Jude 1:6 Dumb and Dumber Demons are Doomed
©2019 WF Cobb Truthbase.net DailyTruthbase.blogspot
6 And angels who did not keep aor their proper domain/first estate/principality, but left their own abode/habitation,
He has reserved/kept pft in everlasting/(of the age) chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;
I. Judgment is certain if not immediate for those who rebel against God's will and follow their own natural fleshly desires rather than God.
Enoch 6:1 when the children of men multiplied 2...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 3 and beget us children...'pay the penalty of a great sin' they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations 5 not to abandon this plan but to do this thing. 10:12...70 generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgment 13 for ever and ever is consummated. In those days they shall be led off to the abyss of fire: and 14 to the torment and the prison in which they shall be confined for ever. And whosoever shall be condemned and destroyed will from thenceforth be bound together with them to the end of all generations.
2Pt 2:1 false teachers among you...denying the Lord who bought them...2 the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 exploit you with deceptive words 4 God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to Tartarus and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,
10 especially those who walk acc to the flesh (temporal desires) in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed...13... carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, 14 having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin... 15 They have forsaken the right way and gone astray 17...for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness of the Age. 18 they allure thru the lusts of the flesh, thru wanton caprice, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage. 20 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world thru the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.
II. Good angels are loyal to God, praise Him, serve Him and those who will inherit salvation (glorification), and deliver Truth/justice
Ps 103:20 Bless the LORD, you his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. KJV
III. Bad angels/ppl are disloyal to God, praise and serve themselves and harm others, deceive/deliver lies, and suffer bondage/destruction.
Eph 2:1 you He made alive, who were dead in/by trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked acc to the course of this world, acc to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were naturally children of wrath, just as the others. Eph 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
1Pt 5:8 Be soundminded, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
IV. Demons deceive/deny/distort exclusive inspiration, and oppose/undermine the authority and works of Christ/Messiah (then & now)
1Tim 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, Such teachings come thru hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
A. Destroy (distortions/lies) God's servants rather than serving God and His church (purity & priority) [see Lies We Believe -Truthbase]
B. Denial of grace as the only basis for forgiveness of our sins and promote legalistic/lordship/works for forgiveness but deny reward
C. Denial of responsibility/accountability and judgment-reward for believers under the misguided guise of grace and fatalistic predestination
D. Denial of obedience as the essence of loyalty love to God with sham cries of legalism which is really a cover for wanton caprice
E. Deification of our desires rather than God's desires for us (rebellion) should be: not my will but Thine be done (humility vs pride)
Lk 8:35 came to Jesus, found the man from whom the demons had departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind.
2Tim 4:25 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.
IV. Defense Against Dark Arts [Truthbase] Js 4:7 (grace) submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Eph 6:17 Sword of HS
1Jn 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
Rev 2:10 Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.
Rev 12:9 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. 11 overcame by blood, testimony, not love lives Rev 20:2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 10 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.
Questions for Reflection/Discussion/Response:
1. How do we know that what we are believing and doing is truth, and God's desire/will? How do you protect yourself from being deceived?
2. Which if the doctrines of demons do you see in modern Christian? How can you help those taken captive by satan to do his will?
