Satan Fell From Heaven Like Lightning

Jesus said (in Luke 10:18) that He was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.  This was a percursor to the great fall of Satan.

The great fall of Satan occurred when the dead were raised from Sheol (Hades) to heaven in the aftermath of the resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ.  This dragon was “thrown down,” as it says in Revelation.   The prophet Isaiah spoke of such a star that would fall from heaven (14:12). 

This fall happened in “the twinkling of an eye” when the dead were raised imperishable (1 Corinthians 15:52) at the coming of the Lord, which itself He compared to a lightning flash (Matthew 24:27; Luke 17:24). 

Satan was removed from heaven to make room for all of us (Everyone Is Going to Heaven ).  Blessed be our God who has been so gracious to us by sharing His home with us for all eternity.  Sorrow may be for the night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5).  And this day that has dawned will never ends!

The proud always fall – even those who think that the judgments of God apply only to everyone else.

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
