What we believe and teach

- Demonology -



Satan (that is, the devil) is a wicked spiritual being which keeps all the world under his power. He is served by wicked spiritual beings, which are these: the principalities, the powers, the rulers of the darkness of this age, and the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Satan is a liar and the father of lies; he is a murderer; he hates mankind and he always pursues what is evil for mankind deceiving men into breaking the commandments of God (thatís why he is called the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience).

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, through His death, destroyed Satan; He triumphed over Satan and all his ministers (the above mentioned spiritual beings) by the cross. Therefore, by faith in the name of Jesus Christ, men can be delivered from the power of Satan.

There are many people who are possessed by demons, that is, evil spirits. Evil spirits cause demon-possessed people to act wickedly against their own bodies and against the other human beings. Demons give supernatural powers to some people, so that they may perform signs and wonders. In the name of Jesus Christ we can cast out evil spirits. Evil spirits know that when they are rebuked and ordered in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of the bodies where they dwell, they must obey. There are some evil spirits that do not go out except by prayer and fasting.

Satan tempts us and he fights against us in order to lead us astray and to cause us to deny the Lord Jesus Christ. In order not to fall victim to the devices of Satan, we must watch and pray without ceasing and we must submit to God and resist Satan; if we do these things, Satanís devices against us will be unsuccessful. We must not make fun of Satan.

One day Satan and all the spiritual beings which serve him will be cast into the everlasting fire, where they will be tormented forever.
