Genesis 3:14 So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.
The serpent does not share in the coming redemption of the animal world. He shall still eat dust.
Isaiah 65:25 "The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but dust will be the serpent's food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain," says the LORD.

Matthew 25:41 Then he will say to those on his left, "Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels."
Torrey: p533, T:II, P:3
1 John 3:8 He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.
Torrey: p533, T:II, P:4
Hebrews 2:14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death -- that is, the devil --
Satan's power was utterly undermined and doomed by the death of Christ.
Torrey: p534, T:II, P:5
Colossians 2:15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
Torrey: p534, T:II, P:6
John 12:31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.
Satan's dominion received its death blow at Calvary. The actual casting out thus secured may be in the future, but the death of Christ secured it and it is now assured. Potentially, Satan is already cast out. He is an already conquered enemy:
Luke 10:18 He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven."
Satan may still bother us, but he has got to go.

Romans 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
Torrey: p534, T:II, P:8
Revelation 20:1-3  And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain.  He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.  He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.
Torrey: p535, T:II, P:9
Revelation 20:7-8  When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison  and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth -- Gog and Magog -- to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.
Torrey: p535, T:II, P:10
Revelation 20:10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
