Most Christians know there are evil angels (fallen, full of darkness) and God's faithful Holy Angels, who serve God in pure righteousness. There are certain facts however completely unknown to some Christians and the unsaved who are potential converts to God's glorious salvation, through the Son of God - Jesus Christ.

Regarding my comment in the audio (Link below) that Jesus was the one who casts Satan into the bottomless pit/abyss (5th trumpet Revelation), please note that the angel came down from Heaven, not from Earth or Hell. Would a Kingdom be divided against itself and a demon cast his Master into the pit (Mark 3:24)? Was it not Jesus whom the legion of demons in Luke Chapter 8, begged not to cast them into the abyss? Some Scholars say that Jesus appeared at least 4 times in the Old Testament as an angel (Example: Melchizedek, whom Abraham paid tithes to - Genesis 14 :18-20). Also Read Genesis 32:24-30 and Revelation 20:1. In the simplest terms, angel means "a sent messenger". John 3:17 "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him." Whether serving the Heavenly Father at times, as an angel or not, Jesus was first and foremost, God's Son - part of the eternal Godhead/Holy Trinity.

There are things we are yet to truly understand, such as, is this scripture retrospective (looking back)? Or, this one - Luke 10:18 - "And he [Jesus] said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven."? Or, is it a second fall of this evil angelic kingdom? 1 Corinthians 13:12 says: "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." Some people say I don't study those type things, I only study things about Jesus Christ and His ministry to us.

AN INTERESTING SCRIPTURE: Revelation 10:1 - "Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head. His face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire." (Similar to other descriptions of The Glorified Christ Jesus.)

I absolutely agree that "Jesus Christ and him crucified" ( 2 Corinthians 2:2)", is the greatest message that exists, however, what about those people who will not accept the Holy Bible because they don't understand why there is evil in the world and why it continues and worsens? Some teaching and understanding by Christians in this area, may help the to teach those who find this issue as a stumbling block, by giving them at least some understanding on the subject, as they are open to hearing/reading it.

As a kind of recap of the information in THE AUDIO (link below this article), plus a bit more info added for good measure I want to point-out a question to Holy Bible believers (rhetorical or answer by comment if you wish). That question is - Where did the evil spirits we call demons, devils and unclean spirits come from? My Biblically based thoughts: It can't be said they came as a result of tempting Eve and Adam because there are also those that come out of a compartment of Hell (bottomless pit), during The Great Tribulation, like a great swarm of demonic locusts (Revelation 9:3).

They are still in the Hell or "Tartarus" (Greek - not myth) they were placed in at some time unknown. Hell, itself is not found in God's Genesis creation narrative. Why is it inside earth and was his confidence so low in mankind - created in His own image and likeness? No, it's clear by 2 Peter 2:4 and Jude verse 6 that there was an early fall of unholy angels who fell with Lucifer (Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28) into the Hell prepared for them Matthew 24:41. Satan will be loosed for a "little season" after the Millennial Reign (after 1000 years of peace with Jesus ruling) to tempt the world a final time (Revelation 20:3-7). I believe he was loosed for a little season, when he tempted Adam and lied and blasphemed God (“Satan said: God lied," and "God is afraid.. - Genesis 3:4-5"). To see if they truly wanted fellowship and relationship with their Heavenly Father.

Satan was in sin and was obviously a fallen angel before Eve and Adam ever responded to his temptations. However, I've referenced the scriptures saying the angels who sinned were cast down to Hell but when Eve and Adam were tempted and they fell from God's grace (temporarily, thanks to Our Lord Jesus Christ) the devil was not cast down but roams the earth. Satan is even currently called "god of this world" - 2 Corinthians 4:4. Satan proclaimed he would "exalt his throne into heaven and above the stars of God" - Isaiah 14:13. God responded, "I will cast thee to the ground", also stated in Ezekiel 28:17.

A seemingly unrelated point but that is actually very much related is that We can cast out of our minds the age of the earth, regarding one single human-looking footprint found by dinosaur footprints. These single footprints are arguably a slightly slid animal footprint. There needs to be MANY more footprints to prove men walked on earth at the same time as dinosaurs - an obviously different dispensation.

In the book of Enoch (NOT IN THE BIBLICAL CANNON OF SCRIPTURES), he states "And they [Angel/Man Hybrids - Giants] began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones.". This was one writer (Enoch) whom God loved so much, that they walked together on earth, until a day God took Enoch up to Heaven to be with him there. Genesis 5:24 "Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away." - Holy Bible: NIV. This also is something simply to ponder regarding Enoch's book because we have only partial knowledge regarding it and studying the Holy Bible itself, is of far more importance.

Author's Bio: 

I am a graduate of Liberty University (1996) for completion of theological studies. Bible studies are one of my most-covered book-subjects. I am however, careful to only address those subjects I believe God has given me correct revelation on. I was a Christian Youth Minister, beginning in the 1980s for approximately 20 years (between youth ministries I served in other church capacities as well). I was also a guest speaker to churches, who invited me to present important Bible teachings to their evangelical congregations, during those same years. I am a redeemed man, who has received salvation by acceptance of Jesus Christ and what he did for me in shedding his blood and dying for me on the cross and in his resurrection from the dead, giving me the promise of eternal life, purely by grace (not due to anything I have done, other than to accept it freely).
