"'Every kingdom divided against itself goes to ruin, and a divided household falls. Equally if Satan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand?--since as you would have it, I drive out the devils by Beelzebub. If it is by Beelzebub that I cast out devils, by whom do your own people drive them out? If this is your argument, they themselves will ...

The Book of Watchers, in the aprocryphal 1 Enoch*, is the earliest specific, pre-Christian reference to the fallen angels, at least in the Septuagint version. Annette Yoshiko Reed says in an innovative twist on earlier Jewish traditions, Justin Martyr (c. 100-165) proposed that the progeny of the fallen angels, described in Genesis 6.1–4, became demons who ...

As close as I can understand these Scriptures they apply to the fallen Angels: Revelation 12:7 through 9 NKJV And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent ...

Or it could have been mere wishful thinking in a time when death was very prevalent. I do know that there are religions that specifically teach that men can become angels. But the one I'm thinking of ...

But we do not consider him a God. But rather Mormonism believes that we all have the potential be Gods and create worlds and have spirit children. Considering that we believe that Adam ...

Gabriel is a seraphim as when he came to Zachariah announcing his wife Elizabeth would bear John the Baptist: Luke 1:19 - And the angel replied to him, I am Gabriel. I stand in the [very] presence of God, and I have been sent to talk to you and to bring you this good news. The Amplified Bible. (1987). (Lk 1:19). La Habra, CA: The Lockman Foundation. I ...

I’ll try to answer the question from a Catholic perspective and, additionally, provide some supplementary information about what has been mentioned in the comments. The general answer to the question is “no”. First, God is Almighty, both before and after His revelation to us. So you can’t exercise power over Him. We can do wonders in Jesus’ name, but only ...

This article What is a Demon? by Fr. José Antonio Fortea Cucurulla, a Spanish writer, and a Roman Catholic priest and exorcist of the diocese of Alcalá de Henares (Madrid), speaks of what the angelic fight, a fight between spiritual beings, was all about: Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and ...

Angels have several duties: Protection for His children: Psalm 91:11 - 12: For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. To minister to His children: Hebrews 1:14: Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them ...
