In the 1980's I read a book I believe by D. L. Moody with the above title which was his Masters thesis about the origin of demons. In it he proposed the idea that in genesis ch. 6 the sons of god that married the daughters of men, they were angels that married human women. This led to the Flood. Demons were the disembodied spirits of the fallen angels, trapped or imprisoned here on earth ever since. I tried to find the book but it has long since been out of print.

I love D.L. Moody, but in this case he was an idiot. However there are modern day idiots that believe this like, women married the Nephilim and they were fallen angels...

The flood came because G-d was sick and tired of putting up with man's sin and He will burn the Earth with fire when He has had enough again... There will be no demon to blame it on but human sin....

G-d is not a big mystery.... Nor His Word!!!!

I didn't post it because I have taken any sides, just the subject came up in a thread about UFO's and I thought it more belonged with conspiracy theories than a bible discussion forum. I don't care if et's exist, if they do God made them also, praise God, it doesn't effect our salvation at all.

I'm sure Lucifer has a big laugh every time we blame something on him that he deserves no credit for. Lead us not into temptations, we can find it all by ourselves.

I believe they are some of the demons, then there are demons that are in the second heavens who followed satan when he was thrown out of heaven, then there are the demons who where locked away in the book of jude. Some people say that the angels could not of mated with the women, but I believe they did. They took on strange flesh. That's why the world had to be destroyed all except Noah and his family. The animals were also corrupted and distorted from there natural form.

It took a long time to get here but this is where i wanted the conversation to go. I want to learn more. I think mental illness is real and not caused by demons although they may get involved along the line. We need to treat the mentaly ill as if they are sick. I won't back down from this.

I think that most mental illness is demons, but because there is no one going around casting them out like they did in the new testament., they need medication. Medication to slow down the body, makes the demon stop manifesting. In the new testament they knew they were demons, but now we call it mental illness. And they always end up and stop taking the medication and the demon manifest again. The demons like to confuse people and torment them.

I will admit that the weakened dellusional state of mind of a mentaly ill person is fertal ground for demons, sort of like a wounded animal seen limping by a predator. I have no doubt that demons do exist. People with no medical experience, training or background should probably stay away from this subject. You lack medical knowledge which can be quite harmful to you and the victims that mental illness and demons can claim. If you work in a ministry that deals with mental illness.
Moreover, it isn't your life at stake. The enemy dosn't care if it sacrifices the life of a mother, child or man. Come up to speed and realize that mental illness is as real as Polio.

ministries that involve mental illness are homeless, substance abuse, prison, gerriatric, sexual abuse and many others. If you are involved with these either get an education or get out!

Demons come in through sin, , some are from generational curses, that came from our ansesters. I take medicine, for panic attacks and anxiety. So they plague people in many different ways. Addiction is a demon. Their main objective is to keep us away from the knowledge of Christ. Most people deal with a demon in their life and don't know it.

I don't know but the desires are mostly gone now, I still like to look at beautiful women and the taste of good rum. Those things may never leave me. I throw myself on the mercy of jesus to please forgive mysinfull nature That's enough for now I think

Solomon said...That which is going to be has already been........world wide evidence of Giants from 9 to 20-45 feet tall....suppressed by museums, governments and college educated gurus.....here in the time of NOAH, here in the time of Joshua, here in the time of David....and according to JESUS the end of days will be similar to the days of Noah.....What I like the most about threads like this are the "All knowing ONES" that believe their view on Genesis 6 is all that and a bag of spiritual chips.....hilarious.....!

Many overlook that point..that ALL flesh had corrupted itself...my view--->genetic manipulation.....
