The Bible contains an extensive list of the names of other gods, goddesses, and hybrid creatures that were worshiped by mankind. The fame of some of these beings has continued on into modern times, while others have been forgotten. While many Christians still believe that most of these gods were simply idols, Paul refers to them as "devils". "But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils." - 1 Corinthians 10:20 While idolatry was a major issue in the past, we must remember that the idols were created to represent supernatural beings ancient cultures claim to have encountered. If Paul's words are true, then th...
There is nothing in the Bible that generates more questions than angels and their ability to have sex. The questions come in all forms but the most common questions are: Do angels have a penis? Do angels have a vagina? Do angels have a gender? Can angels have sex? Can angels have children? Most of these questions tend to be asked after believers learn the truth about the events in Genesis 6 and start to dig deeper into the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. Many believers have been deceived into believing that the events in Genesis 6 were just believers mixing with unbelievers, but that's not what happened at all. The Sons of God and The Daughters of Men Much of the confusion surrounding the events in Genesis 6 are due to teachers and preachers that lack...

Show Information Intro: Show #8 Brought To You By: Beyond Flesh and Blood Days of Noah Subject: The 15 Types of Spirits In The Bible Listener Question “Dear Minister Fortson, Hi I just wanted to ask you another question who do you think is “The Angel of the Lord?” Why in some verses does he allow people to worship him? Well I hope you can answer this one. Thanks.” – Amanda Show Notes On Spirits In The Bible
Demons are one of the most controversial topics in the Bible and in modern medicine. There are many beliefs about demons, but most of them are built on myth, legend, and hearsay. The word demon is used as an all encompassing definition that applies to all of the following terms: Evil Spirit Unclean Spirit In this study, we're going to take an in depth look at the origin of demons according to the Bible. The Origin of The Shed The Shed were well known throughout the Middle East as powerful spirits. The first place in the Bible that we encounter the Shed is in reference to Israel worshiping them. “They sacrificed unto devils (Shed), not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.” – Deuteronomy 32:17 T
There are many that believe that people become angels after death, but that's not exactly a Biblical belief. Because of this, the issue is usually not addressed and people continue believe that angels are the spirits of dead people. While the Bible is unclear about exactly what angels are, here is what we learn in the Old Testament: “For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.” – Psalm 8:5 According to the Old Testament, while still in the flesh, people are just a little lower than the angels. The reason we know that this is true is because of a reference that the writer of Hebrews makes about Jesus. “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glor
This is an interesting observation that I made while I was writing, Beyond Flesh and Blood: The Ultimate Guide To Angels and Demons. For those of you that haven’t read it, the following POSSIBILITY was covered in one section of the book. I could be wrong, but thought it might be worthy of further study. “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.” – Daniel 10:13 The section in bold is the specific area of interest we are going to focus on. It was during my research into the different ranks of angels that I first really paid attention to the phrase. I decided to use the Strong’s to look up the word translated as “chief”, and here is wha
How much do you really know about angels, and how much of what you think you know is actually found in the Bible? The reason angels are so interesting is because the Bible doesn’t tell us everything about them. They are mysterious supernatural beings that show up all over scripture, and yet, we have no idea what they do when they aren’t being seen by humans. This post is a follow up to 21 Things Your Pastor Won’t Teach You About Angels. This list is made up of 10 things you’ve probably been told about angels, but they’re not actually found in the Bible. If you have a few extra minutes, here is a podcast that I did to answer quite a few questions that I’ve received about angels here on my website. 1. Fallen Angels Are Demons – This is one of my favori
Believe it or not, there are just some things that most pastors won't teach in church because of their controversial nature. Here's a list of 21 things that your pastor won't teach you about angels: 1. Angels Were Called Sons of God In The Old Testament “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” – Job 38:4-7 2. Angels Are Described As Having A Gender “Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the begin
How do we jump to the conclusion that all angels are male, based on only 4 names in the Bible? Then there’s the mention of two female beings in Zechariah, which also seem to be angels, but many Christians absolutely refuse to acknowledge that God might actually have created female angels. The reason that the issue is avoided or denied is because angels don’t marry in heaven, and they would have to explain the need for both genders of angels. Then of course, they have to make speculation about sex, and it wouldn’t fit with the traditions of men. So it’s simply avoided in most cases. However, I’ve always been curious about the mention of female angels, demons, goddesses, and other supernatural female entities. The reason for this fascination was because I always hea
