One of the most basic realities of spiritual warfare is that Satan isn’t operating along. He has his own army of spirits beings called Demons who obey him and carry out his agenda. A demon is a fallen
angel who followed Satan in his rebellion ( Revelation 12:4 ). and now assist Satan’s program of opposition to God’s purpose, program and people. The existence of demons
has generally been either denied or caricatured by the world. Hollywood has always been fascinated by demonic, and many of the popular movies produced over the last few years
have featured demon- like forces or aliens bent on destroying the earth. But the Bible’s teaching about the true nature and purpose of demons has been largely rejected
by the world and even by many theologians and preachers. Credit Satan with doing a number on the minds of many people. We know that one of his best moves
is to camouflage himself so that people don’t know he’s there. But the Bible teaches that demons are real, and we need to understand their operation and their purposes.
We don’t need to fear demons, but because they are active troops in Satan’s army we need to know more about them so we can be more alert and experience greater
success in spiritual warfare. The Bible says that God created countless hosts of angels. Since one- third of the angels followed Satan in his rebellion and were judge
with him, you can imagine the vast array of demons Satan has at his command. According to ( Matthew 12:24-26 ), demons are part of Satan’s kingdom- and
notice that Jesus says there is no division in that realm. Satan is not about to cast out Satan. This is very important to understand. One reason that Satan’s
demonic regime is so successful and so powerful is because it is so unified. There are no benedict Arnold demons. These beings have been forever confirmed
in unrighteousness, just as the good angels who did not follow Satan have been forever confirmed in Holiness. No demon gets up in the morning
and says, I don’t feel like being a demon today. I want to repent and turn back to God, Demons are loyal to their evil leader, Satan. So let’s learn
more about these created, fallen angelic beings who help Satan push his agenda on the earth and in the Heavenly realms. God bless you tune in
next week and learn more about these created beings.
