When does Satan "fall"?


Addition to: "What is God waiting for?"
as follows...

"Satan attained authority and power when Adam and Even sinned (Gen.3:13,16,17,18,19,23,24; Heb.2:14; Rom.5:12). He exploited the justice of God to achieve his own purposes (Gen.3:1,2,3,4,5,6; Matt.4:8,9; 1John5:19; John8:44). It was granted by God for Satan to rule this world (Rom.13:1; John19:10,11), until a just basis could be satisfied to remove Satan's authority and power (Gen.3:15; Rom.8:20; 1Cor.15:22).

Satan must be conquered in order to re-establish the Kingdom of God over all creation, and to restore creation's freedom from sin and death. This is according to the requirements of God's justice. 

If it were not necessary for Satan to lose his world dominion by means of God's justice, then God would not have subjected creation to cruel corruption, for nothing (Rom.8:19,20,21,22,23,24,25). But God is love (1John4:8), and when He temporarily abandoned creation to Satan due to Adam's choice; it was according to His justice (Gen.2:16,17). 
The establishment of God's Kingdom, and the fall of Satan, must also be by means of God's justice. 
Why was Jesus Christ required to suffer and die?
 (2Tim.1:10; Eph.1:7; John1:12; Heb.2:3,4,9,10,17; 9:26; Rom.5:17).

Satan's fall from power requires God's justice to be satisfied first...unless you believe that God is unnecessarily cruel, and wants us to suffer and die for no reason. 
It was necessary for Christ to be faithful under test, if he hoped to dethrone Satan (1John3:8; John12:31; 14:30; 16:11,33; Heb.2:14). This conquering of Satan was necessary, before Jesus Christ could be crowned king over creation (Heb.12:2; Rev.3:21) in place of Satan. 
The same requirement stands for all those called ones, who hope to join Christ and be sealed as a kingdom co-heir (Acts14:22; 1John2:13; Rev.12:11; Mark8:35; 2Tim.2:12; Rom.8:17; Rev.3:21; Luke10:18,19).

As you can see by the foregoing scriptures...Christ's faithfulness to death did cause Satan's fall from authority and power. Yet Christ does not rule alone (Rom.8:17; Gal.3:29; Rev.5:10; 20:6). Each and every heir must also conquer Satan (Luke22:31; 2Cor.2:11; 1Pet.5:8,9; 1John2:14; Rom.12:21; Rom.16:19,20; Rev.12:7; 17:14; 19:11,14,8). 
It is their individual victories to be completed, that Christ and all creation await. 
Each member of the 144000 must follow the footsteps of Christ (1Pet.2:21; Matt.16:24; 1John2:6; John14:6; Rev.14:4)...all the way to a faithful death for truth (Rom.6:5; Phil.3:10; Rev.6:9,11; 12:11). 
Each of them must overcome the temptations, tests, and persecutions by Satan, before being declared victorious by their Master, Christ. Once the last of the remnant conquer the evil one, Satan's fall will be completed. At Rev.6:9,10 those already slain ask how long they must wait. The answer given is Rev.6:11. The last of them (remnant) must also conquer for the sake of truth, at the cost of their own lives. When the last of these fulfill this requirement of Satan's rightful demand according to God's justice, Satan's fall is completed (Rev.12:10,11).
Satan opposes letting go of his dominion over the righteous.
It is for this reason that he is permitted to test and accuse them,
and oppose their divine work as well,
until they prove their righteousness and submissive loyalty to God as Father (Luke6:35; Phil.2:15).

In time, all God's children will be gathered and revealed (Matt.24:31; Rom.8:19), and the time will arrive to give God's Creation 
back to the obedient...to inherit what God originally gave Adam (Gen.1:26,27,28; James3:7), and then gave to Christ (Heb.1:2; Matt.28:18; Psalm2:8; Mark12:7; Col.1:16).
Those who belong to Christ will be heirs with him (Heb.2:7,8; Gal.3:29).
Once all the co-heirs prove faithful, Satan will then lose this long standing war against God's Will.
Satan will finally lose all authority and power,
when all God's enemies are subdued, and creation is returned to God by means of Christ (Ps.110:1,2; 1Cor.15:24,25; Eph.1:10). 
God then gives it to the second Adam, Jesus Christ,
along with all those who have proven to be His children (1Cor.15:45; Gal.3:29; 1Cor.3:23).

Satan has powerful motivation to oppose God, His Will, and His messengers.
It is by means of them that he will be cast out, defeated, and removed.
Jesus Christ was the first man to completely defeat Satan, his temptations and sin, causing Satan to be judged.
Jesus provided the legal basis for Satan to be finally cast out, 
after the harvest of wheat/co-heirs is completed with their own sifting/testing by Satan, and by their victory, attain life. (Rom.2:7; 1Cor.15:54,24,26; Rom.8:11; John5:24; 1John3:14; 5:13; Rev.2:10,11; 1Cor.15:55) (--Rev.9:10,11) "

  1. Imagine being so merciless and cunning as satan was to abuse Jahs justice to get his own end. To craftily spend time trying to figure out what you want and then look for "loopholes" in Jahs justice to get it,even at the expense of other people lives. But satan was blinded by his greed and did not count on Jah's justice being able to make up even for a selfish murderer. Love and Justice would even overcome the worst crime against Love. Those like Christ who Loved Jahs justice,would make great personal sacrifices to make sure !

    This same person is behind the GBs own desire to keep its position of "governance". Like satan,the GB are willing to kill Invited Anointed Heavenly Hope within JWs to keep her position.They are like their father,satan. They are liars and murderers to get what they want. But just as satans works will be undone by Christ and be conquered,so the GB will be conquered by faithful invited anointed who they DF for standing up to their lies.The works the GB have done in the name of Jah will be undone just as satans works will be undone.

    Jahs Love and Justice will always come out victorious!
