Are Fallen Angels Demons?
God, in His infinite power, created multitudes of angels, an impressive, incalculable number. A great number of the angels fell because they rebelled against God. We recall that before admitting the angels to paradise, God subjected them to a trial of obedience and humility, of which we know the nature but not the specifics. The sin of the fallen angels was one of pride and disobedience. Satan, the most beautiful of all the angels, being aware of his extreme intelligence, rebelled at the idea of being subjected to someone. He forgot that he was a creature made by God. Many angels followed him in his folly.
So they began taking as wives all whom they chose. This was the arrival of an unconfirmed number of angels on planet earth. Their arrival marked the beginning of pangs and distress for the antediluvian world of that time and was indeed one of the most remarkable events in the history of mankind. Although the Bible explains their arrival at the beginning of chapter 6 of Genesis nevertheless it remains silent about their departure. One thing is sure, in order for spiritual beings to have physical relationships with earthly women they had to materialise or acquire bodies suitable for reproducing offspring with their wives. The concept of materializing angels is not foreign to the pages of the Bible. For instance, the three angels that visited Abraham ate and drunk with him.
How Some Angels Became Evil Spirits Called Demons
Yes, I want to follow Jesus. I am a follower of Jesus. I still have questions. However, they didn't begin as his followers. They were God's created spiritual beings who were meant to serve Him and act as messengers to His people.
Angels are pure and holy spiritual beings who love God and serve Him by helping people, right? Certainly, the angels that people celebrate in popular culture are faithful angels who do good work in the world. Fallen angels who are also commonly known as demons work for evil purposes that lead to destruction in the world, in contrast to the good purposes of the missions that faithful angels fulfill. You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! Michael and his angels fought against the dragon [Satan] and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The destructive choices that these fallen angels made distorted their character, which led them to become evil.
And yet, some have. How did all of this happen? And yet, we have to affirm that angels have free will. In the beginning, the angels were created to be in Heaven with God, praising Him, and doing His bidding. They were made to glorify Him, as were humans, but humans were made to dwell on the earth — not angels.
