Where Do Demons Come From?

Revelations 12:9, “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

The Holy Bible does not specifically state where demons originated from. However, the scriptures do record two possible instances for their origin. The first comes in Revelations 12:9. The fallen angels hypothesis suggest, those Angels that rebelled with Satan become demons or seducing spirits like Lucifer himself. Brought down to deceive the world before Adam (the Pre-Adamite Race). This is very possible due to the fact the Serpent in the Garden of Eden was coerced by Satan into tempting Adam and Eve into sin, before the world was re-created by YAH in Gen 1:3.

The next possible explanation is the Nephilim theory. Those who were the offspring of man and angelic procreation in Genesis 6:4, “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.” Though the majority of these beings were destroyed during Noah’s flood. The disembodied spirits, which are not of man or angel were never sent to Sheol. As they are not part of YAH’s original creation and not redeemable. Therefore they roam about, until the final judgement.

Upon studying the scriptures I believe that demons originated from both sources, Fallen Angels and the Nephilim. Both are demonic forces working with Satan to bring about the destruction of mankind. Though their origins may seem a little convoluted, it is important to know that they are here, affecting our world. Know that in Christ you have the power over them!

James 4:7-8, “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded,” Shalom…
