All things were created prefect and sinless in the beginning of their creation. Concerning Lucifer, it is stated in Ezek. 28:11-17, "Thou was perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee." Concerning the angels that fell, it is stated that they "sinned" and "left their first estate" ( 2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6, 7 ). Concerning demons, it is also clear that they sinned, for they already know their punishment for what they have done ( Matt. 8:29; Luke 8:31 ). Not one Scripture says that God ever created anything sinful or imperfect. In Eccl. 3:11 we read "He made everything beautiful in his time" and anything contrary to this idea would be out of harmony with God.

This clearly stated in Acts 2:16-21, where we read of people being saved and receiving the Holy Spirit in their lives during the tribulation. see also in Rev. 7:9-17; 12:17; 15:2-4; 20:4-6; where great multitudes of people will be saved and come out of the great tribulation.

That the serpent in the garden of Eden was not the personal devil? He was one of the beasts of the field which the Lord God had made and was merely a tool of the devil to cause the fall of man. ( Gen. 3:1 ). The serpent was cursed to go upon its belly all the days of its life but Satan does not do this. The ordinary snake does go on its belly now and will continue to do so even in the Millennium ( Gen. 3:14 ); Isa. 65:25 ). There is no statement in Scripture that says the serpent was the personal devil.

That we shall know each other in both Heaven and He11?

That we shall know each other in Heaven is generally understood and is proved in 1 Cor. 13:12; 15:34-58, but that men shall know each other in He11 is not so universally known. That men will look into eternal He11 is clear from Isa. 66:22-24; Rev. 14:9-11 and as men will be fully conscious forever, it is also clear that they will know each other in He11.

That the devil knows that he will be defeated, this is clear from Rev. 12:12, "the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time." His defeat was predicted by God as far back as Gen. 3:15. From here on there are many prophecies of his defeat. His doom is predicted in Rev. 20:1-10; Matt. 25:41. God always fulfills His Word, so it is clear that Satan knows his coming defeat and doom.

That God will become an Earth-dweller in the near future. This will be after the Millennium when the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven to the Earth to be among men forever and ever, as plainly predicted in Rev. 21:1-27; 22:1-5. In Rev. 21:3 it is stated that the tabernacle of God is with men and He shall be with them and be their God.
