Where did the Devil come from? Did God create him? What do you think?

God created Lucifer. Lucifer was God's cherished angel and was in charge of the Praise and Worship in Heaven. Until Lucifer rose up and wanted to take God's Throne and become God himself. He got one third of the angels in heaven to rebel against God and God cast him and the angels that followed him out of heaven. Then he became satan and his followers demons. Isaiah 14:1-21

He was one of Gods angels. Keeper of the music I believe. He wanted to be the one in charge so God kicked him out and cast him down to the earth.

Lucifer was the music man of heaven. Desired to be more powerful than God, and God kicked him out of heaven. 1/3 of God's angels followed who was now Satan, and are referred to as "fallen angels"

Zeus needed somebody to be in charge of the underworld, so he put his brother Hades down there to run the show.

Satan was an arch angel, one of the highest angels in heaven, he created beautiful music, and at that time was called Lucifer. Lucifer became prideful, and thought that he was better than God, so he turned on him, and took one third (or two thirds, I can't remember) of the angels with him, and they became demons. Lucifer took the name Satan or the devil, whatever you want to call him, and then tempted Adam and Eve....and they gave in, and now we have to world today.....

Satan was created as a holy angel. Isaiah 14:12 possibly gives Satan's pre-fall name as Lucifer. Ezekiel 28:12-14 describes Satan as having been created a cherubim, apparently the highest created angel. He became arrogant in his beauty and status and decided he wanted to sit on a throne above that of God (Isaiah 14:13-14; Ezekiel 28:15; 1 Timothy 3:6). Satan's pride led to his fall. Notice the many "I will" statements in Isaiah 14:12-15. Because of his sin, God barred Satan from heaven.
Even though he was cast out of heaven, he still seeks to elevate his throne above God. He counterfeits all that God does, hoping to gain the worship of the world and encourage opposition to God's kingdom. Satan is the ultimate source behind every false cult and world religion. Satan will do anything and everything in his power to oppose God and those who follow God. However, Satan's destiny is sealed-an eternity in the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10).http://www.gotquestions.org/who-Satan.html

Many would agree with you. Have you ever thought about how the Devil continues to influence humans today?

Yes,he is still at it and will keep going.

Yes, he will up until the time that God destroys him, Romans 16:20, "For his part, the God who gives peace will crush Satan under YOUR feet shortly. May the undeserved kindness of our Lord Jesus be with YOU." Take a look at chapter 10 and page 213 of this Bible study aid.

He was created by God. His name was Lucifer. He was the music leader. He was kicked out of heaven for trying to take God's place. Have you ever noticed how violent music is today? That is one of his greatest talents: Leading the music that badly influences people.

I think all can agree to that. No doubt listening to such music affects the way people think and therefore act. That being the case do you think we should fear him?
Report as
We shouldn't fear the Devil. In fact, we should stand up to him. If he were bothering you, simply tell him to go away. Be forceful and pray to God, asking him to make the Devil go away. Singing hymns can work too. He hates that. It works a lot of the time for me.

In the words of Jesus, "Get behind me Satan!" Even though Jesus was actually speaking to Peter, we know that he was saying this because Jesus knew that his dying was part of his Father's will. He didn't want Peter's human thinking to put him in a position that would inadvertently cause him to become a supporter of Satan. I think this Bible aid will be of interest to you, "What Does the Bible Really Teach?" (http://download.jw.org/files/media_books/bh_E.pdf). It discusses everything from how to deal with daily life to the coming fulfillment of God's promises, by directing you to your personal copy of the Bible.
