The Bible tells us that angels are supernatural beings that God created for his services and for our good, such as guardian angels and messengers. But the Bible also says that some angels rebelled against God and were expelled from heaven along with Lucifer, who is also called Satan or the devil. Matthew 25:41 says that the everlasting fire of hell was created for the devil and his angels.
These angels of Satan are also referred to as demons and as evil spirits. They are responsible for much suffering in the world and the Bible gives examples of them causing dumbness, blindness, epilepsy, and what appeared to be insanity. Paul’s first letter to Timothy also warns the world that these spirits would deceive people so that they would not believe so that they would not believe in Jesus Christ. 1 Timothy 4:1 says that, “in the latter time some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.” 1 John 4:1 also says that we should test these spirits that promote false doctrines and not be deceived.
Jesus said that some people would even be able to perform miracles, but that their power would come from Satan and his angels and not from God.
We should all be cautious of any form of spirit worship, witchcraft, and demonic toys such as Ouija boards, devil worship, the black arts or the occult. The best protection is to receive Jesus Christ and be filled with the Holy Spirit so that Satan’s spirits will not be able to control us.
