A  SMALL PRIMER ON:

 

Satan, Demons, & Giants

 

 

William Blake "Satan in Glory"

 

"Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor..."

Ezekiel 28:17

 

"For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves

into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works."

2 Corinthians 11:13-15

 

 

Who Lucifer Was/Is

 

    A Created Being - A Cherub

"You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering: the sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created. "You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. "By the abundance of your trading you became filled with violence within, and you sinned; therefore I cast you as a profane thing out of the mountain of God; and I destroyed you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the fiery stones. "Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground, I laid you before kings, that they might gaze at you. "You defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your trading; therefore I brought fire from your midst; it devoured you, and I turned you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all who saw you. All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you; you have become a horror, and shall be no more forever."'" Ezekiel 28:12-19

 

    A Created Being With a Personality
"Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. And the LORD said to Satan , "From where do you come?" So Satan answered the LORD and said, "From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it." Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?" So Satan answered the LORD and said, "Does Job fear God for nothing? Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. But now, stretch out Your hand and touch all that he has, and he will surely curse You to Your face!" And the LORD said to Satan , "Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person." So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD." Job 1:6-12

"Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. And the LORD said to Satan , "From where do you come?" Satan answered the LORD and said, "From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it." Then the LORD said to Satan , "Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil? And still he holds fast to his integrity, although you incited Me against him, to destroy him without cause." So Satan answered the LORD and said, "Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life. But stretch out Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will surely curse You to Your face!" And the LORD said to Satan , "Behold, he is in your hand, but spare his life." Job 2:1-6
 

 

The Fall Of Lucifer (Satan)


"How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.' Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit. "Those who see you will gaze at you, and consider you, saying: 'Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, Who made the world as a wilderness and destroyed its cities, who did not open the house of his prisoners?'"
Isaiah 14:12-17

 

Where Satan's Throne Is

(Pergamos = Modern day Turkey (And what a miserable place that is, along with surrounding areas. Not to mention persecution for Christians and Jews.))


"And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, 'These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: "I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan's throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells." Revelation 2:12-14
 

 

Where Satan Frequents


    Currently - Heaven and Earth (Until he is cast out of heaven in a future event)
"Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. And the LORD said to Satan, "From where do you come?" So Satan answered the LORD and said, "From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it." Job 1:6-7
 

 

What Satan Does

 

    Blinds People From The Gospel - Keep People From Being Saved
"But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age (Satan) has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them."2 Corinthians 4:3-4
 

    Steals The Words Of God From Peoples Hearts
"And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts." Mark 4:15
 

    Transforms Himself Into An Angel Of Light

    (False preachers, teachers, ministers,... wolves in sheep's clothing)
"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works."
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
 

    He Oppresses

"God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil..." Acts 10:38
 

    Deceives The Whole World

"So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan , who deceives the whole world;" Revelation 12:9

 

    Murders And Lies

"He (Satan) was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it." John 8:44-45

 

    He Raises Up Wicked Sons
"He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels." Matthew 13:37-39

 

    Can Exhibit Power, Signs, And Lying Wonders

"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan , with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish,..." 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10

    He Accuses The Saved

"Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down." Revelation 12:10
 

    Persecuted And Will Persecute Israel
"Now when the dragon (Satan) saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman (Israel) who gave birth to the male Child (The Messiah - Jesus)." Revelation 12:13-14
 

    And.... he does many more things too. Anything he can do to keep you away from God, from Jesus Christ, from being saved, he will do. Because he wants you to go to the same place he's heading - judgment and the lake of fire (hell). He hates everyone (yes, you reader), even those who want to be on his side, they are headed for hell too. So he wants to take as many people with him as possible. He is everyone's enemy.


 

What Satan Owns

 

    Currently - All The Kingdoms of the World
"Then the devil, taking Him (Jesus) up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, "All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours."" Luke 4:5-7


Satan's Future

 

    Will Be Cast Down To Earth
"So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan , who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." Revelation 12:9

    Will Be Bound For A 1000 Years
"He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years (The literal 1000 year reign of Christ); and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished." Revelation 20:2-3


    Will Be Released

"Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea." Revelation 20:7-8

    Will Be Cast Into The Lake Of Fire
"The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever." Revelation 20:10 (The Lake of Fire was originally created for the devil and his angels, but it's also a place for all the unregenerate or unsaved. Matthew 25:41 and Revelation 20:11-15)

Giants: Rephaim, Anakim (Anak), Emim, Zamzummin (Zuzim)

 

Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. And the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God (the fallen angels) came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. Genesis 6:1-4

In the fourteenth year Chedorlaomer and the kings that were with him came and attacked the Rephaim (Giants) in Ashteroth Karnaim, the Zuzim (Giants) in Ham, the Emim (Giants) in Shaveh Kiriathaim...

Genesis 14:5-6

 

But the men who had gone up with him said, "We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we."  And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, "The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature. There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight." Numbers 13:31-33

 

The Emim had dwelt there in times past, a people as great and numerous and tall as the Anakim. They were also regarded as giants, like the Anakim, but the Moabites call them Emim.  Deuteronomy 2:10-11

 

That was also regarded as a land of giants; giants formerly dwelt there. But the Ammonites call them Zamzummim,  a people as great and numerous and tall as the Anakim. Deuteronomy 2:20-21

 

For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of the giants. Indeed his bedstead was an iron bedstead. (Is it not in Rabbah of the people of Ammon?) Nine cubits is its length and four cubits its width, according to the standard cubit. (Total length: 13.5 feet) Deuteronomy 3:11

 

The rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to half the tribe of Manasseh. (All the region of Argob, with all Bashan, was called the land of the giants. Deuteronomy 3:13

 

The other king was Og king of Bashan and his territory, who was of the remnant of the giants, who dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,  and reigned over Mount Hermon...  Joshua 12:4-5

 

... all the kingdom of Og in Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants... Joshua 13:12

 

The border went up to the top of the mountain that lies before the Valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of the Valley of Rephaim (Giants) northward. Joshua 15:8-9

 

So Joshua answered them, "If you are a great people, then go up to the forest country and clear a place for yourself there in the land of the Perizzites and the giants, since the mountains of Ephraim are too confined for you."  Joshua 17:15

 

Then the border came down to the end of the mountain that lies before the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, which is in the Valley of the Rephaim (Giants)...  Joshua 18:16

 

Then Ishbi-Benob, who was one of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose bronze spear was three hundred shekels, who was bearing a new sword, thought he could kill David. 2 Samuel 21:16

 

Then Sibbechai the Hushathite killed Saph, who was one of the sons of the giant. 2 Samuel 21:18-19

 

Again there was war at Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaare-Oregim the Bethlehemite killed the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver's beam. 2 Samuel 21:19

 

Yet again there was war at Gath, where there was a man of great stature, who had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, twenty-four in number; and he also was born to the giant. So when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea, David's brother, killed him.  2 Samuel 21:20-21

 

These four were born to the giant in Gath, and fell by the hand of David and by the hand of his servants. 2 Samuel 21:22

 

Now it happened afterward that war broke out at Gezer with the Philistines, at which time Sibbechai the Hushathite killed Sippai, who was one of the sons of the giant. 1 Chronicles 20:4

 

Again there was war with the Philistines, and Elhanan the son of Jair killed Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver's beam. 1 Chronicles 20:5

 

(Second recording of this event)

Yet again there was war at Gath, where there was a man of great stature, with twenty-four fingers and toes, six on each hand and six on each foot; and he also was born to the giant. So when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea, David's brother, killed him. 1 Chronicles 20:6-7

 

(Second recording of this event)

These were born to the giant in Gath, and they fell by the hand of David and by the hand of his servants. 1 Chronicles 20:8

 

More references to the "Valley of Giants" or Rephaim:

Genesis 15:20

2 Samuel 5:18, 5:22, 23:13

1 Chronicles 11:15, 14:9

Isaiah 17:5

 

 

Giants: Some random info:

- Satan attempts to contaminate the bloodline of the human race to destroy/ prevent/thwart Gods plan of redemption.

God reveals that a Messiah will eventually be born to save mankind, so Satan tries to ruin that plan.

- The main reason for the flood was to rid the earth of the giants.

- The reason why God commanded Israel to wipe out every man, women, and child, from certain tribes was because there was a genetic problem.

- Fallen angels that fornicated with humans had children that were giants. The spirits of dead giants are demons. There is no redemption for the fallen angels, Satan, or the giants - they are damned beings who face judgment and a hopeless eternal future in the lake of fire. This may be part of the reason Satan, the fallen angels, and their children - the giants, have such hatred for mankind: Because God provided a hope for us; an atonement for sin; so that we could be saved from judgment. But He did not provide that for them. They sinned, and that was it - they now face judgment. We sinned, and we have a hope - God has paid the price for our sins through the sacrifice of Jesus - and we can be saved from the coming judgment and be reunited with God and spend the rest of our eternal lives with Him.

 

 

 

 

 

Buffalo Bill

 

A very interesting story:

One such legend, related by Buffalo Bill in his autobiography, centers on a creation myth. According to Cody, one night a group of Pawnees came into camp bringing with them a number of large bones, one of which a doctor with Cody's expedition identified as a human thighbone. The Pawnees maintained that the bones belonged to an ancient race of men who inhabited the country and were three times the size of human beings of the day. Any one of these giants could run down a buffalo and tear off its leg with one hand and then eat it as he walked. However, these giant men did not believe in the Great Spirit; they were not intimidated by the thunder and lightning and laughed at it. This angered the Great Spirit, and he sent a great rainstorm that drove the giants to the hills. But the water rose and covered the mountaintops as well, and the conceited giants were drowned. Once the floodwaters receded, the Great Spirit considered that he had made men too large and powerful, and he would henceforth re-create them smaller and weaker. The Pawnees maintained that this was Indian history handed down to them from time out of mind. This explains why men are not like the giants of old and have to work harder to hunt and to live. Cody adds an interesting note to this episode. He remarked that since their expedition had no wagons with them and the thighbone was very large, it had to be left behind.

 

 

 

Lincoln at Niagara Falls

In the autumn of 1848, Abraham Lincoln campaigned for Whig presidential candidate Zachary Taylor in Massachusetts.  On the way home to Illinois, he visited Niagara Falls, and found the sight so impressive that he started writing about it. His unfinished meditation on the falls probably dates from the end of September:

It calls up the indefinite past. When Columbus first sought this continent—when Christ suffered on the cross—when Moses led Israel through the Red-Sea—nay, even, when Adam first came from the hand of his Maker—then as now, Niagara was roaring here. The eyes of that species of extinct giants, whose bones fill the mounds of America, have gazed on Niagara, as ours do now. Co[n]temporary with the whole race of men, and older than the first man, Niagara is strong, and fresh to-day as ten thousand years ago. The Mammoth and Mastadon—now so long dead, that fragments of their monstrous bones, alone testify, that they ever lived, have gazed on Niagara.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where Demons Come From

(This is NOT from God's Word, the Bible. It is an uninspired piece of historical extra-biblical material from the Book of Enoch. I strongly believe this piece to be accurate in its description of what happened.)

 

In a nutshell - Fallen Angels (The Watchers) had sex with human females. Their offspring were giants. When those giants died, their spirits continued on, roaming the earth and causing trouble, and those spirits are called "demons". Read on if you want more detail.

 

Mount Hermon in Israel (Northern border with Syria)

 

1“And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them
beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them,
and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us
children.' And Semjāzā, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this
deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' And they all answered him and said: 'Let
us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do
this thing.' Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And
they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon,
and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations
upon it.”

“And He answered and said to me, and I heard His voice: 'Fear not, Enoch, thou righteous man and scribe
of righteousness: approach hither and hear my voice. And go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who
have sent thee to intercede for them: "You should intercede" for men, and not men for you: Wherefore
have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the
daughters of men and taken to yourselves wives, and done like the children of earth, and begotten giants
(as your) sons? And though ye were holy, spiritual, living the eternal life, you have defiled yourselves
with the blood of women, and have begotten (children) with the blood of flesh, and, as the children
of men, have lusted after flesh and blood as those also do who die and perish. Therefore have I given
them wives also that they might impregnate them, and beget children by them, that thus nothing might
be wanting to them on earth. But you were formerly spiritual, living the eternal life, and immortal for
all generations of the world. And therefore 2 I have not appointed wives for you; for as for the spiritual
ones of the heaven, in heaven is their dwelling. And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits
and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits
have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men, and from the holy Watchers is
their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called.
[As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which
were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.] 3 And the spirits of the giants afflict,
oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no
food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against
the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.”

“From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death of the giants, from the souls of whose flesh
the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgement--thus shall they destroy until
the day of the consummation, 4 the great judgement in which the age shall be consummated, over the
Watchers and the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated." And now as to the Watchers who have
sent thee to intercede for them, who had been aforetime in heaven, (say to them): "You have been
in heaven, but all the mysteries had not yet been revealed to you, and you knew worthless ones, and
these in the hardness of your hearts you have made known to the women, and through these mysteries
women and men work much evil on earth." Say to them therefore: "You have no peace."'”
(Book of Enoch. Chapters 6, 15, 16)
 

References in the Bible:

 

1"Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. ... There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown." Genesis 6:1-4
 

2"For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven." Matthew 22:30-31 (It says they neither marry or are given in marriage, but these angels disobeyed God and their function. Also, just because they weren't made to be married does not mean they had no reproductive organs. The Bible does not say that. It just says they weren't made to be married.)
 

3"When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first." Matthew 12:43-45

 

4"And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." Jude 6-7

 

What Demons Do

 

    Can Possess The Unsaved

"But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come out of him!" And when the demon had thrown him in their midst, it came out of him and did not hurt him." Luke 4:35
 

     Can Possess Other Creatures (Animals & other creatures/hybrids they create: "aliens", hybrid animal/human, etc.)

"Then the demons went out of the man and entered the swine , and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the lake and drowned." Luke 8:33

 

     Torment People

"And as he was still coming, the demon threw him down and convulsed him. Then Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, healed the child, and gave him back to his father." Luke 9:42

The Future Of Demons

 

They Face Judgment

"And suddenly they cried out, saying, "What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?" Matthew 8:29
