What are the characteristics of Satan? What actually caused war in heaven? Why couldn’t Satan remain in heaven? And why can’t Satan ever return to Heaven? The answers to all of these questions are the same: self, self-righteousness, self-indulgence, lying, deceit, disobedience, and the inciting of confusion, fear and rebellion to the laws of God. Satan absolutely did not want to be governed by the laws of God.
Do you have the same characteristics? Do you find yourself rebelling against God, even though you call on the name of God? Know this: Light and darkness cannot co-inhabit the soul. There is only light or darkness. God says He is Light and in Him is no darkness at all. (Read 1 John 1:5.) Sin is darkness. Sin is disobedience to God. Sin is the transgression of the law of God. (Read 1 John 3:4.) Which side do you stand? Judge yourself.
