Are Demons Real?

It seems like the older we get, the more we believe that the spiritual realm and the supernatural are just fairy tales. We become more and more skeptical of testimonies of the spiritual world, especially in terms of belief in demons, which is even taboo in the church. We’ve become desensitized to everything that we can’t see, hear, or touch. Though many don’t believe in demons, many have no other choice but to, because they actually see them. In today’s world seeing demons is seen as a mental illness, and many are actually hospitalized for being able to. Many even question if demons are even in the Bible. Many believe that demons aren’t real, they’re just misunderstood ghosts. Join ArieRashelle as she strives to answer the question, Are Demons Real?

Fun Facts

  • Demons are only mentioned in the Old Testament twice. We see entities that are translated as goat demons, but that is actually the Hebrew word se’irim’. Whereas the word demon is the Hebrew word sedim. They are two completely different words, with different meanings.
  • 1/3 of Jesus’ ministry was casting out demons. Everywhere He went He casted out demons, whether it was in the Synagogue or out in the fields.
  • After casting out a demon in front of the Pharisees, Jesus said, “the Kingdom of God has come.” Before then, Jesus quieted everyone and told them not to tell anyone. In fact even His first miracle, turning water into wine, Jesus said His time hadn’t yet come. Even before that miracle, Jesus (as well as John the Baptist) preached that the Kingdom of God is at hand, but when casting out the demons, Jesus said “the Kingdom of God has come.”
    • Matthew 3:1-2
    • Matthew 4:17
    • Matthew 12:22-32
    • Luke 11:20
  • During the End Times after the Sixth Trumpet is blown, many people are killed by plagues, but the interesting thing is what John reveals is their response, “20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, 21 nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.” (Revelation 9:20-21) They refused to give up worshiping demons. The worship of demons will be one of the greatest downfalls of humanity in the Last Days.
  • According to Paul, teachings of demons are 1 Timothy 4:1-5, ” Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer. “ The teachings of demons will be forwarded by liars who don’t have a conscience, forbid marriage, and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving. Just think about that…


A Woman with Epilepsy

While working with the homeless, we met a woman who suffered from epilepsy since the age of 16 (she is now in her 40s). It wasn’t even that we just heard that she suffered from epilepsy, but we witnessed it every time we saw her, which was at least once a week. She had prescription medication that she had been on for over 30 years. During one visit she just kept having seizure after seizure after seizure. Celia decided enough was enough and we needed to help her, so Celia laid hands on her and started casting out a demon. As Celia and Kenny were praying and casting out the demon out of the woman, Arie was walking around the perimeter of the camp when she felt something light on the outside of the camp, a good presence trying to get into the camp but couldn’t. As she began to feel that presence get stronger, Celia and Kenny continued to pray and cast out the demon, when they saw the woman’s facial features begin to change. She began growling and becoming more animal-like. After a few more minutes of prayer the demon left the woman, and she stopped seizing and her facial features returned to normal. It’s now been almost two years, and the woman has not had a seizure since.

Arie’s First Encounter with a Demon

Arie was born with the ability to see, hear, and feel what others may not be able to. From a young age, she was able to see the unseen spiritual realm. Once when she 4 or 5, she was lying in bed, and a spirit entered the room. Its height was about the height of an average man, it was slender, had a long round white/grey face, and had a suit on. As it walked towards her side of the bed, as her older sister Britni was asleep on the other side, it began to speak to her. “I’m your dad. It’s okay, I’m your father. I’m your dad.” Once the adrenaline from fear finally kicked in, Arie screamed for her dad, Kenny, which only made the entity try to convince her more. Once Kenny walked into the room, the entity disappeared. Arie has never seen the entity since, but to this day, she still subconsciously sleeps in the center of the bed out of a subconscious fear of it returning.
