Well, by "god" if you mean father Yahweh.
First, "the devil" as is portrayed in many movies and books is just a fable and fiction. Father Yahweh has sons. The angels are also called "sons
of eloahim" as they are eloah beings.
There is a group called "the satan," in Hebrew ha-satan. "ha" means "the." Satan is not an actual name. They are part of father Yahweh's
purpose too. But let me state that the chief satan has not been cast out of the third heavens yet where father Yahweh dwells. However, iniquity will
be found in him. As a matter of fact, he was created perfect in his ways until iniquity is found in him. Many people believe that he's been already
cast out, but this is simply not the case if one studies the actual wording.
Here is the thing. Lucifer is not the name of the chief satan. That is something a lot of people think and there's been tons upon tons of articles
and stuff written about this. Lucifer is Latin for the planet Venus and is not the proper name of an individual. It's only in the KJ one time, I
believe, in Isa. 14. And while Isa. 14 is talking about the chief satan who when he's cast out tries to put himself above father Yahweh, you'll
note in that chapter that when people find out who he is, it's just totally unbelievable.
For example, it's said: Is this the man who made the earth temble, shaking kingdoms, etc? It's said with kind of an exclamation and surprise.
Now, we are not specifically told his name in the Scriptures, but many of the early Christians knew who he was. If you do a lot of studying, you can
kind of figure it all out. However, I will not repeat it because I don't know for sure 100 percent. It's best not to say in these circumstances
and out of respect for the sacred ones.
