The end of this fallen world is the end of demons. Not only is there nothing to fear, there’s every reason to be grateful for it.


Previous End Times Post


Hello Readers, hope all is well with you. It’s time for another Friday post in my Do Not Fear the End Times series. If you’re reading this on Medium you may have missed Part 11, which I chose to upload only on my website. Check it out here if you like.

I’ve been feeling down the last few days. It’s not the tragic Coronavirus situation that’s got me down, but the horrible injustice of this world. Injustice is everywhere we look.

I was reminded of what I wrote in Part 7 of this series. This is a fallen world. It’s under Satan’s power. This world has always been unjust. Ever since the fall, when mankind was ejected from paradise, this world has been full of evil, pain, and suffering.

Life in a fallen world is hard, whether you’re a Christian or not!

For that reason, in Part 7 I said to rejoice for the end of this fallen world. Revelation 21 and 22 tell us that once God destroys this world, He will create a new heaven and a new earth. In this new world, God will come to live among the humans. There will be no more curse. The world will be fallen no more. It will be a better world. Injustice will be a thing of the past!

That day can’t come soon enough. Until then, we are all called to show patience, endurance, tenacity, and faith. Even when it’s painful to do so. Especially then.

But besides an end to all injustice, besides the restoration of the world, besides God coming to live among the humans, there’s one more beautiful thing to look forward to. The end of this fallen world means an end to demonic spirits.

The Dragon Falls

You probably know this prophecy from Revelation 12, foretelling a war in heaven and the defeat of Satan and his angels:

(7) Then there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, (8) but they did not prevail, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. (9) So the great dragon was thrown down. The old snake, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world, was thrown down to the earth; and his angels were thrown down with him.

Revelation 12:7-9 (CEB)

Although this isn’t the end of the tribulations in Revelation, it does tell us in no uncertain terms that Satan will be defeated. That old snake, the one responsible for the cursed condition of the fallen world we live in, will be defeated and thrown down along with his fallen angels.

One more reason the end of the world can’t come soon enough. The source of every woe we suffer in life will be thrown down. This world is under Satan’s power for now, but after these events it won’t be. One more reason not to be afraid. On the other side of something horrible is something better. The new world that’s coming is God’s plan.

Along with Satan, all his fallen angels will be defeated too. Now this is the icing on the cake. This is the final destruction of the demonic spirits that have plagued all mankind throughout history.

An End to Demons

As you know, in the Gospels Jesus Christ cast out many demonic spirits from people by His divine power and authority. Often He did this just by speaking to them. He had an interesting encounter with two demon-possessed men in Matthew 8:28-29.

(28) When Jesus arrived on the other side of the lake in the country of the Gadarenes, two men who were demon-possessed came from among the tombs to meet him. They were so violent that nobody could travel on that road. (29) They cried out, “What are you going to do with us, Son of God? Have you come to torture us before the time of judgment?”

Matthew 8:28-29 (CEB)

There’s a few things to take away from verse 29 here. All are good things.

First there’s the obvious: The demons fear Jesus Christ and submit to His authority. This is seen time and time again throughout all the Gospels. It’s His power that allows us to be successful in our spiritual warfare. I explained this in Part 8 of Cast Down Jezebel, my miniseries on the Jezebel spirit.

Second, there is an appointed ‘time of judgment’ when these demons will be punished. That’s the End Times, the final judgment.

Third, these demons will be tortured and tormented when this happens. If you desire payback against these invisible enemies, fear not. Vengeance belongs to the LORD, and the LORD will repay (Romans 12:19). God knows every last bit of the torment these demons have caused all mankind. And every last bit of that will be repaid. One more reason the final judgment can’t come soon enough!

The end of this fallen world is the end of demons. Not only is there nothing to fear, there’s every reason to be grateful for it.

The Nephilim: The Origin of the Demons?

I’ve been reading the Books of Enoch lately. I’m still going through them now. I won’t speak on them at length until I’m finished with them. I’ll only say a few things.

First, the Books of Enoch are one more account of the Daniel/Revelation apocalypse prophecy. There are minor differences, of course, but the concept is the same. So that makes the Books of Enoch the earliest version of the prophecy that we have.

Second, and more relevant to today’s topic, the Books of Enoch hint at an astonishing possibility for the origin of demonic spirits: The Nephilim.

Who were the Nephilim? They were evil offspring resulting from fallen angels descending to earth and mating with human women (this was the act that made them fallen). This incident is only hinted at in Genesis 6. The Books of Enoch describe it in much more detail.

The Nephilim were supposedly giants. The Books of Enoch describe them as inherently evil, corrupt to the core and flawed from the start. Although the flood would kill all the Nephilim together with the rest of the planet, the spirits of the Nephilim can’t be killed according to the First Book of Enoch. The spirits of the Nephilim may have survived until today.

So the spirits of the Nephilim could actually be the demons, the demonic spirits that humans have been plagued by ever since the flood. It makes some sense. They’re evil to the core, they still serve Satan and are part of his kingdom (Satan was the first angel to fall). I won’t definitively say that the Nephilim spirits are the origins of the demonic spirits we face today, but it’s possible.

In my series on the Jezebel spirit I said that the spirit itself was far older than the Old Testament Queen Jezebel, who the demon is now named after. Check out Part 2 for that. If we agree with this theory on Nephilim spirits, then there’s the answer as to where the Jezebel spirit originally came from. It’s truly ancient, dating all the way back to before the flood. Same for the rest of the demonic spirits.

And if this is true, allow me to repeat myself … this is more cause for celebration for the end of the world. Finally, this ancient evil inflicted on us by fallen angels will be destroyed. Forever. And they’ll be tormented for what they’ve done too.

What’s not to like about that?

So we have to physically die, so what? No Christian should be afraid of physical ‘death,’ since death is not an end for us, but a beginning of our true eternal life with Christ. Ever since the first End Times post I’ve been saying that.

So this world dies and fades away, so what? This world is fallen. Corrupt. Broken. We haven’t seen God’s true plan yet. What’s coming next is so much better, it’s not even possible to comprehend.

Just some things to think about, to chew on. Just one more reason not to fear the End Times or the destruction of this fallen world. A world without demons? Yes please. I’ll take one. When can we get it?

So now I’ve got one more reason to say “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20). Let’s get this show on the road. I want to go home already. To my real home, that is.

But it’s probably not good for me to be in a hurry. If any of us want to make it into heaven, we have to make sure we’re counted among the ranks of the righteous. We have to overcome our sins. That means we have to truly REPENT, and follow Jesus with all our faith while we still have time. He is the one who can help us overcome our sins. That’s what we have to do. It’s a big job, but don’t worry, we’ve got time to do it.

Stay positive, and don’t be afraid. Start doing the internal work on yourself, and keep your faith strong. It’s not all bad you know, what’s coming our way. We have a world without demons to look forward to! Thank God for that.
