What is the difference between a Demon and a Devil?
There is a lot of confusion around demons and devils, as they are often used interchangeably. In this article, we’ll explore the differences between demons and devils.
The most important difference between a demon and a devil is their origin story. A demon came into existence with Satan during his rebellion against God in the Garden of Eden, whereas devils were never created by God – they live independently in hell or under the earth’s surface. Demons are also arrayed on Satan’s side, whereas devils oppose him at every turn.
Both demons and devils were both spirits who dwelt in a state of spiritual darkness. But the devil was a fallen angel who had been cast out of heaven and into earth to be imprisoned in an abyss. He was thus miserable and evil; he sunk into a lower state of spirits (being called a demon) because he wanted to remain independent and incorruptible.
Demons are fierce, powerful, intelligent, talented, and ruthless beings who are able to charm people by showing their beauty or strength – as Satan did with Eve in the Garden of Eden. Demons can also transform themselves into bewitching forms, such as beautiful young girls or handsome men.
Demons are the foremost spirits in Satan’s dark forces, and they are used to bring difficulties upon people’s lives. In the Bible, demons were known as evil “princes” or “captains”. They were all powerful spirit beings who had sided with Satan during his rebellion against God in heaven. They were cast down (expelled) from their heavenly positions, and came to earth to be imprisoned in hell or other parts of the cosmos. They were still very powerful and dangerous. In fact, a demon can completely obliterate the human soul from its place of residence.
Devils are described as powerful spirits who are intent on causing harm or destruction to those who believe in God and follow his ways. They appear as old enemies such as witches, sorcerers, witches or warlocks, which means they deliberately appear to cause harm or trouble for people at night. They are also known as imps or pixies (from Pixies of Shakespeare), which means those involved with the occult or witchery. The Bible tells us that both angels and humans can be possessed by devils.
As Satan had already fallen when he was in the Garden of Eden, he was already a demon under God’s commandment. Now that we are all told about demons and devils, it’s important to know how they can affect your life. A demon can be cast off the body by God only when you have faith in Christ and believe in his power. If you allow them to stay on your body, they will irritate you mentally and physically to make your life a misery. They are also able to take control of your mind by making you dream abnormal things or think thoughts which do not belong to you. They can also be very dangerous to youth because they can make them commit suicide.
Demons are also able to affect your life physically. They can cause a person to be sick, have a mental disorder, or even physical pain. They can also make you sick by affecting the nerves in your body, causing it to malfunction and give you sharp pains which cannot be cured. If they are on your body too long they can also disturb your mind and make you lose all sense of direction by giving you false directions in life.
Devils are said to possess people physically by making them go into trances where they become violent and aggressive; often this is because of a weakness in their spirit. They can also cast spells over a person’s life to cause them to act in certain ways. Devils can also cause people to act inappropriately, sexually – such as lust or malevolence. They can also influence you to do things that may ultimately lead you into hell.
