  1. The Destiny of Satan . . . and the rest



    The following passages below from John 12 and Revelation 12 are explicit in their indication
    that Satan's destiny has already been set.

    What destiny is that?


    Well, Satan is
    going to be put in the Lake of Fire as punishment for all of his deception generally--and specifically because the Kingdom of God HAS COME already in the first century:
