Satan has fallen. But he has not yet been cast out of heaven!

Satan has fallen. But he has not yet been cast out of heaven!

By Craig C. White

Many Christians read 2Thessalonians 2:3 and conclude that the Holy Spirit or the Church must be removed from the earth before the Antichrist can be revealed or the Tribulation can begin. But I say that the “falling away” in 2Tessalonians 2:3 describes the casting out of Satan from heaven to the earth.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

The Holy Spirit will be active on earth during the Tribulation. Many people will be saved during the Tribulation. The Holy Spirit can not be taken away as long as there are people who are trusting God.

Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Satan has certainly fallen from his previous glorious estate but Satan has not yet been completely banned from heaven. The following verse is written about the Tribulation period. Satan has been in Heaven accusing believers in front of God. So around the time of the Tribulation period Satan will be cast down from heaven to earth.

Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Satan is the one who prevents the Antichrist from being revealed with false signs. Because Satan must fall from Heaven to Earth in order to empower the man called the Antichrist.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

A “falling away” is the fall of Satan not the removal of the Holy Spirit. Satan must be cast out of Heaven to the Earth before the Antichrist is empowered. Jesus said that he say Satan fall as lighting. I think that this statement is prophetic. This event may even be visible from earth. By the way, I think that Satan will finally be cast out of heaven any day now.

Satan has fallen. But he has not yet been cast out of heaven!
