Satan fell before the foundation of the world and he has been trying to corrupt the world ever since.
Isaiah 14:13-14 tells how Satan set out to elevate himself above the angels, to sit enthroned in the place of God, and become like God.
You said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.”
In his pride Satan demanded that glory due only to God be redirected toward himself, and gave a full denial of God’s authority. In doing so he gave us the Biblical definitions of good and evil.
Everything that yields to God or glorifies Him is good, and everything that rebels against God or glorifies someone or something else is evil.
But, remember that Satan is a fallen foe and has always been subject to the authority of the Son of God. “The One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
