Angels were created beings (Ps. 148:2-5). They are an innumerable company (Heb. 12:22; Rev. 5:11). They are ministering spirits carrying out God’s providence (Heb. 1:7, 14). They are finite beings although superior to man in power and might (2 Pet. 2:11).
- Satan is a real personality, the chief of those angels who fell with him when he rose up in pride to rebel against the Almighty God (Isa. 14:12-15; Ezek. 28:12-17; 2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6, Rev. 12:4).
- Satan is engaged in opposing God and His program (Mt. 13:24-30). He employs demons or fallen angels to carry out his work in the world (Eph. 6:12; Cal. 2:15; Lk. 11:15-19).
- Satan will ultimately be cast into the Lake of Fire, where he and his followers will be tormented forever and ever (Rev. 20:7-10).
