Those who presently dwell upon the earth seem to have one of two reactions to the word “demonic” or “demons.”
1- They believe that demons are part of Satan’s kingdom and that Satan–somehow, some way–has CONTROL over these entities which God’s Word calls “evil spirits” or “unclean spirits.”
Satan, though he may utilize the demonic from time to time; though his aims and demonic aims merge from time to time, has NO control over demons.
However, the deluded followers of Satan will say ANYTHING to glorify their leader.

2- OR, the topic of “demons” is a cause for mirth and laughter.
Those so deceived believe that if another utters the word “demons,” it is a sign of someone who is ‘not all there.’
That this person has a primitive mind which focuses on tales and stories.
Never mind that the complete OPPOSITE is true–as will be clearly demonstrated during the last days.
But here is a thought for the reader to ponder:
“WHAT IF demons are a sort of sophisticated behavior modification tool used by the one who DOES have control of these tormenting spirits?”
During the last days’ judgments, God’s army is shown in God’s Word to be composed of–at least partially–DEMONS.
And those demons are CLEARLY taking orders from God Himself.

NOW, there are a few COMMITTED evil-doers among men who will endure the torture of demonic torment in order that they stay true to their wicked goals.
Might God use demons as a sort of ‘messenger to the foolish’?
MOST men shy away from torment and ANY physical discomfort.
So, might not God use those demons/evil spirits/unclean spirits as a sort of “melancholy messenger“?
To try and turn men–in order for them to avoid even-worse, FUTURE torment and affliction–to God?
Or some similar end times task?
SOME men may be reasoned with.
OTHERS, well, they might need a little “stronger medicine” than the words–powerful though the truth may be–of God’s Word?
Might evil spirits be a sophisticated, advanced form of that ‘stronger medicine?’
Just a thought…

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“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.”
