War in Heaven

Fall of Satan

from Google Images

In order for the idea to be true that demons are fallen angels, there had to have been some kind of conflict between the forces of good – God and his angels – and the forces of evil – God’s enemy and his angels. Yet, when those of us who believe or believed at one time that a ‘war in heaven’ did occur look into the word of God (the Bible), we are surprised to find that no account of such a conflict exists. I know I was surprised when I began to search the pages of God’s word to prove the teaching I had been told about Satan and his demons falling from their positions of glory in heaven. Yet, since there is no such clear record of such a thing occurring in the Bible, how did we come to believe a war between God and Satan occurred? Read the rest of this entry »

Origin of Demons

According to Scripture demons are new gods. They are men who were once famous kings or rulers but died. Their memories are worshiped as though they yet lived as spirits. They don’t! Notice that the rulers of Isaiah 26:13 are dead (Isaiah 26:14) and cannot rise to do harm ever again. The idea that former evil men (new gods) arose as demons (Deuteronomy 32:17) to afflict people again is shown to be false by Isaiah. Read the rest of this entry »

Is it True that Enoch Never Died?

When many read Genesis 5:21-24, they often believe that Enoch did not die, yet the plain teaching of Scripture is that all the days of Enoch were 365 years (Genesis 5:23). In all other places where a similar phrase is used it means the one in question lived that many years. If Enoch did not die, this phrase is meaningless and misleading.

Is Jesus our Only Master or our Only Lord?

There is a very interesting passage in the book of Jude concerning the Deity of Jesus, as it pertains to how modern critics view him. Jude 1:4 calls for our attention, and we need to pause to take in the full impact of what Jude is saying. Notice what the Scripture says:

Jude 1:4 NASB For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. (emphasis: mine)

Does the word only describe Master or Lord or both? If it describes Lord, then Jude 1:5 continues to describe our only Lord as Jehovah, who led Israel out of Egypt. In verse-9 Jehovah (Lord) is asked to rebuke Satan, and finally in Jude 1:14, Enoch prophesied of the Lord (Jehovah) coming with his holy myriad to execute judgment upon the ungodly. This last mention of the Lord is a clear reference to Jesus. Read the rest of this entry »
