Jesus, while He was still alive, said that He saw Satan fallen from Heaven. He did not say that He Himself fought Satan out of Heavens, even though that is what Satan and his agents make many of us believe. Archangel Michael and his Angels fought the Satan, the Dragon, the Deceiver, the Antichrist, or the Devil out of Heavens to earth.
John says that the Antichrist was already active in his days. He had already been waging wars against the saints or the Witnesses of Jesus and the testimony (the Torah) of God (Jesus) for a long time now preparing for the final assault.
It implies, thus, that many must have been kneeling and are kneeling at the feet of Satan to worship him, pay homage or obeisance to the beast just not yet in the brutal manner that we read in the book of Apocalypse, receive his name, his mark, his number.
