I think this might address your question very well.
9. OD'S PURPOSE IN ALLOWING SATAN TO CONTINUE. God has several purposes, as can be seen by the following points:

(1) To develop character and faith in the believer (Jas. 1:12; 1 Pet. 1:7-13; 5:8-9; 2 Pet. 1:4-9; Jude 20-24).
(2) To keep him humble (2 Cor. 12:7).
(3) To provide conflict that saints may be rewarded through overcoming (1 Jn. 2:13; 4:1-6; Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 26-28; 3:5, 12, 21).
(4) To demonstrate the power of God over the power of Satan (Eph. 2:7; 3:10; 1 Cor. 4:9; Mk. 16:17-20).
(5) To use him in afflicting people to bring them to repentance (1 Cor. 5:1-6; 2 Cor. 2:5-11; Job 33:14-30).
(6) To purge man of all possibility of falling in the eternal future (Rev. 21).

The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note

I also read some great notes from the dake bible in genesis 3 about the serpent.Genesis 3:1 serpent-note b. heb.snake.Satan has no power to transform himself into a snake.He is an angel and always will be though now a fallen angel[ezek.28:11-17].A literal serpent is involved as a tool of Satan;otherwise, it would be unjust of God to cause it.

The 2nd Adam was driven by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted for 40 days and nights.
I was thinking that 40 days could be comparable to what Adam endured before he fell.
Just a thought.


For ALL the promises of God in Him are YES, and in Him AMEN, unto the glory of God by us.
