When Is Satan’s Expulsion?


I wish to thank you all involved with Grace Thru Faith. It is the best Bible-based website going. My question brings up something you’ve covered before. I think you said Satan will be exiled from heaven during the Trib. My grandson believes he was exiled from heaven at the time of Adam and Eve. Please clarify.


Yes, I have covered this before but it bears repeating. There’s convincing evidence that Satan still has access to Heaven. Over 2,000 years after Adam and Eve had their encounter with Satan, he can be seen in Heaven contesting with God over the righteousness of Job (Job 1:6-7). And in the account of Satan’s expulsion from Heaven (Rev. 12:10-12), Satan is described as “the accuser of our brothers who accuses them before our God day and night.”

Rev. 12 takes place in the threshold of the Great Tribulation, an event that is still in our future and will begin after the rapture of the Church.
