Call in to speak with the host
The punishment of the devil, a "son of the morning" was that he could not have a habitation or physical body, therefore he is angry and with those cast out with him make war and possess the bodies of men by taking them over and deluding them:
The punishment, however, of "Joe Sixpack" is that he will be separate and singly, a drone, in eternity in his saved condition, for his women will be taken from him, and more women than men will be saved into the Celestial Kingdom than men, for there are three heavens, and the sons of God shall gather many lone females to themselves, for they kept their second estate, saith the Lord.
"We came to this earth that we might have a body and present it pure before God in the celestial kingdom. The great principle of happiness consists in having a body. The devil has no body, and herein is his punishment. He is pleased when he can obtain the tabernacle of man, and when cast out by the Savior he asked to go into the herd of swine, showing that he would prefer a swine's body to having none. Now, in this world, mankind are naturally selfish, ambitious and striving to excel one above another; yet some are willing to build up others as well as themselves. So in the other world there are a variety of spirits. Some seek to excel. And this was the case with Lucifer when he fell. He sought for things which were unlawful. Hence he was sent down, and it is said he drew many away with him; and the greatness of his punishment is that he shall not have a tabernacle. This is his punishment. So the devil, thinking to thwart the decree of God, by going up and down in the earth, seeking whom he may destroy-any person that he can find that will yield to him, he will bind him, and take possession of the body and reign there, ...(Joseph Smith)
