Satan wears several hats, and has several names. Most think that Satan and Christ Jesus are equal, which is un-true: Christ Jesus[YHVH] actually created Satan-and ultimately will destroy him. Satan in the first heaven age was an arch-angel that was high ranking, and guarded the Mercy seat-that was occupied by Christ Jesus.
The Mercy seat was coveted in Satan's mind, and immediately caused his exit: he tricked 1/3 of the angel to join him. They all are dead-spirits-talking. Satan downfall was he has an insatiable appetite for others to worship him. He is extremely rebellious, and wickedly cunning.
Satan can comprehend the depth of God's love, for His people. Satan continues to under-mind the system of Salvation that is in place: beginning in the Garden. "Did God say; your eyes will be opened, and you will be as gods". This plan allowed him to have authority, and mankind to have a death-sentence over their heads.
With Job we see him attempting to make Job "curse God, and die". With the temptation of Christ he offered the kingdoms of the world, if Christ Jesus would "fall down and worship me". The Tempter[Satan] is the master of short-cuts. His children[seed] are given charge of the world during this generation of the fig-tree: and we see the m. o. of their father in them.
Satan incarnate, will have five months on earth and will convince many that he, is the real Savior. He knows that Judgment has been pronounced but is convinced that a loving God will not destroy people-along with a wicked spirit. Satan's plan from the beginning is to control, or destroy. Satan can not save himself, or anyone else.
