Question: “What would life on earth be like if Satan won the war in heaven?” – Vilmar Alexandersen
Pretext: some of my readers side with the Chapel that the war in heaven hasn’t taken place, that it is a future event. This is a critical false doctrine they teach – that prior to the great tribulation in the future Satan will be cast down to earth. The war is OVER. Satan is defeated and has already been cast out of heaven. He persecutes the woman now – she represents the elect of God.
The only way for Satan to have won is for Jesus to never had been born or made it to the cross – which is impossible because God had ordained it from the foundation of the world.
Satan was cast down during the ministry of Jesus when he ushered in the Kingdom and his ultimate defeat was sealed at Calvary.
Satan is allowed a short season of limited operation to test humanity but his fate in the lake of fire is assured.
Jesus sent out the disciples to heal and preach that the kingdom of God had come in Luke 10. They return were amazed that demons were subject to them in the name of Jesus. Jesus then said, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”
Jesus is the strongman who binds Satan. This binding and plundering of Satan’s and his kingdom come into full force when Christ defeats the power of sin and death through his sacrifice.
