The purpose of banishing him to earth is for him to rule it so that the entire universe can see how much of an awful ruler he would have been if he were to rule heaven.
so u mean God is happy seeing us suffer because he wants us to see how bad a ruler devil would have been

The Bible says God has made all things for Himself even the wicked for the day of evil.(Prov 16:4

A lot of us would never appreciate God if there were no devil.

If there were no diseases,how would we know God can heal? If there were no death,how would we know God can raise the dead?


The existence of satan makes us appreciate God more because He is ever there to save us from the devil and when we are saved, a stronger love and bond is built between God and us.


Whether the devil exists or not,that doesn't matter anymore since there is that great love and bond between God and us.

Bro, the simple answer to the first and second question is that God wants to test mankind.

For the third question.... The test will be worthless if those who obey God aren't rewarded and those who disobey aren't punished.

A good government loves and protects its citizens and provide their essential needs. Yet, it builds prison to be used by the same citizens. Why do you think it does that?

@OP

You've asked a very vital question that over 70% of Nigerian Christians and Muslims can't answer cos they don't have none for it.

Satan rebelled in heaven. He was able to deceive one third of the angels in heaven to follow him. That's about several billions of angels. He questioned God's authority and lied to the angels that they were better of on their own than with Yahweh. He led a revolution against God and wanted to usurp God and mount the throne. He wanted to rule.

Isaiah 14:13-14

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."


Many angels believed in his words as he promised them better than what God gave them. That was how he was able to pull some of them to his side.

Revelations 12:3-4
Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.

After he succeeded in pulling those stars to his side, he launched his rebellion.

Revelations 12:7-9

"Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.
But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him."

He got barnished from heaven. Now, your question asks to to know why God didn't destroy him as soon as inequity was found in him. If God had destroyed him immediately, all the angels including the ones that didn't listen to his lies would have felt God was silencing His opposition. So, to prove the devil wrong by showing the heavenly hosts that no one can rule better than Yahweh, God decided to let Lucifer rule the earth for the entire universe to see.

Since Satan has been ruling the world, there hasn't been peace.

1 John 5:9

"We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is Under the control of the EVIL ONE."

Now, all those angels that refuse to buy his lies can now see that the devil would have been a huge disaster if he had been allowed to rule heaven. If God had destroyed him the moment he chose to rebel, those angels would have thought Lucifer was right, that's why God quickly silenced him.

The billions of angels who stood by him are now the demons and principalities of darkness in this world today, while the One that remained loyal are the good and peaceful angels.


Imagine if PDP used all the power at their disposal to silence APC, the masses would have complained cos they thought they saw a hope in APC and all its promises. But now that APC, has gotten to power, we can now all see that they aren't competent enough.

The time for Satan's destruction is near cos Yahshua is coming.

Because he wanted you to have a servant and a spiritual experimental specimen. Satan is the most powerless being.

according to UN. Statistic over 100billions human have died now think of about 99billions of human will be burning in the fire!!!! From all loving God ? Right ? Let's us reason. There is punishment after death for those who go againts the rules of God but not that of fire. There is a something missing in the story of creation, satan and heaven in the bible.

Satan can't die because he is a disembodied spirit. Spirits don't die.

You can only bound them or cast them out sometimes into the abyss.

Christ did not kill any demon when he was on earth. He was casting out.

Christians should learn to start being humble enough to say "I don't know" when questions like this arise. Instead of giving rather senseless answers that raises more questions and quoting a lot of unrelated bible verses that only reminds us of their ability to memorise rather than thinking logically most times.

Just can't stop laughing!

I think about this too, but you can't question God.

Really bothers me, especially the chapter that says: woe unto the inhabitants of the earth, for the devil has come to torment you!

There is a reason why God created us differently, some white, some black, some Christians some, some Muslims, some rich or some poor, some beautiful some ugly, some Godly and some satanic.

If God wanted he would have created everyone same race same language, same religion and rich.

My advice to you is do your best and leave the rest to God to judge on judgement day
