3. How Are Angels Involved in Our Prayers? Our prayers can trigger
spiritual warfare (see Daniel 10:1–11:1, page 768).
4. What Role Will Angels Play in the End Times? Angels will play a
strategic role in spreading the everlasting gospel (see Revelation 14:6-7,
Just as there are angels who look out for your welfare, there are angels who are
bent upon your destruction. The Bible teaches that when Satan fell from heaven,
he took one-third of the angels with him (Revelation 12:4). Although we do not
know their exact number, Scripture tells us there are multitudes (Luke 2:13) and
legions (Matthew 26:53) of angels. So Satan has a sizable, highly organized force
under his control. These fallen angels, also known as demons, help Satan
accomplish his purpose, which, in the words of Christ, is to steal, kill, and
destroy. While the Bible does not give us specific details as to how demons work,
we can be confident that everything we need to know about them is found in
Scripture. We do not need to look elsewhere for insights into the spiritual world.
See what God’s Word has to say about these evil agents.
1. What Do Demons Believe? Strange as it may seem, demons acknowledge
that there is only one God (see James 2:19, page 1130).
2. Can Demons Personally Harm You? Those people who have a true
relationship with Christ cannot be overcome by demons; those who do not
are “fair game” for these servants of Satan (see Acts 19:13-20, page 994).
3. What Makes Demons Powerless? The name of Jesus used by the
followers of Jesus makes the demons tremble (see Luke 10:1-20, page 914).
The Bible gives us wonderful, vivid descriptions of heaven. From Scripture we
know that heaven’s streets are made of gold, and that pain, fear, and sorrow are
not present there. But even with all of this detail, we still fall short of understanding “the big picture.” That is because it is difficult for us to grasp the
absolute perfection and glory of heaven.
All splendor aside, though, what truly makes heaven spectacular is that we
will be forever in God’s presence. As the psalmist so poignantly expressed,
“You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the
pleasures of living with you forever” (Psalm 16:11).
