Bible? I John 3:8 (NIV): "He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared was to destroy? Works of the devil. "
Since when the hell did he was a murderer and a liar? The answer is in the Bible? John 8:44 (NIV): "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar and the father of lies. "
Where did Satan? The answer is in the Bible? Apocalypse 12:7-9 (NIV): "And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought, but they were not the strongest, and their place found any more in heaven. And he was cast, the great dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. "
Satan was created it sinful? No, he was created perfect, with freedom of choice. It's in the Bible? Ezekiel 28.15 (NIV): "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. "
How did it occur the fall of Satan? The answer is in the Bible? Ezekiel 28:17 (NIV): "Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I throw you to the ground, I'll book a show to kings. "
Satan called Lucifer before he sins, would be equal to God. It's in the Bible? Isaiah 14:12-14 (NIV): "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! You're down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars 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. "
In contrast to the pride and self-exaltation expressed by Satan, what spirit did Jesus show it? The answer is in the Bible? Philippians 2:6-8 (NIV): "Who, being in very nature God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, in the likeness of men: And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. "
Supernatural forces of Satan are at war. It's in the Bible? Ephesians 6.11 (NIV): "Put on the whole armor of God, be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. "
Satan dared to tempt Christ Himself. It's in the Bible? Matthew 4:1 (NIV): "Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. "
Satan is a defeated enemy. It's in the Bible? Jacques 4.7 (NIV): "Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you. "
How, why and when it was Satan cast out of heaven?
The fall of Satan is symbolically described in Isaiah 14: 12-14 and Ezekiel 28: 12-18. These two passages that speak specifically of the kings of Babylon and Tyre, also refer to the spiritual power behind those kings, that is to say, namely Satan. These texts tell us why Satan fell, but they do not mention precisely when this took place. We know this: the angels were created before the earth (Job 38: 4-7). Satan fell from heaven before tempt Adam and Eve in the Garden (Genesis 3: 1-14). Satan's fall occurred presumably after the creation of the angels and before he tempts Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden: how long before the temptation of Adam and Eve, the Scripture does not say we absolutely .
The book of Job tells us that, for a time at least, Satan still had access to heaven and to the throne of God: "But one day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them . The LORD said to Satan, 'Where do you come from?' And Satan answered the LORD: 'browse the earth and from walking up' "(Job 1: 6-7). Apparently so, at this time, Satan still moved freely between heaven and earth, God spoke directly to him and was aware of its activities. At what point God put it end to this possibility, it remains unknown.
Why does Satan fell from heaven? Satan fell from heaven because of his pride. He wanted to be God, and not a servant of God. Note the number of verbs in the future in Isaiah 14: 12-15. Ezekiel 28: 12-15 describes Satan as an exceedingly beautiful angel. Satan was somehow the highest angels, the most beautiful of all God's creations, but he was not satisfied with this position. Instead, Satan desired to be God, and it is very interesting that it is precisely the same temptation he gave to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3: 1-15). How he fell from the sky? In fact, the word fall is not an appropriate term. It would be much more accurate to say that God drove Satan out of heaven (Isaiah 14: 15, Ezekiel 28: 16-17). Satan "fell" not from heaven, but rather Satan "was pushed" out of the sky.

SA MULTITUDES OF DEMONS
They belong to the Devil. Demons belong to Satan, who is their governor. Jesus called "the Devil and his angels" Matthew 25: 41 Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels. The Greek word "diabolos (devil)" means "accuser" or "Slanderer." The words "diamon and diamonion" are both the singular and plural, and they can not be exchanged with "Diabolos", since there is only one diabolos, the devil. But there are several diamonion "or" diamon (demons).
MINDS WITHOUT BODY
Demons can call for reinforcements. (Matthew 12: 43-45) When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out, and when he cometh, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. It will be with this wicked generation.

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Coup D'Etat In Heaven: The Fall of Satan
ccc BY John Piper
Note: Even after the fall, God has continued to take care of men (Gen. 3.21, 5.45 Mt, Acts 14:16-17), wishing them happiness now and forever (Ezekiel 33:11, 2 Peter 3:9). The soul of man can not cease to exist and God has an extreme value.
Thus, sinners still enjoy many privileges granted by God, and those who repent and believe can find communion with their creator (2 Cor 5:19-21, 1 John 1:3).

2. The fall of Satan
This passage refers to the fall of Satan and reveals the cause: pride. Consequences:
Precipitated in the heavenly places (Ezekiel 28:16; Ez 6.12) becomes the deceiver of the whole world. (Rev 12:9)
It was held at the cross of Christ (John 12:31, Colossians 2:15) but can still act.
it will precipitate the heavenly places on earth in the near future (Rev 12.7-10,12);
It will be bound for a thousand years in the abyss during the reign of Christ (Revelation 20:1-3);
It will be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone for eternity (Revelation 20.10; Mt 25.41).
3. The person of Satan
Creature of God he does not have eternity, omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence.
4. The action of Satan against humanity
By virtue of its very nature, it is in a spirit of evil (cf. 2 Cor 6.15, "Belial" = evil) and is the source of evil on the earth (Gen 3:1-6, Rev. 12.9 ).
He is the agent of evil (Jn 13.2; Mt 13.38; Acts 5.3)
He is a liar (John 8:44) and cunning (Eph 6:11)
He disguises himself to fool (2 Cor 11.14) including making miracles (2 Thessalonians 2:9-10).
It seduces (Rev 12.9; 2 Cor 11.3)
He is a murderer (John 8:44;. Cf. 1 Jn 3.11-12)
It blinds the mind (2 Cor 4:4;. Cf. Eph 4:18)
It seeks to neutralize the action of the Word of God (Mark 4:15)
Satan resulted in his revolt and fall some celestial creatures (cf. Rev 12:7-9). These fallen angels are those who are held in prison (2 Peter 2:4; Jud 1.6) and those who have the freedom to act.
The demons are the agents of Satan (Luke 13.11-16), they are unclean, wicked, violent and seductive (10.1 Mt, 12.45 Mt, Mk 9.20, 1 Timothy 4.1).
There is an increased activity of demons in the end of time (2 Thess 2:9-10, Revelation 16:14)
The end of the fallen angels is to be "into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matthew 25:41).
Satan is even more vicious than ever. He knows that his days are numbered and he will fight a battle without a thank you. He believes he will win against God, because God does not tell him everything. And that is why the final battle will play out soon. He tries to put as many people as possible from the edge, to make it powerful. It will reach almost to its end, as much of the world's population will follow. But God is God and we all know (true Christians) that God will win. All those who believe in God will be hit harder by a spirit of error.
