When Is Satan Cast Out Of Heaven?

Q. How can you say that Satan has not been thrown out of heaven yet. If you read Genesis thru Revelation we are taught that he has already been cast down. What you are talking about? Please help me understand.

A. The Bible describes Satan being cast out of Heaven in Rev. 12:10-13, which is still in our future. All through the Age of Man Satan has had access to both Heaven and Earth. The clearest evidence of this is Job 1:6-7. The Bible doesn’t explain how God allows this but Rev. 12:10 makes it clear. After Rev. 12:12 he will no longer be permitted in Heaven. The Great Tribulation will take place shortly thereafter, followed by his 1,000 year imprisonment.
