Satan is one of the names of the angel who opposed God and was cast down from heaven. His other common names are Lucifer, which means "light-bringer" (derived from Isaiah 14:12 in the King James Version), and the Devil. Satan is the Hebrew term for "Opposer" or "Adversary" whereas Devil is the Greek word for "Liar" or "Slanderer". As an enemy of God, he works to kill, steal, and destroy what God has created, including man whom God has created in His image. His most infamous act as "the serpent of old" was to deceive Eve into eating from the Tree of Knowledge in the garden of Eden, which later led to Adam's disobedience which brought death upon all mankind. Satan's power over death, however, would be destroyed when Jesus Christ was sent to earth born as a man to the virgin woman Mary to die for the sins of all mankind and then rise from the dead three days later. Despite this, Satan's ambition still remains:
- "I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High." (Isa 14:13-14)
In the book "The Indwelling", Satan attempted to overthrow God in heaven with the help of his angels, but was cast down from heaven, in fulfillment of Scripture. He indwelt Nicolae Carpathia and resurrected him from the dead in order for him to resume his role as the Antichrist. He briefly departed from Nicolae in an underground bunker in Solomon's Stables in the book "Glorious Appearing" to warn the Antichrist that he was nothing but a shell for him to reside in. Later on, when Nicolae and Leon Fortunato were captured, Jesus caused Satan to depart from Nicolae for good before he and Leon were sent to the Lake of Fire. Satan was then chained up and cast into the bottomless pit, where he would remain for 1000 years until the Millennial Kingdom ended. Near the end of the book "Kingdom Come", Satan rose up from his prison to lead the army of The Other Light believers into a final battle against God and Jesus Christ, only for his forces to be instantly consumed by fire that came down from the heavens. Satan then confessed that Jesus Christ is Lord before he was also sent to the Lake of Fire to be tormented for all eternity.
