So I've had this thought for a long time. Genesis says that in the beginning god created heavens and earth....so on and so forth and on the 7th day he rested. Right? So when exactly during all this creating did he have all the drama with Lucifer and kick him out? I can't find it.

The reason you can`t find it in the bible is because it isn`t there. Satan was not lucifer. Satan did not get kicked to earth etc. The church put a few scattered verses together and has come up with this lucifer hoax, convincing people that lucifer is satan. The bible says he was a liar from the BEGINNING! He wasn`t good at the beginning and then became a liar at some other time; but a liar from the beginning. He was created to be God`s adversary..so we could know God`s love and mercy.

Satan fell, but they do not specifically say when the fall occurred. What we do know is this: the angels were created before the earth. Satan fell before he tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden. Satan’s fall, therefore, must have occurred somewhere after the time the angels were created and before he tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Whether Satan’s fall occurred a few minutes, hours, or days before he tempted Adam and Eve in the garden, Scripture does not specifically say.

Whether Satan’s fall occurred a few minutes, hours, or days before he tempted Adam and Eve in the garden, Scripture does not specifically say. Apparently at that time, Satan was still moving freely between heaven and earth, speaking to God directly and answering for his activities. At what point God discontinued this access is unknown.

Why did Satan fall from Heaven? Satan fell because of pride. He desired to be God, not to be a servant of God. How did Satan fall from Heaven? Actually, a fall is not an accurate description. It would be far more accurate to say that God cast Satan out of Heaven.

Satan rebelled against God somtime before Gen.3 but he is not kicked out of heaven and cast to the earth until just prior to the Second Coming of Christ.

I have heard that before and don't agree. He was kicked out before the "garden incident"

What about Job 1:6-12 and Rev.12:7-10.
