Although discussed throughout your Bible, Satan continues as one of God’s most misunderstood creations. You begin to see the importance of understanding Satan’s role in 2 Thes. 2:3 KJV where you are told that just before Christ returns, the son of perdition (Satan) is revealed to you.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”
The “Falling away” is the apostasy and here you begin to see that the role Satan plays is larger than the one with him standing in a red flannel suit, waving you into the fiery furnace of hell with his pitchfork.
Coming soon, he will be playing the role of Christ! In Isaiah 14:13–14 KJV Satan lets you know that, while sitting upon the Mount of Congregation, God’s seat in Jerusalem, he will be like the Most High.
 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”
Ezekiel 28:13 KJV tells you that in his attempt to be God, Satan has the looks to convince you that he is.
“Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.”
Satan used his beauty in the Garden of Eden and this verse points out that God held nothing back when He created Satan. Ezekiel 28:14 KJV tells you that before Satan turned bad, God held a special place for him in His Heart.
“Thou are the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.”
Michael was a cherub (archangel) and so was Lucifer (Satan) but unlike Michael, authority spoiled him.
Ezekiel 28:6 KJV shows that Satan’s attributes went to his head as he decided that he would take God’s place:
“Therefore thus saith the Lord God; because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God”
Lucifer’s greed and envy caused God to take him down. Taking on a new role as Satan, Ezekiel 28:8
