Satan wanted Job dead and used his own power to attack Job (2Cor ). If Satan’s plan had worked out the way he wanted it, God would have personally tortured Job until he either cursed God or died from the torture, and if Job cursed God, God would have killed him. Job was a "servant" of God, and God pointed this out to Satan. One of Satan's primary activities is to find fault with and accuse those who follow God. ("Satan" means "accuser.") Satan wants to expose any defects that he possibly can find in those that God considers to be His "chosen" or "elect." In Satan's eyes, being able to do this. In fact, Satan ushered in humanity’s first sin by tempting Adam and Eve with much the same desire that caused his own fall—the sinful desire to be like God (Isaiah ; Genesis ). He says that God has kept these angels in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day (Jude 6). I don’t doubt that Satan was created good and fell from his proper place like Jude says, because I don’t think that evil and God are both eternal and ultimate realities.
This means God saw the Amalekites not only as a threat to Israel, but as a challenge to His own authority, meaning that Satan was behind the attack. After the battle, the Amalekites went on into Egypt, which they conquered easily because Egypt had been wasted by the plagues, and because most of the Egyptian army had recently drowned in the Red Sea. Job KJV Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. there are two things we learn from this Scripture. The sons of God presented themselves. Satan was among them. This is an obvious reference to the Angels, and we know that Satan is an Angel even though a fallen one. This battle—the battle of God vs. Satan—has been going on for over 6, years. We are told in 2 Corinthians that Satan is the “god of this age.” In God’s sovereign purpose, Satan has been permitted to exercise a great measure of authority and power through the duration of this age. Lucifer desire to be like God in the Book of Isaiah but it does not explicitly said that desiring to be like God is equal to be desiring to be like the Incarnated Logos or the "firstborn son" of God. The "firstborn son" of Mary the chosen Woman and the New Eve came into this world without a human seed. or Satan, and produced Cain, finds.
David wasn’t the biggest or the strongest of Jesse’s sons, but he had what God was looking for. God said that David was a man after God’s own heart (1 Samuel ). David loved God; he wanted to listen to Him and obey Him. This doesn’t mean that David never sinned. No human is perfect, and sadly, David did sin. But David trusted God. God’s Elect earned the right to be “chosen” in The First Earth Age when they stood against Satan who had rebelled against God and wanted His Throne (see: The Fall Of Satan, Isaiah , Ezekiel ). Unfortunately, many of God’s children turned their back on Him and followed Satan. In the Book of Job, Satan appears as the partner of God, who on behalf of God puts the righteous one to the in postbiblical Judaism does the Devil become the adversary of God, the prince of angels, who, created by God and placed at the head of the angelic hosts, entices some of the angels into revolt against God. In punishment for his rebellion, he is cast from heaven together with. He does not want to do what he was created to do. He wants to be served and there are millions who have chosen to do just that; serve him. They have listened to his lies and chosen to follow him. Eve believed the lie that she would be like God. The reason Lucifer/Satan tempted her with that was because it is the very thing that he wants -- to.
