Revelation 12:9, we’ll get to this later, says, “That 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.”
So, when Satan fell, he led some of the angels with him.
One-third of the angels went with Lucifer, and those fallen
angels are now what we would call demons.
And you say, “Well, that’s really scary.”
Yeah, but remember, he took one-third.
The other two thirds are still on our side.
So, we’re still on the winning side, aren’t we?
But look at what is happening here.
This bottomless pit is being opened up and out of it come
what is described as locusts.
But these are demonic creatures that are unleashed
upon the planet.
So, Satan is sort of whipping up this frenzy.
And they’ve been doing this for a long time, but now
they’re going into overdrive.
The purpose of demons seems to be twofold.
Number one, they seek to hinder the purposes of God.
And number two, they seek to extend the power of Satan.
Listen, if you’re taking notes, here’s three things you need
to know about demons.
I know you don’t want to talk that much about this, but it’s
good to know these things.
Three things you need to know about demons.
Number one, they’re real and aggressive.
They’re real and aggressive.
They’re not all bound in this bottomless pit.
This will happen later.
Right now, many are roaming freely on sort of a
search-and-destroy mission.
Remember when the angels of the Lord appeared before God
in the Book of Job, and Satan was among them.
And God says to Satan, “What have you been doing?
Where have you come from?”
And Satan responds in Job 2:2, “Well, I’ve just been going back
and forth across the earth watching everything
that’s going on.”
Wow, that’s creepy.
He’s just walking around checking things out, looking for
opportunities, looking for ways to bring misery and destruction.
That is why the Bible describes the devil as a blood-thirsty
lion seeking his prey.
Number two, though powerful, demons and the devil himself
have clear limitations.
Let me say that again.
Though powerful, the devil and his demons
have clear limitations.
Let me tell you something that Satan does not want you to know.
His power is considerable, but it is still limited.
Remember, this is all allowed by God.
We already read in Revelation, “To him was given the key
to the bottomless pit.”
This is temporary, and God has given his permission
for a period of time.
So, all these demons are out and about, according to Revelation
9, like scorpions with a power to sting, but not to kill.
But notice that they can’t attack everyone.
Revelation 9:4 says, “They’re commanded not to harm the grass
of the earth or any green thing of any tree, but only those men
who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.”
Third thing I want to say about demons, and I’m done,
demons flee at the name of Jesus Christ.
They flee at the name of Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us in Philippians 2 at the name of
Jesus Christ, every knee will bow and every tongue will
confess of things in the earth and things under the earth that
Jesus Christ is the Lord to the glory of God the Father.”

  1. My brother who is in his 40s he's older than me I'm in my thirties. Has stole my identity he's committed crimes and now has misdemeanors and drug charges in my name and I'm going to court now because they think I'm the one to come into those crimes and I'm trying to show them that it's identity theft my brother said he just wants to hurt me for no reason he just wants to destroy me because he can cuz you've never gone to jail you never broke the law I want to show you how bad it's been for me in prison. I want you to suffer like I had to suffer and I'm going to make sure you never get out I want to keep breaking the law and keep doing things to you so you never get out and I'm going to keep using your identity every time you solve a case or when a case I'll do another crime. To me that is pure evil that is to me an enemy of God trying to take it away God's children from being able to be free free in the world instead my brother Shawn is on purpose trying to lock me away but I've never broken the law. I I've never been handcuffed or been to jail or prison. I'm trying to figure out how to even get an attorney cuz I can't afford one they haven't told me how to they're not answering the phone at court so I can give them the discovery things the discovery information showing that it's me that I'm the real person and he's the one stealing my identity they haven't even answered the phones to allow me to give them the discovery articles of proving my innocence so now I court cases 8 days from now for my free trial conference and I got to see if they can then give me an attorney there another way of extending my court battle another 30 days out and then it's just never going to end it if you like please pray that my brother is caught and they stop him and they do everything they can't keep him from ever doing it again to my name he has my social security number memorized I pray that this stops immediately! In the name of Jesus Christ! and I ask for everyone all my brothers & sisters in Christ please pray that my half brother Shawn is stopped. He's caught using my name over and over again I'm fighting this case in court and he's already using my name again while I'm fighting the last case. It seems like he's going to continue to stop but it is going to Stop In The name of Jesus because Jesus is going to put an end to it I haven't been able to work because of this right now with my pending charges that he did in my name. I haven't been able to make an income I haven't been able to get my driver's license because my ID has been stolen so I can't do anything right now my life is me sitting at home on the couch terrified I'm not going to have any way to take care of my family I want to be able to supply things for my family and my mom I want to be how God has called us to be I want to take care of my family I want to be out there doing the best I can to take care of everything they need. And here I am trapped unable to live and suffering this English with the enemy just trying to take me out but I am not going to give up and I am not going to give in I'm going to fight and I'm going to claw my way through this battle I will sue the city if I have to for pain and suffering I can't tell you the devil has been trying to take me to come out for so long and I try to do it GoFundMe page and never went through and couldn't get a disposed everything that was going on to go wrong and I just need your prayers and support emotionally mentally ally and spiritually. I have never been more down but I know that my faith is strong. I was diagnosed with mild autism so I don't see what other people see but they see them apparently they always say how do you have such strong faith or a mind of a child. I don't know I didn't know I was doing that because Jesus is my best friend and we talk about everything and I ain't talking about my favorite movies I talk about my favorite books I talk about the word of God with him and what I'm learning and talk about what colors are my favorite to talk to him about everything every single day there's not one thing I don't share with them people might think it's weird. But it's not because I can't tell you if it wasn't for Jesus I would be very lonely best friend and I can't tell you how awesome it is to have Jesus with me everyday and I know that he's with me everyday he'll be with me in court and I know that I'm not alone and I know that my mom's going to be there but most importantly in Jesus is going to be there and I know the truthy for a fact. I apologize for a lot of the titles it's hard to see them sometimes I don't seem the many typos until sadly after my comments or prayer requests are already posted LOLL !!!!!

  2. As we return to our biblical roots of the Book of Acts. Read the Bible daily as spiritual food that will make you a healthier believer. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. ๐Ÿœโ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ“–โค๐ŸŽบโ›ˆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ

  3. Soooo. This is what you turned the word given ento? You have run with the ba'al, I mean (b,all). An u created a multi- million church for urself. Enjoy your money. I regret the day I saw your face. Repent or u will never see HIS face. An u have the gall to preach on the only unforgivable sin. Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Enjoy it, HIM u will NOT.

  4. He's two things.

    1. An actor

    2. A salesman.

    Listening to these guys is no different than going to the movies or a car dealership. It's all the same principles. I should know, I've been all the above, and it takes one to know one.

  5. Also, are the angles who fell and are now the fallen ones/angels, are they not different from demons? I thought the demons are the ones who were born from the fallen angels mixing with human women and they are now trapped in this world who desire to be in a body. They're part angelic/demonic, part human.

  6. Ephesians 6:12 "For 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."

    They're all in hellywood, (hollywood) media, politics, judges, lawyers, police, fbi, Cia, schools, businesses like fast foods, multi billion corporations, doctors, hospitals, even in your charities, etc.

    However, that's not to say every single person is involved but those who are in higher ranking in the free masonry, which the 33rd degree is the highest ranking where ALL is revealed.

    The antichrist/lawlessness man of sin/the beast is already here. No, I'm not just speaking on my own thoughts in what I believe, but in what I've sought the Lord in much prayer and fasting asking Him to reveal to me who it is and He told/showed me that obama is absolutely the antichrist. He confirmed it with me right after, and many multiple times still confirms it with me over these yrs. Praise be to God! I'm so thankful and grateful that He revealed this to me.
    I pray for those who don't yet know or may not believe what I'm saying to be TRUTH, that they earnestly seek God for the truth.

  7. The attack has always been against children, but the intensity is increasing and creating children with evil in their hearts. The only way to fight demons is with the sword of the spirit which is the word of God. The word of God does not return devoid to him.

    Ephesians 6
    Isiah 55:11

  8. Our society has let down our women and in a chain reaction they've let own our children. Stand up to the mockers with strength through christ and your family will stay strong. God bless.

  9. They are here now I had one stalking me and i guess it vibration differently than us and it could dissappear and go through walls, not joking here im serious i was terrified, my whole outlook on life has changed, or its some unholy creatures from a laboratory, but I kind of doubt that

  10. They've been here all along, our leaders, press, and everyone, everything, is engulfed in fighting and anger, so deep in hatred they can't even stand to see someone have a wife, kids. They are so bad they can't even stand to see them have nothing. That's how bad it's been.
