Satan and Demonic Influence

Baptism and the receiving of God’s Holy Spirit does not exclude us from Satan’s influence. Indeed it may intensify it because Satan then pays a great deal more attention to us. The modern church avoids any teaching of Satan or demons. Many today don’t even believe Satan exists.

The article on this site “The Katabolé – Satan’s war with God” describes how Satan became who he is, and how this Earth Age came into existence when Satan and the fallen angels were cast to earth. I would encourage you to read about the “Katabole” to get some background on Satan.


After the Katabole, Satan was cast to the Earth. In the world today Satan still prowls around seeking who he can devour. He has actually accelerated his destruction in these last days.

Jesus calls him “the prince of this world.” (John 12:31, 14:30, and 16:11) Peter says he is active in this world. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)


Being “the prince of this world” Satan offered Jesus the Kingdoms of the Earth as temptation:

Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

 

The battle with Satan is spiritual as described by Paul:

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Christ’s victory is accomplished and the Devil’s defeat is ensured.

 

 

Where did the demons come from that serve Satan?

The demons who inhabit man are terrified of being banished by Yeshua into the Abyss and fear any Christian filled with the Holy Spirit who may rebuke them and cast them out. The Abyss (Pit, abuso ) is the same place where the fallen angels were chained because of their sin with women.

 

Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

 

In Genesis 6 we learn about the fallen angels who took wives from the daughters of men:

 

Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Genesis 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

The hybrid offspring nephilim spirits, which were not part of God’s creation, had nowhere to go when their physical existence ceased. Enoch tells us what became of the departed spirits of these hybrids:

ENOCH 15:8 And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon 9 the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; 10 they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. [As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.] And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless 12 hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.

The departed spirits of the offspring of the nephilim became what we know as “demons.”

Fallen angels are much more powerful than demons. We’re told by Jesus to cast out demons. Fallen angels have their own angel bodies, therefore they have no need to inhabit flesh bodies. However demons seek flesh bodies desperately; and, if need be, they will settle for the bodies of animals.

Mark 5:12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

 

 

The Bible list the following types of demons causing sickness, lust, seduction and deception:

Seducing Spirits 1 Timothy 4:1 in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils
Spirit of Devination Acts 16:16 a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying
Spirit of Sickness Luke 13:11 a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself
Foul\Unclean Spirits Matthew 10:1

Mark 9:25

he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him

Demons seek flesh bodies to interface with and control. The demon can inhabit and manipulate the body experiencing the pleasures of the flesh. Science has discovered the interface in the past 20 years and doctors are now also able to manipulate the flesh body through the interface.

 

The Interface

The silver cord along with the brain is the interface to the flesh body. Our spirit is the puppet master most of the time. We hear about the silver cord in the book of Ecclesiastes:

Ecclesiastes 12:6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. 7Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Through electromagnetic pulses and vibrations passed through the silver cord, our spirit receives data from the flesh body. People who have died on the operating table and have been revived and have describe seeing the silver cord as they were floating out of their body.

 

During the dying process, as the soul leaves the flesh body and moves farther away, the silver cord becomes thinner as it is stretched to its limit and becomes severed.

 

Through this interface a team of neuroscientists have found that they can manipulate people’s moral judgments by altering the magnetic field of a specific brain region. Seducing spirits are able to manipulate you in a similar way to temporarily make you feel it is OK to sin.

 

Morals and magnetic fields


We know in these last days the manipulation of emotions and thoughts have been the focus of doctors and is common in the treatment of depression. Scientists have altered brain chemistry with hormones , magnetic fields, and drugs to treat mental disorders.


When people interact with each other, our own bodies produce the hormones and chemicals that alter our perception of moral behavior. Oxytocin and Vasopressin cause bonds to form between people like a love drug. Testosterone and estrogen trigger lust. Endorphines triggers a sense of being southed, peaceful and secure.


Satan along with evil spirits can manipulate this balance of chemicals and hormones to push you toward lust, sinful behavior and also sickness.

 

The Church under Satan’s Influence

Satan tries to divide and conquer within the Church through denominations and sects of Christian groups. False teachers from different branches of Christendom have distorted the truth by teaching that “evil is good, and good is evil”. Most modern Churches avoid the subject of Hell and Satan and feel they need to promote warm fuzzy images of life.

 

1 John 5:19 tells us the whole world is under the control of the evil one. Jesus called him the prince of this world (John 12:31) and Paul said he’s the god of this age (2 Cor. 4:4).

 

Premillennialism was the predominant view in the first 300 years of church history and in the United States today, is still held by the Baptist, Pentecostal, Assemblies of God and Church of God denominations.

 

Amillennialists believe Satan is presently bound and Christians are now enjoying the benefits of the 1000 year millennium and the reign with Christ on Earth.

 

When Jesus did not return as many early church leaders expected, they changed religion to fit their views. Origen (185-254 AD) popularized the allegorical approach to interpreting Scripture. Augustine (354-430 AD) interpreted Mark 3:27 to be a present binding of Satan. Augustine was the first to identify the Catholic Church in its visible form with the Kingdom of God on Earth. Thousands were killed during the reformations to conform people to this belief.

 

During the dark ages forgiveness could be bought by the sale of indulgences. The church had the authority to absolve sin and remit one from purgatory for a price.

 

Augustine’s amillennialism soon became the prevailing doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church and was later adopted by most of the Protestant Reformers including Martin Luther and John Calvin. This interpretation of scripture provided power and wealth to the church as they appointed themselves as the direct representatives of Christ on Earth.

 

In his 1522 preface to the book of Revelation, Martin Luther wrote:

About this Book of Revelation of John, I leave everyone free to hold his own opinion. I miss more than one thing in this book and it makes me consider it to be neither apostolic nor prophetic . . .”

Luther was also frustrated by the works-emphasis of the book of James, calling it “the Epistle of Straw, and questioning its canonicity.

 

Out of 2500 prophecies in the Bible, around 2000 have been fulfilled exactly to the letter. If God is so precise and exact in the details of fulfilled prophecy, it seems to shine dimly on the amillennialists allegorical approach to interpreting Scripture.

Amillennialism depended on future Bible prophecy being interpreted as symbolic. Since it has already been longer than 1000 years since the Crucifixion and Israel became a nation in 1948 fulfilling the start of the last days prophecies, the concepts of amillennialism has been proven false today.

Israel restored in one day – May 14th 1948 AD Isaiah 66:8

750 BC

Like the Garden of Eden (3 harvest a year now) Ezekiel 36:33~35
Hebrew Language restored (Eliezar Ben Yehuda 1881 AD) Zephaniah 3:9
Walls rebuilt by strangers (Suleiman 1539 AD) Isaiah 60:10
Eastern Gate Sealed (Suleiman 1541 AD) Ezekiel 44:1~2
Destroyed by the Romans – Titus 70 AD Daniel 9:27
Israel regains land -Never Plucked up 1948 AD Amos 9:14

 

We know that according to prophecy there will be a great apostasy in the last days. Paul tell us that before the Antichrist is revealed to the world a falling away of faith would happen:

2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

This is why it is important to know your enemy and adversary. Satan believes he has most of the souls and will win the battle in the end.
