Angels and Demons
Colossians 1:16 For byt him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.
Have you ever wondered where angels and demons come from? You picture the stuff that’s in the movies with the spiritual realm at battle, angels on one side and demons on the other…but when did they come into being? Have they always been there?
A biblical truth to hold onto when it comes to anything is that God created all things. All things, to include the spiritual beings that are all around, in heaven and on earth. God’s messengers, the angels, were created by Him to do His will. Likewise, demons were created by God, but they chose to disobey Him and were cast out of heaven. Though evil, they were still created by God. How does that change the way you think about demons?
Just as we were created with purpose, angels were created with specific tasks and attributes as well. They have characteristics different from those of humans, but they are nonetheless created beings of God. They reside in heaven, out of heaven, and anywhere that God sends them. It’s worth taking a deeper look at what angels are and what they are not before forming our view of them.
