Did He??

Posted by n/a on 8/24/2005 6:35:42 PM

Did God simply throw Satan out of Heaven or did he throw him out to earth. If to earth why??

Revelation 12:9 says that Satan and his angels were cast to the earth. Satan was permitted to advocate his cause in several worlds and none accepted him except ours. So he ended up here on earth after being expelled from heaven and all the other places because Adam and Eve chose him instead of God. Satan's presence here on earth as its ruler was the result of human choice.

I don't think it says that he cast satan to earth. It says he cast satan OUT OF heaven, and satan took 1/3 of heavens angels with him. It doesn't say where he cast him to, just that it was out of heaven. Satan then rebelled and tried to turn God's creations against him. According to Ellen White, satan didn't just temp humans. He tempted many worlds, but ours was the one that fell! So in other words there are perfect worlds, without sin out there!!!

I heard that God sent Satan to Earth. I think it might say that in the Bible somewhere or else it is is Ellen Whites writings. But I suggest that you study it for yourself. It might be in Isaiah.
