Does the Bible say What the Devil, Satan, or Demons look like?

by Jack Wellman · Print Print · Email Email

Have you ever wondered what Satan or the Devil looks like?  What about demons?  What are their appearances?  Does the Bible say what Satan or the demons look like?  Are demons fallen angels?  Is so, why did they fall away and did they become demons?

What Satan Does Not Look Like

First of all, the images of Satan or the Devil with horns and a pitchfork are inaccurate according to the Bible.  If we use the Bible as our authority, then the Devil looks nothing like we can imagine. His name originally was Lucifer and he was described like a bright morning star.  Satan was the greatest of all of God’s creation.  The greatest of all the angels and the most powerful being that God has ever created, including any human being ever made.  When he was created by God, there was nothing like him in the entire universe and in all of God’s creation.

In Hebrew, the name Satan means “the accuser”.  And the Bible describes him as the accuser of the brethren or the saints of God in Revelation 12:10, “For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night.” The Devil is sometimes, shockingly, behind a pulpit and spewing forth false gospels as he appears as an angel of light, yet he is the father of lies (2 Cor. 11:14).

Satan; Created in Power and Beauty

In Ezekiel 28:12-18 you will find God describing him:  “Thus says the Lord GOD, You had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The ruby, the topaz, and the diamond; The beryl, the onyx, and the jasper; The lapis lazuli, the turquoise, and the emerald; And the gold, the workmanship of your settings and sockets, was in you. On the day that you were created they were prepared. You were the anointed cherub who covers, and I placed you there. You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked in the midst of the stones of fire. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created. Until unrighteousness was found in you.”

So Satan was created a cherub and he  originally was “the anointed cherub that covered” the very throne of God. He was perfect and “blameless”.  Reading God’s description in Ezekiel, you see all the precious stones that have ever been created are a covering of his: gold, emeralds, jasper, and so on.  He was “full of wisdom and beauty” but his pride lifted up his self-worth and he became “unrighteousness” before God.

Satan’s Power and Rank

Satan was of the highest rank of all angels created; greater in power and rank than Michael and Gabriel.  But Satan’s pride caused his downfall and he managed to convince about 1/3 of the angels to rebel with him and these rebellious angels became demons.  This is explained in Revelation where “…another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems. And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven, and threw them to the earth” (Rev. 12:3-4).  They too are powerful but not as powerful as Satan or as Michael or Gabriel.  Satan also convinced Eve to take from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.  Regardless of what you have read or heard, it was not an apple. We really don’t know what it was on that tree but the fact is Eve and her husband Adam disobeyed God and were cast out of the Garden of Eden, just like Satan was cast out of heaven.

What Satan and Demons Look Like

So Satan is a cherub angel. What do cherubs look like?  If you could actually see an angel, they would frighten you.  They are not the chubby little angelic and winged baby-looking creatures you see pictured so often.  In fact, not all angels have wings.  But a cherub, in particular Satan, is enormous in size, power, and strength.  Every cubit is 1.5 feet (18 inches) and so I have formulated the cubits per feet in measuring just how big these demons and Satan are.   Satan himself and all other cherubs stand 18 feet tall!   However Satan is the most powerful of all beings that God ever created in the universe.  Satan and likely, a number of his demon, have wing spans of 8 feet long and under each of their four wings there were what looked like the hands of a man (Ezek. 10:8).  They had not only four wings but they had four faces too (Ezek. 10:21)!   Imagine how frightened Ezekiel was when he was recording this in Ezekiel chapter ten.

Satan and likely most of the demons entire body, including their back, their hands, and their wings were completely full of eyes, including the four wheels they had (Ezek.10:12). Their four faces where faces of a cherub, a man, an eagle, and a lion (Ezek. 10:14).  Similar creatures or angels that may have become fallen were likely those that were over the Most Holy.  These had six wings and one looked like an ox, another like a lion, one like a man, and another like that of an eagle (Rev. 4:6-8).   Satan and these fallen angels are spirit beings and so, thankfully, they can not be seen because they would be terrifying to anyone.  Even so, Satan and his demons are subject to God’s sovereignty and can do nothing over and against the will of God and are not allowed to take human lives (Job chapter one and two).

Satan Deceives and Blinds the Whole World

Satan has deceived the whole world and much of the world doesn‘t even know he exists (Rev. 12:9).  In fact he has blinded the eyes of those who are lost so that they can not see the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 4:4).  If you don’t know Christ as Savoir and Lord, as far as God is concerned, you are blind too.  Here’s how you can have the scales removed.  Mark 10:46-52 tells us how:

“Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.”

I too was once blind and a poor beggar and could not see the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ, but God gave me the free gift of faith and now I can see.  And like the blind man who could now see and received my sight, I “…followed Jesus along the road.”  Will you follow Him too?  I pray you will.

Thank Bill for your expression revealing what you believe about the Holy Scriptures as God inspired them .

I believe that the Bible is NOT myth nor from any other than God’s inspiration of holy men of God as He moved them …just as the Word claims to be and actually does prove itself as we continue to study it .

For one thing…Moses was raised in Pharaoh’s house and by those who were very much invested in the things of Egyptian thought and practice.

That MOSES was raised in the methods of medical treatment which often used to apply dung to open wounds and other treatments which often led to further illness and death and yet in his writings he brings much wisdom that was NOT learned from his childhood upbringing in Egyptian culture but was by revelation from GOD ….is supportive of his knowledge not coming from tradition or myths of men but from divine inspiration from our Creator.

Just one of the things that leads me to believe in scriptures being God breathed rather than based upon tradition , historical or mythical origins.

Perhaps those practices that are thought to ‘predate’ the scriptures were actually from those cultures which defected from the Lord’s directions and are more founded in those people groups who worshiped other gods.

In any case that article was one that I thought useful to further interest in study of the word of God and seeking what God would reveal to those who believe as He has instructed us to with meekness to Him and trust that ongoing pursuit of what He wrote to us would be rewarded with understanding that is revealed truth.

You make a presumption with this statement …”we well-read honest Christians have always struggled to extract god’s word from the ancient myths it came embedded in”

That those who do not think as you do are NOT ‘well read nor honest ….’ and the reference to ‘struggling to extract god’s word from ancient myths’ belies your point of view of scripture…It presumes that those who do take scripture to be truth …and to believe in God working IN us to bring understanding are somehow ‘deficient ‘ or ‘not as sophisticated’ is a rather arrogant in the least and ignorant at length statement of opinion.

I think sometimes the idea that those who take the Bible literally are not as well educated as those who have a more ‘Gnostic’ point of view . I have found many very well educated people demonstrate what I believe the Bible teaches is ‘humility’ in the form of submitting to GOD and trusting what HE will bring to our understanding as we continue to study and seek what He has for us to learn.

Hbr 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

I acknowledge I have MUCH to learn from the study of the Word as I go along and GOD has not withheld any from me …more likely any area which we are not fully understanding may come from the mind clouded with various things we have gained in life having lived in the world prior to our coming to faith and desire to follow Him

Presently there are those who mix in many of the things which were actually forbidden practices . Identified in part by the term ‘New Age’ …but are actually from old …many things from pagan and fallen theologies NOT approved by the Lord.

One such thing I have come across as I have been willing to examine was a recent rise of something called ‘Astro theology’ . It is contrary to the Word of GOD …which …being truth and not myth or any kind of mixture of past societies …exposes error IF we are willing to seek truth through our Lord and His guidance through the scriptures …causing them to be understood as HE intends them to be. Referencing the stars as above the Word of GOD is dangerous territory …even as Zoasterians were among those mentioned in scripture.

The mention of some people group or religion in scripture does not assume it’s approval by GOD but often is to put in contrast the fate of those who were involved in such practices with those who God has work in and through throughout His relationship with men recorded for us to learn about in the Bible.

2Pe 3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

2 Cor 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

4 In whom the god of this world hath BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH BELIEVED NOT, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.

6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

If you cast aspersions upon the Word of GOD you cast aspersions upon the LORD who IS the WORD incarnate and fully capable to set the truth in words for man to study and pursue what HE will reveal through them.

Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Psa 33:4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

Psa 119:160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

Jhn 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

The Bible is NOT made up of myths PERIOD….it is crucial for instruction in righteousness and GOD has watched over it …He brings it to pass every jot and tittle.

Jhn 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and RECEIVETH NOT MY WORDS, hath one that judgeth him: THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN , THE SAME SHALL JUDGE HIM in the last day.

If you think the Bible is based upon myths that superior scholars must unravel for the believer to sort out …I believe you are mistaken . If the Bible cannot be understood by leaning and learning from the Lord ‘s working in us as we trust and study then we are without any substantial and trustworthy source.

This is the aim of the Serpent in the garden and ongoing work of the god of this world …to oppose and deny the scripture’s worthiness to be trusted.

It is the very FOUNDATION of our faith to trust in the scriptures laid down by holy men of GOD who were moved by the Holy Spirit….not from men, mythology or culture.

Eph 2:19 ¶ Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Eph 2:20 And are built upon THE FOUNDATION of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

2 Peter 3
King James Version (KJV)
3 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:

2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Regardless of what you have read or heard, it was not an apple nor was it even mentioned that it was fruit. We really don’t know what it was on that tree but the fact is Eve and her husband Adam disobeyed God and were cast out of the Garden of Eden, just like Satan was cast out of heaven.

..In gen 3:2,3..it is mentioned it is a fruit .

Thank you for the blog.it is very useful.

It was a mistranslation ending with the word Malus for Apple in Hebrew or Greek.
The point was God said don`t but they did ending up with them knowing right from wrong,and disobeying God.
Being any fruit was meaningless.

Anthony…you are exactly right. It doesn’t matter if it was a pumpkin or a squash…the main thing is that they disobeyed God and that it was wrong so that is the main point of the verse and we ought not to split hairs over whether it was fruit a vegetable or a cabbage patch but that they sinned and your comment was straight to the point my friend. Great comment and thank you friend.

Thanks Jack for explaining it so well,and you give me confidence in what you say.
Their are quite a few misinterpretations that are translated wrong in the bible.
Example- Did Jesus ride into jerusalem on a Donkey,Ass,or a colt.
I came across this and it`s something to do with the Colt I think.
The guy was explaining Contradictions which are not, but misinterpretations by the translators.
When you think King James had about 60 translators working on the Bible and he wanted it to be has accurate has he could,but they were working with Hebrew,Latin. and quite a few others languages.
When one translator wasn`t sure it was passed around the other 60 translators to get it right.
It took King James some time to finnish his interpretation of the Bible,but it was worth it,because it`s known has the most trusted Bible their is,and you have the King James Bible Jack.
Thanks again for your words of confidence Jack.

Thanks Anthony….no translation is perfect but we do know that the plain things are the main things and the main things (Acts 16:30-31, Acts 4:12, Rom 10:9-13, John 3:16-18) are clear and that is enough to snatch us out of the lake of fire into the New Jerusalem that is coming soon.

Just to share. While in prayer begging the Holy Spirit for understanding of one parable it was then revealed to me. The parable of the Mustard Seed was the one in question. And it goes: The ‘Reign of God’ is likened to a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it becomes the largest of shrubs, and that the birds come and build their nests in its branches.”

The image then given to me at age 27 was of a heart covered with tiny pour like openings where only a mustard seed could penetrate. The second image came as a worm blue blanket covering the heart. I realized somehow that the mustard seed represented humility (the perfection of love) that has the ability to infiltrate hearts and the warm blue blanket that at first appeared comfortable represented Pride (the opposite of humility/charity) that in the end smothers hearts. Even though this appeared at first clear to me as clear meaning it was only after years later that I grew to understand a fuller meaning. By experience and now at age 65 still trying to grasp its become a matter of how this relates personally in my everyday life’s actions. As of late I’ve come to realize that Humility vs Pride can have no share in a same given moment or space in time. One by choice is either in one state or the other. This parable as it relates Humility vs Pride relates Heaven vs Hell, and in the end we choose the state of being for all eternity. Pride creeps in our daily actions and more times than not unbeknownst due to our blindness. Even in a simple act to verbally rebel against another is an act which feeds pride. Like candy it can be very addicting. Our trial here on earth is to perfect humility/love to the best of our ability in order to become one with Love/God for all eternity. This however, requires our yearning for God and his grace to battle our human weakness as we yearn for our eternal reward to be with Him in Heaven. God is fully aware of our weaknesses and He will always be there for us should we ask for His Divine loving assistance. To know and believe in God is our only hope for in the end our reality will be our choice for humility or pride, Heaven vs Hell, neither of which will co-exist. To know and love God requires a conscience as well. For as the one who does not know God, when faced at the end with God and Hell, the one who knows God will be more inclined to say, “Dear God, I’m so sorry for having offended You I’d even suffer Hell for You.” Where as the one who does not know God would be more inclined to say, “Oh God, please don’t send me to Hell, I’ll do anything you want.” The difference here is evident of love vs pride or selflessness vs self.

1Jo 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

There is a type of ‘humble’ behavior which is a feigned sort…of the flesh.
This kind is not submissive to the Lord and is actually a form of pride.

1Jo 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

Then there is the type which is to ‘humble’ oneself to the LORD and HIS Word .

Mat 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

It is the attitude of recognizing our need for a Savior and as we are ‘humble’ and meek we will receive HIS WORD with meekness .

Jas 1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

Gal 5:22 But the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Gal 5:24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

The flesh is ‘crucified’ by this …

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The ‘seed’ that the Word of GOD speaks of is this …

1Pe 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

The ONLY opportunity to determine our eternity is this …

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

It is while we yet live we may seek Him and submit to His Word . The humility that is OF THIS world is a posture and nothing is gained by it.

To seek the Lord and receive His gift from His having sacrificed for full payment of our sins because HE always did the will of His Father , God ….HE is the only one who qualified to offer us salvation.

The attitude of the heart must be ‘submitted’ or ‘humbled ‘ to HIM during one’s lifetime.

To be meek or to be humble is not an act but it is a heart condition whereby we are made able to obey the Lord by way of HIS spirit which He offers to us through Jesus Christ which then is ‘birthed’ in those who receive that Word with meekness.

Jesus said…

Jhn 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Gal 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall NO FLESH be justified.

Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do MIND the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Rom 8:8 So then they that are IN the flesh cannot please God

Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, IF so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.
Now if any man HAVE NOT the Spirit of CHRIST, he is NONE of HIS.

Rom 8:13 For if ye live AFTER the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye THROUGH the SPIRIT do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

It is through HIS SPIRIT which HE gave us through HIS WORD that we are born again and then walk IN that Word …thus we have our heart circumcised …the fleshly is ‘cut asunder’ as we walk according to HIS word…THIS is true MEEKNESS and HUMBLENESS.

1 Peter 4
King James Version (KJV)
4 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.

6 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

So beings that angels can be 18 feet tall…as large as trees…could the blind man actually seen angels walking around and not “trees walking around” ? I just find it interesting that Jesus wanted the man to answer this way…I understand that Jesus wanted us to see that the man could not see completely yet which ties in with our blindness to the actual biblical meanings and still being young to Christianity but why the walking trees…maybe I’m reading to deeply but it seems like a lesson and a supernatural event tied into one. I mean the man wouldn’t just say “walking trees” for something to say…he actually SAW this occur with blurry vision. Even with blurry vision seeing something 18 feet tall is rather profound.

Thank you Angi…I think the idea that these “trees” might be angels and it is possible. Very interesting. There is no way to know for certain but the main context is that Jesus is God and that only He can open the eyes of the blind.

Ezekiel 31:8 – The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chesnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty.

Eze 31:9 – I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him.

Correct me if I am wrong but in a nut shell the Bible speaks on Lucifer being one of the highest and most beautiful angels and his purpose was to make music according to the scriptures. Now when God cast him and 1/3 of the angels from heaven I don’t see of anywhere that it says it took away his most precious purpose, to make music. Now anyone who has eyes to see and ears to hear can see that the devil is working full force in the music industry. Music is at the worst that it has been since I’ve been on the earth.

Music is one of the most powerful tools people use to persuade people to do what they want. Don’t agree? If you were to hear someone say “the best part of waking up”…. I believe most of you would be able to finish that sentence…”is Folgers in your cup”. Many of us learned the alphabet because of a song. Let’s take hip hop, pop, rock and roll, etc., and see how the industry has turned for the worst and promotes everything against God! Lust, murder, idolatry, fornication, pride, sexual immorality, and I have never seen such a strong spirit of Self exaltation like there is now. These are all spirits of Anti-Christ and every spirit of Anti christ is of satan.

I truly believe that music is one of satan’s most powerful and deceptive ways of causing people to sin against God. All you have to do is put it in a song to a catchy beat and you could have a whole nations of children sin against God. I dare everyone reading this to take a few min out of your busy schedules and watch MTV, BET or any music video channel and I believe my point would be proven. I would love to hear everyone’s input of this. what do you think?

Tim, you are actually spot on the mark and I totally agree…music can easily contain subliminal messages, hidden messages and those blatantly evil so you are so right. We must be careful of our music selection. You make an excellent point with great insight Tim. Well said.

I agree with you Tim. Since he is the father of all lies (John 8:44), he uses all the means to drive us away from God. Not only through music, but also through movies, advertisements, fashion, trends, news, literature, etc. Aside from walking in the light of God, I personally believe that our eyes must also be wide open to see what he does to the world, especially to us. We must know all our enemies’ tactics to know how they will be defeated. To be specific, we must know the techniques they use to lead people away form God so that we can lead them back to Him. And we can definitely do this as He will open our eyes to this reality and will empower us to help everyone break free from the curse that haunts mankind. For He does not give the spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7)

May God continue to bless us all and work through us….

Yes you are quite right about music Tim.
The three most popular one`s are The Beatles,Led Zeppelin,and the Rolling stones.
The Beatles mainly did it for musical effect,and they have a picture on the album cover Sergeant Pepper`s Lonely Hearts Club Band of Aleister Crowley the Occultist.
The Rolling Stones did a song quite openly called Sympathy For the Devil.
Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page is said to have inserted the backward message “here`s to my sweet Satan” into his “Stairway To Heaven” song.
Jimmy Page admitted to being a bit of an occultist,and he bought Aleister Crowley`s mansion in Scotland along with some of the evil artifacts.
When the press asked him he said I am finished with all that which was a very long time ago.
The Beatles,and the Stones did it mainly to shock, because it sold records.
The FBI got on to The Beatles mainley John Lennon,and watched,recorded every thing.
Paul McCartney did a song called “Blackbird” this was related to the oppression of the Black people.
Has you know they took LSD this also influenced their music.
Evan the kids can`t escape from the Devil`s tricks. Buzz Light Year,and Harry Potter are full of the devils works.
In a nutshell the Devils work is in everything,if you take notice of it you are in trouble,but their is no harm in researching it,and expose it to the people. He is very clever in what he does,has Padre Pio said.
The Jonas Brothers Satanic to the Core is on YouTube,and it has the Christian messages on the video telling you what`s going on.
I downloaded it and I was shocked?

Actually the bible DOES say that Adam and Eve ate from the “fruit” of the tree of knowledge. Genesis 3:6 KJV

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

You have to read the true word of God, the unchanged writtings of the King James version. God has said He is not the author of confusion, so why would He put out these new “per”-versions that change the words and take verses completly out? These new versions can be traced all the way to mystery babylon, the catholic church. Dont believe me? Do the research, and if your reading the NIV bible, go to Matthew 18:11…go on ill wait…o thats right, its not there. This verse is Jesus’ s words, and it was omitted. Im not condemning the author of this article because there are some good points, I just wanted to take this opportunity to supply that extra knowledge, read the KJV, the true word of God.
John 3:16 KJV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I disagree that the fallen angels are now demons. Every scripture throughout the bible where the fallen angels are mentioned tell us that these angels are chained up and kept captive in the pits of darkness, only to be released at judgment day. The word also tells us that there are many mysteries to which only YHVH has the answer and some of the answers to these mysteries might NEVER be revealed to man. Only time will tell where the demons originated from, IF YHVH our heavenly Father decides to reveal this secret

Jack Wellman January 4, 2015 at 3:39 pm

Thank you Deseree for your comment and you are entitled to your opinion but when Satan, who was once the angel Lucifer, rebelled against God and fell from heaven (Isaiah 14; Ezekiel 28), apparently one third of the angelic host joined his insurrection (Revelation 12:3-4,9). There is no doubt these fallen angels are now known as the demons. We know that hell was prepared for the devil and his angels, according to Matthew 25:41: “Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’” Jesus, by using the possessive word his makes it clear that these angels belong to Satan. Revelation 12:7-9 describes an end-times angelic battle between Michael and “his angels” and the devil and “his angels.” From these and similar verses, it is clear that demons and fallen angels are synonymous.

It is clear that not all of the angels who sinned are “bound,” as Satan is still free (1 Peter 5:8). Why would God imprison the rest of the fallen angels, but allow the leader of the rebellion to remain free? It seems that Jude verse 6 is referring to God confining the fallen angels who rebelled in an additional way, likely the “sons of God” incident in Genesis chapter 6.

The most common alternate explanation for the origin of the demons is that when the Nephilim of Genesis 6 were destroyed in the Flood, their disembodied souls became the demons. While the Bible does not specifically say what happened to the souls of the Nephilim when they were killed, it is unlikely that God would destroy the Nephilim in the Flood only to allow their souls to cause even greater evil as the demons. The most biblically consistent explanation for the origin of the demons is that they are the fallen angels, the angels who rebelled against God with Satan.

In the movie Noah their were 6 rock like creatures who decided to help Noah,but the rest were all evil,and with man the evil was great that`s why God decided to end the world by water. (I think in the movie they were called the Watchers)
When the evil people found out about Noah they all came,and they were all trying to get on the ark,but these Watchers helped Noah.
They decided to help Noah to the last,but when each one was killed a Green light came from heaven,and they went upwards towards heaven,so I presume because they gave their life up to help Noah they went to heaven.
I later did some research and they were called Nephilim,and they were giant`s that some exist today.
It showed you a giant lady next to an ordinary lady,and the difference were huge.
What do you make out of that Jack?

Jack Wellman April 23, 2015 at 12:20 pm

The movie Noah was so full of doctrinal error my friend and it was not very biblical at all. Who were the Nephilim giants; check this article at: “Were There Giants in the Bible?” at http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/were-there-giants-in-the-bible-who-were-the-nephilim/ and http://www.patheos.com/blogs/christiancrier/2014/05/08/were-there-giants-in-the-old-testament-what-does-the-bible-teach/ each of which might give you a better answer than I can in one comment.

I agree entirely with you Jack the movie was terrible.
I think the director was afraid to put the voice of God in like Charlton Heston in Moses,and he also put things in that made no sense to me.
You are right about the giants,but again if the giants are there it`s no use to me.
It will not book me a place in heaven,and to be quite honest I can`t get away with the old testament.
One priest told me to concentrate on the new testament which makes more sense to me.
Thanks again Jack for pointing me in the right direction again.

Since Satan is detached from the source of beauty as well as light, he’s such an ugly being. Nevertheless, he is a real being with an intellect, emotion, and will. He’s the perfecter of evil, there’s nothing good that can come out of him as a result of the evil nature he currently has. Lastly, he’s the greatest enemy of humanity.

I do have a question. Why did Jeaus allow the demons possessing the man leave and go into the pigs? Why did the pigs kill themselves and why did the people tell Jesus to leave when they saw the pigs go into the ocean?

Reply

Jack Wellman March 4, 2015 at 5:06 pm

Great questions Monique. The demons must find a physical life form t want to stay in or else they’re just wandering with no place to be. The pigs killed themselves perhaps because they didn’t know how to handle the emotional evil thoughts but the people wanted Jesus to leave because they knew He represented God and brought the message of repentance and faith (Mark 1:15) and people today tell me and others who bring the gospel to go away too because they are convicted by their sinful lifestyle and want nothing to do with God.

I believe that is topic is somehow sensitive, especially to beginning Christians. I admit that I was totally frightened at first, knowing how their true forms look like. Their true forms are of no compare to the furious devils/demons/monsters portayed in various movies. I admire Ezekiel’s strength for bein able to right the truth about them. That is why I am very blessed and thankful that the Lord Jesus has already overcome death. And it is also nice to know their true forms, identities, character, and origin. So that we will have a better idea on how to use the victory He haas given us. Truly our Lord’s power is the strongest amongst all the forces. Praise be to Him always….

Jack, thank you for responding & I see my comments were not added to your site. My point was that it needed to be made clear that Jesus is more powerful than Satan, considering many might misinterpret what you’ve written as saying Satan is/was the most powerful thing God ever created. The emphasis about Lucifer was that he was beautiful & wise, considered to be perfect until unrighteousness was found in him. There is no verbatim “Satan was the most powerful thing God ever created” written anywhere in the Bible.

I figured you would come back at me with the point that Jesus was not created but again, please consider those who don’t know the Bible & think of how confusing that might come across. What may be obvious to you might not be so obvious to another. That point just needed to be made, since it WASN’T, thank you.

Sorry Kary…I’m not sure why your comment wasn’t there because I did respond to your comment by saying Jesus was not created and I see your comment now. When the Bible discusses Lucifer or Satan he is discussed like no other being but since Jesus is God, and not created, the Devil is no match for God. Thanks for your comment. I’m still not sure why it wasn’t there. (tech problem?).

One more thing, Jack. The comments I said to Deseree & Monique was something to further their understanding of the Bible. For you to not let them see or know the message that was intended for them, because you didn’t like something I said? That was TRUE? You’ll answer to God for that because I am a vessel as much as you are, Sir. We are to be ONE & UNITED in the body of Christ, not divided. I said nothing but the truth & that was in respect to The Lord & to them, the truth as well, according to The Word of God.

I have watched this film which is a true story about a woman in America.
The movie is called the Entity.
She is divorced,and she has a man fiend who want`s to marry her,she agreed to this,but said wait till I get sorted out.
This is exactly what happened one night she was going to bed has usual when all of a sudden a force came,and you saw the indentations on her skin off this Entity around her breasts,and legs.
Then it faded away eventually she saw a psychiatrist but he did not believe her he thought it was all in her head.
These paranormal people were interested and set up equipment up in her house.
Then the Entity came and did the same thing,but these people saw it,or should I say her skin was full of pressure marks.
To cut a long story short her man fried came one night,and the same thing happened,and her man friend saw it happening and he tried to stop it,but it hurled him across the room like a peace of paper.
He was that terrified he left,and you never saw him again after seeing that.
She moved some where else in America but it is still happening to her,but less frequent now.
So is this a demon having sex with her?

Reply

Jack Wellman April 24, 2015 at 2:45 pm

I have not watched this movie…but demons, which are angels, although fallen once, cannot have sex…Jesus said in the resurrection, we’ll be like angels in the sense of not being given in marriage or marrying in heaven. Jesus said: Mark 12:25: “For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.” Angels are “sexless spirit beings,” according to the Bible, but when they manifest themselves to be seen by the human eye, they appear as “men” because if they appeared as angels, they’d likely make everyone drop to the ground in fear.

I watched a documentary ages ago about Sodem and Gomorrah beside the coast of the Red Sea their are about 12 cities and Sodem and Gommorrah are in the middle not far from each other.
It was the archeologists who pointed them out.
When you had a good look you could see that they were buildings.
All around it was barren not evan a weed was growing and the guy said has he picked up a stone I think it was Pumice and Sulphur he broke it open,and somehow he made it come alight.
This is what God must have sent down but it was encrusted,and not harmful until he did what he had done to make it become a fire.
You think their would be modern buildings,and tourists,but their was no sign of them at all just the road running along the side of the Red Sea.
You will definitely know all this when Lot and the two angels came and a crowd gathered wanting to have sex with the two angels,but Lot offered his daughter to them,and you will know the rest.
Can you let me know what this was all about Jack?

Reply

Jack Wellman April 28, 2015 at 5:58 pm

No apology ever necessary my brother. Do you mean why did Lot offer his daughter to the crowd in place of having the two men (angels) not have to go out into the streets? I always wondered about that too. Perhaps Lot knew they were representatives of God and didn’t want anything evil to happen to them since the crowd wanted these two men, who were in fact angels? What that your question brother? Or was it about the pumice and sulfur rocks? Thank you Anthony.

Reply

Anthony Cotton April 30, 2015 at 2:07 pm

I just entered the rocks has God`s evidence that he destroyed the cities by Brimstone,and fire.
It was mainly about Lot and the two angels.
So angels don`t have need for any sex of any kind,and they are angels not human beings.
So can angels protect themselves from this crowd without Lot`s help.
Evan Sodomy is in the dictionary it says- anal intercourse.sodomite person who practises sodomy.
It is evan against the law to do this.
When I used to go out for a drink ages ago me and my brother told this guy who use to sit side us,and he couldn`t believe it,so he said I can`t evan do it against my wife,and I said no! but I can go to the police station,and report you but nothing will happen.
God can see all things,and know what we are going to say before we know and do.
So can satan do this it`s very frighting if he can I just thought of that the other day.
So satan is a cherub,and is he a demon has well.
I watched this film about Pardre Pio who had the stigmata,and he said I am very frightened of the devil.

I remember Jesus saying that when we go to heaven we won’t be giving in marriage or getting married but be like the angels, which sounds like they cannot have sex. Yes, angels can protect themselves from any human for they are powerful spirit beings. We have no need to fear Satan my brother….Jesus defeated him and also the Bible says (in 1st or 2nd John?) that “greater is He (the Holy Spirit) that is within you than he (Satan) that is in the world.”

Atheist one who denies the existence of a God or Goddesses.

Anthony Cotton May 3, 2015 at 5:44 pm

I thought is was right what God had done destroying the two cities/
In todays world you can`t discriminate against homosexuals or lesbians because they have a right to do this by law now.
If I was to have a placard going round the city saying ban homosexuals or lesbians I would get arrested by the police for discriminating against them.
I am divorced,and it has said that the injured party can marry again,but I have to do some thing first.
I have never really been serious about looking for another woman since I was divorced.

kris May 4, 2015 at 2:59 pm

Anthony,

Though we live in the times which seem to be those just prior to the Rapture and increasingly so , our hope is in the Lord and His return to take to Himself the Church as His Bride.

The evidences we are seeing and enduring in the over reaching ‘flood’ of unrighteousness and inquiry [ lawlessness] as people are being led by flesh and deceived by their emotions is difficult but God’s hand is not shortened.

I have known people who have come out of a lifetime of sexual sin , including homosexuality . The gospel touched their hearts and as the Word is heard and taken to heart it is the incorruptible seed which is able to save one’s soul when received with meekness and believed.

The effort to pervert the scriptures and to shut the mouths of believers who are commanded to study to show themselves approved unto GOD …workmen that need not to be ashamed RIGHTLY DIVIDING the Word of truth …is coming from all aspects of carnal minded men who oppose the truth .

We are still commanded to speak the Word of GOD in season and out of season for the sake of the honor and glory of God whom all who love Him are to do.

As Peter asserted …we are to obey GOD rather than men and to be wise as serpents and harmless as dove. We have been given the WORD as ARMOR to be equipped by daily consumption of it and digesting it as we do also physical food…giving time and thought to the Word in all areas of our lives.

To desire anything of God in terms of ‘signs’ , ‘wonders’ and experiences is to become prey to the various ‘isms’ that are NOT of GOD of the Bible . The attack and effort of evil men is to destroy the confidence of those who know not the Word in the Bible itself and thus render them vulnerable to deceitful doctrines and traditions of men …sciences falsely so called.

If we love others we must love GOD enough to study what HE has commanded us to take to heart in all aspects and in the full context of scripture.

Otherwise all the ‘love’ for others will be of the flesh…emotional and without power to transform as only the Word of GOD in our minds obeyed is promised to do.

We are to cast down imaginations and every high thing that holds itself up against the knowledge of GOD and to take captive EVERY THOUGHT to the obedience of Christ….this is HOW the renewed mind works.

The Holy Spirit works in our minds to bring understanding and counsel as we have that Word hidden in our hearts that we might not sin against it.

This is our part …God’s Work is that we might believe …through His God Breathed Word …sought out and perservered in effort to learn and obey all that He has set forth for our jurisdiction as believers and members in particular in the Body which is HIS …

Walking by faith comes from having the Word which is the vehicle of faith which is Christs.

His faith in us through the knowledge of His Word equips us to know what is truth and what is error amidst this dark world and even in dealing with our minds …as the carnal mind is enmity against GOD .

We are not to be ignorant of God’s Word which equips us with the wisdom of GOD in all areas of life and godliness.

The World and those OF the world are not OF Christ …see John 17 for Jesus remarks about this distinction.

Pray for those without but be advised to keep the jurisdictions and distinctions of those areas of priority as set by God to avoid confusion and putting effort in areas which are God’s when our own responsiblities toward Him are set forth for our learning and protection as well as carrying out our own walk IN Him in whom and by whom we are to live unto HIS glory and for the good of His will brought forth IN those who do so.

1 John 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.

10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

1Jo 5:19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
1Jo 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1Jo 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

I appreciate your humility brother.

Thanks brother for your encouragement.

Anthony Cotton April 25, 2015 at 2:22 pm

I do read the Old Parts of the New Testament,because ages ago I was trying to find out where the other woman was to stop Incest. It was the priest because he couldn`t be bothered to explain any thing in the Old Testament,or evan the New one for that matter it was all about the Pope,and his doctrine
After ages looking for the answer it came up in Liviticus(Sorry Spelling) God hadn`t invented it yet,but then God saw that something was going wrong,and He said to them you can`t marry your sister or brother any more,and other relation`s who were part of the intermediate family.
It was the only about a month ago that I was looking for evidence that God left behind and He did.
At the bottom of the Red sea archaeologists found remains of Egyptian chariots with Egyptian writing on them besides bits of weapons.
They were looking for where they crossed the Red sea.
It`s about 4 years I have been on this site thanks to the Holy Spirit who dropped me off here.

It is so awesome that every day it seems that archeologists and paleontologist are finding more and more evidence that the Bible is true…although we didn’t need that confirmation.

Amen Anthony. Revelation 21:9 is clear about what the fate of those who refuse to repent of homosexual sins and so too does Paul write about this in Gal 5 and Eph 5 I think it is. They are suppressing the knowledge of God like Rom 1:24-32 says.
