The term Demon derives from the Greek word wise guardian spirit, which is an interesting concept since the present word represents dark and evil forces of Satan.  In most of the research that I have conducted I have noticed a pattern in a majority of the religions stating that demons derive from the deadly sin of Adam and Eve.  There are legends and myths through out Christianity and various other religions about the demons that possess the land.  I am going to discuss the current research on Demons and the warning signs to prevent them from entering someone's life.

    Demons are said to be derived directly from Lucipher himself, but that depends on your religion and beliefs.  They can enter this world in various ways, but we are the number one entranceway for them.  They can enter by the following according to my research:

·         Ouija Boards and Séances: Both of which go hand in hand with opening doorways into the other side.  If you are attempting to contact a spirit these are not the outlets you want to take.  These two techniques not only open the door to the spirit you are trying to contact, but opens up every door on the other side, leaving our world vulnerable to anything.  A second downside is that demons can take the form of a past relative or someone close to you to gain your trust, so they can be invited into your home. 

·         Invitation:  A demon can only enter into our dimension by being invited; we are gullible enough to believe into the deception that a demon can give off by transforming itself into someone we care about that has passed on.

·         Poorly conducted spells:  Any type of magic can invoke a demon into our realm; it’s an open invitation by doing the wrong incantation.  There are stories of people casting a protection spell and ending up with a demon because they modified the spell incorrectly.

·         A psychic mistake:  Most psychics and mediums are not trained sufficiently to deal with a demon; since they are considered doorways into the other side they are easily taken advantage of.

·         A susceptible mind: A person that has been diagnosed with any type of depression or psychosis is susceptible to a demon taking control of them.  Due to the fact that demons feed on depression, rage, and paranoia, they harvest on them if they have the opportunity.

·         Energy displacement that evolved into a semi intelligent paranormal manifestation: There is a theory that energy either becomes so strong that it manifests into an intelligent apparition or a poltergeist evolves into a demonic spirit due to the immense ability that it already has.

    A susceptible mind slightly discusses internal control and the other bulletins slightly discuss external control of a demonic spirit.   Internal control is questioned by researches frequently due to the fact that it does not seem to be as common as external control.  The meaning of internal control is, a demon possesses your mind and uses your body as a host.  The entrance of the demon is strange primarily because a demon needs invited into our realm, but to enter the mind of a human would require more work.    The criteria to enter a person's mind would need to include an invitation by something, and for that demon to have a desire to gain entrance, thus the susceptible mind.  Once inside the mind the Demon can portray horrific images and cause torment through out the memories to make the person insane.  A demon does not have the power to kill you, but they can implant images to make you commit suicide.  They harvest the anger and sorrow because they are resentful of a living life that they will never possess.  To remove the dark presence from a person's mind they must understand how the entity entered, they can only be removed if there is an understanding on how they arrived.  From there a holy man can perform an exorcism and hopefully remove the uninvited guest.

    Any warning signs and effects can explain external control from a demon.  Foul odors and growling are the two most common pieces of evidence of a demon being present.  The only harm they can inflict would be causing small scratches, moving objects, levitating objects, or throwing light objects.  If any of these signs are taking place remain calm and do not show any sign of anger or fear towards it.  They will immediately gain control of the situation because they feed from the negative emotions that we give off when we become afraid.  If you remain calm enough the danger will subside, allowing you enough time to contact a professional.

 

 

A demon is, in conventional thought, a being of pure malevolence - essentially, an element of evil consisting of the Devil and his many minions. Demons not in the underworld are either free on Earth or living temporarily in the abyss before going back to Gehenna, the "lake of fire," to join Satan, other demons, and the unsaved.

One similarity in demons among several that embrace Christianity is the origin of the "head demon." It is frequently believed that the head demon started out as an angel in good standing with God, then after quarreling with God and being defeated, was condemned to rule the underworld. In the Bible, Lucifer begins as an angel, battles God, and is sent to rule the underworld after his defeat.

In most cultures, demons personify evil, pain and suffering. A demon exploits a specific weakness in man, creates a certain suffering for man, or wants some special thing from man. Demons are said to have many powers, such as prophecy, that are alluring to men.

One significant finding in the study of demons is that multiple demons exist in most documented cases, frequently in a hierarchy where each demon has its own name and unique characteristics.

To the Ancient Greeks, daimons were minor deities - not necessarily good or evil. The good demons were called Eudemons, and evil demons were called Cacodemons. Many Eastern recognize a number of different demons. For example, ancient had the Mira, which embodied all that was evil; and the Indian demons are lead by the powerful Ravana, which is believed by that group of people to change shape and remain invulnerable to all.

Only in its modern connotation does the word, "demon," evoke the idea of evil spirits. The Greek word daemon, from which the words daimon and demon are ultimately derived, means "genius and intelligence," and has been applied indiscriminately to all beings whether good or evil.

People have done with regards to demons what they have done to angels. Just as they have imagined that there are beings created perfectly from all eternity, they have also imagined that beings created of lower degrees are eternally evil.

The origins of the belief of demons among the ancient societies of the world have been shrouded in mystery and it is uncertain just exactly where the concept started, though a good start would be with the Persian and Assyrian empires... some of the most ancient civilizations that we are aware of today.

Nearly every culture that has been recorded in the history of mankind has had some form or variation of demonic belief. Today the most widely recognized aspects of demonology are derived from Judaic, Christian and Catholic sources. Many archaic stereotypes presented within these religions, as well as the prolific historical inaccuracies long associated with fictional print and media, persist in spite of evidence to the contrary.

Most people today imagine short horns, leathery bat-like wings, long pointy tails and menacing pitchforks to be the common accepted image of demons in general, and Satan in specific. However, this is a far cry from how demons were presented in the past.

Initially, in many of the most ancient cultures of the past, demons were seen as having the capacity for both good and evil. The origin of the word demon, in fact, may have come from Indo-European sources and simply meant 'Celestial Body'.

There has often been confusion when regarding Devils and Demons in many Orthodox traditions. A Devil is an entity who usually fights a goodly and divine authority for control of existence. Many such battles will be settled in an 'End of Time' scenario where the forces of good vanquish the forces of evil.

Demons are much like Angels in that they are lesser beings who are usually under the authority of the prevailing Devil. They are always malevolent in nature, and seek to torment humans with their dark and wicked ways. The means by which they wreak havoc are threefold:

#1: In spiritual form they whisper evil thoughts into a person's mind, trying to corrupt them to do wrong.

#2: In spiritual form they restlessly wander the earth and torment others with their mere appearance.

#3: They actually possess someone and control their actions, usually causing them to harm others, or at the very least, themselves. This is called 'Possession', and even today it wreaks fear in many just by even mentioning it.

Another thing that is usually representative of demons in nearly every culture; they are usually grotesque in appearance, and more than likely half animal at least.

Perhaps one of the greater influences in restoring interest in demons and their study in the mid-20th century was Anton LaVey, the author of the Satanic Bible and the founder of the Church of Satan. LaVey believed that Christianity was a repressed religion, and the true power of satanic belief was the lack of limits imposed on the believer. LaVey believed that man ought to have the supreme choice over his life, not a God, or any god.

Damned by the gods; feared by man; demons have made their home on earth, and they're here to stay.

A demon is generally understood as a metaphysical or mystical being, generally characterized by their evil nature or origin. While good demons are found occasionally in from authors such as and Hesiod, in general a demon refers to a malevolent being that acts as the “enemy” in most works of

The most famous demons are found in, where they are understood to be the fallen angels. These being are said to have once been angels in heaven, but they joined forces with Lucifer when he rebelled. When the rebellion failed, Lucifer and all of his compatriots were cast out of heaven into hell, where they became demons.

The goal of the demons of hell, as stated in literary works such as Milton’s “Paradise Lost,” is basically to cause trouble for earth, heaven, and the world, in order to undermine the order of the universe. In Revelations and other biblical prophecies, demons are predicted to fail in this endeavor at the end of time, when they will be completely destroyed.

Philosophically speaking a demon is actually a result of the idea of angels. In general people’s religious and metaphysical beliefs encompass ideas of unity, where the good side is balanced out by an equally powerful negative side. Often the balance of power is skewered to some extent to the good guys, but the demon is what allows the good side to have a reason for existing.

The reason you need both sides of the conflict is that life itself is full of both good and evil. Describing a world full of angels without demons, doesn’t make sense, because bad and evil things happen all of the time. It is in the balance that the story becomes more plausible.
