Satan And His Demons

Posted on December 13, 2007

The earliest known records of mankind’s belief in Satan and demons appear in the Jewish writings from about 300 BC (Around 2,300 years ago). Within 200 years the beliefs and concepts concerning Satan and demons became very well developed in the Palestine region. Within another 200 years this concept spread out as far away as Ireland and Europe.

Probably, the most widespread, generalized belief is that Satan and demons are fallen angels with Satan being the ‘leader’. Satan is viewed as the enemy of God and the embodiment of evil.

There can be a lot of confusion in the paranormal world as to just what is responsible for certain events, but most paranormal experts agree that a demon and a ghost are not the same thing.

Of course, there are many who do not believe in the existence of Satan or demons. That is not the point of this article. My purpose here is only to shed light on some history behind the now worldwide knowledge about Satan and demons.

Personally, I do believe that demons are real. I do not however, believe that a ghost is a demon. With that in mind it would only follow that some hauntings, or poltergeists, may actually be demonic activity.

Here are a few quotes from the Bible about Satan and demons:

Isaiah 14:12:�”How are thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”

Jude 1:6: “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”

Revelation 12:9: “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

    Excellent article.

    The battle of good v evil has existed since the beginning of time. For instance; caveman viewing dinosaur as the big bad. Its human nature to revert to this when we feel threatened.

    However, I believe. I’ve recently started experiencing things ever since I’ve found my belief. Makes you wonder doesn’t it?

    Thank you for posting this.
