Bible Question and Answer
Question: I know Satan and his angels will be released when it’s time, but are any of these bad angels here now? I read the book of Ezek, the vehicles, have the already been seen, but just called UFO’s and another question I know Satan will be supernatural, will or how do we tell about his angels when they get released? Thank you.

Answer: Thank you for the question Faithful.
To ensure our other readers are on the same page with us, Revelation 12:7-9 documents Satan is cast from Heaven to earth along with his angels and we cover this in question 3. We also have two chapters in “The Timeline of the Tribulation” that cover Satan’s appearance as well. You will find that in Chapter 4 and 5.
No wicked angels are physically here on earth at this time. In the spirit? Absolutely.
I want to cover some additional ground here. In 1 John 4:1 we are told, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God“. Simply meaning, if a spirit comes to you claiming to be sent from God we are to “try” them. How do we “try” them and how do we know if the spirit is of God or not?
Verse 3 helps us out, “every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God“. These verses not only document for us that wicked spirits are on the earth, but it also tells us how to identify them. Of course we cast out any evil spirit in the name of Jesus Christ commanding it to leave our presence and go to the Father. Matthew 12:43-45 will also document that evil spirits come upon men.
In Jude 1:6 we are specifically told the angels who became “fallen” during the time of Noah are actually “reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.” They have already been sentenced to death for their sin, however they are locked away in Heaven along with the rest of Satan’s angels (Revelation 12:7-9).
You mentioned the book of Ezekiel and the aircraft that are mentioned there. We covered this in a Bible Q&A session from 3-10-2017, I believe you will find it interesting.
I do not believe any “unidentified” aircraft are from Satan. It is not time for them to be cast out and I do not believe they are flying around. I really do not believe much of the “UFO” claims. In today’s day and age I along with most everyone else has an HD camera and video recording device on our phones yet no one can ever seem to catch one of these “UFOs” in clear footage. It is always a million miles away and grainy. I am not buying any of the stories.
You also said, “I know Satan will be supernatural, will or how do we tell about his angel when they get released?”
“Supernatural” simply meaning Satan will not be in the flesh, but in his real body which is the spiritual body that Paul told us about in 1 Corinthians 15:35-55. When Satan and his angels make their appearance it will not be a secret. Remember, Satan and his angels will appear on earth claiming to be Christ and his angels who have come to bring peace to the world. We covered this in our study, “Who is the Antichrist? Answered.”
I will say, in Chapter 6 of “The Timeline of the Tribulation” we go into great depths on Satan’s appearance and explain exactly what the people will be doing upon his appearance. Stay tuned for that.
Name: Paul L.
Question: How do I prove to my friends, associates, ect., that the rapture is just not Biblical?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Paul, thank you for the question.
I think what you are doing is very admirable. You are seeking Biblical insight in order to identify a false doctrine so you are able to help your family and friends understand God’s Word. I am sure our Father is proud of you Paul.
We have a Bible Study on this subject titled, “The False Hope of the Rapture” which is also available in video format. With the text version of this study you are able to download it into a PDF format for easy sharing and printing.
If I may add, ensure you read and understand the study yourself before passing it on. Then you have proven it to yourself as true and accurate from the scriptures. Once we do that, then we have a truth no one can take away from us and it will help in sharing with our loved ones.
If you have any other questions or receive some from your family and friends send us another question and we are happy to help.

You say that Satan and his followers are held back by Michael in body and soul, only the spirit roams the earth. How then does Satan conceive with Eve if only in spirit?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Sean.
One of the first things we need to ensure we do when we study the Bible is to keep track of our time elements. I will explain.
In our study, “The Garden of Eden: The Origins of Satan’s Seed” we learn the “serpent” in the Garden of Eden was in fact Satan. At that point in time which was roughly 6,000 years ago, Satan was on the earth, full body and soul if you will. In Job 1:7; 2:2 we are told that Satan went “to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it“. Simply meaning, Satan had free reign on the earth in those days. Fast forward to the time of Christ and Matthew 4:1-11 will document that Satan was still on earth when Satan tempted Christ in the wilderness.
In verse 10 Christ told Satan “get thee hence” (Strong’s: 5217) which means “go away“. Christ gave Satan an order and since the time of Christ Satan has not walked upon the earth. Turn your Bible with me to,
7 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,”
The “dragon” is in fact Satan as verse 9 will document for us. Where was the war? Heaven. Where is Satan? Heaven.
The event being described here is the War in Heaven which is future to us. When this “war” is completed Satan will find himself along with his angels standing on the earth. Let us continue.
8 “And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.”
No one that stands against our Father prevails. No one.
9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
Do not read over these verses. Satan and his angels are cast onto the earth.
What we have covered here should document for you Satan at one time was upon the earth, but was removed and he now resides bound in Heaven until the time of his dismissal.
Question: Hi Brandon,
Been watching and reading the articles on the site for a few years now. Appreciate what you do and the energy you put forth to try and help people make sense of this insane world. God Bless you. I have a question about Lucifer’s followers. I’m often confounded as to why they follow, believe in and have placed their faith in a cowardly loser. I know these people are not complete morons as some of the most successful, intelligent, and logical people have pledged their loyalty to this soul. They know who this soul is so they must know who Lucifer’s father is, Our Father. I know these people also know who Jesus is because they spend so much time and effort attempting to remove his name everywhere it can be found. Considering all of this, the followers of Lucifer must know how it all ends for them or maybe they have chosen to ignore all of this? Maybe I’m assume too much and I hope people are more logical than they are. What are your thought all scripture aside?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Billy, thank you for studying with us and the question. You are very welcome, though our Father receives all the credit.
I really do not believe there are any absolutes with most things in life. Some people certainly know they are following Satan and then you have another group of people who are just “useful idiots“.
The “church of Satan” for example is comprised of a lot of atheists who love to make a mockery out of religion. Then you have homosexual groups who push to remove God and place perversion in His place to make them feel better about their lifestyle. No one wants to be told their way of life is wrong whether they believe in God or not.
Then you have the upper tiers of Satan’s children who I believe fully understand exactly who they are and they know whose agenda they are pushing. Personally, I feel they may have some spiritual communication with Satan though that is only my opinion. I do think Ephesians 6 provides a glimpse into this thought.
If we think back to The First Earth Age. Satan had it made, yet he rebelled against our Father as Satan wanted to be God. Now how on earth could Satan really think God was going to give him the Throne? Satan did not care anymore. The only thing that mattered to him was absolute power and he would do anything for it. How or why would one do this? Satan simply stopped loving our Father, just as the people of today.
We also have to remember, Satan is “the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,” (2 Corinthians 4:4). Whether they believe in God or not, whether they believe in Satan or not they have been blinded. Our Father told us if we do not receive the love of the truth He “shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie,” (2 Thessalonians 2:11). We see an entire world that is blinded in this generation.
Please turn your Bible with me to,
7 “How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.”
The time element of this verse is after the Tribulation of Satan. Babylon has now fallen and we are reading about it in this 18th chapter.
The woman is symbolic for Satan’s global government (Revelation 17:18). Even though she see’s her end, she still says, “I sit a queen, and shall see no sorrow“. She is being sentenced to death and still she cannot see it. How amazing and I see Satan doing the same thing. Satan has already been sentenced to death, yet he still carries on. I really feel that he believes if he can turn enough people against God as he did in The First Earth Age when Satan rebelled he will get our Father to spare his life. That is not going to happen though.
When we think about what transpires after the Millennium which is the 1,000 year reign of Jesus Christ, the answer to your question becomes so clear to me.
Multitudes of God’s children measured “as the sand of the sea” are still going to follow Satan upon his release from the pit and stand against God at the end of the Millennium (Revelation 20:7-10). Even after they are in their true body, the spiritual body. Even after they see Christ on the earth and the prophets of old. Even though they will live for 1,000 years with no pain, in an ageless body.
“Why” then is the million dollar question.
In the end Billy, I believe they simply do not love our Father. If they did, they would surely follow Him instead.
