    Here is a list of some of the other names for Satan in the Bible. Satan plays many roles and by knowing them it will give us a better understanding to his method of operation. The Scripture reference is not a complete list of every time these names are used, it is there to give you an example of how it is used in the Bible.Abaddon Revelation 9:11 a destroying angel The Accuser of our brethren Revelation 12:10 against one in the assembly, i.e. a complaintant at law; specially, Satan The Adversary I Peter 5:8 an opponent (in a lawsuit); specially, Satan (as the arch-enemy) Apollyon Revelation 9:11 a destroyer (i.e. Satan) Beelzebub Matthew 12:24 Mark 3:22 Luke 11:15 dung-god; Beelzebul, a name of Satan Belial II Corinthians 6:15 worthlessness; Belial, as an epithet of Satan the Devil Matthew 4:1 a traducer; specially, Satan: false accuser, devil, slanderer. Dragon Revelation 12:9 and 20:2 probably from an alternate form of derkomai (to look); a fabulous kind of serpent (perhaps as supposed to fascinate) The Enemy Matthew 13:39 from a primary echtho (to hate); hateful (passively, odious, or actively, hostile); usually as a noun, an adversary (especially Satan) Father of all lies John 8:44 a falsifier god of this world II Corinthians 4:4 god is used generically and refers to Satan King of Babylon Isaiah 14:4 confusion; Babel (i.e. Babylon), including Babylonia and the Babylonian empire King of Tyrus Ezekiel 28:12 a rock; Tsor, a place in Palestine. Satan is the false rock. Christ is the true Rock. Little horn Daniel 7:8 a horn (as projecting); by implication, a flask, cornet; by resembl. an elephant's tooth (i.e. ivory), a corner (of the altar), a peak (of a mountain), a ray (of light); figuratively, power Lucifer Isaiah 14:12 (in the sense of brightness); the morning star: lucifer (the king of Babylon). Satan is the false morning star. Christ is the true morning Star. Man of sin II Thessalonians 2:3 Satan was the first to sin. See Ezekiel 28:11-19 That Old Serpent Revelation 12:9 and 20:2 old = original or primevalserpent = (through the idea of sharpness of vision); a snake, figuratively (as a type of sly cunning) an artful malicious person, especially Satan Power of darkness Colossians 1:13 "shade" or a shadow (literally or figuratively [darkness of error or an adumbration]) Prince of the power of the air Ephesians 2:2 prince = a first (in rank or power)power = privilege, i.e. (subjectively) force, capacity, competency, freedom, or (objectively) mastery (concretely, magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of control), delegated influence Prince that shall come Daniel 9:26 a commander (as occupying the front), civil, military or religious; generally (abstractly, plural), honorable themes.

    Nothing here proves your supposition that Satan physically departed from the earth after Christ's crucifiction and left is "spirit" behind. It is certainly true that Satan has many names, however that does not provide the scriptural proof of your assertion.

    I did not post it for that reason but simply as a teaching tool If I had been trying to prove it to you I would have posted it in the thread we were discussing it in. I just ran across it and thought others might enjoy it.

False morning star, false rock, false Christ...False Godhead.Satan, AntiChrist and the False Prophet.(I don't remember where it is at, but still biblical sound)Lovest thou in Christ Jesus (Yahshua) our Lord and Saviour.

    The only thing I enjoy reading about this wicked creature is in the book of Revelation where it tells about him being cast into the Lake of Fire and tormented forever.
