Evil Spirits Are Not Stupid

One of the more popular of Satan’s lies–WHICH IS ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY PROMOTED by the devil’s network of Sunday social clubs called “the churches”–is the one about how Satan rules over evil spirits/demons/devils.

Satan is a personal, spiritual being who rebelled against God and leads a spiritual kingdom composed of demonic powers who oppose God’s purposes through various “schemes” that are designed to keep men and women out of God’s kingdom and to render Christians immature and ineffective in reaching the world with the gospel of Christ.
Satan and Demons


This self-serving lie from the enemy was referred to YEARS AGO in these pages.

Satan does NOT control the devils/demons/evil spirits of this world.

God does.

God controls devils/demons/evil spirits.

As the creator of all, this makes perfect sense.

It is also biblical, as ALL verses from the Old Testament concerning evil spirits affirm that evil spirits are sent FROM GOD.

“Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech: That the cruelty done to the threescore and ten sons of Jerubbaal might come, and their blood be laid upon Abimelech their brother, which slew them; and upon the men of Shechem, which aided him in the killing of his brethren.”
–Judges 9:23-24

“But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him. And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee. Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.”
–1SAMUEL 16:14-16
Devils, Demons, Evil or Familiar Spirits: Ten Observations

Satan does NOT control devils/demons/evil spirits–though he will utilize their power whenever possible.

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
–Revelation 16:13-14
— The Many Stories Told By Satan’s Storytellers to Stroke Satan’s Ego

NOWHERE in God’s Word is it written that Satan controls devils/evil spirits/demons.

In fact, quite the opposite is written in Scripture: that these ‘unclean spirits’ come from God, NOT Satan.

This information is VERY IMPORTANT to understand some very basic truths about the end times.

One of these misconceptions took the form of a question several weeks ago.

“Why do demons work for Satan?  Can’t they see the devil is a loser?  Demons are supposed to be a LOT smarter than man.  Can’t demons figure this out?”

It was then explained that demons do NOT work for Satan. Satan has no more control over demons than the average wicked worker of iniquity does.

The story about Satan controlling an empire of evil demons is one that most likely was manufactured and then promoted by one of Satan’s deluded followers.

It is probably more popular than the one about ‘demons being fallen angels.’

NEITHER is true.

Part of the answer to the man who posed the original question a few weeks ago was

“Evil spirits are not stupid–they are evil. Why work for a loser (the devil)?  Exactly!  Evil spirits do NOT work for Satan. Evil spirits are sent from God Himself.”

HAS the reader EVER asked himself where evil spirits come from?

OR, does the reader believe that ‘evil spirits’ do NOT exist–except in the minds of those primitive enough to believe such things?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
