Satan as the Ruler of this World

Followed and disobeyed God’s command when Eve and Adam chose to sin, and Satan took possession of this domain and its glory by God’s permission (Luke 4:7).

Others have been called to serve as “ambassadors” for “Christ” in sharing the message of the gospel, as stated in 2 Corinthians 5:20. Furthermore, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places through Christ, as mentioned in Ephesians 1:3. As Christians, we have been gifted with God’s righteousness, as stated in Romans 5:17; 5:21. We will never face condemnation and have been forgiven of our sins and redeemed through the beloved Son, as mentioned in Colossians 1:14. We have been transferred to His kingdom and rescued from the domain of darkness, as stated in Colossians 1:13. At the moment we trusted Christ as our Savior, we received victory, as stated in 1 Corinthians 15:57.

Eternally (Matt 25:41; Rev 20:10-15), all nonbelievers and his evil spirits, where he will stay, will be thrown into the Lake of Fire, and will be swiftly defeated (Rev 20:9), but will once again deceive the nations and lead a rebellion against God (Rev 20:7-8), he is released for a short period and will then, Satan will be confined to the abyss for one thousand years (Rev 20:1-3) and the establishment of His kingdom (Rev 20:1-6), After the return of Christ (Rev 19:11-16) against Israel. After the return of Christ (Rev 19:11-16) and the establishment of His kingdom (Rev 20:1-6), Satan will be confined to the abyss for one thousand years (Rev 20:1-3). His judgment is very close when he is cast out of heaven during the Tribulation (Rev 12:7-12); at that time his anger is greatest against Israel. Satan was judged at the cross (John 12:31; 16:11; Col 2:14-15), and is waiting for future punishment. This will happen after the seven-year Tribulation; at that time it will be said, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever” (Rev 11:15; cf. 20:1-3). God the Father has promised to give Jesus the dominions of this world, saying, “I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Your possession” (Psa 2:8; cf. Isa 2:1-5; Dan 2:44; 7:14).
