Demons are the smallest, lowest spirit beings in the spiritual world. They are believed to have originated when 1/3 rd of the angels fell with the rebellion of Lucifer who defied the authority of God prior to the creation of the universe, the world and what we know as earth. There are billions of them, but fortunately for mankind, 2/3rds of the angels remain and they are good, God’s unseen spiritual servants.
The first goal of demons is to rule humans by fear. That is the most common method. But if humans smarten up and see that demons are not in control of everything, then demons seek to have humans believe they don’t exist at all. The 1st is the belief of primitive societies; the second belief is found in civilized societies. Either way the demons appear to be either non-existent or harmless. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Demons have only one nature. This is helpful to us. For example, a lying demon will not steal and the whining demon will not be curse. The Bible is filled with these names, scattered about the pages – lust, strife, confusion, evil work, whining, depression, rebellion, religion, false humility, contempt, shame, guilt, jealousy, rage,blame, confusion, pride, presumption, greed, stubborn, controlling, and murder, hate, plus all the disease demons, I could go on, but I’ll leave a scripture list for later on.
Their common goal is to ruin the life of man, spoil our mental and physical health, foul up our decision-making, lure us into witchcraft or the occult, control our behavior and if at all possible keep us both out of salvation for this life and heaven in the next. And this is the purpose of the entire evil spirit kingdom. (more…)
