Theology Tuesday – Demons

Last week, we looked at angels.  What about demons? What does the Bible say?

R.C. Sproul wrote:

Yes, there is a Devil. He is our archenemy. He will do anything in his power to bring misery into our lives. But Satan is not sovereign. Satan does not hold the keys of death.

Jesus holds the keys to death, and Satan cannot snatch those keys out of His hand (Rev. 1:17-18). Christ’s grip is firm. He holds the keys because He owns the keys. All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Him. That includes all authority over life and death. The angel of death is at His beck and call.

Here are two recommend resources for a short study
