I just wanted to make a post on the importance of understanding a little bit about the Devil; since many Christians I run into have a misconception of the attributes of the Devil; due to movies and society.
First off, the Devil was an Archangel… Not is an Archangel; since he willingly fell from the grace and power of God. However, Angels have powers and therefore he still possessed those powers.
Furthermore, since it is previously stated that the Devil is a fallen Archangel he therefore is not omniscient. Meaning he is not all knowing of the future, and he is not able to be everywhere at once (omnipresence).
Lastly, what I am leading up to is that the Devil merely is one fallen Arch angel and he uses his army of demons (also fallen angles, but not archangels) to help him orchestrate the horror and fear of being possessed by demons. Therefore, since the Devil does not possess omnipresence it his army of fallen angels that we all encounter at some point in our lives… Not just the Devil himself. Just food for thought. Because when you understand this you begin to understand that the Devil is not even close to being as powerful as God, and the media is trying to cknvey that he is.
