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