Demons are angels who decided to follow Lucifer the archangel in his insurrection against God. They could therefore be safely called “the fallen angels”. (Rev. 12:4,7-9).

Jesus personally called some beings angel of the devil (Matt. 25:41) while the Pharisees even in their religious ignorance recognize the existence of demons/devils (Matt. 12:24).

The Nature of Demons:

1. They are evil. There are no good demons. In fact they carry out the wishes and commands of Satan their master. (I Sam. 10-11).

2. They are intelligent and wise (I King 22:22-24).

3. They have knowledge and feelings Acts 19:15, Matt. 8:29.

4. They are spirit beings without body, Lk. 24:29 they are rather very desperate to live in a borrowed body.

5. They have miraculous powers and can deceive. (Rev. 16:13-16).

Where Does Demons Live?

1. Principally demons live in the air above the earth (Eph. 2:2).

There are three heaven in the least.

(a) The first heaven – the air space around us.

(b) The second heaven – this is where Satan reigns

(c) The third heaven – this is where the throne of God is (2 Cor. 12:1-4)

The second heaven is referred to as high places (Eph. 6:12).

2. Demons also live in evil places and places where crime and murders have been committed.

3. Demon can inhabit humans and when they are desperate can enter into animals. Mk. 5:2,8,12.

Some things Demons Can Do

1. They can teach ( I Tim. 4:1); in which case they teach errors.

2. They can tell fortunes (Acts 16:16-17). What they say could be absolutely true, it is however for a different reason. In the text the reason was so that people could think Paul and Silas were in league with demons.

3. They can imitate departed dead (I Sam. 28:3-9).

4. They can go out and come back into men as they will except they are cast out and rejected Matt. 12:43-45.

5. Demons can also travel Mk. 5:7,12
