How is the conflict between Christ and Satan described?


"And there was war in heaven: Michael and His angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought
and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was there place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon
was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out
into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." Verses 7-9.
NOTE - This conflict, begun in heaven, continues on earth. Near the close of Christ's ministry, He
said, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven!' Luke 10:18. "Now is the judgment of this world: now
shall the prince of this world be cast out!' John 12: 31. From the councils of the representatives of the
various worlds to which Satan, as the prince of this world, was formerly admitted (Job 1:6,7; 2:1,2), he was
cast out when he crucified Christ, the Son of God.
