Looking Into The Sinister Structure Of Satan And His Fallen Angels Domain

As followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, we face daily demonic entities who are always planning their next attack to stop us from accomplishing God’s will. Why? Because they hate God and are pure evil. But that’s not the only reason. They attack believers so that the gospel doesn’t reach others and get saved. They want people to go to hell and burn for all eternity. Demons will go above and beyond to keep your neighbors, friends, and family from hearing the message that God has given you through the Scriptures. I’m going to go into more details on the demonic forces of evil that we face every day to show you how serious our battles are and the need for us to get closer to the Lord.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Ephesians 6:12 BSB

The bold and underlined words above will bring to light the structure of the fallen angels and their goal for humanity.

Ephesians 6:12 (For our struggle is not against flesh and blood) starts by clarifying that we are not in battle with people, but with what’s behind the people who come to either deceive you or harm you. Evil people are under demonic influence to destroy your faith in Christ, and if they can, physically. The good news is that we are under God’s protection (Job 1:10).

Our fight is against Satan and his fallen angels.

Rulers: In Greek (746), this word reveals that the demons have a hierarchical structure. You have in their ranks chief—head over the rest to command and give strategy to fight against God’s people, and kingly—who is in charge over a massive demonic army and reveals spiritual power. 

Authorities: This word in Greek (1849) show that they have spiritual power to influence people (2 Timothy 2:26) to go against God—rant and blaspheme His name (Revelation 13:5-6). They also push people to live in sin—having a strong pull to make people give in to the flesh. These fallen angels have the power to take control of your life (Luke 22:3-4). It won’t be to make it better but to make your life worse. Believers in Jesus Christ can permit the enemy to cause havoc in our lives by opening up a door (Ephesians 4:26-27).

Powers: The Greek word (2888) means that these demonic beings are the rulers of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4), who have detached themselves from God—the rebellion of Satan that took place in heaven before men came into existence. They are the ones who infiltrate the world governments (Daniel 10:13, 20) to change their policies that will work against God’s plan. The ultimate goal is to place in authority the Antichrist to rule the world for Satan (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

Darkness: The Greek word (4655) reveals that they want to plunge the world into sin—moral decay. When a person is in the flesh—feeding its desires, they are in darkness—walking with a blindfold in the direction of a spiritual cliff.

Spiritual Forces: This word in Greek (4152) indicates that we are in a spiritual battle as the enemy we face are spiritual beings. They operate in the spiritual realm, which manifests in the physical world. So, before a satanic attack happens in the physical world, it first occurs in the spiritual. When a false religious group (i.e., Mormons or Jehovah’s Witnesses) come knocking at your door, the plan of deception was already hatched in the spiritual world to send them to you for entrapment—a spiritual net. 

Evil: This word (Gr. 4188) shows you the enemy’s nature and desires for the human race. It gives you the words wickedness, iniquities, with pain. All this means that the demons, through a sinful lifestyle, will bring you extreme mental and physical pain. The purpose for this is to get you so tired of life that you would commit suicide—sending you straight to hell for the ultimate torment (Matthew 27:1-5).

Heavenly Realms: This Greek word (2032) means that all angelic activities happen in the spiritual world. It is where God instructs His angels to do His will and where the demons and God’s angels fight. Through the spiritual realm, they influence certain situations to impact people’s lives.

You Become What You Worship And Believe In

15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, made by the hands of men. 16 They have mouths, but cannot speak; they have eyes, but cannot see; 17 they have ears, but cannot hear; nor is there breath in their mouths. 18 Those who make them become like them, as do all who trust in them.

Psalm 135:15-18 BSB

The concept of an idol and why Satan uses it is because of what it does. An idol takes the place of God and rules the person’s life by directing him or her in a specific direction. It will take the individual into a path of deep darkness—away from the light—reaching a point that one can no longer comprehend what is true anymore.

In Scripture, an idol is called “a lie.” What a lie does, it turns everything upside down—like bad is good, good is bad, wrong is right, right is wrong, sin is righteous, righteous is sin, down is up, up is down, light is dark, dark is light, etc. Satan’s language is to speak in lies.

Psalm 135:18 says that you are what you believe and worship. If you trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and worship Him, who is life, it makes you alive and gives you light to see the truth. But, if you worship idols, which are dead and lifeless, you become like them—spiritually dead—walking in pure darkness. 

How about you, what do you believe? Do you assume that idols can hear your prayers and can give you what you have asked? If you do, you will base your life on a lie, and everything you do will be for the lie. Faith in Idols, in a false Jesus, a false gospel, and a false spirit—all of them will take you to hell. We have to believe in the right Jesus, as the Scriptures declare Him to be so, that we can know the truth— setting us free from the lie that leads to death.

(Part 3) We Are Living In Times As Stated In Romans 1

A continuation of A verse by verse look, through Romans 1:18-32, to show the time we are living in today. The Great Tribulation is very near, which makes the rapture even closer.

Continuing with Romans 1:24

24 Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to impurity for the dishonoring of their bodies with one another.

Romans 1:24 BSB

There is a time of no return. The moment that a person has indefinitely rejected the Lord Jesus Christ in favor of one’s sin, God will give them over to it, and they will end up dying in that state without the possibility of getting saved. In this case, the sin that permeates society is homosexuality (see verses 26-27). We are living in this time.

25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is forever worthy of praise! Amen.

Romans 1:25 BSB

The decay of society’s morality begins when the people abandon God’s Word for a lie like another spirituality or the culture. Once the world heads in that direction, full-blown idolatry will surface in various shapes like statues, materialism, self, money, and status. The lie that we are seeing today that’s replacing God in many countries is liberal socialism which is man-centered.

26 For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.

Romans 1:26 BSB

“Dishonorable passions” is about sexual immorality. Sexual immorality has a broad meaning that encompasses all sexual sins. Here, it’s specific to homosexuality. God created men and women for marriage and procreation. When a man sleeps with a man or a woman sleeps with a woman, they become detestable to the Lord because that was not the purpose of God for them.

We are living in a day and age where homosexuality is forced on everyone to accept. The children are the ones in the most danger as they are like sponges, taking everything in. Satan understands that by focusing on the little ones—twisting their minds in school, they will grow up rejecting the God of the Bible—making it much easier for the devil to deceive them completely.

27 Likewise, the men abandoned natural relations with women and burned with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Romans 1:27 BSB

See verse 26 and its commentary. The phrase “received in themselves the due penalty” refers that in Judgment Day, their verdict will be guilty of being condemned to hell for their lifestyle, revealing that they have rejected Jesus as their Lord and Savior. To stay as a practicing homosexual for the rest of your life shows where your permanent home will be after death. A spiritual death sentence is when God gives you over to your sins.

This is the end of Part 3. Thank you for reading.
