9 And [kai] the great [megas] dragon [drakon] was cast out, [ballo] that old [archaios] serpent, [ophis] called [kaleo] the Devil, [diabolos] and [kai] Satan, [Satanas] which [ho] deceiveth [planao] the whole [holos] world: [oikoumene] he was cast out [ballo] into [eis] the earth, [ge] and [kai] his [autos] angels [aggelos] were cast out [ballo] with [meta] him. [autos] KJV-Interlinear



9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. NASB



And here the dragon is identified as Satan or the devil. Satan means adversary, while devil means accuser. Both terms carry connotations of judicial protocol.


Which means that although there is an angelic conflict, the entire confrontation between God and Satan, is also a judicial process. Satan committed a crime. God called him on that crime. Satan refused to repent. Satan was arraigned, charged, tried, convicted, and sentenced.


His sentence is the Lake of Fire, however as in every judicial proceeding, the formal sentence is not carried out pending appeal. Human history is that appeal process.


Satan is not attempting to reverse his conviction, but instead is trying to ruin God and therefore trying to remove his conviction by means of discrediting God and Gods right to try him in the first place.


Satan is called the deceiver, ‘planao,’ which likewise carries the connotation of one who deceives habitually. It is his nature and habit to deceive people and the entire world. Deception means the effort of withholding truth and misleading with lies, and doing this intentionally.


He is called the father of lies, John 8:44.


With his removal from heaven, his appeal formally ends. Satan will contest his removal, but will eventually be cast into prison during the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ, in which Christ will demonstrate that without Satan, the world will enjoy unbelievable prosperity and health.


With Satan in the world these past many millennia, hardship and difficulty have been the norm.


At the end of the 1000 year reign of Christ, Satan will be released, and demonstrate that he has learned nothing. He will rebel once again against Christ, and that rebellion will be put down immediately. The sentence of the lake of Fire will then be executed thus ending history as we have known it.
