Demons defined – and dealt with!

Demons defined in the bible have the following attributes:
– supernatural, personal, spirit beings
– have will and intelligence
– possess superhuman strength and knowledge
– can appear to tell the future
– God created them as good angels
– fell by joining Satan’s rebellion
– Satan called “prince of demons”
– possibly 1/3 of angles became demons
– possibly a rank structure amongst demons
– execute Satan’s game plan (attack, tempt and accuse God’s people) by:
– cause mental and physical illness
– hinder spiritual progress
– know God’s truth, but twist it for their purposes
– promote false religion
– demons will becomes more active during end times

But DONT WORRY as demons have alerady been dealt with:
– God has already won
– God has provided us with the tools

My notes:
– i am not a big fan of focusing on the whole satan, demons, end times stuff – cause i think some people focus on this stuff too much – and forget that we should be loving each other!
– it is not my gift – though i do recognise that it is a gift for some people (though i suspect not as many people than who actually focus on it)
– i thank God that he has given me the tools and that he has the power to deal with it. so i can get on with loving people.
