Are Demons And Fallen Angels The Same?

Some Christians think that demons are not the same as fallen angels but are different from each other—distinct creatures. They got that idea from the Book of Enoch, an extra-biblical source not inspired by God. I will reveal with the Word of God that demons and fallen angels are indeed the same creatures. Only with a biblical view can you come out with demons being the same as fallen angels. You would need a different source to come out with something different.

14 One day Jesus was driving out a demon that was mute. And when the demon was gone, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowds were amazed, 15 but some of them said, “It is by Beelzebul, the prince of the demons, that He drives out demons.” 16 And others tested Him by demanding a sign from heaven. 17 Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste, and a house divided against a house will fall. 18 If Satan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand? After all, you say that I drive out demons by Beelzebul. 19 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 20 But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. -Luke 11:14-20 BSB

Beelzebul was a name given to Satan, as verse 18 connects Satan with Beelzebul. So, Satan is the prince and leader of the demons. If in Luke 11, Satan is the leader of the demonic spirits and in Revelation 12, see below, Satan, the dragon, is the leader of the [fallen] angels, it shows that demons and fallen angels are the same.

7 Then a war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But the dragon was not strong enough, and no longer was any place found in heaven for him and his angels. 9 And the great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. -Revelation 12:7-9 BSB

We must never ever make extra-biblical sources the source of truth. If you do, you will be deceived.

Beelzebul: The Lord Of The Flies

But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “Only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, does this man drive out demons.”

Matthew 12:24

The reason why the Pharisees said that Jesus was using a demonic prince to cast out a demon was that they had rejected the evidence of God working through Him. The word “prince” implies one with a high position and who exhibits great power.

The word “Beelzebul” means the lord of the flies. It was a name that was attributed to Satan.

Flies are attracted to human waste which human excrement points to something worthless like idols. The word “Idol” in Hebrew is gillul which has the meaning of dungy things. Strong’s# 1544

God considers all idols to be the equivalent of human waste. When you see any religion bowing down to a statue, for the Lord, it is like worshiping dung (worthlessness), making your worship detestable to the Lord.

12 You must have a place outside the camp to go and relieve yourself. 13 And you must have a digging tool in your equipment so that when you relieve yourself you can dig a hole and cover up your excrement. 14 For the LORD your God walks throughout your camp to protect you and deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, lest He see anything unclean among you and turn away from you. -Deuteronomy 23:12-14

Human excrement gives the meaning of a thing that is useless. Just like when a person eats food, the body starts to digest it, keeping only what is useful and discards what is not needed.

According to the verses in Deuteronomy, human excrement is something that God considers unholy, and flies are naturally attracted to it. So, it infers that when you are in sin, as a believer in Christ, you will attract demons, giving them access to your life.

Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. -1 Peter 5:8

Be careful with what you do with your life because Just like the odor of dung calls the flies to it so does your sins to Satan. Repent immediately and get right with the Lord or you are asking for demonic oppression.
