What Happens to Devils and Demons When the Last Days are Finished For These Servants of God?

demon/devil/evil or unclean spirit

Although God’s Word mentions the ultimate end of Satan (the dragon), Satan’s man of sin (false prophet) and the beast (of Satan), as well as almost everyone else, great and small, it does NOT declare what  happens to demons (devils).

“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
–Revelation 19:20,20:10

Demons (devils) are a creation of God and make up a significant portion of God’s end times army.

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.”
–Revelation 9:1-3

These ‘locusts’ are NOT insects as locusts [which are insects] have NO king.

“The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands”
–Proverbs 30:27

YET, these ‘locusts’ of God’s great end times army DO have a king.

“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
–Revelation 9:11

These ‘locusts’ are also described in Joel’s second chapter.

“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?”
–Joel 2:1-3,7-11

Their appearance is described in Joel.

“The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. “
–Joel 2:4-6

Which very closely resembles the appearance as it is described in Revelation.

“And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.”
–Revelation 9:7-9

To any who may have doubts: God Himself declares that he created ALL things–including devils.

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”
–Isaiah 45:7

So, these demons (devils) serve the God who created them during the last days.

To that end, they make up a significant portion of the army of God which afflicts Jerusalem.

What is their ultimate destiny?

Are they rewarded for their service?

“For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.  Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.”
–Joel 1:6,11

BUT, there is no mention of what happens to these devils ANYWHERE in God’s Word, though it does suggest that God will deal with them in a Godly manner.

“In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit.”
–Zephaniah 1:9

Perhaps it is more accurate to portray these devils as being USED BY God to further His ends, rather than ‘servants’ who totally do His bidding.

So, while God’s Word does NOT explicitly detail what happens to the demons which make up much of God’s end times army, it does implicitly suggest their ultimate disposition.

HAS the reader ever thought of demons (devils)?

OR, does the reader believe the many stories of man concerning these demonic entities?

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.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

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.”
-–Romans 1:16

Satan is a Very REAL, Very Accomplished Enemy of Man

Satan Falling

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”
–1PETER 5:8

[The world is known for saying, “Forewarned is forearmed.” But that worldly advice goes out the window when the topic is ‘spiritual deception.’]

During the end times–particularly during the last days of the end times–Satan (the devil) is portrayed by his minions working the Corporate Media in SEVERAL different ways.

Satan is either treated as a “figment,” a fiction, an invention of an over-active CHRISTIAN imagination.

Modern man is much too intelligent to believe the stories of Satan the devil.

OR

Satan is presented as ‘misunderstood’ by man–and is a worthy entity to admire.

Satan has been SLANDERED to modern man by the lying accounts in God’s Word.

THEREFORE, in an effort to combat the lying propaganda of the Father of Liars (Satan), ETPR presents–as a resource–more than 100 articles on various aspects of the devil (Satan).

When Jesus Christ walked the earth the FIRST TIME, he warned about Satan.

Jesus warned that there was ‘NO truth in him (Satan).’

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. “
–John 8:44

On One Side Are Witches, Wizards and ALL Who Consult Familiar or Demonic Spirits; On the Other Are the VERY Clear Promises of God

DEMONS vs GOD's WORD

MANY are those who feel they are “beating the system” by consulting familiar or demonic spirits.

FEW are those who KNOW better.

The FEW are those who BELIEVE God’s Word to be TRUE.

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
–Deuteronomy 18:10-12

On one side are the trinkets and parlor games which those who consult demonic spirits reap; on the other side are the very clear promises of God to ALL who resist such blandishments.

“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
–Luke 10:19

“And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
–Romans 16:20

“And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.”
–Matthew 10:1

“And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits”
–Mark 6:7

Yes, some of the accounts are what Jesus said to the original twelve disciples. BUT, those promises were the first ones made for generations of followers of Jesus Christ.

On one side are ALL who consult with illegitimate supernatural power.

MORE: The Normalizing of Illegitimate Supernatural Power in the End Times

MORE: Illegitimate Supernatural Power is Quite Common in the End Times

MORE:  END TIMES SURVIVAL: We Fight Spiritual Battles, Not Physical Ones

On the other side are all of those who, down through the centuries, have stood on the very clear promises of God.

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
–Ephesians 6:11-13

The world has taken to promoting the demonic (devils) by the unfulfilled promise of FUN!

Believers know that such promises are come-ons for those who traffic in self-destruction.

WHICH side is the reader on?

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.

The Power in the Name of Jesus

POWER

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
–Ephesians 6:12

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”
–2CORINTHIANS 10:3-5

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
–Hebrews 4:121

Although not many moderns put a lot of faith in God’s Word, when the going gets tough in the last days, it would GREATLY behoove them to do so.

PARTICULARLY, in the power that is in the NAME OF JESUS.

This power was evidenced while Jesus walked the earth almost 2000 years ago.

“After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”
–Luke 10:1,17-20

NOW, the modern may read this and let loose with a small chuckle.

“What nonsense!”

BUT by acting in such a manner, the modern most likely does NOT know he is fulfilling God’s Word.

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”
–Psalm 1:1-3

And one thing the modern may want to keep in mind.

When the living is easy and the times appear to be NOT BAD, it is a LOT easier to mock and scoff at those things the deceived mind does NOT understand.

BUT when times are hard and a man if surrounded by the fear and terror of those things he never thought possible, it probably is a good time to begin checking the condition of one’d spiritual weapons.

Demons As a Sophisticated Behavior Modification Tool

MAGICIAN and DEMONS

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.

The Many Stories Told By Satan’s Storytellers to Stroke Satan’s Ego

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.

MORE: MORE On the Demons of Joel and Revelation

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…

“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. ”

The Bottomless Pit

ABYSS

A recent piece (The Plague of Demons in Joel and Revelation)–as well as a newer one (MORE On the Demons in Joel and Revelation) which more closely examines those beings–features mentions of the bottomless pit (sometimes referred to as “the abyss“).

Since so few seemed aware of the bottomless pit, it was decided to provide some basic info on that place of containment.

1- Bottomless Pit (or The abyss)

In the Bible, the abyss is an unfathomably deep or boundless place. The term comes from the Greek ἄβυσσος, meaning bottomless, unfathomable, boundless. It is used as both an adjective and a noun. It appears in the Septuagint, the earliest Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, and in the New Testament. It translates the Hebrew words tehom, תהום‎, deep), tsulah צולה, sea-deep, deep flood) and rachabh רחב‎, spacious place). In the original sense of the Hebrew tehom, the abyss was the primordial waters or chaos out of which the ordered world was created (Genesis 1:2) . The term could also refer literally to the depths of the sea, the deep source of a spring or the interior of the earth.

In a later extended sense in intertestamental Jewish literature, the abyss was the underworld, either the abode of the dead (sheol) or eventually the realm of the rebellious spirits (Hell). In the latter sense, specifically, the abyss was often seen as a prison for demons. This usage was picked up in the New Testament.

2- There are several references to the bottomless pit (abyss) in God’s Word.

In Jude 1:6 and 2PETER, the bottomless pit is mentioned as the place where rebellious angels are locked away until the last days.

“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
–Jude 1:6

“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment”
–2PETER 2:4

[The greek word <a href=”https://biblehub.com/text/luke/8-31.htm”>ἄβυσσον</a&gt; (abyss) is used for both of these references.]

3- In Luke 8:31, Jesus is begged by the entities in the Gadarene demoniac to NOT send them to the abyss.

“And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.”

So, it appears that both fallen angels AND demons may be locked away in the bottomless pit.

4- Revelation 20:1-3 informs the reader that, after Jesus returns to earth, the bottomless pit will serve as a containment area for the dragon (Satan): Satan will be chained and locked away in the bottomless pit for one thousand years.

“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”

5- The (fallen) angel in charge of those locked in the bottomless pit is named Abaddon.

“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
–Revelation 9:11

Apollyon = “a destroyer.”

6- The end times beast of the dragon–who will be worshiped by ALL of mankind–comes from the bottomless pit.

“The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”
–Revelation 17:8

7- This beast is responsible for the killing of the two witnesses of God.

“And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.”
–Revelation 11:7

And THAT is about ALL that God’s Word has to say about the bottomless pit.

Everything else that is claimed seems to be speculation on the part of the claimant.

DID the reader previously think much about the bottomless pit (abyss)?

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.

MORE On the Demons of Joel and Revelation

MORE

A reader who had a GREAT disagreement with what was written in a recent ETPR article (The Plague of Demons in Joel and Revelation) not only made us stop and think, but ALSO led to some additional research on our part.

The reader’s MAIN disagreement with the article was that ‘demons are not in the bottomless pit.  Fallen angels are in the bottomless pit and fallen angels are NOT demons.’

Upon receiving this plaint, our IMMEDIATE thought was, “Oh no!  We messed up!

Our SECOND thought was “We had better make SURE we messed up.

Which is the MAIN reason behind this clarification (post).

The reader seems to have gotten ALMOST ALL of what he wrote right.

1- Fallen angels are NOT demons.

Regardless of how many ‘Bible teachers’ and ‘scholars’ and professional preachers in the pulpits might say otherwise.

God’s Word is clear: fallen angels are confined (since their rebellion against God) IN CHAINS: fallen angels are NOT running around causing troubles, afflictions and torment to man.

2- Fallen angels are CONFINED; demons (evil spirits) are NOT.

“… God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment”
2PETER 2:4

“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
–Jude 1:6

These two preceding verses appear to be the basis of a belief that the bottomless pit is the abode of fallen angels.

And that belief would NOT be mistaken, as God’s Word is the ONLY truth in the world today.

[In a very SPECIFIC instance, several fallen angels are released a little early from their captivity by God for a SPECIFIC end times task.

“And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.”
–Revelation 9:13-15]

The ONE point of disagreement seems to be whether demons (evil spirits) are ALSO housed in the bottomless pit.

Apparently demons may also be sent to the bottomless pit for ‘safekeeping.’

This is from Luke 8:31, where the devils (demons) “in the country of the Gadarenes” urgently petitioned Jesus NOT to send them to the bottomless pit.

“And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.”

The word translated as “the deep” is the SAME Greek word used for “abyss” and/or “bottomless pit.”

ἄβυσσον

Apparently, at least Jesus could command demons to the bottomless pit.

So, apparently the bottomless pit holds more than fallen angels.

Though fallen angels ARE the bottomless pit’s most well-known residents.

DID the reader ever wonder where fallen angels are kept until the day they receive their final judgment?

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.
