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

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.

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.
