I want to talk to you about the devil, demons, demon oppression, and the operation of the spiritual gift discerning of spirits (I Cor 12:10). We know from the Scriptures that demons have to do with the fall of Satan. God did not create him as he is now. We read that he was perfect until iniquity was found in him (Ezekiel 28:15). God sis not create him a devil. We read that he was lifted up because of his beauty (Ezekiel 28:17). We also read that in the beginning of time, even before man was made, Satan ruled and had a kingdom. For he said that he would exalt his throne (Isaiah 14:13-14). It certainly could be that Satan did rule upon the earth in a pre-Adamic kingdom because when God made man He told him to be fruitful and multiply and to replenish the earth. It is possible that demons on earth today could be the spirits of that pre-Adamic creation. In my opinion that is the case. We do not have as much light on this subject as would like. But we have all we need to know, and we do get gleams of light here and there about it.
