Spiritual Beings

Updated: Dec 7, 2021

Who or What are they?



Bible Project explains -

In the opening pages of the Bible, God creates two overlapping realms, the heavens and the earth. This is where the drama of the biblical storyline takes place. Many of us are familiar with the earthly drama. Humans are given a wonderful garden to rule on God’s behalf, but they lose access to this paradise because of a foolish rebellion. But the biblical authors want us to see another set of characters, the inhabitants of the heavenly realm who are also heavily involved in this earthly story.

For lots of different reasons, many modern readers of the Bible don’t notice these characters or don’t know what to make of them. Most of our modern portrayals of angels and demons are based on deep misunderstandings of what the biblical authors are trying to tell us about these creatures. Spiritual beings play a really important role in the biblical story, and that’s what this video series is all about.

"Angels" is a book written by Dr. Michael S. Heiser. In this episode, Steve Bancarz talks with Dr. Heiser about that book and why he wrote it. They also discuss many New and Age fringe beliefs on angels. This is part 1 of a 3 part series. Learn more at https://www.fringepop321.com​.









 

"The world is enslaved by intelligent evil"


Demons and evil spirits in scripture: Dr. Michael Heiser is back to discuss demons and the evil spirits found in scripture. The storyline of the Bible presents a populated spiritual world, full of creatures who are in rebellion against their Creator, just like humans.

For lots of fascinating reasons, our modern conceptions of these spiritual rebels are based on serious misunderstandings of the Bible. So let’s go back to the book of Genesis and start over as we learn about the powers of spiritual evil in the story of the Bible. We will discuss what the scriptures say about Satan and demons, we will talk about the governmental structure of these rulers of darkness, and hopefully, we will have time to discuss demon possession and the spiritual warfare Christians are commanded to participate in.
