A Study On Demons
Demons are actually angels that were in heaven, they are the one third that fell in the rebellion and were cast down to earth in Revelation 12:3-4 †{Then another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems. And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth.} And in Revelation 12:7 says {Then, there was a war in heaven; Michael and the angels under his command fought the Dragon and his hosts of fallen angels. And the Dragon lost the battle and was forced from heaven. This great Dragon--the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world--was thrown down onto the earth with all his army.} This ancient army of Satanís fallen angels have been around sense the Fall of Adam because the first mention of Satan in the Bible is in the Garden of Eden when he tempted Eve. So Satan and his army was in the world even before sin, or man was. Just as Godís angels report to God, so also Satanís satanic angels report to him, the only difference is God does not need to have anyone report to him because he is all seeing and all knowing. Satan is very limited in what he knows, he cannot read our minds, he hears only what we voluntarily tell him and he uses it against us. He will always be around until God does away with him for good at the end of time when he is thrown into the lake of fire in Revelation 20:10 { Then the devil who had betrayed them will again be thrown into the Lake of Fire burning with sulphur where the beast and False Prophet are, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. There is a belief in the secular world, the world of non Christians, who think that spirits of the departed †are loose walking around on earth as spirit beings and that they can talk to them by weggi boards or other gateways into the spirit world. This is unscriptural. The Bible teaches that you go immediately into hell or Heaven. This is found in Luke 16:22-23. {So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torment in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom}. This Scripture is clear that the rich man did not have any time to wonder the earth as a spirit, instead he went immediately into hell. This also throws out the idea of reincarnation. The Spirits these people are talking to is actually demons posing as human souls; there loved one is either in Heaven or hell. I was taught ever sense I can remember that the devil is very ugly and has red skin with horns and has a pointed tail and caries around a pitchfork. This is only a picture that the world has painted of him. He was one of God most beautiful angels at the time. In Ezekiel 28:12-15 †says {Thus says the Lord God: "You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering: the sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created. You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of †the fiery stones. You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. If Satan was beautiful then it is also reasonable to assume that all of his demonic host were also made the same way. Some would ask the question, if demons are in fact fallen angels, arenít they locked away in the donjon described in Jude 1:6 {And I remind you of those angels who were once pure and holy, but turned to a life of sin. Now God has them chained up in prisons of darkness, waiting for †judgment day}. These angels that Jude talks about are a separate group of angels described in Genesis 6:2-4 {the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. And the Lord said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years. There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. 2 Peter 2:4 { †For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment. The original fallen angels that fell at the rebellion are still loose today. Anybody who †doesnít know Jesus as their Lord and savior is not protected by Godís umbrella of protection and are very vulnerable to Satanís attacks. It is only when you are close to God and into this living word that you have power to stand up against the devil. Remember that Satan has been deceiving people sense the garden of Eden. He has had time to practice his deceptions and became very good at it. If you are not with the Lord Jesus, you most likely will be deceived by him. Just as the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 24:24 {For false christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect}. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on my account. Luke 7:23

I like Lee's study he always used lots of scripture, which today with modern preaches they just tell stories-- not biblical.
