How Angels and Demons Intersect with the Christian Life

November 17, 2019 0 By William Hollis


It’s a good question to ask what
role the demons and angels play in the life of a Christian. In general terms we find in
scripture that angels are ministering spirits but the
scripture doesn’t give us a lot of detail as to what they’re
actually doing right now in our Christian life because the fact
of the matter is the Bible wasn’t written to angels it was
written to us. They are, if you like, the minor
players in the great drama of salvation so I need to be
careful about speculating here. But we do know that they are
guardians, we do know that they’re sent to serve the people
of God and the purposes of God. As for the demonic sadly we know
that they’re deceptive and they also can be involved in the
persecution of God’s people too. We just think of say a passage
like Second Corinthians 11 and we find that Satan, for example,
can be an angel of light working through false teaching but in
First Peter 5 we can find that Satan is like a roaring lion
devouring God’s people through persecution. So there are parts of the world
where we meet the angel of light and there are other parts of the
world as I speak where they’re experiencing the roaring lion.
