Ask the Pastor 29

Is there such a thing as the Devil and Demons?

The short answer is yes. The longer answer is that the Bible teaches us that Satan (Devil) was created as an angel in heaven and belonged to the hierarchy of the Cherubim and was one who covered over the throne. This means that he was the highest of the angels in heaven when due to his pride, he rebelled and sought after the place of God. It was then that he was cast out of heaven to earth along with his followers of fallen angels or demons. This is all recorded under the heading of the king of Tyre in Ezekiel 28:11-19. He is called Satan or the opposer 52 times; Devil or slanderer 35 times; he was the serpent in the garden Genesis 3:1 and the great dragon in Revelation 12. Satan is spoken of as the prince of the power of the air in Ephesians 2:2 and as believers we are to be armed and ready to fight against him, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” (Ephesians 2:11). Satan is a created being and is not equal to God in authority or power, he can only act by permission (see Job 1 & 2). His existence raises a number of other questions which we will examine in future articles.
