We realize that exposing Satan gives us the upper hand and makes us stronger soldiers of God. God instructs us to keep him at bay and this action provides the battleground for us to fight as we choose to stand with God. Knowing the strategy of the enemy actually transfers the advantage to us as we work in harmony with the Lord.
We recognize that Satan goes by many names. Most of us call him the devil but he was known as the serpent in the Garden of Eden and the dragon in Revelation; he is also called the antichrist, apollyon and the wicked one. Satan has eighteen known names or titles however the name “son of perdition” describes him best.
“Son of perdition” is simply another name that Satan earned for himself and Christ refers to him by this name in John 17:12 KJV as His Words reads:
While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
Shortly before He died on the cross, Jesus while praying to His Father prayed these Words: none have been lost with the exception of one... Satan. Yes, Satan is that “son of perdition”, the only one that God has sentenced to hell. Perdition is hell and we now observe how the Strong’s Concordance describes this Greek word apoleia that was translated to the English word, perdition.
poleia, Greek 684, Strong’s
apoleia, ap-o'-li-a; from a presumed derivative of Greek 622 (apollumi); ruin or loss (physical, spiritual or eternal) :- damnable (-nation), destruction, die, perdition, × perish, pernicious ways, waste.
Apoleia means death, to perish and Satan earned this title when he became the first one to be sentenced to hell. Ezekiel 28:16-19 KJV is where he received his sentence:
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
God is talking to His previously beloved cherub, Satan and these verses describe how he was
