  • God had the ring and Satan wanted it
  • Satan used to be a beautiful angel in whom god trusted very much. HE wanted to reward Lucifer(his name in heaven) and Lucifer was overcome with greed. He wanted to have all the powers of the lord and got 1/3 of heavens angels to agree that the lord should do this. Lucifer thought he would make a better god than god himself would. The lord banshed him and 1/3 of his angels to hell where satan lives now. Satan is filled with hate and greed and will do anything to keep god from saving another persons life. Satan tries to lead us away from god and make us doubt that he is or that there even is a god in this world. He does this because he hates god for not giving him the position of a god for not giving him the power he thought he deserved.

      So how do YOU explain this...(Revelation 20:10) And the Devil who was misleading them was hurled into the lake of fire and sulfur, where both the wild beast and the false prophet already were; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. This 'lake' is where the idea of a hot place of punishment comes from...yet the scripture says Satan himself is HURLED there... It is not literal...it is an acronym for destruction/ elimination... This shows the real damage that false religion has done to people...
  • a GOOD QUESTION...Satan was just one of the myriads of angels created by Jehovah...But Satan wanted the worship reserved FOR Jehovah...And in seeking this, ,made himself into Jehovah's enemy... It is interesting in that Jehovah did not take away any of Satan's POWER to do things...Satan still had FREE WILL, like we all have. So OUR decision to be worshipful to Jehovah is not forced [ by being scared of being punished.] Right from the start of Satan's disobedience, Satan knew his time was limited....and when Jesus [ as Michael ] ejected Satan and his demons [ the angels who chose to follow Satan ] from heaven [ Revelation 12: 7-9, 12 ] we here on the earth have had trouble... And it will not end until Satan is " abyssed"...locked up for a thousand years...[ Revelation 20: 1-3 ] But even after that, Satan will be released for a short while...as a further test of US....Only then is he eliminated... [ Revelation 20:10 ]

      Nowhere in Scripture does it say Jesus is Michael.

      But it does...DANUIEL 10: 13, 21& 12:1...AND Jude 9...(Jude 9) But when Miʹcha?el the archangel had a difference with the Devil and was disputing about Moses? body, he did not dare to bring a judgment against him in abusive terms, but said: ?May Jehovah rebuke you.? There is only ONE " archangel" that being Jesus, Jehovah's SON...PROVERBS 8: 22-31 (Revelation 12:7-9) And war broke out in heaven: Miʹcha?el and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them any longer in heaven. 9 So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. (Revelation 12:12) On this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.? Jesus has not delegated any part of the job of eliminating Satan to any of the angels inferior to him...No even GABRIEL who told Mary her condition.

      None of what you say is clear. Daniel 10:13, 12:1 and Jude 9 only mentions Michael.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      In the beginning of Proverbs chapter 8, it is referring to a woman asking for wisdom. Revelation 12:7:9 mentions Michael yet again, not Jesus. Revelation 12:12 is irrelevant.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      What Scripture teaches: Hebrews 1:6 "And again, when He bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, He saith, [And let all the angels of God worship Him]." As you see, ALL the angels of God worship Jesus.

      Hi Jenny...thanks for the response. Jesus, as we know him, only got his name ' Jesus' when he was SENT to us...but as he existed in heaven before this, then he would have had a name THERE...and it is Michael...the ' chief' angel...given the job of eliminating Satan from heaven...And this is separate rom another important angel, Gabriel...who was given the job of advising Mary on her pregnancy...
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Hello pug, thanks for sharing your theory. :) But angels do not worship angels as stated in Hebrews 1:6.
    • pugwashjw65
      Hi Jenny...There is a difference between obedience and worship...ONLY Jehovah should be worshipped...People on the Bible who wanted to worship Jesus were wrong...ALL worship should be directed to Jehovah.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Actually, we are not talking about people here. We are talking about angels. Jesus is worshiped by ALL the angels of God. Why give me theories when you can learn it from Scripture? C'mon, you know better than that.
  • Pride. Hence why pride is one of the greater sins.
  • Pride. It leads to ignorance and rebellion.
  • He wanted to be worshipped Matthew 4:9.
  • He thought he was his equal! This happens to democraps and libs
  • not sure why, you need to ask god that question
    • pugwashjw65
      HE has answered,,,in the Bible...
  • Satan wanted worship due ONLY to Jehovah...And this is why he tempted Jesus....Satan would not dare try and tempt Jehovah himself...proof that Jesus and Jehovah ARE SEPARATE IDENTITIES. And there is no mention of ANY third and equal identity...disproving the trinity idea. (Mark 9:7) And a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud:
