There are two famous verses believed to record the history of Satan;
When God created the mighty Cherub (Satan), he was perfect. At first, he was not a devil nor was he called Satan. But later, wickedness was found in him, he became proud, violent and sinful. Then God threw him out of heaven.
Did Satan reject God? YES
Satan rejected the authority of God, the superiority of God and rejected his creator. Satan wanted to become like God, or superior to God and wanted to be worshiped like God which caused his downfall.
From a Jehovah's Witness viewpoint, it is believed that, before the creation of everything, Jehovah God created Jesus, Satan, and other heavenly beings. In their view, Satan existed in heaven, before Satan became the devil.
