Are demons real? If you can answer a hands down flat out yes, then you’ve probably got your reasons to have that opinion. I know without a doubt that I’ve got my reasons to believe that they’re real. There’s no reason to try and squeeze this topic into one post here on the site, so I believe that this subject can easily span several different posts. This post is merely the introduction to what I think will wind up as a series. I’m going to try not to bite off more than I can chew with this post in particular, so let me start by making a few things clear.
I despise demons, and in no way enjoy talking about them. There’s no alterior motive behind this post, save only to open some eyes about the supernatural truth concerning these beings, and that they’re not some fairy tale. Demonic forces are very real and very effective in whatever they specialize in. In no way do I aim to glorify anything about them, but to shine a light on them so that moving forward, you can spot them from a mile away and respond accordingly.
*UPDATE* Because of the response to this Are Demons Real Series, I was encouraged to write a book on the topic called Kingdom of Darkness in a Fallen World. This book goes into better detail about the subject matter, and is geared to educate Christians about the tactical maneuvers going on in the spirit, and exposes the supernatural truth behind the origins and ruler of that dark kingdom, Satan himself. It is available at this time at Amazon.com or at Createspace eStore.
It won’t be a quick and easy process, but I guess it may help if I were to eventually share a few experiences with you, perhaps in an up and coming post. But to make a quick statement of it, I’ve seen real demons in the past, I’ve had to deal with demonic possession in my own personal life as a youth, and have had occasion to help others that have either been possessed or oppressed by demonic forces since. That’s the skinny of why I know there are real demons out there creating real problems for people. You’d have an easier time convincing me that the moon is made out of paper towels and jelly beans, than if you were to try and convince me that there’s no such thing as demons.

The world desperately needs more exorcists
Linda Massarella, New York Post
December 29, 2016 11:14am
A NEW York woman who levitated six inches off the ground, mysteriously spoke in foreign languages and demonstrated paranormal powers made medical history in 2008 because a panel of doctors agreed she was possessed by the devil.
In presenting the case of “Julia” in the New Oxford Review, board certified psychiatrist Dr. Richard Gallagher cautioned that religious practitioners should be on alert for what he called a “rapidly growing worldwide phenomenon.”

Spiritual Wickedness in High Places
So even if demons are real, who cares? As Christians, why should we be bothered to hear about or learn a bit about demons? Because we are in a spiritual battle at all times.
I would never suggest that you run down the rabbit hole and find out all kinds of meaningless particulars, or start getting into demonology or anything like that. But I’d like to remind you that Jesus, dealt with them all the time. The Apostles, dealt with them all of the time. We, hardly ever deal with them if at all.
Ephesians 6: 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Jesus has defeated all of these forces that cause us all kinds of affliction, so Stay in God’s Word, have faith in God through Christ Jesus, and fear not. There’s nothing wrong with any of that at all, in fact, it’s a must for those of us who take Christ seriously.
But at least safely gain enough knowledge to see what they’re up to so that we believers can do battle using that sword of the Spirit Paul mentions in Ephesians Chapter 6. For more about the weapons of our warfare, check out the Whole Armor of God section (link opens in a new tab so you don’t lose your place on this page). The more I think about it, the more It looks like there will be all kinds of topics that I’ll try to cover in this series of posts. Some among them may possibly be:
- Origins-Where did they come from?
- Are Demons Fallen Angels?
- Biblical References
- Recognizing their handiwork
- What are Principalities?
- Satan – The Father of Lies
- Are Ghosts and Aliens demons?
- Testimonials (If you have a testimony about being delivered or coming out of demonic run religions, please let me know)
- The Whole Armor of God
- Anything else that comes to mind.
- 1/29/2016 UPDATE All links to following parts to this series have been included toward the end of this post.
Will definitely pray about exactly how the Lord wants me to tackle this subject. The list I just laid out for you is pretty much some ideas off the cuff. Not exactly in that order and may change due to how things work out. I’m open to topic suggestions that may not fall under those categories, so if you have any, let me know. Ideally, I plan to release a new post every few days or so to tackle these topics and make them available for you to sink your figurative teeth into. I guess we’ll see.
In this intro, I would strongly suggest getting your hands on a Bible. If you don’t have one of your very own and would like to be particular as to what kind of Bible you wish to have, click the link below. There are going to be a ton of scriptures referenced in the posts ahead, but it’s best for you to check me by God’s Word for yourself. For example, how would you know whether or not I twisted several words in a verse to fit my own agenda? Without checking it out for yourself, you wouldn’t know. That is exactly how tons of presuppositions begin and needless religious practices are introduced, by people not getting in the Word to see what the Lord has to say for themselves.

Suffering from Demonic issues?
I want to take this chance right now to any who are reading this and already recognize without any help at all that they are being harassed by unseen forces. I want you to know that there is a way out. There is a way to get them to leave you alone. There is power in the name of Jesus! If you want them to be horrified of you, they need to no longer see you, but Christ Jesus in you instead.
Here’s a quick video of a testimony about someone that doesn’t need any help with the question,”Are Demons Real?” A testimony of being troubled by demonic forces, and how it was dealt with. This is only one example out of thousands that could be placed here.
This video is from the LoveisEverything YouTube Chanel.
Jesus loved you enough to die for you, and when he did that, Jesus established something that is very important in this day and age. He made us able through the Holy Spirit, to do the things that he did. Including casting out demons, and shows us how to be made safe from the wiles of the devil. All that he asks to be able to receive any of this, is that you just simply believe in him. Please continue to the Revelation of Salvation page for the next step in getting the upper hand on these things that have been messing with you.
Demonic forces certainly are as real as it gets. Day after day, you can find one testimony rolling over another, of demonic intervention in people’s lives, coupled with the one and only remedy to the situation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Please notice, you will find it difficult to get through the prayer if you are being harassed by demonic forces. Do it anyway, ask Jesus to help you get through it even if you can’t get the words out to ask, say them in your head until you can say them out of your mouth. It’s truly a fight. What that means is that they are trying to control you or probably scare you out of acknowledging that you need Jesus, or is otherwise trying to prevent you from ruining their work with you.
Don’t let them get away with it. Be strong in the Lord and in the Power of His Might! And if you do go over to the Revelation of Salvation page and manage to pray that prayer in truth and meaning every word, welcome to the family!
