"Wasn't he Lucifer, the angel of light, before he fell and became Satan?"

He seems to be called several names, and yes he was an angel. So beautiful that his pride drove him to want to be equal to God... He is referred to as the serpent of old, the devil... Revelation spells out his end along with the rest of us.

Revelation is what is yet to come, although some argue it has already happened. So, if it yet to happen, Satan is still in heaven and has yet to be cast out.

Two references: http://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksearch=serpent...

" Revelation 12:9
And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

Revelation 20:2
And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;"


He is called the prince of the air in "Ephesians 2:1-3

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Made Alive in Christ

2 And you [a]were dead [b]in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you formerly walked according to the [c]course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. 3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, [d]indulging the desires of the flesh and of the [e]mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest."

Take care,

Ken
