Q. Re: Rev. 5. When scripture says Satan was cast down, with his angels from Heaven to earth because he wanted to be as God; when, how and why did God give Satan the earth as a gift for being so wonderful?
A. Remember I said, “Some believe that in Eternity past, the one we call Satan was given the Earth as his kingdom.” This would have happened before Adam was created. Isaiah 14: 15 and Ezekiel 28:17 both speak of Satan being cast down to Earth, but this is a prophecy that according to Rev. 12:10 will happen at the outset of the Great Tribulation.
