Welcome to our bi-weekly post where we provide Bible verses, answers and advice to the questions and concerns you have. During the course of the last two weeks readers have submitted their questions and today we are going to answer some of them. So please join us and feel free to chime in on the discussion in the comments section below this post.
Before we get into this week’s questions we would like to point out that you are helping to spread the Word of God by your continued submission of questions. Because of your ongoing participation these Q&A posts have been read thousands of times. Without your participation this section of our site would not exist. So if you have a Biblical or non-Biblical question you would like to ask, submit it now for our next edition of “Bible: Question, Answer and Discussion“.
Question: Brandon, my question has to do with the fallen angels. Do you think that when they are kicked out of Heaven will they be scattered throughout the world? Also will the Elect know them using spiritual discernment or as Satan’s army?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Martha. When the fallen angels are cast out of Heaven with Satan they will appear together (Revelation 12:9). Satan and his angels will claim to be Christ and His Angels who have come to restore the Kingdom of God, but it is a lie. Please turn your Bible with me to,
2 Corinthians 11:
14 “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”
This word “transformed” is Strong’s word 3345 meaning, “to transfigure or disguise“. Satan will not be transformed into an angel of light. Instead, Satan and his angels will disguise themselves as angels of light by claiming to be Jesus Christ and His Angels.
After the initial appearance of Satan and his angels, I believe they will travel the globe to do Satan’s bidding.
Concerning your question about spiritual discernment.
I would like to point out I do not believe Satan or the fallen angels will be hiding. They are going to make it known they are on earth to rule (they only have five months to operate), but they will not claim to be fallen angels that is the key point here. They will claim to be the Angels of Christ. So naturally we will know they are the enemy. However, it may not be so cut and dry and honestly I think Satan has a lot of tricks up his sleeves.
Here is a thought… It is very possible God’s Angels will visit some of us during the Tribulation. So how would we know whether it is our Father’s Angel or Satan’s angel?
Please turn your Bible with me to,
1 John 4:1-3
1 “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
2 “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:”
3 “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
Each and everyday we need to ensure we stand guard against Satan and his wicked tactics. The Tribulation will be our ultimate test.
We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience.
