Some part of Lucifer has always existed. Some part of YOU has always existed. At some point, God gave us divine form and potential, making us his children. We don't know how long we were spirits with God in the habitable parts of his Earth (while he prepared this Earth for us to live on). But we were there when he terraformed our planet. Job 38:1-7; Prov. 8:22-31.

No one on Earth knows the answer to that question.

Lucifer, Satan, the Devil, beelzebub, Belial, and several other Sons of God, formed a gang called the Dragon(serpent); the serpent was not a snake. The Devil, whom Jesus called prince of this world, remains closest to earth as main representative of the Dragon.
SONS of God are called ANGELS when performing outside of Heaven. So, Satan has been, and still is, an Angel for billions of years

right up to the time that he decide that he was better than his creator and challenged him that ended up in a war between GOD and his angles and Satan and his angles . He lost big time as he was created by GOD He was then judge by his creator and found wanting BUT god took pity on him and gave him a reason to live . He sent Satan out a heaven and his new job was to allow people the choice of good or evil
Follow Satan and have your soul deleted on death or follow God and live in heaven. The choice is simple --Good or evil --life after death or deleted

The Bible does not say. But, we can use context clues. God created Heaven before earth, so we know he was an Angel in heaven before earth was even created. Then he continued to be an Angel for for some time before he was banned from heaven. He was an Angel long enough to develop a close bond with Jehovah God and long enough to have responsibilities.

I don't know the exact date that it happened.
I do know that Satan fell either before or at the same time as the Fall. Satan was one an angel of light, and a very beautiful on at that. He saw the authority that Adam and Eve have been given by God and wanted that authority for himself. It's unclear whether or not Satan was classified as fallen before the Fall. It doesn't say that the serpent was evil, it just says that he was the craftiest of all beasts of the field. I do know that God cursed Satan for his part in the Fall of man, and since then, Satan has been trying to usurp God's power in order to stop the curse.
Satan's time is short. At the end of time God will come and put an end to Satan's rebellion, and all who follow him.

thats is unclear and i'd like to know the answer myself ... some actuallly hypothesize that the angels and the earth and humans were all created at about the same time ... one thing is clear though, the timeline was such that 'Lucifer' had a big problem with the position humans were given and more or less instigated an uprising among the angels over it ...
