Researching Demonology

I have spent over 40 years in the research, study, and facilitating learning experiences of what the Bible teaches regarding various metaphysical, and paranormal  phenomena

It is my opinion, as well as others, that  Revelation 12:9 is the clearest scripture on the identity of demons,

“The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.”

In brief what I have learned and come to believe is:
  • Satan’s fall from heaven is symbolically described in Isaiah 14:12-15 and Ezekiel 28:12-15. Revelation 12:4 seems to indicate that Satan took one-third of the angels with him when he sinned.Jude 6 mentions angels who sinned. The Bible indicates that the demons are fallen angels who, along with Satan, rebelled against God.
  • Satan and his demons now look to destroy and deceive all those who follow and worship God (1 Peter 5:8; 2 Corinthians 11:14-15).
  • The demons are described as evil spirits (Matthew 10:1), unclean spirits (Mark 1:27), and angels of Satan (Revelation 12:9).
  • Satan and his demons deceive the world (2 Corinthians 4:4), attack Christians (2 Corinthians 12:7; 1 Peter 5:8), and combat the holy angels (Revelation 12:4-9).
  • Demons are spiritual beings, but they can appear in physical forms (2 Corinthians 11:14-15). The demons/fallen angels are enemies of God, but they are defeated enemies. Greater is He who is in us, than those who are in the world (1 John 4:4).
I had a Seminary Professor Dr. David Fletcher who taught me World Religions, Cults and the Occult who directed us in his classes that for every hour of study and research in these areas, spend seven times that amount in the study of those scriptures that worshiped and praised and glorified  God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

      With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart,
    that I might not sin against you.Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes!
Psalm 119:10-12

Hey can you tell me anything about vampires?

Can you pm me?

Would like to say taking all info from the Bible or similar text for research isn't really the best way to decipher the info needed to truly study and learn. I feel sorry for doing this, but the Bible is the biggest lie I have ever seen. Mainly for how it changes constantly to suit the writers needs at the time. The earliest form of the Bible was designed to bring hope for the suppressed later being written to scare anyone into submission, while later changed to make god look like a forgiving god. It really is propaganda for the people it benefited, the Priests. I give the Bible props for being such a powerful tool of control, but its far from being the best source for the afterlife/ world beyond. For example Demon is a one sided term and is now currently used to describe any and all powerful afterlife creatures excluding "Angels" while the term was taken from Daimon which simply meaning Not purely good or evil its also used to describe Demigods in some cases who have past on. Daimon is simply a Spirit which is not as powerful as a god and not strictly good or Evil. while religion twisted the meaning into Demon. A listed demon in fact is a god from Egyptian religion Amon (Amun, Amun-Ra, or Amon-Ra). The Bible "Demonized" everything that it didn't like its pure propaganda for those who want to control by the threat of a none ideal afterlife.
I am sorry you spent 40 years on this, I have spent over half my life reading, questioning, and seeking the cold hard truth. Was funny when I simply asked why is the bible so inconsistent to a Preacher he literally started throwing holy water on me and Stating "Be gone demon" which was no effect of course for I am no Demon. If the people who wrote and fallow the Bible cant answer a simple question just because it questions the Bible then why should I even take it seriously. The afterlife is indeed real but the current "holy" texts besides a handful are extremely skewed, so until then there is no proof of what the bible says should be taken as truth.

You truly are wise! if I may, I would like to ask what knowledge you have on Enochian Entities. My references say these entities are Angels while others are saying they are demons. I don't want to delve into a subject that I don't understand fully though it is very interesting to me. if you could please assist me with acquiring a deeper understanding of these beings I would be very appreciative. Thank you.

thank you so much for your wisdom! that will really jump start my studies and help me get going in the right direction

What are your thoughts on Nephilim and where do they fit in?
