VIII. MAIN BODY:

Luke 11:24 (Amplified Bible)

When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it roams through waterless places in search [of a place] of rest (release, refreshment, ease); and finding none it says, I will go back to my house from which I came.

Luke 11:24 (King James Version)

When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.

A. A fallen angel will walk through restless places and will find no rest because he can't go to GOD's Presence.

"When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it roams through waterless places in search [of a place] of rest (release, refreshment, ease); and finding none it says,"

Job 1:7 (Amplified Bible)

And the Lord said to Satan, From where did you come? Then Satan answered the Lord, From going to and fro on the earth and from walking up and down on it.

Job 2:2 (Amplified Bible)

And the Lord said to Satan, From where do you come? And Satan (the adversary and the accuser) answered the Lord, From going to and fro on the earth and from walking up and down on it.

1 Peter 5:8 (Amplified Bible)

Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

The problem is they can't stand GOD's Presence, when before their fallen state, they are guardians of GOD's glory.

Ezekiel 28:14 (Amplified Bible)

You were the anointed cherub that covers with overshadowing [wings], and I set you so. You were upon the holy mountain of God; you walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire [like the paved work of gleaming sapphire stone upon which the God of Israel walked on Mount Sinai].

Ezekiel 28:16 (Amplified Bible)

Through the abundance of your commerce you were filled with lawlessness and violence, and you sinned; therefore I cast you out as a profane thing from the mountain of God and the guardian cherub drove you out from the midst of the stones of fire.

Someone took the enemy's place of guarding GOD'S glory because the enemy is not worthy anymore to guard GOD's glory, he was casted out as a profane thing from GOD's mountain. Since we are tripartite being: spirit, soul and body, we have rest because of this tent that we live in, our physical bodies. While angels since they are only spirits, they only can have rest in GOD's Presence, so demons or fallen angels have no rest because they are not allowed in GOD'S Presence, they are casted out as a profane thing. They are called "it" because they are sexless.

The believers have rest in GOD because GOD will never leave, nor forsake us nor abandon us.

Deuteronomy 31:6 (Amplified Bible)

Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.

Hebrews 13:5 (Amplified Bible)

Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
