6 One day the members of the heavenly court came to present themselves before the LORD, and the Accuser, Satan, came with them. 7 “Where have you come from?” the LORD asked Satan. Satan answered the LORD, “I have been patrolling the earth, watching everything that’s going on.” Job 1:6-7
Ask yourself this question, “How do I like living on a planet that is controlled by Satan?” Satan wanted to be the god of Heaven, and even tried to overthrow the kingdom with angels that had pledged allegiance to him.
But Satan was ultimately thrown out of Heaven, and fell to the ground like lightning! God said to him, since he wanted to be god, the Lord made him god of this lowly planet.
