Distinctions Between Demons and Fallen Angels

Through my observation and study of Scripture, I have come to believe, quite confidently, that demons cannot be fallen angels.

Now, I know that idea will be rather jarring for some people. It may seem that I am not only challenging a widely held traditional view but also contradicting very clear teachings of the Bible. Well, the idea that demons are not fallen angels certainly contradicts tradition. But in no way does it contradict Scripture.

The Bible speaks of demons, and it speaks of the fall of Lucifer and the co-rebellion of a third of the angels, but no verses actually link the two and define demons as fallen angels. The idea that demons are fallen angels is simply a long-held tradition. The Bible actually gives three subtle distinctions between demons and fallen angels, and I want to explore each one here.

Demons Need Bodies

Demons seek to possess bodies and seem rather uncomfortable being outside of them. Take for instance the story of a man possessed by an entire legion of demons. While being cast out, the demons in that story begged Jesus to send them into a herd of pigs:

There happened to be a large herd of pigs feeding in the distance. So the demons begged, “If you cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine” (Matt. 8:30–31, MEV).

Fallen angels, however, can appear in physical form and even interact with mankind. In Genesis fallen angels even procreated with women. The bizarre procreation resulted in the birth of giants.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown” (Gen. 6:4, KJV).

For that procreation, God punished the “sons of God” by binding them in “everlasting chains” until the day of judgment (Jude 6). Keep in mind that every reference to “sons of God” in the Old Testament was a reference to supernatural beings or angels. Only in the New Testament does “sons of God” refer to the redeemed children of God. So we know that it wasn’t ordinary men, as some might suggest, who procreated with the “daughters of men.” Had those referred to in Genesis 6:4 been mere ordinary men, there would be no clear reason their procreation would produce giants.

Some also suggest that perhaps “sons of God” referred to a select group of people who were forbidden to procreate with a certain other group. Still, that would not explain why their union produced giants or why God punished their actions so harshly.

There are others still who say angels cannot breed, citing Matthew 22:30: “For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like the angels of God in heaven” (MEV). But that verse tells us only that angels do not marry. Angels can still have a gender and appear to mankind in earthly bodies. The book of Hebrews tells us that angels can actually walk around among us without being noticed.

“Do not forget to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unknowingly” (Heb. 13:2, MEV).

Consider also the angels at Christ’s empty tomb. “While they were greatly perplexed concerning this, suddenly two men stood by them in shining garments (Luke 24:4, MEV).

Also, the men of Sodom desired to have sex with the angels that appeared to Lot. How could that be unless the angels had bodies and looked like human beings?

“ow the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting at the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them he rose up to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground. … Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. 5 They then called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, so that we may have relations with them” (Gen. 19:1, 4-5, MEV).

From Scripture, we see that both fallen angels and holy angels have bodies. In contrast, demons greatly desire bodies because they do not have them. Demons are clingy, needy, angry, tormented creatures. That is the first distinction between fallen angels and demons.

Demons Wander the Earth

Demons are cursed to wander the earth while fallen angels still have the ability to stand before God in heavenly places. Though they were banished from heaven, the fallen angels still gave an account of their doings.

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and the Adversary also came among them (Job 1:6, MEV).

I’ll give you a few good reasons to believe fallen angels, and not just heavenly angels, were among those who stood before God in the story recorded in the Book of Job. First, the devil was no longer Lucifer, for the Book of Job refers to him as “Satan.” Second, we also know that Satan was in his fallen state because later in the story of Job he sought to steal from, kill and destroy Job. As Jesus said, “The thief’s does not come, except to steal and kill and destroy … “ (John 10:10, MEV).

Third, we know from the following verse that Job’s story took place after the great flood, which means it definitely took place after the fall of both man and Satan.

“Will you keep to the old way, that wicked men have trod? They were cut down before their time; their foundations were swept away by a flood” (Job 22:15–16, MEV).

So if Satan in his fallen state was among the angels who had to give an account in Job, it is consistent to believe that other fallen angels were called upon as well. Fallen angels can appear in heavenly places. Therefore, fallen angels are not completely bound to earth. Demons, however, can only wander the earth or live in a body, as Jesus explained:

“When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through dry places seeking rest, but finds none” (Matt. 12:43, MEV).

Nowhere in Scripture do we see demons moving from the earth to God’s presence. Those accounts are always referring to fallen angels.

Demons Are Called ‘Devils’ and ‘Unclean Spirits’

When referring to fallen angels, New Testament scriptures do not use the terms demons, devils or unclean spirits. Instead, the Bible makes reference to fallen angels by simply using a negative description or context. For example, these verses clearly describe fallen angels:

For if God did not spare the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness to be kept for judgment …” (2 Peter 2:4, MEV).

“Likewise, the angels who did not keep to their first domain, but forsook their own dwelling, He has kept in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day” (Jude 1:6, MEV).

“Then He will say to those at the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire, prepared for the devil and his angels'” (Matt. 25:41, MEV).

In these verses there is no mention of demons or devils. Instead, to make a distinction between God’s holy angels and fallen angels, the New Testament simply calls them the angels “that sinned” or “which kept not their first estate.”

Apart from the simple use of negative descriptions, the New Testament also uses context to draw distinctions between fallen angels and holy angels. An example of this is when, in Matthew 25:41, hell is described as a place prepared for the devil and his angels. The angels in that verse were said to belong to the devil, so it is obvious that they were fallen.

Furthermore, in the following verse, while making a strong point about the need to avoid false gospels, Paul the Apostle mentions angels “from heaven.”

“Although if we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel to you than the one we have preached to you, let him be accursed” (Gal. 1:8, MEV).

Of course, it’s obvious that one should reject the gospel of a fallen angel, but it might not have been as obvious to the Galatians that they should reject a different gospel from even a holy angel. To drive his point home, Paul essentially warns, “Even if one of the angels from heaven should preach to you another gospel, do not be deceived.” In other words, “Don’t be swayed even if one of the good guys starts to preach a different gospel.”

Paul’s warning is an example of how the New Testament contrasts both fallen and holy angels. No special term is used to describe fallen angels; they are simply described in a negative way and/or placed in a negative context. Demons, on the other hand, are referred to as “devils,” “unclean spirits” and “demons.”

Asmodeus

“Wow, you’ve just opened up a whole new understanding of the workings of the Asmodeus spirit within family interpersonal relations. It is, indeed, assigned to many as a means of destruction of the cohesion of God’s idea of family. Indeed, this was a stronghold in my

Demon-lord
own relation with my ex- which later sought to move on to my children as a generational/familiar spirit. This one, very violent, had to be dealt with … that is, thanks to the prayer team of Pastor CK Quarterman. May it roam in dry places and not return forever…

Testimony of LJ

At one point I had the perfect life, in my opinion.

It was I and my younger brother, mom and dad. I had another brother that lived with his dad. Things started to go downhill when dad passed away and my older brother moved in with us. My mother had been having an affair which we found out about when the man she was having an affair with came knocking on our door! Mom packed our stuff and moved us in with him. She became an alcoholic. I begin acting out, mad that I wasn’t with

freedom
my dad. About a year later my brother started molesting me and it went on and became a nightmare from hell for the next three years. I finally had enough of the abuse and I ran away. I was gone for days before the police found me. I then was forced to move in with my dad. I became very promiscuous and actually ended up getting pregnant at the age of fifteen. When my mom heard I was pregnant she called me every name in the book! Some names I had never heard! I hadn’t heard a single word from her in the past three years, then out of the blue here she is cussing me. My dad was set on me not keeping my child to the extent that he had adoptive parents waiting in the next room while I gave birth. Thank the LORD, my mom came and for some reason put a stop to it! Why out of character. My daughter and I then moved in with my mother for a month. Later, I moved in with my sister who was pagan (a witch), that’s when the problems really started! I again got pregnant and I gave this child up for adoption.

Things at my sister’s house were crazy! You would hear people talking, things would move around, and things would happen that was far from normal, I might even say paranormal. I mistakenly had my sister read my tarot cards a few times just to see what they said, being only seventeen I had no idea how dangerous communicating with spirits could be. Things in that home got so out of control! I and my daughter had to move out. We settled in our new home, but could tell things were not right. Something followed us, ” an entity of some type”. I would later learn that this entity was a demon. At the time I didn’t think it was anything bad. It made noises from time to time to let us know it was there. I had just had our daughter and had to move again. I was sure it wouldn’t follow us. Well it did! Not long after we moved again, it followed us again. About this time I found out my fiancé was sleeping with his ex-wife, and he later ended up going to jail. Shortly after that I ran into an ex-boyfriend and we begin sleeping together. I again I got pregnant. I made the choice to have an abortion.

When my fiancé got out of jail we got married and had a son. We moved several times, but every house we moved to this demon followed us. I was always so mad, hateful, and I treated my middle child horribly. I also went through a stealing phase. During this time my husband ended up cheating on me again and having an affair, so I filed for a divorce. I and the kids stayed in the home. We kept feeling like something was there and watching us! When a friend came over I said, “I’ve had a ghost follow me for years” she looked at me and said it’s not a ghost it’s a demon! That very minute the air got thick. I flipped out! I didn’t have a clue what to do. We also started hearing growling noises and smelling sulfur.

My friend told me to call Dr. CK Quarterman, so I did. My oldest daughter and I asked Jesus to come into our hearts while we prayed with Dr. Quarterman. I and my daughter prayed to be saved while on the phone with Dr. Quarterman. The demon didn’t want to leave and it took several prayer sessions with Dr. CK Quarterman to get us delivered. We have now started going to church and I along with my oldest daughter got anointed at church. I am thankful that this demon pushed me to our heavenly father’s arms. I am now free from these awful demons.

I was being tormented by a demon

I was being tormented by a demon,

it had portrayed its self as my best friend whom I lost in 2007. Even though I believed in Jesus Christ I had questioned GOD and why the things were happening to us. The things we went thru as a family no mother should ever have to go thru with her child. It was heart breaking and I lost my faith. I had been being tormented for about three weeks and had prayed and commanded this demon out. I was looking on the internet for help. I found 

freedom from masterbuation
author CK Quarterman, I sent him a email he called me that night. We talked and tried to figure out how the demon came in. The next night on the prayer line, my husband and my self were delivered. After a few days the demon left completely. It was not tormenting me anymore. I prayed for God to send me some help, an he sent me Dr. CK Quarterman and the rest of the prayer group. I am soooo thankful an my life has changed. I am saved. I pray if someone is going thru this just let Jesus in your heart, everything happens for a reason. God didn’t stop the demon before it started, because I believe it was so that I could have a close relationship with Jesus. This happening was a blessing in disguise and this has made me a better mother an wife. I have a stronger faith than ever before. I am truly blessed thank you Jesus an thanks again Dr. CK Quarterman and the prayer group. I once was but now I am found, I truly know the meaning of that now!

EVIL SPIRITS

 The Bible teaches that there are “Foul spirits”.

 

 1. UNCLEAN SPIRITS:

    ~Matt 10:1~ (~Mark 6:7~) “(Jesus) …he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast 

fourhorseman
them out,…..”

    ~Mark 5:8-9~ “(Jesus) For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.”

   ~Acts 8:7~ “For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them:”

2. FAMILIAR SPIRITS:

Those with “Familiar spirits” are the ones that people sometimes go to, in order to know the future.

    ~Lev 19:31~ “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”

    ~Lev 20:6~ “And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.”

3. A SPIRIT OF DIVINATION:

This “spirit” is stronger than “Familiar spirits”, but is very much like it. (1Thess. 2:5)

     ~Acts 16:16~ “And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:”

    ~Ezekiel 12:24~ “For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination…..”

    ~Ezekiel 13:7~ “Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?”

4. DUMB & DEAF SPIRITS:

    ~Mark 9:25-26~ “When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him:”

    ~Mark 9:29~ (You need to fast and pray to deliver Dumb & Deaf spirits) “And he (Jesus) said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.”

5. EVIL SPIRITS:

    ~Luke 7:21~ “And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.”

    ~Luke 8:2~ “And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,”

6. THE SPIRIT OF WHOREDOMS:

This “spirit” can cause two types of “Whoredoms”; ‘spiritual’ Whoredoms which leads to idolatry

Ex. 34:14-16; Eze. 14:3-5, and ‘physical’ Whoredoms which leads to fornication & adultery.

     ~Hosea 4:12-13~ “My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God. They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.”

7. THE SPIRIT OF JEALOUSY:

It causes a lack of trust, and suspicion of everyone and everything. It can cause the person to become violent and have fits of rage and anger. (Prov. 29:22)

     ~Num 5:14~ (~Num 5:30~) “And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:”

    ~Proverbs 6:34~ “For jealousy is the rage of a man:”

8. THE SPIRIT OF BONDAGE:

This is the “devil” that can cause people to become addicted to drugs, alcohol, tobacco, etc

    ~Rom 8:15~ “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

    ~Gal 5:1~ “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”

9. A LYING SPIRIT:

This is the “spirit” that may be the cause of habitual lying, particularly in young people.

 

    ~I King 22:22-23~ ~2 Chr 18:21-22~ “And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.”

    ~Prov 6:16-17~ “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,”

    ~Prov 12:22~ “Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.”

10. THE SPIRIT OF FEAR:

     ~2 Tim 1:7~ “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

    ~I Jn 4:18~ “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

11. A SPIRIT OF INFIRMITY:

This “spirit” is the cause of many people’s sicknesses and infirmities. When they get delivered, they usually get healed.

    ~Luke 13:11-13~ “And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.”

12. A BLIND SPIRIT:

    ~Matt 12:22~ “Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.”

13. SPIRIT OF ANTI-CHRIST:

    ~I Jn 4:3~ “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”

14. SPIRIT OF ERROR:

    ~I Jn 4:5-6~ “They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”

 

15. THE HAUGHTY SPIRIT:

Causes people to feel great pride in themselves, and to trust too much in their own understandings.

    ~Prov 16:18~ “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”

16. SEDUCING SPIRITS:

These are the worst kind of spirit, they whisper sweet seducing things into the believers ears, teaching them false doctrines and leading them away from the faith.

    ~1 Timothy 4:1~ “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;”

CONCLUSION:

    ~1 Cor 12:7-8, 10~ (First, ask the Holy Spirit for the “discernment of spirits”) “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit… To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits”

What about Christians? We have no doubt that Christians can be influenced, harassed, oppressed, or be in bondage to devils there is no doubt, otherwise the admonition to put on the whole armor of God would make little sense, and all the warnings about deceptions and resisting the devil would be a waste of space. Casting out devils is a very simple process. It is a matter of knowing and exercising your authority through Christ’s name! The actual principal of casting out devils is very simple and strait forward. The basic requirement is that you are a Christian filled by the Holy Ghost, you know the authority you have in Christ over those spirits, and that you are prepared to exercise your authority through faith.

Here Jesus cast out devils by name:

    ~Mark 9:25~ “When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.”

    ~Mark 5:8~ “For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.”

Confirming the Word with Signs Following

The other night we prayed with a mother of a 28 year old for deliverance from oppression, and while we were at it we prayed a prayer with her about her son. We received this testimony today.

The “short” prayer for my son has had great effect…I did NOT tell him we prayed for him.

Praying Woman
Randomly today he told me that for the past two days he feels that his mind is more at rest, and his thinking is much more clear!! The prayer may have been short but was powerful, with everyone in agreement. I THEN told him we prayed for him TWO nights ago!!! and told him he can can contact you if he wants more prayer. I hope he does! Thank you again.

Mark 16:20  And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Invisible Forces

A true Biblical study of invisible phenomenon is where the researcher consciously ignores the natural tendency to jump to conclusions, and analyzes his perceptions based upon Scripture.
demons-possed

Invisible forces have confused and frightened both nonprofessionals and scientists for centuries, but ignoring them regardless of how scary they may be is not an option.

One might suggest ignoring the supernatural in hopes that it might go away. However, this just does not work because something is causing a very large number of people to have frightening experiences. Any scientist or layperson will admit this. Television is rampant with the occult and its myriad of invisible forces.

Our inability to understand even our own first-hand experiences with invisible forces leads many to draw conclusions about those experiences that are incorrect, because they are based on existing folklore, incorrect beliefs, or cultural biases rather than Scripture.

A stroke in the night by an invisible entity might be an alien visitation for one person, a ghost, or a demon to another. An orb shooting overhead in the sky becomes a UFO sighting for the Ufologist, a ghost sighting for the ghost hunter, or a spiritual doorway for the New Ager. A picture moving on its own becomes a demonic visitation for one person, psychokinesis for another or a ghost. A person may believe that they have seen an alien or ghost, when in fact they have seen demonic activity.

To understand what a person has experienced we must look to Scripture.
Scripture says many things about invisible forces. “We need to ask some very serious questions and demand some very serious answers.” There are many who sit in the church and remain stunted in their development. This must end!

Can a Christian have a Demon

CHRISTIANS AND DEMONS

Can a Christian have a demon? When I began searching the Word of God about the matter of demons oppressing Christians, I discovered that the issue is not as conclusive as I had once

Demon-lord
thought. It seems Christians are open to sickness, disease, and evil in every why as the nonbeliever. I erroneously thought the Holy Spirit and an evil spirit could not dwell in the same vessel, that light and darkness cannot coexist. The simple truth is that Satan cannot invade the spirit of the believer, but can surely “demonize”, afflict and in some cases possess his body and mind; otherwise, the admonition to put on the whole armor of God would make little sense.

We are composed of three parts: a body, a mind (soul) and a spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:23). The spirit of a Christian belongs to God, and their spirit is united with the Holy Spirit, but their bodies and minds (souls) can still be afflicted, “demonized”, or even possessed by evil spirits. Think in terms of a glass of water. An evil spirit can possess the glass of water, but never own or be inside of it, hence our spirits are safe it is our souls and bodies that come under attack and need devils cast out of them.

Demons can, in some cases, even take over a Christian’s mind and speak through his lips (Matthew 16:22). I have seen demons control the psycho-motor functions of Christians, even putting them in a trance like state to speak through them.
