2Cr 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.


Now the serpent was more subtil [cleaver, crafty, prudent] than any ‘beast’ of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?…Genesis 3:1

{This is the first place that the “serpent” is mentioned in the Word of God. We know by scripture that the serpent is Satan…}

And he Michael laid hold on the “dragon” that “old Serpent”, which is the “Devil”, and “Satan”, and bound him a thousand years….Rev. 20:2

{Serpent, beast of the field, Satan, Dragon, and Devil}

We know now that Satan is the serpent in the beginning. But was Satan created evil?? Was he created at the “beginning” to be evil or good? Lets see…

God created the heaven and earth….Gen. 1:1

And the earth was without form, and void, and “darkness” was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters….Gen. 1:2

{ Notice.. God created the heavens and earth, the earth was without form and void, vs.2, tells us that “darkness” was upon the face of the deep. Now who made this darkness? God had to make the darkness as well as the light because God created all things.}

God created the light..Gen. 1:3

God saw the light, that it was good, and God divided the “light” from the “darkness”…Gen.1:4

{Notice that God did NOT call the “darkness” good}

I formed the light, and created darkness:I make peace, and created evil; I the Lord do all things…Isaiah 47:7

{Here in Isaiah we are told that God created darkness and evil}

We were also told that the “serpent” is a beast of the field [earth]…by looking at Gen. 3:24-25, we see that the Lord God made [created] the beast of the earth. We also see by Gen. 2:19-20…

And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he [Adam] would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof….And Adam gave names to ALL cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to EVERY beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a help meet for him. {Now if Adam named all the beast of the field, Adam also had to name the “serpent” because the “serpent” is a beast of the field…Gen. 3:1.}

Joel 26:13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

Satan was made by God a beast of the field (Gen. 3:1), a crooked serpent (Job 26:13) and a waster to destroy (Isa. 54:16).

Satan was from the beginning a sinner (1 John 3:8), a murderer and the father of lies (John 8:44).


As we unfold the truth about Satan we must understand that Satan was never good. He was always evil. We can see in 1 John 3:8 that it is the devil who sinned from the beginning.

If Satan was this “good fallen” angel that fell and sinned like the other “fallen angels” that sinned why wasn’t he chained into outer darkness with the other fallen angels that sinned?

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment…2 Pet. 2:4

But as we can see Satan is not chained with these angels that sinned but is able to go before God with the sons of God showing us he was not good like these other angels who sinned.

Also why is Satan name mentioned separate from the angels (sons of God) when they come before God?

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

Job 2:1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

We are seeing a much clearer picture of who and what Satan really is.


There is only one place in scripture we find the name “Lucifer is in Isa. 14:12

Strong's H1966 - Lucifer = "light-bearer"

1) shining one, morning star, Lucifer
a) of the king of Babylon and Satan (fig.)
2) (TWOT) 'Helel' describing the king of Babylon

Isa, 14:12-32 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 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. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet. Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, [and] slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned. Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities. For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD. I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts. The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, [so] shall it stand: That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden. Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent. And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant. Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times. What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it.

{It is clear here that Lucifer is a “man” that made the earth to tremble.

Now Satan has never been a man in the past. He has been a serpent, beast of the field, accuser of the brethren, a waster to destroyed, leviathan, etc. But if we look towards the future we see that Satan will be cast out of heaven by Michael the archangel (Rev. 12:1-10) to the earth where he will become the man of sin, son of perdition (the Antichrist) 2 Thess. 2:1-8, first beast (Rev 13) and set himself as God and pour out his great wrath aka Great Tribulation (Rev. 12:12).

Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

2Th 2:3-4 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.


Leviathan is a sea monster, a serpent

O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blasheme thy name?..Ps. 73:10

{Satan is and has always been God’s and man’s adversary}

Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength; thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters…Ps. 73:13

Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness..Ps. 73:14

Read all of Job 41:1-34.

There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play them…Ps. 140:26

In the day the Lord with sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent: and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea…Is. 27:1

{Now it is very clear who “Leviathan” is referring to… he is called a serpent and a dragon, also Satan is referred to serpent and a dragon as well as a beast. Tells us that the Lord will destroy “leviathan” [Satan, Dragon, Serpent, Devil] with a strong sword…in the end…Also we see that Leviathan comes up out of the sea the same place the first beast comes out of in Rev. 13 known as the Antichrist}


Eze 28:11-15 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 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. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

* Satan was not a king nor did he have dominion in Eden.
* Satan was not made perfect in the image of God.
* Satan was not anointed by God.

* It was Adam who was in Eden the Garden of God.
* It was Adam who was covered with all the precious stones cause he was made from dust.
* It was Adam who was created in the image of God.
* It was Adam who was anointed Cherub, the guardian of Eden.
* It was Adam who had dominion even over Satan in Eden.
* It was Adam who was created perfect.
* It was Adam that iniquity was found cause he hearkened unto his wife (Eve).


2Th 2:3-8 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Jud 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

Rev 12:7-10 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Looking at the scriptures above we can see Michael is the one who restrains Satan at this time but the time will come in the near future that Michael will stop restraining Satan and cast him to the earth and Satan then will pour out his great wrath aka Great Tribulation for 3 1/2 years.


According to Rev. 12 there will be a war in heaven between Michael and his angels and Satan and his angels. Satan will be cast out of heaven (Rev. 12:12). Satan will fall like lightning (Luke 10:18) into the sea (Mediterranean Sea). He is the beast (dragon/ leviathan) coming up out of the sea (Ps. 74:13,14, Isa. 27:1, Rev. 13) with seven heads (Rev. 12:3, 13:1, 17:3, 7).

This event will cause a earthquake in the sea and a tsunami causing people to flee from the flood (Rev. 12:15,16). This is why they are on the housetops (Matt. 24:17, Mark 13:15, Luke 17:21) and flee to the mountains (Matt. 24:16, Mark 13:14) cause they are trying to find higher ground to escape the flood that Satan (Rev. 12:15,16) is sending out of his mouth after the woman (Israel).

When you look up sea in Rev. 12:12 it literally means the Mediterranean Sea. There has been some major earthquakes and tsunamis over the years. See here

The woman (Israel / 144,000) will flee form the face (man of sin / son of perdition) of the serpent because he is the beast (Antichrist). The whole world will wonder after the beast but they actually worshiping the dragon (Satan).

* First Beast = serpent, Satan, Dragon, Antichrist
* Name of the beast = Lucifer, Satan, Leviathan, Beelzebub
* Image of the Beast = Image of Baal / Balaam
* Number of the beast / number of a man = 666

Chief prince of Meshech and Tubal – Eze 38:2-3 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I [am] against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

Eze 39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

Prince of the world – Jhn 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

Jhn 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

Jhn 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.


Daniel 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
