DEMONOLOGY “WE MUST KNOW OUR ENEMY AND HIS SCHEMES”

The Origin and Nature of Demons

There are three powers at work in the earth today: God’s power, man’s power, and demon power. Most people, including Christians, are only familiar with human power. We must understand all the three. 

Demons go by several different names in the Bible: devils, unclean spirits, and evil spirits. All of these terms refer to the same thing. We will use the terms “devils,” “demons,” and “the devil” interchangeably. 

Definition: A demon is a disembodied spirit which rebelled with Lucifer and there are of malevolent (evil) power and assignment, seeking to hinder God’s plans and destroy man’s life. They work to make God look like a liar. There are countless demons and they know their time is short. Their captain is satan, formerly known as Lucifer

WHERE DID DEMONS COME FROM?  

Satan’s Origin: Satan’s origin is very clearly presented in the Bible.

 Satan is a created being turn with me in Ezekiel 28:12-18, Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. These words were told to prophet Ezekiel concerning Lucifer.

You were in Eden, the garden of God;every precious stone decorated you: carnelian, chrysolite and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountingswere made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.

 

You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. You were blameless in your waysfrom the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.

His original name was Lucifer, which means, “Light bearer.” He was once the most anointed angel, the chief of angels, “the anointed cherub that covereth,” beautiful, full of wisdom, perfect from his creation. 

He was Heaven’s worship leader. He was lifted up in pride, became filled with violence, corrupted his wisdom, and defiled his sanctuaries. 

Therefore, God called him profane and cast him out of the mountain of God and promised to destroy him. God cast him to the ground and promised to bring forth a fire from the midst of Lucifer and devour him turn with me in {Revelation 12:9} 

Lucifer’s sin began in his heart. He had five “I wills”: 1) I will ascend into Heaven, 2) I will exalt my throne above the stars of God, 3) I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, 4) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, 5) I will be like the most High see it in {Isaiah 14:12-16} 

His rebellion lasted a split-second, for he was cast out of Heaven like a bolt of lightning, see it in Luke 10:19 and he took a third of the angels with him in his rebellion, it’s recorded in {Revelations 12:4}. 

He is still a cunning and violent creature. He is defeated, but he is not to be resisted with in the strength of man. Even Michael the archangel did not contend with him in his own strength but said “The Lord rebuke you” {Jude1: 9}

The Origin of Demons: demons are angels which were serving with Lucifer and it’s said they rebelled with him and all were thrown down with Lucifer so it’s okay to call them (fallen angels). Therefore we can have it that: 

Fallen Angels- Are unclean spirits/demons are the fallen angels that rebelled with Lucifer in Heaven. The Bible says, “Everlasting fire is prepared for the devil and his angels” {Matthew 25:41-43}. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter where they came from because the born-again believers still have authority over them to cast them out, rebuke them, and resist them. 

DEMON NATURE AND MISSION

Their sole ambition is to pervert, hinder, hurt, or destroy us. They never sleep nor slumber. They are more familiar with us than we are with them, turn with me in Proverbs 4:16 therefore, this why apostle paul always advise us to put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles (trickery, strategies) of the devil. {Ephesians 6:11}

So that Satan should get an advantage (outwit) of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices (schemes, purposes). 2 Corinthians 2:11

These two verses indicate that our adversary has tricks, strategies, wiles, schemes, purposes, and devices—all designed to hurt mankind. The Bible implores us to not be ignorant of our enemy. Here is a brief description of our enemy.” Know your enemy.” 

Just as humans have got personalities, demons have personalities, and they will make you what they are if you yield to them: Anger, Jealousy because if you still yield to anger, Lust, Homosexuality, Hypnotism and jealousy you’re not pure (Numbers 5:14), and if you turn to be Unclean thus a temple for the demons {Matthew 12:43}. 

Demons lack bodies, so they seek to possess a body. Human bodies give demons their widest range of expression for more information let us turn to {Mark 5:8, 9:25}. They are patiently plan, their strategies and intellect see herein {Ephesians 6:11; 2 Corinthians 2:11; 1 Peter 5:8}. 

Their number one strategy is to attack the Word of God in you turn with me in Genesis 3:1 and see how they attacked the word of the Lord which was with Eve and Adam. They are organized into rank and file, if you take a kin eye while reading {Ephesians 6:12}. 

They are hopelessly evil and cannot be redeemed. They are awaiting for their ultimate destruction read herein {Matthew 8:29}.Demons have a will and wants {Matthew 12:43-45}. There are no new demons. There is not a demon factory in hell making newer model demons. 

Demons will make you what they are. They are perverters, Demons can transform themselves into angels of light {2 Corinthians 11:14},  And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

Demons have doctrines they seek to get into the Church (1 Timothy 4:1). 

Demons cannot be cast into hell, nor do they come from hell. They are bound to the earth for this season. They roam dry places when they are cast out (Matthew 12:43). 

Demons may depart from you, but they are very likely to return again after a season and check on the availability of your life {Luke 4:13; Matthew 12:44} they value their opportune time that is say if you defeated them while still poor they can come when your rich to check on your availability and the moment they find a spot on you, it will be a way in.

Therefore brothers and sisters, we do not wrestle with flesh and blood, but we do wrestle with this demon realm. But greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world. Let us charge forward with great confidence and victory!

The demon realm is as busy and active as the natural realm. The demon rank and file is very organized and even unified, and to some degree, even puts the Church of the Living God to shame.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 

There is a hierarchy within the demon realm. This verse shows us the rank and file, beginning with the lowest petty officers (principality) ascending to the generals (wicked spirits in the heavenlier) in the demon army. Some devils are even more wicked than others (Matthew 12:45). 

Satan is called “the god of this world” 2 Corinthians 4:4. He is captain over all demon entities. The whole earth is his domain. He obtained that dominion from Adam in the garden. The book of Job lets us know that satan roams the whole earth (Job 1:7). Also, when Jesus was tempted by satan, satan took Jesus and showed him all the kingdoms of the world (Matthew 4:8-9). These kingdoms were satan’s to show and to give. Some evil spirits have a king over them named Apollyon Revelation 9:11

THE THREE HABITATIONS OF DEMONS

The rank and file of demons affects their seat of authority and the area of their influence. Their rank determines their habitation. There are three habitations of devils: 

Nations: The demons of highest rank are assigned over nations. They rule over a nation and direct the demonic activities among the cities and people of that nation. The Bible speaks of the “prince of the kingdom of Persia” and the “prince of Greece” Daniel 10:11- 21, the “king of Tyre” Ezekiel 28:12, and Babylon. These are references to demons of the highest order and the nation over which they have power. 

Cities: Demons of the next lower rank are assigned over cities. The Bible tells us that Satan had his seat in the city of Pergamos Revelation 2:12-13. Modern cities still have devils assigned to them. San Francisco: Homosexuality; Atlanta: Avarice; Cookeville: Religious, seducing and deceiving, etc. These spirits work to affect the people and even define the focus, ambition, and culture of the region and those succumbing to their influence. Their influence is ever-present and unflagging. Check at what is done in Miami Beach. 

People: Demons of the lowest rank are assigned to people. There are spirits of suicide, depression, murder, anger, pedophilia, etc. Devils ultimately want to possess humans.

Until they are permitted to, they simply buffet, minister, torment, harass, and hinder the person. If the devil isn’t resisted, he will continue to edge his way into that person’s life. Demons seek to inhabit human bodies because a body seems to bring rest to the unclean spirit (Matthew 12:43). Wherever you find people you will find demons. They thrive on the sins of man. Since they desire a habitation, they will move upon humans until someone yields their being over to the demon. 

EXAMPLES OF DEMON INFLUENCE 

Demons seek to influence man in every arena: 

Health: that’s why Jesus healed all that were oppressed of the devil, Doctrine: Devils have their own set of doctrine they like to promote turn with me in 1 Timothy 4:1, The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons

Government: Many dictators are demonized. Communism is purely demonic. National demons seek to affect the leaders of that countries: Polpot, Hitler, Amin.

Education systems: Many godless doctrines are taught to children, some schools are teaching our children how to become gays and lesbians. 

Family: Family can be used to pull you away from God. 

Friends: Your friends can make great ambassadors for satan. 

Entertainment: the tapestry in Poland, the demon on my doorstep.

Philosophy: Regions have different cultures and philosophies. People often change when they move to a new area or community; my friend in California, my friend in Atlanta.

Psychology (thinking /mind): Psychology can never deliver a Christian. Its founders were demonized, hyper-sexed, deviant humanists. To this day, the study of psychology is of great importance to occult practitioners. 

Music: satan started off as Heaven’s worship leader, and all of those instruments are still in him. Music is very powerful. Be careful.

The Names and Operations of Demons 

The Bible uses many names to describe satan and his minions. These names give us insight into their many personalities, roles, operations, and strategies on planet earth. 

Satan: this is according to the bible in Job 1:6; One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them. The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from? “Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it and Revelation 12:9 also records it as satan.

DEMONIC POSSESSION

Demons seek to possess a body. They will settle for animals (Mark 5) but want a human body for their widest expression. Jesus Christ and his early disciples encountered many demon-possessed people and cast the devil out of them all. 

Jesus encountered demonized multitudes numerous times. (Matthew 4:24, 8:16; Mark 1:32-34, 39; 3:11-12, 6:13; Luke 4:40-41, 6:17-19) and Jesus had a ministry of casting out devils. 

The early apostles and disciples cast out devils. (Matthew 10:1-8; Acts 5:15-16, 8:7, 16:16-18, 19:11-12). 

There are varying degrees of demonic possession. 

The Gadarene demoniac was always in torments and crying out (Mark 5), while the lunatic son was often throwing himself in the fire and water (Mark 9), yet the woman with the spirit of divination was able to walk about and operate as a seemingly normal human being (Acts 16). 

Demon possession affects people differently based upon the demon personality. It can bring supernatural power (palm reading, hypnotism, psychics, martial arts, fire walking, dagger swallowing), or it can bring destructive behavior (suicide, cutting, depression, bulimia, anorexia).

Demons gain entrance to lives by deception and sin. Live free from sin and deception and you’ll not have to worry about demonic possession. Glory to God!! We have been given all power and all authority over demon power and we are commanded to cast out devils anywhere we might encounter them

The Christian’s Authority over Devils 

Man was originally created to be the steward and caretaker of planet earth. God set him so and gave him dominion over the earth

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth 28. Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it. Genesis 1:26-28 

Dominion: To rule, to tread down, to subjugate (to bring under control by conquest). Subdue: To force, to keep under, to bring into bondage. Adam was created to rule over satan, but he instead turned his authority over to satan. Adam fell. Satan gained power to rule over man and bring them into bondage. Jesus redeemed man from bondage to the devil. Jesus purchased US back. He also purchased back our authority for us. 

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, {Mathew 28:18-19}

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; {Mark 16:15, 17}

We are not to fear the devil or demon spirits; rather, we are to confront them when they manifest and deal with them. We are authorized to cast them out.

Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. Luke 9:1 

And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. Luke 10:17-19 Subject:  To submit to someone’s control. This is a military term and you are the superior officer

THE EARLY CHURCH CAST OUT DEVILS 

The Book of Acts records that the early Church also engaged in casting out devils. 

The power of God was so strong on Peter, the proximity to his shadow caused demons to come out of people (Acts 5:15-16). 

Philip held a revival meeting in the town of Samaria and cast many unclean spirits out of the possessed (Acts 8:5-8). 

Paul cursed a sorcerer with blindness because he tried to use sorcery to prevent a government official from being born-again (Acts 13:6-12). 

Paul cast the devil out of a fortuneteller (Acts 16:16-18). 

Non-believers attempted to cast devils out, but without faith in the name of Jesus, they failed miserably (Acts 19:13-20) it also means you could be knowing Jesus but there is a difference between having Jesus inside you and knowing Jesus.

THE DEVIL IS STILL ACTIVE 

Times have not changed. Devils are still on assignment to provoke, harass, buffet, torment, hinder, sicken, and possess mankind today. 

The Bible teaches us how we are to handle them:

 In Our Personal Life 

Resist him- (James 4:7) teaches us to submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee. He will actually run from us. To resist means to “set one’s self against.” We must be against everything that is evil and demonic. 

Resist steadfast- (1 Peter 5:9) adds the word “steadfast” to our resistance. That means we will have to hold our own against him. He will flee but be prepared for a return visit. 

Stand against- (Ephesians 6:11) teaches us to “stand against” the wiles or strategies of the devil. This means to “sustain the authority.” Verse 13 adds the word “withstand.” This is the same word “resist” from the previous two points. 

Quenching thoughts- (Ephesians 6:16) tells us that “above all” we are to use the shield of faith to quench the enemy’s fiery darts. These are the thoughts that attack our mind that don’t line up with the Bible. We are to extinguish these thoughts as soon as they come to us. 

Forgiveness- (2 Corinthians 2:10-11) lets us know that walking in forgiveness is a must to keep satan from getting an advantage over us and outwitting us. Verse 11 lets us know that unforgiveness is one of his devices (dispositions). 

Tithing- (Malachi 3:10-11) says that honoring God with His holy tithe allows God to rebuke the devourer for our sakes and causes us to prosper in the natural. In The Lives Of Others 

Cast out- “To drive out with the notion of violence,” When someone wants free, you can cast the devil out of them (Mark 16:17). Satan is used to being cast out. He knows how to go away.

Bind them- “To fasten with chains,” Some people don’t want free from demon power, so all you can do is bind the spirit that is operating in or through them (Matthew 12:28-29, 16:19, 18:18). 

Loose them- “To lose something bound,” (Matthew 16:19, 18:18). 

Pray for them- Pray for those oppressed by devils and in sin. “And take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” (Ephesians 6:17-18; 2 Corinthians 4:4).

The Devil’s Open Door

When studying demonology, it must be kept in mind that the devil’s ultimate goal in a person’s life is bondage. The devil’s activities work toward one common purpose in every human’s life—to enslave and bind. When we give the devil an open door into our life, he will move in only to bind us. This is contrasted to the presence of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit’s work in our life brings us liberty (2 Corinthians 3:17). 

The devil is ever watchful, looking for a door into our lives. 

Be sober (watchful), be vigilant (stay awake); because your adversary as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour (gulp entire): Whom resist stedfast (phalanx) in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world {1 Peter 5:8-9} 

One day the angelscame to present themselves before the Lord, and Satanalso came with them. The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from? Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.” Check {Job 1:6-7}

Job 2:3 Satan is the enemy of our entire existence. The Bible teaches us he is ever on the move, looking for entrance into our lives. This lesson will look at the major ways in which we might open the door to the devil in our lives. 

Do I mean then that food sacrificed to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything?  No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants (partner, comrade, companion, fellowship) with demons. 1 Cor. 10:19-20. 

According to this verse, it is very possible for Christians to be partners, comrades, participators, and participants with demons; or simply just fellowship with them. 

THE BIG THREE

Satan cannot get a way in our lives and it will never win the battle, unless we open doors to him though participating in the following forms of sin:

Illicit Sex, 

Drugs,

Demon Worship

And of these three, demon worship is the quickest path to full demon possession. 

1, Demon Worship:  Worship is good, but it belongs only to God Almighty. The devil seeks to hijack man’s worship. Demon worship has many forms varying from the occult to pagan religions to pure Satanism. Satan lusts for man’s attention and these various avenues grant him the selfish attention he craves. These kinds of worship and super naturalism only produce bondage. 

Occult- the belief and study into supernatural, mystical, magical, or other paranormal activities and phenomena. The occult includes: 

Ouija boards 

Tarot cards 

Psychics

Astrology/Horoscopes

Hypnotism

Séances

Necromancy

Psychography- phantom writing 

Jewelry/trinkets

Fetishes/totems/idols

Pagan Religions- Other religions worship false deities and idols, also known as devils. These religions developed when demons appeared to their founders. To participate in their services is to expose yourself to doctrines of devils. 

Many of their worship styles have made their way to common American and even Church culture. These religions and religious practices include: 

Islam

Buddhism

Acupuncture

Transcendental Meditation 

Hinduism (complete and total worship of demons) 

Yoga- a school of Hindu philosophy that involves a series of postures and breathing exercises practiced to achieve tranquility. 

Meditation

Mormonism

Gaia (Earth Worship/Extreme Environmentalism) 

Wicca/Neo-paganism o Animism 

Satanism- Pure Satanism, or Satanic worship, is active and alive. Their worship of satan incorporates a satanic bible and includes both human and animal sacrifices. All Satanism includes the use of illicit drugs and perverse sexual activity. 

2, Illicit Drugs Medicine can be very good. It can be used to help treat sickness and cure disease. However, drugs can also be abused. Recreational drug use is demonic and dangerous.

Addiction to drugs is demonic and dangerous. The words pharmacy and pharmaceutical have their origins in the Greek word pharmakeia.

Pharmakeia- the use or administering of drugs; poisoning; sorcery, magical arts, (often in connection with idolatry and bolstered by it). 

Pharmakeus- one who prepares or uses magical remedies; a sorcerer.

The New Testament translates these words as sorcery and witchcraft. 

We use these words (pharmakeia) to describe the chemical side of modern medicine. The truth found here is that drugs not only affect your body, but they also affect your soul. The side effects are often worse than the relief provided. Unfortunately, addiction is a common side effect. Illicit drug use includes: 

Cocaine

Marijuana

Meth

Prescription drugs 

 Alcohol 

Tobacco

 Bath Salts 

Molly Etc. 

Drugs affect not only your body, but also your soul. Illicit drug users seem to also be open and active in illicit sex. 

3, Illicit Sex Illicit means forbidden. Sex is good, when kept in the confines of marriage. Illicit sex is forbidden for our good. Any sexual activity outside of holy matrimony is illicit sex. Fornication is sex outside of marriage. Sex is a powerful force and the Bible describes sexual sin in a way no other sin is described—sin against your own body (1 Corinthians 6:15-18). Illicit sex includes

Fornication

Adultery

Pornography

Homosexuality

Bisexuality

Bestiality

Swinging/Spouse Swapping 

Phone sex/sexting 

One-night-stands

 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that commiteth fornication sinneth against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18

EXTREME EMOTIONS 

Emotions are not bad. Every emotion we have was first found in God. Emotions are neutral. How we use them or allow them to use us will determine whether we are in sin or whether we are glorifying Jesus Christ. Emotions are how we react to the world around us. We must, however, use the Word of God to teach us what to do with these emotions. 

Without the Word as our guide, emotions can quickly open up the demon realm. Extreme emotions can include: 

Unforgiveness: Perhaps the greatest door opener (2 Corinthians 2:10-11). 

Anger: Be angry and sin not (Ephesian 4:26). 

Obsession (extreme love): This can quickly become idolatry. What are you consumed with? Inordinate affection (Colossians 3:5).

Jealousy: Specifically called a spirit in Numbers 5:14, 30. 

 Sorrow: The loss of a loved one. Post-partum depression. Any depression. 

Fear: God has not given us this spirit job 3:25. 

Greed (avarice, extreme desire for money): The love of money is the root of all evil. 

Extreme emotions will cause your heart to burn, but not for God. When these emotions consume you, they give way to demonic influences. Be mindful to keep all of your emotions moderated. Emotions give you expression; they are not to define you. A healthy person has a full range of emotions. Unhealthy people are either defined by only one or two strong emotions, e.g. fear, jealousy, or anger. Some people have no emotional expression at all. This is an indication of oppression

OTHER ODDITIES 

Martial Arts- Martial arts are a very slippery slope to play upon. Some martial arts can safely be studied and practiced as a sport similar to boxing or wrestling. Some martial arts can serve the purpose of self-defense. But some martial arts will quickly open the practitioner up to devils. There are demonized people in every field of martial arts. Be careful! 

Imaginary Friends- Jesus is the friend that sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). Never allow your children to have imaginary friends. These are demons that reveal themselves to children, often in times of adversity. 

RPGs- Role playing games. Any kind of game that requires you to take on another person, it’s dangerous. Most RPGs involve sorcery and magic. It is absolute foolishness for any Christian to be involved in these dangerous realms. 

Books, Movies, Music, and Video Games these are all creative medium that permit ideas, images, and messages to be communicated. Be very careful here

There are many doors to destruction, but only one door leads to heaven and its only Jesus Christ. Let us keep this door open in our lives through:

Our 24 hour call, turn with me in psalms 50:15, and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”
