Satan Tossed Out Of Heaven!

by jcsouthwest

Luke 10:18-20 — Jesus tells his disciples that he saw Satan Fall.

He said to them, “I watched Satan fall from heaven like a lightning flash.

Look, I have given you the authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy; nothing will ever harm you.

However, don’t rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

Revelation 12:7-12 (HCSB)

Then war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels also fought,  but he could not prevail, and there was no place for them in heaven any longer.

So the great dragon was thrown out—the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him.

Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

The salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God
and the authority of His Messiah have now come,
because the accuser of our brothers
has been thrown out: the one who accuses them
before our God day and night.

They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony,
for they did not love their lives in the face of death.
Therefore rejoice, you heavens,
and you who dwell in them!

Woe to the earth and the sea,
for the Devil has come down to you
with great fury, because he knows he has a short time.

Ezekiel 28:11-17 (HCSB) –Satan Was Once Beautiful In The Eyes Of God

The word of the Lord came to me:  “Son of man, lament for the king of Tyre and say to him: This is what the Lord God says:

You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
You were in Eden, the garden of God.
Every kind of precious stone covered you:
carnelian, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper,
sapphire, turquoise and emerald.
Your mountings and settings were crafted in gold;
they were prepared on the day you were created.
You were an anointed guardian cherub, for I had appointed you.
You were on the holy mountain of God;
you walked among the fiery stones.
From the day you were created you were blameless in your ways
until wickedness was found in you.
Through the abundance of your trade,
you were filled with violence, and you sinned.
So I expelled you in disgrace from the mountain of God,
and banished you, guardian cherub,
from among the fiery stones.
Your heart became proud because of your beauty;
For the sake of your splendor you corrupted your wisdom.

So I threw you down to the earth; I made you a spectacle before kings.

2 Peter 2  (HCSB) ”The Judgment of False Teachers/Prophets”

But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, and will bring swift destruction on themselves.  Many will follow their unrestrained ways, and the way of truth will be blasphemed because of them.  They will exploit you in their greed with deceptive words. Their condemnation, pronounced long ago, is not idle, and their destruction does not sleep.

For if God didn’t spare the angels who sinned but threw them down into Tartarus and delivered them to be kept in chains of darkness until judgment; 

and if He didn’t spare the ancient world, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others, when He brought a flood on the world of the ungodly;

and if He reduced the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes and condemned them to ruin making them an example to those who were going to be ungodly; and if He rescued righteous Lot, distressed by the unrestrained behavior of the immoral for as he lived among them, that righteous man tormented himself day by day with the lawless deeds he saw and heard—  then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, especially those who follow the polluting desires of the flesh and despise authority.

Bold, arrogant people! They do not tremble when they blaspheme the glorious ones;  however, angels, who are greater in might and power, do not bring a slanderous charge against them before the Lord. But these people, like irrational animals—creatures of instinct born to be caught and destroyed—speak blasphemies about things they don’t understand, and in their destruction they too will be destroyed, suffering harm as the payment for unrighteousness. They consider it a pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They are spots and blemishes, delighting in their deceptions as they feast with you.  They have eyes full of adultery and are always looking for sin. They seduce unstable people and have hearts trained in greed. Children under a curse!  They have gone astray by abandoning the straight path and have followed the path of Balaam, the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness but received a rebuke for his transgression: A donkey that could not talk spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s irrationality.

These people are springs without water, mists driven by a whirlwind. The gloom of darkness has been reserved for them.  For by uttering boastful, empty words, they seduce, with fleshly desires and debauchery, people who have barely escaped from those who live in error.  They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption, since people are enslaved to whatever defeats them.  For if, having escaped the world’s impurity through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in these things and defeated, the last state is worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than, after knowing it, to turn back from the holy command delivered to them.  It has happened to them according to the true proverb: A dog returns to its own vomit, and, “a sow, after washing itself, wallows in the mud.”

Isaiah 14:12-15 (HCSB)

Shining morning star, how you have fallen from the heavens!
You destroyer of nations, you have been cut down to the ground.
You said to yourself: “I will ascend to the heavens;
I will set up my throne above the stars of God.
I will sit on the mount of the gods’ assembly,
in the remotest parts of the North.
I will ascend above the highest clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High.”

But you will be brought down to Sheol
into the deepest regions of the Pit.

Ephesians 2:1-10 (HCSB)

And you were dead in your trespasses and sins in which you previously walked according to the ways of this world, according to the ruler who exercises authority over the lower heavens, the spirit now working in the disobedient.

We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly desires, carrying out the inclinations of our flesh and thoughts, and we were by nature children under wrath as the others were also. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love that He had for us, made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses. You are saved by grace!  Together with Christ Jesus He also raised us up and seated us in the heavens, so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace through His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.  For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift—  not from works, so that no one can boast.  For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
