Answer: People's beliefs concerning Satan range from
the silly to the abstract--from a little red guy with
horns who sits on your shoulder urging you to sin, to
an expression used to describe the personification of
evil. The Bible, however, gives us a clear portrait of
who Satan is and how he affects our lives. Put simply,
the Bible defines Satan as an angelic being who fell
from his position in heaven due to sin and is now
completely opposed to God, doing all in his power to
thwart God's purposes.



True, scripture upholds this reasoning.


Satan was created as a holy angel. Isaiah 14:12
possibly gives Satan's pre-fall name as Lucifer.


Agreed, "Lucifer or morning star"


Ezekiel 28:12-14 describes Satan as having been created
a cherubim, apparently the highest created angel.


Not true. The scriptures in Ezekiel reason that Satan "acheived" the status of Cherubim.

He was not the only one, for it is highly possible that the two images over the ark of Moses [Cherubims] represent the two highest of all in the kingdom [other than God], for they were the protectors of His throne.

They had their wings spread over the ark [mercy seat] which in the Hebrew represents protection such as a mother hen spreading her wings over her young.

It is also believed by many scholars of which I agree that Satan [Lucifer] was one of these Cherubims before he fell. There are scriptures that bear this reasoning as fact, but it requires a lot of search. 


Here's my take:
The Cherubim looked down on the arc containing the law of God and between the gaze of the Cherubim and the arc was the mercy seat. I believe the cherubim represent God himself as the judge.
  He is looking down at the law of God and measures the actions of mankind against it. Satan has never been a judge so cannot be a Cherub. The mercy seat represents Christ who covers our sin and is between the law and God.


 

Now, the Cherib in Eziekel 28 that was perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee (v15) is man.  Mankind was created perfect in the image of God, as a king having dominion over all the world (Gen 1:26,28). Christ is the ultimate cherub; He is the judge; He is the one who covers our sins.  Mankind takes part in the process as messengers getting the word of God into the world.



 
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.



Once again, untrue. Satans evil spirit is upon the earth [as with the Holy Spirit], but he himself [defacto] is behind the throne of God in heaven being held there until the appointed time.

The Lord speaking stated: "Get behind me Satan".

This was a commandment of which even Satan must obey, and as the Lord acended to the right hand of power [the throne of God], Satan is still behind Him.


I think Satan being behind Christ means that it is Christ who leads. Satan will not get in His way. God's will, will be done. When Christ commands Satan to get behind him during Christ’s testing in Luke 4 Christ was resisting the devil which caused him to flee (James 4:7). In Mark 8 Peter was rebuked for listening to Satan as evidenced by his caring more about things of man rather then those of God and His glory (Ro 8:5-10). If Christ had listened then Satan would not have been defeated. Peter was to follow Christ not try to lead or direct Him.

 

Satan is a spiritual being and cannot be in two places at once. In Job 1:7 we see he was walking on the earth and not in Heaven. Of course he spreads evil throughout the world through his legion of followers that were cast out of Heaven with him. But Satan is not or ever will again be in Heaven. He was thrown out, restrained (from stopping God's salvation plan) and sentenced to destruction at the time of the cross.




Satan became the ruler of this world and the prince of
the power of the air (John 12:31; 2 Corinthians 4:4;
Ephesians 2:2). He is an accuser (Revelation 12:10), a
tempter (Matthew 4:3; 1 Thessalonians 3:5), and a
deceiver (Genesis 3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation
20:3). His very name means "adversary" or "one who
opposes." Another of his titles, the devil, means
"slanderer."


Slanderer or deceiver.



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).



This is true, but Satan will acheive his goal in this world, for he is the one who deceives the whole world into believing that he is the one to come, the Christ of whom Israel [house of Jacob] is still looking for, therefore his title [Antichrist]. he will be crowned the god of this world by the people of this world as it is represented in Daniel and other scripture, but the throne of David [eternal throne] belongs only to one, and that is when the true Christ comes to take that which is His.


"and the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our God".

Satan is so effective as described above because he also comes as an angel of light with ministers of righteousness (2 Co 11:14).
