What Are Evil Spirits and Bible Demons?

The Origin Of Evil Spirits In The Bible

Evil Spirits Bible Warning ... Just the sound of the words "evil spirits" or "Bible demons" can bring a tingle to your spine. We are taught in the Bible that spirits, both good and bad, are all around us. But, what of these evil spirits, who according to Scripture are just hanging around and assisting Satan who seeks our fall and if possible ... Even to devour us.

1 Peter 5:8-9

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

What is the origin of evil spirits in the Bible? Who or what are evil spirits in the Bible before they became Satan's helpers? Where did the evil spirits in the Bible come from and how do evil spirits in the Bible affect you today? We will begin by sharing that even God's Angels are spirits:

Hebrews 1:13-14

13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

In fact, God is a Spirit.

John 4:24

God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in Truth.

Pretty wild huh? You will definitely discover in this evil spirits Bible study that in the world, in which we live, some things that occur are hard to understand and even harder to believe. There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another more more powerful force out there who is protecting us from the enemy of our soul known as Satan; it is the Holy Spirit ... This is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it and your soul is one that is being sought after.

Let's take a quick Evil Spirits Bible field trip into the mysterious realm found within Enoch prophecies who explains well the answer to ... What are evil spirits in the Bible? We find that there are some writings who many claim were written by Enoch from the Bible and the writings were passed down through the generations much like the Bible was.

But ... Is the book of Enoch factual? In particular the parts that speak of the origin of evil spirits in the Bible. It is the following evil spirits Bible Scripture which caused us to share certain aspects of the Book of Enoch with you as to answer the question ... What are evil spirits in the Bible? Check this out:

Jude 1:14

And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of His Saints,

This Scripture clearly suggests that the Book of Jude was referring to specific writings from Enoch (which are not in the Bible) which gives validity to the claims that Enoch did have some type of writings and as you will discover, much of this prophecy was concerning evil spirits. So, let's learn more about Enoch himself and what it is that he shared about Evil Spirits and Bible demons, not to mention his End Times prophecies.

The Bible shares little with us about this individual named Enoch which is why many lift an eyebrow when it comes to the writings of Enoch. But, let's delve into what the Bible did share and decide for ourselves what we think ...

1 He was the seventh in the bloodline from Adam.
2 He was the great grandpa of Noah.
3 He was on Earth until he was 365 years old.
4 He did not die. He was taken from Earth by God.

Genesis 5:21-24

21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:
22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Evil Spirits Bible Side Note: Methuselah lived to be older than all others in the Bible - 969 years. This should give you an idea of the timing of Enoch's presence on Earth. He was here quite early on. Definitely before the great flood. Now, let's focus on this: Enoch walked with God and did not die, but was rather "taken by God" ideology ... This is confirmed by Paul:

Hebrews 11:5

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

Much of the Book of Enoch has stories related to Bible Scripture and some of the Bible Scripture is in harmony with the words in the Book of Enoch. For example this upcoming story on the origin of evils spirits and answer to, what are evil spirits:

Genesis 6:1-6

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

Evil Spirits Bible and Enoch Similarities
Sad Origin of Evil Spirits in the Bible

The Bible reveals that before the Flood of Noah's time, there were some angels in Heaven that came down from Heaven and had children with human women and mixed the Angelic with humanity. They were giants.

In the book of Enoch - Chapters 6-16, It speaks of the same story, but elaborates a little more as to what happened next. It says the Angels who chose to leave Heaven to have a union with human women were to be sentenced to hell.

Peter says the same thing:

2 Peter 2:4-5

4 For if God spared not the angels (Fallen) that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

According to the Book of Enoch, these fallen angels who had sex with human women who bore the giants, also taught the world vanity, pride and taught them how to build weapons and every foul thing.

God saw that the humans on earth were following after the fallen angels and becoming a byproduct of evil themselves. Chaos and Sin were the obvious result. After seeing these heartbreaking events, God flooded the world in order to cleanse the world which He had created. Some ask ... Why did God allow all that? Why not just keep them from doing it in the first place? The answer is that God did not create us to just be mindless puppets. He gave all of us Free Will. The ability to choose for ourselves. Mankind just kept choosing wrong.

Let's get back to our Evil Spirits in the Bible study ... At that time, God took the fallen angels who had CON-demned God's humans and placed the fallen angels in Hell. The children (the giants) who were the offspring of the human women and the fallen angels ... God spared and are now the evil spirits and Bible demons who work for Satan seeking our demise and who we have to deal with now by seeking ways of how to ward off evil spirits. That is the story of the origin of evil spirits.

Book of Enoch, Chapter 15, Verses 8-12

8 And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth,
9 and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin;
10 they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. {As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.}
11 And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless
12 hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.

We now know the true answer to the questions ... What is the origin of evil spirits and what are evil spirits in the Bible? They are the creation of a sin committed between fallen angels and human women. They were giants and became evil spirits after their folks were judged for overflowing sin which caused the great flood to be needed to cleanse the earth. You will see as we continue our evil spirits Bible expedition more about how Satan now uses these evil spirits to do his will. But first:

Again a question comes to mind ... Why didn't God just sentence the "giants" to hell along with their fallen angel dads? Because that would not be fair or create balance to the chaos. Remember the "free will" policy that we discussed? These soon to be evil spirits had no choice in their birth, but they did have choices after seeing what happened to the fallen angels and will be judged for their choices, in the end, just as everyone and everything will be at the Great White Throne Judgment.

Here is an evil spirits Bible Head Scratcher ... Did you know that God also used these evil spirits and Bible demons to punish sinners in the Old Testament ... And probably still does so now.

Judges 9:23

Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech.


1 Samuel 16:14

But the Spirit of the LORD (Holy Spirit) departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.

What Are Evil Spirits Tidbits of Truth ... According to the evil spirits in the Bible verses, evil spirits can be made to depart with music from a soul of God.

1 Samuel 16:23

And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.

Some evil spirits have names.

Spirit of jealousy can come upon someone.

Numbers 5:14

Lying spirits can cause men to false prophecy.

1 Kings 22:22-23

22 And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And He said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.
23 Now therefore, behold, the Lord hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the Lord hath spoken evil concerning thee.

One was in a woman 18 years.

Luke 13:11

Acts 16:16

And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying.

A perverse spirit can be sent by the Lord.

Isaiah 19:14

The LORD hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.

One can be possessed by a dumb spirit.

Mark 9:17

And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;

We find in our evil spirits Bible study adventure that one can be possessed by an unclean spirit.

Mark 1:23

And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,

Devils can cause sickness in bodies they dwell in.

Matthew 17:18

And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
