Satan, becomes the Prince of this World
After Lucifer fell he became "the (Dark) Prince of the power of the air".. Revelation 12:7-12. Satan and his fallen angels now operate in the atmosphere above the Earth .....Hell was originally prepared for Satan and his angels ... Matthew 25:41. ... The whole world now lies in the grip of Satan, and Hell keeps enlarging herself to accommodate those who will not obey God and be saved ... Isaiah 5:14
Ezekiel and Isaiah Describe The Fall of Satan,
and the Fallen Angels and their subsequent activities
38:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, ( Satan is pictured as a prince. As soon as Adam and Eve gave their allegiance to him in obedience, he became the Prince of this world, taking the place Jesus had rightfully held. In relationship to Jesus, however, Satan was still just a prince )
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, ( Seat of God: This was Satan's claim. He wanted the angels to follow him not Michael ) in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God: (Here we see the start of Satan's rebellion in Heaven.)
vs 3,4 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffic hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:
6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; ( For Pretending to be God The Lord pronounces his doom.)
7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. (Terrible of the nations: In the scene at the end of the thousand year Millennial Reign of Jesus, Satan gathers the nations to surround the holy city, Jerusalem)
8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas. (They shall bring thee down:The wicked turn on Satan when they see that they cannot conquer Jerusalem)
9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
