Because he wants to, and certainly not because of anything they've done or will do. One of the central tenants of this concept for Calvinists is that it's not what you do (or have done, or even will do) that merits you salvation. It is wholly and completely the grace of God, not just that you were chosen, but that you were then called, and then compelled to ...

By their fruits ye shall know them Your question is very valid. Satan is the great deceiver, he's been leading people down the wrong path for thousands of years, and he knows that the most elaborate deceptions are 90% truth.

God graciously allows the Angels to fight the battles with the Devil and his demons. God is omniscient and already knows who will be successful in every battle between The Arch Angel Michael and Satan and his rebellious Angels.

Scripture says that He can, though I don't think it shows a specific time when he actually does: Psalm 59:3,8 ESV For behold, they lie in wait for my life; fierce men stir up strife against me ...

I'll try an LDS answer. What is this war we are talking about? Let's look into premortal life: Abraham 3:22-28 22 Now the Lord had shown unto me, Abraham, the intelligences that were organized before the world was; and among all these there were many of the noble and great ones; 23 And God saw these souls that they were good, and he stood in ...

An indirect answer to your question: In Genesis 1 God works at creating order out of chaos. He starts the process of dividing organizing. As creation draws to a close (after much of the work is done) He gives man authority and a mandate to continue this orderly work of "subduing" a small portion of creation, namely the earth. With God as the ultimate ...
