Are angels and demons real?

wondering if angels are real?

What do you believe about angels and demons?

Most of us have at least one question that comes to mind whenever people talk about God, faith, or church – that question that makes us unsure of God and if believing in Him makes any sense.


What does god say about demons?

We’re told in the Old Testament that God, in eternity past, created a wise, brilliant, and beautiful angel who was known as Lucifer. We’re told in Ezekiel 28 and Isaiah 14 that this angel became proud because of his stellar good looks and sought to ascend to the throne of God himself. He wanted to be like God, to reign as the sovereign king. He wanted to be God.

 As a result of his rebellion against God, Lucifer and his band of rebellious, free-willed followers were cast out of heaven forever. Even though he aspired to be, Satan is not God. He is not self-existent, not sovereign, omnipotent, omniscient, or omnipresent – but he is the ultimate liar and schemer. 2 Corinthians 11:14

The Bible references angels over 108 times in the Old Testament and 165 times in the New Testament.

if angels and demons are unseen what should our response be?

In Priscilla Shirer’s Bible study The Armor of God, she says, “When Paul talks about spiritual warfare in Ephesians 6, prayer is the seventh piece of armor. It activates all of the rest of the spiritual armor. . . . “When we refuse to pray, it’s like having a refrigerator without plugging it in. Without prayer, we’ll be ineffective in spiritual warfare. But with it, we will be victorious.” The last thing Satan wants to happen is for us to get connected to Jesus and find abundant and eternal life, because the father of lies knows that it’s the truth that sets a person free.
