The devil is that large and powerful serpent, the same old dragon; him and his angels have been on the run fleeing.
Jesus said, "I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning!" Luke 10:18.
There was war in heaven; Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels.
Leviathan was defeated and "was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him," Revelation 12:9. Christ saw them defeated, and no place was found for them in heaven any longer.
He defeated him on Earth too, and this time for you and me who believe in him and said; "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you," Luke 10:19.
What the devil can do is flee, run away from you, twist, wiggle, twirl and weave.
John said, "Then I saw an angel come down from heaven with the key to the bottomless pit and a heavy chain in his hand. He seized the Dragon, that old Serpent, the devil, Satan, and bound him in chains for a thousand years, and threw him into the bottomless pit, which he then shut and locked so that he could not fool the nations anymore until the thousand years were finished. Afterwards he would be released again for a little while." Revelation 20:1-3.
But Jeremiah said, "Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil," Jeremiah 13:23.
After the thousand years, Satan is let out of his prison and he will go out to deceive the nations of the world again. He will gather these people together to battle the saints, but fire will suddenly come down from God out of heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived many, will be "cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever," Revelation 20:9-10.
Will the devil be killed? No my friend, in that day the LORD with His severe sword, great and strong, Will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent in the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever!
I said above, Satan will be let out of his prison, but he will go out to deceive the nations of the world again, to battle the saints, he will be defeated and cast into the lake of fire where the beast (antichrist) and the false prophet/s are. The book of life will be opened, and everyone will be judged "according to their works, by the things which were written in the books," Revelation 20:12. John says, "Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire," Revelation 20:14-15.
After this, a new heaven and a new earth appears.
