Question 26 - Jehovah or Satan, who is the ruler of this world?

1 Corinthians 10:26 NKJV - "for "the earth is the LORD's, and all its fullness.""
Psalm 24:1 NKJV - "A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD's, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein."
Revelation 1:5 NKJV - "and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood"
Matthew 4:8-9 NKJV - "Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.""
John 12:31 NKJV - "Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out."

                The basic reason for everything is the Lord Jehovah. Satan is the one who got the authority from the Lord. The one who takes authority from Master can only be a servant. The deceitful servant can misuse his authority until he is caught by Master.  Master will punish him when time comes. It is written in the book of Job that the Satan was seated in the proximity of the Lord along with angels. And also he was seated equal to them. The one, whom the Lord addressed firstly, also was Satan. The Lord God Himself gave this equal respect to the Satan among other angels. Did we get victory over temptation? In which way, did we stand in divine test? To prove this, the Lord God tempted Christ through Satan as in Luke 4:6.
